Written as an autobiography about the turbulent 1960's and set against the backdrop of the emerging rock music scene, drugs, political assassinations, and the Viet Nam war, Some Are Born to Endless Night explores Jim Morrison's vision of American society in the growing chaos of that decade and highlights the literature and revolutionary philosophies behind his lyrics as a singer with the Doors. Nearly 40 years after Morrison's death Kirstein undertakes a review of Morrison's songs that reflected his crumbling psychological profile. As a devotee of Morrison and the music of the Doors he explores the mindset of Morrison and his rich literary and philosophical origins that include insights from Aldous Huxley, William Blake, poet Arthur Rimbaud, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Norman O. Brown's interpretation of both Nietzsche and Sigmund Freud. Kirstein discusses Nietzsche's magnetic influence on Morrison, and he interprets for the reader how Morrison may have unconsciously intimated a prophecy of riots and destruction by fire in a future Los Angeles. The author pieces together an unusual narrative that traces the decline and fall of the United States as reflected in Morrison's songs, starting from the JFK assassination in 1963 to a point where we currently find ourselves in a parallel world four decades later. The book describes a sense of unease in America which launched Kirstein into a self-exile as an international drifter who is ultimately drawn to a remote river in South America called Xingu. For followers of Jim Morrison and the Doors this book provides a diverse cultural snapshot of 1960's America and illustrates Morrison's remarkable talent as a lyricist and visionary, helping to explain the ongoing interest in Morrison's legacy and continuing popularity of the Doors music.

Though usually classified as a Romantic, Blake subverts and dissolves the binaries on which Romanticism turns: self and other, art and nature, country and city. Rather than reject the city outright like many of his contemporaries, Blake embraces it as the intricate workshop of human imagination. Each chapter of this book focuses on a specific text of Blake's that illustrates a particular conception of metaphorical embodiment of the city. These shifting metaphors emphasize the construction of all human environments and the need for imaginative labor to build and interpret them. This study seeks to bridge a gap between transcendent and historicist readings of Blake while at the same time challenging assumptions that still color our view of the city in the twenty-first century. Jennifer Davis Michael is Associate Professor of English at the University of the South.

Anton Winter a grandi en pleine nature, dans un jardin luxuriant et des bois touffus, un cocon de verdure gouverné par sa grand-mère, à distance du monde. Adulte, il s’occupe de ses oiseaux au dernier étage du plus grand immeuble de la ville, tandis qu’en contrebas, l’humanité vit ses dernières heures avant une apocalypse programmée. Hanté par le souvenir du jardin merveilleux de son enfance, il refuse de se résoudre au pire et tente d’imaginer avec Frederike, qu’il vient de rencontrer, le jour d’après. Née en 1989 à Graz, Valerie Fritsch est écrivain et photographe. Auteure de récits, de poèmes, de livres de photographie, elle a reçu plusieurs prix en Autriche et a été sélectionnée pour le Deutscher Buchpreis en 2015 pour Le Jardin de Winter.

Dès le titre il faut s’y attendre : une affaire de mœurs et de morale. D’un côté Thomas et son père Stanley. Un père défaillant dont le fils dans une violence ascendante refuse la fatalité. De l’autre Marie-Claude, un travesti qui un jour a décidé de changer les choses avec ses amies prostituées, s’en sortir, ne plus subir. En porte-parole affranchie, elle continue à raconter la vie de ces filles dans la péniche-bar qu’elle tient maintenant, à l’enseigne des Prostituées philosophes. C’est d’ailleurs devenu un lieu de rencontre pour Thomas et son amie Zoé qui écoutent, s’épaulent, se cherchent à l’ombre du père pauvre type et des typesses maternantes. Ici se posent les questions de l’identité, des limites, du poids de l’héritage, des arbres à abattre, des valeurs, pour lesquelles personne n’a de réponse mais qui doivent être posées. Nous sommes dans ces parages où la pensée ne se dissocie pas de la sensibilité mais où l’une l’autre se relaient et se relancent dans un mouvement d’élucidation qui ne cesse pas.

This classic of film criticism, long considered invaluable for its eloquent study of a problematic period in film history, is now substantially updated and revised by the author to include chapters beyond the Reagan era and into the twenty-first century. For the new edition, Robin Wood has written a substantial new preface that explores the interesting double context within which the book can be read-that in which it was written and that in which we find ourselves today. Among the other additions to this new edition are a celebration of modern "screwball" comedies like My Best Friend's Wedding, and an analysis of '90s American and Canadian teen movies in the vein of American Pie, Can't Hardly Wait, and Rollercoaster. Also included are a chapter on Hollywood today that looks at David Fincher and Jim Jarmusch (among others) and an illuminating essay on Day of the Dead.

