The Elsewhere Community, Hugh Kenner
16 Hugh Kenner The Elsewhere Community
Allen & Unwin 241255 Australia 1998 1864488727 / 9781864488722 Softcover Very Good Condition 'This grand tour of books, writers and places both physical and of the mind - conducted by one of the grand critics and teachers of our time - is above all a highly civilised confirmation that, when all is said and done, great literature is the source of profound insights into the unchanging nature of human experience.' Andrew Riemer'.Kenner's book is both a time capsule and eloquent reminiscence. Anyone interested in mid-twentieth century literature and criticism should read it.' Mark Davis'Sunlight unwinds from the pages in this trip of a lifetime. It's On the Road with the best minds of all generations, from Galileo to Bugs Bunny, from cyber seniors to the girl next door. A joyride.' Richard NevilleExile, identity and fantasy were the themes of the Massey Lectures delivered by internationally acclaimed man of letters Hugh Kenner. The Elsewhere Community provocatively examines the idea that Western culture has a constant need for stimulation encountered elsewhere. Kenner traces this trend from the eighteenth century's Grand Tour, wherein young Englishmen travelled Europe before beginning their careers, to the self-imposed exile of modernist writers, to the disembodied global journeys the Internet offers up to us today.Hugh Kenner is the Fuller E. Callaway Professor of English at the University of Georgia. He has published over thirty books, including studies of Ezra pound, Samuel Beckett, James Joyce and Bugs Bunny!Following the success of John Ralston Saul's Massey Lectures The Unconscious Civilization ABC Radio National will broadcast The Elsewhere Community over Christmas 1998. 113 pages.

Prince, Ib Michael
17 Ib Michael Prince
vintage 240836 Great Britain 2001 0099284030 / 9780099284031 Softcover Good Condition It is the summer of 1912 in a fishing village on the Danish coast, where visitors while away the long, light-filled days. For twelve-year-old Malte, it is a summer of freedom and discovery. He roams the beaches and observes the complicated lives of the adults around him. To escape their dramas, he retreats into a fantasy world of his own making, where ships sail to exotic lands. But when one day he trips over a salt-eaten coffin, washed up on the shore, and finds inside the body of a dead sailor, the voice that whispers in Malte's ear starts to take on a life of its own. It tells the secret story of the amber collector who made his fortune combing the beach for sea gold. 245 pages. Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.
