Le Thème du Néant dans la Poésie de Stéphane Mallarmé

Hindsley, Donald Hugh 12 1900 (has links)
Stéphane Mallarmé, 1842-1897, was driven by a yearning for the ideal, and felt an immense despair when his human attempts to reach up to it, through his poetry, fell far too short. The void (le Néant) into which he fell is the subject of the present study. Sources used were the writer's poetry, as well as all critical works which seemed pertinent to the study of this poet whose symbolism is so wonderfully and yet frighteningly deep and meaningful.

Symbols in the novels of Ellen Glasgow

White, James January 1964 (has links)
Thesis (Ph.D.)--Boston University / PLEASE NOTE: Boston University Libraries did not receive an Authorization To Manage form for this thesis or dissertation. It is therefore not openly accessible, though it may be available by request. If you are the author or principal advisor of this work and would like to request open access for it, please contact us at open-help@bu.edu. Thank you. / This is a chronological study of the use of symbolism in all of the novels of Ellen Glasgow and also in the unpublished novella "Beyond Defeat," with special attention to the major works. In it, I have examined imagery, characters, actions, setting, style and form for symbolic significance, showing how these help establish or reinforce themes, create moods, or provide insight into the minds and emotions of the characters. Besides revealing that Miss Glasgow consciously employed symbolism throughout her writing career, this study also shows the continuing development of certain themes and certain related symbolic patterns. / 2031-01-01

Taste : a commentary on its genesis, nature and claims

Kokkoris, Panos January 1980 (has links)
Thesis (M. Arch.)--Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Dept. of Architecture, 1980. / MICROFICHE COPY AVAILABLE IN ARCHIVES AND ROTCH. / Includes bibliographical references. / In the first section, taste, along with parallel phenomena linked to form and symbolism in general, is discussed in relation to the fundamental device of the reason-feeling dichotomy . The dichotomy's internal possibilities of significance and basic ways in which these have at times affected aesthetics are traced. Examples are used which range from ancient Greek philosophy, via the 18th century, to Wittgenstein. The latter's gradual evolution from a position of unyielding separation of rational, valid knowledge from fantasy and the 'unspeakable', towards an increasingly unified view of language and conceptualization as phenomena rooted in wide social contexts, serves as the point leading into, as well as the basic-idea underlying, the second section. Accordingly, issues relevant to a 'game' notion of taste are brought forth, such as the continuity (as opposed to any clearcut and schematical division) of experience and of the processes of perception and conception; the idea of utility, convention as an indispensable means of obtaining knowability, conmunicability, and persistence of our mental constructions, either scientific, or aesthetic, or religious, etc.; prejudice, appearing as an ineluctable factor underlying our arguments; or, the phenomenon of aesthetic polarities, being the result of fundamental traits (or 'rules') of the 'game'. Juxtaposed to these issues is the theme of the autonomy of art and taste, chiefly as it was propounded by Kant. Genuine autonomy is disputed in the ends of the second and in the beginnings of the third section and it is by way of this disputation that the game notion is resumed. This time, in a more extended sense, i.e. as centering upon the search for order in the conceptions of nature. The implication of this for a commentary on the phenomenon of taste is that, whatever the techniques appropriated and the results sought, what ever the specific biases of art, form-giving, and form-appreciating at different times, a possibility of unification may be presented. That possibility results from considering the general ground of perception and conceptualization, i.e. the tendency to effect an ordering of experience whatsoever. However, by unification, nothing of the sort of a smoothly functioning though artificial and forced generalization is meant. On the contrary , what is implied is an attempt to visualize, in the sphere of formal systems, what Michel Foucault calls a "discursive unity." That is, a discourse unified not by virtue of any consistency or continuity 'reigning over it, but rather by virtue of clashes, contradictions , discontinuities, which may nevertheless have a common focus. In terms of form, conceptions of orderable nature are taken to formulate such a common locus of diverse formal systems, and the hypothesis is brought forth of a possibility of "discursive" unification of formal and aesthetic in compatibilities, on the grounds of subtle threads that link them with integral epistemologies or world-views. / by Panos Kokkoris. / M.Arch.
