☯ Full Synopsis : "Octavia E. Butler's 1979 masterpiece and ground-breaking exploration of power and responsibility, for fans of The Handmaid's Tale, The Power and Yaa Gyasi's Homegoing. With an original foreword by Ayòbámi Adébáyò. 'If you've ever tweeted "All Lives Matter" someone needs to shove this book into your hand, and quickly' The Pool Nineteenth-century Maryland is a very dangerous place for a black woman - but Dana has no choice but to go there, and keep going back. Rufus calls Dana to him whenever his life is threatened. Neither of them understands his power, nor how two such different people will come to depend on each other for survival. And the longer Dana spends with Rufus, the more aware she is that her own life might be over before it's even begun. This is the extraordinary story of two people bound by blood, separated by so much more than time - and confronting the inescapable ties between past and present."Article| Octavia E.

☯ Full Synopsis : "Fledgling, Octavia Butler’s last novel, is the story of an apparently young, amnesiac girl whose alarmingly un-human needs and abilities lead her to a startling conclusion: she is in fact a genetically modified, 53-year-old vampire. Forced to discover what she can about her stolen former life, she must at the same time learn who wanted—and still wants—to destroy her and those she cares for, and how she can save herself. Fledgling is a captivating novel that tests the limits of "otherness" and questions what it means to be truly human. From the Hardcover edition."Article| Octavia E. Butler| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Instant #1 New York Times Bestseller Octavia E. Butler's bestselling literary science-fiction masterpiece, Kindred, now in graphic novel format. More than 35 years after its release, Kindred continues to draw in new readers with its deep exploration of the violence and loss of humanity caused by slavery in the United States, and its complex and lasting impact on the present day. Adapted by celebrated academics and comics artists Damian Duffy and John Jennings, this graphic novel powerfully renders Butler's mysterious and moving story, which spans racial and gender divides in the antebellum South through the 20th century. Butler's most celebrated, critically acclaimed work tells the story of Dana, a young black woman who is suddenly and inexplicably transported from her home in 1970s California to the pre-Civil War South. As she time-travels between worlds, one in which she is a free woman and one where she is part of her own complicated familial history on a southern plantation, she becomes frighteningly entangled in the lives of Rufus, a conflicted white slaveholder and one of Dana's own ancestors, and the many people who are enslaved by him. Held up as an essential work in feminist, science-fiction, and fantasy genres, and a cornerstone of the Afrofuturism movement, there are over 500,000 copies of Kindred in print. The intersectionality of race, history, and the treatment of women addressed within the original work remain critical topics in contemporary dialogue, both in the classroom and in the public sphere. Frightening, compelling, and richly imagined, Kindred offers an unflinching look at our complicated social history, transformed by the graphic novel format into a visually stunning work for a new generation of readers."Article| Octavia E.

☯ Full Synopsis : "English summary: Autobiographical writing has been an inherent part of Western culture and literary traditions for more than 2000 years. Especially during the last years, a considerable amount of research has been conducted on the genre. This volume, however, focuses on three fields which have not yet been at the centre of literary studies: firstly, the classical tradition, secondly, autobiographies of the 18th and early 19th century, which were mostly written in Latin and refer back to their classical predecessors, and thirdly, those modern and postmodern (meta-) autobiographies which reflect on the genre and play with conceptions of historiography, fact and fiction. This collection of essays offers 21 readings of fairly unknown autobiographies and provides new perspectives on the genre and its functions. German description: Autobiographisches Schreiben und Autobiographien gehoren seit mehr als zwei Jahrtausenden zu den wesentlichen Charakteristika der abendlandischen Kultur und Literatur, obwohl der Begriff der Autobiographie sehr viel junger ist. Wie es ihrer Bedeutung entspricht, darf die Autobiographie als Gattung insgesamt als recht gut erforscht gelten, jedoch mit unverkennbaren Forschungslucken, von denen der vorliegende Band exemplarisch drei Schwerpunkte aufgreift: die klassischen Traditionen der Autobiographie, die zumeist lateinische Autobiographik der Renaissance und des 18. und fruhen 19. Jahrhunderts, die ihrerseits zum Teil Rezeption der klassischen Autobiographie-Traditionen ist, und die moderne und postmoderne, erkenntnistheoretische, epistemologische oder literatur- und geschichtstheoretische Fragen auslotende faktuale und fiktionale Autobiographie vornehmlich englischsprachiger Provenienz. Die 21 Beitrage des vorliegenden Bandes verstehen sich (innerhalb dieser Schwerpunkte) jeweils als exemplarische Einzelstudien, die sich auf nahezu unbekannte, oder wenig beachtete Autobiographien konzentrieren, diese vorstellen und in ihrer gattungsgeschichtlichen sowie ihrer funktionalen Bedeutung erschliessen."Article| Uwe Baumann| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "Octavia Butler (1947-2006) spent the majority of her prolific career as the only major black female author of science fiction. Winner of both the Nebula and Hugo Awards as well as a MacArthur "genius" grant, the first for a science fiction writer, Butler created worlds that challenged notions of race, sex, gender, and humanity. Whether in the postapocalyptic future of the Parable stories, in the human inability to assimilate change and difference in the Xenogenesis books, or in the destructive sense of superiority in the Patternist series, Butler held up a mirror, reflecting what is beautiful, corrupt, worthwhile, and damning about the world we inhabit. In interviews ranging from 1980 until just before her sudden death in 2006, Conversations with Octavia Butler reveals a writer very much aware of herself as the "rare bird" of science fiction even as she shows frustration with the constant question,"How does it feel to be the only one?" Whether discussing humanity's biological imperatives or the difference between science fiction and fantasy or the plight of the working poor in America, Butler emerges in these interviews as funny, intelligent, complicated, and intensely original."Article| Conseula Francis| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : "The Nebula Award–winning author of Kindred presents a “gripping” dystopian novel about a woman fleeing Los Angeles as America spirals into chaos (The New York Times Book Review). Lauren Olamina and her family live in one of the only safe neighborhoods remaining on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Behind the walls of their defended enclave, Lauren’s father, a preacher, and a handful of other citizens try to salvage what remains of a culture that has been destroyed by drugs, war, and chronic shortages of water, gasoline, and more. While her father tries to lead people on the righteous path, Lauren struggles with hyperempathy, a condition that makes her extraordinarily sensitive to the pain of others. When fire destroys their compound, Lauren’s family is killed and she is forced out into a world that is facing apocalypse. With a handful of other refugees, Lauren must make her way north to safety, along the way conceiving a revolutionary idea that may mean salvation for all mankind. From a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship who has won multiple Nebula and Hugo Awards, this iconic novel is “a gripping tale of survival and a poignant account of growing up sane in a disintegrating world” (The New York Times Book Review). This ebook features an illustrated biography of Octavia E. Butler including rare images from the author’s estate."Article| Octavia E. Butler| Statement ..."
