Confucius: Bloomsbury Library of Educational Thought

By Charleneten

Bloomsbury Publishing India, 2019. First edition. Softcover. New. 16 x 24 cm. Charlene Tan`s text offers a coherent account of Confucius` educational thought and its implications for the modern world. Arguing that Confucius is more than an ancient master who emphasised tradition, rote-learning and teacher-centredness, Tan portrays Confucius as a progressive educator who challenged the social norms of his time and transformed the nature of teaching and learning in China and beyond. Through a textual study of the Analects, this text provides a critical exposition of Confucius` work, particularly with respect to his interpretations of human beings` mission in life, potentials, relationships with one another, and educational process. Further highlighting the contemporary relevance of Confucius` work, the author offers a Confucian framework for 21st century education – one that harmonises modern knowledge and skills with universal values on shared humanity and loving others.

Web As Corpus: Theory and Practice

By Maristella Gatto

Bloomsbury Publishing India, 2019. First edition. Softcover. New. 16 x 24 cm. Is the internet a suitable linguistic corpus? How can we use it in corpus techniques? What are the special properties that we need to be aware of? This book answers those questions. The Web is an exponentially increasing source of language and corpus linguistics data. From gigantic static information resources to user-generated Web 2.0 content, the breadth and depth of information available is breathtaking – and bewildering. This book explores the theory and practice of the “web as corpus”. It looks at the most common tools and methods used and features a plethora of examples based on the author`s own teaching experience. This book also bridges the gap between studies in computational linguistics, which emphasize technical aspects, and studies in corpus linguistics, which focus on the implications for language theory and use. Table of contents: Introduction 1. Corpus, Concordance, collocation: Basic notions 2. From Body to Web: An Introduction to the Web as Corpus 3. Challenging Anarchy: Web Search from a Corpus Perspective 4. Beyond Ordinary Search Engines: Concordancing the Web 5.

Moral Principles

By Maike Albertzart

Bloomsbury Publishing India, 2019. First edition. Softcover. New. 14 x 22 cm. The history of moral philosophy has been dominated by attempts to find and defend the correct moral principle or set of principles. However, over the last two decades the assumption that morality can and should be understood in terms of principles has come under attack from several quarters. The most radical attack has come from so-called moral particularists according to whom principles are at best useless and at worst a hindrance to successful moral reasoning and action. Why should – and how can – morality be based on principles? These are the leading questions of this book. Moral Principles offers a historically informed, in-depth examination of the current particularist/generalist debate and presents a novel account of the place of principles in our moral thought and action. Table of contents: Acknowledgements Introduction 1. Moral Particularism 1.1 From scepticism about moral principles to particularism 1.2 The current particularism/generalism debate 1.3 The particularist challenge 2. Three Recent Attempts to Defend Moral Principles 2.1 Dancy`s generalist critics 2.2 Moral principles and practical reasoning 3. The Nature and Roles of Moral Principles 3.1 Indeterminacy 3.2 Defeasibility 3.3 Moral principles and the activity of moral judgement 3.4 Moral principles and the capacity of moral judgement Conclusion Bibliography Index.

Raising Milton`s Ghost: John Milton and the Sublime of Terror in the Early Romantic Period

By Joseph Crawford

Bloomsbury Publishing India, 2019. First edition. Softcover. New. 16 x 24 cm. Why was Milton so important to the Romantics? How did `Milton the Regicide`, a man often regarded in his lifetime as a dangerous traitor and heretic, become `the Sublime Milton`? The late eighteenth century saw a sudden and to date almost undocumented craze for all things Miltonic, the symptoms of which included the violation of his grave and the sale of his hair and bones as relics, the republication of all his works including his political tracts in unprecedented numbers, the appearance of the poet in the works, letters, dreams and visions of all the major British Romantic poets and even frequent reports of hauntings by his ghost. Drawing on the traditions of cultural, intellectual and bibliographic history as well as recent trends in literary scholarship on the romantic period, Joseph Crawford explores the dramatic shift in Milton`s cultural status after 1790. He builds on a now significant literature on Milton`s legacy to the Romantic poets, uncovering the cultural historical background against which the Romantics and their contemporaries encountered and interacted with Milton`s reputation and works. Table of contents: The Haunting; Introduction; Milton`s Legacy; Milton`s Ghost; Milton and the Sublime of Terror; Milton`s Heirs; `Urania I shall need thy Guidance`: The Case of William Wordsworth; `I Beheld Milton With Astonishment`: The Case of William Blake; Epilogue: Milton and the Literature of Power Printed Pages: 270.

