The philosophy of enchantment : studies in folktale, cultural criticism, and anthropology by R. G Collingwood( )

23 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 1,779 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the long-awaited publication of a set of writings by the British philosopher, historian, and archaeologist R.G. Collingwood on critical, anthropological, and cultural themes only hinted at in his previously available work. At the centre of the book are six chapters of a study of folktale and magic, composed by Collingwood in the mid-1930s and intended for development into a book. Here Collingwood applies the principles of his philosophy of history to problems in the long-term evolution of human society and culture." "The volume opens with three substantial introductory essays by the editors, authorities in the fields of critical and literary history, social and cultural anthropology, and the philosophy of history and the history of ideas; they provide their explanatory and contextual notes to guide the reader through the texts. The Philosophy of Enchantment brings hitherto unrecognized areas of Collingwood's achievement to light, and demonstrates the broad range of his intellectual engagements, their integration, and their relevance to current areas of debate in the fields of philosophy, cultural studies, social and literary history, and anthropology."--Jacket
Ridiculous critics : Augustan mockery of critical judgment by Philip Smallwood( )

13 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 1,142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ridiculous Critics is an anthology of eighteenth-century writings on the figure of the literary critic, and on the critic's mixed and complex role. The collection assembles critical texts and satirical images chronologically to suggest a vision of the history of eighteenth-century literary criticism. Including comic, vicious, heartfelt and absurd passages from critics, poets, novelists and literary commentators celebrated and obscure, the writings range through poetry, fiction, drama, and periodical writing. The anthology also includes two original essays discussing and illustrating the irrepressible spirit of critical ridicule in the period, and commending its value and effect. The first offers an evaluation of the merciless and sometimes shockingly venomous satirical attacks on critical habits and personalities of the eighteenth century. The editors argue that such attacks are reflexive, in the sense that criticism becomes increasingly supple and able to observe and examine its own irresponsible ingenuities from within. The volume's concluding essay supplies an analysis of modern modes of criticism and critical history, and suggests applications across time. We propose that humor's vital force was once an important part of living criticism. The eighteenth-century mockery of critics casts light on a neglected common thread in the history of criticism and its recent manifestations; it prompts questions about the relative absence of comedy from the stories we presently tell about critics dead or alive. The passages invite laughter, both with the critics and at their expense, and suggest the place that ridicule might have had since the eighteenth century in the making of judgments, and in the pricking of critical pretension. For this reason, they indicate the role that laughter may still have in criticism today and provide an encouraging precedent for its future.--Provided by publisher
Johnson's critical presence : image, history, judgment by Philip Smallwood( Book )

12 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 527 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Samuel Johnson remains one of the most frequently discussed and cited of the eighteenth-century critics; but historians of criticism have invariably interpreted his work within conventions that have allowed for little evaluative commerce between the needs of the critical present and the voices of the critical past." "In Johnson's Critical Presence Smallwood offers a new account of Johnson's major critical writings conceived according to a different kind of historical potential. He suggests that the historicization of eighteenth-century criticism can best be understood in the light of the 'dialogic' and 'translational' historiographies of Collingwood, Gadamer and Ricoeur, and that the explanatory contexts of Johnson's criticism must include poetry in addition to theory; in this his study seeks to displace both the history of ideas as the leading paradigm for the history of criticism and to question the developmental narrative on which it relies."--Jacket

Johnson re-visioned : looking before and after( Book )

9 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How far does Johnson's mind touch the critical consciousness of the present day, and how far is the modern experience of his writings a form of historical knowledge? This volume of essays by British and American scholars seeks to answer these questions from a sequence of argued perspectives that looks both to the past and to the potential future of Johnson's reputation."--BOOK JACKET
Critical pasts : writing criticism, writing history by Philip Smallwood( Book )

10 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume assembles new thinking on the theory, practice, and cultural value of the history of literary criticism. Focusing on a theme that has attracted relatively little developed theoretical commentary hitherto, the authors of these essays draw on specialist areas of critical history, and different kinds of problems, to illustrate the paradoxes, that attend any attempt to write the history of critical writing. Commentary begins with medieval literary theory, explores the social dimension of Restoration criticism, the relations between poetry and criticism, and a test case in eighteenth-century criticism's reception aesthetics

Paper, ink, and achievement : Gabriel Hornstein and the revival of eighteenth-century scholarship by Kevin Lee Cope( )

2 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During his forty-two years as president of AMS Press, Gabriel Hornstein quietly sponsored and stimulated the revival of "long" eighteenth-century studies. Whether by reanimating long-running research publications; by creating scholarly journals; or by converting daring ideas into lauded books, "Gabe" initiated a golden age of Enlightenment scholarship. This understated publishing magnate created a global audience for a research specialty that many scholars dismissed as antiquarianism. Paper, Ink, and Achievement finds in the career of this impresario a vantage point on the modern study of the Enlightenment. An introduction discusses Hornstein's life and achievements, revealing the breadth of his influence on our understanding of the early days of modernity. Three sets of essays open perspectives on the business of long-eighteenth-century studies: on the role of publishers, printers, and bibliophiles in manufacturing cultural legacies; on authors whose standing has been made or eclipsed by the book culture; and on literary modes that have defined, delimited, or directed Enlightenment studies"--
