Language between God and the Poets: Ma‘na in the Eleventh Century (Berkeley Series in Postclassical Islamic Scholarship Book 2)

by Alexander Key

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. In the Arabic eleventh-century, scholars were intensely preoccupied with the way that language generated truth and beauty. Their work in poetics, logic, theology, and lexicography defined the intellectual space between God and the poets. In Language Between God and the Poets, Alexander Key argues that ar-Raghib al-Isfahani, Ibn Furak, Ibn Sina (Avicenna), and Abd al-Qahir al-Jurjani shared a conceptual vocabulary based on the words ma‘na and haqiqah. They used this vocabulary to build theories of language, mind, and reality that answered perennial questions: how to structure language and reference, how to describe God, how to construct logical arguments, and how to explain poetic affect.

Culture and Cognition: The Boundaries of Literary and Scientific Inquiry

by Ronald Schleifer

This groundbreaking book challenges the disciplinary boundaries that have traditionally separated scientific inquiry from literary inquiry. It explores scientific knowledge in three subject areas—the natural history of aging, literary narrative, and psychoanalysis. In the authors' view, the different perspectives on cognition afforded by Anglo-American cognitive science, Greimassian semiotics, and Lacanian psychoanalysis help us to redefine our very notion of culture.Part I historically situates the concepts of meaning and truth in twentieth-century semiotic theory and cognitive science. Part II contrasts the modes of Freudian case history to the general instance of Einstein's relativity theory and then sets forth a rhetoric of narrative based on the discourse of the aged. Part III examines in the context of literary studies an interdisciplinary concept of cultural cognition.Culture and Cognition will be essential reading for literary theorists, historians and philosophers of science; semioticians; and scholars and students of cultural studies, the sociology of literature, and science and literature.

Poetics as a Theory of Everything

by Ira Livingston

Drawing on poetics and visual art as well as philosophy and the science of complex systems, Ira Livingston's Poetics as a Theory of Everything explores what our seemingly most artificial conceptual constructs (such as poems and metaphors) and even the most illegitimate offspring of the human brain (such as drug-induced hallucinations) can tell us about the natural processes that shape living creatures and other systems.Reviewers have described Livingston's previous books as "lucid, playful, and reader-friendly," "exhilarating and moving," and "high-level discursive performance art full of conceptual kicks."Poetics as a Theory of Everything begins by considering current obsessions with both sustainability and imminent apocalypse-- symptoms of the postmodern condition-- and follows them down to their roots, which extend all the way into our common predicament as living beings. Subsequent chapters take up constraint (a fundamental creative principle in poetry, games-- and thermodynamics) and meaning (understood as a Rube Goldberg-like process whereby systems interact with their fellow systems, subsystems, and environments). The book ends lyrically with a series of prose sonnets and illustrations that develop these principles.Throughout the book, text and images embody a principle shared by systems theory and Buddhist/Daoist thought: that the same process that leads to the fragmentation and dissolution of form also leads to its emergence, consolidation and elaboration.

The Young Philosophers: On Media

by Antheya

The young need to know. They are ever more curious about the world, yet the questions of profound significance to human nature and condition are rarely discussed in a manner they would understand and materialize in daily life through thinking and practical action. And that is exactly what youth inherently wants to do. These series of philosophical books represent an attempt to critically analyze reality from the perspective of the young minds, who brave to think their own thoughts!

Picture-Book Professors: Academia and Children's Literature (Elements in Publishing and Book Culture)

by Melissa Terras

How is academia portrayed in children's literature? This Element ambitiously surveys fictional professors in texts marketed towards children, who are overwhelmingly white and male, tending to be elderly scientists. Professors fall into three stereotypes: the vehicle to explain scientific facts, the baffled genius, and the evil madman. By the late twentieth century, the stereotype of the male, mad, muddlehead, called Professor SomethingDumb, is formed in humorous yet pejorative fashion. This Element provides a publishing history of the role of academics in children's literature, questioning the book culture which promotes the enforcement of stereotypes regarding intellectual expertise in children's media. This title is also available, with additional material, as Open Access.

