Survey of the relationship between music and literature in 14c France, Italy and Britain, with appendix of all songs attributed to Chaucer. An absorbing survey... He is an expert on the French song of the period, consequently his wider view of Chaucer's musical background is well worth reading ... and he has much to say about Italy and England. The music is first-rate, and early music performers will find these songs a welcome addition to their repertory. EARLY MUSIC Although Chaucer himself was never described as a musician, a number of his poems are based on French models which belongto a well-established musical tradition, and there are also many references to musical activities in his larger works. This is the starting point for Dr Wilkins's book, which explores both the wider question of the relationship between music and literature in the fourteenth century and the specific area of Chaucer `songs'. He surveys the musical and literary scene in France, Italy and Britain during Chaucer's lifetime, with special emphasis on composers such as Machaut and Landini, and on the differences in national styles. The performance of music and the instruments used are also fully explored. The discussion of Chaucer's musical background is illustrated in the accompanyingsettings presented with words by Chaucer - ten ballades, three complaintes (or chants royaux), and one rondeau. Fully illustrated with black and white photographs and musical examples. New edition; first published 1979, 1980.

The family is humanity's oldest and most basic social institution, but today it is fragile, fractured, and fraught in many liberal lands. This volume gathers scholars from sociology, psychology, history, religion, ethics, law, and medicine from five continents to analyze the complex nature and place of the family in character formation and human flourishing. The chapters study the impact of catechesis, schooling, work, and discipline on the development of individual moral agency and responsibility. They document the critical roles of family love, trust, fidelity, and story-telling in shaping the moral character of all family members from infancy to old age. They describe effective strategies of resistance and resilience for family members who face abuse, divorce, death, chauvinism, racism, and homophobia. And several chapters challenge modern arguments and policies that aim to flatten if not abolish the marital family, even while they call for family law reforms. Contributions by Enola G. Aird, Helen Alvaré, Robert N. Bellah, Margaret Jane Brining, Michael J. Broyde, Marcia Bunge, Stephen Carter, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Robyn Fivuush, Patrick Hornbeck, Andreas Kruse, Nadia Marais, Gordon Mikoski, Bonnie Miller-McLemore, Patrick Parkinson, Katja Patzel-Mattern, Sabina Pauen, Stephen G.

In 1952 Ralph Ellison won the National Book Award for his Kafkaesque and claustrophobic novel about the life of a nameless young black man in New York City. Although Invisible Man has remained the only novel that Ellison published in his lifetime, it is generally regarded as one of the most important works of fiction in our century. This new reading of a classic work examines Ellison's relation to and critique of the American literary canon by demonstrating that the pattern of allusions in Invisible Man forms a literary-critical subtext which challenges the accepted readings of such major American authors as Emerson, Melville, and Twain. Modeling his argument on Foucault's analysis of the asylum, Nadel analyzes the institution of the South to show how it moved blacks from "enslavement" to "slavery" to "invisibility"—all in the interest of maintaining an organization of power based on racial caste. He then demonstrates the ways Ellison wrote in the modernist/surreal tradition to trace symbolically the history of blacks in America as they moved not only from the nineteenth century to the twentieth, and from the rural South to the urban North, but as they moved (sometimes unnoticed) through American fiction. It is on this latter movement that Nadel focuses his criticism, first demonstrating theoretically that allusions can impel reconsideration of the alluded-to text and thus function as a form of literary criticism, and then reading the specific criticism implied by Ellison's allusions to Emerson's essays and Lewis Mumford's The Golden Days, as well as to "Benito Cereno" and The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Nadel also considers Ellison's allusions to Whitman, Eliot, Joyce, and the New Testament. Invisible Criticism will be of interest not only to students of American and Afro-American literature but also to those concerned about issues of literary theory, particularly in the areas of intertextual relationships, canonicity, and rehistoricism.

Jungian Psychoanalysis

He is the beginning, middle, and end of the work” (Jung 1943/1967, para. 283). If we accept this description and T. S. Eliot's statement, “In my beginning is my end,” then the separation of beginnings from endings becomes impossible.

