This volume examines the teaching of Jewishness within the context of medieval England. It covers a wide array of academic disciplines and addresses a multitude of primary sources, including medieval English manuscripts, law codes, philosophy, art, and literature, in explicating how the Jew-as-Other was formed. Chapters are devoted to the teaching of the complexities of medieval Jewish experiences in the modern classroom. Jews in Medieval England: Teaching Representations of the Other also grounds medieval conceptions of the Other within the contemporary world where we continue to confront the problematic attitudes directed toward alleged social outcasts.

Essay from the year 2014 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 65.0, University of Sheffield, course: English Literature, language: English, abstract: ‘Mutability’ employs traditional conventions of the Lyric poem as it is “brief and discontinuous, emphasising sound and pictorial imagery rather than narrative”, in order to present the concept of life as ephemeral. Shelley is a poet shaped by the sense “that there are narrow limits to what human beings can know with certainty.” ‘Mutability’ reflects this notion as Shelley undermines human importance within a world in which nothing is constant. In his ‘A Defence of Poetry’ he argues that for man to be “greatly good...the pains and pleasures of his species must become his own” and therefore this essay shall consider the way Shelley uses ‘Mutability’ in order to educate readers on humanities fleeting and irrelevant nature.
