Woman on Fire

Author: Amy Jo Goddard
Publisher: Avery
ISBN: 0399573577
Release Date: 2016-09-13

Based on her sought-after sexuality workshops, the coauthor of Lesbian Sex Secrets for Men shows women how to master the nine elements of sexual empowerment to reclaim their desire and live the sexually fulfilling lives they want. In a culture that defines achievement in terms of the workplace and the family, and that judges women's worth by superficial standards of beauty, sexuality is often overlooked as an essential piece of women's power. Many women realize they want more sexually but don't know how to get it. Based on her sought-after workshops for women, Amy Jo Goddard lays out her holistic, inside-out approach to sexual empowerment--one that examines sexuality not only in terms of what happens in the bedroom but through a lens of personal power and the erotic energy that is at our core. In Woman on Fire, she reveals how to elevate our sexual intelligence by mastering the nine Elements of a Sexually Empowered Life. Including stories from the thousands of women she has worked with, Goddard shares how to get (back) in touch with desire, explore vulnerability, and push the boundaries of what we think is acceptable. We will have not just better sex, but also more pleasure throughout life, more power in our work, and more deeply connected relationships. And we will discover what Goddard always reminds the women she works with: The more whole we are as sexual beings, the more fulfilled we are as human beings. From the Hardcover edition.

"Woman on Fire: Mapping the Four Elements of Gaspara Stampa's Rime" follows Anassilla's elemental journey with water, earth, air and fire as she transforms her lyrical persona through her relation to each. Chapter 1, aquatic poet, starts with Anassilla's tears and maps a voyage of self identification. This leads to an understanding of her place in the waters around her. Anassilla, the female river body, searches for her poetic joy. On the waves of this element, she lands at terrestrial shores. Chapter 2, terrestrial poet, maps Anassilla's use of earthly terms as they moved in the direction of their climax, her Count Collaltino. Beginning with the universal term, "terra," and ending with the specific term "colle," this protagonist sees her beloved's richness, but is also weighed down by it. At times she identifies herself with earth, and then leaves it to reach aerial heights. Chapter 3, aerial poet, traces the movement of Anassilla's sighs, which resonate the universe's materializations of exhalation and inhalation. These carry her to the igneous center of her poetic universe. Chapter 4, igneous poet, focuses on fire itself, the true source of Anassilla's passion. Her igneous joy is her own existence as the lyrical expression of love and desire. Stampa infuses her protagonist Anassilla with the fire of a faithful, burning passion. She tells us, in fact, that her noble flame merits the admiration it has earned. She must be celebrated in life, eternally, and thereafter: Si chiara fiamma merta i pregi suoi; in questa parte io deggio esser cantata fin ch'io sia viva, eternamente, e poi (Stampa, 115, 12-14). I offer this work as a contribution to the field of Italian Literature that will encourage further scholarly discussion of Gaspara Stampa's Rime and that will give her flame, her poetry, the particular attention it deserves. It is an invitation to study the rich thematic content of Stampa's Canzoniere in contrast to her predecessors, within the context of her own poetic framework, and in relation to her contemporary female poets.

Release Date: 2017-04-06
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

The inspiring true story of Josephine Reynolds, Britain's first full-time female firefighter. When Josephine Reynolds signed up with the Norfolk Fire Service in July 1982 at just seventeen years old, there was no such thing as a firefighter - only fire men. Set against the slate-grey backdrop of early 1980s Britain, Fire Woman is the story of how a young woman brought up in rural Wales coped in the testosterone-fuelled world of the fire brigade, where even today 96 per cent of all staff are male. In a life packed with incident - where lethal forest fires, escaped zoo animals and unexploded bombs formed a background to the everyday toll of death and disaster - Josephine experienced both triumph and heartbreaking personal tragedy. Fire Woman also provides a unique insight into the camaraderie that comes with risking your life on a daily basis and stands as the inspiring true story of an extraordinary young woman who took on a man's world and won, becoming Britain's first full-time firefighter.
