With this volume, Francis Tenny makes Gloom in the Country available in English for the first time, along with its sequel, Gloom in the City, and the compelling companion piece Okinu and Her Brother. Together these stories demonstrate the range of Sato's style and weave together a number of his themes: the contrast between eternal nature and the finite person, the quest for aesthetic and spiritual balance, the lyric articulation of the interior life, the dislocation of the individual from nature and society. With sinuous linguistic grace, Sato's delineation of the modern sensibility draws from great works of Western literature and the classical traditions of Japan and China. This trilogy thus forms a window into the heart of the Japanese individual, torn between dream and reality, between tradition and the modern world, between introspection and action. For its elegant depiction of the modern human condition, The Sick Rose will appeal to sensitive readers everywhere.

The Sick Rose

Typical of Lee’s later literature, this story uses the theme of sex as a means to critique what he saw as a hypocritical sense of morality in Korean society.

“The Sick Rose,” published in Samcheonli munhak (Three Thousand Li of Literature) in 1938, is the first of two short stories that Lee Hyoseok names using the title of a poem in English. This one, of course, is named after a poem by William Blake. The other is “Leaves of Grass” titled after Walt Whitman’s seminal collection. Both short stories borrow themes from the poems they are named after. In the case of “The Sick Rose” the theme is prostitution and the venereal disease that can accompany the practice. Typical of Lee’s later literature, this story uses the theme of sex as a means to critique what he saw as a hypocritical sense of morality in Korean society.

As part of the Literature Network, Chris Beasley presents the full text of the poem entitled "The Sick Rose." This poem was written by the English poet and mystic William Blake (1757-1827).

Poetry. Bilingual Edition. Translated from the Spanish by Arturo Mantec�n. "This is the final collection of Spanish poet Leopoldo Mar�a Panero (1948-2014): the 'incomplete fish that he carries in his hand', a coda to a body of work that took up where Nietzsche, Baudelaire and Mallarm� put down their pens. Panero's experiment is to relentlessly perform the authority of discourse: 'I will say the same thing in another way' his challenge to the philosophers of our time, revealing Panero as the most radical thinker of his generation. The self-consuming paradox of discourse, trapped in all its wild beauty within 'the systemizing blue of the page', is here ably translated by Arturo Mantec�n." —Andrew Faraday Giles Arturo Mantec�n is a poet who has translated the work of Leopoldo Mar�a Panero in two previous volumes: My Naked Brain (Swan Scythe Press) and LIKE AN EYE IN THE HAND OF A BEGGAR (Editions Michel Eyquem, 2013). He is currently translating the work of the Spanish writer Francisco Ferrer Ler�n.

Isobel Keenan is researching a wartime connection between her late grandmother and a young woman Betsy Unwinton who reputedly disappeared from the women's internment camp on the Isle of Man in 1940. Her research leads her to the autobiography of a seventeen- year old Austrian refugee, Josef Kronfeld, who describes a romantic relationship with Betsy. His autobiography explains how he came to arrive in England as a Kindertransport refugee. However, Josef's autobiography falls short of revealing the connection between Betsy and Isobel's grandmother. This remains a mystery Isobel still wants to resolve. Meanwhile, Isobel has own local race discrimination problems to deal with and the storylines begin to merge.

Winner of the ESSE (European Society for the Study of English) Book Award for Literature 2006 Literature and the literary have proved singularly resistant to definition. Derek Attridge argues that such resistance represents not a dead end, but a crucial starting point from which to explore anew the power and practices of Western art. In this lively, original volume, the author: considers the implications of regarding the literary work as an innovative cultural event, both in its time and for later generations; provides a rich new vocabulary for discussions of literature, rethinking such terms as invention, singularity, otherness, alterity, performance and form; returns literature to the realm of ethics, and argues the ethical importance of the literary institution to a culture; demonstrates how a new understanding of the literary might be put to work in a 'responsible,' creative mode of reading. The Singularity of Literature is not only a major contribution to the theory of literature, but also a celebration of the extraordinary pleasure of the literary, for reader, writer, student or critic.

The Sick Rose is a novel about how Jim Fields finds a decent life in sobriety. The story is about Jim's relationship with Art Montaigne. It is their interaction which gives energy to the novel. Jim is about 40 years of age and working at a lumberyard. He's overqualified, but due to his illness, he lacks confidence. His true passion is playing jazz guitar. Art Montaigne is 70, a Morgan Freeman lookalike. He's been sober a long time. Jim and Art meet at a soup kitchen where Jim is volunteering and Art is enjoying free grub. It comes out slowly that Art is also an artist - a writer whose experimental ideas get interwoven into the novel. What these two have in common is their affiliation with Alcoholics Anonymous. The subplot is Larry Levy and his wife Valerie, who is looking for her estranged father. These two plot lines converge eventually. There are 22 chapters in total. I've tried to give each chapter a unique feel and form - almost like a series of connected short-stories.Some of the chapters are inside an actual AA Meeting. Others are in New York at the Levy household. Still others are in Arizona at the soup kitchen run by Sister Ann Marie and Ruth. Conversation here is lively.There are of course a few minor characters that are important, but it's not a Russian saga where the reader will need to make a spreadsheet to keep the characters straight. I've done my best to make the book readable and entertaining. It's character-based fiction.The story comes together in the end, but not without sacrifice. There is redemption for Art, but Jim takes a hit.

Rethinking Milton’s "Paradise Lost", William Blake examines ‘innocence’ and ‘experience’ in this beautiful collection. "Poems of William Blake" combines three classic books of his essential poetry. In "The Book of Thel", Blake tells the story of Thel who wanders from her home in the Vales of Har to the underground realm of the dead. In the deceptively simple and lyrical "Songs of Innocence" and its counterpoint "Songs of Experience", Blake further explores this dichotomy, juxtaposing poems such as "The Lamb" and "The Tyger", and "The Blossom" and "The Sick Rose". William Blake (1757-1827) was an English poet, painter and printmaker, largely unrecognized in his own lifetime, but now widely acclaimed as a major figure in the history of the poetry and art of the Romantic Age. His major works include "Songs of Innocence", "Songs of Experience", "The Book of Thel", and "Milton: A Poem"
