Abstract:

This volume presents a ground-breaking collection of essays inspired by the
work of linguist, anthropologist and poet Paul Friedrich. The core of this
collection is the dramatic and creative connection between language and
culture: linguaculture. Each essay relates language at its most technical
to culture in its most intangible forms. The work represented here is
based upon long-term immersion in multiple dimensions of culture, from the
hallowed interiors of intellectual life to everyday encounters and
observations. Balance between these two perspectives - objective and
analytical systematicity on the one hand and human affect and individuality
on the other - unify these works. Another specific bond is a hallmark of
Paul Friedrich's method: a faithfully microscopic eye for detail
combined with a panoramic vision of the cultural context as a whole.
In keeping with Paul Friedrich's intellectual legacy, this collection is
not grounded in, nor contained by, any single academic discipline. It is,
rather, informed by a sensibility to the complex and multilayered interplay
of the domains of human thought, perception and activity that we
conventionally label "language" and "culture." Among the contributors to
this volume are specialists in comparative literature, Slavic studies and
Classics; poets, translators, literary critics, a professional singer and
an avant-garde painter.
