The Awakening, originally titled A Solitary Soul, is a novel by Kate Chopin, first published in 1899. Set in New Orleans and on the Louisiana Gulf coast at the end of the 19th century, the plot centers on Edna Pontellier and her struggle between her increasingly unorthodox views on femininity and motherhood with the prevailing social attitudes of the turn-of-the-century American South. It is one of the earliest American novels that focuses on women's issues without condescension. It is also widely seen as a landmark work of early feminism, generating a mixed reaction from contemporary readers and critics. The novel's blend of realistic narrative, incisive social commentary, and psychological complexity makes The Awakening a precursor of American modernist literature; it prefigures the works of American novelists such as William Faulkner and Ernest Hemingway and echoes the works of contemporaries such as Edith Wharton and Henry James. It can also be considered among the first Southern works in a tradition that would culminate with the modern masterpieces of Faulkner, Flannery O'Connor, Eudora Welty, Katherine Anne Porter, and Tennessee Williams.

Examensarbeit aus dem Jahr 2001 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1,0, Universitat zu Koln, 104 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Funfzig Jahre lang, von der Publikation 1899 bis 1956, ist von The Awakening in Literaturwissenschaft, Literaturgeschichte und Literaturkritik kaum Notiz genommen worden. Eine irrationale Protagonistin, die bis in den Tod auf ihrer Identitat insistiert, dabei scheinbar nicht auf die "menschliche Herde" angewiesen ist und daruber dennoch nicht hysterisch oder psychotisch wird, stand ebenso im Widerspruch zum naturalisierenden viktorianischen Diskurs uber Weiblichkeit, wie die fiktionale Erkundung des Komplexes Kultur, Sexualitat und Tod Illusionen zu demontieren drohte, die als gesellschaftliches Fundament fungierten und bis heute fungieren. Dass diese konterdiskursive Infragestellung kulturerhaltender Ordnungsphantasmen zu einer massiven Verdrangung des Textes - nicht zuletzt unter dem Signum der Kulturversagung - gefuhrt hat, uberrascht kaum. Der Tenor zeitgenossischer Rezensionen bezeugt eine signifikante Ablehnung: " ...] it leaves one sick of human nature" (Awakening: 163), "its disagreeable glimpses of sensuality are repellent" (Awakening: 166), "gilded dirt" (Awakening: 167), "an essentially vulgar story" (Awakening: 168), "unhealthily introspective and morbid in feeling" (Awakening: 170), "unwholesome in its influence" (Awakening: 172). Es handelt sich dabei um viel mehr als nur um "vestiges of Victorian prudery" (Walker 1993: 141). Eine derart vehemente, mehr moralisch als asthetisch begrundete Ablehnung lasst vermuten, dass der Roman an neuralgische Punkte der Kultur wie auch der menschlichen Identitat ruhrt. Es geht um Fragen, die nicht gestellt werden durfen. Dass Nietzsche und Freud sich mit ahnlichen Reaktionen konfrontiert sahen, ist ebenso wenig ein Zufall wie die Tatsache, dass ihre Gedanken sehr produktiv fur die Interpretation des Textes genutzt werden konnen. Welche diskursiven"

It was supposed to be a time for healing. But it soon turned to horror. Paul and Penny Mason are spending the summer at the family lake house with their troubled, teenage daughter, Elsie, in a last-ditch effort to save their crumbling marriage. But the tension between them only thickens when they arrive at their once-idyllic summer home, a place that now feels eerily cold and darkly foreboding. It quickly becomes clear that all is not right. Penny is plagued by horrific, recurring nightmares. Paul and Elsie are surprised by the curious appearance of a sad, strange woman—a woman who purports to know them, but who calls them by names that are not their own. The mystery only deepens when they discover an antique box in the house. Inside is a photo of the woman, alive in a distant past. Who is she? And what is the source of the seeping, chilly discomfort that has suddenly settled over the family? The answer lies within Penny’s disturbing dreams and Elsie’s fragile emotional state—and when long-buried secrets reveal themselves, it will be the most frightening day of their lives. . . .

