Linking Letters: Translating Ancient History Into Medieval Romance, Alex Mueller May 2007

Linking Letters: Translating Ancient History Into Medieval Romance, Alex Mueller

Alex Mueller

In his prologue to the late fourteenth-century romance, the Destruction of Troy, John Clerk of Whalley negotiates between his roles as translator, historian and alliterative poet to introduce his account of the fall of Troy for medieval English readers. Professing to tell the true story of Britain’s ancient ancestors, he invokes the fiction of translatio imperii, in which the power of empire passes from Troy to Rome to Britain. According to Clerk, his translation of Guido delle Colonne’s Historia destructionis Troiae provides vernacular readers access to historical truth that had not previously been available to them. Clerk’s ...

Transgressive Sanctity: The Abrek In Chechen Culture, Rebecca Gould Jan 2007

Transgressive Sanctity: The Abrek In Chechen Culture, Rebecca Gould

Rebecca Gould

The ancient tradition of the abrek (bandit) was developed into a political institution during the second half of the nineteenth and early twentieth century by Chechen and other Muslim peoples of the Caucasus as a strategy for dealing with the overwhelming military force of Russia's imperial army. During the Soviet period, the abrek became a locus for oppositional politics and arguably influenced the representations of violence and anti-colonial resistance during the recent Chechen Wars. This article is one of the first works of English-language scholarship to historicize this institution. It also marks the beginning of a book project entitled ...

The St. Eustace Legend As Palimpsest In Hoban’S Riddley Walker, Martin L. Warren Jan 2007

The St. Eustace Legend As Palimpsest In Hoban’S Riddley Walker, Martin L. Warren

English Faculty Publications

The St. Eustace Legend as Palimpsest in Hoban's Riddley Walker. In Riddley Walker (1980), Russell Hoban uses the medieval legend of St. Eustace as the basis for his fictional society. Used to project a folklore, a system of belief, for a future world, the legend (and its additions by Hoban) acts as a palimpsest, a text of many layers. It explains the origins and present circumstances of Riddley Walker's society, acts as a chemical formula providing the ironic renewal of technological capabilities, and illuminates the narrator's personal story. The legend of St. Eustace was one of the ...

Re-Inventing Alexander: From Christian Warrior To Pagan Saint, Martha Mary Daas Jan 2007

Re-Inventing Alexander: From Christian Warrior To Pagan Saint, Martha Mary Daas

World Languages and Cultures Faculty Publications

In this essay I examine the appropriation of the Alexander legend by the Spanish author of the Libro de Alexandre to determine to what degree the poet's creation of a new mythic hero successfully fulfills the ideal of the Christian medieval warrior. By examining the poet's attempt at Christianizing the great warrior, I prove that Alexander retains his standing as a mythic figure: one who cannot be contained within a single ideological interpretation.
