♥ Book Title : The Current of Romantic Passion
☯ Full Synopsis : "Deftly probing the ambivalence of Romantic writers on the subjects of “passion” and “beauty,” Robinson shows how this ambivalence is also central to the experience of the modern critic in Western society. Is the reader's experience of beauty in art an escape from troubling reality? Or does desire for beauty spur social criticism and reform? Does the representation of erotic passion, as a sign of social critique, exist to be transcended for disinterested spirituality? Or is such passion the very site of the struggle for individual and class rights? Robinson explores the problematic place of passion and beauty in Romanticism’s radical sentiments and reformist politics. Tracing the intertwining of desire and disturbance, of eros and subversion, his meditations encompass poems, novels, diaries; key terms (such as Rousseau’s “sentiment of existence”); writers’ characteristic forms of expression or habits of mind (Wordsworth’s “or”-grammar); figures in literary works (Goethe’s Werther, Byron’s Lambro); problems of genre (the relationship of the Romantic poem and the Romantic essay, the problem of closure, the nature of a “scene”); and larger political questions (feminism in Romantic literature, erotic passion and representations of radicalism). Evoking the original meaning of “essay” as experiment, Robinson has essayed a topography of the Romantic landscape. "This book is daring and it is brilliant. I also think it is right."—James R. Kincaid, University of Southern California"Article| Jeffrey Cane Robinson| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Romantic Presences
☯ Full Synopsis : "Casting brilliant new light on some of the most beloved poetry in the Western tradition, Romantic Presences is a set of meditations in prose and poetry on a wide range of images from early 19th-century English writing. Some of the images are familiar Romantic symbols - the skylark, the nightingale, the sigh. Others are literary personages of the Romantic period - from Robert Burns to Coleridge - who have become legends and images. Still others are almost entirely new because they come from the little explored realm of women's writing. Together they help recover the power of Romantic poetry for a new generation of devoted readers."Article| Jeffrey Cane Robinson| Statement ..."
☯ Full Synopsis : "Now that her best friend has found happiness, Annika Bashir is bursting in anticipation for her own happily ever after. Just one problem: Spoiled and utterly vain Annika is engaged to a boorish, “family-approved” lawyer who wouldn’t know how to please a woman with an illustrated set of detailed instructions in hand. He’s perfect on paper, but a real letdown in reality. But as long as everyone else in Annika’s life gives him the thumbs-up, she’ll settle. Mad love is just a Hollywood fiction, after all, and she hasn’t allowed herself to dream that it could as wonderful as it seems to be for others. Marriage, at its essence, is an exercise in practicality. Enter Dr. Kiran Patil, a handsome, stoic surgeon at a charity hospital who rocks Annika’s world—and entire worldview—when she breaks her ankle during a short trip to India. But this doctor doesn’t do shallow, and scorns vapid women with an affinity for Gucci handbags and extravagant shopping trips. Will he scorn Annika also? Or will he become seduced by the woman she has become during her trip to exotic and mystical India, a place that seems to have the power to peel back her shallow layers and reveal intense passions buried deep down inside?

♥ Book Title : Intimacies
☯ Full Synopsis : "No culture is ever completely successful or satisfied with its synthesis of romantic love, companionship, and sexual desire. Whether the setting is a busy metropolis or a quiet farming village, a tension always exists between a community's sexual habits and customs and what it believes to be the proper context for love. Even in Western societies, we prefer sexual passion to romance and companionship, and no study of any culture has shown that individuals regard passion and affection equally. The pursuit of love and sex has generated an infinite number of ambiguities and contradictions, yet every community hopes to find a resolution to this conflict either by joining, dividing, or stressing one act over the other. In this follow-up to Romantic Passion: A Universal Experience?, William R. Jankowiak examines how different cultures rationalize the expression of passionate and comfort love and physical sex. He begins by mapping out the intricacies of the love/sex conundrum and the psychological dilemma of reconciling these competing forces. He then follows with essays on sex, love, and intimacy among Central African foragers and farmers; the love dyad in Lithuania; intimacy among the Lahu of Southwestern China; the interplay of love, sex, and marriage in the High Himalayas; verbalized experiences of love and sexuality in Indonesia; love work as it relates to sex work among prostitutes; intimacies and estrangements in the marital and extramarital relationships of Huli men; infidelity and masculinity in Southwestern Nigeria; and the ritual of sex and the rejuvenation of the love bond among married couples in the United States."Article| William R.
