[Dystopian Domination] Day 6: Jesse Karp Guest Post + Giveaway!

It's the sixth day of Dystopian Domination and the event is in full swing! Today, we have an Elevensies debut author on our blog, Jeff Hirsch, and talks about the rise of the dystopian genre.


Join me in welcoming Jesse on Amaterasu Reads!

-----

Was Star Trek the last optimistic view of the future that really captured the popular imagination? Certainly, it’s the only one that’s really still with us. I think that says something integral about our shift into the darker, more disturbing world of dystopian fiction.

Once upon a time, we as a culture tended to see the future as a great expansion out into space, growing ever upwards into a limitless expanse of stars that was a reflection of our potential. Our science and technology, our popular imagination was very much directed to the pursuit of space travel. That future we once saw for ourselves has, in fact, played out in almost exactly the opposite direction. Instead of expanding outwards, we have moved inwards, exploring the innerspace of computers and the Internet. We have gone from seeing what technology can do for us as an entire species (help us grow and survive) to what technology can do for us individually (propagate our personalities and opinions – much as I’m doing right now).

Published March 21, 2011 by Harcourt
It didn’t help that, as this technology was evolving, our faith in our leadership, and democracy itself, took a nosedive (thanks, Richard Nixon and Vietnam). As our view of the present became darker, how could our view of the future go a different way? I’m speaking from a very United States-centric point of view, but that’s where most of our dystopian fiction is coming from, after all. Among its many exports, the U.S. has always excelled most at propagating our own culture.

At any rate, this more internal view of the future lends itself to narratives that tend to focus on the cracks and seams in our society. Given that those cracks and seams are so much more apparent to us now then they ever have been before (thanks, ubiquitous media coverage), it becomes all the easier to imagine that we might be headed into trouble. That’s what I’ve been mulling over and that’s what I wrote about in Those That Wake.

On the bright side, something else you might have noticed about all this dystopian fiction is that the characters at the centers of the stories don’t tend to be bureaucrats or dictators or torturers. The protagonists are teens fighting these soul-crushing systems, looking for a way out of the seams and cracks. This points to something very promising in us that has always come out in our stories: no matter how bad things get, not matter how dark things look, we are always capable of using our hope to fight back.

Jesse Karp is the author of the YA novel Those That Wake and its forthcoming sequel. He is a school librarian at LREI in New York City, where he lives with his wife and two daughters.

  1. Great post. I'm not really old enough to compare what people thought of the future in the past to what we think today (I *think* that sentence makes sense), but nowadays we do seem to have a pretty bleak outlook. There is a lot of negative feeling but I guess that's better than being completely oblivious. Thanks for the giveaway.

  23. El Shaarawy out for 10 weeks after surgery

    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported,Milan have confirmed Stephan El Shaarawy faces up to 10 weeks out after undergoing surgery on his right foot.
    The 21-year-old has endured a tough season so far due to numerous injury problems and has been restricted to just four Serie A appearances.
    A fractured right metatarsal had kept him out of action for two months already and after the issue failed to heal properly, Milan opted to send the Italy international to have surgery.
    Milan, like El Shaarawy, are having a season to forget as they sit in 13th place with only four wins from 17 Serie A matches and they look set to be without the attacker until mid-March.
    The injury also puts the player’s FIFA World Cup participation in jeopardy should he not return on schedule, although coach Cesare Prandelli has previously revealed physical tests in April will determine who is in contention.as reported by Indo Eleven.
    He said: “The most important thing will be in April when I’ll call 33-35 players in for physical tests. From that group we’ll pick the final 23 for Brazil, because this World Cup is going to take up a lot of energy.

  24. Frustrated Allardyce bemoans defensive lapses

    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported,Sam Allardyce expressed frustration after seeing his West Ham side twice throw away winning positions in Saturday’s 3-3 draw with West Brom.
    Allardyce’s men went ahead inside the first four minutes at Upton Park thanks a Joe Cole strike, only for West Brom striker Nicolas Anelka to turn things around with a first-half double.
    West Ham recovered excellently in the second half and appeared to be on their way to victory as goals from Modibo Maiga and Kevin Nolan put them back in front.
    However, the hosts could not hang on, with Saido Berahino’s 69th minute strike ensuring a point for Keith Downing’s men, leaving Allardyce – who saw defender James Tomkins limp off after less than 10 minutes – to bemoan West Ham’s failure to maintain a lead.
    “The game was very frustrating,” Allardyce told BBC Sport. “There is a reason why that happened, none of our centre-backs are fit.as reported by Indo Eleven
    “Losing James Tomkins was a big blow for us. Our coping mechanism was playing four full-backs across the back four. That has cost us three points.

  25. Injured Rooney tipped to face Tottenham

    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported,Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney is expected to recover from a groin strain in time to face Tottenham on New Year’s Day.
    Rooney missed Saturday’s trip to Norwich City after suffering a recurrence of the groin problem that saw him sit out the League Cup quarter-final against Stoke City earlier this month.
    But the Premier League champions are confident that the 28-year-old will be in contention to make an immediate return when Tottenham head north to Old Trafford on Wednesday.
    “Wayne Rooney didn’t travel to Norwich due to the recurrence of a groin strain. He should be available for #mufc vs @SpursOfficial on 1 Jan,” confirmed United via the club’s official Twitter account.
    Rooney, on target in the 3-2 win at Hull City on Boxing Day, is United’s top scorer this season with 11 goals in all competitions.as reported by Indo Eleven.
    Manager David Moyes will be desperate to have Rooney at his disposal against Tottenham as he is already without the services of striker Robin van Persie, who is expected to return next month from a thigh problem.