Constructions of Cancer in Early Modern England: Ravenous Natures (Palgrave Studies in Literature, Science and Medicine)

by Alanna Skuse

This book is open access under a CC-BY licence. Cancer is perhaps the modern world's most feared disease. Yet, we know relatively little about this malady's history before the nineteenth century. This book provides the first in-depth examination of perceptions of cancerous disease in early modern England. Looking to drama, poetry and polemic as well as medical texts and personal accounts, it contends that early modern people possessed an understanding of cancer which remains recognizable to us today. Many of the ways in which medical practitioners and lay people imagined cancer – as a 'woman's disease' or a 'beast' inside the body – remain strikingly familiar, and they helped to make this disease a byword for treachery and cruelty in discussions of religion, culture and politics. Equally, cancer treatments were among the era's most radical medical and surgical procedures. From buttered frog ointments to agonizing and dangerous surgeries, they raised abiding questions about the nature of disease and the proper role of the medical practitioner.

The Academic Book of the Future

by Rebecca E. Lyons

This book is open access under a CC-BY licence.What makes a book 'academic'? What spaces, physical and digital, can they be found in? How are they made, bought, and read? These questions are tackled by a cross-section of thirteen experts from the fields of bookselling, publishing, university libraries, and academic research in this volume of essays, which was produced in conjunction with the team from the AHRC/British Library Academic Book of the Future Project as an accelerated publishing challenge for the first ever Academic Book Week. The topics include campus bookshops and bookselling, the role of national libraries, Open Access, the Research Excellence Framework, and publishing innovation. The approaches explore the realities of the present and venture all the way through to possible futures. There is something here for everyone who is connected to academic books – however these are defined, and whatever shape they are read in.

Writing Self, Writing Empire: Chandar Bhan Brahman and the Cultural World of the Indo-Persian State Secretary (South Asia Across the Disciplines)

by Rajeev Kinra

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s new open access publishing program for monographs. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.Writing Self, Writing Empire examines the life, career, and writings of the Mughal state secretary, or munshi, Chandar Bhan “Brahman” (d. c.1670), one of the great Indo-Persian poets and prose stylists of early modern South Asia.  Chandar Bhan’s life spanned the reigns of four different emperors, Akbar (1556-1605), Jahangir (1605-1627), Shah Jahan (1628-1658), and Aurangzeb ‘Alamgir (1658-1707), the last of the “Great Mughals” whose courts dominated the culture and politics of the subcontinent at the height of the empire’s power, territorial reach, and global influence.  As a high-caste Hindu who worked for a series of Muslim monarchs and other officials, forming powerful friendships along the way, Chandar Bhan’s experience bears vivid testimony to the pluralistic atmosphere of the Mughal court, particularly during the reign of Shah Jahan, the celebrated builder of the Taj Mahal.  But his widely circulated and emulated works also touch on a range of topics central to our understanding of the court’s literary, mystical, administrative, and ethical cultures, while his letters and autobiographical writings provide tantalizing examples of early modern Indo-Persian modes of self-fashioning.  Chandar Bhan’s oeuvre is a valuable window onto a crucial, though surprisingly neglected, period of Mughal cultural and political history.

Why Kafka Is Not Kafkaesque

by Paul Johnston

Kafka's stories are famous for their mysterious, somewhat sinister character, but what do they really mean? This short, readable book gives you a chance to explore four of Kafka's best known works and understand better what his writing is all about. Whether you have never read Kafka or read him a long time ago, it offers you a thought-provoking way into his work. Kafka's writing can be funny as well as intriguing, but there is certainly much more to it than what is captured in the over-used word "Kafkaesque".

