In the Land of Silence Learning with my Master Book Excerpt:

In this autobiographical novel Mario Mantese depicts the fateful encounter with a spiritual master in the Himalaya. As he approaches this liberated universal master and is confronted with his unorthodox methods and teachings, the traveler plummets into a deep crisis, a destabilizing of everything he had thought and felt before. The exploits of these two men reveal just how forcefully the hardened, rigidly structured intellect is challenged when it encounters such a universal human being. The love, wisdom, and immense energy of the master, which the reader can directly experience from this book, open a pathway. Ultimately, this pathway leads to an end that is the liberation from all paths, a flowing back into never-ending Non-Being.

Poet Mitchell A. Kramer began writing his epic poem, "Her Couch of Silence," as a younglawyer and completed it forty years later. It is the centerpiece of his new poetry collection by the same name. The title poem explores the history of western civilization, experienced in one day. The woman of the couch spends a day in Philadelphia, envisioning life from tribal human sacrifice to the horrors of modern warfare, and from saints to monsters. TV Newscasters Besieged by pictures, words, faces peddling the reconstructed old or the vaguely new, we sit immobile, ensconced in leather watching a skewed or awful world snippets of murder, robbery tales of home invasion, tales of killings fill quiet evenings reality that is faked contests where illiterates demonstrate inadequate education.

Silence in the Land of Logos Book Excerpt:

In ancient Greece, the spoken word connoted power, whether in the free speech accorded to citizens or in the voice of the poet, whose song was thought to know no earthly bounds. But how did silence fit into the mental framework of a society that valued speech so highly? Here Silvia Montiglio provides the first comprehensive investigation into silence as a distinctive and meaningful phenomenon in archaic and classical Greece. Arguing that the notion of silence is not a universal given but is rather situated in a complex network of associations and values, Montiglio seeks to establish general principles for understanding silence through analyses of cultural practices, including religion, literature, and law. Unlike the silence of a Christian before an ineffable God, which signifies the uselessness of words, silence in Greek religion paradoxically expresses the power of logos--for example, during prayer and sacrifice, it serves as a shield against words that could offend the gods. Montiglio goes on to explore silence in the world of the epic hero, where words are equated with action and their absence signals paralysis or tension in power relationships. Her other examples include oratory, a practice in which citizens must balance their words with silence in very complex ways in order to show that they do not abuse their right to speak. Inquiries into lyric poetry, drama, medical writings, and historiography round out this unprecedented study, revealing silence as a force in its own right.
