At war with the word : literary theory and liberal education by R. V Young( Book )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Postmodernism, deconstruction, and the attack on the Western Canon have stirred academic disputes so intensely that they have spilled down from the lofty world of literary criticism into the mass media and popular culture. Even TV situation comedies have made sport of such arcane concepts as the deconstructionist notion that words have no intrinsic meanings outside of a given social or economic context." "Now, literary critic R.V. Young surveys the dominant trends in literary theory of the past thirty years and concludes that the result has been a corruption of the teaching of literature, which is an essential part of a liberal education." "Young views the current controversy as an essentially spiritual conflict that has profound political implications." "At War with the Word seeks to transcend the politicization of literature and calls for a greater recognition of literature's role in developing the intellect and imagination of students."--Jacket

Principles of letter-writing : a bilingual text of Justi Lipsi Epistolica institutio by Justus Lipsius( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As part of the sixteenth century's intellectual "triumvirate," which included Joseph Scaliger and Isaac Casaubon, Justus Lipsius formulated a humanist scholarship aimed ultimately at practical application in both public and personal affairs. Justus Lipsius distinguished himself as a student of the classics, first at the Jesuit college at Cologne and then at the university in Leuven (Louvain). In 1569, soon after completing his studies, he published a precocious volume of Varia Lectiones, a collection of philological observations on classical texts. This initial work had significant and lasting effects on his career, the most immediate being an appointment as Latin secretary to Cardinal Granvelle, chief minister of Philip II in the Low Countries, who took the young man to Rome, where he was introduced to international power politics as well as to the treasures of Italian libraries, including the Vatican's. After two years in Rome, Lipsius began his uneasy roaming, traveling from Vienna to Jena to Cologne, serving in a variety of posts. In 1579, he accepted a position at Leiden University in Holland, where he found a haven from his home province for nearly thirteen years. It was there that he delivered the lectures on letter-writing that later became Epistolica Institutio. In 1591, when Leiden University became too stridently Calvinist for Lipsius, he returned to Leuven as professor of Latin and was once again reconciled with the Catholic Church. There he remained for the rest of his life, resisting numerous appeals from foreign courts and especially from Italian churchmen. As a particularly suitable commentator on the letter, Lipsius, like so many humanist scholars, was a prolific correspondent and published many of his own letters. In the manner typical of his age, he used the published letter as a kind of forerunner to the scholarly article. Yet his chief distinction as an epistolary theorist lies in his view of the letter as a means of personal expression. His purpose was to recover the classical Roman view of the letter as written conversation, a conception lost during the Middle Ages and only imperfectly restored during the earlier Renaissance. Hence, the Epistolica Institutio assumes an important position in the Lipsius canon: as an effort to restore the authentic features of the classical genre, it bespeaks the humanist scholar; in marking out a space for individual self-definition during a period of increasingly powerful and alienating social and religious pressures, it anticipates the ideological preoccupations of the contemporary world
