It’s 1944, and a little village in rural Quebec sits quietly beside an aging mountain and an angry river. The air tastes of kelp, and the wind keeps knocking over the cross. Beside that river an eleven-year-old girl lives with her parents. Her mother is very sad, and her father has vanished because he can’t bear to look at his own daughter. You see, this little girl has suddenly sprouted a full beard. And so her mother has shut the curtains and locked the girl inside to keep her safe from the townspeople, the Boots, who think there’s something wrong with a bearded little girl. And when they come for her, she escapes into the wintry night...

The World and the Word

Tales and Observations from the Xhosa Oral Tradition

A master storyteller of the Xhosa people of South Africa, Nongenile Masithathu Zenani gives us an unprecedented view of an oral society from within. Twenty-four of her complex and beautiful tales about birth, puberty, marriage, and work, as told to the renowned collector of African oral tradition, Harold Scheub, are gathered here. Accompanying the stories are Zenani’s detailed commentaries and analyses and Scheub’s striking photographs of her in performance. The combination of these historical and cultural observations with a richly symbolic collection of tales from a single traditional storyteller make The World and the Word a remarkable document. “The storyteller’s materials are simple,” Zenani told Scheub, “the world, and the word.” She presents to us the entire world of the Xhosa people, how they first came to be, the origins of their customs, how they order their world and deal with transgressors, how they manage all of life’s transitions from birth to death. She depicts both the world as it exists and as it is shaped in the words of the storyteller. Inheriting tales from the Xhosa tradition, Zenani has transformed them into imaginative new stories marked by her own artistry. Scheub’s introduction to The World and the Word discusses Xhosa oral tradition and Zenani’s particular characteristics as an artist within that tradition; Zenani’s personal history and her work as both a storyteller and a healer; and Scheub’s friendship with her and his role in recording her legacy.

While this book is a collection of all the unfulfilled prophecies that I could find in the Bible, I do not have all the answers to prophecy in THIS LAST Revival before the Great Tribulation of Jesus. The New Testament passages are directly from the Greek as they, most of the time, appear in THE TRANSLATORS NEW TESTAMENT, my translation printed by Xulon Press. When Jesus gives us His own words we begin to see a general truth concerning these last days. I had and still have no presuppositions to prophecy. The millennium, that Jesus will rule for a thousand years before the Great Tribulation, is clearly taught in the Bible. There are many different millenialists, from those who are always preaching that Jesus will return to this world visibly to rule it for a thousand years, to “premillenialists,” “postmillenialists,” etc. This book contains much of God’s Word about the kingdom of the devils and how they also operate especially during This Last Revival, this millennium in which we are now in, in which the unreached dialects are being, or about to be given the Word of God. This book also shows us how God wants us to take part in This Last Revival.

A New Zealand Book of Beasts

Animals in Our Culture, History and Everyday Life


Author: Annie Potts

Publisher: Auckland University Press

ISBN: 1869407733

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 320

View: 7833

A New Zealand Book of Beasts is a groundbreaking examination of the interactions between humans and 'nonhuman animals' - both real and imagined - in New Zealand's arts and literature, popular culture, historiography, media and everyday life. Structured in four parts - Animal Icons, Animal Companions, Art Animals and Controversial Animals - the Book of Beasts touches on topi as diverse as moa-hunting and the SPCA, pest-control and pet-keeping, whaling and whale-watching; on species ranging from sheep to sperm whales and from pekapeka to possums; and on the works of authors and artists as various as Samuel Butler and Witi Ihimaera, Lady Mary Anne Barker and Janet Frame, Michael Parekowhai and Don Binney, Bill Hammond and Fiona Pardington. In examining through literature, art and culture the ways New Zealanders use and abuse, shape and are shaped by, glorify and co-opt, and describe and imagine animals, the authors tell us a great deal about our society and culture: how we understand our own identities and those of others; how we regard, inhabit and make use of the natural world; and how we think about what to buy, eat, wear, watch and read. This is an engaging, original and scholarly rigorous book of cultural criticism and a thoughtful addition to New Zealand literature.
