Walking In The Scottish Borders

Walking In The Scottish Borders

This guidebook provides 45 day walks in the Scottish Borders. Separated into six sections, these walks are divided between the north and south Cheviots, Tweed, Ettrick, Moffat and Manor hills and feature main centres including Wooler, Kelso, Melrose, Peebles and Moffat. The guide's seventh section outlines long distance routes, including a walk along the Border from Gretna to Berwick-on-Tweed. The Scottish Borders are rich in both history and geology. These walks explore many historical sites, from Iron Age forts on hillsides to bastles and towers dating from the Border Reivers era. The stunning and varied scenery is a result of complex geological processes; a visit to Dobb's Linn showcases preserved fossils, while the coastline at St Abbs Head features iconic folded rock formations which are home to a myriad of birds including guillemots. Each walk features 1:50,000 OS mapping, comprehensive route description and plenty of information about points of interest along the route. The walks are graded and can be easily customised with alternative start points, route variants and shortcuts. The guide's introduction offers plenty of practical information about how to get there and where to stay, while the appendices list useful contacts and tourist information centres.

The Walking Muse

The Walking Muse

In laying the groundwork for a fresh and challenging reading of Roman satire, Kirk Freudenburg explores the literary precedents behind the situations and characters created by Horace, one of Rome's earliest and most influential satirists. Critics tend to think that his two books of Satires are but trite sermons of moral reform--which the poems superficially claim to be--and that the reformer speaking to us is the young Horace, a naive Roman imitator of the rustic, self-made Greek philosopher Bion. By examining Horace's debt to popular comedy and to the conventions of Hellenistic moral literature, however, Freudenburg reveals the sophisticated mask through which the writer distances himself from the speaker in these earthy diatribes--a mask that enables the lofty muse of poetry to walk in satire's mundane world of adulterous lovers and quarrelsome neighbors. After presenting the speaker of the diatribes as a stage character, a version of the haranguing cynic of comedy and mime, Freudenburg explains the theoretical importance of such conventions in satire at large. His analysis includes a reinterpretation of Horace's criticisms of Lucilius, and ends with a theory of satire based on the several images of the satirist presented in Book One, which reveals the true depth of Horace's ethical and philosophical concerns. Originally published in 1992. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Eight Muses Of The Fall

Eight Muses Of The Fall

This novel is on the one hand a young man’s frustrated attempt to write the great Filipino novel, and on the other, his coming to terms with the futility of his search for his lost mother. Along the way, he is guided and misdirected by some muses and demons to reimagine his personal past without the burden of national history. He will be forced to accept that truth can somehow be in the deceptive, inchoate recreation of memories, without which, the fall seems inevitable.

The Function Of Humour In Roman Verse Satire

The Function Of Humour In Roman Verse Satire

Roman satire has always attracted a large audience through its aesthetic merit. As for content, it has traditionally been held that the aim of Horace, Persius, and Juvenal is to offer moral criticism. Maria Plaza argues that behind the moralizing facade the reader may find more sinister motives, such as fear, envy, and sexual sensationalism. In this study she uses an analysis of humour to investigate the complex essence of Roman satire.

Muses Along The Way

Muses Along The Way

The first words I heard the Lord speak in my inner heart and spirit on the retreat were, "I know you can't think, reason, or love, but lean on me; I can do all things" For the first time in months I felt at peace. my mind which had been spinning out of control came to rest. The first chapter, "Desperation Street" shows how God loves us even when we can't love ourselves. The beginnings of our infant steps, as we learned to walk with Jesus. How his teachings filled with gentle loving kindness met us in our everyday needs. ~The lessons so simple and clear, that we could understand them. My prayer for the first year of our walk, always began; "forgive me Lord if I am praying wrong, I don't know any other way." With no one to guide us, he taught us to read and study his word, most of the time teaching with one or two versus of scripture at a time. Sometimes's going over those same verse's for weeks before understanding would come. He taught us not only to read his Word, but to find our answers in its pages, that it was alive and living not just words in a page of a book. Teaching Spiritual truths from a Christmas Tree, Eggs and everyday mundane things in our lives. Showing each of us, he was the God of our every day miracles. As you read this, and see in our lives how God taught us about His, I pray that God's love will bless you, and that you would hunger to know more of him.
