Description du produit
Revue de presse
As the title promises, the essays do indeed take a fresh look at what Miller (1891-1980) achieves in his work, and many contributors make useful contrasts to earlier critical approaches so that the reader will appreciate just why Miller's stock has risen in the 21st century. Though the number of instructors who incorporate Miller in their syllabi is lower than it should beas Louis Renza (emer., Dartmouth) points out in his forewordthose who do will find this collection a gem. And students looking for insights into literature that can be challenging but well worth unraveling will not be disappointed. The array of contributors is impressive, and the neat synopses of the essays in the introduction will be convenient for researchers looking for commentary on particular issues or themes. Dialogues such as this may well encourage readers to shed outdated misconceptions and instead embrace the style, ideas, and contradictions that make Miller so provocative. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty. --CHOICE
An invaluable contribution to the ongoing reevaluation of Henry Miller as a major American writer, this volume draws on scholarship from around the world to offer the best collection of new essays on his life and work to appear in book form for many years. Karl Orend, Former Member of the Advisory Board of the Henry Miller Memorial Library, USA, Editorial Director of Alyscamps Press, Paris, and author of Henry Millers Angelic Clown (212) and The Brotherhood of Fools & Simpletons: Gods and Devils in Henry Millers Utopia (25) Henry Miller: New Perspectives offers an exciting collection of essays that illuminate Miller and his work. The essays use a wide range of theoretical approaches and demonstrate that Miller's narratives definitely reward close reading. The volume also treats Miller holistically and considers a variety of his texts and concerns. Particularly absorbing is the way that the book combines fresh reexaminations of classic Miller themes with penetrating investigations of previously unexplored--and unexpected--topics. In short, the book indeed provides a host of """"new perspectives"""" on Henry Miller and should reinvigorate debate over a shamefully neglected American writer. --Roger Jackson, Co-author and Publisher of Henry Miller: A Bibliography of Primary Sources (2 volumes)and Managing Editor of Nexus: The International Henry Miller Journal --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché.
