Download or read book The Feast of the Goat written by Mario Vargas Llosa and published by Faber & Faber. This book was released on 2012-10-18 with total page 450 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Urania Cabral, a New York lawyer, returns to the Dominican Republic after a lifelong self-imposed exile. Once she is back in her homeland, the elusive feeling of terror that has overshadowed her whole life suddenly takes shape. Urania's own story alternates with the powerful climax of dictator Rafael Trujillo's reign. In 1961, Trujillo's decadent inner circle (which includes Urania's soon-to-be disgraced father) enjoys the luxuries of privilege while the rest of the nation lives in fear and deprivation. As Trujillo clings to power, a plot to push the Dominican Republic into the future is being formed. But after the murder of its hated dictator, the Goat, is carried out, the Dominican Republic is plunged into the nightmare of a bloody and uncertain aftermath. Now, thirty years later, Urania reveals how her own family was fatally wounded by the forces of history. In The Feast of the Goat Mario Vargas Llosa eloquently explores the effects of power and violence on the lives of both the oppressors and those they victimized. ' The Feast of the Goat will stand out as the great emblematic novel of Latin America's twentieth century and removes One Hundred Years of Solitude of that title.' Times Literary Supplement

Book Synopsis Binding Violence by : Moira Fradinger
Download or read book Binding Violence written by Moira Fradinger and published by Stanford University Press. This book was released on 2010-06-03 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Binding Violence exposes the relation between literary imagination, autonomous politics, and violence through the close analysis of literary texts—in particular Sophocles' Antigone, D. A. F. de Sade's 120 Days of Sodom, and Vargas Llosa's The Feast of the Goat—that speak to a blind spot in democratic theory, namely, how we decide democratically on the borders of our political communities. These works bear the imprint of the anxieties of democracy concerning its other—violence—especially when the question of a redefinition of membership is at stake. The book shares the philosophical interest in rethinking politics that has recently surfaced at the crossroads of literary criticism, philosophy, critical theory, and psychoanalysis. Fradinger takes seriously the responsibility to think through and give names to the political uses of violence and to provoke useful reflection on the problem of violence as it relates to politics and on literature as it relates to its times.

Book Synopsis Mario Vargas Llosa by : Raymond Leslie Williams
Download or read book Mario Vargas Llosa written by Raymond Leslie Williams and published by University of Texas Press. This book was released on 2014-12-01 with total page 248 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Awarded the Nobel Prize in 2010 at the age of seventy-four, Peruvian writer Mario Vargas Llosa has held pivotal roles in the evolution and revolutions of modern Latin American literature. Perhaps surprisingly, no complete history of Vargas Llosa's works, placed in biographical and historical context, has been published—until now. A masterwork from one of America's most revered scholars of Latin American fiction, Mario Vargas Llosa: A Life of Writing provides a critical overview of Vargas Llosa's numerous novels while reinvigorating debates regarding conventional interpretations of the work. Weaving analysis with discussions of the writer's political commentary, Raymond Leslie Williams traces the author's youthful identity as a leftist student of the 1960s to a repudiation of some of his earlier ideas beginning in the 1980s. Providing a unique perspective on the complexity, nuance, and scope of Vargas Llosa's lauded early novels and on his passionate support of indigenous populations in his homeland, Williams then turns his eye to the recent works, which serve as a bridge between the legacies of the Boom and the diverse array of contemporary Latin American fiction writers at work today. In addition, Williams provides a detailed description of Vargas Llosa's traumatic childhood and its impact on him—seen particularly in his lifelong disdain for authority figures—as well as of the authors who influenced his approach, from Faulkner to Flaubert. Culminating in reflections drawn from Williams's formal interviews and casual conversations with the author at key phases of both men's careers, this is a landmark publication that will spark new lines of inquiry into an intricate body of work.

