READING: Michael Punke De spookverschijning Het boek dat de inspiratiebron is van de film The Revenant Lees het boek dat de inspiratiebron is van de internationale bioscoopfilm The Revenant Het is 1823. Langs de rivier de Missouri trekt de 36-jarige avonturier Hugh Glass met een groep pelsjagers een onbekend en zeer gevaarlijk gebied in. Glass ondervindt dit gevaar aan den lijve wanneer hij op brute wijze wordt aangevallen door een grizzlybeer. Dagenlang balanceert hij op het randje van de dood. Zijn medereizigers houden het voor gezien: ze stelen zijn wapens en laten Glass alleen in de wildernis achter. De woede om deze laffe daad geeft de stervende man nieuwe kracht en hij zweert wraak. In de maanden die volgen onderneemt Glass - alleen en ongewapend - een onvoorstelbare tocht van bijna 5000 kilometer door de onherbergzame Amerikaanse wildernis, voortgedreven door de drang naar vergelding. De spookverschijning is een avonturenthriller over verraad en wraak, gebaseerd op een waargebeurde geschiedenis. Michael Punke is de Amerikaanse ambassadeur en permanent vertegenwoordiger bij de Wereldhandelsorganisatie in Genève. Hij groeide op in Wyoming, vlak bij de route die Hugh Glass aflegde. Nu verfilmd als The Revenant door de Oscar-genomineerde regisseur Alejandro González Iñárritu (Babel, Biutiful en 21 Grams), met in de hoofdrollen Leonardo DiCaprio en Tom Hardy.

READING: A look at the forgotten ancestors of the modern-day vampire, many of which have very different characteristics • Looks at the many ancestoral forms of the modern vampire, including shroud eaters, appesarts, and stafi • Presents evidence for the reality of this phenomenon from pre-19th-century newspaper articles and judicial records Of all forms taken by the undead, the vampire wields the most powerful pull on the modern imagination. But the countless movies and books inspired by this child of the night who has a predilection for human blood are based on incidents recorded as fact in newspapers and judicial archives in the centuries preceding the works of Bram Stoker and other writers. Digging through these forgotten records, Claude Lecouteux unearths a very different figure of the vampire in the many accounts of individuals who reportedly would return from their graves to attack the living. These ancestors of the modern vampire were not all blood suckers; they included shroud eaters, appesarts, nightmares, and the curious figure of the stafia, whose origin is a result of masons secretly interring the shadow of a living human being in the wall of a building under construction. As Lecouteux shows, the belief in vampires predates ancient Roman times, which abounded with lamia, stirges, and ghouls. Discarding the tacked together explanations of modern science for these inexplicable phenomena, the author looks back to another folk belief that has come down through the centuries like that of the undead: the existence of multiple souls in every individual, not all of which are able to move on to the next world after death.

Can Newbury and Amelia defeat him and get the clockwork organ back to the Fixer in time to save Veronica? And can they do so without Newbury going so far into the dark side of occult magic that he can never return? Meanwhile, Sir Charles Bainbridge is the only one of their team left in London to struggle with a case involving a series of horrific crimes.

The Book Folklore and the Fantastic in Nineteenth Century British Fiction

Genre Literary Criticism
Pages 248
ISBN 9781317134657
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Jason Marc Harris's ambitious book argues that the tensions between folk metaphysics and Enlightenment values produce the literary fantastic. Demonstrating that a negotiation with folklore was central to the canon of British literature, he explicates the complicated rhetoric associated with folkloric fiction. His analysis includes a wide range of writers, including James Barrie, William Carleton, Charles Dickens, George Eliot, Sheridan Le Fanu, Neil Gunn, George MacDonald, William Sharp, Robert Louis Stevenson, and James Hogg. These authors, Harris suggests, used folklore to articulate profound cultural ambivalence towards issues of class, domesticity, education, gender, imperialism, nationalism, race, politics, religion, and metaphysics. Harris's analysis of the function of folk metaphysics in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century narratives reveals the ideological agendas of the appropriation of folklore and the artistic potential of superstition in both folkloric and literary contexts of the supernatural.

READING: In life there are events common to all individuals as consequence of the simple fact that they are alive. Study of the ways in which these common events affect different individuals of differing cultural backgrounds helps to guide us to a more informed understanding of the human experience. In The Individual and Community Life this has been achieved in four parts. In Part One the notable stages of the life cycle - birth, death, childhood and maturity - are considered. However, there are many external, independent and varied influences which shape a life. Part Two widens the scope of topics examined before going on to more directly consider the placing of the individual within a community. The different types of community, from secure settlements to travelling societies are then explored in Part Three. The final section looks at a different kind of community, that of the wider ethnic and social world and of the results of immigration into Scotland, where a large variety of cultures have arrived, forcing the Scottish community to reassess itself. The Individual and Community Life is the fourth volume to appear in the planned fourteen volume series, A Compendium of Scottish Ethnology, the major project of the European Ethnological Research Centre. The overall aim of this project being to examine, in their international setting, the interlocking strands of history, language and traditional culture that go into the making of a national identity.

READING: You know Judy Berry, don't you? You ought to she's the best-selling African-American poet of the 21st century, winning the hearts of millions of women and a few sensitive men with her romantic and inspiring poetry. With her jive-talking radio star husband Martial, their teenager Zora and their second-grader Rodney, they complete a family that lives like the Huxtables and the Banks from Bel-Air the so-called good life.' Yet under all the fame and fortune, Judy secretly suffers from the heat of the abortion she had in her teen years. It seems like everything constantly reminds her of the old deed like local demonstration rallies and Martial's radio show. Occasionally she also has nightmares about it, and in each nightmare, there is a furious firebird that blows its flames and caws in sheer rage, leaving her too puzzled and petrified to sleep at night. Someone else knows her secret very well, though the Ashman, the maniacal leader of a deadly, anti-abortion extremist organization, who has targeted the renowned poet and placed her at the very top of his extensive agenda. Strangely he appears in Judy's dreams that become living horrors. Old emotions primarily wrath return like hell-spawned revenants as things around her begin to burn alive and inanimate alike. And as the never-ending fire between pro-choice activists and pro-life radicals flares up high, Judy has no choice but to take a stand against the Ashman's blaze of terror and prevent her world from being reduced to nothing but ashes.
