Gender bias in mystery and romance novel publishing : mimicking masculinity and femininity by Anna Faktorovich( )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 714 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gender Bias in Mystery and Romance Novel Publishing examines gender bias from the perspective of readers, writers and publishers, with a focus on the top two best selling genres in modern fiction. It is a linguistic, literary stylistic, and structurally formalist analysis of the male and female sentences in the genres that have the greatest gender divide: romances and mysteries. The analysis will search for the historical roots that solidified what many think of today as a natural division ..."--Back cover
Radical Agrarian economics : Wendell Berry and beyond by Anna Faktorovich( )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a comparative study of Wendell Berry's theory of New Agrarian economics in contrast with other agrarian proposals, as well as communist, capitalist and feudal economic theories. The argument for an agrarian world has both similarities and sharp contrasts with Marxist communism, industrial capitalism, and classic feudalism. Agrarianism can be seen more clearly when it is contrasted and shown as having existed in parallel with each of these stages of economic world development. As the world quickly grows in the direction of overpopulation and pollution, a re-evaluation is needed of the previously used sustainability methods that have kept humanity in balance with the earth for millennia. As resources continue to become scarcer, those who can support themselves independently from mass-agricultural ventures might have a survival advantage. And this advantage should be explored before the world reaches a catastrophic phase. As the American farming population shrinks further below one percent of the overall population, this is a crucial moment to consider if agrarianism and agriculture itself should retain a central role in American political theory or if it should fade into the past. "In strikingly honest terms, Dr. Faktorovich shares a chastened and sincere study of a utopian economics envisioned by a poet of the natural world. With her concluding image of knitting as an act conjuring warmth, nostalgia and consolation, as well as reminding us of the haptic poetry of tactile work, she delivers with picturesque detail and a hint of melancholy, an answer that is deeply true."--Catherine Corman, creator of photography collection, Daylight Noir "I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars. It's a concise, well-written, detailed work of economic history and theory that accomplishes its two goals of situating Wendell Berry and New Agrarianism in history, and considering the practicality of these ideas in the modern world. Faktorovich has indeed written a textbook for the student of agrarian economics, but she has done more: she has crafted an elegant and accessible history of economic thought. Her book is necessary for any reader of Wendell Berry, but also for thoughtful people from all disciplines with an interest in money, time, and the good life."
Research writing about cultural artifacts by Anna Faktorovich( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research writing courses in colleges across the world have a tendency to be dull, and similar to each other. They typically review the elements of the research paper and ask students to draft formulaic papers that fit the set guidelines. There have been plenty of textbooks written for these classes that repeat nearly identical information. This market is definitely over-saturated. One alternative is a Research Writing class that focuses on audio-visual entertainment (such as film or music) and other cultural artifacts, as well as diversity-related topics. This class offers more engaging topics for research than the repeating political or social topics that fit the formula of a traditional college research writing class. Students are likely to be more interested in researching films they watch for fun than dusty topics they are not personally invested in. More colleges are likely to start teaching these types of classes especially with help from textbooks like this one that suits this curriculum. American students are reading less, and watching media more, a class that accepts this shift can embrace the students' preferences, stimulating their imagination and desire to learn. This textbook combines the rigor of a Research Writing class with the imaginative and culturally significant realm of Cultural Studies. Concepts that are typically discussed in Research Writing textbooks, like close reading, thesis statement, and clichés, are covered in full. Complex rhetorical concepts are explained simply and fully. Additionally, the elements of a proper argument are not only digested for students, but are also assisted with discussions of political, economic, social and other types of cultural concepts such as communism or feminism. Teachers who are looking for ideas to inspire their plans, will find assignments across the book to utilize. This book is deliberately short and meant to be a cheap paperback, so that it can be utilized as a quick reference guide and idea book for cultural studies related topics (if not as the primary textbook for a course that entirely combines Research Writing with Cultural Studies)

