To be a subject is to be able to speak, to give meaning. The Art of Loving interrogates the phenomenon of "theatrical subjectivity"--female protagonists as both subjects and objects on the early modern English stage and within the illusion of Shakespeare's tragedies. The disparity between females as acting, speaking subjects onstage and male protagonists' objectifications of them constitutes the dominating gendered irony of the dramatic texts. In Romeo and Juliet, Othello, and Antony and Cleopatra, Professor Gajowski argues, women are not portrayed as they are valued by men. Endowed with a self-estimation that is independent of masculine estimations of them, Juliet, Desdemona, and Cleopatra subvert Petrarchan, Ovidian, and Orientalist discursive traditions by which males construct females as gendered, colonized others. The independence of their self-evaluation from conflicting male desire and repugnance for them accounts for their "infinite variety." The uniqueness of Shakespeare's representation of heterosexual relations is his creation of female protagonists who are relational, yet independent, human beings. The empowered female protagonists of Shakespeare's comedies are rightly celebrated by "compensatory" feminist critics; the disempowered--even victimized--female protagonists of his tragedies are rightly noted by "justificatory" feminist critics. To view the marriages of the comic females as nothing more than submissions to patriarchy, Professor Gajowski contends, is to ignore the crucial significance in Shakespeare's texts of affiliative capacities of both sexes of the human animal. Accordingly, to view the deaths of the tragic females as victimizations by patriarchy--and no more than that--is to ignore the commentary that Shakespeare's texts make upon masculine impulses of possession, politics, and power. While feminist critics recognize the significance of dramatic representations of sexuality and affective relations, recent materialist/historicist studies consider representations of sexuality and affective relations significant only insofar as they are relevant to the manipulations of Elizabethan and Jacobean political power and mechanisms of economic exchange. The privileging of politics and power on the part of these critics constitutes a perpetuation and reinforcement of patriarchal values. It has the effect of putting woman in her customary place: marginalized, erased, subservient to the newly dominant male discursive traditions. It is antithetical, moreover, to a genuinely feminist discourse because it deprivileges relationships, denying the power that they play in cultures and in texts. It is the difference between proclaiming, Creon-like, that families are subservient to the state and comprehending the far more complex psychosocial truth that the state is constituted of families. To assume that structures of political and economic power have greater value than sexual and affective experience is to ignore the interpenetrating nature of public and private experience that Shakespeare's texts depict.

Practice Makes Perfect Learning to love God is an art, says Fr. John Hampsch. It requires whole-hearted and concentrated effort—but the rewards are worth it! In The Art of Loving God, with characteristic wit and wisdom, Fr. Hampsch explores the process of spiritual growth, including the four stages of every person’s spiritual journey: ? Discovering that God loves us (and wants us to love him back). ? Learning to use the resources God gives us to sustain our faith journey. ? Facing with faithful hearts the “potholes, pitfalls, and panic” in life. ? Growing to spiritual maturity—and helping others to grow, too. Reverend John H. Hampsch, C.M.F. is a popular conference speaker and retreat master, and author of numerous pamphlets and books, including Healing Your Family Tree. Fr. Hampsch is a member of Claretian Missionaries. ------------------------------------------------------ “In this new work Fr.

There are as many paths to holiness as there are saints in Heaven . . . but you can’t follow them all. Yet there’s one thing every saint practices that you can imitate: the simple art of loving God, which the beloved St. Francis de Sales explains for you here. Under his wise and gentle guidance, you’ll discover the secrets to growing holier through the simple things in life — work, play, and rest. You’ll learn to avoid the distractions (even religious distractions) that trouble and weary your soul . . . and you’ll soon be able to focus your energy simply on loving God. Listen to the holy words of this saint; take them to heart; make them a part of your life. Soon you’ll be well on your way, following that path to Heaven that God, from all eternity, has given you as your very own. St. Francis de Sales himself will teach you the secrets of developing: Patience Trust Modesty Courage Simplicity Humility Obedience Generosity Perseverance Selflessness Gentleness Love of God and other key virtues A note for the skeptical and discouraged: Have you tried to grow closer to God using one technique after another, yet still find you haven’t made much progress? That’s a common problem in today’s world, where devotion has become so complicated that the simple art of loving God has been lost. Don’t despair. Generations of Christians have made finding God harder than it need be, which is why, every few hundred years, God sends us a saint like St. Francis de Sales to remind us that anyone can love God and that it’s not really so hard to do. Listen to St. Francis, and, no matter how many times you’ve failed in the past, you’ll soon be a master of the art of loving God.

The Art Of Loving A Black Woman was inspired by the many beautiful black women that I see in my urban community. I also intended this work of poetry to be a pedestal to promote the bonding of black men and women. I feel there is a need for black men to bring back respectable love for black women. A respect that stemmed from the bosom of Africa, on through slavery, but deteriorated in the 1980’s and seems to be depleting in this twenty first century. I feel more men should step up to the plate and express the way they feel about the beauty and grace of our women. I decided to be one of those black men and this work of art is dedicated to the strong black mothers, sisters, daughters, and to the black community in general. I have tried to compile a complete 360 degree view of a black woman and a black man’s feelings when pertaining to her. This 360 degree view is urban poetry inspired by relationships built upon marriage, sexual relationships, friendship relationships, courting relationships, spiritual relationships, erotic filled relationships, and most importantly love filled relationships. I find this is the ultimate poetry guide to aid black men in The Art Of Loving A Black Woman.
