    Hungary and Poland: The Two Antemurales in the Late Fifteenth Century

    No full text
    The aim of this article is to analyze and confront the two conceptions—Polish and Hungarian—of Antemurale Christianitatis developed in the late fifteenth century. It is based, in the first part, on the published correspondence between King Matthias Corvinus of Hungary (1458–90) and Pope Sixtus IV (1471–84). These documents are interesting because they allow us to follow the duplicity of the policies practised by Matthias. Taking advantage of his involvement in the struggle against the Turks, the Hungarian king sought to attain other goals. The second part of the article is based on the political works of an Italian humanist living in Poland, Philippus Buonaccorsi, called Callimachus. I compare the attitudes of two then-hostile kingdoms, which earlier (in the time of Władysław Warneńczyk, d. 1444) and later (in the time of Władysław Jagiellończyk, d. 1516, and his son Ludwik, d. 1526) were connected by personal union and dynastic ties, respectively, towards the problem of Antemurale.Cet article se donne pour fin d’analyser et de confronter les deux conceptions – polonaise et hongroise – de l’Antemurale Christianitatis développées à la fin du XVe siècle. Il se base, dans la première partie, sur la correspondance publiée entre le roi Matthias Corvinus de Hongrie (1458-90) et le pape Sixte IV (1471-84). Ces documents sont intéressants, car ils nous permettent de suivre la duplicité des politiques pratiquées par Matthias. Profitant de son implication dans la lutte contre les Turcs, le roi hongrois cherchait à atteindre d’autres buts. La deuxième partie de l’article s’appuie sur les travaux politiques d’un humaniste italien vivant en Pologne, Philippus Buonaccorsi, dit Callimaque. Nous comparons l’attitude de deux royaumes alors ennemis, qui furent plus tôt (à l’époque de Władysław Warneńczyk, décédé en 1444) et demeurèrent plus tard (à l’époque de Władysław Jagiellończyk, décédé en 1516, et de son fils Ludwik, décédé en 1526) liés par une union personnelle et des liens dynastiques respectivement, face au problème de l’Antemurale

    From King Lear to King James: The Problem of Ocularcentrism in Early Modern England

    No full text
    The present article explores how William Shakespeare’s King Lear thoughtfully challenges the primacy of sight among the senses, with implications for our understanding of the play’s relationship both to its immediate political context and to the history of ocularcentrism in early modern England. Adopting a new historicist approach, this article claims that writing King Lear in the midst of heated debates on the Anglo-Scottish Union was both a reaction to any possible ocularcentric behaviour by King James and a part of active criticism against the ocularcentrism of the period. Regardless of his personal opinion on James’s plan for the Union, Shakespeare was worried that the king would act according to his ocularcentric understanding of the two countries under his rule. Therefore, King Lear can be read as an advance warning to King James, who needs to be wary of superficial, sight-centred behaviours so as not to suffer the same fate as Lear.Cette étude explore comment Le Roi Lear de William Shakespeare remet judicieusement en question la primauté de la vue parmi les sens, ce qui a des implications pour notre compréhension de la relation que cette pièce entretient à la fois avec son contexte politique immédiat et avec l’histoire de l’oculocentrisme dans l’Angleterre de la première modernité. Adoptant une approche empruntée au « New Historicism », cette étude soutient que l’écriture du Roi Lear, en plein débat sur l’Union anglo-écossaise, fut à la fois une réaction aux éventuels comportements oculocentriques du roi Jacques Ier et une véritable critique de l’oculocentrisme de l’époque. Indépendamment de son opinion sur le plan de Jacques Ier pour l’Union, Shakespeare craignait qu’il n’agisse selon sa compréhension oculaire des deux pays sous son autorité. Par conséquent, Le Roi Lear peut être lu comme un avertissement au roi Jacques Ier de se méfier des comportements superficiels centrés sur la vue afin d’éviter de subir le même sort que Lear

    Animals and Emotions in Medieval German Literature: The Various Functions of Bestial Imagery in the Staging of Emotions

    No full text
    This article, which continues ideas developed in the context of the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft: Graduiertenkolleg 1876—215342465 (GRK1876), examines how animals are used in medieval texts to (re)present, shape, and develop the literary representation of emotions. On the basis of selected examples, it shows how diverse the literary functions of animal imagery can be and how many different poetic and aesthetic strategies can be found for staging animals, connecting them with human characters and the recipientsof the tale. In this way, animals can serve as objects of cultural self-reflection and as models for philosophical orientation. bySandra HofertFriedrich-Alexander-University [email protected]
