Life Sentences: Short Stories WIPF & STOCK PUBL

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Description: Whether from established authors or by writers new to fiction, the short stories in this volume explore life as change, using Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 as the lens. The writers come from different backgrounds, perspectives, and levels of familiarity with the short story, but what ties them together is a willingness to creatively explore the raw and more uncomfortable dimensions of life--big events and small happenings--all bound up by a recognition of the inevitability and (dis)comfort of change. Each writer has a story to tell, a creative and imaginative angle on life as it happens somewhere to someone. Life Sentences represents an experiment, a recognition of and confrontation with the depth of culture and culture's life maps, with the ways in which the joys and troubles of life are given meaning. This collection attempts to address these large (and small) challenges and dynamics of life without the jargon of the professional philosopher or theologian but with the more ""earthy"" language of popular culture: the short story. Endorsements: ""An enjoyable, thought-provoking read. Life Sentences is a glimpse into varied perspectives of existence through stories told by an assorted group of writers who are as diverse as the human experience; reminding us that as we search for its meaning, there is no one way to define life; for life is a journey unique to every individual."" --Tajuana ""T J"" Butler, author of Hand-me-down Heartache (Villard, 2003) and Sorority Sisters (One World/Ballentine, 2007) ""This is an ambitious collection of stories; sharp, powerful stories as experienced and imagined by keen eyes and open hearts. They chart the many disappointments and moments of choice that occur in life. There is stellar writing here . . . moments of great and powerful prose. The diversity of voice and experience rings loudly and at once seduces. These are situations and circumstances that feel familiar. Readers will see themselves in these pages and they will feel the joy and trepidation that swirl between the covers of this book. These are stories that flow from life as it is lived. At the end of each story, I found myself reflecting on the issues and emotions I'd experienced and at the same time I I'd begin anticipating the journey that awaited me in the next. And by the time I finished 'Jack and Jill' by Colleton I was saddened by the fact that I had come to the end. ""This collection is well conceived and excellently well-rendered, a gem for readers who love life and seek the details of its many mysteries."" --Alexs Pate, University of Minnesota, author of the New York Times Best Seller Amistad: The Novel (Signet, 1997) About the Contributor(s): Anthony B.

Issues and Fragments Resource Publications

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

There are many subjects that appear in this book: Philosophy, Art, Fiction, Poetry, God. They are each approached through language that fits their content--language that itself shares characteristics of the subject it addresses. There are thus as many languages as there are subjects--exhibiting different forms of ""being about"" their subjects. Such forms are variously called ""analysis,"" or ""exegesis,"" or ""criticism,"" or ""speculation,"" or ""invention,"" or ""memories and dreams."" Issues become fragmented at the edges--the limits--of their language. Fragments, in turn, seek the shape--the boundaries--of their content. The forms of ""aboutness"" are as varied, and numerous, as are their subjects. There is no exhaustive listing. There is one subject this book is most concerned with. It underlies the others and questions the value--the possibilities--of mutual reciprocation. This, too, has many forms: ""What can or cannot be said."" ""Where are boundaries firm and where porous."" ""What is gained and what lost through interaction between subject-contents."" ""The many problems of synthesis."" ""What the difference is between 'Actual' and 'Real' in theories of life."" ""Contrasts between the nature--and the varying descriptions--of God and after-life."" The contention here is that all given descriptions are partial, and that in these partialities and their similarities, ways can found to construct--however slowly and painfully--the larger subject-nature of living and dying. ""'Evil is the other to everything that should be.' In Proustian-like prose, Krukowski considers the age-old question of good and evil, weaving together canonical philosophy with knowledge accumulated in person over the course of a well-lived life. His thoughts, both universal and intimate, are at one and the same time profound and extremely humorous as when he lists 'Qualities of people I hate,' then describes those qualities in verse before baking them into a delicious delicacy. This book won't renovate your life, but it will encourage you to value each fragment of it."" --Daniel Naegele, Editor, The Letters of Colin Rowe Lucian Krukowski is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at Washington University in Saint Louis. He is the author of This Place of Prose and Poetry (2015), Before the Beginning, During the Middle, After the End (2014), Ripe Musings (2011), Aesthetic Legacies (1992), and Art and Concept (1987).

