Lorca - a Dream of Life by Leslie Stainton Summary

With a rare blend of grace, warmth, and scholarship, Leslie Stainton raises the stakes of our appreciation for the greatest of Spain's modern poets, Federico Garca Lorca. Drawing on fourteen years of research; more than a hundred letters unknown to prior biographers; exclusive interviews with Lorca's friends, family, and acquaintances; and dozens of newly discovered archival material, Stainton has brought her subject to life as few writers can. She describes his carefree childhood in rural Andalusia; his residencies in Madrid and Granada, then in New York, Havana, and Buenos Aires; his potent interaction with other Spanish artists, such as Salvador Dal, Luis Buuel, and the composer Manuel de Falla; and, finally, Stainton shows how Lorca's marginal political activity during the Spanish Civil War still cost him his life. Throughout, Stainton meticulously but unobtrusively relates the oeuvre to the life. Her biography is quickly becoming the standard one-volume work on the poet.

The Poetics of Apocalypse by Martha Nandorfy Summary

In June of 1929, Federico Garcia Lorca left his native Spain on a journey that would become a vision-quest through New York City, the Vermont countryside, and Cuba. While he failed miserably at learning English during his brief sojourn at Columbia University, he nonetheless created a powerful new poetic idiom to voice his perceptions of social injustice and apocalyptic retribution. Guided by the duende, liminal principle of creativity and death, Lorca represents New York as dystopia cum Armageddon, ultimately redeemed by the Blacks of Harlem and the telluric forces unleashed to retake the decadent, soulless civilization of North America.

Arts - Therapies - Communication European Arts Therapy by Line Kossolapow,Sarah Scoble Summary

The theoretical and practical formation of European Art Therapy as a discipline requires establishing communication with theorists and practitioners in other continents or countries. Accomplishing this requires two approaches. A more theoretical approach uses European Art Therapy as a research and teaching tool. A more practical approach seeks experiences in common, as well as quantitative and qualitative investigations, which in turn lead to theoretical-methodical conclusions. The contributions in this volume employ both approaches. Individual articles cannot, of course, fully describe the extent of art therapy throughout Europe, but they are a source of information and inspiration for readers. Whether theorists or practitioners, readers will find articles that address their particular concerns, enabling them to find tools they can use in their own specific work. Line Kossolapow teaches educational science at Muenster University, Germany. Sarah Scoble teaches at the School for Applied Psychosocial Studies at the University of Plymouth. Dianne Waller is professor at Goldsmiths College, University of London.

Las fuentes de la historia del arte en la época contemporánea by Laura Arias Serrano Summary

Aunque no cabe duda de que la obra de arte es la fuente originaria y primordial de todo el proceso creador, éste no podrá entenderse ni contextualizarse sin la consulta de otras fuentes contemporáneas al artista, que, a modo de eslabones de una cadena, dan sentido a la obra, ayudan a desentrañar las circunstancias que rodearon su creación,y actúan como espejo crítico donde se hace balance de todo el proceso. Las fuentes se convierten así en herramientas o instrumentos de trabajo, a veces difícilmente clasificables (sobre todo en la época contemporánea), que aportan al investigador información orientada a descubrir, resolver o dar forma y sentido al tema que le ocupa. Las fuentes de la historia del arte en la época contemporánea , además de paliar el vació bibliográfico que actualmente existe en este campo, surge con el propósito de servir de apoyo a la investigación y a la docencia. A la investigación, porque las 'fuentes' son los instrumentos de los que se sirven el estudioso para dar forma a la historia, y en este caso a la historia del arte. No importa el tema, pues este repertorio de 540 fuentes (ordenadas por tipologías y cronología), lo que le brinda son 'pistas' para empezar sus búsquedas y, en definitiva, una 'metodología' de trabajo y una 'estructura básica' sobre la que ir montando todo el aparato documental de la investigación. Apoyo a la docencia, porque este libro se convierte, por un lado, en insustituible material de consulta y estudio para el alumno, y por otro, en un utilísimo repertorio documental para el profesor a la hora de preparar sus clases, hacer un comentario de texto en el aula o asesorar al estudiante en sus trabajos. Un libro que, además, consigue ir más allá, pues no sólo aporta referencias a textos teóricos, técnicos o legales sino que ofrece amenos comentarios relativos a novelas, poemas, libros de viajes, biografías, repertorios iconográficos, entrevistas, películas... que contextualizan y documentan al artista y a su obra.

Admissions by Henry Marsh Summary

The 2017 National Book Critics Circle (NBCC) Finalist, International Bestseller, and a Kirkus Best Nonfiction Book of 2017! “Marsh has retired, which means he’s taking a thorough inventory of his life. His reflections and recollections make Admissions an even more introspective memoir than his first, if such a thing is possible.” —The New York Times "Consistently entertaining...Honesty is abundantly apparent here--a quality as rare and commendable in elite surgeons as one suspects it is in memoirists." —The Guardian "Disarmingly frank storytelling...his reflections on death and dying equal those in Atul Gawande's excellent Being Mortal." —The Economist Henry Marsh has spent a lifetime operating on the surgical frontline. There have been exhilarating highs and devastating lows, but his love for the practice of neurosurgery has never wavered. Following the publication of his celebrated New York Times bestseller Do No Harm, Marsh retired from his full-time job in England to work pro bono in Ukraine and Nepal. In Admissions he describes the difficulties of working in these troubled, impoverished countries and the further insights it has given him into the practice of medicine. Marsh also faces up to the burden of responsibility that can come with trying to reduce human suffering. Unearthing memories of his early days as a medical student, and the experiences that shaped him as a young surgeon, he explores the difficulties of a profession that deals in probabilities rather than certainties, and where the overwhelming urge to prolong life can come at a tragic cost for patients and those who love them. Reflecting on what forty years of handling the human brain has taught him, Marsh finds a different purpose in life as he approaches the end of his professional career and a fresh understanding of what matters to us all in the end.

