Book Short Summary:

Carmel-by-the-Sea was established in the early 1900s and has been described as a quaint, European-like village among the trees along Central California's coast. The architectural styles that shaped the downtown character emerged predominantly in the 1920s and 1930s and were mostly Northern and Southern European-influenced Romantic Revival styles. The Court of the Golden Bough features Tudor Revival-style buildings, with medieval influence, while many of the larger buildings and hotels downtown are in the Mediterranean and Spanish Revival styles. Fairy-tale storybook designs add to the town's one-of-a-kind charm. A few Western false-front and Craftsman-style buildings from the start of the 20th century, some post-World War II modernist works in the Second and Third Bay Region styles, and ones inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright's organic architecture all add to the eclectic mix. Carmel-by-the-Sea has emphasized walking and the outdoors, with its courtyards and passageways, parks, gardens, and landscaping. Take a journey and discover the historic buildings that make up the downtown of this unique seaside town.

Book Short Summary:

‘The Sea Lady’ is ‘The Little Mermaid’ for grownups. Set in Folkestone, the story focuses on a mermaid who comes ashore, with the intent of seducing Harry Chatteris. Living under the name of Doris Thalassia Waters, the mermaid makes it her mission to disrupt his engagement and take Chatteris for herself. Can he withstand her charms, or will he abandon his betrothed? An exploration of the human condition and the desire to fetter our wilder natures, ‘The Sea Lady’ perfectly captures the conventions and attitudes of the time. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was an English writer, historian, sociologist, and journalist. His interests in technology and time travel (a term he is thought to have coined), have seen him hailed as one of the pioneers of the science-fiction genre. During his career, Wells wrote over 50 novels, alongside more than 60 short stories and numerous historical and scientific papers. Many of his most famous works have been adapted for film and television, such as ‘War of the Worlds,’ starring Tom Cruise, ‘The Island of Dr Moreau,’ starring Val Kilmer, and ‘The Invisible Man,’ starring ‘Elizabeth Moss.’

Book Short Summary:

An investigation of the geographical incongruities in Homer’s epics locates Troy on the coast of Iberia, in a conflict that changed history • Cites the rise in sea level in 1200 B.C. as leading to the invasion and victory of the Atlantean sea people over the goddess-worshipping Trojans who ruled the coasts • Identifies Troia (Troy) as part of a tri-city area that later became Lisbon, Portugal In The Triumph of the Sea Gods, Steven Sora argues compellingly that Homer’s tales do not describe adventures in the Mediterranean, but are adaptations of Celtic myths that chronicle an Atlantic coastal war that took place off the Iberian Peninsula around 1200 B.C. It was a war between the pro-goddess Celtic culture that presided over what is now Portugal and the patriarchal culture of the sea-faring Atlanteans. The invasion of the Atlantean sea peoples brought destruction to the entire region stretching from Western Europe’s Atlantic border to Egypt, Syria, and Turkey. This was a turning point not only politically but also spiritually. The goddess became demonized, as seen in myths such as Pandora’s Box in which woman was seen as the source of evil, not the origin of life, and Homer’s tale of the epic Greek and Trojan war, which was triggered by the abduction of a woman. The actual historical struggle described in Homer’s stories, Sora explains, occurred during what was the last in a series of rises in sea level that inundated various land masses (Atlantis) and permitted sea passage to areas previously accessible only by land. The “Sea Gods” (Atlanteans) attacked the tri-city region of Troia (Troy), near present-day Lisbon, which, shortly thereafter, fell victim to a devastating series of seaquakes and tsunamis. The war and the subsequent destructive weather broke the power of this seaboard civilization, leading to a wholesale invasion by the sea peoples and the rapid decline of the region’s goddess-worshipping culture that had reigned there since Neolithic times. Sora shows how Homer’s tales allow the modern world to glimpse this ancient conflict, which has been obscured for centuries.

