Silence in Modern Literature and Philosophy
69,24 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book discusses the elusive centrality of silence in modern literature and philosophy, focusing on the writing and theory of Jean-Luc Nancy and Roland Barthes, the prose of Samuel Beckett, and the poetry of Wallace Stevens. It suggests that silence is best understood according to two categories: apophasis and reticence. Apophasis is associated with theology, and relates to a silence of ineffability and transcendence, reticence is associated with phenomenology, and relates to a silence of listenership and speechlessness. In a series of diverse though interrelated readings, the study examines figures of broken silence and silent voice in the prose of Samuel Beckett, the notion of shared silence in Jean-Luc Nancy and Roland Barthes, and ways in which the poetry of Wallace Stevens mounts lyrical negotiations with forms of unsayability and speechlessness.

300n in its second decade, the ignorance around AIDS persists. Suffering in Silence presents true accounts of HIV positive teachers who suffer for years in silence for fear of being isolated in their educational workplaces. Extreme anxiety over possible rejection by peers and the school community forces them to be silent. HIV becomes the terrible "secret" that they must bear alone. The school proves to be a difficult place as these teachers experience a poignant struggle between keeping and revealing their secret, between lying and telling the truth. Ultimately, the progression of their illness to full-blown AIDS makes it physically impossible to maintain silence. What happens to them when the private and public spheres collide, when the veil of secrecy is torn away and their AIDS status revealed? What was once private now enters the public domain, open to scrutiny and judgment. With a perspective on schools as "moral communities", the decisions and choices of the administrative authorities, both as individuals and as institutional representatives, have broad ethical implications as they decide whether teachers with AIDS can continue as active members of their school communities.

'All you have to do is find out why Harry is prepared to blame an innocent man. That's the thread. Follow it. You'll reach the Silent Ones. This is your way - our way - of making a difference.'With this challenge from Father Edmund Littlemore, Anselm returns to the Old Bailey to fight the most difficult and troubling case of his life. The man in the dock is Littlemore himself. He is charged with grave offences against Harry Brandwell who, it seems, is both a victim and a liar. But he's the only link to these others who've chosen silence over their right to justice.Unknown to Anselm, Robert Sambourne, a journalist, has been investigating Littlemore's background. And he's a man with a troubled past, always on the move, from Boston in the USA to Freetown in Sierra Leone, finally running from a London police station rather than explain himself. More disturbingly, Robert uncovers details of a carefully planned scheme to entice Anselm back into court, exploiting his reputation for honesty to secure a shock acquittal.Meanwhile Harry Brandwell - abused, abandoned and betrayed - has decided to take matters into his own hands.The Silent Ones examines the one crime that Church, State and Family thought they could hide in their own best interests, Anselm's return is a compelling novel about the anatomy of silence, the courage of victims and the redemptive power of public justice.
