Book DescriptionA study of how Spanish playwrights have exploited classical mythology over the centuries Within the rich tradition of Spanish theater lies an unexplored dimension reflecting themes from classical mythology Through close readings ofselected plays from early modern and twentieth-century Spanish literature with plots or обэаи characters derived from the Greco-Roman tradition, Michael Kidd shows that the concept of desire plays a pivotal role in adapting myth to the stage in each of severalhistorical periods In Stages of Desire, Kidd offers a new way of looking at the theater in Spain Reviewing the work of playwrights from Juan del Encina to Luis Riaza, he suggests that desire constitutes a central element in a large number of Greco-Roman myths and shows how dramatists have exploited this to resituate ancient narratives within their own artistic and ideological horizons Among the works he analyzes are Timonedas Tragicomedia llamada Filomena, Castros Dido y Eneas, and Unamunos Fedra Kidd explores how seventeenth-century playwrights were constrained by the conventions of the newly formed national theater, and how in the twentieth century mythological desire was exploited by playwrights engaged in upsetting themelodramatic conventions of the entrenched bourgeois theater He also examines the role of desire both in the demythification of prominent classical heroes during the Franco regime and in the cultural critique of institutionalized discrimination in the current democratic period Stages of Desire is an original and broad-ranging study that highlights both change and continuity in Spanish theater By elegantly combining theory, literary history, and close textual analysis, Kidd demonstrates both the resilience of Greco-Roman myths and the continuing vitality of the Spanish stage.

Book Description“I did not want to fail, because the stakes were too high After all, I was after nothing less than the secret of human harmony ” The challenge that bestselling author Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson set for himself was formidable: to create a true interspecies peaceable kingdom within his own household He hoped to learn if several огиэр different species–some, natural enemies–raised together from an early age could live peacefully side by side So he took into his home sevenyoung animals–a kitten, a rabbit, two rats, two chickens, and a puppy–and set about observing the whole process of socialization (or non-socialization) from the very beginning The initial results were mixed Tamaiti, the kitten, made herself instantly comfortable, but Hohepa, the Flemish giant rabbit, remained inscrutably reserved Kia and Ora, the rats, slept all day and became active at night Moa and Moana, the Polish frizzle chickens, bonded with each other but to no one else Mika, the stray pup, barked much too much But as the hours and days passed in this never-before-attempted environment, the animals began to change in startling ways, as Masson wondered which animals would bond, and which would recoil from one another? Can animals, including humans, truly change when direct experience tells them it’s safe to do so? Would the experiment end in triumph, or in tragedy? Raising the Peaceable Kingdom poses universal questions we’ve all had about relationships, social strife, and peaceful coexistence In its intimations of the potential for planetary harmony, this elegantly written book is a work of major significance As a unique account of life in an interspecies community, it offers unmitigated enchantment, joy, and delight.

Book Description _ Bird flight has always intrigued mankind This book provides an up to date account of our existing knowledge on the subject, as well as offering new insights and challenging someestablished views A brief history of the science of flight introduces the basic physical principles governing aerial locomotion A treatment of flight-related огиюж functional morphology concentrates on the difference in shape of the arm and hand partof the wings, on the structure and function of tails, and on the shape of the body The anatomy and mechanical properties of feathers receive special attention Aerodynamic principles used by birds are explained in theory by simply applying Newton'slaws, and in practice by showing the direction and velocity of the attached flow around an arm wing cross section and of the leading edge vortex flow above a hand wing The Archaeopteryx fossils remain crucial in our understanding of the evolution ofbird flight despite the recent discovery of a range of well-preserved ancient birds A novel insight into the interactions between wings and air challenges established theories relating to the origin of bird flight Take-off, flapping flight, gliding and landing are the basic ingredients of bird flight, and birds use a variety of flight styles from hovering to soaring Flight muscles consisting of mosaics of specialized fibers are the engines that generate the force required to keep the wings and tail in the gliding configuration and perform work during flapping motion The energy required to fly can be estimated or measured directly, and a comparison of empirical results provides insights into the trend in metabolic costs of flight of birds varying in shape and mass from hummingbirds to albatrosses.

Whose Muse? : Art Museums and the Public Trust артикул 892a.
Book Description During the economic boom of the 1990s, art museums expanded dramatically in size, scope, and ambition They came to be seen as new civic centers: on the one hand as places of entertainment, leisure, and commerce, on the other as socially therapeutic institutions But museums were also criticized for everything from elitism to looting обэап or illegally exporting works from other countries, to exhibiting works offensive to the public taste Whose Muse? brings together five directors of leading American and British art museums who together offer a forward-looking alternative to such prevailing views While their approaches differ, certain themes recur: As museums have become increasingly complex and costly to manage, and as government support has waned, the temptation is great to follow policies driven not by a mission but by the market However, the directors concur that public trust can be upheld only if museums continue to see their core mission as building collections that reflect a nation's artistic legacy and providing informed and unfettered access to them The book, based on a lecture series of the same title held in 2000-2001 by the Harvard Program for Art Museum Directors, also includes an introduction by Cuno and a fascinating--and surprisingly frank--roundtable discussion among the participating directors A rare collection of sustained reflections by prominent museum directors on the current state of affairs in their profession, this book is without equal It will be read widely not only by museum professionals, trustees, critics, and scholars, but also by the art-loving public itself.

Eating Stone : Imagination and the Loss of the Wild артикул 332b.
Book DescriptionAn inspired reflection on the bond between wild creatures and the human imagination, told as a chronicle of four seasons with a band of rare desert bighorn sheep Among the steep cliffs of Utah’s canyonlands a band of rare desert bighorn sheep simply vanished Although the word “extinct” was bandied about, their passing seemed огиьы to fit the downward spiral of native wildlife in the Southwest that began in the early twentieth century Remote, isolated, and elusive, this band slipped through the cracks The bighorns were gone Then they came back We have allowed ourselves few places and scant ways to witness other species in their own world, Ellen Meloy writes, an estrangement that has left us lonely and spiritually hungry Now, with generous empathy and wry humor, the award-winning author of The Anthropology of Turquoise describes the mystery of the bighorns’ self-rescue In the role of an “amiable, nosy neighbor,” Meloy matches her seasonal geography to theirs, observing cycles of breeding and birth, predators and death, the exquisite match of animal to place, of blood and bone to a magnificent redrock canyon On backcountry hikes, downriver floats, and travels to Mexico, the Great Basin, and the Chihuahuan Desert, Meloy roams the rugged habitat of these intriguing and precarious natives Throughout, we revel with her in the air, light, and dazzling colors of the high desert Most of all, we come to understand why she finds that watching wild animals intensely is very much like prayer.

Animal Signals (Oxford Series in Ecology and Evolution) артикул 340b.
Book Description Why are animal signals reliable? This is the central problem for evolutionary biologists interested in signals Of course, not all signals are reliable; but most are, otherwise receivers of signals would ignore them A number of theoretical answers have been proposed and empirical studies made, but there still remains a considerable огиюз amount of confusion The authors, one a theoretician the other a fieldworker, introduce a sense of order to this chaos A significant cause of confusion has been the tendency for different researchers to use either the same term with different meanings, or different terms with the same meaning The authors attempt to clarify these differences A second cause of confusion has arisen because many biologists continue to assume that there is only one correct explanation for signal reliability The authors argue that the reliability of signals is maintained in several ways, relevant in different circumstances, and that biologists must learn to distinguish between them In this book they explain the different theories, give examples of signalling systems to which one or another theory applies, and point to the many areas where further work, both theoretical and empirical, is required.
