Vivienne Jahnke Katherine Mansfield. Between New Zealand and Great Britain

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2013 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1.3, University of Leipzig, language: English, abstract: This thesis focuses on presenting reasons for either including or excluding Katherine Mansfield in the New Zealand canon of literature and argues her affiliation to the country.Situating Mansfield within either the British or the New Zealand canon of literature is difficult; several attempts have been made over the past decades. Often, the work on the subject has been inconclusive, Mansfield's writing was found to show attributes which would make it possible to include her with both the New Zealand and the European or British tradition of writing. Other times the evidence let to different evaluations, clearly situating her in the British canon only. These pages shall give an explanation for this ambiguity.

Featuring twenty one newly-commissioned essays, A Companion to the Global Renaissance: English Literature and Culture in the Era of Expansion demonstrates how today's globalization is the result of a complex and lengthy historical process that had its roots in England's mercantile and cross-cultural interactions of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. An innovative collection that interrogates the global paradigm of our period and offers a new history of globalization by exploring its influences on English culture and literature of the early modern period. Moves beyond traditional notions of Renaissance history mainly as a revival of antiquity and presents a new perspective on England's mercantile and cross-cultural interactions with the New and Old Worlds of the Americas, Africa, and the East, as well with Northern Europe. Illustrates how twentieth-century globalization was the result of a lengthy and complex historical process linked to the emergence of capitalism and colonialism Explores vital topics such as East-West relations and Islam; visual representations of cultural 'others'; gender and race struggles within the new economies and cultures; global drama on the cosmopolitan English stage, and many more

Anwar Elsharkawy Women.s discourse of power in Shakespeare.s Macbeth

Scientific Essay from the year 2013 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: M.A, , course: Discourse Analysis, language: English, abstract: Women in "Macbeth" (i.e., Lady Macbeth and the Witches) speak a strange language that is very similar to what women seek today. This language can be described as antilanguage: a language by which women can direct, control, and dominate men. This paper introduces a contradictory statement to the current views in discourse analysis, which indicate that women are powerless, trivial, dominated, and sexual objects (Andersen, 1988, Chaika, 1982; Lakoff, 1975) by showing women as powerful, serious, and dominating as men. In doing so, it focuses on the recent views of discourse, power, and women, taking Shakespeare's "Macbeth" as a field of application by analyzing Lady Macbeth's turns of talk.

R. H. Blyth Zen in English Literature and Oriental Classics

It was R.H Blyth's belief that "all that is good in European literature and culture is simply and solely that which is in accordance with the Spirit of Zen." He thereafter applied himself to the task of searching the writings of East and West in an attempt to discover that Spirit. Zen in English Literature and Oriental Classics embraces the classical literature of China and Japan and the whole extent of English literature, with numerous quotations not only from English but also from French, German, Italian, and Spanish writing. Don Quixote has a chapter all to himself, and the author considers him possibly the purest example in all of world literature of a man who lives by Zen. In English, the Zen attitude toward life is found most consistently in Shakespeare, Wordsworth, Dickens, and Stevenson. This book is essential reading for anyone interested in Zen, haiku, or indeed English literature.R.H. Blyth was born in London in 1898 and studied English literature at London University. He traveled extensively in the East before moving first to Korea and then Japan and teaching English at several universities. Blyth eventually became the English tutor to the Crown Prince of Japan. He also studied Zen Buddhism under Kayama Taigi Roshi. Blyth was interned during the war years, and it was during this time that he wrote his first book, Zen in English Literature. He went on to write numerous other books on Zen, haiku, senryu, and humor. Blyth was a man whose sensibility took ...

Sarah Steppke The Old South in American Literature

Examination Thesis from the year 2015 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 3,0, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald, language: English, abstract: This final paper deals with the Old South, meaning the Southern States of the USA. It is concerned with the myth that has established around the old days and deals with literature in which myth-making becomes apparent. Apart from the Northern States, the Old South has acquired a different society due to the Civil War. The consequences are discussed within this paper. Within this paper, the depiction of the Southern Myth in literature shall be aimed at. In this regard, it needs to be debated, whether or not the Myth of the Old South does qualify as such, while further exploring the circumstances, in which such a myth can flourish. It shall be shown, how nostalgia, resulting from the Lost Cause, fueled the makings of the Myth. In order to keep the topic focused on just the myth, it will be exemplified my thesis with chosen material instead of giving an overview of literature which would barely scratch the surface. The main focus is to be put on Margaret Mitchell's novel Gone with the Wind, since it combines every last element which triggers nostalgia for the Old South and can therefore be seen as the main ingredient in preserving the Southern Myth as well as adding new components to it." Gone with the Wind" is a major piece of American literature, still sold by the thousands every year. It employs t...

Katharina Kirchhoff The Representation Of Women In Utopian And Dystopian Literature

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,8, University of Leipzig, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this study is to analyse the representation of women in utopian and dystopian literature. The research question of this paper is: To what extent is the representation of women and their status in the fictional societies determined by gender relations in the context of the distribution of power? To explore this question the historical context in which s/he wrote the novel is also assumed to be important. The approach applied to this thesis is based on gender and literary studies. In order to analyse the representation of women, this thesis offers a coherent structure consisting of four important steps. Firstly, each novel will be introduced with a brief paragraph on the historical background. Secondly, the power relations of the society have to be observed. Thirdly, the resulting gender relations will be analysed. Finally, in the context of the prior three steps of this thesis, the representation of women will be observed. In addition, I will use traditional female stereotypes in literature as a criterion for the analysis of the representation of women. The novels chosen for this purpose are Herland, written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman in 1915, followed by the dystopia Brave New World, written by Aldous Huxley in 1932. The final novel will be the dystopia The Handmaid's Tale, written by Margar...

