Dirty Work Ian Rankin and John Rebus Book-by-Book

by Ray Dexter

The unauthorised and ambitiously defintive guide to Ian Rankin and John Rebus...NOW INCLUDING 'EVEN DOGS IN THE WILD'!In 1987 Ian Rankin published the first John Rebus book; even he didn't know what he was unleashing. Nearly thirty years later Rankin and Rebus are the kings of crime fiction, but they are more than that. The books are cultural history of Scotland too.This is the all-purpose handbook to the John Rebus universe. Contained in this volume is everything you could reasonably want to know about the books, their creation and the characters within them, from the birth of the character to the old man staring retirement in the face.The book will answer such questions as: why is Rankin obsessed with Saabs? Why doesn't Siobhan Clarke age but perhaps more importantly it will get to the heart of why we all love John Rebus so much.

Biblical Research: (In defense of "Thrisc")

by Siaosi Tusitala

Self explanatory......enhancements, references, supporting Biblical texts to the original
proposition in my FICTIONAL ("ufology"/religion) proposals. In order to answer possible challenges and amplify how I came to the conclusions advanced.

*No slight intended to the Saints, Apostles or Prophets. The platform wasn't accepting my pen name, so as a tongue in cheek gesture, I decided on "John of Patmos". Simply to get beyond that "block". Since the primary entire text is Biblical text, rightfully "authorship" does belong to all of the contributors inspired to write their "Books". Far superior to my humble attempts.

2,000+ years and the same thinking, reasoning, explanations, actions and reactions of humans as occurs today! When "Ufologists" attempt to bolster their theories and assumptions by weakening human thought, they insult the true history of man as well as mankind.

Seems to me, all of the Apostles, Prophets and Saints, didn't have any problem what so ever, expressing themselves succinctly. In very specific, descriptive language! .Clear, concise, to the point; huh? (Man hasn't changed all that much now has he?)

As with the original description of "Thrisc", "Mankind" does suffer from the most phenomenal case of amnesia imaginable. It takes more than the exclusive interpretations of "Ufologists" to determine the "truth" of it all. My same contention holds; to attempt regaining our "memory" without including ALL of the Bible is not only folly; but ludicrous and insulting as well!

So much of "Ufologies" basic tenants rolled out on a weekly basis on The History Channel is ludicrous, duplicated simply by reading The Old Testament and comprehending. A good portion of their discoveries aren't exactly new information, even as they report it in a manner of "shock value" revelations. i.e. "Giants", contending gods, manipulations and faulty reasoning. Based primarily on "Earth Religions" from our own historical past! But; why would they make things understandable at the expense of what they derive by attempting to make it "mystery"?

They are misleading millions and millions are letting them! That's at the core of both my book and this "pamphlet".

Fa'afati Lavi;
Siaosi Tusitala

The problem with the p.o.d. (Create space) version platform is that I will have to expand it by 10 pages or so. So; that version will be "amplified" with observations that I didn't intend originally. That will be available in a few days.

With the material and manner of presentation; Kindle is a very difficult format to use by virtue of all the numbering, spacing and spelling of words in reference to those times and locals and people. I apologize for that aspect. Simply no way around it.

The point being, to give as much amplified material and explanation and reasoning as was possible to achieve. While remaining within the confinement and restrictions of presentation. The p.o.d. version will be far easier on the eye.

Walden

by Henry David Thoreau

First published in 1854, Walden recounts American philosopher and naturalist Henry David Thoreau's experiences over the course of two years, two months, and two days in a cabin he built near Walden Pond, amidst woodland owned by his friend and mentor Ralph Waldo Emerson, near Concord, Massachusetts. The book is part personal declaration of independence, social experiment, voyage of spiritual discovery, satire, and, ultimately, manual for self-reliance.Walden enjoyed some success upon its release, but still took five years to sell 2,000 copies, and then went out of print until Thoreau’s death in 1862. Despite its slow beginnings, later critics have praised it as an American classic that explores natural simplicity, harmony, and beauty. The poet Robert Frost wrote of Thoreau, "In one book ... he surpasses everything we have had in America."

