Book Synopsis The Sanctification of Don Quixote by : Eric Ziolkowski
Download or read book The Sanctification of Don Quixote written by Eric Ziolkowski and published by Penn State Press. This book was released on 2008-01-18 with total page 294 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ziolkowski explores the religious implications of the figure of Don Quixote in Western literature from Cervantes to the present.While scholars and critics in the past have often called attention to the secularizing tendency of modern literature, to the numerous fictional adaptations of the Christ figure on the one hand, and the innumerable literary descendants of Don Quixote on the other, this study is the first to examine a lineage of characters in whom the images of the alleged savior and the mad knight are combined.After considering Don Quixote as the first modern novel, and taking into account its relationship to religion, society, and censorship in seventeenth-century Spain, Ziolkowski traces the history and fate of Don Quixote, the character, through a series of religious transformations over the centuries, focusing on three novels that adapt the Quixote figure: Henry Fielding's Joseph Andrews, Fyodor Dostoevsky's The Idiot, and Graham Greene's Monsignor Quixote. Ziolkowski argues that, given the increased secularization and decline of religious consciousness over the last several centuries, any pursuit of religious values or ideas becomes questionable and this appears &"quixotic&" insofar as it stands in contradiction to the sociohistorical context. He concludes that religious existence, for the few who pursue it in suffering, which means that the religious person feels temporally displaced for adhering to a seemingly obsolete faith and lifestyle.

Download or read book Fighting Evil written by Ḥayim Gordon and published by Greenwood Publishing Group. This book was released on 1997 with total page 168 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book argues that Greene's writings have much to teach us about fighting evil here and now, and about endeavoring to live a worthy life. Greene related stories of evil persons who destroyed the freedom of others and of a few simple people who fought them. Through these stories he showed us three basic truths: first, evil exists; second, it is possible to fight it; and third, one may attain wisdom and sometimes a very limited glory by undertaking such a struggle.
Book Synopsis The Cervanrean Heritage by : J. A. Garrido Ardila
Download or read book The Cervanrean Heritage written by J. A. Garrido Ardila and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-12-02 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Many critics regard Cervantes's Don Quixote as the most influential literary book on British literature. Indeed the impact on British authors was immense, as can be seen from 17th-century plays by Fletcher, Massinger and Beaumont, through the great 18th-century novels of Fielding, Smollett, Sterne, and Lennox, and on into more modern and contemporary novelists. 20th-century critics, fascinated by Cervantes, were moved to write what we now see as the classical works of Cervantes scholarship. Through their previous publications, the eminent contributors to this volume have helped to determine the reception of Cervantes in Britain. Together they now offer a comprehensive and innovative picture of this topic, discussing the English translations of Cervantes's works, the literary genres which developed under his shadow, and the best-known authors who consciously emulated him. Cervantes's influence upon British literature emerges as decidedly the deepest of any writer outside of English and, very possibly, of any writer since the Renaissance."
Download or read book The Collar written by Sue Sorensen and published by ISD LLC. This book was released on 2014-12-25 with total page 292 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Combining thematic analysis and stimulating close readings, 'The Collar' is a wide-ranging study of the many ways - heroic or comic, shrewd or dastardly - in which Christian clergy have been represented in literature, from George Herbert and Laurence Sterne, via Anthony Trollope, G.K. Chesterton, T.S. Eliot, and Graham Greene, to Susan Howatch and Robertson Davies, and in film and television, such as 'Pale Rider', 'The Thorn Birds', 'The Vicar of Dibley', and 'Father Ted'. Since all Christians are expected to be involved in ministry of some type, the assumptions of secular culture about ministers affect more than just clergy. Ranging across several nations (particularly Britain, the U.S., and Canada), denominations, and centuries, 'The Collar' encouragescreative and faithful responses to the challenges of Christian leadership and develops awareness of the times when leadership expectations become too extreme. Using the framework of different media to make inquiries about pastoral passion, frustration, and fallibility, Sue Sorensen's well-informed, sprightly, and perceptive book will be helpful to anyone who enjoys evocative literature and film as well as to clergy and those interested in practical theology.

Book Synopsis Eucharist and Ecumenism by : Owen F. Cummings
Download or read book Eucharist and Ecumenism written by Owen F. Cummings and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2013-07-08 with total page 164 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Most Christians worship on a regular basis on the Lord's Day. They have done so from the beginning, and their worship has centered on the Eucharist, following Jesus's words, "Do this in remembrance of me." Over the two millennia of the Christian tradition there have been shifts of emphasis and understanding about the Eucharist. This book attempts to point out, by providing accessible accounts of both liturgies and liturgists across the centuries and traditions, just how much different Christians have in common and how they can benefit from attending to one another's worship. The author's ultimate hope is that in its small way, the book will contribute to Christians worshiping together.

