Written on Water by Takashi Kojima Summary

This collection of classical poetry was selected from the Man'yoshu—the oldest and most important collection of Japanese poetry. Despair and hope are two emotions commonly voiced by poets in the Man'yoshu. Although written over thirteen hundred years ago, the poems retain a rare freshness, an originality that delights and fascinates even today. Part of the collection's originality is due to its variety of authors, from members of the aristocracy to commoners from the lowest ranks. The poems cover a wide range of content and expression, from court poets' highly polished verses to anonymous poems that read like folk songs. Poems about love are common but the treatment of love varies from anguished pinning to wondrous celebration to bitter denunciation. What the various Man'yo poems do have in common is emotional fire, amazing candor, and eloquent expression of feeling not found in later Japanese poetry. It is these characteristics that have earned the Man'yoshu a constant and devoted readership over the centuries.

Au fond de l'eau by Paula HAWKINS Summary

POURREZ-VOUS REMONTER À LA SURFACE ? Après La Fille du train, le nouveau roman de Paula Hawkins La veille de sa mort, Nel a appelé sa sœur, Julia. Qui n'a pas voulu lui répondre. Alors que le corps de Nel vient d'être retrouvé dans la rivière qui traverse Beckford, leur ville natale, Julia est effrayée à l'idée de revenir sur les lieux de son enfance. De quoi a-t-elle le plus peur ? D'affronter le prétendu suicide de sa sœur ? De s'occuper de Lena, sa nièce de quinze ans, qu'elle ne connaît pas ? Ou de faire face à un passé qu'elle a toujours fui ? Plus que tout encore, c'est peut-être la rivière qui la terrifie, ces eaux à la fois enchanteresses et mortelles, où, depuis toujours, les tragédies se succèdent. Julia, Lena, Nel : avec ce superbe portrait de trois femmes en quête d'elles mêmes, aux prises avec les pesanteurs du passé, on retrouve l'infinie compréhension pour ses personnages dont témoignait déjà Paula Hawkins dans La Fille du train. On y retrouve, surtout, sa virtuosité et un talent incroyable pour tenir le lecteur en haleine jusqu'à l'ultime rebondissement, qui marquera tous les esprits.

Written on the Water by Samuel Baker Summary

The very word "culture" has traditionally evoked the land. But when such writers as William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Lord Byron, and, later, Matthew Arnold developed what would become the idea of modern culture, they modeled that idea on Britain's imperial command of the sea. Instead of locating the culture idea’s beginnings in the dynamic between the country and the city, Samuel Baker insists on taking into account the significance of water for that idea’s development. For the Romantics, figures of the island, the deluge, and the sundering tide often convey the insularity of cultures understood to stand apart from the whole; yet, Baker writes, the sea also stands in their poetry of culture as a reminder of the broader sphere of circulation in which the poet's work, if not the poet's subject, inheres. Although other books treat the history of the idea of culture, none synthesizes that history with the literary history of maritime empire. Written on the Water tracks an uncanny interrelationship between ocean imagery and culturalist rhetoric of culture forward from the late Augustans to the mid-Victorians. In so doing, it analyzes Wordsworth's pronounced ambivalence toward the sea, Coleridge's sojourn as an imperial functionary in Malta, Byron's cosmopolitan seafaring tales, and Arnold's dual identity as "poet of water" and prose arbiter of "culture." It also considers Romanticism's classical inheritance, arguing that the Lake Poets dissolved into the idea of culture the Virgilian system of pastoral, georgic, and epic modes of literature and life. This compelling new study will engage any reader interested in the intellectual and literary history of Britain and the lived experience of British Romanticism.

Ce qu'aimer veut dire by Mathieu Lindon Summary

«En vérité, la proximité la plus grande que j'ai eue fut avec Michel Foucault et mon père n'y était pour rien. Je l'ai connu six ans durant, jusqu'à sa mort, intensément, et j'ai vécu une petite année dans son appartement. Je vois aujourd'hui cette période comme celle qui a changé ma vie, l'embranchement par lequel j'ai quitté un destin qui m'amenait dans le précipice. Je suis reconnaissant dans le vague à Michel, je ne sais pas exactement de quoi, d'une vie meilleure. La reconnaissance est un sentiment trop doux à porter : il faut s'en débarrasser et un livre est le seul moyen honorable, le seul compromettant. Quelle que soit la valeur particulière de plusieurs protagonistes de mon histoire, c'est la même chose pour chacun dans toute civilisation : l'amour qu'un père fait peser sur son fils, le fils doit attendre que quelqu'un ait le pouvoir de le lui montrer autrement pour qu'il puisse enfain saisir en quoi il consistait. Il faut du temps pour comprendre ce qu'aimer veut dire.»

Eileen Chang by Kam Louie Summary

Eileen Chang (1920–1995) is arguably the most perceptive writer in modern Chinese literature. She was one of the most popular writers in 1940s Shanghai, but her insistence on writing about individual human relationships and mundane matters rather than revolutionary and political movements meant that in mainland China, she was neglected until very recently. Outside the mainland, her life and writings never ceased to fascinate Chinese readers. There are hundreds of works about her in the Chinese language but very few in other languages. This is the first work in English to explore her earliest short stories as well as novels that were published posthumously. It discusses the translation of her stories for film and stage presentation, as well as nonliterary aspects of her life that are essential for a more comprehensive understanding of her writings, including her intense concern for privacy and enduring sensitivity to her public image. The thirteen essays examine the fidelity and betrayals that dominate her alter ego's relationships with parents and lovers, informed by theories and methodologies from a range of disciplines including literary, historical, gender, and film studies. These relationships are frequently dramatized in plays and filmic translations of her work.

