The Quest for a Black Female Identity in Nella ...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Seminar paper from the year 2004 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (Seminar für Englische Philologie), course: Jazz in America, 8 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Nella Larsen's Quicksand was published to critical acclaim in 1928 and is saidto be one of the key texts of the Harlem Renaissance era. Larsen herself was ofDanish-Carribean ancestry and was highly interested in issues of racialidentity, especially as they relate to being female. For that reason one shouldnot be surprised that Quicksand focuses on the protagonist's struggles towardselfhood, her attempts to find her place in the world as a woman who isconsidered neither white nor black.The child of a Danish mother and a black West Indian father, a socalled"mulatto", Helga Crane finds herself outside of the black as well as thewhite world, fully comfortable in neither one nor the other. During herunhappy childhood she learns to regard her skin color with hatred and selfloathing,resulting in a deeply rooted sense of insecurity about her blacknessand mixed heritage, which continues to be felt all her life. Internalized (white)stereotypes about black womens´ promiscuous, "primitive" and immoralsexuality lead Helga to fear and repress her sensuality and female desires. Asshe detests and completely denies these emotions she is incapable ofdeveloping an identity as a woman either.In this seminar paper I will argue that Nella Larsen's Quicksand isabout Helga Crane's search for a black female identity which she will fail tofind. Further, my aim is to demonstrate how intimately connected race andgender oppressions are, since imposed definitions of blackness andwomanhood complicate Helgas search for her personal identity as a blackwoman.As Quicksand has a geographical symmetry to it, I will follow thispattern in my analysis. It starts out in the South in Naxos where Helga works asa teacher, then moves on to Chicago and Harlem, from there it shifts toCopenhagen, returns back to Harlem and finally ends in the deep South, in atiny Alabama town, where Helga's search ends in tragedy.

Jazzy Experinental-Scapes von Keisuke Matsuno (E-Gitarre), Moritz Baumgärtner (Drums and Percussion), Lars Graugaard (Laptop)nnJazzy & elektronische Experinental-Scapes von Keisuke Matsuno (E-Gitarre), Moritz Baumgärtner (Drums and Percussion), Lars Graugaard (Laptop) Danish avant-garde artist Lars Graugaard has teamed up with the young German modern jazz drummer Moritz Baumgärtner and experimental e-guitarist Keisuke Matsuno, and their joint effort, recorded one day in September 2016 in rudely demolished Berlin, is an intense and consummate jazz & rock & techno-driven, experimental affair. Baumgärtner contributes an expansive drumming style with lots of boom-and-room, but he also makes more delicate and psychedelic percussion figures somewhere between psychedelic and avantgarde. The electronic sounds are very varied and evolve throughout the album into electronic soundscapes of dark noise that are blended in with mysterious, sonic gestures of very different moods. And Matsuno tears out the most extravagant, distraught, unheardwithin- the-unheard sounds from his instrument, all in the most virtuoso and enthralling playing style. A powerful display of three unique artists that heralds striking and unpredictable developments. TRACKS: 1. Surfing on Ramen Noodles - dur. 5:36 2. Unspoken - dur. 13:43 3.

Hello and welcome to my world and life... In Blues and Jazz Stories you will get closely acquainted with the two unique and amazing cats who are the only cats in the world called Blues and Jazz. You will discover why and how they were given these beautiful musical names, you will share their adventures and enjoy my observations of and about them. You will understand why and how Cats (and other Pets) are on a Mission, what this mission is and how this is all connected. But it is not 'just' a cat(s) story. Neither is it 'just' another book (about cats). You will also meet me, my Danish husband's Russian princess, learn our love story and some funny challenges we have been 'enduring', coming from different countries, carrying different cultures and having different tastes. You will learn and fall in love with the concept of a summerhouse - in Denmark and in Sweden. And you will be overwhelmed with and by my love for Nature and its magic. What I hope for with my Stories is to find and reach those who will like to listen (read), will be touched and will feel joy.

