Mit Hesiod beginnt die Tradition lehrhaften Dichtens in der Antike. Wie Wissen in dichterischer Gestalt vermittelt wird, unterliegt dem historischen Wandel. Welche Funktionen erfuellt das Lehrgedicht im sich wandelnden soziokulturellen Kontext? L�sst sich eine Periodisierung in der Gattungsgeschichte feststellen? Wie bedingen sich Traditionsbezogenheit lehrhaften Dichtens auf der einen und experimentelle Themenvielfalt auf der anderen Seite? In welchem Verh�ltnis stehen poetische und prosaische Fach- und Lehrschriften? Diesen Fragen gingen die Philologen und Historiker w�hrend des 2. Rostocker Kolloquiums zu antiken Fachschriftstellern nach. Entstanden ist ein Band, in dem chronologisch der Bogen vom archaischen Griechenland bis ins lateinische Mittelalter gespannt wird, und in dem theoretische �berlegungen ebenso wie Einzelinterpretationen sich zu einem �berblick ueber die Funktionsweise von Wissensvermittlung in dichterischer Gestalt runden. Mit Beitr�gen von: Marietta Horster / Christiane Reitz, Peter Toohey, Bernd Effe, Wilhelm Bluemer, Oliver Primavesi, Christian K��er, Peter Kruschwitz, Wolfgang Huebner, Katharina Volk, Monica Gale, Claudia Schindler, Christiane Reitz, Roland Mayer, Alison Sharrock, Marco Formisano, Thomas Haye.

This volume offers new ways of comparing prominent features of the world's religions. Comparison has been at the heart of religious studies as a modern academic discipline, but comparison can be problematic. Seeking to reinvigorate comparison and avoid its excesses, contributors to this volume use theories of metaphor and metonymy from the fields of philosophy, linguistics, and anthropology to look at religious ideas, images, and activities.

An explanation of the unique role of the book and book collecting in South Africa due to the apartheid This book explores the power of print and the politics of the book in South Africa from a range of disciplinary perspectives- historical, bibliographic, literary-critical, sociological, and cultural studies. The essays collected here, by leading international scholars, address a range of topics as varied as: the role of print cultures in contests over the nature of the colonial public sphere in the nineteenth century; orthography; iimbongi, orature and the canon; book- collecting and libraries; print and transnationalism; Indian Ocean cosmopolitanisms; books in war; how the fates of South African texts, locally and globally, have been affected by their material instantiations; photocomics and other ephemera; censorship, during and after apartheid; books about art and books as art; local academic publishing; and the challenge of 'book history' for literary and cultural criticism in contemporary South Africa.

"Expertly blends reality and fantasy to explore what's behind love and loss, what it takes to heal." - Randy Ribay, author of National Book Award finalist Patron Saints of Nothing Acclaimed author Lilliam Rivera blends a touch of magical realism into a timely story about cultural identity, overcoming trauma, and the power of first love. Eury comes to the Bronx as a girl haunted. Haunted by losing everything in Hurricane Maria--and by an evil spirit, Ato. She fully expects the tragedy that befell her and her family in Puerto Rico to catch up with her in New York. Yet, for a time, she can almost set this fear aside, because there's this boy . . . Pheus is a golden-voiced, bachata-singing charmer, ready to spend the summer on the beach with his friends, serenading his on-again, off-again flame. That changes when he meets Eury. All he wants is to put a smile on her face and fight off her demons. But some dangers are too powerful for even the strongest love, and as the world threatens to tear them apart, Eury and Pheus must fight for each other and their lives. Featuring contemporary Afro-Latinx characters, this retelling of the Greek myth Orpheus and Eurydice is perfect for fans of Ibi Zoboi's Pride and Daniel José Older's Shadowshaper. A Pura Belpré Honor winner!

As both a distinct genre and a particular mode of filmmaking, the idea of the epic has been central to the history of cinema. Including contributions from both established and emerging film music scholars, the ten essays in Music in Epic Film: Listening to Spectacle provide a cross-section of contemporary scholarship on the subject. They explore diverse topics, including the function of music in epic narratives, the socio-political implications of cinematic music, and the use of pre-existing music in epic films. Intended for students and scholars in film music, film appreciation, and media studies, the wide range of topics and the diversity of the films that the authors discuss make Music in Epic Film: Listening to Spectacle an ideal introduction to the field of music in epic film.

Structure in Milton s Poetry

Milton's skill in constructing poems whose structure is determined, not by rule or precedent, but by the thought to be expressed, is one of his chief accomplishments as a creative artist. Professor Condee analyzes seventeen of Milton's poems, both early and late, well and badly organized, in order to trace the poet's developing ability to create increasingly complex poetic structures. Three aspects of Milton's use of poetic structure are stressed: the relation of the parts to the whole and parts to parts, his ability to unite actual events with the poetic situation, and his use and variation of literary tradition to establish the desired structural unity.
