Epístola de Heloísa a Abelar - Alexander Pope

Rádio Caractere

Alexander Pope, um dos mais importantes poetas britânicos do século XVIII, adota a voz feminina em Epístola de Heloísa a Abelar para representar, com um texto riquíssimo e de delicada expressão poética, a missiva de Heloísa de Argenteuil, através de uma carta endereçada ao filósofo e ex-amante, Pedro Abelardo. A trágica história do casal Heloísa e Abelardo, separados por uma violência extrema e pela reclusão dos dois à vida monástica, é o tema deste episódio, tomando por base a epístola escrita por Pope. O texto é belíssimo, bem como as características estilísticas, abordando temas como pecado, resiliência, renúncia, amor e cristandade. Neste programa, apresentamos não apenas um panorama da vida e da obra do autor, mas também falamos sobre a importância do casal que inspirou Alexander Pope. A trajetória deles é fundamental para compreender o papel de Abelardo enquanto filósofo e sua influência no processo educacional do período medieval, por exemplo, além de descortinar o papel de Heloísa enquanto representação da intelectualidade feminina nas concepções filosóficas da Idade Média.

Derrick Alexander Pope │Hidden Legal Figures Podcast Collaboration │The City of Memphis v. Martin Luther King, Jr. et al.

The Great Trials Podcast

This week, your hosts Steve Lowry and Yvonne Godfrey interview Derrick Alexander Pope of Hidden Legal Figures (https://www.hiddenlegalfigures.com/). Remember to rate and review GTP in iTunes: Click Here To Rate and Review Episode Details: Hidden Legal Figures Podcast host Derrick Alexander Pope returns to discuss what proved to be Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King, Jr.'s last legal stand and how its historical significance continues to impact protests to this day. In February 1968, more than 1,000 African-American sanitation workers in Memphis, Tennessee, went on strike after two black sanitation workers were killed on the job. A local pastor invited King to help the protestors nonviolently strike for job safety, better wages, benefits and union recognition. On March 28, 1968, King and other protestors peacefully marched through Memphis until violence broke out and looting took place, resulting in numerous injuries, arrests and the calling of the National Guard. Unhappy with the unwanted attention his presence and participation brought, the City of Memphis sued King and his Southern Christian Leadership Conference associates, including Hosea Williams, James Bevel, James Orange, Ralph Abernathy and Bernard Lee. On April 3, 1968, U.S. District Court Judge Bailey Brown issued a temporary restraining order against King as part of the city's attempts to thwart the next planned march. On today's special collaborative episode with the Hidden Legal Figures Podcast, Derrick Alexander Pope shares how King's lawyers Mike Cody and Lucius Burch sought and secured a compromise with the City of Memphis, which resulted in lifting the restraining order and allowing the march to go on with safety restrictions in place. The night before the compromise was formalized, King was tragically assassinated.  Click Here to Read/Download the Complete Trial Documents Guest Bio: Derrick Alexander Pope: Derrick Alexander Pope, who describes himself as a composer and conductor of ideas, is President and founding Director of The Arc of Justice Institute.

Ep. 6 - Essay On Man, Epistle IV | Alexander Pope

Finneran's Wake

"That virtue only makes our bliss below, and all our knowledge is, ourselves to know". In other words, if this couplet were to be condensed into an utterance more succinct, "Know Thyself". So saith the inscription on the wall of the famed temple at Delphi, so saith the less-than pagan Pope. Enjoy this final installment of his "Essay On Man".
