Book Summary:

In this delightful romantic adventure, a 16-year-old overachiever learns how to seize the day. "I've got my entire life planned out for the next ten years — including my PhD and Pulitzer Prize," claims 16-year-old overachiever Vassar Spore, daughter of overachiever parents, who in true overachiever fashion named her after an elite women's college. Vassar expects her sophomore summer to include AP and AAP (Advanced Advanced Placement) classes. Surprise! Enter a world-traveling relative who sends her plans into a tailspin when she blackmails Vassar's parents into forcing their only child to backpack with her through Southeast Asia. On a journey from Malaysia to Cambodia to the remote jungles of Laos, Vassar sweats, falls in love, hones her outdoor survival skills — and uncovers a family secret that turns her whole world upside-down. Vassar Spore can plan on one thing: she'll never be the same again.

Book Summary:

Help underserved high-potential students claim their right to an education that addresses their unique needs. In gifted education, an important and contentious issue that has yet to be sufficiently addressed is the systemic underrepresentation of gifted students who have been discriminated against in school-based gifted and advanced learner programs because of their race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or other realities. Empowering Underrepresented Gifted Students gives a voice to those students and brings their stories into focus. With chapters written by student and expert scholars who specialize in addressing the structural inequity and educational inequality in gifted and advanced learner programs, Empowering Underrepresented Gifted Students recommends practices and strategies for helping underserved high-potential students claim their right to an education that addresses their unique needs. Each chapter has key takeaways and discussion questions, providing a built-in book study guide to prepare educators to engage students in conversation and to help develop their self-advocacy skills. Coeditors Dr. Joy Lawson Davis and Deb Douglas have brought together the voices of experts and students to help educators move closer to ensuring equity, access, and excellence in gifted education. By arming historically marginalized gifted students with self-advocacy strategies, these remarkable students will be better enabled to fulfill their dreams.

Book Summary:

Set in the near future of 2020, this disconcerting philosophical fantasy depicts an America devastated by a war with China that has left its populace decimated, its government a shambles, and its natural resources tainted. The hero is Ben Turnbull, a sixty-six-year-old retired investment counselor, who, like Thoreau, sticks close to home and traces the course of one Massachusetts year in his journal. Something of a science buff, he finds that his disrupted personal history has been warped by the disjunctions and vagaries of the “many-worlds” hypothesis derived from the indeterminacy of quantum theory. His identity branches into variants extending back through the past and forward into the evolution of the universe, as both it and his own mortal, nature-haunted existence move toward the end of time.

Book Summary:

Lo scorrere irreversibile della vita, il conflitto tra l’istante e l’eterno, il carattere irrecuperabile del divenire hanno occupato la riflessione degli uomini lungo tutti i secoli. Il fulminante invito oraziano («Carpe diem») è diventato volta per volta l’atteggiamento conveniente di fronte al rapido, tramontare dei giorni, oppure, al contrario, è stato elevato a simbolo negativo di una concezione edonistica dell’esistenza, da combattere in nome di una duratura legge morale. Inseguendo le interpretazioni che questo antico tema ha conosciuto nel tempo, da Lorenzo il Magnifico fino al linguaggio della pubblicità, passando attraverso Rousseau e Kierkegaard, Nietzsche e Svevo, si cerca di capire per quali vi é si possa pervenire dalla malinconia e dalla svalutazione della caducità all’incanto e al valore che si può scoprire in ciò che trascorre e finisce. L'AUTORE Matteo Palumbo è professore ordinario di Letteratura italiana presso l’Università di Napoli Federico II. Ha sviluppato i suoi studi principalmente in tre direzioni: il romanzo del Novecento, la poesia e la prosa dell’Ottocento, la cultura del Cinquecento. Collabora a riviste italiane e straniere; fa parte del comitato direttivo di Critica letteraria, di Filologia e critica e di Esperienze letterarie. Dirige la collana Letterature presso l’editore Liguori. È socio dell’Accademia Pontaniana. Ha svolto seminari e corsi presso numerose università straniere ed è stato visiting professor presso le Università di Marseille - Aix-en-Provence, di Toulouse, di Montpellier, di Nancy e presso la Johns Hopkins University (Baltimora-USA). Sue pubblicazioni principali sono: La coscienza di Svevo, Napoli, Liguori, 1976; Il secondo Svevo (insieme con F. P. Botti e G. Mazzacurati), Napoli, Liguori, 1981; Gli orizzonti della verità. Saggio su Guicciardini, Napoli, Liguori, 1984; Francesco Guicciardini, Napoli, Liguori, 1988; Carpe diem. Variazioni sul tema, Venosa, Osanna, 1995; Saggi sulla prosa di U.

