Victor Brombert is one of that vanishing breed, the man of letters. His previous books, which include studies of Hugo, Stendhal, and Flaubert, have tended to focus on French literature. But Brombert is equally at home in English, German, Russian, and Italian, and seems to remember almost every sentence he's read, which gives his prose precisely the kind of allusive depth that's lacking in most academic criticism. Certainly his over-the-top mastery of the canon puts him in an excellent position to write In Praise of Antiheroes--a vest-pocket survey of the antihero in literature, ranging over 150 years and 5 different languages. Brombert traces the birth of the antihero--a "perturber and a disturber," and occasionally what we moderns might call a slacker--back to Georg Buchner's Woyzeck. He then fast-forwards to such antiheroic masterworks as Jaroslav Hasek's The Good Soldier Svejk and Nikolai Gogol's nightmare vision of haberdashery, "The Overcoat." These are all fictional or dramatic works, which seem to be the most likely incubators of contrarian victory. Yet the centerpiece of Brombert's book is his chapter on Primo Levi's classic Holocaust memoir, Survival in Auschwitz. The author zooms in on a particular episode, in which Levi tutors a fellow prisoner in Italian by quoting Dante's terza rima reconstruction of Ulysses. In the ultimate antiheroic setting--the dehumanizing black hole of the concentration camps--this pedagogical 19th century,20th century,european,history,history and criticism,humanities,literary criticism,literary criticism and collections,literature,literature and fiction Humanities, University Of Chicago Press

ISBN: 9780226075525

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: UNIV OF CHICAGO PR], Though they fail, by design, to live up to conventional expectations of mythic heroes, antiheroes are not necessarily "failures." They display different kinds of courage more in tune with our time and our needs: deficiency translated into strength, failure experienced as honesty, dignity achieved through humiliation. Brombert explores these paradoxes in the works of Buchner, Gogol, Dostoevsky, Flaubert, Svevo, Hasek, Frisch, Camus, and Levi. Coming from diverse cultural and linguistic traditions, these writers all use the figure of the antihero to question handed-down assumptions, to re-examine moral categories, and to raise issues of survival and renewal embodying the spirit of an uneasy age.Versandfertig in über 4 Wochen, [SC: 0.00]

Détails sur le livre
In Praise of Antiheroes: Figures and Themes in Modern European Literature, 1830-1980

In an age of upheaval and challenged faith, traditional heroes are hard to come by, and harder still to love, with their bloodstained hands and backs unbowed by the consequences of their actions. Through penetrating readings of key works of modern European literature, Victor Brombert shows how a new kind of hero--the antihero--has arisen to replace the toppled heroic model. Though they fail, by design, to live up to conventional expectations of mythic heroes, antiheroes are not necessarily "failures." They display different kinds of courage more in tune with our time and our needs: deficiency translated into strength, failure experienced as honesty, dignity achieved through humiliation. Brombert explores these paradoxes in the works of Buchner, Gogol, Dostoevsky, Flaubert, Svevo, Hasek, Frisch, Camus, and Levi. Coming from diverse cultural and linguistic traditions, these writers all use the figure of the antihero to question handed-down assumptions, to reexamine moral categories, and to raise issues of survival and renewal embodying the spirit of an uneasy age.
