Im Zeitraum um 1800 ist ein ausgeprägtes anthropologisches Interesse europäischer Autoren an fremden Kulturen zu konstatieren. Dieses Interesse manifestiert sich nicht allein in den damals zahlreich erscheinenden Reiseberichten und in der Entstehung akademischer Disziplinen wie ‚Menschheitsgeschichte‘ und ‚physische Geographie‘, sondern greift auf das Gebiet der fiktionalen Literatur und der Ästhetik über. Etliche zeitgenössische Dramen, Erzähltexte und Gedichte inszenieren kulturelle Differenz, und auch innerhalb der parallel dazu entwickelten ästhetischen Theorien spielt die Auseinandersetzung mit außereuropäischen Kunst- und Schönheitsvorstellungen eine eminente Rolle. In exemplarischen Analysen untersuchen die hier versammelten Beiträge vor allem mit Blick auf den deutschsprachigen Bereich, welche literarische Produktivität und ästhetische Innovationskraft sich aus der Beschäftigung mit völkerkundlich-anthropologischen Phänomenen ergab und inwieweit umgekehrt Literatur und Ästhetik einen wesentlichen Beitrag zur Menschenkunde von der Aufklärung bis zur Romantik leisteten.

Written in an available sort, The Legacy of Boadicea:
* deals strong new readings of the traditional British prior in Shakespeare's King Lear and Cymbeline
* persuasively illuminates a 'Boadicean' history in royal iconography, drama, and the social indicators of spiritual dissent
* articulates parallels among the eventual domestication of Britain's warrior queen in recovery drama, and the social, political and criminal decline within the prestige of women.

The historic Greek romances of Achilles Tatius and Heliodorus have been broadly imitated by way of early sleek writers akin to Miguel de Cervantes, Philip Sidney, and Mary Wroth. Like their Greek types, Renaissance romances used ekphrasis, or verbal descriptions of visible illustration, as a device for characterization. The Emblematics of the Self indicates how the ladies, foreigners, and non-Christians of those stories demonstrate their identities and wants of their responses to the ‘verbal photos’ of romance.
Elizabeth B. Bearden illuminates how ‘verbal photographs’ liven up characterization in English, Spanish, and Neolatin romances from 1552 to 1621. She notes the ability for switch between characters — reminiscent of cross-dressed Amazons, shepherdish princesses, and white Mauritanians — who traverse transnational cultural and aesthetic environments. attractive and rigorous, The Emblematics of the Self breaks new flooring in figuring out hegemonic and cosmopolitan eu conceptions of the ‘other,’ in addition to new probabilities for early glossy identities, in an more and more international Renaissance.

This paintings demanding situations the typical consensus that Luther, together with his dedication to St. Paul's articulation of justification by way of religion, leaves no room for the Letter of St. James. by contrast one-sided studying of Luther, targeted in basic terms his feedback of the letter, this ebook argues that Luther had fruitful interpretations of the epistle that formed the following exegetical culture. Scholarship's singular focus on Luther's feedback of James as "an epistle of straw" has brought on many to miss Luther's sermons on James, the numerous areas the place James involves complete expression in Luther's writings, and the effect that Luther's biblical interpretation had on later interpretations of James. established totally on ignored Lutheran sermons within the 16th and 17th centuries, this paintings examines the pastoral hermeneutic of Luther and his theological heirs as they heard the voice of James and communicated that voice to and for the sake of the church. students, pastors, and expert laity alike are invited to find how Luther's theology was once formed by means of the Epistle of James and the way Luther's scholars and theological heirs aimed to evangelise this disputed letter fruitfully to their hearers.
