Book Summary:

Four books and over 1900+ pages of sword and sorcery, action and adventure, plus heart racing romance fill this epic fantasy boxed set. If her family doesn't kill her, a mad god might. Thousands of seasons ago, the dark god Kaldaar was banished from Aelinae by those he called family. Now, the bonds of his exile are breaking. Many prophecies tell of a child born of both Light and Dark, an anomaly that will save Aelinae from the darkness that will surely come with Kaldaar’s return. There are many more prophecies that say this child will destroy Aelinae. They’re both right. Everything Taryn knew was a lie. Her life, her career, hell, even her family—none of it true. The moment she steps into a swirling portal that takes her from her comfortable life in London to an unnatural, yet familiar, cavern, all the deceptions told to protect her are exposed. She’s not an orphan raised by her grandfather. Her parents are not only alive, they’re powerful rulers who want to use her for their own misdeeds. But Taryn isn’t as weak as they’d hoped, nor is she as vile as they’d like. As for being an only child? Rubbish. Taryn’s siblings will manipulate and deceive to get their grubby hands on her immense power. It’ll take more than cunning to break Taryn, a fact they know far too well. Exiled from his kingdom for an oath he made as a young boy, Rhoane spent many seasons waiting for Taryn’s return. Despite himself, there’s something about Taryn that softens the hard edges of his rage. She’s his fated mate as prophesied by his goddess. The one who caused his exile. The one he’ll die protecting. Kaldaar is returning and he has a plan. One by one, he’ll destroy those who banished him to the edge of nothingness, and he’ll use Taryn to do it, even—especially—if it means she’ll die a horrific, prolonged death. Gifted with two enchanted swords, Taryn and Rhoane must learn to trust themselves and each other if Aelinae is to be saved. Hidden magic, a secret identity, and a mysterious assassin are just the beginning of Taryn’s tale. With nearly 2000 pages of adventure, betrayal, friendship, romance (with steam), mad gods, and wicked villains you’ll love to hate, the first four books in the Song of the Swords epic fantasy series will keep you turning the pages. New fans and old will dive into this fast-paced ebook bundle containing the first three books of the Song of the Swords series: The Stones of Resurrection, The Temple of Sacrifice, The Ruins of Betrayal, plus a full-length prequel that tells Rhoane's story before Taryn arrives on Aelinae The Prince of Dragons.

Book Summary:

Here is a book as joyous and painful, as mysterious and memorable, as childhood itself. I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings captures the longing of lonely children, the brute insult of bigotry, and the wonder of words that can make the world right. Maya Angelou’s debut memoir is a modern American classic beloved worldwide. Sent by their mother to live with their devout, self-sufficient grandmother in a small Southern town, Maya and her brother, Bailey, endure the ache of abandonment and the prejudice of the local “powhitetrash.” At eight years old and back at her mother’s side in St. Louis, Maya is attacked by a man many times her age—and has to live with the consequences for a lifetime. Years later, in San Francisco, Maya learns that love for herself, the kindness of others, her own strong spirit, and the ideas of great authors (“I met and fell in love with William Shakespeare”) will allow her to be free instead of imprisoned. Poetic and powerful, I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings will touch hearts and change minds for as long as people read. “I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings liberates the reader into life simply because Maya Angelou confronts her own life with such a moving wonder, such a luminous dignity.”—James Baldwin

Book Summary:

A dream of a better world is a powerful human force that inspires activists, artists, and citizens alike. In this book Tom Moylan – one of the pioneering scholars of contemporary utopian studies – explores the utopian process in its individual and collective trajectory from dream to realization. Drawing on theorists such as Fredric Jameson, Donna Haraway and Alain Badiou and science fiction writers such as Kim Stanley Robinson and China Miéville, Becoming Utopian develops its argument for sociopolitical action through studies that range from liberation theology, ecological activism, and radical pedagogy to the radical movements of 1968. Throughout, Moylan speaks to the urgent need to confront and transform the global environmental, economic, political and cultural crises of our time.

