Marian Crane has been in love with Rolph McKenzie since almost forever, but he sees her as a butterfly who flits from man to man, from job to job, and even country to country, never lighting anywhere for long. It´s not until he´s shamed into giving her a job in his boat-brokerage/marina that he begins to recognize her as the savvy, desirable woman she has grown up to be. And when he does realize how appealing she is, he can´t believe she could possibly be interested in him - after all, he´s the brother who played second string to Max McKenzie, incomparable girl-magnet until he married Jeannie Leslie. Marian is determined to change Rolph´s mind and convince him she´s no longer the kid next door who followed him around as a child, and nor is she the flibbertigibbet he sees when he looks at her today. It takes all her seductive powers, and then some, before she convinces him to up-anchor and sail into the future with her, aboard his boat, Sunrise Seven. 1. Language: English.

My research studies the anthropology of Dr William Crocker and his recording enterprise, the Festival of Masks of the Canela groups of Maranhão state, Brazil. Crocker began field research with the Canela in 1957 and continued to do so intermittently until 2011. Photography and film played a major part in his observation and his use of these media proved extremely innovative in ethnographic study. Until now, these recordings have been largely unexamined and academically undervalued. This work is an analysis of his visual enterprise. Later chapters use the visual materials to analyse the ethnographic content of the Festival of Masks ceremony. This book, firstly follows Crocker´s attention on the Festival, then turns to how the Festival achieves the task of helping to construct personal ´selves´ as part of a nexus of social relations. I argue that the ceremony presents an important way by which the Canela conceptualise the nature of being a human: the central importance of sharing in the formation of Canela personhood. The Festival of Masks can be seen as a model for how to live.
As a man is, so he sees. These words of mystical poet and artist William Blake are just as relevant now as they were when they were written in 1802 - perhaps more so. Throughout his life, Blake undertook a voyage beyond rationality and materialism to an interior, visionary realm where ´´all things appear as they are - infinite.´´ Yet all human beings, he believed, are capable of opening their eyes to a fuller experience of life. In this discussion, master poet and word-weaver Robert Bly opens windows into Blake´s mythic world, sharing with us some of Blake´s poetry as well as some of his own compositions and insights, inviting us all to awaken to vision, our own creative energies, and the Divine Imagination. Poet, translator, and teacher, Bly is the author of many books including Light Around the Body (Harper & Row 1967), Loving a Woman In Two Worlds (Dial 1985), Man In the Black Coat Turns (Harper & Row 1982), The Winged Energy of Delight: Selected Translations (Harper Perenniel 2005), My Sentence Was a Thousand Years of Joy: Poems (Harper Perennial 2006). He is also author of Iron John (Addison-Wesley 1990) and The Sibling Society (Addison-Wesley 1996). Hosted by Michael Toms and Marsha Newman. Topics discussed in this dialogue are: four steps toward mystical vision, the historically evolving view of the human psyche and its implications, the dynamics of revolutionary energy in the French Revolution and the American ´60s, Blake´s four zoas - or living beings, within humans and culture, that represent four ways of moving into creative consciousness, how Blake re-introduced the feminine into the male Christian model, the power of attachment to beauty and art, and how to deepen your own creativity. 1.

The Merchant of Venice is a 16th-century play by William Shakespeare in which a merchant in Venice must default on a large loan provided by a Jewish moneylender. It is believed to have been written between 1596 and 1599. Though classified as a comedy in the First Folio and sharing certain aspects with Shakespeare´s other romantic comedies, the play is most remembered for its dramatic scenes, and it is best known for Shylock and the famous ´´Hath not a Jew eyes?´´ speech on humanity. Also notable is Portia´s speech about ´´the quality of mercy´´. Critic Harold Bloom listed it among Shakespeare´s great comedies. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Theis.
