This use can be traced in the work of major cultural figures not just in Denmark and Scandinavia but also in the wider world. They have been attracted to his creative mixing of genres, his complex use of pseudonyms, his rhetoric and literary style, and his rich images, parables, and allegories. The present volume documents this

The study integrates a theory of reading and a theory of textual production by drawing attention to those aspects

This study is concerned with the structure of verb phrases in English and Spanish, and with syntactic processes involving VP and Vo. A primary focus of attention is auxiliary verbs. It is argued that the structure dominating these verbs is essentially the same in English and Spanish, as is the structure dominating auxiliaries and 'main' verbs in each language. It must be concluded that the occurrence of distinct syntactic processes affecting auxiliaries and other VP constituents in the two

Le but de ce livre est de démontrer les contradictions et inconsistances de Voltaire qui, en dépit des croyances selon lesquelles il passe pour le grand défenseur des minorités religieuses, de la tolérance et de la liberté de la presse, a eu d’énormes difficultés à tolérer les journalistes qui encensaient le pouvoir et l’église ou qui sapaient sa réputation littéraire par la critique et l’analyse de ses œuvres.
