Canons by Robert Von Hallberg

Book Description

Canon formation: ." . . the traditional dream of ambitious critics. A canon is commonly seen as what other people, once powerful, have made and what should now be opened up, demystified, or eliminated altogether." So writes editor Robert von Hallberg in his introduction. This collection of essays articulates how canons are constructed and examines the ways in which academic canons influence literary thought and instruction. Presenting a wide range of canonical interpretation, thevolume includes essays on such themes as Native American literature and the canon, the ideology of canon formation, the history of American poetry anthologies, undoing the canonical economy, the making of the modernist canon, and canon and power in the Hebrew scriptures."

Books By Author Robert Von Hallberg

Lyric Powers by Robert Von Hallberg Lyric Powers, Hardback (October 2008)

The authority of poetry varies from one period to another, from one culture to another. To explain why a reader might prefer one kind of poem to another, this book analyzes - beyond the political and intellectual significance of poems - the musicality of both lyric poetry and popular song, including that of Tin Pan Alley and doo-wop.

Literary Intellectuals and the Dissolution of the State by Robert Von Hallberg Literary Intellectuals and the Dissolution of the State, Paperback (March 1996)

This collection of interviews with more than two dozen writers and literary scholars, including several Stasi informants, provides a survey of the motivations, compromises and illusions of East German intellectual life.

American Poetry and Culture, 1945-80 by Robert Von Hallberg American Poetry and Culture, 1945-80, Paperback (July 1988)

Challenging the common perception of poets as standing apart from the mainstream of American culture, Robert von Hallberg gives us a fresh and unpredictable assessment of the poetry that has come directly out of the American experience since 1945.
