Summary:

1. The Dialectic of the Sex-Motif in Literature Sex is a function of culture; in literature today it plays only a small though aggressively righteous part. Nature, long held in bondage, periodically breaks out in revolt, but its victory is never complete. In every society, prim itive as well as modem, the sexual instinct is for good or evil always subject to some measure of regulation and restraint. In literature, where the battle between love and sex, spirit and flesh, is fought out in terms of symbolic action, the writers support their cause, for or against sexual freedom, with varying degrees of evangelical ardor and outspokenness. On this issue there is no unanimity for the simple reason that American culture is not unified in its beliefs concerning the nature of man. The central conflict between instinctual needs and the claims of the ideal, between physical desire and the inner check, between Dionysus and Christ, goes on all the time. Sublimation is the cultural process whereby sexual energy is deflected from its biological source and diverted into spiritually "higher" and socially more useful channels. But sublimation is for most men hard to achieve. As civilization grows more complex, the individual is exposed to a series of increasingly severe moral strains. Pitted against Nature while subject to its laws, he must hence forth be governed in his behavior by inner as well as outer controls.

Summary:

First published in 1962 and long unavailable, BEYOND THE CHAINS OF ILLUSION is, only at first glance, a book about Marx and Freud--those two intellectual giants of the 20th century. Fromm here shows himself an outstanding interpreter of Marx. In all, Fromm's re-creation of the Freudian and Marxist way of thinking is, essentially, a look at the individual and society. BEYOND THE CHAINS OF ILLUSION will introduce many of today's readers to unknown aspects of Marx and Freud, as it also serves as a unique introduction to the life and mind of Erich Fromm as well. A new foreword by Fromm Literary Executor Rainer Funk puts this book into historic context and high relief.

Summary:

The light at the end of the tunnel is not an illusion. The tunnel is. I never expected someone I knew wanted me dead. I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised. Jealousy has been motivating people to do horrible things for all of history, and when you’ve made as much money as I have, it’s hard not to be the target of the green-eyed monster. I also didn’t expect my beautiful bodyguard Sam to throw herself in front of a bullet for me. No one has ever risked their life like that me before, especially a woman I’m falling for. Is it totally messed up I’m almost glad the man who tried to kill me escaped? Yeah, I feel that way because it means I can spend more time with Sam. Now we’re both distracted, and there’s still someone out there who wants me dead. But I care more about convincing Sam that we have something real together. Something that goes deeper than just steaming up my bedroom. I don’t think she believes me. Sam thinks our relationship is nothing more than an illusion.

Summary:

A ragtag crew with forbidden magic must pull off an elaborate heist and stop a civil war in An Illusion of Thieves, a fantasy adventure from Cate Glass. In Cantagna, being a sorcerer is a death sentence. Romy escapes her hardscrabble upbringing when she becomes courtesan to the Shadow Lord, a revolutionary noble who brings laws and comforts once reserved for the wealthy to all. When her brother, Neri, is caught thieving with the aid of magic, Romy's aristocratic influence is the only thing that can spare his life—and the price is her banishment. Now back in Beggar’s Ring, she has just her wits and her own long-hidden sorcery to help her and Neri survive. But when a plot to overthrow the Shadow Lord and incite civil war is uncovered, only Romy knows how to stop it. To do so, she’ll have to rely on newfound allies—a swordmaster, a silversmith, and her own thieving brother. And they'll need the very thing that could condemn them all: magic.

Ce roman foisonnant d'intrigues, de ruses, de magie et de passion est le roman d'une femme au coeur de l'Histoire, celle de l'Inde des anciennes légendes et des dieux tout-puissants qui se mêlent aux mortels.Lorsque Draupadi était encore petite fille dans le palais de son père, le sage Vyasa lui a prédit son avenir : elle épousera les cinq plus grands héros de son temps et sera la maîtresse du plus magique des palais, mais elle déclenchera aussi une terrible guerre qui mettra fin au « Troisième Age de l'Homme ».Draupadi, fière et rebelle, suivra-t-elle le chemin que les dieux ont tracé pour elle ?Le Palais des illusions est la réalisation envoûtante d'une promesse que Divakaruni s'était faite, enfant, en lisant le Mahabharata : « Si un jour j'écris un livre je placerai les femmes au premier plan de l'action. Je dévoilerai l'histoire invisible qui repose entre les lignes des prouesses des hommes. »
