The first English collection of the late poetry and prose fragments of literary icon Charles Baudelaire "In Richard Sieburth's lucid and precise translation and commentary, Baudelaire has found at long last a proper English voice."--Alberto Manguel While not as well-known as his other works, Charles Baudelaire's late poems, drafts of poems, and prose fragments are texts indispensable to the history of modern poetics. This volume brings together Baudelaire's late fragmentary writings, aphoristic in form and radical in thought, into one edited collection for the first time. Substantial introductions to each work by Richard Sieburth combine the literary context with formal analysis and reception history to give readers a comprehensive picture of the genesis of these works and their subsequent fate. Baudelaire's turn toward fragmentary writing involved not only a conscious renunciation of his aesthetics of perfection and unity, but a desertion of the harmonies of the traditional lyric in favor of the disjunctions of prose. These are daring works, often painful to read in their misanthropy and unconventional beauty.

Ambitious and talented, Kate Gross worked at Number 10 Downing Street for two British prime ministers while only in her twenties. At thirty, she was CEO of a charity working with fragile democracies in Africa. She had married "the best-looking man I'd ever kissed" and given birth to twin boys. The future was bright. But, aged thirty-four, Kate was diagnosed with advanced colon cancer, and died on Christmas Day 2014, two years later. She began to write, as a gift to herself, a reminder that she could create even as her body tried to self-destruct. These are her reflections on the wonder to be found in the everyday, the importance of friendship and love, and how to fill your life with hope and joy even in the face of tragedy.

This unique collection of essays, published together for the first time, not only elucidates the complexity of ancient Greek thought, but also reveals Karl Popper's engagement with Presocratic philosophy and the enlightenment he experienced in his reading of Parmenides. As Karl Popper himself states himself in his introduction, he was inspired to write about Presocratic philosophy for two reasons - firstly to illustrate the thesis that all history is the history of problem situations and secondly, to show the greatness of the early Greek philosophers, who gave Europe its philosophy, its science and its humanism.

This dissertation presents four methodological case studies that elaborate on the results of two field survey projects (the Astura and Nettuno surveys) that were carried out by the Groningen Institute of Archaeology (GIA). The case studies aim at investigating biasing factors that limit the analytical and comparative value of data from archaeological survey in general using these two projects as a suitable testing ground. Both surveys, carried out between 2003 and 2005, fell within the ambit of the Pontine Region Project (PRP), a long-term research program aimed at the diachronic archaeological investigation of the various landscape units forming this region. They covered two contiguous areas, situated on the Tyrrhenian seaboard, approximately 60 kilometres south of Rome. The study area comprises the communal area of the modern town of Nettuno, as well as the lower valleys of the Astura and Moscarello rivers (see fig. 0.1).2 As such it incorporates parts of the hinterland of the ancient towns of Antium and Satricum. In chronological terms this dissertation considers a time-span of 1300 years, from the 6th century BC to the 7th century AD.

TEXT 10 opens with six essays that treat a variety of texts from a predominantly theoretical focus. Among them are J.C.C. Mays and Robert Spoo's discussion of Hans Walter Gabler's controversial edition of Ulysses; Marta L. Werner's meditations on Emily Dickinson's late fragments; and Nick Frankel's consideration of Oscar Wilde's Salome "as a Work of Contradiction." Also featured are a cluster of essays on copyright and the status of texts--crucial questions for all textual scholars--and nine more specialized studies on topics ranging from "Annotating Piers Plowman" to Virginia Woolf's revisions of Between the Acts, with the essays arranged in chronological order of subject. The review section opens with three review essays on major multi-volume editions (the Cornell Yeats, the works of Washington Irving, and the Howells edition) that situate these editions within current debates on author, text, and cultural context. Twelve reviews of individual studies or editions complete the volume. W. Speed Hill is Professor of English, Lehman College and The Graduate Center, CUNY. Edward M. Burns is Professor of English, William Paterson College. Peter L. Shillingsburg is Professor of English, University of North Texas

The essays collected in this volume focus on the role of formalist aspects in mathematical theorizing and practice, examining issues such as infinity, finiteness, and proof procedures, as well as central historical figures in the field, including Frege, Russell, Hilbert and Wittgenstein. Using modern logico-philosophical tools and systematic conceptual and logical analyses, the volume provides a thorough, up-to-date account of the subject.

Advances in Gene Technology: Molecular Genetics of Plants and Animals contains the proceedings of the Miami Winter Symposium held in January 1983 in Miami, Florida. The papers explore advances in the molecular genetics of plants and animals and cover a wide range of topics such as genetic manipulation of plants; plant cell cultures, regeneration, and somatic cell fusion; and nitrogen fixation. Practical applications of gene technology with plants are also discussed. Comprised of 84 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of how plants manufacture from carbon dioxide and water all of their substances, paying particular attention to the path of carbon in photosynthesis. The organization of the plant genome is then considered, along with techniques for cell culture, regeneration, and somatic cell fusion; vector systems; and nitrogen fixation. Some chapters focus on gene transfer by protoplast fusion; somatic cell genetic systems in corn; regulation of transcription of the nitrogen fixation operons; and leghemoglobin and nodulin genes of soybean. The final section is devoted to practical applications of gene technology to plants and to technology frontiers in animal biology, in particular embryonic development and vaccines and diagnostic methods for animal diseases. This book should be of value to molecular geneticists.

With a new foreword by Scott Austin 'I hope that these essays may illustrate the thesis that all history is or should be the history of problem situations, and that in following this principle we may further our understanding of the Presocratics and other thinkers of the past. The essays also try to show the greatness of the early Greek philosophers, who gave Europe its philosophy, its science, and its humanism.' - Karl Popper, from the preface The World of Parmenides is a brilliant exploration of the complexity of ancient Greek thought and science by one of the twentieth century’s leading philosophers. It reveals the great importance of Presocratic philosophy to Popper’s thought as a whole and shows the profound enlightenment he experienced reading not only Parmenides but the wider world of Greek science and philosophy including Xenophanes and Heraclitus. Edited by Arne F. Petersen, Associate Professor in the Faculty of Humanities, University of Copenhagen.
