Hard Cover. Very Good. 16mo - 5¾" - 6¾" Tall., George G. Harrap & Co. Ltd., 1920, -Yale University Press (16 Oct 2000)-. First edition. Illustrated. Cloth. Pages edges a little spotted. Very good in dustjacket. This major biography of Thomas Gray (1716-1771), the first in nearly half a century, expands our knowledge of the life of the English poet and our understanding of his personality and influential body of works. Robert L. Mack incorporates recent -- and often radically revisionary -- scholarship on Gray, drawing on developments in eighteenth-century studies and gender studies, as well as on extensive original archival research into the life of the poet and his family. The result is an eloquent and enlightening book, sure to be the definitive biography of this great poet, a forefather of the Romantic Movement. The book provides important new information on Gray's family and background and closely examines the domestic environment of his formative years. By investigating how his father's abuse affected the poet, Mack casts new light tm Gray's personality -- and on the way that personality consistently and invariably informed his writing. The author applies a revised understanding of the psychological and sexual tensions in Gray's life to a close reading of this poetry and correspondence and finds a homoerotic desire lying just beneath the surface of almost all of Gray's important writings, including his "Sonnet" on the death of Richard West, the "Eton Ode", and his masterpiece, "Elegy Written in a Country Church-Yard"., -Yale University Press (16 Oct 2000)-, Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 1988. Soft cover. Very Good., University of Chicago Press, 1988, New Michigan Press. Paperback. New. Paperback. 56 pages. Dimensions: 7.9in. x 4.9in. x 0.4in.At once documentary in its plain-spoken observations and attuned to the romance of place, this chapbook buzzes with people laboring, cowering ranch houses, food courts and failed utopias. A history and projective future of the Plains, Runges poems vibrate with particulars and possibilities. --Megan Kaminski Justin Runges staccato travel narrative migrates across Nebraska, marking its stations, east to west, by way of mile and exit numbers on Interstate 80, the ghosted path of the Oregon, California, and Mormon trails. Disembodied in its vehicle, the thinking eye of these poems passes through the placed and put structures in the ether of the lost prairie as if passing the way stations on the road to Compostela, or Bashos narrow road north. At once a feature article and catchall, an elegy and an invitation to new vision, PLAINSIGHT reports and collects, laments and reflects: Everything is crushed by this sky, as if a vise grip forms from the ground and it. Dark mouth. Posts but no lights. Here the world is recognized by one of its own. As Roman decay was built in, Runge builds in subtle insight, deftly scored: Two functions here: departure and effluvia. --Peter Streckfus This item ships from multiple locations.

Book Description: When Peter Hill, a student at Dundee College of Art, answered an advert in The Scotsman seeking lighthouse keepers, little did he imagine that within a month he would be living with three men he didn't know in a lighthouse on Pladda, a small remote island off the west coast of Scotland. : Hill was nineteen, it was 1973 and, with his head fed by Vietnam, Zappa, Kerouac, Vonnegut, Watergate and Coronation Street, he spent six months on various lighthouses, "keeping" with all manner of unusual and fascinating people. Within thirty years this way of life was to have disappeared entirely. : The resulting book is a charming and beautifully written memoir that is not only a heartfelt lament for Hill's own youth and innocence but also for a simpler and more honest age. : Review: "What makes Stargazing such a beautiful book is that it is more than an elegy to a vanished profession. It is a elegy to youth and to the constellation of dreams, ambitions and anxieties that is more intense at 19 than it can ever be again." (Sunday Herald): "Both an elegy to an extinct way of life and a tribute to the spirit and expertise of the men who embodied this romance of sea and sky." (The Observer): "Few of these books, however, are as wistfully evocative or as thoughtful as Hill's Stargazing." (The Independent): "A passionate account and a fine commemoration of the first profession ever to be made totally redundant." (Bella Bathurst, author of "The Lighthouse Stevensons"): "excellent" (The Scotsman Magazine) : From the Back Cover: "A generous book ... as full of lost dreams as a starry sky on a foggy night" Daily Telegraph: It is 1973 and Peter Hill, his head filled with the Vietnam War, Frank Zappa, Jack Kerouac, the Watergate trial and Coronation Street, is about to spend six months on various remote Scottish lighthouses, "keeping" with all manner of unusual and fascinating people.: This charming and beautifully written account of that time is not only a heartfelt lament for Hill's own youth and innocence but also for a simpler and more honest age.: "Poetic and evocative ... What makes Stargazing such a beautiful book is that it is more than an elegy to a vanished profession. It is an elegy to youth and to the constellation of dreams, ambitions and anxieties that is more intense at 19 than it can ever be again" Sunday Herald: "A gentle comedy of manners, which pitches the green-around-the-gills Hill - an adolescent idealist - into the intrinsically no- nonsense, manly world of the lighthouse" Independent: As read on bbc radio 4: Cover photograph: Courtesy of Photonica: Cover design: Ghost Size: 12.9 x 2 x 19.8 cm. 336 pages.

