Stolen Glimpses, Captive Shadows Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

"We watch what is moving fast from a platform that is also moving fast," writes Geoffrey O'Brien in the beginning of Stolen Glimpses, Captive Shadows. This collection—gathering the best of a decade's worth of writing on film by one of our most bracing and imaginative critics—ranges freely over the past, present, and future of the movies, from the primal visual poetry of the silent era to the dizzying permutations of the merging digital age. Here are 38 searching essays on contemporary blockbusters like Spider–Man and Minority Report; recent innovative triumphs like The Tree of Life and Beasts of the Southern Wild; and the intricacies of genre mythmaking from Chinese martial arts films to the horror classics of Val Lewton. O'Brien probes the visionary art of classic filmmakers—von Sternberg, Fod, Cocteau, Kurosawa, Godard—and the implications of such diverse recent work as Farenheit 9/11, The Passion of Christ, and The Sopranos. Each of these pieces is alert to the always–surprising intersections between screen life and real life, and the way that film from the beginning has shaped our sense of memory and history.

Ujjain Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

Praise for Ujjain Steffen Horstmanns book Ujjain is a remarkable collection of Ghazals in Eng-lish. Steffen uses an ancient form of poetry to express the sensibility of a modern day poet, and by doing so, he crosses the boundaries of languages, cultures, and traditions. Agha Shahid Ali couldnt have been more proud of his Shagird Steffen Horstmann, who has kept the torch burning, that he passed on to him after writing Call Me Ishmael Tonight. Kalpna Singh-Chitnis, author of Bare Soul The meditative and sublime states in Steffen Horstmanns radiant collection Ujjain render sonorous arias of cautionary tales for our time-those places of beauty, loss and pain collide into a longing for a vanished world. In these astute ghazals, myth and life and after-life send this poet on a path to claim where the self fits in: Of a world that vanished before I existed. Horstmanns luminous voice guides us to where beauty resides, Through the dark like a train there, These evocations torque into epiphanies rich with awe to light our way-And we are so much richer for this journey. Cynthia Atkins, author of In the Event of Full Disclosure Steffen Horstmann is a worthy student of Agha Shahid Ali in this collection of ghazals which embrace the East and West, as much at ease on Arjunas chariot as among the sacred tombs of Ithaka, or the very real foothills of Qhar. The natural world is incandescent: Bass glisten in rock pools like slick knives / With silver light glinting in their fast shadows, but it is The Diva of Jalsaghar that elegantly soars on melody as Air is scriptured by the syllabic flight / Of the voice of Begum Akhtar. A thoughtful and lyrical collection of ghazals written in English. Dipika Mukherjee, author of Shambala Junction

The Unredeemed Captive Book in PDF, Epub and Kindle

Nominated for the National Book Award and winner of the Francis Parkman Prize. The setting for this haunting and encyclopedically researched work of history is colonial Massachusetts, where English Puritans first endeavoured to "civilize" a "savage" native populace. There, in February 1704, a French and Indian war party descended on the village of Deerfield, abducting a Puritan minister and his children. Although John Williams was eventually released, his daughter horrified the family by staying with her captors and marrying a Mohawk husband. Out of this incident, The Bancroft Prize-winning historian John Devos has constructed a gripping narrative that opens a window into North America where English, French, and Native Americans faced one another across gilfs of culture and belief, and sometimes crossed over.