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 2,0, Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (FTSK Germersheim), language: English, abstract: 'Fantasy literature' is a term most people have come across at some point in their lives nowadays. [...] Since the recognition offantasy as a literary genre, "most have treated it as an international and mainly Anglo-Saxon form" (Manlove:1999, 1). Therefore, it appears only reasonable to take a closerlook at the sort of fantasy literature that originates from the English-speaking countries. [...] Some of the best known authors of fantasy literature are of English or Scottish origin. Both England and Scotland begot highly creative and sophisticated fantasists. And works of both English and Scottish fantasy have had a great impact on the entire genre. [...] Although they are neighbours and share a common language, English and Scottish fantasists have always had very different ways of expressing themselves. The aim of this dissertation is to point out the similarities as well as the differences of English and Scottish fantasy literature, in order to clarify what it is exactlythat characterises them. As there are a great many different pieces of literature which provide material for the analysis and characterisation of Scottish and English fantasy,statements on the two shall be underlined with examples.

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1, University of Innsbruck (Department of English), course: English Word Formation, 5 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Diachrone analyses of a language analyze the state of a language at different periods of time or its development throughout time. Today English is a language that is almost uninflected, but this has not always been the case. The Old English language had many inflectional distinctions, which got almost totally lost throughout time. In this research paper I will show the different states of the inflectional system in the Old, Middle, Early Modern and Modern English. Furthermore, there will be shown and clarified the dramatic loss of inflectional distinctions in the English language. The tables in this research paper are partly adapted from books, partly slightly modified and partly created on my own by summarizing information of texts or results of this research paper in a table.

Rusiru Chitrasena The (old) emperor.s new clothes. Recognizing the sociolinguistic prestige of Received Pronunciation in contemporary Sri Lankan society

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, , course: Bachelor of Arts (Honours) Special Degree in English Studies, language: English, abstract: The present thesis is an attempt to recognize the sociolinguistic prestige of Received Pronunciation (RP) in contemporary Sri Lankan society, using attitudes, perceptions, and practices of habitual English users in Sri Lanka. Since this study approaches RP from a number of dimensions that are vital in a sociolinguistic study of an accent, this plurality of dimension is reflected in its methodology. The research methods are (a) an attitudinal survey; (b) a series of semi-structured interviews; (c) Observation of participants' behaviour during interviews; and observation of RP used by Sri Lankans.RP's prestige has not changed radically even after 64 years of independence from colonial rule, despite the burgeoning discussion on the suitability of the home-grown standard of English at academic and policy levels. However, Sri Lankan English has surpassed RP as the descriptive standard ,that is, the standard sanctioned by actual use despite RP's continuous role as the prescriptive and the imagined standard, which is accorded more prestige.The residual sociolinguistic prestige of RP is initially examined as a matter of language ideologies surrounding the English language as well as language in general. Subsequently, the discussion focuses on the British-orientation of ...

Ihsan Durdu The problem of cultural transformation and individual integrity .n Edith Wharton.s novels

Thesis (M.A.) from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: G, Marmara University ( Faculty of Literature), language: English, abstract: ABSTRACTEdith Wharton's novels are mainly set between the 1870s and the 1920s. During the period the States experienced unequalled changes and transformed from an agrarian to an industrial nation. Urbanization, mechanisation, and new facilities promoted each other. The influx into cities ended the sovereignty of the established old families. This thesis titled as "The Problem of Cultural Transformation and Individual Integrity in Edith Wharton's novels" examines that transformation.The Age of Innocence and The Custom of the Country portray two different phases of the transformation and this thesis investigates the change and detect the inevitable disintegration of the old system in the face of the new one. After observing the socio-economic changes occured during the period, and searching the reflections of the transformation in the attitudes of social classes and moral perspectives of the protagonists of the two novels, the thesis arrives at the conclusion that the breakdown of the old system and old values were inevitable both because their day was over and because the ambitions of the parvenus were far more ber than theirs.

Rositsa Kronast English Colonial Language Policy and Postcolonial Literature

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Comparative Literature, grade: 2,0, LMU Munich (Department für Allgemeine und Vergleichende Literaturwissenschaft), language: English, abstract: 1. Introduction: The Impact of the English Colonial Language Policy on the Postcolonial IdentityMy paper aims at exploring the effects of English colonial language policy on the postcolonial identity and their representations in postcolonial literature. Before applying to the main works, on which I will focus, The Enigma of Arrival and Small Island, I would like briefly to introduce the reader to the objectives of English colonial language policy. English colonial language education not only responds to the demands of access to European knowledge, but also it is a way of effective governance over the colonized people. Under the mask of the moral imperial duty to enlighten uncultivated subjects, the established discourses of Anglicism and Orientalism aim at fashioning the tastes, opinions and morals of the natives after the British imperial style, making them deny their origins in an attempt to become more English than the Englishmen. The process of reshaping the colonials' identity is said to be for the sake of their own good, being in need to be cured of their ignorance.
