Download or read book The Seven Son & Seven Daughters written by Vernon Thomas and published by Christian Faith Publishing, Inc.. This book was released on 2016-12-31 with total page 110 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: During a time when young men have a hard time grasping what it means to sacrifice and take care of the family and young ladies have forgotten the art of what it means to take care of a household, raising children, and instilling morals and values in them . . . The Seven Sons and Seven Daughters is a heartwarming tribute that gives the depiction of a strong black woman who loved hard and allowed it to show in her everyday life. It is an epic tale of struggles of an ex-alcoholic father, who-through the grace of God-was able to lay down the bottle and pick up salvation and a new determination on life. It is the story of strength, adversity, spirituality, and growth, laced with the pain and tragedy of death and life after death. The Seven Sons and Seven Daughters is a gentle reminder of the days when blacks had little to no rights, with little to no resources to do much to better self and how a little Mississippi family found the strength to overcome every obstacle that was placed before them. In a day and age where technology has taken over the world, where children would rather stay in the house and play video games than to play in the park or play a good game of tag or freeze football. During an era where little girls don't see the joy in playing with Barbie's or playing dress up, in their mother's old clothes.

Gathered from around the world, from regions as diverse as sub-Saharan Africa and Western Europe, from North and South American Indian cultures and New World settlers, from Asia and the Middle East, these 100 folktales celebrate strong female heroines. Fearless Girls, Wise Women, and Beloved Sisters is for all women who are searching to define who they are, to redefine the world and shape their collective sensibility. It is for men who want to know more about what it means to be a woman. It is for our daughters and our sons, so that they can learn to value all kinds of courage, courage in battle and the courage of love. It is for all of us to help build a more just vision of woman.

Latin Via Ovid

Publisher : Wayne State University Press
Release Date :
ISBN : 9780814317327
Pages : 494 pages
Rating Book: 4.1/5 (317 users)

Download or read book Latin Via Ovid written by Norma Goldman and published by Wayne State University Press. This book was released on 1982 with total page 494 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Using an introduction to mythology by the master storyteller Ovid himself, the authors have prepared a unique teaching tool designed to achieve proficiency at Latin in one year at the college level, two years at the high school or intermediate level. The volume provides students with imaginative, connected reading, beginning with introductory prose versions of Ovid's simple myth tales and progressing to the rich poetry of Ovidian Latin (with appropriate teaching aids) within forty lessons. The grammatical approach is traditional, but the central emphasis is on reading. In each chapter the reading appears first, followed by the vocabulary, the grammar, exercises, and etymology relating to the vocabulary. The exercises begin with a group of questions in Latin (based on the reading), to be answered in Latin. Each tale is preceded by a brief discussion in English of the story and its mythological significance. The myths retold by Ovid and the attractive format are conceived to impel the student into acquiring the skill to read the author in the original language. For additional complimentary materials on this topic, please see Latin Via Ovid Audio materials (available via downloadable flash drive and cassette tapes) by Norma Goldman and Jacob E. Nyenhuis and the accompanying text Practice, Practice: A Latin Via Ovid Workbook by Norma Goldman and Michael Rossi.

Folktales of the Jews, V. 3 (Tales from Arab Lands)

Publisher : Jewish Publication Society
Release Date :
ISBN : 0827608713
Pages : 844 pages
Rating Book: 4.2/5 (827 users)

Download or read book Folktales of the Jews, V. 3 (Tales from Arab Lands) written by Dan Ben Amos and published by Jewish Publication Society. This book was released on 2011-05-01 with total page 844 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Thanks to these generous donors for making the publication of the books in this series possible: Lloyd E. Cotsen; The Maurice Amado Foundation; National Endowment for the Humanities; and the National Foundation for Jewish Culture Tales from Arab Lands presents tales from North Africa, Yemen, Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq in the latest volume of the most important collection of Jewish folktales ever published. This is the third book in the multi-volume series in the tradition of Louis Ginzberg?s timeless classic, Legends of the Jews. The tales here and the others in this series have been selected from the Israel Folktale Archives (IFA), named in Honor of Dov Noy, at The University of Haifa, a treasure house of Jewish lore that has remained largely unavailable to the entire world until now. Since the creation of the State of Israel, the IFA has collected more than 20,000 tales from newly arrived immigrants, long-lost stories shared by their families from around the world. The tales come from the major ethno-linguistic communities of the Jewish world and are representative of a wide variety of subjects and motifs, especially rich in Jewish content and context. Each of the tales is accompanied by in-depth commentary that explains the tale's cultural, historical, and literary background and its similarity to other tales in the IFA collection, and extensive scholarly notes. There is also an introduction that describes the culture and its folk narrative tradition, a world map of the areas covered, illustrations, biographies of the collectors and narrators, tale type and motif indexes, a subject index, and a comprehensive bibliography. Until the establishment of the IFA, we had had only limited access to the wide range of Jewish folk narratives. Even in Israel, the gathering place of the most wide-ranging cross-section of world Jewry, these folktales have remained largely unknown. Many of the communities no longer exist as cohesive societies in their representative lands; the Holocaust, migration, and changes in living styles have made the continuation of these tales impossible. This series is a monument to a rich but vanishing oral tradition. This series is a monument to a rich but vanishing oral tradition.
