But—and here is the rub that begins to generate the “tyranny of the human face”—because she is lost to him in reality, she returns to him in dreams. What is lost in the crowds of London, in the contingent, temporary identities forged on ... -- This text sets out to demonstrate the influence of street crowds and political riots on literature in the period between 1800 and 1850. Notable works from the period are used to highlight the author's argument that crowds became a rival for the representational claims of the texts themselves.

Type: BOOK - Published: 2015-11-18 - Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Every year hundreds of thousands of pilgrims from all over the world converge on Mecca and its precincts to perform the rituals associated with the Hajj and have been doing so since the seventh century. In this volume, scholars from a range of fields - including history, religion, anthropology, and literature - together tell the story of the Hajj and explain its significance as one of the key events in the Muslim religious calendar. By outlining the parameters of the Hajj from its beginnings to the present day, the contributors have produced a global study that takes in the vast geographies of belief in the world of Islam. This volume pays attention to the diverse aspects of the Hajj, as lived every year by hundreds of millions of Muslims, touching on its rituals, its regional forms, the role of gender, its representation in art, and its organization on a global scale.

It is easy to communicate. Right? Well, wrong! Any communication that does not generate the desired response can hardly be considered effective. Communities have gone to war, empires have crumbled, businesses have gone under and marriages have hit the rocks as a result of a breakdown in communication or a lack of effective communication. In Communication in Relationships, Bimbo Odukoya, an internationally acclaimed marriage counsellor, addresses the intricacies of relationships, focussing on verbal communication, non-verbal communication, listening and communication styles, as she proffers solutions to numerous marital and relationship problems. If your relationships are not working, the reason may well be that you are not communicating effectively. This book is a must-read. Pastor Bimbo Odukoya was the co-pastor of The Fountain of Life Church, Lagos-a church that is committed to raising leaders, and was the president of Single & Married, a ministry that has been widely acclaimed for preparing youths and couples for fulfilling and lasting relationships. Her popular television programme Single & Married is still being broadcast on several stations across Africa, Canada and the United Kingdom, long after her passing on to glory in December 2005. She was also the chairperson of Discovery for Women, a ministry dedicated to inspiring women in their roles as mothers and leaders. A highly-sought-after speaker, she ministered on practically every Nigerian university and polytechnic campus. This was in addition to running regular columns in several newspapers and magazines. She received numerous awards, including a couple of honorary doctorates, in recognition of her contributions to the society. She was married to Pastor Taiwo Odukoya and blessed with three children.

One of the greatest spiritual teachers of the twentieth century shares his wisdom about building loving relationships in Intimacy: Trusting Oneself and the Other. “Hit-and-run” relationships have become common in our society as it has grown more rootless, less tied to traditional family structures, and more accepting of casual sex. But at the same time, there arises an undercurrent of feeling that something is missing—a quality of intimacy. This quality has very little to do with the physical, though sex is certainly one possible door. Far more important is a willingness to expose our deepest feelings and vulnerabilities, with the trust that the other person will treat them with care. Ultimately, the willingness to take the risk of intimacy has to be grounded in an inner strength that knows that even if the other remains closed, even if that trust is betrayed, we will not suffer any permanent damage. In this gentle and compassionate guide, Osho takes his readers step-by-step through what makes people afraid of intimacy, how to encounter those fears and go beyond them, and what they can do to nourish themselves and their relationships to support more openness and trust. Osho challenges readers to examine and break free of the conditioned belief systems and prejudices that limit their capacity to enjoy life in all its richness. He has been described by the Sunday Times of London as one of the “1000 Makers of the 20th Century” and by Sunday Mid-Day (India) as one of the ten people—along with Gandhi, Nehru, and Buddha—who have changed the destiny of India. Since his death in 1990, the influence of his teachings continues to expand, reaching seekers of all ages in virtually every country of the world.

The Ethics of Intensity in American Fiction
Language: en
Pages: 224
Authors: Anthony Channell Hilfer
Categories: Literary Criticism
Type: BOOK - Published: 2014-07-03 - Publisher: University of Texas Press

Drawing upon the philosophical theories of William James, Dewey, and Mead and focusing upon major works by Whitman, Stein, Howells, Dreiser, and Henry James, Anthony Hilfer explores how these authors have structured their characters' consciousness, their purpose in doing so, and how this presentation controls the reader's moral response. Hilfer contends that there was a significant change in the mode of character presentation in American literature of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The self defined in terms of a Victorian ethic and judged adversely for its departures from that code shifted to the self defined in terms of emotional intensity and judged adversely for its failures of nerve. In the first mode, characters are almost always wrong to yield to desire; in the second, characters are frequently wrong not to and, in fact, are seen less as the sum of their ethical choices than as the process of their longings. His conclusion: modern fiction is as overbalanced toward pathos as Victorian fiction was toward ethos. but the continued dialectic between the two is a tension that ought not be resolved.
