The Cambridge History Of Literary Criticism Vol 1 UPD
DOWNLOAD ::: https://byltly.com/2sXL3I
The Cambridge History of Literary Criticism provides a comprehensive historical account of Western literary criticism from classical antiquity to the present day. The history will comprise nine volumes and deal with literary theory and critical practice. It is intended as an authoritative work of reference and exposition, much more than a mere chronicle of facts. While remaining broadly non-partisan, it addresses, where appropriate, controversial issues of current critical debate without evasion or pretence of neutrality. Nevertheless, it will maintain throughout a scrupulous concern for factual accuracy and a due representation of differing points of view.

I work across a number of fields and periods, including: medieval literature (English, Latin, French); literary theory from ancient to modern; the history of rhetoric; the reception of classical traditions in medieval and early modern Europe; intellectuals, learning, and literacy in medieval Europe; history of the emotions. Usually my teaching combines my interests in antiquity and the Middle Ages--or how the Middle Ages understood antiquity. I recently published Emotion and the History of Rhetoric in the Middle Ages (2021) and The Oxford History of Classical Reception in English Literature vol. 1, 800-1558 (2016). Other recent work includes essays on commentary and gloss, and on Aristotle's Rhetoric in medieval England. I am also interested in representations of the intellectual in pre-modern Europe, from late antique rhetorical culture to late medieval university cultures and heretical communities. Other work includes Medieval Grammar and Rhetoric: Language Arts and Literary Theory AD 300-1475, co-authored with Ineke Sluiter;and The Cambridge Companion to Allegory, co-edited with Peter Struck. I was a founding editor of the annual New Medieval Literatures ). I am General Editor, with Peter Mack (Warwick), of the Cambridge History of Rhetoric, a series in five volumes to be published in 2023. I am also co-editor, with Jill Ross, of Toronto Studies in Medieval and Early Modern Rhetoric, a new book series from Pontifical Institute of Mediaeval Studies. In fall, 2010, I was a fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Jerusalem, working in the research group Encountering Scripture, on medieval Christian, Jewish, and Islamic approaches to scriptural exegesis. In Spring 2013 I was a Fellow at Penn's Center for Advanced Judaic Studies for a seminar year on innovations in the thirteenth century. In Spring 2020 I was a Visiting Fellow at the Warburg Institute in London.

The relationship between intellectual history and literary history can be understood as reciprocal: as this chapter will demonstrate, practitioners of the history of ideas use literary texts alongside religious, scientific and philosophical writings to map the conceptual currents within an historical period, while literary critics draw on intellectual history when reconstructing the background of literary texts. However, in seeking to position texts within a history of ideas, literary critics must also confront theoretical and methodological questions about the relationship between text and context that lie at the heart of intellectual and literary history.1 2b1af7f3a8
