The Karaite Literary Opponents of Saadiah Gaon (Classic Reprint): Samuel Poznanski
Much historical-critical work on the opponents in the Pastoral Epistles has resulted in sweeping generalizations concerning their Jewish and/or Gnostic nature. Literary analyses have been somewhat more promising in focusing on the stereotypical nature of

This book recalls young writers who made their debut in the Third Reich or experienced their literary breakthrough in this period only, to fall victim to dictatorship, organized terror, and war as supporters, accomplices, disparagers, or opponents of National Socialism. Cross-sectional overviews and case descriptions are used to uncover the traces of this lost generation and reveal their literary legacy. The result is a collection of literary ruins and biographical debris that for esthetic or political reasons amply deserve to be recovered from the collective oblivion to which they have been consigned.
In Shakespeare Relocated, Hugh Macrae Richmond uses his previously published essays to illustrate the development of modern attitudes towards religion, politics, and sexuality. He traces the complex evolution from classical and medieval sources to Reformation and Renaissance ones by reviewing literary themes, styles, and attitudes. He stresses Shakespeare´s unique place in the evolution of historical psychology as an author profoundly affected by the Reformation. This study of developing sensibility employs a method of critical analysis bridging the apparent gap between scholarly research and practical criticism and transcends the discontinuities and tensions in modern literary theory. He seeks to harmonize the critical alertness of the New Critics with the traditional scholarship of their opponents, while avoiding the narrowness of many fashionable modern methodologies such as New Historicism, Neo-Freudianism, radical feminism, etc. This historical perspective involves a comparative critical procedure defined as ´´syncretic criticism.´´ It combines close reading and comprehensive perspective over previous literary analogues to identify distinctive progressions towards many modern attitudes about politics, morality, sexuality, and fashion.
Die beiden kleinen »katholischen« Briefe stehen im Neuen Testament am Rande und wurden lange vernachlässigt. Der auf höchstem wissenschaftlichen Niveau geschriebene Kommentar des Zürcher Exegeten Jörg Frey will die Leistung dieser Texte in ihrer Situation herausarbeiten, ohne die sachlich-theologischen Fragen zu verschweigen. Präzise werden der je eigene historische Ort der beiden Schreiben, ihr literarischer Bezugsrahmen, das Profil der jeweiligen Gegner und das spezifische Argumentationsinteresse herausgearbeitet. Exkurse zu den textkritischen Problemen und zur Aufnahme biblischer und frühjüdischer Überlieferungen sowie eine je eigene Synthese der Theologie der beiden Schreiben runden den Kommentar ab. Dabei ergibt sich für den Judasbrief eine Stellung im Gegenüber zur paulinisch-nachpaulinischen Entwicklung, während der 2. Petrusbrief als Zeuge der theologischen Diskurse des 2. Jahrhunderts profiliert wird. In the NT canon, the two minor »catholic« epistles of Jude and Second Peter, are often considered somewhat marginal. Scholarship has neglected them for long. The present commentary aims at demonstrating the particular achievements of the two writings without concealing the open theological questions. More precisely than before, the author elaborates the historical location of the two writings, their literary context, the profile of the respective opponents and the particular interests of the argument. The difficult text critical issues and the reception of Biblical, early Jewish and Apocalyptic material are discussed in separate sections, and a synthesis of the respective theologies of the writings is added. Jude is ultimately read as part of a critical debate with Pauline and post-Pauline developments, whereas Second Peter turns out as a testimony of theological discussions of the second century. Jörg Frey, Dr. theol., Jahrgang 1962, studierte Evangelische Theologie in Tübingen, Erlangen und Jerusalem. Ab 1998 hatte er Professuren für Neues Testament an den Universitäten in Jena und München inne, seit 2010 ist er Inhaber des Lehrstuhls für Neutestamentliche Wissenschaft mit Schwerpunkten Antikes Judentum und Hermeneutik an der Theologischen Fakultät der Universität Zürich und zugleich Research Associate der North West University Potchefstroom (Südafrika). 2003 wurde er zum Pfarrer der Evangelisch-lutherischen Kirche in Bayern ordiniert. Frey ist Autor und Herausgeber zahlreicher Publikationen, seine Forschung konzentriert sich auf die Johanneische Literatur, das antike Judentum, das Judenchristentum und die apokryphe Literatur sowie die Theologie des Neuen Testaments.
This study is based on the current understanding of parody as an ironic and metaliterary type of intertextuality. The affinity between parody and irony asserted in Early Romantic literary theory validates the application of the term to Goethes subtle novel. By presenting an intertextual solution to the enigma of the names, the study reveals the secret target of the narrators parodic wit to be the newly converted Friedrich Schlegel whose recent publications had just carried over previous attacks against Goethes Classicism from the realm of art into the fields of language theory and literature. The book shows how Goethe appropriated his opponents polemical language to retaliate with an ironic evocation of his charges and recommendations in the guise of a romantic novel.
The Brothers - A Story. Herbert George Wells was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Wells returned to a literary genre in which he had always excelled: the satire written in the form of an allegory. In a land torn apart by civil war, Bolaris was fiercely loyal to the Strong Men. So when Number Four informed him that Ratzel, leader of the enemy, had been captured, it was naturally a cause for celebration - that was until Bolaris actually met his great opponent? The likeness between Bolaris and Ratzel was so remarkable that Bolaris was left in no doubt that they were related - brothers, or perhaps even twins. As sworn enemies, and now as his captor, Bolaris had to work out a way to discover the truth of his identity - and do so without sacrificing his loyalty.
