Críticas:

"In taking on vulgarity, profanity, and obscenity in US and international news media, Lasky looks at the use of asterisks, ampersands, and exclamation marks to mask curse words. He also notes the migration of the asterisk in newspapers from curse words to become the equivalent of journalistic footnotes, e.g., in describing the "stain" on Monica Lewinsky's dress... Summing Up: Highly recommended. Comprehensive collections in journalism and literary criticism supporting graduate study and research." --R. A. Logan, Choice "This is a very discursive volume, almost more like an enlightened and erudite discussion, from a man who has observed (and clipped!) the press for decades." --Chris Sterling, editor Communication Booknotes Quarterly

Reseña del editor:

Lasky's text documents the possibly terminal crisis affecting honest, thoughtful and independent journalism in the Western world. It extends the research in his first volume, and deepens the interpretation. It also seeks to add the personal touch of both wit and anecdote expressed by an experienced international journalist and historian. The central chapters on the "F-word" carry the public emergence of the infamous "expletive deleted" beyond the conventional lexicographer's approach. Here is the tortuous struggle of a once Puritanized literary culture writing to break free of censorship and self-censorship. Lasky critically evaluates the historic effort of the avant-garde of "dirty realism" to find a path towards what he calls "a usable profanity". In the meantime, newspaper style books become comic texts, as asterisks take over from square brackets and millions of readers purse their lips and indulge in "participatory obscenity". In dealing with the phenomenon of profanity, the volume adds another dimension to Lasky's thesis on mass culture's trivialization of real social and political phenomena.

Descripción Taylor Francis Inc, United Kingdom, 2005. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 236 x 160 mm. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. This is the second volume of Melvin J. Lasky s The Language of Journalism series, praised as a brilliant and original study in communications and contemporary language, and as a joy to read. When it was first published, it broke ground in focusing on the comparative styles and prejudices of mainstream American and British newspapers, and in its trenchant analysis of their systematic debasement of language in the face of obligatory platitudes and compulsory euphemisms. Lasky documents the growing crisis affecting honest, thoughtful, and independent journalism in the Western world. He extends the scope of his first volume in the trilogy and deepens the interpretation. He also adds a personal touch of wit and anecdote, as one might expect from an experienced international journalist and historian. Lasky s examination of the use of formerly forbidden language is a triumph of sinuous semantics. In his incisive analysis, we see the tortuous struggle of a once Puritanized literary culture writhing to break free of censorship and self-censorship.This volume on the phenomenon of profanity adds another dimension to Lasky s thesis on mass culture s trivialization of real social and political phenomena. It also underscores our society s embrace of banality, in standardizing politically correct jargon and slang. Readers of the first volume will find here a new range of references to illuminate the detail of what our newspapers have been publishing. Nº de ref. de la librería BTE9780765802200
