Book Excerpt :

In the second book of Kate Elliott’s Novels of the Jaran, Tess Soerensen is pulled between two powerful men—her brother and her husband—and their competing revolutions On the planet Rhui, the nomadic tribes of the jaran are uniting the settled cities of their homeland one by one. Their charismatic leader, Ilya Bakhtiian, has his loyal wife by his side, but there is something about her he doesn’t know: Tess Soerensen is a human. And not just any human—back home, her brother, Charles, led an unsuccessful revolt against the all-powerful Chapalii empire. Even though Charles was later made a duke in the Chapalii system, his revolutionary bent has not faded, and he is traveling to Rhui to locate Tess and uncover precious information about a past insurgency. Charles’s insistence that Tess join him is as strong as Ilya’s reluctance to part with his beloved wife—and neither considers that Tess may have her own plans for the future. As three fiercely independent spirits struggle for a solution, the fates of both the human race and the jaran hang in the balance. An Earthly Crown is the second volume of the Novels of the Jaran, which also include Jaran, His Conquering Sword, and The Law of Becoming.

Book Short Summary:

This edition celebrates King Henry VI Part 2 as one of the most exciting and dynamic plays of the English renaissance theatre, with its exploration of power politics and social revolution and its focus on the relationship between divine justice and sin. An extensive discussion of performance history traces the play's progress on stage from abridgement and adaptation to full historical epic. A survey of criticism discusses the wide range of responses provoked by the play's handling of its historical theme, and concludes by focusing on the element of burlesque in the attempted social revolution portrayed.

Book Short Summary:

Hailed in its first edition as an “outstanding work, as stimulating as it is intellectually distinguished” (New York Times), Law and Literature has handily lived up to the Washington Post’s prediction that the book would “remain essential reading for many years to come.” This third edition, extensively revised and enlarged, is the only comprehensive book-length treatment of the field. It continues to emphasize the essential differences between law and literature, which are rooted in the different social functions of legal and literary texts. But it also explores areas of mutual illumination and expands its range to include new topics such as the cruel and unusual punishments clause of the Constitution, illegal immigration, surveillance, global warming and bioterrorism, and plagiarism. In this edition, literary works from classics by Homer, Shakespeare, Milton, Dostoevsky, Melville, Kafka, and Camus to contemporary fiction by Tom Wolfe, Margaret Atwood, John Grisham, and Joyce Carol Oates come under Richard Posner’s scrutiny, as does the film The Matrix. The book remains the most clear, acute account of the intersection of law and literature.

Book Short Summary:

Since its emergence in sixteenth-century Germany, the magician Faust's quest has become one of the most profound themes in Western history. Though variants are found across all media, few adaptations have met with greater acclaim than in music. Bringing together more than two dozen authors in a foundational volume, The Oxford Handbook of Faust in Music testifies to the spectacular impact the Faust theme has exerted over the centuries. The Handbook's three-part organization enables readers to follow the evolution of Faust in music across time and stylistic periods. Part I explores symphonic, choral, chamber, and solo Faust works by composers from Beethoven to Schnittke. Part II discusses the range of Faustian operas, and Part III examines Faust's presence in ballet and musical theater. Illustrating the interdisciplinary relationships between music and literature and the fascinating tapestry of intertextual relationships among the works of Faustian music themselves, the volume suggests that rather than merely retelling the story of Faust, these musical compositions contribute significant insights on the tale and its unrivalled cultural impact.

Christopher Marlowe and the Failure to Unify

  • Pdf File: christopher-marlowe-and-the-failure-to-unify.pdf

Book Short Summary:

In this sustained full length study of Marlowe's plays, Andrew Duxfield argues that Marlovian drama exhibits a marked interest in unity and unification, and that in doing so it engages with a discourse of anxiety over social discord that was prominent in the 1580s and 1590s. In combination with the ambiguity of the plays, he suggests, this focus produces a tension that both heightens dramatic effect and facilitates a cynical response to contemporary evocations of and pleas for unity. This book has three main aims. Firstly, it establishes that Marlowe’s tragedies exhibit a profound interest in the process of reduction and the ideal of unity. Duxfield shows this interest to manifest itself in different ways in each of the plays. Secondly, it identifies this interest in unity and unification as an engagement in a cultural discourse that was particularly prevalent in England during Marlowe’s writing career; during the late 1580s and early 1590s heightened inter-confessional tension, the threat and reality of foreign invasion and public puritan dissent in the form of the Marprelate controversy provoked considerable public anxiety about social discord. Thirdly, the book considers the plays’ focus on unity in relation to their marked ambiguity; throughout all of the plays, unifying ideals and reductive processes are consistently subject to renegotiation with, or undercut entirely by, the complexity and ambiguity of the dramas in which they feature. Duxfield’s focus on unity as a theme throughout the plays provides a new lens through which to examine the place of Marlowe’s work in its cultural moment.

