But Nils Kant died during the 1960s. So who is the stranger seen wandering across the fields as darkness falls? It soon becomes clear that someone wants to stop Julia's search for the truth. And that he's much, much closer than she thinks . . .

In spite of the amount of literature on the relationship between the Dead Sea Scrolls and the New Testament, no consensus among the scholars has emerged as yet on how to explain both the similarities and the differences among the two corpora of religious writings. This volume contains a revised form of the contributions to an experts meeting held at the Catholic University of Leuven on December 2007 dedicated to explore the relationship among the two corpora and to understand both the commonalities and the differences between the two corpora from the perspective of the common ground from which both corpora have developed: the Hebrew Bible.

Unable to help him while he perished in a dirty alley, she joined the FBI in response to his senseless death.

While she investigates the new lead and Ravi’s betrayal, she and robotics expert Baxter Cruise travel to Mexico for answers. In the foreign country, her FBI badge is useless, and on both sides of the border, someone wants them dead. Meanwhile, Mexico’s national archaeological museum hires investigator Kurt Meyers (Dark Pool) to locate priceless pre-Columbian artifacts that went missing at the same time as Ravi’s murder. When another man leaves a trail of bodies in his quest to acquire the artifacts, Kurt searches for a connection between his case and the cold-case murder of a college student in Mazatlán.

Graveyard Poetry

Religion, Aesthetics and the Mid-Eighteenth-Century Poetic Condition

Author: Dr Eric Parisot

Publisher: Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.


Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 194

While immensely popular in the eighteenth century, current critical wisdom regards graveyard poetry as a short-lived fad with little lasting merit. In the first book-length study of this important poetic mode, Eric Parisot suggests, to the contrary, that graveyard poetry is closely connected to the mid-century aesthetic revision of poetics. Graveyard poetry's contribution to this paradigm shift, Parisot argues, stems from changing religious practices and their increasing reliance on printed material to facilitate private devotion by way of affective and subjective response. Coupling this perspective with graveyard poetry’s obsessive preoccupation with death and salvation makes visible its importance as an articulation or negotiation between contemporary religious concerns and emerging aesthetics of poetic practice. Parisot reads the poetry of Robert Blair, Edward Young and Thomas Gray, among others, as a series of poetic experiments that attempt to accommodate changing religious and reading practices and translate religious concerns into parallel reconsiderations of poetic authority, agency, death and afterlife. Making use of an impressive body of religious treatises, sermons and verse that ground his study in a precise historical moment, Parisot shows graveyard poetry's strong ties to seventeenth-century devotional texts, and most importantly, its influential role in the development of late eighteenth-century sentimentalism and Romanticism.
