Abstract

"The poem Kalevipoeg, over 19,000 lines in length, was composed by Friedrich Reinhold Kreutzwald (1803–1882) on the basis on folklore material. It was published in an Estonian-German bilingual edition in six instalments between 1857 and 1861; it went on to become the Estonian national epic. This first English-language monograph on the Kalevipoeg sheds light on&#xD;various aspects of the emergence, creation and reception of the text.&#xD;The first chapter sketches the objectives of the book and gives a short&#xD;summary of the contents of the twenty tales of the epic, while the second&#xD;chapter treats the significance of the epic against the cultural background of&#xD;nineteenth-century Estonia.&#xD;The third chapter scrutinizes the emergence of the text in more&#xD;detail and, in its second part, takes a closer look at the many intertextual&#xD;connections and the traces the epic material has left in Estonian literature&#xD;up to the present time. The fourth chapter is a detailed case study of one&#xD;debated passage of the fifteenth tale.&#xD;The fifth and the six chapters deal with the German reception of the epic,&#xD;which partly took place earlier than the reception in Estonia. In the fifth&#xD;chapter, the first reviews and an early treatise by the German scholar Wilhelm Schott (1863) are discussed. The sixth chapter presents the new genre of ‘rewritings’ of the epic – texts which cannot be labelled as translations but are rather new creations on the basis of Kreutzwald’s text.&#xD;In the seventh chapter several versions of these retellings and adaptations&#xD;are compared in order to show the stability of some core material conveyed&#xD;by various authors. A concluding chapter stresses the significance of foreign&#xD;reception in the canonization process of the Kalevipoeg. At the end, a&#xD;comprehensive bibliography and an index are added."

Abstract

The sestina is a form in which words repeat regularly, intricately, appearing and reappearing in new contexts with new meanings. Sam Lohmann’s Unless As Stone Is emerged from a few years of living with Dante’s sestina, “Al poco giorno e al gran cerchio d’ombra.” He allowed the text to appear in its own new — if irregularly scheduled — contexts. New translations, new scenery, new meanings; new phrases entered the poem (from García Lorca, from Sappho, from strangers and from loved ones) and found their own patterns. What resulted is a serial poem in seven movements, incorporating several strategies of reincorporation. “Quandunque i colli fanno più nera ombra” — “All our oddity operates / on changing verity.”

Abstract

King Richard II, pièce historique qui ouvre la seconde tétralogie de Shakespeare, est joué pour la première fois en 1595, par la troupe « The Chamberlain’s Men », sans doute dans le théâtre de James Burbage. Si la pièce a attiré de nombreux metteurs en scène britanniques depuis l’époque élisabéthaine jusqu’à nos jours, ce n’est qu’en 1947 qu’elle a été représentée en France sous la direction de Jean Vilar à Avignon - dans ces deux pays, cependant, les représentations de King Richard II se son...

Abstract

DES PREMIERS FILMS Pathé aux écrans numériques, la marionnette a connu une vie filmique à éclipses, surgissant soudain et par éclats chez les plus grands, de Chaplin à Roberto Benigni, de Renoir et Bergman à Spielberg, Kitano et Tim Burton. Longtemps confinée dans l’animation, elle connaît aujourd’hui un spectaculaire retour sur les écrans du monde entier.

Abstract

Ce livre, consacré à l’adaptation théâtrale en Irlande de 1970 à 2007, s’attache aux réécritures dramatiques qui virent le jour en des temps marqués par une effervescence notable sur le plan des adaptations. Le bornage temporel initial s’explique par une renaissance théâtrale en Irlande à cette époque, renouveau marqué notamment par l’apparition de dramaturges majeurs, tels Brian Friel, Tom Murphy ou Thomas Kilroy. Les travaux rassemblés dans cet ouvrage s’efforcent de poser un regard neuf su...

Abstract

Que ce soit dans les déserts ou les marécages, sur les terres d’altitude ou au milieu des océans, l’homme a de tout temps su faire preuve de sa capacité à adapter ses pratiques agricoles aux terres les plus inhospitalières. En marge des grandes évolutions de l’agriculture, il a en effet su développer des conduites culturales originales qui sont autant de réponses à la sévérité des contraintes physiques et aux aléas de l’histoire. Stratégies simples de survie, solutions techniques parfois complexes, les agricultures de l’extrême présentées dans cet ouvrage étonnent par leur diversité et leur créativité. Elles s’inscrivent dans des contextes sociaux et culturels contrastés, tout en se faisant étrangement écho d’un continent à l’autre. Rédigé dans un style accessible à tous, abondamment illustré, cet ouvrage à plusieurs mains donne à découvrir la surprenante palette des « agricultures singulières » qui, au-delà de l’héritage exceptionnel qu’elles représentent, témoignent de l’infinie variété des formes d’agriculture développées dans le monde.

Abstract

The book uses an economic lens to identify the main features of climate-smart agriculture (CSA), its likely impact, and the challenges associated with its implementation. Drawing upon theory and concepts from agricultural development, institutional, and resource economics, this book expands and formalizes the conceptual foundations of CSA. Focusing on the adaptation/resilience dimension of CSA, the text embraces a mixture of conceptual analyses, including theory, empirical and policy analysis, and case studies, to look at adaptation and resilience through three possible avenues: ex-ante reduction of vulnerability, increasing adaptive capacity, and ex-post risk coping.The book is divided into three sections. The first section provides conceptual framing, giving an overview of the CSA concept and grounding it in core economic principles. The second section is devoted to a set of case studies illustrating the economic basis of CSA in terms of reducing vulnerability, increasing adaptive capacity and ex-post risk coping. The final section addresses policy issues related to climate change. Providing information on this new and important field in an approachable way, this book helps make sense of CSA and fills intellectual and policy gaps by defining the concept and placing it within an economic decision-making framework. This book will be of interest to agricultural, environmental, and natural resource economists, development economists, and scholars of development studies, climate change, and agriculture. It will also appeal to policy-makers, development practitioners, and members of governmental and non-governmental organizations interested in agriculture, food security and climate change.
