In this reworking of Aeschylus' Oresteia, Klytemnestra and Elektra face one another in a dramatic confrontation. Attempts to come to terms with their violent past echo testimonies delivered in Apartheid's wake throughout South Africa during the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Aeschylus' chorus is replaced by Xhosa tribeswomen, who bring grace and humanity through their ancient art of split tone singing. Molora (the Sesotho word for 'ash') is an examination of vengeance, and the breaking of its cycles by the everyman.

A castaway tossed onto a deserted beach is the last survivor of a world that no longer exists. He has a terrible, fascinating story to tell - the true reason for which the Trojan War was fought ... The protagonist of this tale is Diomedes, the last of the great ancient Greek Homeric heroes, who seeks to return to his beloved homeland after years of war against Troy. But destiny has other plans for him. Betrayed by his wife, who plots to murder him and persecuted by hostile gods, he has no choice but to turn his sails west, towards Hesperia, the mysterious mist-shrouded land that will one day be called Italy. He ventures boldly into this new world, for he carries with him the magic Talisman of Troy, a mysterious, powerful idol that can make the nation that possesses it invincible ...

The eight essays translated here by Motoyama's colleagues from North America and Europe broadly cover the eventful half century that witnessed the collapse of the Tokugawa shogunate and the rise of the modern Japanese state to the position of an international power. They deal topically with political, intellectual, and educational issues that occupied the attention of the Japanese government and public in the period from 1853, the momentuous year of Commodore Perry's arrival, to 1905 and the aftermath of another climactic event, Japan's victory over Russia. In the essay from which the book's title is derived, Motoyama examines a private school in Kumamoto, the Seiseiko (School of Proliferating Talent), which was run by a group with a rebel background but statist interests. The group and its school are a prime example of the ambiguities explored throughout the volume. The essays muster a great variety of sources, ranging from graffiti and popular doggerel of the period immediately before the Meiji Restoration to the discourses, letters, and diaries of major intellectual and political figures of the Meiji period.

Waltzing with Bashir proposes a new paradigm for cinema trauma studies - the trauma of the perpetrator. Recognizing a current shift in interest from the trauma suffered by victims to that suffered by perpetrators, the book seeks to theorize this still under-studied field thus breaking the repression of this concept and phenomenon in psychoanalysis and in cinema literature. Taking as a point of departure the distinction between testimony given by the victim and confession made by the perpetrator, this pioneering work ventures to define and analyze perpetrator trauma in scholarly, representational, literary, and societal contexts. In contrast to the twentieth-century definition of the perpetrator based on modern wars and totalitarian regimes,Morag defines the perpetrator in the context of the twenty-first century's new wars and democratic regimes. The direct result of a drastic transformation in the very nature of war, made manifest by the lethal clash between soldier and civilian in a battlefield newly defined in bodily terms, the new trauma paradigm stages the trauma of the soldier turned perpetrator, thus offering a novel perspective on issues of responsibility and guilt. Such theoretical insights demonstrate that the epistemology of the post-witness era requires breaking deep-seated psychological and psychiatric, as well as cultural and political, repression. Driven by the emergence of a new wave of Israeli documentary cinema, Waltzing with Bashir analyzes the Israeli film and literature produced in the aftermath of the second Intifada. As Ari Folman’s Waltz with Bashir and other new wave films demonstrate, Israeli cinema, attached on one side to the legacy of the Holocaust and on the other to the Israeli Occupation, is a highly relevant case for probing the limits of both victim and perpetrator traumas, and for revisiting and recontextualizing the crucial moment in which the victim/perpetrator cultural symbiosis is dismantled.

“Even when we are far away from each other, I want my love to be with you always, like a happy thought at the heart of sad days, or a friend that keeps you company when you’re alone. I hope that my love makes itself useful, like a shawl you put on when you’re cold, and that you can rest on it when you are flying away, free and light. . . . Remember my thoughts are with you always, my heart belongs to you, and my soul is wherever you are.” Easter Sunday, April 25, 2011. The body of wine magnate Domenico Moresco is found in the forest of Costamagna, Italy. The investigators think he died of a heart attack, but the police commissioner suspects foul play and so begins an investigation into the sordid and entangled past of men, town, and country. Moresco’s death casts a long shadow over the small town, where friends and enemies can be one and the same, and brings to light secrets long kept quiet. Secrets that were buried in the last days of World War II. Secrets involving treasure and a woman with a heart-shaped smile. A gripping noir and a moving love story, My Soul Is Wherever You Are is a novel that embodies the tone and traditions of modern Italy.
