James VI of Scotland and I of England participated in the literary culture of the Renaissance--not only as a monarch and patron but as an author in his own right. As the first monograph devoted to James as an author, this book offers a fresh perspective on his reigns in Scotland and England, and the interrelationship of authorship and authority, literature, and politics in the Renaissance. The book combines research into the preparation, material form, and circulation of these varied writings with theoretically informed consideration of the relationship between authors, texts, and readers. The discussion explores James's responses to a range of literary, political, and religious debates and reveals the development of his aims and concerns as an author.

Authorship is a complicated subject in Kierkegaard's work, which he surely recognized, given his late attempts to explain himself in On My Work as an Author. From the use of multiple pseudonyms and antonyms, to contributions across a spectrum of media and genres, issues of authorship abound. Why did Kierkegaard write in the ways he did? Before we assess Kierkegaard's famous thoughts on faith or love, or the relationship between 'the aesthetic,' 'the ethical,' and 'the religious,' we must approach how he expressed them. Given the multi-authored nature of his works, can we find a view or voice that is definitively Kierkegaard's own? Can entries in his unpublished journals and notebooks tell us what Kierkegaard himself thought? How should contemporary readers understand inconsistencies or contradictions between differently named authors? We cannot make definitive claims about Kierkegaard's work as a thinker without understanding Kierkegaard's work as an author. This collection, by leading contemporary Kierkegaard scholars, is the first to systematically examine the divisive question and practice of authorship in Kierkegaard from philosophical, literary and theological perspectives.

Pretexts of Authority describes the Renaissance rhetoric of authorship and authority by examining the textual locus where this rhetoric appears in its most concentrated and complex form - the preface. In the process, it shows how the notion of authorship changed in a shift of systems of authorization during the Renaissance, a shift that coincides with the roots of the modern public sphere and with the change from religion to science and the public good as the intellectual court of appeal for legitimizing authorship. The author focuses on prefatory materials to kinds of texts that most fully exemplify the problem of self-authorization during the Renaissance. First, he examines Protestant prefaces, notably Luther's preface to his collected works and Milton's antiprelatical tracts. These works stand at the center of a rhetorical crisis; having abrogated the authority of the Catholic church through an appeal to the conscience of the individual, reformers found it necessary to forge a persona that could authorize their discourse without implying an authorizing will independent of God's. At the same time, these texts must attempt to close off means of authorization to potentially proliferating imitators. The second group of prefaces the author examines is to scientific works, notably those of Francis Bacon and Rene Descartes, who faced problems analogous to those of the Protestant reformers in their attempts to set aside Aristotelian authority without seeming to establish a personal authority that interrupts the transparent, impersonal discourse of scientific inquiry. The book argues that in both sets of texts the rhetorical quandary can be resolved only through recourse to the nascent notion of common sense, which allows an author to garner authority from an assumed bond with the audience. Authors no longer need to posit a privileged and suspect relation with the "master texts of Scripture" and the "Book of Nature," but can instead assume the mutual intelligibility of their text. This assumption is seen as the cause of the decline of the full-blown prefatory practice of the Renaissance.

Defining Authorship Debating Authenticity

This volume explores the themes of authorship and authenticity – and connected issues – from the Classical Antiquity to the Renaissance. Its reflection is constructed within a threefold framework. A first section includes topics dealing with dubious or uncertain attribution of ancient works, homonymous writers, and problems regarding the reliability of compilation literature. The middle section goes through several issues concerning authorship: the balance between the author’s contribution to their own work and the role of collaborators, pupils, circles, reviewers, scribes, and even older sources, but also the influence of different compositional stages on the concept of ‘author’, and the challenges presented by anonymous texts. Finally, a third crucial section on authenticity and forgeries concludes the book: it contains contributions dealing with spurious works – or sections of works – , mechanisms of interpolation, misattribution, and deliberate forgery. The aim of the book is therefore to exemplify the many nuances of the complex problems of authenticity and authorship of ancient texts.

Excerpt from The Hellenica Oxyrhynchia: Its Authorship and Authority Since the delivery of these lectures, two further cone tributions to the literature of the controversy have come to hand. The first of these is the first half of a paper by Professor L. Pareti, of Florence, entitled Cratippo e le Elleniche oli Owyrhynchos, which appeared in vol. Xix of the Studz' italiani di Filologz'a 01003873c He comes to the conclusion that Cratippus was an Athenian, who wrote in the first half of the fourth century that P. Wrote between 371 and 356, that he began in the Decelean War at least, and that his work was not a mere continuation of Thucydides. The starting-point of the é'rog 6'y8oov he puts in the autumn of 403. He accepts the current assumptions as to the scale and method of Ephorus, and he subscribes to the objections which have been urged against theopompus. Both the general results at which he arrives, and the arguments by which these results are reached, do not appear to differ materially from the results and the arguments of my article in Klio.

This volume on anthropology and authority in the writings of Søren Kierkegaard (1813-1855) offers its reader nineteen timely discussions of two fundamental categories pertaining to the literary, philosophical, and theological production of this prominent 19th century Danish thinker, whose vast influence upon 20th century intellectual life continues to grow as the new millennium approaches. The volume's nineteen contributors - from Canada, Denmark, Great Britain, Holland, Hungary, Italy, and the United States - inquire into such complex problematics in Kierkegaard's oeuvre as the interrelationship between the human, the divine, and the spiritual; between the secular and the Christian; between human and Christian love; between state and church institutions and the single individual of faith; and between this individual's concern for quality in civic and religious life and the quantitative forces of modern society's masses and crowds. Special attention is given to the indisputable authority of God, Christ, and the apostles as opposed to the debatable authority, or non-authority, of the author. Of particular interest is the nexus between Kierkegaard's existential and religious concerns, on the one hand, and his intricate textual conceptions, multifarious poetic strategies, and various means of pseudonymous and indirect communication, on the other. Between the covers of Anthropology and Authority some chapters seek to refine received knowledge of Kierkegaard in such disciplines as theology and moral philosophy. Conversely, other chapters submit rather postmodern critiques of the author's stylistic and rhetorical devices. A summary assessment of the nineteen contributions would fail to recognize this considerable methodological and theoretical diversity. Instead, the reader's access to the smorgasbord of insights has been facilitated by an introduction in which one of the American editors briefly outline the individual contributions on a general historical and intellectual background. Altogether, the probing insights of Anthropology and Authority go to the core of Søren Kierkegaard's authorship. Individual chapters either update previous responses to the many challenges presented by this work, or the chapters face new challenges and/or present critical challenges on their own.

Questions of Authority

This book studies the questions of authority and authorship in William Shakespeare’s problematic masterpiece Hamlet. It argues that the Bard seeks to eternalize himself through his play, that Hamlet dramatizes the authorial quest for sempiternity. As the epigraph to this book indicates, authors have since the age of the pyramids – and probably before it – sought to live forever. Shakespeare was no exception. However, his medium, that of theatre, is usually associated with the present. This book approaches the strategies of authorial survival from a perspective that is theoretically and historically eclectic. It is, therefore, informed by works that belong to different eras and that are not separated by time alone. They are brought together by the theme of sempiternity. The challenging task of dealing with such a theme is made even more arduous by the nature of the play itself. Hamlet denies its readers the satisfaction they crave. In this play, Keats’ negative capability is a luxury that no one can afford, be they critics or characters. In Hamlet, the answer is always with the author who comes in questionable shapes, assuring everyone that he has more to tell. His authority does not hinder the endless proliferation of meaning, however, but, rather, guarantees it.
