In this volume an inquiry into the nature of the creative process is attempted by paying close attention to the lives of various artists, poets, novelists and playwrights, and selected works of each in order to demonstrate an essential relationship between the two, and that it is most difficult to delineate the nuances of the creative act by treating them as separate entitites. Emphasis is placed upon the effect of early trauma, such as object loss and various forms of deprivation, as a powerful unconscious motivating factor and upon the dream and transitional object as facilitators of the creative effort.

The history of the legendary city, literally unearthed from the dust. After the volcano explosion, a stream of lava devastated the town and buried thousands of locals under the river of melted minerals. Centuries later, their last moment was recovered by filling the gaps in petrified lava. Thus, we see the previous inhabitants of Pompei in the final moments of their lives. This work collected the excavation materials, historical documents, and mentions to compile an objective picture of the ancient city's life and arts.

A sympathetic and illuminating portrait. Pearson was interested in the many contradictions in Conan Doyle – the conventional Scottish doctor who pursued the occult, was interested in spiritualism and fairies, invented Sherlock Holmes yet came to detest his creation. Pearson’s very readable portrait is by turns admiring, witty and moving.

Racial Mixture and Musical Mash-ups in the Life and Art of Bruno Mars

Racial Mixture and Musical Mash-ups in the Life and Art of Bruno Mars

This book argues that Bruno Mars is uniquely positioned to borrow from his heritage and experiential knowledge as well as his musical talent, performative expertise, and hybrid identities (culturally, ethnically, and racially) to remix music that can create "new music nostalgia." Melinda Mills attends to the ways that Mars is precariously positioned in relation to all of the racial and ethnic groups that constitute his known background and argues that this complexity serves him well in the contemporary moment. Engaging in the performative politics of blackness allows Mars to advocate for social justice by employing his artistic agency. Through his entertainment and the everyday practice of joy, Mars models a way of moving through the world that counters its harsh realities. Through his music and perfomance, Mars provides a way for a reconceptualization of race and a reimagining of the future.
