Mythical Trickster Figures

Mythical Trickster Figures is the first substantial collection of essays about the trickster figure since Paul Radin's influential 1955 publication of The Trickster. Contributions by leading scholars treat a wide range of manifestations of this mischievous character, ranging from the Coyote of the American Southwest to such African figures as Eshu-Elegba and Ananse, the Japanese Susa-no-o, the Greek Hermes, Christian adaptations of Saint Peter, and examples found in contemporary American fiction and drama. Original essays by authors known for their work on trickster figures provide resources for comprehending the nature of the phenomenon and challenge some previous interpretations. The contributors include T.O. Beidelman, Anne Doueihi, Robert S. Ellwood, Laura Makarius, Robert D. Pelton, Mac Linscott Ricketts, Thomas J. Steele, S.J., Christopher Vecsey, as well as the editors. Several contributors deconstruct earlier comparativist works in favor of culture-specific analysis and provide for a grasp of the transcultural qualities of the trickster myths and figures that appear in the local mythologies of different societies. The many humorous trickster stories included are fascinating in themselves, and Hynes and Doty highlight the wide range of features of the trickster - the figure whose comic appearance often signifies that the most serious cultural values are being both challenged and enforced. Mythical Trickster Figures moves away from earlier studies that considered the figure merely 'primitive' or located in the basement of the human psyche suggesting instead that the spirit of metaplay is crucial to human and social maturation.

The world holds its breath as the Tribulation Force ventures to Jerusalem for the great Meeting of the Witnesses. Tens of thousands of the 144,000 witnesses prophesied in Scripture meet at Teddy Kollek Stadium to sit under the teaching of their pastor-teacher, Tsion Ben-Judah.Rayford Steele and Buck Williams, charter members of the Force, have gone from employees of Nicolae Carpathia to international fugitives. Rayford, finally discovering the shocking truth about Amanda, must flee before the grand conference begins. The two witnesses at the Wailing Wall proclaim warnings to the 'one who sits on the throne of the earth', and Carpathia himself makes a surprise appearance at the stadium.The Tribulation calendar moves ever closer to the halfway point, which the two witnesses call 'the due time'. Meanwhile, the fourth Trumpet Judgment strikes the solar system, crippling life on earth.The next three judgments are to be so much worse than anything that has come before that an angel flies about heaven, warning the earth of the three woes. The fifth Trumpet Judgment -- a plague of scorpionlike locusts led by Apollyon, chief demon of the abyss -- is so horrifying that men try to kill themselves but are not allowed to die.

Shifting the focus from poetry to the novel; from Afro-Cuban writing to the representation of Asian-Caribbean women; from the oral tradition to the scribal, this critical anthology develops the debate concerning ways of reading Caribbean women's literature. Framing The Word offers challenging perspectives from writers and critics alike writing and/or teaching in the Caribbean, the UK and the USA. Reflecting on the diversity within that body of literature generally known as Caribbean women's writing, Framing The Word moves beyond the celebratory to explore and substantiate the central questions of gender and genre. This book will be of special interest to students, teachers and a wider readership interested to become better informed about this remarkable and vibrant new writing.
