Product Description & Reviews

Giordano Bruno and the Geometry of Language brings to the fore a sixteenth-century philosopher's role in early modern Europe as a bridge between science and literature, or more specifically, between the spatial paradigm of geometry and that of language. Arielle Saiber examines how, to invite what Bruno believed to be an infinite universe-its qualities and vicissitudes-into the world of language, Bruno forged a system of 'figurative' vocabularies: number, form, space, and word. This verbal and symbolic system in which geometric figures are seen to underlie rhetorical figures, is what Saiber calls 'geometric rhetoric.' Through analysis of Bruno's writings, Saiber shows how Bruno's writing necessitates a crafting of space, and is, in essence, a lexicon of spatial concepts. This study constitutes an original contribution both to scholarship on Bruno and to the fields of early modern scientific and literary studies. It also addresses the broader question of what role geometry has in the formation of any language and literature of any place and time.

Language and Community in Early England: Imagining Distance in Medieval Literature (Routledge Studies in Medieval Literature and Culture)
By Ingramcontent
ean: 9781138676619, isbn: 1138676616,
This book examines the development of English as a written vernacular and identifies that development as a process of community building that occurred in a multilingual context. Moving through the eighth century to the thirteenth century, and finally to the sixteenth-century antiquarians who collected medieval manuscripts, it suggests that this important period in the history of English can only be understood if we loosen our insistence on a sharp divide between Old and Middle English and place

J.R.R. Tolkien's Double Worlds and Creative Process: Language and Life
By Palgrave Macmillan
ean: 9780230623149, isbn: 023062314X,
A close colleague of J.R.R. Tolkien for many years during their editorial work on the various manuscripts of the Ancrene Wisse at Oxford University, Arne Zettersten offers here a personally-informed analysis of Tolkien’s strongly visual fantasy fiction.  In light of Tolkien's unusual life experience and enthusiasm for the study of languages, Zettersten locates the same animating passions in the well-known fictions that drove that great author as a youth, a soldier, a linguist, and an Oxford
