Furious: Myth, Gender, And The Origins Of Lady Macbeth, 2019 The Graduate Center, City University of New York
Furious: Myth, Gender, And The Origins Of Lady Macbeth, Emma King
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
This thesis attempts to understand the fabulously complex and poisonously unsettling Lady Macbeth as a product of classical reception and intertextuality in early modern England. Whence comes her “undaunted mettle” (1.7.73)? Why is she, like the regicide she helps commit, such a “bloody piece of work” (2.3.108)? How does her ability to be “bloody, bold, and resolute” (4.1.81), as Macbeth is commanded to be, reflect canonical literary ideas, early modern or otherwise, regarding women, gender, and violence? Approaching texts in the literary canon as the result of transformation and reception, this research analyzes the ...
Ivan And His Doubles: The Failure Of Intellect In The Brothers Karamazov, 2019 Liberty University
Ivan And His Doubles: The Failure Of Intellect In The Brothers Karamazov, Alex Donley
Montview Liberty University Journal of Undergraduate Research
The purpose of this research is to explore Dostoevsky’s theodicy in The Brothers Karamazov, including key critical commentary that enhances an understanding of the text. One of the novel’s title characters, Ivan, embodies the emerging spirit of intellectualism and freethinking in nineteenth-century Europe. He confronts the Christian concept of God in two famous speeches. First, Ivan’s “Rebellion” epitomizes the problem of evil by asking why an omnipotent, omnibenevolent God allows earthy atrocities. Second, Ivan’s “Grand Inquisitor” rejects the moral freedom given to men, reasoning that it is too great a burden for mankind to bear. These ...
Disbelieved Through Millennia: Cassandra As Woman Truth-Teller And Translator, 2019 Seattle Pacific University
Disbelieved Through Millennia: Cassandra As Woman Truth-Teller And Translator, Marissa Lewis
This paper investigates two major characterizations of the mythological figure Cassandra, reading her in Aeschylus’ Agamemnon and Seneca’s Agamemnon as a woman truth-teller and translator. It develops a notion of translation as negotiation of discursive space and breaking open of boundaries, including boundaries between pairs of languages, experiences, times, and places. This sense of translation draws on the reception theory of Charles Martindale and privileges the discursive location of the translator as integral to their translation; a specifically female translator occupies different discursive spaces than her male counterpart due to the social experience of gender. In Aeschylus’ Agamemnon, Cassandra ...
The Scorned Woman: Ancient And Modern, 2019 Union College - Schenectady, NY
The Scorned Woman: Ancient And Modern, Liza Wolf
“Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” is a famous misquotation that has contributed to the prominence of the scorned woman as a culturally recognized figure. However, this idea goes further back into Classical times and can be seen in the writing of various Roman writers. The scorned woman has not disappeared over time, but rather has transformed in order to remain relevant in a modern world.
This thesis begins by looking at three Classical scorned women (Juno, Circe, and Medea) and analyzing the portrayal of these characters in order to attempt to define a scorned woman. Using Ovid ...
The Manichaean Letters In The Turkish Folk Culture, 2019 Ministry of Higher and Secondary Specialized Education of the Republic of Uzbekistan
The Manichaean Letters In The Turkish Folk Culture, Alimuhammedov Rikhstilla
The writing is one of the great discoveries in human history. Modern and old languages in their history had used different types of writings. In particular, the Turkic language also used the alphabetical writing system. Among them there are Kok Turk (Turk Runic), Uighur, Arabic, Latin, Cyrillic letters. These writings were commonly used by all Turkic people. However, in the scripts used for the Turkic language, there were several types of letters that were used by tribes or religious philosophers. For example, the Syrian script was used by Turkic-Syrian tribes, and the inscription of Brahmi was used by the Turkic ...

In The Works Of Makhmud Zamakhshari Analysis Of Rule Word Category, Mirziyatov Shuhrat
This article, devoted to the analysis of parts of speech in the works of Makhmud Zamakhshari, addresses the question of conjugation of verbs in the last chapter named “Tasrifu-l-af’al” of the book “Mukaddamatu-l-adab”. The article emphasizes that the verb is an important part of speech in Arabic, that it is impossible to master the grammatical rules and categories without knowing its morphological features, that some parts of speech, especially masdars, the degrees of adjectives are formed from verbal roots. In “Mukaddamatu-l-Adab” was written that verbs in Arabic are divided into verbs with three and four roots and the majority ...

