READING: From James Rebanks, the Herdwick Shepherd, comes The Shepherd's Life, a story of the Lake District and its people which could redefine the literature of rural life Some people's lives are entirely their own creations. James Rebanks' isn't. The first son of a shepherd, who was the first son of a shepherd himself, he and his family have lived and worked in and around the Lake District for generations. Their way of life is ordered by the seasons and the work they demand, and has been for hundreds of years. A Viking would understand the work they do: sending the sheep to the fells in the summer and making the hay; the autumn fairs where the flocks are replenished; the gruelling toil of winter when the sheep must be kept alive, and the light-headedness that comes with spring, as the lambs are born and the sheep get ready to return to the fells. These modern dispatches from an ancient landscape tell the story of a deep-rooted attachment to place, describing a way of life that is little noticed and yet has profoundly shaped this landscape. In evocative and lucid prose, James Rebanks takes us through a shepherd's year, offering a unique account of rural life and a fundamental connection with the land that most of us have lost. It is a story of working lives, the people around him, his childhood, his parents and grandparents, a people who exist and endure even as the world changes around them. Many stories are of people working desperately hard to leave a place. This is the story of someone trying desperately hard to stay. James Rebanks is the Herdwick Shepherd, whose account of shepherding has a strong following on Twitter (@herdyshepherd1). His family has farmed in the same area for more than six hundred years.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Hillbilly Blues is analyse van een cultuur in crisis - die van de blanke Amerikaanse arbeidersklasse. Niet eerder werd er zo scherp, en van binnenuit, over deze bevolkingsgroep geschreven. J. D. Vance vertelt hoe het is om geboren te worden met sociale en regionale ellende als een wurgkoord om je nek. Het verhaal van de familie Vance begint vol hoop, in het Amerika van na de oorlog. Zijn grootouders verhuisden naar Ohio omdat ze wilden ontsnappen aan de armoede in hun thuisstreek Kentucky. Ze bouwden een middenklassebestaan op, en hun kleinzoon (de auteur) zou uiteindelijk naar Yale Law School gaan: de American Dream. Maar dit is de oppervlakkige versie van de sage. Gaandeweg toont Vance hoe zijn familie geworsteld heeft met de eisen die dit nieuwe bestaan stelde. Het is hun nooit gelukt de geschiedenis van misbruik, alcoholisme, armoede en trauma - zo typerend voor deze groep Amerikanen - van zich af te schudden. Een ontroerende verhaal, met humor verteld en vol kleurrijke figuren. Vance maakt het verlies van de Amerikaanse droom bitter voelbaar. Dit is een eerlijk verhaal over wat het betekent als al je hoop in duigen valt. Een belangrijker boek over Amerika zul je dit jaar niet lezen.' - The Economist 'Een empathische en scherpe sociologische analyse.' - The New York Times 'Deze elegie, deze melancholische klaagzang over zijn diepe loyaliteit met een verdoemde klasse die hij achterlaat, gaat over meer dan zijn privé-verhaal. Via Vance krijgen we een inkijkje in Amerika als klassensamenleving.' - De Groene Amsterdammer

READING: Helen Macdonald, een ervaren valkenier, had nooit de behoefte een van de allerfelste roofvogels af te richten: de havik. Maar dan sterft plotseling haar vader, de bekende fotograaf en valkenier Alisdair Macdonald, in Londen, midden op straat. Overweldigd door rouw en verdriet besluit Helen een havik te nemen om haar verlies te verwerken. Door het vurige dier te temmen verkent ze haar grenzen en verandert haar leven voorgoed. In De H is van havik beschrijft Helen Macdonald hoe ze haar havik, Mabel, stapje voor stapje tam maakt. Het is een roerend en humoristisch relaas over rouwverwerking en de aantrekkingskracht van een buitengewoon beest. Macdonald betreedt onontgonnen gebied met dit hartveroverende boek dat tegelijkertijd een memoir, een boek over de natuur en een spirituele queeste is, en waarin ze onderzoekt of de dood zich laat verzoenen met het leven en de liefde.

