Tales of Terra Ocean Long before the distant past, Earth was an organic whole without form and void。 A divine goddess named Pan Gu separated Earth from Heaven to form Terrestrial continents。Once every sixty six thousand six hundred and sixty six year, a disastrous scourge would be brought upon this land。 Floods, drought, famines, earthquakes and disease epidemics spread through out Earth。 Four Sages walked across the continents and discovered the myth of contrary forces, which were interconnected and interdependent in the dynamic natural cycle。 Relying on absorbing the spirits of sun, moon, fire, water, wind and earth, an animating force was formed within beads which could summon the catastrophic destruction brought upon land but also able to preserve the existence of mankind。 Weapons were forged with spiritual beads, passed down through generations and were dubbed 「Eternal Summoning Weapons of the Ancient」。 As the plot progresses throughout this book, readers will be able to browse inside an ordinary youngster’s extraordinary journey, retroactively entering the chronological time warp of paranormal summoning monsters, and witnessing a new era of fantasy stories。 This book guarantees an unprecedented scale in the classical Chinese literature。A literature of fantasy moniker 「Tales of Terra Ocean」

'Ulysses' is a novel by Irish writer James Joyce. It was first serialised in parts in the American journal 'The Little Review' from March 1918 to December 1920, and then published in its entirety by Sylvia Beach in February 1922, in Paris. 'Ulysses' has survived bowdlerization, legal action and bitter controversy. Capturing a single day in the life of Dubliner Leopold Bloom, his friends Buck Mulligan and Stephen Dedalus, his wife Molly, and a scintillating cast of supporting characters, Joyce pushes Celtic lyricism and vulgarity to splendid extremes. An undisputed modernist classic, its ceaseless verbal inventiveness and astonishingly wide-ranging allusions confirm its standing as an imperishable monument to the human condition. It takes readers into the inner realms of human consciousness using the interior monologue style that came to be called stream of consciousness. In addition to this psychological characteristic, it gives a realistic portrait of the life of ordinary people living in Dublin, Ireland, on June 16, 1904. The novel was the subject of a famous obscenity trial in 1933, but was found by a U.S. district court in New York to be a work of art. The furor over the novel made Joyce a celebrity. In the long run, the work placed him at the forefront of the modern period of the early 1900s when literary works, primarily in the first two decades, explored interior lives and subjective reality in a new idiom, attempting to probe the human psyche in order to understand the human condition. This richly-allusive novel, revolutionary in its modernistic experimentalism, was hailed as a work of genius by W.B. Yeats, T.S. Eliot and Ernest Hemingway. Scandalously frank, wittily erudite, mercurially eloquent, resourcefully comic and generously humane, 'Ulysses' offers the reader a life-changing experience. Publisher : General Press

The book explores the philosophical thinking of Petrarch and Boccaccio in contrast to the writings of contemporary mendicants. Examining both Latin and vernacular works, it investigates how these humanists poetically express the temporal, subjective, and emotional quality of moral sensibility, in a way that shifts to the reader the weight of discerning the ethical message. The book centers its analysis on a series of paradoxes pondered by these humanists: the self that changes yet persists over time; the awareness of self-deception; the individual's validation of authority; and the ethics of pleasure. This study is valuable to those interested in Renaissance philosophy, literature, religion, and the history of ideas.

ROMANZO BREVE (59 pagine) - STORICO - Volterra, marzo 1291. L'arrivo a Volterra di una seconda Sacra Scheggia è causa di gravi disordini tra i frati Domenicani e Camaldolesi. Dopo la morte di un frate Domenicano, il Podestà chiede al capitano del popolo, Amerigo Narbona, di svolgere l'indagine. Riuscirà quest'ultimo a ricostruire l'intrigo? Ubaldo da Solaio viene ucciso nella cattedrale di Santa Maria Assunta. Il podestà, Ranieri degli Ubertini, affida l'incarico ad Amerigo Narbona, il capitano del popolo, di svolgere un'indagine sull'omicidio. La morte del frate Domenicano può essere ricondotta alla disputa avvenuta tra i frati Domenicani e Camaldolesi, dopo l'arrivo a Volterra di una seconda Sacra Scheggia. Il vescovo Pagano Monteforti però, non ama le ingerenze comunali, soprattutto nelle questioni ecclesiastiche. L'alto prelato preferisce dirimere le faccende in proprio; come ha fatto con le due sacre reliquie provenienti dalla croce di Gesù, sottoponendole alla prova del fuoco. Ma la cerimonia troppo ardita ha scatenato, sia l'ira di Ranieri degli Ubertini, sia quella di buona parte del popolo Volterrano. Amerigo Narbona, chiamato a risolvere l'intrigo, dovrà lottare sino alla fine per avere ragione dell'assassino. Giorgio Simoni è di Pomarance, Pisa. Nel 2010 il racconto "Oltremare" vince il Premio Il Salmastro città di Follonica e viene pubblicato nella raccolta "Di mare e di vento", Del Bucchia editore.

Since World War II, Italy has struggled to recast both its colonial past and its alliance with Nazi Germany. For many years, pervading much intellectual and public discourse was the contention that, prior to the great influx of racialized migrants in the mid-1980s, and with the exception of the Fascist period, there simply was no race (racialized others, racist intolerance, etc.) in Italy. Vital Subjects examines cultural production - literature, sociology and public health discourse, and early film - from the years between Unification and the end of the First World War (ca. 1860 and 1920) in order to explore how race and colonialism were integral to modern Italian national culture, rather than a marginal afterthought or a Fascist aberration. Drawing from theorizations of biopolitics - a term coined by political theorists from Michel Foucault to Giorgio Agamben, Roberto Esposito, and numerous others to address how the life and productivity of the population emerges as a distinctively modern political question - the book repositions discourses of race and colonialism with regard to post-Unification national culture. Vital Subjects reads cultural texts in a biopolitical key, arguing that the tenor of racial discourse was overwhelmingly positive, focusing on making Italians as vital subjects--robust, vigorous, well-nourished, and (re)productive.

Charles Bernstein has described conceptual "poetry pregnant with thought." Against Expression, the premier anthology of conceptual writing, presents work that is by turns thoughtful, funny, provocative, and disturbing. Editors Craig Dworkin and Kenneth Goldsmith chart the trajectory of the conceptual aesthetic from early precursors such s Samuel Beckett and Marcel Duchamp through major avant-garde groups of the past century, including Dada, Oulipo, Fluxus, and language poetry, to name just a few. The works of more than a hundred writers from Aasprong to Zykov demonstrate a remarkable variety of new ways of thinking about the nature of texts, information, and art, using found, appropriated, and randomly generated texts to explore the possibilities of non-expressive language.
