Few outside of Poland are aware that during the 1980’s the Polish government orchestrated a cruel anti-gay program that targeted and punished queer people under the code name Operation Hyacinth. Pawel Kurczab, a gay Polish author, has written a devastating debut novel combining the true history of Poland’s discrimination of LGBTQ+ people and his own experiences growing up in Poland, creating a love story in his novel Hyacinth. The novel follows Kamil, a simple SB officer complicity following orders from the communist party of Poland, weeding out revolutionaries and spreading propaganda. For his loyalty, he's given everything he's ever dreamed of having. One day, Kamil is tasked to participate in Operation Hyacinth, where he must disguise himself to infiltrate the gay community. Little does he know, the operation will change his life forever as he comes to terms with who he really is under a dictatorship that dictates who and what love should be.

THE analogy existing between the vegetable and animal worlds, and the resemblances between human and tree life, have been observed by man from the most remote periods of which we have any records. Primitive man, watching the marvellous changes in trees and plants, which accurately marked not only the seasons of the year, but even the periods of time in a day, could not fail to be struck with a feeling of awe at the mysterious invisible power which silently guided such wondrous and incomprehensible operations. Hence it is not astonishing that the early inhabitants of the earth should have invested with supernatural attributes the tree, which in the gloom and chill of Winter stood gaunt, bare, and sterile, but in the early Spring hastened to greet the welcome warmth-giving Sun by investing itself with a brilliant canopy of verdure, and in the scorching heat of Summer afforded a refreshing shade beneath its leafy boughs. So we find these men of old, who had learnt to reverence the mysteries of vegetation, forming conceptions of vast cosmogonic world- or cloud-trees overshadowing the universe; mystically typifying creation and regeneration, and yielding the divine ambrosia or food of immortality, the refreshing and life-inspiring rain, and the mystic fruit which imparted knowledge and wisdom to those who partook of it. So, again, we find these nebulous overspreading world-trees connected with the mysteries of death, and giving shelter to the souls of the departed in the solemn shade of their dense foliage. Looking upon vegetation as symbolical of life and generation, man, in course of time, connected the origin of his species with these shadowy cloud-trees, and hence arose the belief that humankind first sprang from Ash and Oak-trees, or derived their being from Holda, the cloud-goddess who combined in her person the form of a lovely woman and the trunk of a mighty tree. In after years trees were almost universally regarded either as sentient beings or as constituting the abiding places of spirits whose existence was bound up in the lives of the trees they inhabited. Hence arose the conceptions of Hamadryads, Dryads, Sylvans, Tree-nymphs, Elves, Fairies, and other beneficent spirits who peopled forests and dwelt in individual trees—not only in the Old World, but in the dense woods of North America, where the Mik-amwes, like Puck, has from time immemorial frolicked by moonlight in the forest openings. Hence, also, sprang up the morbid notion of trees being haunted by demons, mischievous imps, ghosts, nats, and evil spirits, whom it was deemed by the ignorant and superstitious necessary to propitiate by sacrifices, offerings, and mysterious rites and dances. Remnants of this superstitious tree-worship are still extant in some European countries. The Irminsul of the Germans and the Central Oak of the Druids were of the same family as the Asherah of the Semitic nations. In England, this primeval superstition has its descendants in the village maypole bedizened with ribbons and flowers, and the Jack-in-the-Green with its attendant devotees and whirling dancers. The modern Christmas-tree, too, although but slightly known in Germany at the beginning of the present century, is evidently a remnant of the pagan tree-worship; and it is somewhat remarkable that a similar tree is common among the Burmese, who call it the Padaytha-bin. This Turanian Christmas-tree is made by the inhabitants of towns, who deck its Bamboo twigs with all sorts of presents, and pile its roots with blankets, cloth, earthenware, and other useful articles.

Samuel Beckett s Real Silence

Exploring the Christian symbolism throughout a major portion of Beckett's mature work (particularly Molloy, Malone Dies, The Unnamable, Watt, Not I, The Lost Ones, and Waiting for Godot), this book argues that Beckett is a writer of deep religious concern, not in the orthodox sense but in a sense fully as time honored. The path to "direct experience of Absolute of Unconditional Being" is traced through the classic stages of the quest (detachment, darkness, silence, trance, illumination, and revelation) with examples from both the content and structure of the works. A final chapter distinguishes among the several ironic tones that Beckett employs to reveal the profound reverence that is so often misread as cynicism. It is fitting that an author so frequently discussed in religious terms (his 1969 Nobel award cited him for singing the dies irae of the human race) should finally be read as a religious writer. Samuel Beckett's writing, with its rich, dark ambiguity, has been widely acknowledged for its brilliance, but variously interpreted in its meaning. Nearly all critics recognize the religious allusions and symbols present throughout the Beckettian oeuvre, but few have attempted to come to terms with them, preferring to regard these recurring themes and images as atheistic irony. This book addresses that deficiency by arguing that Beckett's major works "may be seen as a cumulative metaphor for the mystic quest," specifically the "negative way" of renunciation that stands in contrast to the affirmative orthodoxy of T.S. Eliot, for example. Dr. Baldwin accomplishes this task by citing the many echoes within Beckett's prose of the great Christian mystics of history--Augustine, Pascal, Langland, Dante--many of whom are clearly the sources drawn upon in Beckett's non-stop allusiveness, and by demonstrating Beckett's parallels with modern Christian mystics, especially Simone Weil , whose themes in Waiting for God are hauntingly evoked in Waiting for Godot and much of the rest of the Beckettian canon.

This is the first comprehensive, in-depth study of Eliot's unpublished verse. Through a close reading of the poems themselves, Mayer offers a new look at the familiar works by approaching them as a Modernist poetry of consciousness, expressed in a new poetic form as the psychic monologue. Uncovering new themes discovered in unpublished poetry, he develops a new approach to The Wasteland that shows for the first time how the separate voices of the poem relate to the poem's protagonist, how they simultaneously shape his experience of release, and how they culminate in a prophetic statement. Calling attention to the operation of play, routines, and cycles in the unpublished and familiar works, to the interplay of City and Psyche, and to the relationship between voices and vision, the book establishes the undeniable value of Eliot's unpublished verse in shaping the form and preoccupations of his early poetry.
