  • In Writing against War, Charles Andrews integrates literary analysis and peace studies to create innovative new ways to view experimental British fiction in the interwar period.

    The cataclysm of the First World War gave rise to the British Peace Movement, a spectrum of pacifist, internationalist, and antiwar organizations and individuals. Antiwar sentiments found expression not only in editorials, criticism, and journalism but also in novels and other works of literature. Book Writing against War: Literature, Activism, and the British Peace Movement Writing against War examines the work of Aldous Huxley, Storm Jameson, Siegfried Sassoon, Rose Macaulay, and Virginia Woolf to analyze the effects of their attempts to employ fiction in the service of peace activism.

    It further traces how Huxley, Woolf, and others sought to reconcile their antiwar beliefs with implacable military violence. The British Peace Movements failure to halt the rise of fascism and the Second World War continues to cast a shadow over contemporary pacifist movements.

    Writing about War will fascinate scholars of peace studies and literature and offers valuable insights for current-day peace activists and artists who seek to integrate creativity with activism.

  • The Victorians are known for their commitment to materialism, evidenced by the dominance of empiricism in the sciences and realism in fiction.

    Yet there were other strains of thinking during the period in the physical sciences, social sciences, and literature that privileged the spacesРїС—Р… betweenРїС—Р… the material and immaterial.

    This book examines how the emerging language of the “imponderable” helped Victorian writers and physicists make sense of new experiences of modernity. As Sarah Alexander argues, while Victorian physicists were theorizing ether, energy and entropy, and non-Euclidean space and atom theories, writers such as Charles Dickens, William Morris, and Joseph Conrad used concepts of the imponderable to explore key issues of capitalism, imperialism, and social unrest.

  • Excerpt from The Tradition of the Goddess Fortuna in Roman Literature and in the Transitional Period The purpose of this essay is to study the nature and functions of the Goddess of Fortune in Roman literature and the literature of the transitional period.1 The frequent appearance of this figure in documents of the Middle Ages is well-known, although, perhaps, not adequately appreciated.

    It is well-known, too, that the goddess existed in earlier days in Rome, and was actually wor shipped as a prominent member of the pantheon. She is important, therefore, as a deity who was taken over after the transition from a polytheistic to a monotheistic religion, and her interest thus becomes twofold.

    Traits of the goddess in Rome, Which were re ected in the literature, would naturally survive in the literary treatment of later ages. This fact would suggest the possibility that some of the Old religious feeling might be retained in the Christian period. Book The Tradition of the Goddess Fortuna in Roman Literature and in the Transitional Period (Classic Reprint) Are the references to Fortuna in the Middle Ages simply orna mental and perfunctory, or has She inspired fresh imaginative endeavor? Does She appear in only one sort of literature: for example, as a lay figure in a Classical background? Or is she a vital element in every variety of plot?

    Where precisely does the change from religion to allegory occur, or indeed does it really occur at all?

  • Excerpt from The Sacred Books and Early Literature of the East, Vol. 10: India and Buddhism It has been pointed out by our Western thinkers that in such a system there is very little use for God; there is per haps no room for him.

    Hence Buddhism has been frequently accused of being a form of atheism. Book The Sacred Books and Early Literature of the East, Vol. 10: India and Buddhism (Classic Reprint) Its believers deny this; they are willing to accept any number of deities.

    Only their thought centers not on gods, but on man, on mans progress rising or falling through many transmigrations of body, but always capable of attaining superiority to and thus escape from the wheel of life. Man, the immaterial spirit, may rise above both the material and the immaterial world, and thereby reach Nirvana.

  • Excerpt from Scrolls, Vol. 2 of 2: Essays on Jewish History and Literature, and Kindred Subjects Year as for the last thirty years dominated by the Russian question. The fact is most keenly felt in lands of freedom, and above all, in the United States, which receives the bulk of the Jewish fugitives from Russian tyranny.

    Not only is the religious and general communal life conditioned on the rapid increase of Jewish settlements and the consequent necessity of providing work for the new arrivals, of caring for the dependents amongst them, and of trying to raise them as quickly as possible to the level of American citizenship; not only is the question of restriction of immigration a prominent Jewish ques tion, but there is at present the only political question for Jews in the United States, that of the Russian passport.

    The commercial treaty concluded with Russia, in 1832, provides for the mutual freedom of residence in the territories of either of the contracting parties, and yet Russia takes the stand that She has the right to subject American Jews to the same exceptional laws, which She has found proper to impose upon her own subjects. Presidents and con gresses have repeatedly pronounced this a wilful mis interpretation oi the treaty, and Jews feelingindignant at the attempt to reduce them to citizens of the second class, be it at home or abroad, are justly protesting against this continued insult.

    No American states man has ever dared to question the justice of the. Book Scrolls, Vol. 2 of 2: Essays on Jewish History and Literature, and Kindred Subjects (Classic Reprint) About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
