自由撰稿人填詞集 : 自由撰稿人填詞集: 自由撰稿人填詞集

By: xiaoming xiaoming yu

目錄 《一線懸》 《遊子吟》 《無情過客》 《騙》 《想散就散》 《情面》 《終於愛上你》 《寂寞呼叫轉移》 《五月的雨露》 《海神》 《譚嗣同之歌》 《夜飄萍》

何謂古典自由詩派? 就新詩於歌詞的內容與形式關係的看法,談談作者的一些看法: 1)儘管古今中外,文學革命都從「文的形式」解放做起。新文學也是從語言、文字、文體的解放做起,然而自五四新文化運動以來,舊有的古典文學精華逐漸不被世人所注重,文的形式雖然得到解放,然而經不起歷史長河的考驗,劣質的文學語言和網路文學一度衝擊傳統文學,一度使得糟粕文學佔據文學世界的主流,古典自由詩派既兼顧新文學的形式解放,又汲取古典文學中的精華,使二者有機的融合在一起,誕生出了獨特的文體,既所謂的「古典自由派」。 2)古典自由詩派一直沿襲「詩體的大解放」。須「不拘格律,不拘平仄,不拘長短,有甚麼題目,做甚麼詩;詩該怎樣做,就怎樣做。」以語言的「自然的音節」為原則。 3)形式上的束縛使精神不能自由發展,內容不能充份表現。古典自由詩派解除了形式的束縛,將細密的觀察、曲折的理想、細膩的感情用微妙的文字表達出來,同時引經據典吸納古典文學元素、結合網路上流行文化,進行新的創作,包括歌曲的重新填詞,詩歌的創作等等。 古典自由詩派不追求押韻、平仄、對偶等作法;但講求「詩情」、「哲理」、「幻象」,更加注重詩的情節,使得詩歌更具有故事性和機構性,融合進了「玄幻」、「言情」、「懸疑」等短篇網路小說的情節架構,使得詩歌既有抽象部分亦有情節寫實作為鋪墊,在文字使用方面,更加強調字字珠璣,長話短說。...

The Delineation of the Day Signs in the Aztec Manuscripts

By: T.T. Waterman

Calendar symbols of one sort or another occur on a surprising variety of monuments, both of early and late periods. The most important of these monuments for the study of the workings of the calendar system in detail are certain remarkable picturebooks or manuscripts, made on folded strips of deerskin, or on paper made of the fibre of the maguey (Agave americana). These manuscripts are usually spoken of as "codices." Only a few of these native manuscripts survived the introduction of European civilization into America. Those which were preserved were taken to Europe as curiosities, and often preserved through mere luck. The ones still extant have received a great deal of attention since the early part of the last century. All but a few of the originals are still in Europe, and are at the present time considered priceless....

British Museum Guide to the Exhibited Manuscripts : Illuminated Manuscripts and Bindings of Manuscipts Exhibited in the Grenville Library : Part III

By: Julius P. Gilson

This Guide to the Manuscripts, Autographs, Charters, Seals, Illuminations, and Bindings exhibited in the Department of Manuscripts and in the Grenville Library first appeared in its present shape, consisting of three parts, each with twenty plates, in 1912. Part III is now reprinted substantially in the same form. The most important changes in this part of the exhibition are the additions to the section of English illuminations of the Durham Life of St. Cuthbert and the St. Omer Psalter, and to the French section of the Sainte Abbaye. The acquisition of the St. Omer Psalter is due to the generosity of Mr. Henry Yates Thompson. All three manuscripts have for some time been on view in a separate case, but now take their proper places in the arrangement. A few minor alterations and slight revisions of the descriptions have been made, the work being done, as in 1912, by Mr. J. A. Herbert, now Deputy Keeper....

Babylon’s Destruction

By: Arif Alwan

This play, predicted, over 30 years ago, what has exactly happened in Iraq in the past decade. Most of the Lebanese publishers rejected publishing this play. In 1975, Alkhalil Press published it and sold more than 2000 copies in the first year. The play then staged in Beirut and Aleppo .. (and probably other countries.. as it’s hard to keep track of these things in the Arab world). The play retrieves an image of the false past, with all its bogus ideas and the present that hasn’t learnt any valuable thing from that illusion which has caused the destruction. ...

The play was written in an intensive language that has further enriched the beautifully flowing dialogue between the characters. The protagonist is the witty magician, who challenges the Emperor in his weird and sudden decision to establish justice in his country, only because he is bored of being oppressor for so long....