Fire in the Belly by Cynthia Carr Summary

“[Fire in the Belly is] unimprovable as a biography-thorough, measured, beautifully written, loving but not uncritical-as a concentrated history of his times, and as a memorial.” -Luc Sante, Bookforum David Wojnarowicz was an abused child, a teen runaway who barely finished high school, but he emerged as one of the most important voices of his generation. He found his tribe in New York's East Village, a neighborhood noted in the 1970s and '80s for drugs, blight, and a burgeoning art scene. His creativity spilled out in paintings, photographs, films, texts, installations, and in his life and its recounting-creating a sort of mythos around himself. His circle of East Village artists moved into the national spotlight just as the AIDS plague began its devastating advance, and as right-wing culture warriors reared their heads. As Wojnarowicz's reputation as an artist grew, so did his reputation as an agitator-because he dealt so openly with his homosexuality, so angrily with his circumstances as a Person With AIDS, and so fiercely with his would-be censors. Fire in the Belly is the untold story of a polarizing figure at a pivotal moment in American culture-and one of the most highly acclaimed biographies of the year.

Ordesa by Manuel Vilas Summary

”A meditation on yearning, solitude, and self; a soul storm, a mirage of phantom figures . . . a book of deep reckoning.” —The New York Times Book Review The #1 international bestselling phenomenon—a profound and riveting story of love, loss, and memory. A man at a crossroads in the middle of his life considers the place where he’s from, and where his parents have recently died. In the face of enormous personal tumult, he sits down to write. What follows is an audacious chronicle of his childhood and an unsparing account of his life’s trials, failures, and triumphs that becomes a moving look at what family gives and takes away. With the intimacy of a diarist, he reckons with the ghosts of his parents and the current specters of his divorce, his children, his career, and his addictions. In unswervingly honest prose, Vilas explores his identity after great loss—what is a person without a marriage or without parents? What is a person when faced with memories alone? Already an acclaimed poet and novelist in Spain, Vilas takes his work to a whole new level with this autobiographical novel; critics have called it “a work of art able to cauterize pain.” Elegiac and searching, Ordesa is a meditation on loss and a powerful exploration of a person who is both extraordinary and utterly ordinary—at once singular and representing us all—who transforms a time of crisis into something beautiful and redemptive.

A Short History of Decay by E. M. Cioran Summary

E. M. Cioran confronts the place of today's world in the context of human history—focusing on such major issues of the twentieth century as human progress, fanaticism, and science—in this nihilistic and witty collection of aphoristic essays concerning the nature of civilization in mid-twentieth-century Europe. Touching upon Man's need to worship, the feebleness of God, the downfall of the Ancient Greeks and the melancholy baseness of all existence, Cioran's pieces are pessimistic in the extreme, but also display a beautiful certainty that renders them delicate, vivid, and memorable. Illuminating and brutally honest, A Short History of Decay dissects Man's decadence in a remarkable series of moving and beautiful pieces.

Dare to Drop the Pose by Craig Groeschel Summary

Is the REAL you getting lost because the FAKE you is just so annoyingly impressive? “Stepping onto the platform to preach that morning, I admitted to myself that I was not a pastor first, but a regular, scared, insecure, everyday guy whose life had been changed by Jesus. And if Jesus really loved me as I was (I knew He did), then why should I go on trying to be someone I wasn’t?” Why DO we fake it so much? Why do we spend so much time trying to please everyone else and make so little effort trying to please God? When Craig Groeschel asked himself those questions, he couldn’t come up with a good answer. So one day he decided to drop the act and start getting real. With that one choice, his life began to change in a big way. And yours can, too. Craig’s passionate, funny, warts-and-all confessions and the lessons he learned will help you find you own path to authentic living and a deeper relationship with God.

The Hite Report by Shere Hite Summary

A reproduction of the classic text, unavailable now for more than a decade, with a new introduction by the author. The Hite Report, first published in 1976, was a sexual revolution in six hundred pages. To answer sensitive questions dealing with the most intimate details of women's sexuality, Hite's innovation was simple: she asked women, a lot of them, everything--and published the results. One hundred thousand women, ages fourteen to seventy-eight, were asked what they do and don't like about sex; how orgasm really feels, with and without intercourse; how it feels not to have an orgasm during sex; the importance of clitoral stimulation and masturbation; and to name the greatest pleasures and frustrations of their sexual lives, among many other questions. The Hite Report declares that orgasm is easy and strong for women, given the right stimulation; that most women have orgasm most easily during masturbation or clitoral stimulation by hand; that sex as we define it is a cultural institution, not a biological one; and that attitudes must change to include the stimulation women desire.

“Spectacular...An absorbing and distinguished work...The House of the Spirits with its all-informing, generous, and humane sensibility, is a unique achievement, both personal witness and possible allegory of the past, present, and future of Latin America.” —The New York Times Book Review The House of the Spirits, the unforgettable first novel that established Isabel Allende as one of the world’s most gifted storytellers, brings to life the triumphs and tragedies of three generations of the Trueba family.

When their daughter Blanca embarks on a forbidden love affair in defiance of her implacable father, the result is an unexpected gift to Esteban: his adored granddaughter Alba, a beautiful and strong-willed child who will lead her family and her country into a revolutionary future. One of the most important novels of the twentieth century, The House of the Spirits is an enthralling epic that spans decades and lives, weaving the personal and the political into a universal story of love, magic, and fate.
