Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, printed single-sided, grade: 2,7, RWTH Aachen University (Institut für Anglistik ), course: Readings in Australian Aboriginal Literature, Proseminar, 7 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: More than 230 years ago, Captain James Cook, a British explorer, discovered the Australian continent and claimed it for Great Britain. From then on, the Indigenous Australian population experienced a drastic cultural and social change. Today around 68% of the Aboriginal population [ ] live in urban environements (Knudsen 2004, S. 73). Despite the progress in assimilation, smoldering sources of social friction between Aboriginal people and the white community, like unemployment, poverty, alcoholism and bad health care, remain. These subjects often occur in literature of indigenous authors, especially poetry, the most popular genre of Aboriginal creative expression inEnglish (Shoemaker 1989, S. 179).Another important theme, which is often worked up in indigenous poetry, is the urban Aboriginal s relation to their cultural heritage, which will be the topic of this termpaper.This theme is of high topicality nowadays, considering the increasing number of Aboriginals living in urban environments. It will be important to figure out to what extent the Indigenous s past does still play a role in their present lives. Also it will be of interest if they still feel connected with their cultural past, if nature still plays a decisive role, even in civilised Aboriginals lives, and how they generally feel about their situation of being part of two significantly differing cultures. Therefore, the poems will be analysed on the basis of the subtopics nature, identity and past.The aim of this paper is to provide a small overview of recent poetic works dealing with this topical theme of the urban Aboriginals relation to their cultural heritage to draw the reader s attention to a new, probably even largely unknown part of Aboriginal s lives.This termpaper will first give a short overview about the Aboriginal poetry in general and the authors lives. Later on, poems in which subjects like past, civilisation or nature occur will be analysed. Poems by Oodgeroo Noonuccal and Jack Davis will act as exemplary works to be analysed and interpreted. Therefore, at the beginning of the termpaper some short biographical facts about these poets will be given to become acquainted with their culturalbackground.

Robert Browning's "Home-Thoughts, from Abroad" GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, printed single-sided, grade: 1,0, University of Vienna (Institut für Anglistik & Amerikanistik), course: Literature Course - Blockbuster Poetry, language: English, abstract: Home-Thoughts, from Abroad was written in about 1845 and appeared in Browning s collection Dramatic Romances and Lyrics. In 1844, before its publication, Browning felt himself in need of a change, a trip to southern Italy to complement his visit in 1838 to northern Italy, where he had found artistic renewal (Ryals 201). So Browning had already spent some time in Italy, which later became his second homeland, before writing this poem. Thus, the longing for England expressed in it is very likely to result from a biographical impetus and therefore gains in sincerity. Taking this biographical context into account, one might immediately have the impression that Home-Thoughts, from Abroad represents an expression of patriotic loyalty (Ryals 212). In order to substantiate this claim, it is necessary to take a closer look at it, and examine how Browning turns his feelings of longing, homesickness and nostalgia into a concrete poetic act.

Warfare and Poetry in the Middle East I B TAURIS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Part of the rich legacy of the Middle East is a poetic record stretching back five millennia. This unparalleled repository of knowledge - across different languages, cultures and religions - allows us to examine continuity and change in human expression from the beginnings of writing to the present day. In Warfare and Poetry in the Middle East leading scholars draw upon this legacy to explore the ways in which poets, from the third millennium bc to the present day, have responded to effects of war. The contributors deal with material in a wide variety of languages - including Sumerian, Hittite, Akkadian, biblical and modern Hebrew, and classical and contemporary Arabic - and range from the Sumerian lament on the destruction of Ur and the Assyrian conquest of Jerusalem to the al-R?miyy?t of the poet and warrior prince Ab? Fir?s al-?amd?n?, the popular Arabic epics and romances that form the siyar, to the contemporary poetry of Hamas and Hezbollah. Some of the poems are heroic in tone celebrating victory and the prowess of warriors and soldiers; others reflect keenly on the pity and destruction of warfare, on the grief and suffering that war causes. The result is a work that provides a unique reflection upon the ways in which this most violent and pervasive of human activities has been reflected in different cultures. The history of war begins in the Middle East - the earliest reported conflict in human history was fought between the neighbouring city states of Lagash and Umma in ancient Iraq. At a time when the Middle East seems to be permanently at war and wracked by violence, it is salutary to look back at the ancient roots of modern attitudes and to see that in the past, as in the present, these attitudes are much more varied, and the emotions more subtle, than often realised.
