Wilde writings : contextual conditions( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wilde Writings brings together research by established and emerging scholars, some of whom draw on unpublished archival material, and all of whom have something new and enlightening to say about Wilde. The collection provides fresh insights into critical debates about Wilde and effeminacy, masochism, and Christian theology, and also draws attention to significant problems in the textual editing of his writings, his debt to the 'aesthetic' fiction of the novelist Ouida, and the popularity of his drama in twentieth-century China."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Enchanted ground : reimagining John Dryden by Jayne Elizabeth Lewis( Book )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"At the time of his death in 1700, John Dryden was acknowledged as England's greatest writer, his reputation rivalling even that of Shakespeare." "In Enchanted Ground, Jayne Lewis and Maximillian E. Novak have brought together many of the world's experts on Dryden, and their essays reflect a range of new, distinctly twenty-first-century views of him. The book is divided into two sections. The first explores Dryden's role as a public poet who presented himself as the voice of the restored Stuart court. The second part considers Dryden's relationship to the theatrical arts and music and his connection to the literary past."--Jacket

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Momigliano and antiquarianism : foundations of the modern cultural sciences( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the greatest historians of the twentieth century, Arnaldo Momigliano (1908-1987) is known for his path-breaking studies of ancient Greek and Roman history. The encyclopedic knowledge of the ancient world that Momigliano brought to his work, however, enabled him to make connections between ancient history and the subsequent study of that history. His sweeping vision stretched from antiquity to the present day. In Momigliano and Antiquarianism, Peter N. Miller brings together an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars to provide the first serious study of Momigliano's history of historical scholarship. At its core, this collection is devoted to one of Momigliano's most celebrated subjects, the history of antiquarianism, and one of his most audacious claims, that the decay of early modern antiquarianism actually gave birth to the modern cultural sciences - history, sociology, anthropology, art history, archaeology, and history of religion. Filling a gap in the scholarship, this erudite collection will prove fascinating to teachers and students of classics, history, and the human sciences

Skepticism and political thought in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection, thirteen distinguished contributors examine the influence of the ancient skeptical philosophy of Pyrrho of Elis and Sextus Empiricus on early modern political thought. Classical skepticism argues that in the absence of certainty one must either suspend judgment and live by habit or act on the basis of probability rather than certainty. In either case, one must reject dogmatic confidence in politics and philosophy. Surveying the use of skepticism in works by Hobbes, Descartes, Hume, Smith, and Kant, among others, the essays in Skepticism and Political Thought in the Seventeenth and Eighteenth Centuries demonstrate the pervasive impact of skepticism on the intellectual landscape of early modern Europe. This volume is not just an authoritative account of skepticism's importance from the Enlightenment to the French Revolution, it is also the basis for understanding skepticism's continuing political implications."--Front inside flap of dust jacket

Godwinian Moments is a valuable resource for understanding the intellectual and societal shifts of the long nineteenth-century."--Pub. desc
Structures of feeling in seventeenth-century cultural expression by University of California( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 127 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays from prominent historians, musicologists, and art critics examine methods of non-verbal cultural expression through the broad themes of time, motion, the body, and global relations. Together, they show that seventeenth-century cultural expression was more than just an embryonic stage within Western artistic development. Instead, the contributors argue that this period marks some of the most profound changes in European subjectivities."--Pub. desc
Space and self in early modern European cultures by David Warren Sabean( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As Space and Self shows, there have at all times been multiple paths and alternative possibilities for forming identities, marking personhood, and experiencing life as a concrete, singular individual. Positioning self and space as specific and evolving constructs, a diverse group of contributors explore how persons become embodied in particular places or inscribed in concrete space. Space and Self thus sets the terms for current discussion of these topics and provides new approaches to studying their cultural specificity."--Pub. desc
The age of projects( Book )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'The Projecting Age' was a term the English novelist Daniel Defoe used to describe the end of the seventeenth century. This term could just as easily be used, however, to describe the period known as the 'Long Eighteenth Century' (1660-1789). The Age of Projects uses the notion of the project as a key to understanding the massive social, cultural, political, literary, and scientific transitions that occurred in Europe during this time." "The essays in this collection examine an array of projects - fraudulent, grandiose, altruistic, and idealistic - that reveal the period's preoccupation with retrieving the past, improving the present, and envisioning the future. Examining such varied topics as Sir Francis Bacon's quest for human longevity, Jonathan Swift's satire on the possibility of a computer, and Gottfried Leibniz's effort to build one, this volume provides unique insight into the often exuberant, sometimes conflicting, ambitions and aspirations characteristic of the era."--Jacket
Representing imperial rivalry in the early modern Mediterranean by Barbara Fuchs( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Representing Imperial Rivalry in the Early Modern Mediterranean explores representations of national, racial, and religious identities within a region dominated by the clash of empires. Bringing together studies of English, Spanish, Italian, and Ottoman literature and cultural artifacts, the volume moves from the broadest issues of representation in the Mediterranean to a case study -- early modern England -- where the "Mediterranean turn" has radically changed the field. The essays in this wide-ranging literary and cultural study examine the rhetoric which surrounds imperial competition in this era, ranging from poems commemorating the battle of Lepanto to elaborately adorned maps of contested frontiers. They will be of interest to scholars in fields such as history, comparative literary studies, and religious studies. --Provided by publisher
Cultures of communication : theologies of media in early modern Europe and beyond( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Contrary to the historiographical commonplace "no Reformation without print" Cultures of Communication examines media in the early modern world through the lens of the period's religious history. Looking beyond the emergence of print, this collection of ground-breaking essays highlights the pivotal role of theology in the formation of the early modern cultures of communication. The authors assembled here urge us to understand the Reformation as a response to the perceived crisis of religious communication in late medieval Europe. In addition, they explore the novel demands placed on European media ecology by the acceleration and intensification of global interconnectedness in the early modern period. As the Christian evangelizing impulse began to propel growing numbers of Europeans outward to the Americas and Asia, theories and practices of religious communication had to be reformed to accommodate an array of new communicative constellations -- across distances, languages, cultures
