The Well of Lost Plots by Summary

The third book in the phenomenal Thursday Next series from Number One bestselling author Jasper Fforde. In the words of one critic: 'Don't ask. Just read it.' Leaving Swindon behind her to hide out in the Well of Lost Plots (the place where all fiction is created), Thursday Next, Literary Detective and soon-to-be one parent family, ponders her next move from within an unpublished book of dubious merit entitled 'Caversham Heights'. Landen, her husband, is still eradicated, Aornis Hades is meddling with Thursday's memory, and Miss Havisham - when not sewing up plot-holes in 'Mill on the Floss' - is trying to break the land-speed record on the A409. But something is rotten in the state of Jurisfiction. Perkins is 'accidentally' eaten by the minotaur, and Snell succumbs to the Mispeling Vyrus. As a shadow looms over popular fiction, Thursday must keep her wits about her and discover not only what is going on, but also who she can trust to tell about it ... With grammasites, holesmiths, trainee characters, pagerunners, baby dodos and an adopted home scheduled for demolition, 'The Well of Lost Plots' is at once an addictively exciting adventure and an insight into how books are made, who makes them - and why there is no singular for 'scampi'.

The Madwoman Upstairs by Catherine Lowell Summary

In Catherine Lowell’s "irresistibly clever" (Vogue) debut novel—“[a] piquant paean to the Brontë sisters" (The New York Times Book Review)—the only remaining descendant of the Brontë family embarks on a modern-day literary treasure hunt to find the family’s long-rumored secret estate, using only the clues her father left behind and the Brontës’ own novels. Samantha Whipple is used to stirring up speculation wherever she goes. Since her eccentric father’s untimely death, she is the presumed heir to a long-rumored trove of diaries, paintings, letters, and early novel drafts passed down from the Brontë family—a hidden fortune never revealed to anyone outside of the family, but endlessly speculated about by Brontë scholars and fanatics. Samantha, however, has never seen this alleged estate and for all she knows, it’s just as fictional as Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights. But everything changes when Samantha enrolls at Oxford University and long lost objects from the past begin rematerializing in her life, beginning with an old novel annotated in her father’s handwriting. With the help of a handsome but inscrutable professor, Samantha plunges into a vast literary mystery and an untold family legacy, one that can only be solved by decoding the clues hidden within the Brontës’ own works. A fast-paced adventure from start to finish, The Madwoman Upstairs is a smart and original novel and a moving exploration of what happens when the greatest truth is, in fact, fiction.

Mr. Rochester by Sarah Shoemaker Summary

"A CRACKING-GOOD READ!"-- People, Best New Books A deft and irresistible retelling of Charlotte Bronte¿s beloved classic Jane Eyre--from the point of view of the dashing, mysterious Mr. Rochester himself. For 170 years, Edward Fairfax Rochester has stood as one of literature's most complex and captivating romantic heroes. Sometimes cruel, sometimes tender, Jane Eyre's mercurial master at Thornfield Hall has mesmerized, beguiled, and, yes, baffled fans of Charlotte Brontv¿'s masterpiece for generations. But his own story has never been told. We first meet this brilliant, tormented hero as a motherless boy roaming Thornfield's lonely corridors. On the morning of Edward's eighth birthday, his father issues a decree: He is to be sent away to get an education, exiled from all he ever loved. Young Edward's journey will take him across working-class England and the decadence of continental Europe before he lands on the warm, languid shores of faraway Jamaica, where his inheritance lies. That island, however, holds secrets of its own, and Edward soon grows entangled in morally dubious business dealings and a passionate, whirlwind love affair with the town's ravishing heiress, Bertha Antoinetta Mason. Eventually, in the wake of a devastating betrayal, Edward must return to England with his increasingly unstable wife to take over as master of Thornfield. And it is there, on a twilight ride, that he meets the stubborn, plain young governess who will steal his heart and teach him how to love again. Mr. Rochester is a sweeping coming-of-age story and a stirring tale of adventure, romance, and deceit. Faithful in every particular to Brontv¿'s original yet full of unexpected twists and riveting behind-the-scenes drama, this novel will completely, deliciously, and forever change how we read and remember Jane Eyre.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon Summary

