Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,7, LMU Munich (Department fur Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Hauptseminar Scottish Literature, History and Culture, language: English, abstract: Discussing How Late It Was, How Late, the present paper pays special attention to the modes of resistance as presented in Kelman's text. In this respect, the purpose of my introduction is to explain the terms power and resistance and relate them to the novel. To begin with, for the purposes of this paper I refer to Foucault's definition of power as "a set of actions upon other actions." (1982, 789) So, I do not use power in the sense of violence, but in the sense of actions, which induce, ease, restrict or forbid the actions of others. (See Foucault 1982, 789-790) Therefore, power comes to designate a relation and not an attribute. It can be only exerted, but never possessed. Furthermore, power relations are rooted in all social networks. The relations between the main protagonist, Sammy, and the representatives of the social institutions such as policemen illustrate my claim. First of all, in the face of the unemployed, thirty-eight years old Sammy, an eager drinker and smoker with a criminal past, Kelman's text concentrates on a certain group, which epitomizes deviations from the socially accepted norm. In this regard, there is a system of differentiation, determined by law and status, which privileges the institutional representatives over the main character and thus permits them to act upon Sammy's actions. Therefore, the power relations between Sammy and the representatives of the institutions are brought into being by their control over Sammy's actions. Moreover, since power relations lie at the core of society, one cannot escape from them. However, Foucault asserts that: "To say that there cannot be a society without power relations [...] is not to say that [...] power constitutes a fatality at the hear"

Brock Brower's National Book Award-nominated novel traces the making of a horror movie in Hollywood. Simon Moro, a 68-year-old star, is making his last picture, a low-budget remake of Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven. Moro, infuriated by the bland horror movies of his day, sees his own career--even as it ends-- as an ongoing effort to wallop the public with an overwhelming moral shock. And he succeeds when an elaborate publicity stunt turns into a gruesome and grand personal statement. As Moro's life reels toward its macabre end, it also reels backward through lies and evasions to show its surprising beginning. Underneath his Frankensteinian exaggeration, Moro has a vivid and humane story to tell, even as the coffins break open and dark, erotic secrets are revealed. Brock Brower has taken the horror film in all its gory glory to create a book that recycles pop material into literature, creating a Dickensian tale of America.

These are the kinds of questions Horatio Cotton, aka Bobby Cotton, asks as he sets off on an uproarious adventure to find his purpose in life. After serendipitously stealing a mysterious self-help book called Magnificent Vibration: Discover Your True Purpose from a bookstore, Bobby calls the 1-800 number scrawled inside the front cover, only to discover that he has a direct line to God—and that God likes to mess with him. Soon enough, Bobby finds an ideal companion for his journey—the breathtakingly sexy and exceedingly sharp Alice—and they set out to find some combination of spiritual and carnal salvation...and possibly save the planet.
