Fields of Play

How do the specific circumstances in which we write affect what we write? How does what we write affect who we become? How can we maintain professsional and personal integrity in today's university?

Fields of Play in Modern Drama

Starting from the assumption that all theater is at least implicitly participatory, Professor Whitaker approaches thirteen plays, from Ibsen's Rosmersholm to Beckett's Endgame and Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead. He asks the reader to commit himself to a variety of points of view—those of witnesses, actors, directors, and characters—as a series of "critical fictions" lead him toward the experience of each play in performance. The author supplies detailed readings of the plays in various modes. The styles of the chapters vary according to the issues dominant in the plays discussed, and the reader experiences simultaneously a sense of approaching the meaning of performance and of gaining a deeper understanding of the play through a subtle and allusive commentary. Originally published in 1977. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

Level Fields of Play

Though humble, Shows enjoyed a happy childhood, raised by two strong parents and surrounded by family, friends, and a faith community. Level fields of play were hard to find in Bobby's day.

Level Fields of Play

Everything about Bobby Shows is big. From his smile and personality, to his physical presence and spiritual leadership, Bobby Shows cuts a figure larger than life. Growing up in rural Mississippi, he learned the value of family, of God, of community, a sense of humor and a good hook shot. Heading into college at Mississippi State University, Bobby Shows hoped to live up to his status as the number one major college recruit in the Magnolia State. However, before he could do that, he had to get right with God. In the end, he and his teammates won more than championships. Events in which they participated sparked change in the segregationist landscape of college sports and college campuses. Bobby Shows' early years in rural Mississippi during the 1940s and 1950s are almost storybook quality. Segregation was more than black and white; it was saved and lost. Mississippi buckles the Bible Belt synched down tight. Though humble, Shows enjoyed a happy childhood, raised by two strong parents and surrounded by family, friends, and a faith community. Level fields of play were hard to find in Bobby's day. Whether playing basketball on a hard-scrabble court where you hoped to get the down-hill end for the second half of play, or working in the cotton fields alongside other boys like him, old black men and women and young ones, too. It didn't matter - under the scorching sun, the back-aching, finger-splitting work of picking cotton takes place on level fields. Any illusion of integration and equality did not extend beyond the cotton fields Bobby worked as a boy. "Separate but equal" may have been the slogan of segregation, but separation of the races remained the singular emphasis in the South. Equality was at best a secondary consideration. Bobby's story starts in the middle of segregation - an oppressive 'us against them' culture about to be turned on its head. His experiences while at Mississippi State both on and off the basketball court integrated a love and concern for people that would lead him into a life of ministry. As an individual, Bobby remains true to self and to God, and his story is about how that combination of self-awareness and devotion to God has led to a productive and meaningful life.

Fields of Play

Wales has a rich and record-making sporting history and also has the sporting landscape to match it. From the famous groudns such as the Arms Park, the Vetch, Stradey Park, the Racecourse, and the Empire Pool to the bastions of High Victorian morality and social order such as Roath Park, and on further into Wales - in the Valleys and the Pit Communities around Wrexham - where playing fields arrived late and came as a result of local communities and local authorities responding to dire economic circumstances and the need to regenerate and rebuild working-class Wales. The Labour Party heralding real change for the pit communities genuinely did transform those communities in a remarkable period between the two world wars by throwing itself into regeneration and community activitism. This book explores these stories and the hopes and aspirations of ordinary communities and an entire nation that were shaped by a set of goal posts.

At Play in the Fields of Consciousness

The primary purpose of this book is to provide a state-of-the-art look at the study of consciousness, which is in the midst of a great renaissance. While honoring Jerome Singer's impressive career in psychology, this volume demonstrates the broad and integrative influence the study of consciousness is having across a variety of subdisciplines of psychology--experimental, personality, developmental, social, and clinical. The contributors to this volume represent both pioneers in the study of consciousness and contemporary researchers whose work has followed in the spirit of their predecessors' seminal work. This book will serve as a landmark end-of-the-century statement about psychology's understanding of the role of consciousness in affective and cognitive processes, the development of imagination in children, and its application to the practice of psychotherapy.

At Play in the Killing Fields

JOE KAYE (1976-2031) - The False Prophet of Fennimore Place Joe Kaye was an American poet, philosopher, schoolteacher, and author of 11 books. Born in New York City, Joe taught in New York, Hawaii, and Michigan. In Hawaii, he started writing and by the age of 25 he published his first manuscript. He later moved to Michigan and then to Wisconsin, where he developed a tumor which began to give him delusions. His delusions led him to construct a giant labyrinth on a tropical island. He also had an obsession with looking for a message he believed he had left for himself in a past life, in the form of a poem, song, or story. He went insane with paranoia and believed the karma police were coming to take him away. He also became obsessed with cheating death, practicing a religion called Voodoo Botany, believing it would make him a god. On a late night talk show, he made a prophecy about the extinction of the human race. He was sent to rest at Fennimore Place Institute. The maze was never finished. He died broke and penniless.
