Elizabeth I's foreign correspondence : letters, rhetoric, and politics by Carlo M Bajetta( Book )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Elizabeth I's linguistic skills were never in doubt during her lifetime, and she put them to excellent use when she became Queen. Although she never left England, throughout her reign she wrote extensively to correspondents abroad, and her extant foreign correspondence ranges from the ceremonial to the religiously committed to the intimate and emotionally vulnerable. The relationships Elizabeth forged through these texts were of central importance to the diplomacy and politics of the period. This volume presents the findings of a major international research project on the Queen's correspondence, and includes newly edited texts and translations of fifteen of Elizabeth's holograph letters in foreign languages. --Provided by publisher
Two Elizabethan treatises on rhetoric : The foundacion of rhetorike by Richard Reynolds (1563) and A brief discourse on rhetoricke by William Medley (1575) by Guillaume Coatalen( Book )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sixteenth century Elizabethan treatises on rhetoric in the vernacular are relatively rare. Guillaume Coatalen offers annotated editions of Richard Reynolds's 'The Foundacion of Rhetorike' (1563), which has not been edited since the 1945 facsimile edition, and of William Medley's unknown 'Brief Discourse on Rhetoricke' which survives in a single manuscript dated 1575. While Reynolds's work is an English adaptation of Aphthonius's 'Progymnasmata' and a preparation for Thomas Wilson's influential 'Arte of Rhetoricke' (1560), Medley's is broader in scope and contains the only full treatment of periodic prose in English in the period. Both works are essential to understand how Elizabethan rhetoric in the vernacular evolved, in particular in aristocratic circles, and its links with Continental developments, notably German
La stratégie poétique de George Herbert by Guillaume Coatalen( Book )

2 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La thèse propose d'examiner l'ensemble des moyens poétiques, des plus visibles aux plus cachés, mis en œuvre par Herbert en vue d'une fin double, sa propre édification et la louange de Dieu. Le poète a créé une poésie liturgique qui fondait l'Église anglicane. En l'absence d'un système théologique constitué, The Temple (1633) est l'œuvre majeure de la période la plus glorieuse de l'anglicanisme. Herbert a jeté les bases de la confession nationale en forgeant une poésie dont le moindre élément exalte la relation d'un je au divin. Pour ce faire, il s'est évertué à imiter le Christ, conçu comme le premier des poètes, à travers un verbe poétique régénéré. Cette nouvelle rhétorique constitue d'abord un monde qui renvoie dans un même temps au courtisan, premier lecteur de ces poèmes, ainsi qu'aux figures du poète et du Christ. Elle s'attèle ensuite au problème poétique fondamental de l'évocation d'un Dieu à la fois immanent et inaccessible. La métaphore en particulier fera écho au mystère de l'incarnation alors que le style simple reflétera l'humilité du Sauveur
