Lyrical Soul is the essence of poetic expressiveness developed from the free fl owing views of the inner depths of the psyche. These poetic combinations are manifested by way of dreams, visions and emotions inspired by life’s day to day escapades. The romantic assembly of words allows the reader to form a union with the mind, transporting you to the residence of your most private thoughts. The truest nature of ones soul is where distinct character is birthed thus creating freedom of the mind. -Lyrical Soul
This title was first published in 2001. Thomas Lovell Beddoes (1803-49) was a powerful poet of the English Romantic period, who has been and is still strangely neglected by critics. His macabre blank verse dramatic writings and his delicately balanced lyrics have both won ardent admirers such as Browning, Gosse, Pound and Christopher Ricks. Yet there are formal and generic problems in Beddoes's writings which continue to marginalize him as merely an eccentric, and the canon of Romanticism seems to have found no place for him.
This study argues compellingly that the wish to confront and master death is a key shaping force of individual plays, of Shakespeare's genres, and of his work as a whole. Focusing on "Richard II, Henry IV Part One" and "Part Two," and "Henry V," the book shows how these plays of the 1590's reflect the transition from a feudal to an early modern society. New cultural conditions necessitated new psychological and theatrical strategies for dealing with death, strategies enacted by characters within plays, by whole plays, and by genre itself. "Love's Labor's Lost" and "Romeo and Juliet" illustrate key strategies operative throughout Shakespeare's comedies and tragedies. This book offers fresh insight into individual plays. It also casts new light on the nature and function of Shakespearean genre, and on the development of the canon as a whole.

This is a policewomans career on the streets of Chicago and one of its western suburbs about five years from now. A police procedural it is based on actual current regulations. In the world where Helen Bell worked each day any officers opinions and decisions are shaped by larger inner values no police department can instill. Each cop sees a slightly different version of every situation and each career has different turning points. Turning points can be fortunate or fatal for a career. An incident involving a shooting can be legally very complex. The shooter is not always responsible for his actions. In training a recruit a subject is shot and gravely injured. As the training officer, did she order the recruit to fire? Or did the recruit in his fear and inexperience act on his own? The responsibility of the training officer would have to be court tested. In their careers things police know or hear, the believed good will of their superiors is the factual information they rely on. Otherwise people and events outside their socially limited world can decide their actions. It was at this point and with these emotions that Helen Bell became exposed to The Pazyryk Agenda.
Nationalism has recently been the focus of considerable interest, but relatively little is known about nation-building and competing identities in Spain and Portugal. In examining the roots of Iberian nationalism, and the conflicts and tensions which have come to the fore in the twentieth century, this timely collection offers a broad interdisciplinary base and socio-historical context through which to understand the region's nationalist challenges. Topics include:- how nationalism is constructed and used as a tool by political groups;- how language is used as a nationalist emblem; and- how cultural representations of nationalism manifest themselves at both a popular level and at the level of elites.This book will provide a welcome addition to Iberian studies and invaluable insights for students and specialists alike.
In the summer of 1972, during a compulsory stint in the South African military, Stephen 'Sugar' Segerman heard the music that would forever change his life. A decade later, on yet another military base, Craig Bartholomew Strydom heard the same music. It would have a profound effect. Who was this folk singer who resonated with South Africa's youth? No one could say. All that anyone knew was his name - Rodriguez - and the fact that he had killed himself on stage after reading his own epitaph. After many years of searching in a pre-internet age, Strydom with support from Segerman found the musician not dead but alive and living in seclusion in Detroit. Even more remarkable was the fact that Rodriguez, no longer working as a musician and struggling to eke out a blue-collar existence, had no idea that he had been famous for over 25 years in a remote part of the world...
