A un secolo dall'assassinio dell'arciduca d'Austria Francesco Ferdinando, le ripercussioni del devastante conflitto mondiale che ne seguí durano ancora oggi. In questo suggestivo saggio, lo storico Ian Beckett isola dodici eventi cruciali della prima guerra mondiale. Soffermandosi su episodi sia celebri sia pressoché dimenticati, l'autore racconta la storia della Grande Guerra da una prospettiva inedita, sottolineando di volta in volta il ruolo del caso come quello della strategia, episodi giganteschi come solo apparentemente poco rilevanti, la dimensione sociale come quella militare e l'evento di lungo periodo come quello che esaurisce rapidamente la sua portata storica…

Samuel Beckett's Critical Aesthetics

Samuel Beckett's Critical Aesthetics By Tim Lawrence
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 250 Pages | ISBN : 3319753983 | 2.98 MB

This book considers how Samuel Beckett’s critical essays, dialogues and reflections drew together longstanding philosophical discourses about the nature of representation, and fostered crucial, yet overlooked, connections between these discourses and his fiction and poetry. It also pays attention to Beckett’s writing for little-magazines in France from the 1930s to the 1950s, before going on to consider how the style of Beckett’s late prose recalls and develops figures and themes in his critical writing. By providing a long-overdue assessment of Beckett’s work as a critic, this study shows how Beckett developed a new aesthetic in knowing dialogue with ideas including phenomenology, Kandinsky’s theories of abstraction, and avant-garde movements such as Surrealism. This book will be illuminating for students and researchers interested not just in Beckett, but in literary modernism, the avant-garde, European visual culture and philosophy.

Beckett and Modernism

Beckett and Modernism by Olga Beloborodova
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 299 Pages | ISBN : 3319703730 | 3.57 MB

This book of collected essays approaches Beckett’s work through the context of modernism, while situating it in the literary tradition at large. It builds on current debates aiming to redefine ‘modernism’ in connection to concepts such as ‘late modernism’ or ‘postmodernism’. Instead of definitively re-categorizing Beckett under any of these labels, the essays use his diverse oeuvre – encompassing poetry, criticism, prose, theatre, radio and film – as a case study to investigate and reassess the concept of ‘modernism after postmodernism’ in all its complexity, covering a broad range of topics spanning Beckett’s entire career. In addition to more thematic essays about art, history, politics, psychology and philosophy, the collection places his work in relation to that of other modernists such as T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, Wyndham Lewis, Gertrude Stein and Virginia Woolf, as well as to the literary canon in general. It represents an important contribution to both Beckett studies and modernism studies.

The Home Front 1914-1918: How Britain Survived the Great War by Ian F. W. Beckett
English | December 31st, 2013 | ISBN: 1472908899 | 224 Pages | EPUB | 56.12 MB

The Great War had a profound impact on Britain. Not only did families risk their sons in active combat; every member of society was required to make a contribution to the war effort. National initiatives like rationing affected all, and civilians were now regarded as a legitimate military target. Reminders of this turbulent time survive today, in rituals such as Summer Time and Remembrance, nationwide war memorials, and the powerful myth of a lost generation slaughtered in a futile war.