Book Short Summary:

Bestselling fantasist Katherine Kurtz combines magic, Freemasonry, and the revalation in this spellbinding tale of the American Revolution as it might have been . . . It's 1775, and in Europe, an unseen Master peers into a darkened mirror to see the man whose destiny is to wear the victor's crown. Across the sea, in a land named for a virgin queen, Gen. George Washington is thrown from his horse and has a dream that will haunt him for the rest of his life. Soon, a reluctant Washington will be elected Commander-in-Chief of the new Continental Army and considered for the position of king of America—and his rise will set in motion a chain of events that lead directly to rebellion. But little do the colonists and Founding Fathers realize that they are part of a greater plan, being used as pawns in another person's game of power and conquest. “A fascinating blend of history, adventure and conjecture which will excite the reader page after page.”—Abilene Reporter-News

Book Short Summary:

In this book, renowned Renaissance drama critic Arthur F. Kinney argues that Shakespeare's method of composing plays through networks of meanings can be seen as a harbinger of today's information technology. Drawing upon hypertext and cognitive theory--areas that have for some time promised to take on more importance in the sphere of Shakespeare Studies--as well as the central metaphor of the Routledge collection The Renaissance Computer, Kinney looks in detail at four objects/images in Shakespeare's plays--mirrors, maps, clocks, and books--and explores the ways in which they make up networks of meaning within single plays and across the dramatist's body of work that anticipate in some ways the networks of meaning or "information" now possible in the computer age.

Book Short Summary:

THE LURE OF PERFECTION: FASHION AND BALLET, 1780-1830 offers a unique look at how ballet influenced contemporary fashion and women's body image, and how street fashions in turn were reflected by the costumes worn by ballet dancers. Through years of research, the author has traced the interplay between fashion, social trends, and the development of dance. During the 18th century, women literally took up twice as much space as men; their billowing dresses ballooned out from their figures, sometimes a full 55 inches, to display costly jewelry and fine brocade work; similar costumes appeared on stage. But clothing also limited her movement; it literally disabled them, making the dances themselves little more than tableaux. Movement was further inhibited by high shoes and tight corsets; thus the image of the rigidly straight, long-lined dancer is as much a product of clothing as aesthetics. However, with changing times came new trends. An increased interest in natural movement and the common folk led to less-restrictive clothing. As viewers demanded more virtuosic dancers, women literally danced their way to freedom. THE LURE OF PERFECTION will interest students of dance and cultural history, and women's studies. It is a fascinating, well-researched look at the interplay of fashion, dance, and culture-still very much a part of our world today.

Book Short Summary:

For much too long now, a literary work, once completed, has been viewed as having a separate existence, no longer under the author's control, and so left open to a variety of responses, regardless of how widely variable, or even contradictory, they might prove to be. However, that misguided approach simply ignores the fact that the three authors, in each case, have maintained a strong controlling presence within their completed works, a pervasive presence that is clearly revealed through the meticulous crafting we can discover throughout each work. The Art of Literary Thieving invites its readers to follow in the clearly marked footsteps of these three classic authors, as each of them crafts his materials into one of the world's truly exceptional literary experiences. The close, and as yet undiscovered, relationship that exists between these three works offers readers a more revealing light that shines forth from each of them upon the other two, bringing a greater clarity to these always challenging literary creations. That relationship also helps to highlight the detailed crafting within each work that has been meticulously designed, in each case, to guide the reader to the author's ultimate goal: a vibrant, imaginative experience, imbued with meaning and emotion, that the author wishes to share with the reader. The three authors, without question, have each succeeded in reaching that goal. And they also remain, within their works, ready to show their readers how to join them. This is an important book for all literature collections.

