Book excerpt: Amid a childhood steeped in tragedy, murder, and abuse clouded by the familys alcoholism and inner demons, one boy, crowned with an innate gift imposed on him by the miracle of human creation, at the age of fourteen, separates himself from the family ignominies and to stave off poverty. He is determined to override and erase the memory of his abusers and his grandfathers debacle and the tragedy that resulted from it--his self-confidence prevails. The combination of forbidding and bliss convey a diverse story: from a group of religious people who sexually abused him, to the center of the glamorous celebrity world, to Mother Nature that, in a spectacular display, demonstrated his future, and how he comes to meet the President of America, Pope John XXIII, the King of Thailand, and numerous Hollywood luminaries.

How to Misunderstand Tolkien

Publisher : McFarland
Release Date :
ISBN : 1476686947
Pages : 202 pages
Rating Book: 4.7/5 (476 users)

Download or read book How to Misunderstand Tolkien written by Bruno Bacelli and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2022-09-02 with total page 202 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: J.R.R. Tolkien is an author beloved by many, but people forget the hostile reception of his work from several literary critics, who despised (and some who continue to despise) him and his readers. Other intellectuals and critics have a more positive opinion of his work, but some read aspects of his books or his beliefs to fit their own agendas. Over the decades, scholars have claimed that Tolkien represents a myriad of (sometimes contradictory) political positions. Whether these scholars act out of disdain for Tolkien or from a simple misread of his works, the outcome is a muddled distortion of who Tolkien really was. This book peels back the discourse in an attempt to reveal the true nature of an author who so often defies categorization. Using all possible nuance, chapters explore the villains of Lord of the Rings, its female heroines and its moral compass, as well as its definitions of heroism and failure. This book hopes to provide a uniquely accurate and objective assessment of one of the most misunderstood writers of our time.

WomenÕs Comedic Art as Social Revolution

ISBN : 0786488581
Pages : 267 pages
Rating Book: 4.8/5 (786 users)

Download or read book WomenÕs Comedic Art as Social Revolution written by Domnica Radulescu and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2011-12-08 with total page 267 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Though comic women have existed since the days of Baubo, the mythic figure of sexual humor, they have been neglected by scholars and critics. This pioneering volume tells the stories of five women who have created revolutionary forms of comic performance and discourse that defy prejudice. The artists include 16th-century performer Isabella Andreini, 17th-century improviser Caterina Biancolelli, 20th-century Italian playwright Franca Rame, and contemporary performance artists Deb Margolin and Kimberly Dark. All create humor that subverts patriarchal attitudes, conventional gender roles, and stereotypical images. The book ends with a practical guide for performers and teachers of theater.

Giambattista Vico

Pages : 203 pages
Rating Book: 4.4/5 (349 users)

Download or read book Giambattista Vico written by Cecilia Miller and published by Springer. This book was released on 2016-07-27 with total page 203 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The theories of language and society of Giambattista Vico (1668-1744) are examined in this textual analysis of the full range of his theoretical writings, with special emphasis on his little-known early works. Vico's fundamental importance in the history of European ideas lies in his strong anti-Cartesian, anti-French and anti-Enlightenment views. In an age in which intellectuals adopted a rational approach, Vico stressed the nonrational element in man - in particular, imagination - as well as social and civil relationships, none of them reducible to the scientific theories so popular in his time.

Rating Book: 4.2/5 (527 users)

Download or read book Philosophy in Ancient Rome written by Charles Vergeer and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2018-12-17 with total page 254 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book describes the philosophy of ancient Rome in an original, convincing and, at the same time, captivating manner. Roman philosophy is both a continuation of Greek philosophy and a substantially different way of thinking. The predominant examples dealt with in this book are language and time. Emphasis is laid upon the interweaving of philosophy and religion. The principal figures here are Cicero and the Greek philosopher Plotinus; the rise of Christianity is shown against the background of the philosophy of those days.

A Dictionary of English and Italian Equivalent Proverbs

ISBN : 1466007931
Pages : 280 pages
Rating Book: 4.6/5 (466 users)

Download or read book A Dictionary of English and Italian Equivalent Proverbs written by Teodor Flonta and published by DeProverbio.com. This book was released on 2011-10-29 with total page 280 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This dictionary assembles 2,513 English proverbs and their Italian equivalents. Equivalent proverbs are those which express the same concept, be it literally, such as “Love is blind” = “L’amore è cieco,” or with completely different words, such as“Every cloud has a silver lining” = “Non tutto il male viene per nuocere.” The Dictionary is a very useful reference tool for scholars of the two languages, for researchers working in various associated fields such as linguistics, literature, folklore, anthropology, psychology, sociology, history, and for workers in newer areas such as advertising and contemporary media. The Dictionary is also of interest to diplomats and politicians who try to improve their communication by sharing ideas formulated in some common meaningful expressions; it will assist interpreters and translators, and teachers and students for whom it is important to understand not only what the target culture expresses in the same way as their own, but also what is formulated in a different way. The Dictionary is also of benefit to non-professionals who, for the sheer enjoyment of it, wish to savour the wisdom, wit, poetry and the colourful language of proverbs.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Examining the key works of Buzzati and Morante, Siddell looks at two coexisting and conflicting approaches: one which defined place as an outcome of individual perception, and another in which place is understood as an arrangement of locations separate from the individual. The progression of Buzzati's texts from plausible indications of location to perception-bound space is examined, as is Morante's use of enclosed spaces as the basis of a conceptualisation of elsewhere, paying attention to the contrast and interaction between opposing constructs of place.

Book excerpt: This collection of essays explores the literature of Italian immigrants in Canada and their children by focusing on the central role that themes of migration hold in their work. Addressing topics such as the oral roots of Canadian immigrant writing, the changing place of women in works of the Italian diaspora, and the persistent difficulties of translation, this work provides an international perspective on some of the most pressing questions in the study of literature today. In addition to Canadian works, the work of immigrant writers from Australia and other countries is also considered, producing nuanced observations of cultural differences and affinities.
