WIth full-color illustrations throughout From the best-selling author of Sexual Personae and Break, Blow, Burn and one of our most acclaimed cultural critics, here is an enthralling journey through Western art´s defining moments, from the ancient Egyptian tomb of Queen Nefertari to George Lucas´s volcano planet duel in Revenge of the Sith. America´s premier intellectual provocateur returns to the subject that brought her fame, the great themes of Western art. Passionately argued, brilliantly written, and filled with Paglia´s trademark audacity, Glittering Images takes us on a tour through more than two dozen seminal images, some famous and some obscure or unknown-paintings, sculptures, architectural styles, performance pieces, and digital art that have defined and transformed our visual world. She combines close analysis with background information that situates each artist and image within its historical context-from the stone idols of the Cyclades to an elegant French rococo interior to Jackson Pollock´s abstract Green Silver to Renée Cox´s daring performance piece Chillin´ with Liberty. And in a stunning conclusion, she declares that the avant-garde tradition is dead and that digital pioneer George Lucas is the world´s greatest living artist. Written with energy, erudition, and wit, Glittering Images is destined to change the way we think about our high-tech visual environment. From the Hardcover edition.
As they dazzle all the men at Queen Victoria´s jubilee ball, Beth and Milly Goodwin seem to be mirror images of one another: beautiful, graceful and rich, they can take their pick of any man in St Helens. Only those who know them best realize that Milly´s dark brown eyes hide a wild, untamed wantonness, while Beth´s silvery-grey ones betray her idealism and kindness. But the only man in the room either of them wants is the one who could destroy both their lives. Hugh, sixteenth Lord Thornley, is a rake who needs to marry an heiress to restore the fortune his father gambled away. Even a lowly daughter of a glass manufacturer will do - provided she is biddable and strong and willing to bear the son he needs. Beth, he decides, will make him the perfect wife. But it is Milly who traps him into a loveless marriage - and sets in motion a chain of events that could destroy everything they hold dear.
Este volumen, dividido en dos partes, se propone indagar a un poeta español cuya lectura resulta imprescindible para conocer una de las voces sobresalientes del grupo del 50, todos ellos diversos y muchos todavía maestros de poetas, como en este caso. Entre la elegía y la celebración; Francisco Brines (Oliva, Valencia, 1932) construye un universo de “emociones pensadas” a partir del cual, en la primera parte de este libro, la autora analiza las alternativas del proyecto creador brineano en dos ejes interrelacionados: sus textos metapoéticos y la dicción “clásica”; que reescribe a antiguos y modernos, ambos trazados desde el “ethos” meditativo de una política poética singular, en la que acuerdan las postulaciones éticas; teóricas y morales del escritor valenciano. “El tiempo es mi cuerpo y mi enigma”; ha dicho Brines, y esas palabras alientan la selección de la Antología de la segunda parte, a través de la cual Marcela Romano nos regala una acertada muestra de una obra inmensa e intensa que los lectores podrán aquí disfrutar.
WHOSE IMAGE ARE YOU? Showing you how to obtain real deliverance, peace and progress in your life, without unnecessarystruggles. By LeFAMCALL (Endtime) Ministries INTRODUCTION The Lord God wants us to know that there is perfect healing and deliverance in the name of Jesus and by His blood. There is great peace, joy, progress, success, restoration for the people of God. But the way we go about seeking these things (deliverance, progress, etc) these days is no longer pleasing to God. We have cast away the simplicity that is in Christ, and have replaced it with the heavy yoke of religion. The free deliverance, which is easy to obtain through Christ, doesn´t seem to be available anymore. It has been replaced with another type of deliverance, a religious deliverance, which is so hard and costly. People pay so much money, do so much fasting, torture themselves so much all in their bid to obtain deliverance. At the end, they are not really delivered! Their problems remain with them, or even get worse. The purpose of this book is to bring us back to the simple and free way of obtaining perfect deliverance in Christ, without all the religious struggles and troubles that men have imposed on us. Those who have tried the simple ways of Christ, which are in this book, are greatly surprised how so quickly God could make things beautiful again in their lives, without extra cost, without struggles. May God use this book to help bring you into the path of perfect deliverance and progress, which He has obtained for us in Christ Jesus.

Las ideas de Flusser provocan sensaciones exquisitas en el pensamiento, cuales letanías, cuando descubrimos una realidad con la que hemos vivido sin darnos cuenta. Se trata de reflexiones reveladoras del estado actual del conocimiento humano y su modo de ilación, pese a que su autor no alcanzo aun a conocer la maduración de la intranet en internet. Como consigna en «Excurso»: «Ojalá que este texto despierte en el lector una experiencia similar, a la vez embriagadora y liberadora, tal como lo ha hecho en el escriba de estas líneas». Como destaca Mauricio Mancilla en el prefacio de la presente obra, «este libro es testimonio de la infatigable pasión y ´oficio´ de Breno Onetto por el arte de la traducción (...), brinda en esta publicación un fino y cuidadoso trabajo, que es fruto de más de diez años dedicado a la traducción y comentario de la obra del pensador checo, lo cual le permite entrar con gran libertad y precisión en el prácticamente inédito entramado de su obra. A la fecha existen pocos libros de Flusser traducidos al español, y este tiene el gran mérito de ser el primero que presenta una visión antológica, que recorre momentos claves de su itinerario intelectual e incorpora diversas temáticas que han formado parte de su reflexión».