Book Synopsis Between Form and Faith by : Martyn Sampson
Download or read book Between Form and Faith written by Martyn Sampson and published by Fordham University Press. This book was released on 2021-08-03 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What is a “Catholic” novel? This book analyzes the fiction of Graham Greene in a radically new manner, considering in depth its form and content, which rest on the oppositions between secularism and religion. Sampson challenges these distinctions, arguing that Greene has a dramatic contribution to add to their methodological premises. Chapters on Greene’s four “Catholic” novels and two of his “post-Catholic” novels are complemented by fresh insight into the critical importance of his nonfiction. The study paints an image of an inviting yet beguilingly complex literary figure.
Book Synopsis Graham Greene by : Michael G. Brennan
Download or read book Graham Greene written by Michael G. Brennan and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2010-03-18 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this significant rereading of Graham Greene's writing career, Michael Brennan explores the impact of major issues of Catholic faith and doubt on his work, particularly in relation to his portrayal of secular love and physical desire, and examines the religious and secular issues and plots involving trust, betrayal, love and despair. Although Greene's female characters have often been underestimated, Brennan argues that while sometimes abstract, symbolic and two-dimensional, these figures often prove central to an understanding of the moral, personal and spiritual dilemmas of his male characters. Finally, he reveals how Greene was one of the most generically ambitious writers of the twentieth century, experimenting with established forms but also believing that the career of a successful novelist should incorporate a great diversity of other categories of writing. Offering a new and original perspective on the reading of Greene's literary works and their importance to English twentieth-century fiction, this will be of interest to anyone studying Greene.

Book Synopsis Fathers and Mothers in Literature by : Henk Hillenaar
Download or read book Fathers and Mothers in Literature written by Henk Hillenaar and published by Rodopi. This book was released on 1994 with total page 276 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Many people as a child dream of having other parents: a gentler mother, a kinder or stronger father, a more illustrious family? According to our secret dreams, were not most of us born sons or daughters of a king, a president, a champion? Freud termed this the Family Romance. We all carry these secret scenarios in ourselves. Usually they are long forgotten but nevertheless remain alive in the stories we tell ourselves and relate to others. Therefore the Family Romance is one of the keys to the understanding of literature. The French literary critic Marthe Robert developed a fundamental theory of Freud. In 1972 she presented in her publication Origins of the Novel a new method to analyse the novel and to understand its history. Her study offers a proof of the relevance of Freud's views and it invites us to expand on its ideas and suggestions. It is in this perspective that the authors of this volume write about the historical and mythical figures Mary, Medea, Electra, Kaspar Hauser and Sir Gawain. Other articles are devoted to the Family Romance in the works of the following authors: Barthes, Beckett, Camus, Drieu la Rochelle, Faulkner, Flaubert, Goethe, Claire Goll, Jutta Heinrich, Gombrowicz, Greene, Kafka, LÉvy, Modiano, Petronius, Sartre, Vigny.
Book Synopsis Graham Greene’s Conradian Masterplot by : Robert Pendleton
Download or read book Graham Greene’s Conradian Masterplot written by Robert Pendleton and published by Springer. This book was released on 1996-02-12 with total page 181 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From The Man Within (1929) to The Captain and the Enemy (1988), Graham Greene engaged in a lifelong dialogue with Joseph Conrad's political, psychological and melodramatic fictions. Repressing Conrad's political anxieties, his early work displaces the protagonist's existential dilemma into the form of the thriller or - alternatively -the 'Catholic' novel. After The Quiet American (1955), however, Greene's novels return to politics, introducing comic variations which transform Conrad's 'masterplot' into a mixed genre uniquely his own, a process charted in this book, the first full-length study of the subject.
Book Synopsis Shifting Viewpoints by : Meg H. Brown
Download or read book Shifting Viewpoints written by Meg H. Brown and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2014-07-18 with total page 270 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This study shows that Cervantes’s works actively influenced the literature of a number of twentieth- and early twenty-first-century writers in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. This time period was marked by numerous significant events, including World War I, the first attempts at democracy, the rise of the Nazis, World War II, the division of Germany, and the eventual reunification of Germany. Representations of characters created by Cervantes reflect the shifting viewpoints of monarchism, imperialism, communism, fascism, socialism, and capitalism. A number of German-speaking authors of this time creatively modify Don Quixote, vacillating between regarding Don Quixote as a fool or a hero. The emphasis here is on the question of how an author uses Cervantes’s Don Quixote and The Conversation of the Dogs to come to terms with his or her own preoccupations in a given socio-political context. This book explores literary works by German-speaking authors that engage in an intertextual play with a text written by Cervantes.
