The Memory Of Bones

by Stephen Houston, The Memory Of Bones Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Memory Of Bones books, All of human experience flows from bodies that feel, express emotion, and think about what such experiences mean. But is it possible for us, embodied as we are in a particular time and place, to know how people of long ago thought about the body and its experiences? In this groundbreaking book, three leading experts on the Classic Maya (ca. AD 250 to 850) marshal a vast array of evidence from Maya iconography and hieroglyphic writing, as well as archaeological findings, to argue that the Classic Maya developed a coherent approach to the human body that we can recover and understand today. The authors open with a cartography of the Maya body, its parts and their meanings, as depicted in imagery and texts. They go on to explore such issues as how the body was replicated in portraiture; how it experienced the world through ingestion, the senses, and the emotions; how the body experienced war and sacrifice and the pain and sexuality that were intimately bound up in these domains; how words, often heaven-sent, could be embodied; and how bodies could be blurred through spirit possession. From these investigations, the authors convincingly demonstrate that the Maya conceptualized the body in varying roles, as a metaphor of time, as a gendered, sexualized being, in distinct stages of life, as an instrument of honor and dishonor, as a vehicle for communication and consumption, as an exemplification of beauty and ugliness, and as a dancer and song-maker. Their findings open a new avenue for empathetically understanding the ancient Maya as living human beings who experienced the world as we do, through the body.

The Memory Of Rooms

by David Herbert Watkins Grubb, The Memory Of Rooms Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The Memory Of Rooms books, Poetry. THE MEMORY OF ROOMS provides journey of challenging enterprise, constant energy, quest and renewal as it engages with the gently autobiographical, deeply disturbing conflicts, tests of religious faith and ghosts of the soul. Grubb's landscape is crowded and often hectic; the real and the unreal often merge. "The poems have the clarity of a glass of water. And they shine with a light, which is, unmistakably, human love. Not sentimentality but real love, practical love. Love, without which art stumbles in the darkness. His poems will move you, delight you and sometimes shake you. He is one of our finest writers"—Adrian Mitchell.