Dorine: Mr. Tartuffe, Tartuffe: (always watchful) What do you want? Dorine: Why you hid the money in your pocket, if you were going to give them away to the needy people? Tartuffe: You are intervening in people’s affairs.. God doesn’t like this, my daughter. Dorine: Did you tell him ..the God.. that you took the money from my Master.. Mr. Orgon? Tartuffe: Why did you come here? What do you want? … And ..... why your blouse is blatantly open .. revealing so much of your breast? Dorine: Do you like it?. (unbuttons another button, he retreats back without turning his sight away from her breast) this is a sin .. Dorine: Why? Tartuffe: because God forbids woman to reveal parts of her body. Dorine: Do you think, Mr. Tartuffe that God cares about the breasts of the maids? ...

Coptic Manuscripts Brought from the Fayyum : Together with a Papyrus in the Bodleian Libray

By: W.M. Flinders Petrie; Walter Ewing Crum, Editor

The main collection is a result of Mr. Flinders Petrie's excavations in 1889, and was brought from Deir El-Hammam, three miles N. of Illahun. To it are added a few fragments (Nos. XX, XXVI, XLIX, and LIII), acquired at Hawara. The subjects represented are (I) Biblical texts :—To the one example previously described, a second is now added. (II) Patristic texts:—I have placed among these some curious fragments which give, inter alia, the account of a dream, because I was at a loss more appropriately to class them. (HI) Liturgical texts : A small group, put together since I wrote my former description. (IV) Letters : This section embraces (as in the other collections) a large proportion of the whole. (V) Lists and accounts: Some very small scraps are included here. Of the so-called Legal documents, numerous in Vienna,' there are but three mutilated specimens (Nos. XXXV, XXXVI, XXXVII). These I have held it allowable to class with the letters....

Pasha of Baghdad

By: Arif Alwan

A long story written in the form of a scenario. It was set in the last period of Turkish Empire. The period in which appointing a state governor (Pasha) can easily come about by paying small amount of money to the Emperor’s men in Istanbul, without taking into consideration the characteristics and personality of the person who would they send to become ‘Pasha’ of Baghdad. The story contains harsh scenes about the life of Baghdad’s inhabitants, and heavily relies on the true history of the city of Baghdad, including its famous places and characters. The events move dramatically throughout the story with loads of scenes of violence and chaos that reflect the people's psyches, traditions and their sorrows and hopes. ...

Ali and Zahra are sitting next to each other. Zahra: Would it be war? Ali : I do not know, my father says when the Sultan sent his army to Baghdad it must be war, inside or outside the city . Zahra : ( jokingly ) and what about you, are you going to join? Ali : ( proudly , but sarcastically ) I'll be an officer in the cavalry battalion , with the gun "pistol" of three inches. I will occupy this neighborhood in the first day.. and every evening I would hold all guards.., from midnight till morning. (They laugh) Zahra: See, the light of dawn began to appear there over the orchards. Ali: It is scary. Zahra: Why do you see it scary ? Ali: With the full dawn, the war may start. (Pause..) ..Zahra, I thought yesterday to speak with my mother ... Zahra: About what? Ali : So she can talk to my father about our marriage . ...

Earth Art requires huge work on land, sod, grass. It started in 1968 with Robert Morris utilizing a pile of dirt, and Robert Smithson who filled some boxes with rocks. Some projects demand enormous effort, for example carving the American presidential portraits in Mount Rushmore by Gustom Borglum, or wrapping the Australian coastline in 1969 with plastic and rope by Javacheff and Jeanne-Claude Christo (packed objects). Ephemeral patterns (art) in the snow by Dennis Oppenheim. But some earthworks are criticized of disturbing the nature and upsetting the ecology. Earth Outer-Art takes the work done by nature, such as Volcanoes, Storms, Hurricanes, Tsunami, Earthquakes, etc. as Found Earth Outer-Art, but unfortunately destructive art. Let’s say volcano Krakatoa in Indonesia, Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans… see how impressive destructive earth outer-art they did! Or the falling of a meteor on planet Earth, creating big craters as work of natural art. Thomas Cole, in the 19th century, believed that nature was created by God, who is an Artist. Catastrophic Outer-Art at a large scale is that inflicted by atomic bombs, as those at ...

Non Novel

By: Florentin Smarandache

NonNovel is indeed a novel of drawer, carried year after year in the bottomless sack of the exile. This fierce parabola about totalitarianism, about alienation, guilty obedience and lie, opportunism, cruelty, violence, monstrosity, written in a strong tensioned and lacking bashfulness style, situates Florentin Smarandache closer by Orwell, Konwicki, Koestler, Baconsky, and marks a new dimension of the Paradoxism....
