Author by: John Hollander Language: en Publisher by: University of Chicago Press Format Available: PDF, ePub, Mobi Total Read: 64 Total Download: 248 File Size: 47,8 Mb Description: In this book, based on unpublished lectures delivered at the University of Cambridge, the late John Hollander explores the poetic lives and afterlives of shadow, focusing on British and American poetry from the Renaissance to the end of the twentieth century. Hollander uncovers the myriad literary identities assumed by shadow its force as a metaphoric mirror, as material for parable, a form of knowledge, and a mode of vision. He shows us what kind of thinking can be done with and in shadow, and what love of shadow amounts to.
In particular, he traces the history of how shadows acquire in poetry a mysterious substance the paradoxical means through which a thing, by nature secondary and passing, grabs at authority and becomes itself a source of life. In Hollander s poetic examples, shadow shows itself as a kind of light, clarifying things as much as it darkens them, even as it becomes a name for doubt and the unnamable.
Hollander and the poets he discusses give us shadow as companion, comforter, and questioner; creator, stalker, and ghost; witness, destroyer, and double. If the book s argument suggests at moments an anatomy of melancholy, the shadow here is also an occasion of continuous wonder, an opening to the gifts of time.'

In this compelling interdisciplinary study, Jay Zysk contends that the Eucharist is not just a devotional object or doctrinal crux, it also shapes a way of thinking about physical embodiment and textual interpretation in theological and dramatic contexts. Regardless of one’s specific religious identity, to speak of the Eucharist during that time was to speak of dynamic interactions between body and sign.
In crossing periodic boundaries and revising familiar historical narratives, Shadow and Substance challenges the idea that the Protestant Reformation brings about a decisive shift from the flesh to the word, the theological to the poetic, and the sacred to the secular. The book also adds to studies of English drama and Reformation history by providing an account of how Eucharistic discourse informs understandings of semiotic representation in broader cultural domains.
This bold study offers fresh, imaginative readings of theology, sermons, devotional books, and dramatic texts from a range of historical, literary, and religious perspectives. Each of the book’s chapters creates a dialogue between different strands of Eucharistic theology and different varieties of English drama. Spanning England’s long reformation, these plays—some religious in subject matter, others far more secular—reimagine semiotic struggles that stem from the controversies over Christ’s body at a time when these very concepts were undergoing significant rethinking in both religious and literary contexts. Shadow and Substance will have a wide appeal, especially to those interested in medieval and early modern drama and performance, literary theory, Reformation history, and literature and religion. Author by: Dilip Kumar Language: en Publisher by: Hay House, Inc Format Available: PDF, ePub, Mobi Total Read: 64 Total Download: 705 File Size: 51,9 Mb Description: An authentic, heartfelt and compelling narrative – straight from the horse’s mouth – that reveals for the first time numerous unknown aspects of the life and times of one of the greatest legends of all time who stands out as a symbol of secular India.
Dilip Kumar (born as Yousuf Khan), who began as a diffident novice in Hindi cinema in the early 1940s, went on to attain the pinnacle of stardom within a short time. He came up with spellbinding performances in one hit film after another – in his almost six-decade-long career – on the basis of his innovative capability, determination, hard work and never-say-die attitude. In this unique volume, Dilip Kumar traces his journey right from his birth to the present. In the process, he candidly recounts his interactions and relationships with a wide variety of people not only from his family and the film fraternity but also from other walks of life, including politicians. While seeking to set the record straight, as he feels that a lot of what has been written about him so far is ‘full of distortions and misinformation’, he narrates, in graphic detail, how he got married to Saira Banu, which reads like a fairy tale!
Dilip Kumar relates, matter-of-factly, the event that changed his life: his meeting with Devika Rani, the boss of Bombay Talkies, when she offered him an acting job. His first film was Jwar Bhata (1944). Kimball Piano Serial Number Year.
He details how he had to learn everything from scratch and how he had to develop his own distinct histrionics and style, which would set him apart from his contemporaries. After that, he soon soared to great heights with movies such as Jugnu, Shaheed, Mela, Andaz, Deedar, Daag and Devdas. In these movies he played the tragedian with such intensity that his psyche was adversely affected.
He consulted a British psychiatrist, who advised him to switch over to comedy. The result was spectacular performances in laugh riots such as Azaad and Kohinoor, apart from a scintillating portrayal as a gritty tonga driver in Naya Daur. After a five-year break he started his ‘second innings’ with Kranti (1981), after which he appeared in a series of hits such as Vidhaata, Shakti, Mashaal, Karma, Saudagar and Qila. Author by: Stephen R. Kandall Language: en Publisher by: Harvard University Press Format Available: PDF, ePub, Mobi Total Read: 84 Total Download: 557 File Size: 48,8 Mb Description: In 1989 Jennifer Johnson was convicted of delivering a controlled substance to a minor. That the minor happened to be Johnson's unborn child made her case all the more complex, controversial, and ultimately, historical.
Kandall, a neonatologist and pediatrician, testified as an expert witness on Johnson's behalf. The experience caused him to wonder how one disadvantaged black woman's case became a prosecutorial battlefield in the war on drugs. This book is the product of Kandall's search through the annals of medicine and history to learn how women have fared in this conflict and how drug-dependent women have been treated for the past century and a half. Kandall's sleuthing uncovers an intriguing and troubling story. Opium, laudanum, and morphine were primary ingredients in the curative 'powders' and strengthening 'tonics' that physicians freely prescribed and pharmacists dispensed to women a hundred and fifty years ago.
Or a woman could easily dose herself with narcotics and alcohol in the readily available form of 'patent' medicines sold in every town and touted in popular magazines ('Over a million bottles sold and in every one a cure!' For the most part unaware of their dangers, women turned to these remedies for 'female complaints,' such as 'womb disease' and 'congestion of the ovaries,' as well as for 'neurasthenia,' a widespread but vague nervous malady attributed to women's weaker, more sensitive natures. Not surprisingly, by the latter half of the nineteenth century the majority of America's opiate addicts were women. The more things change, the more they remain the same: Substance and Shadow shows how, though attitudes and drugs may vary over time--from the laudanum of yesteryear to the heroin of the thirties and forties, the tranquilizers of the fifties, the consciousness-raising or prescription drugs of the sixties, and the ascendance of crack use in the eighties--dependency remains an issue for women. Kandall traces the history of questionable treatment that has followed this trend.
From the maintenance clinics of the early twenties to the 'federal farms' of mid-century to the detoxification efforts and methadone maintenance that flourished in the wake of the Women's Movement, attempts to treat drug-dependent women have been far from adequate. As he describes current policies that put money into drug interdiction and prisons, but offer little in the way of treatment or hope for women like Jennifer Johnson, Kandall calls our attention to the social and personal costs of demonizing and punishing women addicts rather than trying to improve their circumstances and give them genuine help.
