            Robert Louis Stevenson: A Biography

            'In short, McLynn's is a much more conventional literary biography, and those devoted to that genre will find it exemplary.' Booklist Review Robert Louis Stevenson is most famously remembered as the author of 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.' But the life of the writer was as extraordin...ary as some of his creations. Having grown up in Scotland, Stevenson was shaped by the experiences of his childhood: Calvinism, strained family relations and persistent ill health. These themes would carry on throughout his short life, and be reflected in his novels. In efforts to escape his deteriorating health, combined with a genuine love of adventure, Stevenson took up residence all over the globe, most notably in Samoa where he spent his final years. Much of Stevenson's literary ideas were sparked from his travels, seeing him embark on adventurous missions in order to produce work. The acclaimed biographer Frank McLynn offers a thoroughly detailed insight into the life and times of Stevenson, drawing attention to his genius and the era he wrote in. The curtain is drawn back, so we are able to glimpse the private life of Stevenson, as husband and father. The book also addresses the writer's public life and the impact of his novel's on a Victorian mindset, which his works helped to challenge and shape. This comprehensive biography of Robert Louis Stevenson will appeal to fans of both history and literature alike. Frank McLynn is a British author, biographer, historian and journalist. He is noted for critically acclaimed biographies of Napoleon Bonaparte, Robert Louis Stevenson, Carl Jung, Richard Francis Burton and Henry Morton Stanley. He is also the author of Fitzroy Maclean and Bipolar, a novel about Roald Amundsen, published by Sharpe Books. Praise for Frank McLynn: 'Excellent ... entertaining.' The Spectator 'The definitive biography.' TLS 'Does much to explain the contradictory accounts left to us of the man.' London Review of Books 'Frank McLynn's achievement ... is to give Charles

            Some of the essays in this volume have ap-peared in recent numbers of various periodicals. The essays on Mark Twain and Thomas Har-dy were originally printed in the North American Review; those on Mrs. Ward and Rudyard Kip-ling, in the Forum; those on Alfred Ollivant, Bjoernstjer...ne Bjoernson, and Novels as a Univer-sity Study, in the Independent. The same maga-zine contained a portion of the present essay on Lorna Doone, while the article on The Teach-er's Attitude toward Contemporary Literature was written for the Chicago Interior. My friend, Mr. Andrew Keogh, Reference Librarian of Yale University, has been kind enough to prepare the List of Publications, thereby increasing my debt to him for many previous favours.

            The Titan is a novel by Theodore Dreiser, completed in 1914 as a sequel to his 1912 novel The Financier. Both books were originally a single manuscript, but the narrative's length required splitting it into two separate novels.Dreiser's manuscript of The Titan was rejected by Har...per & Brothers, publisher of The Financier, due to its uncompromising realism; John Lane published the book in 1914.The Titan is the second part of Dreiser's Trilogy of Desire, a saga of ruthless businessman Frank Cowperwood (modeled after real-life streetcar tycoon Charles Yerkes). The third part of the trilogy, The Stoic, was Dreiser's final novel, published in 1947 after his death.

            Freud and Shakespeare: A Lost Expedition

            Sigmund Freud based his psychoanalytic theory of the Oedipus complex partly on his reading of the play, Hamlet, conjecturing that William Shakespeare's conflicted feelings about his family had influenced the play's portrayal of Prince Hamlet's psycho-sexual conflicts about his fa...mily. Later in life, however, Freud decided that the play had not been written by an actor and businessman from Stratford-on-Avon, as is traditionally believed, but by a nobleman named Edward de Vere who had adopted William Shakespeare as a pseudonym. One result of this, Freud thought, was that psychoanalytic theory might have to be modified, perhaps transformed, to fit a changed identity for the world's greatest author. Edward de Vere had a very different life than William Shakspere's (as the actor's name was usually spelled), and Freud thought de Vere's life reflected and elucidated the plays and poems much more than the actor's life. Would a different life and personality for Shakespeare reveal new and different things about the human mind? This book examines Freud's and Shakespeare's works to address that question. In particular, it looks at the relationship between Freud's ideas about the conscious and unconscious mind, and Shakespeare's ideas about man and nature in his works with wilderness settings, including the long narrative poem, Venus and Adonis, and the plays, Titus Andronicus, As You Like It, Timon of Athens, The Winter's Tale, and The Tempest. Shakespeare writes about animal minds as well as human ones, but they didn't play a part in Freud's psychological ideas, although, as a Darwinian evolutionist, Freud believed that the human mind had originated from animal minds, not from divine creation. So Shakespeare's insights into non-human life might indeed have changed Freud' ideas significantly.

