Comme le Département des Littératures réunit de nombreux secteurs allant des études classiques aux littératures québécoises et canadiennes en passant par les littératures française, anglaise, allemande, hispanique, le théâtre et le cinéma, il va de soi que la revue a couvert dès le départ le champ de la littérature générale et s’est voulue ouverte à l’interdisciplinarité

Oxford Bibliographies: Renaissance and Reformation

New eresource: Oxford Bibliographies: Renaissance and Reformation

Access is now available to the Renaissance and Reformation in the Oxford Bibliographies Online series via this link.

The period of the Renaissance and Reformation, which spans roughly from the 14th through 17th centuries, is rich in history and culture.  The field of Renaissance and Reformation studies, which has a critical importance for the understanding of Western culture, can best be approached through a combination of several disciplines including history, the arts, and literature.  As such, it is constantly responding to the emergence of new interpretations and ideas for scholars to consider.  Besides the extensive scholarship which already exists, much of the most recent work has moved online so that today’s students and researchers have ready access to primary source texts and a range of other electronic resources.

Oxford Bibliographies Renaissance and Reformation is designed to provide authoritative guidance. In contrast to print bibliographies and electronic indexes that simply list citations, this innovative online reference tool will combine the best features of a high-level encyclopedia and the best features of a traditional bibliography put together in a style that responds to the way people do research online.

 Hence we reverse the World, and yet do find
The God that made can hardly please our Mind.
We live by chance, and slip into Events;
Have all of Beasts except their Innocence.
The Soul, which no man’s pow’r can reach, a thing
That makes each Woman Man, each Man a King,
Doth so much lose, and from its height so fall,
That some contend to have no Soul at all.
‘Tis either not observ’d, or at the best
By Passion fought withall, by Sin deprest.
Freedom of Will (God’s Image) is forgot;
And, if we know it, we improve it not.
Our Thoughts, though nothing can be more our own,
Are still unguided, very seldom known.
Time ‘scapes our hands as Water in a Sieve,
We come to die e’re we begin to live.
Truth, the most sutable and noble prize,
Food of our Spirits, yet neglected lies.
