Download and read online 2012 and the Ring of Light in PDF and EPUB Epiphany Of The Whitechapel Murders was written after an extensive investigation of the murders committed by "Jack the Ripper." This mainly non-fiction book, which also includes a fictional account of the victims' last night on Earth, also contains evidence which was not discovered until 2005. This solitary piece of evidence is the basis that forms the central plot surrounding this series of murders. "Jack the Ripper" was not one person; but a quintet of influential Aristocrats and an eminent Surgeon, who were committing these murders for ritualistic purposes. After six of these grisly murders, the murderers suddenly cease their activities after the death of Mary Jane Kelly. What is the reason for the cessation of murders? Could it be because Mary Jane Kelly had apprised Scotland Yard of these Aristocrats' involvement in a gay brothel, which catered to influential clientele? Or could it be something far more sinister, including Satanism and pedophilia?

Download and read online Strangers at Home in PDF and EPUB Strangers at Home reframes the way we conceive of the modernist literature that appeared in the period between the two world wars. This provocative work shows that a body of texts written by ethnic writers during this period poses a challenge to conventional notions of America and American modernism. By engaging with modernist literary studies from the perspectives of minority discourse, postcolonial studies, and postmodern theory, Rita Keresztesi questions the validity of modernism's claim to the neutrality of culture. She argues that literary modernism grew out of a prejudiced, racially biased, and often xenophobic historical context that necessitated a politically conservative and narrow definition of modernism in America. With the changing racial, ethnic, and cultural makeup of the nation during the interwar era, literary modernism also changed its form and content. ø Contesting traditional notions of literary modernism, Keresztesi examines American modernism from an ethnic perspective in the works of Harlem Renaissance, immigrant, and Native American writers. She discusses such authors as Countee Cullen, Nella Larsen, Zora Neale Hurston, Anzia Yezierska, Henry Roth, Josephina Niggli, Mourning Dove, D?Arcy McNickle, and John Joseph Mathews, among others. Strangers at Home makes a persuasive argument for expanding our understanding of the writers themselves as well as the concept of modernism as it is currently defined.
