Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

It will come as a surprise to many that a wealth of Gothic art and architecture can still be found in Ireland. This text examines the most westerly expression of Gothic - on the edge of Europe - and traces its development from the beginning of the 13th century to the Reformation. Colum Hourihane offers insights into Gothic Irish art, and he presents a revised view of art in Ireland in the Middle Ages. Brought to Ireland by the Anglo-Normans and religious reform movements, the style was adopted and adapted locally, first appearing in monastic architecture and subsequently in the other arts. Hourihane looks at what survives of Gothic art in Ireland, examines previously unknown material, and discusses such wide-ranging topics as the historiography of the style, its metalwork, iconography and forms.

In this wide-ranging, eloquent book, Paul Binski sheds new light on one of the greatest periods of English art and architecture, offering ground-breaking arguments about the role of invention, making and the powers of Gothic art. His richly documented study locates what became known as the Decorated Style within patterns of commissioning, designing and imagining whose origins lay in pre-Gothic art. By examining notions of what was extraordinary, re-evaluating medieval ideas of authorship, and restoring economic considerations to the debate, Binski sets English visual art of the early 14th century in a broad European context and also within the aesthetic discourses of the medieval period. The author, stressing the continuum between art and architecture, challenges understandings about agency, modernity, hierarchy and marginality. His book makes a powerful case for the restoration of the category of the aesthetic to the understanding of medieval art. Generously illustrated with hundreds of images, Binski traces the impact of English art in Continental Europe, ending with the Black Death and the literary uses of the architectural in Geoffrey Chaucer and other writers.

Plotting Gothic University of Chicago Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A historian of medieval art and architecture with a rich appreciation of literary studies, Stephen Murray brings all those fields to bear in presenting a new way of understanding the great Gothic churches of the twelfth and thirteenth centuries: as rhetorical constructs. Plotting Gothic begins by positioning the rhetoric of the Gothic as a series of plots, or stories intended for visitors, then extends that concept to the relationship between a building, its audience, and the many interlocutors involved in that relationship, such as builders, scholars, tour guides, and resident clergy. What were the rhetorical common places that such interlocutors used to interpret the Gothic when it was new? Drawing on building records and personal recollections of architects and churchmen, Murray traces common analogies between rhetoric and architectural space that date back to late antiquity, then shows how those links were translated into wood, stone, and space under specific local conditions. The resulting book offers an invigorating new way to understand some of the most lasting achievements of the medieval era.

Opis - Pierwsze na świecie świadectwo ofiary zbrodni honorowej. Miała siedemnaście lat i zakochała się: zhańbiła rodzinę. Więc rodzina wydała na nią wyrok śmierci... Pokochała go pierwszą miłością. Myślała, że się z nią ożeni. Ale ukochany zniknął, a ona odkryła, że jest w ciąży. A w jej świecie to najcięższa zbrodnia... W zapomnianej przez Boga wiosce w Cisjordanii kobiety są warte mniej niż zwierzęta domowe. Tu mężczyzna jest panem życia i śmierci żony, córki, siostry. Brat może bezkarnie zabić siostrę, matka - córkę, kolejną bezużyteczną dziewczynkę, jaka się urodzi. Tu kobiecie odbiera się godność, a nawet życie zgodnie z odwiecznym obyczajem i uświęconą tradycją. A śmierć jest karą dla dziewczyny, która zhańbi rodzinę. Tak jak Souad. Wyrok wydaje jej ojciec. Szwagier dokonuje egzekucji. Oblewa Souad benzyną i podpala... SOUAD przeżyła - cudem, ale rodzina usiłowała zabić ją nawet w szpitalu. Na zawsze jednak pozostanie straszliwie okaleczona - na ciele i duszy. I wciąż musi się ukrywać; dopóki żyje, jej rodzinę okrywa hańba. Spalona żywcem, opublikowana pod pseudonimem szokująca opowieść o piekle, jakim było jej dzieciństwo i młodość, stała się międzynarodowym bestsellerem. Wydana w 37 w krajach książka przerywa tabu milczenia wobec istniejącej nadal w krajach muzułmańskich barbarzyńskiej tradycji. Nieludzkiego obyczaju, prawa mężczyzn, na mocy którego co najmniej pięć tysięcy kobiet pada co roku ofiarą zbrodni honorowej. Nazwa - Spalona Żywcem Wyd.

