Francis X. Newman - Editor

The papers will offer the reader an opportunity to determine the meaning of the concept of courtly love in critical discussion, to judge its importance in understanding medieval literature, and to see the range of opinion on the subject.

Amphibians of Malawi
Amphibians of Malawi (June 1967)
Margaret M. Stewart - Author

A handbook for the herpetologist—professional, student, or amateur—anxious to acquaint himself with African Amphibia. The geographic location and climatic variety of Malawi make it possible for this small country to support a large number of frogs and toads, many of them representative of much of sub-Sahara Africa. This book contributes greatly to the relatively sparse literature on African Amphibia.

Development of Modern Indonesian Poetry
Development of Modern Indonesian Poetry (June 1967)
Burton Raffel - Editor/translator

Indonesian poetry, like the country and also the language, is basically a product of this century. Only in the twentieth century have the people of this vast archipelago begun to achieve a unified cultural identity and national spirit; only since 1928 has the possibility, and by now the reality, of a common language been realized; and only since World War II have Indonesians achieved nationhood. Yet Indonesia has already produced a highly individua...(Read More)
Martin Fierro
Martin Fierro (June 1967)
Jose Hernandez - Author
Frank G. Carrino - Editor
Alberto Carlos - Editor
Catherine E. Ward - Translator

“The two poems which, together, are popularly known as the Martín Fierro form what is often regarded as the greatest single Spanish American work in creative literature. Appropriately, it draws from Spain the language and verse forms which have long been the vehicle of improvisation, the didactic folk wisdom of old Spanish proverbs, the Spanish interest in law whether formally codified in the fueros and the Siete P...(Read More)

Most Uncommon Jacksonians (June 1967)
The Radical Leaders of the Early Labor Movement
Edward Pessen - Author

The age of Jackson saw the beginnings of America's labor movement in the emergence both of trade unions and of the Working Men's political parties. The leadership of this movement was one of its most outstanding and fascinating features. These radical leaders were “uncommon Jacksonians” in that they stood apart from both main currents of their day—the optimistic pursuit of material gain, and the moralistic criticism of that ...(Read More)
Muslim Studies, Vol. 1
Muslim Studies, Vol. 1 (June 1967)
Ignac Goldziher - Author

This is the first volume of Goldziher’s Muslim Studies, which ranks highly among the classics of the scholarly literature on Islam. Indeed, the two volumes, originally published in German in 1889–1890, can justly be counted among those which laid the foundations of the modern study of Islam as a religion and a civilization. The first study deals with the reaction of Islam to the ideals of Arab tribal society, to the attitu...(Read More)

Ralph Earl, Recorder for an Era
Ralph Earl, Recorder for an Era (June 1967)
Laurence B. Goodrich - Author

Here at long last is the study of the life and paintings of Ralph Earl, the colorful eighteenth-century American artist whose pictures hang in the great galleries but about whom relatively little has appeared in print. A pioneer landscapist in a day when portraiture was the vogue, a Tory in Revolutionary New England, he nevertheless captured the stance and spirit of the new nation in the first decades after the Revolution. He portrayed the m...(Read More)
Nineteenth-Century Houses in Western New York
Nineteenth-Century Houses in Western New York (June 1966)
Jewel H. Conover - Author

The author confesses that she became interested in doing this pictorial study just because she likes nineteenth century architecture. And for this very reason she has composed a scholarly appreciation, rather than a cumbersome technical analysis, that all can read with enjoyment, whatever one's acquaintance with the formal study of architecture. In the introductory chapters she recounts the history of the region and the economic and social back...(Read More)
Problems and Policies of Malesherbes as Directeur de la Librarie in France (1750-1763)
Problems and Policies of Malesherbes as Directeur de la Librarie in France (1750-1763) (June 1966)
Edward P. Shaw - Author

Chrétien-Guillaume de Malesherbes was director of the book trade and chief of the royal censors during the tumultuous formative period of the esprit philsophique in eighteenth-century France. As such, no single bureaucrat wielded more personal influence on the professional careers of authors and booksellers, on the progress of letters or the dissemination of knowledge in pre-revolutionary France, than this enlightened aristocra...(Read More)
