 ENG L354 1867 American Literature since 1914   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
We will focus our attention on the ways in which writers such as Steinbeck, Morrison and Kingston have imagined the worlds which Americans inhabit and the ways in which race, national origin, gender, and class inflect character and narrative.
This course is organized around the notion that American literature may best be understood as a conversation rather than a singular tradition.
That is, American literature is defined here as a discursive practice based on an actual plurality rather than an imagined unity.

 §1. Arnold’s early poems. IV. Matthew Arnold, Arthur Hugh Clough, James Thomson. Vol. 13. The Victorian Age, ...
They are the delightful critical discourses On Translating Homer (1861) and The Study of Celtic Literature (1867), in which we find the essence of his prelections from the chair of poetry at Oxford, a post to which he was elected in 1857 and which he held for ten years.
After 1867, Arnold wrote little poetry, and entered upon a career as publicist on social, religious and political subjects which led him somewhat far afield from the high road of literature.
He soon became a controversialist whom the newspapers and magazines of the hour found it profitable to notice and to attack; his fame spread across the Atlantic, and in 1883, led to the inevitable Amercian lecturing tour which has been the not always happy lot of many popular English authors.

 African American Review: The Word in Black and White: Reading 'Race' in American Literature, 1638-1867. - book reviews
She approaches these texts from a (somewhat undeveloped) sociological perspective, seeing literature as "symbolic action with reference to a real world," which "should not be abstracted from its material and cultural contexts" (ix).
She makes great claims for the social role of literature, which, she believes, "plays a formative role in shaping material and social reality" (131).
The concept of "literature," especially considered as colonialist cultural work, deserves further interrogation, and attention could have been paid to particular social contexts (e.g., reader responses).

That purpose was to “cure the great vice of our intellect, manifesting itself in our incredible vagaries in literature, in art, in religion, in morals; namely, that it is fantastic, and wants sanity.” 13
The main body of his purely literary criticism, with the exception of a few scattered essays, is to be found in the lectures On Translating Homer (1861), and The Study of Celtic Literature (1867), and in the two volumes entitled Essays in Criticism (1865, 1889).
When we turn from these eccentric preferences to the main principles of his literary criticism, we find, in his definitions of them, at any rate, much that is incontrovertible and a little that is open to question.

 Japan, France, and East-West Aesthetics: French Literature, 1867-2000
Jan Walsh Hokenson is Professor of French and Comparative Literature at Florida Atlantic University, where she founded the graduate Program in Comparative Literature and is currently Head of French Studies.
To read French literature of 1867-2000 in this way unsettles some basic assumptions about many of the canonical French writers who are commonly considered the founders of Modernism and postmodernism.
Japan, France, examines this phenomenon through close readings in literature, theater, and philosophy, situated in the changing contexts of French culture, in texts by such writers as Zola, Mallarmé, and Proust through Malraux and Yourcenar to Barthes, Kristeva, Lyotard, and Bonnefoy.

That the demand for the whole series will be great we believe, and we are sure that if it were not, the fact would be a disgrace to us as a nation.
The editors are more than competent----they are men of known learning and ability, and have already proved their profound interest in this branch of literature.
Translators of these writings seem to have felt that they were so much raw material which could be wrought up for party purposes ; or they have tacked on to them the most impudent frauds as genuine.

In addition to the Essays in Criticism, the other works of Arnold that possess his fine critical dualities in highest degree are On Translating Homer (1861) and The Study of Celtic Literature (1867).
General Characteristics.—­The impression that Arnold has left upon literature is mainly that of a keen, brilliant intellect.
His introspective, analytical poetry is distinguished by a “majesty of grief,” depth of thought, calm, classic repose, and a dignified simplicity.
