In Praise of Nahum Tate covers a wide range of reading experiences including poetry, short stories, reviews and politics. It features an eclectic poetry collection, ranging from the muscular, old-fashioned formality of ‘Old Peg Remembers,’ a sonnet on the story of Pegasus and Bellerophon, to relaxed, free verse observations of nature and studies of family life. ‘Folded,’ is a bitter-sweet portrait of a family coping with divorce. ‘The Commonwealth Of Crows’ is a sequence of sixteen poems, illuminated by Julie Foley’s beautiful artwork, which looks at corvids from many different angles. The short stories are interwoven with humour and dark drama, and even explore magical realism in ‘The Clock Of Real Time.’ The book also features an exclusive interview with Robin Williamson, Scottish musician, singer, songwriter and storyteller.
This collection of short stories showcases 20th-century Dutch authors—including Hugo Claus, Harry Mulisch, and Gerard Reve—who are inadequately represented in translation. The range of styles, subject matter, and political argument among these writers makes for a startling reminder that Holland has been both a crossroads in Europe and an imperial power with entanglements from South Africa to the East and the West Indies to Shanghai. Claustrophobia, paranoia, power, and desire are the themes of many of these stories, and whether set at home or in exotic locales, they turn an eye to global events.
The emotional and sensual, religious and erotic excitement of the whip, a crucial instrument of stimulation in devotional and sexual practices, as seen in religious, literary, and medical texts and images.
This book explores Zipporah (Moses' Ethiopian, Black, Midianite wife who was the daughter of Jethro [Raguel]and the sister of Hobab) as the heroine who God chose to assist Moses' efforts to lead his people from Egypt to the promise land. Few realize that she actually saved Moses' life. The book points to many other actions of women such as Abraham's wife, Keturah, where God has chosen Black women to step up to and meet the challenges in accomplishing His will. It shows that although God created races and kindred, He also expects us to look beyond the differences, reach for the gifts that each has to offer and work in love and unity on one accord.
