This Space of Writing

The proliferating memories engage yet lack the mystique and sense of possibility
innate to fiction, and instead rely on the mystique of the author who writes it. As,
inevitably, we associate what is written with the life of a flesh-and-blood
individual suffering family bereavements and panic ... epiphanic moment of clarity
that pushed [him] through a crack in the universe”, one that marks the transition

What does 'literature' mean in our time? While names like Proust, Kafka and Woolf still stand for something, what that something actually is has become obscured by the claims of commerce and journalism. Perhaps a new form of attention is required. Stephen Mitchelmore began writing online in 1996 and became Britain's first book blogger soon after, developing the form so that it can respond in kind to the singular space opened by writing. Across 44 essays, he discusses among many others the novels of Richard Ford, Jeanette Winterson and Karl Ove Knausgaard, the significance for modern writers of cave paintings and the moai of Easter Island, and the enduring fallacy of 'Reality Hunger', all the while maintaining a focus on the strange nature of literary space. By listening to the echoes and resonances of writing, this book enables a unique encounter with literature that many critics habitually ignore. With an introduction by the acclaimed novelist Lars Iyer, This Space of Writing offers a renewed appreciation of the mystery and promise of writing.

Avital Ronell asks why "there is no culture without drug culture." Tracing and tracking the zones of modern dependencies, she deals with the usual drugs and alcohol (and their celebrities: Freud's cocaine, Baudelaire's hashish, the Victorians' laudanum), and moves beyond them to addictive mappings that are culturally accepted - an insatiable appetite for romance novels, for instance, and romance itself as well as the satellite technologies of our everyday existence.

Mystique Melodies By: V. I. Porter Greek mythology tells the story of Orpheus, son of Calliope, and his love for Eurydice. But what if that isn’t the true story? What if there’s more? In Mystique Melodies, V. I. Porter takes the familiar Greek myths and provides a new twist to the stories. Through his work, Porter uses the classic tales to create a larger focus on honesty, values, love, and commitment. With the story of Orpheus as the framework, Porter brings his own words to drive home a crucial point: let go of self-doubt. As Porter weaves his tale, readers are left to wonder about the mythology they thought they knew and what could have been.

In firm agreement with Henry Steele Commager's observation that ?Henry Adams illuminates, better than any of his contemporaries,” the course of American history, William Wasserstrom appraises the force of Adams's mind in styling, dramatizing, and embodying a postmodern myth of disintegration and chaos. Focusing on Adams and analyzing literature that reviews the myth of disin­tegration, Wasserstrom records the de­cline of the doctrine of perfectability as a critical feature of national sensibility. This he sees as a central trait shared by generations of writers who character­istically associated their private aspira­tions as artists with the American dream. Through literary and cultural history he inquires into the character of a society whose leading writers identify their personal fates with the progress of civilization in the United States. Wasserstrom explores the fiction of Irving, Cooper, Hawthorne, Stowe, Howells, Henry James, William James, Stephen Crane, Henry Adams, Eugene O'Neill, D. H. Lawrence, Stein, Fitz­gerald, William Carlos Williams, and Kenneth Burke.