Book Summary:

“Another engaging take on Arthurian legend . . . Morris deftly blends bloody clashes of arms and mysterious enchantments with the many flavors of romance.” —Kirkus Reviews Piers is desperate to become a page to escape the dirty, tedious labor of his father’s blacksmith shop. So when a knight arrives announcing that he’s on “the quest,” Piers begs to go along. Off on a series of adventures he never dreamed possible, Piers and the knight quickly run into difficulties. The knight is slain by Parsifal who is on a quest of his own. Parsifal is unlike anyone Piers has ever met. He doesn’t behave “knightly” at all. Slowly, Piers realizes that being a knight has nothing to do with shining armor and winning jousts. And, as their journey continues, they find that to achieve their quest they must learn more than knighthood: they must learn about themselves. The tale of Parsifal has been told more than that of any other knight, but no one has ever told his story quite like Gerald Morris does in his fourth Arthurian novel, another tour de force of humor, action, magic, and, as always, true love. “Entertaining . . . Arthurian fans will be hooked by the great writing.” —School Library Journal “Libraries where Morris’s Arthurian series has a following will certainly want to add this to their fiction collections.” —Booklist

(Beyond) Posthuman Violence: Epic Rewritings of Ethics in the Contemporary Novel

Book Summary:

Neuroscience tells us that the brain is nothing but a metaphor machine capable of extracting meaning from a chaotic reality. Following Agamben, Arendt, Benjamin and Žižek, a theory of violence can be established according to which violence is a reaction on the part of the individual to the frustration generated by having her metaphor machine suppressed by the mythic narrative of the Law. In opposition to mythic violence, Benjamin posits the justice of divine violence. Divine justice is an excess of life, the very uniqueness of the metaphor machine. The individual is affected by a difficulty to communicate her metaphor machine to the Other, as if it were inexpressible. This work explores how the characters in the works of David Foster Wallace, Cormac MacCarthy, J. G. Ballard, Bret Easton Ellis, Chuck Palahniuk, William Gibson, Neal Stephenson, Maurice G. Dantec and China Mieville suffer from these limits of language and the constrictions of the Law. Through violence they look for their individual Voice, intended as their will-to-say, the ‘pure taking place of language’ (Agamben). In their struggle to be heard these characters are however deaf to the Voice of the Other. There is a need for a new Ethics of Narratives expressed through an Epic of the Voice founded on the will-to-listen, along the lines of the concept of the posthuman theorized by Rosi Braidotti. Here subjectivity is a process of constant autopoiesis dependent on the relationship the individual has with the Other and the environment around her, that is, in the reciprocal will-to-say and will-to-listen. Human beings can meet in the taking-place of language, in the place before the suppressive language of the Law is even born, in a meeting of Voices.

Book Summary:

There’s a reason why Dave Grohl is known, however naively, as “the nicest man in rock.” A reason why millions have bought his Foo Fighters albums and DVDs, his concert and festival tickets. A reason why generations have bought into his story, his dream, his self-fulfilling prophecies. Dave may not have the savant glamour of Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, but whereas Kurt dwelled in darkness, Dave was a lover, not a loner, a bringer of light. Foo Fighters: Learning to Fly is his story, and therefore the true story of the Foo Fighters—like it’s never been told before. From Grohl’s days as the new kid in Nirvana, to becoming the Grunge Ringo of the Foo Fighters, to where he is now: one of the biggest, most popular male rock stars in the world. Internationally acclaimed rock writer Mick Wall tells us how and why none of this happened by accident in a style that pulses with rock’s own rhythms. With testimony from true insiders, including former band mates, like Nirvana bass player Krist Novoselic, producers, record company executives, and those closest to Grohl and the Foos, this is the first full, explosive, no-holds-barred biography of the band and their otherwise critically bulletproof leader.

By attuning to the archetypes and integrating their wisdom, we as a species can come back into balance with the greater ecological system. Some of the shifts in understanding of these timeless stories have altered the way the energy manifests. By reconnecting directly to these sources, we can update the Message in its living form within us and our actions in the world will reflect this new, yet never forgotten, truth of our being.