Book Short Summary:

They are ancient. They are waiting. They are patient and prepared to battle for souls… Captain Raoul Rivera wrestled with the helm. His heart was turning to stone at the hopeless situation before him. The hurricane storm clouds rose in front of his ship like a huge impenetrable wall. He was choosing to take his ship into certain danger. He searched the deck below, his eyes making a quick scan for Miss Patterson. He quickly spotted her among the crew and rigging; everyone was making ready for the storm. She was smiling up at him as if she had been waiting for him to notice her. His heart swelled, and he knew that he would fight the devil himself to protect her. At that moment the hair on his neck stood on end. He looked over his shoulder. There on the western horizon crested what he dreaded most: the black sails of the Pirate Demon. Titus Ordonez, that dirty-evil pirate had found them. Would his luck and wit be enough to save his ship, crew and Brenda? “Lord, help me.” His whispered prayer was blown away on the wind….

E. E. Cummings' Modernism and the Classics

  • Pdf File: e-e-cummings-modernism-and-the-classics.pdf

Book Short Summary:

This volume is a major, ground-breaking study of the modernist E. E. Cummings' engagement with the classics. With his experimental form and syntax, his irreverence, and his rejection of the highbrow, there are probably few current readers who would name Cummings if asked to identify 20th-century Anglophone poets in the Classical tradition. But for most of his life, and even for ten or twenty years after his death, this is how many readers and critics did see Cummings. He specialised in the study of classical literature as an undergraduate at Harvard, and his contemporaries saw him as a 'pagan' poet or a 'Juvenalian' satirist, with an Aristophanic sense of humour. In E.E. Cummings' Modernism and the Classics, Alison Rosenblitt aims to recover for the contemporary reader this lost understanding of Cummings as a classicizing poet. The book also includes an edition of previously unpublished work by Cummings himself, unearthed from archival research. For the first time, the reader has access to the full scope of Cummings' translations from Horace, Homer, and Greek drama, as well as two short pieces of classically-related prose, a short 'Alcaics' and a previously unknown and classicizing parody of T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land. This new work is exciting in its own right and essential to understanding Cummings' development as a poet.

Book Short Summary:

First published in 1911, ‘The Sea Fairies’ is an underwater fantasy story for children by famous ‘Oz’ author L. Frank Baum. It follows the adventures of a young girl named Tiny Trot and her friend, the old sailor Cap’n Bill Weedles. They spend their days beside the sea, when one day Tiny Trot makes a wish to see a mermaid. Little does she know her wish will soon be granted, and Trot and Bill are whisked off on an underwater adventure, encountering beautiful mermaids, indignant octopuses, and an evil villain named Zog. A delightful children’s story, full of nonsense and magic. Lyman Frank Baum (1856 – 1919) was a prolific and well-known American writer. He is best known for his famous series of modern fairy tales set in the imaginary land of Oz. The first of the books, ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ is widely considered to be the first true American fairy tale and was the basis for the hugely popular 1939 classic musical ‘The Wizard of Oz’ starring Judy Garland. Born and raised in New York, Baum held a range of jobs including as a poultry farmer, clerk, and storekeeper before pursuing his talent for writing at the age of 41. He wrote 14 novels in the Oz series, as well as over 40 other novels and over 80 short stories. He died in California in 1919.

Book Short Summary:

Exploring the intersection of religious sensibility and creativity in the poetry and prose of the American modernist writer, H.D., this volume explores the nexus of the religious, the visionary, the creative and the material. Drawing on original archival research and analyses of newly published and currently unpublished writings by H.D., Elizabeth Anderson shows how the poet's work is informed by a range of religious traditions, from the complexities and contradictions of Moravian Christianity to a wide range of esoteric beliefs and practices. H.D and Modernist Religious Imagination brings H.D.'s texts into dialogue with the French theorist Hélà ̈ne Cixous, whose attention to writing, imagination and the sacred has been a neglected, but rich, critical and theological resource. In analysing the connection both writers craft between the sacred, the material and the creative, this study makes a thoroughly original contribution to the emerging scholarly conversation on modernism and religion, and the debate on the inter-relation of the spiritual and the material within the interdisciplinary field of literature and religion.

