    I've had teachers who used Lacan a lot, and not always with great results - sometimes you end up feeling that all books are saying the same thing about the "nom/non du père" (name/no of the father)...

    Interesting, thank you. I didn't know all that. And yes, you're right about time periods - there are always overlaps and composers who are hard to categorize.

    I'd say Debussy was an impressionist, actually. When I first listened to him, that was the movement that came to my mind, and a piano teacher of mine confirmed it. I don't know if everyone uses that...

    Ooops! Sorry! :blush: There are quite vivid city descriptions in Toni Morrison's Jazz (a few passages about how the city makes black newcomers forget their roots, in particular), in Ellison's...

    Difficult. Funnily enough, I can remember far more vivid city descriptions in 19th century novels... The first that came to mind for the 20th was Ulysses, actually. I suppose Dubliners could work as...

    Sorry, I'd missed your question before. To answer your question (I think I wasn't very clear the first time around), I just meant (rather vacuously :p ) that syllabic verse is now less congenial to...

    Read the rest of your post, which is pretty conclusive (even if I still think Rochester is made out to be a baddy until his redemption :p ), but I would quibble with the above: the morals of a...

    Why not.. Your interpretation is interesting and I hadn't thought of the problem in such a way. I saw his showering of Jane with presents and especially dresses as a (subconscious?) way to make up...

    I agree with your third paragraph, and think it's true that it is easier for a woman in the 19th century to defend the cause of women than the cause of blacks. On that subject, by the way, while i do...

    Hmm, if you read the novel carefully, though, you do come to realize that there is something about foreign women that Jane (and probably Bronte) didn't like much. Consider also the fact that all the...

    Maybe because they needed, not only to prove the greatness of their nation, but to establish their nation as something more than an ex(tra) European colony? If I remember well, there was a drive at...

    Oh yes, she's disturbing enough! I've read Lust, as well as another one by her, and her writing is often shocking stuff. I wonder whether she isn't a little bit disturbed, actually.

    I haven't read Julius Caesar, but isn't iambic pentameter considered as the noble verse? Shouldn't it give more weight and authority - maybe traditional, old-fashioned authority - to what Marc...