It is a matter of pleasure and pride to note that Indian English Literature has been making conspicuous progress in recent years. While some celebrated Indian novelists like Salman Rushdie, Arundhati Roy, Kiran Desai and Aravind Adiga have won the Booker Prize, a host of others have won accolades and wide readership in India and abroad. The present anthology aims at presenting an in-depth study of twenty established as well as upcoming writers including: Jayanta Mahapatra, Eunice de Souza, Arun Kolatkar, G.S. Sarat Chandra, Romen Basu, Raja Rao, Chaman Nahal, Ruskin Bond, Arun Joshi, Amitav Ghosh, Meera Syal, Habib Tanvir, Badal Sircar, Chandrasekhar Kambar, Girish Karnad and H.S. Shivaprakash. The topics covered in this anthology include a critique of modernist Indian English poetry; thematic concerns in Jayanta Mahapatra’s poetry; feminine sensibility in the poetry of Eunice de Souza; East-west encounter in Romen Basu’s fiction; alienation and quest for identity in Ruskin Bond’s The Room on the Roof; eclecticism, diasporic displacement, nostalgia and exile in Amitav Ghosh’s fiction; and other themes like human suffering, poverty, violence, loneliness, faith, skepticism, and pangs of Partition that form the subject matter of Indian English literature in general. The five articles dealing with drama, included in this anthology take up theatrical assumptions; a rejection of Western theatrical modes; experimentation; satirical and utopian elements in two of Circar’s fantastical plays; and the plight of marginalised and oppressed women. Since most of the authors included in the present volume for discussion are prescribed in the English syllabi in various Indian universities and studied for M.Phil and Ph.D. degrees, it is hoped that teachers, students and research scholars will find this volume extremely useful. Contents : Preface; 1. Indian English Poetry: A Critical Survey—T.S. Chandra Mouli; 2. Mahapatra’s Poetry: A Critical Appraisal—Rajendra P. Lokhande; 3. A Feminist Reading of Eunice de Souza and Sylvia Plath in Comparative Perspective—Tanushree Nayak; 4. Jejuri: A Song of Ruin—Rajendra P. Lokhande; 5. The Diasporic Poetry of G.S. Sharat Chandra—Basavaraj Naikar; 6. East-West Encounter: A Study of Romen Basu’s Fiction—C. Isaac Jebastine; 7. The Fable Postcolonial: A Reading of Raja Rao’s “India—A Fable”—Abhisek Bhattacharya; 8. An Area of Darkness: A Retrospective Analysis of Chaman Nahal’s Azadi—Elizabeth John; 9. No Room for Individualism in Ruskin Bond’s The Room on the Roof—Savita Dewangan and G.A. Ghanshyam; 1. Quest for Self in Arun Joshi’s The Strange Case of Billy Biswas—Bhupendra Pratap Singh Chauhan; 11. Amitav Ghosh: An Intellectual Amphibian—Binayak Roy; 12. A Geo-Cultural Study of Amitav Ghosh’s The Shadow Lines—Nirmala Pant; 13. Amitav Ghosh’s The Glass Palace: An Elegy for the Diasporic Condition—Rakhi Nara and G.A. Ghanshyam; 14. Trauma and Pain of Partition in Meera Syal’s Anita and Me—Arti Nirmal; 15. Habib Tanvir’s Naya Theatre: A Postcolonial Reading—Shyam Babu; 16.

'.evocation of a city where East met West under the rule of the Ottoman sultans. A microcosm of world history, this Mediterranean port was home for five centuries to one of the most extraordinarily diverse societies in Europe. amid its Roman ruins and Byzantian monastries, its synagogues and mosques, Jewish dock workers and Ukranian slaves rubbed shoulders rubbed shoulders with Greek shopkeepers, Ottoman pachas and albanian brigands. Creeds and languages clashed and mingled in an atmosphere of shared piety and messianic mysticism. How this bustling, cosmopolitan and tolerant imperial world emerged and then disappeared under the pressure of nationalism, fire and two world wars is the subject of this remarkable elegy to what was lost as Europe entered the age of modernity.'.
