Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1993 I was 19 years old and still living in South Australia, but then, what else was I going to be doing? 1993 is split into two parts as, well, I beat my previous year’s record and wrote 201 songs, so cutting it into two parts makes for easier reading. The book also contains some witty one liners and anecdotes about what was happening, who I wanted to be, or who I had a crush on. They are not perfect, nor meant to be, they’re just the musings of a young teenage girl with crushes and dreams. Here’s 1993 part 1. Enjoy!
Download Free Poems Of A Musical Flavour: Box Set 4-6 PDF by Tiara King Full Book and published by Royal Star Publishing. This book was released on 2018-09-19 with total page 688 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Music artists were in my life, and I started to analyse lyrics, which I guess led me to analyse books... Little did I know over the seven and a bit years I wrote that it was setting me up for bigger and better scribblings, namely novels over 500 pages and 125,000 words, and novellas, short stories and non-fictions. By the time 2002 rolled around, I was 28 years old and wrote one song. That’s all I wrote. And I’m surprised I wrote that because I hadn’t written in six years. That was the last song, and all of them were my practice for story-telling in four verses, a chorus, and a bridge for much bigger and better things. Covering a wide range of topics from 1993-2002, or volumes 4-6, mostly love, I plagiarise myself a lot, so have a good laugh, especially over the witty one-liners and anecdotes about what was happening, who I wanted to be, or who I had a crush on. They are not perfect, nor meant to be; they’re just the musings of a young teenage girl with crushes and dreams. Enjoy!
Download Free The Journey to the West, Revised Edition PDF by Full Book and published by University of Chicago Press. This book was released on 2013-04-05 with total page 440 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Anthony C. Yu’s translation of The Journey to the West,initially published in 1983, introduced English-speaking audiences to the classic Chinese novel in its entirety for the first time. Written in the sixteenth century, The Journey to the West tells the story of the fourteen-year pilgrimage of the monk Xuanzang, one of China’s most famous religious heroes, and his three supernatural disciples, in search of Buddhist scriptures. Throughout his journey, Xuanzang fights demons who wish to eat him, communes with spirits, and traverses a land riddled with a multitude of obstacles, both real and fantastical. An adventure rich with danger and excitement, this seminal work of the Chinese literary canonis by turns allegory, satire, and fantasy. With over a hundred chapters written in both prose and poetry, The Journey to the West has always been a complicated and difficult text to render in English while preserving the lyricism of its language and the content of its plot. But Yu has successfully taken on the task, and in this new edition he has made his translations even more accurate and accessible. The explanatory notes are updated and augmented, and Yu has added new material to his introduction, based on his original research as well as on the newest literary criticism and scholarship on Chinese religious traditions. He has also modernized the transliterations included in each volume, using the now-standard Hanyu Pinyin romanization system. Perhaps most important, Yu has made changes to the translation itself in order to make it as precise as possible. One of the great works of Chinese literature, The Journey to the West is not only invaluable to scholars of Eastern religion and literature, but, in Yu’s elegant rendering, also a delight for any reader.
Download Free A Poetry Teacher's Toolkit PDF by Collette Drifte Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2013-10-23 with total page 146 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Professional poets spend many hours crafting a finished piece of work, yet we expect children in school to sit down and write when they are told to, whether they feel inspired or not. This series of four books is a toolkit to help you build a positive framework for children to read, write, understand and enjoy poetry - to bring a creative spark to the poetry classroom. A combination of featured poems, creative ideas, structured lesson plans and differentiated photocopiable activity sheets gives the series a uniquely flexible approach - which means you can use the materials in any classroom context. If you're wary of poetry, if you think it's boring, or if you're nervous about teaching poetry, then you've chosen the right book. Key themes covered in BOOK 4: Language and Performance are moods and feelings through the use of effective language; nonsense and humorous verse; the continuity and links between ancient and modern, between nursery and playground rhymes and Shakespeare; whatever our ability, there is a place for everyone on the poetry 'ladder'; and performance poetry. Other books in the series are: BOOK 1: Words and Wordplay; BOOK 2: Rhymes, Rhythms and Rattles; and BOOK 3: Style, Shape and Structure.

Book excerpt: In all six of its volumes The Broadview Anthology of British Literature presents British literature in a truly distinctive light.

It includes comprehensive introductions to each period, providing in each case an overview of the historical and cultural as well as the literary background.

