Seventeenth Century Dutch Travel Literature LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The seventeenth century is important for the Dutch for many reasons. This century is considered as the golden age of economic affluence. During this period the Dutch achieved considerable success in maritime trade. This was also the century when many Dutch people made their journey overseas, especially to Asia as Company (VOC) soldiers, sailors, merchants, serviceman and missionary. This stimulated the interaction between the Dutch and the Asians in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. During their stays in Asia they engaged with the local society, culture, customs, and religion and so on. Through their interaction with local society they earned considerable knowledge of Asiatic regions. Upon their return home they began to publish their experiences on Asia. The book studies a specific seventeenth-century Dutch travel account titled Vervarelyke schip-breuk van'T Oost-Indisch Jacht Ter Schelling written by a Dutch sailor Frans Jansz. van der Heiden. The book demonstrates that the seventeenth-century Dutch travel literature produced the bulk of knowledge on Asia, which can be used for reconstructing early modern history of Asia.

The Far East and the English Imagination, 1600 Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries China, Japan and the Spice Islands dazzled the English imagination as insatiable markets for European goods, and as vast, inexhaustible storehouses of spices and luxury wares. Robert Markley explores the significance of attitudes to the wealth and power of East Asia in rethinking conceptions of national and personal identity in seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century English literature. Alongside works by canonical English authors, this study examines the writings of Jesuit missionaries, Dutch merchants, and English and continental geographers, who directly contended with the challenges that China and Japan posed to visions of western cultural and technological superiority. Questioning conventional Eurocentric histories, in this 2006 book Markley examines the ways in which the writings of Milton, Dryden, Defoe and Swift deal with the complexities of a world in which England was marginalised and which, until 1800, was dominated - economically at least - by the empires of the Far East.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Geographical Review, Vol. 12 The objects of the American Geographical Society are to collect and disseminate geographical information by discussion, lectures, and publications; to establish in the chief city of the United States a place where may be obtained accurate information on every part of the globe; and to encourage such exploring expeditions as seem likely to result in valuable discoveries in geography and the related sciences. The American Geographical Society is the oldest geographical society in the United States. When it was founded, in 1852, there were but twelve similar societies in the world. Now it exchanges publications with more than four hundred scientific associations. The Society publishes the Geographical Review, a quarterly magazine issued in January, April, July, and October, and a Research Series of comprehensive scope. It has also a large and growing library - one of the most important geographical libraries of the world; thousands of maps and charts; and a remarkable collection of atlases of the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries. Travelers, men of science, and others properly accredited are welcome at the rooms of the Society and may freely use the book and map collections. Two gold medals have been founded by the Society, the Cullum Geographical Medal and the Charles P. Daly Medal, which are awarded from time to time to explorers, writers, and men of science who have contributed to the advance of geographical knowledge. In addition it awards the David Livingstone Centenary Medal, founded by the Hispanic Society of America. The qualifications for fellowship are an interest in exploration and travel, in the spread of geographical knowledge, and in the advancement of science.

Pomodoro! UNIVERSITY PRESSES

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

More than just the beloved base ingredient of so many of our favorite dishes, the tomato has generated both profound riches and controversy in its farming, processing, exchange, and consumption. It is a crop infused with national pride and passion for those who grow it, and a symbol of Old World nostalgia for those who claim its history and legacy. Over time, the tomato has embodied a range of values and meanings. From its domestication in Central America, it has traveled back and forth across the Atlantic, powering a story of aspiration and growth, agriculture and industry, class and identity, and global transition. In this entertaining and organic history, David Gentilcore recounts the surprising rise of the tomato from its New World origin to its Old World significance. From its inauspicious introduction into Renaissance Europe, the tomato came to dominate Italian cuisine and the food industry over the course of three centuries. Gentilcore explores why elite and peasant cultures took so long to assimilate the tomato into Italian cooking and how it eventually triumphed. He traces the tomato's appearance in medical and agricultural treatises, travel narratives, family recipe books, kitchen accounts, and Italian art, literature, and film. He focuses on Italy's fascination with the tomato, painting a larger portrait of changing trends and habits that began with botanical practices in the sixteenth century and attitudes toward vegetables in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and concluded with the emergence of factory production in the nineteenth. Gentilcore continues with the transformation of the tomato into a national symbol during the years of Italian immigration and Fascism and examines the planetary success of the "Italian" tomato today, detailing its production, representation, and consumption.

Stephen Crane's Battles Leonaur Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Stephen Crane's Battles: Nine Decisive Battles Recounted by the Author of The Red Badge of Courage Stephen Crane's The Red Badge of Courage, written in 1895, propelled him to international fame and placed him justifiably in the pantheon of American Literature. His vivid portrayal of war caused him to be offered journalistic assignments in Cuba and in the Greek-Turkish war of 1897. Although Crane wrote broadly as a novelist, poet and journalist, it is, perhaps, not surprising that he was drawn to and commissioned to write on the subject of warfare. This book finds Crane applying his familiar style to nine accounts of conflict in which he considers not only the events, but the motives and emotions of the principal characters. The battles are drawn from the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and include the wars of Gustavus Adolphus, the wars of the Napoleonic age and those that reshaped Europe. This is a little known book, by a great writer on his principle theme. It is an invaluable resource for both military historians and those who study American literature.

