Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This panoramic novel of the last days of Christ ranges from the palaces of imperial Rome to the strife-torn hills of Judea—where the conflict of love and betrayal, revenge and redemption, reaches a mighty climax in the drama of the Crucifixion. For this is the full story of the world’s most dramatic execution, as it affected one of its least-known participants—the man who hurled his spear into Christ on the Cross. Among his many successful historical novels, Louis de Wohl considered The Spear the magnum opus of his literary career. “Exceptionally powerful...an excellent piece of work!”—Chicago Sun-Times “A brilliant and panoramic picture of the events and personalities surrounding the Crucifixion.”—Catholic Messenger “This novel tells from a new and fascinating angle the age-old story of the men and women who were sublimely affected by knowing the Messiah, Jesus Christ...It is a magnificent novel.”—Boston Herald “Told with the clarity and vitality one has come to expect from Louis de Wohl, and holds the reader’s interest all the way through...Richly drawn, against a background of mighty drama.”—Cincinnati Enquirer

Book The Quest for the Fictional Jesus

Download or read The Quest for the Fictional Jesus PDF, written by Margaret E Ramey and published by ISD LLC. This book was released on 2017-03-31 with total page 226 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For almost two millennia, Jesus' story has been retold in various forms and fashions but in the last century a new way of reimagining the man from Galilee has sprung up in the form of novels about the life ofJesus. While the novels themselves are asvaried as their authors, this work aims to introduce readers to some common literary strategies and theological agendas found in this phenomenon by surveying a few prominent examples. It also explores the question of what happens when we examine theintertextual play between these reimaginings and their Gospel progenitors as we allow these contemporary novels to pose new questions to their ancient counterparts. An intriguing hermeneutical circle ensues as we embark on our quest for the fictional Jesus and accompany his incarnations as they lead us back to re-examine the canonical portraits of Jesus anew.

  • Publisher : Bloomsbury Publishing
  • Release : 2017-03-14
  • ISBN : 1350317608
  • Pages : 250 pages

Download or read The Contemporary Irish Novel PDF, written by Linden Peach and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2017-03-14 with total page 250 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This essential guide offers innovative critical readings of key contemporary novels from Ireland and Northern Ireland. Linden Peach discusses texts that are representative of the richness of Irish writing during the 1980s and 1990s, and reads works by established authors alongside those by the new generation of writers. The novels examined include works by John Banville, Jennifer Johnston, Roddy Doyle, Emma Donoghue, Seamus Deane, William Trevor, Dermot Bolger, Joseph O'Connor, Patrick McCabe, Mary Morrissy, Glenn Patterson and Robert McLiam Wilson. The Contemporary Irish Novel addresses themes such as ghosts and haunting, mimicry, obedience and subversion, the relocation and reinscription of identity, the mother figure, parent-child relations, madness, masculinity, self-harm, sexuality, domestic violence, fetishism and postmodernity. Drawing on a range of critical approaches including postcolonial, gender and psychoanalytic theory, Peach explores and celebrates the diversity of Irish fiction and suggests that the boundary between literature and theory is as permeable as that between Ireland and Northern Ireland.

Book excerpt: The Unauthorized Dan Brown Update includes information about Digital Fortress, Angels & Demons, Deception Point, The Da Vinci Code (book and movie), The Solomon Key, and subsequent novels. It's a "mini" book in the sense that it is fairly thin - 96 pages to start with, although it will grow over time. (For example, detailed chapter-by-chapter analysis of The Solomon Key will be added soon after that novel is published.) This is a "meta" book in the sense that it complements, without trying to replace, the many worthy books that are already available about The Da Vinci Code. This book is unique in that it provides a "nimble," timely report on *all* of Dan Brown's activities, including everything that is known about The Solomon Key, "The Da Vinci Code" movie, and beyond.

