Abstract

2014 and 2016, marked by the 450th anniversary of his birthday and the 400th anniversary of his demise respectively, have both been dedicated to the remembrance of William Shakespeare and the celebration of his work through readings, theater productions, movies, exhibitions, and many academic events. He is fondly called the “Bard” by many and has long been England's export hit. Shakespeare gained lasting fame and fortune during his lifetime not only by successfully moving his audience, but also because from the beginning his work inspired critical and artistic dialogue. The ingenuity and uniqueness of his work did not fail to inspire the creative imagination of successive generations of authors, artists, and musicians over the past four and a half centuries. In fact, each generation has reimagined and recreated Shakespeare in its own different way, bringing its own interpretation, themes, fashion, taste, and customs to the rereading, visualization, and intonation of his work. The brand “Shakespeare” is still as popular and productive as ever. A fact that is apparent not only in the huge numbers of visitors yearly to Stratford upon Avon and Verona, the city of Shakespeare's tragic-romance Romeo and Juliet, but also in the long line of movies produced based on his plays each year. One might even go as far as to assert that it is the generations of productive readers and their own unique creative interpretations that have kept the Bard alive over the past 450 years. This collection of essays celebrates Shakespeare’s two big anniversaries and takes the opportunity to look at him from a different perspective, as a source of inspiration and, for a change, to explore the eclectic results of centuries of productive reception of his work from the Elizabethan era up to the 21rst century.

Abstract

Este trabalho, marcado por um grande entusiasmo científico e uma investigação muito séria e rigorosa, sobre a novidade do conceito de narrativa histórica de Paul Ricoeur, tem como eixo central a relação entre narrativa histórica e verdade de facto nas conceções históricas de Tucídides e Ricoeur. A grande questão que alimenta todo este trabalho científico é a seguinte: sendo a poética histórica uma mimese da ação humana, será que ela se reduz, contra as teses do positivismo histórico, a mero artefacto literário? Qual o verdadeiro contributo de Paul Ricoeur para uma mediação entre as duas teses mais célebres sobre o discurso histórico: ciência ideográfica ou nomotética? Se a grande tese de Ricoeur é a de que a história é um discurso que visa sempre, através de um método científico e crítico, a verdade dos factos, embora não possa dispensar a imaginação, como compreender a relação entre história e ficção em Tucídides? São as categorias da mimese I, II e III de Ricoeur que Martinho soares aplica a Tucídides, no sentido de com elas apreender, testar e compreender a dimensão da prefiguração – valorizando a história e a memória, o semeion e o tekmerion –; a da configuração narrativa, que implica uma reflexão sobre ação e tempo humano, condensado na narrativa – o que torna pertinente a aproximação Tucídides/Aristóteles –; e, finalmente, a da refiguração, pela qual ao leitor é feito ver o passado como um “tua res agitur”, quiçá, de dimensões trágicas.

Abstract

"Now a byword for beauty, Verdi’s operas were far from universally acclaimed when they reached London in the second half of the nineteenth century. Why did some critics react so harshly? Who were they and what biases and prejudices animated them? When did their antagonistic attitude change? And why did opera managers continue to produce Verdi’s operas, in spite of their alleged worthlessness? Massimo Zicari’s Verdi in Victorian London reconstructs the reception of Verdi’s operas in London from 1844, when a first critical account was published in the pages of The Athenaeum, to 1901, when Verdi’s death received extensive tribute in The Musical Times. In the 1840s, certain London journalists were positively hostile towards the most talked-about representative of Italian opera, only to change their tune in the years to come. The supercilious critic of The Athenaeum, Henry Fothergill Chorley, declared that Verdi’s melodies were worn, hackneyed and meaningless, his harmonies and progressions crude, his orchestration noisy. The scribes of The Times, The Musical World, The Illustrated London News, and The Musical Times all contributed to the critical hubbub. Yet by the 1850s, Victorian critics, however grudging, could neither deny nor ignore the popularity of Verdi’s operas. Over the final three decades of the nineteenth century, moreover, London’s musical milieu underwent changes of great magnitude, shifting the manner in which Verdi was conceptualized and making room for the powerful influence of Wagner. Nostalgic commentators began to lament the sad state of the Land of Song, referring to the now departed ""palmy days of Italian opera."" Zicari charts this entire cultural constellation. Verdi in Victorian London is required reading for both academics and opera aficionados. Music specialists will value a historical reconstruction that stems from a large body of first-hand source material, while Verdi lovers and Italian opera addicts will enjoy vivid analysis free from technical jargon. For students, scholars and plain readers alike, this book is an illuminating addition to the study of music reception."

Abstract

Despite its tensions and contradictions, the various discourses on globalization hint at a desire to build a space and time for encounters between worlds and cultures, through the persistence of a dialogue that shortens the distances, but respects the differences. A considerable part of the political, cultural, urban, linguistic shape of the Western world drew inspirations and solutions from the experience of poleis and cosmopoleis of the Ancient World. On the other hand, mobility may even be perceived as a characteristic feature of Luso-Brazilian culture, from the Portuguese Discoveries and their cultural production in the early stages of Jesuit literature in Brazil, especially in José de Anchieta, down to António Vieira, Machado de Assis, Guimarães Rosa, among others. Therefore, the presence and the different hues respecting the topic of mobility and of old cosmopoleis in the reception of Classical Antiquity in Portuguese literature are as well a central theme of the volume.

Abstract

Comment lit-on spécifiquement un poème ? En quoi consiste la réception des œuvres poétiques ? Comment former les lecteurs à cette expérience, depuis l’école jusqu’à l’université ? Telles sont les questions que pose cet ouvrage issu du travail mené dans le cadre du séminaire Enseigner le Théâtre et la Poésie d’Aujourd’hui de l’UMR Litt&Arts (Litextra) de Grenoble où depuis 2012, poètes, éditeurs, médiateurs, chercheurs et enseignants font le pari qu’une rencontre féconde entre le poème et le sujet lecteur est possible. Mais cela suppose que le récepteur soit reconnu comme une personne, avec ses émotions, sa culture, ses connaissances, son histoire, ses points de vue. Les contributeurs interrogent ici des corpus variés, de Verlaine à la poésie numérique, des œuvres écrites et des productions orales, ainsi que des pratiques effectives de classes diverses. Ils proposent également un éclairage sur des dispositifs particuliers visant l’accès à l’expérience poétique d’un plus grand nombre de lecteurs. Enfin, cette publication donne la parole à des poètes, une traductrice, un éditeur, une parole qui dans ses singularités offre un écho de premier ordre aux préoccupations d’une didactique en plein devenir.

Abstract

The volume presents a collection of papers which clearly document a theological paradigm shift during the decades after World War II. Protestant, Catholic and Jewish experts from various specialist fields of theology, such as biblical scholarship (Old Testament and New Testament), liturgics, feminist and systematic theology, as well as Jewish studies provide a diverse picture of the theological change from anti-Jewish polemics to a respectful dialogue with Judaism. Moreover, the publication offers an insight into the biographical developments of the scholars involved, and through this a piece of reflective history of theology.
