Paris, widow of Courcier, Large 4to 25 x 20 cm. Why, one might ask, should Sidney's baroque syntax be made simpler and his archaic diction modernized?
Because their complexity and unfamiliarity, after the lapse of some years, has made the work all but unreadable, except by a small and steadily shrinking cohort of scholars. The choice is either pious oblivion or the kind of creative updating we routinely welcome in contemporary productions of Shakespeare. Ross and Davis want to give a new generation of readers access to a literary achievement of surpassing intelligence and beauty. By the sheer quality of its achievement, it created the illusion of separating traditional rhetoric from literature or polite letters.
Emerging out of the small coterie around Sidney's sister Mary, the countess of Pembroke, Sidney's oeuvre reached Shakespeare, who took to new heights the oratory exhibited by the Arcadia's characters in their speeches, debates, and poetry. Sidney's masterpiecerichly deserves the renewed attention of everyone interested in the history of English moral philosophy and the language arts. But statesmanship is exactly what we find in Sidney's Arcadia. It is one reason, along with Sidney's use of humor and suspense, that this compelling story was the most popular work of English narrative prose for over two hundred years.
Modern-day public servants might benefit as Shakespeare did in borrowing widely from Arcadia's lessons on virtue, popular rebellion and the perils of misrule. Daniels, Jr. In it we find the name Pamela, Sidney's invention. Shakespeare read every word. Not himself in the corridors of power as Sidney was, Shakespeare borrowed the way Sidney's prose and poetry expresses strong emotion controlled by thought. Philoclea's bewilderment at her love for Pyrocles becomes Juliet's performance when Romeo appears beneath her balcony.
Sidney's Renaissance romance also offers a surprisingly astute analysis of statesmanship that prefigures Shakespeare's history plays. When Basilius misinterprets an oracle and retreats to his country house, he pursues a cross-dressed Amazon whom his wife also desires. Musidorus and Pyrocles in disguise woo the royal princess Pamela and Philoclea by recounting their attempts to bring justice and stability to foreign countries. The king's envious sister-in-law stirs up dissensions and adds to the misery of her love-sick son Amphialus.
Sidney himself was a courtier and close observer of Queen Elizabeth I. His father was three times governor of Ireland. Readers will find this fable of power, erotic passion, and civic unrest both entertaining and timely. In Portuguese and English. Clara B. Jones in I am not a silent poet , 30 Jan. Ana Cristina Cesar has posthumously become one of Brazil's best known avant-garde poets. After her suicide in , her innovative, mythic, and dreamlike poetry has greatly influenced subsequent generations of writers. At Your Feet was originally published as a poetic sequence and later became part of a longer hybrid work— sometimes prose, sometimes verse—documenting the life and mind of a forcefully active literary woman.
Cesar, who also worked internationally as a journalist and translator, often found inspiration in the writings of other poets, among them Emily Dickinson, Armando Freitas Filho, and Gertrude Stein. At Your Feet includes both the English translation and original Portuguese. Katrina Dodson b. Brenda Hillman b. Hillman serves as the Filippi Professor of Poetry at St. Mary's College of California.

