Philologica wratislaviensia; from grammar to discourse; v.4


Nearly all narratives present and examine images of beauty. Even those which present ugliness may also have beauty with which the reader can compare the ugliness, or the ugly object can conceal a hidden beauty. These thirteen essays examine the faces and masks of ugliness in literary narratives, including Shakespeare's Caliban, Merrick's innocence of ugliness, Lawrence's monstrosity of Th. aged, the particular brand of Australian ugliness in Patrick White's writing, ugliness in Boydes, post-colonial rule and stetting Irish ugliness, Indian captivity, Swinburne and the subject matter of ugliness, Hawthorne on the debate of evil, and the Antichrist, the ultimate in ugliness, in seventeenth century literature.
