Ellipsis: Of Poetry and the Experience of Language After Heidegger, Holderlin, and Blanchot
Publisher: State University of New York Press | ISBN: 0791471519 | edition 2007 | PDF | 239 pages | 7,2 mb

What is the nature of poetic language when its experience involves an encounter with finitude; with failure, loss, and absence? For Martin Heidegger this experience is central to any thinking that would seek to articulate the meaning of being, but for Friedrich Hölderlin and Maurice Blanchot it is a mark of the tragic and unanswerable demands of poetic language. In Ellipsis, a rigorous, original study on the language of poetry, the language of philosophy, and the limits of the word, William S. Allen offers the first in-depth examination of the development of Heidegger's thinking of poetic language--which remains his most radical and yet most misunderstood work--that carefully balances it with the impossible demands of this experience of finitude, an experience of which H&ounl;lderlin and Blanchot have provided the most searching examinations. In bringing language up against its limits, Allen shows that poetic language not only exposes thinking to its abyssal grounds, but also indicates how the limits of our existence come themselves, traumatically, impossibly, to speak.

Proximity and Distance: Medieval Hebrew and Arabic Poetry
Publisher: Brill Academic Publishers | ISBN: 900413798X | edition 2004 | PDF | 407 pages | 10,7 mb

The first steps in Hebrew secular poetry took place around the turn of the ninth century, under the evident impact of contemporary Arabic poetry. By that time the latter had become consolidated as a courtly poetry, in which luxury and pleasure were among the supreme aspects of social life. Nevertheless, this poetry still preserved many of the social and conceptual values by which it was characterized it its early stages in the jàhiliyya. Hebrew poetry was then ritten in accordance with Arabic poetic rules, in terms of content— jàhilì and courtly, prosody (metre and hyme), linguistic outlook, and rhetorical texture.

Selected Poems of Byron (Wordsworth Poetry Library)
By George Gordon Byron
Wordsworth | April 1, 2022 | ISBN: 9781853264061 / 1853264067
English | 816 pages | HQ PDF | 9.2 MB | RS

'I mean to show things really as they are, not as they ought to be', wrote Byron (1788-1824) in his comic masterpiece Don Juan, which follows the adventures of the hero across the Europe and near East which Byron knew so well, touching on the major political, cultural and social concerns of the day.
This selection includes all of that poem, and selections from Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, and the satirical poems English Bards and Scotch Reviewers and A Vision of Judgement. Paul Wright's detailed introductions place Byron's colourful life and work within their broader social and political contexts, and demonstrate that Byron both fostered and critiqued the notorious 'Byronic myth' of heroic adventure, political action and sexual scandal.
