A Queen’S Task: Violant De Bar And The Experience Of Royal Motherhood In Fourteenth-Century Aragón, Dawn Bratsch-Prince Jan 1998

A Queen’S Task: Violant De Bar And The Experience Of Royal Motherhood In Fourteenth-Century Aragón, Dawn Bratsch-Prince

World Languages and Cultures Publications

In a letter to Pere III dated 11 March 1381, the fifteen-year-old duchess of Gerona, Violant de Bar, joyously announces her first pregnancy: "notifich a Ia vostra senyoria per tal com se que n'haurets plaer que'm s6 feta prenys, e'm trob be ab lo prenyat, grades ne vajen a Deu" (ACA, reg. 1821, fol. 68<). 1 So begins her procreative trial as wife of the king's first-born son,Joan, heir to the powerful Crown of Aragon. Fifteen years later, we find King Joan dead without a legitimate male heir and the process of his brother Marti's succession in great confusion because, according to historian E.L. Miron,

Oregon Danish Colony: Ethnic Assimilation In Junction City, 1902-1952, Gerald Rasmussen, Otto Larsen Jan 1998

Oregon Danish Colony: Ethnic Assimilation In Junction City, 1902-1952, Gerald Rasmussen, Otto Larsen

The Bridge

"A most desired place for Danish folks to settle." That

keynote launched the campaign to attract Danes to Junction

City. Who was the herald? What were the tidings?

The records are not particularly informative about A. C.

Nielsen. The Junction City Times only used the initials "A. C."

to refer to him. According to his great-grandson, Alfred

Christensen, his first name was Andreas and his middle

name was Christian, both common names in Denmark.

The Psychology Of A Mermaid: Understanding The Danish Psyche, Karen Lassen

The Bridge

"Way out in the ocean, the water is as blue as the petals of

the most beautiful cornflower and as clear as the cleanest

glass, but it is very deep, deeper than an anchor cable can

reach; many church steeples would have to be placed one on

top of the other in order to stretch from the bottom up to the

surface of the water. Down there live the Merpeople."

Hans Christian Andersen's Statue In Lincoln Park, Chicago, Birgit F. Larsen Jan 1998

Hans Christian Andersen's Statue In Lincoln Park, Chicago, Birgit F. Larsen

The Bridge

I barely noticed that they placed me in a flag-draped automobile and that, accompanied by an escort, it progressed slowly down a wide avenue, while crowds of people on the sidewalks, children and adults, cheered enthusiastically. --We drove through a large park, many times larger than Kongens Have ("The King's Garden", a park in Copenhagen), and here, too, there were rows upon rows of people, and finally we stopped in front of a statue - and lo and behold, it was myself, and looked just like me, sitting with a young swan at my feet. -- Then my heart melted, then ...

Danebod: A Tradition Of Strength And Spirit, Ann Svendsen

The Bridge

The Danes have always expressed their joys by having

festivals. Fastelavns (Fest before Lent) is celebrated on

Shrove Tuesday . The Fifth of June, a traditional celebration,

remembers the day Denmark got its first constitution and

became a democracy. America's patriotism and freedom are

celebrated on the Fourth of July. The bounties of agriculture

are celebrated with the annual Harvest Festival. Christmas is

celebrated not only in the majesty and solemnity of a candlelight

church service but by dancing around a huge tree when

the children also recieve bags of candy, apples and nuts,

and gifts.

Primo Levi And Bruno Piazza: Auschwitz In Italian Literature, Ilona Klein

Faculty Publications

To focus on the literature of the Shoah more than 50 years later and 7,000 miles away inevitably creates some sense of dissociation due to both historical and geographic distance. While on the one hand, an analysis of the literature of the genocide might grant further insights through a retrospective look, on the other, however, this distance of time and space risks leading to an oversimplification of the Shoah, in the sense that the plight of the Jews, their individual stories and the overwhelming sense of emptiness caused by the depletion of the intellectual Jewish cultural communities in Europe ...
