Author: Eliza Haywood,Henry Fielding
Publisher: Broadview Press
View: 2018Published together for the first time, Eliza Haywood’s Anti-Pamela and Henry Fielding’s An Apology for the Life of Mrs. Shamela Andrews are the two most important responses to Samuel Richardson’s novel Pamela. Anti-Pamela comments on Richardson’s representations of work, virtue, and gender, while also questioning the generic expectations of the novel that Pamela establishes, and it provides a vivid portrayal of the material realities of life for a woman in eighteenth-century London. Fielding’s Shamela punctures both the figure Richardson established for himself as an author and Pamela’s preoccupation with virtue. This Broadview edition also includes a rich selection of historical materials, including writings from the period on sexuality, women’s work, Pamela and the print trade, and education and conduct.
America's Eyewitness to World War II
Author: James Tobin
Publisher: Simon and Schuster
Category: Biography & Autobiography
View: 5286When a machine-gun bullet ended the life of war correspondent Ernie Pyle in the final days of World War II, Americans mourned him in the same breath as they mourned Franklin Roosevelt. To millions, the loss of this American folk hero seemed nearly as great as the loss of the wartime president. If the hidden horrors and valor of combat persist at all in the public mind, it is because of those writers who watched it and recorded it in the faith that war is too important to be confined to the private memories of the warriors. Above all these writers, Ernie Pyle towered as a giant. Through his words and his compassion, Americans everywhere gleaned their understanding of what they came to call “The Good War.” Pyle walked a troubled path to fame. Though insecure and anxious, he created a carefree and kindly public image in his popular prewar column—all the while struggling with inner demons and a tortured marriage. War, in fact, offered Pyle an escape hatch from his own personal hell. It also offered him a subject precisely suited to his talent—a shrewd understanding of human nature, an unmatched eye for detail, a profound capacity to identify with the suffering soldiers whom he adopted as his own, and a plain yet poetic style reminiscent of Mark Twain and Will Rogers. These he brought to bear on the Battle of Britain and all the great American campaigns of the war—North Africa, Sicily, Italy, D-Day and Normandy, the liberation of Paris, and finally Okinawa, where he felt compelled to go because of his enormous public stature despite premonitions of death. In this immensely engrossing biography, affectionate yet critical, journalist and historian James Tobin does an Ernie Pyle job on Ernie Pyle, evoking perfectly the life and labors of this strange, frail, bald little man whose love/hate relationship to war mirrors our own. Based on dozens of interviews and copious research in little-known archives, Ernie Pyle's War is a self-effacing tour de force. To read it is to know Ernie Pyle, and most of all, to know his war.

A Story of Redemption
Author: Barbara Kelly
Publisher: WestBow Press
View: 7653We all go through different trials in our lives, but there can be victory, healing, and redemption of our past. We can move forward and be healthy, happy people, fulfilling our desires and destiny. My prayer is that the words in this book will come alive and you will see just how precious you are to our God and how you too can overcome anything that has hurt you. There is a story in Ezekiel 37 about the valley of dry bones coming to life, and new muscles, tissue, and skin growing; the people were alive again. Do you feel that sometimes you are just spiritually dead and need new life? Sometimes we just need to gain wisdom through someone else's experiences, to see what we have been missing in our own lives. I hope through my experiences you will gain knowledge that will give you revelation into becoming the person you desire to be.
Author: Judith A. Lewis
View: 379A BOLD WALKABOUT ACROSS THE LAND OF VISION, IMAGINATION, AND REALITY "The stories in this book are a combination of my imagination, vision, and experiences and contacts," writes storyteller Judith A. Lewis about this compelling collection of 65 stories about the Australian Outback, the Pacific, India, and traveling. "They came to me in vivid detail and I felt compelled to share these insights into a richer way of looking at our relationship to the Earth." Her theme is the journey, across landscapes, through cultures, or into the vivid realms of visionary experience. Lewis writes evocatively about traveling, in spirit and body, across Aboriginal and cultural terrains, from meeting kangaroo spirits to long-lost fathers. But she writes with equal insight and warmth about the enigmas of the heart, its secrets, joys, aspirations, and epiphanies. A twelve-year-old girl survives an illness by communing with the waratah in bloom. A traveler in Bombay is arrested by beauty amidst the frenetic urban haze. Two twins separated in early childhood journey towards each other. A homeless man constantly walks the highways to bury his past. An Aboriginal medicine man named Waramingo meets the Dreamtime ancestors. "A lot of the visionary stories pertain to the land and its secrets and those who visit it from afar," Lewis says. "I believe that the Earth is alive and awaiting our recognition as are the other dimensions that we all could inhabit. I hope my stories help you remember what you already know, that there is no separation, that everything, from stones to stars, is part of us on this lovely planet."

