Literature and Ethics covers a wide gamut of literary periods and genres, including essays on Victorian literature and modernism, as well as several studies on narrative, but the central ethos emerges from considerations of issues of responsibility and irresponsibility as they find expression in literary study, and in ethics. Students and academics who are interested in literary theory, ethics, narrative form, and issues of authorial responsibility, and how such matters inform the reading of literary texts, will find that this collection offers a wide array of approaches and viewpoints by major figures from the relevant sub-disciplines in literary studies. The collection offers much-timely critical observation on a variety of contemporary authors but also provides critically adventurous commentaries on Victorian literature, and on Indian, African, Irish, and Australian literature. The volume assembles a collection of essays that would illustrate the great diversity of methods by which considerations of responsibility can and do offer insight into a range of literary texts, and theoretical discourses, while also making a contribution to the philosophical question of responsibility (and irresponsibility) in the contemporary world. The collection as a whole testifies to the human fascination with issues of responsibility, just as it testifies to the necessity of posing questions of responsibility as questions of ethics and literature, the necessity of recognizing, in other words, that "responsibility" names a concept whose only ground is the history of those fictional narratives of responsibility and irresponsibility that modern civilization would do well to continue inventing and reflecting upon critically. So whether ethical discourses find expression in theoretical debate--or in and through the sophisticated fictions that constitute an imaginative culture--what is clear, both from wider discussions related to the value of literary texts that are such a central part of contemporary literary studies, and from the varied and nuanced arguments that are made in this collection, is that questions of responsibility are central to literature, philosophy, and the arts, just as they are to the social realities that spawned them in the first place. Literature and Ethics is an important book for all literature and literary theory collections. It has specific resonance for students and teachers who are interested in the value of literary study, and in questions of ethics and narrative.

Eine Frau gegen den Schwarzen Tod. Als in einem kleinen Dorf im Norden Englands die Pest ausbricht, übernehmen Angst, Hysterie und Hexenwahn die Herrschaft. Der Schwarze Tod wütet unerbittlich. Die Dorfbewohner haben dem Pfarrer gelobt, den Ort nicht zu verlassen, ehe nicht die Seuche besiegt ist. Mehr als einmal sind sie kurz davor, einander gegenseitig zu meucheln. Die junge Witwe Anna Frith beweist in dieser schlimmen Zeit Mut, sie schenkt Leben und findet Liebe und privates Glück. Eines Tages hat das Grauen ein Ende. Aber Anna Frith steht die schwerste Prüfung noch bevor ... Geraldine Brooks, mehrfach ausgezeichnete amerikanische Journalistin und Sachbuchautorin, wurde zu ihrem ersten Roman durch das Hinweisschild auf ein englisches „Pestdorf“ angeregt. Dort hatten sich Menschen bei Ausbruch der Pest im 17. Jahrhundert selbst in Quarantäne begeben, um das Ausbreiten der Seuche zu verhindern. An ihren Mut und ihre Verzweiflung erinnert bis heute im Peak District ein kleines Museum.

Janet Frames autobiographischer Roman erzählt die Lebensgeschichte einer der eigenwilligsten Autorinnen der Weltliteratur. Die junge Janet Frame wächst unter ärmlichen und tragischen Umständen an der Küste Neuseelands auf: ihr Bruder erkrankt an Epilepsie, und ihre beiden Schwestern ertrinken bei Badeausflügen. Nach einem Selbstmordversuch in die Psychiatrie eingeliefert, rettet die junge Autorin nur wenige Tage vor einer geplanten Hirnoperation ein Literaturpreis, und sie wird nach acht Jahren entlassen. «Ein Engel an meiner Tafel» liefert den Beweis für die lebensspendende Kraft der Literatur, erzählt von einer Autorin, die ihr Leben dem Schreiben widmete und bis zum Ende aus dieser Kraft schöpfte. Frames Autobiographie gehört zu den bedeutendsten Beispielen für dieses Genre im 20. Jahrhundert.

Beginning with approaches familiar to students and then gradually introducing schools of criticism that are more challenging, THEORY INTO PRACTICE provides extensive step-by-step guidance for writing literary analyses from each of the critical perspectives. This brief, practical introduction to literary theory explores core literary theories in a unique chronological format and includes an anthology of relevant fiction, poetry, and nonfiction to help bring those theories to life for students. Remarkably readable and engaging, the text makes even complex concepts manageable for those beginning to think about literary theory, and example analyses for each type of criticism show how real students have applied the theories to works included in the anthology. Now updated with the latest scholarship, including a full discussion of Ecocriticism and increased emphasis on American multicultural approaches, THEORY INTO PRACTICE provides an essential foundation for thoughtful and effective literary analysis.
