Camp Austen: My Life as an Accidental Jane Aust...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A raucous audiobook tour through the world of Mr. Darcy imitations, tailored gowns, and tipsy ballroom dancing  The son of a devoted Jane Austen scholar, Ted Scheinman spent his childhood summers eating Yorkshire pudding, singing in an Anglican choir, and watching Laurence Olivier as Mr. Darcy. Determined to leave his mother’s world behind, he nonetheless found himself in grad school organizing the first ever UNC-Chapel Hill Jane Austen Summer Camp, a weekend-long event that sits somewhere between an academic conference and superfan extravaganza.  While the long tradition of Austen devotees includes the likes of Henry James and E. M. Forster, it is at the conferences and reenactments where Janeism truly lives. In Camp Austen, Scheinman tells the story of his indoctrination into this enthusiastic world and his struggle to shake his mother’s influence while navigating hasty theatrical adaptations, undaunted scholars in cravats, and unseemly petticoat fittings. In a haze of morning crumpets and restrictive tights, Scheinman delivers a hilarious and poignant survey of one of the most enduring and passionate literary coteries in history.  Combining clandestine journalism with frank memoir, academic savvy with insider knowledge, Camp Austen is perhaps the most comprehensive study of Austen that can also be heard in a single sitting. Brimming with stockings, culinary etiquette, and scandalous dance partners, this is summer camp like you’ve never seen it before. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ted Scheinman.

Unfortunately, the trophy brings back terrible memories of the night of the group's trophy-winning performance at the Castle Ballroom. The ballroom's owner was found shot to death. The insurance company called it suicide; his wife insisted it must have been an accident; the town whispered, Murder. Now Lee has a mystery to solve. Before she can take aim at the events of the past, someone turns up murdered in the here and now. Lee needs to keep her eye on the prize and hope the trophy will be the clue to finding the killer-before she ends up as a target herself….

Sara was livid that her computer had failed. She had completely lost Christopher Manning and all his information from her Internet files. A regular subscriber to the Internet server her brother owned, Sara could not post Manning's regular monthly eleven-dollar payment without it totally disappearing before her eyes. When Manning received a bill for 1.1 million dollars, he had to come into her office to clear the matter up. She was attracted to a man for the first time in many years and was devastated when she realized that he was an investigator for the attorney general's office and that that whole thing was set up to get close to her files because she was suspected of computer identity left. Sara would lose much. Her best friend was murdered, another friend was arrested in error, and of course, there was that attraction that quickly turned to love that she knew was impossible. Manning simply took the physical attraction for granted, and for some reason, she went along for the ride. Together they solved the crime and got married. That was when the fun began. Sara discovered her perfect man loved to dance, loved the oldies she played on her piano, and adored shopping. Imagine that, if you will. Christopher Manning turned out to be that perfect man, and they continued to do what they did best-make love and dance. Between them, they found a way to make a living, opening a dance club for those who loved to do ballroom dancing. It was the real McCoy, the real ballroom dancing, not exhibition style. There is a new adventure for them both as they learn about each other. Singing? Who would have thought?

Conversations with Rita Dove
61,90 CHF *

Biography -- Literary Criticism--> In 1993, Rita Dove (b. 1952) became the nation's youngest and first female African American Poet Laureate. This collection of interviews offers a fascinating portrait of her. Having published over a half-dozen collections of poetry, Dove won a Pulitzer Prize in 1987 for 'Thomas and Beulah.' In addition, she has published a novel, 'Through the Ivory Gate,' and her play, 'The Darker Face of Earth,' has been produced on several stages. Unlike many other writers, Rita Dove has no objection to being interviewed, in part because she enjoys reading interviews. Toni Morrison's, for instance, gave Dove her inspiration as a beginning writer. In these conversations that range over a decade and a half, she reveals an extraordinary dedication to preserving the integrity of her art, particularly as others intrude upon her to crusade on behalf of racial and gender issues. Although she regards herself as a feminist and expresses pride in her African American heritage, she leaves crusading outside the door as she enters the writer's workroom. Once inside, she focuses on making each poem stand up to her own exceptionally rigorous standards. In these conversations the reader meets also the Rita Dove who lives outside the poet's workroom. In addition to writing, she plays the viola de gamba, is addicted to crossword puzzles, and has taken lessons in singing and in ballroom dancing. In response to 'What kind of questions are you not asked in interviews that you would like to answer?' she bravely and surprisingly replies, 'Personal questions.' Earl G. Ingersoll is distinguished teaching professor of English emeritus at SUNY College at Brockport. His previous books include 'Conversations with May Sarton' (University Press of Mississippi), 'The Post-Confessionals: Conversations with American Poets of the Eighties' (with Judith Kitchen and Stan Sanvel Rubin), and 'Doris Lessing: Conversations,' among others.

Spirit Singing

Excerpt from the book: Prelude: The Path To The Way Of Song I stepped out onto the large stage in the ornate art deco grand ballroom of a plush downtown hotel in Boston, Massachusetts, where two thousand people were gathering for the opening plenary session of Body & Soul, a weekend conference on health and spirituality. I stood quietly for a few moments, watching the audience settling into their seats, listening to the animated musical tone of their chatter. They were unaware of my presence, the hum of lively conversation occupying their full attention. Taking a few deep breaths, I began preparing internally for the imminent moment when I would begin to sing. I moved forward toward the center of the stage and an energetic force began pouring through me. In response I raised my arms up toward the sky as my first vocal tones began pouring out. The hum in the room instantly subsided, and the focused silence of the audience became a witness to my song. Softly at first, and then with a power that celebrated the passion and creativity of the human spirit, I sang, without words, for a full ten minutes. The feeling in the room was electric. When I finished there was a momentary stillness and then, thunderous applause. Throughout the rest of the weekend, hundreds of people stopped to ask me about 'that song.' 'What was that song you sang?' they asked. 'How did you do that?' Many people said they 'shifted into another reality.' Others asked if my song was Native American or told me, 'I know that song. It's a Hawaiian song, right?' While many people had wildly different ideas about the origins of my song, all of them agreed that it was an incredibly powerful, moving and transforming experience. On some level the audience knew that this was no ordinary piece of music but a song somehow mysteriously imbued with the power and presence of spirit. My history as a singer and musical composer, as well as my longtime love of singing, led me to be standing alone onstage that day. But it was my more recent years of developing, teaching, and performing the SpiritSong technique, a process that celebrates the human connection to spirit through song, for which the conference promoters had hired me. They wanted me to open the conference by singing my own unrehearsed and spontaneous SpiritSong, created in the moment from my own direct connection to spirit. How did I do this? Where did my song come from? And how did I come to sing in this way in front of two thousand people? The truth is that I created my SpiritSong completely in the moment. I became a vessel for the spirit of the song to move through me. Yes, I had sung it, but in reality the song had sung itself through me. While it may have seemed at first as if I was performing, my singing was not a recital in any sense. The audience was moved, not because I sang on key or have a perfectly trained operatic voice, but because they experienced an intimate and natural encounter with SpiritSong. SpiritSong is a method for using our voices as a source of healing. It doesn't matter whether we think we can sing or not, whether we were told at an early age that we couldn't sing on key or in tune, or whether we are experienced singers. There is a process that enables us to open up to our healing spirit through the vehicle of singing and let it pour through us. This process, with practice, is easily accessible to everyone. The power of voice can be used in this way for our own healing and connection to our spirituality as well as for the benefit of others.
