To many, chance and art are antagonistic terms. But a number of 20th century artists have turned this notion on its head by attempting to create artworks based on randomness. Among those, three in particular articulated a well-argued and thorough theory of the radical use of chance in art: André Breton (writer), John Cage (composer) and François Morellet (visual artist). The implications of such a move away from established aesthetics are far-reaching, as much in conceptual as in practical terms, as this book hopes to make clear. Of paramount importance in this coincidentia oppositorum is the suggested possibility of a correlation between the artistic use of chance and a system of thought itself organised around chance. Indeed placing randomness at the centre of one’s art may have deeper philosophical consequences than just on the aesthetical level.

This is the first in-depth study of the twelve Modiano texts specifically concerned with life-writing in autobiographical and biographical-cum-historiographical projects. The texts covered range from La Place de l’étoile (1968) through to La Petite Bijou (2001). Close textual analysis is combined with a theoretical approach based on current thinking in autobiography, biography, and reader-response. Modiano’s use of autofiction and biofiction is analysed in the light of his continuing obsession with both personal trauma and History, as well as his problematic relationship with his paternally-inherited Jewish links. His view of identity (of self and other) is thus discussed in relation to a particular literary and socio-historical context– French, postmodern, post-World War II, and post-Holocaust.

The novels of Paul Auster—finely wrought, self-reflexive, filled with doublings, coincidences, and mysteries—have captured the imagination of readers and the admiration of many critics of contemporary literature. In Beyond the Red Notebook, the first book devoted to the works of Auster, Dennis Barone has assembled an international group of scholars who present twelve essays that provide a rich and insightful examination of Auster's writings. The authors explore connections between Auster's poetry and fiction, the philosophical underpinnings of his writing, its relation to detective fiction, and its unique embodiment of the postmodern sublime. Their essays provide the fullest analysis available of Auster's themes of solitude, chance, and paternity found in works such as The Invention of Solitude, City of Glass, Ghosts, The Locked Room, In the Country of Last Things, Moon Palace, The Music of Chance, and Leviathan. This volume includes contributions from Pascal Bruckner, Marc Chenetier, Norman Finkelstein, Derek Rubin, Madeleine Sorapure, Stephen Bernstein, Tim Woods, Steven Weisenburger, Arthur Saltzman, Eric Wirth, and Motoyuki Shibata. The extensive bibliography, prepared by William Drenttel, will greatly benefit both scholars and general readers.

Dissertation im Fachbereich Nordamerikanische Literatur und Kultur der Universität des Saarlandes. The Implosion of Negativity ist die erste Monografie zu Paul Austers Frühwerk. Bis 1980 betätigte sich Auster zehn Jahre lang fast ausschließlich als Lyriker, um danach nie wieder ein Gedicht zu veröffentlichen. The Implosion of Negativity versucht zu ergründen, wie es zu diesem Bruch kam, und analysiert detailliert Austers poetisches Vorleben. Dabei werden bislang unbeachtete Einflüsse wie Martin Buber und Paul Celan zutage gefördert. Die abschließende Untersuchung von The New York Trilogy zeigt exemplarisch, welche neuen interpretatorischen Ansätze die Kenntnis von Austers vergessenem Frühwerk ermöglicht: Der untote Lyriker wird zum Phantom, das unablässig Austers Romane heimsucht – und antreibt. Die Dissertation The Implosion of Negativity ist in englischer Sprache verfasst. Der Anhang enthält eine deutsche Zusammenfassung, eine umfassende Bibliographie und ein persönliches Interview mit Paul Auster. Englischer Klappentext: For most readers and critics Paul Auster’s oeuvre begins with The New York Trilogy, yet his major success as a novelist was preceded by a decade of almost obsessive devotion to poetry. The Implosion of Negativity is the first book-length study of Paul Auster’s early work. From his dense, intensely lyric sequences of the early 1970s to the more discursive style of Auster’s final book of poems, Facing the Music (1980), and on to his experimental prose of the early eighties, The Implosion of Negativity traces a fascinating journey through the author’s formative years. Andreas Hau’s dissertation begins with a detailed analysis of Auster’s early long poem “Unearth”, examines overlooked influences such as Paul Celan and Martin Buber, and continues with Auster’s exploration of his Jewish heritage in Wall Writing, his rediscovery of the American objectivists in “Disappearances”, and his encounters with the visual arts in Fragments from Cold. Subsequent chapters investigate Auster’s eventual break with the lyric form and the transitional phase of “genreless” prose in White Spaces and The Invention of Solitude. The Implosion of Negativity closes with a re-examination of The New York Trilogy in the light of Auster’s obscure early oeuvre and exemplifies how the undead poet has become the negative force that haunts – and fuels – Paul Auster’s novels to date. “I remain very attached to the poetry I wrote,” says Auster, “I still stand by it. In the final analysis, it could even be the best work I’ve ever done.” The Implosion of Negativity sheds new light on the genesis of one of America’s foremost writers. The appendix contains a comprehensive bibliography and a personal interview with Paul Auster.