A bestselling modern classic—both poignant and funny—narrated by a fifteen year old autistic savant obsessed with Sherlock Holmes, this dazzling novel weaves together an old-fashioned mystery, a contemporary coming-of-age story, and a fascinating excursion into a mind incapable of processing emotions. Christopher John Francis Boone knows all the countries of the world and their capitals and every prime number up to 7,057. Although gifted with a superbly logical brain, Christopher is autistic. Everyday interactions and admonishments have little meaning for him. At fifteen, Christopher’s carefully constructed world falls apart when he finds his neighbour’s dog Wellington impaled on a garden fork, and he is initially blamed for the killing. Christopher decides that he will track down the real killer, and turns to his favourite fictional character, the impeccably logical Sherlock Holmes, for inspiration. But the investigation leads him down some unexpected paths and ultimately brings him face to face with the dissolution of his parents’ marriage. As Christopher tries to deal with the crisis within his own family, the narrative draws readers into the workings of Christopher’s mind. And herein lies the key to the brilliance of Mark Haddon’s choice of narrator: The most wrenching of emotional moments are chronicled by a boy who cannot fathom emotions. The effect is dazzling, making for one of the freshest debut in years: a comedy, a tearjerker, a mystery story, a novel of exceptional literary merit that is great fun to read.

"Reads like a crazed cross between Watership Down and Nineteen Eighty-Four." --The Guardian "Every book of Fforde's seems to be a cause for celebration." -- Charles Yu, The New York Times Book Review on Early Riser A new stand-alone novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Early Riser and the Thursday Next series England, 2022. There are 1.2 million human-size rabbits living in the UK. They wear clothes and can walk, talk and drive cars, the result of an inexplicable Spontaneous Anthropomorphizing Event fifty-five years earlier. A family of rabbits is about to move into Much Hemlock, a cozy little village in Middle England where life revolves around summer fetes, jam making, gossipy corner stores, and the oh-so-important Spick & Span awards for the best-kept village. No sooner have the rabbits arrived than the villagers decide they must depart, citing their propensity to burrow and breed, and their shameless levels of veganism. But Mrs Constance Rabbit is made of sterner stuff, and she and her family decide they are to stay. Unusually, their neighbors--longtime resident Peter Knox and his daughter, Pippa--decide to stand with them . . . and soon discover that you can be a friend to rabbits or to humans, but not both. With a blossoming romance, acute cultural differences, enforced rehoming to a MegaWarren in Wales and the full power of the ruling United Kingdom Anti-Rabbit Party against them, Peter and Pippa are about to question everything they had ever thought about their friends, their nation, and their species. An inimitable blend of satire, fantasy and thriller, The Constant Rabbit is the latest dazzlingly original foray into Jasper Fforde's ever-astonishing creative genius.

During those bitterly cold four months, the nation is a snow-draped landscape of desolate loneliness, devoid of human activity. Well, not quite. Your name is Charlie Worthing and it's your first season with the Winter Consuls, the committed but mildly unhinged group of misfits who are responsible for ensuring the hibernatory safe passage of the sleeping masses. You are investigating an outbreak of viral dreams which you dismiss as nonsense; nothing more than a quirky artefact born of the sleeping mind. When the dreams start to kill people, it's unsettling. When you get the dreams too, it's weird. When they start to come true, you begin to doubt your sanity. But teasing truth from the Winter is never easy: You have to avoid the Villains and their penchant for murder, kidnapping and stamp collecting; ensure you aren't eaten by Nightwalkers, whose thirst for human flesh can only be satisfied by comfort food; and sidestep the increasingly less-than-mythical WinterVolk. But so long as you remember to wrap up warmly, you'll be fine.

A Breath of Fresh Eyre by Margarete Rubik,Elke Mettinger-Schartmann Summary

Ever since its publication in 1847 Jane Eyre – one of the most popular English novels of all time – has fascinated scholars and a wide reading public alike and has proved a source of inspiration to successive generations of creative writers and artists. There is hardly any other hypotext that has been re-worked in so many adaptations for stage and screen, has inspired so many painters and musicians, and has been so often imitated, re-written, parodied or extended by prequels and sequels. New versions in turn refer to and revise older rewritings or take up suggestions from Brontë scholarship, creating a dense intertextual web.The essays collected in this volume do justice to the variety of media involved in theJane Eyre reworkings, by covering narrative, visual and stage adaptations, including an adaptor's perspective. Contributions review a diverse range of works, from postcolonial revision to postmodern fantasy, from imaginary after-lives to science fiction, from plays and Hollywood movies to opera, from lithographs and illustrated editions to comics and graphic novels.The volume thus offers a comprehensive collection of reworkings that also takes into account recent novels, plays and works of art that were published after Patsy Stoneman's seminal 1996 study on Brontë Transformations.

Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States by National Research Council,Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences,Committee on Applied and Theoretical Statistics,Policy and Global Affairs,Committee on Science, Technology, and Law,Committee on Identifying the Needs of the Forensic Sciences Community Summary

Scores of talented and dedicated people serve the forensic science community, performing vitally important work. However, they are often constrained by lack of adequate resources, sound policies, and national support. It is clear that change and advancements, both systematic and scientific, are needed in a number of forensic science disciplines to ensure the reliability of work, establish enforceable standards, and promote best practices with consistent application. Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States: A Path Forward provides a detailed plan for addressing these needs and suggests the creation of a new government entity, the National Institute of Forensic Science, to establish and enforce standards within the forensic science community. The benefits of improving and regulating the forensic science disciplines are clear: assisting law enforcement officials, enhancing homeland security, and reducing the risk of wrongful conviction and exoneration. Strengthening Forensic Science in the United States gives a full account of what is needed to advance the forensic science disciplines, including upgrading of systems and organizational structures, better training, widespread adoption of uniform and enforceable best practices, and mandatory certification and accreditation programs. While this book provides an essential call-to-action for congress and policy makers, it also serves as a vital tool for law enforcement agencies, criminal prosecutors and attorneys, and forensic science educators.

Katherine by Anya Seton Summary

"Exhilarating, exuberant, and rich," Katherine is an epic novel of a love affair that changed history—that of Katherine Swynford and John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, the ancestors of most of the British royal family (Austin Chronicle). Set in the vibrant fourteenth century of Chaucer and the Black Death, the story features knights fighting in battle, serfs struggling in poverty, and the magnificent Plantagenets—Edward III, the Black Prince, and Richard II—who rule despotically over a court rotten with intrigue. Within this era of danger and romance, John of Gaunt, the king’s son, falls passionately in love with the already-married Katherine. Their affair persists through decades of war, adultery, murder, loneliness, and redemption. Anya Seton's vivid rendering of the lives of the Duke and Duchess of Lancaster makes Katherine an unmistakable classic. “An inspiration and the benchmark by which I judge historical novels.”—Alison Weir

Framing Borders in Literature and Other Media by Werner Wolf,Walter Bernhart Summary

This book is both a contribution to an interdisciplinary study of literature and other media and a pioneering application of cognitive and frame-theoretical approaches to these fields. In the temporal media a privileged place for the coding of cognitive frames are the beginnings while in spatial media physical borders take over many framing functions. This volume investigates forms and functions of such framing spaces from a transmedial perspective by juxtaposing and comparing the framing potential of individual media and works. After an introductory theoretical essay, which aims to clarify basic concepts, the volume presents eighteen contributions by scholars from various disciplines who deal with individual media. The first section is dedicated to framing in or through the visual arts and includes discussions of the illustrations of medieval manuscripts, the practice of framing pictures from the Middle Ages to Magritte and contemporary American art as well as framings in printmaking and architecture. The second part deals with literary texts and ranges from studies centred on framings in frame stories to essays focussing on the use of paratextual, textual and non-verbal media in the framings of classical, medieval and modern German and American narrative literature; moreover, it includes studies on defamiliarized framings, e.g. by Julio Cortazar and Jasper Fforde, as well as an essay on end-framing practices. Sections on framings in film (including the trailers of Tolkien s "The Lord of the Rings") and in music (operatic overtures and Schumann s piano pieces) provide perspectives on further media. The volume is of relevance to students and scholars from various fields: intermedia studies, cognitive approaches to the media, literary and film studies, history of art, and musicology."

Doctor Who: Shada by Gareth Roberts Summary

From the unique mind of Douglas Adams, legendary author of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, comes Shada, a story scripted for the television series Doctor Who but never produced—and now transformed into an original novel. A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. Imagine how dangerous a LOT of knowledge is... The Doctor’s old friend and fellow Time Lord, Professor Chronotis, has retired to Cambridge University, where among the other doddering old professors nobody will notice if he lives for centuries. He took with him a few little souvenirs—harmless things really. But among them, carelessly, he took The Worshipful and Ancient Law of Gallifrey. Even more carelessly, he has loaned this immensely powerful book to clueless graduate student Chris Parsons, who intends to use it to impress girls. The Worshipful and Ancient Law is among the most dangerous artifacts in the universe; it cannot be allowed to fall into the wrong hands. The hands of the sinister Skagra are unquestionably the wrongest ones possible. Skagra is a sadist and an egomaniac bent on universal domination. Having misguessed the state of fashion on Earth, he also wears terrible platform shoes. He is on his way to Cambridge. He wants the book. And he wants the Doctor...

