In the “Preface by the Translator” that Margaret Fuller penned for her translation of Goethe’s Tasso, she states: “There are difficulties attending the translation of German works into English which might baffle one much more skillful in the use of the latter than myself. A great variety of compound words enable the German writer to give a degree of precision and delicacy of shading to his expressions nearly impracticable with the terse, the dignified, but by no means flexible English idiom” (Art, Literature and the Drama, p. 355).

Seeking Contributions for excommunicated (the newsletter of the International Society for Heresy Studies), Vol. 4, No. 2,
Every heretic sooner or later faces issues of freedom of speech (or its opposite: censorship). While there may be mute heresies of a ritual nature, most of the time, heresy expresses itself in language, and it would not be termed heresy if this dissenting discourse were not in tension with normative ways of talking about faith, doctrine, and values.

Speaking on the evolution and significance of black aesthetics throughout film, music, and history, Arthur Jafa recognizes an explicitly reactive dimension in black cultural production, one predicated on the treatment or transformation of given materials. He demonstrates that black creativity and artistic expression in the United States has been elementally shaped by—and in reaction to—the parameters and circumstances of chattel slavery and its violent legacies.