            Livro anteriormente publicado como Andreas , de Alexandre de Souza Mattos .Andreas tornou-se uma persona invisivel. Ao decidir me comunicar com o leitor na primeira pessoa, assumindo minha identidade, rebaixei meu outrora personagem principal a mero coadjuvante: presente no titul...o, prologo e posfacio... mas ausente da historia. Andreas, no entanto, habita cada linha deste livro. Cada um dos seis capitulos descreve, ainda que subliminarmente, como seria o seu mundo. Haveria uma brisa suave e continua, como a brisa de outono. O sol, sempre obliquo, resvalaria em nossas peles sem ferir nossos olhos. Talvez como na Finlandia... ou Punta del Este, Uruguai. Haveria uma trilha sonora com playlists surpreendentes. As mulheres seriam misteriosas o suficiente para que nos apaixonassemos por elas, mas tambem previsiveis o bastante para podermos marcar encontros. Caezinhos de estimacao nunca morreriam de cancer. Os bichos viveriam em esplendorosa harmonia. A cadeia alimentar seria apenas um conto de terror, a desaparecer para sempre no incendio de uma antiga biblioteca assombrada. Inexistiriam os elementos imediatistas do universo, tais como as explosoes, o acucar e o sexo. No lugar das bombas, movimentos em camera lenta. Ao inves de acucar, um dulcor permanente dos alimentos. Em vez de sexo, o fitar hipnotico dos olhos. Nossos projetos seriam todos factiveis. O cinema cederia lugar a um teatro onipresente, com cenarios ao mesmo tempo reais e fantasticos, onde os atores interpretariam a si mesmos... Talvez este livro seja uma tentativa de contato, um grito literario com o intuito de conectar-me novamente a minha persona, meu alter ego. Ao longo da vida, somos esporadicamente envolvidos por momentos magicos. Beleza e misterio se unem para entorpecer os sentidos, mostrar-nos que ha algo alem da razao pura, do calculo frio, das certezas cientificas. Estou convencido de que, ao buscar algum rumo para nossas existencias, e nos momentos magicos que deveremos procura-lo. O mundo nao t

            J'ai connu Marie Lou au mois de mars 2018, notre projet a debute en octobre et c'est termine en decembre 2019. Pendant un peu plus d'un an, semaine apres semaine, elle m'a confie une partie de sa vie. Il est de bon ton d'imaginer les travailleuses du sexe comme etant soit des dro...guees, des delinquantes, des moins que rien, en un mot des victimes, n'importe quoi pour nier la realite de la baise publique. Grace au Web, des femmes extraordinaires sont sur le marche, elles connaissent les besoins de l'homme et l'acceptent savamment sans complexe, nombreuses sont celles qui s'appliquent pour en faire un art, tel des actrices du porno. Certaines personnes font les degoutes et m'haissent et d'autre apprecie la realite que je decris, comprenne l'injustice salissante pronee par la morale mythologique de la triade monotheiste. Marie Lou a decide de defier l'horrible tabou, elle aime son metier et veut qu'on le sache, elle parle on nom de toute celles qu'elle connait, qui n'auraient pas ose se devoiler publiquement. Selon elle il faut la bonne attitude pour etre prostituee, soit etre heureuse, libre et sans frustrations, profiter des bien fait de la vie, sa jeunesse, sa beaute, avec plein d'hommes a ses pieds et pleine d'argent de surcroit. J'aime l'aventure J'ai 64 ans, je me suis diplome en droit a l'age de 39 ans, auparavant j'etais chauffeur de taxi de 21 ans a 32 ans et eut la chance de connaitre le marche du sexe des ma jeunesse.
