"Joanna Picciotto's Labors of Innocence in Early Modern England is a splendid study of the origins, devlopment, and eventual decline of the Experimentalist tradition in seventeenth-and early eighteenth-century English letters. In tracing out the arc of this intellectual and professional trajectory, Picciotto engages productively with the crucial religious, socio-economic, philosophical, and literary movements associated with the ongoing labors of the `innocent eye'".---Eileen Reeves, Princetion University --

The major death-of-God theologian explores the meaning and purpose of radical theology. In The Call to Radical Theology, Thomas J. J. Altizer meditates on the nature of radical theology and calls readers to undertake the vocation of radical theology as a way of living a fully examined life. In fourteen essays, he explores how the death of God in modernity and the dissolution of divine authority have freed theology to become a mode of ultimate reflection and creative inquiry no longer bound by church sanction or doctrinal strictures. Revealing a wealth of vital models for doing radical theological thinking, Altizer discusses the work of philosophers such as Hegel, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Marion, Derrida, and Levinas, among others. Resources are also found in the work of imaginative writers, especially Milton, Blake, and Joyce. In the spirit of Joyce’s Here Comes Everybody, Altizer is convinced that theology is for everyone and that everyone has the authority to do theology authentically. An introduction by Lissa McCullough and foreword by David E. Klemm help orient the reader to Altizer’s distinctive understanding of the role of theology after the death of God.

This book is the true accounting of a German family and their struggle to remain in tact, to survive the hardships and destruction of war caused by the bombing of their home, and the city they lived in. It is the story of two women, a grand mother, the mother and two small children. It tells of the death and destruction of thousands who lived in a city that was completely destroyed by constant bombing by the British, and finalization of this destruction by creating fire storms with the final blow to the city by the Russian assault and capture of the city. The story goes on recalling the ships passage to Denmark, and the daily life and struggle of four years in a refugee camp. Additionally the book describes the subsequent displacement to other camps to reach their final destination of Heilbronn Germany and the reuniting of the family. It is the story of their plight to stay alive, remain together and find refuge with other sympathetic German families, foreign countries, other German cities and the relocation after the war.

Elizabeth Bowen was a prolific writer; her publishing career spanned five decades and during this time she wrote ten novels, over one hundred short stories and countless reviews and journal articles. While earlier novels are now acknowledged as Modernist texts, her later novels can be read through the lens of postmodernism; they can be considered variously as romantic fiction, marriage novels, war time spy thrillers and psychological drama but, throughout her novels, she consistently questioned notions of identity, sexuality and the loss of innocence. A World of Lost Innocence: The Fiction of Elizabeth Bowen offers a reading of Elizabeth Bowen’s fiction which focuses specifically on this loss, foregrounding the psychological conflicts experienced by her protagonists. It examines the subject not only across the range of her fiction, but also in relation to her unfolding narrative structures through a chronologically based discussion of her novels and selected short stories, interwoven with biographical information and drawing on unpublished letters. This book investigates the dominant kinds of innocence that Bowen represents throughout her fiction: the innocence attributed to childhood, sexual innocence and sexual morality, and political innocence, and argues that the transition from innocence to experience plays an important role in the epistemological journey faced both by Bowen’s characters and her readers.

An End To Innocence is a coming-of-age novel of the growth of Hawaii´s people following the momentous changes in Hawaii caused by the rapid development and transformation of the Islands following Statehood in 1959. Kelia starts out an average, middle-class, part-Hawaiian, part-Japanese, sheltered high school graduate who experiences tremendous growth as she relocates to the residence and dance studio of Nalani Wai, a perfectionististic hula teacher, her mother insists she take lessons from. She relocates also to be able to have access to the campus of the University Of Hawaii at Manoa, in Honolulu on the Island of Oahu. At the University Kelia becomes embroiled in political issues as well as the usual, ongoing relationship difficulties of young adulthood. By the time Kelia endures passionate but failed relationships with, in order of their occurrence, Orrie Robinson, a handsome Marine from the Southern United States, Leonard Aoti, a young, egotistical times-sales expert from her home town, and Lyle Carnarvon, a gorgeous and dedicated political activist from the mainland, she is ready to devote her life to mele hula, meli oli, the ancient chant and dance of her Hawaiian culture. However, she has not counted on Keokolo Kane, a talented part-Hawaiian professor of Commerce at the University. With Orrie Robinson, Kelia experiences the highly-charged emotions connected to a woman´s first passionate infatuation with a member of the opposite sex. With Leonard Aoti, Kelia fantisizes about the stylish home and adorable children young women are enculturated in American society to desire. With Lyle Carnarvon, Kelia experiences the mind-altering experience of becoming embroiled in a cause greater than your own selfish desires. With Keokolo Kane and the great hula teacher, Nalani Wai, Kelia becomes more in touch with her Hawaiian identity and learns to attune to the wisdom of the Hawaiian Ancients. She also learns not to live vicariously through a member of the opposite sex but to to create her own identity and choose her own life purpose.

From Homer and Shakespeare to Toni Morrison and Jonathan Safran Foer, major works of literature have a great deal to teach us about two of life’s most significant stages—growing up and growing old. Distinguised scholar Arnold Weinstein’s provocative and engaging new book, Morning, Noon, and Night, explores classic writing’s insights into coming-of-age and surrendering to time, and considers the impact of these revelations upon our lives. With wisdom, humor, and moving personal observations, Weinstein leads us to look deep inside ourselves and these great books, to see how we can use art as both mirror and guide. He offers incisive readings of seminal novels about childhood—Huck Finn’s empathy for the runaway slave Jim illuminates a child’s moral education; Catherine and Heathcliff’s struggle with obsessive passion in Wuthering Heights is hauntingly familiar to many young lovers; Dickens’s Pip, in Great Expectations, must grapple with a world that wishes him harm; and in Marjane Satrapi’s autobiographical Persepolis, little Marjane faces a different kind of struggle—growing into adolescence as her country moves through the pain of the Iranian Revolution. In turn, great writers also ponder the lessons learned in life’s twilight years: both King Lear and Willy Loman suffer as their patriarchal authority collapses and death creeps up; Brecht’s Mother Courage displays the inspiring indomitability of an aging woman who has “borne every possible blow. . . but is still standing, still moving.” And older love can sometimes be funny (Rip Van Winkle conveniently sleeps right through his marriage) and sometimes tragic (as J. M. Coetzee’s David Lurie learns the hard way, in Disgrace). Tapping into the hearts and minds of memorable characters, from Sophocles’ Oedipus to Artie in Art Spiegelman’s Maus, Morning, Noon, and Night makes an eloquent and powerful case for the role of great literature as a knowing window into our lives and times. Its intelligence, passion, and genuine appreciation for the written word remind us just how crucial books are to the business of being human. From the Hardcover edition.
