Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book is a journey through the fairy-tale wardrobe, explaining how the mercurial nature of fashion has shaped and transformed the Western fairy-tale tradition. Many of fairy tale’s most iconic images are items of dress: the glass slippers, the red capes, the gowns shining like the sun, and the red shoes. The material cultures from which these items have been conjured reveal the histories of patronage, political intrigue, class privilege, and sexual politics behind the most famous fairy tales. The book not only reveals the sartorial truths behind Cinderella’s lost slippers, but reveals the networks of female power woven into fairy tale itself.

Download or read book Fairy Tale Review written by Kate Bernheimer and published by Wayne State University Press. This book was released on 2015-06-06 with total page 216 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: When we speak of grey as a location, placing a thing into a grey area, the color represents territory where the definite becomes lost. Grey lets us know that the truth is not always clear; even the most well-known paths can turn strange when a low grey cloud of fog rolls in. Grey is an act of subtraction, the loss of sun, joy, and color. Regrets are the natural property of grey hairs, said Dickens. Since grey is a symbol for the loss of youth, it seems a fitting issue for a theme about youth who are lost. Getting lost is one of the most widely used narrative vehicles of all time. Once characters become lost, they can stumble upon anything—it’s a light-speed bullet train between credibility and suspension of disbelief. Falling down a rabbit hole or stepping off the trail in a labyrinthine wood can transport a character to another world entirely in a manner of seconds. When a protagonist starts to get lost, something exciting is about to happen.

Summary Book Review Arthurian Literature XX :

Download or read book Arthurian Literature XX written by Keith Busby and published by DS Brewer. This book was released on 2003 with total page 230 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Studies of major Arthurian works and authors in Old French, Middle High German, Middle English, and of one important novel by C. S. Lewis. Arthurian Literature continues the policy of alternating themed issues and miscellanies. This varied collection includes studies of major Arthurian works and authors in Old French, Middle High German, Middle English, and ofone important novel by C.S. Lewis. A controversial textual crux in Chrétien's Yvain, debated vigorously by scholars in the late 1980s, is revisited, while the narrative function of clothing in Chrétien's romances comes under review. An enigmatic and linguistically difficult passage from Der jüngere Titurel is translated and discussed, and an article on Der arme Heinrich studies this pious tale in the context of its generic affiliations: while not strictly speaking an Arthurian romance, it deserves consideration here as a work of one of medieval Germany's most significant writers of Arthurian romance. There is discussion of Thomas Chestre's adoption of the lai as a vehicle for social criticism in his Middle English adaptation of Marie de France's Lanval; the evolution of Arthurian romance in medieval England is also the primary concern in a study of The Awntyrs off Arthure. The figure of Arthur himself is central to an examination of the Middle English Prose Brut, and the delicate political implications of Malory's Morte Darthur are explored. Finally, C.S. Lewis's transformation and use ofthe figures of Uther Pendragon and Merlin in That Hideous Strength is explored.

Download or read book Revival: Roman Life and Manners Under the Early Empire (1913) written by Ludwig Henrich Friedlaender and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-03-29 with total page 726 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Every attempted delineation of the manners and customs of Imperial Rome must necessarily include a survey, as exhaustive as may be, of the spectacles, as the best measure of her grandeur, and as indicative in many ways of her moral and intellectual condition. Originally, for the most part, religious celebrations, they became, even in the later Republic, the best means of purchasing popular favour, and, under the Empire, of keeping the populace contented. Augustus, the tale runs, once reproached Pylades the Pantomime for his jealousy of a rival, and Pylades replied: 'It is to your advantage, Caesar, that the people concerns itself about us'. But these spectacles effected more even than the diversion of popular interest; their magnificence was a gauge of the popularity of the sovereign. The emperors, like Louis XIV, knew how admiration aids absolute autocracy; like Napoleon, that the imagination of the people must be excited: splendid festivals were one of their most indispensable and most constant devices. Even Caligula, according to Josephus, was honoured and beloved by the folly of the populace; the women and the youth did not desire his death; distributions of meat, the games and the gladiatorial combats had won their hearts, for such were the delights of the mob: the lavishing of these gifts was nominally due to consideration for the populace, though the gladiatorial combats were only intended to sate the monarch's lust of blood.

