This in-depth study of the essay as a form of literary and philosophical expression examines the links between essay writing and the concept of friendship over a long textual tradition running from Plato's "Phaedrus" through Montaigne's "Essais" to Derrida's "Politiques de l'amitie". Literary critic and philosopher Kuisma Korhonen suggests that the search for "textual friendship" motivates essayists as diverse as Bacon, Saint-Evremond, Mme de Lambert, Emerson, and Derrida. All of these writers have written at least one essay about friendship, and in each case, Korhonen interprets the notion of friendship as a figure for the textual encounter, both between the writer and reader and between each text and its many referenced predecessors. Korhonen points out that despite the boundary of text separating writer and reader, the essay invites friendship. Through its references to other writers it links readers and writers across boundaries of time and space.Korhonen discusses at length these "impossible encounters", drawing on the ethical thought of Emmanuel Levinas, especially his emphasis on the ethical implications of "the Other". Korhonen goes on to construct "an ethical genealogy of the essay", focusing mainly on Montaigne. He notes three textual strategies in Montaigne's essay: the use of rhetoric in producing a "friendly ethos", the philosophical dialogue going back to Plato as a subtext for the essay form, and a Pyrrhonian scepticism that questions the status of propositional language. Finally, Korhonen examines specific texts on friendship, including Plato, Cicero, Seneca, Augustine, Montaigne, Bacon, Emerson, Saint-Evremont, Mme de Lambert, and Derrida. This is a work of great erudition that makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the expressive possibilities and philosophical implications of the essay.

This text focuses on literary representations of three categories of ideal friendship - Christian, chivalric and humanistic - and the writers' strategies of establishing the ethical authority of their contemporary friends and codes on a par with antiquity's "amicitia perfecta". The study identifies the extent to which writers acknowledged women as perfect friends. The selected texts under examination include hagiographies, works of Bernard of Clairvaux and Aelred of Rievaulx, "The Quest of the Holy Grail", Thomas's "Tristan", the "Prose Lancelot", "Ami and Amile", the "Decameron" and L.B. Alberti's "Dell'amicizia". Literary comparatists and historians, ethical historians and students of rhetoric should be interested by the comparative study of the rhetorical topos of perfect friendship, the varied ethical criteria inherent there and the writers' strategies for representing and authorizing an idea.

Despite the deep-seated notion that the archetypal American poet sings a solitary "Song of Myself, " much of the most enduring American poetry has actually been preoccupied with friendship and its pleasures, contradictions, and discontents. Beautiful Enemies examines this obsession with the problems and paradoxes of friendship, tracing its eruption in the New American Poetry that emerges after the Second World War as a potent avant-garde movement. The book argues that a clash between friendship and nonconformity is central to postwar American poetry and its development. By focusing on of some of the most important and influential postmodernist American poets--the New York School poets John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara, and their close contemporary Amiri Baraka--the book offers a new interpretation of the peculiar dynamics of American avant-garde poetic communities and the role of the individual within them. At the same time, this study challenges both the reductive critiques of American individualism and the idealized, heavily biographical celebrations of literary camaraderie one finds in much critical discussion. Beautiful Enemies foregrounds a fundamental paradox: that at the heart of experimental American poetry pulses a commitment to individualism and dynamic movement that runs directly counter to an equally profound devotion to avant-garde collaboration and community. Delving into unmined archival evidence (including unpublished correspondence, poems, and drafts), the book demonstrates that this tense dialectic--between an aversion to conformity and a poetics of friendship--actually energizes postwar American poetry, drives the creation, meaning, and form of important poems, frames the interrelationships between certain key poets, and leaves contemporary writers with a complicated legacy to negotiate. Combining extensive readings of the poets with analysis of cultural, philosophical, and biographical contexts, Beautiful Enemies uncovers the collision between radical self-reliance and the siren call of the interpersonal at the core of twentieth-century American poetry.

Interdisciplinary in scope, this collection examines the varied and complex ways in which early modern Europeans imagined, discussed and enacted friendship, a fundamentally elective relationship between individuals otherwise bound in prescribed familial, religious and political associations. The volume is carefully designed to reflect the complexity and multi-faceted nature of early modern friendship, and each chapter comprises a case study of specific contexts, narratives and/or lived friendships. Contributors include scholars of British, French, Italian and Spanish culture, offering literary, historical, religious, and political perspectives. "Discourses and Representations of Friendship in Early Modern Europe, 1500-1700" lays the groundwork for a taxonomy of the transformations of friendship discourse in Western Europe and its overlap with emergent views of the psyche and the body, as well as of the relationship of the self to others, classes, social institutions and the state.

  • What's the story? : the fiction of romantic friendship, part I
  • Odds 'n' ends : the fiction of romantic friendship, part II
  • Sex and the city : Cecil Dreeme and the antebellum sex/gender system
  • Compulsory domesticity : Roderick Hudson, love, and friendship in the Gilded Age
  • How the other half loved : a saloonkeeper's daughter in the company of women
  • A tramp at home : Huckleberry Finn, romantic friendship, and the homeless man
  • The other man : homofiliation, marriage, and a hazard of new fortunes.
The modern idea of Victorians is that they were emotionless prudes, imprisoned by sexual repression and suffocating social constraints; they expressed love and affection only within the bounds of matrimony - if at all. And yet, a wealth of evidence contradicting this idea has been hiding in plain sight for close to a century. In "Manly Love", Axel Nissen turns to the novels and short stories of Victorian America to uncover the widely overlooked phenomenon of passionate friendships between men. Nissen's examination of the literature of the period brings to light a forgotten genre: the fiction of romantic friendship. Delving into works by Mark Twain, Henry James, William Dean Howells, and others, Nissen identifies the genre's unique features and explores the connections between romantic friendships in literature and in real life. Situating love between men at the heart of Victorian culture, Nissen radically alters our understanding of the American literary canon. And with its deep insights into the emotional and intellectual life of the period, "Manly Love" also offers a fresh perspective on nineteenth-century America's attitudes toward love, friendship, marriage, and sex.

  • Poems to sing and the hope for transcendence
  • Paradigms of friendship in the Tale of Ise
  • Poetic sequence in the Kagerō diary
  • The Tale of Genji : "Two cranes flying wing to wing" --The Uji chapters : "Maidens of the bridge."
Western scholars have tended to read Heian literature through the prism of female experience, stressing the imbalance of power in courtship and looking for evidence that women hoped to move beyond the constraints of marriage politics. Paul Schalow's original and challenging work inherits these concerns about the transcendence of love and carries them into a new realm of inquiry - the suffering of noblemen and the literary record of their hopes for transcendence through friendship. He traces this recurring theme, which he labels "courtly male friendship, " in five important literary works ranging from the tenth-century "Tale of Ise" to the early eleventh-century "Tale of Genji". Whether authored by men or women, the depictions of male friendship addressed in this work convey the differing perspectives of male and female authors profoundly shaped by their gender roles in the court aristocracy. Schalow's analysis clarifies in particular how Heian literature articulates the nobleman's wish to be known and appreciated fully by another man.
