Passion of Emily Dickinson Harvard University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"How tame and manageable are the emotions of our bards, how placid and literary their allusions!" complained essayist T. W. Higginson in the Atlantic Monthly in 1870. "The American poet of passion is yet to come." He was, of course, unaware of the great erotic love poems such as "Wild Nights--Wild Nights!" and "Struck was I, nor yet by Lightning" being privately written by his reclusive friend Emily Dickinson. In a profound new analysis of Dickinson's life and work, Judith Farr explores the desire, suffering, exultation, spiritual rapture, and intense dedication to art that characterize Dickinson's poems, and deciphers their many complex and witty references to texts and paintings of the day. In The Passion of Emily Dickinson the poet emerges, not as a cryptic proto-modern or a victim of female repression, but as a cultivated mid-Victorian in whom the romanticism of Emerson and the American landscape painters found bold expression. Dickinson wrote two distinct cycles of love poetry, argues Farr, one for her sister-in-law Sue and one for the mysterious "Master, " here convincingly identified as Samuel Bowles, a friend of the family. For each of these intimates, Dickinson crafted personalized metaphoric codes drawn from her reading. Calling books her "Kinsmen of the Shelf, " she refracted elements of Jane Eyre, Antony and Cleopatra, Tennyson's Maud, De Quincey's Confessions, and key biblical passages into her writing. And, to a previously unexplored degree, Dickinson also quoted the strategies and subjec matter of popular Hudson River, Luminist, and Pre-Raphaelite paintings, notably Thomas Cole's Voyage of Life and Frederic Edwin Church's Heart of the Andes. Involved in the delicateprocess of both expressing and disguising her passion, Dickinson incorporated these sources in an original and sophisticated manner. Farr's superb readings of the poems and letters call on neglected archival material and on magazines, books, and paintings owned by the Dickinsons. Viewe

Crete. Wonders of a glorious land Independently Published

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

You want to discover the natural and cultural treasures of one of the most extraordinary Greek islands from an expert? This is the book for you! (This is the black and white edition of the first part, on West Crete. There is also a colour edition and the second part on East Crete, along with an edition on the entire island and other books in the series). This book describes the largest island of Greece, a land of great natural beauty, but also of many cultural wonders and at the same time land of great contradictions: enormous mountain chains, the mythological birthplace of Zeus, the supreme god of ancient Greeks, covered with snow and at the same time overlooking some of the finest beaches in Greece; spectacular gorges, olive groves, traditional villages, Venetian historical centres. This is the landscape of Crete, what the eye sees.But beyond what the eye sees, this is also one of the most glorious lands that can be. Homeland of the Minoan civilisation, the most ancient great civilization in Europe, which has left owe-striking palaces, revealing an amazingly high life standard in Prehistory; godmother of Europe itself since Zeus, after taking the form of a bull and abducting the Phoenician princess Europa, brought her to Crete, part of the continent that was named after her; homeland of the artists of the Cretan school, the greatest expression of post-Byzantine painting; homeland of El Greco, the greatest painter in the history of Greece, a direct offspring of this school, who, even in Spain, the country that became his second home and assured him eternal fame, never ceased signing his paintings as 'Domenikos Theotokopoulos, Cretan'; homeland of Vincenzos Cornaros, author of Erotokritos, the greatest Greek epic poem of modern times, at the same time the greatest monument of the modern Greek language and the Cretan dialect; homeland of Nikos Kazantzakis, for many the greatest author of modern Greece; homeland of Eleftherios Venizelos, the greatest politician of modern Greece (the airport of Athens bears his name); homeland of Nikos Xylouris, one of the greatest and most popular Greek singers and composers of our time.Along with all that, Crete is the land of ferocious resistance to whoever tried to subjugate these proud people, for whom freedom is the highest value: Venetians and Ottomans had a very hard time conquering and keeping this island; in more recent history, the resistance to the Nazis has written one of the most illustrious pages of World War II, while a great number of Cretan villages have paid very dearly their refusal to submit. This love for freedom goes with the love for this island's intense cultural identity, forged by its distance from the mainland and its autarchy, sustained by its fertile soil (which produces the ingredients of the famous Cretan diet); and, consequently, with a very marked desire to preserve tradition in language, music, poetry, dance, clothing, food. I doubt there is another place in Greece where tradition is an affair of such a high percentage of the population, especially young people. If I reveal to you that part of my roots is to be discovered in Crete, you will say I am biased. But I bet that a visit will change your mind. I guarantee you, you will not regret it... The author of this book holds a Ph.D. in Architectural History from the National Technical University of Athens and a master's in heritage preservation from the Ecole de Chaillot of Paris. He is a professor at the University of the Peloponnese, where he teaches these subjects. He is also a fervent cultural hiker. His travel books (mostly about Greece) are addressed to you, the reader with a special interest in cultural sites. In order to help you better understand and remember these sites, they are written as a guided tour.

