When Plato set his dialogs, written texts were disseminated primarily by performance and recitation. He wrote them, however, when literacy was expanding. Jill Frank argues that there are unique insights to be gained from appreciating Plato’s dialogs as written texts to be read and reread. At the center of these insights are two distinct ways of learning to read in the dialogs. One approach that appears in the Statesman, Sophist, and Protagoras, treats learning to read as a top-down affair, in which authoritative teachers lead students to true beliefs. Another, recommended by Socrates, encourages trial and error and the formation of beliefs based on students’ own fallible experiences. In all of these dialogs, learning to read is likened to coming to know or understand something. Given Plato’s repeated presentation of the analogy between reading and coming to know, what can these two approaches tell us about his dialogs’ representations of philosophy and politics? With Poetic Justice, Jill Frank overturns the conventional view that the Republic endorses a hierarchical ascent to knowledge and the authoritarian politics associated with that philosophy. When learning to read is understood as the passive absorption of a teacher’s beliefs, this reflects the account of Platonic philosophy as authoritative knowledge wielded by philosopher kings who ruled the ideal city. When we learn to read by way of the method Socrates introduces in the Republic, Frank argues, we are offered an education in ethical and political self-governance, one that prompts citizens to challenge all claims to authority, including those of philosophy.

"Want to be taken to another world, a time and place you have only dreamed of but never dared go? Justice will be your guide: looking into your soul, fifi nding your passion within, taking you into a dark and mysterious world, and screaming gotcha! Do not fear, witness the beauty which the darkness holds: sadness, hope, desire, a sea of emotions in every word. Let go and free your mind. Dance with Justice in the darkness and feel your passion." ~A. Hults "Justice proves social media and technology are weak imitators against creative writing, and insists on prying the reader's mind open with complicit care or, when necessary, a thought provoking, poetic battering ram. Hints of romantic bliss, inhumane punishment, and righting the wrongs of mankind's foolishness are abundant and uplifting, yet happy endings are not guaranteed. The reader needs to spend less time attempting to understand the motivation and more on what wild ride this literary carnival barker will point toward next. Justice presents a beguiling canvas, demanding the individual reader decide how every story should end." ~D. Smith "Turn the lights down low, get comfortable, and open the cover of Poetic Justice and be swept away into another time and place. Justice lifts you to the pinnacle of desire and leaves you shaking your head at the injustice around us. Dark and alluring, this book reaches into the fabric of your soul, and with biting nails pulls you into the ecstasy contained within." ~J. Bouyat

Everybody's got that one dream! You know..."C'mon lotto"... or "If I ever get rich and famous" kinda dream. Here's mine... I've always wanted to own this big ol' Victorian house, with the wrap around porch and the rotunda! Inside would be practice rooms, a recording studio, and a great room that would have built in bookshelves filled with books on poets, and musicians, and music. In another large room would be a stage for poetry readings and acoustic nights and such. A non-profit creative arts school! FREELANCE & FREEDOM PERFORMING ARTS! The cost would be on a sliding scale for most and free to those who don't have the means to pursue their creative art in music. It would be an environment that would provide music lessons and/or explore creativity and dreams in music. I've wanted to do this ever since I saw the movie Billy Jack! The character Jean ran a school where creativity was key to finding yourself and also a place providing a human service. That was when I first put creative arts providing a human service together! I have worked in human service related jobs for over twenty years. I have been writing since childhood and loved music since birth. So in addition to "C'mon lotto"..."If I ever get rich and famous"...have you ever heard anyone say..."Someday I'm gonna write a book!" Working a job where I could use my creativity was always my first choice, but, like so many other people I was pushed to get a "real job". So I pondered...and I thought...what if I write a book? It would give me personal satisfaction and pride...'real riches don't have dollar signs'...and if it did make a few bucks, I could donate 'money' to a human service cause! Creative art providing a human service! Livin' the dream... Now isn't that just poetic justice?

When cantankerous old Alfonse Sweetzer is found murdered in the art room of the Wyleyville Public Library, the list of suspects could include this whole Maine village. His rude and arrogant behavior has made him the least liked man in town. But topping the list of suspects is library director Jessie Tyler. Not only does she have the means and the opportunity, she has a powerful motive. Two years ago her husband was mowed down and killed by Sweetzer while the older man was driving his robin egg blue Cadillac. Sweetzer was given a slap on the wrist by the court, and the man continued his hazardous driving habits, while showing no remorse for his actions. Before the death of her husband, life had been close to perfect for Jessie who lives at Killdeer Farm, her dream house in the country. Inherited from her grandparents, the farm takes her back to better days when she shared it with family. Jessie can't let Sweetzer get the best of her even in his death. With her neighbor Cassie, the two attempt to solve the murder before Jessie or her son is hauled away in handcuffs.

Student riots have ravaged the distinguished New York City university where Kate Fansler teaches. In the ensuing disarray, the survival of the university's plebeian stepchild, University College, seems doubtful.

