中文概要: Half a century after his shocking samurai-style suicide, Yukio Mishima (1925-1970) remains a deeply controversial figure. Though his writings and life-story continue to fascinate readers around the world, Mishima has often been scorned by scholars, who view him as a frivolous figure whose work expresses little more than his own morbid personality. In Mishima, Aesthetic Terrorist, Andrew Rankin sets out to challenge this perception by demonstrating the intelligence and seriousness of Mishima’s work and thought. Each chapter of the book examines one of the central ideas that Mishima develops in his writings: life as art, beauty as evil, culture as myth, eroticism as transgression, the artist as tragic hero, narcissism as the death drive. Along with fresh readings of major works of fiction such as The Temple of the Golden Pavilion and Patriotism the book introduces less familiar works in different genres. Special prominence is given to Mishima’s essays, which contain some of his most brilliant writing. Mishima is concerned with such problems as the loss of certainties and absolute values that characterize modernity, and the decline of strong identities in a world of increasing uniformity and globalization. In his cultural criticism Mishima makes an impassioned defense of free speech, and he rails against all forms of authoritarianism and censorship. Rankin reads Mishima’s artistic project, up to and including his spectacular death, as a single, sustained lyric, an aggressive piece of performance art unfolding in multiple media. For all his rebellious energies, Mishima’s work is suffused with a sense of ending-the end of art, the end of eroticism, the end of culture, the end of the world-and it is governed by a decadent aestheticism which holds that beautiful things radiate their most intense beauty on the cusp of their destruction. Erudite and authoritative, yet written in clear, accessible prose, Mishima, Aesthetic Terrorist is essential reading for all those who seek a deeper understanding of this radical and provocative figure.

作者介绍: British author Andrew Rankin was educated at the universities of London, Tokyo, and Cambridge. His other books include Snakelust, a translation of short fiction by Nakagami Kenji, and Seppuku: A History of Samurai Suicide.

中文概要: So long as man has thought, so long as memory has remembered, rites, verses, incantations have existed; rituals devised to bring hidden plentitudes into the open.

“Worlds pass effortlessly into worlds,” as it was written in the Vedas, the books of knowledge, the oldest verses of which may represent a far older poetic gospel, a language antedating the Sanskrit of the Vedas, a meter wrought not by reason, but yoked to words through the vibrato of the undisclosed.

What was born into things, what was snared among things, required only knowledge on its long journey through the ancient night to break free from the catastrophic cycle of birth and death. Thinking, “digging and digging” as it is written in the Rig Veda, until the spiral of consciousness, aware of its spiraling, sank, sank into itself, in spirit, down to its origins, aloft in the Vedic wind of liturgy and verse, where spirit met spirit, which was before being was, in the place where spirit was with spirit in spirit.

So long as man has thought, it was those “sunken in their secret inner spaces,” as the Rig Veda states, who tried and tried to think, and who did think, “to cleave the darkness, until it gave off its own light,” in their boat wending heavenward over the beck of hymn and song.

The struggle for knowledge and for its prosody, worship, remained for millennia an ether for its devotees, a sovereign realm consigning matter to resignation.

Folk belief regards the Vedas as a selection the Rishis or poet-seers chose from a far larger codex compiling an abundance of historical descriptions. They did so with the clairvoyance of those able to “glean the book of being in non-being,” to glimpse the centuries of twilight and the darkness that would succeed them. A bequest from the age of intuition to the age of logic, of reason, and of blindness.

Judaism and Hellenism: both are bound to the word, in both, the word occupies the place assumed by spirit in the teachings of the Veda. For the Rishis, the word was a mere surrogate. It was meter, the euphony of words, their the symmetry of their form and purpose, that led to inspiration, to rapture, to redemption. For them, the art of expression was simply a means of glimpsing what knowledge does not know. This is no less true for the Orphic and Eleusinian mysteries – whose spirit was the font of Platonic and Pythagorean wisdom – and they may well have been vestiges of the teachings of the Vedas. Even Democritus of Abdera, when he wished to know, tore out his eyes; down to the mid- nineteenth century, those who looked past themselves in pursuit of knowledge, in the hopes of expressing their ideal, were looked upon as poor fools.

中文概要: »Even more than the story, what fascinated me was the hatred, the anger and the pain and how that fire can be transformed into sentences.«

They had heard about five dead foxes, lying in the road by the Hungarian-Serbian border. But when the men from the disposal unit arrive, there are dozens of carcasses, dogs and cats, too – shot, it seems, by border guards to pass the time. The war in the Balkans is long over, and yet incidents like these haul the narrator back into his past.

Sitting in the garden of a Berlin clinic where he is stuck until his terrible digestion issues are treated, he is overcome by the music of a Kusturica film and he starts to sob: »perhaps because it brought it all back to the surface, all he tried to run away from, those desolate years of hollowing- out, years that seemed without end, nor desirous of an end, and on they endured.«

Who is this narrator, who stumbles back and forth between the scenes of his life in a torrent of speech that threatens to sweep him away; part of a carcass-collecting unit that had once completed a rather different task? Is he a victim, a perpetrator? A survivor who is seeking a cure through speaking?

The war in Yugoslavia and its afterlife have never lessened their hold on Zoltán Danyi – for almost two decades he failed in his attempt to comprehend the monstrous reality that almost entirely devoured him. One day, the sound was there – a sound that makes for compelling reading. The writing shimmers like the surface of a contaminated body of water. Layer by layer it is laid bare. A book constructed like a complex musical composition whose beauty contains both distance and an intimate touch.

中文概要: Dominic Smith’s The Electric Hotel winds through the nascent days of cinema in Paris and Fort Lee, New Jersey--America’s first movie town--and on the battlefields of Belgium during World War I. A sweeping work of historical fiction, it shimmers between past and present as it tells the story of the rise and fall of a prodigious film studio and one man’s doomed obsession with all that passes in front of the viewfinder.