View: 888'Beautifully written and produced' 'Packed full of thought-provoking truths' 'A good devotional read or for anyone with a busy schedule' Part-serialised in Quiet Spaces, the prayer and spirituality journal from BRF. Jesus said, 'I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children ... 'These are radical words; potentially life-changing words. Yet how many of us truly believe that we need to become like little children? What might be the implications for our life and faith? As a Child is an exploration of this call to childlikeness, this call to littleness - a call made not to children, but to adults - not to those who are naturally childlike, but to those who have grown out of their childlike nature. It is a book for all who desire to grow in their faith, to enter into all that God has for us, to live the life God wants us to live and to be the people God wants us to be. For all are willing to respond to Jesus' call, and become like a little child.

A Galaxy of B-Movie Starlets of the Sixties
Author: Tom Lisanti
Category: Performing Arts
View: 7939During the 1960s, a bushel of B–movies were produced and aimed at the predominantly teenage drive-in movie audience. At first teens couldn’t get enough of the bikini-clad beauties dancing on the beach or being wooed by Elvis Presley, but by 1966 young audiences became more interested in the mini-skirted, go-go boot wearing, independent-minded gals of spy spoofs, hot rod movies and biker flicks. Profiled herein are fifty sexy, young actresses that teenage girls envied and teenage boys desired including Quinn O’Hara, Melody Patterson, Hilarie Thompson, Donna Loren, Pat Priest, Meredith MacRae, Arlene Martel, Cynthia Pepper, and Beverly Washburn. Some like Sue Ane Langdon, Juliet Prowse, Marlyn Mason, and Carole Wells, appeared in major studio productions while others, such as Regina Carrol, Susan Hart, Angelique Pettyjohn and Suzie Kaye were relegated to drive-in movies only. Each biography contains a complete filmography. Some also include the actresses’ candid comments and anecdotes about their films, the people they worked with, and their feelings about acting. A list of web sites that provide further information is also included.

Short Stories in Nigerian Pidgin English
Author: Oluwagbemiga Ogboro-Cole
View: 7366Mami Wata - Short Stories in Nigerian Pidgin English seeks to facilitate the use of Pidgin English as a National Language in Nigeria, and to create dialogue among young people in Nigeria. Also, the purpose of producing the work is to provide these young people an opportunity to read and write in a language my generation was deprived of using. Similarly, the subject and the language choice of this book give emphasis on the use of Pidgin English as a language rather than being perceived in the manner linguistic researchers once did. Those researchers relegated it, with respect to other languages, to a lower rung. Today, in Nigeria, statistics show that four out of every five people can speak and understand Pidgin English. Every two people can read Pidgin English texts. In addition, the Nigerian entertainment industry has 'pidginized' its productions in order to reach as many people as possible, in spite of the languages such people may speak. This aspect has caught on in the Nigerian Hip Hop scene, the home video industry, the news media etc. Mami Wata - Short Stories in Nigerian Pidgin English is the very first book on Yoruba folktales written in Nigerian Pidgin English. It is hoped that this book will help to correct wrong and past notions that the Nigerian Pidgin English is part of a passive resistance scheme adopted by educated elites and missionaries in Nigeria for their various interests; in other words an "outcast language."