Adler-Olsen, J: Hanging Girl
13,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Praise for The Hanging Girl “Adler-Olsen wields a one-two punch of psychological suspense, as his trademark parallel plot follows the remorseless killer’s manipulations while the humorous, sometimes touching rapport between Mørck and Assad threatens to steal the show. A must for procedural devotees and fans of Scandinavian mysteries.”— Booklist (starred review) “All the requisite Adler-Olsen hallmarks are on display here: the easy camaraderie of the investigative team; great moments of humor; and Mørck’s crotchety disposition. It helps to read the series in order, but these books are so good that it’s no hardship to start at the beginning.”— Bookpage   “An intriguing read for devoted fans.”— Library Journal   “Simultaneously sardonic and funny.”— Sacramento Bee   “This book is not for the faint of heart, but for readers who enjoy dark humor and wisecracking heroes and heroines, you’ll love Department Q.”— Suspense Magazine   “It can be hard to distinguish Scandinavian crime writers—there are a lot of them, and their names have consonant clusters and umlauts and all that jazz—but Jussi Adler-Olsen is a name to know. In a crowded genre, Adler-Olsen is an outlier.”—GQ.com  More Praise for Jussi Adler-Olsen's Department Q series “If you like the dark humor, wisecracking, and layered betrayals of Raymond Chandler, then read Adler-Olsen’s Department Q series.”— Men's Journal “A tense, pleasurable read.”— USA Today “[A] sordid tale… inspired by actual events during a dark period of Danish history. Ah, but there is more, so much more in this frenzied thriller.”— The New York Times Book Review “Adler-Olsen merges story lines...with ingenious aplomb, effortlessly mixing hilarities with horrors...This crime fiction tour de force could only have been devised by an author who can even turn stomach flu into a belly laugh.”— Publishers Weekly (starred review) “This series has enough twists to captivate contemporary mystery readers and enough substance and background to entertain readers with historical and literary tastes.”— Library Journal (starred review) “When your series relies on cold cases, it’s not always easy to craft plots that have both historical interest and an air of urgency, but it’s something Adler-Olsen is very good at.”— Booklist

Praise for The Scarred Woman “Scandinavian crime novels don’t get much darker than Jussi Adler-Olsen’s Department Q police procedurals.”—Marilyn Stasio,  The New York Times Book Review “[S]atisfyingly dark, both in tone and content...an undeniable page-turner.”— Publishers Weekly “[R]iveting...All of the Department Q books contain dark humor, high satire, social commentary—not always politically correct—and grand villains, with The Scarred Woman being no exception.”—BookReporter “[M]esmerizing...The cleverly devised plot paints a fascinating tale of murder and mayhem with a touch of witty and subtle humor.”—Fresh Fiction  “You’ll be desperate to figure out the identity of the scarred woman as the suspense drives toward a deadly and at times comical conclusion.”—Associated Press “The novel is eerily timely...[and] the relationship and banter between Carl and his associate Assad, with Assad's ‘linguistic blunders,’ continue to elicit chuckles. Adler-Olsen is deadly serious, though, and compassionate when it comes to poor, traumatized Rose. She may have emotional scars but her friends have got her back.”— Shelf Awareness “The legions of readers still enjoying the Millennium books will devour this seventh in a series starring the officers of Copenhagen’s cold-case unit, Department Q.”— Booklist “Filled with dark humor and tight plotting....Highly recommended.”—Spinetingler Magazine “Highly recommended as dark literature written with beauty and class.”—The Suspense Is Thrilling Me Blog “[A] superbly constructed multi-layered mystery.”—Murder, Mayhem, and More  Praise for Jussi Adler-Olsen's Department Q series “It can be hard to distinguish Scandinavian crime writers—there are a lot of them, and their names have consonant clusters and umlauts and all that jazz—but Jussi Adler-Olsen is a name to know.
