Ovid in English, 1480-1625 by Ovid( )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La quatrième de couverture indique : "This volume brings together a range of celebrated and less familiar translations of Ovid's Metamorphoses produced in English between 1480 and 1625, beginning with the story of Narcissus from Caxton's manuscript translation of the Metamorphoses and ending with George Sandys's version of Callisto's tale. The volume as a whole reflects the complex (and shifting) variety of Ovid's early modern reception. These poems, some of them republished here for the first time, help extend and enrich our understanding of Ovid's influence on early modern literature. All texts have been fully modernised and annotated, rendering them accessible to students and general readers as well as scholars of the period"

Time in the philosophy of Gabriel Marcel by Helen Tattam( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis aims to determine what is distinctive to the philosophy of Gabriel Marcel (1889-1973). While his work has largely been received as a form of 'Christian existentialism' (notably by Jean-Paul Sartre), and thus interpreted in relation to other philosophies of existence, it is my contention that this prevents an appreciation of his specificity. I therefore recommend a new reading of his thought, which, through analysis of his various philosophical presentations of time, re-situates him within the twentieth-century French intellectual tradition. Part I of the thesis provides an introduction to his philosophy of time, analysing his position in specific relation to Henri Bergson (1859-1941). Chapter One raises the question as to whether his position is then compromised by his engagement with eternity, for this seems to undermine time's significance. However, what begins to emerge from Chapter Two onward, is that such a question may be inappropriate with respect to Marcel's understanding of philosophy. Part II (Chapters Three and Four) then explores the implications that his work's various modes have on the content of his arguments: first, the diary-form of his formative works and his (continuing) use of a first-person narrative style in his essays and lectures; and second, the (non-narrative) form of his theatre, to which Marcel also accorded philosophical significance. Here, Marcel is read alongside Paul Ric#x9C;ur (1913-2005) and Emmanuel Lévinas (1906-1995), who also tried to approach philosophy differently #x96; as is especially manifest in their conceptions of time. Finally, Part III (Chapter Five) reconsiders the relation between Marcel's philosophy and religion, asking how his references to God affect the basis of his philosophy, and what this entails for interpreting time in his work. In light of these discussions, the conclusion then reflects on what philosophy is for Marcel, and how he should therefore be received

La devoción de la Cruz by Pedro Calderón de la Barca( )

3 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Una historia de amor imposible amenazada por el peligro de un incesto que no llega a efecto en medio de un intenso ambiente religioso. Tal es, en breve, la trama de La devoción de la cruz, comedia religiosa con ribetes de tragedia que ve la luz en la Primera parte (1636) de Calderón, para lo que revisa un drama de mocedad (La cruz en la sepultura, h. 1623). Así, permite asomarse al taller creativo del poeta, al tiempo que posee extraordinarias cualidades dramáticas y anticipa rasgos constantes {u2014}de orden tanto estructural como temático{u2014} del arte calderoniano. Es por ello que, sin duda, merece formar parte del canon dramático de Calderón. Esta edición ofrece primeramente el texto crítico de la segunda versión junto a un apéndice con los pasajes más significativos de la primera redacción y un atento examen del proceso de reescritura. Asimismo, la introducción atiende a la red de relaciones inter e intratextuales de la pieza, la interpretación del incesto, la cuestión del género dramático y su recepción internacional. -- From publisher's website

Art and its uses in Thomas Mann's Felix Krull by Ernest Schonfield( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 289 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The turn of the twentieth century was a time of identity crisis for the upper and middle classes, one in which increased social mobility caused the blurring of traditional boundaries and created a need for reference works such as the British Who's Who (1897). At the same time, the rise of a new leisure industry and an increase in international travel led to a boom period for confidence men, who frequently operated in hotels and holiday resorts. Thomas Mann's Felix Krull, written between 1910-13 and continued (though never completed) in 1951-54, uses contemporary accounts of these figures as a starting-point from which to explore the aesthetics of society. The early Krull marks an important stage in Mann's development in a number of respects. In writing it, Mann acquired a more flexible conception of identity and a new understanding of the relation between artist and public. Krull also signals a deeper engagement with Goethe and a shift in Mann's work towards a more open treatment of sexuality. The novel presents art as being central to the development of the individual and to social interaction. While Krull is nominally a confidence man, he is more of a performance artist, a purveyor of beauty who relies upon the complicity of his audience. The later Krull takes up where Mann left off and continues the justification of art as an essential human activity. This study draws upon unpublished material in order to provide a comprehensive reading of Felix Krull. It examines the novel within the context of Mann's work as a whole, and, in doing so, it seeks to demonstrate the remarkable continuity of Mann's creative achievement
