Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1, University of Vienna, language: English, abstract: In this seminar paper I am going to deal with Katherine Anne Porter's short story Old Mortality, which was first published in the Southern Review, in 1937 (Literature Online Biography). Initially, I am going to depict Katherine Anne Porter's life as well as the autobiographical elements which permeate Old Mortality. However, the central focus of this paper lies on the representation of the short story and its main issues like family and home in addition to the portrayal of memory. Furthermore, it provides facts about the socio-cultural and historical background as well as information on narrative technique and cultural signifiers.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Vienna (Institut für Anglistik und Amerikanistik), course: Introductory Seminar Literature (year 2), 32 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The main aim of this paper is to discuss metafiction in J. M. Coetzee's Foe (1986), which is a rewriting of Daniel Defoe's literary classic Robinson Crusoe (1719). I shall deal with the intersection of postcolonialism and postmodernism in Coetzee's works, give (a) brief definition(s) of metafiction and consider the origins of this term and its general functions. I will finally take a rather detailed look at metafiction and the discourse of power in Coetzee's deconstruction of the Crusoe myth.

Tom Clancy brings Jack Ryan's son-Jack Ryan, Jr.-to the forefront in this #1 New York Times bestselling thriller. A man named Mohammed sits in a café in Vienna, about to propose a deal to a Colombian. What if they combined his network of Middle East agents and sympathizers with the Colombian's drug network in America? The potential for profits would be enormous-and the potential for destruction unimaginable. A young man in suburban Maryland who has grown up around intrigue is about to put his skills to the test. Taught the ways of the world firsthand by agents, statesmen, analysts, Secret Servicemen, and black-op specialists, he crosses the radar of 'The Campus'-a secret organization set up to identify local terrorist threats and deal with them by any means necessary. His name: Jack Ryan, Jr.

But in return for the book, they must steal a painting from twenty-first-century Vienna. They'll join a team of dragons, Fae gamblers and thieves, so their greatest challenge may be one another. And some will kill to protect this painting, which hides an extraordinary secret from a past age. PRAISE FOR THE INVISIBLE LIBRARY SERIES I absolutely loved this' N. K.
