‘Men, who forgetting they were born of women, nourished of women, and if they were not of the means of women, they would be quite extinguished out of the world, and a final end of them all; do like vipers deface the wombs wherein they were bred.’ Emilia Bassano, ‘To the Vertuous Reader’ In 1611 Emilia Bassano penned these words to her ‘Vertuous Reader’, as part of a volume of radical, feminist and subversive poetry. It was one of the first published collections of poetry written by a woman in England. The little we know of Emilia Bassano is restricted to the possibility that she may have been the ‘Dark Lady’ of Shakespeare’s Sonnets – and the rest of Her Story has been erased by History. Commissioned specifically for Shakespeare’s Globe, and with an all-female cast, this world premiere will reveal the life of Emilia: poet, mother and feminist. This time, the focus will be on this exceptional woman who managed to outlive all the men the history books tethered her to.

The documentation of young children's learning plays a vital role in the pre-schools of Reggio Emilia. This leading edge approach to bringing record-keeping and assessment into the heart of young children's learning is envied and emulated by educators around the world. The fully revised 2nd edition of An Encounter with Reggio Emilia is based upon a documentary approach to children’s learning successfully implemented by Stirling Council in Scotland, whose pre-school educators experienced dramatic improvements in their understandings about young children, how they learn and the potential unleashed in successfully engaging families in the learning process. This approach, which is based on careful listening to children and observation of their interests and concerns, centres around recording and commentating on children's learning through photos, wall displays, videos and a variety of different media. The authors include chapters on • Why early years educators should use documentation as a means to enhance young children’s learning • The values, principles and theories that underlie the ‘Reggio’ approach • How to implement documentations into any early years setting, with real-life case studies and hints for avoiding common pitfalls • How to involve, inspire and enthuse familiar and the wider community. This text is an important read for any individual working with young children or interested in the using ‘The Reggio Inspired Approach’ in their early years settings

Giovanni Boccaccio

New York, Bern, Berlin, Bruxelles, Frankfurt/M., Oxford, Wien, 2002. Currents in Comparative Romance Languages and Literatures. Vol. 116 General Editors: Tamara Alvarez-Detrell and Michael G. Paulson The first epic poem written in Italian is the Teseida delle nozze di Emilia (Theseid of the Nuptials of Emilia) by Giovanni Boccaccio, the well-known author of the Decameron. Conceived and composed during the Florentine author's stay in Naples, it combines masterfully both epic and lyric themes in a genre that may be defined as an epic of love. Besides its intrinsic literary value, the poem reflects the author's youthful emotions and nostalgia for the happiest times of his life.

Early Education, internationally, is the focus of much challenge and debate. Various approaches to teaching young children are being developed and advocated, but the focus is often on curriculum content with the processes of learning as a secondary issue. The most important consideration in early education is the way in which young children learn. Their transferable skills of communication, collaboration and investigation can underpin all aspects of learning. These elements form the main focus of work in a group of pre-schools in an area of Northern Italy which has earned an international reputation for innovative practice and pedagogy. The experience of Reggio Emilia, in providing challenges to accepted approaches to early childhood education in many countries, is widely acknowledged. Since 1963, when the Italian municipality of Reggio Emilia began setting up its network of educational services for 0-6 year olds, the 'Reggio Approach' has gained worldwide recognition. Numerous visitors have been impressed by the acknowledgement given to the potential of children, the organisation and quality of the environments created, the promotion of collegiality and a climate of co-participation of families in the educational project. This book reflects the impressions and experiences of the Reggio Emilia approach gained by a range of early childhood educators following a study visit to the region. It focusses on key issues such as staffing, training, working with parents, play, learning, the culture of early childhood, and special educational needs, from a variety of perspectives and will provide a welcome challenge to thinking for both practitioners and policy makers.

This striking example of Malaguzzi's work and philosophy-in-practice has not previously been available to the scholarly community or to the public interested in the history of the Reggio Emilia educational experience. Its round-table discussions and dialogues reveal valuable insights into the ways young children can be encouraged towards cooperative learning experiences, with implications far beyond the particular curriculum at hand. The editors' commitment to progressive education and to the rights and potential of all children worldwide has led them to share this rich record of the experience, so that current readers and those yet to come can glimpse the brilliant minds at work during this era (1990), and as it were, "listen in" on the fascinating discussions that were held on the topic of "cooperation."

