♥ Book Title : Cultural Difference and Material Culture in Middle English Romance
☯ Full Synopsis : "This book explores how the cultural distinctions and conflicts between Anglo-Saxons and Normans originating with the Norman Conquest of 1066 prevailed well into the fourteenth century and are manifest in a significant number of Middle English romances including King Horn, Havelok the Dane, Sir Orfeo, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and others. Specifically, the study looks at how the material culture of these poems (architecture, battle tactic, landscapes) systematically and persistently distinguishes between Norman and Anglo-Saxon cultural identity. Additionally, it examines the influence of the English Outlaw Tradition, itself grounded in Anglo-Saxon resistance to the Norman Conquest, as expressed in specific recurring scenes (disguise and infiltration, forest exile) found in many Middle English romances. In the broadest sense, a significant number of Middle English romances, including some of the most well-read and often-taught, set up a dichotomy of two ruling houses headed by a powerful lord, who compete for power and influence. This book examines the cultural heritage behind each of these pairings to show how poets repeatedly contrast essentially Norman and Anglo-Saxon values and ruling styles."Article| Dominique Battles| Statement ..."

☯ Full Synopsis : ""Ever wonder what it's like to perform in a mega hit musical (when you have little idea what you're doing)? From her audition to closing night -- to every moment in between -- Felicia takes you behind the scenes of her first professional show (ever!) as she understudies the lead character of Elphaba in Wicked's San Francisco company. As she leaps professional hurdles, she faces personal challenges as well: falling in love after heartbreak (with a spatula-wielding muscle hunk), living far away from home (in the worst neighborhood of all time), confronting her overachiever demons (and an all-consuming fear of failure), and learning, time and again, what it means to be green"--P.  of cover."Article| Felicia Ricci| Statement ..."
♥ Book Title : Bring out Your Dead
☯ Full Synopsis : "Thousands of years ago, a spontaneous mutation resulted in a new species of mankind; more powerful, far more intelligent, and more capable than ourselves. Imbued with physical characteristics that set them apart from everyone else on earth, the Otherswere viewed as demons or evil. The offspring of parents carrying the mutant genes, the Otherswere feared, despised, and ultimately hunted by a powerful, secretive organization called the Venice Protectorate, the sole purpose of which was to kill all of the Others as soon as they were born. Over centuries, the Protectorate succeeded in destroying virtually all who carried the mutant genes. The time of the Others is over until a brilliant young geneticist, Jane Becker, finds evidence of the Others and locates a source of pure mutant DNA. Now Dr. Becker must decide whether to genetically reengineer the Others or let them die out before the Protectorate finds her. The fate of the world hangs in the balance as Bring Out Your Dead races to its thrilling conclusion."Article| Terry Ryan| Statement ..."
