Seminar paper from the year 2015 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1.3, University of Bonn (Institut für Anglistik, Amerikanistik und Keltologie), course: Victorian Literature an Culture, language: English, abstract: This paper deals with the use of different spaces in the two Victorian Gothic stories "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" and compares important places, houses and their meaning for the respective plots. Besides the city of London, which is the common overall setting of both novels and will be discussed in chapter 3, the paper focuses on the house as a traditional space for Gothic fiction and one of the elements that both texts have in common. Preliminarily, the character and meaning of the literal and metaphorical threshold will be made a subject of discussion.A story's setting is an important factor for each literary work. Together with the story time it provides on the one hand a framework for the plot, on the other hand the space around which characters can move more or less freely throughout the story. Literal spaces represent the interaction of different factors, that all characterize the space: among these of course typical place descriptions like nature or architecture of buildings, but also abstract concepts like the weather, light and darkness or countless sensory impressions that a special place can offer, and of course life - human and non-human - that colonizes the space. Literary spaces, however, do not only function as places for actions and happenings but are functionalized in different ways. One purpose of space, that is especially important for Gothic fiction, is to set the mood of the story, which also implies to capture the fears and issues of the respective time and use them to create a certain atmosphere around the plot. During the Victorian era, issues like sciences, especially psychology and the human psyche, were omnipresent. But also urbanisation and thus the metropolis and what may hide in the jungle of houses and streets aroused the fear of many Victorians. Due to this fact, and because of its demography and its great socio-political issues, London is a perfect and likewise popular setting for Victorian Gothic stories. Also Oscar Wilde and a few years later Robert Louis Stevenson chose the metropolis for their Gothic novels "The Picture of Dorian Gray" and "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde".

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 2,3, Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn (Englisches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Proseminar - Lord Byron, 13 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Gegenstand dieser Arbeit wird die Entwicklung der Naturphilosophie von George Gordon Lord Byron und Giacomo Leopardi sein. Es werden aus der Lektüre einiger ihrer Werke die Grundzüge der Evolution ihres Verhältnisses zur Natur aufgezeigt. Dabei kann man in beiden Dichtern drei verschiedene Phasen in ihrer Naturbetrachtung erkennen: Byrons Gedankenentwicklung geht von einer traditionellen pantheistischen Naturbetrachtung aus und entwickelt sich zu einer materialistischen, bis hin zu einer deistischen Weltanschauung. Der sogenannte leopardianische Pessimismus führt auf radikale Weise vor allem Leopardis tragische und degenerierende Beziehung zur Natur auf und geht von einem persönlichen zu einem historischen, bis hin zu einem kosmischen Pessimismus. Zur jeweiligen Phase beider Dichter werden Auszüge aus Beispieltexten hinzugenommen und kommentiert, die ihr Denken in der jeweiligen Phase widerspiegeln können. Die zu diesem Zwecke ausgesuchten Texte Byrons1sind ausChilde Harold's Pilgrimage, Don Juan, Darkness, Cain, Manfredund 'The Prayer of Nature'2,während die Leopardis vor allem aus der SammlungCantiundOperette morali3wie 'Il passero solitario', 'Alla luna', 'L'infinito', 'Ultimo canto di Saffo', 'Canto notturno di un pastore errante dell'Asia', 'A Silvia' und 'Dialogo della Natura e di un Islandese' sind. Zu den jeweiligen italienischen Texten werden jeweils deutsche Übersetzungen4in den Fussnoten angegeben. Ziel der Arbeit ist es, einen Vergleich beider Dichter hinsichtlich ihrer Naturbetrachtung anzustellen, wobei die Unterschiede und Ähnlichkeiten angesprochen und hervorgehoben werden. Zum Schluss der Arbeit werden Reflexionsversuche über eine mögliche verlorene Einheit des Menschen mit der Natur angestellt.

Description: In the conflicted world that is today's Episcopal Church, the diocese of Pittsburgh stands both as a symbol of dissent and schism to the liberal majority within the American Church and as a beacon of light and hope to conservative Anglicans across the United States. Set in the unlikely surroundings of America's Rust Belt, Pittsburgh's Episcopalians have over the past half century undergone a dramatic reordering of priorities to embrace a novel--though hardly unprecedented--vision of Anglican confessionalism. Called out of Darkness into Marvelous Light traces the development of an Anglican presence in western Pennsylvania from the missionary activity of the late eighteenth century through the triumphs of post-Civil War Anglo-Catholicism and the first stirrings of the Social Gospel, to the unprecedented religious revival of the 1950s. Championed by such men as Bishop Austin Pardue and Samuel Moor Shoemaker, the founder of the Pittsburgh Experiment, a prayer-centered spirituality developed in the Pittsburgh diocese and brought a generation of active evangelicals to the region during the 1960s and 1970s. The founding of Trinity Episcopal School for Ministry in the mid-1970s consolidated the evangelical presence in the diocese and provoked a commitment to spiritual renewal that sat uneasily with many in the wider Episcopal Church. Grounded in local research, this study seeks to explore the process by which Pittsburgh acquired its present evangelical identity and to reveal the increasingly intricate web of relationships that it now enjoys beyond America's borders. Endorsements: ''Called Out of Darkness Into Marvelous Light is a scholarly, accessible, and timely history of one of the most important forces in the present Reformation of Anglicanism and, in turn, of contemporary Western Christianity. Dr. Bonner examines the factors contributing to the realization of Dr. Sam Shoemaker's vision (that someday Pittsburgh would be ''as famous for God as for Steel'') in the context of 250 years of Anglican witness in Western Pennsylvania. This book has relevance far beyond the ministry and mission of the particular Christian community it chronicles.'' --The Right Reverend Robert Duncan, Bishop of Pittsburgh; Archbishop-Designate of the Anglican Church in North America. ''Jeremy Bonner presents a detailed, thoughtful, and even-handed account of the history of the Diocese of Pittsburgh, now central to struggles over Anglican identity and authority. Bonner's work combines the satisfying weight of local history with the thought-provoking breadth of national and global implications. This is a fascinating and rewarding read for those seeking to understand the history of the 'culture wars' within the Episcopal Church.'' --The Reverend Miranda K. Hassett, author of Anglican Communion in Crisis: How Episcopal Dissidents and Their Anglican Allies Are Reshaping Anglicanism ''In recent years when I have mentioned that I am from the Diocese of Pittsburgh some have responded by giving me a hug while others have (literally!) turned their backs and walked away. What has made even the mention of this diocese so polarizing? Jeremy Bonner's detailed but readable study of the 250-year history of Anglicanism in western Pennsylvania sheds light on this surprisingly important epicenter in the modern story of Christianity in America and Anglicanism worldwide. Most local histories are relevant and interesting to those who call that place home. This volume should be read much more widely, as this particular local place has become a focal point both for tremendous conflict and renewal.'' --Grant LeMarquand, Trinity School for Ministry About the Contributor(s): Jeremy Bonn
