Make Writing a Passion

Write based on your passion. Think about your book until you can feel it rising
from deep within. If it is fiction, feel the characters. Ponder the details until it
moves you to keep writing. Do this over and over again until you finish your book.

Writing the Passions is a book of literary criticism, of philosophy and of the politics of modernity. It explores the arguments on the location of feeling in literature; on the fragmentation of the self under the pressure of the passions; of the place of the passions in psychoanalytic practice and theory; and on the notions of multiplicity, soul, spirit, polytheism and animism developed from their bases in psychoanalytic and Derridean theory. The relations between writing and the passions are addressed through individual texts, ranging across many centuries and from Europe to China. Writers and texts discussed include Plato, Andrew Marvell, Swinburne, Salman Rushdie, Iain Banks, Deleuze, Guattari and many others. Topics addressed include: the meaning of crime passionnel; art and the wound; passion and ceremonial; adoration and abjection; dread and disgust; the nature of the exotic; shame and irony; separation, incompletion and the cure. Written in a uniquely engaging and accessible style, Writing the Passions provides readers with a fascinating exploration of the general notion of 'the passions', together with a set of historical insights into how the passions have been considered and treated in different literatures and cultures.

Maxine Greene is the most important philosopher of education in the United States today. The author of Teacher as Stranger (1973), Landscapes of Learning (1978), Dialectic of Freedom (1988), and Releasing the Imagination (1995), Greene has influenced tens of thousands of teachers in North America as well as her colleagues in philosophy of education, teacher education, and curriculum studies. While widely cited, Greene has not - until now - been the subject of sustained scholarly analysis and investigation. William F. Pinar has organized a systematic study of Greene's contribution from several points of view: studies of the four books; studies of the intellectual and aesthetic influences upon her theory; and her influence on the various specializations within the broad field of education: the teaching of English, arts education, philosophy of education, curriculum studies, religious education, cognitive theory, and theory of teaching. The book opens and concludes with Maxine Greene's own autobiographical statements.

Musicians in the 16th century had a vastly different understanding of the structure and performance of music than today's performers. In order to transform inexpressively notated music into passionate declamation, Renaissance singers treated scores freely, and it was expected that each would personalize the music through various modifications, which included ornamentation. Their role was one of musical re-creation rather than of simple interpretation--the score represented a blueprint, not a master plan, upon which they as performer built the music. As is now commonly recognized, this flexible approach to scores changed over the centuries; the notation on the page itself became an ostensible musical Urtext and performers began following it much more closely, their sole purpose being to reproduce what was thought to be the composer's intentions. Yet in recent years, scholars and performers are once again freeing themselves from the written page--but the tools for doing so have long been out of reach. With Passionate Voice gives these tools to modern singers of Renaissance music, enabling them to learn and master the art of "re-creative singing." Providing a much-needed historically-informed perspective, author Robert Toft discusses the music of composers ranging from Marchetto Cara to John Dowland in the context of late Renaissance rhetoric, modal theory (and its antecedents in language), and performance traditions. Focusing on period practice in England and Italy, the two countries which produced the music of greatest interest to today's performers, Toft reconstructs the style of sung delivery through contemporary treatises on music, rhetoric and oratory. Toft remains faithful to the ways these principles were explained in the period, and thus breathes new life into this vital art form. With Passionate Voice is sure to be essential for vocalists, teachers and coaches of early music repertoire.

Whenever I speak with aspiring Hollywood writers, the first question they ask is ¡§How do I break in? How do I get an agent and how do I get that first job.¡¨ But getting an agent and that first job isn¡¦t going to get you very far. What aspiring writers should be asking is ¡§How do I build a successful career in Hollywood?¡¨ The agent and the first job is just the beginning. Hollywood is full of writers who sold one or two scripts and were never heard from again. What it takes to succeed on your first job and then build on it to get the next job and the next is what separates the ¡§one script wonder¡¨ from the writer with a Hollywood career. Among the questions aspiring writers really need to ask are: « How Do I Know When My Spec Script Is Ready For Submission? « What Does An Agent Look For In A Writer Beyond Their Scripts? « Once I Have An Agent What Else Should I Be Doing? « When I Go To A ¡§Meet & Greet,¡¨ What Do I Say? « How Do I Prepare For The Different Types Of Pitch Meetings? « How Do I Handle Notes I Disagree With? « Do I Need A Lawyer And A Manager? Most writers discover the answers to these questions through trial and error. But in Hollywood, errors can be costly to a writer¡¦s career. More than one writer has seen his career thwarted due to a simple lack of awareness. The goal of ¡§Writing For The Hollywood $¡¨ is to arm aspiring writers with as much information as possible so not only will the road to their first agent and sale be easier, but they¡¦ll also be able to avoid costly mistakes and have a much better chance of turning that first job into a another and another. ¡§Writing For The Hollywood $¡¨ begins by asking the writer to do some serious self-examination as it lists the basic ¡§ingredients¡¨ beyond a good script that a writer will need if they expect to build a career as a Hollywood writer. From here it goes on to cover topics such as dealing with executives, the different types of pitch meetings, the script notes process, the realities of working on a television writing staff and avoiding potential land mines that can damage a writer¡¦s forward progress. ¡§Writing for The Hollywood $¡¨ provides invaluable information for anyone who¡¦s ever aspired to write for the screen, by someone who¡¦s actually been there and done it.

A New York Times Notable Book In her spare, stark style, Annie Ernaux documents the desires and indignities of a human heart ensnared in an all-consuming passion. Blurring the line between fact and fiction, an unnamed narrator attempts to plot the emotional and physical course of her two-year relationship with a married foreigner where every word, event, and person either provides a connection with her beloved or is subject to her cold indifference. With courage and exactitude, she seeks the truth behind an existence lived entirely for someone else, and, in the pieces of its aftermath, she is able to find it.

Praise for A Passion for Giving "Klein and Berrie have produced a great book that manages to make complex issues simple. It blends with grace and craft the deep with the practical and the concrete with the philosophical. It is a precious tool for both the neophyte and the experienced philanthropist. It is both a useful manual and a profound exploration of the core values of giving. In a word, this book is a true gift." –Andres Spokoiny, President and CEO, Jewish Funders Network "Through the years, many people have asked us why we set up our family foundation and how we went about accomplishing this goal. The 'why' is easy to answer: we are fortunate enough to be able to give back and help others in need. The 'how' is perfectly explained in this compelling and very informative book by Peter Klein and Angelica Berrie." –Marilyn and Barry Rubenstein, The Marilyn and Barry Rubenstein Family Foundation "This book should be required reading for new donors and experienced philanthropists. Klein and Berrie have crafted a winning combination of practical guidelines and heartfelt personal accounts to create a moving call to action for anyone who wishes to give back. The stories remind us that when philanthropy, an intensely personal journey, is coupled with deep learning, transformation occurs for both the recipient and the donor." –Debra Mesch, PhD, Professor and Director, Women's Philanthropy Institute, IUPUI "I wish I could have had this book to guide me and refer to as my wife, Andrea, and I launched our Harbor Glow Foundation a decade ago. We would have been much more efficient in the process and more focused in our direction from the get-go. Peter and Angelica capture the spirit and nitty-gritty of a family foundation." –Michael Leeds, Co-Chair, Harbor Glow Foundation
