Since the publication of his groundbreaking books Writing Without Teachers and Writing with Power, Peter Elbow has revolutionized how people think about writing. Now, in Vernacular Eloquence, he makes a vital new contribution to both practice and theory. The core idea is simple: we can enlist virtues from the language activity most people find easiest-speaking-for the language activity most people find hardest-writing. Speech, with its spontaneity, naturalness of expression, and fluidity of thought, has many overlooked linguistic and rhetorical merits. Through several easy to employ techniques, writers can marshal this "wisdom of the tongue" to produce stronger, clearer, more natural writing. This simple idea, it turns out, has deep repercussions. Our culture of literacy, Elbow argues, functions as though it were a plot against the spoken voice, the human body, vernacular language, and those without privilege-making it harder than necessary to write with comfort or power. Giving speech a central role in writing overturns many empty preconceptions. It causes readers to think critically about the relationship between speech, writing, and our notion of literacy. Developing the political implications behind Elbow's previous books, Vernacular Eloquence makes a compelling case that strengthening writing and democratizing it go hand in hand.

There are a number of books which aim to help doctoral researchers write the PhD. This book offers something different - the scholarly detox. This is not a faddish alternative, it’s not extreme. It’s a moderate approach intended to gently interrupt old ways of doing things and establish new habits and orientations to writing the PhD. The book addresses the problems that most doctoral researchers experience at some time during their candidature – being unclear about their contribution, feeling lost in the literature, feeling like an imposter, not knowing how to write with authority, wanting to edit rather than revise. Each chapter addresses a problem, suggests an alternative framing, and then offers strategies designed to address the real issue. Detox Your Writing is intended to be a companionable work book – something doctoral researchers can use throughout their doctorate to ask questions about taken-for-granted ways of writing and reading, and to develop new and effective approaches. The authors’ distinctive approach to doctoral writing mobilises the rich traditions of linguistic scholarship, as well as the literatures on scholarly identity formation. Building on years of expertise they place their emphasis both on tools and techniques as well as the discursive practices of becoming a scholar. The authors provide a wide repertoire of strategies that doctoral researchers can select from, rather than a linear lock step progression through a set of exercises. The book is a toolkit but a far from prescriptive one. It shows that there are many routes to developing a personal academic voice and identity and a well-crafted text. With points for reflection alongside examples from a broad range of disciplines, the book offers thinking tools, writing tools, linguistic tools, and reading tools which are relevant to all stages of doctoral research. This practical text can be used in all university doctoral training and composition and writing courses. However, it is not a dry how-to-do–it manual that ignores debates or focuses solely on the mechanical at the expense of the lived experience of doctoral research. It provides a practical, theorised, real-world, guide to postgraduate writing.

In seiner Rede anlässlich der Verleihung des Nobelpreises für Literatur gibt Bob Dylan erstmals umfassend Einblick in seine literarischen Einflüsse und die Ursprünge seines Songwritings. Woher stammen die mythologischen Anspielungen in seinen Texten, woher die manchmal fast biblischen Gleichnisse? Welche Bücher haben seine Einstellung zum Leben geprägt? Und wo hat er die speziellen Ausdrucksweisen, Jargons, Kunstgriffe und Techniken gelernt? Neben dem prägenden Einfluss von Buddy Holly sowie der Country-, Blues- und Folkmusik der späten 50er und frühen 60er Jahre mit ihrer von spezieller Mundart geprägten Lyrics fließen vielfältige literarische Motive in seine Texte ein: die biblische Symbolik in Moby Dick, die Drastik eines Kriegsromans wie Im Westen nichts Neues, aber vor allem das Motiv der Reise aus der Odyssee als universeller, menschlicher Grundverfassung. Aus diesem Bodensatz heraus schuf Bob Dylan, wie er selber sagt, Lyrics, wie sie noch niemand zuvor gehört hatte.

George Saunders, der unumstrittene Meister der zeitgenössischen Shortstory, hat mit seinen neuen Erzählungen nicht nur die literarische Welt im Sturm genommen. Sein Band »Zehnter Dezember« war das Buchereignis des Frühjahrs 2013 und sprang sofort auf die oberen Ränge der New-York-Times-Bestsellerliste. In Frank Heiberts kongenialer Übersetzung liegen diese brillanten, einzigartigen, witzigen, zärtlichen und übermütigen Erzählungen jetzt auch auf Deutsch vor. Niemand versteht es, so virtuos und ungewöhnlich über ganz gewöhnliche, unvollkommene Menschen zu schreiben, die sich mit einer nicht ganz gewöhnlichen, unvollkommenen Welt herumschlagen, wie George Saunders. Da ist zum Beispiel die fünfzehnjährige Alison. Als sie, den Kopf voller grandioser Weltumarmungsgefühle, von einem Fremden entführt zu werden droht, steht der Nachbarjunge, der alles mit ansieht, vor einer schweren Entscheidung: Soll er ignorieren, dass das schönste aller Mädchen vermutlich Opfer eines Verbrechens wird, oder soll er sich über alle moralischen Gebote, nach denen ihn seine Eltern großgezogen haben, hinwegsetzen und eingreifen? Oder da ist der Mann, den medizinische Versuche über die Grenzen seines Selbst hinausführen, und zwar sowohl in puncto Lust als auch in puncto Mordlust. Und da ist in der Titelgeschichte der dicke, einsame Junge, der sich auf unsicheres Eis begibt und dabei die Selbstmordabsichten eines alten kranken Mannes durchkreuzt... George Saunders seziert in seinen oft nur wenige Seiten langen Storys mit beißendem Humor und oft nur wenigen Strichendie ganze Fehlbarkeit und Schwäche der menschlichen Natur wie unserer Gesellschaft und Zeit. Diese Erzählungen vergisst man lange nicht.

A central feature of English Renaissance humanism was its reverence for classical Latin as the one true form of eloquent expression. Yet sixteenth-century writers increasingly came to believe that England needed an equally distinguished vernacular language to serve its burgeoning national community. Thus, one of the main cultural projects of Renaissance rhetoricians was that of producing a "common" vernacular eloquence, mindful of its classical origins yet self-consciously English in character. The process of vernacularization began during Henry VIII's reign and continued, with fits and starts, late into the seventeenth century. However, as Jenny C. Mann shows in Outlaw Rhetoric, this project was beset with problems and conflicts from the start. Outlaw Rhetoric examines the substantial and largely unexplored archive of vernacular rhetorical guides produced in England between 1500 and 1700. Writers of these guides drew on classical training as they translated Greek and Latin figures of speech into an everyday English that could serve the ends of literary and national invention. In the process, however, they confronted aspects of rhetoric that run counter to its civilizing impulse. For instance, Mann finds repeated references to Robin Hood, indicating an ongoing concern that vernacular rhetoric is "outlaw" to the classical tradition because it is common, popular, and ephemeral. As this book shows, however, such allusions hint at a growing acceptance of the nonclassical along with a new esteem for literary production that can be identified as native to England. Working across a range of genres, Mann demonstrates the effects of this tension between classical rhetoric and English outlawry in works by Spenser, Shakespeare, Sidney, Jonson, and Cavendish. In so doing she reveals the political stakes of the vernacular rhetorical project in the age of Shakespeare.
