We are now in front of many facts about the beautiful artistic writing:First: In the last twenty years, the writing beautifulness and artistry in our awareness have been transmitted from the aesthetic view into the expressive view. Now the creative people concern with feeling expression more than the aesthetic applications.Second: We can differentiate three eras of stylistic approaches about the beautifulness and artistry in the writing, the pre-modernism which concerns with power of the meaning connection, the modernism which concerns with aesthetic of the writing and the post modernism, the present era, which concerns with powerful feeling expression.Third: In our globalisation and post-globalisation era, there is a powerful feeling and practice of free writing which doesn't or shouldn't observe the rules, the laws or the traditions in the beautiful writing, the literature, even the genre.Fourth: Now, we are in front of new literary writing which doesn't fit or doesn't want to follow any genre classification, it is a non-genric or trans-generic writing.Five: In this very free seeking era, why we need to study the stylistic elements of the present artistic writing and its law?I will answer the last question first and the other points I will deal with through the chapters of the book. In fact the human is a very selective creature and always seeking the better, and appreciate the best and imitate it, this is a point. In other aspect the deep humanistic instinctual recognition or experience, despite its truthfulness, it is vague and can't exit from the primary view for the world things while the soul is a very complex and a highly knowing creature and can't satisfied by the primary instinctual experience, so it needs the intellectual experience and analysis to reach its goals in everything, not just in aesthetic and beauty. In the process of the analysis, the intellectual recognition and the systematic differentiation of our experiences about the beautiful writing, we don't add or invent something, not present in the text or in the writing or we put some elements which they are strange to the instinctual experience, but in fact, the intellectual analysis of the beautiful writing is a thorough analysis of the instinctual experience. Yes, our intellectual experience is always an analysis of our instinctual experience. So this book is a collection of intellectual analysis of the instinctual experiences in different aspects of the beautiful writing. So, I won't find a new thing, but I will try to show what is present. I believe absolutely that the mind can't find anything but just a tool to explain what the instinct knows and experiences. The mind knows nothing new but shows us what we know.

Classical Genres and English Poetry Routledge Revivals

poets address the same deity and use the same formal elements, the contrast between their poems' styles, intentions and content points up the flexibility of the hymnal genre to accommodate very different poetic intentions. 21.

First published in 1988, this study explains how certain genres created by Classical poets were adapted and sometimes transformed by the poets of the modern world, beginning with the Tudor poets’ rediscovery of the Classical heritage. Most of the long-lived poetic genres are discussed, from familiar examples like the hymn, elegy and eulogy, to less familiar topics such as the recusatio (refusal to write certain kinds of poems), or formal structures such as priamel. By combining criticism with literary history, the author explores the degree to which certain poets were consciously imitating models, and demonstrates how various generic forms reflect the literary concerns of individual poets as well as the general concerns of their age. The poets discussed range over the whole of Graeco-Roman antiquity, and in English from Wyatt to Yeats and Auden. A detailed and fascinating title, this study will appeal to teachers and students of both English and Classical literature.

In the five-canon approach, peer critique of student poems takes place in online environments, freeing up class time for writing exercises and lessons based on the five canons of classical rhetoric: invention, arrangement, style, memory, and delivery.

Shakespeare s Poetic Styles

It seems to assign an unwarranted priority to style or language. In a related way, the question insists that drama is primarily, even essentially, a form of literature and so minimizes its non-linguistic elements.

First published in 1980. At their most successful, Shakespeare's styles are strategies to make plain the limits of thought and feeling which define the significance of human actions. John Baxter analyses the way in which these limits are reached, and also provides a strong argument for the idea that the power of Shakespearean drama depends upon the co-operation of poetic style and dramatic form. Three plays are examined in detail in the text: The Tragedy of Mustapha by Fulke Greville and Richard II and Macbeth by Shakespeare.

This book traces the development of hypermetric verse in Old English and compares it to the cognate traditions of Old Norse and Old Saxon. The study illustrates the inherent flexibility of the hypermetric line and shows how poets were able to manipulate this flexibility in different contexts for different practical and rhetorical purposes. This mode of analysis is therefore able to show what degree of control the poets had over the traditional alliterative line, what effects they were able to produce with various stylistic choices, and how attention to poetic style can aid in literary analysis.

Yuri Tynianov was a key figure of Russian Formalism, an intellectual movement in early 20th century Russia that also included Viktor Shklovsky and Roman Jakobson. Tynianov developed a groundbreaking conceptualization of literature as a system within—and in constant interaction with—other cultural and social systems. His essays on Russian literary classics, like Pushkin’s Eugene Onegin and works by Dostoevsky and Gogol, as well as on the emerging art form of filmmaking, provide insight into the ways art and literature evolve and adapt new forms of expression. Although Tynianov was first a scholar of Russian literature, his ideas transcend the boundaries of any one genre or national tradition. Permanent Evolution gathers together for the first time Tynianov’s seminal articles on literary theory and film, including several articles never before translated into English.

Words’ Wonder: Beginners’ Guide to Literature is an attempt to introduce students to the wonder of words in literature. The beauty and extraordinariness of words used in literature may help increase students’ aesthetic and intellectual growth. Studying literature is not merely cognitive oriented but also transformative. By gaining knowledge about literature from a variety of culture across the world, students can grow their sense of becoming human beings so as to develop their global citizenship, tolerance and ethical responsibility. In Indonesian context, as in any parts of the world sometimes wrecked by prejudice and intolerance, good values from different literary traditions should be implanted in the young age as early as possible. Only then can people foster positive attitudes, put aside resentment and bigotry, remove anger and bitterness. The purpose of this guidebook is thus to make students aware of the joy, charm and fascination of reading literary works, while cultivating their artistic, affective and social aspects of life through the power of words.

Written in Johnny Saldaña′s elegant and accessible style, Thinking Qualitatively: Methods of Mind boldly pursues the challenge of teaching students not just how to collect and analyze data, but how to actively think about them. Each chapter presents one "method of mind" (thinking analytically, realistically, symbolically, ethically, multidisciplinarily, artistically, summarily, interpretively, and narratively), together with applications, a vignette or story related to the thinking modality, points to remember, and exercises. Designed to help researchers "rise above the data," the book explores how qualitative research designs, data collection, data analyses, and write-ups can be enriched through over 60 different lenses, filters, and angles on social life. Venturing into more evocative and multidimensional ways to examine the complex patterns of daily living, the book reveals how the researcher′s mind thinks heuristically to transcend the descriptive and develop "highdeep" insights about the human condition.

Taking a cognitive approach, this book asks what poetry, and in particular Holocaust poetry, does to the reader - and to what extent the translation of this poetry can have the same effects. It is informed by current theoretical discussion and features many practical examples. Holocaust poetry differs from other genres of writing about the Holocaust in that it is not so much concerned to document facts as to document feelings and the sense of an experience. It shares the potential of all poetry to have profound effects on the thoughts and feelings of the reader. This book examines how the openness to engagement that Holocaust poetry can engender, achieved through stylistic means, needs to be preserved in translation if the translated poem is to function as a Holocaust poem in any meaningful sense. This is especially true when historical and cultural distance intervenes. The first book of its kind and by a world-renowned scholar and translator, this is required reading.
