Other essays examine how Cisneros uses the novel to cross the boundaries of gender, class, language, and genres.
Working Words by M L LieblerFrom $7.25
Poets, rock stars, filmmakers, activists, novelists, and historians lend their voices to this landmark collection about the daily grind."M. L. Liebler is the poet laureate of America's working class. The collection he has assembled rings out with truth, intensity, and love. In a world full of despair, it is comforting to have writers so gifted and generous singing our song of rebellion and hope. This book is the kind of spark we need these days---a rich, intense, and inspiring collection for and about those who get their hands dirty every single day."---Michael Moore"This book is not `fresh air.' It is a mighty wind. While the nightly news continues to `do the numbers,' as if we were all investors, here's the larger part---the real grit and savor of American life. Spelled out in plain English."---Peter Coyote"About a hundred years ago Alexander Berkman told Meridel LeSeuer to `write the stories of the people.' M. L. Liebler continues this worthy tradition and ups the ante considerably with this terrific collection of working-class poetry, song, and story. Howard Zinn would have loved this book, and I do too!"---Anne Feeney"In a moment of moral crisis in these United States, M. L. Liebler has performed a genuine act of public service. His collection reflects the true working ethos of this nation. . . . These stories, songs, and poems aren't relics, but rise off the pages like living things."---Joe HenryA Collection About Living While Barely Making One, about layoffs and picket lines, about farmers, butchers, miners, waitresses, assembly-line workers, and the "Groundskeeper Busted Reading in the Custodial Water Closet." this is literature by the people and for the people.From the White Stripes's "The Big Three Killed My Baby" to Eminem's "Lose Yourself"; from the folk a

The Pocket Oracle and Art of Prudence by Baltasar GracianFrom $7.95
'No one is born complete; perfect yourself and your activities day by day until you become a truly consummate being, your talents and your qualities all perfected'Written over 350 years ago, The Pocket Oracle and Art of Prudence is a subtle collection of 300 witty and thought-provoking aphorisms. From the art of being lucky to the healthy use of caution, these elegant maxims were created as a guide to life, with further suggestions given on cultivating good taste, knowing how to refuse, the foolishness of complaining and the wisdom of controlling one's passions. Baltasar Gracian intended these ingenious, pragmatic aphorisms to challenge the mind, and recognised that few would be capable of applying them.In Jeremy Robbins's introduction to his penetrating new translation, he examines Gracian's place in Spanish literature and his previous works. Robbins also looks at the themes, contexts and contradictions of The Pocket Oracle, as well as the brevity and subtlety of Gracian's cool-headed aphorisms. This edition also contains a chronology, suggested further reading and notes.Translated with an introduction and notes by JEREMY ROBBINSAbout The AuthorBaltasar Gracian was born in 1601 in Belmonte, Aragon and entered the Society of Jesus in 1619. Teaching in Jesuit colleges across the Kingdom of Aragon, he was also at one time confessor to the viceroy of Aragon and chaplain to the Spanish army. But it is as one of the great Spanish stylists and moralists that he is best known. He wrote a series of short moral tracts marked by their elliptical, epigrammatic style, as well as a three volume allegorical novel, The Critic (1651-57). Published in 1647, The Pocket Oracle and Art of Prudence influenced the vogue for the form in France, and was quickly translated into the major European languages. Jeremy Robbins is Forbes Professor of Hispanic Studies at the

Songs of the Doomed by Hunter S. ThompsonFrom $10.25
'I was thinking; my mind was running at top speed, scanning and sorting my options. They ranged all the way from Dumb and Dangerous to Crazy, Evil, and utterly wrong from the start... stand back. We are on the brink. Yes. I have an idea.' When Hunter S. Thompson has an idea, you just have to listen - and he shares many of his unique ideas in this collection of journalism, social commentary, short fiction and autobiography. Divided into sections by decade, Songs of the Doomed begins with a furious condemnation of the US justice system and ends with the author's own version of the events that led to his extraordinary court case. Stopping off at the infamous summit conference in Elko, Illinois; Saigon in 1975 (the war zone Thompson was fired while en route to); and Palm Beach in the eighties for the Pulitzer divorce, here - in true Gonzo fashion - is the long strange trip from Kennedy to Nixon to Quayle. About the Author Hunter S. Thompson (1937-2005) was an American journalist widely regarded as the father of gonzo journalism.
Mark Twain and the Novel by Lawrence HoweFrom $271.95
Mark Twain was an author both drawn to and suspicious of authority, and his novels reflect this tension. Marked by disruptions, repetitions, and contradictions, they exemplify the ideological standoff between the American ideal of individual freedom and the reality of social control. This book provides a fresh look at Twain's major novels such as Life on the Mississippi, Huckleberry Finn, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. The difficulties in these works are shown to be neither flaws nor failures, but rather intrinsic to both the structure of the American novel and the texture of American culture.
H. D. and the Victorian Fin de Siecle by Cassandra LaityFrom $271.95
H. D and the Victorian Fin de Siecle argues foremost that H. D. eluded the male modernist flight from Romantic 'effeminacy' and 'personality' by embracing the very cults of personality in the Decadent Romanticism of Oscar Wilde, A. C. Swinburne, Walter Pater and D. G. Rossetti that her male contemporaries most deplored: the cult of the demonic femme fatale and of the 'effeminate' Aesthete androgyne. H. D., Laity maintains, used these sexually aggressive masks to shape a female modernism that freely engaged female and male androgyny, homoeroticism, narcissism and maternal eroticism. Focusing on the early Sea Garden , the plays and poetry of the 1920s and her late epic Trilogy, H. D. and the Victorian Fin de Siecle demonstrates H. D.'s shift from the homoerotic 'white', vanishing tropology of the male androgyne fashioned by Pater and Wilde to the 'abject' monstrously sexual body of the Pre-Raphaelite and Decadent femme fatale.
Modernism and Time by Ronald SchleiferFrom $287.4
In Modernism and Time, Ronald Schleifer analyses the transition from the Enlightenment to post-Enlightenment ways of understanding in Western thought. Schleifer argues that this transition in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century expresses itself centrally in an altered conception of temporality. He examines this period's remarkable breaks with the past in literature, music, and the arts more generally. Whereas Enlightenment thought sees time as a homogenous, neutral medium, in which events and actions take place, post-Enlightenment thought sees time as discontinuous and inexorably bound up with both the subjects and events that seem to inhabit it. This fundamental change of perception, Schleifer argues, takes place across disciplines as varied as physics, economics and philosophy. Schleifer's study engages with the work of writers and thinkers as varied as George Eliot, Walter Benjamin, Einstein and Russell, and offers a powerful reassessment of the politics and culture of modernism.
