Description:
Herodotus (484-ca. 425 BCE), the 'Father of History,' wrote this account of the ephocal conflict between the Greeks and Persians between 430 and 424 BCE. The title of the work, 'Historie' means 'Inquiry.' Subsequently it became the name of the science of history, and via Latin passed into other languages including English.
Divided by later editors into nine books named after the Muses, the History traces the growth of the Persian empire, starting with Croesus of Lydia, though Cyrus and Xerxes. The pivotal event of the History is the Battle of Marathon (490 BCE), where the Persians were defeated by the Greeks. A decade later the Persians, led by Xerxes, returned but were decisively defeated at the Battle of Plataea in 479 BCE. One can only wonder what the world would have been like if the nascent Greek democracy and high classical culture had been nipped in the bud by Persian despotism.
Beyond the historical narrative, Herodotus is one of the primary sources for information on ancient lands and… Read more

Description:
Theophrastus Paracelsus, doctor, chemist, and mystic was born in Switzerland in 1493.He is celebrated as the man who, on his appointment as town physician and lecturer in the University of Basle in 1526, preceeded his lectures by a solemn burning of the books of his predecessors Galen and Avicenna. The prophecies comprise 32 allegorical pictures each accompanied by a prognostication, a preface and an elucidation. Paracelsus' images are usually obscure. It was as if he saw the future as a series of moving pictures on a film but was only able to describe them out of chronological sequence. Like other occult works of the period, the course of future events is never explicitly stated. It is up to the reader to use his insight and imagination to draw his own conclusions from the subtle hints that Paracelsus gives.

Description:
The inclusion of the Gospels in the Penguin Classics series entails no new assessment of their literary, as against their spiritual, importance. For the last hundred years they have stood up to ruthless analysis and have emerged from it supreme in both respects. But there are two implications which I must mention. First, this new translation has behind it no denominational authority. It is a singlehanded effort, and the reader is invited to follow one guide only on a voyage of discovery. Secondly, the decision to place the volume side by side with other masterpieces of ancient art brings home to me a truth I did not realize before I undertook my task. The Four Gospels are spiritually supreme largely because they are great literature. The two values interlock. Other gospels were written in the first hundred years of the Christian faith, but they failed because in one or both of these respects they showed a weakness. The Church, when it canonized the Four, displayed the excellence of its… Read more

Description:
Dr. Riley-Smith's book is the first in the English language to define what the Crusades were. In this concise introductory text on the crusading experience in the Middle Ages, he elucidates key ideas and institutions which have been neglected in narrative accounts. Original in its conception, the book is a contribution of major importance to Medieval History scholarship and, in its lucid and systematic treatment of the issues, it is an unequalled introduction to the subject for students and for the general reader.

Description:
Genghis Khan built an empire stretching from the China Sea to Eastern Europe on the bones of massacred millions, and with his sword secured for himself a place in the hall of infamy. By the middle of the thirteenth century, the Mongols occupied half Europe and stood at the gates of Vienna.Yet there is startling evidence that a mysterious Englishman who acted as Batu Khan's personal envoy, interpreter and spy chief was the architect of the diplomatic drive preceding the Tartar holocaust in Europe. Proof of the existence of the Tartar Khan's English-born diplomat was uncovered by Ronay in a thirteenth-century monastic chronicle. In this book Ronay pieces together from contemporary documentary sources the extraordinary career of the envoy.

Description:
Now in a revised edition, this collection of twenty-two essays is essential reading for every student of Chaucer's poetry. The contributions, which were written especially for this volume, represent some of the most distinguished Chaucerian scholarship of our time. Perceptive and lively, the studies explain the most significant aspects of Chaucerian scholarship, discuss the critical principles on which they are based, and provide sound, modern interpretations of the poetry. The work is particularly useful in helping the student sort out the bewildering variety of modern approaches to and re-evaluations of Chaucer's poetic achievement. The second edition brings all the articles and bibliographies up-to-date and includes two essays that are new: one on the Legend of Good Women and one on Chaucer, the church, and religion. A convenient index is also new to this edition.

Description:
Literary criticism has only recently come of age as an academic discipline, and the intellectual activity that, a hundred years ago, went into theological discussion now finds its most natural outlet in the critical essay. Amid a good deal that is dull or silly or pretentious, every year now produces a crop of critical essays which are brilliant and profound not only as contributions to the understanding of a particular author but as statements of an original way of looking at literature and the world. Hence, it often seems that the most useful undertaking for an academic publisher might be not so much to commission new books of literary criticism or scholarship as to make the best of what exists easily available. This at least is the purpose of the present series of anthologies, each of which is devoted to a single major writer.

Description:
Early in the 14th century, Juan Ruiz, minstrel and Archpriest of Hita, composed his Libro de Buen Amor, a masterpiece that ranks with the Canterbury Tales and Roman de la Rose. His "Book of Love" delighted generations of readers with its tales of love, its scenes of town and country life, its allegories and fables, its flashing word play, and its variegated songs, all mingled together on the artfully loose-jointed armature of a clearly apocryphal autobiography. But today it lies almost inaccessible behind the barrier of its archaic language. For any reader who wishes to enjoy the formal beauty of the lyric and narrative verses, an analysis of the Archpriest's poetic is supplied in non-technical language.
