Shakespeare Monologues by William Shakespeare
16 h ago
This is truly a delightful compilation of some of the best known and loved passages from William Shakespeare's plays. Most readers would be familiar with all or at least some of them. If you've studied Shakespeare in school or college, plays like The Merchant of Venice and Macbeth were probably assigned texts. However, if you haven't encountered these plays before, Shakespeare Monologues is a great volume to browse through and enjoy at leisure. It's important to know that there is a distinction between the terms “monologue” and “soliloquy.” Since Shakespeare's plays often contain both these, the reader should be informed that a monologue is a speech delivered by one person and usually made to an audience, while a soliloquy is more of a kind of self-talk and a sort of thinking aloud, delivered by a character to none but himself/herself, presuming that he/she is alone. For instance, Mark Antony's “Friends, Romans, countrymen...” speech from Julius Caesar is a monologue, while Hamlet's “To be or not to be...” is a soliloquy. This volume contains fifteen monologues from various plays. Ranging from Portia's memorable speech, “The quality of mercy is not strained...” from The Merchant of Venice, to Juliet's impassioned cry, “Wherefore art thou, Romeo?” from Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth's tormented “Is this a dagger I see before me?” which he speaks just before he commits the heinous crime of Duncan's murder. Other remarkable monologues include Kate's impassioned speech from Taming of the Shrew, “No shame but mine....” in which she's stood-up at the altar by Petruchio and blames herself for agreeing to marry a “mad-brain rudesby!” If you've read Othello, you'll probably remember Emilia, Iago's soft-spoken but perceptive wife. Her monologue, “But I do think it is their husband's fault if wives do fall....” squarely refuses to condemn a woman for having an affair outside marriage – a remarkable comment for those times. Another lovely monologue is the wonderfully evocative “If we shadows have offended...” from A Midsummer Night's Dream in which Shakespeare speaks in the voice of his fellow actors and talks about dreams and reality, the stage and real life. Lesser-known monologues are Viola's speech from Twelfth Night, “I left no ring with her...” in which she realizes that Olivia has fallen in love with her, Viola, who is disguised as a man called Cesario! Measure for Measure's “Tis one thing to be tempted...” and Richard II's “Of comfort let no man speak...” are other immortal passages. Shakespeare's Monologues is indeed a golden treasure not to be missed by any Shakespeare follower.
Love Letter Collection by Various
16 h ago
By conservative estimates, more than 6.8 million out of earth's population of 7 billion have access to cell phones. This has happened in just over 20 years. It's safe to assume that almost all these people would prefer to communicate via their phones rather than by snail-mail, post or courier. Which leads us to the question: “Does this mean the death of the love letter?” For those of us who still remember the joys of receiving and sending romantic epistles, couched in purple prose, expressing our deepest feelings, these little messages were the most delightful way of keeping in touch with those we loved. The Love Letter Collection 2008 by Various takes us back to a more gentle and genteel time, when we used our imagination and creativity to convey our thoughts and weren't compelled to use ugly abbreviations or acronyms, neither were we restricted to 140 characters! Receiving a handwritten letter which could be read and re-read at leisure was an experience that can never be matched by a mere e-mail or a text message! In this collection we find Abigail Adams, the wife of the second president and the mother of the sixth president of the United States of America, writing to her husband John Adams while he was in Philadelphia during the Continental Congresses in 1774. She wrote nearly 1200 letters to him, which are remarkable for their frankness, intimacy and literary skill though she was a self-educated woman. From Don Felipe to Louise is a letter taken from Honore de Balzac's epistolatory novel Letters of Two Brides. Published in 1842, this book tells the story of two young women who meet in a convent and later go on to pursue different paths in life. One of them, Louise, falls in love with a Spanish aristocrat and this is one of the ardent letters he writes to her, expressing his passion. Eliza Cook's poem Don't Tell the World you're waiting for Me is a lover's gentle protest against his beloved's reluctance to make a commitment. The letter of Heloise to Abelard recalls one of the most famous, passionate and tragic love stories in the world. The tale is nearly a thousand years old, but still shines like a beacon for lovers everywhere. The poignant chronicle of the 12th century philosopher Abelard and his young and beautiful student Heloise which scandalized society at that time is brought to life in this charming letter. Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Beethoven are other romantic letter writers featured in this collection along with lesser known scribes. This compilation has letters written by the famous and not so famous and all of them are deeply moving, poignant reminders that emotions remain the same throughout the centuries. A charming collection for those who celebrate the sweet emotions of the heart!
California Tiki Podcast
2019 SEP 24
Authors Adam Foshko (Skylanders, Call of Duty, Destiny) and Jason Henderson (Alex Van Helsing, Young Captain Nemo, Destiny 2) explore the midcentury fascination with Tiki-- the idols, rum drinks, beach parties, and faux Polynesian paradises. Look for their book California Tiki from the History Press. After World War II, suburbs proliferated around California cities as returning soldiers traded in their uniforms for business suits. After-hours leisure activities took on an island-themed sensuality that bloomed from a new fascination with Polynesia and Hawaii. Movies and television shows filmed in Malibu and Burbank urged viewers to escape everyday life with the likes of Gidget and Hawaiian Eye. Restaurants like Don the Beachcomber and Trader Vic's sprang up to answer the demand for wild cocktails and even wilder décor. The culture--a strange hodgepodge of idols, torches, lush greenery and colorful drinks--beckoned men and women to lose themselves in exotic music and surf tunes. Authors Jason Henderson and Adam Foshko explore the state's midcentury fascination with all things Tiki.