The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway Summary

The Sun Also Rises Ernest Hemingway - A collection of Ernest Hemingways works from the early 1920s, including one of his most famous works, The Sun Also Rises, as well as short stories and poems.Ernest Hemingways first novel, The Sun Also Rises, is also his most widely acclaimed. Set against the backdrop of Paris café society and the running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, the novel focuses on the lives of American expatriates in the 1920s. Although the Lost Generation is often considered to have been damaged and dissolute in the aftermath of World War I, Hemingway portrays them as strong characters who are imbued with independence. This edition also includes Hemingways novella The Torrents of Spring, the short story collection In Our Time (1925), and various other short stories, poems, and newspaper and magazine articles from the early 1920s. A scholarly introduction examines Hemingways life and writing career, providing readers with a deeper understanding of his works.

The Last Novel by David Markson Summary

In recent novels, which have been called "hypnotic," "stunning," and "exhilarating," David Markson has created his own personal genre. In this new work, The Last Novel, an elderly author (referred to only as "Novelist") announces that since this will be his final effort, he has "carte blanche to do anything he damned well pleases." Pressed by solitude and age, Novelist's preoccupations inevitably turn to the stories of other artists — their genius, their lack of recognition, and their deaths. Keeping his personal history out of the story as much as possible, Novelist creates an incantatory stream of fascinating triumphs and failures from the lives of famous and not–so–famous painters, writers, musicians, sports figures, and scientists. As Novelist moves through his last years, a minimalist self–portrait emerges, becoming an intricate masterpiece from David Markson's astonishing imagination. Through these startling, sometimes comic, but often tragic anecdotes we unexpectedly discern the entire shape of a man's life.

Energy, Ecocriticism, and Nineteenth-Century Fiction by Barri J. Gold Summary

Energy, Ecocriticism, and Nineteenth-Century Fiction: Novel Ecologies draws on energy concepts to revisit some of our favorite books—Mansfield Park, Jane Eyre, Great Expectations, and The War of the Worlds—and the ways these shape our sense of ourselves as ecological beings. Barri J. Gold regards the laws of thermodynamics not solely as a set of physical principles, but also as a cultural and conceptual form that we can use to reimagine our historically vexed relationship to the natural world. Beginning with an examination of the parallel inceptions of energy and ecology in the mid-nineteenth century, this book considers the question of how we may better read and interpret our world, developing a recipe for experimental reading and insisting upon the importance of literary studies in a world driving to ecological catastrophe.

The Oxford Handbook of The American Musical by Raymond Knapp,Mitchell Morris,Stacy Wolf Summary

The Oxford Handbook of The American Musical offers new and cutting-edge essays on the most important and compelling issues and topics in the growing, interdisciplinary field of musical-theater and film-musical studies. Taking the form of a "keywords" book, it introduces readers to the concepts and terms that define the history of the musical as a genre and that offer ways to reflect on the specific creative choices that shape musicals and their performance on stage and screen. The handbook offers a cross-section of essays written by leading experts in the field, organized within broad conceptual groups, which together capture the breadth, direction, and tone of musicals studies today. Each essay traces the genealogy of the term or issue it addresses, including related issues and controversies, positions and problematizes those issues within larger bodies of scholarship, and provides specific examples drawn from shows and films. Essays both re-examine traditional topics and introduce underexplored areas. Reflecting the concerns of scholars and students alike, the authors emphasize critical and accessible perspectives, and supplement theory with concrete examples that may be accessed through links to the handbook's website. Taking into account issues of composition, performance, and reception, the book's contributors bring a wide range of practical and theoretical perspectives to bear on their considerations of one of America's most lively, enduring artistic traditions. The Oxford Handbook of The American Musical will engage all readers interested in the form, from students to scholars to fans and aficionados, as it analyses the complex relationships among the creators, performers, and audiences who sustain the genre.

