Defining poetry as the 'overflow of powerful feelings' and 'emotion recollected in tranquillity', Wordsworth adopts two of the key claims of British Whig aesthetics: the centrality of affect to human being, and the need to regulate said affect.

Main Street: The Story of Carol Kennicott - Sinclair Lewis

Main Street: The Story of Carol Kennicott - Sinclair Lewis
Nabu Press | April 22 2010 | English | ISBN-10: 1149121130 | epub | 1.06 Mb

Novel by Sinclair Lewis, published in 1920. The story of Main Street is seen through the eyes of Carol Kennicott, a young woman married to a Midwestern doctor who settles in the Minnesota town of Gopher Prairie (modeled on Lewis' hometown of Sauk Center). The power of the book derives from Lewis' careful rendering of local speech, customs, and social amenities. The satire is double-edged–directed against both the townspeople and the superficial intellectualism of those who despise them.

The Battle of Chile, which chronicles the tumultuous last months of Salvador Allende’s Popular Unity government (1970-1973) in Chile, has been internationally hailed as a powerful historical portrait of the passions of a people divided and a nation on the brink of civil war.

“La Batalla de Chile” es un documental histórico que en las décadas de los 70 y 80 fue distribuido en 35 países del mundo. No es un filme de archivo: es un documento filmado en el momento mismo de producirse los hechos. Su autor y director trabajó con un equipo en medio de los acontecimientos. El material virgen (película de l6 MM en blanco y negro) fue una contribución del documentalista francés Chris Marker y el montaje se realizó gracias a la colaboración el Instituto de Cinematografía Cubano (ICAIC). Jorge Müller Silva (el cámara del filme) fue secuestrado por la policía ilitar de Pinochet en noviembre de 1974. Hasta hoy se desconoce su paradero. Es uno de los 3.000 desaparecidos que todavía hay en Chile. “La Batalla de Chile” ha sido objeto de la censura en Chile y nunca ha sido emitida por la televisión pública.

Louise Erdrich's mesmerizing new novel, her first in almost three years, centers on a compelling mystery. The unsolved murder of a farm family haunts the small, white, off-reservation town of Pluto, North Dakota. The vengeance exacted for this crime and the subsequent distortions of truth transform the lives of Ojibwe living on the nearby reservation and shape the passions of both communities for the next generation. The descendants of Ojibwe and white intermarry, their lives intertwine; only the youngest generation, of mixed blood, remains unaware of the role the past continues to play in their lives.

In 1982, with Ronald Reagan in the White House and much of America torn between a newly fierce patriotism and the dispassionate conservatism of the dawning "Greed Is Good" era, a number of roots-oriented rock musicians began examining the State of the Union in song, and one of the most powerful albums to come out of this movement was Bruce Springsteen's stark, home-recorded masterpiece Nebraska.