    Balotelli has previously been linked with a move back to England, with Chelsea thought to be among his suitors.
    But the Serie A club have strongly denied claims he will be sold and insist there are no plans to allow Balotelli to leave.
    A statement on the club’s official website read: “AC Milan denies absolutely and vehemently the statements that have been attributed to the president of Milan about a possible placement of Mario Balotelli on the market.”as reported by Indo Eleven.
    The Italy international joined Milan in last January’s transfer window, bringing an end to a three-year stay at the Etihad Stadium.

  30. Aspas Masih Jadi Target Valencia

    Berita terbaru dan terkini dari
    agen bola City Holiday - Valencia dikabarkan menyiapkan tawaran resmi untuk meminjam striker Liverpool Iago Aspas hingga akhir musim ini.
    Berita yang diringkas agen bola City Holiday, Aspas sebenarnya baru bergabung ke Anfield dari Celta Vigo pada musim panas lalu. Ketika bermain di Primera Liga Spanyol, ia tampil gemilang dengan mencetak 12 gol dari 34 pertandingan pada musim lalu.
    Kegemilangan itu justru tidak berlanjut di Liga Primer. Selain keterbatasan peluang masuk ke dalam skuat inti karena kalah bersaing dengan Luis Suarez dan Daniel Sturridge, pemain berusia 26 tahun itu juga gagal mencetak satu pun gol.
    Aspas disebut-sebut memiliki keinginan besar untuk meninggalkan Anfield agar ia mendapat kesempatan banyak bermain.
    Presiden Valencia Juan Antonio Pizzi menyebut Aspas sebagai pemain yang akan meningkat permainanya di paruh musim kedua. Untuk itu, pihaknya masih menjadikan sang striker sebagai target utama peminjaman.

  36. Liverpool’s manager happy with Coutinho’s improvement



    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported, Brendan Rodgers, a manager of Liverpool, has paid tribute to Philippe Coutinho as wonderful talent, while his side will trip to Arsenal on Sunday.

    Midfielder Philippe Coutinho, 21, who joined the Liverpool from Inter in January 2013, has recently become as the main player in the club after his good improvement in the match.
    Rodgers paid just £8.5million to recruit the Brazilian from Serie A - a fee he believes represents a "snip", as reported by Agen Judi terpercaya indo11.com.
    "He's an absolutely wonderful talent. There are very few players at this level now that penetrate with a pass, that play through teams, and he puts teams on the back foot all the time," the manager said.
    "He doesn't always get there. But the quality of his passing and the weight of his passes is sensational, and he's a good guy as well."
    "His talent is remarkable. Every single day he does something that makes me think 'Wow, what a talent'," he added.

    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported, Enrique Cerezo, a president of Atletico Madrid, is hoping that striker Diego Costa will remain with the club longer to cement his place in Spain's squad.
    The 25-year-old, who has been the reported interest of several club sides including Premier League outfit Chelsea, featured for the 2014 FIFA World Cup hosts in two friendly fixtures, but was granted permission to switch allegiance as he has not featured in a competitive fixture for Brazil.

    "I don't think Diego Costa is going to leave Atletico next year. Undoubtedly we do not want to use any player as an exchange for money," the president said.
    "You can appreciate this because we never sell but other teams come for our players. Diego wants to play for the Spanish national team and it has been an important decision (for him)."
    He added, "He likes Spain, he lives here and he considers it a better option to be part of the current world champions, so if he does play he will do great. I trust the Spanish team will gain a lot with his inclusion."

  40. Benitez unhappy after Napoli’s draw


    Agen Bola terpercaya indo11.com reported, Rafael Benitez, a coach of Napoli, has revealed that he is not happy with his side’s performance after a 1-1 draw at home to Genoa on Monday night.
    Napoli dominated the first half at the San Paolo and went in a goal to the good at the break thanks to a sublime finish from Gonzalo Higuain.
    But they could stop the opponent to score, as reported by Agen Judi terpercaya indo11.com.

    "We should have scored two or three more goals in the first half, which was really so positive. Now we must understand that we need to kill games like this as soon as possible," the manager said.
    "The team is fine and the season is good, even if we're lacking something when it comes to seeing out games. There are still many games to play, but we can do what we did today, which is get close to the goal and then mess up the key play."

    "Even though Genoa did not create much in the second half, we were not in control of the game. Had we played as we had in the first half, we would not have had any problems," he added.

    Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani are the likes from Chelsea, however, due to Paris Saint-Germain's financial muscle, both players are unlikely to move anywhere.
    Ibrahimovic and Cavani have excelled for PSG in Ligue 1 this campaign, with the former topping the goalscoring charts on 22 league goals, while the latter has netted 13 in his debut season at the club, as reported by Agen Judi terpercaya indo11.com.
    "Ibrahimovic? It's impossible. He's happy in Paris. I know because we're in contact, we're friends," Mourinho said.
    "With their financial potential, I don't think Paris will ever open the door for him to leave. Cavani is a very good player. But Paris paid a lot of money for him and he has an amazing contract."
    He added, "Maybe it's not impossible like Zlatan, because I think that Zlatan is more important to the structure of the club. But I think that it's also difficult."
