Download or read book Visions and Revisions written by Roger Kojecký and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2013-09-05 with total page 165 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Literary texts are more or less obliged to make reference to entities beyond themselves. Drawing on other texts, ideas previously written, or on the resources of language, they make their attempts to communicate, entertain, and enlist sympathy, or even to offer counsel. Some texts profess an a priori vision, others adopt a style of reporting only contingencies. A dialogic relation can be posited between the ideal and the real, heaven and earth, imagination and reason, langue and parole, essence and substance, poetry and prose. The poetic and creative impulse is engaged with an ever present need to purify the dialect of the tribe. The topics in Visions and Revisions reflect writers’ labours with form at whatever distance from the original sources of inspiration. The authors discussed include William Blake, Marilynne Robinson, Salman Rushdie, William Golding, John Irving, David Lodge, Sara Maitland and Hilary Mantel. Verbal by definition, texts make use of other texts and are dependent on the cultural matrix. Readers are also writers in one kind or another. In both modes they may gain impetus or inspiration by re-visioning their origins as well as their ends. This book will offer readers new ways to understand the literary creations of some writers with affinities to the Western spiritual, and specifically Christian, tradition.

This book was released on 2017-06-12 with total page 613 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Handbook systematically charts the trajectory of the English novel from its emergence as the foremost literary genre in the early twentieth century to its early twenty-first century status of eccentric eminence in new media environments. Systematic chapters address ̒The English Novel as a Distinctly Modern Genreʼ, ̒The Novel in the Economy’, ̒Genres’, ̒Gender’ (performativity, masculinities, feminism, queer), and ̒The Burden of Representationʼ (class and ethnicity). Extended contextualized close readings of more than twenty key texts from Joseph Conrad’s Heart of Darkness (1899) to Tom McCarthy’s Satin Island (2015) supplement the systematic approach and encourage future research by providing overviews of reception and theoretical perspectives.

Download or read book Experimentalism as Reciprocal Communication in Contemporary American Poetry written by Elina Siltanen and published by John Benjamins Publishing Company. This book was released on 2016-10-06 with total page 210 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The poems of John Ashbery, Lyn Hejinian and Ron Silliman may seem to offer endless small details of expression, observation, thought and narrative which fail to hang together even from one line to the next. But as Elina Siltanen shows here, this extraordinary flow of uncoordinated detail can stimulate readers to join the poets in a delightful exploration of ordinary language. When readers take a poem in this spirit, they actually begin to read as members of a community: the community not only of themselves and other readers, but also including the poet and other poets, plus all the speakers of the language in which the poem is written. For all these different parties, that language is indeed a shared resource, and the way for readers to get started is simply by recalling or imagining some of the numerous kinds of context in which the given poem’s words-phrases-sentences could, or could not, be successfully used. The rewards for such proactive readers are on the one hand a heightened sense of the subtle interweavings of language and life, and on the other hand a freshly empowered self-confidence. The point being that, within the community of contemporary experimental poetry, poets have no more authority than readers. Rejecting older cultural hierarchies, they present themselves as teasing out the idiomatic serendipities of their own poems together with their readers.

Download or read book Epiphany THE SILVERING written by Sonya Deanna Terry and published by . This book was released on 2015-12-18 with total page 464 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The story-within-a-story continues and a sequence of stunning revelations unfolds in Epiphany's gripping conclusion. The 2008 Global Financial Crisis is looming, a time of losses for some in Rosetta's circle, and the odd astonishing gain. Via the path of mystery, reversals in fortunes and romantic love, Rosetta and her book club unwittingly get involved in a quest for The Silvering: an epoch rumoured to begin in 2019. The world's concept of worth, however, is keeping alive the Cycle of Suffering that body-kings began in the ancient past ... and the chance for a brighter future is fading fast. Beneath the red soil of a southern land lies a glimmer of hope -- a legacy of Norwegian forest-dwellers -- destined to bring about a worldwide epiphany ... but only if two people from two very different standpoints can settle their differences in time to fulfil Lillibridge's mystifying prophecy. Discoveries made about Edward Lillibridge in the British village of Tintagel, letters he wrote to his sister and son, unite Matthew and Rosetta in their desire to glean facts, but between them stands a wall of mistrust that threatens the sprites' noble plans. Each letter adds yet another detail to the tapestry of Lillibridge's 18th-century existence, and Matthew is confronted with an uncanny truth that challenges his perceptions of life and death. '... Sure to become a cult favorite.' Readers' Favorite
Download or read book English Literature Theology and the Curriculum written by Liam Gearon and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 1999-01-10 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The "Theology in Dialogue" Series explores the relationship between theology and different, secular academic disciplines which appear within the degree programs of colleges and universities. Each volume begins with a chapter and a reply, providing a thoughtful justification for the interaction of theology and the particular subject. This is followed by a theoretical analysis of this interaction, and a range of case studies illustrating the situation in the classroom. "English Literature, Theology and the Curriculum" explores the nature and authority of religious writings and their influence on secular literature. What makes it distinctive is the manner in which it investigates the textual dynamic between the two disciplines by combining both theory and case study in a single collection of writings. It discusses interdisciplinary dialogue, offers case studies on literature and theology from Anglo-Saxon verse to the twentieth-century novel, and looks at curriculum considerations. The eminence and breadth of the contributors is outstanding. Praise for English Literature, Theology and the Curriculum: "[A] superbly rich collection...as valuable to those involved in literary studies as to theologians. It breathes life and real engagement." --Times Educational Supplement "Fascinating and scholarly collection...This is an excellent book. Though some of the chapters are better than others, none is a dud. Its contributors and editor are to be congratulated." --Journal of Beliefs and Values "These substantial essays deserve more extensive comment than a brief review permits...Liam Gearon's chapter prompted this reviewer to embark on a reading of [Brian] Moore's work - a rewarding undertaking for which his chapter proved an invaluable guide." --International Journal of Children's Spirituality "Perhaps what is most noteworthy about Liam Gearon's edited volume is that it combines theory with practical applications and concludes with reflections on the implications for teaching....ample food for thought for instructors designing courses in literature, theology, or interdisciplinary subjects." --Teaching Theology

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Education as if people and planet mattered In Transformative Learning, Satish Kumar reflects on the legacy of Schumacher College, a beacon of innovation that fosters an ecological-based, holistic model of higher education built around the college's unique "learn by doing," head, heart, and hands pedagogy. Over fifty current and former instructors and alumni, including Vandana Shiva, David Orr, Kate Raworth, Fritjof Capra, Bill McKibben, Mary Evelyn Tucker, and Jonathon Porritt, paint a rich picture of education for human well-being and the ecological health of the planet. Contributions delve deeply into the nature of transformational learning and holistic education, present a wealth of alumni experiences of working towards an ecological society, and detail the expansion of the Schumacher model to Belgium, Brazil, India, Japan, and beyond. The result is a rich tapestry of ideas and educational methods packed with insights and experience for practitioners and activists looking to build a just, ecological society.
