Pauline by Alexandre Dumas Book Summary:
En 1830, au cours d'une chasse au sanglier, Pauline de Meulien rencontre le comte Horace de Beuzeval, un homme énigmatique et fascinant, réputé pour son courage et son sang-froid sans égal. Pauline est immédiatement séduite et épouse le comte quelques mois plus tard. Un soir, celui-ci lui fait part de son intention d'aller chasser avec des amis sur des terres qu'il possède en Normandie. Bientôt, Pauline restée seule, s'inquiète, car la région où se trouve son mari est le théâtre de vols et d'assassinats accomplis avec une grande audace. Elle décide de le rejoindre... pour son malheur. Ce roman que Dumas écrivit seul et fit publier en 1838, est un bijou du roman noir. S'inspirant de la vogue frénétique à la mode au début du siècle, le romancier nous entraîne dans un monde de passages souterrains, de portes dérobées, d'abbayes en ruines, de duels et de passions romantiques - frissons garantis - pour notre plus grand plaisir.
Texts and Contexts: Gospels and Pauline Studies Book Summary:
Texts and Contexts honors the life and scholarship of David E. Garland. Fifteen colleagues, friends, and former students each offer a study on one of the canonical Gospels or Paul's letters, demonstrating how these texts continue to reveal new surprises and a wealth of resources for service to the gospel.Throughout his productive career as a New Testament scholar―first at the Southern Seminary and later at Baylor University's George W. Truett Theological Seminary―Garland became widely known and highly regarded for his wise and careful interpretive work. His commentaries on the Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke) as well as Paul's letters (1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Philippians, Colossians, and Philemon) exemplify careful, thoughtful, and faithful biblical scholarship in service of both the academy and the church.This present volume begins with five studies on Gospels texts and the Jesus tradition (Margaret E. Ramey, Richard Bauckham, Mikeal C. Parsons, Andrew E. Arterbury, and Craig L. Blomberg). Five essays on Pauline passages and interpretation follow (Todd D. Still, Mark A. Seifrid, Craig S. Keener, Bradley Arnold, and Klyne R. Snodgrass). Five homilies round out the collection (Ben Witherington III, W. Hulitt Gloer, Bill J. Leonard, Timothy George, and Daniel O. Aleshire). Even as this book celebrates and commemorates what Garland has already done, it anticipates scholarship yet to be received.
Pauline E. Hopkins: A Literary Biography by Hanna Wallinger Book Summary:
Virtually unknown for the better part of the twentieth century, Pauline E. Hopkins (1859-1930) is one of the most interesting rediscoveries of recent African American literary history. This is the first study devoted exclusively to Hopkins’s life and her influential career as an editor, political writer, social critic, pioneering playwright, biographer, and fiction writer. Hanna Wallinger’s discoveries break much new ground, especially regarding Hopkins’s relationship with such notable men and women as Booker T. Washington and Anna Julia Cooper, her position in Boston’s black women’s club movement, her work with the Boston-based Colored American Magazine, and her concepts of race, gender, and class.Drawing on recently discovered letters, Wallinger sheds new light on the relationship between Hopkins and Booker T. Washington, particularly the acrimony surrounding Hopkins’s departure from the Colored American Magazine. She discusses Hopkins’s pseudonymous writings in addition to those written under the known alias Sarah A. Allen. Wallinger interprets Hopkins’s play Peculiar Sam, her now famous novels (Contending Forces, Hagar’s Daughter, Winona, and Of One Blood), and the short stories, which have so far received little critical attention. This study also contains the little-known but important text A Primer of Facts. Republished here for the first time, it establishes Hopkins as an early advocate of black nationalism and one of the few women writers who joined this discourse.Hopkins, writes Wallinger, “was on the scene when race consciousness was being defined.” This important new study reveals her role at the center of crucial debates about the cultural politics of magazine editing, radical activism, and the early feminist movement.
The Unruly Voice: REDISCOVERING PAULINE ELIZABETH HOPKINS Book Summary:
The Unruly Voice explores the literary and journalistic career of Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins, a turn-of-the-century African American writer who was editor in chief of the Colored American Magazine, though it was not acknowledged on the masthead. Hopkins wrote short fiction, novels, nonfiction articles, and a play believed to be the first by an African American woman. Versatile and politically committed, she was fired when the magazine was bought by an ally of Booker T. Washington who disliked her editorial stands and unconciliatory politics.Even though more than a thousand pages of Hopkins's works have been brought back into print, The Unruly Voice is the first book devoted exclusively to her writings and the significance she holds for readers today. Contributors explore the social, political, and historical conditions that informed her literary works.
Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins: Black Daughter of the Revolution (Gender and American Culture) by Lois Brown Book Summary:
Born into an educated free black family in Portland, Maine, Pauline Elizabeth Hopkins (1859-1930) was a pioneering playwright, journalist, novelist, feminist, and public intellectual, best known for her 1900 novel Contending Forces: A Romance of Negro Life North and South. In this critical biography, Lois Brown documents for the first time Hopkins's early family life and her ancestral connections to eighteenth-century New England, the African slave trade, and twentieth-century race activism in the North. Brown includes detailed descriptions of Hopkins's earliest known performances as a singer and actress; textual analysis of her major and minor literary works; information about her most influential mentors, colleagues, and professional affiliations; and details of her battles with Booker T. Washington, which ultimately led to her professional demise as a journalist.Richly grounded in archival sources, Brown's work offers a definitive study that clarifies a number of inconsistencies in earlier writing about Hopkins. Brown re-creates the life of a remarkable woman in the context of her times, revealing Hopkins as the descendant of a family comprising many distinguished individuals, an active participant and supporter of the arts, a woman of stature among professional peers and clubwomen, and a gracious and outspoken crusader for African American rights.
