Adorno and Literature by David Cunningham

Book Description

This is the first book to provide a comprehensive account of Adorno's aesthetic theory in relation to literature, now available in paperback. Despite the recent upsurge of interest in Theodor Adorno's work, his literary writings are generally under-represented. However, literature is a central element in his aesthetic theory. Bringing together original essays from a distinguished international group of contributors, this book offers a wide ranging account of the literary components of Adorno's thinking.It is divided into three sections, dealing with the concept of literature, with poetry, and with modernity and the novel respectively. At the same time, the book provides a clear sense of the unique qualities of Adorno's philosophy of literature by critically relating his work to a number of other influential theorists and theories including contemporary postmodernist theory and cultural studies.

Heliopolis, a prosperous citadel divided into five layers, its rigid social structure ensuring that it is run efficiently and the citizens know their place. But there is one uncertainty that all Heliopolitans share. What lies beneath the impenetrable sea of cloud? An abyss of nothingness? 14-year-old Marcus is about to find out...

There's Something Happening Here by David Cunningham There's Something Happening Here, Paperback (August 2005)

Examining the FBI's infamous counterintelligence programs (COINTELPROs) against suspected communists, civil rights and black power advocates, and antiwar activists, the author questions whether such actions were aberrations or are evidence of the bureau's ongoing mission to restrict citizens' right to engage in legal forms of political dissent.
