Book The Legend of Dell Briggers

Download or read book The Legend of Dell Briggers written by Joe Hilley and published by Dunlavy Gray. This book was released on 2020-02-03 with total page 270 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Dell Briggers was born in Vidalia, Georgia--or so he said--and I believed him, too. When we were growing up, he was my best friend and we told each other everything. But then he died and at his funeral I learned he was actually from Hot Springs, Arkansas; that his father had never worked at a top secret Navy base; and that his mother had never even been to Hollywood ... much less acted in movies or been mentored by Tallulah Bankhead. So, after the funeral, I decided to find out who he really was. And that's where story begins. Using vivid characters, superb writing, and unforgettable stories, Joe Hilley brings us tales that read like a front porch conversation--gossip we've longed to know, questions we've wanted to ask, memories we've tried to forget. The Legend of Dell Briggers presents contemplative fiction at its finest.

Book Ireland s Mysterious Lands and Sunken Cities

Download or read book Ireland s Mysterious Lands and Sunken Cities written by Jon Douglas Singer and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2001-04-13 with total page 106 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Emerald Isle of Ireland has inspired a vast number of legends about lost or sunken lands and cities. These legends predate Roman and Christian influences. This book examines the intriguing nature of these legends and reviews anthropological and geological evidence supporting them. Was these indeed a Tir-fo-Thuin, the Land Under Wave, a combination of the dead and a paradise? Reviewed in Ireland of the Welcomes , Vol. 50, No. 6, November - December 2001, p.54 by Mary OSullivan Stories of sunken cities, monasteries, churches and royal palaces are scattered hither and yon across the broad landscape of Irish folklore. The fishermen of Lough Neagh believe that their huge lake conceals the proud remains of palaces and temples more firmly than the inhabitants of Scotland accept the existence of the Lough Ness monster. Hy Brazil or Hy Breasail, the legendary sunken paradise island is, of course, somewhere off the western seaboard, and thanks to its frequent reappearances on the surface, it persists on maps into the sixteenth century. The great Thomas Westropp reports personal sightings, one evening after sunset in 1887 off the Clare coast and again in 1910, this time on the Mayo coast! There are persistent stories of the image of a stately city clearly visible set in the sky above Galway bay, usually during spells of warm calm sunny weather`Come over next summer with an open mind. You never know your luck!

Book Routledge Encyclopedia of Narrative Theory

Download or read book Routledge Encyclopedia of Narrative Theory written by David Herman and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2010-06-10 with total page 1327 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The past several decades have seen an explosion of interest in narrative, with this multifaceted object of inquiry becoming a central concern in a wide range of disciplinary fields and research contexts. As accounts of what happened to particular people in particular circumstances and with specific consequences, stories have come to be viewed as a basic human strategy for coming to terms with time, process, and change. However, the very predominance of narrative as a focus of interest across multiple disciplines makes it imperative for scholars, teachers, and students to have access to a comprehensive reference resource.

Book Waterborne Pageants and Festivities in the Renaissance

Download or read book Waterborne Pageants and Festivities in the Renaissance written by Dr Linda Briggs and published by Ashgate Publishing, Ltd.. This book was released on 2013-12-28 with total page 598 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: As the first book-length study of waterborne festivities in Renaissance and early modern Europe, this collection of essays draws on a rich array of sources, many previously un-researched, to explore aspects of scenography, choreography, music, fashion, painting, sculpture, architecture, stage-and personnel-management and urban planning as evinced in spectacles staged on water. Bodies of water in all their variety are explored here: seas, rivers, fountains, lakes and canals and flooded improvised locations within or adjacent to great buildings all provided stages for elaborate and costly performances, utilising the particular qualities of water to reflect light and distort sound. The volume encompasses festivals marking a wide range of occasions from the election of civic officials, the welcome of a monarch, an investiture or coronation, to ambassadorial visits or the arrival of a royal or ducal bride or bridegroom. Often taking the form of re-enactments of naval battles or legendary seaborne quests, these festivals seek to buttress civic and national pride, make claims to mastery over the sea and landscape, and explore the imaginative as well as practical life of performance space which has been a hallmark of the research and publication of this volume's honorand, J.R. (Ronnie) Mulryne.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Through an original analysis of its structure and dynamics, the fairy tale ceases to be one of the many genres of fantastic narrative and rises to become a category, a universal modality both of the storytelling and of a world vision. The objective is to render the fairy tale a sort of emblematic location, where the study of narrative texts integrates itself with the socio-historical contexts of the Irish tradition.

Book Overthrowing the Queen

Download or read book Overthrowing the Queen written by Tom Mould and published by . This book was released on 2020-08-04 with total page 382 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1976, Ronald Reagan hit the campaign trail with an extraordinary account of a woman committing massive welfare fraud. The story caught fire and a devastating symbol of the misuse government programs was born: the Welfare Queen. Overthrowing the Queen examines these legends of fraud and abuse while bringing to light personal stories of hardship and hope told by cashiers, bus drivers, and business owners; politicians and aid providers; and, most important, aid recipients themselves. Together these stories reveal how the seemingly innocent act of storytelling can create not only powerful stereotypes that shape public policy, but also redemptive counter-narratives that offer hope of a more accurate, fair, and empathetic view of poverty in America today. Overthrowing the Queen tackles perceptions of welfare recipients while proposing new approaches to the study of oral narrative that extend far beyond the study of welfare, poverty, and social justice.

Book The Deathly Embrace

Download or read book The Deathly Embrace written by Sheng-mei Ma and published by U of Minnesota Press. This book was released on 2000 with total page 214 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Asian American resistance to Orientalism -- the Western tradition dealing with the subject and subjugation of the East -- is usually assumed. And yet, as this provocative work demonstrates, in order to refute racist stereotypes they must first be evoked, and in the process the two often become entangled. Sheng-mei Ma shows how the distinguished careers of post-1960s Asian American writers such as Maxine Hong Kingston, Amy Tan, Frank Chin, and David Henry Hwang reveal that while Asian American identity is constructed in reaction to Orientalism, the two cultural forces are not necessarily at odds. The vigor with which these Asian Americans revolt against Orientalism in fact tacitly acknowledges the family lineage of the two.