Book Summary:

"Carpe Corpus investigates time as it was theorized, imagined, and lived in early modern France. Despite the current flourishing of critical attention to women poets' works, critical assessments of Renaissance temporality remain almost exclusively shaped by early modern male writers." "A reading uninformed by female poets has deprived us of a more multifaceted vision of the temporal concordia discors at work in all these poets." "In Carpe Corpus, Cathy Yandell offers original interpretations of such literary giants as Ronsard and Louise Labe, as well as lesser-known but increasingly studied poets of the sixteenth century, notably Anne de Marquets, Nicole Estienne, and Catherine des Roches. Through readings of poetry, conduct manuals, and moral treatises, this volume seeks to reconstruct the temporal landscape of early modern France."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Book Summary:

Essay aus dem Jahr 2013 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Individuum, Gruppe, Gesellschaft, Universität Augsburg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Dieses Essay beschäftigt sich mit Gerhard Schulzes Begriff der "Erlebnisgesellschaft". Eine textimmanente kritische Diskussion und textübergreifende Diskussion und Verortung im Seminar schließen sich an einen Überblick über den Text an. Schulze beschreibt in seinem Buch „Die Erlebnisgesellschaft - Kultursoziologie der Gegenwart“ die zunehmende Erlebnisorientierung unserer Gesellschaft und die Etablierung eines internationalen Erlebnismarktes, welcher sich zu einem beherrschenden Bereich des alltäglichen Lebens entwickelt. Alles, was angeboten wird, wird ausprobiert, auch das Innovative, weshalb selten etwas lange neu bleibt. Allerdings wird die Abwechslung schnell zur Wiederholung und das tägliche Erlebnisangebot zur Selbstverständlichkeit und somit geht die Suche nach dem absoluten Highlight weiter. Statt der Sehnsucht nach Schönem ist eher die Vermeidung der Langeweile das Motto. In Schulzes Argumentation leuchtet mir auf, inwieweit in den letzten Jahrzehnten in unserer Gesellschaft eine räumliche und zeitliche Entgrenzung stattgefunden hat und inwieweit diese zu dem Entstehen einer Erlebnisgesellschaft beigetragen hat. Die Möglichkeiten, die sich durch unseren Wohlstand und infolge der technischen Entwicklung bieten, haben dazu geführt, dass wir nicht mehr außenorientiert handeln müssen, sondern uns innenorientiert um neue Erlebnisse bemühen können.

Book Summary:

For centuries along the vibrant cultural corridor of the Silk Road of Central Asia, philosophers and thinkers from Hellenic, Chinese and Indian traditions debated existential issues. Out of this stimulating milieu, the iconic poet-mathematician Omar Khayyam emerged in the eleventh century, advancing a transformative intercultural philosophy in his poetic work, the Rubaiyat. Vaziri traces the themes of Khayyam’s Rubaiyat back to the highly influential philosophical traditions of the Silk Road and uncovers fascinating parallels in original works by Heraclitus, Zhuangzi (Daoism), Nagarjuna (Mahayana Buddhism), and the Upanishads. In addition, Vaziri’s elegant translation and unique classification of the verses of the Rubaiyat reveal an existential roadmap laid out by Khayyam. In this pioneering volume, Vaziri not only fuses the multiple disciplines of literature, philosophy, culture, history and medicine but also takes the approach of the Rubaiyat to a new level, presenting it as a source of wisdom therapy that stands the test of time in the face of doubt and confusion, offering a platform for self-restoration.

Book Summary:

