Abstract

Soso Tham (1873–1940), the acknowledged poet laureate of the Khasis of northeastern India, was one of the first writers to give written poetic form to the rich oral tradition of his people.Poet of landscape, myth and memory, Soso Tham paid rich and poignant tribute to his tribe in his masterpiece The Old Days of the Khasis. Janet Hujon’s vibrant new translation presents the English reader with Tham’s long poem, which keeps a rich cultural tradition of the Khasi people alive through its retelling of old narratives and acts as a cultural signpost for their literary identity.This book is essential reading for anyone with an interest in Indian literature and culture and in the interplay between oral traditions and written literary forms.This edition includes:• English translation• Critical apparatus• Embedded audio recordings of the original text

Abstract

This series, developed from Tom Burton’s groundbreaking study, William Barnes’s Dialect Poems: A Pronunciation Guide (The Chaucer Studio Press, 2010), sets out to demonstrate for the first time what all of Barnes’s dialect poems would have sounded like in the pronunciation of his own time and place. Every poem is accompanied by a facing-page phonemic transcript and by an audio recording freely available from this website.

Abstract

"This is the second volume in a series that sets out to provide a phonemic transcript and an audio recording of each individual poem in Barnes’s three collections of Poems of Rural Life in the Dorset Dialect. Beginning with two poems that inspired Vaughan Williams to set them to music, and ending with a paean of praise for the poet’s native county, this second collection contains 105 poems of immense range and power. There are poems of longing, love, and loss; pain and protest; tears and laughter; grief and consolation; feasting and celebration; music and birdsong; falsehood, friendship, and faith; generosity and meanness; bad temper and good; stasis and travel; flowers and trees; storm and calm. “Here,” as Dryden said of Chaucer’s poems, “is God’s plenty”."

Darauf folgt die Geschichte der Rezeption des Poems in der Sovjetunion (mit einer abschließenden kurzen Bewertung des Poems) und schließlich eine Einordung des Poems in das Gesamtwerk Majakovskijs.

Abstract

Die vorliegende Untersuchung beschäftigt sich mit der russischen Versepik im 19. Jahrhundert. Ohne auf die literaturtheoretische Diskussion um den allgemeinen Gattungs- und Typusbegriff näher einzugehen, soll versucht werden, einen Beitrag zur Geschichte der literarischen Form zu schreiben, die im russischen Sprachgebrauch mit "poema" (Poem) bezeichnet wird.
