  2. Nabokov, History and the Texture of Time

    By Will Norman

    From Sunjata to So(u)l

    By Gregory E. Rutledge

    Series: Routledge Studies in Twentieth-Century Literature

    Just as Africa and the West have traditionally fit into binaries of Darkness/Enlightenment, Savage/Modern, Ugly/Beautiful, and Ritual/Art, among others, much of Western cultural production rests upon the archetypal binary of Trickster/Epic, with trickster aesthetics and commensurate cultural forms...

    By Jane Suzanne Carroll
