Susan E. Deskis Alliterative Proverbs in Medieval England. Language Choice and Literary Meaning

4227 руб.
Medieval England's specific political and linguistic history encompasses a great number of significant changes, some of the most disruptive of which were occasioned by the Norman Conquest. The alliterative proverb, with roots in Old English and continued vitality in Middle English, serves as a unique verbal icon allowing exploration of cultural conditions both before and after the Conquest. As a durable yet flexible form, the proverb remained just as important in the fifteenth century as it was in the sixth. The proverb has been an underutilized resource in tracing the linguistic and intellectual cultures of the past. Making the fullest use of this material, this study, by Susan E. Deskis, is complex in its combination of philology, paroemiology, literary history, and sociolinguistics, ultimately reaching conclusions that are enlightening for both the literary and linguistic histories of medieval England. In the language ecology of England from about 1100 to about 1500, where English, French, and Latin compete for use, alliterative proverbs are marked not only by the choice of English as the language of expression but also because alliteration in Middle English connotes a conscious connection to the past. Alliterative Proverbs in Medieval England: Language Choice and Literary Meaning explores how that connection is exploited in various literary genres from school texts and sermons to romances and cycle plays.

Michael John Herrick Echoes of the Past. A Family Story

1864 руб.
This is a true story of one family's ancestral line spanning over 26 generations and over 10 centuries. It is a story of success, failure, joy and sorrow. It is a story of individuals experiencing life’s ups and downs within their vastly different environments. It is a story of English and American history through the lens of one single family and ancestral line. The story begins with Henry Herrick in early 17th century Leicester, England. Henry Herrick's early life in Leicester is narrated, as is his later life in Salem, Massachusetts. Once Henry makes the decision to leave England for New England for a new life, he begins to contemplate his family history beginning with his Danish Vikings roots who settled in England, to his wealthy and famous English family, to his connection to King Richard III, to family members knighted by the King of England, to his Puritan beliefs which lead him to America. Once in New England, the life and times of his decsendants along one family line are described to the present time. Events in American history through this Herrick family line include the Salem Witchcraft trails, colonial wars, the Revolutionary War, the Civil War and stories about the life of one man in this Herrick line during the 20th century.

Leland Thomas of Penrith is born a peasant in the realm of Cumbrea, in medieval England. He grows up in the shadow of the nearby castle, home to King Frederick and his family. Leland's father teaches him archery from an early age, and he gains great skill at the bow. When he is a teenager, however, his father passes away, leaving him orphaned and alone. Howard, the village blacksmith, takes him in and keeps him safe as he grows to manhood. Leland bears a passion for the hunt, a love of the forest, and a complete disregard for the king's laws-he poaches game in the king's woods, sharing his kills with the needy among the villagers. In order to catch the poacher, the king holds an archery tournament. Leland enters in hopes of winning a valuable prize. But this quest sets him on a path to win the gratitude and friendship of a prince-and perhaps the love of a princess. In this historical novel, set in medieval England, a young peasant boy who is a skilled archer and avid hunter enters the king's archery tournament to win the right to follow his dreams.

Elisheva Baumgarten Mothers and Children. Jewish Family Life in Medieval Europe

4277 руб.
This book presents a synthetic history of the family--the most basic building block of medieval Jewish communities--in Germany and northern France during the High Middle Ages. Concentrating on the special roles of mothers and children, it also advances recent efforts to write a comparative Jewish-Christian social history. Elisheva Baumgarten draws on a rich trove of primary sources to give a full portrait of medieval Jewish family life during the period of childhood from birth to the beginning of formal education at age seven. Illustrating the importance of understanding Jewish practice in the context of Christian society and recognizing the shared foundations in both societies, Baumgarten's examination of Jewish and Christian practices and attitudes is explicitly comparative. Her analysis is also wideranging, covering nearly every aspect of home life and childrearing, including pregnancy, midwifery, birth and initiation rituals, nursing, sterility, infanticide, remarriage, attitudes toward mothers and fathers, gender hierarchies, divorce, widowhood, early education, and the place of children in the home, synagogue, and community. A richly detailed and deeply researched contribution to our understanding of the relationship between Jews and their non-Jewish neighbors, Mothers and Children provides a key analysis of the history of Jewish families in medieval Ashkenaz.

