Back to the Present: Forward to the Past, Volume II

Irish Writing and History since 1798

Series:

Edited by Patricia A. Lynch, Joachim Fischer and Brian Coates

The island of Ireland, north and south, has produced a great diversity of writing in both English and Irish for hundreds of years, often using the memories embodied in its competing views of history as a fruitful source of literary inspiration. Placing Irish literature in an international context, these two volumes explore the connection between Irish history and literature, in particular the Rebellion of 1798, in a more comprehensive, diverse and multi-faceted way than has often been the case in the past. The fifty-three authors bring their national and personal viewpoints as well as their critical judgements to bear on Irish literature in these stimulating articles. The contributions also deal with topics such as Gothic literature, ideology, and identity, as well as gender issues, connections with the other arts, regional Irish literature, in particular that of the city of Limerick, translations, the works of Joyce, and comparisons with the literature of other nations. The contributors are all members of IASIL (International Association for the Study of Irish Literatures). Back to the Present: Forward to the Past. Irish Writing and History since 1798 will be of interest to both literary scholars and professional historians, but also to the general student of Irish writing and Irish culture.

God and Nature

Spinoza's Metaphysics. Papers Presented at the First Jerusalem Conference (Ethica I)

Series:

Edited by Yovel

This is the first in a seven-volume series, to be based on The Jerusalem Conferences. Each volume is devoted to a specific topic, the first five following the division of Spinoza's Ethics, the sixth dealing with Spinoza's social and political thought and the concluding one with the philosopher's life and origins. All papers are in English, yet present a wide-ranging picture of contemporary study of Spinoza's philosophy worldwide. Among the contributions to the present volume are Alan Donagan's "Substance, Essence and Attribute in Spinoza", Edwin Curley's "On Jonathan Bennett's Interpretation of Spinoza's Monism", followed by Bennett's "Reply", Alexandre Matheron's "Essence, Existence and Power in Spinoza" and Herman De Dijn's "Metaphysics as Ethics". Papers are also presented by Margaret D. Wilson, Emilia Giancotti, Yirmiyahu Yovel, Jean-Luc Marion, Pierre Macherey, Jacqueline Lagrée, Don Garrett, Yosef Ben-Shlomo and Sylvain Zac. All participants present major papers, the book thus being the outcome of a long-standing interest in Spinozistic thought by a group of first-rate scholars.
The book includes an index of subjects and proper names.

Opusculum fabularum

Die Fabelsammlung der Berliner Handschrift Theol. lat. fol. 142

Series:

Christina Meckelnborg and Bernd Schneider

This volume contains a medieval collection of Latin adaptations of Aesopian fables, the so-called Opusculum fabularum which consists of three books, each of them again containing about 50 fables. Its complete version has been handed down only in the Berlin manuscript Theol. lat. fol. 142. The critical edition of this text is the main part of the present volume. It also contains the critical edition of the text of those fables of the Opusculum fabularum that have been quoted by Conrad von Halberstadt in his Tripartitus moralium.
The present volume is the very first publication of the Opusculum fabularum and will prove most useful for latinists, medievalists and other literary scholars in their studies of the development of the Latin fable in the Middle Ages and in early modern times.
