Critical Companion to Arthur Miller

Critical Companion to Arthur Miller

Returning this love, Willy kills himself because this is the only way he can give his
son the money that he sees him needing to be successful ... Death of a Salesman
is a profoundly masculine play, told from a man's point of view (Willy Loman's).

"Pineapple Hands" is the long-awaited volume of poetry and prose by Norwood appliance repairman Warsaw Santiago. With an Introduction and an array of digital collages by Edward Morneau, PH is a fectile and not uncertain accomplishment of art and literature. Using the ancient koan as a framing device, Santiago explores themes as varied as 'Beauty', 'Truth, ' and 'The UPS." Here are a few samples: On Not Knowing One's License Has Expired... The rancorous dog does not forget his rancor When he feasts upon the substance of his daily meal, Yet, grows as a weed in rancor When not reminded of his hunger Because of the rancorous weed. On Happiness... Impossible it is to find joy on the beach of sorrow, With so much sand and not enough time To count on a million laughs. On Authority... Authority's grim, lad- 'Specially when it sits down And thinks. Who knows what's at rest: The mind or the ass? Santiago revisits the myth of "Babel" in his short story, "The Frog Tree"; laughter in Hell with "Puritans Go Swimmin'; and law and the death of the haberdasher in "Attorneys for Larry." Literary critic, Arthur Science writes, "Pineapple hands, if anything, is the answer to all of life's riddles." Morneau's collages complement the mystery of the Polish-Bolivian poet, and while his own obsessions with the rare Monkeymen from the ancient Jungles of Malta may be off putting to airy summer readers, those in the winter of their discontent will love these works. "Lincoln & the Serpent in a Fishtank," "Dragon Flowerhead Johnny," and "Annie Oakley & Rip Van Winkle in No Man's Land" are among the many that will leave you horrified and charmed. Santiago was an excellent repairman for Maytag and Sears, but rails against front loaders, which Morneau explores in his Introduction. As a result, Santiago now lives in exile with the Rolling Stones. Morneau is the author of several books--"Willy Loman, Nosferatu," "Billy Budd, WTF?", and "Teacher on Rye" and has enough Santiago's koans to publish at least seventeen more books of his work.

This student edition of George Orwell's 1984 Focus Study Guide is nearly the same as the teacher edition, except that it does not have the recommended objective assessments, which are normally geared to a district's learning frameworks. The highlights feature fully annotated and in-depth analyses of the following: "Goldstein's Book," Orwell's essays on "Nationalism" and "Politics of the English Language," and Christopher Hitchens' "Why Orwell Matters." Reading comprehension questions and models of essay and research writing mirror the in-depth pursuit of meaning of this great work of literature. General considerations of myth, archetype, satire, nationalism, fascism, essential questions that apply to any work of literature, and complete bibliographies of dystopian literature, film, and graphic novels make this focus guide a complete resource for parallel and further studies.

Why do we watch movies? If we read in search of more life, as Harold Bloom is fond of saying, then we watch movies, this book proposes, in search of wonder. We watch movies in search of awe-inspiring visions, transformative experiences, and moments of emotional transcendence and spiritual sublimity. We watch movies for many of the same reasons that we engage in religion: to fill our ordinary evenings and weekends with something of the extraordinary; to connect our isolated, individual selves to something that is greater than ourselves; and because we yearn for something that is ineffable but absolutely indispensable. This book, through an exploration of some of the most intriguing films of the past two decades, illustrates how movies are partners with religion in inspiring, conveying, and helping us experience what Abraham Joshua Heschel refers to as "radical amazement": the sense that our material universe and our ordinary lives are filled with more wonders than we can ever imagine, and that it takes spiritually—as well as cinematically—trained eyes to uncover these ever-present ocular gems. In addition to illustrating how films utilize religious themes and theological motifs to convey a sense of wonder, this book offers new interpretations of key films from canonical American directors such as Martin Scorsese, Terrence Malick, Richard Linklater, Wes Anderson, and the Coen brothers.

This is a comprehensive sourcebook on the world’s most famous vampire, with more than 700 citations of domestic and international Dracula films, television programs, documentaries, adult features, animated works, and video games, as well as nearly a thousand comic books and stage adaptations. While they vary in length, significance, quality, genre, moral character, country, and format, each of the cited works adopts some form of Bram Stoker’s original creation, and Dracula himself, or a recognizable vampiric semblance of Dracula, appears in each. The book includes contributions from Dacre Stoker, David J. Skal, Laura Helen Marks, Dodd Alley, Mitch Frye, Ian Holt, Robert Eighteen-Bisang, and J. Gordon Melton.
