With its fresh translations by newer voices in the field, its broad scope, and its flowing style, this anthology places the immense riches of Chinese literature within easy reach. Ranging from the beginnings to 1919, this abridged version of The Columbia Anthology of Traditional Chinese Literature retains all the characteristics of the original. In putting together these selections Victor H. Mair interprets "literature" very broadly to include not just literary fiction, poetry, and drama, but folk and popular literature, lyrics and arias, elegies and rhapsodies, biographies, autobiographies and memoirs, letters, criticism and theory, and travelogues and jokes.

Ryson shook his head dolefully. It was now almost inconceivable that Glorious Old Triceratops was not the copper-skinned grandee who had come to Stohlson's Redemption twenty-two years earlier in the guise of the Immaculate Ultim of Aberdown, bringing death and catastrophe to the Tandryl-Kundorrs, the man who had visited Qymset under the same name some four hundred years earlier. If only he were somewhere here on his estate instead of the other side of the world . . . but . . . Could Ryson conceivably hope to kill one of the twelve rulers of Earth, of the entire universe, and make good his escape? There had to be a way.

Victorian Fairy Tales

The Victorian fascination with fairyland is reflected in the literature of the period, which includes some of the most imaginative fairy tales ever written. They offer the shortest path to the age's dreams, desires, and wishes. Authors central to the nineteenth-century canon such as Thackeray, Oscar Wilde, Ford Madox Ford, and Rudyard Kipling wrote fairy tales, and authors primarily famous for their work in the genre include George MacDonald, Juliana Ewing, Mary De Morgan, and Andrew Lang. This anthology brings together fourteen of the best stories, by these and other outstanding practitioners, to show the vibrancy and variety of the form and its ability to reflect our deepest concerns. The stories in this selection range from pure whimsy and romance to witty satire and darker, uncanny mystery. Paradox proves central to a form offered equally to children and adults. Fairyland is a dynamic and beguiling place, one that permits the most striking explorations of gender, suffering, love, family, and the travails of identity. Michael Newton's introduction and notes explore the literary marketplace in which these tales appeared, as well as the role they played in contemporary debates on scepticism and belief. The book also includes a selection of original illustrations by some of the masters of the field such as Richard Doyle, Arthur Hughes, and Walter Crane.

Three gripping tales of subtle horror and dark fantasy by a master storyteller

Come and visit a world of subtle horror and dark fantasy by master of creeping horror Tom Fletcher, a world in which insidious forces permeate the folds of reality, twisting it one strand at a time. This omnibus includes the novels The Leaping, The Thing on the Shore and The Ravenglass Eye, with a bonus chapter from Tom's new fantasy series, The Factory Trilogy, included. THE LEAPING: Jack finished university three years ago, but he's still stuck in a dead-end job in a sinister call-centre in Manchester. When the beautiful(and rich) Jennifer comes into his life, he thinks he has finally found his ticket out of there. Trouble is that his boss is interested in Jennifer as well, and there's something strangely bestial about him . . . So when Jennifer buys Fell House, a mysterious old mansion in remote Cumbria, a house party on a legendary scale seems like the perfect escape. But as the party spins out of control on a seemingly neverending night, they must face up to the terrifying possibility that not all their guests may be human - and some of them want to feed. THE THING ON THE SHORE: When Artemis Black is assigned to manage a call centre on behalf of a mysterious multinational corporation called Interext, he decides to implement a unique personal project, installing cutting-edge AI technology in the centre. But this 'technology' has other effects. Soon, one of Artemis' employees, Arthur, becomes aware of an intangible landscape inside the labyrinthine systems of the call-centre - a landscape in which he can feel an otherworldly consciousness stirring . . . THE RAVENGLASS EYE: Edie is a barmaid at The Tup in the small town of Ravenglass. So far, so normal. But when she is caught in a freak earthquake she subsequently develops 'The Eye' - a power that allows her glimpses of other worlds and strange events. At first Edie passes her visions off as nightmares, but when a person is found murdered, she realises that she has seen this death before, and that her visions are not imaginary, but real. Mankind had better hope that Edie finds a solution to the murders soon, because it's more than just the influence of The Eye that has entered the world. A power far more malevolent has been released, and that power is hungry for death.

Rethinking the Way We Teach Science

The Interplay of Content, Pedagogy, and the Nature of Science
Author: Louis Rosenblatt
Publisher: Routledge
ISBN: 1136911685
Category: Education
Page: 184
View: 5686
Offering a fresh take on inquiry, this book draws on current research and theory in science education, literacy, and educational psychology, as well as the history and philosophy of science, to make its case for transforming the way science is taught. Re-thinking the Way We Teach Science addresses major themes in national reform documents and movements--how to place students at the center of what happens in the classroom; how to shift the focus from giving answers to building arguments; how to move beyond narrow disciplinary boundaries to integrated explorations of ideas and issues that connect directly with students; and most especially, the importance of engaging students in discussions of an interactive and explanatory character. Deeply anchored in the classroom, highly interactive, and relevant across grade levels and subject matter, above all this is a book about choosing to place the authority of reason over that of right answers.
