The Expression of the Inexpressible in Eugenio Montale's Poetry

Metaphor, Negation, and Silence

The Expression of the Inexpressible in Eugenio Montale's Poetry

This book locates the greatest Italian poet of the twentieth century, Eugenio Montale, firmly within European Modernism. It shows that he, like many writers of this period, was fascinated with the problems of language and expression. The book's main focus is the intriguing relationship between the word and what lies beyond the word.

Inexpressible

Hesed and the Mystery of God's Lovingkindness

Inexpressible

God's identity cannot be fully expressed in human words, but Scripture uses one particular Hebrew word to describe God's character: hesed. Often translated as lovingkindness, covenant faithfulness, or steadfast love, Michael Card unpacks the many dimensions of hesed, exploring how it is used in the Old Testament to reveal God's character and how its fullness is ultimately embodied in the incarnation of Jesus.

Expressing the Inexpressible in Lyotard and Pseudo-Dionysius

Bearing Witness as Spiritual Exercise

Expressing the Inexpressible in Lyotard and Pseudo-Dionysius

Rigorously studying the inexpressible expression provoked by the silenced testimony of the Holocaust survivor, in Jean-François Lyotard’s The Differend, and the religious faithful, in Pseudo-Dionysius’ The Divine Names, proves to dissolve the apparent heterogeneity of postmodernism and Neoplatonist Christian mysticism and open radical new lines of dialogue. Expressing the Inexpressible critically evaluates each thinker and tradition, rethinks witnessing, testimony, sublimity, and apophaticism, and then engages them together to forge a new reading of silence and eros.

Inexpressible Privacy

The Interior Life of Antebellum American Literature

Inexpressible Privacy

Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2006 Few concepts are more widely discussed or more passionately invoked in American public culture than that of privacy. What these discussions have lacked, however, is a historically informed sense of privacy's genealogy in U.S. culture. Now, Milette Shamir traces this peculiarly American obsession back to the middle decades of the nineteenth century, when our modern understanding of privacy took hold. Shamir explores how various discourses, as well as changes in the built environment, worked in tandem to seal, regulate, and sanctify private spaces, both domestic and subjective. She offers revelatory readings of texts by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Frederick Douglass, Herman Melville, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Henry David Thoreau, and other, less familiar antebellum writers and looks to a wide array of sources, including architectural blueprints for private homes, legal cases in which a "right to privacy" supplements and exceeds property rights, examples of political rhetoric vaunting the sacred inviolability of personal privacy, and conduct manuals prescribing new codes of behavior to protect against intrusion.

Expressing the Inexpressible

Volume 2 follows the same format and general scheme of Volume 1. Once, again, there are four sections. In "Work" I explore how my experience in the workplace is an authentic expression of my life's work. In the second section the poems express that dissonance begets "Harmony". I have come to believe that life's path is a "Labyrinth" walk and the third section investigates that perspective. Finally, in "Have-to", the fourth section, the poems examine Freedom, Obedience and Gratitude. I
