Writing Emotions

Theoretical Concepts and Selected Case Studies in Literature

After a long period of neglect, emotions have become an important topic within literary studies. This collection of essays stresses the complex link between aesthetic and non-aesthetic emotional components and discusses emotional patterns by focusing on the practice of writing as well as on the impact of such patterns on receptive processes. Readers interested in the topic will be presented with a concept of aesthetic emotions as formative both within the writing and the reading process. Essays, ranging in focus from the beginning of modern drama to digital formats and theoretical questions, examine examples from English, German, French, Russian and American literature. Contributors include Angela Locatelli, Vera Nünning, and Gesine Lenore Schiewer.

... with the editors

1. Why a book on this subject?

The proposed focus on the interconnections between writing and emotion is a new approach to a currently very relevant topic. From neuroscience to art history, the studies of emotions have elaborated many new insights during the last decade. It is an opportune and productive moment to bring these discourses up for discussion within the field of literary studies and its interdisciplinary challenges.

2. What relevance does this subject have in the current research debates?

The subject of emotion allows for analyzing literature from a perspective that takes into consideration questions of life, media, body and mind by linking these aspects to aesthetic concepts and critical discourses.

Dealing with emotions allows one to see literature as a practice while at the same time dealing with emotions in literature helps to understand human emotions.

3. What new perspectives does your book open up?

Until now the complex of emotion and literature has been mostly observed by analyzing receptive effects or rhetorical and semantic tools applied in the text. In addition to this approach, the book stresses the importance of emotions within the whole process of writing with its productive structural and receptive dimensions.

4. Who would you preferably like to discuss your book with?

Scholars, students and readers interested in new approaches to literature.

5. Your book in only one sentence:

An innovative discussion on the relation of literature and emotion with a special focus on the practice of writing.
