Wilde writings contextual conditions ( )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 913 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"Wilde Writings brings together research by established and emerging scholars, some of whom draw on unpublished archival material, and all of whom have something new and enlightening to say about Wilde.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."--Jacket

"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

Momigliano and antiquarianism : foundations of the modern cultural sciences ( Book )
2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 190 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

Space and self in early modern European cultures ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The notion of 'selfhood' conjures up images of self-sufficiency, integrity, introspectiveness, and autonomy - characteristics typically associated with 'modernity.' The seventeenth century marks the crucial transition to a new form of 'bourgeois' selfhood, although the concept goes back to the pre-modern and early modern period. A richly interdisciplinary collection, Space and Self integrates perspectives from history, history of literature, and history of art to link the issue of selfhood to the new and vital literature on space
