 Article Title :: In Search of the Great Australian Novel
 
What was the funniest novel of the 20th century? Christopher Hitchens recently pondered that question in the course of awarding the palm to Lucky Jim. I want to ask a more modest question. What is the funniest novel of the 21st century -- this brand-new, post-9/11 century that already shows so many promising signs of being even more fouled-up than the last? To anybody who has read A Dancing Bear, that vast and rowdy tale of love, post-modernity, serial murder and terrorism, the answer won't be in any doubt. Unfortunately almost nobody has read it. To date the book has only been published online. Its author, who variously calls himself Mark Osher, David Free an  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Charles Dickens - A Biography - English Literature
 
There is something about Charles Dickens' imaginative power that defies explanation in purely biographical terms. Nevertheless, his biography shows the source of that power and is the best place to begin to define it.The second child of John and Elizabeth Dickens, Charles was born on February 7, 1812, near Portsmouth on England's south coast. At that time John Dickens was stationed in Portsmouth as a clerk in the Navy Pay Office. The family was of lower-middle-class origins, John having come from servants and Elizabeth from minor bureaucrats. Dickens' father was vivacious and generous but had an unfortunate tendency to live beyond his means. his mother was affectionate and rather i  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Great Expectations - Charles Dickens - English Literature Essay
 
Charles Dickenn's Great Expectations is a story about a boy, Philip Pirrip, who comes to a point in his life where his life changes drastically from the way it was when he was growing up. Whenever this change occurs, he does his best not to let people know about his past life where he was just a common boy.

 Article Title :: Mermaid Mythology - Origins
 
I think that people who are unfamiliar with mermaid stories will be surprised by them. Most probably think that the mermaid is a passive, vulnerable creature like the mermaid in the movie "Splash". Nothing could be further from the truth. These are powerful beings with strong personalities. In various legends they cause storms, sink ships and drown the crews, cure illness, foretell the future and, of course, bewitch men.The origin of the mermaid reveals the source of their strength: they were goddesses – and important ones at that. In the oldest religions the creator god is usually a goddess. Later goddesses are often associated with fertility which is another form of the power o  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Coming Up: Sue Kenney and the Camino De Santiago: Pilgrim, Best-Selling Author & Workshop Designer
 
In October of last year I attended a presentation at the Spanish Centre in Toronto, entitled "Camino de Santiago", an event to which I had brought 6 of my friends who I throught would enjoy this topic. I enjoyed that evening very much and I was intrigued by the speaker, Sue Kenney, who is a very unusual individual. Sue has a very special, spiritual energy and her inner peace, strength and confidence radiate visibly. The event impressed me so much that I wrote about it in an earlier article.During the last few years, I had heard of the Camino de Santiago, Spain's most famous pilgrimage route, and although I am not formally religious, I found the idea of a month- long pilgrimage on f  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Coming Up - An Interview with Jerry Gain - European Tour Expert and Urban Visionary
 
Human connections are strange sometimes. Through a friend of a friend I heard about Jerry, who lives just about 5 minutes from me. I heard that, through his company A Perfect Tour, he runs specialized unique tours to places like Tuscany and Greece, and I also heard that he is involved in an initiative to revitalize Toronto's Waterfront, something that the citizens of Toronto have waited decades for to come to fruition.So I thought I'd track Jerry down to do an interview with him and sure enough, last week, he was able to squeeze in an hour long meeting with me in his packed appointment calendar.Jerry filled me in on the fact that through his job with Air Canada he got connec  (read full article)

One of the things I like to do on my website is shine the spotlight on regular people like you and me who have chosen to do something a little unusual with their time and who have managed to live a unique cross-cultural experience.So one of these special people is my friend Carol, a multi-talented highschool teacher, who, as I recently found out, is also an accomplished painter and pianist.During the mid-nineties Carol decided to take a few years off and she went off to Turkey to teach English and Mathematics in a school in Istanbul.
