The Ruby in the Dust: Poetry and History of the Indian Padmâvat by Sufi Poet Muhammad Jâyasî (AUP - Leiden University Press)

The Ruby in the Dust: Poetry and History of the Indian Padmâvat by Sufi Poet Muhammad Jâyasî (AUP - Leiden University Press) by Thomas de Bruijn
English | Aug. 15, 2013 | ISBN: 9087281129 | 373 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

The epic poem Padmâvat, written in 1540 by the Indian Muslim poet Muhammad Jâyasî, has often been read through the lens of contemporary Hindu and Muslim identity. But Thomas de Bruijn rejects the projection of modern notions of national and religious culture onto the poem, and instead looks to Jâyasî’s own time to find insight into the work.
The Twilight of the Avant-Garde: Spanish Poetry 1980-2000 (Liverpool University Press - Contemporary French & Francophone Cultu

The Twilight of the Avant-Garde: Spanish Poetry 1980-2000 (Liverpool University Press - Contemporary French & Francophone Cultures) by Jonathan Mayhew
English | May 1, 2009 | ISBN: 1846311837 | 179 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Twilight of the Avant-Garde: Spanish Poetry 1980-2000 addresses the central problem of contemporary Spanish poetry: the attempt to preserve the scope and ambitiousness of modernist poetry at the end of the twentieth century. Jonathan Mayhew first offers a critical analysis of the called 'poetry of experience' of Luis García Montero, a tendency that is based on the supposed obsolescence of the modernist poetics of the first half of the century. While the 'poetry of experience' presents itself as a progressive attempt to 'normalise' poetry, to make it accessible to the common reader, Mayhew views it as a reactionary move that ultimately reduces poetry to the status of a minor genre.

The most visible use of computers and software is processing information for human consumption. The vast majority of computers in use, however, are much less visible. They run the engine, brakes, seatbelts, airbag, and audio system in your car. They digitally encode your voice and construct a radio signal to send it from your cell phone to a base station. They command robots on a factory floor, power generation in a power plant, processes in a chemical plant, and traffic lights in a city. These less visible computers are called embedded systems, and the software they run is called embedded software.
