Son: Part Two
Jennifer Higgie
PORTAL : Journal of Multidisciplinary International Studies , 2005,
Abstract: It is 1842. Two Englishman set out on a Grand Tour of Europe and the Middle East. One is a young, gifted artist; the other a Gentleman. By the time they return to England, the artist has become a devotee of the Egyptian god Osiris. One night, after dining together in a small inn in Cobham, he violently murders his beloved father, believing him to be an imposter. Why? Son is a novel inspired by the life of Richard Dadd, one of the greatest Victorian painters and inmate of Bethlem Hospital - more commonly known as Bedlam. Part one of Son was published in PORTAL vol. 1, no. 2, in July 2004. This is the second and concluding part of the novel.
The land, the sea and the water in between - on the liquefaction of culture
Sven Rücker
Baltic Worlds , 2012,
Abstract: Even though the sea is characterized by its transgression of all borders, the founding of Sealand has shown that one can transform the sea into some sort of land, into Sea-Land. Because the sea is dislocated, one can set up a location. Because it is not the realm of defined territories, one can declare part of it as a territory and thereby align it with the land and the terrestrial idea of a state. But if one does, it is no longer “sea” in the strong sense of the word,1 but rather a symbolic aggradation of the sea — just sealand.
Yukio Mishima, the Unambiguous, and Myself: Living through a Writer’s Legacy*  [PDF]
Larry Johnson
Advances in Literary Study (ALS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/als.2013.14012

The recent release by Criterion on DVD of Paul Schrader’s film Mishima: A Life in Four Chapters(1985) and Mishima’s own film Patriotism(1965) has caused the author of this essay to reconsider his relationship with the late Japanese writers’ books and literary legacy. Believing that these fine films’ presence on DVD will stimulate much renewed discussion of Mishima both in the US and Japan, the author recalls his first discovery of Mishima’s existence shortly after his famous suicide in 1970, reading and responding to his literary output, and prodding famous authors such as Tennessee Williams and Cormac McCarthy for their thoughts on Mishima’s influence. The author’s two poems about Mishima are included to illustrate his changing inner perceptions of the internationally famous writer and the (now-fading) adverse reaction to his work in Japan caused by his politics and his virtually public suicide.

Departing toward Survival: Reconsidering the Language of Trauma in Cathy Caruth, Ingeborg Bachmann and W. G. Sebald  [PDF]
Kathleen Ong XinWei
Advances in Literary Study (ALS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/als.2014.24017
Abstract: Little has been said in trauma studies about the ability or inability of traumatized characters de-picted by traumatized writers to recover accounts of self from the aseptic reiterations of a language unable to articulate the unspeakable event of trauma. This paper argues that Cathy Caruth’s recent emphasis upon a “language of ashes”—derived from a “language of the life drive” departing from a “language of the death drive”—provides a framework for examining the extent to which traumatized textualities are able to apprehend their seeming enervating repetitions of the death drive as textual constructs able to be written on and read. I posit that the literary characters in the fictions of Ingeborg Bachmann and W. G. Sebald occupy opposing ends of the ambit of the life and death drives, and aver that the contrasting ways they perform the repetitiveness of personal and/or national trauma come close to enacting, respectively, the languages of the “death drive” and the “life drive”. I demonstrate the extent to which they are able to extricate the language used from their singular historical experiences of trauma. In this way, I argue that Caruth’s attempt to identify the site within history where trauma can be creatively animated sets a productive framework for examining how trauma can either metabolize an individual into foreclosing the world, or create a continuing dialogue with loss for the unfolding of a world-in-becoming.
Real Options Literature Review  [PDF]
Shihong Zeng, Shuai Zhang
iBusiness (IB) , 2011, DOI: 10.4236/ib.2011.31007
Abstract: After 30 years of discussion and research, the academic community has established a complete theoretical system of real options and provided an excellent framework for the use of real options theory in the investment appraisal of high-tech projects. An option is an entitlement without any obligation and it has been used to describe a variety of management decisions in business investment. The description of management is effective and proper. Due to the introduction of real options theory, there has been a major breakthrough in the investment area. Project evaluation is the core content of bank credit risk assessment and business evaluation. The core content never changes from the investment evaluation framework to the credit risk evaluation framework. The project evaluation meets various needs of subject s in different ways. In this paper, the importance of real options is analyzed and the literature is reviewed
A Summary of the Research on the Teaching Mode of MOOCs  [PDF]
Hong Zhao
Open Journal of Social Sciences (JSS) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jss.2019.72007
Abstract: MOOCs have become a new type of teaching mode, which has attracted wide attention of researchers and formed rich research results. This paper summarizes the characteristics of the teaching mode of MOOCs, the interaction between “teaching” and “study” in the teaching mode of MOOCs, the influence of the teaching mode of MOOCs on traditional teaching, the advantages and disadvantages of the teaching mode of MOOCs and the improvement strategy, in order to deepen the understanding of the study of the MOOCs teaching model. Through the review, the article believes that there are three shortcomings in the current research on MOOCs: the lack of research on the improvement strategy of MOOCs, the lack of empirical analysis on the study of MOOCs and the lack of rational reflection on the study of MOOCs.
Wind of Change in Nós Matámos o C o-Tinhoso
Alonso, Cláudia Pazos
Ellipsis , 2007,
Abstract: This article reads the collection Nós Matámos o C o-Tinhoso as an example of ‘colonial mimicry’. According to Bhabba, ‘mimicry […] is never far from mockery’. Indeed, Honwana skillfully appropriates the famous image of the ‘wind of change’ advocated by Macmillan in South Africa in 1960 to suggest that in the context of Mozambique a cleansing storm (alluding to armed struggle) was in fact unavoidable. Within this framework, the article relies on close textual analysis to consider more fully the intricate way in which Honwana structures his collection and combines subtle shifts in first person narrative with ambiguous imagery in order to successfully convey a dissident message despite a censorship context.
Literatura trágica y filosofía del espíritu
Estudios filológicos , 2008, DOI: 10.4067/S0071-17132008000100011
Abstract: tragic literature and the philosophy of the soul refer not only to the way hegel’s estética incorporates this ancient literary genre into the canon of artistic expressions. these concepts also develop the meaning that tragic art obtains inside the system. the part that constitutes the philosophy of the mind is an example of the action founded in the ethos that hegel names with the german word sittlichkeit.
