'I work to earth my heart.' Time Lived, Without Its Flow is an astonishing, unflinching essay on the nature of grief from critically acclaimed poet Denise Riley. From the horrific experience of maternal grief Riley wrote her lauded collection Say Something Back, a modern classic of British poetry. This essay is a companion piece to that work, looking at the way time stops when we lose someone suddenly from our lives. The first half is formed of diary-like entries written by Riley after the news of her son’s death, the entries building to paint a live portrait of loss. The second half is a ruminative post script written some years later with Riley looking back at the experience philosophically and attempting to map through it a literature of consolation. Written in precise and exacting prose, with remarkable insight and grace this book will form kind counsel to all those living on in the wake of grief. A modern-day counterpart to C. S. Lewis’s A Grief Observed. Published widely for the first time, this revised edition features a special introduction by Max Porter, author of Grief is A Thing With Feathers. 'Her writing is perfectly weighted, justifies its existence' - Guardian

A moving meditation on grief and motherhood by one of Britain's most celebrated poets. Say Something Back will allow readers to see just why Denise Riley has been held in such high regard by her fellow poets for so long. The book reproduces A Part Song, a profoundly moving document of grieving and loss, and one of the most widely admired long poems of recent years. Elsewhere these poems become a space for contemplation of the natural world and of physical law, and for considering what it is to invoke those who are absent. But finally, they extend our sense of what the act of human speech can mean—and especially what is drawn forth from us when we address our dead. Lyric, intimate, acidly witty, unflinchingly brave, Say Something Back—which also includes a powerful new prose meditation about grief and its aftermath, “Time Lived, Without Its Flow”—is a deeply moving book by one of our finest poets, and one destined to introduce Riley’s name to a wide new readership.

The ways in which we imagine and experience time are changing dramatically. Climate change, unending violent conflict, fraying material infrastructures, permanent debt and widening social inequalities mean that we no longer live with an expectation of a progressive future, a generative past, or a flourishing now that characterized the temporal imaginaries of the post-war period. Time, it appears, is not flowing, but has become stuck, intensely felt, yet radically suspended. How do we now 'take care' of time? How can we understand change as requiring time not passing? And what can quotidian experiences of suspended time - waiting, delaying, staying, remaining, enduring, returning and repeating - tell us about the survival of social bonds? Enduring Time responds to the question of the relationship between time and care through a paradoxical engagement with time's suspension. Working with an eclectic archive of cultural, political and artistic objects, it aims to reestablish the idea that time might be something we both have and share, as opposed to something we are always running out of. A strikingly original philosophy of time, this book also provides a detailed survey of contemporary theories of the topic; it is an indispensable read for those attempting to live meaningfully in the current age.

*SHORTLISTED FOR THE KIRKUS REVIEW AWARDS FOR NON-FICTION & LONGLISTED FOR THE NATIONAL BOOK AWARDS FOR TRANSLATED LITERATURE* 'Extraordinary. It is about death, but I can think of few books which have such life. It shows us what love is' Max Porter, author of Grief is the Thing With Feathers and Lanny 'There is no one quite like Naja Marie Aidt' Valeria Luiselli 'Devastating, angry, challenging, fragmented and filled with the beautiful hope that the love we have for people continues into the world even after they're gone' CultureFly 'A book about death that pulses with life' The Lady 'Fragmented, poetic, informative and truthful, Aidt faces the greatest loss we can ever know with all the force of great elegy writers like Anne Carson and Denise Riley. Essential' Polly Clark, author of Larchfield and Tiger _______ "I raise my glass to my eldest son. His pregnant wife and daughter are sleeping above us. Outside, the March evening is cold and clear. 'To life!' I say as the glasses clink with a delicate and pleasing sound. My mother says something to the dog. Then the phone rings. We don't answer it. Who could be calling so late on a Saturday evening?" In March 2015, Naja Marie Aidt's 25-year-old son, Carl, died in a tragic accident. When Death Takes Something From You Give It Back is about losing a child. It is about formulating a vocabulary to express the deepest kind of pain. And it's about finding a way to write about a reality invaded by grief, lessened by loss. Faced with the sudden emptiness of language, Naja finds solace in the anguish of Joan Didion, Nick Cave, C.S. Lewis, Mallarmé, Plato and other writers who have suffered the deadening impact of loss. Their torment suffuses with her own as Naja wrestles with words and contests their capacity to speak for the depths of her sorrow. This palimpsest of mourning enables Naja to turn over the pathetic, precious transience of existence and articulates her greatest fear: to forget. The insistent compulsion to reconstruct the harrowing aftermath of Carl's death keeps him painfully present, while fragmented memories, journal entries and poetry inch her closer to piecing Carl's life together. Intensely moving and quietly devastating, this is what is it to be a family, what it is to love and lose, and what it is to treasure life in spite of death's indomitable resolve.

