In 1997, Charles Frazier’s debut novel Cold Mountain made publishing history when it sailed to the top of The New York Times best-seller list for sixty-one weeks, won numerous literary awards, including the National Book Award, and went on to sell over three million copies. Now, the beloved American epic returns, reissued by Grove Press to coincide with the publication of Frazier’s eagerly-anticipated second novel, Thirteen Moons. Sorely wounded and fatally disillusioned in the fighting at Petersburg, a Confederate soldier named Inman decides to walk back to his home in the Blue Ridge mountains to Ada, the woman he loves. His trek across the disintegrating South brings him into intimate and sometimes lethal converse with slaves and marauders, bounty hunters and witches, both helpful and malign. At the same time, the intrepid Ada is trying to revive her father’s derelict farm and learning to survive in a world where the old certainties have been swept away. As it interweaves their stories, Cold Mountain asserts itself as an authentic odyssey, hugely powerful, majestically lovely, and keenly moving.

In this first serious study of Hanshan (�Cold Mountain�), Paul Rouzer discusses some seventy poems of the iconic Chinese poet who lived sometime during the Tang dynasty (618�907). Hanshan�s poems gained a large readership in English-speaking countries following the publication of Jack Kerouac�s novel The Dharma Bums (1958) and Gary Snyder�s translations (which began to appear that same year), and they have been translated into English more than any other body of Chinese verse. Rouzer investigates how Buddhism defined the way that believers may have read Hanshan in premodern times. He proposes a Buddhist poetics as a counter-model to the Confucian assumptions of Chinese literary thought and examines how texts by Kerouac, Snyder, and Jane Hirshfield respond to the East Asian Buddhist tradition. �

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 1999 im Fachbereich Amerikanistik - Literatur, Note: 1,7, Universität Augsburg (Neuphiliolpgische Fakultät), Veranstaltung: PS: Strömungen und Tendenzen im amerikanischen Roman der Gegenwart, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Bürgerkrieg - eines der verbreitesten Themen in amerikanischen Romanen. Der Nord- Süd Konflikt entstand durch die Forderung des Südens ihre Unabhängigkeit, die Sklaverei und ihr eigenes Territorium zu erhalten. Der Norden stritt dagegen eher für eine Einheit der Nationen und erst später für die Abschaffung der Sklaverei. Die militärische Überlegenheit war eindeutig dem Norden zugeschrieben. Dreiundzwanzig nördliche Staaten standen elf Südlichen gegenüber. Trotzdem waren den Politikern des Nordens bewußt, daß nur wenn es ihnen gelang, ein konkretes politisches Konzept zu entwickeln, das die Wähler überzeugen und vor allem den Truppen den eigentlichen Sinn des Krieges verdeutlichen konnte, auch eine Aussicht auf Erfolg gegeben war. Somit wurde immer an die Loyalität und an den Patriotismus appelliert. 1865 kapitulierte die Armee der Südstaaten. Der amerikanische Bürgerkrieg war der erste moderne totale Krieg. Alle verfügbaren Reserven sowohl an Menschen, wie auch an Technologie wurden eingesetzt. Dieser Krieg stellt den verlustreichsten Krieg der amerikanischen Geschichte dar, mit über 600 000 Toten. In dieser Arbeit werde ich zuerst "The Red Badge of Courage" bearbeiten, dann näher auf "Cold Mountain" eingehen und zum Schluß die beiden Romane als Anti-Kriegsroman untersuchen. [...]

The first volume to reveal the post-production process of a major motion picture (Cold Mountain) edited entirely in Final Cut Pro! Offers a rare inside glimpse at the creative process of one of cinema's giants: threetime Academy Award-winning editor Walter Murch. Includes anecdotes from the director, edit staff, and producers; photos, emails, and journal entries from Murch; and behind-the-scenes insights. Accounts from Apple's Final Cut Pro team about what they think about the future of it in feature films. As the first software-only desktop nonlinear editing system, Final Cut Pro sat the film industry on its ear when it debuted back in 1999. Now it's shaking things up again as editor Walter Murch, director Anthony Minghella, and a long list of Hollywood heavy-hitters are proving that this under-$1,000 software can (and should) be used to edit a multi-million dollar motion picture! This book tells the story of that endeavor: the decision to use Final Cut Pro, the relationship between the technology and art (and craft) of movie-making, how Final Cut Pro was set up and configured for Cold Mountain, how the software's use affected the work flow, and its implications for the future of filmmaking. More than anything, however, this is Murch's own story of what seemed to many a crazy endeavor-- told through photos, journal entries, email musings, and anecdotes that give readers an inside view of what the film editor does and how this particular film progressed through post-production. The book includes, in his own words, Murch's vision, approach, and thoughts on storytelling as he shapes Cold Mountain under the intense pressures of completing a major studio film.

The incomparable poetry of Han Shan (Cold Mountain) and his sidekick Shih Te, the rebel poets who became icons of Chinese poetry and Zen, has long captured the imagination of poetry lovers and Zen aficionados. Popularized in the West by Beat Generation writers Gary Snyder and Jack Kerouac, these legendary T’ang era (618–907) figures are portrayed as the laughing, ragged pair who left their poetry on stones, trees, farmhouses, and the walls of the monasteries they visited. Their poetry expressed in the simplest verse but in a completely new tone, the voice of ordinary people. Here premier translator J. P. Seaton takes a fresh look at these captivating poets, along with Wang Fan-chih, another "outsider" poet who lived a couple centuries later and who captured the poverty and gritty day-to-day reality of the common people of his time. Seaton’s comprehensive introduction and notes throughout give a fascinating context to this vibrant collection.

This is an annotated English translation of the poetry of Han-shan (Cold Mountain), a 7th or 8th century Chinese Buddhist recluse who wrote many poems about his life alone in the hills. Many of his poems describe the mountains where he lived in dramatic, yet appealing terms, while at the same time symbolizing in Zen fashion the Buddhist quest for enlightenment. Han-shan became a cult figure in the Ch an/Zen tradition, and legends portray him and his companion Shih-te as eccentrics who said and did nonsensical things. Han-shan does often write on unusual topics with some of his poems being clever insights that just happen to be metric and rhymed. His language is simple and direct; his images and symbols fresh and bold. While the literary value of his work has for the most part been overlooked, this book provides line-by-line literary analysis of some of the more artistically interesting poems. Henricks work represents, therefore, a major contribution to the study of Chinese literature and Chinese religion."
