Please note: This is an analysis and key takeaways of the book and not the original book. Start Publishing Notes' Summary, Analysis, and Review of Brené Brown's Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead includes a summary of the book, review, analysis, and key takeaways, and detailed "about the author" section. In Daring Greatly, Brené Brown expands her over 12 years of academic research on the anatomy of connection into a how-to on engaging more fully with ourselves and our world. The title comes from a 1910 speech by Theodore Roosevelt, given at the Sorbonne after his presidency, about disavowing the non-participatory critics in favor of the man in the arena. Brown discusses where our fear of vulnerability comes from, why we protect ourselves, the price of disengagement, and owning and engaging with vulnerability to transform ourselves into better (if messier) beings. Brown starts by introducing herself as a fifth-generation Texan, born to family with a "lock and load" approach that did not mesh with emotional vulnerability. She left corporate life and returned to school to be a social worker, but the research end - prediction, control - appealed to her more. During her doctoral process, she became a qualitative researcher, meaning the participants define the problem about the topic, and then the researcher develops a theory and sees where it fits in the existing literature (as opposed to proving/disapproving a hypothesis). She studied shame and empathy, and developed a theory of shame resilience. Use this summary, analysis, and review to get the gist of the book, or as an accompaniment to the original book. 1.

Literary Dialect in the Victorian Novel
79,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This work is thrilling in the sense that it relates literature to linguistics,rhetorics to dialect and art to sociolinguistics, The very thrill in it is its adoption to the interdisciplinary approach that mingles between distinct disciplines keeping the supremacy of logic far away from distortion. Accordingly, the book's gist relates to rhetorical use of dialect in literature which has become an emergent phenomenon in different literatures endeavouring to situate a character within a geographical location, ethnic group, educational level, social class, and others. Further, dialectal variation has many rhetorical effects as to show humour, degree of intimacy, age of a generation, nostalgia, solidarity of group, and belonging to a community, but our worry, in this research, is to show how can a writer of the standard deal with literature a discipline highly humane and, in the meanwhile, embrace dialectal variations in objective ways, the dilemma is set between preserving the text written in standard language and, at the same time, breaking some of the norms in including a spelling that fits rather a character s identity, social background, and regional origins.

7 deadly sins

Seminar paper from the year 2010 in the subject English - Literature, Works, grade: 1,3, Free University of Berlin, language: English, abstract: 'Whether we are willing to admit it or not, all of us are engaged, to some degree or another, in an ongoing battle with sin and vice.' (Dunnam and Dunnam Reisman 1 [in the following abbriviated as D&DR 1]) If this is the case, we need to become more aware of the 'important' sins and strive for as much knowledge about them as possible. Geoffrey Chaucer's Canterbury Tales. This collection of Middle English stories was written at the end of the 14th century. The different tales are told by pilgrims who are on a journey to the shrine of Saint Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral. The most interesting story which is discussing the subject of sins, is the Parson's Tale. 'The theme of the Parson's Tale is Penitence, and it is treated under the three main heads of Contrition, Confession, and Satisfaction.' (Cooper 402) A 'large proportion of the Tale [is] taken up by the analysis, in the course of the Confession section, of the seven deadly sins.' (Cooper 402) The Parson claims that these seven sins are the source of all other sins, 'now been they cleped chieftaynes, for as much as they been chief and spryng of alle othere synnes' (Chaucer Verse 386 [in the following abbreviated by 'V386']) and therefore it is reasonable to focus on these when investigating the subject of sin. However, this paper is unfortunately bound to a very small number of words and can therefore not analyse all seven sins. It will therefore only focus on two, commonly known as the sins of the flesh: gluttony and lust. Consequently, the body of this paper is divided into two sections; each will examine the relevant part of the Parson's Tale. An overview of the receptions of the sins of the flesh in the Middle Ages and today will be given, in order to understand their gist. This will be done by combinin

The Enigma of Good and Evil: The Moral Sentimen...

Striking toward peace and harmony the human being is ceasely torn apart in personal, social, national life by wars feuds, inequities and intimate personal conflicts for which there seems to be no respite. Does the human condition in interaction with others imply a constant adversity? Or, is this conflict owing to an interior or external factor of evil governing our attitudes and conduct toward the other person? To what criteria should I refer for appreciation, judgment, direction concerning my attitudes and my actions as they bear on the well-being of others? At the roots of these questions lies human experience which ought to be appropriately clarified before entering into speculative abstractions of the ethical theories and precepts. Literature, which in its very gist, dwells upon disentangling in multiple perspective the peripeteia of our life-experience offers us a unique field of source-material for moral and ethical investigations. Literature brings preeminently to light the Moral Sentiment which pervades our life with others -- our existence tout court. Being modulated through the course of our experiences the Moral Sentiment sustains the very sense of literature and of personal human life (Tymieniecka). Papers by: Tony E.