Job, Boethius, and Epic Truth

by Ann W. Astell

Calling into question the common assumption that the Middle Ages produced no secondary epics, Ann W. Astell here revises a key chapter in literary history. She examines the connections between the Book of Job and Boethius' s Consolation of Philosophy—texts closely associated with each other in the minds of medieval readers and writers—and demonstrates that these two works served as a conduit for the tradition of heroic poetry from antiquity through the Middle Ages and into the Renaissance. As she traces the complex influences of classical and biblical texts on vernacular literature, Astell offers provocative readings of works by Dante, Chaucer, Spenser, Malory, Milton, and many others.Astell looks at the relationship between the historical reception of the epic and successive imitative forms, showing how Boethius's Consolation and Johan biblical commentaries echo the allegorical treatment of" epic truth" in the poems of Homer and Virgil, and how in turn many works classified as "romance" take Job and Boethius as their models. She considers the influences of Job and Boethius on hagiographic romance, as exemplified by the stories of Eustace, Custance, and Griselda; on the amatory romances of Abelard and Heloise, Dante and Beatrice, and Troilus and Criseyde; and on the chivalric romances of Martin of Tours, Galahad, Lancelot, and Redcrosse. Finally, she explores an encyclopedic array of interpretations of Job and Boethius in Milton's Paradise Lost, Paradise Regained, and Samson Agonistes.

Burn: Emotion on Fire

My life has been quite the roller coaster ride and I have the poems to prove it. These are the people, places, and things that “BURN” the most.

Franz Kafka: The Necessity of Form

by Stanley Corngold

In Stanley Corngold’s view, the themes and strategies of Kafka’s fiction are generated by a tension between his concern for writing and his growing sense of its arbitrary character. Analyzing Kafka’s work in light of "the necessity of form," which is also a merely formal necessity, Corngold uncovers the fundamental paradox of Kafka’s art and life. The first section of the book shows how Kafka’s rhetoric may be understood as the daring project of a man compelled to live his life as literature. In the central part of the book, Corngold reflects on the place of Kafka within the modern tradition, discussing such influential precursors of Cervantes, Flaubert, and Nietzsche, whose works display a comparable narrative disruption. Kafka’s distinctive narrative strategies, Corngold points out, demand interpretation at the same time they resist it. Critics of Kafka, he says, must be aware that their approaches are guided by the principles that Kafka’s fiction identifies, dramatizes, and rejects.

Nabokov: The Mystery of Literary Structures

by Leona Toker

Vladimir Nabokov described the literature course he taught at Cornell as "a kind of detective investigation of the mystery of literary structures." Leona Toker here pursues a similar investigation of the enigmatic structures of Nabokov's own fiction. According to Toker, most previous critics stressed either Nabokov’s concern with form or the humanistic side of his works, but rarely if ever the two together. In sensitive and revealing readings of ten novels, Toker demonstrates that the need to reconcile the human element with aesthetic or metaphysical pursuits is a constant theme of Nabokov’s and that the tension between technique and content is itself a key to his fiction. Written with verve and precision, Toker’s book begins with Pnin and follows the circular pattern that is one of her subject’s own favored devices.

Tainted Souls and Painted Faces: The Rhetoric of Fallenness in Victorian Culture (Reading Women Writing)

by Amanda Anderson

Prostitute, adulteress, unmarried woman who engages in sexual relations, victim of seduction—the Victorian "fallen woman" represents a complex array of stigmatized conditions. Amanda Anderson here reconsiders the familiar figure of the fallen woman within the context of mid-Victorian debates over the nature of selfhood, gender, and agency. In richly textured readings of works by Charles Dickens, Elizabeth Gaskell, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, among others, she argues that depictions of fallen women express profound cultural anxieties about the very possibility of self-control and traditional moral responsibility.

