The Literary Tourist: Readers and Places in Romantic and Victorian Britain

You've already read the book - why visit the place? When and why did readers start visiting sites with literary associations - whether writers' graves, birthplaces, houses, or the setting of their novels? This original, witty, illustrated study offers the first analytical history of the rise and development of literary tourism in nineteenth-century Britain, associated with authors from Shakespeare, Gray, Keats and Burns to Scott, the Brontë sisters, and Thomas Hardy. Indispensable for the student of literature, the travel literature and the tourism of the nineteenth century.

Journey Across Three Worlds: Science-Fiction Stories

One more collection of Soviet SF stories now lies in your hands. Seven stories by ten authors. Like ten people talking around one table. Collections of stories by different writers always resemble round-table conferences. All the more so is this true of science fiction, as a genre that bubbles with polemic zest. Indeed, I would compare this more to a students' debating society in some smoke-filled room, in whose blue haze the flushed faces and flashing eyes can barely be distinguished. Here, one declaims with inspired ardour, another grins wryly, as he intersperses some snide remark, a third thumps the table, his voice hoarse with passion. Students, indeed, most young folk, for that matter, adore to talk of love and learning, of life and its meaning, of virtuous and wicked ways, of the problems that face man today and tomorrow, and of how all this is expressed by writer and artist. Science fiction, in effect, does the same, with, perhaps, as is only natural, a somewhat greater emphasis on the problems of tomorrow and of how best to convey their substance. Soviet SF lies well within the mainstream of Soviet writing, generally, and is as diverse in theme and imagery. In the fifty odd years of its existence, its course has been a chequered one, veering with all the turns in the tide of Soviet history, particularly during the times of the First Five -Year Plan and World War Two, but more so, when Sputnik shot up to furrow the unexplored outer fields of space, and the now famous dispute between poet and physicist began. Some twenty seven years ago, Boris Slutsky, a rather well-known Soviet poet - who is no writer of SF, mind you! - produced the following quatrain, which is often quoted in this country: It is the poet versus physicist; One is out, the other in, today. Perhaps a general law is this, And no accidental step astray? Soviet science fiction also has its physicists and its poets. The physicists believe in the omnipotence of the exact sciences, in mathematics and the machine. They claim that every single problem can be pinned down to the drawing board and can be solved in laboratory retorts, that everything can be done by computer and robot. The poets are sceptical. Not for them are the formulas of the physicists, but rather the feelings and promptings of the heart. True enough, the machine can make life easier; but, they say, it can also become an onerous, oppressive burden. This book, as you will have probably noticed, is entitled Journey Across Three Worlds. It is called thus after the novelet presented herein by the Abramovs, father and son. No generational animosity here, as you see! Quite the contrary. One is Seventy odd years old, the other only thirty, one is a professional writer, with numerous novels, stories and essays to his credit, the other is an engineer of the breed inspired by Sputnik, and for whom all of Soviet SF that came before serves as but the launching pad for blasting off into the incredible unknown. And, indeed, everything that comes from under their pen - pens? - is steeped in the latest and most unbelievable of hypotheses, in the wildest of fantasies and conjectures. This time it is parallel worlds, but elsewhere it may be extragalactic visitors, invested with an aura of unfathomable power, or the duplication not just of things and inanimate objects, but also of people, whole cities, countries, an even whole epochs, what is sometimes known as the split-image theme.

Philip K. Dick: Exhilaration and Terror of the Postmodern (Liverpool University Press - Liverpool Sc

Once solely the possession of fans and buffs, the SF author Philip K Dick is now finding a much wider audience, as the success of the films Blade Runner and Minority Report shows. The kind of world he predicted in his funny and frightening novels and stories is coming closer to most of us: shifting realities, unstable relations, uncertain moralities. Philip K. Dick: Exhilaration and Terror of the Postmodern examines a wide range of Dick’s work, including his short stories and posthumously published realist novels. Christopher Palmer analyzes the puzzling and dazzling effects of Dick’s fiction, and argues that at its heart is a clash between exhilarating possibilities of transformation, and a frightening lack of ethical certainties. Dick’s work is seen as the inscription of his own historical predicament, the clash between humanism and postmodernism being played out in the complex forms of the fiction. The problem is never resolved, but Dick’s ways of imagining it become steadily more ingenious and challenging.

