Tagore as Philosophical Voyager: A Critical Study of "Gitanjali"

Author: 

Laxmiprasad, P. V., Ph.D., Department of English, Satavahana University (India)

A multi-faceted creative personality, Rabindranath Tagore is one of the greatest stalwarts of both English and Bengali literatures. He created a Renaissance in India, where people were awakened by the great corpus of creative work produced during the country’s struggle for independence from the British. Tagore was undoubtedly a champion of this literary protest. He produced masterpieces in Bengali literature and later translated them into English.

Jack Foley has been prominent in the San Francisco Bay Area poetry scene since the mid-1980s. The Light of Evening traces the arc of his life since his birth in New Jersey in 1940. Foley has spent his life in the pursuit of ways to continue writing poetry in a world in which the status of poetry has been seriously diminished. This candid autobiography offers a portrait of an artist who has continued to produce experimental as well as traditional work and who created theoretical underpinnings for that work.

The Wound That Will Never Heal: An Allegorical Interpretation of Richard Wagner’s The Ring of the Nibelung

Author: 

Heise, Paul Brian, Internationally Recognized Author and Specialist on Richard Wagner

Credentials: 

Editor of www.wagnerheim.com

Paul Brian Heise’s The Wound That Will Never Heal is an original allegorical reading of Richard Wagner’s epic music drama The Ring of the Nibelung. Heise challenges the standard view that Wagner merely dramatizes the conflict between love and power and demonstrates instead that his greatest work is an allegory exploring humanity’s longing for transcendent value and that quest’s paradoxical establishment of a science-based secular society.

Eco-Literature: Contemporary Discourses

Author: 

D'Cunha, Sr. Candy, Associate Professor of English, Andhra Loyola Institute of Engineering and Technology (India)

Credentials: 

Author of Keys of Life and Ecosophical Vision and Self-Realization in Margaret Atwood’s Prose

Awareness of eco-literature has recalled the central ideology of environmentalism - “to think globally and act locally.” As this volume shows, various tags of contemporary discourse have emerged, including transnational, cosmopolitan, hybridity, diaspora, and generally cultural. These concerns highlight such global environmental problems as biodiversity, climate change, and developing new forms of interconnectedness with local and regional communities. In this context, contemporary discourse becomes of immediate concern in understanding the environmental crisis.

D'Cunha, Sr. Candy, Ken Saldhana, Editors

Credentials: 

Associate Professor of English, Andhra Loyola Institute of Engineering and Technology (India)
Author of Keys of Life and Ecosophical Vision and Self-Realization in Margaret Atwood’s Prose

The study of literature and the environment evokes and promotes this highly original eco-critical collection and its contributions to evaluating the preservation of nature and human attachment and to situate it at a local, communitarian, or bio-regional level. Revisiting eco-literature can aid our exploration of numerous global issues and challenges through a literary rendition of the natural world in poetry, fiction, and non-fiction. Reflecting on different works will prompt the readers to intensify their search for viable and effective choices and healthy alternatives in a confusing world.

Eco-Aesthetics: Transnational Perspectives

Author: 

D'Cunha, Sr. Candy, Ken Saldanha, Editors

Credentials: 

Associate Professor of English, Andhra Loyola Institute of Engineering and Technology (India)
Author of Keys of Life and Ecosophical Vision and Self-Realization in Margaret Atwood’s Prose

Eco-criticism, as explored in this volume edited by Sr. Candy D’Cunha, and co-edited by Ken Saldanha, begins with the concept of imagination, in other words, eco-aesthetics through which the power of words, stories, images, essence, and meaning are directly applied to environmental problems that afflict planet earth today. On the other hand, eco-criticism also concurs with the other branches of environmental humanities in the realm of history, ethics, anthropology, religious studies, and humanistic geography, among others.
