British aestheticism and Ancient Greece : Hellenism, reception, gods in exile by Stefano-Maria Evangelista( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"British Aestheticism and Ancient Greece is the first comprehensive study of the reception of classical Greece among English aesthetic writers of the nineteenth century. By exploring this rich history of reception, the book aims to give readers a new and fuller understanding of literary aestheticism, its intellectual contexts, its cultural and sexual politics, and its challenges to mainstream Victorian culture."--Jacket
Pater the classicist : classical scholarship, reception, and aestheticism by Charles Martindale( )

11 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 261 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pater the Classicist is the first book to address in detail Walter Pater's important contribution to the study of classical antiquity. Widely considered our greatest aesthetic critic and now best known as a precursor to modernist writers and post-modernist thinkers of the twentieth century, Pater was also a classicist by profession who taught at the University of Oxford. He wrote extensively about Greek art and philosophy, but also authored an influential historical novel set in ancient Rome, Marius the Epicurean, and a variety of short stories depicting the survival of classical culture in later ages. These superficially diverging interests actually went closely hand-in-hand: it can plausibly be asserted that it is the classical tradition in its broadest sense, including the question of how to understand its workings and temporalities, which forms Pater's principal subject as a writer. Although he initially approached antiquity obliquely, through the Italian Renaissance, for example, or the poetry of William Morris, later in his career he wrote more, and more directly, about the ancient world, and particularly about Greece, his first love. The essays in this collection cover all his major works and reveal a many-sided and inspirational figure, whose achievements helped to reinvigorate the classical studies that were the basis of the English educational system of the nineteenth century, and whose conception of Classics as cross-disciplinary and outward-looking can be a model to scholars and students today. They discuss his classicism generally, his fiction set in classical antiquity, his writings on Greek art and culture, and those on ancient philosophy, and in doing so they also illuminate Pater's position within his Victorian context, among figures such as J.A. Symonds, Henry Nettleship, Vernon Lee, and Jane Harrison, as well as his place in the study and reception of Classics today." [4ème de couverture]
Literary cosmopolitanism in the English fin de siècle : citizens of nowhere by Stefano-Maria Evangelista( )

5 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fin de siecle witnessed an extensive and heated debate about cosmopolitanism, which transformed readers' attitudes towards national identity, foreign literatures, translation, and the idea of world literature. Focussing on literature written in English, Literary Cosmopolitanism in the English Fin de Siecle offers a critical examination of cosmopolitanism as a distinctive feature of the literary modernity of this important period of transition. No longer conceived purely as an abstract philosophical ideal, cosmopolitanism-or world citizenship-informed the actual, living practices of authors and readers who sought new ways of relating local and global identities in an increasingly interconnected world. The book presents literary cosmopolitanism as a field of debate and controversy. While some writers and readers embraced the creative, imaginative, emotional, and political potentials of world citizenship, hostile critics denounced it as a politically and morally suspect ideal, and stressed instead the responsibilities of literature towards the nation. In this age of empire and rising nationalism, world citizenship came to enshrine a paradox: it simultaneously connoted positions of privilege and marginality, connectivity and non-belonging.0Chapters on Oscar Wilde, Lafcadio Hearn, George Egerton, the periodical press, and artificial languages bring to light the variety of literary responses to the idea of world citizenship that proliferated at the turn of the twentieth century. The book interrogates cosmopolitanism as a liberal ideology that celebrates human diversity and as a social identity linked to worldliness; it investigates its effect on gender, ethics, and the emotions. It presents the literature of the fin de siecle as a dynamic space of exchange and mediation, and argues that our own approach to literary studies should become less national in focus
Algernon Charles Swinburne : unofficial laureate by Catherine Maxwell( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2018 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Algernon Charles Swinburne (1837-1909), dramatist, novelist, and critic was late Victorian England's unofficial Poet Laureate. Swinburne was admired by his contemporaries for his technical brilliance, his facility with classical and medieval forms, and his courage in expressing his sensual, erotic imagination. His first and best-known verse collection, Poems and Ballads (1866), notable for its consummate craftsmanship and provocative subject matter, created an unrivalled sensation. His radical republican views as expressed in his later political collection Songs before Sunrise (1871) reinforced his reputation as a controversial figure. He was immensely important in his own day but, like several of his contemporaries, suffered neglect and misrepresentation during the first half of the twentieth century. Now, however, Swinburne is acknowledged to be one of the most important Victorian poets, the founding figure for British aestheticism, and the dominant influence for many fin-de-siecle and modernist poets. Forging a vital link between French and English literary culture, he was responsible for promoting avant-garde poets such as Gautier and Baudelaire who would have considerable impact on English decadent writers. This collection of eleven new essays offers a thorough revaluation of this fascinating and complex figure. It situates him in the light of current critical work on cosmopolitanism, politics, form, Victorian Hellenism, gender and sexuality, the arts, and aesthticism and its contested relation to literary modernism

Happy in Berlin? English Writers in the City, The 1920s and Beyond | Englische Autor*innen der 1920er und 30er Jahre by Gesa Stedman( Book )

4 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Chancellor stellte 1929 in seinem Reiseführer How to Be Happy in Berlin eine Frage, die englische Autor*innen insgesamt seit mehr als hundert Jahren beschäftigt - mit unterschiedlichsten Antworten und weitreichender kultureller Wirkung. Neben W. H. Auden, Christopher Isherwood und Stephen Spender, dem berühmten Dreigestirn, das mit seinen Texten und deren Verfilmungen den Grundstein für den Mythos Berlins legte, spielten dabei auch unbekanntere Stimmen eine Rolle: Die Übersetzerin Freuds, Alix Strachey, die aus Berlin eine Fülle lebendiger Briefen an ihren Ehemann James in London schrieb. Die Botschaftergattin Helen D'Abernon, die in ihren Memoiren das soziale Elend Berlins nach dem Ersten Weltkrieg ebenso beschreibt wie die rauschenden Feste in der britischen Botschaft. Oder der pro-faschistische Avantgard-Autor Wyndham Lewis, der in Berlin zunächst der Faszination für Hitler erlag und gegen die sexuelle Freizügigkeit Berlins in der Weimarer Republik wetterte.0Der zweisprachige und reich bebilderte Begleitband zur gleichnamigen Ausstellung geht den vielfältigen Spuren dieser und vieler weiterer Autor*innen nach. Zugleich erklärt er, wie vor allem die männlichen Autoren den Mythos Berlins aktiv herbeischrieben und an welchen Orten sich das abspielte, was in englischen Briefen, Romanen, Memoiren, Reiseführern und Tagebüchern zu höchst ambivalenten Berlinbildern verarbeitet wurde. Dieser Mythos wirkt bis heute nach und findet etwa sein Echo in den Werken gegenwärtiger englischsprachiger Autor*innen, die sich Berlin als Zufluchtsort nach dem Brexit gesucht haben."--Back cover

The reception of Oscar Wilde in Europe by Stefano-Maria Evangelista( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2015 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) is now widely recognised not only as one of the most representative figures of the British fin de siècle, but as one of the most influential Anglophone authors of the nineteenth century. In Britain Wilde suffered a long period of comparative neglect following the scandal of his conviction for 'gross indecency' in 1895; and it is only recently that his works have been reassessed. But while Wilde was subjected to silence in Britain, he became a European phenomenon. His famous dandyism, his witticisms, paradoxes and provocations became the object of imitation and paro
