Locating Eugenio Montale firmly within European Modernism, this book examines the struggle with language that is central to his work.
INEXPRESSIBLE. The most profound mysteries are not hidden away in remote,
secret places; they are mostly an unrecognized part of everyday life. We fret over
mowing the lawn and miss the deep mystery of how the grass grows. We seek to

God's identity cannot be fully expressed in human words, but Scripture uses one particular Hebrew word to describe God's character: hesed. Often translated as lovingkindness, covenant faithfulness, or steadfast love, Michael Card unpacks the many dimensions of hesed, exploring how it is used in the Old Testament to reveal God's character and how its fullness is ultimately embodied in the incarnation of Jesus.
“The inexpressible” presents itself as a noun, as that which cannot be expressed,
while “inexpressible,” minus the designating “the,” is understood as an adjective
applied to some noun, meaning that the thing in question is or is presenting ...

Rigorously studying the inexpressible expression provoked by the silenced testimony of the Holocaust survivor, in Jean-François Lyotard’s The Differend, and the religious faithful, in Pseudo-Dionysius’ The Divine Names, proves to dissolve the apparent heterogeneity of postmodernism and Neoplatonist Christian mysticism and open radical new lines of dialogue. Expressing the Inexpressible critically evaluates each thinker and tradition, rethinks witnessing, testimony, sublimity, and apophaticism, and then engages them together to forge a new reading of silence and eros.
Inexpressible Privacy recasts the analysis of antebellum manhood in the context
of the middle-class interior to show that both male hero and male writer often find

Selected by Choice magazine as an Outstanding Academic Title for 2006 Few concepts are more widely discussed or more passionately invoked in American public culture than that of privacy. What these discussions have lacked, however, is a historically informed sense of privacy's genealogy in U.S. culture. Now, Milette Shamir traces this peculiarly American obsession back to the middle decades of the nineteenth century, when our modern understanding of privacy took hold. Shamir explores how various discourses, as well as changes in the built environment, worked in tandem to seal, regulate, and sanctify private spaces, both domestic and subjective. She offers revelatory readings of texts by Nathaniel Hawthorne, Frederick Douglass, Herman Melville, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Henry David Thoreau, and other, less familiar antebellum writers and looks to a wide array of sources, including architectural blueprints for private homes, legal cases in which a "right to privacy" supplements and exceeds property rights, examples of political rhetoric vaunting the sacred inviolability of personal privacy, and conduct manuals prescribing new codes of behavior to protect against intrusion.
Before his Damascus Road experience, Saul of Tarsus had earned a reputation as a religious strong-arm. Even after his conversion, this same Paul, the apostle to the Gentiles, remained a force to be reckoned with. Down through the centuries -- and right up to today -- his passionate and frequently combative writings have more than once turned the church upside down.
"Julian has lost everything he ever loved and is almost out of time.
Author: Paullina Simons
They were ready for anything ... except the end. The must-read conclusion to Paullina Simons' epic End of Forever saga. Julian has lost everything he ever loved and is almost out of time. His life and death struggle against fate offers him one last chance to do the impossible and save the woman to whom he is permanently bound. Together, Julian and Josephine must wage war against the relentless dark force that threatens to destroy them. This fight will take everything they have and everything they are as they try once more to give each other their unfinished lives back. As time runs out for the star-crossed lovers, Julian learns that fate has one last cruel trick in store for them - and even a man who has lost everything still has something left to lose. Following on from the heartbreaking The Tiger Catcher and A Beggar's Kingdom, Inexpressible Island is the unmissable conclusion to the epic End of Forever saga.
