Doing nothing : a history of loafers, loungers, slackers and bums in America / by Lutz, Tom.;
Includes bibliographical references (p. [321]-354) and index.Cody on the couch -- The idler and his works -- Loungers, romantics, and rip van winkle -- Loafers, communists, drinkers, and bohemians -- Nerve cases, saunterers, tramps, and flâneurs -- Sports, flappers, babbitts, and bums -- Beats, nonconformists, playboys, and delinquents -- Draft Dodgers, surfers, TV beatniks, and hippie communards -- Slackers."Couch potatoes, goof-offs, freeloaders, good-for-nothings, loafers, and loungers: ever since the Industrial Revolution, when the work ethic as we know it was formed, a chorus of slackers has held the pretensions of hardworking respectability up to scorn. Reviled by many, heroic to others, these layabouts stretch and yawn their way through life and literature while the rest of society sweats. Their history is the history of labor in negative. From Benjamin Franklin's "air baths" to Jack Kerouac's dharma bums to Generation X slackers and beyond, the case studies in Doing Nothing prove that anti-work ethic proponents have held a central but underrecognized place in modern culture." "Tom Lutz illuminates the changing place of leisure in America and, in doing so, shows us idleness (and work) in a new light."--Jacket.

Brave new world / [electronic resource]. by Huxley, Aldous.; York, Michael.;
Narrator: Michael York.Originally published in 1932, this outstanding work of literature is more crucial and relevant today than ever before. "One of the most prophetic dystopian works of the 20th century" -- Wall Street Journal Cloning, feel-good drugs, antiaging programs, and total social control through politics, programming, and media -- has Aldous Huxley accurately predicted our future? With a storyteller's genius, he weaves these ethical controversies in a compelling narrative that dawns in the year 632 AF (After Ford, the deity). When Lenina and Bernard visit a savage reservation, we experience how Utopia can destroy humanity. A powerful work of speculative fiction that has enthralled and terrified readers for generations, Brave New World is both a warning to be heeded and thought-provoking yet satisfying entertainment.Text Difficulty 3 - Text Difficulty 4UG/Upper grades (9th-12)7907.5Requires the Libby app or a modern web browser.

The Iliad / [electronic resource]. by Homer.; Page, Michael.;
Narrator: Michael Page.One of the foremost achievements in Western literature, Homer's Iliad tells the story of the darkest episode in the Trojan War. At its center is Achilles, the greatest warrior-champion of the Greeks, and his refusal to fight after being humiliated by his leader, Agamemnon. But when the Trojan Hector kills Achilles's close friend Patroclus, Achilles storms back into battle to take revenge-knowing full well that this will ensure his own early death. This tragic series of events is interwoven with powerfully moving descriptions of the ebb and flow of battle, of the domestic world inside Troy's besieged city of Ilium, and of the conflicts between the gods on Olympus as they argue over the fate of mortals. The Iliad is a work of extraordinary pathos and profundity that concerns itself with issues as fundamental as the meaning of life and death. Even the heroic ethic itself-with its emphasis on pride, honor, prowess in battle, and submission to the inexorable will of the gods-is not left unquestioned. This version of the Iliad is the translation by Alexander Pope.Text Difficulty 10 - Text Difficulty 121330Requires OverDrive Listen (file size: N/A KB) or OverDrive app (file size: 568175 KB).

The stories whiteness tells itself: racial myths and our American narratives [electronic resource]. by Mura, David.;
Uncovering the pernicious narratives white people create to justify white supremacy and sustain racist oppression The police murders of two Black men, Philando Castile and George Floyd, frame this searing exploration of the historical and fictional narratives that white America tells itself to justify and maintain white supremacy. From the country's founding through the summer of Black Lives Matter in 2020, David Mura unmasks how white stories about race attempt to erase the brutality of the past and underpin systemic racism in the present. Intertwining history, literature, ethics, and the deeply personal, Mura looks back to foundational narratives of white supremacy (Jefferson's defense of slavery, Lincoln's frequently minimized racism, and the establishment of Jim Crow) to show how white identity is based on shared belief in the pernicious myths, false histories, and racially segregated fictions that allow whites to deny their culpability in past atrocities and current inequities. White supremacy always insists white knowledge is superior to Black knowledge, Mura argues, and this belief dismisses the truths embodied in Black narratives. Mura turns to literature, comparing the white savior portrayal of the film Amistad to the novelization of its script by the Black novelist Alexs Pate, which focuses on its African protagonists; depictions of slavery in Faulkner and Morrison; and race's absence in the fiction of Jonathan Franzen and its inescapable presence in works by ZZ Packer, tracing the construction of Whiteness to willfully distorted portraits of race in America. In James Baldwin's essays, Mura finds a response to this racial distortion and a way for Blacks and other BIPOC people to heal from the wounds of racism. Taking readers beyond apology, contrition, or sadness, Mura attends to the persistent trauma racism has exacted and lays bare how deeply we need to change our racial narratives—what white people must do—to dissolve the myth of Whiteness and fully acknowledge the stories and experiences of Black Americans.Electronic reproduction.

Reimagining The Call to Teach brings to life an ethical approach to teaching that is informed by an understanding of teaching’s great purpose: to help the next generation forge a spirit of mutual care and concern while supporting each student’s distinctive way of being in the world. Hansen juxtaposes testimony from public school educators with ideas and examples drawn from philosophy, teacher education, research on teaching, literature, and other arts. He demonstrates that, despite pressing structural challenges in the educational system, teachers can bring their calling to life by supporting one another and by engaging in philosophical inquiry and self-cultivation. Rendered with Hansen’s customary eloquence, this dynamic book will be of interest to all who care about the dignity of teachers and teaching in our time. -- provided by publisher.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
