Lettre à ma fille by Maya Angelou Summary

Préface de Dinaw Mengestu Dédié à celle qu’elle n’a jamais eue, Lettre à ma fille est une succession de courts textes décrivant les souvenirs qui ont façonné la vie exceptionnelle de Maya Angelou. Féministe avant l’heure, et après une enfance et une adolescence marquée par la violence, elle écrit avec le cœur de millions de femmes qu’elle considère comme ses sœurs de combat. La littérature la sauvera et l’amènera à être la première étudiante noire d’une école privée. Puis elle fréquentera le milieu intellectuel noir-américain et deviendra une grande militante de la condition des femmes noires. C’est grâce à l’écrivain James Baldwin qu’elle se mettra à écrire après la mort de Martin Luther King et deviendra l’auteure que l’on connaît aujourd’hui. Dans ce captivant récit, l’auteure nous fait partager ses combats et les épreuves qui ont forgé son caractère dans la compassion et le courage. Maya Angelou fut poète, écrivaine, actrice, enseignante et réalisatrice. En 2013, en tant que militante des droits civiques américains, elle a reçu le National Book Award pour « service exceptionnel rendu à la communauté littéraire américaine ». Elle est décédée le 28 mai 2014 à l’âge de 86 ans.

Les Testaments by Margaret ATWOOD Summary

Le chef-d'oeuvre dystopique de Margaret Atwood, La Servante écarlate, est devenu un classique contemporain... auquel elle offre aujourd'hui une spectaculaire conclusion dans cette suite éblouissante. Quinze ans après les événements de La Servante écarlate, le régime théocratique de la République de Galaad a toujours la mainmise sur le pouvoir, mais des signes ne trompent pas : il est en train de pourrir de l'intérieur. À cet instant crucial, les vies de trois femmes radicalement différentes convergent, avec des conséquences potentiellement explosives. Deux d'entre elles ont grandi de part et d'autre de la frontière : l'une à Galaad, comme la fille privilégiée d'un Commandant de haut rang, et l'autre au Canada, où elle participe à des manifestations contre Galaad tout en suivant sur le petit écran les horreurs dont le régime se rend coupable. Aux voix de ces deux jeunes femmes appartenant à la première génération à avoir grandi sous cet ordre nouveau se mêle une troisième, celle d'un des bourreaux du régime, dont le pouvoir repose sur les secrets qu'elle a recueillis sans scrupules pour un usage impitoyable. Et ce sont ces secrets depuis longtemps enfouis qui vont réunir ces trois femmes, forçant chacune à s'accepter et à accepter de défendre ses convictions profondes. En dévoilant l'histoire des femmes des Testaments, Margaret Atwood nous donne à voir les rouages internes de Galaad dans un savant mélange de suspense haletant, de vivacité d'esprit et de virtuosité créatrice.

L'Audace d'espérer by Barack OBAMA Summary

À l'ère Trump, un appel aux bonnes volontés plus actuel et plus nécessaire que jamais. Sur quel idéal s'est bâtie l'élection de Barack Obama ? De quel état d'esprit ce Président aux cultures et aux identités morcelées est-il le reflet ? La défense de quelles valeurs l'a-t-elle hissé au poste suprême ? Avec cette profession de foi politique largement teintée d'autobiographie, Obama livre la substance de ce qui a fait, et fera à jamais, les fondements de sa politique : empathie, réconciliation, ambition. Une lecture plus nécessaire que jamais, à présent qu'une partie de l'Amérique semble avoir tourné le dos aux résolutions des deux mandats d'Obama. L'heure du bilan a sonné, et ce document d'époque fournit le plus précieux document de travail.

Employing Critical Qualitative Inquiry to Mount Nonviolent Resistance by Yvonna S. Lincoln,Gaile S. Cannella Summary

This volume engages researchers with the notion of critical qualitative inquiry (CQI) as a direct practice of resistance. As female educators and researchers who have (through our politically activist sister) been referred to as “Nasty Women” in the US presidential debates, we believe that it is our responsibility to respond through our inquiry to the violent reinscription of intersecting forms of injustice and marginalization. The purposes of this volume are therefore (1) to demonstrate personal actions taken by researchers to deal with thoughts/feelings of despair as well as how to move toward survival, and (2) to explore historical, new, and rethought research and activist methodologies (frameworks) as counter measures broadly and for public education specifically. Examples of CQI as resistance in response to the particular neoliberal patriarchal, whitelash presidential election event are provided by featured authors. Additionally, resources related to activist scholarship are provided. These frameworks, resources, and perspectives are also useful for future research in reaction to neoliberalism, patriarchy, and white supremacy.

