The Complete Plays of Jean Racine

Author:Jean Racine

Publisher:Penn State Press


Total Pages:168



Books Description:

This is the third volume of a projected translation into English of all twelve of Jean Racine’s plays—only the third time such a project has been undertaken. For this new translation, Geoffrey Alan Argent has rendered these plays in the verse form that Racine might well have used had he been English: namely, the “heroic” couplet. Argent has exploited the couplet’s compressed power and flexibility to produce a work of English literature, a verse drama as gripping in English as Racine’s is in French. Complementing the translation are the illuminating Discussion, intended as much to provoke discussion as to provide it, and the extensive Notes and Commentary, which offer their own fresh and thought-provoking insights. In Iphigenia, his ninth play, Racine returns to Greek myth for the first time since Andromache. To Euripides’s version of the tale he adds a love interest between Iphigenia and Achilles. And dissatisfied with the earlier resolutions of the Iphigenia myth (her actual death or her eleventh-hour rescue by a dea ex machina), Racine creates a wholly original character, Eriphyle, who, in addition to providing an intriguing new denouement, serves the dual dramatic purpose of triangulating the love interest and galvanizing the wholesome “family values” of this play by a jolt of supercharged passion.

The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events, inspiring Outside magazine to name him The Fittest (Real) Man in America. In this curse-word-free edition of Can't Hurt Me, he shares his astonishing life story and reveals that most of us tap into only 40% of our capabilities. Goggins calls this The 40% Rule, and his story illuminates a path that anyone can follow to push past pain, demolish fear, and reach their full potential.

Books Description:

One minute he'd been Michael Williams, six foot four, short cut brown hair and unassuming brown eyes. The next minute he'd found himself in a vast boundless void of light and space with no point of reference. It was immensely peaceful with a sense of oneness and connectedness with everything . Then he was spat out the other side, confronted by a woman with sea-green eyes and hair the color of softly spun gold that flowed down her back. Horror stills Michael to the core as he realizes that he has travelled not just through space but time as well and this wondrous woman is destined to fight to save his planet from an invasion of aliens from the lower dimensions. Only trouble is she's going to be on the losing side. Kiana's a warrior and her kind don't interfere with free will or destiny." "If I must face what I must face tomorrow though, I have something to ask of you. It may even be the reason you came.” God help him, he thought he’d sell his soul if she wanted it. “Ask away. If there is anything I can do it would make me feel a bit less damn helpless right at this moment.” Kiana didn’t hesitate. If tomorrow was her doom then she wanted her moment with this amazing man. “Mate me.” ... Around midnight her sixth sense woke Sarah. Looking up amongst the stars she saw a strange and wondrous sight. A real UFO was coming into land due south of her position. It was unlike any aircraft she had ever seen. It was only because of her keen sight that she was able to make out its almost circular shape. There were no obvious portals or windows. Its mirror like surface sparkled like a myriad of diamonds. It wasn’t in any stealth mode. It hovered over the land for a moment and then seemingly disappeared straight into the earth. Her curiosity got the better of her. She banked her fire, gathered up her spear and her few belongings and headed off in the direction of the UFO.

“When you die, it does not mean that you lose to cancer. You beat cancer by how you live, why you live, and the manner in which you live.” – Stuart Scott The fearless, intimate, and inspiring story behind ESPN anchor Stuart Scott’s unrelenting fight against cancer, with a foreword by Robin Roberts. Shortly before he passed away, on January 4, 2015, Stuart Scott completed work on this memoir. It was both a labor of love and a love letter to life itself. Not only did Stuart relate his personal story—his childhood in North Carolina, his supportive family, his athletic escapades, his on-the-job training as a fledgling sportscaster, his being hired and eventual triumphs at ESPN—he shared his intimate struggles to keep his story going. Struck by appendiceal cancer in 2007, Stuart battled this rare disease with an unimaginable tenacity and vigor. Countless surgeries, enervating chemotherapies, endless shuttling from home to hospital to office and back—Stuart continued defying fate, pushing himself through exercises and workout routines that kept him strong. He wanted to be there for his teenage daughters, Sydni and Taelor, not simply as their dad, but as an immutable example of determination and courage. Every Day I Fight is a saga of love, an inspiration to us all.
