The Labyrinthine Journey

The Labyrinthine Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Labyrinthine Journey by Luciana Cavallaro Book Resume:

Based on Plato's Atlantis story as written in his dialogues: Critias and Timaeas.  Can our heroes find the elusive talisman to continue their quest? Follow Evan as he continues his odyssey as Servant of the Gods in The Labyrinthine Journey. The quest to locate the sacred object adds pressure to the uneasy alliance between Evan and the Atlanteans. His inability to accept the world he’s in, and his constant battle with Zeus, both threaten to derail the expedition and his life. Traversing the mountainous terrain of the Peloponnese and Corinthian Gulf to the centre of the spiritual world, Evan meets with Pythia, Oracle of Delphi. Her cryptic prophecy reveals much more than he expected; something that changes his concept of the ancient world and his former way of life. Will Evan and his friends succeed in their quest to find the relics and stop the advent of Christianity?

The Idea of the Labyrinth from Classical Antiquity through the Middle Ages

The Labyrinthine Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Idea of the Labyrinth from Classical Antiquity through the Middle Ages by Penelope Reed Doob Book Resume:

Ancient and medieval labyrinths embody paradox, according to Penelope Reed Doob. Their structure allows a double perspective—the baffling, fragmented prospect confronting the maze-treader within, and the comprehensive vision available to those without. Mazes simultaneously assert order and chaos, artistry and confusion, articulated clarity and bewildering complexity, perfected pattern and hesitant process. In this handsomely illustrated book, Doob reconstructs from a variety of literary and visual sources the idea of the labyrinth from the classical period through the Middle Ages. Doob first examines several complementary traditions of the maze topos, showing how ancient historical and geographical writings generate metaphors in which the labyrinth signifies admirable complexity, while poetic texts tend to suggest that the labyrinth is a sign of moral duplicity. She then describes two common models of the labyrinth and explores their formal implications: the unicursal model, with no false turnings, found almost universally in the visual arts; and the multicursal model, with blind alleys and dead ends, characteristic of literary texts. This paradigmatic clash between the labyrinths of art and of literature becomes a key to the metaphorical potential of the maze, as Doob's examination of a vast array of materials from the classical period through the Middle Ages suggests. She concludes with linked readings of four "labyrinths of words": Virgil's Aeneid, Boethius' Consolation of Philosophy, Dante's Divine Comedy, and Chaucer's House of Fame, each of which plays with and transforms received ideas of the labyrinth as well as reflecting and responding to aspects of the texts that influenced it. Doob not only provides fresh theoretical and historical perspectives on the labyrinth tradition, but also portrays a complex medieval aesthetic that helps us to approach structurally elaborate early works. Readers in such fields as Classical literature, Medieval Studies, Renaissance Studies, comparative literature, literary theory, art history, and intellectual history will welcome this wide-ranging and illuminating book.

The Gaze and the Labyrinth

The Labyrinthine Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Gaze and the Labyrinth by Gaetana Marrone Book Resume:

In this, the first comprehensive book on Liliana Cavani, Gaetana Marrone redraws the map of postwar Italian cinema to make room for this extraordinary filmmaker, whose representations of transgressive eroticism, spiritual questing, and psychological extremes test the limits of the medium, pushing it into uncharted areas of discovery. Cavani's film The Night Porter (1974) created a sensation in the United States and Europe. But in many ways her critically renowned endeavors--which also include Francesco di Assisi, Galileo, I cannibali, Beyond Good and Evil, The Berlin Affair, and several operas and documentaries--remain enigmatic to audiences. Here Marrone presents Cavani's work as a cinema of ideas, showing how it takes pleasure in the telling of a story and ultimately revolts against all binding ideological and commercial codes. The author explores the rich visual language in which Cavani expresses thought, and the cultural icons that constitute her style and images. This approach affords powerful insights into the intricate interlacing of narrated events. We also come to understand the importance assigned to the gaze in the genesis of desire and the acquisition of knowledge. The films come to life in this book as the classical tragedies Cavani intended, where rebels and madmen experience conflict between historical and spiritual reality, the present and the past. Offering intertextual analyses within such fields as psychology, history, and cultural studies, along with production information gleaned from Cavani's personal archives, Marrone boldly advances our understanding of an intriguing, important body of cinematic work.

Sole to Soul

The Labyrinthine Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Sole to Soul by Eleanor MacLellan Book Resume:

When her teenage son’s escalating self-sabotage jeopardized the fragile balance in author Eleanor MacLellan’s blended family, she and her husband enrolled him in an alternative high school that required the parents to complete a senior project before their son could graduate. She chose to make a large canvas labyrinth for her church and community with the help of five friends. As the women worked on the physical labyrinth project, they explored the twisting paths of their life stories, which traversed the loss of a fourteen-year-old child, a serious teenage auto accident, a family coffin-building tradition, the return of an adult child given up for adoption at birth, a cancer diagnosis, and friendships forged in poverty. MacLellan discovered that her real senior project was not just to create a labyrinth, but rather to reclaim a strong family and to find a deeper, creative faith for the journey ahead.

A Mazing of the Text

The Labyrinthine Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

A Mazing of the Text by Margaret M. Bolovan Book Resume:

Poetry that employs images and structures of the labyrinth simultaneously involves the poet's contemplative wanderings or deeper descents into self while searching for meaning. As a mythic symbol, the labyrinth also extends outside of any individual work, necessitating intertextual analysis in the quest to unravel the labyrinthine threads left in the «mille longs détours» of French poetic discourse. A Mazing of the Text explores the multifaceted nature of the labyrinth as manifest in selected French texts from the sixteenth to the twentieth century. Works by Joachim Du Bellay, Théophile de Viau, Saint-Amant, Thomas Corneille, Jean Racine, Stéphane Mallarmé, and Marguerite Yourcenar are examined in light of the metaphorical reflective capacity and the pluridimensional quality of mythic signification.

The Labyrinthine Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Notturno by Gabriele D'Annunzio Book Resume:

The first complete English translation of D'Annunzio's haunting book-length prose poem Composed during a period of extended bed rest, Gabriele D'Annunzio's Notturno is a moving prose poem in which imagination, experience, and remembrance intertwine. The somber atmosphere of the poem reflects the circumstances of its creation. With his vision threatened and his eyes completely bandaged, D'Annunzio suffered months of near-total blindness and pain-wracked infirmity in 1921, and yet he managed to write on small strips of paper, each wide enough for a single line. When the poet eventually regained his sight, he put together these strips to create the lyrical and innovative Notturno. In Notturno D'Annunzio forges an original prose that merges aspects of formal poetry and autobiographical narrative. He fuses the darkness and penumbra of the present with the immediate past, haunted by war memories, death, and mourning, and also with the more distant past, revolving mainly around his mother and childhood. In this remarkable translation of the work, Stephen Sartarelli preserves the antiquated style of D'Annunzio's poetic prose and the tension of his rich and difficult harmonies, bringing to contemporary readers the full texture and complexity of a creation forged out of darkness.

Figuring Poesis

The Labyrinthine Journey [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Figuring Poesis by Evans Lansing Smith Book Resume:

Figuring Poesis focuses on the interrelations between myth and geometrical symbolism in literature since the end of the Second World War. Detailed readings of a wide range of works contextualize allusions to the myths of the apocalypse, the great goddess, alchemy, the labyrinth, and the descent to the underworld. The geometrical symbols that occur in conjunction with these myths serve as images of poesis and hermeneusis. The conclusion brings postmodernist paintings and architecture into the discussion, and develops an iconography of form.
