Canvas Flying, Seagulls Crying ADLARD COLES

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

After Justin and Linda Tyers lost everything in a devastating house fire, they rebuilt their lives by building a classic wooden yacht from scratch - starting by felling the trees. This story was told in their first book, Phoenix from the Ashes. This sequel follows their voyage from the Scottish Islands across to Ireland, down the Irish Sea to Cornwall and thence to Brittany, meeting interesting, curious and larger-than-life characters along the way. Justin has an unceasing ability to attract the nearest eccentric wherever he goes, a brilliant eye for natural humour in any situation, as well as a wonderful, lyrical turn of phrase. The book is peppered with amusingly told anecdotes of everyday cruising life and packed with the kind of inevitable dramatic incidents that happen when you have two inexperienced sailors trying to man a yacht that's really too big for them: running aground, losing a guest overboard and almost being shipwrecked - more than once. This is not a tale of intrepid on-the-edge sailing; it is a gentle, endearing and frequently amusing account of the sort of voyaging most cruisers can relate to and will greatly appreciate.

...enjoyable, convincing story wrapped in dramatic, well-researched historyA" - John Gordon Davis, bestselling author of Hold My Hand I'm Dying It is 1834. The Eastern Cape frontier is burning. Rauch Beukes, a young Boer of 17, returns to the family homestead to find it razed to the ground, the livestock gone and his mother and sisters slaughtered by the marauding Xhosa from across the Great Fish River. So begins a tale of violence and warfare, love and lust across racial divides, painted against the grand backdrop of the Boer migration north into the hinterland that became known as the Great Trek, the result of British duplicity and injustice. The dramatis personae are Boer and Brit, Xhosa, Zulu, Matabele and Cape Malay slaves: from the Xhosa chief Hinsta, Colonel Harry Smith, the Zulu tyrant Dingaan, to the Boer trekkers Potgieter, Retief, Maritz, Trichardt and Cilliers. And in young Rauch's life are three astonishing women: Ameila, the daughter of an English settler; Marietjie, the beautiful meisie from Graaff-Reinet; and Katrina September, the sensual ex-slave.

Culture as a Catalyst in L. VDM Verlag Dr. Müller

I examine the notion of culture as a psychedelic phenomenon in language learning. My approach to the term psychedelia is different from the 1960s' interpretation: it is the culture that reveals (dęloô) its creator's psyche (psuchę) and beguiles (deleazô) its receiver's psyche. Loving passionately the English language-culture since my childhood, I cherished a dream of becoming an English-speaking-writing-thinking person one day. First, my dream was triggered by my love of English language rock music, then by literature of the language and then by its entire culture. Through my literary works, I explore such concepts as Life, Learning, Love, Language, and Ledzeppelin where the latter is a cultural stratum on which my inner world is developed. The canvas of my writing is presented in a symbolic form of literary and musical Islands with which I create my arts-based research of new learning-teaching interactions with the learning component as dominating. I look for new perspectives on education as a lifelong process that takes place between I-world and They-world through internalization and externalization.

Opis - This memoir spans Marina Abramovic's five decade career, and tells a life story that is almost as exhilarating and extraordinary as her groundbreaking performance art. Taking us from her early life in communist ex-Yugoslavia, to her time as an a young art student in Belgrade in the 1970s, where she first made her mark with a series of pieces that used the body as a canvas, the book also describes her relationship with the West German performance artist named Ulay who was her lover and sole collaborator for 12 years. Abramovic has collaborated with stars from Lady Gaga to Jay-Z, James Franco and Willem Dafoe. Best known for her recent pieces 'The Artist is Present' and '512 Hours', this book is a fascinating insight into the life of one of the most important artists working today, and the woman who has been described as 'the grandmother of performance art'.