HOMEGROUND: THE KATE BUSH MAGAZINE: ANTHOLOGY TWO: 'THE RED SHOES' TO '50 WORDS FOR SNOW' HomeGround is a magazine devoted to Kate Bush (born in 1958), a British pop star best-known for hits such as 'Wuthering Heights', 'Wow', 'Hounds of Love' and 'Running Up That Hill'. This book is pure heaven for music fans. The HomeGround magazine anthology includes material inspired by all periods of Kate Bush's musical progression. It is a book about the reaction to her work and how her unique music has touched the lives of so many people. This is a unique book, a labour of love for hundreds of music fans who have contributed to HomeGround over its thirty-year existence. The book includes an enormous amount of information about Kate Bush, accounts of every release, album, single, pop promo and appearance, as well as memories and accounts of music fandom (such as conventions, meetings, hikes, stage door encounters and video parties). It also includes material on many other pop acts and events. It features poetry, stories, letters, reviews, interviews, memoirs, cartoons, drawings, paintings and photographs. This is the second book of a two volume set, totalling over 1200 pages. The second volume covers Kate Bush's career from 'The Red Shoes' album to '50 Words For Snow' album (from the early 1990s to the present day). The first book runs from the origins of Bush's career to the album 'The Sensual World'. The first issue of HomeGround appeared in 1982, four years after Kate Bush's dramatic debut with 'Wuthering Heights'. Starting with an ancient manual typewriter, and a pot of glue paste, the editors mounted articles on recycled backing sheets and added hand-drawn artwork to fill the gaps. The first issue was photocopied, the pages hand-stapled together and twenty-five copies were given away to fans they knew. Only later did they discover the magic of word processing, and desktop publishing. From those beginnings HomeGround became a cornerstone of the 'Kate-speaking world', the editors going on to organise four official fan events at which Kate Bush and members of her family and band appeared, arrange at Bush's request a team of fans to be extras in two of her videos and organise informal fan gatherings at Glastonbury and Top Withens, the storm-blown ruin on Haworth Moor. Years before the internet, HomeGround became a place where fans could discuss Bush's music, and a place where they could publish creative writing and artwork that music inspired. www.crmoon.com.

Pericles Penguin Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Pericles was Shakespeare's first full-blown tragicomedy, the precursor to The Winter's Tale, Cymbeline and The Tempest, and one of his most popular plays in the seventeenth century. This Penguin edition is edited by Eugene Giddens. 'One sin, I know, another doth provoke; Murder's as near to lust as flame to smoke.' Pericles, Prince of Tyre, must solve a riddle in order to marry the daughter of the King of Antioch, or be put to death. But when the answer reveals a horrific secret, the young man faces his greatest dilemma. Danger and adventure follow as Pericles flees the city to find his fortune elsewhere, in a romantic drama of families lost and reunited, evil punished and virtue rewarded. This book contains a general introduction to Shakespeare's life and Elizabethan theatre, a separate introduction to Pericles, a chronology, suggestions for further reading, an essay discussing performance options on both stage and screen, and a commentary. William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was born to John Shakespeare and Mary Arden in late April 1564 in Stratford-upon-Avon.He wrote about 38 plays (the precise number is uncertain), many of which are regarded as the most exceptional works of drama ever produced, including Romeo and Juliet (1595), Henry V (1599), Hamlet (1601), Othello (1604), King Lear (1606) and Macbeth (1606), as well as a collection of 154 sonnets, which are among the most profound and influential love poetry in English. Eugene Giddens is Skinner-Young Professor in Shakespeare and Renaissance Literature at Anglia Ruskin University.