The history of British and American author-publishers by Anna Faktorovich( )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 651 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The misconception that self-publishing is something only the worst writers do is contradicted by the experience of some of the best wrtiters in western literature, who all were desperate enough to see their great works in print to start their own publishing ventures."--Introduction (page 12)
Road trip by Mary Stone Hanley( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 646 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mary Stone Hanley's debut collection of poems, Road Trip, is a journey at the same time physical, historical, and spiritual. While it travels through the realms of childhood and approaching death, it also plots the way along the road from Civil Rights, to the Black Arts Movement, to avant-garde jazz of the 1960s, and the Black Lives Matter movement of contemporary times. In a stirring section essential to the message of her poetry, the author "translates" John Coltrane's Love Supreme into verse, culminating with a resounding "Thank you, God," spoken in unison by the jazz great and the poet herself. As her passing approaches, the speaker of these poems doesn't flinch at endings: but her affirmations move like her poetry toward openings and possibility. "No matter how the dream may go," she writes in the final poem, "Dialectically Speaking," there is no end/ no last." Road Trip is a journey that disappears into the vanishing point, recognizing along the way that past, future and even existence itself is defined by who is looking and what one chooses to acknowledge. With a clear eye and with the poise and cadence of a master, Mary Stone Hanley guides us to the trail's end, where witness and compassion become the measure of a life--back cover
Sylvana's blues by Stanley McCray( )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Introduction to literature( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Within lies a shakeup of the traditional introductory literature course textbook formula, with a unique perspective on literature. You will find some theories that have not even been published in scholarly journals before, like the examination of the merchants’ language that Swift uses to disguise his meaning. Each of the sections on fiction, drama and poetry provides the most essential commentary, definitions and concepts. The readings include three short stories from Edgar Allan Poe, novel segments from Don Quixote, and Gulliver’s Travels, various poems, and a classic Greek play, Lysistrata. The uniting elements in these pieces are satire, sarcasm, and other forms of humor. This dense political, social and cultural content should inspire students with questions and a desire to write about it

The romances of George Sand by Anna Faktorovich( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Romances of George Sand takes the heroine from a childhood in the aristocracy amidst the Napoleonic Wars, to an unhappy early marriage and eventual divorce, to her careers as a country doctor, pharmacist, lawyer, and most successfully as a romance novelist. This is a story about the revolutions in a woman's heart as she goes through dozens of love affairs. It is also about George's involvement in violent, political revolutions of her time, including the July and June Revolutions and the 1848 Revolution; in the latter, she served as the unofficial Minister of Propaganda. The story is full of military battles, coup d'etat maneuvers, duels, malevolent plots, infidelity, artistic discussions, monumental legal cases, and reflections on the nature of love, family, romance, rebellion, and femininity. The history behind each of the events depicted is researched with biographical precision, but liberty is taken with some events that have been contested by historians, including the lesbian affair George had with Marie Dorval and the identity of the real father of her second child. Students of literature and history will recognize many of the central characters, as George befriended Napoleon I and III, Alexander Dumas pere and fils, Frederic Chopin, Alfred de Musset, and a long list of other notables

Dragonflies in the cowburbs by Donelle N Dreese( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Francesca Butler (?Fresca?) is a 17-year-old girl who lives in what she calls the?cowburbs.? Not quite the country and not quite the suburbs, the cowburbs offer Fresca adventure and room to grow, but also confusion and loneliness. The story is told from the point of view of a smart and sometimes sarcastic teenage girl who struggles to find happiness after the tragic death of her father, the mysterious disappearance of her friend Laurel Dee, and her boyfriend's battle with Internet Addiction Disorder. Fresca loses a friend who dies from inhaling fumes from an aerosol can, and develops a close bond with her best friend, Veronica, who eases her through a case of?textitis? from too much texting. Veronica becomes an inspiring role model for Fresca when she shaves off all of her hair to protest the importance placed on physical attractiveness in their high school. Fresca also depicts a close relationship with her mother, whose?seventh sense? allows her to understand Fresca in intimate ways, but this relationship is challenged when her mother acquires a new boyfriend who doesn't seem to like Fresca, or teenagers in general. With the help of her mom, her friends, and a sense of humor, Fresca discovers that love and happiness are not only possible, but waiting for her amidst a flock of dragonflies