Breast cancer can interrupt a life and demand that we pay more attention to the way we live. In this lyrical and inviting account, Patricia Greer explores associations and images that surround her experience of the disease. A Jungian analyst, she works with metaphors and meanings related to the illness and uses her dreams, inner journeys, and poetry to deepen into and under the reality of cancer. She shares her exploration with the hope that it may help others reflect on their experiences and find insights from understanding cancer as a source of wisdom. For all those who have been touched by the disease and for those who love them, care about them, care for them, breast cancer can be a soul journey. "Women diagnosed with breast cancer often describe the experience as having many layers-physical, emotional, psychological, relational, social, spiritual, and even financial. Considering the experience as a journey of the soul is an opportunity to move beyond the effects of breast cancer and into a more expansive, meaning-making exploration. Patricia's story is a generous gift to all who have experienced breast cancer and felt drawn to a deeper understanding of the point where one's essence and illness intersect. This is definitely a trip you'll be glad you took." -Jeannie Cella, MS, LCPC, executive director of Wellness House "With compassion and intelligence, Patricia Greer offers a readable and generous personal exploration of the potential meanings of breast cancer. Embracing the symbolic attitude of Jungian methods, which activate and engage unconscious layers of psyche, she focuses on cancer as teacher, a metaphoric guide to deeper self-awareness and self-knowledge. This soulful meditation on the healing power of image is a rich, sensitive contribution full of embodied wisdom, evocative language, and transcendent depth. An inspirational book for therapists, patients, and for all women and their families and friends whose lives have been touched by cancer and illness." -Judith Cooper, PsyD, clinical psychologist and Jungian analyst "Patricia Greer creates a profound pathway for those with cancer and their loved ones. She intimately shares the sacred healing capacity of dream and image that she personally experienced during her long journey with cancer. Her image of the single redbud tree resonated for me long after I put the book down. Joining Patricia on her underworld journey with cancer, I too was immersed in a deep experience of navigating the darkest nights of the soul. I am deeply touched by Patricia's work and feel her offering is tending the soul in and of the world." -Stephen Aizenstat, PhD, chancellor and founding president, Pacifica Graduate Institute Patricia Greer, MA, PhD, is a psychotherapist and Jungian analyst who has been seeing clients for more than thirty years. She has used her experience of breast cancer to deepen her ability to accompany her clients on their journeys of individuation and is especially interested in helping women identify and speak in their authentic voices and attend to and honor the wisdom of soul.

Divine Mimesis Contra Mundum Press

Written between 1963 and 1967, The Divine Mimesis, Pasolini's imitation of the early cantos of the Inferno, offers a searing critique of Italian society and the intelligentsia of the 1960s. It is also a self-critique by the author of The Ashes of Gramsci (1957) who saw the civic world evoked by that book fading absolutely from view. By the mid-1960s, Pasolini theorized, the Italian language had sacrificed its connotative expressiveness for the sake of a denuded technological language of pure communication. In this context, he projects a 'rewrite' of Dante's Commedia in which two historical embodiments of Pasolini himself occupy the roles of the pilgrim and guide in their underworld journey. Densely layered with poetic and philological allusions, and illuminated by a parallel text of photographs that juxtapose the world of the Italian literati to the simple reality of rural Italian life, this narrative was curtailed by Pasolini several years before he sent it to his publisher, a few months prior to his murder in 1975. Yet, many of Pasolini's projects took the provisional form of "Notes toward..." an eventual work, such as Sopralluoghi in Palestina (Location Scouting in Palestine), Appunti per una Oresteiade africana (Notes for an African Oresteia), and Appunti per un film sull'India (Notes for a Film on India). The Divine Mimesis has a kinship to these filmic works as Pasolini himself ruled it 'complete' though still in a partial form. Written at a turning point in his life when he was wrestling with his poetic 'demons,' the true center of gravity of Pasolini's Dantean project is the potential of poetry to teach and probe, ethically and aesthetically, in reality. "I wanted to make something seething and magmatic," Pasolini declared, "even if in prose." In this first English translation of Pasolini's La divina mimesis, Italianist Thomas E. Peterson offers historical, linguistic, and cultural analyses that aim to expand the discourse about an enigmatic author considered by many to be the greatest Italian poet after Montale. Published by Contra Mundum Press one year in advance of the 40th anniversary of Pasolini's death. * In the history of twentieth-century poetry, there is no other poet besides Pasolini who has more tenaciously interrogated his own 'I,' more persistently contemplated it, admired it, examined it, analyzed it and dissected it in order then to show its suffering entrails to the world, as they beg for understanding, affection, and pity. - Giorgio Bŕrberi Squarotti *

