Gender, Violence, and the Past in Edda and Saga Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Gender, Violence, and the Past in Edda and Saga is the first book to investigate both the relation between gender and violence in the Old Norse Poetic Edda and key family and contemporary sagas, and the interrelated nature of these genres. Beginning with an analysis of eddaic attitudes to heroic violence and its gendered nature through the figures of Gudrun and Helgi, the study broadens out to the whole poetic compilation and how the past (and particularly the mythological past) inflects the heroic present. This paves the way for a consideration of the comparable relationship between the heroic poems themselves and later reworkings of them or allusions to them in the family and contemporary sagas. The book's thematic concentration on gender/sexuality and violence, and its generic concentration on Poetic Edda and later texts which rework or allude to it, enable a diverse but coherent exploration of both key and neglected Norse texts and the way in which their authors display a dual fascination with and rejection of heroic vengeance.

Drastic Dislocations: New and Selected Poems NYQ Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"Drastic Dislocations" is the title poem of the section of new poems in this SELECTED POEMS by Barry Wallenstein, and this title is consistent with many of his concerns registered in the poetry he began writing in his teens. His first publications were in the old TRANSATLANTIC REVIEW in 1964, but it wasn't until 1977 that BOA Editions published his first book of poems, BEAST IS A WOLF WITH BROWN FIRE. This new volume includes the author's choices from each of his six previous books, poems reflecting the socio-political life of the time as well as the perennial, transcendent themes of eros and thanatos. For the past 40 years this poet, who was also a professor of modern poetry at the City University of New York for that many years, has worked closely with jazz artists in the performance and recording of his work. The late poet William Matthews noted about Wallenstein's poetry, "There is an off-handed canniness of phrasing about these poems, a way of registering both emotional freight and the time it takes to carry it, that identifies a Barry Wallenstein poem right away. It's a tribute, I suspect, to his lifelong love of jazz, and the source of both jazz and poetry, the syncopated heart." Another poet, Alicia Ostriker said, "Barry Wallenstein's voice is unique in American poetry: magic, seductive, cryptic, more than a little frightening, as if some perfume from the Les Fleurs du Mal clung to its overtones." As if extending this observation, the poet and critic, M. L. Rosenthal wrote about this poetry, "[it's] a pure distillation, vivid, buoyant, and serious. What it distills is the whole psyche of an illusionless dreamer, a man of the present moment, very American yet a blood-brother to modern Mediterranean poets as well."

"Hoa Nguyen's poems probe dailiness to divorce us from our base assumptions about how language might present the world to us. Her poems comprise some of the most inviting lyrics I've found in a living poet."--Bookslut "Phrase by phrase Nguyen's work can be conversational, playful, funny, angry, acutely self-aware, and loaded with sensory information."--Anselm Berrigan, from the introduction Red Juice represents a decade of poems written roughly between 1998 and 2008, previously only available in small-run handmade chapbooks, journals, and out-of-print books. This collection of early poems by Vietnamese American poet Hoa Nguyen showcases her feminist ecopoetics and unique style, all lyrical in the post-modern tradition. [BUDDHA'S EARS ARE DROOPY TOUCH HIS SHOULDERS] Buddha's ears are droopy touch his shoulders as scarves fly out of windows and I shriek at the lotus of enlightenment Travel to Free Street past Waco to the hole in the Earth wearing water I'm aiming my mouth for apple pie Born in the Mekong Delta and raised in the Washington, DC, area, Hoa Nguyen studied Poetics at New College of California in San Francisco. With the poet Dale Smith, Nguyen founded Skanky Possum, a poetry journal and book imprint.

