The Librarian's Reading & Research Review April Ambivalence by rhondakwrites

 

On ambivalence: The problems and pleasures of having it both ways (Weisbrode, 2012).

"A concise guide to ambivalence, from Adam and Eve (to eat the apple or not?) to Hamlet (to be or not?) to globalization (e pluribus unum or not?) (MIT Press, 2021). 

 

Alchemical mercury: A theory of ambivalence (Pinkus, 2020).

"Alchemical Mercury moves from antiquity, through the golden age of alchemy in the Dutch seventeenth century, to conceptual art, to alternative fuels, stopping to think with writers such as Dante, Goethe, Hoffmann, the Grimm Brothers, George Eliot, and Marx. Eclectic and wide-ranging, this is the first study to consider alchemy in relation to literary and visual theory in a comprehensive way" (Stanford University Press, 2021).

 

Mad mothers, bad mothers, and what a “good” mother would do: The ethics of ambivalence (LaChance, 2014). 

"Maternal love is a complex emotion rich with contradictory impulses and desires" (Columbia University, 2021). 

 

The postcolonial Arabic novel: Debating ambivalence (Mūsawī, 2003).

"What is noteworthy in al-Musawi’s study (The postcolonial Arabic novel : Debating ambivalence) is that it audaciously brings the study of Arabic literature into the full light of contemporary Western studies on theories of literature"  (Abdel-Malek, 2004). 

 

Victorian ambivalence about Queen Elizabeth I The political history of a royal reputation (Potter, 2010).

"...a study of how women regarded powerful females..."

 

Disorientation France, Vietnam, and the ambivalence of interculturality (Britto, 2004). 

"How can identity be thought and represented outside of the oppositional categories that divide cultures, histories, languages and races?"