Summary Book Review Die 36 Ansichten des Münchner Olympiaturms - The 36 Views of the Olympic Tower Munich :

Download or read book Die 36 Ansichten des Münchner Olympiaturms - The 36 Views of the Olympic Tower Munich written by Emka and published by BoD – Books on Demand. This book was released on 2012 with total page 62 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Als der Olympiaturm 40 und M nchen 850 Jahre alt wurden und die Olympischen Sommerspiele in M nchen sich bald zum 40. mal j hren war es Zeit f r Geschenke. Das Motto der 850-Jahr-Feier war "Br cken bauen" und das Geburtstagskind, der Olympiaturm, das Ideale Motiv: Als Funkturm eine technische Br cke, ein Symbol f r Pressefreiheit w hrend der Olympiade, Teil der Partnerschaft von M nchen mit Sapporo - damals Austragungsort der Olympischen Winterspiele - und schlie lich Zeuge internationaler Sportveranstaltungen, multikultureller Events und Ausflugsziel zahlreicher M nchner und Touristen zugleich. Fasziniert von den Japanischen Holzschnitten - besonders den Serien von Hokusai und Hiroshige - und um die Br cke nach Japan zu st rken, zeigt EMKA im japonistischen Stil den Olympiaturm in der Serie "die 36 Ansichten des M nchner Olympiaturms," angelehnt an "die 36 Ansichten des Fuji." Dabei ist der Olympiaturm Gast in Szenen des Alltags, Teil von Landschaften oder Mittelpunkt von Portraits. EMKA zeigt in seinen Bildern keinen bestimmten Moment sondern allgemeing ltige Aufnahmen: "Es k nnte heute oder gestern gewesen sein. Vielleicht auch erst morgen. Oder war es gar nicht so? Aber es k nnte so gewesen sein." EMKA setzt nicht auf die naturgetreue Wiedergabe sondern zeigt Wesen und Atmosph re der Subjekte. Das Bild setzt sich erst beim Betrachter vollst ndig zusammen. Die Bilder entstanden mit Spr hlack und Schablonen, in exzentrischen Farben, nicht weil sie schrill sind, sondern einfach anders. Eine Technik die besonders mit der Renaissance von Street Art wieder hochmodern wurde. Dabei setzt EMKA auf eine Technik, die zwar die Bilder vergleichbar den Holzschnitte reproduzierbar macht, aber besonders in diesem Fall doch Unikate schafft. As the Olympic Tower was getting 40 and Munich 850 years old and soon there had to be celebrated the 40 years of the Olympic Games in Munich, it was time to give presents. The concept oft he festivities was "building bridges" and the felici

Summary Book Review Women and Death :

Download or read book Women and Death written by Helen Fronius and published by Camden House. This book was released on 2008 with total page 282 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Identifies and analyzes thematizations of women and death from the past five centuries, illuminating the present and recent past. The theme of women and death is pervasive in the German culture of the past five centuries. With the conviction that only an interdisciplinary approach can explore a typology as far-reaching and significant as this, and in accordance with the feminist tenet that images are accountable for norms, this volume investigates how iconic representations of women and death came about and why they endure. Traditionally, representations of women as agents of death -- when they have been considered at all -- have been considered separately from women as victims, as though there was no shared thematic ground. Here, familiar depictions of female victims are examined alongside the more unsettling spectacle of women as killers, exposing cultural assumptions. Essays explore, among others, the themes of virgin sacrifice and female infanticides, Death and the Maiden in art, female vampires in literature, and women killersin the media. Others compare cultural practices such as female mourning across historical contexts, examining change and the reasons for it. The authors' judgments eschew the simplistic and programmatic, contributing not just to current research in German literature, but also to understanding of cultural history in general.

Bottigheimer, Anna Linton, Bettina Bildhauer, Mary Lindemann, Helen Fronius, Anna Richards, Jürgen Barkhoff, Lawrence Kramer, Kathrin Hoffmann-Curtius, Clare Bielby, Gisela Ecker.
