Miniature books, eighteenth-century novels, Tom Thumb weddings, tall tales, and objects of tourism and nostalgia: this diverse group of cultural forms is the subject of On Longing , a fascinating analysis of the ways in which everyday objects are narrated to animate or realize certain versions of the world. Originally published in Johns Hopkins University Press , and now available in paperback for the first time, this highly original book draws on insights from semiotics and from psychoanalytic, feminist, and Marxist criticism. Addressing the relations of language to experience, the body to scale, and narratives to objects, Susan Stewart looks at the "miniature" as a metaphor for interiority and at the "gigantic" as an exaggeration of aspects of the exterior. In the final part of her essay Stewart examines the ways in which the "souvenir" and the "collection" are objects mediating experience in time and space. Sign In or Create an Account.

Katie is enjoying her new role as head housekeeper for the Debreks. All she has to worry about is the moody, bad tempered Alexis. Katie has no idea why Alexis dislikes her so much, or why she has refused to feed from her. Certainly Amelia's theory that Alexis is attracted to Katie couldn't possibly be true. When Katie is attacked amid a burgeoning vampire-witch war, Alexis is set to go against everything her clan believes in. Forced to face her longing for Katie, she is torn between opening her heart to a human and abandoning her clan when they need her the most.

Even as they see their wages go down and their buying power decrease, many parents are still putting their kids' material desires first. These parents struggle with how to handle children's consumer wants, which continue unabated despite the economic downturn. And, indeed, parents and other adults continue to spend billions of dollars on children every year. Why do children seem to desire so much, so often, so soon, and why do parents capitulate so readily? Pugh spent three years observing and interviewing children and their families. In Longing and Belonging: Parents, Children, and Consumer Culture , Pugh teases out the complex factors that contribute to how we buy, from lunchroom conversations about Game Boys to the stark inequalities facing American children.

By scrutinizing the mundane and all that is taken for granted, these poems arrive at much wider vistas, commenting on human sadness, memory, and mortality. Punchy, fearlessly ironic, and wickedly funny, Popular Longing articulates what it means to share a planet, for better or more often for worse, with other people. Last week I read a novel about a man so awful that when he died I wept because it was fiction. I wanted it to be real so I could watch him really die.
