This book explores a relatively small, but interesting and anomalous, region of Alberta between the North Saskatchewan and the Battle Rivers. Ecological themes, such as climatic cycles, ground water availability, vegetation succession and the response of wildlife, and the impact of fires, shape the possibilities and provide the challenges to those who have called the region home or used its varied resources: Indians, Metis, and European immigrants.
Film and the City: The Urban Imaginary in Canadian Cinema (Athabasca University Press)

Film and the City: The Urban Imaginary in Canadian Cinema (Athabasca University Press) by George Melnyk
English | Apr. 1, 2014 | ISBN: 1927356598 | 319 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Most Canadians are city dwellers, a fact often unacknowledged by twentieth-century Canadian films, with their preference for themes of wilderness survival or rural life. Modernist Canadian films tend to support what film scholar Jim Leach calls "the nationalist-realist project," a documentary style that emphasizes the exoticism and mythos of the land.
The Ruby in the Dust: Poetry and History of the Indian Padmâvat by Sufi Poet Muhammad Jâyasî (AUP - Leiden University Press)

The Ruby in the Dust: Poetry and History of the Indian Padmâvat by Sufi Poet Muhammad Jâyasî (AUP - Leiden University Press) by Thomas de Bruijn
English | Aug. 15, 2013 | ISBN: 9087281129 | 373 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

The epic poem Padmâvat, written in 1540 by the Indian Muslim poet Muhammad Jâyasî, has often been read through the lens of contemporary Hindu and Muslim identity. But Thomas de Bruijn rejects the projection of modern notions of national and religious culture onto the poem, and instead looks to Jâyasî’s own time to find insight into the work.
The Twilight of the Avant-Garde: Spanish Poetry 1980-2000 (Liverpool University Press - Contemporary French & Francophone Cultu

The Twilight of the Avant-Garde: Spanish Poetry 1980-2000 (Liverpool University Press - Contemporary French & Francophone Cultures) by Jonathan Mayhew
English | May 1, 2009 | ISBN: 1846311837 | 179 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Twilight of the Avant-Garde: Spanish Poetry 1980-2000 addresses the central problem of contemporary Spanish poetry: the attempt to preserve the scope and ambitiousness of modernist poetry at the end of the twentieth century. Jonathan Mayhew first offers a critical analysis of the called 'poetry of experience' of Luis García Montero, a tendency that is based on the supposed obsolescence of the modernist poetics of the first half of the century. While the 'poetry of experience' presents itself as a progressive attempt to 'normalise' poetry, to make it accessible to the common reader, Mayhew views it as a reactionary move that ultimately reduces poetry to the status of a minor genre.