Attitudes includes essays, poems, and a novella, Academy Awards. All are published here for the first time. Ross Winterowd is the Bruce R. He has been leading writing workshops for seniors in Huntington Beach, California, since Augmented Reality: Innovative Perspectives across Art, Industry, and Academia offers a wide-ranging exploration of the implications, challenges, and promises of augmented reality. Traditionally only covered from a technical perspective, augmented reality has become an increasingly important area of cultural inquiry in humanities scholarship and popular media outlets.
This collection attempts to cross-pollinate the discourse, creating a multidisciplinary exchange among leading researchers and professionals who each advance different ways of understanding current and future forms of augmented reality. Another underlying mission is to bring critical reflection and artistic ingenuity into conversation with design thinking and software development. To that end, the collection features a mix of essays from humanities scholars, artworks by pathbreaking artists, as well as interviews with software developers and industry consultants.
Among the first of its kind, the book also incorporates augmented reality into its own design by placing relevant digital content within the printed page using Aurasma. The interviews and the presentation of artworks provide a nice counterpoint to the scholarly articles. The interviews include important figures from the commercial world of AR e.
The art selected includes some of the best known of the admittedly nascent field of AR art, including the work of Tamiko Thiel and B. In sum, this volume does an excellent job of enlarging the space of discourse for Augmented Reality, illustrating the contribution that humanistic and artistic approaches can make to assessing the significance of a new media technology.
I would definitely consider using this collection in various graduate or upper-level undergraduate classes that we teach here at Georgia Tech. Weakland, and Jay Wright. His forthcoming book, Actionable Media Oxford UP, , theorizes a new wave of digital communication emerging in the wake of ubiquitous computing.
Part 2: Interviews Interview 1: Sidney I. Ulmer's fourth book featuring the EmerAgency, an online virtual consultancy for the digital age. This time his point of departure is Paul Virilio's Generalized Accident from which he develops and theorizes the new concepts of Flash Reason, and specifically Avatar, which serves as the site for electrate identity formation in the twenty-first century. I have taught Ulmer's work on electracy for years, and his theoretical sophistication as well as the practical ambition and applicability of his work never ceases to amaze me.
Ulmer advances a ratio: "Avatar is to electracy what 'self' is to literacy, or 'spirit' to orality. Their own wisdom. After all, he explains: "Concept avatar must be not only understood, but undergone. Gregory L. Preface 1. Prudence 2. Concept 3. Joke 4. Descent 5. Moment 6. Memory 7. Measure 8. Enjoyment 9. Letter Frog Hegemony Counsel In her early career, Kang Eun-Gyo marked nihilism as the departure of her poetic imagination. In response to the turmoil of the world and modern Korean history full of violence and violations of human rights, the poet struggled to build her poetry in a house of nothingness.
On lonely nights, I keep on writing down a blue address. Kneeling, I keep on writing. Putting dawn on my back to send it to sleep, I keep on writing. I mail it in an afternoon post office. Really, there are so many windows in the post office. Bent births pop in and out, fall over. Bent corpses pop in and out, fall over Pages of writing paper are screaming. Screaming to open the bodies of bent addresses. I also scream and scream. Scream and scream, again and again. I scream as I mail off my heart. I scream as I become a window. I soar up. Flapping, flapping. Framed by historic developments—from the Open Admissions movement of the s and s to the attacks on remediation that intensified in the s and beyond— Basic Writing traces the arc of these large social and cultural forces as they have shaped and reshaped the field.
George Otte and Rebecca Williams Mlynarczyk balance fidelity to the past with present relevance, local concerns with presumptively global knowledge, personal judgment with apparent objectivity. Basic Writing circles back on the same general story, looking for different themes or seeing the same themes from different perspectives. What emerges is a gestalt of Basic Writing that will give readers interested in its history, self-definition, pedagogy, or research a sense of the important trends and patterns.

Beyond Argument: Essaying as a Practice of Ex Change offers an in-depth examination of how current ways of thinking about the writer-page relation in personal essays can be reconceived according to practices in the "care of the self" — an ethic by which writers such as Seneca, Montaigne, and Nietzsche lived.
This approach promises to revitalize the form and address many of the concerns expressed by essay scholars and writers regarding the lack of rigorous exploration we see in our students' personal essays — and sometimes, even, in our own. In pursuing this approach, Sarah Allen presents a version of subjectivity that enables productive debate in the essay, among essays, and beyond.
Her scholarship generally explores the ethics of the personal essay, and this work informs her teaching, as she works to discover the most useful and effective ways of assisting students in engaging with difficult, dense material and in generating complex, rigorous writings of their own.
How closely can or should writing centers and writing classrooms collaborate? Beyond Dichotomy explores how research on peer tutoring one-to-one and in small groups can inform our work with students in writing centers and other tutoring programs, as well as in writing courses and classrooms. These multi-method including rhetorical and discourse analyses and ethnographic and case-study investigations center on several course-based tutoring CBT partnerships at two universities. Rather than practice separately in the center or in the classroom, rather than seeing teacher here and tutor there and student over there, CBT asks all participants in the dynamic drama of teaching and learning to consider the many possible means of connecting synergistically.
Steven J. Hyoejin Yoon. To which I call out: "Oh, right, who exactly? The corridor is long, dog-legging at half way. I have no idea which episode, and, even though I've seen them all more than once, I can't seem to get interested in thinking about it. The low-pile carpeting is allowing me to glide effortlessly and silently over it, while not forgetting to shoot each one of the apartment doors so that the threatening notion that one of them could open at any minute and reveal. Camera Phone is a novel of cell phones and films—with some fabulous, low-cost recipes and recommendations for further reading.

