              Pablo Picasso: The Aphrodite Period (1924-1936)
                

              Pablo Picasso: The Aphrodite Period (1924-1936) (PDF ebook)

              By Mallen, Enrique

              As early as the ancient Greeks, goddesses served as Muses for artistic creation. In essence, a creatively charged energy inspired the artist, leaving a unique and recognizable mark on the artwork. Picasso's relationships with the women in his life was deeply formative, and he oft...en represented them as Muses. He was particularly unabashed in the declaration of his feelings to one of them, Marie-Therese Walter, his youthful mistress of 1927. But at that point Picasso was still married to Olga Khokhlova, thus forced to practice the utmost discretion. His marriage to Olga made him increasingly frustrated with her imposed bourgeois expectations. As a release from this marital burden, Marie-Therese was ever present in his work, often portrayed as Aphrodite with a wreath in her hair, a basket of flowers and fruits by her side. Marie-Therese was the Dream – the Muse. This fertile period coincided with the strong influence of surrealism which helped liberate Picasso's psyche from the straitjacket that Olga's lifestyle imposed on him. By 1935, however, the model and mistress became a mother to Maya, radically changing the role she previously had. The following year Picasso was introduced to a new woman, Dora Maar, an encounter that signalled the beginning of the end of Marie-Therese's exclusive claim on Picasso's affections and the closing of an artistic period clearly marked by fertility. The Aphrodite Period (1924–1936) provides new insights and analysis of Picasso's life as recently uncovered through the research of the Online Picasso Project. This time-span is one of the most illustrative periods of Picasso's career in that it clearly demonstrates the close interdependence between sexuality and artistic creativity that characterize Picasso's entire output.

              Q & A (EPUB ebook)

              By Cunningham, M. Allen

              Kenyon Saint Claire is the son of a distinguished literary family, a keeper and teacher of the written word, but his America is a land of small screens, moving images, big pharma, high-tech distraction, and endless advertising. False impressions are the stock-in-trade, and big me...trics matter, especially onscreen. That's where Kenyon finds himself, drawn into the electronic environs of primetime television, isolated behind glass, portraying a televised version of himself on a scripted game show, as cameras feed his image to fifteen million viewers. The year is 1956. Inspired by true events, employing a groundbreaking form that evokes our agitated, media-soaked century, M. Allen Cunningham's Q&A urgently animates America's misunderstood quiz show scandals in light of our own time, as a moment of cultural reckoning whose reverberations we feel all around us today: in reality television, TV politics, the triumph of incoherence, and the pandemic problem of how to be real in a world of screen-induced self-deception. Stuck in his televised box, Kenyon must confront the win-or-lose proposition of his age and answer his toughest question yet: When the world and its machines are so busy creating us, how can we possibly create ourselves?

              The The Outlook for Earthlings
                

              The The Outlook for Earthlings (EPUB ebook)

              By Frank, Joan

              THE OUTLOOK FOR EARTHLINGS traces an unusual, difficult friendship across a lifetime, between women of stunningly opposite natures. Melanie Taper is rule-bound, timid, compelled to obey and venerate authority. Yet in unguarded moments she demonstrates such deadly insight into hum...an foibles as to suggest a strength that has, for dark reasons, deliberately hidden itself lifelong. "No woman," she notes, "can declare a man is wonderful, like one who doesn't know him." Scarlet Rand, by contrast, is rash, willful, abrasive, impatient of reverence of any stripe. She is vexed by "demure" traits and "small fussing motions." Scarlet is shocked by Mel's passive reserve; by her strained, almost archaic meekness. Despite her obvious gifts, Mel is - bafflingly - self-erasing. Mel's Billy Budd-like saintliness maddens Scarlet-because finally and most troublingly, Scarlet disbelieves it. Their friendship, begun in high school and resumed in midlife, suggests to each a final frontier, a saving sanctuary. Yet at its core, a pained impasse soon becomes evident: Each woman takes a secret, moral offense at the other's inmost nature-and choices. Living out these differences-against awareness of the illness which is slowly destroying one of them-proves an ultimate challenge. In each, a reckoning must occur. THE OUTLOOK FOR EARTHLINGS examines what women want, amid conflicting layers of need-between privacy and exposure, solitude and society, authenticity and connection, expectation and actuality. It ponders beginnings, endings, and Virginia Woolf's declaration that good angels must be killed. It considers the limits of friendship-and of the act of witnessing. At its heart, it asks how we may finally measure a life-and who should do the measuring.EARTHLINGS tracks the trajectory of a problematic friendship over a lifetime, between two women of opposite natures who are nevertheless perhaps too close.

              Knee Deep (EPUB ebook)

              By Hoeffner, Karol Ann

              Named after a hurricane, Camille is the rebellious 16-year-old daughter of a New Orleans bar-owner who grows up in the shadow of Bourbon Street, raised on stories of hauntings, lusty encounters and voodoo magic. And even though her family loses their home in a hurricane, she coun...ts herself among the lucky until she discovers that her 18-year-old Creole neighbor whom she secretly loves died heroically in the storm. Devastated by Antwone's death, Camille begins taking unnecessary risks as if to prove she can be safe in an unsafe world. Her downward spiral is stopped by a spirit intercession. Based on the strength of her love and with the help of a dead voodoo queen, Camille wills Antwone back to earth. Because she is the only one who can see him - not his grandmother or his ex-girlfriend - she takes a kind of ownership of him in death that she never had in life. But gradually, she seeks something in their union beyond sex or love or passion-an understanding of the thin line between life and death itself and a need to find answers where none might lie. Camille's story unfolds as a Mardi Gras memoir, one girl's journey through the parties and parades as her community comes together and rises up from the chaos following the devastating storm. Like all good tales born of the bayou, hers involves the dead, the living, and the one trapped in the brackish waters between heaven and hell - a story of true love and true disaster.
