Book excerpt: This is the first volume in English to examine in detail one of the most remarkable collaborations between a writer and filmmaker in European cinema. Focusing on the four films Wim Wenders and Peter Handke made between 1969 and 1987 (3 American LPs, The GoalkeeperOCOs Fear of the Penalty, Wrong Move, and Wings of Desire), it explores the productive tension between adaptation and collaboration and demonstrates the different ways in which text- and image-makers can recompose filmOCOs constituent media (literature, still and moving images, music, drama). The study reveals that this partnership had significant aesthetic and conceptual repercussions for both artists, resulting in a series of single-authored works which manifest the same kinds of intertextuality and disjunctive intermediality that are the hallmark of the collaborations themselves. These include WendersOCOs Alice in the Cities, HandkeOCOs films The Chronicle of On-Going Events and The Left-Handed Woman, and his novels Short Letter, Long Farewell and A Moment of True Feeling. While the Wenders-Handke partnership is unique, it contributes to a broader understanding of cinematic adaptation and different models of intermedial collaboration. This volume will be of interest to those working in the fields of Adaptation, Film, and German Studies."

Download or read book Peter Handke written by Garvin H. C. Perram and published by Peter Lang Pub Incorporated. This book was released on 1992 with total page 273 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The genesis of Peter Handke's controversial -poetics- is investigated through an examination of key "Elfenbeinturm" essays and ORF -Bucherecke- manuscripts in which Handke's early literary preoccupations were most evident. From this a coherent and comprehensive view of the theoretical foundations of his literary concerns and practice emerges. This is followed by a detailed analysis of characteristic elements present in Handke's early narrative prose texts: "Die Hornissen, Der Hausierer, Die Angst des Tormanns beim Elfmeter, Wunschloses Ungluck" and the collection of short stories "Begrussung des Aufsichtsrats." This investigation of the early texts reveals a common triadic relationship between the highly intrusive foregrounding of the narrative constituent of these texts, the manner in which the literary reality is realized, and their central thematic concern. Handke's rather enigmatic and somewhat neglected early prose works are made very much more accessible through the insights afforded by this book."

This book was released on 1993 with total page 170 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Peter Handke is probably the most versatile and controversial of the postwar generation of German-speaking writers. His status as Austria's most renowned living author - a dubious honor, in his opinion - owes as much to his artistic range (plays, novels, a memoir, film scripts, radio plays, poems, and essays) as it does to his reputation for flouting literary and theatrical convention. Handke was only 24 when, in 1966, he challenged the strategic direction of the Gruppe 47 - by then an "establishment" coalition, of German-speaking writers and artists - and later that year assaulted what he considered the "lies" of the theater in Publikumsbeschimpfung (Offending the Audience), rejecting the 1960s' theatrical norms of illusion, subjectivity, and political indoctrination. In his works of the intervening 27 years Handke has sought to show how visual perception, verbal expression, and memory can distort reality. In this comprehensive assessment of Handke's writing, Richard Arthur Firda attributes the author's international readership (many of Handke's books were translated into English before he turned 40) to his career-long flair for publicity, a talent for sensing the future direction of not only the marketplace but also the avant-garde. Firda maintains that such works as Handke's phenomenally successful Die Angst des Tormanns beim Elfmeter (1972; The Goalie's Anxiety at the Penalty Kick) have linked him intimately with the European postmodern aesthetic, with the cutting edge of literary experimentation. Although the failure of language as valid communication is a theme common to all Handke's work, Firda argues that Handke in fact uses language as a precision tool - so much so that language would seem the only discernible "hero" of his explorations. In Kaspar (1968), for instance - perhaps Handke's best-known play - a mute is successfully subjected to "speech torture", but his mastery of words does not guarantee lasting control over the objects words signify, and in the end the conventions of language succumb to chaos. Firda sees Handke's 1966 refutation of the Gruppe 47 as a watershed event in the shaping of postwar European literature. Whereas the Gruppe 47 sought to renew German language and literature on moral and ethical issues and staunchly defended German literature as a means for social regeneration, Handke found inspiration in the likes of French prose theoretician Alain Robbe-Grillet and theater of the absurd dramatists Eugene Ionesco and Samuel Beckett. According to Firda, Handke admits feeling the need to find "another country," another Austria, and he expects to find this country in "language," as revealed in the process of writing. Having lived abroad in Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Berlin, and Paris for many years, Handke seems more a writer of modern Europe than of his native Austria. This introduction to the writings of such a complex writer should prove essential reading to students interested in the literature of the new Europe.