Arabs believe that their ancestors composed poetry before they learned reading and writing. The poetic wealth that the elders have left us surpasses, in its richness, meanings and fertility, all what has been written afterwards. For in poetry, the Arabs boasted their achievements, victories, courage and works. They also satirized their enemies, mocked their rivals and faced their opponents. In poetry they also rhapsodized their loved ones, woman she was, or tribe, or country or belief. Poetry for the Arab was the spoken language, the language to express the sincere, honest and spontaneous thoughts, as well as inner most feelings and moods. Poetry was the daily bread for the spirit and relationships and a record for daily encounters and history. It is not strange that Palestine, in its land, its people, its disaster and tragedy becomes a rich material in our modern days for poets. Nor it is strange that Palestinian prose, and particularly Palestinian information prose, is reflected in a mature, integral and refine poetic ventures. With little elaboration and simplification the Poetic "weapon" in our struggle against the aggressors in Palestine and those who displaced its people, or poetic moans and cries of poets, substitute some demands for different forms of struggle that other nations use against their enemies or to attract friends. Beyond cynicism, we confess that poetry has at times nearly moved from the position of supporter and backer of revitalization the people and their uprising against the unjust to the front bunkers in the struggle of the Palestinian / Arab and Israeli/ Zionist arena. Marwan Dajani is one of the tens of the contemporary Palestinians who have chosen the poetry venue to express their innocent, true and spontaneous nationalistic and humane feelings. But he is one of the very few who took the challenge in a different language than his mother tongue, namely the English Language. In doing so he is trying to send his message, worries, wishes and expectations to the outside world. Maybe Marwan wants to record the incidents and facts that he and the Palestinian people have passed, and are still passing through. He records what these incidents involved of cruelty, injustice, assaults on laws, regulations and human rights; and expresses the hope of every Palestinian to regain their stolen land and the construction of a just society in their beloved Palestine. Marwan records all this in an artistic and committed style that steers away (but does not contradict) the true historical facts, scientist search, and information diffusion. Marwans poetry is a key that we hope the foreign reader can use to open the records of the Palestinian tragedy to know the truth that has evaded them for a long time. He is inviting the world to see facts as they really are and not as Zionist propaganda has faked and mutilated for over a century. Marwan also seizes the opportunity to expose his feelings and expectations in non-political matters that relate to family, religion, and reform matters. A man with a message, Marwan relates the truth without trying to use diplomatic sanctions and reservations which always strangle the truth and leaves the door for false accusations. The strength of his message lies in its truth, spontaneity and innocence; not in its rhyme, bright images, or sweet progressing. Marwan is not a professional poet, he is a natural poet, and here lies the richness of his poetry.

Clay Chapmans characters dont turn heads or perform dramatic feats of heroism. They arent highly educated or well-traveled. Their backgrounds and circumstances are unexceptional. Their stories, however, are anything but. Originating as a series of enthusiastically received monologues that this twenty-four-year-old author has performed around the country and abroad, Rest Area leads us into the minds of characters as real as they are original, and through a series of domestic horror stories that will leave readers breathless with amazement.

The German novelist, poet and critic W. G. Sebald (1944-2001) has in recent years attracted a phenomenal international following for his evocative prose works such as Die Ausgewanderten (The Emigrants), Die Ringe des Saturn (The Rings of Saturn) and Austerlitz, spellbinding elegiac narratives which, through their deliberate blurring of genre boundaries and provocative use of photography, explore questions of Heimat and exile, memory and loss, history and natural history, art and nature. Saturn's Moons: a W. G. Sebald Handbook brings together in one volume a wealth of new critical and visual material on Sebald's life and works, covering the many facets and phases of his literary and academic careers -- as teacher, as scholar and critic, as colleague and as collaborator on translation. Lavishly illustrated, the Handbook also contains a number of rediscovered short pieces by W. G. Sebald, hitherto unpublished interviews, a catalogue of his library, and selected poems and tributes, as well as extensive primary and secondary bibliographies, details of audiovisual material and interviews, and a chronology of life and works. Drawing on a range of original sources from Sebald's Nachlass - the most important part of which is now held in the Deutsches Literaturarchiv Marbach - Saturn's Moons6g will be an invaluable sourcebook for future Sebald studies in English and German alike, complementing and augmenting recent critical works on subjects such as history, memory, modernity, reader response and the visual. The contributors include Mark Anderson, Anthea Bell, Ulrich von Buelow, Jo Catling, Michael Hulse, Florian Radvan, Uwe Schuette, Clive Scott, Richard Sheppard, Gordon Turner, Stephen Watts and Luke Williams. Jo Catling teaches in the School of Literature at the University of East Anglia and Richard Hibbitt in the Department of French at the University of Leeds.

Like other fictional characters, female sleuths may live in the past or the future. They may represent current times with some level of reality or shape their settings to suit an agenda. There are audiences for both realism and escapism in the mystery novel. It is interesting, however, to compare the fictional world of the mystery sleuth with the world in which readers live. Of course, mystery readers do not share one simplistic world. They live in urban, suburban, and rural areas, as do the female heroines in the books they read. They may choose a book because it has a familiar background or because it takes them to places they long to visit. Readers may be rich or poor; young or old; conservative or liberal. So are the heroines. What incredible choices there are today in mystery series! This three-volume encyclopedia of women characters in the mystery novel is like a gigantic menu. Like a menu, the descriptions of the items that are provided are subjective. Volume 3 of Mystery Women as currently updated adds an additional 42 sleuths to the 500 plus who were covered in the initial Volume 3. These are more recently discovered sleuths who were introduced during the period from January 1, 1990 to December 31, 1999. This more than doubles the number of sleuths introduced in the 1980s (298 of whom were covered in Volume 2) and easily exceeded the 347 series (and some outstanding individuals) described in Volume 1, which covered a 130-year period from 1860-1979. It also includes updates on those individuals covered in the first edition; changes in status, short reviews of books published since the first edition through December 31, 2008.
