Item Description: Counterpoint, 2010. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: In this mesmerizing debut novel, Michael Sledge creates an intimate portrait of the beloved poet Elizabeth Bishop -- of her life in Brazil and her relationship with her lover, the dazzling, aristocratic Lota de Macedo Soares. Sledge artfully draws from Bishop's lifelong correspondences and biography to imagine the poet's intensely private world, revealing the literary genius who lived in conflict with herself both as a writer and as a woman. A seemingly idyllic existence in Soares's glass house in the jungle gives way to the truth of Bishop's lifelong battle with alcoholism, as well as her eventual status as one of modernism's most prominent writers. Though connected to many of the most famous cultural and political figures of the era, Soares too is haunted by her own demons. As their secrets unfold, the sensuous landscape of Rio de Janeiro, the rhythms of the samba and the bossa nova, and the political turmoil of 1950s Brazil envelop Bishop in a world she never expected to inhabit. The More I Owe You is a vivid portrait of two brilliant women whose love for one another pushes them to accomplish enduring works of art. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_1582435766

Item Description: Basic Books, 2006. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: What gave Christopher Columbus the confidence in 1492 to set out across the Atlantic Ocean? What persuaded the king and queen of Spain to commission the voyage? It would be convenient to believe that Columbus and his men were uniquely courageous. A more reasonable explanation, however, is that Columbus was heir to a body of knowledge about seas and ships acquired at great cost over many centuries. Fish on Friday tells a new story of the discovery of America. In Brian Fagan's view, that discovery is the product of the long sweep of history: the spread of Christianity and the radical cultural changes it brought to Europe, the interaction of economic necessity with a changing climate, and generations of unknown fishermen who explored the North Atlantic in the centuries before Columbus. The Church's tradition of not eating meats on holy days created a vast market for fish that could not be fully satisfied by fish farms, better boats, or new preservation techniques. Then, when climate change in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries diminished fish stocks off Norway and Iceland, fishermen were forced to range ever farther to the west - eventually discovering incredibly rich shoals within sight of the Nova Scotia coast. In Ireland in 1490, Columbus could well have heard about this unknown land. The rest is history. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0465022847

Item Description: Oxford University Press, 1990. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "Really makes the war come alive and [is] more meaningful for the students."--Paul R. Waibel, Belhaven College"All college students should be required to make an analysis of the greatest and most tragic human drama-war. Paul Fussell''s Wartime is vividly & coherently written and he cuts through the patriotic myths and stereotypes of WWII. It should be required reading for all studying the social sciences even if only to obtain an objective viewpoint in regard to war."--Dr. Robert Vorley Russell, Nova Univ."Overall it''s an excellent book for an upper-level undergraduat course: Well-written, nicely chosen quotations, graphically realistic for the uninitiated."--John Kutolowski, SUNY Brockport"This book allows my students to be as close to the human experience of war as possible, to understand the mentality and experience of those who fought."--Jeffrey S. McIllwain, Penn State University"Perceptive and engaging.''Astonishing'' is a key word for the entire book."--Canadian Literature"A generally fine, informative, sometimes passionate study of a time, some people, and many works that educated me once again."--George Grella, University of Rochester"Paul Fussell has written the best book I know of about World War I. Now he has written the best book I know of about the Second World War. No novel I''ve read surpasses its depiction of the awful human cost to all sides of modern warfare. I don''t think I''m exaggerating when I say it is unforgettable."--Joseph Heller"[An] engaging, elegant, and enlightening study of World War II.Funny, upsetting, at times brilliantly illuminating."--Kirkus Reviews"This brilliant, engaging cultural history quietly subverts our whitewashed collective memory of the war."--Publishers Weekly"Fussell is a wonderful writer--at once elegant and earthy. He gives us much to ponder in this volume, and, despite the grimness of the subject, considerable pleasure."--The Washington Post Book World"Clever, witty, painful, disturbing."--The Times (London)"Savagely strips away what he sees as the manifold layers of comforting illusion built up like strips of emotional insulation around the plain, nearly unbearable abomination that he believes World War II to have been.The book is [Fussell''s] cry of rage, an outburst of long suppressed yearning to describe what the war was really like."--Richard Bernstein, The New York Times"A staggering counterpoint to most popular accounts of World War II.that depict purposeful strategies and noble exploits.An important and indispensable book."--Library Journal"A riveting book.To all who lived through that war, and to those generations who wonder what all the fuss was about, this one is close to obligatory reading."--The Observer"This wonderfully impassioned and well-documented book is about World War II from the viewpoint of that minority of troops who fought it.This is a story of fighting men, of how war really goes."--The Minneapolis Star Tribune"Fussell has immaculate credentials to dissect the wartime propaganda phenomenon.Wartime is.a book for our time."--The Fort Worth Star-Telegram"Ambitious, powerfully argued, raunchy, moving, often hilarious.What distinguishes Fussell''s Wartime from the myriad memoirs by participants and accounts by allegedly objective historians is its author''s remarkable eloquence and penetrating intelligence.Fussell brings to this enterprise a unique blend of personal knowledge and finely honed control of the tools of literary scholarship."--Army"What Fussell has done in this new study is to subvert much of what has been widely believed by those who didn''t live through [World War II].Fussell presents a collage of events, insights, and memories that should be shocking to anyone raised on the sanitized, Norman Rockwellized, and Disneyfied versions of that era''s history.If this book causes World War II veterans who have remained silent to find the courage to t.

