Hideyoshi and Rikyū by Yaeko Nogami( )

5 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nogami Yaeko's compelling novel of political intrigue in sixteenth-century Japan depicts the intertwined lives of two iconic historical figures. Toyotomi Hideyoshi rose through the ranks from a common foot soldier to become the military ruler of Japan but struggled to win respect among the cultured nobility. He found both a friend and an invaluable political advisor in Sen no Rikyū, Japan's most respected tea master. A wealthy merchant in his own right, Rikyū's talent for tea ceremony propelled him into the ruler's court. Deftly balancing Hideyoshi's love of ostentatious display with the ideals of simplicity and rusticity embodied in the way of tea, Rikyū commands respect from loyal students and court nobles alike"--Amazon.com

Hideyoshi and Rikyū by Yaeko Nogami( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Hideyoshi made a strangled noise, words stifled by his rage. ... [He] flew down from the dais, the toes of his gold brocade socks flashing over ten green grass mats in a second. Soji's body was kicked from the corridor like a ball, hitting the stepping stone and rolling into the garden. ... At the time, Rikyū was still in the tearoom, and knew nothing about it. On his way to see Hideyoshi, to inform him that the tea gathering had concluded successfully, Ōmura Yūki intercepted him and whispered urgently in his ear. But by that time, Soji's head was already separated from his torso, lying in the corner of the stone wall."--Chapter 12Nogami Yaeko's compelling novel of political intrigue in sixteenth-century Japan depicts the intertwined lives of two iconic historical figures. Toyotomi Hideyoshi rose through the ranks from a common foot soldier to become the military ruler of Japan but struggled to win respect among the cultured nobility. He found both a friend and an invaluable political advisor in Sen no Rikyū, Japan's most respected tea master. A wealthy merchant in his own right, Rikyū's talent for tea ceremony propelled him into the ruler's court. Deftly balancing Hideyoshi's love of ostentatious display with the ideals of simplicity and rusticity embodied in the way of tea, Rikyū commands respect from loyal students and court nobles alike. As the story opens, the two men are several years into their friendship, and tensions have begun to build. Hideyoshi pursues his quest to unify Japan, and his ego grows with every victory. Rikyū watches his friends exiled and pardoned according to Hideyoshi's whims and longs for freedom from the excess and intrigue of court life. Nogami explores the dynamic politics of conquest, the delicate connections of the human soul, and the power of speech and silence in her elegant psychological portrait of two powerful men

This short work contains a series of passages on division and conflict from the writings of Emanuel Swedenborg.

La satire politique et la liberté de la presse au 19e siècle = political satire and freedom of the press in 19th century France by Morgan Beard( )

1 edition published in 2019 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

For my thesis, I chose to investigate the history of the satirical press in France, with a special emphasis on caricature and political satire. I was inspired to do so after seeing the massive reaction in France to the 2015 Charlie Hebdo shooting. I was fascinated by the passion that the French people had for such a violently political and often offensive sect of the press. Through my research, I discovered the answer. For almost a century, the French people fought to instate a republican government in their country. As new governments rose and fell, the freedoms of expression, assembly, and the press were most closely linked to the struggle for popular representation. Censorship came and went several times over the course of the 19th century and each time it returned, the satirical press was the first to feel its effects. As a result, this sarcastic and caustic area of journalism became almost a symbol of those freedoms they were fighting for; not because the French always agreed with what they said, but because their right to say what they wanted was at the heart of the issue. The pioneers of satire in the 19th century gave way to a new generation in the 20th, starting with Le Canard enchaine (which is still thriving today) and soon Hara-Kiri, the predecessor to Charlie Hebdo

When tragedy strikes : lessons from Emanuel Swedenborg( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In moments of pain or loss--when faced with personal tragedies like disease or the loss of a loved one, or larger-scale events like destructive natural disasters--faith can become a struggle. Why would a loving God allow evil and suffering to exist in the world? How can we find the good in a difficult situation? Swedenborg's answers invite us all to reflect and enter into a deeper partnership with the divine
