Before his death in 1988 at age 38, Allon White had become known as one of the most important literary and cultural critics of his generation. This collection represents a summation of the work which, as Stuart Hall explains in the Introduction, transformed cultural studies in the 1980s. White's central concerns--with writing, carnival, the body, hysteria, and memory--recur with differing inflections in the pieces here. They range from a discussion of Julia Kristeva's work to language and location in Bleak House, from a Thomas Pynchon short story to the "seriousness" of academic language. Other pieces deal with Gilles Deleuze, Francis Bacon, and Mikhail Bakhtin, one of White's major influences. This collection also includes White's poignant autobiographical fragment, "Too Close to the Bone." A fitting memorial to a major figure, this book will be essential reading for everyone working within literary and cultural studies.

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 1993. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Before his death from leukemia at the age of 36, Allon White had become known as one of the most important literary and cultural critics of his generation. Carnival, Hysteria, and Writing represents a summation of the work which, as Stuart Hall explains in an extended introduction, transformed cultural studies in the 1980s. Allon White s central concerns - with writing, carnival, the body, hysteria, and memory - recur with differing inflections in the pieces collected here. Wide-ranging in scope, the essays move with fluency from an analysis of the work of Julia Kristeva to a discussion of language and location in Dicken s Bleak House, and from a Thomas Pynchon short story to the seriousness of academic language. Other pieces deal with Gilles Deleuze and Francis Bacon, and with Mikhail Bakhtin, a major influence on Allon White s thinking. Included too is the poignant autobiographical fragment, Too Close to the Bone . An Afterword by Jacqueline Rose deals with the links between theory and autobiography and between the academic and personal writings in the book. A memorial to Allon White s life and work, Carnival, Hysteria, and Writing will be essential reading for all working within literary and cultural studies. Seller Inventory # AAV9780198122876