Susan E. Phillips Transforming Talk. The Problem with Gossip in Late Medieval England

5139 руб.
In recent decades, scholars have shown an increasing interest in gossip's social, psychological, and literary functions. The first book-length study of medieval gossip, Transforming Talk shifts the current debate and argues that gossip functions primarily as a transformative discourse, influencing not only social interactions but also literary and religious practices. Known as "jangling" in Middle English, gossip was believed to corrupt parishioners, disturb the peace, and cause civil and spiritual unrest. But gossip was also a productive cultural force; it reconfigured pastoral practice, catalyzed narrative experimentation, and restructured social and familial relationships. Transforming Talk will appeal to a diverse audience, including scholars interested in late medieval culture, religion, and society; Chaucer; and women in the Middle Ages.

In Medieval Scotland, an English soldier endures a devastating battle only to discover what comes in the night for the blood of war. An itinerant rider chases a crooked dream to a grim finale in the bleak, lonely desert of Old West Texas. The last surviving member of a New England family investigates his flooded ancestral home and the shocking final chapter of his family tree. An arranged marriage deep in the forest for a man on the run turns into a nightmare he could never have imagined in his darkest moments.From Ed Kurtz, the acclaimed author of At the Mercy of Beasts and Bleed, comes a new collection of dark fiction that will take you on a journey of horrific visions summoned into the bloody battlefields of medieval Europe and the desolate wastelands of the post-Civil War Southwest, from undead horrors in Tsarist Russia to a painful and horrifying parenthood that could only happen to two desperate criminals at the end of their rope. Tales of mythic, bloodthirsty creatures collide with contemporary demons and nature gone amok where the weird and the monstrous are conjured by ill intentions and best laid plans. This is BLOOD THEY BROUGHT.

This antiquarian volume comprises Richard Jefferies' early example of post-apocalyptic fiction, 'After London'. After an unspecified disaster depopulates England, a small number of survivors are forced to live in a quasi-medieval fashion in a landscape almost entirely reclaimed by nature. Jefferies' unparalleled skill as a nature writer is obvious in this uncannily prophetic portrayal of a post-apocalyptic England that has been hailed as the most beautiful of all Victorian novels. This text will appeal to those with an interest in early speculative fiction, and it is a veritable must-read for fans and collectors of Jefferies' wonderful literature. We are republishing this vintage book now in an affordable, modern edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

This excellent genealogy identifies well over five thousand individuals in the male line through eighteen generations in England and the United States. The family here studied is the Goode family of Virginia, introduced to America prior to 1660 by the immigrant John Goode. John was born in the vicinity of Cornwall, England, between 1620 and 1630. Whitby refers to the plantation that John established in Virginia, a corruption of the spelling of his English birthplace, Whitley. A wealth of data has been included on the history of the Goodes in England, greatly enhancing the value of the text. Several items are worthy of special notice: a facsimile reprint of the will of John Goode; an "Army Roll," listing family members who rendered service in Bacon's Indian War, Braddock's Expedition, the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, the Florida Indian War, the Mexican War and the Civil War (both Union and Confederate troops); three appendices-"The Family in England, with notices of American offshoots not of the Whitby stock," "Some Ancestral Families," and "Addenda et Corrigenda;" a key listing principal works of reference; and a full name index, cross-referenced with the aforementioned list of references. Numerous pedigree charts are included.

Emma Lipton Affections of the Mind. The Politics of Sacramental Marriage in Late Medieval English Literature

5914 руб.
Affections of the Mind argues that a politicized negotiation of issues of authority in the institution of marriage can be found in late medieval England, where an emergent middle class of society used a sacramental model of marriage to exploit contradictions within medieval theology and social hierarchy. Emma Lipton traces the unprecedented popularity of marriage as a literary topic and the tensions between different models of marriage in the literature of the later fourteenth and fifteenth centuries by analyzing such texts as Chaucer's Franklin's Tale, The Book of Margery Kempe, and the N-Town plays. Affections of the Mind focuses on marriage as a fluid and contested category rather than one with a fixed meaning, and argues that the late medieval literature of sacramental marriage subverted aristocratic and clerical traditions of love and marriage in order to promote the values of the lay middle strata of society. This book will be of value to a broad range of scholars in medieval studies.

Katherine C. Little Transforming Work. Early Modern Pastoral and Late Medieval Poetry

5589 руб.
Pastoral poetry has long been considered a signature Renaissance mode: originating in late sixteenth-century England via a rediscovery of classical texts, it is concerned with self-fashioning and celebrating the court. But, as Katherine C. Little demonstrates in Transforming Work: Early Modern Pastoral and Medieval Poetry, the pastoral mode is in fact indebted to medieval representations of rural labor. Little offers a new literary history for the pastoral, arguing that the authors of the first English pastorals used rural laborers familiar from medieval texts-plowmen and shepherds-to reflect on the social, economic, and religious disruptions of the sixteenth century. In medieval writing, these figures were particularly associated with the reform of the individual and the social world: their work also stood for the penance and good works required of Christians, the care of the flock required of priests, and the obligations of all people to work within their social class. By the sixteenth century, this reformism had taken on a dangerous set of associations-with radical Protestantism, peasants' revolts, and complaints about agrarian capitalism. Pastoral poetry rewrites and empties out this radical potential, making the countryside safe to write about again. Moving from William Langland's Piers Plowman and the medieval shepherd plays, through the Piers Plowman-tradition, to Edmund Spenser's pastorals, Little's reconstructed literary genealogy discovers the "o...