"The weft of this excellent, imaginatively titled volume sparkles with individualistic variations like the myriad facets of a tapestry by Klimt. And yet these six accomplished poets have strung the warp with a golden fiber of subtle, reflective regional consistency." CHARLOTTE SCHOFIELD poet, writer, and author of The Attention Deficit Memoir From the Land of Enchantment and old Route 66 come six poets who gather semi-monthly to read the work of others more famous, then write and critique their own. In this volume you will read a selection from the best of these poems written over the ten-year period of the existence of this group called Fresh Ink New Mexico. "A collection of poems both thoughtful and beautiful, sure to illuminate, awaken, and delight the discerning reader." SEAN MURPHY author of The Time of New Weather, and The Hope Valley Hubcap King. "In this new collection 'where memories protrude in ancient bones and deep arroyos knife through mesas' the poems traverse landscapes as diverse as those of the fabled highway Route 66. Just off the road 'honey mesquite blooms.' Sandhill cranes forage, coyotes prowl and a 'spotted horse gallops in spirals' while 'yucca and chamisa stand silent witness.' "Closer to home a drunken black widow spider spins a skewered web. A poet laments the senseless death of nine Iraqi boys on a soccer field. Famished men 'set snares for wild chickens they'd heard scratching in the brush.' "Here are poems that strive to understand and commemorate the land, the heart, love, memory, the past, the present and all points in-between." MARILYN STABLEIN winner of the New Mexico Book Award for Splitting Hard Ground.

Excerpt from Glanlua and Other Poems Glanlua. Prologue. With drooping head, in lingering dream, round the shadowy world, Dawn's light steps awake her not, Night lay dimly curl'd! Timidly the Dawn looked back and whispered to the Day, "See who lingers past her hour, hasten thy bright ray, Earth is longing for thy light." Day with sudden eyes Came and looked upon the Night, who seized with swift surprise, Over land and ocean breathed a vapour white, Hidden in the coils whereof safe she made her flight. Sunrise and a summer morning - gleams of glassy sea, Jagged cliffs and crystal waters, mists that rise and flee! Wider grow the opening spaces as the silent tide of light Winds in golden flood triumphant thro' the silver wreck of night. And, behold, emerging slowly from the whiteness one by one, On the ocean many a galley hails the rising sun.

Now, Then OxfordPoets

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Illusions and delusions, joys and jokes, mysteries of memory and temporal paradox figure in Andrew McNeillie's collection. Here are sequences of bird poems, and tree poems, lines from an autobiography, lines from America, and poems about old age, in elegiac, ironic, and even vitriolic mode. These poems are about being and longing, belonging and not belonging in the world, past or present, now or then. They are about having and not having a home to go to. Haunted by the rapt, rural and wilderness gaze of childhood, youth and young manhood, the poems in "Now, Then" express worlds and times past of immediate sensual being and seeing "then" - "bubble-rapt" - in a "sound-warp a dipper submerged in a rushing pool" - before the world caught up with their author: now counting his blessings, cursing his luck as time flies faster in life's dark wood.


Hippota Nestor - 2826840570

Hippota Nestor Harvard University, Center for Hellenic Studies

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book is about the Homeric figure Nestor. This study is important because it reveals a level of deliberate irony in the Homeric poems that has hitherto not been suspected, and because Nestor's role in the poems, which is built on this irony, is a key to the circumstances of the poems' composition. Nestor's stories about the past, especially his own youth, often lack purpose on the surface of the poems, but with a slight shift of focus they provide a deep commentary on the present action of both poems. Nestor's Homeric epithet, hippota, 'the horseman', permits the necessary refocus. The combination of epithet and name, hippota Nestor, has Indo-European roots, as a comparison with Vedic Sanskrit shows. Interpreted in the context of the Indo-European twin myth, Nestor's role clearly points beyond itself to the key question in Homeric studies: the circumstances of the poems' composition. Nestor has a special relation to Ionia, where the Homeric poems were composed, and through Ionia to early Athens. The relationship between the Ionian city of Miletus and early Athens is particularly important. In addition to the role of these cities, the location of Nestor's city Pylos, an ancient conundrum, is sharply illuminated by this new interpretation of Nestor's Homeric role.

Urban Aboriginals and the relation to their cultural heritage GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

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.

