Marie de France (fl. late twelfth century) is the earliest known French woman poet and her lais - stories in verse based on Breton tales of chivalry and romance - are among the finest of the genre. Recounting the trials and tribulations of lovers, the lais inhabit a powerfully realized world where very real human protagonists act out their lives against fairy-tale elements of magical beings, potions and beasts. De France takes a subtle and complex view of courtly love, whether telling the story of the knight who betrays his fairy mistress or describing the noblewoman who embroiders her sad tale on the shroud for a nightingale killed by a jealous and suspicious husband.

In der bisherigen Forschung ist wiederholt die Frage aufgeworfen worden, ob die Paradiesgefilde des Ódáinsakr und der Glæsisvellir der mittelalterlichen isländischen Mythologie auf keltische Einflüsse zurückgehen, und wie genau diese Einflüsse zu fassen und sozial und historisch einzuordnen sind. Um diese Fragen zu beantworten, arbeitet das Buch die nordischen Zeugnisse vollständig auf; neben literarischen werden dabei auch folkloristische Quellen und archäologische Befunde berücksichtigt. Nach der Analyse dieses Materials wendet sich die Studie dem keltischen Vergleichsmaterial zu: der arthurischen Literatur, der irischen Literatur und antiken keltischen Zeugnissen. Die vergleichende Analyse dieses breit gestreuten Materials zeigt, dass der Ódáinsakr/Glæsisvellir-Komplex in der Tat von keltischen Überlieferungen nicht zu trennen ist. Die unmittelbare Quelle für die zugrundeliegenden Einflüsse ist dabei wohl nicht in der arthurischen Literatur oder gar der keltischen Antike, sondern in der volkssprachlichen Überlieferung des wikingerzeitlichen Irland zu suchen. Von dort scheint der Motivkomplex während der Landnahmezeit nach Island gelangt zu sein.

Translation has been a crucial process in world culture over the past two millennia and more. In the English-speaking cultures many of the most important texts are translations, from Homer to Beckett, the Bible to Freud. Although recent years have seen a boom in translation studies, there has been no comprehensive yet convenient guide to this essential element of literature in English. Written by eminent scholars from many countries, the Oxford Guide to Literature in English Translation meets this need and will be essential reading for all students of English and comparative literature. It highlights the place of translation in our culture, encouraging awareness of the issues raised, making the translator more visible. Concentrating on major writers and works, it covers translations out of many languages, from Greek to Korean, from Swahili to Russian. For some works (e.g. Virgil's Aeneid) which have been much translated, the discussion is historical and critical, showing how translation has evolved over the centuries and bringing out the differences between versions. Elsewhere, with less familiar literatures, the Guide examines the extent to which translation has done justice to the range of work available. The Guide is divided into two parts. Part I contains substantial essays on theoretical questions, a pioneering outline of the history of translation into English, and discussions of the problems raised by specific types of text (e.g. poetry, oralliterature). The second, much longer, part consists of entries grouped by language of origin; some are devoted to individual texts (e.g. the Thousand and One Nights) or writers (e.g. Ibsen, Proust), but the majority offer a critical overview of a genre (e.g. Chinese poetry, Spanish Golden Age drama) or of a national literature (e.g. Hungarian, Scottish Gaelic). There is a selective bibliography for each entry and an index of authors and translators.

Wie die meisten literarischen Werke des französischen Aufklärers Denis Diderot konnte auch dieser philosophische Dialogroman über das Herr-Knecht-Verhältnis erst nach dem Tod des Autors erscheinen: Während einer nicht näher beschriebenen Reise unterhalten sich der Diener Jacques und sein adliger Herr. Beide verkörpern diametral entgegengesetzte Geisteshaltungen. Während der agile und interessierte Diener ein Fatalist ist, der sein Lebenschicksal als von Gott vorgezeichnet akzeptiert, glaubt ausgerechnet sein träger und gelangweilter Herr an die Freiheit des Willens, nutzt sie aber aus Desinteresse nicht.
