This paper examines how the gender of personification is affected in Italian translations of Oscar Wilde’s children’s stories. It shows how the conflict between natural and grammatical gender may be problematic for the translator and reveals how Italian children, who believe they are reading a text identical to the original, are in fact reading a somewhat different story.

The following paper revolves around the concept of thanatos, whose name comes from the personification of death in the Greek mythology. In other words, the objective of this paper is to analyze the main forms and symbols regarding the theme of death in several poems of Lucian Blaga and Dylan Thomas and try to explain how, despite the fact that they come from different cultural environments and have different sources of inspiration and literary purposes regarding the aim of their works, their poetical works present several resemblances in terms of meaning in relation to the theme of death, as approached in the 20th century modern poetry.

The article presents an overview of literature related to two topical issues in modern medicine: transplantation and biomarkers. There have been advances made in the use of immunoenzymometric and immunoadsorption assays in organ transplantation clinics for evaluating different situations. However, these methods fail to solve more complex and ambiguous transplantation problems: tolerance, personification of treatment, etc. In this regard, the first results of prospective studies using OMICS methods of genomics and proteinomics, in relation to the notion of transplantomics, are presented


In the development of the voice conversion and personification of the text-to-speech (TTS) systems, it is very necessary to have feedback information about the users’ opinion on the resulting synthetic speech quality. Therefore, the main aim of the experiments described in this paper was to find out whether the classifier based on Gaussian mixture models (GMM) could be applied for evaluation of different storytelling voices created by transformation of the sentences generated by the Czech and Slovak TTS system. We suppose that it is possible to combine this GMM-based statistical evaluation with the classical one in the form of listening tests or it can replace them. The results obtained in this way were in good correlation with the results of the conventional listening test, so they confirm practical usability of the developed GMM classifier. With the help of the performed analysis, the optimal setting of the initial parameters and the structure of the input feature set for recognition of the storytelling voices was finally determined.


The publication of Germaine Greer’s The Change: Women, Aging and the Menopause presents a manifesto for women’s emancipation and their imminent embarkment on the avenue of freedom towards the liberation from the male gaze. In a similar vein, Edna O’Brien, a pioneer of the literary treatment of female agency and sexuality in the Irish literary canon, moves past the age when women enjoy visibility. Age liberates O’Brien from her entrapment in the public persona and her anxious relationship with the public opinion. It has the power to enhance the possibility of women’s difference. Nowadays, the commitment to women’s cause, the inherent element of O’Brien’s narratives, continues to mark out the uncompromising discourse of transgression of the standard as well as her vigilant condemnation of violence against women. In time, O’Brien has become both a foremother author and a legend. She has embraced her unrepressed femininity and the personification of a female sage that Irish women writers have long lacked and may thus represent a role model for authors who wish to transgress the discriminatory standards and defend the female voice.

them within the poems and proverbs. Minangkabau people often take the personifications from nature, such as animals and plants, as the subject in their poems and proverbs, which may obscure the real meaning of the teaching itself. Hence, the combination of linguistic aspect and biological aspect are essential to reveal the content of the poems and proverbs. In this paper, using some examples, we show how the biological perspective assists in understanding why certain organisms used in the poem or proverb and what hidden lessons indirectly pointed out therein

Nietzsche deems: a fatal and seductive lie. The Devil is a dweller of the underworld and hell, and “at last, Myra is where she belongs…” Myra A personification of the myths. Violator of gender norms, of human norms. A Frankenstein’s monster amalgamation of fiction. That holy shape becomes a devil best. A Siren for children, a wolf in grandmother’s clothes. What a broad build she has, what brassy blonde hair. She is paradoxically propelled to supernatural status, whilst plummeted to a human subspecies. Neither and either. Nothing and both. But she

Simeon Marcovici (1802-1877), on whom the fifth chapter is focused, was a Romanian translator and rhetoric professor from the 19th century who fully supported free translation.

As far as the translational approach of Marcovici is concerned, the author
