Twilight, Hunger Games, L'Alchimista, Il codice da Vinci:come si costruisce un successo editoriale di dimensioni planetarie? Non era mai accaduto che i romanzi – certi romanzi – avessero tanto successo e generassero volumi di vendite così possenti come negli ultimi vent'anni. La serie di Harry Potter, le trilogie di Twilight e Hunger Games, i romanzi di Coelho, le detective story diStieg Larsson e Dan Brown, da Il codice da Vinci a Inferno, i romanzi di Murakami o opere come Il cacciatore di aquiloni e Cinquanta sfumature di grigio, sono diventati successi mondiali da milioni di copie vendute. Quali sono i motivi di questo successo? Bisogni profondi a cui queste narrazioni si ispirano ma anche fattori produttivi impensabili solo pochi anni fa: dalla tendenza intermediale per cui un libro viene concepito da subito per essere adattato a film, videogame, graphic novel, allo sviluppo di comunità di lettori-fan che danno vita a un flusso continuo di prodotti paralleli all'opera originaria – prequel, sequel, spin off, fake, fanzine.

Di fronte all’ascesa del cognitivismo negli studi letterari, questo saggio assume un compito di mediazione e mira a presentare alcuni risultati delle neuroscienze contemporanee che incidono su questioni rilevanti per lo studio della letteratura. L’idea di «simulazione incarnata» e la teoria del linguaggio incarnato occupano il centro della scena e consentono di ripensare in modo nuovo le basi dell’interpretazione e del metodo nelle scienze umane. La concezione dell’arte come dominio nel quale rimettiamo in gioco la nostra esperienza per conoscere gli altri e rinnovare noi stessi sembra trovare un fondamento imprevisto. Fra cultura umanistica e scienze naturali si apre un terreno comune sul quale dialogare.

In academia, as well as in popular culture, the prefix "neuro-" now occurs with startling frequency. Scholars now publish research in the fields of neuroeconomics, neurophilosophy, neuromarketing, neuropolitics, and neuroeducation. Consumers are targeted with enhanced products and services, such as brain-based training exercises, and babies are kept on a strict regimen of brain music, brain videos, and brain games. The chapters in this book investigate the rhetorical appeal, effects, and implications of this prefix, neuro-, and carefully consider the potential collaborative work between rhetoricians and neuroscientists. Drawing on the increasingly interdisciplinary nature of rhetorical study, Neurorhetorics questions how discourses about the brain construct neurological differences, such as mental illness or intelligence measures. Working at the nexus of rhetoric and neuroscience, the authors explore how to operationalize rhetorical inquiry into neuroscience in meaningful ways. They account for the production, dissemination, and appeal of neuroscience research findings, revealing what rhetorics about the brain mean for contemporary public discourse. This book was originally published as a special issue of Rhetoric Society Quarterly.

More than half a century after its translation into English, Erich Auerbach's Mimesis remains a masterpiece of literary criticism. A brilliant display of erudition, wit, and wisdom, his exploration of how great European writers from Homer to Virginia Woolf depicted reality has taught generations how to read Western literature. This new expanded edition includes a substantial essay in introduction by Edward Said as well as an essay, never before translated into English, in which Auerbach responds to his critics. A German Jew, Auerbach was forced out of his professorship at the University of Marburg in 1935. He left for Turkey, where he taught at the state university in Istanbul. There he wrote Mimesis, publishing it in German after the end of the war. Displaced as he was, Auerbach produced a work of great erudition that contains no footnotes, basing his arguments instead on searching, illuminating readings of key passages from his primary texts. His aim was to show how from antiquity to the twentieth century literature progressed toward ever more naturalistic and democratic forms of representation. This essentially optimistic view of European history now appears as a defensive--and impassioned--response to the inhumanity he saw in the Third Reich. Ranging over works in Greek, Latin, Spanish, French, Italian, German, and English, Auerbach used his remarkable skills in philology and comparative literature to refute any narrow form of nationalism or chauvinism, in his own day and ours. For many readers, both inside and outside the academy, Mimesis is among the finest works of literary criticism ever written. This Princeton Classics edition includes a substantial introduction by Edward Said as well as an essay in which Auerbach responds to his critics.

Psychoanalysis and Narrative d is a clear and exemplary demonstration of the ways in which the vital connections between psychoanalysis and literature can be articulated without reductive simplification. Following Freud's assumption that sexuality and narrative form are analogous, Brooks proposes that literature constitutes a fundamental part of human existence. He supplements the terminology of narrative theory with the rich and suggestive language of psychoanalysis.

An extraordinarily beautiful Amish woman, a dangerous femme fatale, is the central figure in a story that reveals a dark side of Painters Mill and its seemingly perfect Amish world A rainy night, an Amish father returning home with his three children, a speeding car hurtling toward them out of nowhere. What at first seems like a tragic, but routine car accident suddenly takes on a more sinister cast as evidence emerges that nothing about the crash is accidental. But who would want to kill an Amish deacon and two of his children? He leaves behind a grieving widow and a young boy who clings to life in the intensive care wing of a hospital, unable to communicate. He may be the only one who knows what happened that night. Desperate to find out who killed her best friend's husband and why, Kate begins to suspect she is not looking for a reckless drunk, but instead is on the trail of a cold blooded killer amid the residents of Painter's Mill. It is a search that takes her on a chilling journey into the darkest reaches of the human heart and makes her question everything she has ever believed about the Amish culture into which she was born.
