Transcript peasant was central to the literary and folkloric practice and polemic of such key revival writers as W.B. Yeats, John Synge, George Russell, Lady Gregory and Douglas Hyde. PETER W. MACKY, Westminster College, "Social Criticism in C.S. Lewis's That Hideous Strength." C.S. Lewis's novel That Hideous Strength presents a sharp criticism of the modern ideology of Materialism in fantasy form. The heart of his criticism is this: Materialism proclaims that there are no universal values binding on all humankind; thus it leaves the way open for those with power to develop completely dehumanizing institutions to control society for their own ends. Materialists, by their disbelief in values and in Spirit, play right into the hands of destructive spirits. 23 CRITICAL APPROACHES TO SCIENCE FICTION I Allamanda Room CHAIR: Marshall B. Tymn, Eastern Michigan University. THOMAS D. CLARESON, College of Wooster, "What, Then, Is Science Fiction?" Although I do not intend to set up a rigid definition of science fiction, I shall draw upon the materials of Some Kind of Paradise: A History of the American Science Fiction 1870-1930t to be published by Greenwood Press; my introduction to the forthcoming reference work on English language science fiction, fantasy and horror magazines, edited by Marshall B. Tymn and Mike Ashley; and a dialogue with Barry Malzberg at the 1981 MLA meeting in order to look for any changing characteristics which have governed the content, vision, and structural techniques of science fiction. DAVID KETTERER, Concordia University, "Covering A Case of Conscience." An examination of the "Case of Conscience: Correspondence File," which forms part of the Blish Papers in the New Bodleian Library, reveals how Blish extended his 1953 novella into the book of 1958. It would appear from this evidence (and from the two published versions of the story) that Blish does not fully endorse the understanding of the alien Lithians arrived at by his protagonist, Father Ruiz-Sanchez, i.e., the view that they and their planet constitute a Satanic trap. 24 ANIMALS AND ANIMISM AND THE FANTASTIC Room 108 CHAIR: Margaret Simmons, Hampton Institute. MICHELE LANGFORD, Pepperdine University, "Fantastic Animals: The Structure of Dream in Supervielle's Poetry." Animals for Jules Supervielle have a privileged position in the universe, for they are in touch with a primary source of knowledge. In his desire to reach a blessed state, a poetic and fantastic world preceding creation, Supervielle seeks to communicate with animals. To do so, he must invent a new language. But does language emerge from the outer being? Can form that shapes an individual be separated from his speech? Is metamorphosis the key to the secret word, and the vehicle for the fantastic voyage? BRUCE ROSS, State University New York, Buffalo, "Mysteries of the Broad Backed Church: T. S. Eliot's 'The Hippopotamus.'" Most critics of "The Hippopotamus" have taken the poem to represent a satiric, perhaps frivolous, indictment of various shortcomings in man's traditonal religious attitudes and practices that in the poem are embodied in the True Church. The culminating fantasy of the hippopotamus' ascension tends to leaven the poem's cumulative attack upon the True Church's failures. This paper explicates the hippopotamus image in the light of the poem's epigraph to explain why the hippo receives a more favorable treatment than the True Church. JANET GLUCKMAN, Professional Media Services, "The Absurd Theater of War: A Repertory of Scarecrows." Successful presentations of war and revolution have been made by writers who see man as a scarecrow masquerading as a human being. As substantiation, the paper uses, among others, the works of Dickens, de Ghelderode, Grass, Kurt Vonnegut, and Hesse. These writers all found it necessary to use the Theater of the Absurd as their medium. Through the personification of inanimate objects such as the scarecrow, they face the absurdities of war and express the insidious process of dehumanization which makes brutality an acceptable commonplace and catapults man into a state of animalism. 25 THE FANTASTIC IN JEWISH LITERATURE II: THE NINETEENTH AND TWENTIETH CENTURIES Room 110 CHAIR: David Neal Miller, Ohio State University. STEPHEN H. GARRIN, University of Texas, "Der Nister's Unter a Ployt: Affinities with Kafka." In the Field of Yidddish, volume two, Khone Shmeruk examines Der Nister's short work, "Under a Fence." This thorough appraisal omits the Kafkaesque aspects of the story, which are the most blatant. In this paper I will explain the elements of time-word-space in Der Nister's Unter a ployt, as they relate to the parables of Kafka. as well as style Similarities presented. in theme will be DAGMAR C.G. LORENZ, Ohio State University, "Elements of the Fantastic in German Holocaust Literature: 'Gare Maritime' and Use Aichinger's Dolls." (No abstract available.)
