Representations of the self from the Renaissance to Romanticism( Book )

Les confessions by Jean-Jacques Rousseau( Book )

5 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and held by 374 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In his Confessions, Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-78) tells the story of his life, from the formative experiences of his humble childhood in Geneva, through the achievement of international fame as novelist and philosopher in Paris, to his wanderings as an exile, persecuted by governments and alienated from the modern world. In trying to explain who he was and how he came to be the object of others' admiration and abuse, Rousseau analyses with unique insight the relationship between an elusive but essential inner self and the variety of social identities he was led to adopt. Confessions is Rousseau's search, through every resource of language, to convey what he despairs of putting into words: the personal quality of one's own existence." "This translation includes the preface to the Neuchatel manuscript, which provides insights into Rousseau's conception of autobiography."--Jacket

Explores the baroque across a wide range of disciplines, from poetics to politics, to the rituals of musical, dramatic, and religious performance.

3 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We are such volatile creatures that we finally feel the sentiments we feign. First published in 1816, Adolphe is the story of a young man with all the privileges and advantages of a noble birth, bt who's still haunted by the meaninglessness of life. He seeks distraction in the pursuit of the beautiful, but older and married Ellenore, a fictionalized version of Madame de Stael. The young Adolphe, inexperienced in love, falls for her unexpectedly and falters under the burden of the illicit love. The Art of The Novella Series Too short to be a novel, too long to be a short story, the novella is generally unrecognized by academics and publishers. Nonetheless, it is a form beloved and practiced by literature's greatest writers. In the Art Of The Novella series, Melville House celebrates this renegade art form and its practitioners with titles that are, in many instances, presented in book form for the first time

Anger, gratitude, and the Enlightenment writer by Patrick Coleman( Book )

8 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the one hand, anger and gratitude are crucial in appreciating what one owes to oneself or others; on the other, they disturb one's internal balance and reinforce one's dependence upon others. This book explores the tension between these two attitudes in the work of French Enlightenment writers such as Rousseau, Diderot, and Marivaux
The wild ass's skin = (La peau de chagrin) by Honoré de Balzac( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first new English translation for more than 35 years of Balzac's extraordinary The Wild Ass's Skin, it is also the first edition in English to include Balzac's original Preface of 1831. This novel has been freshly translated by Helen Constantine, who captures Balzac's stylistic energy and exuberance. Patrick Coleman's wide-ranging introduction considers the multiple perspectives of the novel, its conceptualization of historical change, and its satirical commentary on contemporary society. His extensive notes clarify Balzac's many allusions to the culture and society of his time. The book also includes an up-to-date bibliography and helpful map of Paris in 1830

The art of music( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Art of music is a handsomely illustrated and rich interdisciplinary look at the mutual influence between music and the visual arts across cultures and eras. The book sheds new light on more familiar artists at the intersection of the visual and the musical, such as Wassily Kandinsky and Arnold Schoenberg, and presents new scholarship on less well-known examples in the arts of Asia, Africa, the Americas, and Europe, from antique pottery to contemporary video and sound art. Essays consider key works and themes such as synesthesia and other formal and theoretical crossovers, motifs of musicians, and performative and ritual functions of music, musical instruments, and art. With more than 250 color images illustrating works of art in diverse traditions, The Art of music offers enriching reading for scholars and general audiences alike"--

Interactive control of nonlinear projection for complex animated scenes by Patrick Coleman( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Linear perspective has long been at the foundation of most graphics systems. While it has proven to be effective for many applications, it offers limited creative control over the projection of a scene. Nonlinear projections allow for greater flexibility, but existing approaches do not adapt well to the interactive manipulation necessary for creative exploration. This thesis presents techniques for creating interactive nonlinear projections of complex scene geometry. A general nonlinear projection pipeline is presented that incorporates detailed control of projection, composition, illumination, and shadows. A high-level approach to creating nonlinear projections is then developed that builds upon this pipeline. This approach allows for direct specification of a nonlinear projection relative to an initial linear perspective view via the manipulation of feature proxies in the image plane. Additionally, procedural models of nonlinear projection are explored, including a hierarchal model and models that can respond to information such as object annotations, camera motion, and scene motion