Identities and Audiences in the Musical by Raymond Knapp,Mitchell Morris,Stacy Wolf Summary

Issues of identity have always been central to the American musical in all its guises. Who appears in musicals, who or what they are meant to represent, and how, over time, those representations have been understood and interpreted, provide the very basis for our engagement with the genre. In this third volume of the reissued Oxford Handbook of the American Musical, chapters focus on race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality, regional vs. national identity, and the cultural and class significance of the musical itself. As important as the question of who appears in musicals are the questions of who watches and listens to them, and of how specific cultures of reception attend differently to the musical. Chapters thus address cultural codes inherent to the genre, in particular those found in traditional school theater programs.

A Line of Blood and Dirt by Benjamin Hoy Summary

The untold history of the multiracial making of the border between Canada and the United States. Often described as the longest undefended border in the world, the Canada-US border was born in blood, conflict, and uncertainty. At the end of the American Revolution, Britain and the United States imagined a future for each of their nations that stretched across a continent. They signed treaties with one another dividing lands neither country could map, much less control. A century and a half later, Canada and the United States had largely fulfilled those earlier ambitions. Both countries had built nations that stretched from the Atlantic to the Pacific and had made an expansive international border that restricted movement. The vision that seemed so clear in the minds of diplomats and politicians never behaved as such on the ground. Both countries built their border across Indigenous lands using hunger, violence, and coercion to displace existing communities and to disrupt their ideas of territory and belonging. The border's length undermined each nation's attempts at control. Unable to prevent movement at the border's physical location for over a century, Canada and the United States instead found ways to project fear across international lines They aimed to stop journeys before they even began.

Recovering History through Fact and Fiction by Dallas John Baker,Donna Lee Brien,Nike Sulway Summary

This edited collection brings together research that focuses on historic figures who have been largely neglected by history or forgotten over time. The question of how to recover, reclaim or retell the histories and stories of those obscured by the passage of time is one of growing public and scholarly interest. The volume includes chapters on a diverse array of topics, including semi-biographical fiction, digital and visual biographies, autobiographies, and memoirs, among others. Apart from the largely forgotten, the book provides fresh perspectives on historical figures whose biographies are distorted by their fame or limited by public perception. The subjects explored here include, among others, a child author, a Finnish grandmother, a cold war émigré, an Elizabethan era playwright, a castaway, a celebrated female artist, and the lauded personalities Mary Shelley, Judy Garland and J.R.R. Tolkien. Altogether, the chapters included in this collection offer a much-needed snapshot of new research on biography and its many variations and hybrids which will be of interest to academics and students of biography and life writing in general.

Spymaster's Prism by Jack Devine Summary

In Spymaster’s Prism the legendary former spymaster Jack Devine details the unending struggle with Russia and its intelligence agencies as it works against our national security. Devine tells this story through the unique perspective of a seasoned CIA professional who served more than three decades, some at the highest levels of the agency. He uses his gimlet-eyed view to walk us through the fascinating spy cases and covert action activities of Russia, not only through the Cold War past but up to and including its interference in the Trump era. Devine also looks over the horizon to see what lies ahead in this struggle and provides prescriptions for the future. Based on personal experience and exhaustive research, Devine builds a vivid and complex mosaic that illustrates how Russia’s intelligence activities have continued uninterrupted throughout modern history, using fundamentally identical policies and techniques to undermine our democracy. He shows in stark terms how intelligence has been modernized and weaponized through the power of the cyber world. Devine presents his analysis using clear-eyed vision and a repertoire of better-than-fiction spy stories, giving us an objective, riveting, and candid take on U.S.-Russia relations. He offers key lessons from our intelligence successes and failures over the past seventy-five years that will help us determine how to address our current strategic shortfall, emerge ahead of the Russians, and be prepared for what’s to come from any adversary.

Postfeminism and Contemporary Vampire Romance by Lea Gerhards Summary

In this book, Lea Gerhards traces connections between three recent vampire romance series; the Twilight film series (2008-2012), The Vampire Diaries (2009-2017) and True Blood (2008-2014), exploring their tremendous discursive and ideological power in order to understand the cultural politics of these extremely popular texts. She uses contemporary vampire romance to examine postfeminist ideologies and discuss gender, sexuality, subjectivity, agency and the body. Discussing a range of conflicting meanings contained in the narratives, Gerhards critically looks genre's engagement with everyday sexism and violence against women, power relations in heterosexual relationships, sexual autonomy and pleasure, (self-) empowerment, and (self-) surveillance. She asks: Why are these genre texts so popular right now, what specific desires, issues and fears are addressed and negotiated by them, and what kinds of pleasures do they offer?

