BOOK EXCERPT:

This volume, a sequel to Form Miming Meaning (1999), offers a selection of papers given at the second international symposium on iconicity (Amsterdam 1999). In the light of semiotic, linguistic and literary theory the studies gathered here investigate how iconicity works on all levels of language, in literary texts and other forms of verbal discourse. They investigate, among other subjects, the semiotic foundations of iconicity, the role played by iconicity in language evolution and in the way words are positioned syntactically. Special consideration is given to the iconic nature of metaphor and the 'mise en abyme', to iconically motivated punctuation and other typographic matters such as the manipulation of colour, fonts and spacing in advertising and in poetry. Other studies show how iconicity influences Shakespeare's rhetoric, the structural design of Margaret Atwood's writings and the changing fashions in fictional landscape description. Thus, these analyses of 'the motivated sign' represent yet another strong challenge to “Saussure's dogma of arbitrariness” (Jakobson).

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 2 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The novel, Rickshaw Boy, also known as Camel Xiangzi/Luotuo Xiangzi (骆驼祥子), is a contemporary literary masterpiece written by the Chinese novelist, Lao She/Shu Qingchun (老舍/舒庆春, 1899-1966). The novel describes the tragic fate and exploitation of rickshaw pullers during the period of social unrest and turmoil in the 1920s (before the revolution of 1949). Specifically, "Camel Xiangzi" tells the life experience of a young, strong and enthusiastic rickshaw driver, Xiangzi (祥子), in China's Peiping City (name of Beijing 1928-1949, 中国北平城). In fact, Xiangzi is a representative of the working masses of the old Chinese society. Xiangzi, coming from the countryside, is a bankrupt young farmer. He is hardworking, simple, kind and always eager to buy his own rickshaw with honest labor. To be an independent rickshaw puller is Xiangzi's wish, hope, and even religion. With hard work and perseverance, he spent three years saving money, and finally realized his goal and became a self-supporting rickshaw puller. However, just six months after pulling, the rickshaw was destroyed. Xiangzi was not discouraged, and again started stubbornly from the beginning, and started to save money. However, all his savings were blackmailed and looted by selfish people he trusted the most. Kindle Edition: www.amazon.com/dp/B0893TFJ9G Paperback Edition: www.amazon.com/dp/B08924GFJ2 The book has 10 chapters in the following order: Chapter 1: Three years of hard work, Xiangzi buys a rickshaw (第一章:奋战三年,祥子买车) Chapter 2: The rickshaw was taken away (第二章:车被收走,祥子被迫行军) Chapter 3: Xiangzi flees and sells camels (第三章:祥子出逃,卖了骆驼) Chapter 4: Xiangzi desperately earns money (第四章:祥子拼命挣钱,包月不久辞职) Chapter 5: Xiangzi was lured by Hu Niu (第五章:祥子被虎妞引诱) Chapter 6: The rickshaw was broken (第六章:祥子拉包月摔坏了车) Chapter 7: Hu Niu fakes pregnancy (第七章:虎妞假怀孕,找祥子要说法) Chapter 8: Xiangzi's money was blackmailed by Detective Sun (第八章:祥子的钱被孙侦探勒索干净) Chapter 9: Xiangzi and Hu Niu get married (第九章:祥子和虎妞结婚虎妞难产去世) Chapter 10: Xiaofuzi commits suicide, Xiangzi becomes depraved (第十章:小福子自杀祥子变堕落) The current book volume, China's Great Contemporary Literature 2, is a Level 5 Chinese reading practice book.
