by Jill Walker Rettberg

This book is open access under a CC BY license.Selfies, blogs and lifelogging devices have become important ways in which we understand ourselves.

Rettberg explores topics like the meaning of Instagram filters, smartphone apps that write your diary for you, and the ways in which governments and commercial entities create their own representations of us from the digital traces we leave behind as we go through our lives....

Getting Past Coetzee

by Hedley Twidle

Ten years ago, I was commissioned by a famous poet-editor to write a profile of Coetzee for a London review. At the time, the offer was a big break, and could have led to great things. I was fresh out of university and the editor was high-up at Faber and Faber, a talent scout for The New Yorker. But it never got written.Instead of providing a controlled and judicious survey of the oeuvre, I found myself obsessed by minor details on the outskirts of his work. The grim memoir Youth (2002) had just appeared and I wrote at length about the stockings full of clotting cheese that young "John" hangs up in his kitchen - proof of his extreme thriftiness, in life as in prose. The fish fingers that he fries in olive oil in a London garret, trying to emulate the Mediterranean diet of Ford Madox Ford: ...

"The War as it Should Have Been": Metaphor and Mental Spaces in David Jones' In Parenthesis

by Keely Kiczenski

In this comprehensive essay, I re-frame David Jones' modern First World War epic poem In Parenthesis while deploying theories of conceptual metaphor, mental spaces, and perception of time, much as Jones re-framed the War within his distinct style of form and narrative. Rich with illustrated figures, my argument is not only built from the careful consideration of ideas put forth by literary critics like T.S. Eliot, but it is also grounded with work by renowned cognitive scientists like George Lakoff and (monk riddle teller) Gilles Fauconnier. The ability to analyze literature systematically and in bio-psychological context is a true innovation, much like David Jones’ exquisite poem itself.
The field of cognitive poetics encourages us to experiment in literary criticism. Psycho...

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 ...

KUBLA KHAN: A VISION IN A DREAM & CHRISTABEL

by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

"Christabel" is a long narrative poem in two parts. Coleridge planned three additional parts, but these were never completed. The story of Christabel concerns a central female character of the same name and her encounter with a stranger called Geraldine, who claims to have been abducted from her home by a band of rough men. Coleridge aimed to write Christabel using an accentual metrical system, based on the count of only accents: even though the number of syllables in each line can vary from four to twelve, the number of accents per line never deviates from four."Kubla Khan; or, A Vision in a Dream" is a poem written by Samuel Taylor Coleridge. According to Coleridge's Preface the poem was composed one night after he experienced an opium-influenced dream after reading a work describing Xan...
