Shelley and the revolutionary sublime by Cian Duffy( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A major new study of Percy Shelley's intellectual life and poetic career, Shelley and the Revolutionary Sublime identifies Shelley's fascination with sublime natural phenomena as a key element in his understanding of the way ideas like 'nature' and 'imagination' informed the social and political structures of the Romantic period. Offering a genuinely fresh set of perspectives on Shelley's texts and contexts, Cian Duffy argues that Shelley's engagement with the British and French discourse on the sublime had a profound influence on his writing about political change in that age of revolutionary crisis. Examining Shelley's extensive use of sublime imagery and metaphor, Duffy offers not only a substantial reassessment of Shelley's work but also a significant re-appraisal of the role of the sublime in the cultural history of Britain during the Romantic period."--Jacket

The landscapes of the sublime 1700-1830 : classic ground by Cian Duffy( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Landscapes of the Sublime, 1700-1830 is a major new study of the place of the 'natural sublime' in the cultural history of the eighteenth century and Romantic period. Drawing on a range of scholarship on the eighteenth century and Romantic period, on the wider category of 'the sublime' in Western and European thought, and on the praxis of literary and historical exegesis, the book generates new cultural histories of the different species of the 'natural sublime encountered by British and European travellers and explorers, including: the Alps; the Italian volcanoes, Vesuvius and Etna; the Arctic and the Antarctic; the deserts of central and southern Africa; and the universe being revealed by the new astronomy"--
Romantic Norths : Anglo-Nordic exchanges, 1770-1842( )

13 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores various forms of cultural influence and exchange between Britain and the Nordic countries in the late eighteenth century and romantic period. Broadly new-historicist in approach, but drawing also on influential descriptions of genre, discipline, mediation, cultural exchange, and comparative methodologies, these essays not only constitute a substantial and innovative contribution to scholarly understanding of the development of romanticisms and romantic nationalisms in Britain and the Nordic countries, but also describe a pattern of cultural encounter which was predicated upon exchange and a sense of commonality rather than upon the perception of difference or alterity which has so often been discerned by critical descriptions of British romantic-period engagements with non-British cultures. The volume ought to appeal to a broad and genuinely international academic audience with interests in eighteenth-century and romantic-period culture in Britain and Scandinavia as well as to undergraduates taking courses in eighteenth-century, romantic, and Scandinavian studies
Cultures of the sublime : selected readings, 1750-1830( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This critical anthology examines the place of the sublime in the cultural history of the late eighteenth century and Romantic period. Traditionally, the sublime has been associated with impressive natural phenomena and has been identified as a narrow aesthetic or philosophical category. Cultures of the Sublime: Selected Readings, 1750-1830: -recovers a broader context for engagements with, and writing about, the sublime -offers a selection of texts from a wide range of ostensibly unrelated areas of knowledge which both generate and investigate sublime effects -considers writings about mountains, money, crowds, the Gothic, the exotic and the human mind -contextualizes and supports the extracts with detailed editorial commentary. Also featuring helpful suggestions for further reading, this is an ideal resource for anyone seeking a fresh, up-to-date assessment of the sublime"--

C-And Ku-Band Two-Way Satellite Time Transfer Comparison Experiment( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In the development of a new time dissemination capability for the U.S. Air Force Eastern Missile Test Range, the satcom channels to be used became an issue in terms of performance over different links and available coverage. A primary advantage of C band is that satellite coverage is more widely available in remote areas where Ku coverage is limited or not available at all. To investigate the performance issue, a Two-Way Satellite Time Transfer (TWSTT) experiment was performed to obtain comparative data over both C and Ku band. Time transfers between two sites using atomic frequency standard clocks were performed over both links to compare results in a controlled experiment. The objective of the experiment was to determine the relative precision of TWSTT over the frequency bands. Time transfers were performed between a station located at Rockledge, Florida and the NIST facility at Ft. Collins, Colorado for a period of approximately ten days. GPS receivers were used in common-view mode referenced to the same clocks as an independent comparative measure. Tests were conducted over a wide range of temperature variations and weather conditions. Observations were obtained during snow, heavy rain and sun with temperatures from 8 to 90 degrees Fahrenheit at the two stations. Analysis of the resultant data shows that time transfer over the two links performed equally^with residual RMS results of approximately 5 nanoseconds
