Tiny Grievances HowNow Media

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Tiny Grievances is a collection of mostly gay-themed short stories and a novella, "Inside The Scar Circle." Thomson returns to familiar, fertile ground with these stories about troubled and failing urban lives, fractured families, broken friendships, community, questioning the status quo, belonging, ageing, and the search for love in a world geared toward quick fixes. "At turns uproariously funny, poignant and genuinely moving, these stories take you deep into the souls of everyday people trying to survive. Accomplished, assured and gripping, Robert Thomson's Tiny Grievances tears apart the hilarity, humiliation and tragedy of human tribulation. From a genteel aunt exhibiting odd behaviour to a man stalking a former lover even as he knows he shouldn't, Thomson's characters are real, biting and very memorable." (Jared Mitchell, author of Mayhem and Becky Chan) "The Ballad Of Aunt Stabby" chronicles a disastrous dinner party as two pretentious hosts try to distract their misfit guests from an opinionated aunt who arrives beaten and bleeding. "I'll Wait Here." Two friends with benefits find themselves at a casual crossroads when one man loses his job and the other, surprisingly, is empathetic and supportive about the situation. "Smoking." It's about the urge that makes you want to smoke. "Three Words Away" is about lost love and regret. After more than a decade, a man spots an ex-lover and gets caught up in an imaginary reunion. "Hide Everything" details the ripple effect caused by a gay man's failed suicide attempt. "Stalking Harold Greenbaum" is a dramatic comedy about how the friendship between two middle-aged women is shattered when one of them renovates herself in order to win the love of a co-worker. In "This Functional Family" an introverted gay man must stand up against his conniving sociopathic sister when the two reunite after the death of their step-mother. A long-distance S/M relationship is on the rocks and "Platform" reveals the inner workings of the slave as he contemplates ending the relationship with his Master. "Tiny Grievances." Two childhood friends are reunited; both are raw and broken and neither one of them is in a position to help the other. "Stopping Quitting" chronicles one man's attempt to stop smoking by exploring semantics and undergoing a spiritual awakening. "Inside The Scar Circle" is a novella about friendship, community, alienation, and which cocktail goes with what outfit. After a failed relationship, a loner, on vacation in Puerto Vallarta, finds himself part of a clique and begins to examine his identity as a gay man.

Modern Sculpture Reader ROUNDHOUSE PUBLISHING GROUP

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This title presents a critical collection of writings on the creation, display, and interpretation of sculpture. In many anthologies of art, sculpture is given short shrift in relation to other media, if it is treated at all. "Modern Sculpture Reader" aims to rectify this situation by presenting a collection of important texts that have defined sculpture's radically changing status and role since the end of the 19th century, a time marked by a general reappraisal of the forms and functions of art. From the rigorously theoretical to the experimental and poetic, "Modern Sculpture Reader" offers a lively discourse on the medium by a range of artists, writers, critics, and poets - Marcel Duchamp, Louise Bourgeois, Claes Oldenberg, Andre Breton, Ezra Pound, and Clement Greenberg - in a variety of genres: poems, lectures, transcribed interviews, newspaper and magazine articles, and artists' statements. These diverse text selections offer valuable insight into the development of the critical language of sculpture and its connections to other media in an era of increasingly conceptual artistic practice.

Jury in Lincoln's America - 2859273470

Jury in Lincoln's America Ohio University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In the antebellum Midwest, Americans looked to the law, and specifically to the jury, to navigate the uncertain terrain of a rapidly changing society. During this formative era of American law, the jury served as the most visible connector between law and society. Through an analysis of the composition of grand and trial juries and an examination of their courtroom experiences, Stacy Pratt McDermott demonstrates how central the law was for people who lived in Abraham Lincoln's America. McDermott focuses on the status of the jury as a democratic institution as well as on the status of those who served as jurors. According to the 1860 census, the juries in Springfield and Sangamon County, Illinois, comprised an ethnically and racially diverse population of settlers from northern and southern states, representing both urban and rural mid-nineteenth-century America. It was in these counties that Lincoln developed his law practice, handling more than 5,200 cases in a legal career that spanned nearly twenty-five years. Drawing from a rich collection of legal records, docket books, county histories, and surviving newspapers, McDermott reveals the enormous power jurors wielded over the litigants and the character of their communities.

Post-Soviet Politics Sage Publications

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Around twenty years since the end of the Cold War, social, political and economic turmoil appears to have been replaced by a period of stability within Russia. The broader shift from a bi-polar world to one of multi-polarity in which rising powers and former Great Powers vie for representation has, however, not been without considerable instability as Russia has sought to re-define her status in the post-Communist period. These relations have, of course, been further complicated by a series of conflicts in post-Soviet space, ethnic wars within Russia and on her borders, and broader political and social changes associated with national and Islamic revivalism, as well as the war on terror. Debates both within and on the politics of post-Soviet relations continue, as complex regional dynamics in Central Asia, the Greater Middle East and Eastern Europe shape foreign relations. Equally, the end of Communism, the ensuing political liberalism and economic 'shock' therapy have led to significant changes within the social make-up of Russia. These themes have been used not only to offer insight into the changing social, economic and political relations in the Yeltsin and Putin eras, but this has also led to considerable debates about exactly what post-Communism and Post-Sovietism actually mean. This context affords a much needed opportunity to revisit post-Soviet politics in order to collate seminal pieces on the historical trends, political changes and international dynamics which continue to evolve, and which have framed the post-Communist period. The central aim of these four volumes is to capture this diversity so as offer a timely collection of seminal excerpts on post-Soviet politics, thereby giving insight into how we understand Russia today.

Staged Properties in Early Modern English Drama - 2854580652

Staged Properties in Early Modern English Drama Cambridge University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This collection of essays studies the material, economic and dramatic roles played by stage properties in early modern English drama. Often, the received wisdom about the commercial stage in Shakespeare's time is that it was a bare one, uncluttered by objects. Staged Properties offers a critique of this view. The volume offers valuable evidence and insight into the modes of production, circulation and exchange that brought such properties as sacred garments, household furnishings, pawned objects and even false beards on to the stage. Departing from previous scholarship which has mainly focused solely on the symbolic or iconographic aspects of props, these essays explore their material dimensions, and in particular, their status as a special form of property. The volume reflects upon what the material history of stage props may tell us about the changing demographics, modes of production and consumption, and notions of property that contributed to the rise of the commercial theatre in London.