Available November 1, Woven throughout the book, along with a series of Parables as if excerpted from her teachings, is the legendary figure of Mary Magdalene, as painted by Giotto and re-imagined as a teacher of embodied spiritual and intellectual practice. Some canticles are lyric improvisations quick with rhyme, allusion, and wordplay. Others are meditative investigations of darkness, pleasure, cruelty, or joy. All are acts of fierce attention to language, the musical possibilities of the lyric line, and the natural world, built and unbuilt.
With Canticle of the Night Path , Jennifer Atkinson sets in motion a deeply compelling sequence of praise songs. Whether their origins are remote in time or close to hand, the objects of her praise become intricately connected as each is illuminated in turn--by electric light, by candle-light, by lightning. She models a patient attention that gives way to sudden insights and the reader is transported by the clarity and music of her forms. Understanding this important rhetorical tradition provides a strong foundation for assessing and responding to the writing of this growing group of students.

Such histories, particularly in the s and s divorced the field from activist politics—washing out such work in the name of disciplinary identity. Class Politics shows the importance of political mass movements in the formation of Composition Studies—particularly Civil Rights and Black Power.
Class Politics also critiques how the field appropriates these movements. Fontaine and Steve Westbrook.

Stenberg shows how feminist scholars have made Composition Studies a more inclusive and innovative field.
Composition Studies Through a Feminist Lens then moves feminist knowledge to the center, showing how feminist scholars have revised these stories to offer a more expansive approach to the purposes and processes of writing and rhetoric. Part one features feminist expansions of rhetoric, showcasing how feminist scholars have revised the traditional values and practices of classical rhetoric that shape contemporary ideas about argument and writing.
Part two shifts to the composition classroom, showing how feminists have revised the role of student, teacher, and researcher. Students will gain a sense of how feminist contributions have expanded possibilities for learning and writing in the composition classroom. Shari J.

A darkly humorous exploration of the human body and its various functions in poetic prose, Valerio Magrelli's personal chronicle of clinical experience catalogues a life history of ailments without ever being pathological.
Every sensation and malfunction is placed under the subjective microscope of the poet's eye and examined in excruciating and obsessive detail. This Gray's Anatomy of the soul leads the reader on an inside-out voyage of discovery, with many surprises on the way. One of Italy's most celebrated living poets, Valerio Magrelli has also attracted an international following.
Molino's translations of Valerio Magrelli's poetry bring to English-speaking readers some of the most astounding verse to be found in contemporary Italian letters. Here, a great deal of precious cargo has made it intact to the shores of the English-speaking world, and we are enriched by the arrival of such rich, strange, and new matter. I used to read a great many Italian poets.
Nowhere near as many in recent years—though I've seen things by a young poet that I like very much. His name is Magrelli. His poetry is a soliloquy written with a pencil and a small note-book, during the latest and most silent hours of the night. It's a poetry that looks at itself, but at the sight of its thought, vanishes. Magrelli's poems make me feel good because they are so smart. Aphoristic and quirky, they seem from another millennium. I eat them up like clusters of grapes, and when I'm done I want more.
I love their wry modesty, their strange truisms, and their beautiful succinctness. Valerio Magrelli. In the good-natured ease with which he shows off his mastery of the traditional tools of his trade, and the elegant way he lets the reader know he knows that writing is about writing, he advertises his membership in an international con-fraternity whose current English-language practitioners include Mark Strand and, especially, Paul Muldoon.
Magrelli, a scholar of French literature and an experienced translator, is obsessed by the "translation" involved in all writing, and thus by language games that reveal the complex inner life of words. Language itself is, naturally, one of this poet's prime subjects; Dante, he tells us, in a typically cheeky, inspired acrostic, is the "DNA of poETry," and the structure of his terza rima is the literary double-helix that contains "the future of the mother tongue" in the same way that the ur-poet's name magically incorporates life's ultimate building block.
I know of no other Italian poet today who writes with such a capacious grasp of the enormous, still-to-be-discovered potentialities of the great treasure-house of Italian. Here is a writer whose energy and gifts open a doorway onto an expansive future. Valerio Magrelli Rome, is the author of six poetry collections, for which he has won among other prizes the Mondello, the Viareggio, the Montale and the Premio Antonio Feltrinelli-Accademia dei Lincei: Ora serrata retinae Feltrinelli, , Nature e venature Mondadori, , Esercizi di tiptologia Mondadori, , Didascalie per la lettura di un giornale Einaudi, , and Disturbi del sistema binario Einaudi, , and Il sangue amaro Einaudi, He has published four books of prose: Nel condominio di carne Einaudi , La vicevita.