Populism on Trial by Inigo Bing Summary

In a Britain that is becoming increasingly fractious and intolerant, the responsibility for upholding the values of broadmindedness, pluralism and individual freedom is passing from the politicians to the judges. But the bonds of trust that bind people to their institutions are breaking down, and the values underpinning judicial law-making are now under threat from a new populism. Using vivid examples from the fall-out from Brexit, the threat to parliamentary democracy, the impact of terrorism and austerity and the actions of politicians trying to prevent judicial oversight of ministerial power, this book warns that the rule of law is a fragile ingredient of democracy which may too easily become side-lined unless it is vigorously upheld. Inigo Bing has spent his life in the law, first as a barrister and then as a judge, and has observed first-hand how values once regarded as sacred are now at risk from a new form of anger-driven and distrustful politics.

Pagan Ethics by Michael York Summary

This book is the first comprehensive examination of the ethical parameters of paganism when considered as a world religion alongside Christianity, Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism. The issues of evil, value and idolatry from a pagan perspective are analyzed as part of the Western ethical tradition from the Sophists and Platonic schools through the philosophers Spinoza, Hume, Kant and Nietzsche to such contemporary thinkers as Grayling, Mackie, MacIntyre, Habermas, Levinas, Santayana, etc. From a more practical viewpoint, a delineation of applied pagan ethics is then presented in connection with current moral issues such as same-sex union, recreational drugs, environmental awareness, abortion and terrorism. Finally, overviews of sectarian pagan ethics (Shinto, Santeria, Heathenism, Druidry, Romuva, Slavic, Kemeticism, Classical and Wicca) provide both the general and pagan reader with an understanding of the provocative range and differentiation of pagan ethical thought. The book approaches the Western ethical tradition as an historical development and a continuing dialogue. The novelty of this approach lies in its consideration of paganism as a legitimate voice of religious spirituality rather than a satanic aberration or ridiculous childish behavior. The book is aimed at both the contemporary Western pagan and anyone with an interest in the moral dilemmas of our times and the desire to engage in the global ethical discussion. Among the more important features of the book are its presentation of a re-evaluation of idolatry, the notion of the virtue value, the richness of the pagan tradition, and the expansion of Western ethics beyond its Christian heritage.

Der Erste Weltkrieg zur See by Michael Epkenhans,Stephan Huck Summary

Der Erste Weltkrieg war in erster Linie ein Krieg, der an verschiedenen Fronten in West-, Ost- und Südeuropa, aber auch im Mittleren Osten, in Afrika und im Fernen Pazifik ausgefochten wurde. Der Erste Weltkrieg war aber von Beginn an auch ein Seekrieg, ausgetragen auf den Ozeanen der Welt.Die Schlachten zu Lande dominieren nach wie vor das öffentliche Gedenken an den Ersten Weltkrieg. Das spiegelt sich auch in den großen neuen Erzählungen über das Kriegsgeschehen: Der Seekrieg wird hier allenfalls am Rande behandelt. Zudem haben nationale Perspektiven immer noch Vorrang vor vergleichenden Analysen. Vor diesem Hintergrund erschien es sinnvoll, mit einschlägigen Fachleuten Bilanz zu ziehen und neue Perspektiven der Forschung zu diskutieren.Auf der Grundlage des gegenwärtigen Forschungsstandes und aus internationaler, vergleichender Perspektive beleuchten daher in diesem Tagungsband Historiker aus Deutschland, Großbritannien und Kanada, aus den USA, Australien und Russland, aus Frankreich und Österreich die Planungen für den Krieg zur See, dessen Verlauf und dessen vielfältige Wandlungen, aber ebenso den Alltag in den damaligen Marinen sowie die verschiedenen Formen der Erinnerung an das Geschehen.

