Wilder Girls     dition fran  aise

Une île sauvage, trois amies inséparables, une descente aux enfers. Voilà bientôt dix-huit mois qu'un mal inconnu, la Tox, a frappé l'île Raxter. Dix-huit mois que le pensionnat pour jeunes filles qui en occupe la pointe a été mis sous quarantaine. D'abord, la Tox a tué les enseignantes, une à une, puis elle a infecté les élèves, dont les survivantes portent désormais ses monstrueux stigmates dans leur chair. Coupées du reste du monde, cernées par les bêtes mutantes qui rôdent dans les bois alentour et livrées à elles-mêmes, celles qui restent n'osent plus sortir de l'enceinte de l'école. Jour après jour, elles attendent le vaccin que le gouvernement leur a promis. Hetty et ses deux meilleures amies, Byatt et Reese, se serrent les coudes malgré les privations, bien déterminées à lutter ensemble jusqu'au bout... Plus glaçant encore que Sa Majesté des mouches, un huis clos féminin et féministe qui a fait frissonner l'Amérique de plaisir !

Thornton Wilder Classical Reception and American Literature

an ideal in learned, creative writers such as Emily Dickinson (1830–86) and Gertrude Stein (1874–1946), Wilder often represents his female sage as a poet or a reciter of poetry, especially Greek tragedy. Indeed, these representations ...

Thornton Wilder  Classical Reception  and American Literature

This book delineates how Thornton Wilder (1897-1975), a learned playwright and novelist, embeds himself within the classical tradition, integrating Greek and Roman motifs with a wide range of sources to produce heart-breaking masterpieces such as Our Town and comedy sensations such as Dolly Levi. Through this study of archival sources and close reading, readers will understand Wilder’s avant-garde staging and innovative time sequences not as a break with the past, but as a response to the classics. The author traces the genesis of unforgettable characters like Dolly Levi in The Matchmaker, Emily Webb in Our Town, and George Antrobus in The Skin of Our Teeth. Vergil’s expression, "Here are the tears of the world, and human matters touch the heart" haunts Wilder’s oeuvre. Understanding Vergil’s phrase as "tears for the beauty of the world," Wilder utilizes scenes depicting the beauty of the world and the sorrow when individuals recognize this too late. Wilder exhorts us to observe lovingly, alert to the wonder of the everyday. This work will appeal to actors and directors, professors and students in Classics and in American literature, those fascinated by modern drama and performance studies, and non-specialists, theatre-goers, and readers in the general public.

Unruly Girls Unrepentant Mothers

Both girls develop passionate friendships with wilder girls who lure them away from the protected confines of their homes, and both have stormy relationships with their mothers, who are unrepentant in their own ways.

Unruly Girls  Unrepentant Mothers

Since the 1990s, when Reviving Ophelia became a best seller and “Girl Power” a familiar anthem, girls have assumed new visibility in the culture. Yet in asserting their new power, young women have redefined femininity in ways that have often mystified their mothers. They have also largely disavowed feminism, even though their new influence is a likely legacy of feminism’s Second Wave. At the same time, popular culture has persisted in idealizing, demonizing, or simply erasing mothers, rarely depicting them in strong and loving relationships with their daughters. Unruly Girls, Unrepentent Mothers, a companion to Kathleen Rowe Karlyn’s groundbreaking work, The Unruly Woman, studies the ways popular culture and current debates within and about feminism inform each other. Surveying a range of films and television shows that have defined girls in the postfeminist era—from Titanic and My So-Called Life to Scream and The Devil Wears Prada, and from Love and Basketball to Ugly Betty—Karlyn explores the ways class, race, and generational conflicts have shaped both Girl Culture and feminism’s Third Wave. Tying feminism’s internal conflicts to negative attitudes toward mothers in the social world, she asks whether today’s seemingly materialistic and apolitical girls, inspired by such real and fictional figures as the Spice Girls and Buffy the Vampire Slayer, have turned their backs on the feminism of their mothers or are redefining unruliness for a new age.

Naughty Girls Do  Inked   Kinked   1

Lexie Winters is on a mission—to lose her good girl image and tempt resident bad boy and professional tattoo artist, Ash Bodry, into her bed. Tired of being treated like his kid sister, it’s past time for her to play dirty. She has her work cut out for her though when it comes to the sinfully sexy yet incredibly frustrating man. As far as Ash is concerned, Lexie is strictly off limits. Not only are they friends, her dad just happens to be the sheriff, and years ago the man steered Ash away from a life of crime. No way is he repaying that favor by giving into his wicked fantasies of Lexie. But when the little vixen strolls into his tattoo parlor and requests a very naughty piercing, Ash’s honorable intentions are tested to their limits. Now that Lexie’s hammered the first chink in Ash’s defenses, and he’s sweating bullets, there’s no chance in hell she’s settling for his hands off policy. Even if it means some flirty strip tease action and late night skinny dipping to convince him that this newfound naughty girl will do whatever it takes to get her man. Warning: This book contains hot tattooed men, good girls gone bad, and sexy times on a beach. Sunscreen and a bucket of ice on standby is highly recommended.