To an uninformed reader, Awakening is a fictionalized action story built on a retired Army soldier's fight to protect his loved ones. To those readers who dig deeper into the story, this is a unique and cleverly hidden message about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Andy, like many veterans today, was wounded in combat and has since left the military. With the support of family and friends, he struggles to find his place in the world. Plagued by nightmares of werewolves and fantasy between bouts of sleeplessness, he struggles to find the meaning of it all, as well as his own purpose. As time goes by and Andy seeks help, he begins to remember the truth. Unfortunately, the truth is something the military doesn't want remembered. His family, along with friends from his past come to his aid as the confusion and chaos of a military cover-up gone wrong unleashes itself in full force. With family and friends on the line, and an inner turmoil affecting his every decision, Andy must find a way to win an epic battle against the very forces that he worked so diligently to serve. Will he succeed in winning the battle against his enemies and his own demons? Will he save the lives of those around him that he holds dear? More importantly, what is the secret that everyone is willing to kill to protect?

Awakening: An Introduction to the History of Eastern Thought engages students with lively anecdotes, essential primary and secondary sources, an accessible writing style, and a clear historical approach. The text focuses primarily on India, China, and Japan, while showing the relationships that exist between Eastern and Western traditions. Patrick Bresnan consistently links the past to the present, so students may see that Eastern traditions, however ancient their origins, are living traditions and relevant to modern times. Updates to the Sixth Edition include a new introduction as well as new approaches to problem areas throughout the text, but with special emphasis in Chapter 5 (Ashtanga Yoga), Chapter 10 (Basic Teaching of Shakyamuni Buddha), Chapter 12(Mahayana Buddhism: Madhyamaka section) and Chapter 18 (Chan Buddhism: regarding the relationship of Chan Buddhism to Zen Buddhism). In addition, all references and source material have been brought up to date. The companion website includes two new videos and many new photos, produced by the author. New to this Sixth Edition: • A new introduction that provides a helpful overview of each of the nineteen chapters and important connections between them; • An improved explanation of the nature of Vedanta philosophy, and a more logical organization of the Key Elements of the Upanishads in Chapter 3; • An extensive rewrite of Chapter 5, which deals with the subject of Ashtanga Yoga as expressed in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali; • A greatly improved presentation of Buddha’s “Four Noble Truths” in Chapter 10; • A total recasting of the teaching of Nagarjuna in the Madhyamaka section of Chapter 12; • A clearer and easier to understand presentation of the teaching of the Dao De Jing in Chapter 14; • A major revision of Chapter 18 so as to clearly distinguish Chinese Chan from Japanese Zen; • Greater emphasis throughout, where pertinent, on the role of meditation practice in all Eastern traditions; • Revised and updated Questions for Discussion at the end of each chapter; • New photos and two newly produced videos prepared by the author for the book’s companion website: http://patrickbresnan.com/.

"The Awakening: The Last Great Paradigm Shift" is a refreshing and enlightening look into the seemingly unexplainable malaise that has taken hold in the modern day Christian church. As we take a peek into the twenty-first Century American Church, we see what appears to be a new phenomenon that is unfolding. This development has both Pastor and parishioner grappling for answers. There is a group within the Church, which, in large part, has provided the inspiration for the writing of this book. This group is experiencing a "falling away" within the end time Church of today. This group of believers still loves God and has a strong affinity for the things of God and, yet, they are experiencing an emptiness that is overwhelming and, furthermore, are no longer getting the satisfaction they once received from the Church. The Church and its status quo attitude and behavior is no longer fulfilling, satisfying or gratifying and the resultant emptiness is overbearing. And two questions that beg to be answered are why is this state of apostasy now so prominent in the Church and how did we get here? This book, among other things, tackles these issues from both a Biblical and historical perspective. This book is truly a must read for the end time believer in search of spiritual truth, insight and awakening. This book will challenge the modern day believer to look at where they are, to choose who they are going to serve and if they are willing to do it God's way. After having read this book, I feel challenged all the more. Rev. P Spears The Awakening is truly enlightening for the seeking, searching, 21st century believer. A refreshing revelation of Biblical truth. E Beech