In this book we recuperate and expose the Feast of Tabernacles eminency, impacts and how we as the church can transition to the perfect image of Christ and also reveals the resources in which Christ can be revealed to the Church with the intention to make the plan and the Will of God the Father visible on the earth through His body which is the Church. The Feast of Tabernacles is fulfilled Christological and eschatologically meaning it seeks to reveal Christ in a Personified, Embodied and Incarnated form and also the journey that we as the Church need to take in revealing Him as the only optimism. In this book we discussing the Feast of Tabernacles in our Current Season not for us to put a great mark the days which were celebrated or for us to redo as the ancient Israelites did however we put the emphasis that we are Tabernacles (dwelling place) of God and the duties that were performed by the Jewish as they carry a metaphoric designation in our current season, as the Feast serves for two purposes which are harvesting the fruits and dwelling in the Booths (Tabernacles) this speaks of Christ dwelling in us and we are able to reveal Christ in form of fruits, Greek word for fruits is “karpos” which means anything that originates or comes from something which is the result of work, act or deeds, from this we can conclude that our works, act or deeds can tell how much of Christ we have possessed meaning they bring a blueprint on how us as the Tabernacles of God can live to portray the very Christ that which is in us.
Book Synopsis Ireland, the Irish, and the Rise of Biofiction by : Michael Lackey
Download or read book Ireland, the Irish, and the Rise of Biofiction written by Michael Lackey and published by Bloomsbury Publishing USA. This book was released on 2021-11-04 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Biofiction is literature that names its protagonist after an actual historical figure, and it has become a dominant literary form over the last 35 years. What has not yet been scholarly acknowledged or documented is that the Irish played a crucial role in the origins, evolution, rise, and now dominance of biofiction. Michael Lackey first examines the groundbreaking biofictions that Oscar Wilde and George Moore authored in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as well as the best biographical novels about Wilde (by Peter Ackroyd and Colm Tóibín). He then focuses on contemporary authors of biofiction (Sabina Murray, Graham Shelby, Anne Enright, and Mario Vargas Llosa, who Lackey has interviewed for this work) who use the lives of prominent Irish figures (Roger Casement and Eliza Lynch) to explore the challenges of seizing and securing a life-promoting form of agency within a colonial and patriarchal context. In conclusion, Lackey briefly analyzes biographical novels by Peter Carey and Mary Morrissy to illustrate why agency is of central importance for the Irish, and why that focus mandated the rise of the biographical novel, a literary form that mirrors the constructed Irish interior.

Book Synopsis Biblical Truths and the Plan of Salvation by : Marilyn E. Phelan
Download or read book Biblical Truths and the Plan of Salvation written by Marilyn E. Phelan and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2023-03-01 with total page 305 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A judge and a retired law professor, co-authors of In His Footsteps: The Early Followers of Jesus, provide in this book a comprehensive study of the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation with an objective to connect the early Scriptures to the New Testament writings of the first believers and to present conclusive proof that the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ fulfilled scriptural prophecies of a promised Messiah. The book clarifies parts of the Scriptures some find difficult to understand given the many languages and translations through the ages in which the nonetheless timeless and amazing words from the Bible were written and recorded. The book details historical events that led to the development of the books of the New Testament and documents the history of the spread of the gospel from the early church to the present. In also reviewing current events that point to a nearing of the end times and a miraculous return of the Messiah, the last chapter includes a timetable of incidents that have led to the new nation of Israel and the return of the Jewish people to their homeland—additional evidence of the truth and the continuing fulfillment of scriptural prophecies.
