WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY ROBERT MACFARLANE Lopez’s journey across our frozen planet is a celebration of the Arctic in all its guises. A hostile landscape of ice, freezing oceans and dazzling skyscapes. Home to millions of diverse animals and people. The stage to massive migrations by land, sea and air. The setting of epic exploratory voyages. And, in crystalline prose, Lopez captures the magic of the Arctic – the essential mystery and beauty of a continent that has enchanted man’s imagination and ambition for centuries.

This version of the publication includes the Flute and Vibraphone parts but does not include the digital audio files. These may be purchased from https://43.dpdcart.com/product/139135. The starting point for this work is Voices of the Land, the third part of Footprints In New Snow, a radio documentary/composition about the Inuit and their culture which the composer created in 1995 with CBC Radio producer Keith Horner. In the documentary, the foreground is occupied by the voice of Winston White, an Inuit Elder and broadcaster from Nunavut who speaks about the north and its inhabitants. In the present work, this place is taken by the flute and vibraphone.

Mit Nabokov in der Eisenbahn, mit Graham Greene auf der Flucht vor giftigen Spinnen und mit Chatwin auf Wanderschaft - Das »Tao des Reisens« ist die Quintessenz aus den Erlebnissen und Einsichten reisender Schriftsteller. Theroux untersucht den Inhalt von Reisegepäck, durchleuchtet das Gefühl des Fremdseins und probiert unangenehm exotische Gerichte. Dabei kommen in diesem philosophischen Handbuch auch imaginäre Reisen nicht zu kurz - denn letztlich lässt sich lesend genauso gut die Welt erkunden. Paul Therouxs Grundsätze des Reisens: 1. Verlass dein Zuhause 2. Reise alleine 3. Reise mit leichtem Gepäck 4. Nimm eine Landkarte mit 5. Reise auf dem Landweg 6. Geh zu Fuß über eine Grenze 7. Führe ein Reisetagebuch 8. Lies einen Roman, der nichts mit dem Ort zu tun hat, an dem du dich befindest 9. Wenn du schon ein Handy dabei hast, vermeide wenigstens, es zu benutzen 10. Finde einen Freund

Arctic Modernities

The Environmental, the Exotic and the Everyday

Less tangible than melting polar glaciers or the changing social conditions in northern societies, the modern Arctic represented in writings, visual images and films has to a large extent been neglected in scholarship and policy-making. However, the modern Arctic is a not only a natural environment dramatically impacted by human activities. It is also an incongruous amalgamation of exoticized indigenous tradition and a mundane everyday. The chapters in this volume examine the modern Arctic from all these perspectives. They demonstrate to what extent the processes of modernization have changed the discursive signification of the Arctic. They also investigate the extent to which the traditions of heroic Arctic images – whether these traditions are affirmed, contested or repudiated – have continued to shape, influence and inform modern discourses. Sometimes the Arctic is seen as synonymous with modernity itself. Sometimes it appears as a utopian space signalling a different future. However, it still often represents the continued survival within modernity of the past as nostalgia, longing, dream and myth.

That's Raven Talk

Holophrastic Readings of Contemporary Indigenous Literatures

"That's Raven Talk": Holophrastic Readings of Contemporary Indigenous Literatures is the first comprehensive study of North American Indigenous language as the basis of textualized orality in Indigenous literatures in English. Drawing on a signficant Indigenous language structure--the holophrase (one-word sentence)--Neuhaus proposes "holophrastic reading" as a culturally specific reading strategy for orality in Indigenous writing. In readings of works by Ishmal Alunik (Inuvialuit), Alootook Ipellie (Inuit), Richard Van Camp (Dogrib), Thomas King (Cherokee), and Louise Bernice Halfe (Cree), she demonstrates that (para)holophrases--the various transformations of holophrases into English-language discourse--textualize orality in Indigenous literatures by grounding it in Indigenous linguistic traditions. Neuhaus's discussion points to the paraholophrase, the functional equivalent of the holophrase, as a central discourse device in Indigenous writing and as a figure of speech in its own right. Building on interdisciplinary research, this groundbreaking study not only links oral strategies in Indigenous writing to Indigenous rhetorical sovereignty, but also points to ancestral language influences and Indigenous rhetoric more generally as areas for future research.

Die Zwölf – Wesen der Dunkelheit, Todfeinde der Menschen – sind vernichtet, ihre hundertjährige Schreckensherrschaft über die Welt ist vorüber. Nach und nach wagen sich die Überlebenden aus ihrer eng ummauerten Zuflucht, Hoffnung keimt auf. Auf den Ruinen der einstigen Zivilisation wollen sie eine neue, eine bessere Gesellschaft aufbauen: der älteste Traum der Menschheit. Doch in einer fernen, verlassenen Stadt lauert der Eine: Zero.

Nur Amy vermag ihn jetzt noch aufzuhalten, das Mädchen aus dem Nirgendwo, die einzige Hoffnung der Menschheit. Und so treten sie und ihre Freunde an zum letzten großen Kampf zwischen Licht und Dunkelheit ...

"To fully understand human involvement in the natural world, Browne argues that disciplinary boundaries must be opened, with profound implications for the practice of democracy. The degradation of the physical environment and democratic decay, for Browne, are rooted in the same problem: our persistent belief that humans are somehow separate from their physical environment. Browne probes the work of a number of major American writers through the lens of Dewey's philosophy."--BOOK JACKET.

Literature in Society

The essays in this volume focus on the text-world dichotomy that has been a pivotal problem since Plato, implicating notions of mimesis and representation and raising a series of debatable issues. Do literary texts relate only to the fictional world and not to the real one? Do they not only describe but also perform and thus create and transform reality? Is literature a mere reflection/expression of society, a field and a tool of political manipulations, a playground to exercise ideological and social power? Herbert Grabes’ seminal essay “Literature in Society/Society and Its Literature”, which opens this volume, perfectly captures the essential functions of literature in society, whether it be Derridean belief in a revolutionary potential of literature, “the power of literature to say everything”, or Hillis Miller’s view of literature having the potential to create or reveal alternative realities; or, according to Grabes, the ability of literature “to offer to society a possibility of self-reflection by way of presenting a double of what is held to be reality”; and, last but not least, the ability of literature “to considerably contribute to the joy of life by enabling a particular kind of pleasure” – the pleasure of reading literature. The subsequent essays collected in this volume deal with complex relations between Literature and Society, approaching this issue from different angles and in various historical epochs. They are on diverse thematics and written from diverse theoretical perspectives, differing in scope and methodology.
