  • Galdosby Jo LABANYI

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 62.99

    Franz Steiner Verlag 2013; US$ 46.29

Nicht zuletzt eine neue, im Entstehen begriffene Epistemologie, die sich aus heutiger Sicht als eine konstruktivistische erweist. Mit dem Konstruktivismus teilt Robbe-Grillet eine dezidiert antirealistische Weltsicht, die davon ausgeht, dass die Wirklichkeit... more...

  • Narrative Mutationsby Rudyard Alcocer

    Taylor and Francis 2011; US$ 44.95

    Given the welcomed shift throughout the academy away from essentialist and biologically fixed understandings of "race" and the body, it is a curiosity worth exploring that so many sophisticated-and even radical-narratives retain physical and behavioral heredity as a guiding trope. The persistence of this concept in Caribbean literature informs not... more...
