Book Short Summary:

The third in the Modern Library's series of original compilations, The Raven and the Monkey's Paw is a collection of classic tales and poems to engage our fear-seeking senses. The beauty of these stories and poems lies in their readability: ideal for sharing aloud around the campfire or for a quick, thrilling dip . . . under the covers with a flashlight. The writing itself sends as many awe-inspired shivers down the spine as do the ghosts and goblins on these pages. Edgar Allan Poe, the master of the horror story and the chiming lyric poem, opens the volume with his best-loved stories: "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," "The Black Cat," "The Fall of the House of Usher," "The Pit and the Pendulum," "The Premature Burial," "The Tell-Tale Heart," "Berenice," and "Ligeia." Every bit as chilling now as on the day they were written, these tales retain their power to stir the reader again and again. Poe, who was as well known for his poems as for his stories, is also represented by such verse standards as "The Raven," "Lenore," "To Helen," "Ulalume," and "Annabel Lee," among others. Numerous other practitioners of the supernatural story are included: Edith Wharton, with her gripping "Afterward"; Charles Dickens and his famed ghost story "The Signalman"; W. W. Jacobs, with this compilation's inspiration, "The Monkey's Paw." Also here are Saki's engrossing "Sredni Vashtar"; O. Henry's story of love lost and hopes dashed, "The Furnished Room"; Wilkie Collins's lively "A Terribly Strange Bed"; and "The Boarded Window," Ambrose Bierce's tale of the bizarre. A year-round collection for reading aloud—and frightening your friends—The Raven and the Monkey's Paw will gratify all manner of thrill-seekers.

목차 - The Gift of the Magi - 작가 연보 책 소개 ● 가슴 뭉클한 사랑의 메시지! 영어 원문과 용어 풀이 수록 “1달러 87센트. 그게 전부였다.” 이들이 바로 동방박사다. 『크리스마스 선물(The Gift of the Magi)』은 이런 문장으로 시작해서 끝이 난다. 다가오는 크리스마스에 선물을 살 돈도 없는 가난한 부부가 왜 동방박사라는 것인지 오 헨리는 휴머니즘이 담긴 따뜻한 시선으로 풀어낸다. 사랑하는 사람을 위해서 가장 소중한 것을 주었지만, 아니 가장 소중한 것을 잃었지만 그것은 상실이 아니라 충만한 사랑의 기쁨이라는 사실을 위트 있게 보여주는 명작이다. 가슴 뭉클한 내용을 원문 그대로 전하는 한편, 고전의 이해를 돕고자 영어 텍스트와 용어 풀이를 함께 실었다. 아울러 오 헨리의 일대기를 한눈에 볼 수 있도록 꼼꼼하게 작가 연보를 정리했다. 출판사 서평 ● 우리는 우울할 때 오 헨리의 단편을 읽는다 『크리스마스 선물』은 1906년에 발표된 오 헨리의 단편소설이다. 가난한 서민의 애환을 유머와 페이소스로 그려냈던 오 헨리의 감성이 잘 드러나는 작품이다. 특히 작가 특유의 탁월한 ‘반전 결말(twist ending)’이 인상적이다. 눈물 콧물 짜다가 웃기도 하는 게 인생이라는 본문 내용처럼 고단한 일상에 지친 주인공이 울다가 훌쩍거리다가 결국엔 미소 짓는 전개 방식을 보여 준다. “우리는 우울할 때 오 헨리의 단편을 읽는다.” 전기 작가 로버트 데이비드의 말처럼 오 헨리의 작품 속에는 위로의 힘이 있다. 책 속의 글 For ten seconds let us regard with discreet scrutiny some inconsequential object in the other direction. Eight dollars a week or a million a year — what is the difference?

