The Ballad of Bloody Sunday, Derry, 30 January 1972 by Book Resume:

It is an inalienable instinct as old as the stars that a people have right to their land ... Ireland holds the dubious distinction of being Britain’s oldest colony. ‘The Ballad’ is a narrative poem dedicated to Ireland and its people and tells the story of this troubled land under English, then British colonial rule from the 12th century until ‘Bloody Sunday’, drawing on allegory and mythology. A poem for every Irishman, woman and child, at home or abroad, past and present, the lost generations of the future. Ernest M. Keeling is a British citizen, married to a Belgian citizen. Myriam, his partner of twenty-two years has her family and work still in Belgium, wherefore he is domiciled there. He is a former student of the UK Arvon Foundation, but his real mentors are the poetry greats – Neruda, Lorca; from Ireland - Louis MacNeice, Patrick Kavanagh, Austin Clarke, Michael Hartnett, Thomas Kinsella, to name but a few. One of his early influences was Canadian poet / novelist Anne Michaels. He has been writing poetry for about twenty years but ‘The Ballad’ is his debut in print. To this extent he is a new voice on the poetry scene though he has occasionally engaged in poetry readings in Britain over the years. His poetry is rooted in his working-class / socialist background - his raison d’être in relation to his writing and day-to-day life. During the Apartheid era he worked for the African National Congress between 1985-1992. It was his hope to play whatever small part he could in bringing democracy to South Africa. In his considered view, the presidency of Nelson Mandela was followed by successive incompetent / corrupt administrations which failed to deliver on the ideals of the ‘Freedom Charter’ which, apart from political freedom, envisioned a society based on social justice and an egalitarian economic order. He regards the massacre of miners at Marikana on 16 August 2012 as reminiscent of Sharpville and Soweto. At the time of going to press he is compiling a second book of poems which explore inter alia, his views / experiences around his time in Africa as well as the situation in the post-Apartheid South Africa.

Death in Contemporary Popular Culture by Adriana Teodorescu,Michael Hviid Jacobsen Book Resume:

With intense and violent portrayals of death becoming ever more common on television and in cinema and the growth of death-centric movies, series, texts, songs, and video clips attracting a wide and enthusiastic global reception, we might well ask whether death has ceased to be a taboo. What makes thanatic themes so desirable in popular culture? Do representations of the macabre and gore perpetuate or sublimate violent desires? Has contemporary popular culture removed our unease with death? Can social media help us cope with our mortality, or can music and art present death as an aesthetic phenomenon? This volume adopts an interdisciplinary approach to the discussion of the social, cultural, aesthetic, and theoretical aspects of the ways in which popular culture understands, represents, and manages death, bringing together contributions from around the world focused on television, cinema, popular literature, social media and the internet, art, music, and advertising.

The Screen Music of Trevor Jones by David Cooper,Ian Sapiro,Laura Anderson Book Resume:

The first significant publication devoted entirely to Trevor Jones’s work, The Screen Music of Trevor Jones: Technology, Process, Production, investigates the key phases of his career within the context of developments in the British and global screen-music industries. This book draws on the direct testimony of the composer and members of his team as well as making use of the full range of archival materials held in the University of Leeds’s unique Trevor Jones Archive, which was digitized with support from the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Through a comprehensive series of chapters covering Jones’s early career to his recent projects, this book demonstrates how Jones has been active in an industry that has experienced a prolonged period of major technological change, including the switchover from analogue to digital production and post-production techniques, and developments in computer software for score production and sound recording/editing. This is a valuable study for scholars, researchers and professionals in the areas of film music, film-score production and audio-visual media.

The Wrong Country by Gerald Dawe Book Resume:

This engaging, personal chronicle by Irish poet Gerald Dawe explores the lives and times of leading Irish writers, including W.B. Yeats, Elizabeth Bowen, Samuel Beckett and Stewart Parker, alongside lesser-known names from the earlier decades of the twentieth century, such as Ethna Carberry, Alice Milligan, Joseph Campbell and George Reavey. It also portrays the changing cultural backgrounds of the author’s contemporaries, such as Derek Mahon, Eavan Boland, Eileán Ní Chuilleanáin, Colm Tóibín, Leontia Flynn and Sinéad Morrissey. Gerald Dawe presents an accessible view of modern Irish literature, filtered perceptively through his own distinctive lens, and raises important questions about cultural belonging, the commercialisation of contemporary writing, and the influence of Irish literary culture in a digital age. In this lyrical exploration of national identity, The Wrong Country repositions our understanding of modern Irish writing in a wider context for today’s readers.

Anglophone Literature in Second-Language Teacher Education by Justin Quinn,Gabriela Kleckova Book Resume:

Anglophone Literature in Second Language Teacher Education proposes new ways that literature, and more generally culture, can be used to educate future teachers of English as a second language. Arguing that the way literature is used in language teacher education can be transformed, the book foregrounds transnational approaches and shows how these can be applied in literature and cultural instruction to encourage intercultural awareness in future language educators. It draws on theoretical discussions from literary and cultural studies as well as applied linguistics and is an example how these cross-discipline conversations can take place, and thus help make Second-language teacher education (SLTE) programs more responsive to the challenges faced by future English-language teachers. Written in the idiom of literary scholarship, the book uses ideas of intercultural studies that have gained widespread support at research level, yet have not affected literature–cultural curricula in SLTE. As the first interdisciplinary study to suggest how SLTE programs can respond with curricula, this book will be of great interest for academics, scholars and post graduate students in the fields of applied linguistics, L2 and foreign language education, teacher education and post-graduate TESOL. It has universal appeal, addressing teaching faculty in any third-level institution that prepares language teachers and includes literary studies in their curriculum, as well as administrators in such organizations.

