  • Division and Combination in Complete Translation: A Case Study of the English Translation of Chinese Political Documents

    Author:Wei Guo, Yuchun Xu

    Abstract: Division and combination are the laws of the existence and development of the world.

  • Between the Prussian Tradition and the Napoleonic Way: On Kleist’s The Prince of Homburg and Prussian Military Reform

    Author:Minyue Shi, Yue Zeng

    Abstract: Heinrich von Kleist’s The Prince of Homburg was created in the context of the Napoleonic Wars. The military revolution in the early 19th century and the writer’s military knowledge constituted important elements in the construction of the play. By rewriting the Battle of Fehrbellin of 1675, Kleist interprets the conflict between the Prussian military tradition and the military principles of the Napoleonic era, thereby expressing the changes in the military culture of the era in a dramatic form. His text reflects the Prussian military reforms. The intertextual relationship between the text of The Prince of Homburg and the contemporary developments in military theory and military technology testifies to Kleist’s concern with military issues and the connection between his literary creation in the last years of his life and the Prussian military reforms.

Focusing on the health of the community, this paper first attempts to illustrate the significance of the doctor and his medical discourse in shaping social health in the early Victorian age, meanwhile presenting Martineau’s reference to ...
