Hamlet on the Couch - James E. Groves Summary

Hamlet on the Couch weaves a close reading of Shakespeare’s Hamlet with a large variety of contemporary psychoanalytic and psychological theory, looking at the interplay of ideas between the two. Hamlet can be read almost as a psychoanalytic case study and be used to understand and illustrate a range of core psychoanalytic concepts. Covering such basic psychoanalytic concepts as identity, transference and countertransference, the ‘good-enough’ mother, the compulsion to repeat and the death instinct, James E. Groves shows how Hamlet can shed new light on understanding psychoanalytic theory, and how psychoanalysis can in turn enrich our understanding of Shakespeare’s work. Perhaps the most radical feature of psychoanalysis is its tradition of self-examination. Mirroring it, the book throughout uses an eclectic, subjective critical approach to study how the poetry of Hamlet creates its realistically flawed and believably complex characters. Combining deep, insightful knowledge of Shakespeare and of psychoanalysis, Hamlet on the Couch will be of great interest to psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists, as well as literary scholars.

Scottish Ghost Stories - Elliott O'Donnell Summary

Several years ago, bent on revisiting Perthshire, a locality which had great attractions for me as a boy, I answered an advertisement in a popular ladies' weekly. As far as I can recollect, it was somewhat to this effect: "Comfortable home offered to a gentleman (a bachelor) at moderate terms in an elderly Highland lady's house at Pitlochry. Must be a strict teetotaller and non-smoker. F.M., Box so-and-so." The na�vet� and originality of the advertisement pleased me. The idea of obtaining as a boarder a young man combining such virtues as abstinence from alcohol and tobacco amused me vastly. And then a bachelor, too! Did she mean to make love to him herself? The sly old thing! She took care to insert the epithet "elderly," in order to avoid suspicion; and there was no doubt about it-she thirsted for matrimony. Being "tabooed" by all the men who had even as much as caught a passing glimpse of her, this was her last resource-she would entrap some unwary stranger, a man with money of course, and inveigle him into marrying her._We are delighted to publish this classic book as part of our extensive Classic Library collection.

Ghost Boy - Martin Pistorius Summary

They all thought he was gone. But he was alive and trapped inside his own body for ten years. In January 1988 Martin Pistorius, aged twelve, fell inexplicably sick. First he lost his voice and stopped eating. Then he slept constantly and shunned human contact. Doctors were mystified. Within eighteen months he was mute and wheelchair-bound. Martin's parents were told an unknown degenerative disease left him with the mind of a baby and less than two years to live. Martin was moved to care centers for severely disabled children. The stress and heartache shook his parents’ marriage and their family to the core. Their boy was gone. Or so they thought. Ghost Boy is the heart-wrenching story of one boy’s return to life through the power of love and faith. In these pages, readers see a parent’s resilience, the consequences of misdiagnosis, abuse at the hands of cruel caretakers, and the unthinkable duration of Martin’s mental alertness betrayed by his lifeless body. We also see a life reclaimed—a business created, a new love kindled—all from a wheelchair. Martin's emergence from his own darkness invites us to celebrate our own lives and fight for a better life for others.

Grief Cottage - Gail Godwin Summary

Publishers Weekly Best Books of 2017 (Top 10) Chicago Public Library Best of the Best Books 2017 Indie Next Summer 2018 Pick For Reading Groups The haunting tale of a desolate cottage, and the hair-thin junction between this life and the next, from bestselling National Book Award finalist Gail Godwin. After his mother's death, eleven-year-old Marcus is sent to live on a small South Carolina island with his great aunt, a reclusive painter with a haunted past. Aunt Charlotte, otherwise a woman of few words, points out a ruined cottage, telling Marcus she had visited it regularly after she'd moved there thirty years ago because it matched the ruin of her own life. Eventually she was inspired to take up painting so she could capture its utter desolation. The islanders call it "Grief Cottage," because a boy and his parents disappeared from it during a hurricane fifty years before. Their bodies were never found and the cottage has stood empty ever since. During his lonely hours while Aunt Charlotte is in her studio painting and keeping her demons at bay, Marcus visits the cottage daily, building up his courage by coming ever closer, even after the ghost of the boy who died seems to reveal himself. Full of curiosity and open to the unfamiliar and uncanny given the recent upending of his life, he courts the ghost boy, never certain whether the ghost is friendly or follows some sinister agenda. Grief Cottage is the best sort of ghost story, but it is far more than that--an investigation of grief, remorse, and the memories that haunt us. The power and beauty of this artful novel wash over the reader like the waves on a South Carolina beach.

