This book was released on 2021-01-01 with total page 291 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: THE WOMAN IN BLACK BY EDMUND CLERICAL BENTLEY Trent's Last Case (US title The Woman in Black) is actually the first novel in which the gentleman detective Philip Trent appears. The novel is a detective story whose unique place in the history of detective fiction is because it is at the same time the first great sentiment of that genre itself: not only does Trent fall in love with a prime suspect - usually considered a no-no - he too, after painstakingly gathering all the evidence, he draws all the wrong conclusions. Convinced that he has tracked down the killer of a business tycoon who was killed in his mansion, during dinner he is told by the real culprit what errors in the logical deduction of the solution to the crime he committed. Hearing what really happened, Trent vows that he will never again attempt to dabble in crime detection. THE WOMAN IN BLACK BY EDMUND CLERICAL BENTLEY As The Woman in Black celebrates thirty years on stage, discover the truly terrifying classic English ghost story behind the play. Arthur Kipps, a junior solicitor, is summoned to attend the funeral of Mrs Alice Drablow, the sole inhabitant of Eel Marsh House. The house stands at the end of a causeway, wreathed in fog and mystery, but it is not until he glimpses a wasted young woman, dressed all in black, at the funeral, that a creeping sense of unease begins to take hold, a feeling deepened by the reluctance of the locals to talk of the woman in black – and her terrible purpose.

Book The Woman in Latin American and Spanish Literature

Download or read book The Woman in Latin American and Spanish Literature written by Eva Paulino Bueno and published by McFarland. This book was released on 2012-04-19 with total page 242 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Noted scholars of Latin American and Spanish literature here explore the literary history of Latin America through the representation of iconic female characters. Focusing both on canonical novels and on works virtually unknown outside their original countries, the essays discuss the important ways in which these characters represent nature, history, race and sex, the effects of globalization, and the unknowable “other.” They examine how both male and female writers portray Latin American women, reinterpreting the dynamics between the genders across boundaries and historical periods. Drawing on recent theories in literary criticism, gender, and Latin American studies, these essays illuminate the women characters as conduits for the appreciation of their countries and cultures.

Download or read book Framing Mary written by Amy Singleton Adams and published by Cornell University Press. This book was released on 2018-04-24 with total page 344 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Despite the continued fascination with the Virgin Mary in modern and contemporary times, very little of the resulting scholarship on this topic extends to Russia. Russia's Mary, however, who is virtually unknown in the West, has long played a formative role in Russian society and culture. Framing Mary introduces readers to the cultural life of Mary from the seventeenth century to the post-Soviet era. It examines a broad spectrum of engagements among a variety of people—pilgrims and poets, clergy and laity, politicians and political activists—and the woman they knew as the Bogoroditsa. In this collection of well-integrated and illuminating essays, leading scholars of imperial, Soviet, and post-Soviet Russia trace Mary's irrepressible pull and inexhaustible promise from multiple disciplinary perspectives. Focusing in particular on the ways in which both visual and narrative images of Mary frame perceptions of Russian and Soviet space and inform discourse about women and motherhood, these essays explore Mary's rich and complex role in Russia's religion, philosophy, history, politics, literature, and art. Framing Mary will appeal to Russian studies scholars, historians, and general readers interested in religion and Russian culture.