영어고전040 제임스 조이스의 더블린 사람들(English Classics040 Dubliners by James Joyce) by 제임스 조이스(James Joyce) Summary

더블린 사람들(Dubliners)(1914) : 1914년 출간된 더블린 사람들(Dubliners)(1914)은 15편의 단편집으로, 첫 편에 등장하는 아이가 점차 성장하는 과정을 순차적으로 그려냈습니다. 더블린 3부작(Dublin Trilogy)의 첫 작품으로 더블린 사람들(Dubliners)(1914)에 등장하는 인물은 그의 차기작에서도 등장합니다. 제임스 조이스가 명성과 권위를 인정받지 못하는 초짜 시절의 글로, 무려 15명의 출판사로부터 각기 다른 수정을 요청받은 ‘비운의 작품’이기도 합니다. 이거 사람 돌아버리게 만들죠... 썼다가, 고쳤다가, 뺏다가, 넣었다가, 찍은 후에 회수까지... 1914년은 1905년으로부터 무려 10년이 흐른 시점에 비로소 출간된 해입니다. 1962년 The Dubliners란 이름의 민속 밴드가 결성되었습니다. 우리에게는 생소하지만, 2012년 50주년을 맞이할 때까지 꾸준히 활동하였으며 아일랜드인에게 큰 사랑을 받았습니다. 테마여행신문 TTN Korea 영어고전(English Classics)과 함께 어제도, 오늘도, 내일도 멋진 문학여행을! B 젊은 예술가의 초상(A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man)(1916) : 제임스 조이스의 자전적인 소설로, 작품에 등장하는 스티븐 디덜러스(Stephen Dedalus)는 차기작에도 등장하는 ‘작가의 문학적 분신’으로 그리스 신화에서 크레타 섬의 미로를 설계한 건축가 다이달로스(Δαίδαλος)에서 따온 것입니다. 에고이스트(The Egoist)에 연재한 후 1916년 아일랜드나 영국이 아닌, 미국 뉴욕에서 최초로 출간되었습니다. 마틴 스콜세지 감독의 영화 디파티드(The Departed)(2006)에 등장하는 Non Serviam은 젊은 예술가의 초상(A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man)(1916) Chapter III의 문구를 인용한 것입니다. 넷플릭스에서 시청 가능. 아일랜드 가수 호지어(Andrew Hozier Byrne)의 노래 Angel of Small Death & The Codeine Scene(2014)는 젊은 예술가의 초상(A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man)(1916)를 모티브로 만들어졌습니다. Non Serviam은 Rotting Christ, MOONSORROW, Pih 등이 발표한 노래의 이름으로 선택되었습니다. 그러나, 이는 제임스 조이스의 소설보다는 악마 루시퍼(Lucifer)와 관련이 높은 헤비메탈 밴드, 락밴드, 래퍼스러운 곡명이지요. 악마 루시퍼(Lucifer)는 천사와 달리 신을 믿는 것을 거부한다는 의미로 라틴어 Non Serviam, 영어 I will not serve라고 했다는데요, 현대에는 비단 종교적인 의미를 넘어서 정치, 문화적인 저항을 은유합니다. 율리시스(Ulysses)(1922) : 1922년 2월 2일, 제임스 조이스의 마흔살 생일 출간된 율리시스(Ulysses)(1922)는 더블린 출신의 세 등장인물이 1904년 6월 16일, 이른바 블룸즈데이(Bloomsday)(1954)에 경험한 에피소드를 엮은 18편의 단편입니다. 율리시스(Ulysses)는 호메로스(Homer)가 집필한 고대 그리스의 서사시 오디세이(Odyssey)에 등장하는 트로이 전쟁의 영웅 오디세우스(Odysseus)의 라틴어 이름입니다. 총 24편의 단편집으로 구성된 10년간의 귀향 모험기로, 율리시스(Ulysses)(1922)의 구성과 형식 또한 이를 따랐습니다. 율리시스(Ulysses)(1922)는 ‘제임스 조이스의 대표작’이자, 자위 행위를 묘사한 부분으로 인해 외설 논쟁에 휘말렸으며, 영국과 미국에서 출판과 판매가 금지된 바 있는 ‘문제작’이기도 합니다. 작품에 등장하는 더블린의 실제 장소는 그의 흔적을 찾는 독자들의 발걸음이 끊이지 않는 명소 – 일명 율리시스 루트(Ulysses Route)로 자리매김하였습니다. PDF와 구글 맵을 첨부합니다. 난해한 것으로 유명한 제임스 조이스의 작품 중에서 가장 난해한 작품으로 꼽히며, 작가 본인 또한 이를 자랑(?!)