    Medieval literature
    Informative article by Radmila Milenkovic, taken from a book on history of Serbian

  • , a composition of the founder in the church of the Holy Virgin at the Patriarchate of Pec Written Serbian literature in the Middle Ages was a special literary system, in terms of typology, poetics and literary genres

  • When they began working on their own Slavic themes, they used only a more narrow aspect of this literature, those genres and that poetics with which the cult of the saints could be celebrated, because the first heroes of Slav literature were those responsible for Slav literacy and for standard language, Cyril and Methodius and their Slav disciples, whom the young Slavonic church considered to be saints

  • Thus, the ritual genres are: hagiographies, homiletics, and hymnography, or according to their Slavic names: zitije (vita), pohvala (eulogy), sluzbe (church services)

  • Everything which was created originally in written Serbian literature remained in that system: within the context of ritual genres - extra-ritual subject matter, all new themes were created within the system created for religious use

  • Through this system of literary genres, it was not possible to express individual human feelings or secular themes, so the genres of oral poetry, lyric and epic, along with oral narration, stories and legends all supplemented the system of written genres

    Doing Military Ethics with War Literature
    Article by Robert Bonadonno presented at JSCOPE 99, arguing for the importance
    of lierary narrative in forming a practical appreciation of military virtue.

  • It is time for me now to focus on the genre of war literature, the type of literature with which I propose to 'do' ethics

  • But Homer’s influence on the genre has probably been the greatest

  • Another check on language's usefulness in ethical terms that is particularly applicable to the genre of war literature is the complex, divided, one might almost say inverse relationship between language and maleness (alluded to by writers as diverse as linguist Carol Gilligan, philosopher Steven Smith, and literary and cultural critic Peter Middleton)

    Part two: heroic fantasy.

  • Flynn The term heroic fantasy, most commonly attributed to Lin Carter who first coined the phrase, refers to a sub-genre of fantastic literature which chronicles the tales of heroes and their conquests in imaginary lands.10 Heroic fantasy emphasizes the conflict between good and evil, and often casts a reluctant protagonist (human or hobbit) in the role of champion

  • While the roots of heroic fantasy can be traced back thousands of years to Homer, Ovid or Virgil, most critics agree that the sub-genre began in the late nineteenth century

  • Other writers in Weird Tales followed Lovecraft's lead, and invented the new sub-genre, which would be later termed Sword & Sorcery by Fritz Leiber, 12 that preserved magic, the occult, and all the trappings of the lost worlds' story by removing them to remote moments in time

  • Howard was the first and most prolific contributor to Weird Tales to enter this new realm, introducing a host of heroic figures from King Kull and Bran Mak Morn to Solomon Kane and Cormac Mac Art; but his most influential figure on the genre was Conan the Barbarian

  • Tolkien first entered Middle-Earth with the simple children's fantasy The Hobbit (published in 1937), but his return to that richly imagined world meant a turn from the blood-and-thunder of Howard and his contemporaries back to the purity of vision that once established the genre
