♥ Book Title : Laughable Loves
☯ Full Synopsis : "Milan Kundera is a master of graceful illusion and illuminating surprise. In one of these stories a young man and his girlfriend pretend that she is a stranger he picked up on the road--only to become strangers to each other in reality as their game proceeds. In another a teacher fakes piety in order to seduce a devout girl, then jilts her and yearns for God. In yet another girls wait in bars, on beaches, and on station platforms for the same lover, a middle-aged Don Juan who has gone home to his wife. Games, fantasies, and schemes abound in all the stories while different characters react in varying ways to the sudden release of erotic impulses."Article| Milan Kundera| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Kundera, Or, The Memory of Desire
☯ Full Synopsis : "This is more than a literary critique — it is a work of perception, of analysis that reveals a portrait of Kundera the novelist as one of the greatest demystifiers of our time. This significant work deals with all of Milan Kundera’s novels up to his most recent work, Slowness, which marks the beginning of a new phase of his writing. It is the first work that studies Kundera as a novelist, rather than a philosopher or intellectual guide, and the only one that diverges from the beaten path in examining and in reflecting on the composition and style of these novels, to discern the underlying humanity and originality of the work as a whole and to finally establish the connections and correlation within and between the novels — connections that conventional criticism can never reveal."Article| Eva Le Grand| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Literature in Exile of East and Central Europe
☯ Full Synopsis : "Literature in Exile of East and Central Europe is a collection of articles discussing authors whose homelands range from the former Soviet Union to the former Yugoslavia. For the purposes of this book, East and Central Europe comprise Russia, Poland, Germany, Czech Republic, Romania, and former Yugoslavia. These writers were exiled as a result of unbearable political climates – be it nations of the Communist block, including former Yugoslavia torn by its civil wars, or in the case of Poland, its partitioning by neighboring powers in the nineteenth century. No other book has collected such a variety of discussions from this geopolitical region, featuring authors who chose exile over the extinguishment of their individuality. Organized by theme and geography, this book will be of interest to a wide group of readers: from the topic of exile to research in Slavic (Czech, Polish, Russian, and post-Yugoslav), Romanian, German, and comparative literature. Literature in Exile of East and Central Europe is a valuable supplement to courses in Eastern and Central European history, as well as a primary text for courses in East and Central European literature."Article| Agnieszka Gutthy| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Roads Taken
☯ Full Synopsis : "Public liberal arts colleges are higher education’s gems, yet their intimate campus settings and locations outside of the intellectual-cultural capitals challenge the traditional rhythm of academic careers. Professors trained at elite research institutions, usually located in large urban centers, must adapt to the holistic undergraduate education emphasized at colleges often located in smaller communities. The authors in this collection serve as pathfinders and exemplars for academic careers that integrate teaching, scholarship, and citizenship, rooted in place. Their stories demonstrate that the noblest traditions of higher education might be lived out most meaningfully on small, liberal arts campuses."Article| Roger Epp| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Currents Beneath the Sea
☯ Full Synopsis : "This tale is about three men, whose lives have paralleled and intertined over the decades from childhood to manhood to past middle age. They had been fighters. All of them had had a penchant for violence and had chased the glory and high voltage of the boxing ring. They had challenged themselves to their very limits and perhaps beyond. It is the chronicle of three boys growing uprough and lustful, accumulating the physical and psychic scars of their rather reckless actions both in and out of the ring. The powerful, main women in the book are the romantic essence of the narrative. Without their erotic entanglements, the entire tale would have missed an important dimension of fun and sensuality. Each of the main charaters ultimately searchs out the sea in an attempt to escape the disappointments of ordinary life, by challenging their souls over the existential battlefields of their own choosing."Article| Frank Nacozy| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Multicultural Writers Since 1945
☯ Full Synopsis : "The end of World War II led to increased interest in multicultural concerns and a flourishing of literary and artistic endeavors. It was also a time of decolonization and the emergence of new nations and cultures clamoring for recognition and respect. The political circumstances following World War II exposed many people to other cultures. This reference discusses the experiences of writers active since 1945 who were shaped by cultures other than their own. Included are alphabetically arranged entries for more than 100 writers, including Chinua Achebe, W.H. Auden, Mircea Eliade, Jamaica Kincaid, Salman Rushdie, and Elie Wiesel. The profiled authors either lived in another culture voluntarily or were wrenched from one culture into another. Each entry includes a brief biography, a discussion of multicultural themes in the writer's works, a review of criticism, and primary and secondary bibliographies. The volume closes with a selected, general bibliography. The reference demonstrates the value of multicultural experiences in the lives of writers around the world and fosters a greater appreciation of cultural diversity."Article| Alba della Fazia Amoia| Statement ..."
