The Man Charles Dickens: A Victorian Portrait

by Edward Wagenknecht

Charles Dickens is one of Britain’s best loved authors.But who was the man behind The Pickwick Papers and Oliver Twist.Edward Wagenknecht’s widely acclaimed “psychograph” of Charles Dickens answers those questions.The Dickens who emerges is a man of many parts — author, husband, father, editor, social reformer, businessman, and, last but not least, a man who was a man regardless of the criteria used to judge him. The completed portrait is that of genius, its varied interests, its abounding energy, and its achievements.“As The Man Charles Dickens leaves my typewriter for the second time,” says the author, “it says what I now wish to say about its subject as well as I am able to say it … Nor can I say good-bye to Dickens a second time without recording my present judgment t...

Feeling Is Believing: Tangible Poems

by Dwayne Gray

This is the third book of poetry published by Dwayne Gray who is the author of "Mirror of poems" and "Poeticolors". Like his previous books, "Feeling is believing" aims at relating to the readers in the deepest emotional way. This book in addition to relating to readers aims at breaking the barriers of racialism and prejudice that limits our progress as humans and poisons our youth till this day. It aims to show us that the emotions we express on a day to day basis are shared among us all and our similarities outweigh our differences immensely. We all can relate to the way each other may feel at times and although we may have different opinions at times we all have the common foundation of emotions. This book was written in the belief that this world can be a much better place if we can a...

1984 George Orwell (Book Analysis): Reading the Novel in Post-Trump Context

by Shafqat Mushtaq

The question is: Why is suddenly '1984' a must-read? The book tries to answer in post-Trump context. In fact, 1984 is not one of the greatest works of George Orwell for nothing. This vibrant analysis presents the realization of George Orwell`s prophecies of imminent doom archived in his monumental dystopian and prescient novel, 1984, in the context of the aftermath of the election of Donald Trump as the president of America.The Post-Trump context presents a horrific picture of:a) blatant governmental controlb) constant and severe kind of surveillancec) distortion of history to meet political endsd) rise of fascism throughout the worldAdding to the title 'post-Trump context' does not mean these brazen distortions are the handiwork of Trump alone, nor does it seek to attribute the horrible i...

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 ...

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 abou...

The Institution of Criticism

by Peter Uwe Hohendahl

German radicals of the 1960s announced the death of literature. For them, literature both past and present, as well as conventional discussions of literary issues, had lost its meaning. In The Institution of Criticism, Peter Uwe Hohendahl explores the implications of this crisis from a Marxist perspective and attempts to define the tasks and responsibilities of criticism in advanced capitalist societies. Hohendahl takes a close look at the social history of literary criticism in Germany since the eighteenth century. Drawing on the tradition of the Frankfurt School and on Jürgen Habermas's concept of the public sphere, Hohendahl sheds light on some of the important political and social forces that shape literature and culture. The Institution of Criticism is made up of seven essays origina...

I am a ghost writer.I died in Santa Monica, California on October 24, 1991.Following a stroke at a family reunion in Tallahassee, Florida in September 1989, my health declined requiring me to use a wheelchair. Following another stroke in early October 1991, my right arm was paralyzed causing me ongoing pain as the muscles began to atrophy. I also suffered problems with the sight in my right eye and found communicating in full sentences difficult. During an appointment with my doctor, I had a cardiopulmonary arrest and died in the doctor's office shortly afterwards.At around the age of 14, I came to the conclusion that religion was "nonsense." How could I take seriously a God-image that requires I prostrate myself every seven days and praise it? It's not true that I don't believe in God. I ...

Off the Road and Over the Cuckoo's Nest: A Literary History of the Counterculture

by Mickey Harper

In the years following World War II, the Beat Generation began a literary revolution that changed American culture profoundly. Literature, music, fashion, art... none of it would ever be the same again. The fifties and sixties were a vibrant time of social upheaval, when art flourished against a turbulent backdrop. This optimism gave way to the cynicism of the seventies, and another cultural transition most famously portrayed by writer Hunter S. Thompson.In this fun-yet-scholarly chapbook, Mickey Harper explores the history of the American counterculture from Kerouac to Thompson and all the landmarks in between....

It Came From Beneath the Slush Pile: 20 Kinds of Stupid: An Anthology of Idiot Heroes and Ridiculous Heroines

twenty fatally flawed flash stories by Holly Lisle and studentsIf there’s one thing more fun than writing awesome stories, it’s occasionally indulging in the worst excesses and writing awesomely bad stories.

Chaos Bound: Orderly Disorder in Contemporary Literature and Science

by N. Katherine Hayles

N. Katherine Hayles here investigates parallels between contemporary literature and critical theory and the science of chaos. She finds in both scientific and literary discourse new interpretations of chaos, which is seen no longer as disorder but as a locus of maximum information and complexity. She examines structures and themes of disorder in The Education of Henry Adams, Doris Lessing’s Golden Notebook, and works by Stanislaw Lem. Hayles shows how the writings of poststructuralist theorists including Barthes, Lyotard, Derrida, Serres, and de Man incorporate central features of chaos theory....

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 poin...

Madame Bovary on Trial

by Dominick LaCapra

In 1857, following the publication of Madame Bovary, Flaubert was charged with having committed an "outrage to public morality and religion." Dominick LaCapra, an intellectual historian with wide-ranging literary interests, here examines this remarkable trial. LaCapra draws on material from Flaubert’s correspondence, the work of literary critics, and Jean-Paul Sartre’s analysis of Flaubert. LaCapra maintains that Madame Bovary is at the intersection of the traditional and the modern novel, simultaneously invoking conventional expectations and subverting them....

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 ...

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...

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....

Echoes of Desire variously invokes and interrogates a number of historicist and feminist premises about Tudor and Stuart literature by examining the connections between the anti-Petrarchan tradition and mainstream Petrarchan poetry. It also addresses some of the broader implications of contemporary critical methodologies. Heather Dubrow offers an alternative to the two predominant models used in previous treatments of Petrarchism: the all-powerful poet and silenced mistress on the one hand and the poet as subservient patron on the other....

Greatness Engendered: George Eliot and Virginia Woolf (Reading Women Writing)

The egotism that fuels the desire for greatness has been associated exclusively with men, according to one feminist view; yet many women cannot suppress the need to strive for greatness. In this forceful and compelling book, Alison Booth traces through the novels, essays, and other writings of George Eliot and Virginia Woolf radically conflicting attitudes on the part of each toward the possibility of feminine greatness. Examining the achievements of Eliot and Woolf in their social contexts, she provides a challenging model of feminist historical criticism....