하였습니다. 소설 원작을 소재로 1974년 뮤지컬, 1967년 영화, 1982년 라디오 드라마 등 다양한 버전으로 재탄생하였습니다. put in so many enigmas and puzzles that it will keep the professors busy for centuries arguing over what I meant (나는 작품에) "수세기 동안 교수들이 내 의도를 두고 고민할 정도로 많은 수수께끼와 퍼즐을 넣었다"고 말했고, 이것은 나에게 (작가로써의) 불멸을 얻게 하는 유일한 길일 것입니다. 피네간의 경야(Finnegans Wake)(1939) : 더블린 3부작(Dublin Trilogy)에 이어 제임스 조이스가 출간한 피네간의 경야(Finnegans Wake)(1939) 또한 그의 다른 작품과 마찬가지로 해석이 난해한 작품으로 유명합니다. 2012년 한국어 번역본이 ‘세계에서 4번째 번역본’으로 출간되었으며, 현재까지 한국어 번역은 김종건 교수가 유일합니다. 김종건 교수는 피네간의 경야(Finnegans Wake)(1939) 외에도 더블린 사람들(Dubliners)(1914), 율리시스(Ulysses)(1922)을 비롯해 그의 작품 해설집을 집필한 ‘국내 최고의 제임스 조이스 전문가’입니다. 쿼크(quark)는 현대물리학에서 물질의 기본 성분(a fundamental constituent of matter)이자 소립자의 일종(a type of elementary particle)을 일컫는 현대 물리학 용어입니다. 물리학과는 전혀 관련 없는 제임스 조이스의 소설 피네간의 경야(Finnegans Wake)(1939)에서 따온 것으로, 마크(Mark)에게 술을 권하는 문장에서 유래하였습니다. 1963년 미국 물리학자 머리 겔만(Murray Gell-Mann)이 명명하였으며 1969년 노벨 물리학상을 수상하였습니다. 아일랜드 중앙은행(Central Bank of Ireland) €10 기념 은화(2013) : 아일랜드 중앙은행은 2013년 European Silver Programme의 일환으로 2013년 제임스 조이스를 모델로 한 €10(£8.50) 기념 은화를 단 만 개 한정 발행하였습니다. 판매가는 €46! 동전의 앞면에 아일랜드 하프를, 뒷면에는 작가의 초상화와 율리시스(Ulysses)(1922)의 한 대목을 새겨 넣었습니다. 황당하게도 은화에는 that이 한번 더 추가되었는데... 조각가 Mary Gregoriy의 실수로 추정됩니다. 그러나, 이미 발행한 은화인지라 구매자에게 이를 고지하고 판매하였습니다. 세계 기념 주화 역사상 유래없는 ‘오타 은화’로 훗날 가치가 더 올라갈지도?! 조이스 산업(Joyce Industry) : 제임스 조이스(James Joyce)는 아일랜드 더블린에서 태어나, 유럽 각지를 배회하였습니다만 자신의 작품을 통해 더블린에 대한 애정을 숨기지 않았습니다. 더블린 사람들(1914)을 시작으로 젊은 예술가의 초상(1916) , 율리시즈(1922)까지, 일명 더블린 3부작(Dublin Trilogy)은 모두 더블린과 더블린의 사람들을 소재로 하고 있습니다. 이 때문에 세계 각지의 제임스 조이스(James Joyce) 독자들은 아일랜드 더블린으로 오직 작가의 흔적을 만나기 위해 방문하는데요, 이 덕분에 더블린은 비단 블룸즈데이(Bloomsday) 뿐 아니라 일년 내내 그의 책을 옆구리에 끼고 더블린 거리를 걷는 관광객으로 가득합니다. 제임스 조이스(James Joyce) 때문에 더블린을 방문한 이들이 먹고, 마시고, 쇼핑함으로써 더블린의 관광업, 숙박업, 쇼핑몰 등은 큰 수혜를 받는 셈이지요. 셰익스피어의 작품이 유발한 경제적 가치를 셰익스피어 산업(Shakespeare Industry)이라고 칭하는데, 더블린에서는 제임스 조이스가 유발한 효과를 조이스 산업(Joyce Industry)이라고 명명하였습니다. -목차(Index)- 프롤로그(Prologue). 테마여행신문 TTN Korea 영어고전(English Classics) 101선을 읽어야 하는 7가지 이유 11가지 키워드로 읽는 제임스 조이스(James Joyce) by 조명화 편집장 01. 고국으로 돌아오길 거부한 아일랜드 작가(1882~1941) 02. 해럴드 블룸(Harold Bloom)의 서구문학정전(The Western Canon)(1994) 03.
