Translating Myself and Others Audiobook

Translating Myself and Others

Author: Jhumpa Lahiri Narrator: Jhumpa Lahiri, Sneha Mathan Release Date: May 2022

Sneha Mathan narrates these luminous essays on translation and self-translation by award-winning writer and literary translator Jhumpa Lahiri With an introduction, afterword, and acknowledgements read by the author Translating Myself and Others is a collection of candid and disarmingly personal essays by Pulitzer Prize–winning author Jhumpa Lahiri, who reflects on her emerging identity as a translator as well as a writer in two languages. With subtlety and emotional immediacy, Lahiri draws on Ovid’s myth of Echo and Narcissus to explore the distinction between writing and translating, and provides a close reading of passages from Aristotle’s Poetics to talk more broadly about writing, desire, and freedom. She traces the theme of translation in Antonio Gramsci’s Prison Notebooks and takes up the question of Italo Calvino’s popularity as a translated author. Lahiri considers the unique challenge of translating her own work from Italian to English, the question “Why Italian?,” and the singular pleasures of translating contemporary and ancient writers. Featuring essays originally written in Italian and published in English for the first time, as well as essays written in English, Translating Myself and Others brings together Lahiri’s most lyrical and eloquently observed meditations on the translator’s art as a sublime act of both linguistic and personal metamorphosis.

I Used to Live Here Once: The Haunted Life of Jean Rhys Audiobook

I Used to Live Here Once: The Haunted Life of Jean Rhys

Author: Miranda Seymour Narrator: Diana Quick Release Date: May 2022

‘Brilliantly written, compulsively readable and insightful’ Pat Barker, author of The Silence of the Girls ‘A first-class life and a rollicking read … Close to a masterpiece’ Sunday Times An intimate, revealing and profoundly moving biography of Jean Rhys, acclaimed author of Wide Sargasso Sea. An obsessive and troubled genius, Jean Rhys is one of the most compelling and unnerving writers of the twentieth century. Memories of a conflicted Caribbean childhood haunt the four fictions that Rhys wrote during her extraordinary years as an exile in 1920s Paris and later in England. Rhys’s experiences of heartbreak, poverty, notoriety, breakdowns and even imprisonment all became grist for her writing, forming an iconic ‘Rhys woman’ whose personality – vulnerable, witty, watchful and angry – was often mistaken, and still is, for a self-portrait. Many details of Rhys’s life emerge from her memoir, Smile Please and the stories she wrote throughout her long and challenging career. But it’s a shock to discover that no biographer – until now – has researched the crucial seventeen years that Rhys spent living on the remote Caribbean island of Dominica; the island which haunted Rhys’s mind and her work for the rest of her life. Luminous and penetrating, Seymour’s biography reveals a proud and fiercely independent artist, one who experienced tragedy and extreme poverty, alcohol and drug dependency, romantic and sexual turmoil – and yet was never a victim. I Used to Live Here Once enables one of our most excitingly intuitive biographers to uncover the hidden truth about a fascinatingly elusive woman. The figure who emerges for Seymour is powerful, cultured, self-mocking, self-absorbed, unpredictable and often darkly funny. Persuasive, surprising and compassionate, this unforgettable biography brings Jean Rhys to life as never before.

Una mirada contemporània a la vida i l'obra de Mary Shelley i al seu monstre immortal. «Més enllà de les justes reivindicacions de la crítica feminista, més enllà dels fills legítims i bastards a la cultura popular, més enllà dels abusos biogràfics que s'han comès i es cometen a partir de la seva extraordinària vida, Mary Shelley és una de les grans escriptores de la història, [...] un dels més grans escriptors que han existit.» Als dos-cents anys de la publicació de Frankenstein, aquest riquíssim assaig literari de Ricard Ruiz Garzón presenta Mary Shelley i la seva criatura més famosa, reproduïda incessantment per la cultura popular contemporània en pel·lícules, llibres, sèries, etc. L'autor ha sabut cosir la vida, l'obra i les idees de Mary Shelley amb altres monstres literaris i amb els nostres monstres personals. Un autèntic llibre-Frankenstein. - Ricard Ruiz Garzón és un escriptor nascut a Barcelona el 1973.

Why I Was Late Audiobook

Why I Was Late

Author: Charlie Petch Narrator: Charlie Petch Release Date: May 2022

With kitchen-table candour and empathy, Charlie Petch's debut collection of poems offers witness to a decades-long trans/personal coming of age, finding heroes in unexpected places. Why I Was Late fuses text with performance, bringing a transmasculine wisdom, humour, and experience to bear upon tailgates, spaceships, and wrestling rings. Fierce, tender, convention re-inventing-Petch works hard. And whether it's as a film union lighting technician, a hospital bed allocator, a Toronto hot dog vendor, or a performer/player of the musical saw, the work is survival. Heroes are found in unexpected places, elevated by both large and small gestures of kindness, accountability and acceptance. No subject-grief, disability, kink, sexuality, gender politics, violence-is off limits. A poet so good at drag they had everyone convinced that they were a woman for the first forty years of their life, Petch has somehow brought the stage and its attendant thrills into the book. Better late than. And better.

Enfermaria nº6 Audiobook

Enfermaria nº6

Author: Alexandre Pires Vieira, Anton Tchekhov Narrator: Fernando Lauletta Release Date: May 2022

“A tranquilidade e a satisfação não estão fora do homem, mas dentro de si próprio.” 'Enfermaria nº 6” é o conto mais famoso de Tchekhov. A história é ambientada em um hospital provincial e explora o conflito filosófico entre Ivan Dmitritch, um paciente, e Andrey Ragin, médico-chefe de um hospital. Ivan denuncia a injustiça que vê em toda parte, enquanto o médico insiste em ignorar a injustiça e outros males; parcialmente como resultado desta forma de pensar, ele negligencia resolver as péssimas condições da ala psiquiátrica. Quando o próprio Dr. Ragin é lá internado, ele percebe a falácia de sua filosofia e, tarde demais, entende que o mal deve ser enfrentado. O conto pode ser visto como uma analogia ao comportamento humano que, em vez de lidar com os problemas, opta por vê-los à distância e ignorá-los.
