Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: I’ll Seize the Day Tomorrow is the story of Jonathan Goldstein’s journey to find some great truth on his road to forty. In a series of wonderfully funny stories, the host of CBC’s WireTap recounts the highs and lows of his last year in his thirties. Throughout the year, Goldstein asks weighty questions that would stump a person less seasoned. For example: What is it about a McRib that drives people crazy? Can we replace extending an olive leaf with extending an olive jar? How much wisdom can we glean from episodes of Welcome Back, Kotter? His friends and family, many of them known through their appearances on WireTap, weigh in with hilarious results as Goldstein eats, sleeps, and watches bad TV all the way to his date with destiny.

Book excerpt: Volume VII of the Cambridge History of American Literature examines a broad range of American literature of the past half-century, revealing complex relations to changes in society. Christopher Bigsby discusses American dramatists from Tennessee Williams to August Wilson, showing how innovations in theatre anticipated a world of emerging countercultures and provided America with an alternative view of contemporary life.

John Burt examines writers of the American South, describing the tensions between modernization and continued entanglements with the past. Wendy Steiner examines the postmodern fictions since 1970, and shows how the questioning of artistic assumptions has broadened the canon of American literature. Finally, Cyrus Patell highlights the voices of Native American, Asian American, Chicano, gay and lesbian writers, often marginalized but here discussed within and against a broad set of national traditions.

Download or read Writers and Thinkers PDF, written by Daniel Fuchs and published by Transaction Publishers. This book was released on 2015-09-30 with total page 209 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a collection of critical essays that integrate literature and ideas. Daniel Fuchs presents the writer’s individuality as artist and thinker, focusing on the writer’s interaction within a wide range of cultural, political, and historical periods and situations representative of the modern period. The essays reflect a progression that goes beyond chronology or historical survey in the consistency and interrelation of the literary and cultural themes explored and the references within them. The book is built around writers who are of central concern to the author. It does not pretend to be a comprehensive framework for analyzing modernism. Fuchs first deals with high modernism, in discussions of Hemingway and Stevens, who in different ways critique tradition and collapsing values. The essays that follow deal with the “contemporary,"and here the focus is mainly on American Jewish writers and their cultural impact after modernism. The author’s stance is in relation not only to these traditions but to others that might be thought antagonistic: the formalism of the New Critics and the deconstructionism that reduces the author to a replaceable variable in the dialects of cultural power relations. Fuchs pays tribute to the former, illustrating wider points in literary, socio-cultural, and political history. The overall emphasis on these “extrinsic"matters underscores the book’s appeal to a wide audience.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Rood Der: 13: Poking the Universe. Rodney has it all under control, even when the extremely large tarantula scrambles out from beneath his bed, and the guy in the mirror starts signalling, and the elephant-sized giant shakes his neck and spine until something is going to snap, Rodney has it all under control. Or maybe not. Be careful what you dream, because you might not be able to wake up. How deep are we, immersed in this world we call reality? How many turtles down do we go, in this discombobulated, mixed-metaphor, rabbit-hole world? Their world might be based on Ayn Rand, her writings, philosophies, and her U.S. Presidency, but how dense are their numbers compressed, and for how long will their simulation even run? This little group has been provided an exit, but would anyone be rude enough to dare and leave their very own reality? Take the Rude Dare, and Cross over, where data is data, through the Red Door. From the author of Vestigial Surreality comes the new serial novel, Rood Der.

Download or read The Rub iy t of Omar Khayy m Balfour Edition PDF, written by Norman A Clark and published by Norman A Clark. This book was released on with total page 204 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: It would be difficult to overstate the popularity of Omar Khayyám's Rubáiyát. Since it was fist published in 1859, it has been translated into 70 languages; appeared in at least 1300 different editions, illustrated by 150 plus artists and set to music by 100 composers. A reviewer in the Bookman considered Constable's 1920 Art Deco edition of the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyám to be one of the most beautiful of the many editions of 'Omar' to have ever been published. The early 20th century was a Golden Age for lavish editions of the poem illustrated by the most accomplished artists of the day. Balfour's stunning Art Deco style, gloriously decadent and risqué as it is, carries a strong echo of Beardsley. His remarkable suite of 38 illustrations epitomizes an the era of opulence, extravagance and a new found freedom of expression following the radical social changes caused by the First World War. Books such as these, and particularly the Balfour edition of the Rubáiyát, are extremely rare these days. Balfour's illustrations have scarcely been seen at all since the book was first published. This eBook aims to redress the balance somewhat since it contains the full suite of Balfour's original illustrations facing quatrains from FitzGerald's first version of his translation, exactly as they appeared in the 1920 print edition. There is also a supporting text of biographical notes concerning Omar Khayyám, FitzGerald and Ronald Balfour plus the texts for all five versions of FitzGerald's translations.
