              The bibliography records doctoral and selected masters' theses (over 3,300 in all) from British and Irish universities in the field of Russian, Soviet and East European studies. This is broadly interpreted to include all disciplines in the humanities and social sciences as they r...elate to the area of Russia, the former USSR and Eastern Europe. Taken as a whole, the work probably forms the fullest and longest record of British and Irish postgraduate research in any sector of area studies. Besides its primary function as a bibliographic tool, it makes it possible to trace the effects of academic developments, institutional policies, and the changes in direction in this highly diversified field of study over the last hundred years. Entries are arranged by subject and area, supported by full author and subject indexes to aid searching. Dr Gregory Walker is a former Head of Slavonic and East European Collections at the Bodleian Library, University of Oxford. The late John S.G. Simmons, OBE, was Senior Research Fellow and Librarian, All Souls College, Oxford.

              A Semiotic Analysis of the Short Stories of Leonid Andreyev, 1900-09 (Paperback)

              By Hutchings, Stephen C.

              This book applies the techniques of semiotic analysis to a selection of short stories by Leonid Andreev in an attempt to offer one answer to the problems of categorizing Andreev's unique art and placing it within a literary-evolutionary perspective. Drawing on a range of literary... theory from early Russian Formalism onwards, the study proceeds from one level to another according to a principle of 'degree of abstraction', so that each level constitutes firstly an independent account of Andreev's texts in itself, and secondly one stage in an overall analysis.

              It is usually assumed that the only British Romantic writer who engaged meaningfully with German philosophy was S. T. Coleridge. This edition disproves that assumption. The book collects thirteen essays and one set of lecture notes written by Henry Crabb Robinson during his perio...d in Germany (1800-1805).Robinson, though generally considered no more than a reporter on the activities of more eminent friends, in fact wrote a series of 'Letters on the Philosophy of Kant', distinguished for their clarity, accuracy, and liveliness. Furthermore, his lecture notes on Schelling and German aesthetics provide a valuable guide to the key German texts.

              Casimir Britannicus - English Translations, Paraphrases, and Emulations of the Poetry of Maciej Kazimierz Sarbiewski
                

              Casimir Britannicus - English Translations, Paraphrases, and Emulations of the Poetry of Maciej Kazimierz Sarbiewski (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Maciej Kazimierz Sarbiewski (1595-1640) was known in his lifetime as the Christian Horace. He was one of the most famous Neo-Latin poets of the Baroque, widely read, commented and translated throughout Europe. He was nominated Poet Laureate by Pope Urban VIII. Sarbiewski was also... famous for his studies in rhetoric and critical works such as De perfecta poesi sive Vergilius et Homerus.His Latin poetry was read, translated and imitated also in England, especially from 1640 until the first half of the 19th century. The first edition of Sarbiewski's English translations, by George Hills, was published in 1646. From that time onwards, Sarbiewski was translated by a variety of poets ranging from Hills to such famous authors as Vaughan, Burns and Coleridge. His poetry was universally read in grammar schools and used as a medium of improving the knowledge of Latin during a period exceeding two centuries. Thanks to Sarbiewski, English poets started to imitate Horace, which was an important factor in overcoming the Pindaric tradition. Sarbiewski's oeuvre was also attractive owing to its immersion in various cultural traditions such as Stoicism, Ignatian spirituality, Platonism, and Hermeticism.This revised edition includes all known English translations of Sarbiewski's poems. The texts are accompanied by an introduction presenting the biography and works of Sarbiewski, as well as a short critical analysis of the translations included in the volume.

              Dante Alighieri: Four Political Letters
                

              Dante Alighieri: Four Political Letters (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Dante's political thought has long constituted a major area of interest for Dante studies. Yet there has been a tendency for the poet's views on matters of politics to be seen by critics as a self-contained, discrete area for study. This edition of four political letters examines... the extent to which they can be said to contain the seeds of the political poetry of the Commedia, and to look again at the ways in which the author transforms the Latin political rhetoric of the letters into the Italian poetic language of his vernacular masterpiece. Table of Contents: 1. Introduction: 'Rome once had two suns' 2. The Letter to the Princes and Peoples of Italy (Epistola V) 3. The Letter to the Florentines (Epistola VI) 4. The Letter to the Emperor Henry VII (Epistola VII) 5. The Letter to the Italian Dr Claire Honess is a Senior Lecturer in the Italian Department at the University of Leeds.

              Evariste-Desire De Parny, 'Le Paradis Perdu'
                

              Evariste-Desire De Parny, 'Le Paradis Perdu' (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Evariste-Dsir de Parny, though largely forgotten now, was well known in the nineteenth century for his lyric poems, especially the Posies Erotiques (1778-81), and the prose-poems in Chansons Madcasses (1787). He also wrote much humorous verse, including the anti-religious La Guer...re des Dieux (1799) and Le Paradis perdu (1805). The latter is a parody of Milton's Paradise Lost in four relatively short cantos. It gives a central place to the War in Heaven, casting Satan as a revolutionary. It is highly entertaining in itself, and also an important example of parody as critical response to an original text.