Book Short Summary:

We live in a profoundly spiritual age, but not in any good way. Huge swaths of American culture are driven by manic spiritual anxiety and relentless supernatural worry. Radicals and traditionalists, liberals and conservatives, together with politicians, artists, environmentalists, followers of food fads, and the chattering classes of television commentators: America is filled with people frantically seeking confirmation of their own essential goodness. We are a nation desperate to stand of the side of morality--to know that we are righteous and dwell in the light. In An Anxious Age, Joseph Bottum offers an account of modern America, presented as a morality tale formed by a collision of spiritual disturbances. And the cause, he claims, is the most significant and least noticed historical fact of the last fifty years: the collapse of the mainline Protestant churches that were the source of social consensus and cultural unity. Our dangerous spiritual anxieties, broken loose from the churches that once contained them, now madden everything in American life. Updating The Protestant Ethic and the Sprit of Capitalism, Max Weber's sociological classic, An Anxious Age undertakes two case studies of contemporary social classes adrift in a nation without the religious understandings that gave them meaning. Looking at the college-educated elite he calls "the Poster Children," Bottum sees the post-Protestant heirs of the old mainline Protestant domination of culture: dutiful descendants who claim the high social position of their Christian ancestors even while they reject their ancestors' Christianity. Turning to the Swallows of Capistrano, the Catholics formed by the pontificate of John Paul II, Bottum evaluates the early victories--and later defeats--of the attempt to substitute Catholicism for the dying mainline voice in public life. Sweeping across American intellectual and cultural history, An Anxious Age traces the course of national religion and warns about the strange angels and even stranger demons with which we now wrestle. Insightful and contrarian, wise and unexpected, An Anxious Age ranks among the great modern accounts of American culture.

Book Short Summary:

Mr. Sennewald’s first book was a fictional novel about foreign cars, namely a Volkswagen. He was offered a story line buyout because a producer wanted the story for a motion picture. Sennewald declined the generous offer. For years friends, family, and colleagues have talked about the story with its totally surprising ending and have complained about his failure to write more fictional works. The real demand for his work has been in writing textbooks on management, consulting, shoplifting, and criminal investigations. To satisfy the complainants, he’s been writing short stories that are fun to read and invariably have surprising and/or unexpected endings. This book is a collection of those great stories between two covers. If the reader likes to or tries to outguess the stories’ endings, he or she will enjoy every page of this book. They will agree that this collection is an interesting journey indeed.

Book Short Summary:

The Magi also called the Wise Men offered their gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to the young Jesus. Recorded in the Gospel of Matthew, this is one of the most misunderstood passages in the Bible. Not one theologian or teacher through the ages has discovered the true Biblical meaning, until now. Within these pages you will learn the hidden message of their gifts. You will also be astounded by the Magi’s profound knowledge of Scripture. Their gifts go to the depths of the Mosaic law. Moreover Nicodemus, the chief ruler of the Jews at the time of Christ, and a Pharisee, knew the meaning. His participation in the burial of Jesus was no coincidence, as only one who knew the Scriptures completely could perform the preparation of the Sacrificial Lamb of God. You will not want to miss the discoveries in this book, and you will be greatly blessed by all the details presented that theologians have missed through the ages

Book Short Summary:

Matthew's Gospel reveals little about the three wealthy visitors said to have presented gifts to the infant Jesus. Yet hundreds of generations of Christians have embellished that image of the Three Kings or Magi for a myriad of social and political as well as spiritual purposes. Here Richard Trexler closely examines how this story has been interpreted and used throughout the centuries. Biblically, the Journey of the Magi presents a positive image of worldly power, depicting the faithful in progress toward their God and conveying the importance of the gift-giving laity as legitimators of their deity. With this in mind, Trexler explains in particular how Western societies have molded the story to describe and augment their own power--before the infant God and among themselves. The author demonstrates how the magi as a group functioned in Christian society. For example, magi plays, processions, and images taught people how to pray and behave in reverential contexts; they featured monarchs and heads of republics who enacted the roles of the magi to legitimate their rule; and they constrained native Americans to fall in line behind the magi to instill in them loyalty toward the European world order. However, Trexler also shows these philosopher-kings as competitive among each other, as were groups of different ages, races, and genders in society at large. Originally modeled on representations of the Roman triumphs, the magi have reached the present day as street children wearing crowns of cardboard, proving again the universality of the image for constructing, reinforcing, and even challenging a social hierarchy. Originally published in 1997. 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.

Book Short Summary:

The twelve days of Christmas follow from December 25 until January 6, the Feast of the Epiphany, the traditional date when the Magi arrived to present gifts to infant Jesus. For many, the meaning of these days is lost. By Christmas night we are saturated with the holiday hype, overfed by music and food, and may already be disappointed that the presents received are not enough. The book is not a bah humbug about Christmas customs and presents. This is simply an invitation to go deeper than the tinsel and wrappings, beyond the presents given and received, to the source of all the good gifts in life. Readers are invited to unwrap gifts that will last, praying the twelve days of Christmas.

