Bohemianism is a way of life, a state of mind, an atmosphere. It is not a trend, its a timeless movement. It is about living beyond convention. BOHEMIAN MANIFESTO explores and joyfully celebrates the creativity, the originality, and the splendor of a lifestyle and spirit shared by free-thinking, free-living artists, poets, writers, sculptors, musicians, and intellectuals. This is the first book to distill and categorize all the ingredients of Bohemian life. In a witty and engaging style, Laren Stover examines the contents of a Bohemians closet, bathroom, and bookshelf. She explains the allure of absinthe, why it isnt wise to leave a Bohemian unattended in your home--you could return to find nude nymphs painted on your lamp shades--and how to identify what type of Bohemian you might be.

Conversation With A Skeleton

Author : Edward Fisher

Genre : Poetry

Edward Fisher's first collection of poems, Conversation with a Skeleton, is a haunting, meticulously-crafted tour de force. At once passionate and lyrical, it is both a lament for, and defense of, a lost Bohemia. In it, he plumbs the depths of a mood of disquietude, defiant in the face of certain trends in American culture—its unchecked militarism, its imperial propaganda, and the corporate colonization of consciousness— all of which show little sympathy for poets, and tend to marginalize, dismiss, or even steer them toward martyrdom. Here are sleepless nights, oedipal anxieties, a psychological exploration of writers' block, a disturbing look at our epidemic of missing and exploited children, a melancholy meditation on black-holes, the atomic age and the extinction of species, along with homages to a pantheon of dead poets who dominate his sensibilities and style. At home in both free verse and more traditional form, Fisher does not shy away from the challenges posed to modern practitioners by meter and rhyme. These are moments of vision and witness that dare to stare unflinchingly into the existential abyss—the dilemma of ourselves in the midst of a world at the brink, in all its tragic, tortured dimensions.

Revisioning Beckett

Author : S. E. Gontarski
ISBN : 9781501337642
Genre : Literary Criticism

Revisioning Beckett reassesses Beckett's career and literary output, particularly his engagement with what might be called decadent modernism. Gontarski approaches Beckett from multiple viewpoints: from his running afoul of the Irish Censorship of Publications Acts in the 1930s through the 1950s, his preoccupations to "find literature in the pornography, or beneath the pornography,†? his battles with the Lord Chamberlain in the mid-1950s over London stagings of his first two plays, and his close professional and personal associations with publishers who celebrated the work of the demimonde. Much of that term encompasses an opening to the fullness of human experience denied in previous centuries, and much of that has been sexual or decadent. As Gontarski shows, the aesthetics that emerges from such early career encounters and associations continues to inform Beckett's work and develops into experimental modes that upend literary models and middle-class values, an aesthetics that, furthermore, has inspired any number of visual artists to re-vision Beckett.

We All Want To Change The World

Author : Tom Waldman

We All Want to Change the World provides a cogent and fascinating evaluation of post-World War II American commercial music and its complex, multi-faceted impact on the world of politics. Tom Waldman offers articulate and compulsively readable insights into such issues as: John Lennon and Yoko Ono's fiercely political period and its decidedly mixed effect on both of their careers and the causes they championed; the violence that erupted over the Sex Pistols' performance of "God Save the Queen" at Her Majesty's Silver Jubilee; Ronald Reagan's misinterpretation of "Born in the USA"; popular song and feminism and gender issues in the political sphere; the recent trend of rock tunes being reworked as campaign songs, such as Fleetwood Mac's "Don't Stop," and Sam and Dave's "Dole Man"; and much more. There is also extensive commentary on the events of September 11th, when many of the biggest names in the history of rock music took part in two benefits to raise money for the victims' families and to lift the spirits of the country.

Anleitung Zum M Iggang

Tom Hodgkinson weiß, warum selbstvergessene Angler die größten Karpfen fangen. Er weiß, wie sich die Bürotoilette umfunktionieren läßt, um einen kurzen Mittagsschlaf zu ermöglichen. Und er weiß, dass René Descartes sein »cogito ergo sum« nicht am Schreibtisch, sondern im Bett erdacht hat. Hodgkinson ist nämlich Chefredakteur der Zeitschrift »The Idler« und damit Experte für alles, was mit dem Schlaraffenleben zu tun hat. »Anleitung zum Müßiggang« ist gleichzeitig eine liebevoll recherchierte Kulturgeschichte und eine praktische Anleitung zum Müßiggang. Und natürlich ist ein Buch, das zur Faulheit aufruft, unweigerlich politisch: Eine Gesellschaftskritik, die, obgleich amüsant und ironisch überspitzt, durchaus ernstgenommen werden will. Hodgkinson tritt für mehr Produktivität durch entspanntere Arbeit ein und plädiert für einen gelassenen Umgang mit der Arbeitslosigkeit. Er hat ein Herz für Streiks, für Träumer, Absinth und Walter Benjamin. Von Konsumkapitalismus, Weckern und protestantischer Pflichtethik á la Thomas Edison hingegen hält er nichts. Hodgkinsons Buch ist eine Fundgrube für kuriose Zitate und Anekdoten aus der Geistesgeschichte. Er führt Lessing und Dr. Johnson ebenso ins Feld wie vergessene viktorianische Humoristen und obskure Punkmusiker, und das alles, ohne je die chronologische Struktur des Buchs aus den Augen zu verlieren. Die folgt nämlich den Stunden des Tages, die, eine jede für sich, besondere Herausforderungen an den Faulenzer stellen: Das morgendliche Aufstehen (oder Nicht-Aufstehen), die Frühstückspause, das lange Mittagessen, das Pfeiferauchen, das Trinken - sogar Mond und Sternen ist ein eigenes Kapitel gewidmet, bis dann im Morgengrauen der letzten Kapitel wieder die Vögel zwitschern.