Theatre in the Expanded Field: Seven Approaches to Performance

By Alan Read

Bloomsbury Publishing India, 2019. First edition. Softcover. New. 16 x 24 cm. Theatre in the Expanded Field is a fiercely original, bold and daring exploration of the fields of theatre and performance studies and the received narratives and histories that underpin them. Rich with interdisciplinary reference, international, eclectic and broad-ranging in its examples, it offers readers a compelling and provocative reassessment of the disciplines, one that spans pre-history to the present day. Sixty years ago, in 1962, Richard Southern wrote a remarkable book called The Seven Ages of the Theatre. It was unusual in its time for taking a trans-disciplinary, new-historical and avowedly internationalist approach to its subject - nothing less than a totalizing view of its field. Theatre in the Expanded Field does not attempt to mimic Southern`s work but rather takes his spirit of adventure and ambition as its frame for the contemporary moment of performance and its diverse pasts. Identifying seven ways of exploring the performance field, from pre-history to postdramatic theatre the book presents studies of both contemporary and historical works not as a chronological succession, but in keeping with their coeval qualities, as movements or `generations` of connection and interaction, dissensus and interruption. It does this with the same purpose as Richard Southern`s original work: to provide for the planning of responsive performance spaces `now`. Illustrated throughout with line-drawings, Theatre in the Expanded Field is as richly rewarding as it is ambitious and expansive in it vision.

Natural Supernaturalism, (A Norton Critical Edition)

By M.H. Abrams

W.W. Norton & Company/Viva Books, 2010. 5th or later edition. Softcover. New. 12 x 20 cm. In this remarkable new book, M. H. Abrams definitively studies the Romantic Age (1789-1835)-the age in which Shelley claimed that ""the literature of England has arisen as it were from a new birth."" Abrams shows that the major poets of the age had in common important themes, modes of expression, and ways of feeling and imagining; that the writings of these poets were an integral part of a comprehensive intellectual tendency which manifested itself in philosophy as well as poetry, in England and in Germany; and that this tendency was causally related to drastic political and social changes of the age. But Abrams offers more than a work of scholarship, for he ranges before and after, to place the age in Western culture. he reveals what is traditional and what is revolutionary in the period, providing insights into those same two forces in the ideas of today. He shows that central Romantic ideas and forms of imagination were secularized versions of traditional theological concepts, imagery, and design, and that modern literature participates in the same process. Our comprehension of this age and of our own time is deepened by a work astonishing in its learning, vision, and humane understanding. Printed Pages: 550. NA

Formalism, Experience, and the Making of American Literature in the Nineteenth Century

By Theo Davis

Cambridge University Press, 2010. First edition. Softcover. New. Theo Davis offers a fresh account of the emergence of a national literature in the United States. Taking American literature`s universalism as an organising force that must be explained rather than simply exposed, she contends that Emerson, Hawthorne, and Stowe`s often noted investigations of experience are actually based in a belief that experience is an abstract category governed by typicality, not the property of the individual subject. Additionally, these authors locate the form of the literary work in the domain of abstract experience, projected out of - not embodied in - the text. After tracing the emergence of these beliefs out of Scottish common sense philosophy and through early American literary criticism, Davis analyses how American authors` prose seeks to work an art of abstract experience. In so doing, she reconsiders the place of form in modern literary studies. Printed Pages: 212.