The Cosmic Web: Scientific Field Models and Literary Strategies in the Twentieth Century

by N. Katherine Hayles

From the central concept of the field—which depicts the world as a mutually interactive whole, with each part connected to every other part by an underlying field— have come models as diverse as quantum mathematics and Saussure’s theory of language. In The Cosmic Web, N. Katherine Hayles seeks to establish the scope of the field concept and to assess its importance for contemporary thought. She then explores the literary strategies that are attributable directly or indirectly to the new paradigm; among the texts at which she looks closely are Robert Pirsig’s Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Nabokov’s Ada, D. H. Lawrence’s early novels and essays, Borges’s fiction, and Thomas Pynchon’s Gravity’s Rainbow.

After the April 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora in Indonesia, global temperatures dropped and a rainy, monsoon-like drizzle settled in over Northern Europe. In a holiday villa on the shores of Lake Geneva, a young English poet and his lover, the guests of another poet, discouraged from outdoor pursuits, sat discussing the callousness of nature and speculating about the fashionable subject of "galvanism." Was it possible to reanimate a corpse? The villa was Byron's. The other poet was Shelley. His fiancée, 19-year-old Mary Shelley (née Godwin), was in post-partum distress.   Byron, inspired by a book of supernatural tales, suggested that each member of the party should write a ghost story to pass the time.Initially, Mary Shelley didn’t feel up to Byron's challenge. Then, she said, she had a dream about a scientist who "galvanizes" life from the bones he finds in charnel houses: "I saw – with shut eyes, but acute mental vision – I saw the pale student of unhallowed arts kneeling beside the thing he had put together. I saw the hideous phantasm of a man stretched out, and then, on the working of some powerful engine, show signs of life, and stir with an uneasy, half vital motion."Young Mary took the prize, with her tale of eccentric scientist Victor Frankenstein, who creates a grotesque creature in an unorthodox scientific experiment. Frankenstein became a bestseller and a Gothic classic that still resonates with readers two centuries later.But with like many great works of art, Frankenstein was initially misunderstood. The first reviews were decidedly mixed. An anonymous review in The Literary Panorama and National Register published June 1, 1818 dismissed Shelley’s work as ‘a feeble imitation of one that was very popular in its day.’ Other periodicals were kinder. Writing in Blackwood's Edinburgh Magazine on 20 March 1818, Walter Scott praised the unusual Gothic Romance as a “tale, though wild in incident, is written in plain and forcible English, without exhibiting that mixture of hyperbolical Germanisms with which tales of wonder are usually told.”Frankenstein and the Critics presents a selection of the most prominent reviews from the time of Frankenstein’s publication. Also included is Mary Shelley’s uncensored 1818 text often labeled ‘Frankenstein 1818’ presented in its unabridged entirety. This is the original, 1818 text. In 1831, the more traditionally first "popular" edition in one volume appeared.This version of the story was heavily revised by Mary Shelley who was under pressure to make the story more conservative, and included a new, longer preface by her, presenting a somewhat embellished version of the genesis of the story. This edition tends to be the one most widely read now but many scholars prefer the 1818 text, arguing that it preserves the spirit of Shelley's original publication.

Sword of Peace: A Journey From Fear to Faith (Sword of Münster Series Book 1)

by Louisa M Bauman

What is the secret of the hidden meetings, which are held in the woods at night? Anna had hoped to escape the violence of the Reformation when she moved to Amsterdam. But now, in November 1531, Charles V has sent his Spanish officials to this ‘nest of heretics’ in the Netherlands, determined to rid his empire of all those who refuse to attend the state church. The obstinate shall be executed unless they swear allegiance to the Holy Roman Emperor and the Catholic church, and citizens must report any disloyal activity they notice or suffer the same fate. But Anna can hardly betray Maeyken, her only friend in Amsterdam. The last thing Anna will do is listen to the Anabaptists, let alone join the traitorous sect! If Charles V succeeds, the Anabaptists will be annihilated. Especially the leaders of the new faith, such as Adriaen, a new widower. Anna is embarrassed to be falling for Adriaen, not believing he could ever return her love. Besides, as an Anabaptist preacher, he is unlikely to survive the purging of heretics.In Sword of Peace, struggle with Anna on her journey to find faith, peace, truth and love in this sweeping and romantic historical novel, set during the Reformation in the Netherlands. In those turbulent days, the seeds for the present-day Amish and Mennonites were planted. This story is perfect for fans of historical thrillers and romance alike.