Book Summary:

Tahirih Qurratu’l-‘Ayn, The Divine Female Spirit of the Age dawned upon the Earth in 1844 after thousands of years of rejection. She announced that She is the long awaited Mother Source, The Trumpet Blast, The Word of the Godhead, The Most Great Spirit that would bring the Great Reversal in which Humanity would no longer be separated from Source and the meek would inherit the Earth. The male-dominate Society rejected Her once again and called for Her Death. Prior to Her martyrdom She called out: “You can try and kill Me, but you cannot stop the emancipation of Women, nor can you kill the Spirit of the Godhead!” Thus, today Her Voice rings out again for those who have an ear! “Saffa’s book reveals a hidden Truth regarding the incarnation of the Godhead on Earth, and uncovers the constructed veils obscuring the Truth at the time that the new Spirit was expected by humankind. The author spells out the means by which knowledge of the Truth will set humanity on the promised transformational path for which it has long been waiting. She rips the veil off the premise by most religions that Messengerhood is only a bonding of a male God with a male Manifestation.” ~Ken Haley, Hot Springs, Arkansas

Book Summary:

Maybe this fulfilling-ness will be out of what Shelley had intended while he was writing this ode and so it (fulfilling-ness) will be so far away and irrelevant the very nature of the ode, but still I claim the reading will be much closer to its (the ode‘s) source. But how can this happen? How is it possible that an interpretation can be closer to the source of what it interprets while it (interpretation) is so far away the nature of what it interprets? Frankly speaking, these are hard questions. Ones maybe will never be answered rightly, maybe not even replied truly. But still, there‘s a claim in here so at least it must be tried to wrong in some sense. But before any attempt to wronging, one must see for sure what is the nature of this ode. So, it can after be shown that, when the claim arrives, the source and the nature of the ode are holding hand in hand, or they are not far away from each other but they dwell very near and nearing-ly. And for all this, one must enter the ode‘s path and read the ode from the beginning to the end, several times or as much as it is needed. So in here, there‘s not much to say that other interpreters didn‘t say. But the real relation that the other interpreters had missed is between the wind and these colors. In sixth line, the ode tells that wind carries them to their bed. In here, one must pay attention to the word ―bed‖. This word etymologically shelters the sub-meanings like ―to dig, to pierce‖. And these verbs are very powerful verbs. They have the same sense like the verbs ―to penetrate, to permeate‖. They are more powerful words. These words and verbs get their power from their tastes of intimacy. What is piercing or penetrating or permeating is what is inside, what gets inside, what enters within, what nears. That‘s the reason why, a bed is a special place for each person only. A bed is not just a sleeping and resting place or tool. A bed bears the expectation of being-most-welcoming. But still when a visitor or a guest comes to a house, he/she isn‘t welcomed or shown hospitality in bedroom. People use living room or guest room for that occasion. Because its (bed‘s) being-most-welcoming, particularly only needs, calls its owner. Its owner isn‘t the one who uses the bed regularly, or who bought it or who sits on it or who when the times come, sleeps on it. When two or three friends (mostly little girls) meets in a friend‘s house for a sleep over, they mostly spend the time not in living room or somewhere else in the house but in friend‘s room, usually on or near the bed. No matter if they talk about something or play a game or else, they do it on or around the bed. Because they don‘t just spend some time somewhere, but they share and create intimacy, while they are talking in each other and strengthening bonds of friendship, what they do actually is digging in their own soul and penetrating in others and let others penetrate in them. What they do actually is answering the call of the bed. And from another angle but with the very same reason, couples, lovers spend their night in the same bed together. Because a bed, as a most-welcoming, is where and what the digging to soul, or self happens most. When his/her little girl or boy falls asleep somewhere