Summary: "Gribben provides rich analytical context in this compelling and a much-needed historical look at prophecy fiction. Writing the Rapture brings both the popular and trans-Atlantic side of the history of dispensationalism to life."--Amy Frykholm, author of Rapture Culture: Left Behind in Evangelical America "Crawford Gribben has accomplished an unusual feat in this fine book: he has shown why apparently "ephemeral" literature should be taken seriously and why doing so allows for very serious reflection on American religious history in general. Gribben, from Ireland, has written wisely and well on a profoundly American phenomenon." --Mark Noll, Professor of History, University of Notre Dame "How have novels depicting the end times become so popular in contemporary America? Crawford Gribben analyses the process, carefully and sympathetically, in terms of the changing evangelical perceptions of the twentieth century." --David Bebbington, Professor of History, University of Stirling. "Gribben's book is a must-read for any scholar interested in prophecy fiction specifically and twentieth and twenty-first-century Protestant fiction more generally. .This book will become a standard work for all interested in more contemporary Protestant publishing. Religious and cultural historians, as well as literary critics, will find great rewards nestled on almost every page of his work." --American Historical Review "Gribben's study is commendable for its clear descriptions of the early development and later phenomenal success of fictional depictions of the rapture. It undertakes the complicated task of placing the novels against the backdrop of American evangelical and fundamentalist traditions, maintaining a balance of perspectives throughout."--H-Pentecostalism: H-Net Reviews "The most comprehensive and informative examination to date of 'prophecy fiction'. Writing the Rapture is a must read for anyone with a scholarly interest in prophecy fiction, with the evolution of dispensationalism, or with the history of American evangelicalism." --Nova Religio.

Item Description: Catholic University of America Press, 1998. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: This collection of seventeen patristic studies is dedicated to Thomas Halton in recognition of his signal services to the field as editor, bibliographer, and interpreter. The contributors are a distinguished and ecumenical group of scholars of diverse interests and approaches. Divided into five main subdivisions -- Exegesis, Rhetoric, Anthropology: Modern and Ancient, Augustine, and the Transmission of Texts and Learning -- this volume offers much insight into the development and the current practice of research in the fields of Patristic and Late Antique Studies.The first section deals with elements of the theory and practice of exegesis from the second through the fifth century and the use of patristic commentaries in the early medieval period; each chapter highlights the central role attributed to traditional Christian belief and moral values in the interpretation of the sacred text. The second section offers commentary and analysis of addresses delivered by Christian bishops of the Greek East: Lenten,discourse, festal homilies, a semi-juridic apologia. The third section studies ancient concepts of the individual and social identity in the light modern sociological and anthropological theory; the great influence of the social sciences upon recent developments in Late Antique Studies is apparent throughout the section. The fourth examines aspects of Augustine's roles as Christian philosopher and Catholic churchman. The final section evaluates the transmission, transformation, and adaptation to new purposes of the cultural achievements of antiquity, both pagan and Christian, in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance.This volume will be of particular interest to students of theology, church history, and Early Christian Studies. Nine papers deal predominantly with Greek, and eight with Latin, sources. Most of the ancient passages are accompanied by translation. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0813209005
