Neary, John
This book examines literary texts from various genres - prose fiction, plays, film - in order to explore the way dark and enlightening spiritual journeys are presented in literature. Combining literary criticism with Jungian approaches, the analysis focuses on well known religious, spiritual and psychological writings, with special reference to the work of James Hillman. Stanley Kubrick's film "Eyes Wide Shut" and Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic tale "Young Goodman Brown", which present uncannily similar stories, exemplify the book's theme: both are examples of a 'dark-side' narrative. In each case a limited, somewhat naive protagonist goes out, at night, into the darkness (the streets of New York in the case of Kubrick's protagonist, the New England forest in the case of Hawthorne's) and discovers things about himself and the world that he previously was unaware of. It is a disturbing discovery of deep imperfection and apparent perversity - an encounter with what Jungian psychology dubs 'the shadow'. But it is also an experience of what Christian theologian Paul Tillich calls 'depth', which he considers an experience of groundless mystery that is no less than an encounter with whatever people refer to when using the word 'God'. That a discovery of apparent perversity may be an illuminating experience of the divine is a paradox that lies at the heart of the mystery of each individual's 'shadow', no longer to be considered as a bundle of repressed negativity but as a harbinger of growth and soul, a doorway to spiritual illumination. In "Shadows and Illuminations", this paradox of dark-side narratives - that shadow is illuminative - is explored in relation to a variety of classic and contemporary literary works. 163pp. N.B. Foredge of pages marked. Bottom right corner of front board bumped.

Biegman, Niek
To date, Nicolaas (Niek) Biegman has published nine photo books, all concerned with people: in the streets of Amsterdam, New York, Egypt and Haiti, performing Sufi rituals in Egypt, Macedonia, Kosovo, Bosnia and Syria, oil wrestling in Macedonia and the painter Rein Dool. His work has been exhibited in Aleppo, Amsterdam, Cairo, Paris, Rotterdam, Skopje and Zagreb. This tenth book is the result of four years of walking and cycling around Amsterdam's streets and canals while mainly looking upward. Up there are the gables topped with exuberant wigs that are the trade mark of the city. The stone wigs contain the main living elements to be found in these photos: gods, dolphins, dogs, and lions. Additionally, the houses themselves show a human face to whoever wishes to see it. Biegman presents them as parts of the urban landscape, which attracts millions of visitors from all over the world, every year. Eventually, the visitors go home again. This book may help them to remember Amsterdam's peculiar architecture along with the canals and the streets where they discovered it. 133pp. N.B. Slight crease to spine edge of front cover.