It is a fight to the death, and only a miracle--or perhaps a murder--can save their beloved institution. . . .

'Poetic Justice' is a compilation of many years of poetry writing, that occurred at inspirational moments in the poet's lifetime. It reflects on reality, the absurd, the ideal and capitalizes on an over all rhythm, through rhyme and the explosive reiteration of iambic pentameter, that is an original style the poet has developed, as a signature kind of writing; Perhaps out of the love of expressive overtures that are more memorable as the poet 'throws the book' at the reader; WHO escapes justice? Where? What? Why? Displayed in a tiny plethora of reason derived out of the madness in a troubled world, slowly watching the old ways slipping away, wondering if you want to be a part of it in the new age? If you will be, and if so what microcosm within the macrocosm will hold you captive? Concomitantly supposes the ultimate question on existence should be asked or at least acknowledged. Gladness considered as merely a by-product, if and only if, it is incidental. Here today, gone tomorrow may not be far from the whole truth, so an exact account of your experiences and visual accuity are of the utmost importance. Without this exactitude, perhaps just a farce would suffice and undeserving of one's attention or merit altogether. In essence, in a truly, deadly serious world, 'Poetic Justice' approaches this predicament in life as the copacetic manner for one's own well being. You could really get into a lot of trouble around here if you don't at least care about aspiring to a perfect World, even if that isn't going to happen for some individuals.

Laird of a small estate, Will Alexander of Menstrie, poet and tutor, was a man of modest ambitions. But when James VI learned of his poetic genius, the king had other plans for him. In 1603, when James VI of Scotland became James I of England, he summoned Will to London and commanded him to translate the Psalms for the new royal version of the Bible in English - which remains the definitive edition to this day. At the English court, Will Alexander consorted with the most famous poets of the age including Shakespeare and Jonson. By the time he died, the humble Scottish laird had become Earl of Stirling, Viscount of Canada, Governor of Nova Scotia and Secretary of State for Scotland. Laced with intrigue and absorbing historical detail, Nigel Tranter charts the extraordinary rise of William Alexander of Menstrie.

Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your Savior? I know that in order for this book to have the impact on you that I pray it does, you need to know your Creator and Savior. You need to know the mercy of God and how incredible He is. This book is meant to help you walk a little closer to God. If you have not done so, I urge you to take a moment and pray. God doesn't want anyone to be lost, including you and me. Just pray to Him that you know He died for your sins and that you need Him in your heart and life. Tell Him you are sorry, and let Him know you are submitting to His will. And by all means, tell Him you love Him. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except by Him. There is no other way to heaven. You will be so glad you submitted, and now join me and countless others as we learn more about God and as we walk toward heaven. In the form of poetry, I have written about some well-known characters of the Bible and some you may not know. You will see the way God has worked in the lives of many people, some of whom you may not think deserve His mercy and grace. I hope it encourages you to pick up the Bible and read for yourself God's amazing love story.

Literature reveals the intense efforts of moral imagination required to articulate what justice is and how it might be satisfied. Examining a wide variety of texts including Shakespeare's plays, Gilbert and Sullivan's operas, and modernist poetics, Poetic Justice and Legal Fictions explores how literary laws and values illuminate and challenge the jurisdiction of justice and the law. Jonathan Kertzer examines how justice is articulated by its command of, or submission to, time, nature, singularity, truth, transcendence and sacrifice, marking the distance between the promise of justice to satisfy our moral and sociable needs and its failure to do so. Poetic Justice and Legal Fictions will be invaluable reading for scholars of the law within literature and amongst modernist and twentieth century literature specialists.

At the end of the book you will find Author Notes. It describes how to write a Haiku poem, which was the homework assignment in the story. Also, written on the blackboard on page 2 are ten vocabulary words. All of the those vocabulary words are found in the story.

Includes a foreword by Spike Lee, the screenplay for the film Poetic Justice (starring Janet Jackson), poetry by Maya Angelou, and sixteen pages of photographs from the set At twenty-four, John Singleton became the youngest filmmaker and only African American to ever be nominated for Best Director (and Best Screenplay) for Boyz N the Hood, his debut feature film. Only a year after receiving such sensational acclaim, Singleton returned to the Hood with Poetic Justice, a movie starring Janet Jackson and featuring the poetry of Maya Angelou. In this vivid document of moviemaking, Premiere editor Veronica Chambers shadows Singleton from the early days of preproduction through the final editing, moving from the streets of South Central to Oakland to Big Sur and beyond. By recording the daily struggles and triumphs of the cast and crew, she captures the unique voice and vision of a singular American filmmaker. "In Boyz N the Hood, [John Singleton] was able to capture something very real, an element in black American life, maybe all of American life--the duality of our life, the ambiguity, the schizoid nature of our life. And that is that we are loving people who become destroyers; we are destructive people who become love. Quite often, we are portrayed as things with no redeeming qualities or Martin Luther Kings with no chicanery, no cruelty. John had the courage to give life to these falsehoods."--Maya Angelou
