Maine's Premier Medical Community

release date: May 08, 2018
Maine's Premier Medical Community
The medical community in Portland, Maine in the 1950''s and 1960''s was similar to that of most smaller cities in the US - dominated by general practitioners, internists and general surgeons. From the mid 1970''s through the early 1990''s the physician complement in Portland doubled. Many well trained primary care doctors and subspecialists relocated here, frequently from well-respected academic centers, to pursue the "Maine lifestyle" while practicing and in many cases continuing their academic careers in a collegial and "livable" environment. They brought with them the training, experience, work ethic and imagination to transform the medical community into the clinical powerhouse that currently exists. The initial investment, risk, and personal effort required to attract the most talented available physicians to Portland - and to support them financially and professionally during their early years - was borne almost exclusively by the existing doctors and their private practices. The purpose of this collection of 36 chapters, comprised of individual narratives written by the participants, is to ensure that the story of this now aging generation is not lost. These doctors, most often sole proprietors of their own small businesses, provided the spirit, energy, collegiality, and generosity that were the driving force behind our now sophisticated and high-functioning medical community.

James Joyce's Ulysses

release date: Oct 20, 2017
James Joyce's Ulysses
Excerpt from James Joyce''s Ulysses: A Study The ''key'' to Ulysses, as M. Valery Larbaud has remarked, is plain to see on'' its title-page: the name ''ulysses''. It is in the story of the Odyssey that we may find a clue to the obscurities in this modern epic of a Dublin day. And the justification for this approximation of the ancient to the modem is founded on mysticism, ''upon incertitude, upon unlikelihood'', like the Church, like all the theories that, hot for certainties, sapient man has concocted to solve the scheme of things. In writing this study I have not hesitated to emphasize the importance of the Homeric analogies and to explore certain remote hinterlands of esoteric thought.

Caligula and Other Plays

release date: Oct 31, 2013
Caligula and Other Plays
Caligula reveals some aspects of the existential notion of ''the absurd'' by portraying an emperor so mighty and so desperate in his search for freedom that he inevitably destroys gods, men and himself. The dramatic impetus of Cross Purpose, however, comes from the tension between consent to and refusal of man''s absurdity; it is the tragedy of a man who returns home to his mother and sister without revealing his identity to them. By the time of The Just and The Possessed, refusal and rebellion have taken over, and in these overtly political plays (the latter based on Dostoyevsky''s The Devils) Camus dramatizes action and revolt in the name of liberty. Albert Camus was born in Algeria in 1913. His play, Caligula, appeared in 1939. His first two important books, L''Etranger (The Outsider) and the long essay Le Mythe de Sisyphe (The Myth of Sisyphus), were published when he returned to Paris. After the war he devoted himself to writing and established an international reputation with such books as La Peste (The Plague 1947), Les Justes (The Just 1949) and La Chute (The Fall; 1956). He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1957. He was killed in a road accident in 1960.

Reflections on James Joyce

Reflections on James Joyce
"Stuart Gilbert''s friendship with James Joyce began in Paris in 1927 after Gilbert read several pages from a forthcoming French translation of Ulysses in the window of Sylvia Beach''s Shakespeare and Company book shop and went in to tell Beach that the translation was poorly done. She reported the encounter to Joyce, who subsequently sought out Gilbert. Their meeting began a literary collaboration and friendship that lasted until Joyce''s death in 1941." "This journal is a chronicle of that remarkable and productive friendship. Stuart Gilbert records many amusing anecdotes and provocative opinions regarding Joyce''s social life, his relationship with his wife, Nora, and his compositional techniques for Finnegans Wake. Also included in the book are some of Joyce''s previously unpublished letters to Gilbert (also reproduced in photographs), numerous unpublished photographs, and a typically dyspeptic 1941 essay on Joyce, Paul Leon, and Herbert Gorman by Gilbert. The volume is fully annotated and contains an introduction by noted Joyce scholar Thomas F. Staley." "These materials from the Stuart Gilbert Archive of the Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin offer new perspectives on literary Paris of the 1920s and 1930s. They will be important for everyone interested in the modernist period."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc. All Rights Reserved

From Eden to Paradise

From Eden to Paradise
"In a town called Paradise, California ... lived a young man named John Gilbert. I like to think of him as a friend of mine, though we''ve never met. When he was five years old, John was diagnosed with Duchenne muscular dystrophy. It is a genetic, progressive, and cruel disease. He was told it would eventually destroy every muscle and finally, in a space of ten more years or so, take his life. John passed away a short while ago at the age of twenty-five. Toward the end of his life...he had only enough strength to move a computer mouse with his right hand. But he did that brilliantly. He sent me a manuscript of the story of his life that is one of the most moving pieces I have ever read." John Ortberg Author Pastor, Menlo Park Presbyterian Church This book is about hope and perspective, offered to those who know both disease and aloneness in all their forms, and to those who desperately love the many in our midst who are seemingly "among the least of these." Our hope is that you will find value in John''s story and his father''s reflections.
