Kano Market Literature has been in existence in Hausa society for over three decades (1984-2015). Attempts have been made by many scholars to examine the creation and growth of the formative stages of market oriented literature in other parts of the world; kitsch, as found in German Literature and Elizabethan Literature in England.

It was for this book that he first adopted the pseudonym George Orwell. After a short period he changed to study English Literature. He used the science fiction genre and the fantasy story to provide an effective narrative style for his analyses of human nature. He then published a further three novels. Golding graduated from Oxford in 1935 and started a career in teaching. At the outbreak of the Second World War, Golding joined the Royal Navy and was involved in active service throughout the war. The effects of the war on Golding were enormous and helped to create his pessimistic view of human nature. Iris Murdoch was born in Dublin.

Post-war German literature, Gender and Memory Studies. The tournament had by now been in progress for two hours. We'd been hammered and were now awaiting the return match. It was a young cat, although not a kitten. It aims to foster a broad interrogative dialogue between philosophy, psychoanalysis, and literary criticism and develop new approaches to the study of trauma in literature and the trauma of literature.

The two most innovatory novelists to begin their careers soon after World War II were also religious believers-William Golding and Muriel Spark. In novels of poetic compactness, they frequently return to the notion of original sin-the idea that, in Golding’s words, man produces evil as a bee produces honey. The parody and pastiche that Wilson brilliantly deploys in No Laughing Matter and the book’s fascination with the sources and resources of creativity constitute a rich, imaginative response to what had become a mood of growing self-consciousness in fiction.

Literature and Spirit, therefore, is not a typically cool and detached exercise in academic curiosity. The author demonstrates that in deciding something about literature, we decide something about the substance and meaning of our lives. The reader who comes before a literary text encounters the human voice.

Apart from its influence in literature and art, Romanticism began to affect, and be affected by, the political and economic perceptions of 19th century Europe. Moreover, there was a renewed interest in the Middle Ages, and in discovering past cultures and epochs. Artists and men of letters approached their themes and questions not on the basis of emotions. They stood for their objective or accurate portrayal. Therefore, this style in art and literature has been called Realism. The German Idealists argued that Idea could transform socio-economic and political life. This was different from the earlier stress on spiritualism and denial of the importance of socio-economic and political life.

As well as exploring literature as such, this study introduces material from travelogues, oriental studies, ethnography, memoirs, and the utterances of tsarist officials and military commanders. While showing how literature often underwrote imperialism, the book carefully explores the tensions between the Russian state's ideology of a European mission to civilise the Muslim mountaineers, and romantic perceptions of those tribes as noble primitives whose extermination was no cause for celebration.

Heinrich Schirmbeck (b. 1915), Germany's most prolific post-war writer on the subject of science and literature, sensed the diminishing relevance of literature in the scientific era. He developed a new poetics for the scientific age and anticipated the major ideas of the Two Cultures debate of C. P. Snow and F. R. Leavis. In his fiction, Schirmbeck explored both the promise and the dangers of science. In this, he predated more well-known German authors such as Dürrenmatt and Kipphardt. Schirmbeck, who wrestled with everything from nuclear weapons to cybernetics to genetic engineering, was simultaneously fascinated and frightened by the potential of science. It is a testament to the complexity of his work that he has been accused of utter pessimism, as well as naive hope.
