This study shows how, in the nineteenth century, Americans often described and narrated Italy as a way of reflecting on their own country and national identity in genres as various as travel literature, fiction, poetry, and journalism. Indeed, maintains author Leonardo Buonomo, Italy helped the Americans to relativize, if not redefine, the very idea of Americanness. The texts discussed here are James Fenimore Cooper's The Bravo (1831), Henry T. Tuckerman's The Italian Sketch Book (1835), Margaret Fuller's travel letters for The New York Tribune (1847-49), Julia Ward Howe's Passion Flowers (1854), Nathaniel Hawthorne's The Marble Faun (1860), Henry P. Leland's Americans in Rome (1863), and William Dean Howells's Venetian Life (1866). Reading them as both literary and ethnographic documents, Buonomo contends that, although the texts were enjoyed primarily for their poetic vistas and panoramas, they also provided a running commentary on Italian customs and character.

Backward Glances reveals that the passionate love one woman feels for another occupies a position of unsuspected centrality in contemporary Chinese mass cultures. By examining representations of erotic and romantic love between women in popular films, elite and pulp fiction, and television dramas, Fran Martin shows how youthful same-sex love is often framed as a universal, even ennobling, feminine experience. She argues that a temporal logic dominates depictions of female homoeroticism, and she traces that logic across texts produced and consumed in mainland China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan during the twentieth century and the early twenty-first. Attentive to both transnational cultural flows and local particularities, Martin shows how loving relations between women in mass culture are usually represented as past experiences. Adult protagonists revel in the repeated, mournful narration of their memories. Yet these portrayals do not simply or finally consign the same-sex loving woman to the past—they also cause her to reappear ceaselessly in the present. As Martin explains, memorial schoolgirl love stories are popular throughout contemporary Chinese cultures. The same-sex attracted young woman appears in both openly homophobic and proudly queer-affirmative narratives, as well as in stories whose ideological valence is less immediately clear. Martin demonstrates that the stories, television programs, and films she analyzes are not idiosyncratic depictions of marginal figures, but manifestations of a broader, mainstream cultural preoccupation. Her investigation of representations of same-sex love between women sheds new light on contemporary Chinese understandings of sex, love, gender, marriage, and the cultural ordering of human life.

Backward Glances is volume six in the Lynch’s Corner Series. These short stories veer from the preceding five in that they focus on protagonists other than the Lynch-Carr family though there are a few lurking in the list of stories. Previous readers will find “The Fall of Jessup” an interesting conclusion to that flawed person. Others will delight in stories dealing with nuns in the Appalachians, archaeology in Egypt, young lovers groping for the rite of passage, University of Kentucky sports, illegal moonshine, and desperate people facing impossible situations. Some recurring characters visit once more, but for the most part, newer folks emerge and join the LC series. Enjoy.

In her third novel, Sue Dooks revisits scenes from the first two novels of her trilogy, largely set in the Cevennes mountains, as she unravels the untold events that still haunt Rosalind and her lover Matthew and others who were caught up in their story of daring love and unforeseen tragedy. For some characters it seems as if reconciliation to their fate will never be possible but place and myth quietly begin to work their magic and ghosts are laid to rest at last.In the first two novels of her trilogy - The English Girls and L'Hermitage - Sue Dooks shows how the consequences of our actions are never in our control and that to make amends for the forces we may unwittingly unleash will never be easy. In Backward Glances it is once again the power of love and the ability to forgive which brings an acceptance of the past which allows the possibility of a future for her characters.

It was baseball great, Satchel Paige, who said, "Don't look back. Something might be gaining on you." That is good advice if the something is not to your liking. But good things may gain on you too, one of them being faith. In "Backward Glances," Steve and Anne Weihsmann share how faith gained on them and made sense of their Christian walk. The co-authors have observed life and faith from both sides of the church doors. "Bull Moose," "A Computer Renaissance," "Deer Hunting Philosophy," "Good Friday At the Abortion Clinic," "I Don't Wave On the Bridge," "The Parable of the Spark Plug," "Prayer and Plywood," "Wet Cement," "Court Is (Not) In Session," and "Passive-Aggressive Uninstall" are just a few of the eighty-three essays that will amuse, entertain, challenge and encourage you.

Exile And Creativity

A major historical phenomenon of our century, exile has been a focal point for reflections about individual and cultural identity and problems of nationalism, racism, and war. Whether emigrés, exiles, expatriates, refugees, or nomads, these people all experience a distance from their homes and often their native languages. Exile and Creativity brings together the widely varied perspectives of nineteen distinguished European and American scholars and cultural critics to ask: Is exile a falling away from a source of creativity associated with the wholeness of home and one's own language, or is it a spur to creativity? In essays that range chronologically from the Renaissance to the 1990s, geographically from the Danube to the Andes, and historically from the Inquisition to the Holocaust, the complexities and tensions of exile and the diversity of its experiences are examined. Recognizing exile as an interior experience as much as a physical displacement, this collection discusses such varied topics as intellectual exile and seventeenth-century French literature; different versions of home and of the novel in the writings of Bakhtin and Lukács; the displacement of James Joyce and Clarice Lispector; a young journalist's meeting with James Baldwin in the south of France; Jean Renoir's Hollywood years; and reflections by the descendents of European emigrés. Strikingly, many of the essays are themselves the work of exiles, bearing out once more the power of the personal voice in scholarship. With the exception of the contribution by Henry Louis Gates Jr., these essays were originally published in a special double issue of Poetics Today in 1996. Exile and Creativity will engage a range of readers from those whose specific interests include the problems of displacement and diaspora and the European Holocaust to those whose broad interests include art, literary and cultural studies, history, film, and the nature of human creativity.
