Inspiration and Technique

Ancient to Modern Views on Beauty and Art

Author: John Roe,Michele Stanco

While Plato extols inspired poetry (as opposed to poetry produced by means of technique), Aristotle conceives of poetry only in terms of "techne." Underlying the opposition between "inspiration" and "technique" are two different approaches to 'form' inspiration is concerned with the impression of ideas or forms within the poet's psyche (the author's "forma mentis"), whereas technique deals with the transposition of the artist's idea into the material form of the work (the "forma operis"). This dual view of form, and of its complex relation to matter, may be said to lie at the basis of a dual approach to aesthetic issues - a "psychological" and a "textual" one. Taking their cue from this opposition, the essays gathered here explore some of the most momentous phases in the history of aesthetics, from Graeco-Roman philosophy and oratory to Renaissance poetry and literary criticism, from neoclassical poetics to Romantic and Victorian views on inspired visions, to recent issues in neuroaesthetics, philosophy of art and literary linguistics. In so doing, they collectively point to the irremediable and continuing dualism of a critical tradition that has alternately emphasized the ideal elements of beauty and the material constituents of art."

Translation has been a crucial process in world culture over the past two millennia and more. In the English-speaking cultures many of the most important texts are translations, from Homer to Beckett, the Bible to Freud. Although recent years have seen a boom in translation studies, there has been no comprehensive yet convenient guide to this essential element of literature in English. Written by eminent scholars from many countries, the Oxford Guide to Literature in English Translation meets this need and will be essential reading for all students of English and comparative literature. It highlights the place of translation in our culture, encouraging awareness of the issues raised, making the translator more visible. Concentrating on major writers and works, it covers translations out of many languages, from Greek to Korean, from Swahili to Russian. For some works (e.g. Virgil's Aeneid) which have been much translated, the discussion is historical and critical, showing how translation has evolved over the centuries and bringing out the differences between versions. Elsewhere, with less familiar literatures, the Guide examines the extent to which translation has done justice to the range of work available. The Guide is divided into two parts. Part I contains substantial essays on theoretical questions, a pioneering outline of the history of translation into English, and discussions of the problems raised by specific types of text (e.g. poetry, oralliterature). The second, much longer, part consists of entries grouped by language of origin; some are devoted to individual texts (e.g. the Thousand and One Nights) or writers (e.g. Ibsen, Proust), but the majority offer a critical overview of a genre (e.g. Chinese poetry, Spanish Golden Age drama) or of a national literature (e.g. Hungarian, Scottish Gaelic). There is a selective bibliography for each entry and an index of authors and translators.

Kleine Einführung in die Altertumswissenschaft

Die Autoren dieses Bandes berichten sehr unterhaltsam, unterstützt durch Abbildungen und Cartoons, von dem Entdeckerspaß der Altertumswissenschaftler, aber auch von den Problemen, vor die sie sich bei ihrer Forschung gestellt sehen. Dabei geht es um Kunstraub genauso wie um große Theorien, um moderne Techniken wie um das Beherrschen der alten Sprachen, um das Puzzlespiel der Rekonstruktion wie um das Bild des Altertums im Wandel der Jahrhunderte. Ausgangspunkt sind vereinzelte Stücke eines antiken griechischen Tempels - des Tempels von Bassai -, ausgestellt im Britischen Museum, im Herzen des modernen London.

Lives of the Attic Orators

Texts from Pseudo-Plutarch, Photius, and the Suda

This volume provides a complete translation of, and historical and historiographical commentary on, the lives of the ten Attic orators given by Pseudo-Plutarch, Photius, and the Suda. Assessing these works as important historical sources for the individual lives and careers of the orators whose works have survived, this systematic study explores how these literary biographies were constructed, the information they provide, and their veracity. In-depth commentary notes offer contextual information, explain references and examine individual rhetorical phrases, and a glossary of technical terms provides a quick reference guide to the more obscure oratorical and political terms. The volume also includes a detailed introduction which discusses the evolution of Greek oratory and rhetoric; the so-called Canon of the Ten Orators; the authorship, dates, and sources of the biographies provided by Pseudo-Plutarch, Photius, and the Suda; and a brief consideration of orators whose speeches were either falsely attributed to Demosthenes or may be referenced in the ancient lives.

Starting with the first substantial body of primary sources, the epics of Homer and Hesiod in the 7th century, and ending with the fall of Egypt to the Romans in 30BC, this volume describes and analyzes the development of mediation, arbitration and other ways of resolving disputes, other than litigation. New translations of more than three hundred primary sources allow you to decide for yourself whether the conclusions are valid.

Bezweckt wird, die historisch rekonstruierbare Wirklichkeit der athenischen Truppeneinsatze zu Land und zu Wasser wahrend des 4. Jhs. und das Verhalten und den Status der dort verwendeten Soldaten mit dem von den Rednern vermittelten Bild und ihren Bewertungen der Burger und Nicht-Burger als Soldaten zu konfrontieren. Damit sollte es moglich sein, die Anspruche der demokratisch verfassten Poleis an ihre Soldaten und das Militar mit der Realitat zu vergleichen und zu eruieren, inwieweit Konvergenzen und Divergenzen vorliegen. Die Erkenntnis, wie es um das Verhaltnis der Burger zu Soldnern und Fremdruderern in Athens Streitkraften stand, und daruber hinaus die klare Ausscheidung gesicherter Sachverhalte von wertenden Urteilen daruber in der zeitgenossischen Literatur ware ein Fortschritt fur die Forschung. .
