(P/B) ON THE PLAZA
THE POLITICS OF PUBLIC SPACE AND CULTURE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0076

Friendly gossip, political rallies, outdoor concerts, drugs, shoeshines, and sex-for-sale - almost every aspect of Latin American life has its place and time in the public plaza. In this wide-ranging, multi-disciplinary study, Setha M. Low explores the interplay of space and culture in the plaza, showing how culture acts to shape public spaces and how the physical form of the plaza encodes the social and economic relations within its city. Low centers her study on two plazas in San Jose, Costa Rica, with comparisons to public plazas in the...

(P/B) ONE HUNDRED LOVE SONNETS
CIEN SONETOS DE AMOR (BILINGUAL EDITION)
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0079

"The happiness I feel in offering these to you is vast as a savanna," Pablo Neruda wrote his adored wife, Matilde Urrutia de Neruda, in his dedication of One Hundred Love Sonnets. Set against the backdrop of his beloved Isla Negra, these joyfully sensual poems draw on the wind and tides, the white sand with its scattering of delicate wildflowers, and the hot sun and salty scent of the sea to celebrate their love. Generations of lovers since Pablo and Matilde have shared these poems with each other, making One Hundred Love Sonnets one of th...

(P/B) SCIENCE AMONG THE OTTOMANS
THE CULTURAL CREATION AND EXCHANGE OF KNOWLEDGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0099

Scholars have long thought that, following the Muslim Golden Age of the medieval era, the Ottoman Empire grew culturally and technologically isolated, losing interest in innovation and placing the empire on a path toward stagnation and decline. Science among the Ottomans challenges this widely accepted Western image of the nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Ottomans as backward and impoverished. In the first book on this topic in English in over sixty years, Miri Shefer-Mossensohn contends that Ottoman society and culture created a fe...

(P/B) DIALOGIC IMAGINATION
FOUR ESSAYS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0053

Here in English translation are four selections from Voprosy literatury i estetiki (Problems of literature and esthetics), published in Moscow in 1975. Bakhtin claims for the novel vastly larger territory than has been traditionally accepted. For him, the novel is not so much a genre as a force, "novelness." He examines the difficulty of arriving at a generic definition of the novel and attempts a classification of novelistic works based on the philosophic attitude toward time and space that each presumes. Finally, Bakhtin discusses litera...

(P/B) THE BOW AND THE LYRE
THE POEM, THE POETIC REVELATION, POETRY AND HISTORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0088

In The Bow and the Lyre Octavio Paz, one of the most important poets writing in Spanish, presents his sustained reflections on the poetic phenomenon and on the place of poetry in history and in our personal lives. It is written in the same prose style that distinguishes The Labyrinth of Solitude. The Bow and the Lyre will serve as an important complement to Paz's poetry. Paz's discussions of the different aspects of the poetic phenomenon are not limited to Spanish and Spanish American literature. He is almost as apt to choose an example fr...

(P/B) CINEMA AND PAINTING
HOW ART IS USED IN FILM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0060

The visual image is the common denominator of cinema and painting, and indeed many filmmakers have used the imagery of paintings to shape or enrich the meaning of their films. In this discerning new approach to cinema studies, Angela Dalle Vacche discusses how the use of pictorial sources in film enables eight filmmakers to comment on the interplay between the arts, on the dialectic of word and image, on the relationship between artistic creativity and sexual difference, and on the tension between tradition and modernity. Specifically, Dal...

(H/B) HOMER IN PERFORMANCE
RHAPSODES, NARRATORS, AND CHARACTERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0098

Before they were written down, the poems attributed to Homer were performed orally, usually by rhapsodes (singers/reciters) who might have traveled from city to city or enjoyed a position in a wealthy household. Even after the Iliad and the Odyssey were committed to writing, rhapsodes performed the poems at festivals, often competing against each other. As they recited the epics, the rhapsodes spoke as both the narrator and the characters. These different acts - performing the poem and narrating and speaking in character within it - are se...

(P/B) PORTUGUESE
A REFERENCE MANUAL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0094

An essential, comprehensive guide for all who are interested in learning the Portuguese language and mastering its complexities, Portuguese: A Reference Manual supplements the phonetic and grammatical explanations offered in basic textbooks. While the Manual focuses on Brazilian Portuguese, it incorporates European Portuguese variants and thus provides a more complete description of the language.

HISTORY FILMS, WOMEN AND FREUD'S UNCANNY (P/B)
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0006

[. . .] In this book, Linville offers a sustained critique of the history film and its reduction of women to figures of ambivalence of absence. Historicizing and adapting Freud's concept of the uncanny and its relationship to the maternal body as the first home, she offers theoretically sophisticated readings of the films "Midnight Clear", "Saving Private Ryan", "The Thin Red Line", "Nixon", "Courage Under Fire", "Lone Star", and "Limbo".

(P/B) FILMING DIFFERENCE
ACTORS, DIRECTORS PRODUCERS AND WRITERS ON GENDER, RACE, AND SEXUALITY IN FILM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0070

Addressing representation and identity in a variety of production styles and genres, including experimental film and documentary, independent and mainstream film, and television drama, Filming Difference poses fundamental questions about the ways in which the art and craft of filmmaking force creative people to confront stereotypes and examine their own identities while representing the complexities of their subjects. Selections range from C. A. Griffith's "Del Otro Lado: Border Crossings, Disappearing Souls, and Other Transgressions" and ...

