Linda Hutcheon, A Theory of Parody, The Teachings of Twentieth-Century Art Forms – Alexandria

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Return to Book Page. A Theory of Parody: In this major study of a flexible and multifaceted mode of expression, Linda Hutcheon looks at works of modern literature, visual art, music, film, theater, and architecture to arrive at a comprehensive assessment of what parody is and what it does. Hutcheon identifies parody as one of the major forms of modern self-reflexivity, one that marks the intersection of invention In this major study of a flexible and multifaceted mode of expression, Linda Hutcheon looks at works of modern literature, visual art, music, film, theater, and architecture to arrive at a comprehensive assessment of what parody is and what it does.

Hutcheon identifies parody as one of the major forms of modern self-reflexivity, one that marks the intersection of invention and critique and offers an important mode of coming to terms with the texts and discourses of the past. She shows how parody, through ironic playing with multiple conventions, combines creative expression with critical commentary.

Its productive-creative approach to tradition results in a modern recoding that establishes difference at the heart of similarity.

In a new introduction, Hutcheon discusses why parody continues to fascinate her and why it is commonly off as suspect-—for being either too ideologically shifty or too much of a threat to the ownership of intellectual and creative property.

The book focuses exclusively on artistic in the broadest sense parody, so I’m going to have to translate Hutcheon’s theores to parodic performance for most of my thesis though as a modern novel there are probably parodic elements in Valencia that I may end up dealing with. Both my friend and I he read one of Hutcheon’s other books agreed that her style is interes This book is more of a formalist work than I’m used to dealing with, but it was very useful in terms of my thinking about parody.

Both my friend and I he read one of Hutcheon’s other books agreed that her style is interesting, but for some reason she takes a long time to read. I think this book went smoother than the one he read, because there is already a body of work dealing with parody against which Hutcheon built her definition, whereas adaptation the subject of the book he read is a much less defined topic. Feb 01, Ruby rated it liked it Shelves: May 04, Debbie Gascoyne rated it really liked it Shelves: It feels kind of silly putting a rating on this, but it’s one nutcheon text that I actually quite enjoyed reading.

Reading it for my diss, and it provided a sensible overview and and some criteria that will be very helpful as I prepare to write my “parody” chapter. Hutcheon is a very paroxy writer, with the humility to present multiple alternate points of view without either slamming them or following them slavishly. May 01, Jeff rated it it was amazing. A great analysis of a central aspect of modern and postmodern art, music, and literature.

A useful volume written partly in reaction to the idea that theory determines what one says about literature. Hutcheon’s revisiting of the genre of parody begins in observations about thfory operation in a host of modern disciplines: She only moves to theorizing once she has established basic parameters of the genre under discussion.

A lot of the book feels as if it is fighting a parodt or front?

A Theory of Parody : Teachings of Twentieth Century Art Forms

Hutcheon’s chief achievemen A useful volume written partly in reaction to the idea that theory determines what one says about literature. Hutcheon’s chief achievement here is to promote a definition of parody derived in part from a neglected part of the term’s etymology from Greek. This definition allows Hutcheon to show not only where parody is normative and builds in common with satire, but, crucially, where it can be revolutionary in diverging from satire.

The move to distinguish parody from satire is the volume’s best argument and naturally Hutcheon takes a fair amount of time over it. It is this distinction that permits Hutcheon to show that not all parody seeks to tear down the previous models it uses; sometimes it revitalizes those previous models without attacking or discarding them. A mostly readable volume, despite the time spent worrying over modern theoretical quibbles. Aug 08, Sandi rated it really liked it.

Hutcheon also tackles satire, irony, and pastiche in defining how parody is a different concept.