Bread and Circuses: Theories of Mass Culture As Social Decay

by Patrick Brantlinger

Lively and well written, Bread and Circuses analyzes theories that have treated mass culture as either a symptom or a cause of social decadence. Discussing many of the most influential and representative theories of mass culture, it ranges widely from Greek and Roman origins, through Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Ortega y Gasset, T. S. Eliot, and the theorists of the Frankfurt Institute, down to Marshall McLuhan and Daniel Bell. Brantlinger considers the many versions of negative classicism and shows how the belief in the historical inevitability of social decay—a belief today perpetuated by the mass media themselves—has become the dominant view of mass culture in our time. While not defending mass culture in its present form, Brantlinger argues that the view of culture implicit in negative classicism obscures the question of how the media can best be used to help achieve freedom and enlightenment on a truly democratic basis.

Not You It's Me (A Boston Love Story Book 1)

by Julie Johnson

#1 BEST SELLER IN HUMOROUS FICTION!

Gemma Summers is unlucky in love.
She’s known it since third grade, when her first crush blew a spitball into her hair, and a decade-long string of bad dates, boring sex, and abysmal morning-afters has done nothing to improve her prospects.
But when a random radio call-in contest lands her courtside tickets to the hottest playoff game of the season, Gemma’s luck may finally be on the upswing — even if it doesn’t exactly seem like it when the dreaded jumbotron kiss-cam lands on her and her date, who’s too busy ignoring her to notice…

Chase Croft doesn’t date.
Despite ample opportunity as Boston’s most eligible bachelor, the reformed bad-boy would rather put his energy into taking over the family business than weed through a world of gold-diggers to find an honest woman.
But when the beautiful girl in the seat next to him becomes a courtside spectacle at the hands of her loser boyfriend, he can’t help but step in and save the day.

One kiss. Two strangers. No strings attached.
The only problem is, Chase is used to getting whatever he wants. And after kissing Gemma once, he knows one thing…
He wants more.


NOT YOU IT’S ME is a full-length, standalone contemporary romance about a girl who doesn’t believe in love… and the man who changes her mind. Due to sexy-times and strong language, it is intended for readers 17 and up.

Gilbert: The Man Who was G. K. Chesterton

by Michael Coren

“Of all the studies of G.K. I have read, this is the best, deepest and most nearly complete.” Bernard Levin, The Sunday TimesGilbert Keith Chesterton, known as G.K.Chesterton was born on the 29th of May, 1874 on a quiet street between Holland Park and Kensington, a place he came to love all his life.Although Chesterton attended University, he left without obtaining a degree.In 1901, he married Frances Blogg – a marriage that was to last his lifetime. Despite their happy marriage, there were no children. Frances’ health was weak from the start. However, Chesterton loved her and ensured he did all he could to make her happy.But at what cost to his own emotional stability? This was evident to his friends. But what about Frances?Chesterton started his career working for publishers and trying his hand in journalism. Soon he had his own weekly column. He was a poet, a social critic, a historian, and novelist. Always displaying humour — both in his writing and throughout life. His literature covered a myriad of subjects — ones he had strong viewpoints on: government, theology, philosophy, amongst many others. Chesterton’s literature is enjoyed by many and found to be inspirational. Michael Coren captures Chesterton’s life and his work in this book. The insights into Chesterton’s life and work are both honest and informative. Praise for Gilbert:“Michael Coren’s book is indispensable for helping us better understand the private side of this wonderful man.” Jay P. Corrin, Boston University“The definitive work on Chesterton and one of the finest literary biographies in years.” Paul William Roberts, Toronto Star“A book of stature, wisdom and perception. Chesterton has long needed a modern, sensitive treatment and here at last is that study. A very great book.” Lord Longford“A noble book that has greatly raised the quality of Chesterton biography, above all at its most intimate level. It is a book which reveals the joy and grief, the hope and fear, the doubt and faith, within the man who was G.K. Chesterton.” The Chesterton ReviewMichael Coren is a broadcaster, columnist and author of ten books, including biographies of C. S. Lewis, J. R. R. Tolkien, H. G. Wells, and Arthur Conan Doyle. He is also host of the television show Michael Coren Live — described by BBC Radio as “one of the best talk-shows in North America.”

