Download or read book The Girl Who Wrote Loneliness A Novel written by Kyung-Sook Shin and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2015-09-15 with total page 400 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The highly anticipated release of the most personal novel by Kyung-Sook Shin, who first burst on to the literary scene with the New York Times bestseller, Please Look After Mom. Homesick and alone, a teen-aged girl has just arrived in Seoul to work in a factory. Her family, still in the countryside, is too impoverished to keep sending her to school, so she works long, sun-less days on a stereo-assembly line, struggling through night school every evening in order to achieve her dream of becoming a writer. Korea’s brightest literary star sets this complex and nuanced coming-of-age story against the backdrop of Korea’s industrial sweatshops of the 1970’s and takes on the extreme exploitation, oppression, and urbanization that helped catapult Korea’s economy out of the ashes of war. But it was girls like Shin’s heroine who formed the bottom of Seoul’s rapidly changing social hierarchy, forgotten and ignored. Richly autobiographical, The Girl Who Wrote Loneliness lays bare the conflict and confusion Shin faces as she confronts her past and the sweeping social change of the past half-century. Cited in Korea as one of the most important literary novels of the decade, this novel cements Shin’s legacy as one of the most insightful and exciting writers of her generation.

Download or read book International Cinema and the Girl written by Fiona Handyside and published by Springer. This book was released on 2016-04-29 with total page 219 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the precocious charms of Shirley Temple to the box-office behemoth Frozen and its two young female leads, Anna and Elsa, the girl has long been a figure of fascination for cinema. The symbol of (imagined) childhood innocence, the site of intrigue and nostalgia for adults, a metaphor for the precarious nature of subjectivity itself, the girl is caught between infancy and adulthood, between objectification and power. She speaks to many strands of interest for film studies: feminist questions of cinematic representation of female subjects; historical accounts of shifting images of girls and childhood in the cinema; and philosophical engagements with the possibilities for the subject in film. This collection considers the specificity of girls' experiences and their cinematic articulation through a multicultural feminist lens which cuts across the divides of popular/art-house, Western/non Western, and north/south. Drawing on examples from North and South America, Asia, Africa, and Europe, the contributors bring a new understanding of the global/local nature of girlhood and its relation to contemporary phenomena such as post-feminism, neoliberalism and queer subcultures. Containing work by established and emerging scholars, this volume explodes the narrow post-feminist canon and expands existing geographical, ethnic, and historical accounts of cinematic cultures and girlhood.

This book was released on 2016-09-13 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Nineteenth-century British periodicals for girls and women offer a wealth of material to understand how girls and women fit into their social and cultural worlds, of which music making was an important part. The Girl's Own Paper, first published in 1880, stands out because of its rich musical content. Keeping practical usefulness as a research tool and as a guide to further reading in mind, Judith Barger has catalogued the musical content found in the weekly and later monthly issues during the magazine's first thirty years, in music scores, instalments of serialized fiction about musicians, music-related nonfiction, poetry with a musical title or theme, illustrations depicting music making and replies to musical correspondents. The book's introductory chapter reveals how content in The Girl's Own Paper changed over time to reflect a shift in women's music making from a female accomplishment to an increasingly professional role within the discipline, using 'the piano girl' as a case study. A comparison with musical content found in The Boy's Own Paper over the same time span offers additional insight into musical content chosen for the girls' magazine. A user's guide precedes the chronological annotated catalogue; the indexes that follow reveal the magazine's diversity of approach to the subject of music.

Download or read book 200 Ways to Raise a Girl s Self Esteem written by Will Glennon and published by Mango Media. This book was released on 1999-05-01 with total page 436 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This guide on boosting girls’ confidence “resembles Richard Carlson’s Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff . . . [Glennon’s] heartfelt, helpful advice rings clear” (Publishers Weekly). Studies show that young girls often develop faster than their male counterparts, grasping concepts such as math and sports just as easily—until they reach early adolescence. Then, girls quickly fall behind boys, victims to society’s confusing dictates of what being female means. 200 Ways to Raise a Girl’s Self-Esteem provides straightforward advice and helpful guidelines for parents and teachers who want to help girls build positive self-images and develop full, exuberant lives. Parenting expert Will Glennon guides you through how to raise a young girl’s self-esteem through carefully considered “boosters,” the key to helping girls hold their own in the world. This guide helps you understand the subtle difference between “boosters” and “busters.” For example, complimenting a young woman on her appearance may give her the idea that she is valued only for her looks, whereas complimenting her ability to complete a complicated homework assignment boosts her confidence in her intelligence. Find ways to impart a strong sense of self-worth to girls in everyday situations with 200 Ways to Raise a Girl’s Self-Esteem. Teach, advise, and create rituals that help girls navigate their transition into womanhood. 200 Ways to Raise a Girl’s Self-Esteem is a practical guide for raising healthy girls and provides exercises for parents and teachers. “Combines practical ideas with the encouragement to invest the reader’s compassion into themselves and their daughters, realigning their priorities and finding a place where these ideas can be applied in appropriate and meaningful ways.” —Foreword Reviews