Religious Art in France, XIII Century Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Religious Art in France, XIII Century: A Study in Mediaeval Iconography and Its Sources of Inspiration To the Middle Ages art was didactic. All that it was necessary that men should know - the history of the world from the creation, the dogmas of religion, the examples of the saints, the hierarchy of the virtues, the range of the sciences, arts and crafts - all these were taught them by the windows of the church or by the statues in the porch. The pathetic name of Biblia pauperum given by the printers of the fifteenth century to one of their earliest books, might well have been given to the church. There the simple, the ignorant, all who were named "sancta plebs Dei," learned through their eyes almost all they knew of their faith. Its great figures, so spiritual in conception, seemed to bear speaking witness to the truth of the Church's teaching. The countless statues, disposed in scholarly design, were a symbol of the marvellous order that through the genius of St. Thomas Aquinas reigned in the;, world of thought. Through the medium of art the highest conceptions of theologian and scholar penetrated to some extent the minds of even the humblest of the people. But the meaning of these profound works gradually became obscure. New generations, with a different conception of the world, no longer understood them, and from the second half of the sixteenth century medieval art became an enigma. Symbolism, the soul of Gothic art, was dead. The Church was ashamed of the once beloved legends, in which for so many centuries Christianity had been nurtured. The council of Trent marks the end of the old artistic tradition, and we know from a book full of the spirit of the council, that the writer - Molanus the theologian - had lost the key to the art of the Middle Ages. In the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries the Benedictines of Saint-Maur, when writing of the ancient churches of France, displayed an ignorance which was anything but creditable to their order's reputation for learning. In his Monuments de la monarchie française Montfaucon reads into the cathedral facades scenes from the history of France and portraits of her kings. And what can one say of those who speak of Gothic bas-reliefs and statues as they might speak of the antiquities of India.

Doctor Who and the Art of Adaptation Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

Although it started as a British television show with a small but devoted fan base, Doctor Who has grown in popularity and now appeals to audiences around the world. In the fifty-year history of the program, Doctor Who's producers and scriptwriters have drawn on a dizzying array of literary sources and inspirations. Elements from Homer, classic literature, gothic horror, swashbucklers, Jacobean revenge tragedies, Orwellian dystopias, Westerns, and the novels of Agatha Christie and Evelyn Waugh have all been woven into the fabric of the series. One famous storyline from the mid-1970s was rooted in the Victoriana of authors like H. Rider Haggard and Arthur Conan Doyle, and another was a virtual remake of Anthony Hope's The Prisoner of Zenda-with robots! In Doctor Who and the Art of Adaptation: Fifty Years of Storytelling, Marcus Harmes looks at the show's frequent exploration of other sources to create memorable episodes. Harmes observes that adaptation in Doctor Who is not just a matter of transferring literary works to the screen, but of bringing a diversity of texts into dialogue with the established mythology of the series as well as with longstanding science fiction tropes. In this process, original stories are not just resituated, but transformed into new works. Harmes considers what this approach reveals about adaptation, television production, the art of storytelling, and the long-term success and cultural resonance enjoyed by Doctor Who. Doctor Who and the Art of Adaptation will be of interest to students of literature and television alike, and to scholars interested in adaptation studies. It will also appeal to fans of the series interested in tracing the deep cultural roots of television's longest-running and most literate science-fiction adventure.

Black Roads Quinnipiac University Press

Ireland's Great Hunger Museum at Quinnipiac University publishes Famine Folios, a unique resource for students, scholars and researchers, as well as general readers, covering many aspects of the Famine in Ireland from 1845-1852 - the worst demographic catastrophe of nineteenth-century Europe. The essays are interdisciplinary in nature, and make available new research in Famine studies by internationally established scholars in history, art history, cultural theory, philosophy, media history, political economy, literature and music. The Great Hunger was the most gothic event in Ireland's history and has haunted Irish literature ever since. In the struggle to resist the diminishment of this tragic episode in Ireland's colonial history, Irish Gothic writers preserved the memory of the Famine when a general silence prevailed among historians and authors of the Victorian novel. Both Irish Gothic literature and the work of the modernists (Joyce, Yeats and Beckett) resonate with the cultural memory of the suffering of millions, either lying in unmarked graves or forcibly transplanted to a harsh new world. Black Roads traces the impact of the Famine on Irish literature from William Carlton's The Black Prophet (from which the title is taken) to more contemporary work by authors like Patrick McCabe, Seamus Heaney and Eavan Boland, and playwrights like Tom Murphy, Conor MacPherson and Marina Carr. Post Famine, Black Roads argues, all Irish literature is about the Famine, leaving the discussion about what 'Irishness' means centred on what Seamus Deane described as 'what the Famine means.'

PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION NOTE OF ACKNOWLEDGMENT PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION I. WHAT PATTERN IS Pattern not understood The meaning of the word "Comes of repetition, and is closely connected with manufacture" Has always a geometric basis Use and necessity of system in design "Lines inevitable, and must not be left to chance" II. THE SQUARE Geometry the basis of all pattern Breaks in the simple stripe give cross-lines "Hence the lattice and the chequer, on which a vast variety of pattern is built" III. THE TRIANGLE The square lattice crossed by diagonal lines gives the triangle Hence the diamond "And out of that the hexagon, the star, and other geometric units familiar in Arab diaper" IV. THE OCTAGON Four series of lines give the octagon "Not the unit of a complete pattern, but the basis of some radiating patterns" "More complicated cross-lines, giving sixteen and eighteen sided figures, result in more elaborate pattern, but involve no new principle " Pentagon pattern really built on simple trellis lines V. THE CIRCLE The circle gives no new plan but only curvilinear versions of the foregoing The wave a rounded zig-zag The honeycomb compressed circles "Segments of circles give scale pattern, a curvilinear variation upon diamond" The ogee The circle itself a scaffolding for design VI. THE EVOLUTION OF PATTERN Various starting points for the same pattern Six ways in which it might have been evolved The construction of sundry geometric diapers Influence of material upon design Some complex lattices VII. BORDERS What a border is "Includes frieze, pilster, frame, &c." Simplicity Short interval of repeat Flowing and broken borders Mere lines "Stop" borders" Frets Evolute Zig-zag Chevron Undulate Guilloche Interlacing Chain Strap Branching lines Spiral scroll Counterchange Intermittent borders Block border Panel border The S scroll Natural growth Enclosed borders "Fringes, &c." Strong and weak side of border Direction of border Corners and their influence upon design Circular and concentric borders VIII. PRACTICAL PATTERN PLANNING Possible and practicable lines of pattern construction Lines often fixed for the designer Conditions of production affect plan "Triangular plan, oriental" "Rectangular plan, western" Relation of one plan to the other Of triangular and octagonal repeat to rectangular Possibilities of the diamond Design regulated by proportions of repeat IX. THE TURNOVER A weaver's device Doubles width of pattern Exact turnover not desirable where conditions do not make it necessary Balance must be preserved Use of doubling over in border design Suited to stenciling and pouncing X. "THE "DROP" REPEAT" Scope given by drop repeat Designed on diamond lines And on the square Geometrically same result Practically different patterns Opportunity of carrying pattern beyond width of stuff Brick or masonry plan Octagonal plan Step pattern False drop XI. SMALLER REPEATS Width of repeat divisible into width of material Repeat two-thirds or two-fifths of width of material Full width repeat seeming smaller Variety in apparent uniformity Weavers' ways of doing it Same principle applied to larger design Method and haphazard More complicated system Other plans for disguising precise order of small repeats XII. SUNDRY SCAFFOLDINGS Importance of variety of plan Area of pattern not confined to area of repeat Excursions compensated by incursions Lines thus disguised "Wave-lines, turned over, result in ogee" Wave-lines result from working within narrow upright lines Uprightness of narrow repeats counteracted by lines across Diagonal wavelines to connect features forming horizontal band Designs obviously based upon slanting and horizontal lines Wave-line from side to side of broad repeat Scaffolding of an old Louis XVI. Pattern XIII. THE TURN-ROUND Unit of design may be turned part way round Unit of 6 by 6 inches results in repeat of 12 by 12 inches Works either on the straight or as a drop For radiating pattern a triangle half size of smaller square suffices for unit Fold and fold again Arab lattice pattern dissected XIV. HOW TO SET ABOUT DESIGN Free patterns planned on formal lines Features recur at intervals determined by unit of repeat Planning the only way to avoid unforseen effects Means of disguising formal lines Necessity for system Genesis of counter-change border Of geometric diaper How not to do it Detail not to be determined too soon Genesis of conventional floral pattern starting with the masses Of a drop pattern Of a pattern stating with line Of a floral pattern starting with distribution of flowers Of a velvet pattern starting with severe lines "Inhabited" pattern" Evolution of Italian arabesque pilaster Animal form in pattern Starting at a venture And from an idea Afterthoughts XV. TO PROVE A PATTERN The unit of design a repeat Repeat to be tested One repeat not enough to show how design works More must be indicated Test of roughing out on one plan and working out on another Accurate fit essential Proving to be done at early stage of design Test of cutting up drawing and rearranging the parts XVI. PATTERN PLANNING IN RELATION TO TECHNIQUE Dimensions of design determined by conditions of manufacture Possibilities in block printing Limitations in weaving Narrow repeat a condition of Sponging down Colour designs in colour from the first Colour as a help in complicated design Form and colour Design only a map of form and colour Precaution against self-deception The evolution of a design Tracing paper Accident Mechanical helps Hardness Precision essential Body colour Water colour Systematic use of mixed tints Working drawing only a means to an end. XIX. COLOUR Close connection between form and colour Effect of colour upon design Drawing should show not merely effect of colour but its plan A map of colour value and relation Differences that colour makes Casual colour Colour and material "Geometric form softened by colour, accidental or cunningly planned" Confusion of form by colour Emphasis of form by colour Change of colour in ground XX.

