Reading the Middle Ages : an introduction to medieval literature by Theodore L Steinberg( Book )

7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: "Medieval literature is separated from us by so many centuries that it may seem completely foreign. It does, however, have much to say to 21st century readers and Steinberg's book demonstrates its continuing appeal.n This introduction to medieval literature provides some of the cultural context that readers need to know, such as the religious orientation of the people, and their beliefs about romance and sexuality." The first chapter summarizes medieval religious thought, cosmology and intellectual history. The remaining chapters introduce a number of individual works from Beowulf to Chaucer. The discussions include works by women writers and Jewish writers and a chapter on the medieval Japanese masterpiece The Tale of Genji

"Theodore L. Steinberg illuminates many aspects of medieval Jewish life, not as historical curiosities but as living history. He follows two major themes - the survival and accomplishment of Judaism in a world that became increasingly hostile, and the survival of rabbinic Judaism - but he also attempts to capture what life might have been like for Jewish men and women as they went about their ordinary activities."--Jacket

Literature, the humanities, and humanity by Theodore L Steinberg( )

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Literature, the Humanities, and Humanity attempts to make the study of literature more than simply another school subject that students have to take. At a time when all subjects seem to be valued only for their testability, this book tries to show the value of reading and studying literature, even earlier literature. It shows students, some of whom will themselves become teachers, that literature actually has something to say to them. Furthermore, it shows that literature is meant to be enjoyed, that, as the Roman poet Horace (and his Renaissance disciple Sir Philip Sidney) said, the functions of literature are to teach and to delight. The book will also be useful to teachers who want to convey their passion for literature to their students. After an introductory chapter that offers advice on how to read (and teach) literature, the book consists of a series of chapters that examine individual literary works ranging from The Iliad to Charles Dickens' Bleak House. These chapters can not substitute for reading the actual works. Rather they are intended to help students read those works. They are attempts to demystify the act of reading and to show that these works, whether they are nearly three thousand or less than two hundred years old, still have important things to say to contemporary readers." -- Provided by publisher
