His first collection of comparative essays was hailed in 'Saturday Night' as demonstrating "that a critic can actually enhance the literature he is studying". In The New Hero, Ronald Sutherland, novelist, critic, essayist, teacher, and scholar, surpasses his earlier achievement.
These new essays serve to corroborate the conclusion of his earlier work, that English-speaking and French-speaking Canadians have a great deal in common and that their respective writings reveal a spectrum of shared values and attitudes. In this new work the similarity is highlighted by Sutherland's discovery that a 'new hero' has emerged in Canadian letters. This 'new hero', who has 'lurked' in the work of earlier writers, has now 'exploded from the pages' of contemporary Canadian fiction in both languages.
Writing in a style that is urbane and wise, witty and spritely, Professor Sutherland casts widely in these essays, and draws the net of his unique perception and intellect tightly around his theme. This book is a literary delight - full of incisive and startling observations on the culture, history, and writing of all Canada.

Book is clean and bright with unmarked text, free of inscriptions and stamps, firmly bound. Does their English betray the presence of another language, is that other language erased, or does it appear here and there, on special occasions for special reasons? Do words and meanings wander from one language and one self to another? Do the psychic and cultural worlds of different languages split apart or merge?
What is the aesthetic effect of such wandering, splitting, or merging? Usually described as? Wanderwords asks what, in the memoirs, poems, essays, and fiction of a variety of twentieth and twenty first century writers, the function and meaning of such language migration might be. It shows what there is to be gained if we learn to read migrant writing with an eye, and an ear, for linguistic difference and it concludes that, freighted with the other-cultural meanings wrapped up in their different looks and sounds, wanderwords can perform wonders of poetic signification as well as cultural critique.
In so doing, a poetics of multilingualism unfolds that stretches well beyond translation into the lingual contact zone of English-with-other-languages that is American literature, belatedly re-connecting with the world.

War novels are defined here as works in which 'the war is essential to the generation and resolution of the major conflicts and oppositions of the narrative", and, in addition to novels, the author examines literary journals and short stories of the period. The study is divided into three parts. The Hitlerian enemy was clearly defined and was often seen as a variant of the Prussian and Germanic aggressor. The stamping of boots on French streets is a sound as representative of the occupying forces as the sound of German or of rudimentary French being spoken.
Atack shows that in a few subtler and more complex works, such as Vercors's "Le silence de la mer", it was Nazi ideology, rather than German culture or the German people as a whole, that was identified as the enemy. Claude Morgan's "La marque de I'homme" was another work that presented the Occupation as a tragic break with German civilization and and culture. Novelists generally wished to cement and unify the opposition. Atack provides brief plot summaries and analyses of a wide range of novels, many of which are little known, and all of which attempt to present the positive values of the Resistance and to denounce the lies and half-truths of the official discourse.

They include examples fairly evenly distributed in time: accounts of battles in Scotland and Ireland, the Netherlands and France, Malta and Hungary, Russia and New England; pamphlets drawn from letters written by Englishmen, or pamphlets written by a variety of continental Europeans, both Protestant and Catholic; accounts of battles, sieges, and extended campaigns. They include pamphlets by the four most famous literary contributors to the genre: George Gascoigne, Thomas Churchyard, Anthony Nixon, and Hugh Peters, as well as reports of some notable historical events: the siege of Malta , the sack of Antwerp , the battle of Ivry , and the battle of Kinsale These news pamphlets provide examples of Renaissance English print culture, and register both the popular English interest in military and foreign news and the ability of the press to satisfy this interest.
Moreover, military news pamphlets were a considerable proportion of the entire corpus of news pamphlets in the 16th and 17th centuries, and integral in the evolution of the modern news. The reports, which register the shifting diction of Renaissance English and deploy a variety of novelistic techniques, also illustrate the transformation of early modern English prose and the prehistory of the novel.

Highly rhetorical in structure, they demonstrate the link between medieval and Renaissance rhetorical practice and early modern and modern journalistic style. The reports also provide a window into the everyday life of Renaissance soldiery and the world of Renaissance warfare on land.

From the great public performances at York and Chester, to the private collection of the Towneley MS, the plays were an index of the spiritual and social concerns of a sizeable section of urban English people.
This book sets out to examine historical, theological and textual evidence of those concerns. It proposes that the plays' agenda, while irrefutably orthodox, reflected a lay spirituality which was not always in accord with the disciplines of the medieval church. The plays provided a means for the expression of the spiritual needs of an increasingly self-aware and economically important laity.
The book places significant emphasis on textual close reading, and balances the mnemonic simplicity of the church's syllabus for the laity against the richness of the play texts. It examines the records of the guilds and fraternities responsible for some of the plays, and considers whether, in the light of their other activities, the main audience for the plays may have been the members themselves, rather than a wider public.

