1 A Wilderness of Possibilities: Urdu Studies in Transnational Perspective

Kathryn Hansen and David Lelyveld (eds.)

Oxford University Press, New Delhi, India, 2005, 0-19-567020-5 / 9780195670202, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 15 Cms x 23 Cms 
Over the past forty years the study of Urdu literature has played a dynamic role in contemporary discourses on culture and history, reaching out to a far-flung international community of scholars. The ten essays in this volume, assembled for Professor C. M. Naim, a pioneer of Urdu studies in the United States, exemplify the changing place of Urdu in the world today. They discuss diverse aspects of Urdu and Persian literature and poetry, between the sixteenth and twentieth centuries. The focus is mainly on Urdu poetry offering a comprehensive introduction to the sociology, culture and politics of its enchanting and complex world but it also includes essays on travelogues, print journalism and a play. In the first part, contributors explore the divergent social and political spaces that Urdu literature has occupied through the centuries. In the second, they critique the paradigms that have informed Urdu literary history and point to new methodologies of reading. Pillars of poetry like Ghalib and Iqbal, women writing from the zanana, popular dramatists, travellers to Britain, and modern novelists form the subjects of this wide-ranging collection. The contributors are specialists in the field and include such distinguished scholars as Kumkum Sangari, Barbara Metcalf, Gail Minault, and Aditya Behl as well as new scholars in the field doing some really interesting work such as Ramya Sreenivasan. The authors use a combination of approaches: while some articles focus on well-known texts, others focus on individual poets and writers. The book includes lucid new translations of texts not yet available to English readers. It will interest all scholars and students of South Asian cultural history and literary studies.

Part I is a systematic exposition of the theory, concentrating on the concepts of theme, expressive device, poetic world, etc. Part II and III apply these concepts to a structuralist portrayal of Leo Tolstoy's tales for children (shown to be A War and Peace in miniature) and of the medieval Latin author Archpoet of Cologne (with special emphasis on his Mock Penitent).

Terence and the Language of Roman Comedy, Evangelos Karakasis
35 Terence and the Language of Roman Comedy

Evangelos Karakasis

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2005, 0-521-84298-0 / 9780521842983, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, New, 216 x 138 Mm 
This book offers a comprehensive examination of the language of Roman comedy in general and that of Terence in particular. The study explores Terence’s use of language to differentiate his characters and his language in relation to the language of the comic fragments of the palliata, the togata and the atellana. Linguistic categories in the Terentian corpus explored include colloquialisms, archaisms, hellenisms and idiolectal features. Terence is shown to give his old men an old-fashioned and verbose tone, while low characters are represented as using colloquial diction. An examination of Eunuchus?language shows it to be closer to the Plautine linguistic tradition. The book also provides a thorough linguistic/stylistic commentary on all the fragments of the palliata, the togata and the atellana. It shows that Terence, except in the case of his Eunuchus, consciously distances himself from the linguistic/stylistic tradition of Plautus followed by all other comic poets. ?Explores the linguistic characterisation in Terence’s works ?Provides the first commentary in the English language on the comic fragments the fabula palliata, togata and atellana ?Examines the language of Roman comedy from early Latin to the 6th century AD Contents Part I. Linguistic Differentiation in Terence: 1. Colloquialisms; 2. Archaisms; 3. Senilis makrologia perissologia; 4. Hellenisms; 5. Features of elevated language; 6. Idiolect; 7. Plautus in Terence. The case of the Eunuchus; Part II. Linguistic and Stylistic Unity in Roman Comedy: 8. Terence, Plautus and the palliata; 9. Terence, Plautus and the togata; 10. Terence, Plautus and the atellana.
