A hilarious, thoughtful, and in-depth exploration of the pleasures and perils of modern romance from one of this generation's most popular and sharpest comedic voices At some point, every one of us embarks on a journey to find love. We meet people, date, get into and out of relationships, all with the hope of finding someone with whom we share a deep connection. This seems standard now, but it's wildly different from what people did even just decades ago. Single people today have more romantic options than at any point in human history. With technology, our abilities to connect with and sort through these options are staggering. So why are so many people frustrated? Some of our problems are unique to our time. "Why did this guy just text me an emoji of a pizza?" "Should I go out with this girl even though she listed Combos as one of her favorite snack foods? Combos?!" "My girlfriend just got a message from some dude named Nathan. Who's Nathan? Did he just send her a photo of his penis? Should I check just to be sure?" But the transformation of our romantic lives can't be explained by technology alone. In a short period of time, the whole culture of finding love has changed dramatically. A few decades ago, people would find a decent person who lived in their neighbourhood. Their families would meet and, after deciding neither party seemed like a murderer, they would get married and soon have a kid, all by the time they were twenty-four. Today, people marry later than ever and spend years of their lives on a quest to find the perfect person, a soul mate. For years, Aziz Ansari has been aiming his comic insight at modern romance, but forModern Romance, the book, he decided he needed to take things to another level. He teamed up with NYU sociologist Eric Klinenberg and designed a massive research project, including hundreds of interviews and focus groups conducted everywhere from Tokyo to Buenos Aires to Wichita. They analysed behavioural data and surveys and created their own online research forum on Reddit, which drew thousands of messages. They enlisted the world's leading social scientists, including Eli Finkel, Helen Fisher, Sheena Iyengar, Barry Schwartz, Sherry Turkle, and Robb Willer. The result is unlike any social science or humour book we've seen before. In Modern Romance, Ansari combines his irreverent humour with cutting-edge social science to give us an unforgettable tour of our new romantic world.

This collection recovers the continuities between three forms of romance that have often been separated from one another in critical discourse: early modern prose fiction, the dramatic romances staged in England during the 1570s and 1580s, and Shakespeare’s late plays. Although Pericles, Cymbeline, Winter’s Tale, and The Tempest have long been characterized as "romances," their connections with the popular prose romances of their day and the dramatic romances that preceded them have frequently been overlooked. Constructed to explore those connections, this volume includes original essays that relate at least one prose or dramatic romance to an English play written from 1570 to 1630. The introduction explores the use of the term "dramatic romance" over several centuries and the commercial association between print culture, gender, and drama. Eight essays discuss Shakespeare’s plays; three more examine plays by Beaumont, Fletcher, and Massinger. Other authors treated at some length include Boccaccio, Christine de Pizan, Chaucer, Sidney, Greene, Lodge, and Wroth. Barbara Mowat’s afterword considers Shakespeare’s use of Greek romance. Written by foremost scholars of Shakespeare and early modern prose fiction, this book explores the vital cross-currents that occurred between narrative and dramatic forms of Greek, medieval, and early modern romance.

Modern Romance: by Aziz Ansari and Eric Klinenberg | Key Takeaways, Analysis & Review Preview: Modern Romance is a nonfiction book by the comedian Aziz Ansari and New York University sociologist Eric Klinenberg. For years, Ansari has been doing comedy on the absurdities of dating, recounting both tales from his own life and other people’s. Eventually, the strangeness of modern dating was just too much to handle. He never understood why that girl did not respond to his perfectly crafted text message. He saw the bubbles indicating a response and then, nothing. It made him question his behavior and whether technology has changed the way people date. He decided to take things to the next level, and study modern romance through focus groups and rigorous social science. The result combines humor and true insight into this mixed-up world where a person can swipe right to begin a romance and end a relationship via text message… PLEASE NOTE: This is Key Takeaways, Analysis & Review of the book and NOT the original book.

Evelyn Ricott had every reason to be proud of her achievements in life. From a run down pit village to Professor of Cryptology at Scotland’s most prestigious university was a long road. Success and the status and wealth it brought her had been hard earned so Evelyn didn’t react kindly when the threat of losing it all came along. In an age when every publicity hungry celebrity postures about breaking the internet Evelyn’s work on artificial intelligence has the potential to do just that, if it came into the wrong hands. So rumours of a tie in to a notorious crime syndicate are enough to start a train of events that spirals her life into chaos. Not helped by the presence of Alec Traquair. Young, handsome and aristocratic, Alec carries a sense of entitlement you could cut with a knife. No attempt at an egalitarian veneer would have deceived Evelyn but Alec doesn’t even try. Yet as the fabric of her life comes apart Evelyn needs someone she can trust and Alec has the potential to be a memorable ally. Through a terrifying adventure that takes her from Duomo di Milano to the rugged countryside of Scotland’s wild Hebrides Alec is resolute, resourceful and ruthless. Yet Evelyn can’t bring herself to trust him: too many unexplained coincidences and too much at stake for her to lower her guard. Let alone admit the depth of the feelings she has for him. A caution that turns out to be justified for there is far more to Alec than he has vouchsafed to Evelyn.

In the last few years a lively discussion on information packaging has arisen, where traditional dichotomies Theme/Rheme, Topic/Comment and Focus/Background have been taken up again and partly reinterpreted. The discussion is mainly being held in syntax, but also in the fields of semantics and pragmatics. Some remarkable progress has been made especially in Focus phonology. Even if the role of information conveying and information packaging in the Indoeuropean languages was hinted at as early as in the classical studies of the Neogrammarians, this field has remained neglected in today's historical linguistics. This volume tries to partly cover this lack with a sample of papers which offer a various range of new empirical data analyzed from the point of view of information structure. The novelty of the papers consists in the modern theoretical perspective from which the data are analyzed and in the various phenomena considered, which range from the rise of clitic elements to word order change and verb movement.

The essays collected here illustrate aspects of recent research conducted by graduate students in Canadian studies at various European universities. The methodological diversity displayed points to the very essence of the culture the contributors explore - what has been commonly termed the Canadian mosaic or, more recently, the Canadian kaleidoscope (Janice Kulyk-Keefer). In analysing the many facets of this mosaic, the numerous images of this kaleidoscope, the contributors offer fresh and youthful reappraisals of traditional visions of Canadianness.

The series is a platform for contributions of all kinds to this rapidly developing field. General problems are studied from the perspective of individual languages, language families, language groups, or language samples. Conclusions are the result of a deepened study of empirical data. Special emphasis is given to little-known languages, whose analysis may shed new light on long-standing problems in general linguistics.
