Mind The Gap: And 2 Other Mysteries, Jared Brown Mar 2016

Mind The Gap: And 2 Other Mysteries, Jared Brown

Jared Brown

Mind the Gap, a novel, concerns a murder that occurs in London in 2001. Eight students from a university, accompanied by two faculty members, take a "theatrical tour" of London and Stratford, during which they see and discuss twelve plays. But their tour is ruined when one member of the group is murdered. The two other mysteries in Mind the Gap and 2 Other Mysteries, "The Value of Books" and "Midtown Detectives," are relatively brief -- longer than short stories, but decidedly shorter than novels. They both present intriguing tales of suspense, and both are written in styles that contrast markedly ...

Hermann Hesse’S 'Siddhartha' As Divine Comedy, Bryan Bardine Mar 2016

Hermann Hesse’S 'Siddhartha' As Divine Comedy, Bryan Bardine

Bryan Bardine

Comedy has always been more difficult to define and pin down than tragedy. Part of the difficulty may be that comedy is, by its very nature, more protean than tragedy: comedy often takes delight in breaking the rules. Moreover, tragedy has been so memorably described in The Poetics that Aristotle may have unintentionally molded the shape of tragedy through the ages. There are different kinds of tragedy, to be sure, but they are usually variations of a similar theme and form. Perhaps because Aristotle's treatise on comedy has been lost, comedy was left free to develop in numerous ways ...


Flying Carpets, Hedy Habra Dec 2015

Flying Carpets, Hedy Habra

Hedy Habra

Surveying what appears as familiar ground, Hedy Habra's Flying Carpets plunge deep into the bygone and the irrecoverable. Steeped in childhood memories of Egypt and Lebanon, and intensified in the act of fictional recollection, Habra's stories are at once joyous and tragic, witty and profound. In Habra we have a Shehrazad of our times, not one trying to save her life, but one intent to bring enchantment, gravitas, and sensitivity to ours. This is a book full of marvels, beautifully written. --Khaled Mattawa, author of Amorisco and Tocqueville

Hedy Habra's Flying Carpets is a collection of enchantments ...


The Apocalyptic Adventures Of Private Winfred Scott Biegle, Clifford Davidson Dec 2015

The Apocalyptic Adventures Of Private Winfred Scott Biegle, Clifford Davidson

Clifford Davidson

A modernist novel, describing a dystopian military in the imaginary dictatorship of Atlantis, written more than a half century ago when the author was a conscript in the army during the Cold War. As editor of the post newspaper at the Granite City Engineer Depot, Clifford Davidson was in a privileged position for observing the military mentality of the time, in particular the propensity for bullying intended to turn men into mindless killing machines. From other soldiers he was also able to hear disturbing stories at first hand about World War II and the very recent Korean War, only concluded ...

Violence And Beauty: Jacques Lacan's 'Antigone', Andrew Slade Nov 2015

Violence And Beauty: Jacques Lacan's 'Antigone', Andrew Slade

Andrew R. Slade

If Jean-Luc Nancy was able to write in "The Sublime Offering," in 1993, that the sublime was fashionable (25), then academic and theoretical tastes have changed, and beauty has come back in style. Throughout the late 1990s, cultural critics and theorists undertook a return to beauty against the fashion for the sublime that returned in twentieth-century theory and philosophy of art in works by Jean-François Lyotard and Theodor Adorno, among others. The interest in the sublime has been grounded in violent historical experience. Not that violence was new, or that the kinds of violence that the twentieth century bequeathed us ...

Non--Lections On How To Write A Scene In A Pretty Good Playiting, Gene Washington Apr 2015

Non--Lections On How To Write A Scene In A Pretty Good Playiting, Gene Washington

Gene Washington

The author of some 10 or 12 performed plays gives some thoughts on how to write a scene in a play. All elements of a play, character, action and so on, are in a scene. Scene, rather than act, is (as ancient writers have it, including Shakespeare) the most basic element in a play. The author describes how a scene can be seen as a "reaction" to things going on in the world, especially the various relationships between people. An analogy is given to things arranged as a "heap" to a unity---an emergent, something more than the sum of its ...

Father's Philosophy : Poems, Patrick Randolph

'Objectless Love': The Vagabondage Of Colette And Katherine Mansfield, Deborah Pike Dec 2014

'Objectless Love': The Vagabondage Of Colette And Katherine Mansfield, Deborah Pike

Deborah Pike

Katherine Mansfield and Literary Influence identifies Mansfield’s involvement in six modes of literary influence - Ambivalence, Exchange, Identification, Imitation, Enchantment and Legacy. In so doing, it revisits key issues in Mansfield studies, including her relationships with Virginia Woolf, John Middleton Murry and S. S. Koteliansky, as well as the famous plagiarism case regarding Anton Chekhov. It also charts new territories for exploration, expanding the terrain of Mansfield's influence to include writers as diverse as Colette, Evelyn Waugh, Nettie Palmer, Eve Langley and Frank Sargeson.

Hemingway "Hills Like White Elephants": Epistemic, Nonepistemic And Nonseeing, Gene Washington Dec 2014

Hemingway "Hills Like White Elephants": Epistemic, Nonepistemic And Nonseeing, Gene Washington

Gene Washington

This essay, a though-experiment, explores the value of reading literary texts (with the example of Hemingway's "Hills Like White Elephants") from the point of view of epistemic, nonepistemic and nonseeing. Epistemic seeing is defined as seeing with "belief-content" nonepistemic seeing without it. The technique is to examine each example of the word "seeing" (or one of the members of its family, "look, watch," "blink") and let it "lead" you to the object, its contest, and implications in the story as a whole..


Disillusionment In War Literature, Esmeralda Kleinreesink Oct 2014

Disillusionment In War Literature, Esmeralda Kleinreesink

Esmeralda Kleinreesink

After the First World War, disillusionment is the idea that is most commonly associated with the experience of being a soldier. The romantic ideal of war as a glorious, honourable event, that will turn you into a man is shattered due to the gruesome nature of modern warfare. Or so it is often said. But is it true? Did this feeling of disillusionment start only after the First World War, or are there indications for an earlier start? Is it a country-dependent phenomenon, or one that can be found all over the Western world? And if so, is this feeling ...

Wild Rides And Wildflowers: Philosophy And Botany With Bikes, Scott Abbott, Sam Rushforth Mar 2014

Wild Rides And Wildflowers: Philosophy And Botany With Bikes, Scott Abbott, Sam Rushforth

Scott Abbott

This book bears only passing resemblance to any book we have read to date. We hope it is comical, perhaps in ways that will remind readers of NPR’s “Car Talk,” where listeners share the good natured and sometimes acidic banter between brothers who also know a lot about cars. We hope it is moving, not in the extended ways Terry Tempest Williams often achieves, but through surprising comments and stories that accompany the bike rides and that, over the course of four years, add up to a larger picture. We hope it is informative, not in the comprehensive way ...

Fragments Of Inner Architecture: Novel, Gene Washington

FRAGMENTS OF AN INNER ARCHITECTURE This novel, which won second place in this year's Original Writing Contest (2014) sponsored by the state of Utah, expands on Calvino's statement that "The events of a life are arranged in an order that is not chronological. But, rather, corresponds to an inner architecture."