Book Short Summary:

A story of Youthful pride, yearnings of the flesh, moments of doubt... this is a story about a man that was once and is fated to be God's representative before millions of devoted believers. With the courage of conviction, he faces all the travesties and terrors that the world throws before him, as they all come to play during a decades-long struggle, from the priesthood to his election as supreme, sovereign pontiff. What of the world he faces in the new millennium? With spirit as his ally, he stands before the issues of pederasty in the priesthood, homosexuality, abortion, racism, war, widespread terrorism, and the ever present shadow of Fear. He stands to wrest the very survival of the Church from the jaws of extinction. It is a tale of sacrifice and enduring hope, imbued with emotional power and humor. Presented as a great tale of the future, it leaves the reader asking, "what shall become of us in the decades that to follow as the irresistible forces of history come to play with the cycle of human life?" The adventures, struggles, and compassionate personalities that molded the life of Cardinal Mangasha, destined to become Constantine, the first pope from Africa, are vividly brought to life in this compelling novel. The aftermath of terrorism economic depression, war and social change ushered in a new age, but he clung to a vision, and with determination and faith, he found the will and spirit to toss the burdens of the past to the ash heap of memory, and fulfill the role Fate had planned out for him. This is a story of Faith in a World that no longer believes in anything!

Book Short Summary:

The book is about the painful hardships, tests, trials, and tribulations the Lord has put me through in the process of my calling, choosing, preparation, and ordination for ministry. It traces my calling at the age of eleven and how, from then, God protected me from the numerous attempts of the enemy to kill me. It looks at my rise to power and prestige as a company executive, my calling into and gifting for full-time ministry, the liquidation of my transport company, my subsequent financial bankruptcy, and my falling into debt and sequestration. Having lost everything I had and fallen into insolvency, the Lord began to teach me what it truly meant to live by faith and to depend on him. The book details how God led me every day by his word and the abundant revelations he showed me and the tools of survival he gave me. It contains also prophecies directed at my countrymen and Church of Christ universal. It shows how God strengthened me to overcome my tribulations, to remain positive, to not lose hope, to get back up again, and how he faithfully began to restore his favor and blessing on me once again.

Book Short Summary:

Isabel MacCaffrey contends that, in allegory, the mind makes a model of itself, and she shows that The Faerie Queene, mirroring as it does the mind's structure, is both a treatise on and an example of the central role that imagination plays in human life. Viewing the poem as a model of Spenser's universe, the author investigates the poet's theory of knowledge and the role of imagination in the construction of cosmic models. She begins with a survey of theories of the imagination and the creation of fictions, establishing a context in which allegorical images may be understood throughout the European allegorical tradition to which The Faerie Queene belongs. Isabel MacCaffrey's new readings show that insofar as Spenser's poem concerns modes of knowledge, it offers the reader an anatomy of its own composition, an analysis of imagination in its varied relations to the world. Originally published in 1976. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

  • Pdf File: the-reception-and-performance-of-euripides-herakles.pdf

Book Short Summary:

Euripides' Herakles, which tells the story of the hero's sudden descent into filicidal madness, is one of the least familiar and least performed plays in the Greek tragic canon. Kathleen Riley explores its reception and performance history from the fifth century BC to AD 2006. Her focus is upon changing ideas of Heraklean madness, its causes, its consequences, and its therapy. Writers subsequent to Euripides have tried to 'reason' or make sense of the madness, often in accordance with contemporary thinking on mental illness. She concurrently explores how these attempts have, in the process, necessarily entailed redefining Herakles' heroism. Riley demonstrates that, in spite of its relatively infrequent staging, the Herakles has always surfaced in historically charged circumstances - Nero's Rome, Shakespeare's England, Freud's Vienna, Cold-War and post-9/11 America - and has had an undeniable impact on the history of ideas. As an analysis of heroism in crisis, a tragedy about the greatest of heroes facing an abyss of despair but ultimately finding redemption through human love and friendship, the play resonates powerfully with individuals and communities at historical and ethical crossroads.

Book Short Summary:

This book constitutes a new direction for feminist studies in English Renaissance drama. While feminist scholars have long celebrated heroic females in comedies, many have overlooked female tragic heroism, reading it instead as evidence of pervasive misogyny on the part of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Displacing prevailing arguments of "victim feminism," the contributors to this volume engage a wide range of feminist theories, and argue that female protagonists in tragedies - Jocasta, Juliet, Cleopatra, Mariam, Webster's Duchess and White Devil, among others - are heroic in precisely the same ways as their more notorious masculine counterparts.

