WE, THE NOVELIST By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $33.90
Ships in 3-5 business days
DELUXE EDITION (which only means that the image plates are printed in color). A medley and fantasy of non-fictional and fictional prose that may make them become a book whose subtitle is "The... More > Most Subtly Characterized Creature in Literature", with literature in italics. On a perhaps unrelated subject, and not explicitly a theme in the book, would all readers know why Shakespeare did not allow publication of his writings in his lifetime? Supposed to be a writer so high in attitude that his literary works did not interest him for profit making: it is probably, though, that he did not wish for others than his own company to reap the financial boons of Shakespeare's dramatic money success. It was ticket sales domination he sought, unlike Count Tolstoy's and James Joyce's wish for artistic dominance. They came years later.< Less
PSYCHOLOGY LEFT BEST UNKNOWN TO THE INTELLECTUALLY FRAIL By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $7.44
Ships in 3-5 business days
Undoing of the understanding of human psychology as has existed so far, in literature or philosophy or the "scriptures" of various "religions," or poor psychoanalysis, Freud's or... More > his as thought-incapable digressors and followers; William James and inheritors, Lacan and fools. Human nature is very limited, whatever “clinical” psychologists claim. This very short treatise about the whole of the human mind is about as long as it takes to expound psychology, i.e., in less than a hundred pages, because of the extreme limits of discursive writing. Tradition has it that even the author disliked reading this book as much as all other readers did. The present writer notes: as of today a flyer in the mailbox mentioned that if the questions, and which one most, What is the meaning of life?, Is God to blame for our suffering?, What happens when you die? interest you, go t'the Jehovah Witness website, jw.org (TradeMarked).< Less
CHECKMATE: AN ASIAN POEM By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $9.44
Ships in 3-5 business days
Re: this Asian poem published under a different title in 2013, and very different from what N. Boyle says in the Encyl. Britannica in 2014--"In a European perspective he appears as the central... More > and unsurpassed representative of the Romantic movement, broadly understood. He could be said to stand in the same relation to the culture of the era that began with the Enlightenment and continues to the present day as William Shakespeare does to the culture of the Renaissance and Dante to the culture of the High Middle Ages. His Faust, though eminently stageworthy when suitably edited, is also Europe’s greatest long poem since John Milton’s Paradise Lost, if not since Dante’s The Divine Comedy." The character of the poem at hand is “I” and is of some little interest because he has an aspect of the divine in the sense of The Divine Comedy. The new thing about this work is so much the fact that the poem will improve in translation.< Less
A NEW EVENING AT THE THEATER By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $6.40
Ships in 3-5 business days
"Marjorie's Intentions": A brief verse drama that is more joyous and less comic than one in reading or performance may want. A veritable tragedy. The author toyed with titling it... More > "Crass Oppression in Québec", but chose this more telling title. "The Triumphant Defeat Final of the Corsican": A wholly self-contained play from the other. The place is Waterloo, the play is brief, and the characters with speaking lines are all women, to rebound against the thoughts of the centuries, and the play is of the examining class. Then a friendly intermission, followed by four brief plays (Jehovah may be God, so he has to be correct, but MacDonald did review Kurosawa's "Fortress"). A total of six, making it a new evening at the theater.< Less

THE URBANITES By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $4.28
Ships in 3-5 business days
How literature moves altogether by the nationality and ethnicity of the run of the rummed describer: for example, Encyclopedia B. (B- but really C+) in the passage on Shakespeare ("Other poets,... More > such as Homer and Dante, and novelists, such as Leo Tolstoy and Charles Dickens, have transcended national barriers; but no writer’s" (But where is melodramatic Dostoevski (Cf. Professor Harold in a book about that hyper-distinguished book, "Western Cnn": "Certainly the major writers of the West since Dante are...: Chaucer, Cervantes, Montaigne, Shakespeare, Goethe, Wordsworth, Dickens, Tolstoy, Joyce, and Proust.") instead of the childlike melodramatic Dickens?)). This play is by the author of works as diverse as "Checkmate" and "In Quest of a Title".< Less
