Turning Learned Authority Into Royal Supremacy: Elizabeth I'S Learned Persona And Her University Orations, Linda Shenk Jan 2003

Turning Learned Authority Into Royal Supremacy: Elizabeth I'S Learned Persona And Her University Orations, Linda Shenk

Linda Shenk

When the princess Elizabeth studied languages and rhetoric with William Grindal and Roger Ascham, she acquired more than practical skills. She earned the right to depict herself as a learned prince. Throughout the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries, the image of the educated monarch had gained particular political currency when humanist thinkers marketed the schoolroom as the necessary training ground for both king and counselor. Learned status served as proof that one was sufficiently wise and virtuous to hold political office.


To Be A Woman: Shakespeare's Patriarchal Viewpoint, Conley Greer Jan 2003

To Be A Woman: Shakespeare's Patriarchal Viewpoint, Conley Greer

The Corinthian

Shakespeare's characterization of women necessitates further study and discussion to fully appreciate his genius for interpreting human nature. Two plays in particular, Othello, The Moor of Venice and Measure for Measure, provide excellent female characters for scholarly analysis.


Figure, Image, And The Shape Of Time In Shakespeare's History Plays, Susan Walker Jan 2001

Figure, Image, And The Shape Of Time In Shakespeare's History Plays, Susan Walker

Inquiry: The University of Arkansas Undergraduate Research Journal

Shakespeare began his career as a dramatist by writing the first of a series of plays remarking upon English history from the Middle Ages through the reign of Henry VIII. Most notable of this historic chronicle are the eight plays, or two tetralogies, that dramatize the tumultuous period of civil conflict between 1399 and 1485. Some critics of Shakespeare's tetralogies have argued Shakespeare's intent to produce a single, unified, and providentially-ordered chronicle in which the deposition of Richard II may be viewed as the nascent event for the civil wars that culminated in Tudor accession to the crown ...

Images Of Women In Eighteenth Century English Chapbooks, From Banal Bickering To Fragile Females , Katherine Barber Fromm Jan 2000

Images Of Women In Eighteenth Century English Chapbooks, From Banal Bickering To Fragile Females , Katherine Barber Fromm

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

Eighteenth-century English chapbooks, an under-examined historical source, provide a rich panoply of images presented for popular consumption in cheap, ephemeral books. As part of popular culture, this humble literature changed over the course of the century. Of interest here are the images presented to women during this most significant century of chapbooks. Those of earlier decades retold traditional fairy tales and legends and reprinted jest books. In addition, there is a recurring strand of bickering and humorous exchanges between men and women. Ballads that depicted conjugal and marital relationships often found their way into chapbooks, and other chapbooks borrowed from ...

Ezra And Dorothy Pound: Letters In Captivity, 1945-1946, Robert Spoo, Omar Pound

These fascinating letters capture the most traumatic experience of Ezra Pound's life, when he was incarcerated at the end of World War II and indicted for treason. Omar Pound and Robert Spoo have collected and edited the unpublished correspondence between the poet and his wife, combining it with restricted military orders and extensive references to FBI documents, previously unknown photographs, and an insightful introduction, to create the definitive work on this period of Pound's life.


Early Modern English Understanding Of Islam Through The 1649 Alcoran Of Mahomet, Lemiya M. Almas Jan 1999

Early Modern English Understanding Of Islam Through The 1649 Alcoran Of Mahomet, Lemiya M. Almas

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

In search of sources that dealt with Islam in the 16th and 17thc I came across Samuel Chew's The Crescent and the Rose. Chew's book is best likened to a catalog where he manages to list a great number of works written prior to and during Early Modern England that dealt primarily with Islam. Of the thousands of sources that Chew listed one was of particular interest to me, namely the first English translation of the Koran in 1649. With the help of my major professor and the staff in the microform room at Parks Library, I was ...

'Judith' And The Rhetoric Of Heroism In Anglo‐Saxon England, Christopher R. Fee Jan 1997

'Judith' And The Rhetoric Of Heroism In Anglo‐Saxon England, Christopher R. Fee

English Faculty Publications

The Old English Judith differs from the Liber Judith of the Vulgate at several crucial points, and in one particularly important way. In the Vulgate version of the story, Judith is a heroine in every sense of the word: she is a tropological symbol of Chastity at battle with Licentiousness, an allegorical symbol of the Church in its constant and eventually triumphant battle with Satan, and an inspirational figure who infuses her warriors with much needed courage and confidence; but the Vulgate Judith is also, in a very real sense, the agent by which God's will is executed and ...