Practicing Science Fiction: Critical Essays on Writing, Reading and Teaching the Genre

Drawn from the Science Fiction Research Association conference held in Lawrence, Kansas, in 2008, the essays in this volume address intersections among the reading, writing, and teaching of science fiction. Part 1 studies the teaching of SF, placing analytical and pedagogical research next to each other to reveal how SF can be both an object of study as well as a teaching tool for other disciplines. Part 2 examines SF as a genre of mediation between the sciences and the humanities, using close readings and analyses of the literary-scientific nexus. Part 3 examines SF in the media, using specific television programs, graphic novels, and films as examples of how SF successfully transcends the medium of transmission. Finally, Part 4 features close readings of SF texts by women, including Joanna Russ, Ursula K. Le Guin, and Octavia E. Butler.

العود الأبدي

لى كل المعذبين في الأرض، كل البائسين في الوجود، الذين تعذبهم المعرفة وتؤرق نومهم، إلى كل من بحث عن جدوى للوجود ولم يجد، كل من تعلق بوهم الإرادة وأستيقظ على حقيقة الجبر، إن كان هذا يواسيكم فسأقول لكم أن الأمر ليس بأيديكم، فقد وقع وانتهى، وليس بأيديكم منعه فلقد ولدتم وسبق السيف العزل، الحق أقول لكم، لا تملكون سوى الصراخ، فاصرخوا في وجوه الموهمين لعل فيهم من يسمع ويستفيق ويعم البؤس على الجميع لقد كتب علينا - نحن البشر - السكر بالوهم، فأسكروا واملئوا كؤوسكم من خمر الوهم المصنوع بعناية، أشربوا حتى تنتشي وتسكروا، أشربوا حتى تنسوا إن ما تتجرعود هو الوهم، حينها فقط ستستطيعون المضي قدما في هذه الحياة

رواية دم الغريب

تدور أحداث الرواية في مدينة جزائرية، بطلتها تدعى سليمة، تعيش حياة بسيطة وطبيعة الى غاية التقائها برجل غريب في عملها. يهيء لها أن الغموض الذي يلف به أمر طبيعي، وأن جلوسه امامها مجرد صدفة، الى أن تكتشف عكس ذلك. يعتبر التقاء البطلة بالغريب نقطة تحول في حياتها، إذ تنقلب كل الموازين وكل المسلمات التي اعتادت عليها رأسا على عقب، فتنكشف الحقائق المستورة، وتسقط الأقنعة عن الوجوه وتكشف انياب الخداع والطمع، ويتغير مفهوم العائلة المتماسكة حينها. المغامرة والمفاجآت جزء لا يتجزأ من الرواية، فهي تشد القارىء بطريقة بسيطة والأفكار واحداث متسارعة من اول حرف فيها إلى آخرها، لتفتح المجال أمام القارىء للتخيل.

Voyage de Passavant Le chevalier de Passavant s’était donc arrêté hors des murs de Paris, en proie à un découragement qui brisait en lui tout ressort vital. Avec sa manière d’envisager choses et gens d’une façon absolue, avec son peu de connaissance de la vraie vie qui fait les événements et les êtres en demi-teinte, il s’exagérait la catastrophe. Il n’y a qu’une chose au monde qui ne s’arrange pas : c’est la mort. Tout le reste se raccommode, se rapetasse, se replâtre, car la pensée humaine tient essentiellement à trouver un gîte, et il n’y a pas d’effort dont elle ne soit capable pour s’accommoder même d’un taudis. Quand tout craque dans notre âme, quand notre pensée se trouve expulsée des palais qu’elle....
