Book The Romance of the Rose

Download or read book The Romance of the Rose written by Guillaume de Lorris and published by Princeton University Press. This book was released on 2023-06-06 with total page 519 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Many English-speaking readers of the Roman de la rose, the famous dream allegory of the thirteenth century, have come to rely on Charles Dahlberg's elegant and precise translation of the Old French text. His line-by-line rendering in contemporary English is available again, this time in a third edition with an updated critical apparatus. Readers at all levels can continue to deepen their understanding of this rich tale about the Lover and his quest--against the admonishments of Reason and the obstacles set by Jealousy and Resistance--to pluck the fair Rose in the Enchanted Garden. The original introduction by Dahlberg remains an excellent overview of the work, covering such topics as the iconographic significance of the imagery and the use of irony in developing the central theme of love. His new preface reviews selected scholarship through 1990, which examines, for example, the sources and influences of the work, the two authors, the nature of the allegorical narrative as a genre, the use of first person, and the poem's early reception. The new bibliographic material incorporates that of the earlier editions. The sixty-four miniature illustrations from thirteenth-and fifteenth-century manuscripts are retained, as are the notes keyed to the Langlois edition, on which the translation is based.

Book New Worlds  New Geographies

Download or read book New Worlds New Geographies written by John Rennie Short and published by Syracuse University Press. This book was released on 2000-03-01 with total page 250 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: John Rennie Short maintains that the "new world order" is neither new nor orderly. His book, New Worlds, New Geographies, connects global change, urban transformation, and scholarly integrity. The disintegration of the comforting illusion that the present is just a continuation of the past demands a closer evaluation of how to live one's life in the fragmented, chaotic world of postmodemity and the current distrust of rationality and progress. In a personal yet analytical style, Short elucidates the struggles of governments and individuals to situate themselves within changing nation states and the restructurings of urban spaces into a kind of global village. Short insists that it is the responsibility of academics to help make order out of the chaos of postmodemity and make sense of the relationships between people and the environment, the social and the spatial, the structural and the personal. From the restructuring of a "new world order" to the reappraisal of the role of academics, this accessible collection of essays calls for a "progressive human geography" to help cope with the political changes of a postmodern age. New Worlds, New Geographies represents a reluctant postmodernist and resident alien's attempt to make sense of a changing world.

Book The Romance of the Rose Illuminated

Download or read book The Romance of the Rose Illuminated written by Alcuin Blamires and published by Virago Press. This book was released on 2002 with total page 226 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book reproduces in colour, with commentary and full contextual discussion, all the miniatures from unpublished illuminated manuscripts of Le Roman de la Rose in the National Library of Wales. A central work in medieval culture, the Rose was among the most consistently illustrated of medieval secular texts. By presenting all the illuminations from all five illuminated Aberystwyth manuscripts the present study enables absorbing comparisons to be made. This is a book that will stir controversy through its scepticism about moral readings of Rose illustrations and through its insistence on an "accidental" element in the interpretative value of miniatures in secular texts. It will interest anyone who studies art and literature, including students of Chaucer - a poet who absorbed the Roman de la Rose to the core by translating it. The reader is first introduced to the narrative and to characteristic sites of illustration within it. The introduction goes on to identify existing published sources of reproductions, and then to argue the crucial role that a grasp of the practical circumstances of production should play in interpreting medieval miniatures. A final complementary chapter formally describes all seven Aberystwyth Rose manuscripts.
