Language, Politics and Writing: Stolentelling in Western Europe (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


The aim of Patrick McCarthy's new book, Language, Politics and Writing, is to demonstrate the links and parallels between literature and politics in Western Europe. McCarthy looks at the history of the twentieth century by wedding together literary and political events and texts, and examines the ways in which they interact and influence each other. Refreshingly free of jargon, this book interweaves literary, aesthetic, mass media (especially film), political and historical themes. In Language, Politics and Writing, Patrick McCarthy provides readers with an intellectual commentary on the persistent cultural traditions in European nations, highlighting the fact that these traditions have been enriched by the 'dialogue' of regional integration. Patrick McCarthy, an expert on the culture of Western Europe, highlights particular points in the political history of Western Europe and analyzes a writer or work from the same period to illustrate compelling connections between literature and politics

PATRICK MCCARTHY is Research Professor at Johns Hopkins University, Bologna Center. He has taught literature and politics at Cambridge, Cornell, and Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies. Until June 2001, he was Professor of European Studies at JHU, Bologna. He is the author of several books including The Crisis of the Italian State and France-Germany in the Twenty-First Century.