For nearly half a century, Claude Ballard has been living at the Hollywood Knickerbocker Hotel. A French pioneer of silent films, who started out as a concession agent for the Lumière brothers, the inventors of cinema, Claude now spends his days foraging mushrooms in the hills of Los Angeles and taking photographs of runaways and the striplings along Sunset Boulevard. But when a film-history student comes to interview Claude about The Electric Hotel--the lost masterpiece that bankrupted him and ended the career of his muse, Sabine Montrose--the past comes surging back. In his run-down hotel suite, the ravages of the past are waiting to be excavated: celluloid fragments and reels in desperate need of restoration, and Claude’s memories of the woman who inspired and beguiled him.

作者介绍: Dominic Smith grew up in Sydney, Australia, and now lives in Seattle, Washington. He’s the author of the novels The Last Painting of Sara de Vos, Bright and Distant Shores, The Beautiful Miscellaneous, and The Mercury Visions of Louis Daguerre. His writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, Texas Monthly, and The Australian. He has been a recipient of literature grants from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Australia Council for the Arts. He teaches writing in the Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers.

中文概要: 乔治•奥威尔是二十世纪左派最重要的文学人物之一。虽然《1984》《动物庄园》和《对加泰罗尼亚的敬意》仍然被认为是现代经典著作,但他自己的政治却没有得到很好的理解。“本书对奥威尔的政治思想以及它持续的意义进行了同情而深刻的批判。作者探索了奥威尔政治的各个方面,详述了奥威尔改变工人阶级意识的尝试,探讨了他对工人阶级的态度到底是浪漫的、现实的还是出于一种恩惠——或者在不同的阶段是不同的态度。他还质疑奥威尔的反法西斯是否被他对苏联的批评所掩盖,并探讨了他与工党的矛盾关系。作者也对奥威尔关于美国问题的观点以及他与进步左派和女权主义的关系进行了突破性的探讨。”着眼于对奥威尔的持久兴趣以及他对当前政治进程的影响,本书是一次独特而细致入微的尝试,以证明奥威尔一直到去世之际都是一个坚定的社会主义者。(LYR)

中文概要: George Orwell was one of the most significant literary figures on the left in the twentieth century. While titles such as 1984, Animal Farm and Homage to Catalonia are still rightly regarded as modern classics, his own politics are less well understood.’Hope Lies in the Proles offers a sympathetic yet critical account of Orwell’s political thinking and its continued significance today. John Newsinger explores various aspects of Orwell’s politics, detailing Orwell’s attempts to change working-class consciousness, considering whether his attitude towards the working class was romantic, realistic or patronising - or all three at different times. He also asks whether Orwell’s anti-fascism was eclipsed by his criticism of the Soviet Union, and explores his ambivalent relationship with the Labour Party. Newsinger also breaks important new ground regarding Orwell’s shifting views on the USA, and his relationship with the progressive Left and feminism. ’Focusing on the enduring interest in Orwell and his influence on current political causes, the book is ultimately a unique, nuanced attempt to demonstrate that Orwell remained a committed socialist up until his death.

作者介绍: John Newsinger,巴斯泉大学的近代史教授。他著有十多本书书,其中包括《希望在无产者》(Pkuto,2018),图画小说《1917:俄罗斯红年》(Bookmarks,2016),《英国反叛乱》(Palgrave,2015),《鲜血未干:大英帝国人民史》(Bookmarks,2006)。

John Newsinger is Professor of Modern History at Bath Spa University. He is the author of over a dozen books, including Hope Lies in the Proles (Pluto, 2018), the graphic novel 1917: Russia’s Red Year (Bookmarks, 2016), British Counterinsurgency (Palgrave, 2015), and The Blood Never Dried: A People’s History of the British Empire (Bookmarks, 2006).

中文概要: Too much exercise can kill you. The Haywire Heart is the first book to examine heart conditions in athletes.

Intended for anyone who competes in endurance sports like cycling, triathlon, running races of all distances, and cross-country skiing, The Haywire Heart presents the evidence that going too hard or too long can damage your heart forever. You’ll find what to watch out for, what to do about it, and how to protect your heart so you can enjoy the sports you love for years to come. The Haywire Heart shares the developing research into a group of conditions known as “athlete’s heart”, starting with a wide-ranging look at the warning signs, symptoms, and how to recognize your potential risk. Leading cardiac electrophysiologist and masters athlete Dr. John Mandrola explores the prevention and treatment of heart conditions in athletes like arrhythmia, atrial fibrillation and flutter, tachycardia, hypertrophy, and coronary artery disease. He reviews new research about exercise intensity and duration, recovery, inflammation and calcification, and the ways athletes inflict lasting harm. These heart problems are appearing with alarming frequency among masters athletes who are pushing their bodies harder than ever in the hope that exercise will keep them healthy and strong into their senior years. The book is complete with gripping case studies of elite and age-group athletes from journalist Chris Case―like the scary condition that nearly killed cyclist and coauthor Lennard Zinn―and includes a frank discussion of exercise addiction and the mental habits that prevent athletes from seeking medical help when they need it. Dr. Mandrola explains why many doctors misdiagnose heart conditions in athletes and offers an invaluable guide on how to talk with your doctor about your condition and its proven treatments. He covers known heart irritants, training and rest modifications, effective medicines, and safe supplements that can reduce the likelihood of heart damage from exercise. Heart conditions affect hardcore athletes as well as those who take up sports seeking better health and weight loss. The Haywire Heart is a groundbreaking and critically important guide to heart care for athletes. By protecting your heart now and watching for the warning signs, you can avoid crippling heart conditions and continue to exercise and compete for years to come.
