What to do:Read chapter 9 in Critical Theory Today.Below are a series of questions taken from your textbook that a Post Colonial critic might ask about a text. In response to one of these questions, post a statement about a novel. (Be sure you indicate to which question you are responding and to which book you are referring.) referring to this book: “What lies between us”The following questions are intended to summarize approaches to literaryanalysis employed by new historicists and cultural critics. In the terminologyof cultural criticism, these questions offer us ways to examine the cultural workperformed by literary texts. As you read these questions and imagine the waysin which a new historical or cultural critic might address them, keep in mindthat, for such critics, no historical event, artifact, or ideology can be completelyunderstood in isolation from the innumerable historical events, artifacts, andideologies among which it circulates, and our own cultural experience inevitablyinfluences our perceptions, making true objectivity impossible. For we can usenew historical and cultural criticism properly only if we keep clearly in mindthat our analysis is always incomplete, partial, and our perspective is always sub?jective. We can’t stand outside our own culture and analyze texts from an objec?tive vantage point. We can write only from within our own historical moment.please choose one question and answer it in 300 words. u can use these books: “WHAT LIES BETWEEN US” and ch.9 of “ Critical Theory Today“1. How does the literary text function as part of a continuum with other his?torical and cultural texts from the same period, for example, penal codes,birthing practices, educational priorities, the treatment of children underthe law, other art forms (including popular art forms), attitudes towardsexuality, and the like? That is, taken as part of a “thick description” of agiven culture at a given point in history, what does this literary work add toour tentative understanding of human experience in that particular timeand place, including the ways in which individual identity shapes and isshaped by cultural institutions?2. How can we use a literary work to “map” the interplay of both traditionaland subversive discourses circulating in the culture in which that workemerged and/or the cultures in which the work has been interpreted? Putanother way, how does the text promote ideologies that support and/orundermine the prevailing power structures of the time and place in whichit was written and/or interpreted?3. Using rhetorical analysis (analysis of a text’s purpose and the stylisticmeans by which it tries to achieve that purpose), what does the literary text add to our understanding of the ways in which literary and nonliterarydiscourses (such as political, scientific, economic, and educational theo?ries) have influenced, overlapped with, and competed with one another atspecific historical moments?4. What does the literary work suggest about the experience of groups ofpeople who have been ignored, underrepresented, or misrepresented bytraditional history (for example, laborers, prisoners, women, people ofcolor, lesbians and gay men, children, the insane, and so on)? Keep inmind that new historical and cultural criticism usually include attention tothe intersection of the literary work with nonliterary discourses prevalentin the culture in which the work emerged and/or in the cultures in whichit has been interpreted and often focus on such issues as the circulation ofpower and the dynamics of personal and group identity.5. How has the work’s reception by literary critics and the reading public—including the reception at its point of origin, changing responses to thework overtime, and its possible future relationship with its audience—been shaped by and shaped the culture in which that reception occurred?
