James Joyce revisited by Richard F Peterson( Book )

3 editions published between 1992 and 1999 in English and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A towering presence in modern literature, James Joyce continues to exert an enormous influence over the writers who have come after him. Generally accepted as the most experimental and daring writer of the twentieth century, Joyce's innovations in the form and content of the novel have not been superseded. If Ulysses is the most influential novel of the twentieth century, Finnegans Wake continues to be the most challenging work in prose fiction in the English language. In James Joyce Revisited, Richard F. Peterson goes back to the classroom in search of those aspects of Joyce's work that make him most accessible and interesting to students. After the early chapters follow his career from the lyrical impulses of Chamber Music and the scrupulously crafted stories of Dubliners, the later chapters track Joyce through his greatest achievements: Ulysses, his mock-epic of modern life, and Finnegans Wake, his inquiry into the night world and dream language of human existence. There is a full discussion of all the major as well as the minor works and a final chapter that conducts its own inquiry into the gigantic presence of Joyce in modern literature and criticism. This book brings up to date biographical and critical materials, and the secondary bibliography has been expanded, as has the discussion of Stephen Hero. Peterson approaches even the most challenging and complex of Joyce's works with the view that they are readable and that his fiction invites rather than discourages the reader. This volume offers a reliable and reasonably comprehensive starting place for the reader who is coming to Joyce studies early in his or her career, as well as being a helpful source of bibliographical material for the more experienced scholar
The slide : Leyland, Bonds, and the star-crossed Pittsburgh Pirates by Richard F Peterson( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 715 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the deciding game of the 1992 National League Championship Series against the Atlanta Braves, the Pittsburgh Pirates suffered the most dramatic and devastating loss in team history when former Pirate Sid Bream slid home with the winning run. Bream's infamous slide ended the last game played by Barry Bonds in a Pirates uniform and sent the franchise reeling into a record twenty-season losing streak. The Slide tells the story of the myriad events, beginning with the aftermath of the 1979 World Series, which led to the fated 1992 championship game and beyond. It describes the city's near loss of the team in 1985 and the major influence of Syd Thrift and Jim Leyland in developing a dysfunctional team into a division champion. The book gives detailed accounts of the 1990, 1991, and 1992 division championship seasons, the critical role played by Kevin McClatchy in saving the franchise in 1996, and summarizes the twenty losing seasons before the Pirates finally broke the curse of "the slide" in 2013, with their first playoff appearance since 1992"--

A touching biography of the beloved Pittsburgh Pirate Willie Pops Stargell, this life story documents the 21-year, Hall of Fame career of one of the most celebrated and revered players in the history of Major League Baseball. Beginning with his difficult childhood and revealing his encounters with fierce racial hostility while playing minor league ball in the south, this book goes on to show how Stargell became one of the most feared hitters in baseball, a perennial All Star and MVP candidate, and World Series hero. More than a slugging star, Stargella clubhouse leader who was revered for his bursting personality and joie de vivreearned the affectionate nickname Pops during the 1979 season when he began handing out stars to teammates following a good play or game. The stars soon became a symbol of the unity on the Pirates team that went on to win the World Series. This biography also details his life following his playing days: Stargell's coaching career, his struggles with obesity and diabetes, and his lasting legacy that remains relevant to this day. This telling of a dearly loved man with a larger-than-life personality is a must read for any fan of baseball
Growing up with Clemente by Richard F Peterson( )

5 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A post--World War II memoir of a childhood in working-class PittsburghGrowing Up With Clemente is a personal history of the hardscrabble life of Pittsburgh's South Side during the city's post--World War II renaissance. It is also the intimate story of an American boy who played baseball on the city's dilapidated playgrounds and rooted for his beloved sports teams while growing up and struggling in Pittsburgh's blue-collar neighborhoods. Though among the worst professional teams in the 1950s, the Pirates and Steelers still inspired the working-class dream of a life beyond the steel mills. And in the midst of it all was the towering, isolated figure of Roberto Clemente. Clemente would eventually become a symbol of pride, loyalty, courage, and sacrifice for a city that had initially rejected him and for a young boy who spent his youth looking for a hero but had to grow up before understanding Clemente's greatness. With sensitivity and eloquence, Richard Peterson captures a time and place easily overlooked or forgotten but important to understanding the significance of sports in shaping America's working-class character. Whether discussing race, sex, class, or any of the other larger issues of the world in which he grew up, Peterson conveys an honesty rarely found in memoirs. Growing Up With Clemente is an engaging read, sure to be a hit in both the literature and sports communities
