📒Grendel And His Mother ✍ Nicholas E. Brink
✏Grendel and His Mother Book Summary : One cause of the behavioral, emotional and mental torment in a person's life is the psychological trauma that results from the actions and words of parents and others. This volume, "Grendel and His Mother: Healing the Traumas of Childhood Through Dreams, Imagery and Hypnosis" by Nicholas E. Brink examines the effect of such trauma on a child's development and how the resulting torment eventually brings this child as an adult to psychotherapy. This trauma may be as subtle as a parental sigh of disappointment or as direct as physical or sexual abuse. Six clients are then led on a journeying through the unconscious mind using dream work, hypnosis and imagery in the course of therapy to uncover and heal these traumas to free the client of torment.
📒Hero Ego In Search Of Self ✍ Judy Anne White
✏Hero ego in Search of Self Book Summary : In "Hero-Ego in Search of Self," Judy Anne White offers a perceptive explanation for continued interest in the Anglo-Saxon poem "Beowulf." Building upon the earlier work of Jeffery Helterman and John Miles Foley, she argues that the sum of all confrontations between hero and monster in Beowulf equals the process of individual psychological development identified by Carl Jung as individuation. Dr. White's study proposes that the hero's struggle is the universal struggle towards self-knowledge - and that "Beowulf" thus resonates for the contemporary reader as it did for the poet's original audience.

📒Klaeber S Beowulf And The Fight At Finnsburg ✍ Robert Dennis Fulk
✏Klaeber s Beowulf and The Fight at Finnsburg Book Summary : Frederick Klaeber's Beowulf has long been the standard edition for study by students and advanced scholars alike. Its wide-ranging coverage of scholarship, its comprehensive philological aids, and its exceptionally thorough notes and glossary have ensured its continued use in spite of the fact that the book has remained largely unaltered since 1936. The fourth edition has been prepared with the aim of updating the scholarship while preserving the aspects of Klaeber's work that have made it useful to students of literature, linguists, historians, folklorists, manuscript specialists, archaeologists, and theorists of culture. A revised Introduction and Commentary incorporates the vast store of scholarship on Beowulf that has appeared since 1950. It brings readers up to date on areas of scholarship that have been controversial since the last edition, including the construction of the unique manuscript and views on the poem's date and unity of composition. The lightly revised text incorporates the best textual criticism of the intervening years, and the expanded Commentary furnishes detailed bibliographic guidance to discussion of textual cruces, as well as to modern and contemporary critical concerns. Aids to pronunciation have been added to the text, and advances in the study of the poem's language are addressed throughout. Readers will find that the book remains recognizably Klaeber's work, but with altered and added features designed to render it as useful today as it has ever been.
📒Beowulf And The Celtic Tradition ✍ Martin Puhvel
✏Beowulf and the Celtic Tradition Book Summary : The author traces and evaluates the possible influences of Celtic tradition on the Anglo-Saxon epic poem Beowulf. He discusses theories of the origins of the poem, draws parallels between elements in Beowulf and in Celtic literary tradition, and suggests that the central plot of the poem, the conflict with Grendel and his mother, is "fundamentally indebted to Celtic folktale elements." The study is well documented and rich in references to Celtic literature, legend, and folklore.
📒Defining Neomedievalism S ✍ Karl Fugelso
✏Defining Neomedievalism s Book Summary : The focus on neomedievalism at the 2007 International Conference on Medievalism, in ever more sessions at the annual International Congress on Medieval Studies, and by many recent or forthcoming publications, has left little doubt that this important new area of study is here to stay, and that medievalism must come to terms with it. In response to an essay in Studies in Medievalism XVIII defining medievalism in relationship to neomedievalism, this volume therefore begins with seven essays defining neomedievalism in relationship to medievalism. The conclusions reached in these seven essays are then tested by five articles on modern American manifestations of Byzantine art, the Vietnam War as refracted through non-heterosexual implications in the 1976 movie Robin and Marian, versions of abjection in recent Beowulf films, nationalist motives for Victorian portrayals of Chaucer, and nationalist reactions to twentieth-century scholarship on Chaucer's work. Theory and practice are thereby juxtaposed in a volume that is certain to fuel a central debate in not one but two of the fastest growing areas of academia.