Book Short Summary:

Tryste and the Sea is the story of some of the adventures and misadventures that brought Ernest and Val Haigh to a bad end aboard Tryste, in the good old days when life for cruising sailors was easier, with less restrictions and regulations and when, pre-GPS, all navigation was still celestial.. It details how they could not resist just one more voyage, as Ernest saidwell twoa years voyage to New Zealand and back in 1977, and their second world circumnavigation in 1981. This completes the story begun by Val in her earlier book, Chasing the Dream, in which they had their young daughters as crew. Now they were on their own. They missed the company, the laughter and the help; but there was still the joy of Trystes tan sails billowing in the wind, of visiting different countries and making new friends, of the unpredictable weather and of the company of dolphins and albatrosses. There were also moments to remember for ever, like swimming off Tryste in the middle of the ocean, luxuriating in the lucent warm blue water, a thousand miles from land.

Book Short Summary:

"Indonesia is a country endowed with a wealth of colorful cultures and flora and fauna. The land provides endless source of inspiration for anyone to create work and etch traces of significance on the mother land. Martha Tilaar is one of these people. Through her journey in cosmetics for the past 42 years, she has made her contribution by pioneering in the opening of a chapter in the history of in the creation of Indonesian makeup color trend. Through this book Martha shares with her fellow Indonesians her stories and journey in creating and processing Indonesian color trend. She describes here how the archipelago has inspired her in creating color trend for Indonesian women. She explicitly looks back to the 80s when Indonesian cosmetics were not yet well received by the Indonesians. This condition bothered her and in 1987 she resolutely produced the very first Sariayu color trend named “Twilight at Sriwedari”. This initial collection received recognition and acknowledgement from various beauty observers and experts as the pioneer in Indonesian color trend that has to date been consistently created annually based on the Indonesian culture and nature. The history of the journey and the inspirations behind the birth of the color trend are told by Martha Tilaar in such a way that makes each page of the book captivating and full of meaning. The book is complemented by various styles and inspirations of Indonesian artists in facial makeup and hairstyle who provide the illustrations for the history of exotic Indonesian color trend."

Book Short Summary:

The aim of this open access book is to review and analyse the goods and services of bivalve shellfish. How they are defined, what determines the ecological functions that are the basis for the goods and services, what controversies in the use of goods and services exist, and what is needed for sustainable exploitation of bivalves from the perspective of the various stakeholders. The book is focused on the goods and services, and not on impacts of shellfish aquaculture on the benthic environment, or on threats like biotoxins; neither is it a shellfish culture handbook although it can be used in evaluating shellfish culture. The reviews and analysis are based on case studies that exemplify the concept, and show the strengths and weaknesses of the current applications. The multi-authored reviews cover ecological, economic and social aspects of bivalve goods and services. The book provides new insights for scientists, students, shellfish producers, policy advisors, nature conservationists and decision makers. This book is open access under the CC BY license.

The literary canon of World War 1 - celebrated for realising the experience of an entire generation - ignores writing by women. To the sorrows that war has always brought them - the loss of husbands, lovers, brothers - the Great War added a revolutionary knowledge.

This volume of mutually reflective essays brings this writing into literary focus and ensures that women's recent history and literature are neither forgotten nor undervalued.

Transformations of Domesticity in Modern Women's Writing makes new connections between feminist criticism of domestic ideology in the nineteenth century, modernist women's experiments with literary form, contemporary feminist debates about the politics of location, and postmodern theories of social space. The book identifies a coherent transition of women's writing that transforms domestic ideologies of 'woman's place' by redefining the ideas about space that underlie that ideology. The result is to open the space of gender identity to new relations of class and race.

Book Short Summary:

On the eve of their 16th birthday, the “impossible” twins—a black girl (Cynthia Summers) and a white boy (Kaden Krossway)—find themselves being called upon desperately for help by a mysterious, unknown source…which is somehow speaking to them through a tree that they have just learned doesn’t actually exist…not here, at least… Answering this call will change their lives forever, revealing that they are part of a much larger world, one of Lurkur Witches and evil shadowraiths; of new friends and devastating betrayals; of treetop villages and a skeletal forest within the forest; and of battles for survival and a realization that they are anything but ordinary. The story of Cynthia and Kaden begins here.
