Podrobný popis:

Publikace: ADONIS TO ZORRO: Oxford Dictionary of Reference and Allusion (Third Edition) - DELAHUNTY, A.;DIGNEN, S.. An absorbing dictionary that clearly explains the meanings of

references and allusions that are likely to be encountered in

modern English. Drawing on the resources of the Oxford English

Corpus, illustrative examples are provided for almost every entry.

Fully cross-referenced and with a thematic index, it is ideal for

browsing or quick reference. Allusions form a colourful extension

to the English language, drawing on our collective knowledge of

literature, mythology, and the Bible to give us a literary

shorthand for describing people, places, and events. So a cunning

crook is an Artful Dodger, a daydreamer is like Billy Liar, a

powerful woman is a modern-day Amazon - we can suffer like

Sisyphus, fail like Canute, or linger like the smile of the

Cheshire Cat. This absorbing and accessible A-Z explains the

meanings of allusions in modern English, from Adonis to Zorro,

Tartarus to Tarzan, and Rubens to Rambo. Fascinating to browse

through, the book is based on an extensive reading programme that

has identified the most commonly-used allusions. For the third

edition all entries have been reviewed, revised, and thoroughly

updated to ensure the consistency of coverage of allusions and

references. New to this edition is the inclusion within each entry

of a short summary definition for the allusion or reference, ideal

for quick reference, and at least one illustrative citation from a

wide range of source materials in almost every entry: from Aldous

Huxley to Philip Roth, Emily Bronte to The Guardian Unlimited. A

useful thematic index allows searching for allusions related to a

specific topic, e.g. at Intelligence find Aristotle, Einstein, and

Spock, and at Hair find Medusa, Samson, and Shirley Temple. Oxford

Dictionary of Reference and Allusion is both a useful and

user-friendly reference work for students of English Literature and

Language, as well as for non-native English speakers for aid with

unusual references, and an absorbing volume for all lovers of

literature and culture in general. Publikace: ADONIS TO ZORRO: Oxford Dictionary of Reference and Allusion (Third Edition) - DELAHUNTY, A.;DIGNEN, S.. Druhé vydání literárního slovníku