Book Short Summary:

The reception of the Gospel of Matthew over two millennia: commentary and interpretation Matthew Through the Centuries offers an overview of the reception history of one of the most prominent gospels in Christian worship. Examining the reception of Matthew from the perspectives of a wide range of interpreters—from Origen and Hilary of Poitiers to Mary Cornwallis and Bob Marley—this insightful commentary explains the major trends in the reception of Matthew in various ecclesial, historical, and cultural contexts. Focusing on characteristically Matthean features, detailed chapter-by-chapter commentary highlights diverse receptions and interpretations of the gospel. Broad exploration of areas such as liturgy, literature, drama, film, hymnody, political discourse, and visual art illustrates the enormous impact Matthew continues to have on Judeo-Christian civilization. Known as ‘the Church’s Gospel,’ Matthew’s text has been the subject of apologetic and theological controversy for hundreds of years. It has been seen as justification for political and ecclesial status quo and as a path to radical discipleship. Matthew has influenced divergent political, spiritual, and cultural figures such as Francis of Assisi, John Ruskin, Leo Tolstoy, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, and Mahatma Gandhi. Matthew’s interest in ecclesiology provides early structures of ecclesial life, such as resolution of community disputes, communal prayer, and liturgical prescriptions for the Eucharist and baptism. A significant addition to the acclaimed Blackwell Bible Commentaries series, Matthew Through the Centuries is an indispensable resource for both students and experts in areas including religious and biblical studies, literature, history, politics, and those interested in the influence of the Bible on Western culture.

Book Short Summary:

This book is about humanity and the realization that instead of a right to life, rather we receive the gift of life. Every gift involves a giver and a recipient. Who or what is the giver? As recipient, I can either accept or reject the gift. What does that mean? Am I a blip in the evolutionary process, or am I a creature burdened or blessed with a purpose in life? And what does that mean?

Book Short Summary:

Gifts: A Study in Comparative Law is the first broad-based study of the law governing the giving and revocation of gifts ever attempted. Gift-giving is everywhere governed by social and customary norms before it encounters the law and the giving of gifts takes place largely outside of the marketplace. As a result of these two characteristics, the law of gifts provides an optimal lens through which to examine how different legal systems engage with social practice. The law of gifts is well-developed both in the civil and the common laws. Richard Hyland's study provides an excellent view of the ways in which different civil and common law jurisdictions confront common issues. The legal systems discussed include principally, in the common law, those of Great Britain, the United States, and India, and, in the civil law, the private law systems of Belgium and France, Germany, Italy, and Spain. Professor Hyland also serves a critique of the dominant method in the field, which is a form of functionalism based on what is called the praesumptio similitudinis, namely the axiom that, once legal doctrine is stripped away, developed legal systems tend to reach similar practical results. His study demonstrates, to the contrary, that legal systems actually differ, not only in their approach and conceptual structure, but just as much in the results.

Book Short Summary:

Andrea Mantegna's Adoration of the Magi is based on one of Christianity's best loved stories: the arrival of the gift-bearing Wise Men at the baby Jesus' birthplace in Bethlehem. While the simple Bible text is usually depicted with sweeping, exotic pageantry, here the subject is rendered with an intimate, close-up focus on the central characters in the scene. In his fascinating study, author Dawson W. Carr examines Mantegna's innovative treatment of the theme in light of the main concerns of his art and the culture of his time. His generously illustrated and detailed analysis provides a clear understanding of this compelling masterpiece, which is one of the most popular and important paintings in the J. Paul Getty Museum.

Book Short Summary:

The present dissertation on Hilary of Poitiers' understanding of theology explores a neglected part of research in our knowledge of the Fathers' theology. The study discusses Hillary's views on theology as they appear in his different writings' and brings together his insights under the headings of Cognitio Dei, Fidei Intelligentia and Dicti Ratio. The first part deals with Hilary's ideas on natural knowledge of God and the possibilities of our human understanding and language in relation to transcendent divine realities. The central part looks at the knowledge given in faith and how according to Hilary the human mind may appropriate and reflect on the same. Finally, Hilary's views on scriptural and theological language are considered.
