The Politics Of Exile In Renaissance Italy
Author: Christine Shaw
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
Release Date: 2000-03-23
Pages: 257
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Political exiles were a prominent feature of political life in Renaissance Italy, often a source of intense concern to the states from which they were banished, and a ready instrument for governments wishing to intervene in the affairs of their rivals and enemies. This book, first published in 2000, provides a systematic analysis of the role of exiles in the political life of fifteenth-century Italy. The main focus is on the experiences and reactions of the exiles, and on how Italian states dealt with their own exiles and those of other powers. Siena, notorious in the 1480s for the numbers of her citizens in exile, is used as the model with which other cities are compared. Such a detailed study of the phenomenon of exile also provides alternative perspectives on the nature and power of governments in fifteenth-century Italy, and on ideas about the legitimacy of political authority and political action.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

[The author] has excelled in recreating in the reader's mind the enormity of the tragedy a man suffered, and how he chose to sculptor his choked passion into a concrete beauty...' -Dr Meerza Kaukab, great-grandson of Nawab Wajid Ali Shah The last king of Audh, Nawab Wajid Ali Shah of Lucknow was exiled by the British to Metiabruz in Bengal, on the fringes of Calcutta. Despite being robbed of his rightful throne, the Nawab did not lose hope; instead, he set about establishing a new mini-kingdom on the banks of the River Hoogly. Little by little he brought in the Laknawi way of life to this area of Bengal, so much so that Metiabruz came to be called 'Chota Lucknow'. Extensively researched and evocatively written, this book looks at a forgotten king and how he turned his exile into a victory of sorts.

A Stanley Burnshaw Reader
Author: Stanley Burnshaw
Publisher: University of Georgia Press
Release Date: 2010-08-01
Pages: 304
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A Stanley Burnshaw Reader brings together selections from the major works of poetry and prose that have distinguished Burnshaw as one of the most important voices in twentieth-century letters. Included are essays from Burnshaw's two pioneering critical works: The Seamless Web, praised by the New York Times Book Review as “a defense of poetry that removes it from the realm of man's spiritual luxuries and places it preeminently among his instruments of survival”, and The Poem Itself, a book that deals with forty-five poets of the last century in an entirely novel way which, as Lionel Trilling observed, “allows the Englishspeaking reader an unprecedented intimacy with poems in the original tongues.” Along with a generous excerpt from Robert Frost Himself, this volume offers a representative selection of Burnshaw's poetry and his translations of other poets' work. A Stanley Burnshaw Reader affords those unfamiliar with Burnshaw an ideal introduction to his work. At the same time, readers who know his writings will discover new insights into his long and distinguished career.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming we can somehow make the return journey on our own. In other words, they focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable -- but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps us with both halves of the interpretive task. This new and unique series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into a modern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it can speak powerfully today.
