How to Write a Children's Picture Book Volume III: Figures of Speech

by Eve Heidi Bine-Stock

Recommended by writing instructors and award-winning authors.Many of us think of children's picture books as being written mostly with simple declarative sentences. What an eye-opener to learn that they are actually filled with delightful figures of speech. I am not talking here about the common figures of speech we learn about in grade school: simile, onomatopoeia, alliteration, hyperbole and personification. I am talking about more subtle and sophisticated figures of speech which we may not even recognize as figures at all (until they are pointed out to us), but their use gives stories a charm and freshness that stands up to repeated readings. These figures have names which are eminently forgettable but the figures themselves make the stories in which they appear eminently memorable. In ...

That Scoundrel Émile Dubois: Or the Light of Other Days

by Lucinda Elliot

When Sophie de Courcy, the often foolishly romantic and bored but patient companion to the Dowager Countess of Ruthin, marries her long-time hero, the dashing but rascally French émigré Émile Dubois, she has more excitement than she ever wanted as she is catapulted into Gothic adventure with man vampires and time warps.

With the help of her dauntless maid Agnes – who combines Tarot reading with a no-nonsense attitude - and whose own love interest is Émile’s swaggering valet and former accomplice, Georges – Sophie must come to terms with Émile’s criminal past and help free him from the machinations of their evil neighbours the Kenrick’s.

Set during the French Revolution in North Wales and in war torn France, this story is full of lively humour and...

Heretics (Xist Classics)

Chesterton is on a mission in Heretics to disband the trends of the early 20th century. He dismisses the notion of ‘art for art’s sake’ and gives his opinion on many religious matters.

Living with Disfigurement in Early Medieval Europe (The New Middle Ages)

by Patricia Skinner

This book is open access under a CC-BY 4.0 license. This book examines social and medical responses to the disfigured face in early medieval Europe, arguing that the study of head and facial injuries can offer a new contribution to the history of early medieval medicine and culture, as well as exploring the language of violence and social interactions. Despite the prevalence of warfare and conflict in early medieval society, and a veritable industry of medieval historians studying it, there has in fact been very little attention paid to the subject of head wounds and facial damage in the course of war and/or punitive justice. The impact of acquired disfigurement —for the individual, and for her or his family and community—is barely registered, and only recently has there been any atte...

The Works of Hrotsvit of Gandersheim (Women in Print)

by Hrotsvitha and David H. Price

Historical assessments of Hrotsvit of Gandersheim are liberally adorned with the word "first." After all, she was the first major medieval woman author, the first German woman writer in print, the first post-classical playwright, as well as the first German to write a literary work on the Faust-theme, and she is sometimes said to have been the first woman historian.These are landmarks to be sure. Yet Hrotsvit's place in cultural history is even more significant than such an impressive number of firsts might indicate, for she has reemerged to become a living part of European literature, a singular phenomenon for a tenth-century author. She is not only the earliest writer, of either gender, to have a secure place in the German literary canon, but also the only author from her period whose li...

Some Reflections Upon Marriage (Women in Print)

by Mary Astell and John A. Dussinger

"If all Men are born Free, how is it that all Women are born Slaves?" For many parts of the world such a bold protest resonates as tellingly today as it did three hundred years ago in England when Mary Astell (1666-1731) confronted the appalling moral and legal subordination of women, rich and poor alike, who entered into matrimony with the cards stacked heavily in the husband's favor. It is Astell's unstinting recognition of the arbitrary restraints imposed on women and her vigorous writing on their behalf that make her one of the earliest English feminists in history. Although prominent in her lifetime as the author of a number of treatises on women's education as well as on theological, philosophical, and political subjects, Astell was nearly forgotten by the nineteenth century. Howeve...

The First Class: Transits of Brazilian Literature Abroad

by Pedro Meira Monteiro and Carola Saavedra

What does a professor – Brazilian or otherwise – think and do on the first day of class, standing before a group of “foreign” students to talk about Brazilian literature? This apparently simple question that gave rise to the essays gathered in this book opens a series of other questions: Who is this professor? How did he or she go about planning that first class? What challenges do professors face when teaching the literature of a country different from that of their students, and in a language which is, in most cases, likewise unfamiliar to them? The result is not just an excellent sampling of experiences and reflections – it is also an homage, an elegy to those who have transformed Brazilian literature itself into a globetrotting, thought-provoking literary character.que trata ...