else, a father or a mother carries his/her child to his/her bed. This ―carrying little child to his/her bed‖ scene is one of the rare, obvious, stark images of the bed as a most-welcoming. Because when the mother or father puts the child into his/her bed, it embraces him/her. It is something essentially different from going to bed when it‟s sleeping or rest time. When someone goes to his/her bed to sleep or to rest or to watch a movie with his/her notebook and potato chips and coke, the bed is usually caught unprepared. (In here, I don‘t mean it‘s untidy, being-untidy merely means something just physical. I more mean, it is about to be used as it is just some unsacred, ordinary place or tool enough comfortable. The character that has been given to it, is just something so far away from its –bed‘s- own deepest meaning, essence.) There‘s no time for it to prepare to become most-welcoming and embraces the one who is about to sleep or to rest or to whatever to do in it. That‘s the reason why, it‘s (bed‘s) true owner is the one who inclines to it, to its call, to its essence‘s call. Beside those, when someone falls asleep somewhere else, one might wake him/her and tell to go to his/her bed. It is because as the most-welcoming, a bed is where a person belongs while sleeping. Not because it is most comfortable place for a sleeping one (everyone knows how comfy is falling-asleep and sleeping on a living-room couch in front of television) but because a person is truly with himself/herself only while sleeping in most-welcoming. There‘s no more actual ―around‖ for a sleeping one. There‘s no ―place‖ as a human being can and necessarily does be in it and also be it, like before in moments of being-awake. There‘s no more matter subject-object dualism. The time or the space can‘t behave as the same way that they behave to the awakened ones. This is the only time he/she can see, listen, hear, touch, connects with the sense of there‟s no within/inside or outside. There‘s no difference between these two. There are no sides. There‘s no ―there-is-ness‖ or ―being-there-ness‖. Of course there‘s also no conscious subject, or mind or a self to act these, but it doesn‘t matter, because firstly, consciousness or/and unconsciousness (or the other ones that has named just before) do not and can‘t hold the whole selfness in their hand, (because as it is said in philosophy histories before; a subject, a self is built on the sense/realization/creation of these sides) and secondly, the phenomenological and hermeneutic interpretation of sleep-in-most-welcoming is/includes so much more than what a word, language, thought, thinking is able to carry. Just to be clear, it has to be mentioned here that this is not the any kind of interpretation of sleeping itself. I‘m not interested in or talking about sleeping. This is about sleeping-in-most-welcoming. One can desire, need to sleep so profusely and then sleep in his/her most comfortable bed for hours and days and this can keep on for the rest of his/her life but might never sleep-in-most-welcoming. And in following these, now one can say that those ―touches, listening, hearings, connections‖ are actually a digging, a permeating. A kitchen is a kitchen because one cooks in it (the word ―kitchen‖ comes from the Latin word coquina, which comes from the Latin verb coquere, ―to cook‖). A lavatory is a lavatory because one can wash his/her hands, face etc. (the word ―lavatory‖ comes from the Latin verb lavare, ―to wash‖). And a bed is a bed because one can penetrate, permeate, pierce to himself / herself in it (or to the other owners‘ selves near or in it). The one who is, -/in/with/around/near the most-welcoming, is actually a digger, a piercer, a penetrator, ―a permeate-r‖. So, when Shelley tells that the west wind is what/who brings, carries them to their wintry beds, the poem doesn‘t mean to just the say/create/bear the motional image of ―as the wind blows, leaves moves around in the air and then land/fall in snowy ground, earth‖ but it also means to indicate the hidden meaning of bed, as the one who carries to bed, being near the bed. Of course he didn‘t think the things that have been being told in this article for the last three pages, but it doesn‘t matter, because the ode did think of these. It thought of these just to share the secret about west wind with the reader, interpreter and also with the very poet that write it. But I don‘t think Shelley heard his own ode‘s voice, call.