Jesus told us where he ""lives,"" and that he would prepare us a place there. Is our death the entry point? Must we struggle on, trying to be perfect? At a heavy pain-point in life, Judith was given a summer at an old, run-down ranch. And she wrote. Sky Mesa Journal is the account of a soul's unraveling and reweaving--and the simple metaphors of nature that moved her forward. The birds and beasts and ragged hills spoke up--in paradigm. They told her what she had never really known of that sacred understanding: God's Kingdom. It happens down deep or not at all. This mysterious inner ""landscape,"" she discovered, is the summation of our best intents and dreams and fairy tales, the answer to our hidden poverties, our inexplicable wanderings. The hills are alive! They have spoken! This is the gist of what happened on Sky Mesa Ranch. This journal is about life lived on a larger scale, for having seen the small signposts raised before her. The journal simply tells how it happened for one disheartened soul. It has been many years since that summer; for Judith, nothing has ever, ever been the same. ""During a sojourn at a ranch named Sky Mesa, Judith Deem Dupree sat daily to record not simply what she saw with her eyes, but felt with her soul. These observations, remarkably personal and therefore encouragingly human, are the music she created, solo pieces played before an audience who quickly discovers the harmonies in their own passions, 'not the cheap stuff. . .but something Spring-clean.' What a blessing she is."" --James Calvin Schaap, Author; Emeritus Professor of English, Dordt College, Sioux Center, IA ""In Sky Mesa Journal, Judith Deem Dupree invites us into her journey of discovering the abundant gifts of slowing down, attentiveness, curiosity, and compassion. With the heart of a mystic, Dupree gleans profound wisdom from the humblest of places and calls forth a holy/ordinary way of gently and radically befriending ourselves, one another, and our world.""  --Brianna Van Dyke, Editor-in-Chief, Ruminate Magazine Judith Deem Dupree has authored three books of poetry: Going Home, I Sing America, and living with what remains. She founded and directed Ad Lib, a former workshop/retreat for the arts, and created Mountain Empire Creative Arts Council in her home county. Judith taught creative writing at various workshops and conferences before retiring. An avid environmentalist and gardener, she is a fervent observer and blogger of the flux and flow of life.

"The Never Enders is a sledgehammer to the exhilarating journey filled with sex, violence, and startling desperation." -Daniel Alleva, Charged by the System "The Never Enders is beautiful and haunting at the same time," -Bethany Andrews, "book.of.the.moment" "Raw and enticing...crass and crude...the story is like a loud song that doesn't seem to die down," Helen Valencia, "Knight News" Life is dark for Perry Patton, disaffected youth and angry artist, and escape is the name of his game. With his life savings in his pocket, he leaves the home he hates and heads to a city he's ready to despise. But his escape doesn't stop there. Giving himself one week, he's ready to live fast and die soon. But that one week in the urban jungle gives him more than he bargained for. Life becomes a non-stop rollercoaster when Perry falls in with a group of hard-partying misfits who take his own attitude on life and multiply it by drugs, booze, and violence. Perry is soon swept up in the wild ride of these Never Enders, but not without consequence. The realities of a lifestyle outside the law set in and Perry finds himself with no one to trust and everything to lose. The Never Enders is gritty, dark, and deep-Catcher in the Rye meets Fight Club for a new generation. Enter a world of self-destruction, vigilantism, and the worst of urban life. Once you enter, there's only one escape. Michael Sonbert is a New York born novelist, whose dark expeditions into the world of sex, drugs, and violence, are at once shockingly real and fantastic. His original brand of hip, character-driven literary fiction focuses on the things we do to ourselves when we hate ourselves, and what it means to be young, addicted, and unloved. Sonbert's literature is born not out of lectures and writing classes. His is more the visceral, instinctual work that reminds one of early Charles Bukowski and Jack Kerouac. As he bleeds his beautifully violent brand of poetic prose onto the page, he creates riveting characters that traverse gripping plotlines that are equal parts lovely, disturbing, psychedelic and pulse pounding. As a member of The Biggs, a New York writer's collective, Michael presents his work regularly at venues such as Bowery Poetry Club, KGB Bar, and Cornelia Street Café, where he captivates audiences with his rapid-fire, high energy performances. Sonbert unleashes his alter-ego while singing and co-writing songs, for his Rock n' Roll band, The Never Enders. Their debut album, Air Raid Romance, was released nationwide on Indianola Records, Their latest effort, Dance Party In Hell, was released in May 2008 on Chamberlain Records.