The new edition also includes two new sections of contextual materials. New to the bound book is “The Natural, The Human, The Supernatural, and the Sublime”—a section that includes not only a good selection of material from writers such as Edmund Burke and artists such as J.M.W. Turner but also material that may be less well known on topics such as changing human attitudes towards non-animals. New to the website is a wide-ranging selection of contextual materials on the Industrial Revolution, entitled “Steam Power and the Machine Age”. Additional highlights of this volume include: Jane Austen’s Lady Susan, a lesser-known but wonderfully readable epistolary short novel; “A Hymn to Na’ra’yena” by Sir William Jones; and, in an exception to the anthology’s general policy of including works in their entirety, Mary Shelley is represented by the last two chapters of The Last Man and by a selection of letters.

Download Free Irish Literary Magazines PDF by Tom Clyde Full Book and published by . This book was released on 2003 with total page 318 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Every significant Irish writer, from Swift to Heaney, and including Ferguson, Yeats, Kavanagh, Hewitt, and many more, has been intimately involved in Irish literary magazines, as contributor, reviewer or editor. These magazines provided successive generations of writers and artists with their village square, club and debating society rolled into one, and help us to chart the significance of the multifarious literary inter-relationships, and of the writers' interaction with their own times. This is the first comprehensive guide to almost three hundred years of Irish literary magazines - an important, but neglected resource for those interested in a number of areas of Irish Studies, including literature, and literary, social, cultural and economic history. In two parts, it firstly summarises the use which has been made of this material to date, and then outlines the history of these magazines, their development, personalities, and major themes and formats. There follows a descriptive bibliographical listing of well over two hundred Irish literary magazines giving the basic bibliographical details, summaries of each title, its contents and importance. There are also a number of distribution maps and chronological charts. No serious study of any Irish writer is complete without an examination of this vital context to their life and work.
Download Free Polin: Studies in Polish Jewry Volume 16 PDF by Michael C. Steinlauf Full Book and published by Liverpool University Press. This book was released on 2003-11-01 with total page 621 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Scholarship on the civilization of Polish Jews has tended to focus on elite culture and canonical literature; even modern Yiddish culture has generally been approached from the perspective of 'great works'. This volume of Polin focuses on the less explored but historically vital theme of Jewish popular culture and shows how, confronted by the challenges and opportunities of modernity in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, it blossomed into a complex expression of Jewish life. In addition to a range of articles on the period before the Second World War there are studies of the traces of this culture in the contemporary world. The volume as a whole aims to develop a fresh understanding of Polish Jewish civilization in all its richness and variety. Subjects discussed in depth include klezmorim and Jewish recorded music; the development of Jewish theatre in Poland, theatrical parody, and the popular poet and performer Mordechai Gebirtig; Jewish postcards in Poland and Germany; the early Yiddish popular press in Galicia and cartoons in the Yiddish press; working-class libraries in inter-war Poland; the impact of the photographs of Roman Vishniac; contemporary Polish wooden figures of Jews; and the Krakow Jewish culture festival. In addition, a Polish Jewish popular song is traced to Sachsenhausen, the badkhn (wedding jester) is rediscovered in present-day Jerusalem, and Yiddish cabaret turns up in blues, rock 'n' roll, and reggae garb. There are also translations from the work of two writers previously unavailable in English: excerpts from the ethnographer A. Litvin's pioneering five-volume work Yidishe neshomes (Jewish Souls) and several chapters from the autobiography, notorious in inter-war Poland, of the writer and thief Urke Nachalnik. As in earlier volumes of Polin substantial space is also given to new research into a variety of topics in Polish Jewish studies. These include the origins of antisemitism in Poland; what is known about the presence of German forces in the vicinity of Jedwabne in the summer of 1941; and the vexed question of Jews in the communist security apparatus in Poland after 1944. The review section includes an important discussion of what should be done about the paintings in Sandomierz cathedral which represent an alleged ritual murder in the seventeenth century, and an examination of the 'anti-Zionist' campaign of 1968.

Download Free Nineteenth-Century French Poetry PDF by Christopher Prendergast Full Book and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 1990-01-26 with total page 262 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume of essays, written by scholars from a wide range of critical and theoretical viewpoints, presents a fresh approach to the study of nineteenth-century French poetry. Each of the eleven essays, on different poets from Lamartine to Mallarmé and Laforgue, focuses on the detailed organisation of a single poem. The method of close reading has been adopted in order to effect an introduction to the analysis of the 'basics' of poetic language (sound, metre, syntax, etc.), and in order to explore and illustrate some of the claims and arguments about poetry arising from developments in the prevailing literary theory. Theoretical positions are posed and tested in the terms of practical analysis and interpretation. Christopher Prendergast's introduction to the volume situates the essays in a series of general perspectives and contexts, and Clive Scott has provided an appendix on French versification.
Download Free Aroma PDF by Constance Classen Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2002-11-01 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Smell is a social phenomenon, given particular meanings and values by different cultures. Odours form the building blocks of cosmologies, class hierarchies, and political odours. They can enforce social structures or transgress them, unite people or divide them, empower or disempower. The authors argue that the sociology of smell is repressed in the modern West, and its social history ignored. This book breaks the "olfactory silence" of modernity. It offers the first comprehensive exploration of the cultural role of odours in Western history - from antiquity to the present. It also covers a wide variey of non-Western societies. Its topics range from the medieval concept of the "odour of sanctity", to the aromatherapies of South America, and from olfactory stereotypes of gender and ethnicity in the modern West to the role of smell in postmodernity. Its subject matter will fascinate anyone who likes to nose around in the inner workings of culture.

