Smith contends that the 'two stools' stand for 2 commonly designated attitudes in the direction of scatology. the 1st is a carnivalesque, merry, even hearty disposition, typified via the writings of Chaucer and Shakespeare. the second one is self-disgust, an angle characterized through withering misanthropy and hypochondria. He locates this shift in sensibility within the challenge of the English Civil conflict and the aftermath of the recovery. Smith demonstrates how the mix of low and high cultures manifests the means to run canonical and carnivalesque jointly in order that sanctioned and civilised artefacts and scatological humour often co-exist within the works less than dialogue, proof of an previous culture's flair (now misplaced) to occupy a place among stools.
Of curiosity to cultural and literary historians, this ground-breaking learn testifies to the arriving of scatology as an instructional topic, while recognising that it is still if now not outdoors, then not less than on the margins of traditional scholarship.

Der Sammelband erschließt das Feld literarischer Deutschlandreisen, die nach 1989 in großer Zahl erschienen sind. Die Texte positionieren sich auf unterschiedliche Weise in den gegenwärtigen Diskursen über state und Heimat, über Provinz und Stadt. In verschiedenen Medien und literarischen Formen, in Reisebericht und Reiseroman, wird über das eigene Land nachgedacht. Dabei wird das Reisemotiv unterschiedlich perspektiviert und instrumentalisiert. Oft steht es mit nationaler, aber auch mit persönlicher Identitätssuche in Verbindung; auch die Frage nach den Möglichkeiten authentischen Erlebens und Reisens in der globalisierten Gegenwart bildet ein zentrales Thema. Die Beiträge über Autoren wie Büscher, Herrndorf oder Kracht systematisieren und kontextualisieren diese Phänomene. Der Band leistet damit einen innovativen Beitrag zur Reiseliteraturforschung wie auch zu den Debatten über Identitätskonstruktionen in der deutschsprachigen Gegenwartsliteratur.

Erasmus yearned to make the Bible a good software of reform in society, church, and daily life. To this finish, he composed the Paraphrases, within which the phrases of Holy Scripture give you the center of a textual content greatly accelerated to embody the reforming 'philosophy of Christ.' Matthew used to be Erasmus's first paraphrased Gospel and used to be therefore the good theologian's first chance to set out a whole portrait of the lifetime of Jesus.
In this Paraphrase, the fantastic complexity of Jesus's lifestyles reveals coherence within the notion of Him as a instructor. The baptism, the dove, and the divine voice testifying sonship are referred to as the 'inaugurating ceremonies' that authenticate Jesus because the divine instructor of heavenly philosophy. His scholars are the disciples, who're to be lecturers themselves, beginning an never-ending line of Christian lecturers. The Jesus of this Paraphrase knows pedagogy: He adapts His instructing to the constructing talents of His students, quizzes them, and lightly rebukes them. His activities in addition to His phrases have one fundamental aim: to coach the disciples.
As a Preface to the Paraphrase, Erasmus wrote a 'Letter to the Pious Reader,' which grew to become considered one of his such a lot provocative and critical essays. just like the extra released Paraclesis, this 'Letter' vigorously advocates the interpretation of scripture into the vernacular languages, and proposes a 'confirmation' rite to motivate adolescents to imagine accountability for the vows taken for them at baptism by means of their sponsors.
This quantity illuminates the early contemplating Erasmus and is a great addition to the accumulated Works series.