(P/B) EXCHANGE AND THE MAIDEN
MARRIAGE IN SOPHOCLEAN TRAGEDY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0096

Marriage is a central concern in five of the seven extant plays of the Greek tragedian Sophocles. In this pathfinding study, Kirk Ormand delves into the ways in which these plays represent and problematize marriage, thus offering insights into how Athenians thought about the institution of marriage. Ormand takes a two-fold approach. He first explores the legal and economic underpinnings of Athenian marriage, an institution designed to guarantee the legitimate continuation of patrilineal households. He then shows how Sophocles' plays Trachi...

(P/B) DEMOSTHENES SPEECHES 27-38
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0095

This volume contains five speeches written for lawsuits in which Demosthenes sought to recover his inheritance, which he claimed was fraudulently misappropriated and squandered by the trustees of the estate.

(P/B) DEMOSTHENES, SPEECHES 23-26
TRANSLATED BY EDWARD M. HARRIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0093

Classical oratory is an invaluable resource for the study of ancient Greek life and culture. The speeches offer evidence on Greek moral views, social and economic conditions, political and social ideology, law and legal procedure, and other aspects of Athenian culture that have recently been attracting particular interest: women and family life, slavery, and religion, to name just a few. This volume provides introductions, translations, and notes for four speeches found in the Demosthenic corpus that have not been translated in recent time...

(P/B) CONTROLLING DESIRES
SEXUALITY IN ANCIENT GREECE AND ROME
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0092

Since its first publication in 2009, Controlling Desires has been widely lauded as an accessible introduction to sexual practices, attitudes, and beliefs in the classical world. Treating Greece and Rome in separate sections, with ample cross-references and comparisons, Kirk Ormand presents a wide array of evidence from literary texts and visual arts, including two new chapters on Greek vase painting and Roman artifacts and wall paintings. Now with new chapters on Greek vase painting and Roman artifacts and wall paintings, Controlling Desir...

(H/B) HARD GROUND
PHOTOGRAPHS BY MICHAEL O'BRIEN, POEMS BY TOM WAITS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0086

Michael O'Brien got out of his car one day in 1975 and sought the acquaintance of a man named John Madden who lived under an overpass. Their initial contact grew into a friendship that O'Brien chronicled for the Miami News, where he began his career as a staff photographer. O'Brien's photo essays conveyed empathy for the homeless and the disenfranchised and won two Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards. In 2006, O'Brien reconnected with the issue of homelessness and learned the problem has grown exponentially since the 1970s, with as many as...

(P/B) HISTORY, TRAGEDY, THEORY
DIALOGUES ON ATHENIAN DRAMA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0081

Greek tragedy has held sway over the imagination of audiences for well over two millennia. This collection of essays on Athenian drama, the proceedings of a conference held at the University of Texas at Austin in 1992, demonstrates that Greek tragedy still retains its power to provoke debate and to engage the interest of specialists and non-classicists alike. The book includes essays by seven of the foremost scholars of Greek drama - Helene Foley, Michelle Gellrich, Peter W. Rose, David Rosenbloom, Richard Seaford, Bernd Seidensticker, and...

(P/B) HOMERIC QUESTIONS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0046

The "Homeric Question" has vexed Classicists for generations. Was the author of the Iliad and the Odyssey a single individual who created the poems at a particular moment in history? Or does the name "Homer" hide the shaping influence of the epic tradition during a long period of oral composition and transmission? In this innovative investigation, Gregory Nagy applies the insights of comparative linguistics and anthropology to offer a new historical model for understanding how, when, where, and why the Iliad and the Odyssey were ultimately...

(P/B) CINEMA OF ANXIETY
A PSYCHOANALYSIS OF ITALIAN NEOREALISM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0091

The "new" realism of Italian cinema after World War II represented and in many ways attempted to contain the turmoil of a society struggling to rid itself of Fascism while fighting off the threat of radical egalitarianism at the same time. In this boldly revisionist book, Vincent F. Rocchio combines Lacanian psychoanalysis with narratology and Marxist critical theory to examine the previously neglected relationship between Neorealist films and the historical spectators they address. Rocchio builds his analysis around case studies of the fi...

(H/B) PHOTOGRAPHING THE MEXICAN REVOLUTION
COMMITMENTS, TESTIMONIES, ICONS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0082

The Mexican Revolution of 1910-1920 is among the world's most visually documented revolutions. Coinciding with the birth of filmmaking and the increased mobility offered by the reflex camera, it received extraordinary coverage by photographers and cineastes-commercial and amateur, national and international. Many images of the Revolution remain iconic to this day-Francisco Villa galloping toward the camera; Villa lolling in the presidential chair next to Emiliano Zapata; and Zapata standing stolidly in charro raiment with a carbine in one ...

(H/B) FIREFLIES
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0883-0087

In Fireflies, Keith Carter presents a magical gallery of photographs of children and the world they inhabit. The collection includes both new work and iconic images such as "Fireflies," "The Waltz," "Chicken Feathers," "Megan's New Shoes," and "Angel" selected from all of Carter's rare and out-of-print books. When making these images, Carter often asked the children, "do you have something you would like to be photographed with?" This creative collaboration between photographer and subject has produced images that conjure up stories, dream...
