With his characteristic genius for finding connections between writing and the stuff of our lives, Peter Turchi ventures into new and even more surprising territory. In A Muse and a Maze, Turchi draws out the similarities between writing and puzzle-making and its flip-side, puzzle-solving. As he teases out how mystery lies at the heart of all storytelling, he uncovers the magic—the creation of credible illusion—that writers share with the likes of Houdini and master magicians. In Turchi’s associative narrative, we learn about the history of puzzles, their obsessive quality, and that Benjamin Franklin was a devotee of an ancient precursor of sudoku called Magic Squares. Applying this rich backdrop to the requirements of writing, Turchi reveals as much about the human psyche as he does about the literary imagination and the creative process.

The essays in this collection address the prophetic function of opening scenes and sequences in Shakespeare's histories, dramas, and comedies. The authors ask and attempt to answer such questions as what constitutes an opening sequence, the purpose of prologues and choruses, the meaning of -enframed action, - and the relationship between exposition and mood setting. The contributors include prominent Shakespearean scholars such as Douglas Peterson, Barbara Palmer, David Bergeron, and J.L. Styan. Several of the papers were originally presented at a meeting of the Shakespeare Association of America."

Subliminal persuasion while the world drowns. As an ad copywriter, Frank earns his living manipulating people's opinions. Hired to use his talent help a politician he hates win a presidential election, can his own mind be rebeling? His true love calls him to reclaim his own consciousness. A near-future, dystopian science fiction short story about: Global warming/climate change Capitalism Consumerism Subliminal persuasion and influence, especially in advertising How explicit images in advertizing haunt and influence our imaginations Environmental physical pollution Mental/emotional pollution The vast amounts of packaging and other waste our society throws away Political campaign advertising If you've ever felt frustrated over the refusal of people to lower their materialistic lifestyles for the good of the planet . . . Or if you've ever felt frustrated because no matter how hard you work, how much money you make, you're still not happy . . . Or if you've ever felt your mind influenced against your will by advertising . . . You can relate to Mirror Maze. Warning: I've used a sort of semi-stream of consciousness style to convey the emotional collapse of the main character. As an advertising copywriter, he writes the ads, but is even more influenced by their words and images than the average person. Despite being one of the manipulators, he's as caught in the 'mirror maze' of our modern narcissistic society as any of us.
