Описание: This is the third in a series of Cambodian readers prepared by Franklin Huffman and Im Proum, following their Cambodian System of Writing and Beginning Reader and Intermediate Cambodian Reader. The reader contains thirty-two selections from some of the most important and best-known works of Cambodian literature in a variety of genres - historical prose, folktales, epic poetry, didactic verse, religious literature, the modern novel, poems and songs, and so forth. The introduction is a general survey in English of Cambodian literature, and each section has an introduction in Cambodian. For pedagogical reasons, the selections are presented roughly in reverse chronological order, from modern prose to the very esoteric and somewhat archaic verse of the Ream-Kie (the Cambodian version of the Ramayana). The reader concludes with a bibliography of some sixty items on Cambodian literature.
The glossary combines the 4,000 or so items introduced in this reader with the more than 6,000 introduced in the previous two readers, making it the largest Cambodian-English glossary compiled to date. The definitions are more general and complete than one usually finds in a simple reader glossary, in which definitions are normally context-specific. Because the glossary is so useful in itself, it is being made available separately as well as bound with the reader.

Описание: This book is a sequel to the author's Cambodian System of Writing and Beginning Reader, published by the Yale University Press in 1970. It is intended to develop the student's ability to the point of reading unedited Cambodian texts with the aid of a dictionary. Part One consists of thirty-seven reading selections in Cambodian, graded in length and difficulty, from publications by Cambodia's leading writers and scholars. It includes articles on Cambodian history, culture, and geography; Cambodian folktales; newspaper articles and editorials; and modern Cambodian fiction. Each selection is followed by a list of the vocabulary items not previously introduced, along with their definitions. Part Two consists of a final alphabetical Cambodian-English glossary containing not only the 4000 vocabulary items introduced in this volume, but also the 2000 vocabulary items in the preceding Cambodian System of Writing and Beginning Reader. This comprehensive glossary, besides rendering the book useful independently of the preceding volume, is particularly important in view of the present lack of a satisfactory Cambodian-English dictionary for students to use.

Описание: The Renaissance in Europe: An Anthology The Renaissance, both as a concept and a period, continues to generate lively controversy not only among
academics but also among the general public. Ever since the publication, in 1860, of Jacob Burckhardt's classic study of the Renaissance in Italy, scholars have disputed the origins of
the movement and its subsequent influence on European culture and thought. This sequence of three course texts and two anthologies, published in association with the Open
University, explores the Renaissance from the interdisciplinary perspective of history, literature, drama, religion, the history of art, philosophy, music and political thought.
provides students and general readers with an unprecedentedly thorough analysis of this absorbing stage in the development of Western civilization. In this vigorous and provocative
collection the concept of the Renaissance is interrogated through the work of scholars who have supported or queried Burckhardt's ideas or developed alternative interpretations. The
questions posed concentrate on the themes of the source and dispersal of the Renaissance.
Is there a unified concept of the Renaissance, and is it a cultural phenomenon
or an historical period? How distinctive were the philosophical and artistic developments of the Renaissance, and what factors determined the reception of Renaissance culture in
particular areas and disciplines? To what extent did the Renaissance mediate tradition or notions of authority and to what extent did it transform or challenge them? The Re
der addresses the themes of humanism, structures of authority, and levels of culture among different social orders and between men and women. And it examines what Burckhardt's
'discovery of the individual' really meant for the construction of self in the late medieval and early modern context.

Описание: "The dear old Cape! I love it! I love its hills of sand," From "The Surf Along the Shore", Cape Cod Ballads (1902). From 1902 to a year before his death in 1943, Joseph Crosby Lincoln wrote over forty novels, and many more poems and short stories. Every novel he wrote was a success and many were translated into other languages and adapted for screenplays or stage productions. These twenty-two poems, eight short stories, and a novel touch the heart of Lincolns works and show "essentials" of his writing. Even though celebrated author Joseph C. Lincoln traveled far from his native Cape Cod, Massachusetts, it remained close to his heart and foremost in his novels, short stories, and poems. Though many authors wrote works of literature about Cape Cod, none were more successful or better known than his. His writing was so popular, so vivid, and so accurate in capturing the imagery and spirit of the cape, that he is often described more as a historian than a writer of fiction. In Lincolns works, the Cape Cod of the past, with picturesque villages and rugged residents, comes vividly alive. Travel to a time when life was simpler, the people were down to earth, and the comforts of "The Old Home House" were just around the corner.

Описание: One of the most colourful and controversial figures in American intelligence, Herbert O. Yardley (1889-1958) gave America its best form of information, but his
fame rests more on his indiscretions than on his achievements. In this highly readable biography, a premier historian of military intelligence tells Yardley's story and evaluates his impact
on the American intelligence community.
Yardley established the nation's first codebreaking agency in 1917, and his solutions helped the United States win a major diplomatic
victory at the 1921 disarmament conference. But when his unit was closed in 1929 because "gentlemen do not read each other's mail", Yardley wrote a best-selling memoir that
introduced - and disclosed - codemaking and codebreaking to the public. David Kahn describes the vicissitudes of Yardley's career, including his work in China and Canada, offers a
capsule history of American intelligence up to World War I, and gives a short course in classical codes and ciphers.
He debunks the accusations that the publication of
Yardley's book caused Japan to change its codes and ciphers and that Yardley traitorously sold his solutions to Japan.

Описание: Terry Teachout, one of our most acute cultural commentators, here turns his sharp eye to every corner of the arts world - music, dance, literature, theatre, film,
TV, and the visual arts. This collection gathers the best of Teachout's writings from the past fifteen years. In each essay he offers lucid and balanced judgments that invariably
illuminate, sometimes infuriate, and always spark a response - the mark of a critic whose thoughts, however controversial, cannot be ignored.
In a thoughtful introduction to
the book, Teachout considers how American culture of the twenty-first century differs from that of the last century and how the information age has altered popular culture. His selected
essays chronicle America's cultural journey over the past decade and a half, and they show us what has been lost - and gained - along the way. With highly informed opinions, an
inimitable wit and style, and a genuine devotion to all things cultural, Teachout offers his readers much to delight in and much to ponder.
Автор: Scholes Название: The Crafty Reader ISBN: 0300090153 ISBN-13(EAN): 9780300090154 Издательство: Yale University Press Цена: 2177 р. Наличие на складе: Невозможна поставка.
Описание: This latest book from the well-known literary critic Robert Scholes presents his thoughtful exploration of the craft of reading. He deals with reading not as an art
or performance given by a virtuoso reader, but as a craft that can be studied, taught, and learned. Those who master the craft of reading, Scholes contends, will justifiably take
responsibility for the readings they produce and the texts they choose to read.
Scholes begins with a critique of the New Critical way of reading ("bad for poets and poetry and
really terrible for students and teachers of poetry"), using examples of poems by various writers, in particular Edna St. Vincent Millay. He concludes with a consideration of the strengths
and weaknesses of the fundamentalist way of reading texts regarded as sacred.
To explain and clarify the approach of the crafty reader, the author analyses a wide-ranging
selection of texts by figures at the margins of the literary and cultural canon, including Norman Rockwell, Anais Nin, Dashiell Hammett, and J. K. Rowling.
discussion Scholes emphasises how concepts of genre affect the reading process and how they may work to exclude certain texts from the cultural canon and curriculum.
