Item Description: GRIN Verlag, Germany, 2008. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 1. Auflage.. Language: German . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 2,0, Universitat Hamburg, Veranstaltung: Poetic Genres and Styles: From the 17th to the 18th century, 16 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: L Allegro und Il Penseroso gehoren zu den fruhen Gedichten, die John Miltons wahrend seiner Jahre in Cambridge geschrieben hat, sie werden auf die beginnenden 1630er Jahre datiert. In der Literatur werden diese beiden gemeinhin als companion poems bezeichnet, was bezuglich des strukturellen Aufbaus und inhaltlichen Gemeinsamkeiten durchaus trefflich formuliert ist. Weniger Einigkeit (als uber diese offensichtlichen Parallelen) herrscht allerdings uber die (Gesamt-)Bedeutung des Werkes. Im Wesentlichen lassen sich die Stromungen der Interpretationsansatze in zwei Gruppen unterteilen: Zum einen steht die Darstellung von Gegensatzen im Mittelpunkt und zum anderen die Gesamtentwicklung der Geschehnisse, bis hin zu einer Auflosung zugunsten Il Penserosos. Besonders letzterer Ansatz wirft dabei einen wertenden Blick auf die beiden Lebensstile. Ich mochte in dieser Arbeit eine andere Blickweise verdeutlichen, die mir sehr unterreprasentiert scheint. Zentraler Punkt dabei ist, dass die in L Allegro und Il Penseroso beschriebenen Gemutszustande eine komplementare Beziehung darstellen, die sich erganzen und eine Einheit bilden. Zentrales Argument dabei ist zum einen, dass alle Dinge nur durch ihren Gegensatz existieren (gut und bose, Tag und Nacht, weltliche - und gottliche Freuden, etc.) und zum anderen, dass jedes der beiden Gedichte spezifische Elemente enthalt, die zeigen, dass sowohl Mirth als auch Melancholy nur gemeinsam ein lebenswertes, wenn nicht gar lebensnotwendiges System ergeben und somit keine (objektive) Wertung der beiden erfolgen kann. Um die Gemeinsamkeiten und Abgrenzung zu bisherigen Theorien zu belegen sollen zunachst kurz einige Interpretationsansatze dargestellt werden. In einem Close Reading wird anschli.

Item Description: Printed by C. Whittingham at the Chiswick Press for John Sharpe, 1819. 2 vols., 12mo., with fine engraved and printed titles, and a total of 8 engraved plates after Westall (most original tissue guards present), some minimal offsetting from plates; ORIGINAL BOARDS, very neatly rebacked to style, ORIGINAL PRINTED PAPER LABELS PRESERVED (labels chipped and worn but virtually all lettering entirely legible), uncut, boards mildly age-stained with a few old tape marks, else a most attractive and remarkably clean, crisp set in tastefully restored publisher's binding. The engraved titles, all after Westall and dated 1816, are by Engleheart (Vol. I: Paradise Regained) and Rhodes (Vol. II: Minor Poems). The fine engraved and captioned plates are also after Westall and dated 1816. In the first volume, the plates stand before Paradise Lost (Finden), Samson Agonistes (Romney) and Comus (Heath); in the second, the plates stand before Lycidas (Engleheart), L'Allegro (Heath), Il Penseroso (Mitan), Sonnets (Heath) and Odes (Finden).In the first volume Paradise Regained is paginated by line number only; the other works (including Arcades) are all separately paginated. In the second volume the pagination is continuous (including the Index).Something of a bibliographical puzzle here. The two volumes were clearly published as a set (vide the publisher's labels) but we can find no clear record of them as such. Volume I appears to be unrecorded by Stevens, falling as it does between Sharpe's first edition of 1809 and his quite distinct two-volume edition of 1827. Volume II would appear to be a later issue of Stevens 264 (who records the first edition thus as 1817 despite the dating on the engraved title). He makes the point that Vol. II was 'bound with his Paradise Regained, 1817' but lists no printings in 1819. These complexities notwithstanding, a scarce and delightful pair in well-nigh original period binding. Bookseller Inventory # 7378