Jason Molina - Erin Osmon Summary

Erin Osmon presents a detailed, human account of the Rust Belt–born musician Jason Molina—a visionary, prolific, and at times cantankerous singer-songwriter with an autodidactic style that captivated his devoted fans. The songwriting giant behind the bands Songs: Ohia and Magnolia Electric Co. had a knack for spinning tales, from the many personal myths he cultivated throughout his life to the poems and ballads he penned and performed. As with too many great musicians, Molina’s complicated relationship with the truth, combined with a secretive relationship with the bottle, ultimately claimed his life. Jason Molina: Riding with the Ghost details Molina’s personal trials and triumphs and reveals for the first time the true story of Molina’s last months and works, including an unpublished album unknown to many of his fans. Offering unfettered access to the mind and artistry of Molina through exclusive interviews with family, friends, and collaborators, the book also explores the Midwest music underground and the development of Bloomington, Indiana–based label Secretly Canadian. As the first authorized and detailed account of this prolific songwriter and self-mythologizer, Jason Molina provides readers with unparalleled insight into Molina’s tormented life and the fascinating Midwest musical underground that birthed him. It’s a story for the ages that speaks volumes to the triumphs and trials of the artistic spirit while exploring the meaningful music that Molina’s creative genius left behind.

Ghost of a Rose - Steven K. Craig Summary

Includes the booklet Narcissism "The Killer of Love" What could drive an individual who is emotionally strong and highly successful, with a hearty appetite for life, to suddenly lose all desire to live? What could possibly strip a religious person of all belief in God with the blink of an eye? Those vital questions are about to be answered. A Beautifully Disturbing Saga of Love and Survival. Within the throes of a madly passionate romance is the most ghastly soul rape and mind crime conceivable. The Great American "Psychopathic" Love Story exists in a world where nothing is real as perceived. Beneath the surface of what seems to be a fairy tale romance is the outline for what may very well be the perfect murder, and if you are naive enough to think it can't happen to you, you're wrong... dead wrong. Steven lives a life that most can only dream of. At a young age, he achieved fame in the music industry with the now iconic heavy metal band Slayer, and later as a world-renowned airbrush artist. He has everything that a man could want, except for what he desires most, which is, true love. A handsome, successful, charming man that lives and breathes romance, but has been unable to find the one woman that can captivate his heart. One glorious afternoon, Ashley stumbles into his life, and she is everything that he's hoped for and dreamed of. Their story begins as a passionate, tender, and erotic tale of two people falling in love. Together they seem to have the love that dreams are made of and fairy tales are written about. But do they really? Sometimes when it seems too good to be true, the love of your life may not be the person you think they are. On the surface, Steven and Ashley are the quintessential portrait of an enchanted romance, but underneath an illusion of ideal love is a transparent layer of lies, manipulation, and deceit. Unknowingly, Steven has become trapped in the lethal world of a pathological psychopath. Be prepared to have every one of your emotions assaulted by this unique true story. You will laugh, feel the passion and intense love, you'll get angry, experience excruciating pain, and yes, there will be tears. Live the story as the author experienced it. A memoir that is insanity in the raw, and just when you think it is all over, it begins again before leading to a shocking ending that will not soon be forgotten. Ghost of a Rose is the first romance of it's kind. Without any knowledge of its exsistence, the author documented from the beginning to end of his relationship with a pathological narcissist. The media has incorrectly portrayed Narcissistic Personality Disorder long enough. This is the true nature of the beast, and as melodramatic it may seem at times, this is what a victim experiences when having the life sucked out of him or her by an emotional vampire. You'll witness first hand the idealization "honeymoon" stage, the gaslighting phase, the abandonment, the torment, confusion, awakening, and healing as it all took place. Through the eyes of the author, you'll bear witness to a man systematically destroyed by a narcissist until his life is left in ruin. 'Dynamic personal stylized writing. Brilliant! A death to birth with a delivery that is painful as bloody hell." - Becky Joyce Reed "This book saved my life!" - Debbie Perez
