The Political Imagination of Thomas Pynchon's Later Novels
Autor: Diana Benea
An: 2017
Pagini: 247
Format: A5 (148 x 210 mm)
ISBN: 978-973-558-993-6
Categoria: Limbă, lingvistică, literatură în limbi străine
   This book is an attempt to illuminate the ways in which Thomas Pynchon’s later novels - Vineland (1990), Mason & Dixon (1997), Against the Day (2006), Inherent Vice (2009), and Bleeding Edge (2013) - configure a vibrant political imagination, which marks a significant departure from the paranoid and entropie vision of his earlier (high postmodernist) works. The more recent novels invite reflection on a series of issues invested with a significant ethical and political dimension, committing themselves to a vocabulary that foregrounds the values of community, social justice, relationality, and interdependence. By placing this corpus in conversation with influential works in contemporary political philosophy, this study argues that the subtle shift of sensibility at the heart of Pynchon’s later fiction is most visible in its re-envisioning of the relation of the seif to the Other in more hospitable terms.