'The 25th day of November the house of Syon was suppressed into the King's hands, and the ladies and brethren put out, which was the [most] virtuous house of religion that was in England.' So wrote the chronicler Charles Wriothesley in 1539. But the story of Syon Abbey did not end with the Dissolution of the Monasteries. Founded by Henry V in 1415, England's only house of the Bridgettine order had been one of the richest monasteries of medieval England. Now the community went underground; they returned briefly under Queen Mary, only to leave again with the accession of Elizabeth. They were to spend more than half a century 'wandering'-through the Netherlands and France, an exodus that brought them, in 1594, to Lisbon in Portugal. Here they remained until 1861, when circumstances at last allowed a return home to England. They settled in Devon, where the remaining sisters now live in retirement.The history of Syon Abbey is an inspiring story of faith and fortitude, of an enclosed, contemplative community that found itself living through persecution and martyrdom, wars and revolutions, fire and earthquake, over six centuries of unbroken tradition and unyielding faith. This book celebrates the sexcentenary of that community in 2015.

This book is divided into two parts. Part I documents the Blake family, beginning in England with Robert de Blakeland, who was assessed in the Wiltshire Roll of Subsidies granted in 1286 to Edward I. This section continues with the Blake and branch families for seven generations. Part II documents the Torrey family, beginning with their roots in England and including their branch families in America. Records have shown the genealogy of this family from 1500 to 1640 in England. In the year 1640, William Torrey with his two young sons, his three brothers (James, Philip and Joseph) and cousin George Fry, came to New England. The Blake and Torrey families were joined by the marriage of Nathan Blake III and Susan Torrey in 1815. Each generation is given a thorough narrative treatment. Blake branch families include Bend, Breck, Guild, Graves and Day. Torrey branch families include Haviland, Greene, Symmes, Wilson, Gould and Freeman. Dozens of other allied families are mentioned in this work.

How could a medieval Jewish cemetery cause so much debate? At Vitoria transports the reader from 1950s Bayonne, France back to medieval Spain and weaves a story of success, love, terror, tragedy, shame, and honor. The historical and cultural details make for an evocative narrative that draw the reader in and provide an engaging sense of realism. At Vitoria introduces the reader to the CREVAGOS, a Jewish family that copes with adversity and trauma in the midst of joy and daily needs, while living under the shadow of the Spanish Inquisition. Hard work, intelligence and clever spirit create a family of survivors. At Vitoria is also the story of how, in 1492 when Jews are expelled from Spain, the Christians of Vitoria, grateful to Jewish physicians for saving lives, take an oath to preserve the Jewish cemetery. Almost 500 years later, this promise draws raw emotions from both Christians and Jews. At Vitoria is a heart wrenching, but ultimately heart-warming read, with a life-affirming message. It is sure to cause smiles, tears, and renewed pride in humanity.

Pastoral poetry has long been considered a signature Renaissance mode: originating in late sixteenth-century England via a rediscovery of classical texts, it is concerned with self-fashioning and celebrating the court. But, as Katherine C. Little demonstrates in Transforming Work: Early Modern Pastoral and Medieval Poetry, the pastoral mode is in fact indebted to medieval representations of rural labor. Little offers a new literary history for the pastoral, arguing that the authors of the first English pastorals used rural laborers familiar from medieval texts-plowmen and shepherds-to reflect on the social, economic, and religious disruptions of the sixteenth century. In medieval writing, these figures were particularly associated with the reform of the individual and the social world: their work also stood for the penance and good works required of Christians, the care of the flock required of priests, and the obligations of all people to work within their social class. By the sixteenth century, this reformism had taken on a dangerous set of associations-with radical Protestantism, peasants' revolts, and complaints about agrarian capitalism. Pastoral poetry rewrites and empties out this radical potential, making the countryside safe to write about again. Moving from William Langland's Piers Plowman and the medieval shepherd plays, through the Piers Plowman-tradition, to Edmund Spenser's pastorals, Little's reconstructed literary genealogy discovers the "o...