His books, essays, journals, poems, letters, and unpublished manuscripts contain an inexhaustible treasure of epigrams and witticisms, from the famous ("The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation") to the obscure ("Who are the estranged?

The Quotable Thoreau, the most comprehensive and authoritative collection of Thoreau quotations ever assembled, gathers more than 2,000 memorable passages from this iconoclastic American author, social reformer, environmentalist, and self-reliant thinker. Including Thoreau's thoughts on topics ranging from sex to solitude, manners to miracles, government to God, life to death, and everything in between, the book captures Thoreau's profundity as well as his humor ("If misery loves company, misery has company enough"). Drawing primarily on The Writings of Henry D. Thoreau, published by Princeton University Press, The Quotable Thoreau is thematically arranged, fully indexed, richly illustrated, and thoroughly documented. For the student of Thoreau, it will be invaluable. For those who think they know Thoreau, it will be a revelation. And for the reader seeking sheer pleasure, it will be a joy.

Download Free A History of the Oratorio PDF by Howard E. Smither Full Book and published by UNC Press Books. This book was released on 2012-09-01 with total page 856 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: With this volume, Howard Smither completes his monumental History of the Oratorio. Volumes 1 and 2, published by the University of North Carolina Press in 1977, treated the oratorio in the Baroque era, while Volume 3, published in 1987, explored the genre in the Classical era. Here, Smither surveys the history of nineteenth- and twentieth-century oratorio, stressing the main geographic areas of oratorio composition and performance: Germany, Britain, America, and France. Continuing the approach of the previous volumes, Smither treats the oratorio in each language and geographical area by first exploring the cultural and social contexts of oratorio. He then addresses aesthetic theory and criticism, treats libretto and music in general, and offers detailed analyses of the librettos and music of specific oratorios (thirty-one in all) that are of special importance to the history of the genre. As a synthesis of specialized literature as well as an investigation of primary sources, this work will serve as both a springboard for further research and an essential reference for choral conductors, soloists, choral singers, and others interested in the history of the oratorio.

Download Free In the Glass Case PDF by C. K. Stead Full Book and published by Auckland University Press. This book was released on 2013-10-01 with total page 294 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Over a quarter of a century, C. K. Stead has built up a widely accessible collection of reviews and critical essays on New Zealand literature. In the Glass Case covers a wide spectrum of New Zealand writers, who are examined from a remarkably consistent viewpoint. The title is symbolic: New Zealand books were once held in a glass-fronted bookcase at the University of Auckland library. These were considered rare, although they are now out on the open shelves. Stead's views are often controversial and provoke discussion and passionate debate from other critics. This is not only an enlightening look into New Zealand literature and C. K. Stead, it is also a very enjoyable read.
Download Free The Princeton Handbook of Multicultural Poetries PDF by Terry V.F. Brogan Full Book and published by Princeton University Press. This book was released on 1996-01-11 with total page 366 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Drawn from the acclaimed New Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics, the articles in this concise new reference book provide a complete survey of the poetic history and practice in every major national literature or cultural tradition in the world. As with the parent volume, which has sold over 10,000 copies since it was first published in 1993, the intended audience is general readers, journalists, students, teachers, and researchers. The editor's principle of selection was balance, and his goal was to embrace in a structured and reasoned way the diversity of poetry as it is known across the globe today. In compiling material on 106 cultures in 92 national literatures, the book gives full coverage to Indo-European poetries (all the major Celtic, Slavic, Germanic, and Romance languages, as well as other obscure ones such as Hittite), the ancient middle Eastern poetries (Hebrew, Persian, Sumerian, and Assyro-Babylonian), subcontinental Indian poetries (the widest linguistic diversity), Asian and Pacific poetries (Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Mongolian, and half a dozen others), continental American poetries (all the modern Western cultures and native Indian in North, Central, and South American regions), and African poetries (ancient and emergent, oral and written).
