Description:
This thoroughly scholarly work has two main purposes: to examine how traditional rules and forms stand up against current German practice, and to present the complexities of the language in as concise a form as possible - while avoiding any pretence that German has no inconsistencies. The author has clearly worked hard to make his "Grammar" an accurate reflection of German as written and spoken today.A valuable textbook which has become a standard work in the German departments of many universities and colleges of education.

Description:
In Yeats and The Occult Professor Harper and thirteen contributors demonstrate that Yeats's life and creative art would have been different, and most certainly poorer, without the occult experiences recorded and described in his voluminous unpublished notebooks and essays. Yeats himself suggested that he might not have been a poet at all if he had not made magic his "constant study". He considered himself "a voice of … a greater renaissance - the revolt of the soul against the intellect ", and he insisted that "the mystical life is the centre of all that I do and all that I think and all that I write."

Description:
This is an anthology of writings by the German Christian mystic, Jacob Boehme, edited by the occult writer, Franz Hartmann. Hartmann was a noted Theosophist, who also wrote With the Adepts and In the Pronaos of the Temple of Wisdom. Other than organizing the quotes from diverse books of Boehme into a set of themes ('Angels,' 'The Christ,' 'Redemption'), Hartmann mostly lets Boehme speak for himself. Boehme, typical of mystics who have experienced ecstatic visions, can go into puzzling detail about the structure of the universe, and the metaphysical reality that pervades it. This is a great reference work on the thought of this profound mystic for students of the occult.

Description:
The aim of this book, as designed by the publishers, is to present, in convenient form, information which the ordinary reader, not only of the literatures of Greece and Rome, but also of that large proportion of modern European literature which teems with classical allusions, may find useful. It endeavours to do two things: in the first place to bring together what he may wish to know about the evolution of classical literature, the principal authors, and their chief works; in the second place, to depict so much of the historical, political, social, and religious background as may help to make the classics understood.

Description:
The stanza has for long been neglected by both prosodists and critical analysts. Prosodists, although providing us with the terminology for a discussion of poetic forms, have tended to isolate those forms from meaning. And structural poetics, while valueable in itself, has been preoccupied with meaning without considering the stanza as an essential aspect of this. Ernst Haublein sets out to bridge this gap by suggesting criteria for relating the stanza to poetic structure. After describing the many foms of stanza used by poets from earliest times to the present day, he goes on to analyse the different strategies by which poets achieve stanzaic units of meaning, to evaluate the logical relationships between stanzas, and finally, to assess their place and function as parts within the poetic whole.

Description:
Professor Hay provides a clear picture of what the Renaissance was, what it mean and how it spread. His approach is historical, and he shows the Rennaissance as a growing and changing series of attitudes and ideas, rooted firmly in the general history of the period, and not as a static and isolated phenomenon. There is no other book in English, except the translation of Burckhardt, which embraces the political history as well as the history of art and ideas. The book will appeal to the general reader as well as to students of history and art.

Description:
Historians have long been aware of the close associations between monasticism and secular society in the Middle Ages, but they have tended to pay more attention to the political and economic than to the spiritual and liturgical aspects of the relationship. A study of the relationship between the medieval Roman emperors and the Cluiac confraternitae presupposes that a Cluniac confraternity did exist and, secondly, that imperial relations with it are of some marked significance for history. This study therefore has a two-fold aim on two converging levels of understanding. The first level concerns the confraternities themselves. What were they? How did they come into existence? What needs did they fulfill and what purpose did they serve? How did this particular form of communal association express itself at Cluny, what importance does it assume in the life of the monastery and society at large? In order to provide answers to such questions research will have to concentrate necessarily on the… Read more

Description:
Though most critics have been quick to acknowledge the innovative nature of James Joyce's stylistic experiments, few have pointed out the radical content of Ulysses or the revolutionary view of consciousness that is implicit in the novel.Suzette Henke makes use of various Continental methods of literary criticism to reconstruct Ulysses as a fictional life-world, and draws upon phenomenology, Geneva criticism, psychoanalytic investigation, and linguistic analysis to illumine the progress of the narrative. Existential philosophy provides the point of departure from which she demonstrates how the principles of Heidegger and Sartre elucidate the humanistic dimensions of Joyce's work. Ulysses, she maintains, is no mere tour de force: it has meaning "from and in life" and is significant to us as moral beings.

Description:
In this brief study David Hirst examines the meaning of the term "tragicomedy" by elucidating the most important theories of the genre and by analysing those plays which represent its most vital and influential expression. He draws a distinction between tragicomedies conceived as a careful fusion of contrasted dramatic elements and as a mixed genre which seeks to exploit a volatile combination of theatrical extremes.

In his political speeches especially and in his correspondence we see the excitement, tension and intrigue of politics and the part he played in the turmoil of the time.
