Book Short Summary:

Contribute to the Birth of a New Consciousness! We usually base our perception of reality on what our five senses receive, particularly sight. The majority of people believe that our visual interpretation of the world is real. However, the world we live in actually consists of many different worlds, most of which are invisible for us. All these worlds are part of Gaia and make up the reality we live in. This book contains dialogues with the Sidhe, a race of human-like beings who are our direct relatives. They are invisible to our five senses and occupy one of the subtle worlds that are an integrated part of Gaia. In the discourses presented in this book, the Sidhe and the author share how they view their respective worlds. Exploring the similarities and differences between our worlds can help us to see our human world in a different perspective. The Sidhe also share aspects of the subtle worlds that we are part of but are hardly aware of. The dialogues help the Sidhe and us to see our respective gifts and self-induced limitations. These conversations strongly invite us to look at ourselves and indicate the need for a more-inclusive, more-expanded new consciousness. By collaborating with the Sidhe and other beings from the subtle realms, such as nature spirits and unicorns, this new consciousness can be created and a new world can be born. To achieve this, we need to raise our vibrations and expand our views of reality. This book invites you to embark on a journey. This journey is actually the journey of every soul who comes to Earth. The book stimulates you to raise your vibration and expand your view of reality by giving many suggestions how to do so. It truly can be called the start of a new consciousness.

Book Short Summary:

Whether one describes them as sequential art, graphic narratives or graphic novels, comics have become a vital part of contemporary culture. Their range of expression contains a tremendous variety of forms, genres and modes − from high to low, from serial entertainment for children to complex works of art. This has led to a growing interest in comics as a field of scholarly analysis, as comics studies has established itself as a major branch of criticism. This handbook combines a systematic survey of theories and concepts developed in the field alongside an overview of the most important contexts and themes and a wealth of close readings of seminal works and authors. It will prove to be an indispensable handbook for a large readership, ranging from researchers and instructors to students and anyone else with a general interest in this fascinating medium.

  • Pdf File: burroughs-unbound.pdf

Book Short Summary:

In addition to contributing significantly to the growing field of Burroughs scholarship, Burroughs Unbound also directly engages with the growing fields of textual studies, archival research, and genetic criticism, asking crucial questions thereby about the nature of archives and their relationship to a writer's work. These questions about the archive concern not only the literary medium. In the 1960s and 1970s Burroughs collaborated with filmmakers, sound technicians, and musicians, who helped re-contextualized his writings in other media. Burroughs Unbound examines these collaborations and explores how such multiple authorship complicates the authority of the archive as a final or complete repository of an author's work. It takes Burroughs seriously as a radical theorist and practitioner who critiqued drug laws, sexual practice, censorship, and what we today call a society of control. More broadly, his work continues to challenge our common assumptions about language, authorship, textual stability, and the archive in its broadest definition.

Book Short Summary:

The comic book has become an essential icon of the American Century, an era defined by optimism in the face of change and by recognition of the intrinsic value of democracy and modernization. For many, the Middle Ages stand as an antithesis to these ideals, and yet medievalist comics have emerged and endured, even thrived alongside their superhero counterparts. Chris Bishop presents a reception history of medievalist comics, setting them against a greater backdrop of modern American history. From its genesis in the 1930s to the present, Bishop surveys the medievalist comic, its stories, characters, settings, and themes drawn from the European Middle Ages. Hal Foster's Prince Valiant emerged from an America at odds with monarchy, but still in love with King Arthur. Green Arrow remains the continuation of a long fascination with Robin Hood that has become as central to the American identity as it was to the British. The Mighty Thor reflects the legacy of Germanic migration into the United States. The rugged individualism of Conan the Barbarian owes more to the western cowboy than it does to the continental knight-errant. In the narrative of Red Sonja, we can trace a parallel history of feminism. Bishop regards these comics as not merely happenchance, but each success (Prince Valiant and The Mighty Thor) or failure (Beowulf: Dragon Slayer) as a result and an indicator of certain American preoccupations amid a larger cultural context. Intrinsically modernist paragons of pop-culture ephemera, American comics have ironically continued to engage with the European Middle Ages. Bishop illuminates some of the ways in which we use an imagined past to navigate the present and plots some possible futures as we valiantly shape a new century.