Book Synopsis La fiesta del chivo / The Feast of the Goat by : Mario Vargas Llosa
Download or read book La fiesta del chivo / The Feast of the Goat written by Mario Vargas Llosa and published by National Geographic Books. This book was released on 2017-05-30 with total page 0 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Vargas Llosa, Premio Nobel de Literatura y Príncipe de Asturias de las Letras, relata el fin de una era dando voz al impecable e implacable general Trujillo, apodado el Chivo, y al sosegado y hábil doctor Balaguer (sempiterno presidente de la República Dominicana). Uno de los mejores libros en español de los últimos 25 años según Babelia. ¿Por qué regresa Urania Cabral a la isla que juró no volver a pisar? ¿Por qué sigue vacía y llena de miedo desde los catorce años? ¿Por qué no ha tenido un solo amor? En La Fiesta del Chivo (2000) asistimos a un doble retorno. Mientras Urania visita a su padre en Santo Domingo, volvemos a 1961, cuando la capital dominicana aún se llamaba Ciudad Trujillo. Allí un hombre que no suda tiraniza a tres millones de personas sin saber que se gesta una maquiavélica transición a la democracia. Con un ritmo y una precisión difícilmente superables, este peruano universal muestra que la política puede consistir en abrirse camino entre cadáveres, y que un ser inocente puede convertirse en un regalo truculento. Mejor novela española del siglo XXI según los expertos consultados por el diario ABC. Reseñas: «Mario Vargas Llosa ha vuelto a la novela histórica con el arte acumulado tras su ya extenso periplo literario. El resultado es un libro espléndido, de lo mejor que ha dado su innegable talento.» Joaquín Marco, El Cultural de El Mundo «Una estructura perfectamente engarzada, donde el desarrollo de las tres líneas argumentales se refuerza sostenidamente a un ritmo apasionante de thriller político e intriga dramática.» Fietta Jarque, Babelia «Esta novela atrapará a todo aquel que caiga en sus fauces. El festín narrativo organizado por el autor invita a continuar insomne hasta el último lamento de esperanza final... podemos disfrutar, una vez más, de un talento torrencial, el que se vierte en las voces y acontecimientos de una obra llena de incertidumbres morales.» Andrés Magro, Diario 16 «El doctor Vargas Llosa ha escrito mucho más que la historia de un magnicidio... Esta es la vuelta triunfal a su mejor literatura.» Javier Aparicio, El Periódico de Catalunya «Pletórico de imaginación, técnica narrativa y altura de pensamiento, vuelve el mejor Mario Vargas Llosa con La Fiesta del Chivo , una feroz crítica de la tiranía impuesta por Trujillo a la República Dominicana y una excepcional novela sobre la corrupción que envuelve cualquier forma absolutista de ejercicio de poder.» Francisco García Pérez, La Nueva España ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Haunted all her life by feelings of terror and emptiness, forty-nine-year-old Urania Cabral returns to her native Dominican Republic - and finds herself reliving the events of l961, when the capital was still called Trujillo City and one old man terrorized a nation of three million. Rafael Trujillo, the depraved ailing dictator whom Dominicans call the Goat, controls his inner circle with a combination of violence and blackmail. In Trujillo's gaudy palace, treachery and cowardice have become a way of life. But Trujillo's grasp is slipping. There is a conspiracy against him, and a Machiavellian revolution already underway that will have bloody consequences of its own. In this 'masterpiece of Latin American and world literature, and one of the finest political novels ever written' (Bookforum), Mario Vargas Llosa recounts the end of a regime and the birth of a terrible democracy, giving voice to the historical Trujillo and the victims, both innocent and complicit, drawn into his deadly orbit.
Book Synopsis In His Footsteps by : Marilyn E. Phelan
Download or read book In His Footsteps written by Marilyn E. Phelan and published by Wipf and Stock Publishers. This book was released on 2021-06-08 with total page 206 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From the lengthy research and pen of two lawyers, a judge and a former law professor, this book, In His Footsteps: The Early Followers of Jesus, is a guide to understanding the early Christian movement through a study of the lives and ministries of the first believers, most of whom had met with the risen Jesus and thus knew, without doubt, that Jesus was the Christ and Savior of the world. The book cites accounts from Eusebius, a third-century Greek Christian historian, who also referenced testimony from first-century Christians about the almost unbelievable courage of the early followers of Jesus, who willingly and fearlessly, despite tremendous persecution and sufferings, brought to an otherwise lost world an assurance of life eternal for all believers. The book also refers to the fulfillment of many of the biblical prophecies, the principal ones being the restoration of the nation of Israel and the return of many Jewish people to their homeland. This book is an indispensable resource for all persons, as the tremendous sacrifices of the first believers should never be forgotten.
