Atlas Rising

Atlas Rising

I stood up. “Hey!” All heads turned to the man holding Alec's small body in his arms. “Hyperion!” Terence yelled at the man. If my Greek history was correct, I was relatively sure that Hyperion was another Titan.

Kala Hicks has been Atlas for 300 years, committing unspeakable acts every four days to keep the world spinning, and she’s mentally exhausted. Her only shred of hope to end it is a prophecy that says the Atlas curse will be broken by Chelsan Derée. Upon Kala seeing her newest mission in a vision, she knows it’s finally time. Chelsan, on the other hand, not only has no idea that gods, demons and angels exist, but that she is the one person in the entire world who can break Kala’s curse, and she has zero clue as to how to do it. What’s worse is that Kala’s newest mission is something that Chelsan would destroy everything in her path to make sure that Kala fails at. Will Chelsan fulfill the prophecy to save Kala from her curse? Or will she let the world burn to save the one she loves most?

Male Envy

Male Envy

The way the plot of these fragments is constructed , with the titan Hyperion falling from power and the young god Apollo rising up to take his place , could hardly avoid probing the code of Male Envy as a central theme .

Defining male envy as "the hostility males feel for other males," the author explores how envy, while a taboo topic in everyday life, has (from the Romantic period onward) been given a thorough treatment by literature and looks at what that treatment reveals about the role of envy in competition, warfare, and civilization. Discussing works ranging from Ivanhoe to The Shining he looks at envy as a coded subtext inherent in a vast range of human conflict. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

The life of Keats provides a unique opportunity for the study of literary greatness and of what permits or encourages its development. Its interest is deeply human and moral, in the most capacious sense of the words. In this authoritative biography--the first full-length life of Keats in almost forty years--the man and the poet are portrayed with rare insight and sympathy. In spite of a scarcity of factual data for his early years, the materials for Keats's life are nevertheless unusually full. Since most of his early poetry has survived, his artistic development can be observed more closely than is possible with most writers; and there are times during the period of his greatest creativity when his personal as well as his artistic life can be followed week by week. The development of Keats's poetic craftsmanship proceeds simultaneously with the steady growth of qualities of mind and character. Mr. Bate has been concerned to show the organic relationship between the poet's art and his larger, more broadly humane development. Keats's great personal appeal--his spontaneity, vigor, playfulness, and affection--are movingly recreated; at the same time, his valiant attempt to solve the problem faced by all modern poets when they attempt to achieve originality and amplitude in the presence of their great artistic heritage is perceptively presented. In discussing this matter, Mr. Bate says, The pressure of this anxiety and the variety of reactions to it constitute one of the great unexplored factors in the history of the arts since 1750. And in no major poet, near the beginning of the modern era, is this problem met more directly than it is in Keats. The way in which Keats was somehow able, after the age of twenty-two, to confront this dilemma, and to transcend it, has fascinated every major poet who has used the English language since Keats's death and also every major critic since the Victorian era. Mr. Bate has availed himself of all new biographical materials, published and unpublished, and has used them selectively and without ostentation, concentrating on the things that were meaningful to Keats. Similarly, his discussions of the poetry are not buried beneath the controversies of previous critics. He approaches the poems freshly and directly, showing their relation to Keats's experience and emotions, to premises and values already explored in the biographical narrative. The result is a book of many dimensions, not a restricted critical or biographical study but a fully integrated whole.

Hyperionides is intended for people who have a high level of interest in current affairs, are generally well-informed, and choose to think independently. Hyperionides, meaning “son of Hyperion”, is an epithet of Helios, the Greek Sun-god. The review appeals to opening rather than to closing the intellectual discussion. Therefore, despite a small-c “conservative” orientation, it eschews having any particular political line. Rather, it re-invigorates the old style of discourse, where the content of ideas mattered more than formulaic declarations intended to demonstrate one’s moral superiority. The contents of No 1 exemplify the sort of thing that the review seeks to publish.

Using original research in scientific treatises, philosophical manuscripts, and political documents, this pioneering study describes the neglected era of revolutionary medicine in Europe through the writings of the English poet and physician, John Keats. De Almeida explores the four primary concerns of Romantic medicine--the physician's task, the meaning of life, the prescription of disease and health, and the evolution of matter and mind--and reveals their expression in Keats's poetry and thought. By delineating a distinct but unknown era in the history of medicine, charting the poet's milieu within this age, and providing close reading of his poems in these contexts, Romantic Medicine and John Keats illustrates the interdisciplinary bonds between the two healing arts of the Romantic period: medicine and poetry.
