Centuries


Centuries


$14.95


Joel Brouwer writes prose poems that walk a wire of anxiety through contemporary life where “you realize you’re naked under your coat, you don’t remember a single line, and you’ll have to go on like that, you’ll have to go on and sing.” And yet the pieces in Centuries are so various and unpredictable and startling, sometimes hyperbolic, often sordid. “The garage smells of turpentine and dirty magazines. The freezer hums with meat. You pour yourself an insecticide martini, scratch idly at your wart, and chit-chat with a cricket.” Brouwer’s universe, finally, as it springs and bristles with odd, nightmarish details and human voices, is able to circle back to a place of consolation where “A body has soft and hards parts, like a piano. Music comes from where they meet.” In the end, Brouwer uses the disparate contingencies of existence like an instrument through which he can control chaos through art, through language.

Cotswolds Arts and Crafts Architecture


Cotswolds Arts and Crafts Architecture


$20.37


Between 1890 and 1930, Arts and Crafts architecture proliferat­ed within the Cotswolds. The range and quality of the buildings was exceptional as the region provided the perfect environment for the Movement’s ideals and principles. Arts and Crafts archi­tects relished the robust vernacular precedent as it channeled their ideas and stimulated their imaginations. Its rational basis and dependence on craft skills had lasting value, and it was no coincidence that the most influential aspect of their work was its emphasis on conservation. The Arts and Crafts Movement in the Cotswolds has at­tracted much interest in recent decades, the appeal of the simple life and of traditional values detached from the pres­sures of modern society having as much allure now as it did a century ago. Most of these studies have referred to the work of architects in the region, but the subject has not received the specialist attention it deserves until now. This book examines the impact of the Movement on the Cotswold landscape, on the survival of its building traditions, and on modern attitudes to building conservation. After an introductory section which outlines the Movement’s origins and beliefs and its architectural principles, the main part of the book provides a guide to the general characteristics associated with Arts and Crafts building in the Cotswolds. There are separate chapters on the various types of new commission that were undertaken, from small and large country houses and cottages to village halls and almshouses, not to mention the numerous repair and remodeling jobs on existing buildings that had become derelict following the social and economic up­heavals of industrialization. The final chapter looks at the late flowering of architectural work in the region during the interwar period and beyond, and the legacy of this important body of work at a local and national level.

Touching on themes of love, birth, death, change, and nature; submerge your meditations into the truths of old world religions, mysticism, Eastern and Western philosophies, and new age awakenings. Listen to the insights of sages and rumors from Egypt, Mesopotamia, Rome, Asia, Greece, Africa and the Americas. Pry at the very roots and constructs of Jungian symbolism and ostensibly abstract thought. Brood over humanity’s outward manifestations of a collective and dynamic consciousness that lurks within the aboriginal self; suggesting a powerful struggle between concepts of inner and outer reality. McGill is searching for the delicate fragrances of ancient knowledge, perceptions, and primordial archetypes that like a thin, veiled mist, lingers dormant in the folklore, stories, mythology, tradition and art of our human progenitors, all culminating to impress the reader with a sense of our greater purpose in life. McGill, a classically trained and internationally acclaimed poet, was taught personally by contemporary and past masters such as the protégé of W.H. Auden, one of the greatest poets of the 20th century, and by the eminent naturalist and intellectual, Dr. Allen W. Eckert. McGill is best known for his advocacy of the poetic arts, and is the editor and author of the award-winning McGill English Dictionary of Rhyme, which is used by tens of thousands of writers from over 100 countries, and stands as the world’s most extensive rhyming reference ever created in the history of the English language.

Consuming Fashion


Consuming Fashion


$2.05


Clothing the body is one of the most complicated acts of daily existence. When a nun ponders red shoes, an architect knots his bowtie, a lesbian laces her Doc Marten’s, or a nude model disrobes, each is engaging in a process of identity-making that is both intensely personal and deeply social. In an increasingly material world, negotiating dress codes is a nuanced art, informed by shifting patterns of power and authority, play and performance, as well as gender, sexuality, class, ethnicity and race. Drawing on ethnographic knowledge to connect theory and practice, authors reveal links between material culture, social and economic forces and personal performance – from trade beads to Barbie, and from Taiwanese producer to Nike consumer – to explain clothing choices through time and across cultures. Conventional understandings of the self, subject and society are shown to be inadequate when examining the interconnections of cultural and transnational economic systems of production and consumption that have a profound effect on human choice. Social climates in which dress accrues meaning are increasingly global climates, where women’s bodies are commodified, gender categories are rigidly bound, and sweatshop labourers are slaves to boundless consumer appetite. This interdisciplinary book represents an important contribution to a fascinating and contested realm of human experience, and will be indispensable for anyone interested in the sociology, anthropology and psychology of fashion, cultural studies or the fashion industry.

This is a remarkable story. A newly retired schoolteacher goes to live in the countryside in the County of Clare in western Ireland. There he meets and gets to know a recent immigrant, an enigmatic character by the name of Gunna Dan. The hapless and helpless visitor begs to be told what life is all about in his new adopted abode and what it is that gives meaning and purpose to our existence here on planet Earth. What follows is a powerful exposition of discussion and argument. We witness a revelation of thoughts and ideas. We experience the pursuit of knowledge close up. We take part in a journey that leads us into new worlds of enlightenment and understanding; of purpose and meaning; of wisdom and kindness; of truth and spirituality; of religion and Christianity. And all of this happens within a wonderful medley of memory and reminiscence; of history and culture; of art and science; of philosophy and mysticism. The presentation of viewpoints and arguments is daring and evocative, to the extent that readers will be delightfully challenged to more positively re-examine the great importance of their own personal existence here on planet Earth.

I read and wrote to invoke what seemed impossible – relation itself – in order to take part in a world that ceaselessly makes itself up, to “wake up” to the world, to recognize the world, to be convinced that the world exists, to take revenge on the world for not existing. – from Uncertain ReadingSince cofounding San Francisco’s influential New Narrative circle in 1979, Robert Gl?ck has been one of America’s finest prose stylists of innovative fiction, bending narrative into the service of autobiography, politics, and gay writing. This collection brings together for the first time Gl?ck’s nonfiction, a revelatory body of work that anchors his writing practice. Gl?ck’s essays explore the ways that storytelling and selfhood are mutually embedded cultural forms, cohering a fractured social reality where generating narrative means generating identity means generating community. “I’d laugh at (make art from) any version of self,” Gl?ck writes, “I write about these forms – that are myself – to dispense with them, to demonstrate how they disintegrate before the world, the body.” For any body – or text – to know itself, it must first see how it sees the world, and understand itself as writing. Gl?ck’s essays affirm this radical narratorial precept in rich spirals of reading, self-reflection, anecdote, escapade, and “metatext.” These texts span the author’s career and his creative affinities – from lost manifestos theorizing the poetics of New Narrative; to encomia for literary and philosophic muses (Kathy Acker, the HOW(ever) poets, Frank O’Hara, Georges Bataille, and others); to narrative journalism, book reviews, criticism, and public talks. Many of the texts are culled from obscure little magazines and ephemeral online sources; others have never been published. As lucid as story, as lush as theory, and as irresistible as gossip, Gl?ck’s essays are the quintessence of New Narrative theory in pra