Before long, he has identified the deceased as Krister Berggren, a bachelor from the mainland who has been missing for months. All signs point to an accident—until another brutalized corpse is found at the local bed-and-breakfast. But this time it is Berggren’s cousin, whom Thomas interviewed in Stockholm just days before.As the island’s residents reel from the news, Thomas turns to his childhood friend, local lawyer Nora Linde.

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 this volume, I point out many figures which appear in masterworks of children's picture storybooks, so that they may be appreciated and savored, and their patterns emulated in your own work.This ebook is a print replica.Download this book and get a second book FREE.

Did you find it all too hard to bear after a while? Perhaps you’d like to explore a little more.So come, see what the void has to offer.

Language of the Snakes: Prakrit, Sanskrit, and the Language Order of Premodern India (South Asia Across the Disciplines)

by Andrew Ollett

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s Open Access publishing program. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.Language of the Snakes traces the history of the Prakrit language as a literary phenomenon, starting from its cultivation in courts of the Deccan in the first centuries of the common era. Although little studied today, Prakrit was an important vector of the kavya movement and once joined Sanskrit at the apex of classical Indian literary culture. The opposition between Prakrit and Sanskrit was at the center of an enduring “language order” in India, a set of ways of thinking about, naming, classifying, representing, and ultimately using languages. As a language of classical literature that nevertheless retained its associations with more demotic language practices, Prakrit both embodies major cultural tensions—between high and low, transregional and regional, cosmopolitan and vernacular—and provides a unique perspective onto the history of literature and culture in South Asia.

A READER'S STORY: My Love for Lionel Dahmer's Book about his Son, Jeff

by George Stietz

In the Spring of 1994, the author was a 21 year-old university student with a high grade point average, yet no overall sense of direction--a secret he tried to hide from all who knew and admired him. Longing for an unreachable young woman two years his senior, he discovered two things in earnest: Crown Royal Whiskey and Lionel Dahmer's book: A FATHER'S STORY. The latter not only taught him that the etymology of human behavior is a phenomena largely cloaked in mystery, it also showed him that sometimes no bridge can link people's psyches: Even those who are father and son.The former, unfortunately, demonstrated that alcohol induced aggression and rage are certainly not something reserved for Jeffrey Dahmer and other serial killers. The FORMER is another story, however. This book is about the LATTER, so join the writer on his journey as he applauds Dr. Dahmer's attempt to put into words the origins of that which are unspeakable.*George Stietz received his Bachelor's in Legal Studies and his Master's Degree in Justice Administration.