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Romanistik - Französisch - Literatur, Note: 1,0 (sehr gut), Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (Institut für Romanische Philologie), Veranstaltung: Ronsard und die Pléiade-Dichtung (Proseminar), 28 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: 1. Allgemeiner Teil 1.1 Hinführung und Vorgehensweise Memento mori! Carpe diem! – Zwei Sätze, zwei Aufforderungen, zwei lateinische Sprichwörter. Doch wie stehen diese beiden philosophisch klingenden Bruchstücke in Zusammenhang zueinander und zur Literaturwissenschaft? Eine Antwort darauf soll im Folgenden anhand einer Untersuchung Ronsard’scher Liebesgedichte gegeben werden. Ausgewählt wurden dazu drei Gedichte, eines aus der Reihe der „Stances“, „Quand au temple nous serons...“ und zwei Sonette, „Marie, baisez-moi...“ und das berühmte „Quand vous serez bien vieille...“. Die Beispiele sind so ausgesucht, dass aus jedem der drei Gedichtzyklen Ronsards eines vertreten ist. Das erste Gedicht entstammt den „Amours de Cassandre“, die im Jahr 1552 erschie-nen sind. Das zweite ist, wie der Versanfang schon erraten lässt, den „Amours de Marie“ entnom-men, die in den Jahren 1555/56 veröffentlicht wurden, also noch in der Zeit, bevor Ronsard als „poète officiel“ am Hofe Karls IX. akzeptiert war. Das letzte und bekannteste Sonett gehört in die „Sonnets pour Hélène“, die 1578 als Ronsards Spätwerk vollendet wurden und in denen der alte und kranke Dichter versucht, sich in Erbitterung und Enttäuschung über diese späte Liebe hinweg-zutrösten. Die Texte folgen in Wortlaut und Schreibung der Ausgabe von Friedhelm KEMP und Werner von KOPPENFELS. Zu den ersten beiden Gedichten ist nahezu keine Sekundärliteratur auffindbar, dem berühmten „Quand vous serez bien vieille...“ hingegen wurde seitens der Forschung bereits einige Aufmerksamkeit gewidmet. Nach einer kurzen Erläuterung der Herkunft der Sprüche Memento mori! und Carpe diem! und einem Überblick über die Bedeutung der beiden Topoi in der Literatur sollen die oben genannten Gedichte näher betrachtet werden, wobei nur zu den ersten beiden eine genaue Interpretation ver-sucht und zum dritten aufgrund der Menge an vorliegenden Untersuchungen nur ein Bericht über ausgewählte Beiträge gegeben wird. Zum Schluss soll ein knapper Vergleich zwischen der Verar-beitung der Topoi bei Ronsard, im literarischen Werk seiner antiken Vorbilder und der Darstellung der Themen in der Unterhaltungskultur der Gegenwart Aufschluss über die Zeitlosigkeit dieser Motive geben.

Book Summary:

"Charles Van Doren has laid a feast before all of us that is irresistible." -Mortimer J. Adler This engaging love letter to reading follows the great authors and classics that transformed the world: from Aristotle and Herodotus in ancient Greece to Salinger and Heinlein in 20th century America. Like a professor whose enthusiasm enwraps his students, Van Doren explains what's wonderful in the books you've missed and awakens your desire to reopen the books you already know. Divided chronologically by the periods in which these classics were written, each book is put in its historical context and brought to life by Van Doren's brilliant analysis. The Joy of Reading delves into a wide range of genres-fiction, poetry, drama, children's books, philosophy, history and science. This is the one book that brings together everything you need to know about the classics you missed and ignites your passion to read and reread the greatest books the world has ever known. This book is the fruit of a lifelong love affair. Reading, I believe, is my favorite thing to do; books and I have been inseparable almost as long as I can remember ... To this day, I become distressed if I am anywhere without a book, a magazine, a newspaper, any scrap of paper to read .... I like the smell of books, certainly the feel of them. Life without books would be, for me, a vacant horror." -Charles Van Doren "Nothing recommends the joy of reading better than the communication of it by a person who has spent a lifetime enriched by the delights of reading. Charles Van Doren is that kind of reader. He has laid a feast before us that is irresistible." -Mortimer J. Adler, author of How to Read a Book "Mr. Van Doren is that rarity, a truly well read man who reads not for professional purposes but for pleasure. His book spurs us on to explore more deeply and joyfully the infinitely varied terrain of good books." -Clifton Fadiman, author of The New Lifetime Reading Plan: The Classical Guide to World Literature

Shameless Exploitation in Pursuit of the Common Good

Book Summary:

