Description : Read Now The English Wits by Michelle O'Callaghan and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries the inns of court and fashionable london taverns developed a culture of clubbing, urban sociability and wit. the convivial societies that emerged created rituals to define social identities and to engage in literary play and political discussion. michelle o'callaghan argues that the lawyer-wits, including john hoskyns, in company with authors such as john donne, ben jonson and thomas coryate, consciously reinvigorated humanist traditions of learned play. their experiments with burlesque, banquet literature, parody and satire resulted in a volatile yet creative dialogue between civility and licence, and between pleasure and the violence of scurrilous words. the wits inaugurated a mode of literary fellowship that shaped the history and literature of sociability in the seventeenth century. this study will provide many insights for historians and literary scholars of the period.

Description : Read Now Richard Carew The Examination Of Men S Wits by Rocío G. Sumillera and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. juan huarte de san juan (1529-1588) was a spanish physician and natural philosopher who strove to answer why men possess specific natural abilities that prepare them to excel only in particular fields of knowledge. with his treatise examen de ingenios para las ciencias (baeza, 1575), dedicated to king philip ii, huarte hoped to form a body of naturally accomplished professionals by providing readers with clues to identify their leading wit and the career path associated with it. the book experienced such overwhelming success in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries—it underwent fifty-five editions in six different languages—that it is now considered one of the most influential spanish scientific books of the early modern period. the present edition modernizes the text of richard carew’s the examination of men’s wits (london, 1594), the first rendering into english of huarte’s work—via a previous italian translation. in addition, the introduction contextualizes both the spanish and the english texts and their authors, discusses the censorship imposed by the inquisition, the (often deliberate) textual divergences of the english translation, the multiple translations and editions the book underwent in early modern europe, and its domestic and european reception, with a focus on the english scientific, educational and literary arenas. william camden, john marston, ben jonson and sir francis bacon are some of the household names acquainted with huarte’s theories, thanks to richard carew’s widely read english version.

Description : Read Now Death And Compassion by Dan Wylie and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. examines what literature reveals about human attitudes towards elephants and who shows compassion towards them elephants are in dire straits – again. they were virtually extirpated from much of africa by european hunters in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, but their numbers resurged for a while in the heyday of late-colonial conservation efforts in the twentieth. now, according to one estimate, an elephant is being killed every fifteen minutes. this is at the same time that the reasons for being especially compassionate and protective towards elephants are now so well-known that they have become almost a cliché: their high intelligence, rich emotional lives including a capacity for mourning, caring matriarchal societal structures, that strangely charismatic grace. saving elephants is one of the iconic conservation struggles of our time. as a society we must aspire to understand how and why people develop compassion – or fail to do so – and what stories we tell ourselves about animals that reveal the relationship between ourselves and animals. this book is the first study to probe the primary features, and possible effects, of some major literary genres as they pertain to elephants south of the zambezi over three centuries: indigenous forms, early european travelogues, hunting accounts, novels, game ranger memoirs, scientists’ accounts, and poems. it examines what these literatures imply about the various and diverse attitudes towards elephants, about who shows compassion towards them, in what ways and why. it is the story of a developing contestation between death and compassion, between those who kill and those who love and protect. death and compassion is the first study to probe various literary genres. it examines what these literatures imply about human attitudes towards elephants and who shows compassion towards them. it is the story of a developing contestation between death and compassion, between those who kill and those who love and protect.