Sarashina Diary Columbia University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A thousand years ago, a young Japanese girl embarked on a journey from the wild East Country to the capital. She began a diary that she would continue to write for the next forty years and compile later in life, bringing lasting prestige to her family. Some aspects of the author's life and text seem curiously modern. She married late and identified more as a writer than as a wife and mother. Enthralled by romantic fiction, she wrote extensively about the disillusioning blows that reality can deal to fantasy. The Sarashina Diary is a portrait of the writer as reader and a tribute to the power of reading to shape one's expectations and aspirations. As a person and an author, this writer presages the medieval era in Japan with her deep concern for Buddhist belief and practice. Her narrative's main thread follows a trajectory from youthful infatuation with romantic fantasy to the disillusionment of age and concern for the afterlife; yet, at the same time, many passages erase the dichotomy between literary illusion and spiritual truth. This translation and its introduction draw attention to the poetry in the Sarashina Diary and the juxtaposition of poetic passages and narrative prose, which brings meta-meanings into play. The translators commentary offers insight into the author's family and world, as well as the fascinating textual legacy of her work.

My Pen Speaks is a collection of rhythmic thoughts, observations and life experiences brought together in a powerful reflection of free-form poetry. Resonating with power, passion and conviction, these poems show Patrice Watley-Williams' focus on paying it forward. We often think that the only ones that need us are the less fortunate. This is far from the truth. With success comes negativity and hardship, which can turn the triumph to loneliness and often misery. The poet welcomes the reader to share the joys as well as the hardships of her life, to learn to love and embrace the trials as well as successes, and to realize that no matter how dark things may seem, we are never alone in our experiences. "In a world filled with struggles, your book gives people a chance to step away from their own challenges and remember that life can be simple and good. People who read it will not only celebrate...but may become motivated to follow a few dreams of their own." Silas "SiMan Baby" Alexander, Radio Personality "Real, relevant and refreshing are just some of the thoughts that come to mind when describing My Pen Speaks. This book is without question some of author Patrice Watley-Williams' best work to date and displays her special gift of communicating her thoughts and experiences to attract a diverse audience. We truly love this book." Grafted By Grace, Contemporary Christian Recording Artists "Lose yourself for a moment, flash back and reflect on the words and their true meaning, realizing the true spirit and passion behind this phenomenal book as it takes your mind and soul on a journey. It goes without saying the spirit and talents possessed by this blossoming author are highly heralded."

From the National Book Award-winning author of Just Kids: an unforgettable odyssey into the mind of this legendary artist, told through the prism of cafés and haunts she has visited and worked in around the world.§§M Train is a journey through eighteen "stations." It begins in the tiny Greenwich Village café where Smith goes every morning for black coffee, ruminates on the world as it is and the world as it was, and writes in her notebook. We then travel, through prose that shifts fluidly between dreams and reality, past and present, across a landscape of creative aspirations and inspirations: from Frida Kahlo's Casa Azul in Mexico, to a meeting of an Arctic explorer's society in Berlin; from the ramshackle seaside bungalow in New York's Far Rockaway that Smith buys just before Hurricane Sandy hits, to the graves of Genet, Plath, Rimbaud, and Mishima. Woven throughout are reflections on the writer's craft and on artistic creation, alongside signature memories including her life in Michigan with her husband, guitarist Fred Sonic Smith, whose untimely death was an irremediable loss. For it is loss, as well as the consolation we might salvage from it, that lies at the heart of this exquisitely told memoir, one augmented by stunning black-and-white Polaroids taken by Smith herself. M Train is a meditation on endings and on beginnings: a poetic tour de force by one of the most brilliant multiplatform artists at work today.