After the Falls

The vivid and touching sequel to the bestselling memoir Too Close to the Falls. It's 1960 and twelve-year-old Cathy McClure has just been thrown out of Catholic school for-among other transgressions-filling the holy water fount with vodka. In the hopes of giving Cathy a fresh start away from their small town, the McClures leave behind Niagara Falls and the family pharmacy to start over in suburban Buffalo. But life in a subdivision and a school filled with "pubescent cheddar" holds little appeal for a girl who began working at four and smoking at nine. As the quaint world of 1950s America recedes into history, Cathy dives headfirst into the 1960s. Along the way, she adopts many personas with gusto-vandal, HoJo hostess, FBI suspect, civil rights demonstrator- but when tragedy strikes at home, Cathy must take on her most challenging role yet. As candid and compelling as Mary Karr's The Liars' Club and Jeanette Walls's The Glass Castle, After the Falls is an irresistible account of one girl's comingof-age during a tumultuous era and the moving tale of a rebellious spirit learning what it means to be a daughter.

Damaged

Damaged is book 1 of the Forbidden Desires trilogy. Books 2 and 3, Broken and Torn are available everywhere now! I’M NOT HERE TO SAVE HER. I’M HERE TO MAKE HER SCREAM. She was looking for a way out—a way to keep her head above the waters. She had no idea it meant letting people do whatever they wanted. To let them ruin her. To let them break her. Strip her of her dignity and leave her a shattered, damaged mess. She thought I might be the one who could save her. She thought I’d be different from the rest. She has no idea what I have planned for her. She has no idea about the truth, but I’ll teach her. From the moment I put the collar around her neck. The moment I pin her to the bed. The moment I whisper in her ear everything that I’m going to do. She’ll know that I’m not here to save her. I’m here to make her scream. And I can’t wait to get started.

Marked Women

Julia Roberts played a prostitute, famously, in Pretty Woman. So did Jodie Foster in Taxi Driver, Jane Fonda in Klute, Anna Karina in Vivre sa vie, Greta Garbo in Anna Christie, and Charlize Theron, who won an Academy Award for Monster. This engaging and generously illustrated study explores the depiction of female prostitute characters and prostitution in world cinema, from the silent era to the present-day industry. From the woman with control over her own destiny to the woman who cannot get away from her pimp, Russell Campbell shows the diverse representations of prostitutes in film. Marked Women classifies fifteen recurrent character types and three common narratives, many of them with their roots in male fantasy. The “Happy Hooker,” for example, is the liberated woman whose only goal is to give as much pleasure as she receives, while the “Avenger,” a nightmare of the male imagination, represents the threat of women taking retribution for all the oppression they have suffered at the hands of men. The “Love Story,” a common narrative, represents the prostitute as both heroine and anti-heroine, while “Condemned to Death” allows men to manifest, in imagination only, their hostility toward women by killing off the troubled prostitute in an act of cathartic violence. The figure of the woman whose body is available at a price has fascinated and intrigued filmmakers and filmgoers since the very beginning of cinema, but the manner of representation has also been highly conflicted and fiercely contested. Campbell explores the cinematic prostitute as a figure shaped by both reactionary thought and feminist challenges to the norm, demonstrating how the film industry itself is split by fascinating contradictions.

Around Again

A few of the wilder girls got in trouble, and I'd known who these girls were in my school because my neighbor Leslie worked at the town pharmacy and regularly handed out neat little pink plastic purses of birth control pills.

Around Again

When Robyn Panek is summoned by her ailing uncle Pal to operate his pony ring for one final season on his Massachusetts farm, her years away form the vacation spot of her youth seem an unbridgeable gap. But she is pulled by forces stronger than memory to piece together the events of that last childhood summer -- when a dark mystery swirled about her friend Lucy Dragon. They called her crazy, and Robyn must at last uncover the truth about Lucy's sudden disappearance -- and make peace with her own first love, Frankie. Now the future of Pal's six ponies, who circle the ring five times for a dollar a ride, is as uncertain as Robyn's own, as she confronts the past she ran from so long ago.

George Gissing the Working Woman and Urban Culture

Like some of the wilder girls who share Monica's dormitory, it is not unusual for Eve to make use of her latchkey, an essential accessory of a modern, city girl,77 to return to her Gower Street lodgings around midnight.

George Gissing  the Working Woman  and Urban Culture

George Gissing's work reflects his observations of fin-de-siècle London life. Influenced by the French naturalist school, his realist representations of urban culture testify to the significance of the city for the development of new class and gender identities, particularly for women. Liggins's study, which considers standard texts such as The Odd Women, New Grub Street, and The Nether World as well as lesser known short works, examines Gissing's fiction in relation to the formation of these new identities, focusing specifically on debates about the working woman. From the 1880s onward, a new genre of urban fiction increasingly focused on work as a key aspect of the modern woman's identity, elements of which were developed in the New Woman fiction of the 1890s. Showing his fascination with the working woman and her narrative potential, Gissing portrays women from a wide variety of occupations, ranging from factory girls, actresses, prostitutes, and shop girls to writers, teachers, clerks, and musicians. Liggins argues that by placing the working woman at the center of his narratives, rather than at the margins, Gissing made an important contribution to the development of urban fiction, which increasingly reflected current debates about women's presence in the city.
