The Books behind the Masks

The Books Behind the Masks

"The study of the ancient Egyptian military and warfare now encompasses the background court society in which the various eulogies drawn up for the glorification of the kings were composed. This study proceeds from a previous analysis of the leadership characteristics of the military pharaohs to their underlying war records, the literary compositions that the pharaohs had drawn up for their glorification. A study of these court-inspired accounts fits within the overarching new perspectives of royally directed and inspired ancient Egyptian literature. The historical background covers the New Kingdom pharaohs Kamose, Thutmose III, Ramesses II and III, with Merenptah, plus Pianchy. The concentration is primarily upon the narrative structures employed in each of these king's monumental inscriptions"--

The Atmospherians

Sasha Marcus was once the epitome of contemporary success: an internet sensation, social media darling, and a creator of a high profile wellness brand for women. But a confrontation with an abusive troll has taken a horrifying turn, and now she's at rock bottom: canceled and doxxed online, fired from her waitress job and fortressed in her apartment while men's rights protestors rage outside. All that once glittered now condemns. Sasha confides in her oldest childhood friend, Dyson--a failed actor with a history of body issues--who hatches a plan for Sasha to restore her reputation by becoming the face of his new business venture, The Atmosphere: a rehabilitation community for men. Based in an abandoned summer camp and billed as a workshop for job training, it is actually a rigorous program designed to rid men of their toxic masculinity and heal them physically, emotionally, and socially. Sasha has little choice but to accept. But what horrors await her as the resident female leader of a crew of washed up, desperate men? And what exactly does Dyson want?

Life behind Masks

‘The real impact of Covid can never be measured through numbersbut through what it did to ordinary people.’ On 24 March 2020, the lives of 1.3 billion Indians suddenly changed. By the time the country went into a nationwide lockdown in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, it had become evident that this was not just a viral pneumonia but a more insidious and mysterious adversary that was claiming millions of lives. The devastating consequences of the virus had overwhelmed some of the best healthcare systems globally and brought the entire world to a complete standstill. But the most glaring fact was that the virus was here to stay. Life behind Masks provides a vivid account of people from all walks of life in search of their own meaning and hope against the backdrop of Covid. From a couple who fell in love over frozen blood plasma to a millionaire who was forced to sell fruits in the lockdown—the book poignantly portrays a compendium of stories that reinforce the importance of never giving up. These accounts are further enriched through insightful expositions by prominent virologists, epidemiologists, psychiatrists, public health analysts, microbiologists, bureaucrats, pulmonologists and internal medicine specialists. All in all, Life behind Masks is a defining chronicle of the unheard truth, which is gripping and moving in its testimony and utterly honest and timely in its depiction.

James Dickey

If nothing else, Dickey's yearas a graduate student (his thesis was approved byProfessors Beatty and PurdyonMay19, 1950) allowedhim more timeto read andcollect books. Behind hismanymasks was the devout bookworm.

James Dickey

A fascinating biography of one of the most popular, colorful, and notorious American poets of our century. The legendary Southern poet James Dickey never shied away from cultivating a heroic mystique. Like Norman Mailer and Ernest Hemingway, he earned a reputation as a sportsman, boozer, war hero, and womanizer as well as a great poet, novelist, screenwriter, and essayist. But James Dickey made lying both a literary strategy and a protective camouflage; even his family and closest friends failed to distinguish between the mythical James Dickey and the actual man. Henry Hart sees lying as the central theme to Dickey's life; and in this authoritative, immensely entertaining biography he delves deep behind Dickey's many masks. Letters, anecdotes, tall tales and true ones, as well as the reluctant but finally candid cooperation of Dickey himself animate Hart's narration of a remarkable life. Readers of Dickey's National Book Award-winning poetry, his bestselling novel Deliverance, and anyone who witnessed his electrifying readings of his work will savor this book.

Theatrocracy

Theatrocracy

Theatrocracy is a book about the power of the theatre, how it can affect the people who experience it, and the societies within which it is embedded. It takes as its model the earliest theatrical form we possess complete plays from, the classical Greek theatre of the fifth century BCE, and offers a new approach to understanding how ancient drama operated in performance and became such an influential social, cultural, and political force, inspiring and being influenced by revolutionary developments in political engagement and citizen discourse. Key performative elements of Greek theatre are analyzed from the perspective of the cognitive sciences as embodied, live, enacted events, with new approaches to narrative, space, masks, movement, music, words, emotions, and empathy. This groundbreaking study combines research from the fields of the affective sciences - the study of human emotions - including cognitive theory, neuroscience, psychology, artificial intelligence, psychiatry, and cognitive archaeology, with classical, theatre, and performance studies. This book revisits what Plato found so unsettling about drama - its ability to produce a theatrocracy, a "government" of spectators - and argues that this was not a negative but an essential element of Athenian theatre. It shows that Athenian drama provided a place of alterity where audiences were exposed to different viewpoints and radical perspectives. This perspective was, and is, vital in a freethinking democratic society where people are expected to vote on matters of state. In order to achieve this goal, the theatre offered a dissociative and absorbing experience that enhanced emotionality, deepened understanding, and promoted empathy. There was, and still is, an urgent imperative for theatre.

Ice Cream  Gasmasks and God

ÿJoyce Lovely grew up in Liverpool during World War 2, her family narrowly surviving a blitz which severely damaged their home and killed two thousand of their fellow Liverpudlians in a single week.

As a teenager in the post-war years she found herself pursued by romantic suitors. Her choice of husband was ultimately guided by her early discovery of God and faith, which was how she found herself a newly-married woman struggling to run her first homeÿin the wilds of the Shetland Isles, trying to make ends meet on the slim pay of her minister husband and the kindness of the islanders. A charming memoir of a young woman?s childhood and coming of age.