“There are three rules for running a business; fortunately, we don’t know any of them.” In 1978, Paul Newman and A. E. Hotchner decided that rather than just distribute Paul’s own salad dressing at Christmas to neighbors, they would offer it to a few local stores. Freewheeling, irreverent entrepreneurs, they conceived of their venture as a great way to poke fun at the mundane method of traditional marketing. Much to their surprise, the dressing was enthusiastically received. What had started as a lark quickly escalated into a full-fledged business, the first company to place all-natural foods in supermarkets. From salad dressing to spaghetti sauce, to popcorn and lemonade, Newman’s Own became a major player in the food business. The company’s profits were originally donated to medical research, education, and the environment, and eventually went to the creation of the eight Hole in the Wall Gang camps for children with serious illnesses. In these pages Newman and Hotchner recount the picaresque saga of their own nonmanagement adventure. In alternating voices, playing off one another in classic “Odd Couple” style, they describe how they systematically disregarded the advice of experts and relied instead on instinct, imagination, and mostly luck. They write about how they hurdled obstacle after obstacle, share their hilarious misadventures, and reveal their offbeat solutions to conventional problems. Even their approach to charity is decidedly different: every year they give away all the company’s profits, empty the coffers, and start over again. The results of this amazing generosity are brought to life in heartwarming stories about the children at their camps. With rare glimpses into their zany style and their compassion for those less fortunate, Newman and Hotchner have written the perfect nonmanagement book, at once playful, informative, and inspirational.

Book Summary:

Essay from the year 2011 in the subject English - Grammar, Style, Working Technique, grade: A, Lindenwood University (-), language: English, abstract: Back in the seventeenth century, a woman’s responsibility was to preserve her virginity until marriage. A woman who had sexual intercourse before her wedding was considered undesirable and a slut. At the same time, men had sexual needs and desires that they wanted to fulfill, may they be married to the woman of their choice or not. Dealing with this issue of virginity and the concept of using time to its fullest (carpe diem—Latin for “seize the day”) are two of the most famous poems of this time. Robert Herrick’s “To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time” as well as Andrew Marvell’s “To His Coy Mistress” have a similar opinion about how a woman should use her youth and virginity, but have different ideas about whether to get married first or not.

Book Summary:

Atkinson uses Qoheleth's work ethic to provide an analysis of Ecclesiastes, utilising the writings of St Bonaventure and Martin Luther. Reading Ecclesiastes within a penitential framework, Bonaventure offers a version of the contemptus mundi tradition that is rooted in his metaphysics. His commentary is ethically significant for the way he detects the vice of curiousity precipitating a perceptual rupture wherein vanity comes to signify sin and guilt. Luther, on the other hand, interprets Solomon as a wise economic-political administrator who preaches the good news of God's involvement in quotidian existence. This understanding enables Luther to read Ecclesiastes eschatologically, with labour being seen as a locus of divine activity. One may thus read Solomon's refrain as an invitation to labour with the expectation of receiving God's gifts in the present. Finally, Atkinson suggests that Ecclesiastes enhances current conversations regarding the theology and ethics of work by working the doctrinal foci of protology and eschatology through Christology. The presence of the Word, then, can be found now only in the preaching and sacraments of the church, but also in the labour of the worker.

Book Summary:

Leggere l'Ecclesiaste. Studio di Craig G. Bartholomew. Questo volume esplora l'ermeneutica e l'esegesi biblica, mantenendo un'attenzione prioritaria alla lettura dell'Ecclesiaste. Un'attenzione particolare e rivolta allo sviluppo del metodo storico critico nel contesto della modernita e alle sue implicazioni per la lettura dell'Ecclesiaste. At the end of the twentieth century there is no agreement among scholars about how to read Ecclesiastes. Some read it as deeply pessimistic while others read it as an affirmation of joy. Ecclesiastes is thus a fertile site for an analysis of the hermeneutical issues impacting on biblical exegesis. This volume explores the interface of hermeneutics and biblical exegesis while keeping its focus on the reading of Ecclesiastes. Particular attention is paid to the development of the historical critical method in the context of modernity and its implications for the reading of Ecclesiastes. The postmodern turn in biblical interpretation is analysed in terms of the challenge it presents to historical criticism. It is argued in conclusion that Christian scholars ought to practice a biblical hermeneutic shaped integrally by a Christian perspective and the contours of such an approach are mapped out. From this perspective ecclesiastes is read as an ironie exposure of an empiricistic epistemology which seeks wisdom through personal experience and analysis alone.