The Pursuit of Power - Richard Evans

Książki & Multimedia > Książki

Opis - A scintillating, encyclopaedic history, rich in detail from the arcane to the familiar...a veritable tour de force Richard Overy, New Statesman Transnational history at its finest ...social, political and cultural themes swirl together in one great canvas of immense detail and beauty Gerard DeGroot, The Times Dazzlingly erudite and entertaining Dominic Sandbrook, The Sunday Times A masterpiece which brings to life an extraordinarly turbulent and dramatic era of revolutionary change. The Pursuit of Power draws on a lifetime of thinking about nineteenth-century Europe to create an extraordinarily rich, surprising and entertaining panorama of a continent undergoing drastic transformation. The book aims to reignite the sense of wonder that permeated this remarkable era, as rulers and ruled navigated overwhelming cultural, political and technological changes. It was a time where what was seen as modern with amazing speed appeared old-fashioned, where huge cities sprang up in a generation, new European countries were created and where, for the first time, humans could communicate almost instantly over thousands of miles. In the period bounded by the Battle of Waterloo and the outbreak of World War I, Europe dominated the rest of the world as never before or since: this book breaks new ground by showing how the continent shaped, and was shaped by, its interactions with other parts of the globe. Richard Evans explores fully the revolutions, empire-building and wars that marked the nineteenth century, but the book is about so much more, whether it is illness, serfdom, religion or philosophy. The Pursuit of Power is a work by a historian at the height of his powers: essential for anyone trying to understand Europe, then or now.

Stanley Spencer KBE CBE RA (1891 - 1959) is one of the most important and influential 20th century English painters. His paintings are detailed and vibrant and very often depict his deep but eccentric Christian beliefs. Spencer was born in Cookham in Berkshire and remained in the surrounding area for the rest of his life and is buried in Cookham churchyard.As a volunteer in the Army Medical Corps during WWI Spencer was sent overseas and the war had a profound effect on his work. One of his greatest achievements were the murals painted in the Sandham Memorial Chapel in Burghclere,inspired by his war service and showing realistic scenes of everyday life in a war zone, with dreamlike visions drawn from his imagination. His large oil on canvas 'The Resurrection,Cookham' was described as 'the most important picture painted by any English artist in the present century' by The Times art critic in 1927. Set in the grounds of the Holy Trinity Church in Cookham it shows Spencer's friends and family emerging from graves watched by God, Christ and the saints.Throughout his life Spencer kept a series of journals, noting things down and sketching the things around him, and these journals are now in the Tate Gallery Archive. This book is the first of a three volume set where these journals (though abridged) are published for the first time. The journals give an insight into how Spencer thought and how he worked.Spencer received numerous awards and great recognition throughout his life and was knighted in 1958.

Window Gods Hardie Grant Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

From the award-winning author of Mad Meg (winner of the 1995 Australian National Book Council's Banjo Award) comes Window Gods, a brilliant, incisive work of art that tackles the big issues on a broad canvas: juggling the responsibilities of family whilst carving out some space for the self; the responsibilities of womanhood; negotiating the role of the mother - bringing together the pieces of a fractured life into a productive whole. 56 year old Isobel is an artist struggling to engage deeply with her subject matter while the responsibilities of womanhood tug her in all directions - her ancient mother, her son and her late sister's daughter. When a law suit brought by her half sister and her husband's cancer diagnosis collide, Isobel is thrown from one crisis to the next. Then her son disappears in Afghanistan. In a situation resembling a global Middlemarch, Isobel sets off to find her son. The journey takes her away from her ailing mother to Afghanistan, where on her journey she finds courage in friendship and new horizons. Strengthened and empowered, Isobel comes home to the bushfire season and her mother's last, hilarious days as she prepares to meet her God. Window Gods is about family, inheritance and change. Making sense of where you are and making sense of life in the absence of a single authority, or any of the old gods. Full of astute observations about life, death and everything in between it's a wry, funny and intelligent look at modern life - in all its glory.

Michele Cushatt - Undone Zondervan

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Undone is author Michele Cushatt's quest to make peace with a complicated life. It is an honest confession of a diagnosis of cancer and the joys and disappointments of motherhood and marriage, ripe with regret over what is and, yet, still hopeful for what could be. With enough humor to ease the rawness of the story, Undone takes the reader on a roller coaster two-year journey through the unexpectedness of life. A look back makes Michele long for a do-over, the chance to make fewer mistakes and leave less of a mess to clean up. A look forward makes Michele wonder if all her attempts to control life have robbed her of the vibrancy of it. And, in the middle of this internal chaos, she finds her once-pristine house filled with the sights and sounds of three small, uncontainable children who just want to be loved. In the end, Undone turns complication into a beautiful canvas, angst into joy, and the unknown into an adventure, revealing that sometimes life's most colorful and courageous stories are written right in the middle of the mess.

