LAMENT FOR DEMOCRACY AND OTHER ESSAYS By John Cooke
Paperback: List Price: $15.00 $12.00 | You Save: 20%
Prints in 3-5 business days
The essays in this volume are, at first sight, a curiously varied assortment. Written solely for personal pleasure, without intention or expectation of publication, many have long lain forgotten,... More > gathering digital dust over many years. Except for those covering aspects of Balinese culture and history, they possess no unifying theme to justify inclusion. They range from the semi-academic to the frivolous, from the serious to the trivial. One essay explores an unexpected connection between narcissism and travel, another considers possibilities of life in the hereafter. Art and Disability is discussed next to atomic weapons, high crimes and nuclear misdemeanors. A comic village dispute in the depths of rural France is juxtaposed against the dramatic discovery of a new-found family uncovered by untangling threads of DNA. It is manifestly a strange collection, offered without excuse or apology in the hope that readers may perhaps find something to interest or amuse.< Less

Certain Personal Matters is an 1897 collection of essays selected by H. G. Wells from among the many short essays and ephemeral pieces he had written since 1893. The essays in Certain Personal... More > Matters are written from a consistent first-person perspective, but only one describes an identifiable event in Wells's life—how he responded to being diagnosed with tuberculosis in the fall of 1887. The other essays adopt the playful persona of an aspiring young writer living in modest circumstances with a wife, Euphemia, who is only sketchily and obliquely described. Their tone reflects the demands of the market in London magazines for "short essays, or short stories, often with a twist, which can be read in half a dozen minutes, but which will pique a reader's attention and ultimately allow him to think, 'How true. I have done that myself', or to make some similar remark." More than half of the essays are humorous social satire; serious subjects are addressed only ironically.< Less
