The End of the World: Apocalypse and its Aftermath in Western Culture by Maria Manuel Lisboa( )

19 editions published between 1900 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,021 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our fear of the world ending, like our fear of the dark, is ancient, deep-seated and perennial. It crosses boundaries of space and time, recurs in all human communities and finds expression in every aspect of cultural production? from pre-historic cave paintings to high-tech computer games. This book examines historical and imaginary scenarios of Apocalypse, the depiction of its likely triggers, and imagined landscapesin the aftermath of global destruction. Its discussion moves effortlessly from classic novels including Aldous Huxley?s Brave New World, George Orwell?s Nineteen Eighty-Four and Margaret Atwood?s Oryx and Crake, to blockbuster films such as Blade Runner, Armageddon and The Terminator. The author also takes into account religious doctrine, scientific research and the visual arts to create a penetrating, multi-disciplinarystudy that provides profound insight into one of Western culture?s darkest and most enduring preoccupations
Paula Rego's map of memory : national and sexual politics by Maria Manuel Lisboa( Book )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The artist Paula Rego was born in Portugal but has lived in Britain since 1951. In this well-illustrated book, Maria Manuel Lisboa explores the background behind Rego's decision to leave the land of her birth and, in doing so, provides fascinating insights into Rego's persistent portrayal of uneasy and predatory relations between men and women. Looking back over the national, religious and sexual politics of Portugal during Rego's childhood under the shadow of the Salazar dictatorship and subsequently, Lisboa locates the origins of the artist's preoccupation with power and powerlessness, violence and abuse within the political and ideological status quo of Portugal, past and present. Lisboa's clear and thoughtful analysis offers an ambitious contribution to the study of patriarchy, Catholicism and Fascism and their expression in the work of this artist."--Jacket

A heaven of their own : heresy and heterodoxy in Portuguese literature from the eighteenth century to the present by Maria Manuel Lisboa( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religious conflict has existed for as long as humanity has been capable of articulating the experience of faith. Belief in a higher power - whatever its nature - has tended to go hand in hand with the desire to force, or at least persuade, the rest of the world to agree with the believer. Portugal is a country shaped by successive waves of occupation over the centuries, and by the religious transformations these have entailed. Indigenous Lusitanians and Celtiberians withstood invasions by the Romans, Visigoths and North African Moors, as well as visitations by Jews, Phoenicians and others, but all were eventually killed, driven out or obliged to convert to Christianity. This book investigates texts dating from the eighteenth century to the present and set in periods ranging from the third century BC to the present day, in which the encounter between Paganism, Judaism and Islam, on the one hand, and what in due course became the dominant Christian status quo, on the other, illustrates the former's resistance to absolute erasure. The study focuses in particular on women as the locus of dissent at the heart of national and sexual politics
