  • File Pdf: intende-lector-echoes-of-myth-religion-and-ritual-in-the-ancient-novel.pdf

Book Summary:

Representation of myth in the novel, as a poetic, narrative and aesthetic device, is one of the most illuminating issues in the area of ancient religion, for such narratives investigate in various ways fundamental problems that concern all human beings. This volume brings together twenty contributions (six of them to a Roundtable organized by Anton Bierl on myth), originally presented at the Fourth International Conference on the Ancient novel (ICAN IV) held in Lisbon in July 2008. Employing an interdisciplinary approach and putting together different methodological tools (intertextual, psychological, and anthropological), each offers a illuminating investigation of mythical discourse as presented in the text or texts under discussion. The collection as a whole demonstrates the exemplary and transgressive significance of myth and its metaphorical meaning in a genre that to some extent can be considered a modernized and secular form of myth that focuses on the quintessential question of love.

Book Summary:

This volume explores film and television sources in problematic conversation with classical antiquity, to better understand the nature of artistic reception and classical reception in particular. Drawing inspiration from well-theorized fields like adaptation studies, comparative literature, and film, the essays in this collection raise questions fundamental to the future of reception studies. The first section, ‘Beyond Fidelity’, deals with idiosyncratic adaptations of ancient sources; the second section, ‘Beyond Influence’, discusses modern works purporting to adapt ancient figures or themes that are less straightforwardly ancient than they may at first appear; while the last section, ‘Beyond Original’, uses films that lack even these murky connections to antiquity to challenge the notion that studying reception requires establishing historical connections between works. As questions of audience, interpretation, and subjectivity are central to most contemporary fields of study, this is a collection that is of interest to a wide variety of readers in the humanities.

Book Summary:

A fresh start in Scotland's Orkney Islands is just what artist Caris MacLeod needs. Leaving British Columbia and a broken marriage behind for the wild coast of Orkney, Caris is immediately captivated by Mark Raffin, a mysterious, aloof neighbour who has an affinity for Orkney art. Despite some tense encounters with Mark, Caris soon feels welcome in the community. She immerses herself in Orkney’s spectacular beauty and its Norse history, myths and legends, which lift her creative spirit and inspire her to paint. She even finds herself falling in love with Mark—until she sees him with another woman. When an Englishwoman, Sarah, buys Caris’s artwork and invites her to a private showing in Yorkshire, Caris becomes entangled in some deep family ties—and dark history—all linked to her new home in Orkney. Navigating a world of myth, lore, dreams, and a touch of magic, Caris begins to learn that the truth may lie in the past ... and the path towards reconciliation is a more complicated journey than she could have imagined.

'Shakespeare invented the human as we continue to know it' Harold Bloom Set in a city torn apart by feuds and gang warfare, Shakespeare's immortal drama tells the story of star-crossed lovers, rival dynasties and bloody revenge. Romeo and Juliet is a hymn to youth and the thrill of forbidden love, charged with sexual passion and violence, but also a warning of death: a dazzling combination of bawdy comedy and high tragedy.

Book Summary:

The Sacred Now presents a contemporary Jewish spiritual philosophy that is founded in both the Jewish tradition and a commitment to contemporary culture. It synthesizes the sensibilities of Kabbalah, philosophy, and secular spirituality. While the great timeless questions that humanity has asked itself remain unchanged, humanity’s responses to these questions evolve over time. As society changes and our knowledge of the universe changes, our spiritual and religious life naturally must also evolve if we intend to remain engaged in the world around us. The Sacred Now examines the state of Jewish spirituality today, proposing orientations and practices geared toward cultivating consciousness of the Divine. It discusses the relationship of spirituality and religion, examines the functions of both structure and freedom in developing a lifestyle with a strong spiritual focus, while remaining cognizant that it is the practice more than the theory that ultimately matters.

Book Summary:

The art of Poetry I have been writing poetry for only a few years, and as such, can I really consider myself a poet?. The answer to this question is Yes. To be a poet is a condition, not a profession. Each individual who takes on the quest of writing poetry, places upon his, or her self not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion. Poetry is, not the expression of personality, but an escape from personality. As a painter uses color, and the lack of color, light and shade, the poet uses language as his canvas, A poet uses the written word to express his "pictures" to the world. And if the poet is successful in what he is trying to say to the reader, it becomes the revelation of a feeling that the poet believes to be interior and personal which the reader recognizes as his own. Even when poetry has a meaning, as it usually has, it may be inadvisable to draw it out, perfect understanding will sometimes almost extinguish pleasure. Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood. I've written some poetry I don't understand myself. At times, I may get a thought, and have a clear idea what I want to say, and before the poem is finished, I have gone in a totally different direction, as the lines and ideas flow in and out of my mind until the next one comes along to leave the finished poem in no way resembling the original idea that I started with. This is true of the Painter as well, seeing things not as they are, but as the Painter imagines they are. Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep. The poet doesn't invent. He listens. The poet is a liar who always speaks the truth. Each memorable verse of a true poet has two or three times the written content. I find as I read through the hard copies of poems that I have written, there are many changed lines, or thoughts, crossed out and rearranged in an attempt to get the thoughts just as i imagine them in my mind, and that is a very difficult thing to accomplish. Art is the desire of a man to express himself, to record the reactions of his personality to the world he lives in. It enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time. Poetry is thoughts that breathe, and words that burn. A sculptor is a person who is interested in the shape of things, a poet in words, a musician in sounds. All are on the same plane in my opinion, and all express to the audience in attendance, the thoughts of the artist. An artist is somebody who produces things that people don't need to have. Although people enjoy the art of the poet, the painter, the musician, these are not things that we need to survive, only things that help us enjoy, in a small way that survival. Dean Evans