IntroductionThe present volume of Cracow Indological Studies contains articles addressing different issues pertaining to a broadly formulated subject Histoiy and Society as Described in Indian Literature and Art. Its first part (Cracow Indological Studies, vol. 14) was devoted to visual and performing arts, as obviously the interpretation of sculptures, paintings, objects of craft as well as film art cannot be neglected while searching for pieces of information providing a better insight into the ancient and modern histoiy of India. The articles presented in the second part use literary sources in order to examine diverse aspects of the past and present. Similarly to the first part, which contains in its subtitle the Sanskrit word drsya-‘what should be looked at’-and in this way brings together the varied phenomena which can be described by this term, starting from ancient Indian theatrical art and finishing with modem Indian cinematography, the present volume’s subtitle also refers to the indigenous Indian theory of literature, using the Sanskrit word sravya or ‘what should be listened to’, ‘what is worth listening to’. This term covers both poetry and prose compositions. The authors of this particular volume bring manifold literary works, among them also scientific treatises and scriptures, which ‘should be listened to’ to readers’ attention and analyse them in order to have a better understanding of Indian society and culture. The essentially plural identity of Indian literature is represented in this volume by the pan-Indian Sanskrit literary tradition, Hindi literary culture encompassing the North of India and the most important and ancient among the South Indian Dravidic literatures, namely Tamil writings. The specialists explore a great number of issues: the relations between writing, history and ideology, gender, class, changing sensibilities, discourse and language-to name only a few.The opening article by Tiziana Pontillo introduces the fascinating question of asceticism as a permanent life choice. The authoress quotes Raghuvamsa passages regarding renunciation as a praiseworthy act rather than an obvious course of life. She focuses on two relevant passages from the Buddhacarita: one of them presents Buddha’s father, whose lineage probably did not observe the brahmanic varna- srama system, however wishing that his son would go successively through prescribed stages of life and not renounce the world too early. Indeed, Asvaghosa’s work reflects the socio-religious conflict between the brahmanic inclusivistic theory of four ordered stages of life and the Buddhist encouragement to renounce the world (here the latter path is unusually called arsamarga). The article elaborates also on the term suksma dharma, interpreting it as an ‘uncertain common dharma path’, constituting the point of departure for both, the true Buddhist dharma and the brahmanic srauta reform.The next paper, “Political Metaphors in the Mahakavya. The Conceptual Metaphor THE STATE IS THE HUMAN BODY in Magha’s Sisupala- vadha”, authored by Anna Trynkowska, applies cognitive linguistics methods in order to study the metaphor. The selected stanzas concern politics, a subject which appears prominently in Sanskrit court poems, and the conceptual metaphor under discussion is “the state is the human body”. Trynkowska shows it in the relevant passages of Magha’s poem entitled Sisupalavadha. Perhaps it is not surprising that the majority of examples provided by Magha focus on the condition of the state and its stability. The fitness of the human body is mapped onto political stability and the power of functional elements of the state. Political enemies are conceptualized here in terms of diseases, causing an inappropriate condition of the human body. There are also stanzas naming these dangerous diseases, consumption being referred to most frequently. Trynkowska presents the set of mappings used in these metaphors, specifying the categories in the source domain (the human body, its structure and condition as well as the causes of an inappropriate condition of the body and their remedies) and the corresponding functional elements of the state in the target domain. The proposed method of analysis sheds more light on the structure of such stylistic devices and helps in a better understanding and noticing of their specific features.The epic poem which Tomasz Winiarski discusses is the famous Raghuvamsa by Kalidasa. The author has identified a very interesting passage in its sixteenth canto (verses 4-24), which presents a dying capital city in a very specific way. The main stress is on the role of the female characters in the description. Step by step Winiarski introduces the reader into the sophisticated technique implied by Kalidasa, namely the process of deconstructing/reconstructing the image of the city, a subtle play between reality and illusion, the past and present, light and darkness. The images stereotypical and characteristic of kavya literature are put into an unusual context and combined in unusual ways. As Winiarski points out, taking kavya works as the source of knowledge “may be deceptive if one wants to know what the physical reality and the form of a city was”, but “it is a valid and maybe the only source to answer the question of what it meant for Indians of that time. (...) the way urban life was rendered in stories and poetry was, and still is, a way to fully understand what the city was, how to be a part of it, and how to preserve its existence and meaning.”The following two papers deal with the Sanskrit historiography in South India.Rajendran Chettiarthodi examines the Musikavamsa, a poem written in the 11th century by Atula, as an example of sanskritization of regional history. Choosing Sanskrit as his medium and the mahakavya as a form of expression Atula made an attempt to enhance the prestige of his patron, king Srikantha of the Musika dynasty ruling over North Kerala (...)