On The Scientific-Critical Text Of "Kazazyinu-L-Maoniy", Namozova Zilola
The study of the lyrical heritage of Alisher Navoi has always been an important issue. However, the study of the texts has been widespread in the last century. In particular, the textological study of the “Hazoyinu-l-Ma'ani” divan was initiated by Hamid Suleiman in the 20th century. The scientist conducted a great deal of research on the “Hazayinu-l-Ma'ani”, the first complete scientific toolkit. In the introductory part of the study, it was pointed out that this publication should be clarified in determining the factors that led to great discrimination and objections in the literature. The aim of the research ...

Cicero And His Exploration Of Frienship, 2019 University of Puget Sound
Cicero And His Exploration Of Frienship, Madison Brown-Moffitt
Honors Program Theses
The purpose of this paper is to explore the reasons Cicero had for writing on morals and friendships following the Civil Wars between Pompey and Caesar. This exploration uses a great deal of background information, detailing Cicero’s relationships with Pompey and Caesar, before addressing several of his works that address friendship, and finally looking at how his philosophical musings influenced his friendship with a man named Matius. The relationships that Cicero had are the inspiration for his writings, and as such are given appropriate attention before moving on to the works that were inspired by the events in Cicero ...
Commission Of Two Narratives Of The Psyche: Reading Poqéakh In Nella Larsen’S Quicksand And Ralph Ellison’S Invisible Man, 2019 Clark Atlanta University
Commission Of Two Narratives Of The Psyche: Reading Poqéakh In Nella Larsen’S Quicksand And Ralph Ellison’S Invisible Man, Genuyah S. Reuven
Electronic Theses & Dissertations Collection for Atlanta University & Clark Atlanta University
This study focuses on the novels of Quicksand by Nella Larsen and Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison to explore the phenomenon of poqéakh (פֹּקֵחַ) through the fictionalized lived experiences of their protagonists, Helga Crane and invisible man. Each novelist’s representation of poqéakh offers a portrait of the protagonists’ psyches. The narratives reveal an unsettling truth for the protagonists, who are members of a population often targeted, stigmatized, and fashioned or re-fashioned by Americans and various environs in American society, that they must assimilate—not only their bodies, but their psyches too to fit the “white man’s ...
Methods Of Teaching Latin: Theory, Practice, Application, 2019 Washington University in St. Louis
Methods Of Teaching Latin: Theory, Practice, Application, Morgan A. Nicoulin
Arts & Sciences Electronic Theses and Dissertations
In this project, I present a way to effectively blend modern theories of language acquisition and the contemporary practice of teaching Latin. I intend to demonstrate that a curriculum is able to balance both traditional and innovative philosophies by adapting Second Language Acquisition Theory’s idealized way to learn a language to fit the realistic limitations of the classroom. I begin with a discussion of the history of language pedagogy, focusing on Latin’s influence on the study of language learning from antiquity to present. Next, I present the key topics in SLA and the practical implications of this research ...

The Delphic Plague : A Study In Athenian Oracular Rejection As Evident In The Oedipus Tyrannus., 2019 University of Louisville
The Delphic Plague : A Study In Athenian Oracular Rejection As Evident In The Oedipus Tyrannus., Devin A Stephens
College of Arts & Sciences Senior Honors Theses
The purpose of this work is to determine the effects of the Plague of Athens on the socio-cultural and religious climate of Athens as revealed through Sophocles’ magnum opus the Oedipus Tyrannus. The focus is the problem of oracular decay as viewed by Sophocles due to the political discrepancies between Athens and Delphi of which the plague was the final catalyst. Sophocles in this work is then explored as a writer with sentiments of Delphic Apologism in the wake of the plague which acted as a catalyst for a near complete dissolution of religious customs and furthermore a negation of ...
More Than Mortal: Divine Depictions Of Livia In Early Imperial Portraiture And Literature, Lillian Waddill
Undergraduate Honors Theses
This thesis addresses the divine reception of Livia Drusilla (58 BCE – 29 CE), first empress of Rome, during and just after her lifetime throughout the Roman empire. Both an art historical and a literary approach reveal aspects of Livia’s divinity as understood by the people who lived under Julio-Claudian rule. The introduction to this thesis provides necessary historical context regarding the nascent imperial age and Livia’s position within it, especially as embodying what it meant to be a woman in the ruling family during a time that stressed traditional morality and dynasty. The first chapter serves as a ...
Ritual Impasse In Tragic Marriage: Sophocles' Deianeira, Euripides' Hermione, Euripides' Electra., 2019 The University of Western Ontario
Ritual Impasse In Tragic Marriage: Sophocles' Deianeira, Euripides' Hermione, Euripides' Electra., Valeria Logacheva
Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository
This thesis explores the ways in which the dynamics of marriage presented in Athenian tragedy of the fifth century BCE affect the portrayal of three tragic wives: Sophocles’ Deianeira, Euripides’ Hermione, and Euripides’ Electra. In modern scholarship, all three of these women have often been endowed with psychological portraits, which in turn have been used to explain their motivations and actions. Believing such an approach to be too subjective and anachronistic, I analyze instead the portrayal of tragic wives against the backdrop of contemporary Athenian institutions, in particular that of marriage. I argue that the problematic nature of their marriages ...

