A Short History Of Richard Kline

by Amanda Lohrey, A Short History Of Richard Kline Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download A Short History Of Richard Kline book, I woke with a gasp. And lay in the dark, open-mouthed, holding my breath. That feeling . . . that feeling was indescribable. For a moment I had felt as if I were falling . . . falling into bliss. All his life, Richard Kline has been haunted by a sense that something is lacking. He envies the ease with which others slip into contented suburban life or the pursuit of wealth. As he moves into middle age, Richard grows angry, cynical, depressed. But then a strange event, a profound epiphany, awakens him to a different way of life. He finds himself on a quest, almost against his will, to resolve the “divine discontent” he has suffered since childhood. From pharmaceuticals to New Age therapies to finding a guru, Richard's journey dramatises the search for meaning in today's world. This audacious novel is an exploration of masculinity, the mystical and our very human yearning for something more. It is hypnotic, nuanced and Amanda Lohrey's finest offering yet - a pilgrim's progress for the here and now. Shortlisted, 2015 Queensland Literary Awards Shortlisted, 2015 Tasmanian Premier's Literary Prizes Longlisted, 2016 Stella Prize ‘Lohrey’s language throughout the novel is a searing delight ... Without patronising, disparaging or becoming a sentimental accomplice, she gets inside the head of a serious man congenitally on the brink.’ —Age ‘The nature of such mystical questing requires a steadiness of pace and a commanding style in order to prevent it floating up and away into the unfathomable ... Lohrey’s skill is in keeping us suspended in the cocoon of an idea – “Is this all there is?’ – a question that hums in and out of our own lives during the day, but which can suddenly ring out on dark nights with a deafening thunder.’ —Saturday Paper ‘[A] lyrical, bold exploration’ —Australian Book Review Amanda Lohrey is the author of the acclaimed novels Camille’s Bread, Vertigo and The Morality of Gentlemen, as well as the award-winning short story collection Reading Madame Bovary. She has also written two Quarterly Essays: Groundswell and Voting for Jesus. In 2012 she was awarded the Patrick White Literary Award.

The Morality Of Gentlemen

by Amanda Lohrey, The Morality Of Gentlemen Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Morality Of Gentlemen book, This Australian novel is now back in print.A true classic, The Morality of Gentlemen was first published in 1984. It is one of a few great political novels ever written by an Australian about Australia political conditions. Editor of Overland, Ian Syson who writes the introduction to this publication says that it is the book that Frank Hardy spent his life trying to write.The author Amanda Lohrey is one of Australia s leading novelists and social commentators. She grew up the daughter of a waterside worker and calls on the semantic tendrils of this early experience in this authentic literary masterpiece. In The Morality of Gentlemen Amanda Lohrey uses a writing technique that derives as much from the great Dos Passos as it does from the German playwright Brecht. With the skill of a true artist she has created a full-blooded political narrative that is gripping to read and has the sweep, colour and ambition we usually associated with the great European writers of the twentieth century.The Morality of Gentlemen is a unique Australian history as relevant today as it was when first published in the 1980s. It tell a story from within the perspective of working class culture of intelligent, ironic and sophisticated men and women dealing with the timeless challenge of oppression by the rich and the political Right.

The Postsecular Sacred

by David Tacey, The Postsecular Sacred Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Postsecular Sacred book, In The Postsecular Sacred: Jung, Soul and Meaning in an Age of Change, David Tacey presents a unique psychological study of the postsecular, adding a Jungian perspective to a debate shaped by sociology, philosophy and religious studies. In this interdisciplinary exploration, Tacey looks at the unexpected return of the sacred in Western societies, and how the sacred is changing our understanding of humanity and culture. Beginning with Jung’s belief that the psyche has never been secular, Tacey examines the new desire for spiritual experience and presents a logic of the unconscious to explain it. Tacey argues that what has fuelled the postsecular momentum is the awareness that something is missing, and the idea that this could be buried in the unconscious is dawning on sociologists and philosophers. While the instinct to connect to something greater is returning, Tacey shows that this need not imply that we are regressing to superstitions that science has rejected. The book explores indigenous spirituality in the context of the need to reanimate the world, not by going back to the past but by being inspired by it. There are chapters on ecopsychology and quantum physics, and, using Australia as a case study, the book also examines the resistance of secular societies to becoming postsecular. Approaching postsecularism through a Jungian perspective, Tacey argues that we should understand God in a manner that accords with the time, not go back to archaic, rejected images of divinity. The sacred is returning in an age of terrorism, and this is not without significance in terms of the ‘explosive’ impact of spirituality in our time. Innovative and relevant to the world we live in, this will be of great interest to academics and scholars of Jungian studies, anthropology, indigenous studies, philosophy, religious studies and sociology due to its transdisciplinary scope. It would also be a useful resource for analytical psychologists, Jungian analysts and psychotherapists.