Wuthering Heights

by Emily Brontë

Considered lurid and shocking by mid-19th-century standards, Wuthering Heights was initially thought to be such a publishing risk that its author, Emily Brontë, was asked to pay some of the publication costs.Wuthering Heights is a wild, passionate story of the intense and almost demonic love between Catherine Earnshaw and Heathcliff, a foundling adopted by Catherine’s father. After Mr Earnshaw’s death, Heathcliff is bullied and humiliated by Catherine’s brother Hindley and wrongly believing that his love for Catherine is not reciprocated, leaves Wuthering Heights, only to return years later as a wealthy and polished man. He proceeds to exact a terrible revenge for his former miseries. The action of the story is chaotic and unremittingly violent, but the accomplished handling of a complex structure, the evocative descriptions of the lonely moorland setting and the poetic grandeur of vision combine to make this unique novel a masterpiece of English literature.A fiend of a book — an incredible monster... The action is laid in hell, — only it seems places and people have English names there. —Dante Gabriel RossettiA monument of the most striking genius that nineteenth-century womanhood has given us. —Clement ShorterThe greatest work of fiction by any man or woman Europe has produced to date. —Anthony LudoviciThere is no “I” in ‘Wuthering Heights’. There are no governesses. There are no employers. There is love, but it is not the love of men and women. Emily was inspired by some more general conception. The impulse which urged her to create was not her own suffering or her own injuries. She looked out upon a world cleft into gigantic disorder and felt within her the power to unite it in a book. —Virginia Woolf

Crime and Punishment

by Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Through the story of the brilliant but conflicted young Raskolnikov and the murder he commits, Fyodor Dostoyevsky explores the theme of redemption through suffering. “Crime and Punishment” put Dostoyevsky at the forefront of Russian writers when it appeared in 1866 and is now one of the most famous and influential novels in world literature.The poverty-stricken Raskolnikov, a talented student, devises a theory about extraordinary men being above the law, since in their brilliance they think “new thoughts” and so contribute to society. He then sets out to prove his theory by murdering a vile, cynical old pawnbroker and her sister. The act brings Raskolnikov into contact with his own buried conscience and with two characters — the deeply religious Sonia, who has endured great suffering, and Porfiry, the intelligent and discerning official who is charged with investigating the murder — both of whom compel Raskolnikov to feel the split in his nature. Dostoyevsky provides readers with a suspenseful, penetrating psychological analysis that goes beyond the crime — which in the course of the novel demands drastic punishment — to reveal something about the human condition: The more we intellectualize, the more imprisoned we become.

Shakespeare’s Oral Certification Examination Annotated: A Book of Revelations

by Steffy Sota

I am a ghost writer.I died July 25, 2015, in Hightstown, New Jersey. My scholarship is the bedrock for the serious study of British drama to 1770. Any graduate student or academic working on the plays or the theatrical culture of this period has to start with me. In addition to my comprehensive Tudor and Stuart Stage, I wrote a wide range of works on Shakespeare and other figures of the English Renaissance. My essay "Shakespeare's Celibate Stage," originally published in the inaugural issue of The New and Improved Shakespeare Survey With Textual Analysis, has been widely reprinted. I edited several works for modern editions, including Othello, Hamlet, All Fools, and The Alchemist.I raised a literary stir when I edited and wrote the preface to a hitherto unknown 1577 text called The Arte of Angling in which I noted several passages that reminded me of Isaac Walton's later The Compleat Angler. A British authority on fishing literature defended Walton, saying, "It seems to me unjust to accuse Izaak Walton of plagiarism because plagiarism did not exist in the 17th century. All authors of that and earlier ages read what they liked and used what they liked without acknowledgment. I immediately agreed!I wrote a wide range of essays on Shakespeare and other dramatists of the English Renaissance. My essay entitled "I Spit My Last Breath at Thee" was originally published in the third issue of The New and Improved Shakespeare Survey With Textual Analysis and has been widely reprinted, referenced, and pirated. I edited several introductory guides for modern readers including The Shakespeare Quiz, The Lover’s Tragedy, and The Luck of the Tristero. My work has been cited by scholars in 15 fields of endeavor over 1000 times. In 2010, ten of my students—Lord Burghley, Fulke Greville, Philip Sidney, Edmund Spenser, Andrew Marvell, John Donne, Emilia Lanyer, Thomas More, Ben Jonson, and Leonard Digges published a festschrift in my honor.Here in Heaven, I have completed my mastepiece of dramatic scholarship: Shakespeare’s Oral Certification Examination Annotated.I was a very intimidating professor—a curmudgeon. My students had to do all of the readings ahead of time, or else I bullied them the whole semester—particularly if I called on them; and they were unprepared. But I made sure that those who were wise enough to take my classes were prepared for scholarship and research in any field.