“I See” Said The Blind Man; “I Know” Said Oedipus: An Analysis Of Physical And Metaphysical Sight Through Greek Tragedy And Philosophy, 2019 Xavier University, Cincinnati, OH
“I See” Said The Blind Man; “I Know” Said Oedipus: An Analysis Of Physical And Metaphysical Sight Through Greek Tragedy And Philosophy, Emma Barlow
Honors Bachelor of Arts
Sight in the ancient world is best understood through Greek tragedy and philosophy. There is a certain duality of sight that is present in tragedy – physical and metaphysical. Physical sight is represented through “vision” and “sight” itself. Metaphysical sight is represented through “knowing” and “understanding”. Physical and metaphysical sight do not necessarily need each other, but the combination of the two results in higher wisdom, something that is sought by one of the most prominent figures in Greek tragedy, Oedipus. In fact, Oedipus Tyrannus, Heracles, and Prometheus Bound best exemplify the duality of sight in tragedy. The seers in Greek ...
Reevaluating The Nika Riot & Placing It In Conversation With The Antioch Riot Of 387, 2019 Xavier University, Cincinnati, OH
Reevaluating The Nika Riot & Placing It In Conversation With The Antioch Riot Of 387, Ty Richer
Honors Bachelor of Arts
The reign of the Byzantine emperor Justinian, from 527 to 565, despite its many high points and achievements, was a struggle for him and his people. One of his most famous, or infamous, challenges was during the Nika riots. During this time Justinian sees the people of Constantinople attempt to crown a usurper as emperor instead of him. As Justinian convened with his advisors, hiding from the mob in his palace, one question must have rung true in his mind: how did this happen? This presentation answers this question while also giving an overview to the time and the people ...
The Transactions Of Mortal Coil: Hellenic Meaning In The Suffering Of The Iliad And The Oresteia, 2019 Xavier University, Cincinnati, OH
The Transactions Of Mortal Coil: Hellenic Meaning In The Suffering Of The Iliad And The Oresteia, Stephen L. Bothwell
Honors Bachelor of Arts
The meaning of suffering is enigmatic. To grasp at it cosmologically, I examine both Archaic and Classical Greek views of suffering via their primary literature and culture. Homer’s Iliad reveals the transactionality of suffering as it is embedded in the heroic code through an analysis of the Glaucus-Diomedes exchange. An investigation of Achilles’ development portrays both the Homeric system that equates honor and suffering and the unquantifiable suffering that critiques said system. Meanwhile, a study of Aeschylus’ Oresteia exhibits the interrelation of suffering and learning in Zeus’ law. The progression of the trilogy displays an accruement of wisdom by ...
"This Great Theatre Of Nature": Henry Fielding And The Ancient Comic Stage, 2019 William & Mary
"This Great Theatre Of Nature": Henry Fielding And The Ancient Comic Stage, Stephen Ryan
Undergraduate Honors Theses
Henry Fielding’s concept of the “comic Epic-Poem in Prose” helped to establish Joseph Andrews and Tom Jones as foundational texts in the history of the novel in English, but scholars have largely overlooked the influence of Fielding’s deep knowledge of ancient Greek and Roman comedy on the development of the genre of the novel in Britain. By comparing the plays of Aristophanes, Plautus, and Terence with Fielding’s novels, it becomes clear that these ancient playwrights contributed to the slapstick style of humor, sharp satirical wit, and emphasis on reconciliation present throughout Joseph Andrews andTom Jones, and ...
