Dying In A Strange Country

by Tahira Naqvi, Dying In A Strange Country Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Dying In A Strange Country books, The linked stories in the collection have a life in the Pakistan community of North America. Set primarily among a large extended famiy from a beloved Lahore, at the center of which is the young and sensitive Conneticut housewife Zenab, the several voices of the stories all converge upon the shaky, though no less exciting and wonderful world of the immigrant. That world is evolving, at times amid protest - as when an aged aunt asks of a suitor, "But is he circumcised?" - and at times in surprising ways but always relentlessly. Guilt walks hand in hand with nostalgia, and desire to stay never completely overcomes that longing to return. But ultimately, as Zenab says, "All is not lost, is it?"

Socrates

by Sara Setayesh, Socrates Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Socrates books, This issue of SOCRATES has been divided into two sections. The first section of this issue is English Literature. The first paper of this section has been authored by Sara Setayesh. This paper reviews ‘Blasted’, the first play by the British author Sarah Kane. The paper analyses the Ian and Cate’s psychological behavior and their romantic relationship portrayed in the play, as important implications for psychoanalytic criticism. The second paper of this section has been authored by Muhammad Yar Tanvir and Dr Ali Usman Saleem. It evaluates the power, privilege or right enjoyed by the men in Pakistani Patriarchal society as reflected in ‘Attar of Roses and Other Stories’ of Pakistan, a collection by Tahira Naqvi. The objective of this paper is to pinpoint the social and political position of patriarchal society through which woman subjugation by men becomes a power, a privilege or a right to be exercised. Radical Feminism will serve as a theoretical and conceptual framework for the apt exploration of the problematic. The second section of this issue is Philosophy. The first paper of this section has been authored by Maftouni Nadia and Mahmoud Nuri. It analyses the Farabi’s philosophy (utopia) and concluded that the public is not used to implement their rational faculty and they cannot perceive the rational happiness directly. So the rational happiness should be presented to their imagination, and thus, the artist of the utopia makes images of the rational happiness using sensible and imaginary forms. The second paper of this section has been authored by Smrutipriya Pattnaik and C Upendra. The paper critically addresses the fall narrative of the narrative of the failure of the communist experiment. It claims that if the idea of “return to socialism” makes no sense, equally is senseless the triumphalism debate of liberal-capitalism. The third paper of this section has been authored by Lidija Kovacheva. This paper provides a comparative interpretation of the Ancient Greek image of Hermes as a mythological figure with the image of Archangel Michael as a highly revered Orthodox saint in modern Macedonian society. The goal of this research is to show the similarities and the differences between these two characters and how these images are understood today in modern society.