Book Summary:

This unique book combines memoir, exegesis, and theological reflection to demonstrate the ongoing significance of the book of Ecclesiastes to the Christian life in the twenty-first century. Through exegesis of Old Testament passages and theological reflections on Ecclesiastes, the author deals with issues of abuse, trauma, and forgiveness. For thousands of years, God's grace and glory have been shining in the stories and poems of broken people: the Psalms give voice to our darkest moments of pain and anger, showing us that God welcomes our rawest emotions; Ecclesiastes and Job help us confront suffering and injustice in life; and the failures of Noah, Jacob, and David help keep us tethered to the God of the Bible. These stories and poems still speak to the brokenness of humans today, beckoning us into the arms of the God who made us and loves us even though we too are riddled with sin, hurt, and a longing to be loved. By working through the book of Ecclesiastes, we can let the Teacher's words seep into our hearts and shape our understanding of who God is and how he helps us navigate this upside-down world. This short and engaging book enables us to see how one part of the Old Testament—Ecclesiastes—can help us navigate a world in which things do not always turn out as they should.

Impossible Desire and the Limits of Knowledge in Renaissance Poetry

Book Summary:

Impossible Desire and the Limits of Knowledge in Renaissance Poetry examines the limits of embodiment, knowledge, and representation at a disregarded nexus: the erotic carpe diem poem in early modern England. These macabre seductions offer no compliments or promises, but instead focus on the lovers' anticipated decline, and—quite stunningly given the Reformation context—humanity's relegation not to a Christian afterlife but to a Marvellian 'desert of vast Eternity.' In this way, a poetic trope whose classical form was an expression of pragmatic Epicureanism became, during the religious upheaval of the Reformation, an unlikely but effective vehicle for articulating religious doubt. Its ambitions were thus largely philosophical, and came to incorporate investigations into the nature of matter, time, and poetic representation. Renaissance seduction poets invited their auditors to participate in a dangerous intellectual game, one whose primary interest was expanding the limits of knowledge. The book theorizes how Renaissance lyric's own fragile relationship to materiality and time, and its self-conscious relationship to making, positioned it to grapple with these 'impossible' metaphysical and representational problems. Although attentive to poetics, the book also challenges the commonplace view that the erotic invitation is exclusively a lyrical mode. Carpe diem's revival in post-Reformation Europe portends its radicalization, as debates between man and maid are dramatized in disputes between abstractions like chastity and material facts like death. Offered here is thus a theoretical reconsideration of the generic parameters and aspirations of the carpe diem trope, wherein questions about embodiment and knowledge are also investigations into the potentialities of literary form.

Book Summary:

Metal, Rap, and Electro in Tunisia is a trip into the music scenes of Tunisia after the Arab Springs. Based on extensive field research, the book explores the social life of heavy metal, rap, and electronic music in a North African country whose mass revolution of 2010/2011 led the way to a troubled and yet unique democracy. What is it like to be part of a music scene in a place affected by poverty and inequality? How do the many conflicted souls of Tunisian Islam shape local metal, rap, and electro? What are the social and cultural stakes for music in a nation constantly represented as a bridge between Europe and the Middle East? How do music scenes articulate the complex political scenario that followed the Tunisian revolution of 2011? Barone answers these questions by offering new theoretical reflections on youth cultures and popular music in a global perspective, and thus pushing the debate on "post-subcultures" and scenes forward. At the same time, the book offers a dense sociological analysis of youth and music in reality - the Tunisian one - whose society, culture, religion, and politics are at stake in a historical transformation.

Posthumous Love

Book Summary:

For Dante and Petrarch, posthumous love was a powerful conviction. Like many of their contemporaries, both poets envisioned their encounters with their beloved in heaven—Dante with Beatrice, Petrarch with Laura. But as Ramie Targoff reveals in this elegant study, English love poetry of the Renaissance brought a startling reversal of this tradition: human love became definitively mortal. Exploring the boundaries that Renaissance English poets drew between earthly and heavenly existence, Targoff seeks to understand this shift and its consequences for English poetry. Targoff shows that medieval notions of the somewhat flexible boundaries between love in this world and in the next were hardened by Protestant reformers, who envisioned a total break between the two. Tracing the narrative of this rupture, she focuses on central episodes in poetic history in which poets developed rich and compelling compensations for the lack of posthumous love—from Thomas Wyatt’s translations of Petrarch’s love sonnets and the Elizabethan sonnet series of Shakespeare and Spencer to the carpe diem poems of the seventeenth century. Targoff’s centerpiece is Romeo and Juliet, where she considers how Shakespeare’s reworking of the Italian story stripped away any expectation that the doomed teenagers would reunite in heaven. Casting new light on these familiar works of poetry and drama, this book ultimately demonstrates that the negation of posthumous love brought forth a new mode of poetics that derived its emotional and aesthetic power from its insistence upon love’s mortal limits.
