Saving Steele: The Rock Falls Series, Book 5 , ...

Kennedy Cross had her heart broken early in life. It wasn't someone or something who betrayed her - it was her own body. Despite it being all she's ever wanted, Kennedy will never feel her baby's feet kick from the inside out. Having been pronounced infertile at only 18, she redirected her life the best way she could. Eight years and a degree later, Kennedy is one of the most-loved first grade teachers at Rock Falls Elementary School. It doesn't matter that her college boyfriend left her because he wanted children of his own. She has 22 of the most gorgeous six-year-olds, and she wouldn't have it any other way. Jackson Steele deals only in extremes. He falls victim to manic episodes lasting for days, sometimes weeks at a time, sending him reeling from volatile highs to devastating lows. It's a living hell just being inside his own mind, and that hell has taken everything he's ever loved away from him. But what if, this time, it gives him something? An untimely gift from God and a brunette with legs eight miles long will bring him unforeseen joy - and his most challenging test yet. What happens when circumstances of life threaten the one thing both Jackson and Kennedy love? Saving Steele from himself may prove to be too much for Cross to bear. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lucy Rivers, Aiden Snow. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/009338/bk_blak_009338_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Critical Confrontations
16,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

Joins heretofore separate realms to provide a new, more cohesive story of critical theory 'An illuminating and cogent re-thinking of critical theory.... By an elegant and inclusive logic, (Steele) recasts tradition, the villain in many contemporary cultural scenarios, as the heroic defender and restorer of democratic ideals'. -- Carol L. Bernstein, Bryn Mawr College Critical Confrontations extends beyond the encyclopedia-like treatment found in most introductory volumes to broaden the interpretive landscape of critical theory and increase its usefulness. Contending that the dominant paradigms of contemporary critical theory eclipse rather than enable the analysis of gender, race, and difference that lies at the heart of today's cultural reflection, Meili Steele marshals the resources needed to draw tradition-based views of language and anti-humanistic theories from their abstract frameworks into the more tangible field of cultural studies. Beginning with the debate between New Criticism and historical intentionalism, Steele charts a course through hermeneutics, dialogue, explanation, interpretation, poststructuralism, feminism, democracy, and the antinomies of exile and rootedness. He pairs comparable theorists and reviews the interpretive lenses they employ, highlighting the strengths and weaknesses of each theorist and text. Weaving a progressive narrative in which each chapter builds upon the preceding, Steele enables the reader to work through a developing dialogue rather than a list of theories. He also illumines the ways in which seemingly disparate theories can interact to address the questions that face teachers and students of literature, cultural studies, andphilosophy. Steele renders perceptive analyses of contemporary theory's major thinkers, including Seyla Benhabib, Hans-Georg Gadamer, Julia Kristeva, Jacques Derrida, Michel Foucault, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Jessica Benjamin, Judith Butler, Mikhail Bakhtin, Jurgen Habermas, Cornel West

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.