Book A Study of The Rainbow and Women in Love as Expressions of D  H  Lawrence s Thinking on Modern Civilization

Download or read A Study of The Rainbow and Women in Love as Expressions of D H Lawrence s Thinking on Modern Civilization PDF, written by 백낙청(Paik Nak-chung) and published by 창비 Changbi Publishers. This book was released on 2021-03-05 with total page 332 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 백낙청 50년 공부의 원형 『D. H. 로런스의 현대문명관』의 영어 원문 D. H. 로런스의 창조적 사유로 탐색한 현대문명의 한계와 극복 가능성 주체적 외국문학 연구를 선도하고 학문적 실천의 전범을 보여온 백낙청 50여년 학문여정의 시발점이 되는 하바드대학교 박사학위논문(1972) 영어 원문이 단행본으로 출간되었다. 이 책의 한국어 번역본이 『D. H. 로런스의 현대문명관: 『무지개』와 『연애하는 여인들』』(2020)로 출간된 바 있다. 일찍이 서양정신사의 한계를 인식하고 그 극복을 모색한 걸출한 영국소설가 D. H. 로런스의 대표작 분석을 통해 서구 산업사회·기술문명의 본질을 고찰하고 다른 세계의 가능성을 모색한다. 저명한 영문학자 마이클 벨과 소설가 아리엘 도르프만이 이 책에 각각 서문과 추천사를 보태주며 발간의 의미를 더했다. 이 책은 존재와 진리에 대한 비형이상학적 탐구 및 그에 기반한 리얼리즘론, 제3세계문학론, 근대 적응 및 극복의 이중과제론, 주체적 외국문학연구 등 저자가 반세기도 넘는 동안 수행해온 학문적·비평적·사회적 실천의 중심에 자리한 담론들 대부분을 혹은 맹아적 형태로, 혹은 거의 완성된 모습으로 품고 있다는 점에서 특별한 위치를 점한다. 한국문학계의 현실에 밀착된 문제의식을 집중적인 학문적 탐구와 연마를 통해 확대, 심화함으로써 탄탄한 비평적 입론으로 가다듬어낸 성과인가 하면, 다른 한편으로는 장차 한국평단에 뚜렷한 족적을 남기게 될 주요한 비평담론들의 모태이기도 하다. Paik’s thesis remains a highly sophisticated vade mecum for reading Lawrence and, given its critical and intellectual heft, its lucid accessibility is equally remarkable. — Michael Bell, author of D. H. Lawrence: Language and Being and Professor Emeritus, University of Warwick Why should we read D. H. Lawrence today? Nak-chung Paik has provided an answer to that question in this book of startling originality. — Ariel Dorfman, author of Death and the Maiden and Distinguished Professor Emeritus of Literature, Duke University This study proposes to examine D. H. Lawrence’s The Rainbow and Women in Love as expressions of his thinking on modern civilization. The two main essays on the novels are preceded by an inordinately long “Introductory” chapter and followed by a relatively brief “Epilogue: Reflections on The Plumed Serpent.” The Introduction, which touches on a variety of topics, nevertheless attempts a sustained and consistent discussion of how Lawrence’s non-fictional work amounts to a body of cogent presentations and expositions of the thought-adventure most notably enacted by The Rainbow and Women in Love. The Epilogue’s reflections antedate the discourse of ‘post-colonialism’ and did evoke a number of post-colonialist themes. Changbi Publishers

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: 3 billion years ago, an alien evolution experiment began, then they ended the age of dinosaurs to protect that experiment. Later, they performed three human makeovers—Jesus Of Nazareth, Galileo, and a 72 year old man named Sam. In 2016, a spacecraft lands in Virginia carrying Sam—now The Emissary—who reveals an hypothesis to be tested—Science as an organizing principle is compatible with species survivability and longevity. With Sam is BC. who appears as a platinum rod, a wooden staff, a Border Collie, and a giant tarantula. Sam explains the experiment is threatened by religious fundamentalism, so to usher in an Age Of Science, Sam confronts a variety of believers and unbelievers. But superstition is hard to overcome, and when fanatics attempt to assassinate them, BC wreaks havoc. Then Sam reveals an unimpeachable witness, whose testimony rocks the world. But the aliens have a hidden motive, one that forces humanity to confront an unworldly terror that threatens their very existence.

Download or read Cultural Icons PDF, written by Keyan G Tomaselli and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-10-24 with total page 168 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Eiffel Tower—this symbol of industrial development and the French Republic is now associated with a romantic vacation in Paris. Nelson Mandela—the hero of the struggle against apartheid was featured in a British Airways magazine article called “The Power of Brand Mandela.” This book explores these and other contemporary cultural icons that, over time, have been endowed with a complex and powerful layering of meanings. The authors analyze the way in which such icons, whether objects or persons, living or mythical, are constructed and disseminated. They also critically investigate the implications, in semiotic and cultural terms, of the accretion of meaning and popular recognition attached to them, their moral and aesthetic ambiguity, and their enduring appeal to a fascinated public. This slim and provocative volume is ideal for courses in and related to cultural studies.
