Genres in Discourse by Tzvetan Todorov

Book Description

This is a collection in translation of recent essays by Tzvetan Todorov, one of the most eminent of today's literary critics. The essays concentrate on the idea of genre, literary or otherwise, and ask such questions as: What is literature? What is genre? Which are the major literary genres? In the first section, Todorov proposes definitions for the notions of literature, discourse, and genre. Following is a general discussion of the two principal literary genres, fiction and poetry. In the final section, Todorov examines individual authors as case studies: among them Poe, Dostoyevsky, Baudelaire, Conrad, and James.

Inner Enemies of Democracy by Tzvetan Todorov Inner Enemies of Democracy, Hardback (September 2014)

The political history of the twentieth century can be viewed as the history of democracy s struggle against its external enemies: fascism and communism. This struggle ended with the fall of the Berlin Wall and the collapse of the Soviet regime.

Totalitarian Experience by Tzvetan Todorov Totalitarian Experience, Hardback (October 2011)

Recounts the author's own experiences with totalitarianism in his native Bulgaria, offering a historical look at communism. This title reveals the essence of totalitarian ideology, the characteristics of daily life under communism, and the irony of democratic messianism.

Limits of Art by Tzvetan Todorov Limits of Art, Hardback (December 2010)

Explores the complex relations between art, politics, and ethics. This book traces the intimate relationship between avant-garde art and radical politics in pre-revolutionary Russia, pre-fascist Italy, and pre-Nazi Germany. It re-examines the age-old question of what can be expected from art and whether it should be emancipated from ethics.
