Summary:

Situé dans les montagnes Rocheuses, l’Overlook Hotel est tenu pour être l’un des plus beaux lieux du monde. Beauté, confort, luxe, volupté...L’hiver, l’hôtel est fermé, coupé du monde par le froid, la neige, les glaces. Seul l’habite un gardien. Cet hiver-là, c’est Jack Torrance, un alcoolique qui tente d’échapper à l’échec et au désespoir. Il est venu accompagné de sa femme, Wendy, qui espère, grâce à cet isolement, reconstruire son foyer menacé, et de leur enfant, Danny. Mais Danny possède le don de sentir, de voir, de ressusciter les choses et les êtres à jamais disparus. Dans les cent dix chambres vides de l’Overlook, le démon est omniprésent. Cauchemar ou réalité, le corps de cette femme assassinée, ces bruits de fête qui derivent dans les couloirs, cette vie si étrange qui anime l’hôtel ? Stephen King est considéré dans le monde entier comme le maître de la littérature d’épouvante. Shining – dont Docteur Sleep est la suite – demeure son roman le plus célèbre, adapté prodigieusement par Stanley Kubrick, avec Jack Nicholson dans le rôle principal. Traduit de l’anglais (États-Unis) par Joan Bernard.

Summary:

For many years now there has been an upsurge in revelation stories and alternative viewpoints on man's history. People such as Graham Hancock and Lawrence Gardner have brought to light many new ideas and many new problems. Now there is a new theory which is all-encompassing and clearly brings into focus a more sinister reason behind the emergence of civilisation. In his theory on Atlantis Graham Hancock is receiving much admiration and academic acclaim. Standard academic thought is more towards the spontaneous eruption of civilisation across the globe, with little or no explanation of why there are so many similarities between the cultures. Now, Philip Gardiner, in his new book THE SHINING ONES is set to turn even this upon its head. The theory is so simple that it begs the question, why has it not been thought of before? The reason for universal similarity of architecture, language, art, travel and religious belief is quite simply an ancient and secret religious brotherhood who have hidden themselves deep within the symbols, ciphers and codes of our ancient texts for hundreds of years. They held a secret knowledge and power base which spread with them across the globe. The very title that they have given themselves is hidden within the standard text and religious books we use every day -- The Shining Ones. Put like this, the whole thing can sound like an X-Files conspiracy theory. However the author has invested huge amounts of time and energy checking, researching and seeking the advice of academics. Now the theory is attracting the attention of historians who can see that the patterns are as subtle as this author proposes. The fact is, this theory does explain away all the problems with dating and variations that people such as Hancock have come up against. Many academics and especially Egyptologists are now turning to this way of thinking and with Gardiners spirit and broad knowledge in history and language the history of the ancients and the secrets that they hold are becoming more clear. There are of course dissenters. The author has been accosted for his standpoint and there are still those hardened academics and even non-academics who refuse to even listen. However, there is a major TV documentary in pre-production stages and with interviews planned across the nation on radio and TV the message may soon be accepted as a credible theory.

Summary:

The basis of The Shining by Stanley Kubrick and The Shining by Stephen King is the novel The Shining by Stephen King. Both movies, however, are fundamentally different. Whereas Kubrick tries to put emphasis on the character development of Jack Torrance combining this with unique camera work, music, and various motifs in order to display the real horror coming from Jack himself, King tries to show what happens to a person in an isolated and haunted hotel, emphasizes, however, little Danny and his shining. Thus, Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining can be considered a masterpiece of modern horror. King’s version therefore seems like a mere and ordinary copy. This essay compares the two movies of The Shining by Stanley Kubrick and Stephen King. Both films are directly taken from the novel The Shining written by Stephen King in 1977. Stanley Kubrick and Diane Johnson took the book as the basis for the screenplay to Kubrick’s The Shining (1980). They basically stripped everything off the book until the bare character Jack Torrance and his transformation were revealed. They then incorporated several motifs, which will be talked about later. Thus, Kubrick was able to create a movie displaying real horror coming from the mind/soul of a human being and not from ghosts or alien-monsters. Stephen King has been known for not liking and harshly criticising Kubrick’s adaptation of his novel, since he “said that The Shining includes an exploration of alcohol dependence and relationships with parents and children in one's life.” Therefore, Stephen King produced his own TV mini-series of The Shining in 1997 – an exact book to movie adaptation directed by Mick Garris. To emphasize the dramatic differences between the two novels this essay will compare the camera work, the music, and the characters and in addition will explain the motifs used by Stanley Kubrick. Consequently, it is shown that Stanley Kubrick’s version can be considered as the masterpiece of modern horror, whereas Stephen King’s film version of his novel seems to be no more than a mere and ordinary stereotype.

