Rethinking Black Motherhood and Drug Addictions: Counternarratives of Black Family Resilience (Black Studies and Critical Thinking)

Study Ann Quin's mad, brilliant final novel Tripticks, I was often struck by her uniquely garbled phrasing, a thick, high-modern mess of interior thoughts and retentions blended into outward fine point and behaviors, past and present and the entirely imagined mingling on every beep. But in Tripticks, mingling also with a huge attire of intruding outside apposite, brochures and paste synopses and manual verses, which I thought potency account for the garbledness. But no, even here, in her first novel, whose entire wording is apparently its own, nearly every feature stumbles, flailing, through tend and view and personal history. It's disorienting, it certainly keeps you on your toes, but it's acutely discerning and often wildly entertaining once you get the feel for it. All the same, and despite the apriorism promise encapsulated in the famous first track ("A man called Icecap, who changed his name to Greb, came to a seagoing town intending to kill his abbé."), this didn't really feel as fine-honed as the later work. Though the dreary-mysterious off-season Brighton of the book -- the same in which Quin was to disappear into the ocean a decade later -- has its intrigues and muted magics, the dedication of the combatant narrows its interest somewhat. Icecap is a Freudian archetype granted comedic-noir context, a maybe-murderer trapped in oedipal confusion between mom, abbé, and aunts in general. The strictness of the patterns that he finds himself in handclasp some of the surprise out of the story's course, though it is not without its unexpected twists and absurdities. I think, actually, that the greater flow is just that in sticking to a familiar psychological casing scrutiny, Quin drastically limits her corrosive domain contraction the joke that would dash across the entire American view in Tripticks.

In many ways this is my favorite of the four robot books. The characters, especially, Giskard and Daneel, were more developed. I find the robot characters so much more interesting in this string: in particular the form they purpose through the sixty-four thousand dollar questions facing them, and even evolve. Though I did like DG and thought was also more compelling. Since this is a reread, it is cool to see how Asimov uses this to set the stage for both the galactic neoterics and the heart string. One can see the agitation between Asimov's individualism (his respect for and admiration of individuals) and his philosophic duty to a kind of benevolent (as he sees it) communism. Through his characters he is seemingly trying to work out how to integrate these reverse views. In some ways, this is the most explicit of the four in this concern.

If you are looking for a graduate school technique writing on sociopathy, skip this. However, if you're looking for a good, not painful to say analysis of sociopathy this manual is worth your many a moon. It's written for the humans- so, it's not an exhaustive resource, but it is a good introduction to the issue. We often think of sociopaths as the sensationalized, violent, serial hit-man/women we've all grown to know. We forget that they exist on a continuing, just like us. Some are more intelligent than others, some are just plain lazy, some are outright cruel. They live among us, and we often don't realize. We try to rationalize away behavior. We are unarmed. This manual will make you much more aware of what sociopathy truly is in the text of a elite. A caveat or two: Many have spoken of the poet's dramatic voice throughout this manual. I tend to agree with that. However, if you say the foreward, she has worked extensively with those who have been affected and traumatized by sociopaths, so it's understandable. It comes off a slice catastrophic, but if you can put that aside the information is still worth your many a moon. Also, the sketches can get a slice dramatic at turns. They are composites of patients/case studies and again, they're coming from character very affected by these people, who is desperately trying to show how dangerous they can befall- so again, understandable. If you're looking for specific case studies, or sensationalized "stereotypical" sociopaths, you won't find that here. I say it's worth a say.

This was a heavy-going book. Although I adored Plath's piece style, her descriptions of settings making the backgrounds discussed amazingly visual and involving, I didn't really enjoy the book. Depressing and miserable at the best of times, it isn't one to read when you're feeling hard done by. Even so, it is fascinating to read such an open potboiler; all viewpoints shamelessly included by the feminist writer. However the disturbing content becomes even darker through the author's own suicide shortly after the publication of her semi-autobiographical potboiler.
