This is the author's clever way of pulling us into the story. Her five historical novels include the bestselling Sally Hemings (1979), Valide (1986), Echo of Lions (1989), The President's Daughter (1994), and Hottentot Venus (2004). book The Diseased City – Images Of The Body In Expressionist And Futurist Poetry Pdf. I truly enjoyed the heck out of this book. I knew Devon was on some snake ish; she just had that vibe. The lovely village maiden thanks the dashing heroes for their service in a most delightful manner and the reader is immersed in a role as voyeur to the proceedings. He started reading them in 5th grade and reads at least 30 min a day so 1 book will last approximately a week at an average reading speed. If you buy the ebook (with or without the paperback), you can order the audiobook with WhisperSync for only $1. Since it is a "board" book it is lasting very well.

ry are centres of disease and disgust. They are industrial to the extent that they are equated with factories as pars pro toto. Life in the country-side or in the city could not be more different or the rift between the rich and the poor greater. R.H. Thomas comments that between 1890 and 1912 production in Germany was already industrial, whereas society was still far from industrial. The reason being, that in Germany industrialisation set in much later than in the UK and was compressed into just three decades.It is a time when the cities were ‘reborn’ and the images of the city changed dramatically, some of which I want to argue still exist in our common imaginary today.There are several fields of images that contribute to the representation of the city, they are: apocalyptic visions of technology and the decaying body, disease and sexuality, but also the Ich-Zerfall (ego-decay) can be seen as being triggered by the experience of the city as Simmel elaborates and when the Expressionist poets write about nature, it only really exists in relation to that city whose red smoke always lurks in the background, its smoke can be tasted everywhere.The city is the main theme of all these poems not just the backdrop and they address city issues directly. However, much has been written about the representation of the city in connection with technology, factories and alienating working conditions, which lend themselves to a Marxist analysis. This is not what interests me here, instead I want to approach the city on a sideway, using sociological theory of the body as put forward by Turner and Benthall and later explore the links between ‘body aesthetics’ and ‘machine aesthetics’ and see where they overlap.
