Too Much and Not the Mood: Essays

Durga Chew-Bose

Too Much and Not the Mood: Essays by Durga Chew-Bose

One of Vulture's "25 of the Most Exciting Book Releases for 2017"

One of Nylon's "50 Books We Can't Wait To Read In 2017"

An entirely original portrait of a young writer shutting out the din in order to find her own voice

On April 11, 1931, Virginia Woolf ended her entry in A Writer's Diary with the words "too much and not the mood." She was describing how tired she was of correcting her own writing, of the "cramming in and the cutting out" to please other readers, wondering if she had anything at all that was truly worth saying.

The character of that sentiment, the attitude of it, inspired Durga...

Scotland and Poland: Historical Encounters, 1500-2010

Tom Devine & David Hesse

Scotland and Poland: Historical Encounters, 1500-2010 by Tom Devine & David HesseThis collection of essays explores more than five centuries of Scottish-Polish interactions.

The latter period includes the Polish military presence in Scotland during World War II and the new Polish migration to Scotland after Poland's accession to the European Union in 2004. The book will be of interest to students and researchers who...

Idle Talk under the Bean Arbor: A Seventeenth-Century Chinese Story Collection

Aina the Layman & Ziran the Eccentric Wanderer

Idle Talk under the Bean Arbor: A Seventeenth-Century Chinese Story Collection by Aina the Layman & Ziran the Eccentric Wanderer

Written around 1660, the unique Chinese short story collection Idle Talk under the Bean Arbor (Doupeng xianhua), by the author known only as Aina the Layman, uses the seemingly innocuous setting of neighbors swapping yarns on hot summer days under a shady arbor to create a series of stories that embody deep disillusionment with traditional values. The tales, ostensibly told by different narrators, parody heroic legends and explore issues that contributed to the fall of the Ming dynasty a couple of decades before this collection was written, including self-centeredness and social violence. These...

Routledge Revivals: The Song Celestial or Bhagavad-Gita (1906): From the Mahabharata

NoContributor

Routledge Revivals: The Song Celestial or Bhagavad-Gita (1906): From the Mahabharata by NoContributor

First published in 1909, this book presents an English translation of chapters 25-42 of the Bhishma Parva from the epic Sanskrit poem Mahabharata - better known as the Bhagavad-Gita, reckoned as one of the "Five Jewels" of Devanagari literature. The plot consists of a dialogue between Prince Arjuna and Krishna, the Supreme Deity, in a war-chariot prior to a great battle. The conversation that takes place unfolds a philosophical system which remains the prevailing Brahmanic belief, blending the doctrines of Kapila, Patanjali, and the Vedas. Building on a number of preceding translations, this...

This Young Monster

Charlie Fox

This Young Monster by Charlie FoxThis Young Monster is a hallucinatory celebration of artists who raise hell, transform their bodies, anger their elders and show their audience dark, disturbing things. What does it mean to be a freak? Why might we be wise to think of the present as a time of monstrosity? And how does the concept of the monster irradiate our thinking about queerness, disability, children and adolescents? From TWIN PEAKS to Leigh Bowery, Harmony Korine to Alice in Wonderland, This Young Monster gets high on a whole range of riotous art as its voice and form shape-shift, all in the name of dealing with the strange...

It was also an opportunity to create literary friendships and contacts between these two great regions. Generally, Latin America and Africa still have a lot of stories to share among themselves and with the rest of the world. There are still very strong untapped storytelling traditions in these continents. The stories in this volume are selected...
