Michael Triegel, English Edition
39,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 2010, the artist's reputation as a master of portraiture prompted the diocese of Regensburg to commission an official portrait of Pope Benedict XVI from Michael Triegel. Born in Erfurt and a graduate of the College of Graphics and Book Art in Leipzig, Triegel did sketches for a portrait during a Papal general audience in Rome, and the portrait will be unveiled to the public during an exhibition of his works in Leipzig. Michael Triegel's works are a combination of old master virtuosity and perfect craftsmanship. His pictures draw on Christian symbolism and classical mythology alike, and speak the language of Italian art from the Early Renaissance to Mannerism. They are thus out of step with the fashions and trends of the day, and yet in their provocative reflections offer critical takes on the present day. The monograph looks at 120 works, principally paintings, dating from 2003 to 2010. Together with illustrations of preparatory sketches, drawings, watercolours and etchings plus scholarly essays and commentaries on the works illustrated, the book provides a representative survey of the artist's extensive oeuvre.

Seminar paper from the year 2009 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, grade: 1,3, University of Erfurt (Sprachwissenschaft), course: Regionale Varietäten, language: English, abstract: Every language changes over time. Due to historical, political and social events, like population shifts or movements, a language develops and becomes versatile, as intralinguistic variations emerge between different regions and dialects.One of the most important changes in the English language, which appeared especially in the south of England during the 15th to 18th centuries, was a Chain Shift, the so-called Great Vowel Shift.[INT1] A Chain Shift is "a change in the position of two phonemes in which one moves away from an original position that is occupied by the other."(Labov 1994: 118)The linguist William Labov classifies three principles, which are applicable to all the Chain Shifts:Principle I: long vowels rise (as in the Great Vowel Shift)Principle II: short vowels fallPrinciple IIa: the nuclei of upgliding diphthongs fallPrinciple III: back vowels move to the front(Labov 1994:116)

Death Idioms in the English and German language

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject German Studies - Comparative Literature, grade: 2,3, University of Erfurt, course: Contrastive Linguistics, language: English, abstract: This paper consists of two major parts, a theoretical framework and a contrastive analysis of idioms of death in the English and German language. The first part deals with the linguistic definition of the term "idiom", including possibilities for their classification. The second section of the first part is going to present the concept of euphemism followed by a brief explanation and categorization of metaphors and the attempt of giving possible reasons for the maintaining taboo of death in western culture. The purpose of the second part of this paper is to analyze and compare a number of English and German idioms of death contrastively, in order to identify lexical and semantic similarities, including the investigation of the origin of certain expressions. Subsequently, a short closing reflection will end up this paper.As death plays a significant role not only in western society but in communities all around the globe, idioms related to death became an important tool in human communication. But what is the actual purpose of using paraphrases in order to relate to death in an utterance? Why do idioms of death have a cultural importance and how is an idiom actually defined? Do certain idioms of death have the same semantic meaning in other languages?Human communication has created a great number of idioms and figures of speech which range throughout every section of the daily life and appear in every situation possible. As this phenomenon indeed shows its importance, linguists have created the field of phraseology to investigate such expressions. Based on language contact and historical events, many idioms have synonyms and equivalent counterparts in several languages. Learning the specific idioms related to a certain culture helps to get to know more about the history, ethics and social values of a certain community.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: 1,3, University of Erfurt, course: Hip Hop Studies, language: English, abstract: The aim of this paper is to take a look at the technique of sampling regarding the purpose, a definition and the origin of this method. Furthermore, emphasis will be put on the controversy of sampling, followed by a short explanation of the fundamental principles of the copyright law. Finally, a conclusion will summarize the core results and add some closing remarks to this topic.It only took two turntables and a microphone to turn a ghetto dominated by violence, into a united neighborhood and community filled with enough positive energy to create a music genre and culture that took over the whole world rapidly. Ever since the Hip Hop culture emerged in the 1970s in the dirty corners and hopeless streets of the South Bronx in New York, the vinyl record has played a huge role in the development and growth of this movement towards main stream culture. A simple vinyl record has been able to give poor people a way to transform their anger and desperation into art. Even in the age of digital technology, the so called black gold is still relevant, building the foundation for artistic disciplines like scratching and sampling.Since the early days, the technique of sampling has been the core element in making Hip Hop, be it adopting Bruce Lee moves and gymnastic elements to create a new dancing style, taking synthesizer- or vocal sounds for scratching, or the adoption and reconstruction of melodies and drum loops from dusty vinyl records to come up with a whole new way of music production. But can we really see this method as a creative and unique way of self-expression or is it rather a lack of creativity and even artistic laziness?

"Beowulf" and Beyond
69,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Beowulf and Beyond is a collection of papers mainly on Medieval English (i.e. Old and Middle English) language, literature and culture, often using comparative and interdisciplinary approaches. It features major authors and texts such as Beowulf , Chaucer, the Wyclif Bible , Margery Kempe, and Malory, but also the poem Judgement Day II, the Épinal-Erfurt glossary (ca. 680), and the Assize of bread (1256), a legal document. The more linguistically oriented studies deal with the language of Old English and Old Norse runic inscriptions, with OE word-formation (verbs with prefixed adverbs such as oferfaran , words for people), the loss of final plosive consonants in late Middle English rhyme-words, the use of hyphens in ME, and a comparison between Medieval English and German. Some contributions are specifically concerned with teaching Medieval texts to today's students ( Beowulf , Malory). The volume is also a document of the activities of IAUPE, the International Association of University Professors of English. It contains a selection of the papers that were originally presented at the IAUPE Medieval Symposia at Munich/Germany and Vancouver/Canada.

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Erfurt (Philosophische Fakultät), course: Shakespearean Comedy, language: English, abstract: The 'dream' in 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' implies a world of imagination, illusion and unconsciousness. In addition, the tradition and the popular beliefs of the midsummer festivals describe a time of unleashed natural forces (BOOCK, 1981: 70). The audience of the play indeed witnesses magical incidents in the fairies' forest, where the fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania, rule over the natural processes. Human beings seem to behave irrationally under the spell of these fairies and in the surrounding of this magic forest (SHAKESPEARE, 1980: II - IV). However, in contrast, the city of Athens is dominated by the rational Theseus, duke of Athens, who only believes in what cool reason is able to produce and to understand (SHAKESPEARE, 1980: V, i, 2 - 22). The contrast of imagination and reason represents one of the major oppositional pairs of themes of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' (KERRIGAN, 1998: 20ff). It becomes indirectly clear through the opposing worlds of forest and city and the ongoing actions in these two places. Furthermore, in the last scene of the play, the audience experiences directly a controversy between Theseus and his wife, Hippolyta, concerning the truth of the story about the incidents in the forest happened to the young Athenians Hermia, Helena, Lysander and Demetrius. Consequently, it is also a controversy about the value of imagination and reason (SHAKESPEARE, 1980: V, i, 1 - 27). Moreover, questions of imagination are brought up on another level. The play within the play of 'Pyramus and Thisbe', which is rehearsed by craftsmen throughout the story and performed at the wedding ceremony in the last scene, offers an increase of imaginative perspectives.
