Summary Book Review My Autobiography of Carson McCullers :
Download or read book in PDF My Autobiography of Carson McCullers written by Jenn Shapland and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2021-02-25 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: FINALIST FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARD Longlisted for the Andrew Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Non-fiction How do you tell the real story of someone misremembered - an icon and idol - alongside your own? Jenn Shapland's celebrated debut is both question and answer: an immersive, surprising exploration of one of America's most beloved writers, alongside a genre-defying examination of identity, queerness, memory, obsession, and love. Shapland is a graduate student when she first uncovers letters written to Carson McCullers by a woman named Annemarie. Though Shapland recognizes herself in the letters, which are intimate and unabashed in their feelings, she does not see McCullers as history has portrayed her. Her curiosity gives way to fixation, not just with this newly discovered side of McCullers's life, but with how we tell queer love stories. Why, Shapland asks, are the stories of women paved over by others' narratives? What happens when constant revision is required of queer women trying to navigate and self-actualize in straight spaces? And what might the tracing of McCullers's life?her history, her secrets, her legacy?reveal to Shapland about herself? In smart, illuminating prose, Shapland interweaves her own story with McCullers's to create a vital new portrait of one of our nation's greatest literary treasures, and shows us how the writers we love and the stories we tell about ourselves make us who we are.

Summary Book Review Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 1 :
Download or read book in PDF Autobiography of Mark Twain, Volume 1 written by Mark Twain and published by Univ of California Press. This book was released on 2010-11-15 with total page 760 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "I've struck it!" Mark Twain wrote in a 1904 letter to a friend. "And I will give it away—to you. You will never know how much enjoyment you have lost until you get to dictating your autobiography." Thus, after dozens of false starts and hundreds of pages, Twain embarked on his "Final (and Right) Plan" for telling the story of his life. His innovative notion—to "talk only about the thing which interests you for the moment"—meant that his thoughts could range freely. The strict instruction that many of these texts remain unpublished for 100 years meant that when they came out, he would be "dead, and unaware, and indifferent," and that he was therefore free to speak his "whole frank mind." The year 2010 marks the 100th anniversary of Twain's death. In celebration of this important milestone and in honor of the cherished tradition of publishing Mark Twain's works, UC Press is proud to offer for the first time Mark Twain's uncensored autobiography in its entirety and exactly as he left it. This major literary event brings to readers, admirers, and scholars the first of three volumes and presents Mark Twain's authentic and unsuppressed voice, brimming with humor, ideas, and opinions, and speaking clearly from the grave as he intended. Editors: Harriet E. Smith, Benjamin Griffin, Victor Fischer, Michael B. Frank, Sharon K. Goetz, Leslie Myrick

I have attempted to write the following account of myself, as if I were a dead man in another world looking back at my own life. Nor have I found this difficult, for life is nearly over with me. I have taken no pains about my style of writing.
Download or read book in PDF Theology as Autobiography written by Colby Dickinson and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2020-03-17 with total page 276 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Autobiographical writings on faith frequently come from the lives of ordinary persons whose struggles with faith are often lived at the margins of the church, academy, and society. Yet these voices have the potential to reshape the ways in which each of these fields function. To find out what it means to stand before God with all of one's humanity on display is to engage in not only the act of confession, but to demonstrate a bold theological reflection that needs to be more explicitly understood. By turning to spiritual autobiographies as theological source texts, we learn to place our emphasis where it matters most, on the people whose lives of faith move us deeply and cause us to re-examine our own lives in light of their witness. Moving through a range of ancient, early modern, and contemporary spiritual writers in order to demonstrate a profound connection that unites them all, this book portrays how a critical self-examination of one's most personal, internal fractures (our "poverty" as it were) is the only way to develop a life of faith--the dual meaning of the word "confession," which expresses both a revealing of one's sins, or brokenness, and the articulation of what one believes.

Download or read book in PDF White Gold written by Peter Burns and published by Birlinn. This book was released on 2013-10-30 with total page 368 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: White Gold is a study of how and why England, the biggest and wealthiest rugby country on the planet, never dominated the game it invented on a global scale - until Clive Woodward took charge from 1997 to 2004. Ten years on from the greatest triumph in English rugby history, Peter Burns traces the key influences that shaped Woodward's attitude to playing and coaching, inspiring how he introduced business practices to the sporting arena and created an elite culture for his England players. By leaving no stone unturned in his preparation, demanding a no-excuses mindset in his team and accepting nothing but the very best from players, backroom staff and the RFU, Woodward drove England to the pinnacle of the rugby world. With in-depth profiles of each of the key players in the team, the management and the coaching set-up, exclusive new interview material and a style that recalls great sporting stories such as Invictus, Moneyball, The Damned United and The Grudge, White Gold analyses the 2003 World Cup campaign like never before, revealing fascinating new insights into the extraordinary journey that Woodward and his team enjoyed as they changed the rugby landscape forever.

