Description:
The spearhead of a new poetic movement in the late republic, Catullus wrote verse whose direct and passionate language often cloaked a complex personality and a gift for synthesizing the earlier traditions of Roman poetry, and in particular for introducing a startlingly powerful force into the recently developed love epigram. A master of colloquial language and of grandeur heightened by realism, and a poet with astute psychological perception, he was above all a lyricist and one whose unique style is captured will in this translation by Peter Whigham, who also wrote the introduction.

Description:
At a small gallery in Florence, a Peruvian writer stares with fascination at the photograph of a tribal storyteller deep in the jungles of the Amazon. He is overcome with the eerie sense that he knows this man...that the storyteller is not an Indian at all, but his old friend, Saul Zuratas. As recollections of Zuratas - a jew, a perpetual outsider - flow through his mind, the writer begins to imagine Zuratas' transformation from a modern man to a central member, the voice and the chronicler, of the primitive unacculturated Machiguenga tribe.Translated by Helen Lane.

Description:
'What's most surprising about the book is Vargas Llosa's remarkably straightforward investigation of the autobiographical material that served as the genesis of his novels. Without being coy or ironic, and without any apparent fear of demystifying or deglamorize his work, he puts forth his best recollections of how something that happened to him became raw material for his fiction...For anyone interested in Latin American literature, A Writer's Reality is indispensable.'

Deep within the remote backlands of 19th century Brazil lies Canudos, home to all the damned of the earth: prostitutes, bandits, beggars, and every kind of outcast. Itis a place where history and civilization have been wiped away. There is no money, no taxation, no marriage, no census. Canudos is a cauldron for the revolutionary spirit in its purest form, a state with all the potential for a true, libertarian paradise - and one the Brzailian government is determined to crush at any cost.

Sound clean copy read once. Order direct for local pick up. On a freezing night in January 1941, a little Jewish girl is found in Bucharest. With Romania recently allied with the Nazis, leaving the Jewish population vulnerable to persecution, the girl is whisked away to an orphanage, until she's adopted by a wealthy childless couple who name her Natalia. Soon, she all but forget the parents who were forced to abandon her. Many years later in Soviet Romania, Natalia crosses path with Victor - a face from her past, now an important official in the Communist regime. They're fatefully drawn into a passionate affair, despite the dark secrets Victor keeps. When Natalia is suddenly offered a onetime chance at freedom, Victor is determined to help her, even if it means losing her. Matalia must then make an agonizing decision: remain in Bucharest with Victor and her beloved adoptive parents, or seize the chance to live life on her own terms - and to confront the painful enigma of her past.

Description:
Sound clean unread copy. The knowledge and vision of the Buddha is just your own mind; there is no other Buddha. Such is the teaching of Master Huineng (638 713), the most important and most revered figure in the Chan (Zen) School of East Asian Buddhism. Huineng left no written record, but his students compiled accounts of his public lectures and one-on-one exchanges, together with the dramatic story of his life. The resulting volume was Liu zu fa bao tan jing , The Sixth Patriarch's Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra, sixth, because Master Huineng is counted as the sixth generation of patriarchal succession from the first Chan patriarch Bodhidharma. Master Huineng's Platform Sutra is so highly regarded in Buddhist Asia that it is called a Sutra, a term otherwise reserved for texts spoken by the Buddha himself. In presenting this entirely new English translation of The Sixth Patriarch's Dharma Jewel Platform Sutra, the editors, Professors Heng Sure and Martin Verhoeven of Dharma Realm Buddhist University,… Read More

With exercises, worksheets, and the latest in dream research, this book offers a new way to understanding yourself and your creative work.