READING: 'I am inclined to think that we want new forms . . . as well as thoughts', confessed Elizabeth Barrett to Robert Browning in 1845. The Oxford Handbook of Victorian Poetry provides a closely-read appreciation of the vibrancy and variety of Victorian poetic forms, and attends to poems as both shaped and shaping forces. The volume is divided into four main sections. The first section on 'Form' looks at a few central innovations and engagements—'Rhythm', 'Beat', 'Address', 'Rhyme', 'Diction', 'Syntax', and 'Story'. The second section, 'Literary Landscapes', examines the traditions and writers (from classical times to the present day) that influence and take their bearings from Victorian poets. The third section provides 'Readings' of twenty-three poets by concentrating on particular poems or collections of poems, offering focused, nuanced engagements with the pleasures and challenges offered by particular styles of thinking and writing. The final section, 'The Place of Poetry', conceives and explores 'place' in a range of ways in order to situate Victorian poetry within broader contexts and discussions: the places in which poems were encountered; the poetic representation and embodiment of various sites and spaces; the location of the 'Victorian' alongside other territories and nationalities; and debates about the place - and displacement - of poetry in Victorian society. This Handbook is designed to be not only an essential resource for those interested in Victorian poetry and poetics, but also a landmark publication—provocative, seminal volume that will offer a lasting contribution to future studies in the area.

Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Shakespeare and the Hunt is a book-length 2001 study of Shakespeare's works in relation to the culture of the hunt in Elizabethan and Jacobean society. The book explores topics generally unfamiliar to Shakespeareans, such as the variety of kinds of hunting in the period, the formal rituals of the hunt, the roles of Queen Elizabeth and King James as hunters, the practice of organized poaching, and the arguments both for and against hunting. Situating Shakespeare's works in this rich cultural context, Berry illuminates the plays from fresh angles. He explores, for example, the role of poaching in The Merry Wives of Windsor; the paradox of pastoral hunting in As You Like It; the intertwining of hunting and politics in The Tempest; and the gendered language of falconry in The Taming of the Shrew.

READING: This book of poetry does not read like a novel because of its rhyme, brevity and omission of detail. However, it is meant to teach, inspire, and awaken, opening eyes, ears and hearts to help examine ourselves, see who we as a people are, where we are headed and where we are taking our children, families, communities and nation, and what we can to do to help bring aboutor restorewholeness in our lives and the lives of others. The first poem in the collection, The Child Whod Come is inspired by a real and overlooked little girl caught in an unwholesome situation not of her making. Another poem, Grand Guardian, was inspired by real people. It is, though, written to a wider population who may be in the same circumstances as the individual whose silent, passionate voice we hear as we read, and the human subjects that the individual addresses. Other poems in the collection are reflections on Almighty God and the love he has for his people and creation. Still others have personal thoughts that I want to sharewith you as well as those who are special to my heart. A PASSAGE INTO LIFE is for people who are hurting; also for hopeful people, joyful people, people of faith, and people who have little faith or no faith. It is for saint and sinner alike. It is to help anyone who has been hurt mentally, physically or spiritually. It is also for anyone who harms others in a big way or small way, any way at all. I believe that everyone who finds himself or herself in trouble in this life can find a way out. You will need the help of others who love the Lord God, who genuinely care about what happens to you. They may not always seem to do things the right wayyour way. They may seem like they are hypocrites or insincere at times, or seem harsh, giving you some tough love. But they can be your stepping stone, to lift you up out of deep despair, disgrace, shame, unhappiness and hopelessness if you are willing to listen to the voice of the Lord in His grace and wisdom, and believe the Lord will help you. The voice and word of God tells us of the good and the evil things that happen in this life. When we find ourselves facing problems, troubles or the worst of evils, God can lead us to what is good and perfect through Jesus Christ. When some people have done things to harm and hurt you, call the Lord!!! God can pick you up and lead you into healing, goodness, and wholeness so that you will be able to keep on going in this life no matter what may happen or what may have happened to you in the past. It is important that you believe God is real, and that this real, living God who created us all and all things in the world and beyond, is not just somewhere out there, but always near to you and the situation you may find yourself in, whether youve been listening to him or not. Learn what God can do to and for all kinds of people and what He has done through Jesus Christ with people who lost belief and faith in God, or who have stopped paying attention to Him. If you never knew Godor about Godor you lost your belief and faith in Him, you must learn or re-learn about this Creator and keeper of us all. The Holy Scripturesthe Bible, the word of Godis the key. It is important to know that someone faithful to the Lord God can help you understand. Pray, and ask God about this. I believe in God through Jesus Christ. You may guess that I am a member of the Christian faitha sinnerwho sometimes thinks she is doing the right thing, the best thing, only to find she has made mistakes in judgment or in what she has done, without knowing better or thinking that it was right or the better thing to do at the ti