Hurlbut's Story of the Bible Part 3 by HURLBUT, Jesse Lyman
2019 SEP 24
Some years ago, the editor of an English magazine sent a communication to "the hundred greatest men in Great Britain" asking them this question: "If for any reason you were to spend a year absolutely alone, in a prison for instance, and could select from your library three volumes to be taken with you as companions in your period of retirement please to inform us what those three books would be." The inquiry was sent to peers of the realm, prominent leaders in politics, judges, authors, manufacturers, merchants, gentlemen of leisure—men who would represent every aspect of successful life. In the answers it was found that ninety-eight of the hundred men named "The Bible" first on the list of the three books to be chosen. (From Book introduction)

‘Boxing: A Cultural History’ is a new investigation of the shifting social, political and cultural resonances of the visceral sport by UCL English lecturer Kasia Boddy.

Here she describes the social and historical significance of a selection of the images from her book, published by Reaktion Books.
The Beautiful and Damned by F. Scott Fitzgerald
17 h ago
An idle, extravagant young man is the heir presumptive of his wealthy grandfather, an industrial tycoon. His wife, divinely beautiful and utterly selfish, believes that nothing is more powerful than her own beauty. Together, this couple represents what Fitzgerald famously portrayed as the lost generation of the Jazz Age in several of his novels. In The Beautiful and The Damned, F Scott Fitzgerald explores the trivial and shallow lives of the well-heeled inheritors of the American Dream the second or third generation that can afford to live on the fortunes that their forbears worked so hard to accumulate. The book traces the life of Anthony Patch between the ages of 25 and 33 and focuses intensely on his almost obsessive love for the gorgeous looking Gloria Gilbert. Their meeting, courtship, marriage, the endless social whirl of parties, the sudden financial troubles that hit them, the long awaited inheritance that comes to their rescue and the totally unexpected final conclusion make the book a bittersweet saga. Fitzgerald's own life and his marriage to the beautiful Zelda are supposedly the inspiration for this 1925 book, which was his second novel. It follows one of Fitzgerald's favorite themes that great wealth destroys greatly. However, here the irony in the whole situation is that Patch is not wealthy at all; he only nurses “great expectations!” He refuses to work believing that one day he would be a gentleman of leisure. However, his grandfather, an old-school reformist thinker, believes in the credo of hard work and plain living. When the old man turns up unexpectedly at one of the couple's flashy parties, he rewrites his will, leaving Patch devastated and with no recourse other than to explore legal options. Fitzgerald was famous for his uncanny ability to select the perfect title for his books. The Beautiful and The Damned is no exception. It describes a group of people whose looks are indeed their damnation. Their outward appearance hides their avarice, lust, self indulgence and utter degeneration of moral values. Though these characters are totally unworthy of our sympathy, they manage to capture the imagination simply because of the author's vivid portrayal. Fitzgerald's eye for detail, his brilliant and luminous prose, the authentic recreation of the garish and gaudy side of America in the 1920s are all wonderfully showcased in the book. His first novel, This Side of Paradise had just been published and received with almost universal admiration. Though The Beautiful and The Damned is considered by critics to be less brilliant, it is nevertheless a dazzling picture of a vanished era.