Jungian Psychoanalysis or Analytical Psychology has evolved in unexpected and exciting ways, exploring new paths in the spirit of Jung. The openness and diversity of the Jungian approach are captured in this collection of bold new essays by some of today's most outstanding Jungian analysts. Jungian Psychoanalysis explains what Jungian Psychoanalysis is all about, how it relates to other types of contemporary therapy, and what it can contribute to the debates now taking place among psychotherapists all over the world, as dissatisfaction grows with the limitations of both drug treatments and cognitive-behavioral therapies. This book vividly depicts where Jungian Psychoanalysis has been, where it stands today in relation to a wide array of clinical issues, and where it is headed as it moves into its second century. "In the thirty-six chapters of Jungian Psychoanalysis we meet some of the leading thinkers and therapists who embody the living spirit of Jung's work in action. This is a fascinating and indispensable book, not only for anyone who practices within the spirit of Jung's thought but also for anyone who takes up that spirit as a way of conducting their own life."-Robert D. Romanyshyn, author of The Wounded Researcher: Doing Research with Soul in Mind "Jungian Psychoanalysis is an indispensable resource. Each chapter brings together Jung's ideas, multidisciplinary sources, other psychologies, case illustrations, and the author's own reflections. This combination results in exciting new directions for clinical practice. The book skillfully balances erudition with respect for the mysterious workings of the psyche."-Lawrence R. Alschuler, author of The Psychopolitics of Liberation: Political Consciousness from a Jungian Perspective "Jung urged his students to work in the spirit rather than the letter of his depth-psychological theories. In Jungian Psychoanalysis, Jungian analysts from six continents present a contemporary review of post-Jungian goals, methods, analytic process, and training. Their essays provide compelling accounts of the revelations and insights encountered by those who experience what it means to be human through a twenty-first-century Jungian lens."-Beverley Zabriskie, President, Jungian Psychoanalytic Association, New York "The analytic tradition initiated by C.G. Jung continues to evolve and develop new insights. Jungian Psychoanalysis is essential reading for therapists, analysts, and scholars who want to understand the most contemporary thinking in this dynamic field"-George B. Hogenson, author of Jung's Struggle with Freud Murray Stein is the author of The Principle of Individuation (2006), Jung's Map of the Soul (1998), and Transformation: Emergence of the Self (1998). Dr. Stein is President of the International School of Analytical Psychology, in Zurich.

The Bible today is weaponized by both liberals and conservatives, side cherry-picking their favorite verses. Have you ever wondered why the Bible lends itself to supporting contradictory positions in moral debates--why even the devil quotes Scripture? If so, you will enjoy this book. Haunted by Paradise reveals the unity and coherence of the Bible in the light of paradise. The Bible begins in Eden and ends in the new Jerusalem--in between, the Bible is haunted by the memory of paradise lost and the hope for paradise regained. With paradise as the interpretive key, Murphy unlocks biblical ethics. He shows that there is no Old Testament ethics or New Testament ethics--only a unified biblical ethics. In sixteen short chapters, this book addresses urgent moral questions about issues ranging from capital punishment to war, including divine justice, homosexuality, marriage, nature, racism, patriarchy, and work. In each chapter, Murphy shows how the Bible negotiates the tension between divine ideals and human realities.

The philosophical and theological study of aesthetics has a long and rich history, stretching back to Plato’s identification of ultimate goodness and beauty, together representing the eternal form. Recent trends in aesthetic theory, however, characterised by a focus on the ‘beautiful’ at the expense of the ‘good’, have made it an object of suspicion in the Orthodox Church. In its place, Greek theologians have sought to emphasise philokalia as a truer theological discipline. Seeking to reverse this trend, Chrysostomos Stamoulis brings into conversation a plethora of voices, from Church fathers to contemporary poets, and from a Marxist political theorist to a literary critic. Out of this dialogue, Stamoulis builds a model for the re-appropriation of Orthodoxy’s patristic and Byzantine past that is no longer defined in antithesis to the Western present. The openness he proposes allows us to perceive afresh the world ‘shot through with divinity’, if only we can lift our gaze to see it. Dismantling the false dichotomy, philokalia or aesthetics, is the first step.
