Calvino s Combinational Creativity Book Excerpt:

Calvino’s Combinational Creativity examines the various ways combinatory processes influence the work of the Italian author Italo Calvino. Comprising chapters by six literary scholars, the volume asserts that the Ligurian writer’s creativity often stems from his contemplation of literature even as it investigates the intersection of his work with poets, writers, and literary movements. Each chapter explores a different aspect of Calvino’s creativity. Natalie Berkman examines Calvino as a reader of Ariosto and provides an analysis of mathematical combinations inspired by Vladmir Propp in Il castello dei destini incrociati. Discussing the poetic and scientific influence of the Argentine writer Julio Cortázar on Calvino, Sara Ceroni then presents Palomar as a modernist work of epiphanies. This is followed by two chapters investigating different influences on Cosmicomics: Elio Baldi demonstrates how Calvino’s collection of stories appropriates various conventions of the science fiction genre, while Elizabeth Scheiber provides a close reading of two tales to show how Calvino uses science as a metaphor to comment on the poetics of Italian authors Gadda, D’Annunzio, Ungaretti, and Montale. Cecilia Benaglia then proposes Calvino as a reader of Gadda, who served not only as an aesthetic influence, but also as an epistemological one. Finally, juxtaposing Calvino with his contemporary, Umberto Eco, Sebastiano Bazzichetto examines the two authors’ use of figures of speech as ways of constructing labyrinths. Calvino’s Combinational Creativity takes Calvino studies in new directions as it rethinks how the author’s work can be classified, and delves into the sources of his inspiration.

The Selected Letters of Tennessee Williams Book Excerpt:

"While I have, over the years, read many collections of letters by famous writers, few have moved me as much as those by Tennessee Williams. There is no artifice to these letters, no calculation, no awareness of posterity looking over the shoulder. What there is, instead, is a revelation of the author's creative process, an unedited outpouring of Williams' mind and heart and--perhaps most wonderfully!--the sound of his voice, for he wrote these letters as he spoke, and his inflections, his intonations, are there in full. You cannot read these letters without hearing Tennessee speaking them."--Edward Albee Volume I of "The Selected Letters of Tennessee Williams" ends with the surprise Broadway triumph of "The Glass Menagerie" in 1945. Volume II extends the correspondence from 1945 to 1957, a time of intense creativity for Williams, which saw the production of six major plays and several major film projects, especially the notorious "Baby Doll," which brought Williams and his main collaborator Elia Kazan into conflict with powerful agencies of censorship, revealing Williams' studied resistance to the forces of conformity. Letters written to Kazan, Carson McCullers, Gore Vidal, publisher James Laughlin, and Audrey Wood, Williams' resourceful agent, continue earlier lines of correspondence and introduce new celebrity figures. His Broadway and Hollywood successes vie with a string of personal losses and a deepening depression, making this period an emotional and artistic roller coaster. Through it all, his wit, aplomb, mischievousness, and wickedly keen eye for human idiosyncrasies make it clear why Gore Vidal, upon reading the letters, declared Williams "the most distinctive, humorous, American voice since Mark Twain."

Communicating Creativity Book Excerpt:

This book provides an extensive and original analysis of the way that written and spoken communication facilitates creative practice in the university art and design studio. Challenging the established view of creativity as a personal attribute which can be objectively measured, the author demonstrates instead that creativity and creative practice are constructed through a complex array of intersecting discourses, each shaped by wider socio-historical contexts, beliefs and values. The author draws upon a range of methods and resources to capture this dynamic complexity from corpus linguistics to ethnography and multimodal analysis. This innovative volume will appeal to students and scholars of discourse analysis, creativity, and applied linguistics. It will also appeal to art and design educators.

Master Minds Creativity in Picasso s Husain s Paintings Part 4 Book Excerpt:

Master Minds: Creativity in Picasso’s & Husain’s Paintings The book, “Master Minds: Creativity in Picasso’s and Husain’s Paintings”, is a projection of master minds in the field of art. It reveals about the creative works of art that are not just show pieces to adorn rich homes, museums and art galleries but to bring awareness about human attitude and cultural heritage. The projection of these works of art could lead to international integration and establish an amicable relationship between people of all communities and further form a peaceful global human society. This book Part 1 to Part 5 also serves the purpose of academic study for art scholars and art researchers all over the world In the entire book, “Master Minds: Creativity in Picasso’s and Husain’s Paintings,” light has been thrown on Picasso’s and Husain’s life and paintings. There is an analytical study of their works of art. The significant aspects dealt with in their paintings are creativity viewed through linear quality, forms, colors, pictorial composition, subject matter, styles, mediums, techniques, similarities and differences in their works of art. I consider myself to be fortunate to avail the opportunity to journey through a significant part of the life and works of these two great artists. Their contribution to the world of art is exemplary for many future generations. Picasso and Husain have proved that the aesthetic artistic trend of thought has no barriers and boundaries. The mind of an artist can reach any part of the universe and create wonders in the form of an art. Picasso’s and Husain’s immortalized paintings mesmerize the observer when their creative activity springs out in their paintings which speak in a silent language of forms and colors. An exposure to visual art in any form has proved to be a form of communication. Our global human society is divided by languages, customs, religions, economic developments and geographical locations, but the visual language in the form of paintings of artists all over the world have united the global society by their creative activity. When an artist’s aesthetic sense is highly developed and his ability to grasp and display is superb he ultimately becomes a pioneer of a unique technique or style. Picasso’s cubism and Husain’s allegorical series of paintings in Husainean style are the products of the vigorous experiments with different mediums and techniques. It has been noticed that their works have a glimpse of the existing styles and techniques mingled with an antiquarian approach where the result is absolutely unique and creative. Their works of art are deemed to immortalize their names as the ever shining prominent stars in the sky of the world of art. There are total 226 illustrations in Part 1 to Part 5 of the ebooks that include a unique analytical study of the paintings and the sketches of the artists, Pablo Picasso and Maqbool Fida Husain.
