This fascinating collection of 18 essays sets out to discover the distinctiveness of modern British and American literature by comparing and contrasting the two traditions. It covers all the principal generic categories, poetry, drama and prose, from Eliot, Waugh and Fitzgerald, to Fowles and Philip Roth, and considers some major themes such as women's and black fiction. It uses particular case studies to consider both the way the two literatures have influenced one another and what distinguishing characteristics they each possess.

Today children who are not fluent in English-legal and illegal immigrants, refugees, and native born-are the fastest growing portion of our population, accounting for more than half the children in classrooms in many city schools. Bilingual education programs established by federal and state laws have required that such students be taught basic subjects in their native languages rather than in English. Judged by most applicable measures-such as achievement scores and dropout rates-these programs have not been successful. This edition includes new material on recent efforts to reform bilingual education, on the growing trend across the country toward English language programs, on the latest national research studies, and on the movement to make English the official language of the United States. Forked Tongue is a devastating inside account of how the twenty-eight-year experiment in bilingual education has failed our language-minority children-and why. Rosalie Porter draws on local, state, and international experience to provide us with the first authoritative account of which policies, programs, and practices actually succeed with the children they are intended to serve. Forked Tongue will be of interest to educators, sociologists, and scholars interested in second language acquisition.

According to legend, somewhere beneath the 50 thousand acres of man-made Lake Murray, lie the graves of the only accused witches ever executed in South Carolina. Kate Martin has become obsessed with this legend of her beloved home, or so her friends and family believe. In a tale of testing faith—perverted, faltering, profane, and pious – Kate struggles to discover the truth behind a blighted belief in the supernatural while she deals with her own doubts and demons of a very mortal sort. As she peels away the layers of fantasy surrounding the myth of madness and mayhem, she is drawn dangerously deep into heresy and evil, until twenty-first century and eighteenth century begin to blur and the hiss of a sinister legend becomes the din of monsters.

Why is it impossible to talk Swedish while queuing for a hamburger on a Friday night in Helsinki without getting into a fight, despite Swedish being an official language in Finland? The Queen of Denmark, the Government Minister, the Nobel Prize winner and the young editor-in-chief all have an intense relationship with language. In this book, they - along with a number of other people with a keen interest in language - talk about how language has shaped their lives, both private and professional. Language affects people - it engages and provokes. And power lies in language. Icelanders and Finns only have access to translated and interpreted material if they have not learned a Scandinavian language. Does the way we handle language in Nordic collaboration mean that we are creating ademocratic deficit? How are we affected by tradition on the one hand and by the accelerating change brought about by globalisation on the other? Is it a question of generational boundaries? Would young people in Nordic countries rather speak English than Norwegian? These are some of the issues touched upon in this book.

Bren Barran is a normal guy in most ways. All he really wants is a sweet girlfriend and enough time and money to play videogames, but his job keeps getting in the way. After all, opening trans-dimensional gates to hell and summoning demons for money isn't the sort of thing that you can leave at the office when the clock hits five. Even so, he's doing all right until someone (or something) starts making people in his line of work disappear. With nothing in his corner except for his job skills, a few friends in low places, and a good head on his shoulders, Bren's got to do everything he can to figure out what's going on before all hell breaks loose (literally) and he ends up dead... or much, much worse.

These sixteen illustrated essays present an important revision of surrealism byfocusing on the works of women surrealists and their strategies to assert positions as creativesubjects within a movement that regarded woman primarily as an object of masculine desire orfear.While the male surrealists attacked aspects of the bourgeois order, they reinforced thetraditional patriarchal image of woman. Their emphasis on dreams, automatic writing, and theunconscious reveal some of the least inhibited masculine fantasies. The first resistance to the malesurrealists' projection of the female figure arose in the writings and paintings of marginalizedwoman artists and writers associated with Surrealism. The essays in this collection explore thecomplexity of these women's works, which simultaneously employ and subvert the dominant discourse ofmale surrealists.Mary Ann Caws is Professor of French and Comparative Literature at the GraduateCenter of the City University of New York.

How did the zebra really get its stripes, and the giraffe its long neck? What is the science behind camel humps, leopard spots, and other animal oddities? Such questions have fascinated us for centuries, but the expanding field of evo-devo (evolutionary developmental biology) is now providing, for the first time, a wealth of insights and answers. Taking inspiration from Kipling's 'Just So Stories', this book weaves emerging insights from evo-devo into a narrative that provides startling explanations for the origin and evolution of traits across the animal kingdom. Held's unique and engaging style makes this narrative both enlightening and entertaining, guiding students and researchers through even complex concepts and encouraging a fuller understanding of the latest developments in the field. The first five chapters cover the first bilaterally symmetric animals, flies, butterflies, snakes, and cheetahs. A final chapter surveys recent results about a menagerie of other animals.
