Charles Kingsley And The Book Of Nature, John C. Hawley Dec 1991

Charles Kingsley And The Book Of Nature, John C. Hawley

English

Stephen W. Sykes has written that theological "views are neither right nor wrong by being liberal in character. Only a church," he argues, "which has despaired of the possibility of rational argument about theology altogether could adopt such a stance."1 Yet Paul Avis has gone so far as to suggest that "Anglicanism enshrines a principle of reverent agnosticism. It takes seriously the limitations of our knowledge and readily confesses that our grasp of the truth is circumscribed by mystery, a light shining in the darkness."2 From the Cambridge Platonists and Jeremy Taylor, to Bishop Joseph Butler's Analogy ...

"Interpretative Aims And Textual-Critical Decisions: Some Historical Constraints In The Discrimination Of Textual Versions", Patrick G. Scott

Faculty Publications

Responds to a recent article by Peter Shillingsburg (in Studies in Bibliography , 1991)on the taxonomy of authorial revision or textual versions, arguing that for critical, biographical and historical study the editor (and interpreter) is constrained in the choice of variant by the purpose for which the text is being used. Examples are drawn from Victorian authors, including Alfred Tennyson, specifically the versions of Maud, and John Henry Newman, specifically successive versions of what became The Idea of the University. Originally presented at a symposium on Shillingsburg's article at the Textual and Bibliographical Studies Section, South Atlantic Modern Language ...

William Blake And The Language Of Adam By Robert N. Essick, James C. Mckusick Oct 1991

William Blake And The Language Of Adam By Robert N. Essick, James C. Mckusick

English Faculty Publications

Review by James C. McKusick. William Blake and the Language of Adam is a welcome addition to our knowledge of the Romantic preoccupation with the mystery of linguistic origins, and it seems destined to become a model of bold, incisive, and carefully researched scholarly analysis of literary and artistic creation from a broad interdisciplinary perspective. Essick's impeccable command of Blake's poetry and visual art is complemented by an extensive knowledge of the history of linguistics and an open-minded (yet critical) understanding of current issues in semiotics, phenomenology, and post-structuralist literary theory. William Blake and the Language of Adam ...

As if all this were not enough, Liu often apologizes for not providing more, as when he admits that "full proof" of one of his hypotheses "opens to view ... a research field not as fully investigated as others and too ...