Drama and Pedagogy in Medieval and Early Modern England (Swiss Papers in English Language and Literature (SPELL) Book 31)

by Elisabeth Dutton

This wide-ranging volume explores relationships between drama and pedagogy in the medieval and early modern periods, with contributions from an international ?eld of scholars including a number of leading authorities. Across the medieval and early modern periods, drama is seen to be a way of dissemi-nating theological and philosophical ideas. In medieval England, when literacy was low and the liturgy in Latin, drama translated and transformed spiritual truths, embodying them for a wider audience than could be reached by books alone. In Tudor England, humanist belief in the validity and potential of drama as a pedagogical tool informs the interlude, and examples of dramatized instruction abound on early modern stages. Academic drama is a particularly preg -nant locus for the exploration of drama and peda-gogy: universities and the Inns of Court trained some of the leading playwrights of the early theatre, but also supplied methods and materials that shaped professional playhouse compositions.

Writing Self, Writing Empire: Chandar Bhan Brahman and the Cultural World of the Indo-Persian State Secretary (South Asia Across the Disciplines)

by Rajeev Kinra

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s new open access publishing program for monographs. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more.Writing Self, Writing Empire examines the life, career, and writings of the Mughal state secretary, or munshi, Chandar Bhan “Brahman” (d. c.1670), one of the great Indo-Persian poets and prose stylists of early modern South Asia.  Chandar Bhan’s life spanned the reigns of four different emperors, Akbar (1556-1605), Jahangir (1605-1627), Shah Jahan (1628-1658), and Aurangzeb ‘Alamgir (1658-1707), the last of the “Great Mughals” whose courts dominated the culture and politics of the subcontinent at the height of the empire’s power, territorial reach, and global influence.  As a high-caste Hindu who worked for a series of Muslim monarchs and other officials, forming powerful friendships along the way, Chandar Bhan’s experience bears vivid testimony to the pluralistic atmosphere of the Mughal court, particularly during the reign of Shah Jahan, the celebrated builder of the Taj Mahal.  But his widely circulated and emulated works also touch on a range of topics central to our understanding of the court’s literary, mystical, administrative, and ethical cultures, while his letters and autobiographical writings provide tantalizing examples of early modern Indo-Persian modes of self-fashioning.  Chandar Bhan’s oeuvre is a valuable window onto a crucial, though surprisingly neglected, period of Mughal cultural and political history.

Sons of the Gods, Children of Earth: Ideology and Literary Form in Ancient Greece

by Peter W. Rose

In this ambitious and venturesome book, Peter W. Rose applies the insights of Marxist theory to a number of central Greek literary and philosophical texts. He explores major points in the trajectory from Homer to Plato where the ideology of inherited excellence—beliefs about descent from gods or heroes—is elaborated and challenged. Rose offers subtle and penetrating new readings of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, Pindar's Tenth Pythian Ode, Aeschylus's Oresteia, Sophokles' Philoktetes, and Plato's Republic.Rose rejects the view of art as a mere reflection of social and political reality—a view that is characteristic not only of most Marxist but of most historically oriented treatments of classical literature. He applies instead a Marxian hermeneutic derived from the work of the Frankfurt School and Fredric Jameson. His readings focus on illuminating a politics of form within the text, while responding to historically specific social, political, and economic realities. Each work, he asserts, both reflects contemporary conflicts over wealth, power, and gender roles and constitutes an attempt to transcend the status quo by projecting an ideal community. Following Marx, Rose maintains that critical engagement with the limitations of the utopian dreams of the past is the only means to the realization of freedom in the present.Classicists and their students, literary theorists, philosophers, comparatists, and Marxist critics will find Sons of the Gods, Children of Earth challenging reading.
