"Operatic Subjects argues that opera is more than just a conservative and belated reflection of social, intellectual, and artistic trends; opera in its own way actively has contributed to the creation of the conceptual vocabulary of modernism. Particularly, this work maintains that opera has helped form our notions of what it means to be a self in twentieth-century western culture."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Mary Corse first emerged as part of the generation of 'Light and Space' artists working in southern California in the late 1960s. It was at this time that she first began making minimalist paintings using a radical technique mixing clear glass micro-beads mixed with pigment, which she has continued to develop over the past four decades. The tiny glass spheres act as a prism, refracting and reflecting light, depending on the position of the viewer and angle of light. At times the surface appears flat and even; by a slight shift in location, the formal geometry and painterly characteristics of the image shimmer into view with almost phosphorescent effect. The five new paintings, made in 2011 for 'Inside the White Cube', build upon this method, and have a glistening and ethereal quality that constantly vacillate as the viewer moves through the space.

"An elegant, eloquent journey abroad through verse and photo that makes you want to get your passport out immediately, dig up some cheap plane tickets online, and head for the airport. This is one creative endeavor that proves three heads are better than one." -Brandon Judell, New York Theatre Wire "This is no mere Jamesian Baedeker in verse form where clumsy and insensitive American sensibility collides with European culture and misses all the grace notes. Nor is it a cold Michelin guide book lacking heart and soul. These poems, filled with the traditional and non-traditional landmarks and landscapes of Paris and Italy, transform classical cold marble, ancient ruins, and rustic villas into resonant and shimmering snapshots of places and people infused with the yearnings, wit, and joys of the two poets. "Whether it is Brad's evocation of a past love haunting his footsteps as he revisits old landmarks or Larry's sense of serenity and balance against the torque of age, this poetic tour guides the reader through the hearts of these two poets and the souls of the countries they visit. "The personal and the historical merge in each image and moment of these clever, touching, sensual, and candid poems. What I am especially impressed by is the narrative ease of both poets, the momentum of their compact, eminently readable verse, carrying us forward into the present while retaining the sense of the historical past. Both poets create a correspondence between old world myth and modern attitude. The classical antiquity, the romantic costumes, the rich, mysterious landscapes are rendered transparent and we see and feel what the poets experience. The ancient trappings take on very human faces, sometimes ironic and erotic, sometimes poignant, always perceptive and honest. "What started out as a private trip of a lifetime for three people has been poetically memorialized into a public adventure of the spirit and senses." -Robert Karmon, playwright "Corse and Fairchild allow us to take that trip we have all dreamed of going on-the travel brochure photo into which we have each put ourselves. This poetic postcard is not just about the pretty pictures of the towers and cathedrals in the souvenir shops, but the internal photo that was snapped at the same time." -Duncan E. Teague, Senior member of ADODI Muse: A Gay Negro Ensemble. Join in this poetic exploration of life, love, and friendship that runs the gamut from melancholic to farcical-and everything in between!

Huset på Cap Corse
Author: Emma Piazza
Publisher: Bokförlaget Forum
När Teresa ärver ett hus på sin barndomsö Korsika återvänder hon dit för första gången på länge. Hon är konstnär och ser en chans till ett mer stabilt liv för barnet hon väntar. Men hon tas inte emot med öppna armar av släkten. Tvärtom hamnar hon mitt i en kokande gryta av konflikter, svek och familjehemligheter. Alla verkar känna Teresa, men själv känner hon ingen. I den kusliga stämningen framgår det att hon levt i en lögn och att ingen går att lita på. Likt ett antikt drama är släkthistorien fylld av förbjuden kärlek, arvstvister och blodig hämnd. Frågan är hur hon ska ta sig levande från ön. "Huset på Cap Corse" är ett förtätat och spännande relationsdrama i Hitchcocks anda. Om en ung kvinna som söker sanningen om sin egen historia.

Alpine Biodiversity in Europe

The United Nations Conference on the Environment and Development (UNCED), held in Rio de Janeiro in 1992, spawned a multitude of pro grammes aimed at assessing, managing and conserving the earth's biological diversity. One important issue addressed at the conference was the mountain environment. A specific feature of high mountains is the so-called alpine zone, i. e. the treeless regions at the uppermost reaches. Though covering only a very small proportion of the land surface, the alpine zone contains a rela tively large number of plants, animals, fungi and microbes which are specifi cally adapted to cold environments. This zone contributes fundamentally to the planet's biodiversity and provides many resources for mountain dwelling as well as lowland people. However, rapid and largely man-made changes are affecting mountain ecosystems, such as soil erosion, losses of habitat and genetic diversity, and climate change, all of which have to be addressed. As stated in the European Community Biodiversity Strategy, "the global scale of biodiversity reduction or losses and the interdependence of different species and ecosystems across national borders demands concerted international action". Managing biodiversity in a rational and sustainable way needs basic knowledge on its qualitative and quantitative aspects at local, regional and global scales. This is particularly true for mountains, which are distributed throughout the world and are indeed hot spots of biodiversity in absolute terms as well as relative to the surrounding lowlands.
