Author: Dennis Porter
Publisher: Princeton University Press
Focusing on travel journals by writers, navigators, philosophers, scientists, and anthropologists--from the eighteenth-century grand tour to the modern period--Dennis Porter explores how male authors at different historical moments conceptualized and represented the lands they encountered. Efforts to portray unfamiliar peoples and cultures are shown to give rise to rich and complex works, in which individual psychic investments frequently subvert an inherited cultural discourse. In exploring the various uses and pleasures of travel, Porter interprets it as a transgressive activity animated by desire and haunted by different forms of guilt. Broad in its historical scope and interdisciplinary in its approach, the book draws on literary theory, psychoanalysis, gender criticism, and the social history of ideas. Texts analyzed include works by Boswell, Diderot, Bougainville, Cook, Stendhal, Darwin, Flaubert, Freud, D. H. Lawrence, T. E. Lawrence, Gide, Lvi-Strauss, Barthes, and V. S. Naipaul. Originally published in 1990. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

The culmination of Brad Steiger’s 50 years of paranormal research, this book is a bold telling of true ghost stories and firstperson encounters with the supernatural. Arranged topically, it covers every sort of ghost and haunting: poltergeists, shadow beings, and phantoms alongside haunted apartments, hotels, and trains. From ghosts that still haunt Ohio’s State Reformatory, otherwise known as Shawshank, to Abe Lincoln’s regular consultation with mediums, this compendium delves into the true scary stories from both historical documents and personal accounts. In its 30 chapters, spirits represented include the good (“Ghosts that Saved Lives”), the bad (“Invisible Home Wreckers”), and the ugly (“Demonic Spirits That Whisper Commands to Kill”). The book goes on to unearth the ghastly goingson and macabre manifestations at haunted places such as museums, churches, graveyards, restaurants, and sacred sites while also instructing how to perform a cleansing ritual to rid a home of unwanted spectral visitors. This second edition is updated to include new stories and compelling evidence of both the existence of ghosts and proof of hauntings that will entertain, induce chills, and make the doubtful believe.
No one who reads this book can ever again consider Lawrence's position "normative" or "celebratory" but will find it full of hate and death--despite his achievements--in his best work.
Author: David Holbrook
Publisher: Bucknell University Press
Category: Literary Criticism
David Holbrook has spent many years teaching D. H. Lawrence's works to students, while Lawrence has been a primary influence in Holbrook's novels and poetry. By degrees, however, he came to be suspicious of Lawrence's attempts to "teach us to be men and women," especially in the field of sex. So, Holbrook set out on a detailed analysis of Lawrence's whole oeuvre. What he found was startling. From the beginning he found Lawrence haunted by a deep fear of woman, and by a hostility toward her, even in The White Peacock. In the great tragic novel Sons and Lovers, there are many clues to Lawrence's intense relationship with his mother. This predicament is illuminated by recent studies of gender from a psychoanalytic point of view. Holbrook finds that Lawrence's mother, in the absence of a real love relationship, and in her grief for her dead child, made Lawrence into her "idolised phallus." This phallus stalks through the short stories and especially through the versions of Lady Chatterly's Lover. This element is to be found in the longer novels, in which Lawrence develops a personal myth in which his alter ego is depicted as the "man from the Infinite," who has a special role: to raise woman from the dead--in fact, to resurrect the dead mother. The reasons for this need are expressed with amazing clarity in Kangaroo, in which the Lawrence-like hero is haunted by a menacing mother in his dreams--the threat being that unless he gives her a meaningful life, she will blight his. Lawrence's male characters are nearly all tormented by this kind of ghost, and his solution is to seek to exercise control over women. She may be put to death, as in The Fox and The Woman Who Rode Away. She may be sodomized and taken in contemptuous anger, as in Lady Chatterly's Lover, and is depicted as enjoying this. The enthusiasm for the sodomizing of woman is quite clearly there in The Rainbow, Women in Love, and Mr. Noon. Some critics have spoken of this as a "holy communion," but Holbrook sees it as a denial of woman, an avoidance of the matrix where the ghost of the dead mother lurks. In the end, in The Plumed Serpent, an intelligent American woman submits herself to the fascistic domination of two murderers who are running a new religious-political campaign, while forfeiting even her capacity for orgasm. Everything in Lawrence's work leads to this false solution. Yet such critics as F. R. Leavis commend Lawrence for his concepts of "manhood"--and even endorse such stories as The Virgin and the Gypsy, in which a duplicitous traveler seduces a young girl in vengeance on the middle class. Yet the politics behind this kind of propaganda are those of Otto Gross, the insane German sex revolutionary who was a sometime lover of Lawrence's wife, Frieda, and her sister. Mr. Noon reveals the confusion in Lawrence between the novelist squarely in the Anglo-Saxon tradition and the husband of Frieda. No one who reads this book can ever again consider Lawrence's position "normative" or "celebratory" but will find it full of hate and death--despite his achievements--in his best work.

When writers go on journeys it is as often to explore the terra incognita of their own selves as to establish the identities of strange lands; in the case of many English novelists between the great wars it was certainly true, as Douglas Veitch remarks in the study I am introducing, that their work, "even as it essayed the exotic, cast an eye homeward and inward", and that they "roamed the world, seeking surcease from a prevailing malaise which doubted the values of Western Civilization." ... Mr. Veitch has taken this vital element in the three novels--The Plumed Serpent, The Power and the Glory and Under The Volcano--and has used it not merely to examine these works themselves but also to sketch out the ambivalent role which landscape plays in all fiction, as omnipresent background but also as a rich source of symbols and images reflecting the human drama which a book develops. He has, as he more than once makes clear, done more than read all the relevant literature; he has himself travelled to Mexico in order to see and experience the extraordinary terrain, and, as I can vouch on the basis of my own knowledge of that infinitely attractive and repellent country, he used his senses well while he was there. --from the Introduction by George Woodcock
