Download Free Yesterday Once More PDF by Dr. Jaskiran Chopra Full Book and published by BookMedia. This book was released on with total page 232 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Nostalgia is a wonderful way to pay our tribute to the past. The writings in this volume sensitively evoke the past and create a beautiful canvas of memories, a canvas we can all identify with. Personal memories play hide and seek with nostalgia for a shared world, a world that is fast vanishing. A slow paced and calm world, a world of greater human interaction, a world of truer values. The book will take us on an enriching inward journey that traces the innocent paths of childhood, the sensitive lanes of adolescence and even the difficult roads that one travels later. The faded beauty of the Doon valley is a theme that runs through a good part of this book and regret jostles with rapid change. The Dehra Dun of bubbling canals, of litchi and mango orchards, of tongas and leisurely cyclists is a place one can no longer find except in fading photographs or fading memories. And it is these memories that I have tried to capture and put together a bouquet dedicated to parents, teachers, alma mater, homes and other things that live forever in the landscape of my heart. The nostalgia goes beyond the valley and its surroundings. The book talks of old cinemas, charismatic film stars, the warmth of book shops, the charm of Doordarshan, days of audio cassettes, old style melas and cosy restaurants in the hills. The effort is to bring back yesterday, once more. The pleasures and joys of simple living and importance of emotions in life are highlighted in the book. Although these are personal memories of my yesterdays, they will resonate in each sensitive and sentimental reader’s heart as the feelings are universal and the moments captured are timeless .These are part of our collective memories and will, hopefully, evoke emotions that have inspired me to create this work. Nostalgia is indeed a strong emotion that brings us a strange pain mixed with joy. However, it is, on the whole, a satisfying feeling and many of us simply love to go on a trip down memory lane. I sincerely hope Yesterday Once More will be one such delightful trip. Dr. Jaskiran Chopra

Download Free American Literature’s Aesthetic Dimensions PDF by Cindy Weinstein Full Book and published by Columbia University Press. This book was released on 2012-07-17 with total page 432 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Rethinking the category of aesthetics in light of recent developments in literary theory and social criticism, the contributors to this volume showcase the interpretive possibilities available to those who bring politics, culture, ideology, and conceptions of identity into their critiques. Essays combine close readings of individual works and authors with more theoretical discussions of aesthetic theory and its relation to American literature. In their introduction, Weinstein and Looby argue that aesthetics never left American literary critique. Instead, the essay casts the current "return to aesthetics" as the natural consequence of shortcomings in deconstruction and new historicism, which led to a reconfiguration of aesthetics. Subsequent essays demonstrate the value and versatility of aesthetic considerations in literature, from eighteenth-century poetry to twentieth-century popular music. Organized into four groups—politics, form, gender, and theory—contributors revisit the canonical works of Henry James, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Stephen Crane, introduce the overlooked texts of Constance Fenimore Woolson and Earl Lind, and unpack the complexities of the music of The Carpenters. Deeply rooted in an American context, these essays explore literature's aesthetic dimensions in connection to American liberty and the formation of political selfhood. Contributors include Edward Cahill, Ivy G. Wilson, June Ellison, Dorri Beam, Christopher Castiglia, Christopher Looby, Wendy Steiner, Cindy Weinstein, Trish Loughran, Jonathan Freedman, Elisa New, Dorothy Hale, Mary Esteve, Eric Lott, Sianne Ngai
Download Free Carpenters PDF by Mike Cidoni Lennox Full Book and published by Chronicle Books. This book was released on 2021-11-16 with total page 384 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Introduction by Richard Carpenter The definitive biography of one of the most enduring and endeared recording artists in history—the Carpenters—is told for the first time from the perspective of Richard Carpenter, through more than 100 hours of exclusive interviews and some 200 photographs from Richard's personal archive, many never published. After becoming multimillion-selling, Grammy-winning superstars with their 1970 breakthrough hit "(They Long to Be) Close to You," Richard and Karen Carpenter would win over millions of fans worldwide with a record-breaking string of hits including "We've Only Just Begun," "Top of the World," and "Yesterday Once More." By 1975, success was taking its toll. Years of jam-packed work schedules, including hundreds of concert engagements, proved to be just too much for the Carpenters to keep the hits coming—and, ultimately, to keep the music playing at all. However, Richard and Karen never took their adoring public, or each other, for granted. In Carpenters: The Musical Legacy, Richard Carpenter tells his story for the first time. With candor, heart, and humor, he sheds new light on the Carpenters' trials and triumphs—work that remains the gold standard for melodic pop. This beautifully illustrated definitive biography, with exclusive interviews and never-before-seen photographs, is a must-have for any Carpenters fan.

Download Free Whispers of the Heart PDF by Veena Khurana Full Book and published by Zorba Books. This book was released on 2020-05-01 with total page 118 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A Collection of Poetry in English Poetry is having a dialogue with ones inner calling, an explosion of emotions woven into words. Life’s journey is a mixed bag of joy and sorrow, count each step and count your blessings. If you love someone express it…you never know when they will be gone. The poem “Dear father I love you” has been written after I lost him. It’s my way of expressing my love for him, giving birth to “Dear father I love you”. The daily doses of introspection and communion with inner self has reinforced and strengthened the positivity, hence giving birth to “Painting a life”, “Fragility of relationship”. As I watched people scurrying around with their baggage of fears and bundles of raw emotions, I tried to infuse some tranquility and equanimity of mind in the fast paced life with poems like “Time to say goodbye” and “The trapped soul”. There are poems of hopes, desire, nature and life poems.

Karen's velvety voice on a string of 16 consecutive Top 20 hits from 1970 to 1976 – including Close to You, We've Only Just Begun, Rainy Days and Mondays, Superstar, and Hurting Each Other – propelled the duo to worldwide stardom and record sales of over 100 million.

Download Free Why Karen Carpenter Matters PDF by Karen Tongson Full Book and published by Faber & Faber. This book was released on 2021-11-02 with total page 256 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A PITCHFORK MUSIC BOOK OF THE YEAR A radical, literary and intimate insight into one of the twentieth century's most vital vocalists. 'Tongson serves up a number of astute observations about fantasy, projection, longing, normalcy, and aberrance.' MAGGIE NELSON 'Deftly weaves memoir, history, and cultural criticism to highlight the dynamic relationship between artists and listeners.' PITCHFORK In the '60s and '70s, America's music scene was marked by raucous excess, reflected in the tragic overdoses of young superstars such as Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. At the same time, the uplifting harmonies and sunny lyrics that propelled Karen Carpenter and her brother, Richard, to international fame belied a different sort of tragedy - the underconsumption that led to Karen's death at age thirty-two from the effects of an eating disorder. In Why Karen Carpenter Matters, Karen Tongson (whose parents named her after the pop icon) interweaves the story of the singer's rise to fame in the 1960s and '70s with her own trans-Pacific journey between the Philippines - where imitations of American pop styles flourished - and Karen Carpenter's home ground of Southern California. Tongson reveals why the Carpenters' chart-topping, seemingly white-washed musical fantasies of 'normal love' have profound significance for her - as well as for other people of colour, LGBT+ communities, and anyone outside the mainstream culture usually associated with Karen Carpenter's legacy. This hybrid of memoir and biography excavates the destructive perfectionism at the root of the Carpenters' sound, while finding the beauty in the singer's all-too-brief life.
