Mişima'nın, "Yaşayan en büyük Japon yazarlarından biri," dediği Kenzaburo Oe, kitaba adını veren "Kurbanı Beslemek" adlı uzun öyküsünde en sıradan ve masum insanın nasıl bir canavara dönüşebileceğini, salt mimiklerle bile ırkçılığın nasıl usul usul beslenebileceğini anlatır. Can Yayınları'nın geçmişte üç ayrı kitap olarak yayımladığı Kurbanı Beslemek, Delilikten Kurtar Bizi ve Gözyaşlarımı Sileceği Gün adlı bu üç uzun öyküsünde Oe, çağdaş dünyanın uğraştığı en sıkıcı insani sorunları yüksek bir edebî başarıyla anlatıyor. Özgün dilinden yeniden çevrilen bu üç uzun öykü bu kez bir arada yayımlanıyor. Kurbanı Beslemek (Shiiku) : 1957 Delilikten Kurtar Bizi (Warera no kyōki wo ikinobiru michi wo oshieyo): 1969 Gözyaşlarımı Sileceği Gün (Mizukara waga namida wo nuguitamau hi): 1972
When he died he feared he had been forgotten... …He was dead wrong! Bela Lugosi is considered one of the greatest actors of the twentieth-century... but you'd never know it based upon the way he was treated by the Hollywood executives he worked for. Shut out, ignored, and hideously underpaid, he could have easily given up, walked away from show business, and no one would have blamed him for doing so.
But he didn't. Now a body of his work exists that is celebrated decades after his death... because he worked hard and never gave up. Bela Lugosi persevered in the face of tremendous adversity. Can Bela's story inspire you to keep going in your quest to make the world a better place? In Reign of the Vampire: A Tribute to the Perseverance of Bela Lugosi, Leo Wiltshire (M.
A. in Organizational Leadership) examines the struggles and triumphs of Lugosi's life in order to flesh out one of the most inspirational tales of determination ever told.
What’s really happening behind closed doors on America’s college campuses? A new sexual revolution is sweeping the country, and college students are on the front lines. Women use fresh, smart methods to fight entrenched sexism and sexual assault even as they celebrate their own sexuality as never before.
Many “woke” male students are more sensitive to women’s concerns than previous generations ever were, while other men perpetuate the most cruel misogyny. Amid such apparent contradictions, it’s no surprise that intense confusion shrouds the topic of sex on campus. Vanessa Grigoriadis dispels that confusion as no other writer could by traveling to schools large and small, embedding in their social whirl, and talking candidly with dozens of students – among them, both accusers and accused-- as well as administrators, parents, and researchers.
Her unprecedented investigation presents a host of new truths. She reveals which times and settings are most dangerous for women (for instance, beware the “red zone”); she demystifies the welter of conflicting statistics about the prevalence of campus rape; she makes a strong case that not all “sexual assault” is equivalent; and she offers convincing if controversial advice on how schools, students, and parents can make college a safer, richer experience. The sum of her fascinating, fly-on-the-wall reportage is a revelatory account of how long-standing rules of sex and power are being rewritten from scratch.
Compiled with the aid of Five Years back issues of DONALD PARSNIPS DAILY JOURNAL, a breeze borne pamphlet and art-object that seeks to place ’encounter’ into contemporary ’mediation,’ AN A TO Z FOR THE EFFECTIVE USE OF YOUR CITY draws on the experience of The Daily Journal in content method and experience so as to impart various unorthodox methods for immediate use by the urban individual in the viewing of interacting with and relating to, their city. There is nothing new in this except in the proposition that such a book taking such a form may exist as a staple of democratisation, alongside the tour guide, map, telephone directory, listings magazine, planning office plannchest, and book review column in local and international newspapers.