Book Summary:

After decades of internecine warfare, the tribes of the Tiste Edur have at last united under the Warlock King of the Hiroth. There is peace--but it has been exacted at a terrible price: a pact made with a hidden power whose motives are at best suspect, at worst, deadly. To the south, the expansionist kingdom of Lether, eager to fulfill its long-prophesized renaissance as an Empire reborn, has enslved all its less-civilized neighbors with rapacious hunger. All, that is, save one--the Tiste Edur. And it must be only a matter of time before they too fall--either beneath the suffocating weight of gold, or by slaughter at the edge of a sword. Or so destiny has decreed. Yet as the two sides gather for a pivotal treaty neither truly wants, ancient forces are awakening. For the impending struggle between these two peoples is but a pale reflection of a far more profound, primal battle--a confrontation with the still-raw wound of an old betrayal and the craving for revenge at its seething heart.

Book Summary:

Until now, the single most important unpublished work by C.G. Jung—The Black Books. In 1913, C.G. Jung started a unique self- experiment that he called his “confrontation with the unconscious”: an engagement with his fantasies in a waking state, which he charted in a series of notebooks referred to as The Black Books. These intimate writings shed light on the further elaboration of Jung’s personal cosmology and his attempts to embody insights from his self- investigation into his life and personal relationships. The Red Book drew on material recorded from 1913 to 1916, but Jung actively kept the notebooks for many more decades. Presented in a magnificent, seven-volume boxed collection featuring a revelatory essay by noted Jung scholar Sonu Shamdasani—illuminated by a selection of Jung’s vibrant visual works—and both translated and facsimile versions of each notebook, The Black Books offer a unique portal into Jung’s mind and the origins of analytical psychology.

Book Summary:

First published in 1933, "The Shape of Things to Come" is science fiction novel written by H. G. Wells. Within it, world events between 1933 and 2106 are speculated with a single superstate representing the solution to all humanity's problems. A classic example of Wellsian prophesy, this volume is highly recommended for fans of his work and of the science fiction genre. Herbert George Wells (1866 - 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as "The Time Machine" (1895), "The Invisible Man" (1897), and "The War of the Worlds" (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

Germany from Napoleon to Bismarck

Book Summary:

Thomas Nipperdey offers readers insights into the history and the culture of German nationalism, bringing to light much-needed information on the immediate prenational period of transition. A subject of passionate debates, the beginnings of German nationalism here receive a thorough-going exploration, from the dissolution of the Holy Roman Empire to Bismarck's division of the German-speaking world into three parts: an enlarged Prussian state north of the Main, an isolated Austria-Hungary in the south, and a group of Catholic states in between. This altering of power structures, Nipperdey maintains, was the crucial action on which the future of the German state hinged. He traces the failure of German liberalism amidst the rise of nationalism, turning it from a story of inevitable catastrophe toward a series of episodes filled with contingency and choice. The book opens with the seismic effect of Napoleon on the German ancien-régime. Napoleon's modernizing hegemony is shown to have led to the gradual emergence of a civil society based on the liberal bourgeoisie. Nipperdey examines the fate of this society from the revolutions of 1848-49 through the rise of Bismarck. Into this story he weaves insights concerning family life, working conditions, agriculture, industrialization, and demography as well as religion, learning, and the arts. Originally published in 1996. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

  • File Pdf: black-aliveness-or-a-poetics-of-being.pdf

Book Summary:

In Black Aliveness, or A Poetics of Being, Kevin Quashie imagines a Black world in which one encounters Black being as it is rather than only as it exists in the shadow of anti-Black violence. As such, he makes a case for Black aliveness even in the face of the persistence of death in Black life and Black study. Centrally, Quashie theorizes aliveness through the aesthetics of poetry, reading poetic inhabitance in Black feminist literary texts by Lucille Clifton, Audre Lorde, June Jordan, Toni Morrison, and Evie Shockley, among others, showing how their philosophical and creative thinking constitutes worldmaking. This worldmaking conceptualizes Blackness as capacious, relational beyond the normative terms of recognition—Blackness as a condition of oneness. Reading for poetic aliveness, then, becomes a means of exploring Black being rather than nonbeing and animates the ethical question “how to be.” In this way, Quashie offers a Black feminist philosophy of being, which is nothing less than a philosophy of the becoming of the Black world.

Book Summary:

LONGLISTED FOR THE 2022 PEN/FAULKNER AWARD FOR FICTION "Claire Oshetsky’s novel is a marvel: its language a joy, its imagination dizzying." —Rumaan Alam, New York Times bestselling author of Leave the World Behind An exhilarating, provocative novel of motherhood in extremis Tiny is pregnant. Her husband is delighted. “You think this baby is going to be like you, but it’s not like you at all,” she warns him. “This baby is an owl-baby.” When Chouette is born small and broken-winged, Tiny works around the clock to meet her daughter’s needs. Left on her own to care for a child who seems more predatory bird than baby, Tiny vows to raise Chouette to be her authentic self. Even in those times when Chouette’s behaviors grow violent and strange, Tiny’s loving commitment to her daughter is unwavering. When she discovers that her husband is on an obsessive and increasingly dangerous quest to find a “cure” for their daughter, Tiny must decide whether Chouette should be raised to fit in or to be herself—and learn what it truly means to be a mother. Arresting, darkly funny, and unsettling, Chouette is a brilliant exploration of ambition, sacrifice, perceptions of ability, and the ferocity of motherly love.
