Dead men do tell tales - and myths

Dead men do tell tales - and myths | library and everything else | Scoop.it

✲ “Creating theatre in one of the world's youngest, poorest and at times troubled nations presents many challenges. And the unrest that followed East Timor's recent elections has added another layer of difficulty to what is billed as the first international professional theatre piece created there.”

 

✲ “…'Doku Rai' (You, dead man, I don't believe you), a work that intertwines myth, music and meta-theatre. It brings together Australian artists - including Thomas Henning and Gareth Davis - with Timorese performers who include Gonsalves - a former street kid and guerilla-turned court jester - a herpetologist, a tattooist and Timor's leading rock star.”

 

✲ “''When I met these guys we were all four years younger and all of us were really angry,'' says Wright. ''These are people really frustrated about the situation in their country and want to do something about it.''


But Doku Rai is not political polemic. ''It is about creating a shared myth between these groups of people,'' says Wright. ''We wanted to make something that is built on people's personal stories. It plays out as more of a metaphor than a history lesson.''”

 

✲ “A mythic tale from Gonsalves about a man who cannot die is also interwoven in the the work which was created over two months during which the artists lived and worked together in an abandoned hotel on remote Atauro Island, a couple of hours by boat from Dili.”

Hunting for Stories in the Philippines | Rochita Loenen-Ruiz | Weird Fiction Review | library and everything else | Scoop.it

➤ “There is a story of a woman who gave birth to a shard of porcelain that grew into the image of the Virgin Mary and her son. This image was guarded carefully by the woman’s family and handed down from mother to daughter, from aunt to niece. The image became a source of strength for the family, and the women into whose hands it came were gifted with the ability to heal people.”

 

➤ “A Filipina friend from the south, who heard of my quest for stories, told me this story about her grandmother who was courted by an enkanto, a spirit being. Her grandmother had already been married for some years when she encountered this enkanto. He became enamored of her and asked her to marry him, but she refused.

 

“I have a husband and I have my children,” she said.”

How to Write a Précis | Essay on Literature

How to Write a Précis | Essay on Literature | library and everything else | Scoop.it

Précis writing is a specialized writing requirement in which the student must accurately recount the book requested. For a non-fiction book, the student must argue basic points of the book, but in less than a quarter of the length of the original document or book.

If the book is fiction, the student in précis writing must narrate the book in his or her own words, but again, in less than a quarter of the original size.

One would need to take days or weeks out of the busy schedule to sit down with the book and read it very carefully then transfer the book onto paper and into the student’s own words without copying or infringing on copyright laws. It’s very time consuming. However, if you order now from EssayOnLiterature.com, our précis writing help professionals, we can have your writing assignment finished while you work on other assignments.

Things to Avoid in Précis Writing

• It is not a book summary
• It is not a book report.
• Do not inject opinion, argument (other than what the author has argued), or bias.
• Do not change the author’s mood, style, tone, or intent.
• Do not provide examples or correlations.

Be sure you rewrite a condensed version of the document, book, or article that say exactly the same thing as the author, just with different words. You wouldn’t want to use verbiage such as “The author says…” or “What this paragraph means…” It’s like you are the author and rewriting your own document. You don’t want to change anything other than condense it and reword it.

Rather than work yourself into a frenzy to create this academically important, but difficult, précis, contact EssayOnLiterature.com now for writing help and our academic writers will contact you for the exact specifications.
