Gustave Moreau YALE UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The acclaimed French painter Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) strove to renew history painting by creating epic art in a nonacademic manner. In this thought-provoking book, Peter Cooke explains how Moreau essentially created pictorial Symbolism through his novel approach to the genre of history painting. In the process, the author closely examines the artist through some of his major paintings, his ideology and aesthetic, and, for the first time, in relation to other artists of his time and of the previous generations. The narrative follows Moreau's career from his Neoclassical and academic training through his conversion to Romanticism, his studies in Italy, his experiences as an exhibitor at the Paris Salon, and his subsequent years as a professor at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts and as the founder of his own museum. By drawing on unpublished manuscripts from the Musee Gustave Moreau in Paris, Cooke presents fresh insights into how Moreau's art reflects his spiritualist, Catholic ideology, as well as his controversial effect on the art world of his time.

A meditation on the production, content, and techniques of the American comic book Originally published in France and long sought in English translation, Jean-Paul Gabilliet's Of Comics and Men: A Cultural History of American Comic Books documents the rise and development of the American comic book industry from the 1930s to the present. The book intertwines aesthetic issues and critical biographies with the concerns of production, distribution, and audience reception, making it one of the few interdisciplinary studies of the art form. A thorough introduction by translators and comics scholars Bart Beaty and Nick Nguyen brings the book up to date with explorations of the latest innovations, particularly the graphic novel. The book is organized into three sections: a concise history of the evolution of the comic book form in America; an overview of the distribution and consumption of American comic books, detailing specific controversies such as the creation of the Comics Code in the mid-1950s; and the problematic legitimization of the form that has occurred recently within the academy and in popular discourse. Viewing comic books from a variety of theoretical lenses, Gabilliet shows how seemingly disparate issues--creation, production, and reception--are in fact connected in ways that are not necessarily true of other art forms. Analyzing examples from a variety of genres, this book, now in paperback and in English, provides a thorough landmark overview of American comic books that shed new light on this versatile art form.

California Indian Baskets Costano Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

California Indian Baskets is lavishly illustrated in full colour with rare baskets from the magnificent collections of the University of California, Harvard University, Smithsonian Institution, The British Museum, Madrid's Museo de America, Royal Museum of Scotland, Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, Southwest Museum and many other world-class museums and private collections. The vast majority of these rare baskets have never appeared in print before. Made possible in part through the support and vision of three California Indian tribes, this remarkable book is the result of decades of research by noted basketry scholar Ralph Shanks. Expertly researched and well written, California Indian Baskets honours the achievements of the First Californians. The book illuminates Native American art, history, technology, population movements, cultural interactions and native plant uses. The book demonstrates basketry studies can rank with archaeology, linguistics and DNA research in understanding and appreciating Native American culture and history. This is especially true in California where baskets were central to daily life. It was through basketry that the most populous and linguistically diverse Native American population in the United States was able to create a highly productive economy and vibrant cultural life with no agriculture and very limited use of pottery. Native California was not "pre-agricultural," but rather a land where basketry was combined with native plant resources so successfully that agriculture was not needed. Ralph Shanks is the author of the companion volume, Indian Baskets of Central California, and is president of the Miwok Archeological Preserve of Marin. Lisa Woo Shanks is editor of the Indian Baskets of California and Oregon series.

Marianne and the Puritan Lexington Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

As recent history continues to show, France and the United states enjoy a love-hate relationship. Expressions of admiration and dismissal of one culture by the other are usually based on superficial judgments derived from well-worn cliches that do little more than perpetuate perceived and real differences between the two societies. Those who study these differences inevitably examine them through their own cultural peculiarities. Marianne and the Puritan attempts to draw these various analyses together by contrasting the different ways each culture constructs the romantic couple through U.S. and French popular cinema. David I. Grossvogel's broad sweeping, comparative, and interdisciplinary study is conducted with great elegance and erudition. It is a must for film studies, literary criticism, francophone studies, art history, and cultural sociology and anthropology.

Philology Princeton University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Many today do not recognize the word, but "philology" was for centuries nearly synonymous with humanistic intellectual life, encompassing not only the study of Greek and Roman literature and the Bible but also all other studies of language and literature, as well as religion, history, culture, art, archaeology, and more. In short, philology was the queen of the human sciences. How did it become little more than an archaic word? In Philology, the first history of Western humanistic learning as a connected whole ever published in English, James Turner tells the fascinating, forgotten story of how the study of languages and texts led to the modern humanities and the modern university. This compelling narrative traces the development of humanistic learning from its beginning among ancient Greek scholars and rhetoricians, through the Middle Ages, Renaissance, and Enlightenment, to the English-speaking world of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Turner shows how evolving researches into the texts, languages, and physical artifacts of the past led, over many centuries, to sophisticated comparative methods and a deep historical awareness of the uniqueness of earlier ages. But around 1800, he explains, these interlinked philological and antiquarian studies began to fragment into distinct academic fields. These fissures resulted, within a century or so, in the new, independent "disciplines" that we now call the humanities. Yet the separation of these disciplines only obscured, rather than erased, their common features. The humanities today face a crisis of relevance, if not of meaning and purpose. Understanding their common origins-and what they still share-has never been more urgent.

Mohawk Valley and Lake Ontario (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Mohawk Valley and Lake Ontario The author and the publishers of the Great Lakes Series feel that it is proper for them to set forth briefly the principles which have guided them in preparing these supplementary readers. Though we realize that our work needs to be interesting, we do not wish it to be merely entertaining. These readers are school books and are not intended as a recreation for idle hours. Therefore we have been careful not to give too much space to stories of battles and skirmishes or to picturesque Indian legends. Because the reading lesson is too often but slightly related to the rest of the curriculum, we have tried to supplement the work in other studies by laying stress upon the more obvious relations between geography, history and commerce. Exploration and trade in America have both romantic and practical aspects, and one or the other of these is sure to appeal to wideawake children. The scenes visited in these books offer abundant material of both kinds - the chief difficulty has been to select. In deciding upon the story form, as a convenient thread upon which to string what we wish to tell, we have tried to steer clear of two temptations. We do not intend that these stories shall be guide-books; therefore we have been sparing of mere dates and figures. Also, we do not wish to make James and Carrie a pair of precocious little prigs, escorted by a pedant. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Stories and Catechisings in Illustration of the Collects, Vol. 1 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Stories and Catechisings in Illustration of the Collects, Vol. 1: Or, a Year With the First-Class Boys of Forley; From Advent to Tuesday in Easter Week It is proposed to bring out under this title a series of Tracts, designed chiefly for the instruction and amusement of Sunday Scholars and other children; a Sunday evening companion, engaging their sympathies in the trials, duties, pleasures, victories, failings, faults, and penitence of children like themselves, and at the same time explaining and illustrating for them the meaning and force of those petitions which they have on that day learnt by heart and offered up. As the series progresses, the dispositions and principles of a dozen village boys will be gradually developed, and the effect upon them of a religious training shown. The history of these village children, and their catechetical lessons, are insterspersed with stories of varied character, which, exemplifying some principle or lesson of the Collect for the day, may be found useful to read aloud to Sunday Scholars and other children when their severer studies are over; and it is hoped that the catechetical portion, the result of a considerable experience among the children of the poor, will be found useful for those engaged in teaching, as well as directly instructive to their scholars.
