Here is the first critique of modern Hebrew literature to examine the vital concept of place through which we learn about some of the pressing concerns and issues of contemporary Israelis. This book focuses on six novels in which characters leave Israel but then return, manifesting the tension between home and abroad in the dialectics of outside and inside. This allows the authors to use place on a thematic as well as a structural level. Thus, Europe often assumes a metaphoric, or, alternatively, a metonymic function. Places may also be presented by contrasting their analogous descriptions or their social and cultural aspects. Finally, place may be used to analyse the soul, for external place images can reveal the inner reaches of the psyche.

Julia has left home. She has gone to Italy. She has left her lover, her job, her flat, the closely-knit group of friends who meant so much to her. Why? And the motley group of ex-pats she finds in Verona, the Oxbridge brigade, the revolutionary Scot, the cool Canadian, the feminist Flossy - why do they find it so impossible to return home, as if their very identities depend somehow on this thousand-mile displacement? Centred around a love story full of twists, turns and revelations, Home Thoughts explores a world of lost directions, wavering commitments and misplaced ambitions as Julia's adventurous departure confronts her more mercilessly than ever with the problem of what on earth she is to do with her life.

A unique window on an extraordinary life lived with tremendous zest, discrimination, and intelligence The Duchess of Devonshire is the youngest of the Mitford siblings, the famous brood that includes the writers Nancy and Jessica. Like them, she has lived an unusually full and remarkable life, and like them she has an inimitable expressive gift. In Counting My Chickens, she has gathered extracts from her diaries and other writings to create a multifaceted portrait of her life at Chatsworth, the home of the Dukes of Devonshire, that is pithy, hilarious, wise, and always richly rewarding. Under the Duchess's inspired supervision, Chatsworth has become one of England's most frequently visited great houses, welcoming over 400,000 visitors a year. The Duchess reveals what it takes to keep such an establishment alive and prospering, tells of transporting a goat by train from the Scottish island of Mull to London, discusses having her portrait painted by Lucian Freud, and provides rich reminisces of growing up a Mitford--along with telling anecdotes about friends from Evelyn Waugh to John F. Kennedy. From Tom Stoppard's adoring Introduction to the author's meditation on the beauty of Elvis Presley's voice, COUNTING MY CHICKENS offers continuous surprise and delight.

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,0, University of Vienna (Institut für Anglistik & Amerikanistik), course: Literature Course - Blockbuster Poetry, language: English, abstract: “Home-Thoughts, from Abroad” was written in about 1845 and appeared in Browning’s collection Dramatic Romances and Lyrics. In 1844, before its publication, “Browning felt himself in need of a change, a trip to southern Italy to complement his visit in 1838 to northern Italy, where he had found artistic renewal” (Ryals 201). So Browning had already spent some time in Italy, which later became his second homeland, before writing this poem. Thus, the longing for England expressed in it is very likely to result from a biographical impetus and therefore gains in sincerity. Taking this biographical context into account, one might immediately have the impression that “Home-Thoughts, from Abroad” represents an expression of patriotic “loyalty” (Ryals 212). In order to substantiate this claim, it is necessary to take a closer look at it, and examine how Browning turns his feelings of longing, homesickness and nostalgia into a concrete poetic act.