Walking on Water by Robert P. Vande Kappelle Summary

How did Jesus do it? we wonder. How did he walk on water? To which we can imagine Jesus responding, "O ye of literal faith. Walk with me on the waters of life; explore with me the depths of reality." Walking on water is not, as one might think, about staying on the surface of things, but rather about going deep into the ordinary aspects of our lives and finding gold. It is not about exotic miracles or blind faith, but about "living into a new way of thinking." Most of us experience a continual flow of ideas, images, and feelings, clinging to these as if they were us. They are us, but not our True Self. They represent the atomized self, our small imperial ego. While this egocentric False Self is necessary, its role is temporary, a warm-up rather than the adventure itself. To ascertain our True Self, we must lose the false images that no longer serve us, images of God that are insufficient and images of ourselves that are similarly inadequate. Bringing to life tales about labyrinths and quests for the Grail, Walking on Water encourages us to go with Jesus into death and resurrection, encountering the universal Christ there, the True Self that gives all humans final meaning and definition. Such living "saves" us from our smaller and untrue selves, transforms our consciousness, and transports us from limited first-half-of-life living and thinking into second-half-of-life possibilities. The dynamic approach to spirituality described in this book--a transformational journey nourished by myth, metaphor, and mystery--will promote the wisdom, compassion, maturity, and connectedness we all need and desire.

Bio-Objects by Niki Vermeulen,Sakari Tamminen,Andrew Webster Summary

Increasing knowledge of the biological is fundamentally transforming what life itself means and where its boundaries lie. New developments in the biosciences - especially through the molecularisation of life - are (re)shaping healthcare and other aspects of our society. This cutting edge volume studies contemporary bio-objects, or the categories, materialities and processes that are central to the configuring of 'life' today, as they emerge, stabilize and circulate through society. Examining a variety of bio-objects in contexts beyond the laboratory, Bio-Objects: Life in the 21st Century explores new ways of thinking about how novel bio-objects enter contemporary life, analysing the manner in which, among others, the boundaries between human and animal, organic and non-organic, and being 'alive' and the suspension of living, are questioned, destabilised and in some cases re-established. Thematically organised around questions of changing boundaries; the governance and regulation of bio-objects; and changing social, economic and political relations, this book presents rich new case studies from Europe that will be of interest to scholars of science and technology studies, social theory, sociology and law.

Crusading and Chronicle Writing on the Medieval Baltic Frontier by Marek Tamm,Linda Kaljundi Summary

The Chronicle of Henry of Livonia, written by a missionary priest in the early thirteenth century to record the history of the crusades to Livonia and Estonia around 1186-1227, offers one of the most vivid examples of the early thirteenth century crusading ideology in practice. Step by step, it has become one of the most widely read and acknowledged frontier crusading and missionary chronicles. Henry's chronicle offers many opportunities to test and broaden the new approaches and key concepts brought along by recent developments in medieval studies, including the new pluralist definition of crusading and the relationship between the peripheries and core areas of Europe. While recent years have produced a significant amount of new research into Henry of Livonia, much of it has been limited to particular historical traditions and languages. A key objective of this book, therefore, is to synthesise the current state of research for the international scholarly audience. The volume provides a multi-sided and multi-disciplinary companion to the chronicle, and is divided into three parts. The first part, 'Representations,' brings into focus the imaginary sphere of the chronicle - the various images brought into existence by the amalgamation of crusading and missionary ideology and the frontier experience. This is followed by studies on 'Practices,' which examines the chronicle's reflections of the diplomatic, religious, and military practices of the christianisation and colonisation processes in medieval Livonia. The volume concludes with a section on the 'Appropriations,' which maps the reception history of the chronicle: the dynamics of the medieval, early modern and modern national uses and abuses of the text.

Walk on Water by Michael Ruhlman Summary

Described by one surgeon as “soul-crushing, diamond-making stress,” surgery on congenital heart defects is arguably the most difficult of all surgical specialties. Drawing back the hospital curtain for a unique and captivating look at the extraordinary skill and dangerous politics of critical surgery in a pediatric heart center, Michael Ruhlman focuses on the world-renowned Cleveland Clinic, where a team of medical specialists—led by idiosyncratic virtuoso Dr. Roger Mee—work on the edge of disaster on a daily basis. Walk on Water offers a rare and dramatic glimpse into a world where the health of innocent children and the hopes of white-knuckled families rest in the hands of all-too-human doctors.

Flood Forecast by Robert William Sandford,Kerry Freek Summary

Provocative, passionate and populist, RMB Manifestos are short and concise non-fiction books of literary, critical, and cultural studies. Hydro-climatic change is no longer an abstract or theoretical concept if you have been directly affected by the increase in the duration and intensity of extreme weather. In this new RMB manifesto, two of Canada’s most respected water experts explain what is happening to the hydrological cycle by way of the very personal impacts that disastrous flooding had on them, their colleagues, neighbours, friends and family. Detailing events as the rain started to fall and the water began to rise, Kerry Freek provides an extraordinary narrative of the flooding that took place in downtown Toronto in July of 2013, while Robert Sandford provides a minute by minute account of what happened in June of 2013 throughout southern Alberta. The exceptional flooding detailed in this startling new book is nothing compared to what the atmosphere is capable of delivering in the future. Extreme weather events are making it clear that it’s time to take climate change even more seriously than previously thought and that citizens, corporations and governments around the world must prepare for what many observers are now calling “the new normal” when it comes to major meteorological events.
