Theatricality in the Nineteenth-Century English Novel
Author: Joseph Litvak
Publisher: Univ of California Press
Category: Literary Criticism
Litvak demonstrates that private experience in the novels of Austen, Charlotte Brontë, Eliot, and James is a rigorous enactment of a public script that constructs normative gender and class identities. He suggests that the theatricality which pervades these novels enforces social norms while introducing opportunities for novelists to resist them. This approach encourages a rethinking of the genre and its cultural contexts in all their instability and ambivalence.

Reflections on Continuing Professional Development of Mathematics Teachers in a Collabrative Partnership
Author: Cyril Julie
Publisher: AFRICAN SUN MeDIA
The research reported in Caught in the Act draws together the insights gained from a continuous professional development initiative for high school mathematics teachers, teaching in low socio-economic status and socially challenged environments in South Africa. The chapters show the possibilities for enhancing achievement in school mathematics if a strength-based approach is adopted to develop teaching with teachers and when their concerns are taken seriously. The book demonstrates that the ecological relevance – fitness for the context in which teachers are teaching – of the “goods” developed and distributed by initiatives should be a major consideration to offer hope for sustainable implementation to improve school mathematics education. The book is of interest to mathematics teachers, school leaders, mathematics curriculum advisors, policy makers and researchers.
Some desires are too dangerous to embrace. As the owner of a flourishing Latin American crafts boutique, Karina Strauss should be basking in her success. Instead, she’s worried about her troubled sister, the girlfriend – and prisoner – of drug lord, Carlos Moreno. Kari wants no part of that life, but when she helps a friend cross into the United States illegally, two men on opposite sides of the law take notice: Moreno and Adam Cortez, the handsome border protection officer who lets Kari off the hook. It’s not just Kari’s tantalizing flash of skin that catches Adam’s attention – her drug cartel connections bring back the demons of his past. Moreno demands that Kari smuggle a package for him in exchange for her sister’s freedom. Adam also gets dangerously close, tempting her to surrender and fulfill her wildest desires. As Kari prepares for the drug run, dark secrets and deadly consequences lurk around every corner. But concern for her sister drives Kari toward a terrifying act – despite Adam’s warnings, despite her overwhelming fears and despite the odds against coming out alive.
"This definitive anthology focuses on the 70s and 80s--a time when women made a big and noisy impact on society -- and provides readers with insight into the profound effects that feminism and women's work have had on contemporary culture. Full of sass and insight, this essential collection is part survey, part critical discourse, and part reference book."--Pub. desc.
A hilarious short story involving academia, thespians and shenanigans. Caught In the Act describes the escapades of an overworked university don who takes a hobby to help relax and forget his academic woes. He joins a local amateur dramatics group with the intention of serious acting but taking the lead role in 'A Inspector Calls' leads to all manner of disasters. Eventually the 'Inspector' falls - into the world of oversexed sirens, a lisping homosexual, drunken brawls and police callouts! Caught In the Act is the second in a series of "Caught" short stories and develops some of the main characters. Possibly built on genuine events and moulded from real characters, the ‘Caught’ stories are embellished with a ‘Moretti’ magic that disguises their true origins and personas whilst keeping them tangible and side-splittingly believable. Are they true stories? Are the characters real? You will have to decide for yourself as you read this entertaining yarn, and the other stories that follow.
