Labelled "an elegant Jeremiah" by a journalist of his day, the urbane Victorian Matthew Arnold must have received the comparison with the Old Testament prophet uneasily. Writing in the 1970s, Norman Mailer seems to owe nothing to the biblical for his description of a long hot wait to buy a cold drink while reporting on the first voyage to the moon. Yet both Arnold and Mailer, George P. Landow asserts in this book, are sages, writers in the nonfiction prose form of secular prophecy, a genre richly influenced by the episodic structures and harshly critical attitudes toward society which characterize Old Testament prophetic literature. In this book, first published in 1986, Landow defines the genre by exploring its rhetoric, an approach that enables him to illuminate the relationships among representative works of the nineteenth century to one another, to biblical, oratorical, and homiletic traditions, and to such twentieth-century writers as Lawrence, Didion, and Mailer.

What is 'style', and how does it relate to thought in language? It has often been treated as something merely linguistic, independent of thought, ornamental; stylishness for its own sake. Or else it has been said to subserve thought, by mimicking, delineating, or heightening ideas that are already expressed in the words. This ambitious and timely book explores a third, more radical possibility in which style operates as a verbal mode of thinking through. Rather than figure thought as primary and pre-verbal, and language as a secondary delivery system, style is conceived here as having the capacity to clarify or generate thinking. The book's generic focus is on non-fiction prose, and it looks across the long nineteenth century. Leading scholars survey twenty authors to show where writers who have gained reputations as either 'stylists' or as 'thinkers' exploit the interplay between 'the what' and 'the how' of their prose. The study demonstrates how celebrated stylists might, after all, have thoughts worth attending to, and that distinguished thinkers might be enriched for us if we paid more due to their style. More than reversing the conventional categories, this innovative volume shows how 'style' and 'thinking' can be approached as a shared concern. At a moment when, especially in nineteenth-century studies, interest in style is re-emerging, this book revaluates some of the most influential figures of that age, re-imagining the possible alliances, interplays, and generative tensions between thinking, thinkers, style, and stylists.

Medievalism, the later reception of the Middle Ages, has been used by many writers, not just during the Victorian period but from the Renaissance to the present, as a means of commenting on their own societies and systems of values. Until recently, this self-interest was used to distinguish between Medievalism, a selective, often romanticised, view of the past, and medieval studies, with its quest for an authentic Middle Ages. The essays in this collection suggest that the search for knowledge of a "real" Middle Ages has always been a problematic one, and that the vitality of the vision of Medievalism is demonstrated by its constant adaption to current concerns.

Κίνητρο της συγγραφής του Θουκυδίδη υπήρξε η διακρίβωση της ιστορικής αλήθειας και η παράδοση στις κατοπινές γενιές ιστορικών γεγονότων που συνέβησαν αλλά και θα συμβαίνουν όμοια ή παραπλήσια στο μέλλον, λόγω του αμετάβλητου της ανθρώπινης φύσης. Στην Ιστορία του Πελοποννησιακού πολέμου, ο μεγάλος αρχαίος Έλληνας ιστορικός αφηγείται τα γεγονότα του Πελοποννησιακού πολέμου, ανάμεσα στην Αθηναϊκή και Πελοποννησιακή Συμμαχία υπό την ηγεμονία της Σπάρτης (431-404 π.Χ.). Ο Θουκυδίδης συμμετείχε στον πόλεμο και το 424 εκλέχθηκε στρατηγός με αποστολή την προστασία των αθηναϊκών κτήσεων σε Χαλκιδική και Θράκη. Τότε ο Σπαρτιάτης στρατηγός Βρασίδας επιτέθηκε στην Αμφίπολη, προσέφερε ευνοϊκούς όρους παράδοσης στους κατοίκους της και πέτυχε τον απόλυτο έλεγχο. Ο Θουκυδίδης θεωρήθηκε υπεύθυνος για την απώλεια της Αμφίπολης και δεν επέστρεψε στην Αθήνα. Στο διάστημα αυτό της πολιτικής απραξίας έγινε ο μεγάλος ιστορικός του Πελοποννησιακού πολέμου. Ο πολιτικός άνδρας Ελευθέριος Βενιζέλος μετά την υπογραφή της Συνθήκης των Σεβρών, χάνει στις εκλογές και δεν εκλέγεται ούτε βουλευτής. Παίρνει την απόφαση, λοιπόν, να μην επιστρέψει στην Αθήνα, όπως είχε κάνει και ο Θουκυδίδης παλαιότερα, και στο διάστημα αυτό είναι που καταπιάνεται με τη μετάφραση της Ιστορίας του αρχαίου ιστορικού. Έχει νιώσει βαθιά το μεγάλο δίδαγμα του εθνικού διχασμού, θύματα του οποίου υπήρξαν και οι δύο σε διαφορετικές ιστορικές στιγμές. Η φιλολογική προσέγγιση του ερασιτέχνη Εθνάρχη αποτελεί ένα ξεχωριστό κεφάλαιο στην Ελληνική Ιστορία.
