Abstract

Dieses Buch unternimmt den innovativen Versuch, das Paradigma einer ökologisch orientierten Literaturwissenschaft mit Niklas Luhmanns Systemtheorie auf eine tragfähige theoretische Grundlage zu stellen. Zugleich wird unter den Auspizien der beiden Diskurse der Vorschlag gemacht, den Code des Kunstsystems neu zu fassen. Die Studie leistet damit mehreres: eine umfassende Einführung in das im deutschsprachigen Raum (noch) wenig bekannte Paradigma der ökologischen Literaturwissenschaft bzw. des »Ecocriticism«, eine perspektivenreiche Kombination von Systemtheorie und Literaturwissenschaft sowie eine Erprobung des theoretisch Erarbeiteten an ausgewählten Texten Peter Handkes.

Abstract

En la presente miscelánea se recogen estudios redactados por el autor a lo largo de más de cincuenta años de dedicación al esclarecimiento del texto hebreo-bíblico desde la perspectiva contextual cananeo-ugarítica. Organizados en tres grupos temáticos, los artículos tratan en líneas generales sobre cuestiones relacionadas con la interculturalidad sociorreligiosa, con la intertextualidad ugarítico-hebrea y con aspectos estilísticos y literarios de la Biblia hebrea. Por las reflexiones en torno a temas tan vigentes como los problemas de la traducción o el impacto del descubrimiento del Oriente antiguo en la cultura occidental, el interés de esta obra va más allá de los círculos de especialistas a quienes en principio va dirigida.

Abstract

This book presents in comprehensive fashion the extraordinary development of "Ariadne auf Naxos" from its conception to the final operatic version. The unique collaboration of Hofmannsthal and Strauss is examined and the classical myths that served as a basis for the libretto are investigated. The detailed analysis and interpretation of both the text and the music demonstrate that this work is epochal in the history of early nineteenth-century opera and commands central importance in the overall production of its authors.

Abstract

J. K. Rowling’s “ Harry Potter” series (1997–2007) has turned into a global phenomenon and her Potterverse is still expanding. The contributions in this volume provide a range of inter- and transdisciplinary approaches to various dimensions of this multifacetted universe. The introductory article focuses on different forms of world building in the novels, the translations, the film series and the fandom. Part I examines various potential sources for Rowling’s series in folklore, the Arthurian legend and Gothic literature. Further articles focus on parallels between the “Harry Potter” series and Celtic Druidism, the impact Victorian notions of gender roles have had on the representation of the Gaunt family, the reception of (medieval and Early Modern) history in the series and the influence of Christian concepts on the world view expressed in the novels.

Abstract

Bem mais que um relato sobre ultra-sonografia fetal em mulheres de camadas médias do Rio de Janeiro, a obra propõe uma reflexão refinada sobre o papel da tecnologia médica na (re)definição do corpo e da própria realidade em que vivemos. Os resultados, apresentados, contribuem para o debate sobre a construção do feto como pessoa mediada pela tecnologia de imagem.

Abstract

Originally published in 1951, this collaboration of two accomplished translators resulted in the first English verse translation of a major work of German literature. Rather than a translation of the entire poem, in this volume the translators present key passages connected by prose summaries, and include an introduction giving an overview of the work and its historical and literary context.

Abstract

Intersecando teoría postcolonial y gender studies, este volumen se encarga de fundar un territorio imaginario llamado ‘Queeramérica’, donde la ‘naturaleza’ es estudiado montaje, las fronteras son inciertas y las identidades ambiguas. Los cuerpos diferentes y diversamente orientados que deambulan por estas páginas son, sobre todo, ‘cuerpos locales’, emblemáticos de una manera inédita de desglosar el lema de lo local y ‘llevar’ el estigma periférico: cuerpos libertariamente desconfinados sin llegar a ser rendidos al discurso de la transitividad universal. Detectando un distintivo ‘giro queer’ en los quehaceres literarios hispanoamericanos a partir de los años 90 del pasado siglo, la investigación se concentra en las borrosas ‘visiones de Latinoamérica’ que, después de los mitos y el desencanto, empiezan a salir de los talleres de tres autorías fuertes del canon chileno: Pedro Lemebel, Diamela Eltit y Roberto Bolaño, los responsables de una versión productivamente torcida del ‘viejo y embustero cuento’ de la identidad hispanoamericana, los pioneros de un inédito lugar de la cultura en el que muchos escritores del nuevo milenio echarán raíces.

Abstract

Victorian literature is rife with scenes of madness, with mental disorder functioning as everything from a simple plot device to a commentary on the foundations of Victorian society. But while madness in Victorian fiction has been much studied, most scholarship has focused on the portrayal of madness in women; male mental disorder in the period has suffered comparative neglect. In ‘The Most Dreadful Visitation’, Valerie Pedlar redresses the balance. This extraordinary study explores a wide range of Victorian writings to consider the relationship between the portrayal of mental illness in literary works and the portrayal of similar disorders in the writings of doctors and psychologists. Pedlar presents in-depth studies of Dickens’s Barnaby Rudge, Tennyson’s Maud, Wilkie Collins’s Basil and Trollope’s He Knew He Was Right, considering each work in the context of Victorian understandings – and fears – of mental degeneracy.

Abstract

Comment (ré)aménager les espaces des bibliothèques, des learning centres aux relais lecture ? Réinterroger les modèles, mais aussi les expériences innovantes, identifier les partenaires, et surtout questionner tous ensemble les pratiques des publics, fidèles ou pas : tel est l'enjeu de ce livre, fruit des expériences partagées d'un collectif de spécialistes de la question, pour mettre l’aménagement au service du public. Cet ouvrage permet de comprendre, maîtriser et organiser le déroulement du processus de (ré)aménagement et de connaitre le rôle et les responsabilités de chaque acteur du projet, pour « co-construire un projet qui s’appuie autant sur le management que sur l’aménagement. »

Abstract

Scholars have recently begun to study collections of Byzantine historical excerpts as autonomous pieces of literature. This book focuses on a series of minor collections that have received little or no scholarly attention, including the Epitome of the Seventh Century, the Excerpta Anonymi (tenth century), the Excerpta Salmasiana (eighth to eleventh centuries), and the Excerpta Planudea (thirteenth century). Three aspects of these texts are analysed in detail: their method of redaction, their literary structure, and their cultural and political function. Combining codicological, literary, and political analyses, this study contributes to a better understanding of the intertwining of knowledge and power, and suggests that these collections of historical excerpts should be seen as a Byzantine way of rewriting history.
