Salvator Rosa in French Literature
Salvator Rosa (1615--1673) was a colorful and controversial Italian painter, talented musician, a notable comic actor, a prolific correspondent, and a successful satirist and poet. His paintings, especially his rugged landscapes and their evocation of the sublime, appealed to Romantic writers, and his work was highly influential on several generations of European writers. James S. Patty analyzes Rosa's tremendous influence on French writers, chiefly those of the nineteenth century, such as Stendhal, Honoré de Balzac, Victor Hugo, George Sand, and Théophile Gautier. Arranged in chronological order, with numerous quotations from French fiction, poetry, drama, art criticism, art history, literary history, and reference works, Salvator Rosa in French Literature forms a narrative account of the reception of Rosa's life and work in the world of French letters.
The Races of Man and Their Geographical Distribution
This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1863 edition. Excerpt: ...missionaries to convert Eastern Africa." Notices of Eastern Africa have been found, of a date anterior to the time of the Caliphs, and particularly, I believe, an account by Arrian, which I have not consulted. With respect to " Agizymba, the most distant country known to Ptolemy," I have been struck with the similarity of the wordto"Kissimkazy," " Kissimbany," and other local names which occur in the island of Zanzibar. The " Cazembe," a shadowy personage who figures in some Portuguese accounts of the interior of East Africa, may also have a connexion with the same island. The city of Zanzibar does not present any striking variation from other Arab towns, unless in the greater number of Negroes. There seemed, however, to be more than the usual proportion of ancient Hebrew and ancient Egyptian customs. Amulets, composed of a variety df&Klcuif strung together, are tied around the heads of infants; and a Soahili at once recognised the purpose of an ancient Egyptian amulet which I happened to have in my possession. Independently of the regular slave trade, child-stealing is practised hy adventurers from the outer coast of Arabia, and on much the same footing as formerly, according to Homer's description, by the Phoenicians. The visitor will again be reminded of early Greece, in the attitude and costume of various individuals walking with spears; and some particulars in the construction of these weapons will be found to correspond with the Mosaic regulations. One article of Zanzibar manufacture is exported in great quantities to the Arab countries--the shallow earthen water-jars, which in their general shape approach the Feejeean. Since the recent introduction of profitable articles of cultivation, slavery in Zanzibar has assumed a form more...