Portraits of Shakespeare The Bodleian Library

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Within Shakespeare's lifetime there was already some curiosity about what the writer of such brilliant poems, sonnets and plays looked like. Yet like so much else about him, Shakespeare's appearance is mysterious. Why is it so difficult to find images of him that were definitely made during his life? Which images are most likely to have been made by those close to Shakespeare, and why do these differ from each other? Also, why do newly 'discovered' images claimed as representations of the playwright emerge with such regularity? Shakespeare scholar Katherine Duncan-Jones examines these questions, beginning with an analysis of the tradition of the 'author portrait' before, during, and after Shakespeare's life. She provides a detailed critique of the three images of Shakespeare likeliest to derive from life-time portrayals: the bust in Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-upon-Avon; the 'Droeshout engraving' from the First Folio edition of Shakespeare's plays published in 1623; and the 'Chandos portrait', painted in oil on canvas in the early seventeenth century. Through a fresh exploration of the evidence and groundbreaking research, she identifies a plausible new candidate for the painter of 'Chandos'. This also throws new light on the last years of Shakespeare's life. This generously illustrated book also examines the afterlife of these three images, as memorials, in advertising and in graphic art, together with their adaptation in later commemorative statues: all evidence of a continuing desire to put a face to one of the most famous names in literature.

Assembled in this book are beautiful translations of kanshi poetry -- verse written in classical Chinese, but read as Japanese -- by the only known woman writer of the form in the Tokugawa period.Ema Saiko (1787-1861) distinguished herself as a writer of kanshi at a time when composition in Chinese was the strict province of men. She wrote poems considered the equal of those by male poets and scholars.Organized chronologically, these poems provide an engaging portrait of an artist's life. A leading member of three kanshi-writing groups, she counted among her friends poets, scholars, painters, physicians, and other prominent people. Saiko used kanshi as a diary, a canvas, and a mirror, weaving observations of her Wends and of simple pleasures: intoxication, reading, painting, contemplation, the excitement of trips and the joys of evening walks. But Saiko also uses kanshi to reflect on changes in her life -- the growth and illnessesz of family members, as well as her own physical decline. Because of its greater length than shorter forms, tanka and haiku, kanshi encompasses a greater range of subjects and offers richer, more sustained descriptions.

Combining geometrical purity and gestural grandeur, Thierry W. Despont conjugates his architectural skills and painter's virtuosity in this spectacular collection of majestic, daunting, and singularly attracting orbs, turning his struggle with corrosive materials and richly textured pigments into a spiritual achievement. A compound of restless collage and swirling pigments, each orb is animated by a life of its own: colorful magma breaking through the scorched surface of the canvas, white streaks flickering against the encroaching and abysmal darkness of a stark black background that seems about to engulf it. At the same time dynamic and mesmerizing, they are mysterious and numinous, intimate and remote; a lesson in the "abstract sublime," they conjure up the immemorial awe of man in front of a cosmic world he both reveres and dreads. Beyond the eruptive, cataclysmic forces animating them, the orbs are inwardly radiant, animated by a life that seems to emerge from their depths, and conjure up a paradoxical harmony that embues them with an ultimate metaphysical dimension.

In Giuseppe Arcimboldo's most famous paintings, grapes, fish, and even the beaks of birds form human hair. A pear stands in for a man's chin. Citrus fruits sprout from a tree trunk that doubles as a neck. All sorts of natural phenomena come together on canvas and panel to assemble the strange heads and faces that constitute one of Renaissance art's most striking oeuvres. The first major study in a generation of the artist behind these remarkable paintings, "Arcimboldo" tells the singular story of their creation. Drawing on his thirty-five-year engagement with the artist, Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann begins with an overview of Arcimboldo's life and work, exploring the artist's early years in sixteenth-century Lombardy, his grounding in Leonardesque traditions, and his tenure as a Habsburg court portraitist in Vienna and Prague. "Arcimboldo" then trains its focus on the celebrated composite heads, approaching them as visual jokes with serious underpinnings - images that poetically display pictorial wit while conveying an allegorical message. In addition to probing the humanistic, literary, and philosophical dimensions of these pieces, Kaufmann explains that they embody their creator's continuous engagement with nature painting and natural history. He reveals, in fact, that Arcimboldo painted many more nature studies than scholars have realized - a finding that significantly deepens current interpretations of the composite heads. Demonstrating the previously overlooked importance of these works to natural history and still-life painting, "Arcimboldo" finally restores the artist's fantastic visual jokes to their rightful place in the history of both science and art.
