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.

Ausgezeichnet mit dem Zeno-Karl-Schindler-Preis für deutsche Literaturwissenschaft 2016. Entwürfe alternativer Gemeinwesen sind bis heute mit dem Namen der utopischen Insel verbunden, die Thomas Morus vor 500 Jahren beschrieben hat. "Utopia" ist aber nicht nur eine politische, sondern auch eine literarische Erfindung. Dieser Doppelcharakter von politischem Gehalt und poetischer Form, der die Gattung Utopie kennzeichnet, steht in "Fiktion und Praxis" im Mittelpunkt der Untersuchung. Michael Dominik Hagel schreibt die Geschichte der Verknüpfung von Politik und Fiktion im Genre der Utopie vom Anfang des 16. bis zum Ende des 18. Jahrhunderts. Gegenstand der Analyse sind nicht nur berühmte Werke von Morus, Machiavelli, Campanella, Bacon, J. G. Schnabel, Mercier oder Wieland, sondern auch eine Vielzahl heute vergessener Texte und Bilder. "Fiktion und Praxis" erzählt die Wissensgeschichte der Utopie vor der wissenschaftlichen Erfindung der Gattung zwischen Staatswissenschaft und Ästhetik des 19. Jahrhunderts.

Von John Ruskin stammen die ersten Schreckensvisionen einer total industrialisierten Welt. Wolfgang Kemp zeichnet in seiner sorgfältig recherchierten Biographie das Leben dieses englischen Schriftstellers und Kunstphilosophen nach, der sich in einer Zeit einschneidender gesellschaftlicher Veränderungen von der reinen Betrachtung der Kunst und Natur abwandte und zu einem der schärfsten Kritiker des viktorianischen England wurde. (Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine frühere Ausgabe.)

Ihre Aufgabe ist sensibel, ihre Macht ist groß. Ein unbedachtes Wort kann weltweit Krisen auslösen und politische Erdbeben verursachen. Jedes Jahr im August treffen sich in Jackson Hole, Wyoming – fernab der Weltöffentlichkeit –, die vierzig wichtigsten Zentralbanker der Welt. Sie stehen in dauernden Interessenkonflikten zwischen nationalen Interessen und internationalem Druck. Neil Irwin erklärt spannend und anschaulich, was Zentralbanker tun und wie es zu massiven Fehlentscheidungen kommen kann. Er beschreibt, welche großen Auswirkungen kleine Unstimmigkeiten zwischen Jens Weidmann, Mario Draghi und Ben Bernanke haben können. Und er zeigt, wie die zukünftigen Herausforderungen, Allianzen und Strategien der Zentralbanker aussehen könnten.