Summary:

High up on a steep mountainside in the Peruvian Andes and Indian shepherd boy watched his flock. Though he could never have imagined it, God had chosen him for a remarkable task. The divine plan for Romulo Saune's life would lead him out of the isolation and poverty of his remote mountain village to a place of leadership in His church, ultimately standing on the world stage with other international Christian leaders. God'd plan would take a boy handicapped by a learning disability--nearly illiterate--and eventually place him at the head of a ream of scholars translating the Bible into the Quechua language. But at the light of the gospel penetrated the remote mountain regions of Peru, another and very different gospel began to spread. The Shining Path--one of the world's most violent terrorist groups--fanned out into the highlands in a ruthless campaign to coerce people to join their cause. They believed that Peru's hope lay solely in the Maoist vision of a socialist society. The Christians were just as convinced that Jesus Christ alone has the answers for the human heart and for the problems plaguing Peruvian society. A collision was inevitable. In the time of incredible suffering for the church, one man's heroism and commitment to Christ stands out. This is the story of his life.

Summary:

The stunning biographical portraits in Modern Girls, Shining Stars, the Skies of Tokyo, some adapted from essays that first appeared in The New Yorker, explore the lives of five women who did their best to stand up and cause more trouble than was considered proper in Japanese society. Their lives stretch across a century and a half of explosive cultural and political transformations in Japan. These five artists-two actresses, two writers, and a painter-were noted for their talents, their beauty, and their love affairs rather than for any association with politics. But through the fearlessness of their art and their private lives, they influenced the attitudes of their times and challenged the status quo. Phyllis Birnbaum presents her subjects from various perspectives, allowing them to shine forth in all of their contradictory brilliance: generous and petulant, daring and timid, prudent and foolish. There is Matsui Sumako, the actress who introduced Ibsen's Nora and Wilde's Salome to Japanese audiences but is best remembered for her ambition, obstreperous temperament and turbulent love life. We also meet Takamura Chieko, a promising but ultimately disappointed modernist painter whose descent into mental illness was immortalized in poetry by a husband who may well have been the source of her troubles. In a startling act of rebellion, the sensitive, aristocratic poet Yanagiwara Byakuren left her crude and powerful husband, eloped with her revolutionary lover, and published her request for a divorce in the newspapers. Uno Chiyo was a popular novelist who preferred to be remembered for the romantic wars she fought. Willful, shrewd, and ambitious, Uno struggled for sexual liberation and literary merit. Birnbaum concludes by exploring the life and career of Takamine Hideko, a Japanese film star who portrayed wholesome working-class heroines in hundreds of films, working with such directors as Naruse, Kinoshita, Ozu, and Kurosawa. Angry about a childhood spent working to provide for greedy relatives, Takamine nevertheless made peace with her troubled past and was rewarded for years of hard work with a brilliant career. Drawing on fictional accounts, interviews, memoirs, newspaper reports, and the creative works of her subjects, Birnbaum has created vivid, seamless narrative portraits of these five remarkable women.

Summary:

Can one mistake destroy the chance of a lifetime? A girl discovers there are many ways of being true in this magnificent ode to handwritten letters and the shining power of friendship from the author of Dovey Coe, set in the Appalachian mountains of 1920s North Carolina. One true friend. Someone shining. That’s all twelve-year-old Arie Mae wants. But shining true friends are hard to come by deep in the mountains of western North Carolina, so she sets her sights on a cousin unseen, someone who lives all the way away in the big city of Raleigh, North Carolina. Three unanswered letters later, Arie Mae learns that a group of kids from Baltimore are coming to spend a summer on the mountain. Arie Mae loves her smudge of a town—she knows there’s nothing finer than Pa’s fiddling and Mama’s apple cake, but she also knows Big City folk might feel differently. How else to explain the song catcher ladies who have descended upon the village in search of “traditional tunes” and their intention to help “save” the townspeople? But when the group from Baltimore arrives, it seems there just might be a gem among them, one shining boy who doesn’t seem to notice Arie Mae wears the same dress every day and prefers to go barefoot. So what if he has a bit of a limp and a rumored heart problem—he also is keen about everything Arie Mae is keen about, and has all the makings of a true friend. And so what if the boy’s mother warns him not to exert himself? He and Arie Mae have adventures to go on! In between writing letters to her cousin, Arie Mae leads her one shining friend on ghost hunts and bear chases. But it turns out those warnings were for a reason… “Arie Mae’s openheartedness and yearning for connection make for a deeply poignant story, one with a richly realized setting and cast. As Arie Mae begins to see her life in a new light, Dowell (The Second Life of Abigail Walker) examines the clash between city and country life and what true wealth really means” (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

Summary:

In the Mahabharata, a Takshaa asks Tudishtira, “What is the greatest miracle?” Yudishtira replies, “The greatest miracle is that we, although always surrounded by death and decay, live as if we are immortal”. What a very profound answer that is, we live as if we are immortal while we can drop dead in the next minute. Without the inward realization that life and death are just the movement of Love we are bound to repeat the same dreams and nightmares over and over again. That the poems in Shining Through may guide you to the Love within, the Love you are in The Beloved. That is the poet’s true wish.
