The Idea of the Labyrinth from Classical Antiquity through the Middle Ages

Ancient and medieval labyrinths embody paradox, according to Penelope Reed Doob. Their structure allows a double perspective—the baffling, fragmented prospect confronting the maze-treader within, and the comprehensive vision available to those without. Mazes simultaneously assert order and chaos, artistry and confusion, articulated clarity and bewildering complexity, perfected pattern and hesitant process. In this handsomely illustrated book, Doob reconstructs from a variety of literary and visual sources the idea of the labyrinth from the classical period through the Middle Ages.Doob first examines several complementary traditions of the maze topos, showing how ancient historical and geographical writings generate metaphors in which the labyrinth signifies admirable complexity, while poetic texts tend to suggest that the labyrinth is a sign of moral duplicity. She then describes two common models of the labyrinth and explores their formal implications: the unicursal model, with no false turnings, found almost universally in the visual arts; and the multicursal model, with blind alleys and dead ends, characteristic of literary texts. This paradigmatic clash between the labyrinths of art and of literature becomes a key to the metaphorical potential of the maze, as Doob's examination of a vast array of materials from the classical period through the Middle Ages suggests. She concludes with linked readings of four "labyrinths of words": Virgil's Aeneid, Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy, Dante's Divine Comedy, and Chaucer's House of Fame, each of which plays with and transforms received ideas of the labyrinth as well as reflecting and responding to aspects of the texts that influenced it.Doob not only provides fresh theoretical and historical perspectives on the labyrinth tradition, but also portrays a complex medieval aesthetic that helps us to approach structurally elaborate early works. Readers in such fields as Classical literature, Medieval Studies, Renaissance Studies, comparative literature, literary theory, art history, and intellectual history will welcome this wide-ranging and illuminating book.

Reconfiguring Human, Nonhuman and Posthuman in Literature and Culture (Perspectives on the Non-Human in Literature and Culture)

  The time has come for human cultures to seriously think, to severely conceptualize, and to earnestly fabulate about all the nonhuman critters we share our world with, and to consider how to strive for more ethical cohabitation. Reconfiguring Human, Nonhuman and Posthuman in Literature and Culture tackles this severe matter within the framework of literary and cultural studies. The emphasis of the inquiry is on the various ways actual and fictional nonhumans are reconfigured in contemporary culture – although, as long as the domain of nonhumanity is carved in the negative space of humanity, addressing these issues will inevitably clamor for the reconfiguration of the human as well.

SalomA(C) (Bilingual Edition: English-French): Illustrated: The Original Edition in French & The English Version

Salome is a tragedy by Oscar Wilde an it tells the Biblical story of Salome, stepdaughter of the tetrarch Herod Antipas, who, to her stepfather's dismay but to the delight of her mother Herodias, requests the head of Jokanaan (John the Baptist) on a silver platter as a reward for dancing the dance of the seven veils. Wilde wrote Salome in French and translated it to English several years later. The play was refused a license by the Lord Chamberlain, since it was illegal to depict biblical characters. It was eventually performed in Paris, but the ban in England stood for almost forty years. This edition contains both French and English version of the play.

in between destinations

“unfinished thought, unspoken subtext, incomplete statement, awkward silence…here i am.” You know the feeling of being held hostage there. In that awkward space where every breath and second drowns you in uncomfortable; then you are familiar with the landscapes where In Between Destinations finds its voice. Pulled from a collection of Polaroid memories that you hoped were lost forever and then held up to reveal the defects time and memory has made glossy, the author spares no one (including himself) from the sharpened edge of his pen. At times unsettling in simplicity and childlike in its voice, there is a lyrical quality to the word-craft which is both alarming and playful.Vividly worded, emotionally authentic, sparing of words but sparing of nobody, least of all the author, these short works tease out how private iniquities of the past stand behind today’s foul effluence of violence, violation, addiction, guilt, and mental disaffection.“this tastes like thoughts I shouldn’t have”, enough said.
