Most widely held works by Ruth Morse
Chaucer traditions : studies in honour of Derek Brewer by Ruth Morse( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chaucer was perceived as the father of English poetry, and his works gave rise to a diversity of traditions of both creative response and critical commentary, to subsequent 'Chaucerian' authors and to a body of comment about his writings. This book is the first to describe Chaucer's literary influence across a wide range of writers and periods. It takes as its theme the variety of responses to Chaucer or 'Chaucer Traditions', and addresses topics of special interest arising from the effects Chaucer's work had on subsequent writers in the three centuries leading up to Dryden. Each essay focuses on a certain writer or literary tradition discussing these in the context of Chaucer's work and its influence. The result is an important collection of essays which will be of interest to all teachers and students of Chaucer, as well as to scholars of poetry in later periods

Medieval Shakespeare : pasts and presents by Ruth Morse( Book )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For many, Shakespeare represents the advent of modernity. It is easy to forget that he was in fact a writer deeply embedded in the Middle Ages, who inherited many of his shaping ideas and assumptions from the medieval past. This collection brings together essays by internationally renowned scholars of medieval and early modern literature, the history of the book and theatre history to present new perspectives on Shakespeare and his medieval heritage. Separated into four parts, the collection explores Shakespeare and his work in the context of the Middle Ages, medieval books and language, the British past, and medieval conceptions of drama and theatricality, together showing Shakespeare's work as rooted in late medieval history and culture. Insisting upon Shakespeare's complexity and medieval multiplicity, Medieval Shakespeare gives readers the opportunity to appreciate both Shakespeare and his period within the traditions that fostered and surrounded him"--

Coriolan de William Shakespeare Langages, interprétations, politique(s) by Gilles Bertheau( )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fruit du colloque international tenu à l'Université de Tours en novembre 2006 sous les auspices de la Société Française Shakespeare, manifestation destinée surtout aux étudiants des Concours d'anglais, ce volume se veut une contribution plus que ponctuelle aux études shakespeariennes. Ses treize articles, dont celui de R. Brian Parker, éditeur scientifique de Coriolan pour la série The Oxford Shakespeare, témoignent par la diversité de leurs approches de l'intérêt et des débats que continue à susciter cette dernière des tragédies de Shakespeare, œuvre à la fois intellectuellement stimulante, poétiquement riche, politiquement provocatrice et théâtralement puissante

Entre faits et fiction : l'écriture de la nation dans l'oeuvre de Nadine Gordimer : 1948-2010 by Rim Makni( Book )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By concentrating on Nadine Gordirner's work written throughout her long and prolific career, the thesis covers sixty-two years of South African history and literary production and leads us to examine the synergy between nation and narration. The concomitance of these two notions can initially be ascribed to historical circumstances, since the author's literary beginnings coincided with the advient of the apartheid regime in South Afiica. Starting with the questioning of her own identity as both a white South African and white writer, she then devoted her writing to understanding and recounting the complex political evolution of her country. From apartheid and its colonial origins to the post-apartheid moment and the present era of economic and cultural globalization, these changes have prompted her to rethink existing literary and political forms. We will therefore question the power of Nadine Gordimer's literary discourse to narrate the South African nation. The corpus we use to tackle this question focuses on her substantial nonfictional writing, previously understudied if not unknown, and on its interaction with her fiction (novels and short stories). We can then observe the impact that the choice of a writing genre mig, ht have on the act of narrating the nation. The author, her work and the national question are here presented as 'post-colonial'. However, based on the South African con/text and with the help of recent critical theory, we will also argue that we must redefine such a label which sometimes turas out to be problematic and totalizing
