When Victoria awakes to find a dead man in her bed, A Wish for Death, takes you back seventeen years leading up to the demise of the murdered man. Who was he? Did she kill him? Victoria had no idea that stepping into the work world would make such a dramatic change in her life. As a housewife and mother of five children, her life consisted of being a caretaker for years. When she entered the work world, she and her husband, Stan, would endure drastic changes in both of their lives. Sexual harassment and eventually rape leads Victoria down a winding road. As she struggles to come back up and regain her dignity, she must overcome guilt, hopelessness and turmoil. Years later she learns of her daughter’s dilemma, and struggles to help her daughter overcome the trauma she’s been through. Her past experience assists in the aid of her daughter’s recovery. Victoria attends college as an adult, and strives to make it in the southern state of South Carolina, a state once known as “a good ole boy state.” Both she and her daughter are frightened when they become a target. But in the end, victory lies in fate, and fate usually comes with a price. Victoria’s victory and fate comes with the ultimate price-death.

The book Bipolar Poetry : Erasing My Demons is a collection of a struggling young man's thoughts captured in intense rhymes. The words that the author found at both the highest and lowest points of his mental illness truly bring to light the inconsistent, ever changing realities that define the bipolar mind. The writer entangles the feelings of loss, love, faith, anger and doubt together in such a way that leaves you questioning good and evil, and the true clarity of either. Throughout the book the poems and prayers outline the writer's journey into the dark searching for light. Bipolar, or Manic Depressant, young adults are diagnosed more and more in the 21st century, and some extreme accounts of this irrational behavior have even resulted in violent disasters plaguing local and national television. Although the author of this book has never really violently hurt anyone, his rhymes emphasize some of the irrational thoughts that in some less fortunate cases to often result in these sometimes deadly tragedies. The author expressed the reasoning behind this book was to help people better comprehend the inconsistent thought patterns, and inner battles that so many with a mental illness face day in a day out. He also stated that even at his lowest he could never comprehend how some could use mental illness to excuse rape or murder, and he praised God he couldn't.

Using Shakespeare's work to expand our understanding of what it is to be human, this book of applied psychoanalysis furthers the study of Shakespeare, literary theory, dramatic arts, and psychoanalytic theory. It is also accessible to readers, theatre-goers and those who have an interest in the human condition. With intellectual rigour, and close textual analysis, it values the insights of many creative writers such as T. S. Eliot, James Joyce, W. H. Auden, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, as well as Sigmund Freud, Heinz Kohut and D.W. Winnicott. For the clinician, this book introduces new theories in psychoanalysis based upon the text and clinical experience. Psychoanalysts looking at literature are at a disadvantage, as the value system belongs solely to the realm of literary theory proper. Literary theory, in turn, often finds what the scholar seeks. It is not surprising that this potentially enriching combination of literary theory and psychoanalysis has had difficulty sustaining its relevance and tends towards reductionism.
For us as audience, the killing of Mutius undoes his rationalisation that his twenty-one sons died for Rome, but may instead expose his unconscious wish to kill his male progeny; a wish that may break forth and drive him mad.

This book is a survey of personal illness as described in various forms of early modern manuscript life-writing. How did people in the seventeenth century rationalise and record illness? Observing that medical explanations for illness were fewer than may be imagined, the author explores the social and religious frameworks by which illness was more commonly recorded and understood. The story that emerges is of illness written into personal manuscripts in prescriptive rather than original terms. This study uncovers the ways in which illness, so described, contributed to the self-patterning these texts were set up to perform.

THE most ancient special devotion of Christians is doubtless that of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Son of God. The holy Sacraments and the other objects of devotion did not yet exist, when the Blessed Virgin Mary found her delight in worshiping the most Sweet Heart of her Jesus; already did Holy Joseph clasp that Heart to his bosom; even then were the Shepherds and the Magi, Simeon and Anna, the Apostles and the Disciples attracted to It and by It: they longed to show to It the affection and love of their hearts. But after Jesus had called upon all men to learn, “that He is meek and humble of Heart;” after He had drawn from the treasury of His Heart that best of all gifts, the Sacrament of the Most Blessed Eucharist; lastly, after He had willed that, upon the Cross, His Heart should be opened, and continue open, as a place of refuge for all; then was devotion to His Divine Heart wonderfully increased.

Men and women who have sacrificed their personal identities to live in the shadows and uphold justice for all--no matter the cost. Network operatives Kirsten Ulrick and Ash Barnett go undercover to protect Raven Harris and her husband from their seemingly invisible enemy.

Ash and Kirsten accept that they can't protect the Harris' without becoming involved in their lives, but seeing the couples' pain reflects their own private torment.

Kristen Block examines the entangled histories of Spain and England in the Caribbean during the long seventeenth century, focusing on colonialism's two main goals: the search for profit and the call to Christian dominance. Using the stories of ordinary people, Block illustrates how engaging with the powerful rhetoric and rituals of Christianity was central to survival. Isobel Criolla was a runaway slave in Cartagena who successfully lobbied the Spanish governor not to return her to an abusive mistress. Nicolas Burundel was a French Calvinist who served as henchman to the Spanish governor of Jamaica before his arrest by the Inquisition for heresy. Henry Whistler was an English sailor sent to the Caribbean under Oliver Cromwell's plan for holy war against Catholic Spain. Yaff and Nell were slaves who served a Quaker plantation owner, Lewis Morris, in Barbados. Seen from their on-the-ground perspective, the development of modern capitalism, race, and Christianity emerges as a story of negotiation, contingency, humanity, and the quest for community. Ordinary Lives in the Early Caribbean works in both a comparative and an integrative Atlantic world frame, drawing on archival sources from Spain, England, Barbados, Colombia, and the United States. It pushes the boundaries of how historians read silences in the archive, asking difficult questions about how self-censorship, anxiety, and shame have shaped the historical record. The book also encourages readers to expand their concept of religious history beyond a focus on theology, ideals, and pious exemplars to examine the communal efforts of pirates, smugglers, slaves, and adventurers who together shaped the Caribbean's emerging moral economy.

We all face death, but how many of us are actually ready for it? Whether our own death or that of a loved one comes first, how prepared are we, spiritually or practically? In Preparing to Die, Andrew Holecek presents a wide array of resources to help the reader address this unfinished business. Part One shows how to prepare one's mind and how to help others, before, during, and after death. The author explains how spiritual preparation for death can completely transform our relationship to the end of life, dissolving our fear and helping us to feel open and receptive to letting go in the dying process. Daily meditation practices, the stages of dying and how to work with them, and after-death experiences are all detailed in ways that will be particularly helpful for those with an interest in Tibetan Buddhism and in Tibetan approaches to conscious dying. Part Two addresses the practical issues that surround death. Experts in grief, hospice, the funeral business, and the medical and legal issues of death contribute chapters to prepare the reader for every practical concern, including advance directives, green funerals, the signs of death, warnings about the funeral industry, the stages of grief, and practical care for the dying. Part Three contains heart-advice from twenty of the best-known Tibetan Buddhist masters now teaching in the West. These brief interviews provide words of solace and wisdom to guide the dying and their caregivers during this challenging time. Preparing to Die is for anyone interested in learning how to prepare for death from a Buddhist perspective, both spiritually and practically. It is also for those who want to learn how to help someone else who is dying, both during the time of illness and death as well as after death.
