The Writer in Petrograd and the House of Arts

I believe you'll understand that it's so hard for me to write, unlike any author in the
course of human history: some have written for their contemporaries, others for
their successors, but no one has ever written for their forebears, or for beings like

Founded by Maksim Gorky and Kornei Chukovsky in 1919 and disbanded in 1922, the Petrograd House of Arts occupied a crucial moment in Russia's cultural history. By chronicling the rise and fall of this literary landmark, this book conveys in greater depth and detail than ever before a significant but little studied period in Soviet literature. Poised between Russian culture's past and her Soviet future, between pre- and post-Revolutionary generations, this once lavish private home on the Nevsky Prospekt housed as many as fifty-six poets, novelists, critics, and artists at one time, during a period of great social and political turbulence. And as such, Hickey contends, the House of Arts served as a crucible for a literature in transition. Hickey shows how the House of Arts, though virtually ignored by Soviet-era cultural historians, played a critical role in shaping the lively literature of the next decade, a literature often straddling the border between fiction and non-fiction. Considering prose writers such as Yevgeny Zamyatin, Olga Forsh, the Serapion Brothers group, Viktor Shklovsky, Boris Eikhenbaum, as well as poets including Alexander Blok, Nikolay Gumilev, Anna Radlova, Osip Mandelstam, and Vladislav Khodasevich, she traces the comings and goings at the House of Arts: the meetings and readings and lectures and, most of all, the powerful influence of these interactions on those who briefly lived and worked there. In her work, the Petrograd House of Arts appears for the first time in all its complexity and importance, as a focal point for the social and cultural ferment of the day, and a turning point in the direction of Russian literature and criticism.

One of Edith Wharton’s most accomplished social satires, this novel tells the story of the beautiful but impoverished New York socialite Lily Bart, whose refusal to compromise in her search for a husband leads to her exclusion from polite society. In charting the course of Lily’s life and downfall, Wharton also provides a wider picture of a society in transition, a milieu in which old certainties, manners, and morals no longer hold true, and where the individual has become an expendable commodity. This classic American novel is now available in a Broadview edition that includes a critical introduction and a rich selection of contextual documents. Appendices include Wharton’s correspondence about The House of Mirth, contemporary articles on social mores, etiquette, and dress, and related writings by Henry James, Thorstein Veblen, and Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

In the mountains of western North Carolina, a widowed mother lives with her only child, a son whom she bore as the result of being raped. She simply refers to him as 'The Writer' because of what he seems to do best in life. He has just graduated from high school and is finally redeemed from years of abuse and ridicule from his fellow peers who simply refused to understand his unusual, silent behavior as well as his deep devotion to serving God and following the footsteps of a man called Jesus. In spite of all that, he has managed to surround himself with a band of few but loyal true friends who build him up when he is weak and on the brink of losing faith. Not knowing what God wants him to do with his life after high school, The Writer is unaware that he is headed for disaster thanks to his unstable friendship with a rebellious youth named Rusty, a crazed pervert who is only out to deceive and hurt anyone he can, including The Writer, as well as ravaging any girl he can get his hands on. The Writer firmly believes that he can encourage Rusty to change his ways, despite the desperate pleas of protest from his mother, his friends, and Annie, his favorite girl who once dated Rusty and knows what a devious monster he is. Along with this, The Writer is struggling with the talent he is known for, having been unable to write due to the sudden changes in his life involving Rusty, graduation, and his uncertain future. Everything changes one night when The Writer brings in an injured stranger from off the streets. It is a simple and innocent act of charity that will forever change his life. The stranger takes The Writer on a memorable journey through life as he's never lived it before, ajourney that will come to a cruel and damaging end when Rusty unleashes his ultimate hatred and fury upon The Writer.

Recognizing personal tendencies and developing literary talents enabled Mary Flannery O'Connor to don multiple masks, concealing or revealing segments of herself as she desired. With no memoirs or lengthy autobiographies, O'Connor's published works, letters, manuscripts, along with previously unpublished letters are examined to determine how O'Connor defined herself, not just how other scholars interpret her life and works. In fact, the plethora of criticism is in danger of obscuring the most important authority: O'Connor herself...Carl Jung claimed that adopted personas allow people ways to conform to society acceptably. While O'Connor's personal and social masks were affected by her Southern and Catholic roots, her vivid imagination and artistry fashioned her literary masks, allowing her to explore life's grotesqueness. Some of O'Connor's literary characters shelter self-defining features of her own personality and purpose. O'Connor's masks serve as metaphorical embodiments of her veiled autobiography, illuminating key components of her sense of self and of her literary power. Sharp's exploration of these society-obligatory and self-imposed masks identify O'Connor's goals, struggles, and successes; her critical insight into her own literature; her reaction and responses to family, friends, and acquaintances; and, ultimately, her own success and growth.

This inspiring book describes the treatment approach, the clientele, and the community networking of Cedar House, a pioneering and successful child abuse treatment program in Long Beach, California. Cedar House: A Model Child Abuse Treatment Program explains Cedar House’s hands-on treatment of families in which children have been abused. Each facet of the treatment process is explored and explained. The authors offer ideas on how the treatment they used can be adapted to your own treatment setting. Cedar House: A Model Child Abuse Treatment Program gives practitioners hope, ideas, and support for hands-on work with multiproblem individuals and families, along with some pitfalls to avoid. Those treating clients who attempt to intimidate with bullying behavior or outbursts can gain understanding and more confidence to deal with others’anger. In addition, therapists and administrators will find ideas for the prevention of burnout.

In the last decades of the nineteenth century, two thousand women physicians formed a significant and lively scientific community in the United States. Many were active writers; they participated in the development of medical record-keeping and research, and they wrote self-help books, social and political essays, fiction, and poetry. Out of the Dead House rediscovers the contributions these women made to the developing practice of medicine and to a community of women in science. Susan Wells combines studies of medical genres, such as the patient history or the diagnostic conversation, with discussions of individual writers. The women she discusses include Ann Preston, the first woman dean of a medical college; Hannah Longshore, a successful practitioner who combined conventional and homeopathic medicine; Rebecca Crumpler, the first African American woman physician to publish a medical book; and Mary Putnam Jacobi, writer of more than 180 medical articles and several important books. Wells shows how these women learned to write, what they wrote, and how these texts were read. Out of the Dead House also documents the ways that women doctors influenced medical discourse during the formation of the modern profession. They invented forms and strategies for medical research and writing, including methods of using survey information, taking patient histories, and telling case histories. Out of the Dead House adds a critical episode to the developing story of women as producers and critics of culture, including scientific culture.
