Download PDF War on the Human Book by Konstantinos Blatanis Full eBook and published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing. This book was released on 2017-05-11 with total page 330 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The essays in this collection explore the question of the human, both as a contested concept and as it relates to, and functions within, the wider global conjuncture. The authors explore the theoretical underpinnings of the term “human,” inviting the reader to reflect upon the contemporary human condition, to identify opportunities and threats in the changes ahead, and to determine what aspects of our species we should abandon or strive to maintain. The volume approaches these ideas from a myriad of perspectives, but the authors are united in their abstention from rejecting humanism outright or, indeed, fully endorsing posthumanism‘s teleological narrative of accelerated progress and perfectability. Instead, the authors argue that the term “human” itself is better understood as a concept perpetually undergoing revision, and is necessarily subject to scrutiny. The contributors here are thus concerned with investigating the following questions: What does it mean to be human, or to have a self? What is the current place or status of the human in the contemporary world? As technology is increasingly used to modify our bodies and minds, to what extent should we alter – and how can we improve – our very understanding of human nature? The authors contend that literature is the art form best placed to answer these questions. In its dynamism and discursiveness, literature has the capacity to both reflect dominant discourses and ideologies, as well as to generate and even anticipate social change; to critique and refine conventional ideas and existing cultural modes, and to envision new possibilities for the future. The human and its literary representation, in other words, are inherently intertwined.

Download PDF Not All Superheroes Wear Capes Book by Quentin Kenihan Full eBook and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2016-09-27 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Quentin Kenihan is living proof that superheroes don't need capes, just the right attitude. FOREWORD BY RAY MARTIN When he was a kid, Quentin Kenihan loved Superman. Ironic, really. Quentin didn't need kryptonite to reveal his weakness - born with a rare bone disorder, osteogenesis imperfecta, his bones broke all on their own. When Quentin was seven, Mike Willesee made a documentary about him. Australians fell in love with his wit, and never-say-die attitude. Over the years he grew up before our eyes. But there was a dark side to his life. The true story was never told ... until now. A story of abandonment, drug addiction, dark days and thoughts of suicide. Battling through it all, Quentin's resilience is inspiring. Quentin is now determined to live life the best he can. Just turned 41, he is a filmmaker, stand-up comedian, radio host, actor and film critic; he's hung out with Angelina, accidentally ripped Jennifer Lopez's dress, talked sex with Jean-Claude Van Damme, appeared in MAD MAX and interviewed Julia Gillard, all the while showing that living in a wheelchair doesn't mean staying still. This is an unforgettable, brutally honest, at times heartbreaking memoir. Quentin Kenihan is living proof that superheroes don't need capes, just the right attitude! 'Quentin is a hero of mine. Probably the toughest man I have ever met. Read this book and reconsider how hard you think your life is. It is a liberating experience to face life through his eyes.' - RUSSELL CROWE

Download PDF Memoirs of a Superhero in Waiting Book by Savannah Deville Full eBook and published by Wordclay. This book was released on 2009-05 with total page 183 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: MEMOIRS OF A SUPERHERO IN WAITING is the memoirs of Savannah Deville, a young woman whose coming of age story conveys the balance between choice and impulse, and the impossibility of finding clarity in either. Her perpetual, erratic motion makes her seem as if she could shoot off in any direction without warning. She is squarely placed in the midst of human suffering and comes of age through the rights of passage of heartache, indulgence and sometimes self-deprivation, all the while seeking her superhero strength to overcome all. Her very exciting journey takes her from love to lover to loathing to peace as she travels to the other side of the world (Taiwan at first) attempting to save herself. Her adventures and misadventures, strung together like a necklace displayed, are all connected with the thread of her heartstring worn like a badge of honor. She fleas to find inner peace. She questions the meaning of life and she travels, encountering strange hippies and urban survivalists along the way. She never despairs and so she clings to the hope that some day all may be saved and restored. Hence her steadfast belief that she is a superhero in waiting and that she will tap into her powers at any moment. Savannah is strong and intelligent, creative and lusty. The story of her life is adept at exploding expectations of a young woman who is a teacher and a reforming "good girl." She is a woman who is somewhat on the fringe of society in her experimental manner. She has left her daughter but not before as her journal is handed down to her to explore.

Download PDF The Superhero Multiverse Book by Lorna Piatti-Farnell Full eBook and published by Rowman & Littlefield. This book was released on 2021-11 with total page 323 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Superhero Multiverse focuses on the evolving meanings of the superhero icon in 21st-century film and popular media, with an emphasis on re-adapting, re-imagining, and re-making. With its focus on multimedia and transmedia transformations, The Superhero Multiverse pivots on two important points: firstly, it reflects on the core concerns of the superhero narrative—including the relationship between ‘superhero comics’ and ‘superhero films’, the comics roots of superhero media, matters of canon and hybridity, and issues of recycling and stereotyping in superhero films and media texts. Secondly, it considers how these intersecting textual and cultural preoccupations are intrinsic to the process of remaking and re-adapting superheroes, and brings attention to multiple ways of materializing these iconic figures in our contemporary context.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Tess McBray was dying. The Solstice Syndrome had no cure, and she resigned herself to an early grave. But just when she gave up on survival, all her symptoms mysteriously disappeared. All but one symptom, anyway. Something is wrong with Tess's hands. They absorb any material they touch, and her skin turns to wood, or steel, or concrete. It doesn't take this comic-book obsessed 21-year-old long to figure out what's going on: somehow, she's developed super powers. And she's not the only one; across the country, people are coming forward and sharing their gifts with the world. In her own city, where the police are battling a human trafficking operation, a masked vigilante called The Fox is saving lives and stopping criminals. Tess doesn't know where she fits into this new, super-powered world. But when people around her start disappearing, she can't just sit on the sidelines. Teaming up with The Fox to create the world's first superhero duo might be the only way to rid her city of evil and save the people she loves most.
