Thirty Years After: New Essays on Vietnam War Literature, Film and Art brings together essays on literature, film and media, representational art, and music of the Vietnam War that were generated by a three-day conference in Honolulu during Veterans Week 2005. This large and extensive volume, the first collection of Vietnam War criticism published since the 1990s, reflects significant cultural and historical changes since then, including U.S.-Vietnamese cultural transactions in the wake of political reconciliation and the Vietnamese diaspora; popular commodification and memorialization of the war in America; and renascent American imperialism. Contributors include well-established and well-published writers and critics like Philip Beidler, Cathey Calloway, Lorrie Goldensohn, Wayne Karlin, Andrew Lam, Jerry Lembcke, Tim O'Brien, John S. Schafer, and Alex Vernon as well as emerging Vietnam scholars and critics. Among other contributions, the volume provides important quasi-bibliographical essays on canonical American and Vietnamese literature and film, African American Vietnam war narratives, Chicano fiction and poetry, and American Vietnam war art music as well as essays on such subjects as real and digital war memorials, Vietnamese popular war songs, and Vietnamization of the Gulf War. Teachers, scholars, and the general public will find Thirty Years After a valuable guide to ongoing critical discussion of the most important event in American history between 1945 and 9/11.I highly recommend this book. Although it is almost a cliche say the Vietnam War has left deep and lingering scars on American society-Thirty Years underscores the still traumatic cultural legacy of this conflict. Attuned to the divergent voices and genres of representation--Thirty Years is an indispensable work, not only for literary scholars, but for anyone seeking to understand the enduring impact of the Vietnam War. An impressive work, Mark Herbele is commended for organizing such an insightful and gracefully written set of essays. G. Kurt Piehler, author of Remembering War the American Way.

This volume is a collection of studies on the issue of authorship in translation. Leading translation scholars and professional translators discuss the theoretical implications and applicability of the author-translator paradigm. The relationship between translators and authors is addressed in its various manifestations, from the author-translator collaboration, to self-translation, to authorial practices of translating. While offering multiple perspectives, in terms of both theoretical approaches and cultural backgrounds, the volume offers an important and original contribution to the current debate.

Licia ha 53 anni, vive sola in una casa dell’Ente Case di Ferrara dove ancora è ammalata e lotta ogni giorno per sopravvivere. Dopo aver cominciato a scrivere la sua storia come terapia, sotto consiglio della sua dottoressa, si è ritrovata a pensare che la sua testimonianza sarebbe stata una fonte di riflessione e un forte spunto di conoscenza. Perché i depressi non sono dei matti, come molti dicono, sono persone che vogliono essere semplicemente aiutate. Lei, che di queste persone ne ha conosciute tante, troppe, sa che molte, troppe, non vengono aiutate. In questo libro Licia racconta la sua infanzia infelice in collegio, senza una vera famiglia e senza un padre, la sua giovinezza trascorsa alla perenne ricerca di un qualcosa che le desse una esistenza serena, mentre si impelagava in diversi guai, poi il matrimonio, che sembrava perfetto, e l’attesa spasmodica di un figlio che non arrivava e che a un certo punto smise di ricercare, infine, per cause infinite, il sopraggiungere della depressione in forma grave, di cui ancora oggi si sa ben poco, e sulla quale c’è scarsa informazione. Nel frattempo Licia ha tentato due volte il suicidio, ha debellato un tumore al seno, ha lasciato suo marito e con una forza straordinaria sta cercando di riappropriarsi della sua vita. Con la voglia di scaricare dalle spalle tutto il peso che si porta da anni, dopo tante sofferenze e delusioni, dopo interminabili momenti angosciosi e distruttivi, tante sofferenze arrecate ai suoi cari, e a se stessa, dopo venticinque sedute di radioterapia e con la sua pastiglia al giorno che deve prendere per cinque anni, i controlli che vanno seguiti con regolarità, è qua e questa è la sua vita.
