IN QUEST OF A TITLE By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $4.88
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 instead of the childlike melodramatic Dickens?)). This play is by the author of works as diverse as whatever you may crow about.< Less
WITH RIMITTO ALL'S WELL By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $5.84

A statement by a son of Russian Jews (not of Isaac Babel), "Energetic as [Stendhal] is, he cannot match Balzac and Victor Hugo, preternatural demiurges of creativity, and his art is precisely... More > the reverse of Flaubert's painstaking mastery," that the statement can be with equal wisdom, "Energetic as [Shakespeare] is in his 39 plays, he cannot match Lope, preternatural demiurge of creativity who wrote 1,800 plays, and his art is precisely the reverse of Joyce's painstaking mastery." Neither S would have pointed out as one writer does, that the CIA smacks (futile attempt of Cheney that "I'd" do it again, when this thing started much earlier and notwithstanding the implied "Cheney Administration" (Putin to pres. Medvedev)) of the Gestapo and the former employer of Putin, the umbrellaed KGB. And neither has Volterra. ISIS=Indian parliament and N. Korea, America. Its Hemingway dedicated his renowned "O Man and C" to his publishers,but still visible the sentence, "But none of these scars were fresh,"sorry M. Perkins.< Less
WITH RIMITTO ALL'S WELL II By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $4.72
Ships in 3-5 business days
Another drama, with a "grand" cast. This book not for those not realizing that the keenest intellect among musicians was of Mozart, and most inner in the gardener scene, not yet ruing that... More > "Beatles" rock and black white banalities of rap composers black and white and orange are as deeply unintellectual as a roasted cockroach. Differences between homosexual touches and lickings and hetero- are highly exaggerated in the marketplace of false ideas--see that poem--such as (Rushd's satire on Muhamm is praised, not those of homose Jes. by poor someone else, reaction of press O'Reilly, Bsh jr, Bened xvi, Gore, Obama, etc.) the ecstatically repeated headline "Women are from Venus, Men from Mars"--culture at its best if you ask the masses. (Sent2012 to alliterative Cooper and Cooke her films, including "Reshmi Roomal" and "Post Box 999.)Otherwise, I worship Truman, only one to have nuclear bombs dropped on civilians, etc., and the first to recognize Israel.< 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. Added later: the Canadian court has made euthanasia and cannabis humanely legal, being opposed there by fascist conservatives, trying to equal the fascist Ob. and Cheney administrations, more interested in limiting citizens as much as they can.< Less

This piece of art was published originally titled "In Quest of a Title". Because its title was clear to the author, but used already by Federico Fellini in "8½", without... More > any relation as to why so called. If continued as originally named the play will seem to be a cousin of Pirandello’s "6 Characters in Search of an Author", grievously worse. The greatest French mind and artist has Fabrice ask the basic question, in regards to one aspect of life, “‘What they call love,’ he went on, ‘can that be just another lie? I feel myself in love, no doubt, as I feel a good appetite at six o’clock. Can it be out of this slightly vulgar propensity that those liars have fashioned the love of Othello, the love of Tancred?”’ Tancred is of course in Tasso, the poet of Italy.< Less
MARY (MOLLY) ROGERS By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $5.08
Ships in 3-5 business days
Close to the date of its publication were sent this and some other books of Volterra as attachments to her, titled, with the message, "Please do not reply, only b/c I am as idiotically shy...

TWO ANTITHETICAL CONTENTIONS OF VANITY, PUNNING By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $7.68
Ships in 3-5 business days
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. To... More > expound PSYCHOLOGY truthfully. Eggzamples, Example, women sadly remain women psychologically, whether in burqa-land or bikini-land. Abstract art is just splotches of paint as banal as flowers, naked women, painted in earlier centuriestimes. Painting is overvalued since it coincided nearly with the science of the Galilean time, and music because of the fifth symphony of Beethoven. Aside from that there is nothing there.< Less
WE, THE NOVELIST By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $33.90
Ships in 3-5 business days
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... More > 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 his dramatic money success. Let's be transparent. Intellectual writing did not exist before Tacitus, nor literary, secular or religious, achievement before Shakespeare. (Cervantes, Molière, Racine are not up to the stature of Milton, who read Shakespeare.) Total lying: Nabokov in interviews writing he only likes films of Laurel and Hardy type comedies; when asked separately, he says, not at all only those but also Dreyer and Clair. Opportunist. As if cinema can compare with literature.< Less
I By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $8.32
Ships in 3-5 business days
The novel in hand was written in 1995, but not published till almost two decades later, and is being republished. By the way, that note on its backcover needs to to revised to, "Humbert Humbert... More > is a cruel and vain wretch who manages to appear 'touching.' That epithet, in its true, tear-iridized sense can only apply to my poor little girl." The character(s) here is/are confounded by the term and idea of being I. It is as fictional as fiction can become. Idiots flock congenially to Foucault as they once did to Freud. About sex, ultimately. The f word.< Less
CHECKMATE: AN ASIAN POEM By VOLTERRA
Paperback: $9.44
Ships in 3-5 business days
This Asian poem very different from what N. Boyle says in the Encyl. Britannica in 2014--"He could be said to stand in the same relation to the culture of the era that began with the... More > 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." That character I is here in this of some interest for he has something of the divine in him in the sense of The Divine Comedy: general precepts and mostly perhaps deciding about fallibly of historical personages. The new thing about this work is so much the fact that the poem will improve in translation.< Less
