The Fictional Autobiography: The Art of Non - Fiction in Moll Flanders = Kurgusal Otobiyografi: Moll Flanders'ta Kurgu-D l n Sanat
Kieran MORE
Dogus University Journal , 2000,
Abstract: This article deals with how Daniel Defoe, the pioneering 18th century novelist, used the emerging genre of autobiography as a socially acceptable springboard for his novel Moll Flanders. At this stage the novel was in its infancy and lacked social and literary credibility. Therefore, Defoe used the form and structure of autobiography as a basis for his fiction, while he also raised issues critical to autobiography, such as questions of objectivity and self-knowledge. In my article I first discuss the emergence of the autobiographical genre, and then examine the text of his novel Moll Flanders revealing how Defoe uses the genre to create a complex and ambiguous psychological profile of Moll, while simultaneously raising issues of self-knowledge and objectivity central to the consideration of autobiography.
La textura picaresca y meta-picaresca en Moll Flanders de Daniel Defoe Picaresque and Meta-Picaresque Traits inDaniel Defoe's Moll Flanders

Revista Signos , 2003,
Abstract: En su novela Moll Flanders de 1722, el autor inglés Daniel Defoe elabora un espacio narrativo caracterizado por su propia impostura y la de la protagonista. Mientras el autor transforma deliberadamente su dimensión de autor en la de editor, Moll experimenta mutaciones físicas, sociales y morales en un contexto episódico que revela tanto la picardía del personaje como la de su creador. Ambos procesos están caracterizados por la simulación, uno de los rasgos esenciales al momento de evaluar la textura picaresca de la obra. In Daniel Defoe's 1722 Moll Flanders it is possible to appreciate how the author constructs a narrative context that features his own imposture and that of his protagonist. While the author deliberately transforms his authorial dimension into an editorial one, Moll experiences physical, social, and moral mutations within the episodic progression of the events which conveniently exposes the picaresque traits of both author and character. Both processes are geared by the act of simulation, a key element at the moment of assessing the picaresque texture of the work.

A Deconstructive Reading of Samuel Beckett’s The Unnamable: The Threshold of Language Limits  [cached]

Studies in Literature and Language , 2012, DOI: 10.3968/j.sll.1923156320120501.1958
Abstract: This study examines one of Samuel Beckett’s enigmatic fictions, The Unnamable, in the light of deconstructive reading. Based on the close study of deconstruction and Derrida’s works, the main concern of the discussion concentrates on those paradoxical aspects of language and especially literary language that profoundly affect the act of literary reading. Deconstructive reading of a literary text is a matter of entering into the play of contradiction, multiple references, and the ceaseless questioning of conclusions and responses. This article asks how the literary text, through deconstructive study of its oppositions, can be against itself and stand at the threshold of coming new meanings and interpretations. Then, it is not so difficult to see how this approach might be related to Beckett’s The Unnamable, which like Derrida’s deconstruction is deeply concerned with the problem of “aporia”, deeply interested in the play of language, the deferral of meaning and the rejection of any system of classifi cation that is grounded in subject-object relations, and at the end a reading that is itself unnamable. Key words: Transcendental signified; Differance; Aporia; Representation; Poststructuralism; Structuralism; Metaphysics of presence
Lectura deconstructiva del "Poema 6" de Pablo Neruda y su crítica literaria A deconstructive reading of Pablo Neruda's "Poem 6" and his literary criticism  [cached]

Estudios filológicos , 2002,
Abstract: El presente trabajo realiza una lectura deconstructiva del "Poema 6" de Pablo Neruda y de su crítica literaria interpretativa para revelar la metafísica de la presencia en ambos textos. The present study shows a deconstructive reading of Pablo Neruda's "Poem 6" and his interpretative literary criticism in order to reveal the metaphysics of the presence in both texts.
Stephan’s Brave New World: A Deconstructive Reading on James Joyce’s A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man
Ruzbeh Babaee,Iraj Montashery
Studies in Literature and Language , 2011, DOI: 10.3968/2172
Abstract: A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1914) is considered to be one of the major examples of the genre bildungsroman (the novel of the artist). This study concerns the search of the protagonist, Stephen Dedalus, for identity and meaning, which encompass a time period from his infancy to his late adolescence. In quest of identity and meaning, Stephen breaks from two totalities- nationalism and Catholic Church- that rule over his life. The present study reads the novel within a deconstructive perspective. Stephen like Nietzsche wants to talk about “the death of god” to pave the way for his exploration of meaning and identity. He tends to rebel and go beyond what Lyotard calls “the grand narrative”. Key words: Deconstruction; Metanarrative; Nationalism; Catholic Church; Simulation
The Ratio Monotonicity of the Boros-Moll Polynomials  [PDF]

Mathematics , 2008, DOI: 10.1090/S0025-5718-09-02223-6
Abstract: In their study of a quartic integral, Boros and Moll discovered a special class of Jacobi polynomials, which we call the Boros-Moll polynomials. Kauers and Paule proved the conjecture of Moll that these polynomials are log-concave. In this paper, we show that the Boros-Moll polynomials possess the ratio monotone property which implies the log-concavity and the spiral property. We conclude with a conjecture which is stronger than Moll's conjecture on the $\infty$-log-concavity.
Alcover, Moll i la llengua alemanya [Alcover, Moll and the German language]
Casadesús Bordoy, Alejandro
Zeitschrift für Katalanistik , 2007,
Abstract: This article presents two key figures of Catalan philology in a multiple perspective: Father Alcover and Francesc de B. Moll are tightly associated with the Catalan language, but one should bear in mind that they were also interested in the German language. Alcover learned German in order to communicate more fluently with the German-speaking Romanists of his time. He not only made Moll understand that he would need a knowledge of German for his philological career but also taught him German himself. Moll thus attained a good level of German, which allowed him to teach this language in high-school and to publish a learners' grammar of German. The present paper focuses on the relation of these two eminent scholars with the German tongue. Their language-acquisition process and a closer look at the German grammars authored by Moll are object of the study, which intends to add some detail on a not too well known facet of these two Majorcan philologists.
On the Combinatorics of the Boros-Moll Polynomials  [PDF]

Mathematics , 2008,
Abstract: The Boros-Moll polynomials arise in the evaluation of a quartic integral. The original double summation formula does not imply the fact that the coefficients of these polynomials are positive. Boros and Moll proved the positivity by using Ramanujan's Master Theorem to reduce the double sum to a single sum. Based on the structure of reluctant functions introduced by Mullin and Rota along with an extension of Foata's bijection between Meixner endofunctions and bi-colored permutations, we find a combinatorial proof of the positivity. In fact, from our combinatorial argument one sees that it is essentially the binomial theorem that makes it possible to reduce the double sum to a single sum.
A Proof of Moll's Minimum Conjecture  [PDF]
William Y. C. Chen,Ernest X. W. Xia
Mathematics , 2009,
Abstract: Let $d_i(m)$ denote the coefficients of the Boros-Moll polynomials. Moll's minimum conjecture states that the sequence $\{i(i+1)(d_i^2(m)-d_{i-1}(m)d_{i+1}(m))\}_{1\leq i \leq m}$ attains its minimum with $i=m$. This conjecture is a stronger than the log-concavity conjecture proved by Kausers and Paule. We give a proof of Moll's conjecture by utilizing the spiral property of the sequence $\{d_i(m)\}_{0\leq i \leq m}$, and the log-concavity of the sequence $\{i!d_i(m)\}_{0\leq i \leq m}$.
