Abstract [en]

This article suggests that the ideologically aware mode of criticism that characterizes recent Hawthorne criticism is not the radical break with an earlier mode of criticism that it might appear to be, but rather a continuation of it. While laudable, the crucial aim of recent critics, to elucidate the relationship between literary text and social context, is in practice often compromised by the notion that literary works are more valuable if they can be shown somehow to predate or prefigure our own historical situation. This notion, however, is itself an article of faith, and needs to be critically examined if ideological analysis is to retain its productivity. To that end, the present article suggests that literary criticism would do well to focus not so much on the literary text as on the literary situation, which involves not only the writer and the original audience of the text, but its subsequent readings as well.

Abstract [en]

This essay argues that Andrea Dworkin’s much derided argument against pornography may still prove productive if read in relation to her fiction. Taking note of the fact that Dworkin’s own novels have been accused of being pornographic according to her criteria, the essay explores the possibility that her radical feminist anti-porn stance, inevitably described as something of a moralistic backlash by sex-liberals, could be seen as a continuation of the pornographic imagination it so vehemently protests. Through critical readings of Dworkin’s novels Ice and Fire and Mercy, as well as her autobiographical works and theoretical writings on pornography, the essay demonstrates that the contradic- tions that beset her writings echo the contradictions inherent in our contemporary under- standing of pornography. Much like the pornography she would resist, Dworkin’s writings invite a solipsistic mode of reading, the experiential rewards of which are not so much of an interpretive as of a sensual nature. In so doing, Dworkin’s fiction paradoxically proves an invaluable point of entry into the pornographic imagination, making evident its essentially monologic nature. While this circumstance may be damaging for her status as an agitator, it points to her continued—if as yet largely unacknowledged—importance as a writer.

Abstract [en]

Despite the many historical links between literature and rhetoric, teachers of literature have made relatively few attempts to draw on rhetoric for teaching purposes. The present article suggests how this may be done, and argues for the pedagogical benefits of taking a rhetorical approach to literature. By means of a close reading of the first chapter of Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, I demonstrate how a text may be systematically explored through the five steps (partes) of the classical rhetorical process. In conclusion, it suggests that rhetoric may be a means to bridge the gap between the many facets of English as a second language subject, as rhetoric provides a holistic framework allowing us to study literature and culture as language, and vice versa.
