When Hoopoes Go To Heaven from the Author: Gaile Parkin. Ten-year-old Benedict is feeling happy. His family's new home in Swaziland has the most beautiful garden in the whole entire world, teeming with insects, frogs and his favourite cinnamon-coloured birds. Here, crouched in the cool shade of the lucky-bean tree, it's easy to forget the loneliness that comes from his siblings playing without him, easy to stop himself fretting about how to fix his Mama's failing cake-baking business. Of course, there are many things in Africa that cannot be put right by a boy who isn't yet big. But in Benedict's wonder-filled world, even the ugliest situation has a certain magic. Warm, funny and brimming with life, Where Hoopoes Go to Heaven paints a fresh and compelling picture of life in Swaziland that will capture your imagination and restore your faith in humanity.

The City As Comedy from the Author: Gregory W. Dobrov. Thirteen essays combine classical scholars' interest in theatrical production with a growing interdisciplinary inquiry into the urban contexts of literary production. At once a study of classical Greek literature and an analysis of cultural production, this collection reveals how for two centuries Athens itself was transformed, staged as comedy, and ultimately shaped by contemporary material, social, and ideological forces.

A Jungian Approach To Literature from the Author: Bettina Liebowitz Knapp. This book is the first to apply systemati¬≠cally Jungian psychology to the study of literature throughout the ages. The ten essays are purposefully different, illus¬≠trating the universality of Jungian arche¬≠typal analysis and criticism. The book has been divided into seven sections: the first five follow chronologi¬≠cal order from Euripides to Goethe and finally Yeats; the sixth and seventh are presented separately because they ex¬≠plore unique psychological experiences. Each essay is divided into two parts: an ectypal and an archetypal analysis of the works discussed. The ectypal section presents a brief historical summary of the period, acquainting readers with ap¬≠propriate facts concerning the author‚Äôs environment. The archetypal analysis, however, is the most important aspect of A Jungian Approach to Literature. Archetypes, contained in the collec¬≠tive unconscious, exist at the deepest level within the subliminal realm. They are ‚Äúmade manifest in archetypal (pri¬≠mordial) images: experienced in such universal motifs as the Great Mother, the Spiritual Father, Transformation, the Self, and others.‚ÄĚ The Jungian archetypal approach to literature acts as a broaden¬≠ing force in the life experience.
