Rhapsodies in black : art of the Harlem Renaissance by Rhapsodies in Black: Art of the Harlem Renaissance (Exhibition)( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two influences dominated in the art of early modernism: African art and the vitality of big city life. In Harlem, as in Paris and Berlin, artists were inspired to seek new forms and to collaborate on performances, films, and publications. Rhapsodies in Black speaks across the arts, reaching out from an exploration of the painters and sculptors of the time to consider film, theater, and dance. With contributions by distinguished authors from both sides of the Atlantic, it offers a kaleidoscope of provocative readings, showing that the issues and ideas of the Harlem Renaissance still resonate today

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Magna Carta manifesto : liberties and commons for all by Peter Linebaugh( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This remarkable book shines a fierce light on the current state of liberty and shows how longstanding restraints against tyranny - and the rights of habeas corpus, trial by jury, and due process of law, and the prohibition of torture - are being abridged. In providing a sweeping history of Magna Carta, the source of these protections since 1215, this powerful book demonstrates how these ancient rights are repeatedly laid aside when the greed of privatization, the lust for power, and the ambition of empire seize a state. Peter Linebaugh draws on primary sources to construct a wholly original history of the Great Charter and its scarcely-known companion, the Charter of the Forest, which was created at the same time to protect the subsistence rights of the poor

Poems for the millennium by Jerome Rothenberg( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first volume offers three "galleries" of individual poets - figures such as Mallarmé, Stein Rilke Tzara, Mayakovsky, Pound, H.D., Vallejo, Artaud, Césaire, and Tsvetaeva - along with a sampling of the most significant pre-World War II movements in poetry and the other arts: Futurism, Expressionism, Dada, Surrealism, "Objectivism", Negritude. In the second volume editors Jerome Rothenberg and Pierre Joris have extended the gathering to the present day. In the third volume editors Jerome Rothenberg and Jeffrey C. Robinson bring a radically new interpretation to the poetry of the preceding century, viewing the work of the romantic and postromantic poets as an international, collective, often utopian enterprise that became the foundation of experimental modernism
