Four stages of Renaissance style; transformations in art and literature, 1400-1700 by Wylie Sypher( Book )

44 editions published between 1955 and 1987 in 4 languages and held by 1,513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vysoce erudovaný badatel pojal do okruhu svého zkoumání vývoj čtyř historickych fází (renesance, manýrismu, baroka a rokoka), aby v jím určených hranicích ujasnil opomíjenou skutečnost: styčné body mezi literárními a výtvarnymi projevy. Charakteristické pro Sypherovu práci je, že se dobírá nevšedních výsledků analytickým pohledem na konkrétní díla a dovede vyhmátnout příznačné tendence jednotlivých období v obecné ideové rovině i v dílčím věcném vyjádření

Henri Bergson ' Laughter George Meredith ' An Essay on Comedy Introduction & Appendix on The Meanings of Comedy by Wylie Sypher Laughter is a mystery'a mystery which defines man. Brought together in this volume are two classic studies of the nature of laughter and comedy. The great French philosopher Henri Bergson develops, in "Laughter," a profound psychological and philisophic theory of the main springs of comedy'a theory closely related to the doctrine of the elan vital. In his "Essay on Comedy," the English novelist George Meredith discusses the varieties of the comic experience and the social and moral function of comedy. Together these two major theories go far toward clarifying the mystery of laughter. Wylie Sypher, in his richly documented supplementary essay, places the views of Bergson and Meredith in a large context of speculation on the nature of comedy. The essay reviews important statements of such thinkers as Aristotle, Hobbes, Baudelaire, Freud, Cornford, and others. It serves to give further significance to Bergson and Meredith and to the meaning of comedy itself

A partir del siglo XIX, las semejanzas y diferencias de los procedimientos literarios y los técnicos quedaron evidenciadas con claridad, pero también se hizo visible el hiato que los separa y -simultáneamente- permite conciliarlos. Todo ello ha venido a constituir la llamada brecha o conflicto entre literatura y tecnología

The transformations of Godot by Frederick Busi( Book )

2 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Didi, Gogo, Pozzo, Lucky -- the bizarre names stand out strangely against the bare-bones landscape of Waiting for Godot. In an intriguing new study of one of the most haunting plays of this century, Frederick Busi shows that these names serve important dramatic functions, reinforcing the changing roles assumed by the mysterious characters in their tortuous search for -- and avoidance of -- self. Busi also explores Beckett's convoluted literary relationship with James Joyce, especially as revealed in the plays-within-the-play and verbal jigh jinks of Finnegan's Wake, where, as in Godot, the
