Abstract

This volume presents, in a Portuguese version, three plays by Andrés Pociña, inspired in classical myths: Medeia em Camariñas, Atardecer em Mitilene, Antígona frente aos Juízes. An introduction to each one of these rewritings, by this scholar of the University of Granada, underlines the dialogue between the new versions and their classical references.

Abstract

The study of Ancient History is a process encompassing several fields of knowledge, various methods, several types of sources, sometimes including comparisons with other civilizations of antiquity or from other periods. Historiographical texts raise a methodical criticism which comprehend data from archaeology, but also from literature and, within this range, theatre, rhetoric, dialogues and specific treaties of the several disciplines. As a reflection of such a multidisciplinarity, this volume compiles a series of texts in which Ancient History dialogs with other subject areas, namely: hermeneutics, literature and arts, political rhetoric, philosophy, religion and reception of Ancient History in modernity.

Abstract

This book discusses the problem of the reception either of, or in, Thucydides' and Polybius' texts, examining its narrative, historiographical, literary and/or cultural perspectives. It is subdivided into eight meditations. The first meditation presents three methodological procedures (reception, mediation, comparison) which articulate the discussion about the main constituents (political failures, truths) of that problem along the other seven meditations.

Abstract

This ambitious and vivid study in six volumes explores the journey of a single, electrifying story, from its first incarnation in a medieval French poem through its prolific rebirth in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Juggler of Notre Dame tells how an entertainer abandons the world to join a monastery, but is suspected of blasphemy after dancing his devotion before a statue of the Madonna in the crypt. He is then saved when the statue, delighted by his skill, miraculously comes to life.Jan Ziolkowski tracks the poem from its medieval roots to its rediscovery in late nineteenth-century Paris, before its translation into English in Britain and the United States. The visual influence of the tale on Gothic revivalism and vice versa in America is carefully documented with lavish and inventive illustrations, and Ziolkowski concludes with an examination of the explosion of interest in The Juggler of Notre Dame in the twentieth century and its place in mass culture today.The Juggler of Notre Dame and the Medievalizing of Modernity is a rich case study for the reception of the Middle Ages in modernity. Spanning centuries and continents, the medieval period is understood through the lens of its postmodern reception in Europe and America. Profound connections between the verbal and the visual are illustrated by a rich trove of images, including book illustrations, stained glass, postage stamps, architecture, and Christmas cards.Presented with great clarity and simplicity, his work is accessible to the general reader, while its many new discoveries will be valuable to academics in such fields and disciplines as medieval studies, medievalism, philology, literary history, art history, folklore, performance studies, and reception studies.

This ambitious and vivid study in six volumes explores the journey of a single, electrifying story, from its first incarnation in a medieval French poem through its prolific rebirth in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The Juggler of Notre Dame tells how an entertainer abandons the world to join a monastery, but is suspected of blasphemy after dancing his devotion before a statue of the Madonna in the crypt; he is saved when the statue, delighted by his skill, miraculously comes to life.Jan Ziolkowski tracks the poem from its medieval roots to its rediscovery in late nineteenth-century Paris, before its translation into English in Britain and the United States. The visual influence of the tale on Gothic revivalism and vice versa in America is carefully documented with lavish and inventive illustrations, and Ziolkowski concludes with an examination of the explosion of interest in The Juggler of Notre Dame in the twentieth century and its place in mass culture today. In this concluding volume, Ziolkowski explores the popularity of The Juggler of Notre Dame from the 1930s through the Second World War, especially in the Allied Resistance. Its popularity in the United States was subsequently maintained by figures as diverse as Tony Curtis and W. H. Auden, and although recently the story and medievalism have lost ground, the future of both holds promise.Presented with great clarity and simplicity, Ziolkowski's work is accessible to the general reader, while its many new discoveries will be valuable to academics in such fields and disciplines as medieval studies, medievalism, philology, literary history, art history, folklore, performance studies, and reception studies.