Performing Metaphoric Creativity across Modes and Contexts by Laura Hidalgo-Downing,Blanca Kraljevic Mujic Book Resume:

The creative potentiality of metaphor is one of the central themes in research on creativity. The present volume offers a space for the interdisciplinary discussion of the relationship between metaphor and creativity by focusing on (re)contextualization across modes and socio-cultural contexts and on the performative dimension of creative discourse practices. The volume brings together insights from Conceptual Metaphor Theory, (Critical) Discourse approaches to metaphor and Multimodal discourse analysis. Creativity as a process is explored in how it emerges in the flow of experience when talking about or reacting to creative acts such as dance, painting or music, and in subjects’ responses to advertisements in experimental studies. Creativity as product is explored by analyzing the choice, occurrence and patterning of creative metaphors in various types of (multimodal and multisensorial) discourses such as political cartoons, satire, films, children’s storybooks, music and songs, videos, scientific discourse, architectural reviews and the performance of classical Indian rasa.

On Your Knees - Biblical references, Religion and Faith In the songs by U2 by barbara marinello Book Resume:

The songs by U2 can carry many different messages and among them there is a message of Faith and deep religiosity. Looking for a guiding thread from the origins of the band up to now I want to follow up through the songs all the biblical references and, through them, with a personal religious interpretation of the lyrics, I aim to analyse the spirituality of the band and I want to underline how strong and deep is the message that Bono wants to convey us with his lyrics and his music.

View From Mount Diablo: An Annotated Edition by Ralph Thompson,John Lennard Book Resume:

In View from Mount Diablo, Class and racial privilege and the resentments they provoke underscore both turmoil in wider society and the relationships at the heart of the narrative, between Adam Cole, a dreamy white boy driven by personal tragedy to crusading journalism, squint-eyed Nellie Simpson, once a servant, then a political enforcer, and stuttering Nathan, gardener and groom turned cocaine baron. Beyond this trio is a dazzling array of real and fictitious characters. The annotated edition by John Lennard, Professor of British and American Literature at UWI - Mona in Kingston, allows the full scope of the verse-novel to emerge for readers unfamiliar with Jamaican history since the 1930s.

The Lieutenant of Inishmore by Martin McDonagh Book Resume:

'There's more than one way to skin a theatrical cat; and McDonagh's chosen weapons are laughter and gore... Pushing theatre to its limits, McDonagh is making a serious point... a work as subversive as those Synge and O'Casey plays that sparked Dublin riots in the last century' Guardian 'A brave satire... Swiftianly savage and parodic... with explicit brutal actino and lines which sing with grace and wit' Observer Who knocked Mad Padraic's cat over on a lonely road on the island of Inishmore and was it an accident? He'll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland: he loves his cat more than life itself. The Lieutenant of Inishmore is a brilliant satire on terrorism, a powerful corrective to the beautification of violence in contemporary culture, and a hilarious farce. It premiered at the RSC's The Other Place, Stratford-upon-Avon, in May 2001. Commentary and notes by Patrick Lonergan

Seamus Heaney by Richard Rankin Russell Book Resume:

The first detailed introduction to the entirety of Seamus Heaneys workThis study will enable readers to gain clearer understanding of the life and major works of Seamus Heaney. It considers literary influences on Heaney, ranging from English poets such as Wordsworth, Hughes, and Auden to Irish poets such as Kavanagh and Yeats to world poets such as Virgil and Dante. It shows how Heaney was closely attuned to poetry's impact on daily life and current events even as he articulated a convincing apologia for poetry's own life and integrity. Discussing Heaney's deep immersion in Irish Catholicism, this book demonstrates how faith influenced his belief system, poetry and politics. Finally, it also considers how deeply Heaney's artistic endeavours were intertwined with politics in Northern Ireland, especially through his embrace of constitutional nationalism but rejection of physical force republicanism.Key FeaturesIncludes sections on biography, historical, cultural and political contexts, poetry and other genres, as well as a concluding section on primary works and secondary criticismPays special attention to the marriage of form and content in the poetry and how they work together to express subtle shades of meaningOffers close readings of Heaney's canonical poems throughout his career, including the early seminal poems such as Digging, the abog poems, and his many elegies, such as Casualty, Station Island, and ClearancesDraws on drafts of the poems and prose at the Heaney archives at Emory University and the National Library of Ireland

A Journey of Art and Conflict by David Oddie Book Resume:

A Journey of Art and Conflict: Weaving Indra’s Net is a deeply personal exploration of David Oddie’s attempts to uncover the potential of the arts as a resource for reconciliation in the wake of conflict and for the creative transformation of conflict itself. It began when Oddie, seeing the fractured world around him, asked himself what he could do to help; that question set him off on travels around the world, including to Palestine, Kosovo, South Africa, India, Northern Ireland, Brazil, and other places. In each location he met with people with first hand experience of conflict and worked with them to forge artistic networks that have the potential to transform their situation.
