Thus Burst Hippocrene: Studies in the Olympian Imagination is a collection of nine papers in comparative literature. Discussing the greatest Olympians in world literature, including Homer, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, Dante, Shakespeare, Milton, Li Bo, Du Fu, and the Bible authors, it is both daring in conception and wide-ranging in scope. Freely drawing on the author’s knowledge of Classical Greek, Latin, Italian, French, German, Spanish, English, and Chinese as well as on his conversance with the literatures of these languages, the papers are truly comparative, making discoveries unique to the author’s characteristic multi-lingual, multi-cultural approach. In going through the book, the reader will be pleasantly surprised by its originality, by its amazing depth and breadth, and by the new light it sheds on topics that are of interest to scholars and students of comparative literature. Written in lucid language with no pretentious jargon, it will also appeal to the general reader who picks up a book simply for the joy of reading or for horizon-broadening without tears.

In 1946, E. V. Rieu's groundbreaking translation of The Odyssey established a cultural legacy that would bring the world's most compelling and influential literature to millions of readers around the globe. For over sixty-five years, Penguin Classics have been making works that were once the sole preserve of academics accessible to everyone; this catalogue offers a complete list of all titles in print across the list - more than 1,200 books, from Aristotle and Austen, to Zola and Zamyatin. 'The Penguin Classics, though I designed them to give pleasure even more than instruction, have been hailed as the greatest educative force of the twentieth century. And far be it for me to quarrel with that encomium, for there is no one whom they have educated more than myself' E. V. Rieu

This guide highlights the place of translation in our culture, encouraging awareness of the process of translating and the choices involved, making the translator more 'visible'. Concentrating on major writers and works, it covers translations out of many languages, from Greek to Hungarian, Korean to Turkish. For some works (e.g. Virgil's Aeneid) which have been much translated, the discussion is historical and critical, showing how translation has evolved over the centuries and bringing out the differences between versions. Elsewhere, with less familiar literatures, the Guide examines the extent to which translation has done justice to the range of work available.

The Paradise, which Dante called the sublime canticle, is perhaps the most ambitious book of The Divine Comedy. In this climactic segment, Dante's pilgrim reaches Paradise and encounters the Divine Will. The poet's mystical interpretation of the religious life is a complex and exquisite conclusion to his magnificent trilogy. Mark Musa's powerful and sensitive translation preserves the intricacy of the work while rendering it in clear, rhythmic English. His extensive notes and introductions to each canto make accessible to all readers the diverse and often abstruse ingredients of Dante's unparalleled vision of the Absolute: elements of Ptolemaic astronomy, medieval astrology and science, theological dogma, and the poet's own personal experiences.

Dante (1265-1321) is the greatest of Italian poets and his DIVINE COMEDY is the finest of all Christian allegories. To the consternation of his more academic admirers, who believed Latin to be the only proper language for dignified verse, Dante wrote his COMEDY in colloquial Italian, wanting it to be a poem for the common reader. This edition is translated by, and includes an Introduction by, Dorothy L. Sayers.

From Judgment to Passion

Devotion to the crucified Christ is one of the most familiar, yet most disconcerting artifacts of medieval European civilization. How and why did the images of the dying God-man and his grieving mother achieve such prominence, inspiring unparalleled religious creativity as well such imitative extremes as celibacy and self-flagellation? To answer this question, Rachel Fulton ranges over developments in liturgical performance, private prayer, doctrine, and art. She considers the fear occasioned by the disappointed hopes of medieval Christians convinced that the apocalypse would come soon, the revulsion of medieval Jews at being baptized in the name of God born from a woman, the reform of the Church in light of a new European money economy, the eroticism of the Marian exegesis of the Song of Songs, and much more. Devotion to the crucified Christ is one of the most familiar yet disconcerting artifacts of medieval European civilization. How and why did the images of the dying God-man and his grieving mother achieve such prominence, inspiring unparalleled religious creativity and emotional artistry even as they fostered such imitative extremes as celibacy, crusade, and self-flagellation? Magisterial in style and comprehensive in scope, From Judgment to Passion is the first systematic attempt to explain the origins and initial development of European devotion to Christ in his suffering humanity and Mary in her compassionate grief. Rachel Fulton examines liturgical performance, doctrine, private prayer, scriptural exegesis, and art in order to illuminate and explain the powerful desire shared by medieval women and men to identify with the crucified Christ and his mother. The book begins with the Carolingian campaign to convert the newly conquered pagan Saxons, in particular with the effort to explain for these new converts the mystery of the Eucharist, the miraculous presence of Christ's body at the Mass. Moving on to the early eleventh century, when Christ's failure to return on the millennium of his Passion (A.D. 1033) necessitated for believers a radical revision of Christian history, Fulton examines the novel liturgies and devotions that arose amid this apocalyptic disappointment. The book turns finally to the twelfth century when, in the wake of the capture of Jerusalem in the First Crusade, there occurred the full flowering of a new, more emotional sensibility of faith, epitomized by the eroticism of the Marian exegesis of the Song of Songs and by the artistic and architectural innovations we have come to think of as quintessentially high medieval. In addition to its concern with explaining devotional change, From Judgment to Passion presses a second, crucial question: How is it possible for modern historians to understand not only the social and cultural functions but also the experience of faith—the impulsive engagement with the emotions, sometimes ineffable, of prayer and devotion? The answer, magnificently exemplified throughout this book's narrative, lies in imaginative empathy, the same incorporation of self into story that lay at the heart of the medieval effort to identify with Christ and Mary in their love and pain.

Das aufregendste Debüt der letzten Jahre: die fesselnde Geschichte einer Liebe, die die Grenzen von Zeit und Raum überschreitet. Ein Mann fährt eine dunkle Straße entlang, als er plötzlich geblendet wird, sein Wagen in eine Schlucht stürzt und Feuer fängt. Er überlebt, wird mit schwersten Verbrennungen ins Krankenhaus eingeliefert - und hat in den Wochen der Rekonvaleszenz nur einen Gedanken: wie er nach seiner Entlassung Selbstmord begehen kann. Doch dann taucht eine mysteriöse Frau an seinem Krankenbett auf, die schöne Marianne Engel, Bildhauerin beeindruckender Gargoyles. Sie behauptet, sie seien einst Liebende gewesen - vor siebenhundert Jahren in Deutschland, als sie eine Nonne war und er ein Söldner auf der Flucht. Ist diese Frau verrückt? Oder ist sie der rettende Engel, der ihn aus seiner Verzweiflung und Todessehnsucht erlösen wird?