Book Short Summary:

Dealing with the Difficult pursues the truth found in understanding difficult Scripture texts, doctrines, and eschatology. Some sayings of Jesus are often misunderstood or taken out of context. Dr. Maslin brings clarification to these and other difficult Scripture passages, such as those regarding “falling away,” “being accursed from Christ,” or “succession and perpetuity.” A closer look at difficult doctrines, including grace, free will, speaking in tongues, and others, will help Bible students in their pursuit of truth and practice of biblical doctrine. When we come to end-time events, there are many popular opinions, though not necessarily accurate understandings, which must be explored further, such as the nature of the Millennium. There is no attempt to avoid controversy. The author is concerned only with arriving at truth. While this study is in no way way intended to offend, there are many supposedly settled conclusions held by sincere believers at which a closer look is needed. To achieve this goal, Dr. Maslin leads us through a careful study of these topics and many more. It is his prayer that every student of the Word will be edified, and grow in grace and the knowledge of the truth.

Book Short Summary:

This volume brings together for the first time the known writings of the pioneering Native American religious and political leader, intellectual, and author, Samson Occom (Mohegan; 1723-1792). The largest surviving archive of American Indian writing before Charles Eastman (Santee Sioux; 1858-1939), Occom's writings offer unparalleled views into a Native American intellectual and cultural universe in the era of colonialization and the early United States. His letters, sermons, journals, prose, petitions, and hymns--many of them never before published--document the emergence of pantribal political consciousness among the Native peoples of New England as well as Native efforts to adapt Christianity as a tool of decolonialization. Presenting previously unpublished and newly recovered writings, this collection more than doubles available Native American writing from before 1800.

Book Short Summary:

This package includes the complete two-volume set of 1 Peter and 2 Peter & Jude from the MacArthur New Testament Commentary series. The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series continues to be one of today's top-selling commentary series. These commentaries from respected Bible scholar and preacher John MacArthur give a verse-by-verse analysis in context and provide points of application for passages, illuminating the biblical text in practical and relevant ways. In 1 Peter, MacArthur demonstrates how this letter, written to persecuted believers scattered throughout Asia Minor, speaks to faithful Christians suffering today. Even when believers face trials and adversity, they can rest in their salvation, live out their testimony, and look forward to Jesus' return. In 2 Peter & Jude, both letters address the need to combat false teaching and to strengthen believers in the truth. In a day when sound doctrine is devalued, MacArthur's analysis of these warnings has never been more needed.

Book Short Summary:

Devotions from a Man on the Street By: Barry Douglas Bowers Barry Douglas Bowers was a man of great passion. His life lived and breathed the essence of both great victory and confidence, to one that was relatable to us all. Barry lived and breathed the love of our Abba Father, but he was also a man like all of us. He was broken, bruised, defeated, and ashamed. Despite all of this, his heart was full of love—love for his family who were both near and far, separated yet reconciled by love, love for his friends, his brothers, and a family that was a far greater blessing than human flesh could provide. His devotions are for all. They aren’t about religion or great theology but reminiscent of the greats of saints and their blessed revelations. No, Barry was, and is, incomprehensibly the “Man on the Street.” He was all of us. He was our victory and he was our sorrow. His heart for this book would be to reach the other men and women “on the street” of life, not those who are blessed and favored in this world.

Book Short Summary:

Events that are occurring in our world almost daily point to the possibility that we may be nearing the rapture of the church. As we approach ever nearer to the time when we shall meet the Lord face to face, we should begin to prepare seriously for that day. In anticipation of such a magnificent experience, we should begin to focus on his blessed presence with us now. Seven Fountains of Love attempts to reveal from the Scriptures how it is possible to make his presence a reality in our lives. He has promised never to leave or forsake those who believe in him, and he delights in revealing himself to anyone who desires an intimate relationship with Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. To begin to walk with him in this manner, we must return to the cross. The Seven Fountains expressed in the title speaks to the seven sources from which blood flowed from the body of our Lord during the events surrounding his crucifixion. Beginning with the garden of Gethsemane and proceeding to the piercing of his side by the Roman soldiers, the book attempts to show that everything needed by the believer is graciously provided, including blessed intimacy with our Lord.

Book Short Summary:

Young women are deeply dissatisfied with society's standards (and double standards). They want more for themselves--but sometimes they don't quite know what that more should be. That's where Miss Black New Jersey 2018 and Teen Vogue "It Girl" turned fashion writer Tarah-Lynn Saint-Elien comes in. Through her insightful comments on media, pop culture, and pervading cultural myths about beauty, fashion, and womanhood, Tarah-Lynn dismantles the messages that feed into the insecurities, fears, doubts, and guilt that young women experience today. She introduces them to an understanding of God as a loving Father and the King of all kings, who bestows upon his daughters a crown of love, worth, and power. And she shows them how to not only claim the promises of God but also walk purposefully in them as independent women (no prince necessary!) who respond to adversity with righteousness and authority.