From being so inept at public speaking that his supervisor wouldn’t let him make presentations to clients—even when he had done all the work—Vikas Jhingran went on to become a championship-winning public speaker who leaves a lasting impact on his audience. Few speakers and presenters understand speeches or presentations at a fundamental level. Most books have an overly prescriptive approach, using the tricks and tools of speech delivery that end up confusing the speech, instead of connecting with the essential part of speaking—that which engages listeners. In Emote, Vikas Jhingran lays bare his unique approach—connecting with his audience on an emotional level, rather than subscribing to a “right” way of speaking—which applies equally to one-on-one conversations, small team settings, and large audiences. His method will show you how to express your ideas clearly, quell your fear of public speaking, calm the sweating, stuttering and jitters that plague people before crucial presentations, and, overall, help you become an effective communicator.

Existentialism was one of the leading philosophical movements of the twentieth century. Focusing on its seven leading figures, Sartre, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Kierkegaard, de Beauvoir, Merleau-Ponty and Camus, this Very Short Introduction provides a clear account of the key themes of the movement which emphasized individuality, free will, and personal responsibility in the modern world. Drawing in the movement's varied relationships with the arts, humanism, and politics, this book clarifies the philosophy and original meaning of 'existentialism' - which has tended to be obscured by misappropriation. Placing it in its historical context, Thomas Flynn also highlights how existentialism is still relevant to us today. ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

The Flame of Eternity

The Flame of Eternity provides a reexamination and new interpretation of Nietzsche's philosophy and the central role that the concepts of eternity and time, as he understood them, played in it. According to Krzysztof Michalski, Nietzsche's reflections on human life are inextricably linked to time, which in turn cannot be conceived of without eternity. Eternity is a measure of time, but also, Michalski argues, something Nietzsche viewed first and foremost as a physiological concept having to do with the body. The body ages and decays, involving us in a confrontation with our eventual death. It is in relation to this brute fact that we come to understand eternity and the finitude of time. Nietzsche argues that humanity has long regarded the impermanence of our life as an illness in need of curing. It is this "pathology" that Nietzsche called nihilism. Arguing that this insight lies at the core of Nietzsche's philosophy as a whole, Michalski seeks to explain and reinterpret Nietzsche's thought in light of it. Michalski maintains that many of Nietzsche's main ideas--including his views on love, morality (beyond good and evil), the will to power, overcoming, the suprahuman (or the overman, as it is infamously referred to), the Death of God, and the myth of the eternal return--take on new meaning and significance when viewed through the prism of eternity.

Einstein Money and Contentment

Click this link to read a review of Einstein, Money and Contentment. Bridging the academic and practical, Palmquist has taken what the open minded reader will view as a first step toward defining a generic “Grand Unification Theory.” Objecting to the use of the word, “Theory,” Palmquist refers to “Cosmolaw,” because he bases his work upon proven formulas controlling the behavior of electricity. His proposed answer to the long-sought-after “GUT” should interest physicists. His inter-disciplinary application of those principles to the field of everyday life should interest economists. The attention he centers upon the commonalities between the laws of nature and the nature of God should get the attention of theologians. Even skeptical scientists must fill out 1040 forms. If they take issue with Palmquist''s views of Physics and cosmology they can nevertheless grasp his reasoning that no government under today''''''''s monetary policies can be rational if it also insists upon collecting income taxes from its citizens. The formulas discussed by Palmquist are shown to be common to all of nature and can be applied to all of life. His study embraces the fields of Economics and spiritual life. Blending observations from natural law with his observations about Economics and ordinary life, Palmquist makes the case that economists should try to provide a better society for us, while we as individuals, using Cosmolaw, find contentment in whatever state life finds us.