Timothy Richardson takes up the rabbinic position to demonstrate how traditional Greco-Christian rhetoric might be insufficient to account for what we now mean by rhetoric as a discipline.
He argues that rhetoric as an academic discipline is different from philosophy insofar as it takes as its object the missing cause of performance, of writing, of inquiry itself inherent in the contingency of their status as events. He is Associate Professor of English at the University of Texas at Arlington, where he teaches courses in antique and contemporary rhetorics, psychoanalytic theory, media studies, and writing. The closer we get, the more vivid the confusion is.
And this is the case regarding not only our handle on consciousness, but also the one we have on identity and even on reality itself, both of which depend upon consciousness—and all three of which, ultimately, prove more malleable than we might care to admit. In Contrapuntal, an enormously ambitious and masterful debut, Christopher Kondrich has shaped this material into a work of such inventiveness, wit, wisdom, bravura, tenderness and beauty, it leaves me in awe. Or rather, it brings me back to a level of awe I had forgotten I had access to, restoring to their original size my hopes for what a book of poetry might accomplish.
I am inordinately grateful for this book. This is a book that needs to be known. He lives in Denver. The editors of Copy write : Intellectual Property in the Writing Classroom bring together stories, theories, and research that can further inform the ways in which we situate and address intellectual property issues in our writing classrooms.

