The Spanish Ballad in the Golden Age (Hardcover): Nigel Griffin, Clive Griffin, Eric Southworth Colin Thompson The Spanish Ballad in the Golden Age (Hardcover)

Collections of traditional Spanish ballads were made in the early seventeenth century; some recorded directly from singers, others reworked by educated poets. So popular were these that Court poets composed ballads of their own. Most Spanish poetry of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries circulated in manuscript among a small coterie of wits and fellow poets, and it often contains references to contemporary events and people, sideswipes at institutions and individuals, and allusions to other writings of the time. The modern reader has to know about the people and events criticized and lampooned, and everything from municipal by-laws to contemporary painting can prove helpful. The traditional popular associations of the ballad also led to many poets combining in their poems the language of the street alongside that of polite society and the schoolroom. This volume discusses some of the problems encountered by anglophone students and teachers of literature when they turn to the Golden-Age ballad and offers informed guidance on how such poems might be read. The nine poems discussed have been chosen with such difficulties in mind and a strophe-by-strophe prose translation is provided for each, followed by a detailed critical analysis. Edited by NIGEL GRIFFIN, CLIVE GRIFFIN, ERIC SOUTHWORTH and COLIN THOMPSON, all of Oxford University. OTHER CONTRIBUTORS: Oliver Noble-Wood, John Rutherford, Ronald Truman.

This volume contains essays on key aspects of cultural, religious, and intellectual life in early modern Spain. Some of the contributions address predominantly historical issues: the reform of the Mercedarian Order; Europe and the Turks in Spanish literature; and the subtleties and intrigues of a propaganda campaign against the Imperial ambassador to the Vatican, Don Diego Hurtado de Mendoza. Others focus on the relationship between art and society: the nature of Spanish Tacitism; the choices made by the Jeronymite friars charged with buying books for the Escorial Library and planning its decoration; reformist politics under the Olivares rA(c)gime as portrayed in works by Ruiz de AlarcA3n; and the development of Sceptical philosophy in Spain. In addition, there are studies of Lazarillo de Tormes, SA de Miranda, GraciAn, and CalderA3n, and two essays on the dissemination of Spanish culture in Oxford, one on the earliest copies of Don Quixote purchased for the Bodleian Library, and the other on the first teacher of Spanish in the University.Contributors: BRUCE TAYLOR, JEREMY LAWRANCE, THOMAS F. EARLE, D.G. PATTISON, JOHN RUTHERFORD, CHARLES J. DAVIS, COLIN THOMPSON, IAN MICHAEL, JULES WHICKER, JEREMY ROBBINS, ROBERT PRING-MILL, M.J. WOODS, JOHN EDWARDS.

One of the greatest lyrical poets in Spanish of any age, St John of the Cross (1542-1591) enjoys an authoritative status as a theologian and teacher of the mystical road to union with God. St John of the Cross covers all his works, both poetry and prose, citing the original Spanish and providing English translations throughout. Its focus is firmly on the language through which he seeks to express the inexpressible and the theological insights he brings to the mystical way.

Nothing and nobody is safe in this third collection of hysterically funny poetry. WARNING: only read this book if you have a sense of humour
There's something really nasty on the bottom of my shoe
It's making me feel sick. Can't you smell it too?
I don't know what it is, but it smells much worse than poo.
COLIN THOMPSON'S hilarious poems are wonderfully matched by illustrator PETER VISKA's zany illustrations. They team up again on "My Brother Drinks Out of the Toilet and other poems" and "The Dog's Just Been Sick in the Honda and other poems."
