Sixteen, innocent, and beautiful, April Perry is gang raped by five hoodlums. To shield her from publicity, her wealthy father sends her to Boston to complete her education. She returns to Tampa eight years later with a law degree and joins the District Attorney's staff. During her absence, the five rapists have been paroled and are back on the streets. The savage theft of April's innocence has left her psychologically damaged, ashamed of her body and maintaining a paranoid distrust of all men. Shortly after April's return, a killer using the name of Azrael, the Angel of Death, undertakes the systematic elimination of the rapists. During her absence, April's high school sweetheart Brad "Rock" Paxton has become a Detective Intern and is partnered with Lt. Luis Agosto, the acting head of Homicide. They are faced with the prospect that the girl that Rock loved as a youth still loves may be the killer, Azrael. When all of the rapists are dead except Josh Sampson--the leader of the gang--Azrael invites a select group to participate in his Josh's execution. Among those invited are Rock and his partner. They are helpless to deter the gruesome outcome as Azrael is unmasked.

What happens when your past comes back to haunt you? What happens when you uncover all of the old skeletons in the closet? What happens when you have a hell-hound on your trail? These are the questions that Parker Jacobs has been asking himself. For the last year he has been tormented by nightmares, haunts, and memories of the gruesome death of his mother. He is driven to the brink. He seeks out Dr. Jeffrey Lynn, a noted psychologist, for help. But the only help Dr. Lynn gives him is this; "Return to Braddington Lane, and face your fears." What he uncovers is a trail of murder, witchcraft, Satanism, and greed going back almost 200 years! From the quaint little town square of the Crossing, all the way to Jackson Square in New Orleans, Parker chases answers, always asking himself; "Why was my mother killed?" He travels to the Louisiana bayous in search of a mysterious Voo - Doo priestess, who might be able to help. Aided by a childhood friend, Marilyn, an old man, Jay, an Occult scientist, Dale, and a Baptist Pastor, Dean, he seeks to uncover vicious acts of horror that have been hidden since the end of the Civil War. Now, he has opened a wound in his old hometown of Creek Crossing, Mississippi, a wound that should have stayed closed. With the mayor, Don Bailey, breathing down his back, and abusing his power by using the police force to harass him, Parker seeks to close the Gates of Hell before the flames engulf the town and its people. Because once it's opened; it's the Devil to pay.

Mythic Patterns in Ibsen's Last Plays
Language: en
Pages: 224
Authors: Orley I. Holtan
Categories: Literary Criticism
Type: BOOK - Published: 1970 - Publisher: U of Minnesota Press

Mythic Patterns in Ibsen's Last Plays was first published in 1970. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Until recently critics have tended to regard Ibsen principally as a social dramatist, one who was concerned primarily with the political, social, and moral questions of his time. Radical though he was in the Victorian era, his ideas, with the passage o time, ceased to be avant garde,and for this reason many critics have dismissed him as outdated. Professor Holtan examines a major portion of Ibsen's work, his last eight plays, in a new perspective, however, and finds much that is of lasting significance and interest. Ibsen's initial impact came with the publication in 1879 of A Doll's House,the play which seemingly advocates a woman's right to leave her husband and children. His reputation as a social dramatist was only furthered by the appearance of his next two plays, Ghosts and An Enemy of the People. But Professor Holtan's study of the plays which came after these identifies in the later plays values which transcend the social problems of their time, penetrating questions of the human spirit itself. The eight last plays which Professor Holtan examines in this study are The Wild Duck, Rosmersholm, The Lady from the Sea, Hedda Gabler, The Master Builder, Little Eyolf, John Gabriel Borkman, and When We Dead Awaken. In these plays he identifies a mythic pattern and unity based in elements of symbolism and mysticism which have puzzled or annoyed readers and critics for years. In his mythic vision Ibsen's lasting contribution far exceeds that of his invention of the social-problem drama, Professor Holtan concludes.
The Journey to Greatness

Authors: Noah BenShea
Categories: Education
Type: BOOK - Published: 2005-11 - Publisher: Corwin Press

There is no greater challenge in any of our lives than the opportunity to become as great as we might yet be. The Journey to Greatness introduces the components that one encounters along the journey to greatness and the realization that this is a journey for all of us, each on our own way. benShea explores what constitutes greatness, highlights all the way stations that we may all encounter on our own unique journeys, and aligns the journey to leadership and learning. Organized topically around "way stations" or stops along the way, benShea first challenges readers to identify the areas in which they have strengths and weakness, encouraging the reader to work through the book accordingly. "Way stations" include the following: Knowing little/fear, Observation and self-witnessing, learning, responsibility, communication, culture and climate, change and resiliency, personal growth, empowerment, handling adversity, and embracing opportunity, among others. benShea concludes by encouraging the reader to celebrate achieving the journey to greatness, but not to presume that learning ever stops or the journey ever ends. "Greatness is like the horizon - it retreats as you approach it." Greatness, too, is more how we travel than where we travel, a process, not an arrival.
