Ozu international : essays on the global influences of a Japanese auteur( Book )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Japan and much of Europe, Ozu is widely considered to be one of the finest film directors who ever lived. While Ozu has a strong reputation in the West, his films are not as well-known or widely appreciated in the U.S. as they are elsewhere. A notable exception to this trend is film critic Roger Ebert, who recently wrote that Ozu is one of his "three or four" favorite directors. Also, moving beyond the view that Tokyo Story is a masterful exception in the Ozu canon, Ebert sees Ozu's films as "nearly always of the same high quality." Ozu International will reflect on Ebert's view of Ozu by arguing that this director deserves broader recognition in the U.S., and that his entire canon is worthy of serious study."--Publisher's description

Wordsmith : battle narrative by Dillyn Sprecher( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Graphic novels are an emergent form of literature that combine text and illustrations to present narrative works in a visually engaging display. The following thesis is a graphic novel in the genre of science fiction. It is infused with other fiction genres such as tall tales, fantasy, and mystery as its characters write their own narratives. This thesis draws inspiration from various works, widely spanning from Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales to the Japanese manga, Yu-Gi-Oh!. First, the rich characterization presented in the Canterbury Tales inspired the depth of character development in this creative project. In Wordsmith: Battle Narrative, every character is intended to have an appealing and relatable backstory. Another source of inspiration came from A Contract with God and Other Tenement Stories by Will Eisner. Eisner's work established and popularized the genre of the graphic novel. Furthermore, the genre has continued to be legitimized through important and deep works such as Art Spiegelman's Maus and Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns. In terms of modern works, The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster was also heavily influential to this thesis. Like in The Phantom Tollbooth, in this graphic novel, the characters take skills learned in the classroom and apply them to clearly defined situations within the story. It was necessary that these situations would feel organic despite their fictional undertones. Finally, the Japanese manga, Yu-Gi-Oh!, inspired the concept of using technology and holograms to portray one's ideas. In Yu-Gi-Oh! the holograms display card games; in Wordsmith: Battle Narrative, holograms are used in a writing contest. The main objective of this work is to get struggling students excited about reading and writing. This work introduces and reviews English learning standards by engaging students in an entertaining narrative. This graphic novel was developed as a work to be used in the classroom by a sixth-grade English teacher of struggling readers, many of which are English language learners. A graphic novel is a fitting medium as these students benefit from the use of visual aids, chunked reading, and in-depth study and review of vocabulary words and writing concepts. Challenges arose in the creation process while trying to meet students' needs and incorporate learning standards. Pages would find themselves bloated with too much action or dialogue. Ideas were generated to address learning standards, but were removed from the script because they felt too artificial from a reader's perspective. In addition, the concept of a sustained narrative work of this magnitude also presented its own problems. In early drafts, the thesis seemed to have two competing plots with an undefined central antagonist. To address crowded script pages, pages were drawn out in panels to visually imagine how the finished page would look. This process revealed errors and helped in the overall editing. Instead of just thinking of the graphic novel as a script, consideration began to develop for the work as a completed work. To maintain a consistent plot and rhythm, outlines were created and the necessity of scenes was considered. The result cut several pages of unneeded exposition and addressed the plot. One of the competing plots was restructured and used as a catalyst for another. The significance of this project is to show the importance and utility of the graphic novel in developing literacy in struggling readers. Graphic novels and comic books are underutilized in schools. This project could influence similar works to be used in classrooms to address the needs of students of all ages and backgrounds. While various types of literature are used in the classroom, this graphic novel represents an intentional approach with English learning standards interwoven throughout the work
The crown of madness by Hayden D Bilbrey( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Crown of Madness is a 425 page High-Fantasy novel that follows the power struggles within three different factions: Aarden Hall, the druids, and the Undying. The primary protagonist of the Aarden Hall plotline is a young monster hunter named Lucius. He is thrust into the position of vying for power in a mysterious semi-democratic competition for the Crown of Madness, a crown that grants heightened abilities but slowly turns the wearer mad. Lucius never sought power, yet those around him rally to him all the same. However, the Shadow Counsel seeks to oppose him and take control. In the Druid Wood, Raijin has come of age in his tribe and must complete the bonding ritual with his spirit animal and learn to lead as his father before him. The young druid is uncertain he will bond properly and fears he may become a Wild One, a rival faction of druids who worship a Dark Totem and succumb to their ferocity. The Undying lands are blighted with plague. None but the Undying can live there without suffering the same fate. Aeacus has ruled his people for a very long time, but a new faction arises that worships the demon that cursed them. Aeacus must reassess his leadership and team-up with new allies to regain control of his kingdom. There are several subplots that spawn from these primary plots, these include: a reincarnated seer who seeks the leader of Aarden Hall and fights alongside Raijin and his druids on her journey to Aarden; and a young knight who accepts a dangerous job from a mysterious alchemist. Each of these plots follows the main theme of power and how different people handle it. The stories are connected by occasional intersecting characters and a battle with a mysterious dark essence that infects the world around them. The Dark Totem, Crown of Madness, and Aerico the Demon are all interrelated through a link with the shadows of the world
Surrenstrada : for honor by Kenneth Watkins( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The genre of my novel is Fantasy. The subgenre is Weird West. This novel showcases monsters and creatures set in a western world. This book is heavily influenced by high fantasy novels with shades of steampunk. Even though this project is set in a fantasy world, traditional fantasy plays a significant role. The Dark Elf trilogy by R.A. Salvatore influenced the work significantly in form. Christie Golden Arthas book along with her other Warcraft novels influenced plot and characterization. Old western films like The Shootist and television shows like Gunsmoke along with Wagon Train guided the western style. First and foremost objective of the work is to create a compelling story. The second objective is to apply the lessons learned from this university. Surrenstrada: For Honor takes place in its own world. That in itself presents a challenge. Continuity proves challenging because the world needs to be consistent. The first step - create a world that possess a deep history. Things that will never hit the pages but provides the reader with immersion. Questions slow your writing because one always asks, "would that monster be there" or "what is the climate in this area?" The questions never stopped during the writing process. The second challenge of writing this novel was consistency. This challenge sounds easy but proved problematic. Something as simple as the spelling of a character's name. This led to time spent during the editing process. Reading other authors first and foremost proved to be invaluable. Authors like Salvatore, Golden and even Tolkien provided strong influences. These authors gave me insight into form and showed the potential of storytelling in this genre. The other two, despite reluctance to admit, watching westerns all the time as a child. Westerns during my youth displayed a fascinating world of the hero or heroine jumping on a horse riding to confront the villain. Also, the game Dungeouns and Dragons. This gave the lore of fantasy monsters used in this novel. This game is gaining interest with shows like Stranger Things. Surrenstrada: For Honor sub-genre is Weird West. This genre, even though a few works have been done, is relatively open. This work adds to a sub-genre by giving compelling characters, new world and tells a compelling story. The implications of this work shows this genre that creating a world and putting monsters against your heroes is all secondary. Despite being set in a fantastical world, there is always a human element. That is where the story hides