Jane Howell And Subverting Shakespeare: Where Do We Draw The Lines?, Linda Shenk Jan 1995

Jane Howell And Subverting Shakespeare: Where Do We Draw The Lines?, Linda Shenk

Linda Shenk

When Ralph Berry asks RSC director Bill Alexander to explain how a director chooses to do a Shakespearean play in a certain manner, Alexander replies: "For me, it all boils down to this: how best can I reveal this play, how best can I release my own perception of the play, my own feeling of what it's about, and what it says and why he wrote it" (Berry 178). To fulfill these goals, directors often choose to set a play in a different historical context, devise a thematic doubling scheme, and/or cut lines to emphasize a specific concept ...

Samuel Butler’S Way Of All Flesh As A Sociological Novel, David Carter Jul 1976

Samuel Butler’S Way Of All Flesh As A Sociological Novel, David Carter

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

To scholars of Victorian literature, Samuel Butler has always been a rebel who strikes out at society with wide-ranging criticism. After years of studying subjects as varied as music, art, biology, literature, and theology, Butler felt (like many Victorian writers) that he could make valuable social comments with his satires, travelogues, biological studies and one novel.

Critical studies of Butler have tended to treat in broad outline all facets of his life and work. This study, however, examines in depth Butler’s novel The Way of All Flesh, as the focal point of his critical analysis of Victorian society. It ...

In Search Of Nevil Shute, Julian Smith Oct 1971

In Search Of Nevil Shute, Julian Smith

The Courier

Because it contains much unpublished autobiographical material and early or variant drafts of his published fiction, the Nevil Shute Norway manuscript collection on microfilm at Syracuse University offers an unusually fine chance to study in depth a popular writer who brought pleasure to millions of readers through a career spanning three decades.

The essence of "Nevil Shute" is found most properly through his novels, not his life; therefore, the major emphasis here is on his fiction. But as his fiction grew out of his experiences and interests in a way not common among popular writers, a brief guide to his ...

Preliminary Calendar Of The Nevil Shute Norway Manuscripts Microfilm, Howard L. Applegate

The Courier

Syracuse makes this film available to responsible scholars with the understanding that users of the microfilm will cite the National Library of Australia as the repository owning the original manuscripts and will make all references to the numbering identification system prepared by the National Library.

A Literary Comparison Of Daniel Defoe's Account Of The Great London Plague Of 1665 With Two Contemporary Diarists Concerning The Same Event, Gale Larson

Languages and Literature Undergraduate Theses

The purpose of this thesis is to institute a comparison among the contemporary accounts of the Great London Plague. The contemporary accounts shall be taken from the diaries of Samuel Pepys and John Evelyn, and Daniel Defoe's Journal of the Plague Year. Defoe's work, since it is more complete in its treatment of the dreadful visitation of 1665 shall be used as the basis of the comparison. The comparison shall be developed chronologically; from the inception of the plague to its cessation. The objective of the comparison shall be the demonstration of Defoe's superiority over the other ...

The Compoti Of The Bursars Of Whalley Abbey, Lancashire, 1508-1536, James A. Brundage

History Dissertations

The purpose of this study is to investigate the condition of early sixteenth-oentury monasticism in England as it appears from the evidence in the financial accounts of the bursars of Whalley Abbey. The Whalley Abbey compoti provide a particularly fruitful field of study since a rather considerable body of documents from this Cistercian monastery have been preserved and a large number of these documents have already been published.

Narrative Of The Loss Of The Earl Of Abergavenny, East Indiaman, Captain John Wordsworth, Which Drove On The Shambles, Off The Bill Of Portland, And Sunk In Twelve Fathoms Water, February 5, 1805, Archibald Duncan

Texts relating to the Earl of Abergavenny (ship)

The Earl of Abergevnny was an East Indiaman which was wrecked in 1805 off the Isle of Portland, England in Weymouth Bay. The sinking was a sensational event due to the high number of lives lost, the amount of high-value of cargo that sank and the controversial testimony of survivors. Captain John Wordsworth, brother of the Romantic poet William Wordsworth, perished in the wreck.
