Example text

Archaism: The literary use of words and expressions that have become obsolete in the common speech of an era. Spenser in The Faerie Queene (1590–96) deliberately employed archaisms (many of them derived from Chaucer’s medieval English) in order to achieve a poetic style appropriate to his revival of the medieval chivalric romance. The translators of the King James Version of the Bible (1611) gave weight, dignity, and sonority to their prose by a sustained use of archaic revivals. Both Spenser and the King James Bible have in their turn been major sources of archaisms for Milton and many later authors.

In addition to the works mentioned above, consult: C. G. Jung, “On the Relation of Analytical Psychology to Poetic Art” (1922), in Contributions to Analytical Psychology (1928), and “Psychology and Literature,” in Modern Man in Search of a Soul (1933); G. Wilson Knight, The Starlit Dome (1941); Robert Graves, The White Goddess (rev. 1961); Richard Chase, The Quest for Myth (1949); Francis Fergusson, The Idea of a Theater (1949); Philip Wheelwright, The Burning Fountain (rev. , 1968). In the 1980s, feminist critics developed forms of archetypal criticism that revised the male bases and biases of Jung and other archetypists.

The book historian does not view the making and distribution of a book as a one-way process from author through publisher and printer to reader. ) In accordance with this perspective, book historians conceive all stages of the life cycle of a book to be interactive. The author, for example, is subject to the demands of the publisher, who estimates the market demands of readers; while the readers also directly influence the author who, in composing a work, anticipates the preferences of a potential audience.