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume examines innovative intersections of life-writing and experimental fiction in the 20th and 21st centuries, bringing together scholars and practicing biographers from several disciplines (Modern Languages, English and Comparative Literature, Creative Writing). It covers a broad range of biographical, autobiographical, and hybrid practices in a variety of national literatures, among them many recent works: texts that test the ground between fact and fiction, that are marked by impressionist, self-reflexive and intermedial methods, by their recourse to myth, folklore, poetry, or drama as they tell a historical character’s story. Between them, the essays shed light on the broad range of auto/biographical experimentation in modern Europe and will appeal to readers with an interest in the history and politics of form in life-writing: in the ways in which departures from traditional generic paradigms are intricately linked with specific views of subjectivity, with questions of personal, communal, and national identity.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this impressively wide-ranging study of all drama written in German in the period 1945-1977, Christopher Innes' aims are to identify the concerns and perceptions of dramatists working in a specific and unique social context and period and to analyse the major theatrical forms they developed or adapted to express their experience, to trace the writers' literary antecedents, their 'tradition' and to explore the critical issues raised by each stylistic innovation. Professor Innes has organized his discussion around the main forms of theatre - epic, documentary, absurdist and more traditional forms. Redefining these conceptual labels as he progresses, he analyses, in a critical and informed way, the work on the page and the stage of all the major playwrights. This study, which is complemented by photographs of key productions and accompanied by translations for all quotations, will be of particular interest to teachers and students of drama and German, as well as to a wider theatre-going public.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Punctuations Michael J. Shapiro examines how punctuation—conceived not as a series of marks but as a metaphor for the ways in which artists engage with intelligibility—opens pathways for thinking through the possibilities for oppositional politics. Drawing on Theodor Adorno, Alain Robbe-Grillet, and Roland Barthes, Shapiro demonstrates how punctuation's capacity to create unexpected rhythmic pacing makes it an ideal tool for writers, musicians, filmmakers, and artists to challenge structures of power. In works ranging from film scores and jazz compositions to literature, architecture, and photography, Shapiro shows how the use of punctuation reveals the contestability of dominant narratives in ways that prompt readers, viewers, and listeners to reflect on their acceptance of those narratives. Such uses of punctuation, he theorizes, offer models for disrupting structures of authority, thereby fostering the creation of alternative communities of sense from which to base political mobilization.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What does the Western city at the end of the twentieth century look like? How did the modern metropolis of congestion and density turn into a posturban or even postsuburban cityscape? What are edge cities and technoburbs? How has the social composition of cities changed in the postwar era? What do gated communities tell us about social fragmentation? Is public space in the contemporary city being privatized and militarized? How can the urban self still be defined? What role does consumer aestheticism have to play in this? These and many more questions are addressed by this uniquely conceived multidisciplinary study. The Urban Condition seeks to interfere in current debates over the future and interpretation of our urban landscapes by reuniting studies of the city as a physical and material phenomenon and as a cultural and mental (arte)fact. The Ghent Urban Studies Team responsible for the writing and editing of this volume is directed by Kristiaan Versluys and Dirk De Meyer at the University of Ghent, Belgium. It is an interdisciplinary research team of young academics that further consists of Kristiaan Borret, Bart Eeckhout, Steven Jacobs, and Bart Keunen. The collective expertise of GUST ranges from architectural theory, urban planning, and art history to philosophy, literary criticism and cultural theory.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Wim Wenders: Making Films That Matter is the first book in 15 years to take a comprehensive look at Wim Wenders's extensive filmography. In addition to offering new insights into his cult masterpieces, the 10 essays in this volume highlight the thematic and aesthetic continuities between his early films and his latest productions. Wenders's films have much to contribute to current conversations on intermediality, whether it be through his adaptations of important literary works or his filmic reinventions of famous paintings by Edward Hopper or Andrew Wyeth. Wenders has also positioned himself as a decidedly transnational and translingual filmmaker taking on the challenge of representing peripheral spaces without falling into the trap of a neo-colonial gaze. Making Films That Matter argues that Wenders remains a true innovator in both his experiments in 3D filmmaking and his attempts to define a visual poetics of peace.
