Purloined letters : cultural borrowing and Japanese crime literature, 1868-1937 by Mark Silver( )

19 editions published between 1999 and 2016 in English and held by 1,376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study of the detective story's arrival in Japan - and of the broader crosscultural borrowing that accompanied it - argues for a reassessment of existing models of literary influence between "unequal" cultures. Because the detective story had no preexisting native equivalent in Japan, the genre's formulaic structure acted as a distinctive cultural marker, making plain the process of its incorporation into late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Japanese letters. Mark Silver tells the story of Japan's adoption of this new Western literary form at a time when the nation was also remaking itself in the image of the Western powers. His account calls into question conventional notions of cultural domination and resistance, demonstrating the variety of possible modes for cultural borrowing, the surprising vagaries of intercultural transfer, and the power of the local contexts in which "imitation" occurs." "The work begins by analyzing Tokugawa courtroom narratives and early Meiji biographies of female criminals (dokufu-mono, or "poisonwoman stories"), which dominated popular crime writing in Japan before the detective story's arrival. It then traces the mid-Meiji absorption of French, British, and American detective novels into Japanese literary culture through the quirky translations of muckraking journalist Kuroiwa Ruiko. Subsequent chapters take up a series of detective stories nostalgically set in the old city of Edo by Okamoto Kido (a Kabuki playwright inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes) and the erotic, grotesque, and macabre works of Edogawa Ranpo, whose pen-name punned on "Edgar Allan Poe."" "Augmented by a wide array of sources such as tabloid newspapers, popular magazines, literary diaries, and early Japanese essays on the detective story, Purloined Letters will be essential reading for scholars of Japanese and comparative literature, historians of Japanese westernization, students of the globalization of popular culture, and anyone who has ever taken guilty pleasure in reading a crime novel."--Jacket

Tchaikovsky's women ; Fate( Visual )

4 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christoher Nupen's two films about Tchaikovsky. The films "do not use actors to represent the composer but are made entirely of Tchaikovsky's own words and music, plus the words of a few of his closest companions. The result gives an exceptionally intimate picture of the inner landscape of Tchaikovsky's work and artistic preoccupations. ... The first film, Tchaikovsky's women (70:15) looks at the women both in his private life and in his music. In his early years, almost all of his best work was inspired by a deep identification with the plight of his suffering young heroines, an identification so complete that it spilled over repeatedly into his personal life with dramatic consequences, on one occasion leading to attempted suicide. This predilection began, when Tchaikovsky was 24 years old, with Katherina Kabanova in The storm. It continued in full flood with Juliet in Romeo and Juliet, Francesca da Rimini, Odette in Swan Lake and above all, Tatyana in Evgeny Onegin. ... The second film, Fate (85:35), looks at Tchaikovsky's strange relationship with Nadezhada von Meck which was to become the most important attachment of his life, after his mother. It also follows Tchaikovsky's shift from the fate of his young heroines to his increasing concern with the idea of fate as a controlling influence in his own life and as a motivating force in his later symphonies. Just as the fate of his vulnerable, young women had been the key element in his early work, just so did his obsession with the idea of fate become central to what he had to say in Manfred and the last three symphonies. The progression is inexorable and nowhere more evident than in the fatal message of the last movement of his final and greatest masterpiece ..."--Container

Buckling of curved shells with free edges under multi-axis loading by Mark Silver( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Predictions from the theory are compared with experimental results and finite element predictions. In one case the theory predicts a critical axial load knockdown of 40% for a transverse to axial load ratio of 2%. The theoretical predictions over predict the buckling loads by 20 to 50% with the difference being significantly dependent on the buckle shape and shell aspect ratio. Reasons for this discrepancy are discussed.*