Martine Courant Rife , JD, PhD, is a professor of writing at Lansing Community College, where she teaches courses in digital authorship, technical and business writing, and first-year composition. Rife received the Frank R. The rendering of the poems is flawless, so much so that they have an extraordinary perceptual and tonal range.
But that only tells part of the story. He seems to have traveled to different countries—Spain, New Jersey, and Nevada--and recognized that all of them are foreign. Ghosts and ghostly voices rise up from the ground. Without falling into some obvious pattern or strategy, Capozzi puts words together that sound as if they have been connubial all along. What continues to astonish me long after reading this book is the fact that not a single moment in any one poem is predictable.
Michener Fellowship. Edited by Michael Donnelly, Rebecca Ingalls, Tracy Ann Morse, Joanna Castner Post, and Anne Meade Stockdell-Giesler, Critical Conversations About Plagiarism instead invites students and teachers to engage in deep, critical discussions about a complicated topic in ways that are both accessible and intellectually challenging. The essays address a range of complex, interrelated ideas, concepts, and issues: theories about knowledge creation and ideas about authorship; issues of collaboration, borrowing, remixing, and plagiarism; copyright and intellectual property; historical constructions of authorship; student and teacher identities and roles; cross-cultural perspectives on plagiarism; and the impact of new technologies.
Critical Conversations About Plagiarism makes such discussions accessible to undergraduate and graduate students, and, at the same time, it provides teachers with tools for facilitating those conversations. Michael Donnelly is Assistant Professor of English at Ball State University, where he teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in rhetoric and writing. Anne Meade Stockdell-Giesler formerly taught at Boston University and the University of Tampa and now works independently as an editor, writer, and copyeditor.
Part II. Part III. Critical Expressivism: Theory and Practice in the Composition Classroom is an ambitious attempt to re-appropriate intellectual territory that has more often been charted by its detractors than by its proponents. Indeed, as Peter Elbow observes in his contribution to this volume, "As far as I can tell, the term 'expressivist' was coined and used only by people who wanted a word for people they disapproved of and wanted to discredit.
John's University. Her research focuses on feminist theory and women's memoir; non-oedipal psychoanalytic theory and pedagogy; and queer theory and pedagogy. She earned her doctorate in composition and rhetoric at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in Cross-Border Networks in Writing Studie s coordinates mixed methods approaches to survey, interview, and case study data to study Canadian writing studies scholars.
The authors argue for networked disciplinarity, the notion that ideas arise and flow through intellectual networks that connect scholars not only to one another but to widening networks of human and nonhuman actors. Although the Canadian field is historically rooted in the themes of location and national culture, expressing a tension between Canadian independence and dependence on the US field, more recent research suggests a more hybridized North American scholarship rather than one defined in opposition to "rhetoric and composition" in the US.
In tracing identities, roles, and rituals of nationally bound considerations of how disciplinarity has been constructed through distant and close methods, this multi-scaled, multi-scopic approach examines the texture of interdependent constructions of the Canadian discipline. Lisa Fishman's Current follows The Happiness Experiment Ahsahta, further into an experience of time as theater, weather, myth, insect body, plantlife, transcription, synchrony, and figment. Her poems are pressed into argument and song by means of attention to the moment and to cross-currents of making, of music, over time.
Current enacts a poetics of the uncanny in very close touch with the actual, creating a field of vibrations in which the possibilities and limitations of vision and art collide and change.

She is the author of three earlier books of poetry and most recently the chapbook, at the same time as scattering Albion Books. Ian Brinton. Tears in the Fence. Simon Smith's series of poetry journals is a plate of spinning, stunning experience. With his renowned poetic skill, Smith quietly and carefully shifts from the panoramic into the still frame of the inner life with its familiar daily worries. It's a delicious journey. For these writers, the ordinary becomes the exotic.
Their responses might be like those of a Martial transported from Spain to the Roman capital, with an outsider's ability to detect the fine or gross echoes of Empire amid the detritus. Simon Smith joins these ranks. He is a Paul Blackburn for the information age. Simon Smith's work continues to be an essential reminder of the possibilities of poetry in the present moment.
Day In, Day Out serves up quickly paced journal poems bursting with the details of the everyday life of travel, transience, and self-imposed displacement. Ghosted by his recently deceased father and Paul Blackburn's own journal poetry, Smith generously tells "everything I know" about time, impermanence, and the ordinary scintilla of the moment grasped as at once fleeting and overwhelmingly real.
The devil—and the divine—is in the details. Each poem is in the moment of its detail and the materiality of its experience, which only these foreign eyes passing through and about and around those distant places can realise. Its pacing is breakneck and nonchalant, hysterical and insouciant, blurred, with a pin-sharp focus. This is poetry fully alive to its particular time and place, steeped in the precision of its perceptions and the act of perceiving.
This is a book that telescopes the long-distance of the past into the talismanic immediate, articulating and attending to particularity over generality in the process. It is a book that explores and interrogates the world by plane rather than road, tips straight ahead, attuned to attention itself. Simon Smith has published five collections of poetry.
He holds a PhD from the University of Glasgow. Sunset Blvd.
The Work of José Régio
Information and Pricing ! Dear Reader is that essential intimate epistle that comes to us in an hour of great need. It offers no answers but rather reminds us of our fundamental questions. Meticulous and measured, richly working a system of resonant recurring tropes, this sequence of sonnets give us the voice of one particular sensibility—in turns tender, earnest, honest, intelligent, witty, and wry—as it reaches out across a divide it knows cannot be crossed by language and reason alone.
