The Waldensian dissent : persecution and survival, c. 1170-c. 1570 by Gabriel Audisio( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Poor of Lyons, whom their detractors called 'Waldensians' - after the name of their founder Waldo (or Vaudès) - first emerged around 1170 and formed in common with other groups of the period a sect which embraced evangelism, prophecy and poverty. By challenging their prohibition by the lay clergy, and by following the Scripture to the last letter, they suffered excommunication and were condemned as heretics. Forced underground and dispersed widely, they nevertheless managed to maintain contact across Europe, through an established network of itinerant preachers, in Provence and Dauphiné, Calabria and Piedmont, Austria and Bohemia, Pomerania, Brandenburg, Silesia and beyond. The Poor of Lyons constituted the only medieval heresy to have survived to the dawn of the so-called 'modern' period. Their tale of simple devotion mixed with a fierce tenacity serves to illuminate aspects of religious belief that have persisted to the present day. This book was first published in 1999

Ford Madox Ford, France and Provence( Book )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The controversial British writer Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) is increasingly recognized as a major presence in early twentieth-century literature. This series of International Ford Madox Ford Studies was founded to reflect the recent resurgence of interest in him. Each volume is based upon a particular theme or issue; and relates aspects of Ford's work, life, and contacts, to broader concerns of his time. Ford is best-known for his fiction, especially The Good Soldier, long considered a modernist masterpiece; and Parade's End, which Anthony Burgess described as 'the finest novel about the First World War'; and Samuel Hynes has called 'the greatest war novel ever written by an Englishman'. After the war Ford moved to France, beginning Parade's End on the Riviera, founding the transatlantic review in Paris, taking on Hemingway as a sub-editor, discovering another generation of Modernists such as Jean Rhys and Basil Bunting, and publishing them alongside James Joyce and Gertrude Stein. From the late 1920s he spent more time in his beloved Provence, where he took a house with the painter Janice Biala. The present volume, combining contributions from eighteen British, French and American experts on Ford, and Modernism, has two connected sections. The first, on Ford's engagement with France and French culture, is introduced by an essay by Ford himself, written in French, about France, and republished and also translated here for the first time; and includes an essay on literary Paris of the 1920s by the leading biographer Hermione Lee. The second, on Ford and Provence, is introduced in an essay by the novelist Julian Barnes, and includes a selection of previously unpublished letters from Janice Biala about her life with Ford in Provence. The volume also contains 16 pages of illustrations, including previously unseen photographs of Ford and Biala, and reproductions of Biala's paintings and drawings of Provence."--Publisher's website

Ford Madox Ford's Cosmopolis : psycho-geography, Flânerie and the cultures of Paris( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The controversial British writer Ford Madox Ford (1873-1939) is increasingly recognized as a major presence in early twentieth-century literature. This series of International Ford Madox Ford Studies was founded to reflect the recent resurgence of interest in him. Each volume is based upon a particular theme, issue, or work; and relates aspects of Ford's writing, life, and contacts, to broader concerns of his time. Ford is best-known for his fiction, especially 'The Good Soldier', long considered a modernist masterpiece; and 'Parade's End', which Anthony Burgess described as "the finest novel about the First World War", Samuel Hynes has called "the greatest war novel ever written by an Englishman", and which was adapted by Tom Stoppard for the acclaimed 2012 BBC/HBO television series, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Rebecca Hall. The twelve essays in this volume, 'Ford Madox Ford's Cosmopolis', focus directly on the internationalism so important to Ford, and bring out three main ideas. First, his lifelong commitment to an international vision of literature and culture. Second, 'Cosmopolis' also refers to Ford's experiences of the particular cosmopolitan cities he lived in: London, Paris, New York. Third, the idea that his lifelong experience of Paris in particular informed and shaped his writing. Ford's Cosmopolis is thus not only an ideal city or state open to such cosmopolitan exchange. It is also a mode of writing which invents forms and styles to render the experience of such hybridity, diversity, fluidity, and tolerance

Provence and the British imagination by Nathalie Vanfasse( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although it resonates today with lavender fields, sunny heritage locations and the gentrified memory of Paul Cézanne's pictorial turbulence, Provence has not always been the attractive territory of pacified leisure and festival culture. Since the seventeenth century, indeed, the region has inscribed its shifting geography, complex politics and the extraordinary diversity of its land and seascapes in the perception and imagination of British visitors. In the steps of anonymous or excellent travellers, the chapters of this volume chart some of the most significant moments in the intercultural transactions between the proud linguistic and literary distinctiveness of the province on one hand and the always challenged and sometimes baffled perception of Anglophone (and Anglophile) visitors on the other. Spanning across two centuries, from the largely unknown pre-revolutionary Provence visited by John locke and Tobias Smollett through the Victorian paradise of popular tourism and finally to the more secret 'homeland' of Modernists, this volume reveals an unexpected Provence which, in oblique and complex ways, has long held a mirror to British culture and often acted as the laboratory of its artistic life

Translation as collaboration : Virginia Woolf, Katherine Mansfield and S.S. Koteliansky by Claire Davison( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first book-length study of the poetics of co-translation in the context of British and European modernismThis study focuses on the considerable but neglected body of works translated by S. S. Koteliansky in collaboration with Virginia Woolf and Katherine Mansfield. It provides close-readings and broad cross-cultural contextualisations to assess the influence that translating from Russian had on the individual writers, as well as its resonance within the dynamics of modernist writing. Claire Davison shows that, read as an oeuvre, their various co-translations shed light on how their own creative vision was evolving, particularly through explorations of voice, consciousness, gender and polyidentity. And their co-translating ventures enriched their responses to the great classics but also invited innovative dialogues with other genres: critical essays, biography and early-twentieth-century writing from Russia. The focus here is on co-translation as praxis. Looking specifically at the immediate post-revolutionary and post-war years, when political, ideological and aesthetic interests were so intertwined, the book examines the cultural and historical dynamics of translation, which reveal a clear interface between literary creation, textual production, publishing networks and the literary translator. Key Features:</h4>The first in-depth study of the impact that translating from the Russian had on these individual writers as well as on the shaping of modernist poetics in general *Feeds into a recent renewal of interest in the intense era of Russian fever in the early 20th century *Focuses on the processes of translating including negotiations with style, voice, and textual rhythm

Globalising Goa (1660-1820) : change and exchange in a former capital of empire by Ernestine Carreira( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on more than twenty years of study and scholarship, *Globalising Goa* offers a wide-ranging account of the place Goa occupied both in India and the world beyond, before the advent of the British Raj. It was the capital of a European maritime empire that teetered on the brink of collapse in the tumultuous seventeenth century, only to become a thriving cultural, religious and diplomatic hub in the eighteenth century, building close relations with the foremost continental empires of the day -- Mughal, Maratha and Mysore. The globalisation of trade in the eighteenth century restored its former Atlantic ties via Brazil and the development of the African slave trade, while also opening the doors to the Orient, via China and the opium markets. Within a century, however, it was but a modest outpost of bustling Bombay. Today, Goa is being rediscovered by the West. As a far-flung capital where two worlds and two cultures overlapped, it appealed hugely to the European popular imagination in the early Modern Era, inspiring a wealth of travel journals. After falling into oblivion for two centuries, such narratives are now being reassessed as inventive forms in a Western literary tradition which yearned to relive exotic history by proxy or to understand the expansionist appetites of the past.--
