Download and read online The Interior Circuit in PDF and EPUB Coming off the most successful book of a decorated career—Say Her Name—The Interior Circuit is Francisco Goldman’s timely and provocative journey into the heart of Mexico City. The Interior Circuit is Goldman’s story of his emergence from grief five years after his wife’s death, symbolized by his attempt to overcome his fear of driving in the city. Embracing the DF (Mexico City) as his home, Goldman explores and celebrates the city, which stands defiantly apart from so many of the social ills and violence wracking Mexico. This is the chronicle of an awakening, both personal and political, “interior” and “exterior,” to the meaning and responsibilities of home. Mexico’s narco war rages on and, with the restoration of the Institutional Revolutionary Party (the PRI) to power in the summer’s 2012 elections, the DF’s special apartness seems threatened. In the summer of 2013, when Mexican organized crime violence and death erupts in the city in an unprecedented way, Goldman sets out to try to understand the menacing challenges the city now faces. By turns exuberant, poetic, reportorial, philosophic, and urgent, The Interior Circuit fuses a personal journey to an account of one of the world’s most remarkable and often misunderstood cities.

Download and read online China and the Mongols in PDF and EPUB A common theme linking these papers is that of the interaction of élite and popular traditions, as found in the writings and folktales of Yüan and Ming China. The first studies focus on historical writings, not just as topics of intellectual and cultural history, but as foundations for understanding the sources of that time and seeing how earlier periods were viewed - for example, in the composition of the Liao, Chin and Sung histories at the Mongol-Yüan court in the 1340s. A second cluster examines a number of popular legends in which Mongol and Chinese elements can be seen to mix: the use of a bowshot in choosing a site, as in the story of the founding of Peking; the legends of the foundation of the Ming dynasty; or the image and fictionalisation of the great Ming statesman, Liu Chi.

Download and read online The progress and poetry of the movies in PDF and EPUB In 1925, Vachel Lindsay wrote The Progress and Poetry of the Movies as a sequel to his pioneering Art of the Moving Picture (1915) and a reconsideration of a popular entertainment form that dominated the commercialized leisure of his fellow Americans. Seeking to counter his reputation as a much-traveled "jazz poet," Lindsay offered his services as an arbiter of taste to such influential members of the Hollywood movie colony as Douglas Fairbanks and invited the ordinary spectator to imagine the 1920s photoplay as intimately linked to an emerging hieroglyphic civilization. The present edition of The Progress and Poetry of the Movies, never published in Lindsay's lifetime, contributes to our understanding of the origins of contemporary film studies. The reproduction of family-album photographs and pen-and-ink drawings as well as publicity stills from The Thief of Bagdad, The Covered Wagon, Peter Pan, Monsieur Beaucaire, and Merton of the Movies spotlights the pleasure he derived from visual forms of communication. Lindsay's attempt to recapture public recognition failed, however, and he was unable to secure a stable position for himself in America after World War I.