Loris Malaguzzi was one of the most important figures in 20th century early childhood education, achieving world-wide recognition for his educational ideas and his role in the creation of municipal schools for young children in the Italian city of Reggio Emilia, the most successful example ever of progressive, democratic and public education. Despite Malaguzzi’s reputation, very little of what he wrote or said about early childhood education has been available in English. This book helps fill the gap, presenting for the first time in English, writings and speeches spanning 1945 to 1993, selected by a group of his colleagues from an archive established in Reggio Emilia. They range from short poems, letters and newspaper articles to extended pieces about Malaguzzi’s early life, the origins of the municipal schools and his ideas about children, pedagogy and schools. This material is organised into five chronological chapters, starting at the end of World War Two and ending just before his death, with introductions to each chapter providing background, including the historical context, the main events in Malaguzzi’s life and the rationale for the selection of documents. The book provides a unique insight into the background, thinking and work of Malaguzzi, revealing, in his own words, how his thinking developed, how he moved between theory and practice, how he border-crossed many disciplines and subjects, and how he combined many roles ranging from administrator and campaigner to researcher and pedagogue. Academics, students and practitioners alike will find this landmark publication provides rich insights into his life and work.

Frank Hasenstab

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Neuere Deutsche Literatur, Note: 1,00, Universität zu Köln (Institut für Deutsche Sprache und Literatur), Veranstaltung: Aufklärung/Sturm und Drang, 20 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Dass Lessings Emilia Galotti in Goethes Die Leiden des jungen Werthers auftaucht, hat zu vielfältigen Interpretationsansätzen geführt. Sie reichen von der Unterstellung völliger Arbitrarität (z. B. bei Paulin) bis zum Versuch, das Werk Emilia Galotti mithilfe seiner Verwendung im Werther besser zu verstehen (wie bei Appelbaum Graham). Im Folgenden sollen verschiedene Deutungsansätze an der Schnittstelle der beiden Texte zusammengeführt werden: an den Toden der beiden Protagonisten. Die Schnittstelle ist eine doppelte: Es werden ähnliche Handlungen ausgeführt, die beiden Stellen entsprechen einander im Handlungsablauf, außerdem wird Lessings Stück im Werther in genau diesem Moment der Handlung erwähnt. Es soll gezeigt werden, wie die beiden Selbsttötungen sich in verschiedenen Kontexten und dort zueinander Verhalten. Sich dabei absolut auf die Tode zu beschränken ist aber kaum durchzuhalten und wäre wohl auch nicht sinnvoll. Das Trauerspiel Emilia Galotti wird weniger als zwei Jahre nach der Uraufführung in Goethes Roman eingebracht. Goethe bezieht sich also auf ein sehr aktuelles Werk. In der späteren Fassung des Werther von 1787 handelt es sich um einen Bezug auf ein 15 Jahre altes Werk. Wie sich das Verhältnis der beiden Tode zueinander von der 1774er Fassung zu der von 1787 verändert, ist vielleicht ein weiteres interessantes Thema. Diese Arbeit beschränkt sich auf den Werther von 1774. Ein wichtiger Schwerpunkt ist nämlich das Verhältnis der ausgewählten Handlungselemente zu zeitgenössischen Ansichten. Daher wird ein Vergleich der beiden zeitnah veröffentlichten Werke vorgezogen. Spätere Strömungen sollen nicht berücksichtigt werden. Viele der verwendeten Sekundärquellen beziehen sich zwar mehr oder weniger explizit auf die 1787er Fassung, aber sind auf die ältere anwendbar. Weitgehend vernachlässigt werden soll hier auch die rein literaturgeschichtliche Seite der beiden Tode, da diese weniger problematisch erscheint. Wie Paulin erwähnt, war nicht einmal Mendelssohn - obgleich später ein heftiger Kritiker des Werther- bereit, den Bühnenselbstmord abzulehnen, da das Theater seine eigene Moralität habe. Auf der Ebene der analytischen Betrachtung wird im Folgenden die Bezeichnung ‚Selbsttötung’ verwendet: „Als ‚Selbstmord’ wird Selbsttötung verurteilt, als ‚Freitod’ emphatisch proklamiert, als ‚Suizid’ pathologisiert; und im Begriff ‚Selbsttötung’ erscheint Wertneutralität als Wert.“
