Download or read book A People s Tragedy written by Eamon Duffy and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2020-11-26 with total page 272 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As an authority on the religion of medieval and early modern England, Eamon Duffy is preeminent. In his revisionist masterpiece The Stripping of the Altars, Duffy opened up new areas of research and entirely fresh perspectives on the origin and progress of the English Reformation. Duffy's focus has always been on the practices and institutions through which ordinary people lived and experienced their religion, but which the Protestant reformers abolished as idolatry and superstition. The first part of A People's Tragedy examines the two most important of these institutions: the rise and fall of pilgrimage to the cathedral shrines of England, and the destruction of the monasteries under Henry VIII, as exemplified by the dissolution of the ancient Anglo-Saxon monastery of Ely. In the title essay of the volume, Duffy tells the harrowing story of the Elizabethan regime's savage suppression of the last Catholic rebellion against the Reformation, the Rising of the Northern Earls in 1569. In the second half of the book Duffy considers the changing ways in which the Reformation has been thought and written about: the evolution of Catholic portrayals of Martin Luther, from hostile caricature to partial approval; the role of historians of the Reformation in the emergence of English national identity; and the improbable story of the twentieth century revival of Anglican and Catholic pilgrimage to the medieval Marian shrine of Walsingham. Finally, he considers the changing ways in which attitudes to the Reformation have been reflected in fiction, culminating with Hilary Mantel's gripping trilogy on the rise and fall of Henry VIII's political and religious fixer, Thomas Cromwell, and her controversial portrayal of Cromwell's Catholic opponent and victim, Sir Thomas More.
Download or read book Teaching Narrative written by Richard Jacobs and published by Springer. This book was released on 2018-04-12 with total page 214 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Narrative is everywhere and has unique powers: to enchant and inspire, to make sense of our lives and ourselves and to afford us an enriched understanding of alternative worlds and lives and of better futures – though narrative also has the potential to coerce and oppress. Narrative is at the centre at all stages of the English curriculum and has been the subject of a burgeoning critical industry. This timely volume addresses the many ways in which recent thinking has informed the teaching of narrative in university classrooms in the UK and the USA. Distinguished teachers from both countries range widely across narrative topics and genres, including the opportunities opened up by new technologies, and chapters articulate students’ own individual and collaborative experiences in the teaching/learning process. The result is a volume that explores the pleasurable challenges of working with students to help them appreciate and assess the power that narrative exerts, to become reflective critics of its inner workings as well as exponents of narrative themselves.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What is Early Modern History? offers a concise guide to investigations of the era from the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries and an entry-point to larger questions about how we divide and organize the past and how the discipline of history has evolved. Merry Wiesner-Hanks showcases the new research and innovative methods that have altered our understanding of this fascinating period. She examines various subfields and approaches in early modern history, and the marks of modernity that scholars have highlighted in these, from individualism to the Little Ice Age. Moving beyond Europe, she surveys the growth of the Atlantic World and global history, exploring key topics such as the Columbian Exchange, the slave trade, cultural interactions and blending, and the environment. She also considers popular and public representations of the early modern period, which are often how students – and others – first become curious. Elegantly written and passionately argued, What is Early Modern History? provides an essential invitation to the field for both students and scholars.

Download or read book Making Time written by Carolin Gebauer and published by Walter de Gruyter GmbH & Co KG. This book was released on 2021-04-19 with total page 395 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Responding to the current surge in present-tense novels, Making Time is an innovative contribution to narratological research on present-tense usage in narrative fiction. Breaking with the tradition of conceptualizing the present tense purely as a deictic category denoting synchronicity between a narrative event and its presentation, the study redefines present-tense narration as a fully-fledged narrative strategy whose functional potential far exceeds temporal relations between story and discourse. The first part of the volume presents numerous analytical categories that systematically describe the formal, structural, functional, and syntactic dimensions of present-tense usage in narrative fiction. These categories are then deployed to investigate the uses and functions of present-tense narration in selected twenty-first century novels, including Hilary Mantel’s Wolf Hall, Margaret Atwood’s Oryx and Crake, Ian McEwan’s Nutshell, and Irvine Welsh’s Skagboys. The seven case studies serve to illustrate the ubiquity of present-tense narration in contemporary fiction, ranging from the historical novel to the thriller, and to investigate the various ways in which the present tense contributes to narrative worldmaking.

Download or read book Modern Sonneteers Hilary Mantel and Critical Letters written by Ethan Lewis and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2021-01-13 with total page 251 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This series of critiques serves to help demarcate, as well as add to, three specific literary forums. The first section of the book, Modern Sonneteers, discusses the genre plied by countless pens since Petrarch’s inception of the sonnet, honed by Shakespeare, and cultivated through Donne, Milton, Keats, and Wordsworth, among others, showing that it thrives still. The twentieth century yielded a second Sonnet Golden Age reminiscent of the first at the apex of the English Renaissance. Auden, Borges, Cummings, Larkin, and Stokes comprise part of the cadre of recent masters. The second part of the book, Homage to Hilary Mantel, comprises half-a-dozen pieces on a pre-eminent novelist of our time, whose most notable achievement, The Thomas Cromwell Trilogy, enshrines and reconceives an earlier time. In counterpoint to her historical fiction, literary analyses of Mantel are of necessity new. The essays gathered here shed light on her work, and spur further inquiry. The third section, Critical Letters in Critical Times, compasses pensees written to students, colleagues, and friends regarding Shakespeare, Borges, Nabokov, Wordsworth, Tartt, Schmidt, poetry and ethics, and the sublime. Most of this work is predicated on our unprecedented circumstances ensuing from the COVID-19 pandemic. It stands to reason that our literary analyses will be colored by our situation for some critical times to come.