Scrutiny vol. 6 1937-38 Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Scrutiny was first issued quarterly from Cambridge between 1932 and 1953, the principal editor throughout being Dr Leavis. It is now recognized as a formative influence on English intellectual and cultural life worthy to rank with the great reviews of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. This 2008 reissue is of the 1963 combined set, including a final volume containing an important Retrospect by Dr Leavis and a substantial analytical index. Scrutiny offers an almost complete critical history of English literature from Chaucer to the mid-twentieth century. Medieval literature, Shakespeare, the seventeenth-century poets, Pope, Dryden, Johnson, the great romantics, the Victorians, and nearly all the important modern writers are seriously examined. Many of the articles have become classics, and resulted in revisions of previously accepted views. An important feature of Scrutiny, still of great interest, is the book review section, where many of the important books of the time, and some of the pretentious ones too, were reviewed as they appeared.

Polin: Studies in Polish Jewry The Littman Library of Jewish Civilization

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This volume highlights new research on Jewish spiritual and religious life in Poland before modern political ideas, above all nationalism and socialism, began to transform the Jewish world. The collection as a whole represents a welcome new trend towards a more rigorous approach to the study of Jewish religious life and writings and covers a range of topics. Three articles deal with rabbinic writing and publishing in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries and a fourth presents accounts of Purim festivities at that time. The eighteenth-century studies focus on popular Jewish spirituality and Polish attitudes to Jewish spirituality. Four articles deal with the Frankist movement, the main topics being Frankist propaganda; non-Christian Frankists; Jonathan Eibeschuetz and the Frankists; and the influence of Frankism on Polish culture. There are four articles on hasidism-on the tsadik and the ba'al shem; the childhood of tsadikim in hasidic legends; the fall of the Seer of Lublin; and the hasidism of Gur-and one about influences on Nahman Krochmal. Four of the contributors to the core section on Jewish spiritual and religious life are Polish, representatives of a new generation of Judaic scholars there. Three are working in Germany, where Jewish studies is likewise re-establishing itself. Other contributors are leading scholars from universities in Canada, Israel, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Some are themselves religious, others are secular; taken together, their contributions further the study of Jewish religious traditions on the Polish lands, a topic central to an understanding of Jewish society and history in Poland but one which has long been considered marginal by the academic world. As in earlier volumes of Polin, substantial space is given to new research in other areas of Polish-Jewish studies. There is an extensive survey of the papal Holocaust papers, as well as contributions relating to education for girls, to Auschwitz as a site of memories, and to aspects of Jewish literature, politics, society, and economics. A young Polish scholar from Jedwabne has contributed a moving article on local reactions to news of the massacre of the Jews of that town. The review section include two separate essays with contrasting opinions on Yaffa Eliach's monumental study of Eishyshok. CONTRIBUTORS Eliyana R.

History of Witchcraft and Demonology - 2826848197

History of Witchcraft and Demonology Citadel Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Reverend Montague Summers was a Roman Catholic priest. However, his views on witchcraft and demonology differed considerably from those of Catholic encyclopedists and spokesmen of today. He is not ashamed of the greatest excesses committed in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. On the contrary, he vigorously defends everything the Church ever did to extirpate witchcraft and heresy. "The History of Witchcraft" is one of the classic works on witchcraft and demonology. Unlike other writers on the subject, Dr. Summers firmly believed in the concept world of Satanism and described its nefarious nature with tremendous gusto. This book was written from what critics have called a medieval viewpoint, an absolute and complete belief in witchcraft and, hence, in the supernatural. Among the subjects covered by Dr. Summers are: The Witch; Heretic and Anarchist; Demons and Familiars; the Sabbat; the Witch in Holy Writ; Diabolic Possession and Modern Spiritism; and the Witch in Dramatic Literature.

Port Royal, Vol. 1 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Port Royal, Vol. 1: A Contribution to the History of Religion and Literature in France The following volumes are an attempt to supply to English students a chapter of the History of Christianity heretofore unwritten. The Jansenist controversy of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries has, both in the subject and the conduct of the debate, a peculiar interest for Protestant readers. But to trace the progress of the quarrel from its origin in the "Augustinus" of Cornelius Jansen to its final extinction in France, and the establishment of that Jansenist Church of Holland which still maintains a precarious existence, would be a difficult, and in some respects, a thankless task; involving the necessity of weaving together the independent histories of French and Flemish Jansenism, and of chronicling an endless succession of wearisome word-combats, and still more wearisome intrigues.

Regeneration Through Violence Bay Foreign Language Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In "Regeneration Through Violence," the first of his trilogy on the mythology of the American West, Richard Slotkin shows how the attitudes and traditions that shape American culture evolved from the social and psychological anxieties of European settlers struggling in a strange new world to claim the land and displace the Native Americans. Using the popular literature of the seventeenth, eighteenth, and early nineteenth centuries-including captivity narratives, the Daniel Boone tales, and the writings of Hawthorne, Thoreau, and Melville-Slotkin traces the full development of this myth.
