Plot Summary:
REVISED EDITION - In Capti , Stephen Berard weaves a multicultural, particolored, sometimes surreal and often hilarious tapestry of satire, magic realism, myth, science, and poetry that causes the reader to pinch himself, asking if he can actually be reading something like this in Latin. The central character is a highly functional autistic Seattle ballet dancer, Woody Fava, who speaks in verse and who uses chromoptic therapy in the form of colored eyeglasses to help himself make sense of his world. In search of the Goddess, whom he is sure has recently moved into a condo somewhere in Seattle, Woody quits his ballet job, quickly impoverishes himself, and has a series of disturbing misadventures, until finally disappearing...only to reemerge in Los Angeles at the center of a bizarre murder mystery. But this is only part of the story since Woody’s life is reflected and refracted into a thousand other tales – yes, hints of Scheherazade! – lived out in other times and other contexts.

Libri epitome:
In pictura textili sua, fabula hac Capti titulo inscripta, Stephanus Berard multas gentes, multicolores imagines, saturam nunc festivam nunc “suprarealem,” “realismum magicum,” mythos, philosophiam naturalem, poesiam ita affabre contexit ut lector, quasi in somno versans se vellicare velit, num talia re vera Latine legat se rogans. Persona principalis est ballator nomine Vudius Fava, quamvis autisticus nihilominus vitae sat bene agendae capax, qui nihil nisi versus poeticos effatur necnon ocularibus coloratis chromopticae therapiae causa utitur quo melius mundum suum mente comprehendere valeat. Deam quaerens, quam alicubi Seattli diaetam nuper occupasse pro comperto habet, munus ballematicum relinquit seque ipsum in paupertatem redigit. Post ambages iniucundas aliquot Vudius tandem e conspectu abit...donec Angelopoli aliquando iterum dispicitur, medio scilicet in dramate insolitissimo de caedibus vigilibusque. Haec autem fabulae tantum parva pars; nam Vudii vita – non sine Scheherazadae afflatu – in sescentas alias aliis temporibus diversisque sub condicionibus actas identidem repercutitur refrangiturque.

Biografía del autor:

Stephen A. Berard, PhD, was born in Boston, grew up in the Los Angeles area, and now lives in Washington state, where he teaches German, Latin, and Spanish at Wenatchee Valley College. In 1998, he was converted to the active use and teaching of Latin or to what was then called "Living Latin" Since 2000, except for book reviews, Stephanus has been publishing only in Latin. Among his Latin works are Capti, a modern Latin novel, and a monograph titled De Theoria Casuum Generativa deque Methodo Philologica "Generative Case Theory and Philological Method" and De Philosophia Quantali Deque Institutione Publica "Quantum Physics and Public Education" both published by the Melissa Foundation of Brussels. Stephen enjoys languages, poetry, literary fantasy, science fiction, ballet, classical music, classic film, mountain hiking, quantum physics, and Buddhism. Note: "Stephanus" is the Latin name for "Stephen" in the nominative/subject case. "Stephani" is the genitive/possessive case and means "of" or "by" Stephen; (i.e. the novel Capti is by Stephen Berard). Latine: Stephanus A. Berard, Ph.D. natus est Bostoniae, Angelopoli adolevit, nunc in civitate Vasintoniensi habitat ubi professoris cathedram occupans linguas Hispanicam Latinam Theodiscam docet. Anno MIIM ad linguae Latinae usum "vivum" est conversus; inde ab anno MM, praeter librorum recensiones, nihil iam nisi Latino sermone exaratum divulgat. Inter scripta Latina eius est monographia una, De Theoria Casuum Generativa deque Methodo Philologica, necnon et liber cui est titulus De Philosophia Quantali Deque Institutione Publica, quorum operum ambo edidit Fundatio Melissa Bruxellensis. Stephanus fruitur linguis, poesia, scriptis phantasticis litteratis, scientia ficticia, arte ballematica, modis musicis classicis, pelliculis vestustis, montium perlustrationibus, scientia physica quantali, Buddhismo.

Descripción Authorhouse. Paperback. Condición: New. 642 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 1.7in.Plot Summary In Capti, Stephen Berard weaves a multicultural, particolored, sometimes surreal and often hilarious tapestry of satire, magic realism, myth, science, and poetry that causes the reader to pinch himself, asking if he can actually be reading something like this in Latin. The central character is a highly functional autistic Seattle ballet dancer, Woody Fava, who speaks in verse and who uses chromoptic therapy in the form of colored eyeglasses to help himself make sense of his world. In search of the Goddess, whom he is sure has recently moved into a condo somewhere in Seattle, Woody quits his ballet job, quickly impoverishes himself, and has a series of disturbing misadventures, until finally disappearing. . . only to reemerge in Los Angeles at the center of a bizarre murder mystery. But this is only part of the story since Woodys life is reflected and refracted into a thousand other tales - yes, hints of Scheherazade! - lived out in other times and other contexts. Stephen Berards Menippean Fable (the first in a planned heptology) is based in a very loose and often ironic way on two tales by the German romantic author E. T. A. Hoffmann: Prinzessin BrambillaandDas Frulein von Scuderi. While it is not necessary for the reader ofCaptito be familiar with these tales, there are a few jokes that will escape those who have not read the Hoffmann works. Very generally, it can be said that the author mixes old with new. He superimposes thoroughly modern themes and thought patterns on ancient literary genres and styles. Berards hexameters emulate Juvenal, Lucan, and Lucretius. In the prose portions of the first chapter he often uses long, involved, sometimes misshapen sentences of a somewhat Apuleian sort in order to reflect the characters emotions, confusions, and a generally rather Fellini-esque sort of exuberance. The style, however, varies from passage to passage. The poetic verse forms evolve gradually from hexameters to medieval meters to modern blank verse. . . which in turn is meant to represent changes in, or the outright dissolution of, the world of the various protagonists as well as providing a pleasant lesson in modern poetics for those wanting one. Although Berard has chosen an ancient literary form called theMenippean Fable, he has derived many of his compositional principles from Hoffmann himself, the inventor of fantastic realism and great-grandfather of the now popular magic realism. In magic realism--among whose principal exponents have been Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Miguel Angel Asturias, Jorge Luis Borges, Richard Brautigan, William Burroughs, Italo Calvino, Carlos Fuentes, and Virginia Woolf--a given story will normally seem realistic, although here and there, just under the surface of things, some kind of magic is at work. In Hoffmanns earlier fantastic realism, however, which Berard is cultivating in this book and will continue in the following ones, realism alternates with utmost fantasy, and it is the job of the reader to establish the connections between these two modes. TheSphinx Heptologywill carry with it the message of quantum holism. In telling his amusing stories, Berard is endeavoring to propagate that famous notion, repeatedly confirmed by physics experimentation, that each so-called part of the universe is simultaneously both the part and the whole, that everything in the cosmos is directly linked with everything else at the quantum level, and that things happening here are expressed one way or another in all places, that indeed, due to the proven phenomenon of quantum non-locality, the idea of separate places is an illusion. . . or, when seen in their wholeness, they are parts of a virtual hologram whose information is contained in no space. Berard has found fantastic realism, of all literary styles, to be the most appropriate for conveying th This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN.
