Description : Breaking Boundaries has as its primary intention just what the title implies: to reevaluate the paradigmatic and often divisive categories set forth by the literary establishment, whether those be cultural, linguistic, literary, academic, political, or sexual. We focus on an already extensive and rich body of literature written by Latina women, yet virtually unrecognized by institutions of power, although, fortunately, there are some exception.
Description : This book examines the controversial younger generation of poets who were `born into' the established socialist state of the GDR. It explores the ways in which these young poets have broken the literary and political boundaries which were imposed upon them, through an examination of their work, and assesses the durability of their radical project.

Description : Liminality has the potential to be a leading paradigm for understanding transformation in a globalizing world. As a fundamental human experience, liminality transmits cultural practices, codes, rituals, and meanings in situations that fall between defined structures and have uncertain outcomes. Based on case studies of some of the most important crises in history, society, and politics, this volume explores the methodological range and applicability of the concept to a variety of concrete social and political problems.

Description : we (meaning writers and creative types) often come up against a wall in our work. These walls are sometimes just plain old writer's block, but often those walls are boundaries - limitations - we have set on ourselves without even knowing. Maybe you are afraid to write about a subject that strikes close to your heart, or maybe you are afraid what your family will think if you write a particular scene or on a particular subject. Or perhaps you are just too tired, too frustrated, too whatever to sit your butt down and write something - anything. Boundaries.You need to break them. You need to tear down whatever wall - whatever boundary - and write something. Anything. Hence, this book. Read it front to back or back to front, or just open it up and start in media res. If you want to be a writer, you have to write. And that means writing some pretty crappy stuff before you find that perfect line, that perfect phrase, that perfect story.
Description : First published in 1998, this volume explores the period 1585-1649, identifying it as rich in innovative drama which challenged the boundaries between social, political and cultural activities of various kinds. Molly Smith examines ways in which texts by Renaissance authors reflect, question and influence their society’s ideological concerns. In the drama of Kyd, Shakespeare, Beaumont and Fletcher, Webster, Middleton, Massinger and Ford, she identifies the simultaneously serious and playful appropriation of popular cultural practices, an appropriation which is expertly reversed by authorities in the political drama of Charles I’s public trial and execution in 1649. This compelling interpretation of Renaissance drama will prove of value to students of literature and social history.
Description : In a comics follow-up to the Disney film, Elsa and Anna resolve problems in their beloved kingdom and make new friends along the way. Elsa and Anna are ready to get to the bottom of things when the peace of the kingdom of Arendelle is threatened. A wild animal loose in the village and destruction in the nearby Arendelle woods causes Queen Elsa to miss an important meeting with a neighboring monarch and she sends Princess Anna in her place. When Anna learns that this particular king will only speak to her sister, she begins to question her role in the kingdom. But when she learns that the king's daughter, the adventurous Princess Mari, is frustrated--with her father's overprotective ways--and would dearly love to find something purposeful to do, Anna is incredibly keen to help Mari to find a job that fits her perfectly! So as both princesses explore the variety of occupations that the kingdom has to offer, Elsa must address the problem in Arendelle's forest with Mari's father--who happens to be the unknowing source of the trouble! Elsa, Anna, and Mari will join together to resolve the confusion over the woodland and to find a purpose for Mari that she will love and her father will find fitting for his cherished daughter. The continuing story of Arendelle's sister rulers, Elsa and Anna, is chock full of snow flurries of fun and unfrosted heart with writer Joe Caramagna (DuckTales, Zootopia, Avengers Assemble) and art by Kawaii Creative Studio from the Frozen film graphic novel adaptation.