Studies in Women Writers English, Vol. 7

By Mohit K. Ray & Rama Kundu (Eds)

Atlantic Publishers & Distributors (P) Ltd, 2009. Hardcover. New. This volume, the seventh in the series—Studies in Women Writers in English—is a grateful acknowledgment of the contribution and public recognition of the emerging voice of women in the arena of literature during the last few centuries, and especially in the latter half of the twentieth century. The critique of work by women writers, introduced in the present volume, bears evidence to the growing critical attention towards authors writing outside the mainstream, in America, Canada, and especially in India, as well as Indian émigré writers who can be seen sharing similar awareness and feelings regarding the woman’s angst and aspirations. The articles in this volume cover a wide range of women writers including one from Britain, i.e. the canonized and perennially popular Charlotte Brontë, three from America, i.e. Flannery O’Connor, widely known as the writer of ‘Southern Gothic’, Sylvia Plath and Tess Gallagher while Margaret Atwood figures, as usual. In addition to this, a bunch of Indian avant-garde writers of our own times, ranging from literary doyens like Shashi Deshpande and Anita Desai, to young avant-gardes, namely Githa Hariharan, Radhika Jha, Arundhati Roy, Chitra Divakaruni, Bharati Mukherjee and Shobha De, to the promising new generation of prize¬winners like Jhumpa Lahiri, and Kiran Desai. Since most of the authors discussed in these articles are prescribed in the English syllabi in the universities of India, both the teachers and the students will find the book extremely useful, and the general readers who are interested in literature in English and/or women writers will also find them intellectually stimulating.

The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam: (Viva Modern Critical Interpretations)

By Edward Fitzgerald (Author), Harold Bloom (ed.)

Viva Books, 2007. First edition. Softcover. New. An Imaginative renditionof the thirteenth century poet, Omar Khayyam, much of the critical debate centers upon translation as an aesthetic genre which renews itself with the remote past. Written during a time of great personal loss for FitzGerald, The Rubaiyat is very much a part of the mid Victorian literary culture. By engaging such themes as memory and oblivion, and, and the availability of consolation in a mechanized world, FitzGerald Aligns himself with his friend Alfred, Lord Tennyson. VIVA MODERN CRITICAL INTERPRETATIONS presents the best current criticism on the most widely read and studied poems, novels and dramas of the Western world, from Oedipus Rex and the Iliad to such modern and contemporary works as William Faulkner’s The Sound and the Fury and Don Delillo’s White Noise. Contents: Introduction • The Fin de Siecle Cult of FitzGerald’s ""Rubaiyat"" of Omar Khayyam • The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam • Fugitive Articulation • The Discovery of the Rubaiyat • The Discovery of the Rubaiyat • The Apocalyptic Vision of La Vida es Sueno : Calderon and Edward FitzGerald • Young Eliot’s Rebellion • Larger Hopes and the new hedonism : Tennyson and FitzGerald • Bernard Quaritch and My Omar • Paradise Enow • The Tale of Inimitable Rubaiyat • Forgetting FitzGerald’s Rubaiyat Printed Pages: 252.

Great Expectations

By Charles Dickens

Canterbury Classics Books, 2012. Softcover. New. One of the most popular novelists ever, Charles Dickens wrote about what he saw in 19th century London: orphans, child labor, and the crime that was rampant in the city at the time. In the 1861 bestseller Great Expectations, he wove all of these themes into a tale of mystery and personal development. The story of a young orphan boy?poor and alone, but whisked away to London by a anonymous benefactor?is a fantastic tale, complete with plot twists and a love story that puts many modern novels to shame. To this day, Great Expectations remains one of Dickenss greatest achievements. Now available as part of the Canterbury Classics singles series, the novel is a must-have addition to the libraries of all classic literature lovers. Printed Pages: 456. NA
