Summary:

"Cris Hollingsworth's waggle dance after scouting the rangiest field of literature--Virgil and Homer down to Milton and Swift, on to Plath and Byatt&#$151;leads you to where the nectar hides. . . . He wisely roams, extracting an anthology of poetry, prose, psychology, history&151;most of all, perception--that tops the bee's knees." --Paul West, author of The Secret Life of Words "Hollingsworth's wide-ranging exploration of the image of the hive is impressive. Poetics of the Hive and its panoply of references cannot fail to enrich university classrooms, especially those devoted to both the visual arts and literature." --Dore Ashton, author of A Fable of Modern Art "Cris Hollingsworth's Poetics of the Hive . . . is complex, even daring in argument; I'm even more impressed by [his] skill at an increasingly rare critical art, the educing of argument from careful, often brilliant analytical reading of literary texts." --Thomas R. Edwards, executive editor of Raritan: A Quarterly Review A study to delight the passionate reader, Poetics of the Hive tells the story of the evolution of the insect metaphor from antiquity to the multicultural present. An experiment in the &147;evolutionary biology&148; of artistic form, Poetics of the Hive freshly examines classic works of literature, offering a view of poetic creation that complicates our ideas of the past and its formative role in modern consciousness and world literature. In the first part of this lyrical synthesis of rhetoric, visual and postmodern theory, and cognitive science, Cristopher Hollingsworth reveals the structure behind his metaphor, redefining it as an aesthetically and philosophically potent tableau that he calls the Hive. He traces the Hive's evolution in epic poetry from Homer to Milton, which establishes antithetical but complementary images of angelic and demonic bees that Swift, Mandeville, and Keats use variously to debate classical versus emerging ideas of the individual's relationship to society. But the Hive becomes fully psychologized, Hollingsworth argues, only when its use by Conrad and Wells to explore Europe's colonial imagination of the Other is transformed by Kafka and Sartre into competing symbols of the modern self's existential condition. Cristopher Hollingsworth is an assistant professor of English at St. John's University, Staten Island.

Summary:

'How to Survive Puberty at 25' or rather guns, gangs, family, bullies and puberty is the true story of Nina Bhadreshwar, a young journalist, and her journey through others' stories to her own sanity after 14 years of anorexia and suicidal depression. Puberty is always painful. It is particularly painful when you are 25 years old and then living, as a British mixed race broke ass lass in Watts, Los Angeles shortly after the L.A. riots. And it becomes undeniably explosive when the said overaged adolescent is recruited to work for, write for and be the voice for Death Row Records in Westwood, Los Angeles. How Nina navigates her way through her cultural confusion and anorexia also becomes the chronicle for the little-known real behind-the-scenes of the history-changing episode that was Death Row Records and Los Angeles 1994-1996.

Summary:

"Adam's Apple" is a study of a theme in Western intellectual history. Through a metaphor, it traces the idea over the past three centuries that increased knowledge is somehow both a gain and a loss, a path to enlightenment and, simultaneously, the road to tragedy. Each chapter has a discrete topic, ranging from Malthusian economics to American nature writing, as the whole works toward a complex interweaving of major motifs about an increasingly scientific world. Together, they reflect humanity's anxieties over its efforts to improve itself by acquiring knowledge.

Summary:

The aim of this encyclopedia is to survey the fauna and flora of England and America not from the viewpoint of zoological or botanical science but of literature. Given the excessive broadness of the endeavour, this is done in a personally selective manner, with preferences toward English over American, and poetry over prose. Two sources in particular take pride of place - the Authorized King James Version of the Bible, and Shakespeare.