About "The Oval Portrait" of Edgar Allan Poe GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Essay from the year 2012 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Stuttgart, language: English, abstract: Edgar Allan Poe is one of the most famous and celebrated American writers whose short stories inspired numerous other authors. The Oval Portrait, initially titled Life in Death, is a revised and shorter version that was published in the Broadway Journal in 1845.Although being one of his shortest stories, Poe is able to establish in The Oval Portrait a haunting atmosphere of terror. The fate of the beautiful, young woman fascinates the narrator who is entirely taken by the enigmatic painting and the inscrutable circumstances of the lady's death. It is in this way that the author is able to create simultaneously a sense of both mystery and tragedy, and this essay will examine in greater detail howthese two elements are combined in order to make up the Gothic mood typical for Poe's writings.Firstly, I will have a look at the author and his background before providing some general information about this short story. In this case, a biographical approach to The Oval Portrait is very enriching and is able to shed light on some aspects, as we will see later on. Secondly, I will concentrate on the appearance of the mysterious atmosphere in the work, such as the narrator's equivocal reliability, the mansion and its relation to the Gothic, the role of light and darkness, and the open questions. My third point of analysis will be the tragic: how is Poe able tomake both the story's narrator and his readers be captivated by such a sad woman's death withinless than four pages? To begin with, I will focus on the painter and his obsession with his art, aswell as the dilemma whether the latter is inevitably irreconcilable with life. Then the woman'soutward appearance, that is her surpassing loveliness, will be linked to what Poe himself saysabout the role of beauty and horror in his work Philosophy of Composition.Furthermore, James Twitchell's interpretation of The Oval Portrait will be taken into account.

Bosch: The Garden of Earthly Delights ANTIQUE COLLECTORS CLUB

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This new series examines several highly regarded masterpieces in an attempt to unravel the mysteries that surround them. Through an innovative concept and a fresh approach, 'Art Mysteries', edited by Marco Carminati and Stefano Zuffi, presents an up-to-date and spectacular reading of famous paintings, investigating key clues that suggest previously unknown background information. What we know about the life of Hieronymus Bosch gives us no inkling whatsoever of the explosion of fantasy, the weird and wonderful world, and the bizarre devilry in his oeuvre. The destination and function of his most important works are still a complete mystery. What was the purpose of the triptychs populated by seething masses of figures? Who could have immersed themselves in that world of symbols, references and allusions? The master's undisputed masterpiece, 'The Garden of Earthly Delights', is still linked to Gothic imagery but, at the same time, already embraces the extraordinary innovations of the sixteenth century, including the geographical discoveries in the Americas, from the Caribbean archipelago to Brazil, and in southern Africa.