From Los Angeles Times Book Prize winner Kem Nunn and “principal heir to the tradition of Raymond Chandler and Nathanael West” (The Washington Post)—an intense psychological suspense novel about a San Francisco neuropsychiatrist who becomes sexually involved with a woman suffering from multiple personality disorder, whose pathological ex-husband is an Oakland homicide detective. A dark tale involving psychiatric mystery, sexual obsession, fractured identities, and terrifyingly realistic violence—Chance is set amid the back streets of California’s Bay Area, far from the cleansing breezes of the ocean. Dr. Eldon Chance, a neuropsychiatrist, is a man primed for spectacular ruin. Into Dr. Chance’s blighted life walks Jaclyn Blackstone, the abused, attractive wife of an Oakland homicide detective, a violent and jealous man. Jaclyn appears to be suffering from a dissociative identity disorder. In time, Chance will fall into bed with her—or is it with her alter ego, the voracious and volatile Jackie Black? The not-so-good doctor, despite his professional training, isn’t quite sure—and thereby hangs his fascination with her. Meanwhile, Chance also meets a young man named D, a self-styled, streetwise philosopher skilled in the art of the blade. It is around this trio of unique and dangerous individuals that long guarded secrets begin to unravel, obsessions grow, and the doctor’s carefully arranged life comes to the brink of implosion. Amid San Francisco’s fluid, ever-shifting fog, in the cool, gray city of love, Dr. Chance will at last be forced to live up to his name. Chance is a twisted, harrowing, and impossible-to-put-down head trip through the fun house of fate, mesmerizing until the very last page.

« Pourquoi sortir l’affaire des disparues de Vancouver au moment des Jeux Olympiques ? parce qu’elle en est le négatif absolu ... D’un côté, les cimes, la blancheur, la glace, l’exploit, la vitesse, les corps vainqueurs, sublimés, venus du monde entier, ce que Vancouver veut montrer au monde, une image rêvée...De l’autre, la noirceur, un gouffre au cœur de la ville – le downtown eastside – les corps vaincus, prostitués, détruits, drogués, les Indiennes – ce sont en effet les trois-quarts des filles de Skid Row - l’échec, la mort, tout ce que l’on voudrait cacher. Le monde entier va parler de Vancouver, en février 2010 : Les Disparues de Vancouver, c’est une autre façon de parler de cette ville, à travers ce fait-divers terrifiant, qui est avant tout un fait de société, glaçant, révélateur du sort que l’Amérique du Nord réserve à ses Indiens... On peut parler d’un génocide, Les Disparues de Vancouver sont une métaphore de ce massacre, sur lequel l’Amérique s’est bâtie, du nord au sud. Affaire qui continue d’ailleurs, puisque d’autres filles ont disparu du downtown eastside, neuf à ce jour, depuis l’arrestation de Pickton le boucher ». E.F.

As the lead singer of the Doors, Jim Morrison’s searing poetic vision and voracious appetite for sexual, spiritual, and psychedelic experience inflamed the spirit and psyche of a generation. Since his mysterious death in 1971, millions more fans from a new generation have embraced his legacy, as layers of myth have gathered to enshroud the life, career, and true character of the man who was James Douglas Morrison. In Jim Morrison, critically acclaimed journalist Stephen Davis, author of Hammer of the Gods, unmasks Morrison’s constructed personas of the Lizard King and Mr. Mojo Risin’ to reveal a man of fierce intelligence whose own destructive tendencies both fueled his creative ambitions and brought about his downfall. Gathered from dozens of original interviews and investigations of Morrison’s personal journals, Davis has assembled a vivid portrait of a misunderstood genius, tracing the arc of Morrison’s life from his troubled youth to his international stardom, when his drug and alcohol binges, tumultuous sexual affairs, and fractious personal relationships reached a frenzied peak. For the first time, Davis is able to reconstruct Morrison’s last days in Paris to solve one of the greatest mysteries in music history in a shocking final chapter. Compelling and harrowing, intimate and revelatory, Jim Morrison is the definitive biography of the rock idol in snakeskin and leather who defined the 1960s.

This title, first published in 1909, presents a selection of the most important essays by members of the renowned Browning Society, which existed to promulgate the works of and appreciation for perhaps the greatest English poet of the Victorian Age. Browning’s poetry deals with themes that are of perennial importance: the nature of the human person, human love, and the source of the love, God. Browning Studies will appeal to Browning enthusiasts and the message his writing communicates: "A profound, passionate, living, triumphant faith in Christ, and in the immortality and ultimate redemption of every human soul in and through Christ."
