BAKER, Janet E. Archibald MacMechan : Canadian Man of Letters. Lockeport, Nova Scotia : Roseway Publishing, (2000). First Edition. Pp. (5),6-240. Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated grey card covers. A biography of essayist, novelist, critic, scholar, and eminent Nova Scotian Archibald MacMechan, (.b. June 21, 1822, Kitchener, Ontario - d. August 7, 1933). "Archibald MacMechan taught English at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, between 1889and 1931. His students included Ernest Buckler, Lucy Maud Montgomery and H elen Creighton, and his influence as a teacher was far reaching. He was very active as a book reviewer whose reviews were widely read and often ahead of their time. Writers as disparate as Herman Melville and Virginia Woolf wrote to him expressing their appreciation of his readings of their work. MacMechan himself thought he would be best remembered as a chronicler of NovaScotia's seafaring past. His accounts of significant moments in the provin ce's history were published in three volumes - Old Province Tales, Sagas ofthe Sea, and There Go The Ships. Popular when they were published in the 1 920s, they are now out of print. This study of MacMechan is an attempt to place his work in its context and bring it to the attention of a new generation of readers." - rear cover. Chapters : 1. Scholar; 2. Critic of Poetry; 3. Critic of Prose Fiction; 4. Essayist; 5. Chronicler. With Conclusion, Bibliography, and Appendices. Very good. 10.00

74 BARBER, Bruce GUILBAUT, Serge O'BRIAN, John NEWMAN, Barnett Voices of Fire : Art, Rage, Power, and the State. paperback
University of Toronto Press, Toronto / Buffalo / London, 1996, ISBN:0802078036 
BARBER, Bruce, Serge GUILBAUT, and John O'BRIAN (eds.). Voices of Fire : Art, Rage, Power, and the State. Introduction by John O'Brian. Toronto / Buffalo / London : University of Toronto Press, (91996). Pp (6),[vii]-xiv,(2),[3]-210,(2). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, illustrated white card covers, lettered in red. "On 7 March 1990 the National Gallery of Canada issued a press release announcing its purchase of a large abstract painting by the American artist Barnett Newman for $1.8 million. Within 72 hours the gallery was under attack both for its selection of Voice of Fire and for the price tag attached to it. Objections came from across Canada and from all quarters. The Voice of Fire controversy was the most extensive and heated debate over visual art ever to have taken place in Canada. This anthology can be seen as acase-study, providing both a historical account of the outcome of the Nati onal Gallery's purchase of the painting and an understanding of why the gallery's actions provoked such strong opinions and feelings. In this volume the editors also address the peculiar and paradoxical character of abstract art in general and the problems it consistently poses for viewers. Newman'swork is presented as the focus of these concerns. The attack on the galler y by the press, the general public, Canadian artists, and politicians is documented in the first section by a broad selection of cartoons satirizing the painting, press photographs, news releases, editorials, letters to the editor, and public exchanges. In the second section three essays offer contrasting accounts of the controversy and its significance. The first considers the social processes by which art becomes art, the second focuses on the role of the media in shaping public opinion about art, and the third compares the reception of Voice of Fire in two distinctive frameworks, first at Expo '67 in Montreal and then in Ottawa in 1990. In the final part four papers given at a symposium on Voice of Fire organized by the gallery in October 1990 (a combined effort at damage control and art criticism) are presented, as well as a transcription of the public dialogue between speakers and audience which followed." (Abstract). Contents : Introduction: Bruising the Public Eye (by John O'Brian). Documents : Chronology; Graphic Satires; Texts. Essays : Vox Ignis Vox Populi (by Thierry de Duve); Thalia Meets Melpomene: The Higher Meaning of the Voice of Fire and Flesh Dress Controversies (by Bruce Barber); Who's Afraid of Barnett Newman?

A volume in the Cultural Politics series. "For a long time arguments have been advanced, mostly in very general term s, about the power of the mass media, but one medium has attracted just about all the main kinds of claims about its effects: comics. This book systematically re-examines claims about media influence through the arguments over comics. There are case-studies on the Beano and other 'funnies', Jackie and romance, Action and 'violence', Bunty and 'fantasy', and Disney and cultural imperialism. In each case, the book both re-examines the theories and methods used, and returns to the origianl comics -- reproducing some for readers. Approaches to comics ranging from traditional 'effects' theory to post-structuralist analysis are tested; and concepts such as 'identification'and 'stereotype' systematically explored for the first time. Through these , a new theorisation of media power is formulated and tested. A book both for comic enthusiasts and for media analysts." - from the rear cover. Contents: 1.

[i]-xvii,(1),[1]-422,(8). 8vo, beige car d covers. "The English think of Arthur as their own - stamped on the landscape in scores of placenames, echoed in the names of their princes even today. Yet if the English had anything to do with a historical Arthur, it was as his bitterest enemies and hi-jackers of the British heritage. This book, which brings together the work of leading international scholars, is the first comprehensive treatment of Arthurian literature in the English languageto the end of the Middle Ages and traces the process by which the Arthuria n legends were assimilated to become an important part of the English cultural heritage. Literary studies are interspersed with chapters on the political and social manifestations of the Arthurian legend, the influence of continental romance tradition, and the mediaeval legacy to later centuries of English literature." -- from rear cover.
