A guest in my own country : a Hungarian life by György Konrád( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When George Konrad was eleven, he, his sister, and two cousins fled to Budapest from the Hungarian countryside the day before deportations swept through his hometown. Ultimately, they were the only Jewish children of the town to survive the Holocaust. A Guest in My Own Country recalls the life of one of Eastern Europe's most accomplished modern writers, beginning with his survival during the final months of World War II to the beginnings of a remarkable career in letters and politics. Offering descriptions of both his private and public life in Budapest, New York, and Berlin, Konrad reflects on his role in the Hungarian Uprising, the notion of "internal emigration"--the fate of many writers who, like Konrad, refused to leave the Eastern Bloc under socialism - and other complexities of European identity. To read A Guest in My Own Country is to experience the recent history of East-Central Europe from the inside."--Jacket

Ritual insults for gluttony and laziness in greek poetic initiations: "theogony" 26 and its echoes (hesiod) by JAMES ANDREW TUCKER( )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation may be regarded as an extended commentary on line 26 of Hesiod's Theogony, which is a string of insults delivered by the Muses to the hapless poet/shepherd: "field-dwelling shepherds, vile objects of reproach, nothing but stomachs." This line is a ritual insult, a part of an initiation ceremony for which we have numerous parallels in the Greek world
