In this monograph, the author has offered a reading of the main trends in classic (canonical) and modern Persian literature demonstrating the deep indigenous roots of “... More > Iranianity”- the Iranian national identity. He argues that, “Iranianity” was not invented in the context of the so-called “colonial modernization” of a peripheral country. Rather, Iranian national identity existed as a remembrance in the Persian literary tradition long before the formation of the modern nation-state of Iran in the early twentieth century. In reading the Persian literary texts, he has applied a post-structural literary theoretical framework, inspired by Michail Bakhtin, Roland Barthes, Julia Kristeva, Jacques Derrida, along with the writings of theorists such as Ernest Renan, Benedict Anderson and Étienne Balibar, to redefine Iran as a nation through history.< Less

This publication is a modern reprint of "Prinz Eugen im ersten Gefecht" (The First Battle of Prinz Eugen) which was originally published in 1943. This is one of many books... More > Korvettenkapitän Fritz Otto Busch wrote during his naval career (1912-1945) and in the post-war period (1945-1960). It deals with Bismarck's Atlantic sortie. The author served aboard the Prinz Eugen during Operation Rheinübung and was a direct witness of the battle of the Denmark Strait. Although a few viewpoints of the Third Reich are briefly cited (note that it was published in 1943!), the book is overall a classic which every sailor and lover of naval history can enjoy without being offended. It was written for young men, but old-timers will also be piped aboard “The Prince”. The style is wonderful and virtually allegorical in its description of the sea and the sky, and life and death on board of this legendary ship. This book is a true literary naval classic and an historical document that transcends times and political viewpoints.< Less

More > Гаврии́л (Гаври́ла) Рома́нович Держа́вин; IPA: [ɡɐˈvrilə rɐˈmanəvʲɪtɕ dʲɪrˈʐavʲɪn] ( listen); July 14, 1743 – July 20, 1816) was one of the most highly esteemed Russian poets before Alexander Pushkin, as well as a statesman. Although his works are traditionally considered literary classicism, his best verse is rich with antitheses and conflicting sounds in a way reminiscent of John Donne and other metaphysical poets.Derzhavin was born in Kazan. His distant ancestor Morza Bagrim, who relocated from the Great Horde in the 15th century to Moscow, was baptized and became a vassal of the Russian Grand Prince Vasily II. Nevertheless, by the 18th century Derzhavin's father was just a poor country squire who died when Gavrila was still young. Excerpt from: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gavrila_Derzhavin< Less