The Life of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

by Michael Coren

‘Here is Conan Doyle the doctor, Conan Doyle the adventurer, Conan Doyle the journalist and, above all, Conan Doyle the spiritualist. The intention of the present book is to describe Conan Doyle the man, the composite of all of these aspects and of many more.’Michael Coren presents his portrayal of a renaissance man, using his memoir, fiction and the little biographical information we have about Conan Doyle to give as full a portrait as he is able.Aged twenty-seven, his idea for a detective originally named Sherrinford comes to fruition as Sherlock Holmes, with his partner John Watson (‘a drab, quiet name for this unostentatious man’). Coren documents the reaction to the death of Sherlock, the reappearance in ‘The Hound of the Baskervilles’ and the other stories Conan Doyle wrote, such as Rodney Stone about boxing and stories starring Professor Challenger.After qualifying as a doctor Conan Doyle had sent stories to magazines, then travelled for a while across Africa during the Boer War, in which service he was awarded his knighthood.Coren also details Conan Doyle’s personal life: his wife Louise passed away from illness and he married his second wife Jean Leckie, the object of his true desire. He suggested reforms to the armed forces and to divorce laws, and stood unsuccessfully as an MP. Most interestingly of all, he received letters from members of the public asking for his help in solving crimes which had happened to them.He gained much success in the United States, was an admirer of the baseball he had watched in Canada and was in demand as a writer of stories in England. Joseph Bell, Conan Doyle’s inspiration, praised prose which was ‘free from padding’. He begun to develop an interest in spiritualism in the wake of the Great War, and Coren writes of the séances he attended and his short-lived friendship with Harry Houdini.This biography is a brilliant illustration of the man behind the detective, in which a fan of Sherlock will learn a great deal.‘An excellent new study...(with) merits of sober accuracy, sympathy and stylishness’ – Peter Lewis, Daily Mail ‘An extremely lively study’ – The Herald ‘An agreeably friendly biography...Coren follows the life diligently...and presents a fair picture of this good man’ – Allan Massie, Daily Telegraph ‘A revealing and deeply sympathetic study which should open the eyes of those who know him only as the begetter of Sherlock Holmes...Coren is an astute critic of Conan Doyle’s literary work.’ – Francis Wheen, Catholic Herald‘Readers whose only knowledge of Conan Doyle is that he invented Sherlock Holmes should take a deep breath before opening this cogent and well-ordered account of an eventful life’ – Miles Donald, Literary ReviewMichael Coren is an author, award-winning columnist and radio personality who hosted a long-running programme on Canadian television. He has written biographies of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkein and H.G. Wells, and has written at length on Christianity and Islam.

C. S. Lewis: The Man Who Created Narnia

by Michael Coren

The Chronicles of Narnia are some of the best-known and well-loved classic children’s books in the English language, and C. S. Lewis, their creator, was a truly remarkable man. Clive Staples Lewis liked to be known simply as Jack. Plain Jack Lewis, his friends called him, those men who also taught at the renowned British universities of Oxford and Cambridge. Lewis was described by some as looking a little like an ordinary working man or even a forester, with his ruddy complexion and plump face. Yet his words were not those of any forester, for here was the finest writer of children's stories and the most popular author of books about Christianity of his age.Growing up, books filled Lewis’ house, piled in spare rooms, hallways, anywhere, everywhere. Lewis was allowed to read anything he liked, encouraged in this by his mother, very much the intellectual of the family.When Lewis was still a child his beloved mother died and he was sent across the Irish Sea to boarding school in England — the strict and forbidding Wynyard House.He missed his family, his home, and the freedom of his life in Northern Ireland. He was isolated and frightened. But one thing happened at the awful school that benefitted Lewis and changed his entire life: he began to embrace Christianity.Coren tells of the fascinating details of the childhood and youth of Lewis, one that was, in Lewis' own words, full of “long corridors, attics explored in solitude, sunlit rooms and endless books”. He continues with Lewis’ studies at Oxford, where his interest in the Christian religion grew, his subsequent celebrated teaching career with the same university, and his wonderful friendships with other great writers like J. R. R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, G. K. Chesterton and George Sayer.Michael Coren, an expert on the life and writings of Lewis, presents an engrossing biography which especially focuses on how Lewis created his wonderful Narnia tales."Serious and thoughtful. Immensely readable." — Kirkus Reviews "Riveting, insightful, well-researched. Coren is to be commended for bringing his skills as biographer and as a superb story-teller to this subject." — Ottawa Citizen"A book for all readers. Coren brings Lewis to life in a study which should send adults and children scurrying to bookshelves." — London Free PressMichael Coren is also the author of biographies of G. K. Chesterton, H. G. Wells, G. S. Lewis, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. He is a radio and television broadcaster and syndicated columnist based in Toronto.
