Moriae encomium, or, The praise of folly by Desiderius Erasmus( Book )

1 edition published in 1953 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In writing Encomium Moriae, Erasmus wrote a satire. This satire takes the form of an oration by the goddess Folly, who is represented as declaiming from a pulpit upon the delights which await those who follow in her path. No class in the Renaissance world is spared in her harangue: kings, courtiers, authors, scholars, priests, and bishops -- all conditions of men feel the lash of her tongue. This was the Erasmian way of showing the world how it could "set itself free from its own ignorance."--Heritage Club Sandglass no. X:17
Language culture type : international type design in the age of Unicode by John D Berry( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 199 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Language Culture Type grew out of the first international type-design competition, the 2001 bukva:raz!, whose goal was to promote global cultural pluralism, interaction, and diversity in typographic communications as part of the United Nations Year of Dialog among Civilizations. The book lavishly presents the winning entries, along with information about each typeface, its language, and its designer. A series of essays gives context for the interplay of types and languages in the world today including the attempt to mesh all existing scripts into a single digital encoding system called Unicode. It also delves into the specific issues around developing typefaces for the many linguistic cultures in the world, from the various Cyrillic letterforms to Vietnams ancient ideographic script

Prometheus bound by Aeschylus( Book )

3 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the most ambitious dramatic poems ever written, Percy Bysshe Shelley's Prometheus Unbound tells the story of the Titan Prometheus who gave mankind the secret of fire in open defiance to the decrees of Zeus, and who, as punishment for this generosity, was chained to the Caucasus Mountains and exposed to horrible tortures. Inspired by the Prometheus Bound of Aeschylus, Shelley's play serves as a sort of sequel, matching its Greek predecessor in stature and pure poetic power. It depicts its philanthropist hero's ultimate triumph over the superstition and bigotry of the gods. As Shelley himself stated in his Defence of Poetry, Prometheus Unbound awakens and enlarges the mind. - Amazon
The black tulip by Alexandre Dumas( Book )

1 edition published in 1951 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: Cornelius von Baerle lives only to cultivate the elusive black tulip and win a magnificent prize for its creation. But when his powerful godfather is assassinated, the unwitting Cornelius becomes caught up in a deadly political intrigue. Falsely accused of high treason by a bitter rival, Cornelius is condemned to life in prison. His only comfort is Rosa, the jailer's beautiful daughter, who helps him concoct a plan to grow the black tulip in secret. As Robin Buss explains in his informative introduction, Dumas infuses his story with elements from the history of the Dutch Republic (including two brutal murders) and Holland's seventeenth-century "tulipmania" phenomenon

The greatest of the heroic epics to emerge from medieval Germany, the Nibelungenlied is a revenge saga of sweeping dimensions.

Driven by the conflict between Kriemhilt, the innocent maiden turned she-devil, and her antagonist, the stoic, indomitable Hagen, the story is one of love, jealousy, murder, and revenge, ending in slaughter on a horrific scale. - Amazon

The chronicle of the Cid by Robert Southey( Book )

2 editions published between 1883 and 1958 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The heroic story of the King Arthur, or the Roland, of the Spaniards, less mythical but no less interesting. Robert Southey's "Chronicle of the Cid" is all translation from the Spanish, but is not translation from a single book. Its groundwork is that part of the Cronica General de Espana, the most ancient of the Prose Chronicles of Spain, in which adventures of the Cid are fully told. This old Chronicle was compiled in the reign of Alfonso the Wise, who was learned in the exact science of his time, and also a troubadour. Alfonso reigned between the years 1252 and 1284, and the Chronicle was written by the King himself, or under his immediate direction. [Publit]