Reified as presence, as the Other of the Other, gaze, friendship, memory, partner, judge, etc. I had to get rid of them and wipe the slate clean. Grant was married five times. They considered marriage and vacationed together in Europe in mid, visiting the Roman villa of Dorothy di Frasso in Italy, but the relationship ended later that year. This proved to be his longest marriage,  ending on August 14, Grant married Dyan Cannon on July 22, , at Howard Hughes' Desert Inn in Las Vegas,  and their daughter Jennifer was born on February 26, , his only child;  he frequently called her his "best production".
My life changed the day Jennifer was born. I've come to think that the reason we're put on this earth is to procreate. To leave something behind. Not films, because you know that I don't think my films will last very long once I'm gone. But another human being. That's what's important. Grant and Cannon divorced in March Grant was hospitalized for 17 days with three broken ribs and bruising. Grant had a brief affair with actress Cynthia Bouron in the late s. Two days after this announcement, Bouron filed a paternity suit against him and publicly stated that he was the father of her seven-week-old daughter,  [aa] and she named him as the father on the child's birth certificate.
On April 11, , Grant married Barbara Harris, a British hotel public relations agent who was 47 years his junior. They became friends, but it was not until that she moved to live with him in California. Grant's friends felt that she had a positive impact on him, and Prince Rainier of Monaco remarked that Grant had "never been happier" than he was in his last years with her. Grant was at the Adler Theater in Davenport, Iowa , on the afternoon of November 29, , preparing for his performance in A Conversation with Cary Grant when he was taken ill; he had been feeling unwell as he arrived at the theater.
Basil Williams photographed him there and thought that he still looked his usual suave self, but he noticed that he seemed very tired and that he stumbled once in the auditorium. Williams recalls that Grant rehearsed for half an hour before "something seemed wrong" all of a sudden, and he disappeared backstage. Grant was taken back to the Blackhawk Hotel where he and his wife had checked in, and a doctor was called and discovered that Grant was having a massive stroke, with a blood pressure reading of over Grant refused to be taken to the hospital.
The doctor recalled: "The stroke was getting worse. In only fifteen minutes he deteriorated rapidly. It was terrible watching him die and not being able to help. But he wouldn't let us. Luke's Hospital. Cary Grant was supposed to stick around, our perpetual touchstone of charm and elegance and romance and youth. McCann notes that one of the reasons why Grant was so successful with his film career is that he was not conscious of how handsome he was on screen, acting in a fashion which was most unexpected and unusual from a Hollywood star of that period.
He wasn't a narcissist, he acted as though he were just an ordinary young man. And that made it all the more appealing, that a handsome young man was funny; that was especially unexpected and good because we think, 'Well, if he's a Beau Brummel, he can't be either funny or intelligent', but he proved otherwise". Grant's appeal was unusually broad among both men and women. Pauline Kael remarked that men wanted to be him and women dreamed of dating him.
She noticed that Grant treated his female co-stars differently than many of the leading men at the time, regarding them as subjects with multiple qualities rather than "treating them as sex objects". Philip T. Hartung of The Commonweal stated in his review for Mr. Lucky that, if it "weren't for Cary Grant's persuasive personality, the whole thing would melt away to nothing at all". James saw Grant as a "new and very important symbol", a new type of Englishman who differed from Leslie Howard and Ronald Coleman, who represented the "freedom, natural grace, simplicity and directness which characterise such different American types as Jimmy Stewart and Ronald Reagan", which ultimately symbolized the growing relationship between Britain and America.
McCann notes that Grant typically played "wealthy privileged characters who never seemed to have any need to work in order to maintain their glamorous and hedonistic lifestyle. He believes that Grant was always at his "physical and verbal best in situations that bordered on farce". He remarks that Grant was "refreshingly able to play the near-fool, the fey idiot, without compromising his masculinity or surrendering to camp for its own sake. I played at being someone I wanted to be until I became that person, or he became me". Grant often poked fun at himself with statements such as, "Everyone wants to be Cary Grant—even I want to be Cary Grant",  and in ad-lib lines such as in His Girl Friday : "Listen, the last man who said that to me was Archie Leach, just a week before he cut his throat.
Biographers Morecambe and Stirling believe that Cary Grant was the "greatest leading man Hollywood had ever known". On being presented with the award, his friend Frank Sinatra announced: "No one has brought more pleasure to more people for so many years than Cary has, and nobody has done so many things so well". Grant was awarded a special plaque at the Straw Hat Awards in New York in May which recognized him as a "star and superstar in entertainment". He was invited to a royal charity gala in at the London Palladium. In , Grant was accorded the Kennedy Center Honors.
From to , Grant starred in over seventy films. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

But I don't want to dwell on it I think the thing you think about when you're my age is how you're going to do it and whether you'll behave well. Once he realized that each movement could be stylized for humor, the eyepopping, the cocked head, the forward lunge, and the slightly ungainly stride became as certain as the pen strokes of a master cartoonist. No other man seemed so classless and self-assured Main article: Cary Grant on screen, stage and radio. There is no genealogical evidence available about his possible Jewish ancestry, however.
He donated considerable sums to Jewish causes over his lifetime. He had developed gangrene on his arms after a door was slammed on his thumbnail while his mother was holding him. She stayed up night after night nursing him, but the doctor insisted that she get some rest—and he died the night that she stopped watching over him. Grant was rejected, and informed that his neck was "too thick" and his legs were "too bowed".
It doesn't sound particularly right in Britain either". Schulberg agreed the name "Cary" was acceptable, but was less satisfied with "Lockwood" as it was too similar to another actor's surname. Schulberg then gave Grant a list of surnames compiled by Paramount's publicity department, out of which he chose "Grant". The boy replied, "Oh, that's Cary Grant. He's making [ Madame ] Butterfly with Sylvia Sidney". West then retorted, "I don't care if he's making Little Nell. If he can talk, I'll take him.
The press continued to report on the turbulent relationship which began to tarnish his image. The part gave him a dimension to play with and he took it headlong. He never flaws in the moving, pathetic, but inspiring behavior of a man whose career seems ruined by an accident but comes back through a mental hell, by virtue of love and the saving ruses of friendship. His acting here lifts him definitely above his prior standing.
Bosley Crowther wrote: "It is simply a concoction of crazy, fast, uninhibited farce. This sort of thing, when done well—as it generally is, in this case—can be insanely funny if it hits right. It can also be a bore.

He was a very agreeable human being, and we were very compatible Nothing ever went wrong. He was so incredibly well prepared. I never know anyone as capable". I was very affectionate with Cary, but I was 23 years old. I couldn't make up my mind to marry a giant from another country and leave Carlo. I didn't feel like making the big step.
