The Idea of medieval literature : new essays on Chaucer and medieval culture in honor of Donald R. Howard( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays collected in this volume are by colleagues and students of Donald R. Howard - all noted authorities on Geoffrey Chaucer and late medieval English literature. The essay subjects range from a study of Chaucer's Edwardian period to the writings of Margery of Kempe. Alfred David begins the section on Chaucer's culture with an exploration of Chaucer's earliest poetry, linking it with the culture of Edward III's reign. Lee Patterson analyzes Chaucer's several ventures into the complaint form, showing the interconnections between and among complaint, lyric, and narrative. Glending Olson treats the Canterbury Tales as a game, with games and gamemanship as normative rather than extraneous, while Sherron E. Knopp examines the relations between Augustinian poetic theory and Chaucer's use of the imagination of the Book of the Duchess. R.W. Hanning assesses the role of "pryvetee," or privacy, in Chaucer's poetics. In the section devoted to Chaucer and his writings, Paul Strohm studies the ideological language of historical documents that harmonize especially well with Chaucer's short poem Lak of Stedfastnesse. John M. Fyler traces the influence of the House of Fame on Alexander Pope's writings. Florence H. Ridley offers a comprehensive history of criticism of the Friar's Tale. Ralph Hanna III examines affiliations between and among important manuscript groupings of Troilus and Criseyde, while Karla Taylor evaluates the significance of the Merchant as a "reticent" storyteller. John M. Ganim begins the third section, Medieval Culture and Society, with an evaluation of the Annales school and its importance for the study of medieval culture and literature. Anne Middleton scrutinizes the meaning and significance of Langland's "life" as it is represented in and through Piers Plowman. Thomas Moser analyzes the interpretive context of a short Middle English lyric on "inordinate love" from Copenhagen Thott 110. Sue Ellen Holbrook argues against previous biographical and psychological readings of The Boke of Margery Kempe, while George H. Brown discusses the use and abuse of Scripture by medieval writers. Finally, Steven F. Kruger treats the issue of the bodies of Jews, including bodily injury, in the Prioress's Tale and the Play of the Sacrament

Leigh Brackett : American science fiction writer : her life and work by John Leonard Carr( )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

My second chapter, besides containing a brief history of pulp magazines in America, also attempts to recreate the working conditions and attitudes of the pulp writer. In particular, I discuss the unusual evolution of the science fiction magazines. Chapter three considers Leigh Brackett as a pulp writer, especially in her persona "Queen of the Space Opera." The characteristic traits of the fiction she wrote for the pulps are analyzed. The five stories in The Coming of the Terrans (1967) are examined in detail, as is a representative Brackett science fiction adventure novel, The Starmen of Llyrdis (1952), and one of the strongest of her science fantasies, People of the Talisman (1964)
Science, the supernatural, and the postmodern impulse in contemporary fiction by Jeffrey V Yule( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Postmodernism has come to be viewed as monolithically antiscientific. Yet while scholars have focused on criticism and theory, a growing body of postmodernist fiction has gone generally unacknowledged. These texts address science, the supernatural, pseudoscience, and New Age beliefs--often jointly--to explore how science and other knowledge systems relate to one another and to consider what their proper relationship should be. Some commentators view postmodernist fiction's emphasis on ontological plurality as an attack on science, failing to consider the degree to which this fiction takes a provisionally supportive view of science
Sir Gawain and the green knight: a study in simultaneous time by Joanne Gerlacher( Book )

The celebration of imperfect heroes and heroines in Orlando Furioso, Don Juan, and Le Morte Darthur by Ann T Bertagnolli( )

1 edition published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The dissertation devotes a chapter to each text. The Orlando Furioso assumes an intermediate position to set up and clarify the ironic/affirming pattern outlined in the Introduction. Because of its direct appeal to and modification of both romance and mock heroic traditions, this poem helps us to place Don Juan and Le Morte Darthur and to see how they, though at opposite ends of the spectrum, call upon some of the same conventions and modify them. More space is devoted to Don Juan and Le Morte Darthur than to Orlando Furioso to illustrate that despite their appearing to be the most divergent from one another, these works share striking, structural similarities
Uncommon fatherland : Medieval English perceptions of Rome and Italy by Joseph L Grossi( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation argues that late medieval English literature depicts Rome and Italy with the same cultural anxieties found in works that imagine the Muslim world. Although partially Orientalizing Rome and Italy, however, the alliterative Morte Arthure, John Lydgate's Fall of Princes and John Capgrave's Solace of Pilgrims also acknowledge their centrality in the European cultural imagination
