Written after his wife’s tragic death as a way of surviving the „mad midnight moments.” A Grief Observed is C. S. Lewis’ honest reflection on the fundamental issues of life. death. and faith in the midst of loss. This work contains his concise. genuine reflections on that period: „Nothing will shake a man-or at any rate a man like me-out of his merely verbal thinking and his merely notional beliefs. He has to be knocked silly before he comes to his senses. Only torture will bring out the truth. Only under torture does he discover it himself.” This is a beautiful and unflinchingly honest record of how even a stalwart believer can lose all sense of meaning in the universe. and how he can gradually regain his bearings.

But it is through her mistakes that Emma finds humility. wisdom. and true love. Told with the shrewd wit and delicate irony which have made Jane Austen a master of the English novel. Emma is a comic masterpiece whose fanciful heroine has gained the affection of generations of readers.

Second Line of Defense
In tracing the rise of the modern idea of the American „new woman.” Lynn Dumenil examines World War I’s surprising impact on women and. in turn. women’s impact on the war.Telling the stories of a diverse group of women. including African Americans. dissidents. pacifists. reformers. and industrial workers. Dumenil analyzes both the roadblocks and opportunities they faced. She richly explores the ways in which women helped the United States mobilize for the largest military endeavor in the nation’s history. Dumenil shows how women activists staked their claim to loyal citizenship by framing their war work as home-front volunteers. overseas nurses. factory laborers. and support personnel as „the second line of defense.” But in assessing the impact of these contributions on traditional gender roles. Dumenil finds that portrayals of these new modern women did not always match with real and enduring change.Extensively researched and drawing upon popular culture sources as well as archival material. The Second Line of Defense offers a comprehensive study of American women and war and frames them in the broader context of the social. cultural. and political history of the era.
