✏Voices from the Quarters Book Summary : "Mary Ellen Doyle gathers and makes audible the voices arising from all of Ernest J. Gaines's fiction to date - the indelible characters who inhabit the author's lifelong inspirational territory: the bayous, cane fields, and plantation homes of Louisiana's Pointe Coupee Parish. Beginning with the author's upbringing and influences on River Lake Plantation - amid the pecan trees and live oaks, the big house and the tenant quarters - this penetrating study offers close readings of Gaines's uncollected short fiction, the early collection Bloodline, and all of his novels, including The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman and the acclaimed A Lesson Before Dying."--The publisher.

✏Literature and Music Book Summary : This collection of essays centers on musical elements that authors have employed in their work, thus joining heard sounds to a visual perception of their stories. The spectrum of authors represented is a wide one, from Pound to Durrell, from Steinbeck to Cather, from Beckett to Gaines, but even more unusual is the variety of musical type represented. Classical music (the quartet, the fugue, the symphony), Jazz (the jazz riff and jazz improv) and the spiritual all appear along with folk song and so-called random “noise.”Such diversity suggests that there are few limits when readers consider how great writers utilize musical styles and techniques. Indeed, each author seems to realize that it is not the type of music that s/he chooses to employ that is important. Rather, it is the realization that such musical elements as harmony, dissonance, tonal repetition and beat are just as important in prose composition as they are in poetry and song. The essayists have selected some works that may be considered obscure and some that are modern classics. Each one, however, has captured one of the varied ways in which words and music complement and enhance each other.

✏Evolving Standards of Decency Book Summary : Evolving Standards of Decency examines the ways in which popular culture portrays the death penalty. By analyzing literature and film, Atwell argues that capital punishment becomes much more complex when both offenders and victims are presented as fully developed individuals. Those studying justice issues, corrections, or capital punishment will find this an accessible work that places the stories read in novels or seen in movies in the context of the legal system that has the power of life and death.
