Reading is a dance on the beaches of the mind, writes Greg Dening. His reading-dances are about the pain of cross-cultural encounters, of loomings beyond the horizons of discipline, gender and race, of the pleasures of a hundred texts. In Readings/Writings his aim is to cultivate our imaginations so that we might see further, understand more deeply and hear more acutely. This book opens with Dening's extraordinary piece, 'Memorial', a deeply moving reading of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC. Dening's profound yet lucid reflections on the meanings contained in this stark, simple memorial set the tone for the book.

This reader explores the relationship inherent between writer and reader by emphasizing the connection between good reading and writing skills. Student papers shown in draft stages can serve as guides for the writing process. Part I introduces a variety of critical reading strategies and the writing process to show how good reading skills are linked to developing strong writing skills. Based on the idea that writing is genuine communication, the book presents four major types of writing that represent a progression from private to public discourse: Expressive Discourse is illustrated by Anecdote, Autobiographical Narrative, and Reflection; Affirming Discourse is illustrated by Opinion Essay, Position Paper, and Editorial; Persuasive Discourse is illustrated by Evaluation, Argument, and Proposal; and Informative Discourse is illustrated by Observation, Explanation, and Critical Analysis.

Biblical Readings and Literary Writings in Early Modern England 1558 1625

This book considers the relationship between biblical readings and literary writings in early modern England. The Bible had a profound influence on sixteenth- and seventeenth-century culture, and bible-reading shaped the period's drama, poetry, and life-writings, as well as sermons and biblical commentaries. This volume explores the impact of how the Bible was read across a variety of writers and genres. In early modern England the Bible was the lens throughwhich individual and national circumstances were understood. This book illuminates how biblical narratives such as Solomon, Job, and Christ's mother, Mary, and the books of Song of Songs and Revelation,were enmeshed with contemporary concerns. In doing so, it argues that the reading practices popularly used by Protestants shape and problematize literary constructions of a diverse range of theological, political, and social debates.

Nine Talmudic Readings

Nine rich and masterful readings of the Talmud by the French Jewish philosopher Emmanuel Levinas translate Jewish thought into the language of modern times. Between 1963 and 1975, Levinas delivered these commentaries at the annual Talmudic colloquia of a group of French Jewish intellectuals in Paris. In this collection, Levinas applies a hermeneutic that simultaneously allows the classic Jewish texts to shed light on contemporary problems and lets modern problems illuminate the texts. Besides being quintessential illustrations of the art of reading, the essays express the deeply ethical vision of the human condition that makes Levinas one of the most important thinkers of our time.

This text, edited with notes by Sir Geoffrey Keynes, was first published in 1957 to mark the bicentenary of Blake's birth. It is now reprinted in an improved form with corrections, and with additions derived from further readings of deleted words and passages introduced without change of line or page numbering. This text contains almost all Blake's substantive variants. A small amount of new material is added in a supplement, including some notes in Blake's hand (c. 1819) recently found in a sketchbook used by John Varley. -- From publisher's description.
