Metaphor and metonymy irony and hyperbole chiasmus and antithesis learning all the funny names of the figures of speech can be a real challenge. Learning how to recognize the figures in our reading and apply them in our writing can be even harder. So why should we even bother? Over a century ago, a popular Canadian novelist and professor of rhetoric, James De Mille, offered several good reasons for studying the figures of speech. Though we might word them a bit differently today, the points he made in 1878 still hold true. Answer: Figures of speech are of such importance that they must always occupy a prominent place in every treatise on style or criticism. Though differing in special character or effects, they all have one thing in common, and that is, they contribute beyond anything else to the

Length: 59 min. Description This radio dramatization of the classic movie, featuring the original stars, aired on February 13, 1950. The Lux Radio Theatre was one of radio's most popular series, attracting Hollywood's top stars and boasting a lavish budget. It began in 1934 by featuring dramas from Broadway, but there was not enough material to support the show. In an attempt to reverse the slipping ratings, the show was moved to Hollywood in 1936, where there was plenty of material and talent. In fact, filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille often served as the host. more products: Menace in Europe: Why the Continent's Crisis is...
Extractions: shop mailing lists search: home film theatre classical ... features / reviews: festivals gigs albums James @ Brixton Academy, London, 8 November 2000 James at Brixton Academy in 1989 was one of the first gigs I ever went to. I have loved them ever since and I am told that when I try and "make some shapes" I dance like Tim Booth with a generous spattering of Bez, excellent when you are a lean, lithe star but appalling when you are a 15 stone drunk with very little rhythm. Brixton Academy is the finest live music venue in the known universe and I have neglected it of late. Both Tim and I agree it is wonderful to be back. In the beginning, pre Sit Down, James were a cheeky four piece with three albums of fantastically crafted songs championed by Morrissey as "the best band in the world". Despite limited commercial success their live shows had a large and loyal following. One Man Clapping, a self-financed live album released by the band after they were dropped by Sire, remains a much sought-after classic. James also produced simple but highly prized t-shirts which were readily snapped up by people who, although they had never heard Come Home, were quite prepared to have it emblazoned on their chest, back or sleeve. There was a time when the band survived on t-shirt sales topped up with the income from being human guinea pigs at a new drug testing centre. The release of Sit Down caught James by surprise and changed all that. They now have double platinum albums and American success. Tonight they start with four new songs. "Stick with us," asks Tim, but he needn't worry. They are superbly received and form a brilliant preparation for the first of the rabble-rousers, Say Something, which gets a huge reception as does the highly appropriate deluge Sometimes, followed by Tomorrow. James then wheel out more new material, swirling orchestral arrangements, "the difficult ones" that end with "Pleased to meet you" tritely delivered by Tim shaking hands with practically everyone who wants to.

"It has sometimes crossed my mind that James wanted to be a poet and an artist, and that there lay in him, beneath the ocean of metaphysics, a lost Atlantis of fine arts: and that he really hated philosophy and all its works, and pursued them only as Hercules might spin or as a prince in a fairy tale sorts seeds for an evil dragon, or as anyone might patiently do some careful work for which he had no aptitude."

Extractions: "My philosophy is what I call a radical empiricism, a pluralism, a 'tychism,' which represents order as being gradually won and always in the making. It is theistic, but not essentially so. It rejects all doctrines of the Absolute. It is finitist; but it does not attribute to the question of the Infinite the great methodological importance (Pillon) and Renouvier attribute to it. I fear that you may find my system too bottomless and romantic. I am sure that, be it in the end judged true or false, it is essential to the evolution of clearness in philosophical thought that someone should defend a pluralistic empiricism radically."

Extractions: Lately, however, I've been "hot on the trail" of my maternal line which includes the families of THOMAS(b. abt 1844) & BRIDGET(b. abt. 1846) BREW MOONEY. Thomas was born in Canada and Bridget is listed as coming from Ireland. Four daughters were born to them (MARY ANN b. 1/6/1867; AGNES b. 8/14/1868; MARGARET b. 3/6/1870; and THERESA b. 7/1/1872). Both parents died at a rather young age and the sisters were separated; Mary Ann possibly to Pittsburgh, PA to live with MARGARET BREW BUNCH; Agnes was taken in by the THOMAS CAROLAN family in Ontario; Margaret went to Ashtabula Cty., Ohio to be raised by her uncle, MICHAEL BREW with the help of his mother, MARY HIGGINS BREW; and Theresa was placed in a foundling home as a baby but unclear as to its whereabouts. Theresa lived in the Ashtabula area and I believe first married a Mr. FREEMAN in 1895 and then later to ISAAC SHIPMAN about 1909.