Off Broadway Musicals, 1910–2007 by Dan Dietz Summary

Despite an often unfair reputation as being less popular, less successful, or less refined than their bona-fide Broadway counterparts, Off Broadway musicals deserve their share of critical acclaim and study. A number of shows originally staged Off Broadway have gone on to their own successful Broadway runs, from the ever-popular A Chorus Line and Rent to more off-beat productions like Avenue Q and Little Shop of Horrors. And while it remains to be seen if other popular Off Broadway shows like Stomp, Blue Man Group, and Altar Boyz will make it to the larger Broadway theaters, their Off Broadway runs have been enormously successful in their own right. This book discusses more than 1,800 Off Broadway, Off Off Broadway, showcase, and workshop musical productions. It includes detailed descriptions of Off Broadway musicals that closed in previews or in rehearsal, selected musicals that opened in Brooklyn and in New Jersey, and American operas that opened in New York, along with general overviews of Off Broadway institutions such as the Light Opera of Manhattan. The typical entry includes the name of the host theater or theaters; the opening date and number of performances; the production's cast and creative team; a list of songs; a brief plot synopsis; and general comments and reviews from the New York critics. Besides the individual entries, the book also includes a preface, a bibliography, and 21 appendices including a discography, filmography, a list of published scripts, and lists of musicals categorized by topic and composer.

Firebird by Mark Doty Summary

In Firebird, Mark Doty tells the story of a ten-year-old in a top hat, cane, and red chiffon scarf, interrupted while belting out Judy Garland's "Get Happy" by his alarmed mother at the bedroom door, exclaiming, "Son, you're a boy!" Firebird presents us with a heroic little boy who has quite enough worries without discovering that his dawning sexuality is the Wrong One. A self-confessed "chubby smart bookish sissy with glasses and a Southern accent," Doty grew up on the move, the family following his father's engineering work across America-from Tennessee to Arizona, Florida to California. A lyrical, heartbreaking comedy of one family's dissolution through the corrosive powers of alcohol, sorrow, and thwarted desire, Firebird is also a wry evocation of childhood's pleasures and terrors, a comic tour of American suburban life, and a testament to the transformative power of art.

The Christ Is Not a Person by J.C. Tefft Summary

Why are we born? For what purpose are we here? The longer we remain unaware of what is taking place within us of what drives us and what can liberate us from the bonds of egocentric behavior the longer we allow what the Buddha called the sorrow of life to hold sway. The sorrow of life is the sum and consequence of our total identification with the world that is created by self. The word Consciousness means something more than what the mind of self thinks, imagines, or conceives. Awareness in Pure Consciousness is an awareness that is other than self and beyond thought. Contrary to traditional thinking, the so-called unseen, unknown world is nothing more than Consciousness of which we are unaware. Unawareness in Consciousness has been evolving into Awareness in Consciousness since before time began. The author of this work comprehensively sets forth a meaning of ancient scripture that likely has not been advanced to you before. He demystifies ancient legends and myths so the essential truth of ancient teachings shines through. Using ancient scripture as a guide, he insightfully explores a growing conscious awareness that has been emerging within mankind over the last few thousand years. A must read for anyone looking to discover the deeper meaning of ancient scripture beyond a literal interpretation of the words.

Leaves of Grass by Walt Whitman Summary

Abraham Lincoln read it with approval, but Emily Dickinson described its bold language and themes as "disgraceful." Ralph Waldo Emerson found it "the most extraordinary piece of wit and wisdom that America has yet produced." Published at the author's expense on July 4, 1855, Leaves of Grass inaugurated a new voice and style into American letters and gave expression to an optimistic, bombastic vision that took the nation as its subject. Unlike many other editions of Leaves of Grass, which reproduce various short, early versions, this Modern Library Paperback Classics "Death-bed" edition presents everything Whitman wrote in its final form, and includes newly commissioned notes.
