George Eliot’s Spiritual Quest in Silas Marner

Based on K. Barth’s definition of faith and R. Bultmann’s existentialist theology, J. H. Mazaheri has attempted to reveal G. Eliot’s profound religious and spiritual quest by focusing on the short but powerful novel, Silas Marner. The critic believes that her thought in the area of religion and theology has not been appreciated enough by critics, and that a postmodern reading is necessary in order to understand it. So, through a close textual reading, the author shows not only the affinities G. Eliot had with Coleridge and Wordworth, already mentioned by others, but also with Schleiermacher and Kierkegaard. The novelist clearly distinguishes between religion and superstition: if she st...

This volume gathers contributions from the International Workshop on Operator Theory and Its Applications (IWOTA) held in Bangalore, India, in December 2013. All articles were written by experts and cover a broad range of original material at the cutting edge of operator theory and its applications. Topics include multivariable operator theory, operator theory on indefinite metric spaces (Krein and Pontryagin spaces) and its applications, spectral theory with applications to differential operators, the geometry of Banach spaces, scattering and time varying linear systems, and wavelets and coherent states.

Octave Mirbeau's Literary and Intellectual Evolution as a French Writer, 1880-1914

This work shows how the literary and political ideas of Mirbeau generated a vision of reality foreshadowing Modernity. Through Mirbeau's descriptions of the effects of technological, scientific developments of the day and the temporal and spatial implications of such developments on the literary process, coupled with his advocacy of a radical political ideology to expose the inadequacies of social democracy, it covers the relationship between literature and politics, showing how innovation in the creative process provides a reflective framework for the expression of political difference.

Biopolymers for Food Design

Biopolymers for Food Design, Volume 20 in the Handbook of Bioengineering series, describes how biopolymers have made a major impact in the food industry, from food design, to food control and safety. Biopolymers can be used in the development of novel nutritional alternatives, to replace difficult to obtain food products, or for foods inaccessible or inappropriate for a particular population (i.e. allergic to specific components). In addition, some polymers can be used as functional ingredients, and can also represent efficient scaffolds for food ingredients with therapeutic values. This valuable reference is ideal for those looking for new solutions for the food industry. Presents common biopolymers and their applications in food bioengineering, from food design, to control and safety Identifies how the use of certain biopolymers can result in faster production time and reduced costs Includes cutting-edge technologies used in research for food design and other food-related applications Discusses the use of biopolymers in food packaging, shelf-life extension, and the creation of novel food products

This study describes the ideas and works of women, mostly poets, who all had links to Marguerite d'Angouleme. Anne Malet de Graville was lady in waiting at the court of Claude de France, and made adaptations of two old texts. The Lyonnese school produced poets. Jeanne de Jussie, a Catholic nun, was driven out of Switzerland to a convent in Annecy, France, where she became abbess. She wrote a book wherein she described the horror of the persecution. Marie Dentiere was a former abbess who abandoned her Catholic faith and wrote two books showing her as a strong defender of women. Camille de Morel belonged to an illustrious French family, and wrote poetry in Latin. This study provides biographies and studies of the surviving works of these women writers.

Translation of 3 Plays by Lucette Desvignes

This volume makes these plays accessible to contemporary scholars, dramatists, directors and students, to be read, discussed and performed. Eurydice, Eurydice is a classical allegory in a modern setting, addressing the theme of loss and recovery within contemporary society. Strange Encounters is reputed to be the first play in France to use onstage the cinematographic technique of flashback to create a play within a play. In Marsyas, Desvignes combines tragic discourse with musical interlude to achieve dramatic catharsis, representing the struggle of humanity against forces that would diminish individuality, creativity and freedom.
