"The World's Wife is a joyous exuberant book of poems about women usually excluded from myth and history." --GuardianWith an introduction by Jeanette Winterson. This unique collection of poems from the Poet Laureate, filled with her characteristic wit, is a feminist classic and a modern take on age-old mythology. Behind every famous man is a great woman - and from the quick-tongued Mrs Darwin to the lascivious Frau Freud, from the adoring Queen Kong to the long-suffering wife of the Devil himself, each one steps from her counterpart's shadow to tell her side of the story in this irresistible collection. Original, subversive, full of imagination and quicksilver wit, The World's Wife is Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy at her beguiling best.

Logics of Worlds is the sequel to Alain Badiou's masterpiece, Being and Event. Tackling the questions that had been left open by Being and Event, and answering many of his critics in the process, Badiou supplements his pioneering treatment of multiple being with a daring and complex theory of the worlds in which truths and subjects make their mark - what he calls a materialist dialectic. Drawing on his most ambitious philosophical predecessors - Leibniz, Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard, Lacan, Deleuze – Badiou ends this important later work with an impassioned call to 'live for an Idea'.

Description: Ramprasad Sen was bornin the second decade of the eighteenth century in Halishahar in (then) Bengal.He was a great saint in Shakta cult. But, he was also a natural poet andcomposer. The songs presented in this book are hymns to Goddess Mother Kali couched in rustic words andsymbols of everyday life. Yet, most of this symbolism is a rare mosaic ofthe occult mystery of Tantra shastra and carry a double meaning. Thus, flyingkites, the blind kites, the blind ox trudging routine endless circles of thevillage oil-machine (ghaani), the small town courtroom, the sailing craft oflife - are all symbols of the highest mystic Shakta worship of Goddess Durga orKali (Mahashakti). The English rendering aims to echo the nuances of theoriginal in its threefold uniqueness: simplicity and rustic symbols, their inner spiritual mystique, andmuse and rhymes. This book will treat the English speaking world to a taste ofrare Indian songs and poetry.

Art in the Dark presents a collection of short stories that come together in a journey that is by turns whimsical, ironic, frightening, and absurd. Much like the passage of life itself, these stories are mysterious and unpredictable. Through analogy and metaphor, author Robert Eichelberg addresses a number of difficult topics-such as love, death, alienation, materialism, war, and politics-from unique new angles, bringing to light aspects of each that may otherwise be difficult to consider. From the opening salvo of "The Only Rule," with its shocking subject and frightening twist, to the gruesome and heartrending tale of Blue in "The Bad Dog," each tale is imbued with at least a hint of the surreal. They remind us that our journey though life is short and that we must embrace every moment-even as we must ultimately let go. These stories transcend the conventional and challenge your perceptions and expectations, leaving you always in awe of the wonders that remain ahead.

The proliferation of literature on the various forms of human exploitation before the nineteenth century provides the raison d'etre for this seminal collection of essays. The ideological foundations upon which systems of coerced labour were constructed are discussed, and then placed into context by examinations of unfree labour in Europe and the colonies. Attention is also paid to the ways in which the oppressed created their cultural space, and challenged those who held them in servitude.

The title of the present volume, The Worlds of Victorian Fiction, is frankly ambiguous. It was chosen to accommodate a number of essays quite dissimilar in approach and purpose, some tracing a genre or motif throughout the Victorian period, some concentrating on the values of a single author, others on the style and structure of a specific novel.
