Der Aspekt des Reisens in Jasper Ffordes Parodie The Eyre Affair by Miriam Tilger Summary

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 2,0, Universität Mannheim (Anglistisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Strange Travels, 13 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 2001 erscheint der erste Roman des walisischen Autoren Jasper Fforde: “The Eyre Affair“; der Erste von drei Bänden, nachdem das Manuskript zunächst von sechsundsiebzig Verlagen abgelehnt worden war. Inzwischen gilt Jasper Ffordes Trilogie im angelsächsischen Raum als Kult. The Eyre Affaireinem bestimmten Genre zuzuordnen ist nahezu unmöglich, da es viele Elemente verschiedenster Richtungen in sich birgt: um diesen Roman optimal in den Regalen diverser Bibliotheken einordnen zu können, müsste wohl eine Rubrik „Kriminal-Science-Fiction-Fantasie-Parodie“ eingeführt werden. Allerdings lässt sich das Genre unter literaturwissenschaftlichem Gesichtspunkt durchaus näher bestimmen als postmoderne, metafiktionale Parodie. Seinen einzigartigen Charakter erhält dieses Werk nicht zu letzt auf Grund seiner Vielschichtigkeit. Er gleicht einer Zwiebel unter derer Hautschichten die Handlungsstränge miteinander verquickt und verbunden sind - auch oder vor allem auf intertextueller Ebene: „Fforde überfrachtet seinen Roman mit unzähligen Anspielungen auf Hochwie Trivialliteratur, konfrontiert den Leser mit Bram Stokers Vampirjägerzubehör wie mit der Innenwelt eines William Wordsworth, spielt auf Spionageroman von Ian Fleming bis John le Carré an, bricht der walisischen Literatur mehr als nur eine Lanze und zerpflückt hinsichtlich der Shakespearschen Urheberschaft lustvoll eine Spekulation nach der anderen.“ Obgleich sich Punkt 3 mit der Entwicklung des Parodienbegriffs auseinandersetzt, sollThe Eyre Affairim Folgenden nicht als postmoderne Parodie derJane Eyrevon Charlotte Bronte behandelt werden. Es soll vielmehr der Aspekt des Reisens untersucht werden, bezüglich der Reisevarianten, Transportmedien oder auch Intentionen der Reisenden. Die oben genannte Verwobenheit des Textes macht es nicht einfach einzelne Aspekte isoliert von einander zu betrachten. Daher müssen bei der folgenden Betrachtung leider einige sicherlich spannende Aspekte zwar erwähnt - soweit sie relevant sind- , weitestgehend aber unbeachtet bzw. stark vernachlässigt werden.

A Breath of Fresh Eyre by Margarete Rubik,Elke Mettinger-Schartmann Summary

Ever since its publication in 1847 Jane Eyre – one of the most popular English novels of all time – has fascinated scholars and a wide reading public alike and has proved a source of inspiration to successive generations of creative writers and artists. There is hardly any other hypotext that has been re-worked in so many adaptations for stage and screen, has inspired so many painters and musicians, and has been so often imitated, re-written, parodied or extended by prequels and sequels. New versions in turn refer to and revise older rewritings or take up suggestions from Brontë scholarship, creating a dense intertextual web.The essays collected in this volume do justice to the variety of media involved in theJane Eyre reworkings, by covering narrative, visual and stage adaptations, including an adaptor's perspective. Contributions review a diverse range of works, from postcolonial revision to postmodern fantasy, from imaginary after-lives to science fiction, from plays and Hollywood movies to opera, from lithographs and illustrated editions to comics and graphic novels.The volume thus offers a comprehensive collection of reworkings that also takes into account recent novels, plays and works of art that were published after Patsy Stoneman's seminal 1996 study on Brontë Transformations.

The Constant Rabbit by Jasper Fforde Summary

"Every book of Fforde's seems to be a cause for celebration." -- Charles Yu, The New York Times Book Review on Early Riser A new stand-alone novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Early Riser and the Thursday Next series England, 2022. There are 1.2 million human-size rabbits living in the UK. They can walk, talk, drive cars, and they like to read Voltaire, the result of an Inexplicable Anthropomorphizing Event fifty-five years before. A family of rabbits is about to move into Much Hemlock, a cozy little village in Middle England where life revolves around summer fetes, jam making, gossipy corner stores, and the oh-so-important Best Kept Village awards. No sooner have the rabbits arrived than the villagers decide they must depart, citing their propensity to burrow and breed, and their shameless levels of veganism. But Mrs Constance Rabbit is made of sterner stuff, and her and her family decide they are to stay. Unusually, their neighbors--longtime resident Peter Knox and his daughter, Pippa--decide to stand with them . . . and soon discover that you can be a friend to rabbits or humans, but not both. With a blossoming romance, acute cultural differences, enforced rehoming to a MegaWarren in Wales, and the full power of the ruling United Kingdom Anti-Rabbit Party against them, Peter and Pippa are about to question everything they had ever thought about their friends, their nation, and their species. An inimitable blend of satire, fantasy, and thriller, The Constant Rabbit is the latest dazzlingly original foray into Jasper Fforde's ever-astonishing creative genius.
