Talk About Books

RRP $269.99

Over the last two decades, reading groups have become increasingly popular in the UK and the USA. More and more people seem to be interested in sharing their reading experiences and hearing other readers discuss their views on books, whether this is online, through the mass media, or in face-to-face contexts.

In light of this explosion in popularity of reading groups, this ethnographic study focuses on several reading groups based across a variety of settings: public libraries, public houses and in readers' homes. A range of methods are used to investigate the practices of the individual readers and the groups, including participant observation, interviews, and audio-recordings of meetings.

Reading groups are found to be highly ritualized and potentially competitive places in which matters of identity and taste are often at stake. The groups studied are conceptualized as communities of practice, and the literary interpretations and evaluations offered within each group are shown to be a product of shared norms established by this group.


Reading Latin Poetry Aloud Hardback With Audio Cds

RRP $386.99

Embracing the whole two-thousand-year corpus of Latin poetry, this book seeks to stimulate interest in the neglected art of reading aloud. It establishes a practical working pronunciation for Classical, Medieval and Renaissance Latin by means of a detailed analysis of the essential known facts, and it develops and explains a clear and practical system of phonetic notation, based upon the International Phonetic Alphabet. A substantial number of poems and extracts from all periods is offered for practice. Issues relevant to both quantitative and rhythmical prosody are fully discussed and translation notes are supplied to aid the student. Each poem is fully transcribed into phonetics and is accompanied by an English verse translation, whose main purpose is to reveal something of the literary quality of the verse. Two accompanying CDs aid pronunciation by giving the practice words found in the pronunciation sections and offering a complete reading of the poems.
