Resurrection From The Underground

Author : René Girard

In a fascinating analysis of critical themes in Feodor Dostoevsky’s work, René Girard explores the implications of the Russian author’s “underground,” a site of isolation, alienation, and resentment. Brilliantly translated, this book is a testament to Girard’s remarkable engagement with Dostoevsky’s work, through which he discusses numerous aspects of the human condition, including desire, which Girard argues is “triangular” or “mimetic”—copied from models or mediators whose objects of desire become our own. Girard’s interdisciplinary approach allows him to shed new light on religion, spirituality, and redemption in Dostoevsky’s writing, culminating in a revelatory discussion of the author’s spiritual understanding and personal integration. Resurrection is an essential and thought-provoking companion to Dostoevsky’s Notes from the Underground.

Gordon Matta Clark Conical Intersect

In this in-depth analysis, Peter Muir argues that Gordon Matta-Clark?s Conical Intersect (1975) is emblematic of Henri Lefebvre?s understanding of art?s function in relation to urban space. By engaging with Lefebvre?s theory in conjunction with the perspectives of other writers, such as Michel de Certeau, Jacques Derrida, and George Bataille, the book elicits a story that presents the artwork?s significance, origins and legacies. Conical Intersect is a multi-media artwork, which involves the intersections of architecture, sculpture, film, and photography, as well as being a three-dimensional model that reflects aspects of urban, art, and architectural theory, along with a number of cultural and historiographic discourses which are still present and active. This book navigates these many complex narratives by using the central ?hole? of Conical Intersect as its focal point: this apparently vacuous circle around which the events, documents, and other historical or theoretical references surrounding Matta-Clark?s project, are perpetually in circulation. Thus, Conical Intersect is imagined as an insatiable absence around which discourses continually form, dissipate and resolve. Muir argues that Conical Intersect is much more than an ?artistic hole.? Due to its location at Plateau Beaubourg in Paris, it is simultaneously an object of art and an instrument of social critique.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “All the Steve Berry hallmarks are here: scale, scope, sweep, history—plus breathless second-by-second suspense. I love this guy.”—Lee Child Former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone wakes to find an intruder in his Copenhagen bookshop: an American Secret Service agent with assassins on his heels. Narrowly surviving a ferocious firefight, the two journey to the secluded estate of Malone’s friend Henrik Thorvaldsen. The wily Danish tycoon has uncovered the insidious plans of the Paris Club, a cabal of multimillionaires bent on manipulating the global economy. But Thorvaldsen also harbors a hidden agenda—a vendetta—that will force Malone to choose between friend and country, past and present. Starting in Denmark, moving to England, and ending up in the storied streets and cathedrals of Paris, Malone is forced to match wits with a terrorist for hire and to plunge into a desperate hunt for Napoleon’s legendary treasure, lost for two hundred years. It’s a breathless game of duplicity and death, all to claim a prize of untold value. But at what cost? BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Steve Berry’s The Columbus Affair and a Cotton Malone dossier. Praise for The Paris Vendetta “Outstanding . . .

It all started with a smell. In Paris, France, during the 1800s, the people living there were starting to get sick. They could not escape the foul smells coming from the cemeteries. The worst cemetery was Saints-Innocents (the Cemetery of Innocents). This cemetery was in the heart of the city next to the central market place. It had originally been a Roman cemetery and the city of Paris grew outwards and around it. It was the oldest and biggest cemetery in Paris. People were buried here in mass graves. Even in the harsh, cold wintertime, you could smell the odor for miles around. In the summertime people caught diseases just by walking past it! To make things worse, the land and water became infected, making Paris’s growing population sicker – and even causing death! There was a very simple reason for what was causing all of this. The cemeteries were too overcrowded. The bodies could not be buried deep enough. Find out what was done to solve the problem, and about the mysterious catacombs that are under the streets of Paris today. Ages 8 and up.
