La lettre et l’esprit – entre langue et culture : Études à la mémoire de Jean Breuillard
This is a collection of articles in memory of Jean Breuillard, professor, dean of the Slavonic Studies Department at the Paris-Sorbonne university.
The article is dedicated to direct translations into Slavonic from Syriac.
This is a collection of essays dedicated to Prof. Helmut Keipert, a famous German slavist, professor emeritus of the University of Bonn; the articles were written on the occasion of his seventieth birthday. The general object of study of the international body of scholars is the history of Slavonic literary languages and Slavonic literary texts. This particular volume unites articles on language contacts and interconnection between Slavonic and non-Slavonic literary traditions.
The present paper focuses on the obscure evidence of the Tale of Bygone Years: according to the Chronicle in 1024 a Varangian prince, named Yakun, lost (lit. ‘fled from’) his gold-woven robe at the end of the Listven’ battle. In order to clarify this fragment parallels from the Old Norse King sagas are drawn, allowing not only to identify this historical character, but also to explain the meaning of his action. Apparently, we have here another valuable testimony of Scandinavian-East Slavonic cultural contacts from the 11th century.
The article is dedicated to one of the earliest witness of the veneration of St. Helena and St. Constantine among the Slavs as attested by liturgical sources.
The paper is focused on the study of reaction of italian literature critics on the publication of the Boris Pasternak's novel "Doctor Jivago". The analysys of the book ""Doctor Jivago", Pasternak, 1958, Italy" (published in Russian language in "Reka vremen", 2012, in Moscow) is given. The papers of italian writers, critics and historians of literature, who reacted immediately upon the publication of the novel (A. Moravia, I. Calvino, F.Fortini, C. Cassola, C. Salinari ecc.) are studied and analised.
In the article the patterns of the realization of emotional utterances in dialogic and monologic speech are described. The author pays special attention to the characteristic features of the speech of a speaker feeling psychic tension and to the compositional-pragmatic peculiarities of dialogic and monologic text.