Download or read book in PDF A Memoir of the New Left written by Aeron Haynie and published by Univ. of Tennessee Press. This book was released on 2009 with total page 154 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "In Charles Haynie's autobiography we get a rare look into the development of a great social movement through the quietly dramatic experiences of a rank-and-file member of that movement. This is valuable social history, but more important, Charles Haynie's life is an inspiration for a new generation." --Howard Zinn Charles Haynie's life as an activist and organizer began while he was a graduate student at Cornell University. Young, fiercely intelligent, and spirited, Haynie had a political awakening during the early antinuclear movement in the late 1950s. It was the beginning of a long career of tireless fighting for social justice--a career that Haynie himself compellingly describes in A Memoir of the New Left. From 1963 to 1965, Haynie was field director for a voter registration project in Tennessee. In 1967 he worked with Massachusetts Political Action for Peace as an organizer of antiwar delegations in all twelve congressional districts of the state. Haynie also ran for a Buffalo Common Council seat in 1979 and helped organize the Buffalo Unity Day rally to ease racial tensions. During his most intense period of political activism, Haynie helped organize, participated in, and was arrested during the Freedom Rides in which scores of civil rights protesters rode buses throughout the segregated South. Later, he participated in a variety of intentional communities designed to educate and support oppressed minorities in rural and urban areas. He died in 2001. Unlike other histories of the American left, which tend to celebrate famous personalities, Haynie's memoir focuses on how ordinary citizens become politicized. In the process, this account raises questions about the nature of democracy and how political change occurs. Written in an engaging, reflective, often humorous style, Haynie examines how his political awakening both disrupted and enriched his personal life. Aeron Haynie, the daughter of Charles Haynie, is associate professor of English at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay. She is the coeditor, with Pamela Gilbert and Marlene Tromp, of Mary Elizabeth Braddon in Context and the coeditor, with Regan Gurung and Nancy Chick, of Exploring Signature Pedagogies. Timothy S. Miller lives in Dallas, Texas with his wife and daughter. He's been a ranch-hand, waiter, contract driver, professional clown and spent ten years in global wealth management. Douglas Dowd was a longtime professor at Cornell University before his retirement. An economic historian and political activist, his most recent books include Capitalism and Its Economics: A Critical History and Understanding Capitalism: Critical Analysis from Karl Marx to Amatya Sen.
Summary Book Review The Life and Times of Charlie Chaplin :
Download or read book in PDF The Life and Times of Charlie Chaplin written by Nandini Saraf and published by Prabhat Prakashan. This book was released on 2021-01-19 with total page 193 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Charlie Chaplin, the universal comic icon, who with his lovable portrayal of a ‘tramp’made and still makes the world laugh, continues to live in popular memory. The Hitler’s toothbrush moustache, the bowler or derby hat, the coat a size or two too small, the baggy trousers, the floppy shoes and the cane made him the most unforgettable character. The mere mention of his name conjures a picture of him as the tramp. One of the most pivotal stars of the early silent era of Hollywood, Charlie Chaplin’s films made everyone laugh and cry at the same time. The world cinema is indebted to him for films like ‘The Kid’, ‘The Gold Rush’, ‘The Circus,’ ‘City Light’, ‘Modern Times’ and ‘The Great Dictator’. An enigma to the world, people have vast curiosity about his life and his body of work. This book is an attempt to unravel the various aspects of his life and his struggles. The happiness and the despair, the controversies and the acclaim are all revealed in this authentic biography of this great legend.

Download or read book in PDF The Ilse written by Wayne Patterson and published by University of Hawaii Press. This book was released on 2000-01-01 with total page 376 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: On January 13, 1903, the first Korean immigrants arrived in Hawai'i. Numbering a little more than a hundred individuals, this group represented the initial wave of organized Korean immigration to Hawai'i. Over the next two and a half years, nearly 7,500 Koreans would make the long journey eastward across the Pacific. Most were single men contracted to augment (and, in many cases, to offset) the large numbers of existing Chinese and Japanese plantation workers. Although much has been written about early Chinese and Japanese laborers in Hawai'i, until now no comprehensive work had been published on first-generation Korean immigrants, the ilse. Making extensive use of primary source material from Korea, Japan, the continental U.S., and Hawai'i, Wayne Patterson weaves a compelling social history of the Korean experience in Hawai'i from 1903 to 1973 as seen primarily through the eyes of the ilse. Japanese surveillance records, student journals, and U.S. intelligence reports--many of which were uncovered by the author--provide an "inner history" of the Korean community. Chapter topics include plantation labor, Christian mission work, the move from the plantation to the city, picture prides, relations with the Japanese government, interaction with other ethnic groups, intergenerational conflict, the World War II experience, and the postwar years. The Ilse is an impressive and much-needed contribution to Korean American and Hawai'i history and significantly advances our knowledge of the East Asian immigrant experience in the United States.
Download or read book in PDF Clio's Laws written by Mauricio Tenorio-Trillo and published by University of Texas Press. This book was released on 2019-12-16 with total page 271 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Offering a unique perspective on the very notions and practices of storytelling, history, memory, and language, Clio’s Laws collects ten essays (some new and some previously published in Spanish) by a revered voice in global history. Taking its title from the Greek muse of history, this opus considers issues related to the historian’s craft, including nationalism and identity, and draws on Tenorio-Trillo’s own lifetime of experiences as a historian with deep roots in both Mexico and the United States. By turns deeply ironic, provocative, and experimental, and covering topics both lowbrow and highbrow, the essays form a dialogue with Clio about idiosyncratic yet profound matters. Tenorio-Trillo presents his own version of an ars historica (what history is, why we write it, and how we abuse it) alongside a very personal essay on the relationship between poetry and history. Other selections include an exploration of the effects of a historian’s autobiography, a critique of history’s celebratory obsession, and a guide to reading history in an era of internet searches and too many books. A self-described exile, Tenorio-Trillo has produced a singular tour of the historical imagination and its universal traits.
