A New Translation From The French By Marion Wiesel Night is Elie Wiesel's masterpiece, a candid, horrific, and deeply poignant autobiographical account of his survival as a teenager in the Nazi death camps. This new translation by Marion Wiesel, Elie's wife and frequent translator, presents this seminal memoir in the language and spirit truest to the author's original intent. And in a substantive new preface, Elie reflects on the enduring importance of Night and his lifelong, passionate dedication to ensuring that the world never forgets man's capacity for inhumanity to man. Night offers much more than a litany of the daily terrors, everyday perversions, and rampant sadism at Auschwitz and Buchenwald; it also eloquently addresses many of the philosophical as well as personal questions implicit in any serious consideration of what the Holocaust was, what it meant, and what its legacy is and will be.

Named for the twelfth night after Christmas, the end of the Christmas season, Twelfth Night plays with love and power. The Countess Olivia, a woman with her own household, attracts Duke (or Count) Orsino. Two other would-be suitors are her pretentious steward, Malvolio, and Sir Andrew Aguecheek. Onto this scene arrive the twins Viola and Sebastian; caught in a shipwreck, each thinks the other has drowned. Viola disguises herself as a male page and enters Orsino's service. Orsino sends her as his envoy to Olivia—only to have Olivia fall in love with the messenger. The play complicates, then wonderfully untangles, these relationships.

“We have given over the nighttime to the enemy,” states Candi MacAlpine, author and intercessory prayer leader. “But I believe there are some roots we need to eradicate, and they are hidden in the night,” she adds, as she equips Christians to take an aggressive stance in spiritual warfare in her release, Take Back the Night.In Take Back the Night, MacAlpine gives readers insight into the mechanics of spiritual warfare and a blueprint for successful intercessory prayer-particularly in the midnight hour as she asserts when warfare is the most intense.She writes, “God created the night according to Genesis 1…for far to long we [Christians] have relegated the night to the demonic realm and in all reality, a level of fear has kept the church of Jesus Christ from taking back this territory.”Accompanied with scriptural passages and numerous testimonies, Take Back the Night includes a list of names of Jesus in Scripture.Also covered in Take Back the Night is the following:Can a nonbeliever experience spiritually significant dreams?Dream interpretationPrayer warfare strategiesTake Back the Night is an invaluable resource for anyone interested in dreams, visions, and intercessory prayer and will help readers understand the significance to their Christian walk.

Genre: Literary Criticism
This book argues that the source of Gothic terror is anxiety about the boundaries of the self: a double fear of separateness and unity that has had a special significance for women writers and readers. Exploring the psychological, religious, and epistemological context of this anxiety, DeLamotte argues that the Gothic vision focuses simultaneously on the private demons of the psyche and the social realities that helped to shape them. Her analysis includes works of English and American authors, among them Henry James, Mary Shelley, Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Emily Bront?, Charlotte Bront?, and a number of often neglected popular women Gothicists.
Italo Calvino imagines a novel capable of endless mutations in this intricately crafted story about writing and readers. If on a Winter's Night a Traveler turns out to be not one novel but ten, each with a different plot, style, ambience, and author, and each interrupted at a moment of suspense. Together they form a labyrinth of literatures, known and unknown, alive and extinct, through which two readers, a male and a female, pursue both the story lines that intrigue them and one another.
