BOOK EXCERPT:

An in-depth look at the history, herbal uses, and spiritual aspects of the sacred trees in the ancient Celtic Ogham Tree Alphabet • Details the 20 trees of the ogham alphabet and their therapeutic and magical virtues • Examines the Forest Druid practices associated with each tree as well as the traditional uses in Native American medicine • Describes the Celtic Fire Festivals and how each tree is featured in these holy days • By the author of A Druid’s Herbal for the Sacred Earth Year The Druids used the ancient Ogham Tree Alphabet to work magic and honor the dead, surrounding each letter with medicinal and spiritual lore. Poets and bards created a secret sign language to describe the letters, each of which is named for a tree or a plant. For centuries this language was transmitted only orally in order to protect its secrets. Combining her extensive herbal knowledge and keen poetic insight, Ellen Evert Hopman delves deeply into the historic allusions and associations of each of the 20 letters of the Ogham Tree Alphabet. She also examines Native American healing methods for possible clues to the way ancient Europeans may have used these trees as healing agents. Druidic spiritual practices, herbal healing remedies, and plant lore are included for each tree in the alphabet as well as how each is used in traditional rituals such as the Celtic Fire Festivals and other celebrations. Hopman also includes a pronunciation guide for the oghams and information on the divinatory meanings associated with each tree.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Psychoanalytic Reflections on Politics: Fatherlands in mothers’ hands is a playful exploration of how people’s desires, fantasies, and emotions shape political events and social phenomena. It highlights the mythical sources of today’s political projects, the power of political imagination, and the function of symbolism in political thought. Eszter Salgó argues that the driving force for the formation of political communities is fantasy – ‘illusions’ in a Winnicottian sense, ‘phantasies’ in a Lacanian sense, ‘phantoms’ as described by Nicolas Abraham and Maria Torok, and ‘dreams’ as interpreted by Sándor Ferenczi. She introduces the metaphor of the ‘fantastic family’ as a symbolic representation of political communities, both to reflect on people’s deeply felt desire to find in public life the resolution, love, and wholeness of early childhood, and to unveil the political elite’s readiness to don the mask of the ‘ideal parent’. The book is divided into two parts. The first part of the book explores the theories of Donald Winnicott and Jacques Lacan: the matrimony on the stage of politics between the ‘good-enough mother’ and the Symbolic Father which inaugurates the story of democracy’s ‘fantastic family’. The second part presents the ‘fantastic families’ of selected countries such as Hungary, Italy, and the world community to explain the proliferation of cosmogony projects, and to document the failure of the political elites to offer a satisfactory performance of their maternal and paternal functions. Psychoanalytic Reflections on Politics: Fatherlands in mothers’ hands presents a new way of considering the art of politics, based on the understanding that people perceive reality through imagination and unconscious fantasy. It will be of interest to psychoanalysts, and academics from across the disciplines of politics, psychology, anthropology, sociology, philosophy, literature, and art.

BOOK EXCERPT:

This study presents a new approach to the canon of nineteenth-century English fiction by defining the ideological framework within which some of the most controversial novelists of the Victorian period inscribed their imaginative responses to a changing society and its social unrest. The book posits a radical re-visioning of such authors as Dickens, Collins, Gaskell, Gissing, and Hardy by adopting the notion of disharmony as a common thematic thread of their fictional production. While the establishment invoked moral order and social harmony, their novels and short stories configured a world beset by conflicting drives and ethical aporias. What is represented in novels like A Tale of Two Cities, The Whirlpool, and Jude the Obscure is not only a society often on the verge of collapse, but also exemplary stories in which identities are disintegrated and individual destinies are caught up in the mechanism of deceptive fantasizing leading to psychological destructiveness and silence. In the attempt to avoid any form of hermeneutical simplification of the age and its cultural debates, the rich and stimulating introduction of Victorian Disharmonies aims at portraying the social and cultural contexts as well as the major topics that attracted artistic and literary imagination---urbanization and the phenomenon of the crowd, pollution and the changing countryside, Deus Absconditus and religious doubt, medievalism and the dream of a new order. Using a critical methodology combining semiotic investigation with profound awareness of the socio-behavioral codes and historical processes of the Victorian period, chapter 1 focuses on Dickens's A Tale of Two Cities that is interpreted as a novel dramatizing a "private" and Christian version of the French revolution. Subsequent chapters, one devoted to Wilkie Collins's The Dead Secret and two to Elizabeth Gaskell's shorter fiction, analyze certain ontological and ethical tensions underlying their texts that oscillate between realistic techniques and a pursuit of Gothic sensationalism. Chapters 5 and 6, on Gissing's The Whirlpool and Hardy's Jude the Obscure, respectively, are more directly concerned with a challenging and truthful representation of protagonists confronting change and the late-Victorian contrast between old institutions and new axiological horizons This thought-provoking book delineates how fiction developed from Dickens's intensely Christological worldview to Gissing's self-deceptive and pessimistic humanism, from Collins's and Gaskell's patholo-gized womanhood to Hardy's intellectual wasteland where there is no room for redemption and moral rebirth. Victorian Disharmonies provides a fresh account of crucial fictional texts of the age, while its lively presentation of the literary scene will prove stimulating to readers interested in the history of Victorianism as a paradigmatic phenomenon of British culture.
