Paul Auster's 'City of Glass' as a Postmodern Detective Novel

Paul Auster's 'City of Glass' as a Postmodern Detective Novel by Toni Rudat Book Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, RWTH Aachen University, 13 entries in the bibliography, language: English, comment: Although it is considerably discussed at what time the beginnings of the postmodern era is to be set, it is irrefutable the City of Glassbelongs to postmodern literature. This paper tries to demonstrate in what way postmodern qualities are converted into the novel City of Glass., abstract: PAUL AUSTERs novel City of Glass published in 1985 appeared during the period of the postmodern era.1 Although it is considerably discussed at what time the beginnings of the postmodern era is to be set, it is irrefutable that City of Glass belongs to postmodern literature. To analyse in how far PAUL AUSTERs City of Glass serves as a representative of the postmodern era and to show the reader in what way postmodern qualities are converted into the writings of that time, the main part of this paper will be divided up into two sections. The first section serves to define the coming up of this movement and the qualities it possesses within the genre of detective fiction. Furthermore some important idealistic features like the idea of reality and identity have to be taken into consideration. The short introduction of the two identity-constituting models by ERIKSON and MEAD will provide a better overview of the idea of identity formation. Within the second section the novel itself will be taken into consideration. Therefore it is necessary to take a close look at the main character Daniel Quinn and his character development the crisis of his identity in the course of the novel respectively. Besides another striking factor, namely the appearance of doublings and triplings of characters, has to be clarified as well as the role of the narrator. The conclusion at the end of the paper is supposed then to show to what extent City of Glass belongs to postmodern literature and whi"

Space, Gender and Subjectivity in Paul Auster’s Novel "City of Glass"

City Of Glass Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Space, Gender and Subjectivity in Paul Auster’s Novel "City of Glass" by Antje Peukert Book Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2002 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Potsdam, course: New Women in the 19th Century, language: English, abstract: “I'm not really out to prove anything. In fact, it‟s all done tongue-in-cheek. An imaginative reading, I guess you could say.” This is what Paul Auster (the character) says to Daniel Quinn in Auster's novel City of Glass about his essay on Don Quixote. The following paper on Auster's novel City of Glass is not written tongue-in-cheek but it is adventurous nonetheless. Based on Linda Hentschel's theory of pornotopical techniques of looking, I will concentrate my reading of Auster's text on aspects orientated towards gender, space, self and subjectivity. I am going to take up Hentschel's ideas of space, especially in regard to urban space, the city, and also her ideas of how subjectivity is constructed along gendered lines. I will try to show that although Auster's text challenges and destabilizes ideas and concepts like rationality, language and body, it keeps to a common gender model. Women as characters are visibly absent from the text. If they appear at all they do it marginally and only to trigger off some action, staying passive themselves. The text tells about different kinds of manhood. All main characters are male and I think exactly this setting can only be made (perhaps even unconsciously) in contrast to its constructed female Other. So femininity becomes visible not primarily in the form of characters but in form of particular concepts. I suggest that the city in City of Glass, which is New York, serves as metonomy for different concepts of "woman", for example the mother, the (dead) wife and the lover. Daniel Quinn, the main character of the novel incessantly walks the city but instead of reinforcing or even establishing a subjective position in the vast metropolis he fails completely and dissolves within the urban space. As such he is not only the absolute anti-subject but he is also an example for what may happen to a man when he changes his position from having room/space to being room/space. The first part of this essay will concentrate on Quinn's relation to New York, how it changes from „oceanic‟ feeling to utter desire and how it always depends on his relation to women. The second chapter focuses on ideas of identity, subjectivity and self in the novel.

Paul Auster’s "City of Glass" in the Tradition of Detective Fiction: a Psychoanalytical Analysis

City Of Glass Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Paul Auster’s "City of Glass" in the Tradition of Detective Fiction: a Psychoanalytical Analysis by Oliver Strecker Book Summary:

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Dusseldorf "Heinrich Heine" (Philosophische Fakultät), language: English, abstract: The topic of this paper is to examine the detective novel City of Glass, published by Paul Auster in 1985, from a psychoanalytical point of view. This analytic approach, combining both detective fiction and psychoanalysis, is more natural than might appear at first glance. After all, the modus operandi of the psychoanalyst and the detective are quite similar. A close contemplation of details, a search for hints and finally a development of a theory that unites the small signs in a big picture are crucial steps in both fields. Sigmund Freud laid out the common importance of details as following: And if you were a detective engaged in tracing a murder, would you expect to find that the murderer had left his photograph behind at the place of the crime, with his address attached? Or would you not necessarily have to be satisfied with comparatively slight and obscure traces of the person you were in search of? So do not let us underestimate small indications, by their help we may succeed in getting on the track of something bigger. Furthermore, Freud emphasized how psychoanalysts are practicing a kind of detective-work as well: “We have to uncover psychic material; and in order to do this we have invented a number of detective devices.” Due to those parallels, “psychological studies of mystery and detective narratives have a long and varied history.” Most of these approaches have analyzed traditional detective fiction. Auster’s very untraditional detective novel, however, plays with the conventions of the genre and creates its very own detective universe, a confusing play of constantly changing identities. This universe shows parallels to the world-view of the French psychoanalyst Jaques Lacan, as: Lacanian psychoanalysis offers a theory of the subject that does without concepts such as unity, origin, continuity. It goes from the assumption of a fundamentally split subject and thus comes up with a model of subjectivity that grounds itself on a constitutive lack rather that wholeness. These parallels are not a pure coincidence as Auster is familiar with Lacan’s work and quotes themes of Lacanian psychoanalysis. Also, Lacan himself applied his theories to detective fiction, such as The Purloined Letter by Edgar Allen Poe. In this work, the central question that shall be the focus of investigation is: From a psychoanalytical point of view − how does Paul Auster position his main character Daniel Quinn in the context of traditional detective novels?(...)

Graphic adaptation of Paul Auster’s "City of Glass" – Visual language and symbolism

City Of Glass Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Graphic adaptation of Paul Auster’s "City of Glass" – Visual language and symbolism by Alisa Westermann Book Summary:

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Münster (Englisches Seminar), course: Graphic Novels, language: English, abstract: It was a wrong number that started it, the telephone ringing three times in the dead of night, and the voice on the other end asking for someone he was not. (Auster, 1985; 3) Paul Auster’s anti-detective novel City of Glass is the story of a man, whose life accidentally angles off. More and more, he blunders into the complexity of a criminal case in search of the significant principle. Obsessively, he adapts his action to the stranger until he finally loses hisself. Although Auster’s novel, which is based on the nature and the function of language, is rather non-visual, Paul Karasik and David Mazzucchelli succeeded in adopting it into a graphic novel that is more than just a translation from one genre into another. They managed to create a visual language full of metaphors, symbols and icons that add a new layer of meaning to the story. This is the reason why I decided to pick City of Glass: The graphic novel as the basis of my term paper. This thesis will argue that a graphic adaptation of a literary work can be more than just an illustrated copy of a superior novel and worth an analysis on its own. Furthermore, I will take a deeper look at the visual language, specifically, the visual metaphors and symbols, which build up the graphic novel and how these finding can be adapted into learning situations. First of all, I will give a summary of City of Glass: the novel followed by a definition of the anti-detective genre with the intention to point out, that the visual language of City of Glass: the graphic novel reflects this genre. Afterwards, a survey of the graphic novel as well as an analysis of its structure and composition and its visual language and symbolism is given. A brief outline of how these findings can be useful in teaching and learning situations will precede the conclusion.
