Oceanic Consciousness in the Romantic Century

Author: Howard F. Isham

Publisher: Peter Lang

ISBN: 9780820467276

This book explores the unprecedented surge or oceanic feeling in the aesthetic expression of the romantic century. As secular thought began to displace the certainties of a sacral universe, the oceans that give life to our planet offered a symbol of eternity, rooted in the experience of nature rather than Biblical tradition. Images of the sea permeated the minds of the early Romantics, became a significant ingredient of romantic expression, and continued to emerge in the language, literature, art, and music of the nineteenth century. These pages document the evidence for this oceanic consciousness in some of the most creative minds of that century.

Out of the Night Out of the stillness of the night Came the sound of the night bird’s trill It came through the window loud and clear From the brow of the distant hill. As I lay there and listened To his melodious call The answering trill came in on the wind Faintly, barely heard at all. ‘Twas a glorious thing of joy to hear Such beauty out of sight It made me know that God was there In the stillness of the night.

“Phantoms is gruesome and unrelenting…It’s well realized, intelligent, and humane.”—Stephen King They found the town silent, apparently abandoned. Then they found the first body, strangely swollen and still warm. One hundred fifty were dead, 350 missing. But the terror had only begun in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, California. At first they thought it was the work of a maniac. Or terrorists. Or toxic contamination. Or a bizarre new disease. But then they found the truth. And they saw it in the flesh. And it was worse than anything any of them had ever imagined...

The mysterious existence called life after death that lurks waiting beyond the reef that all humankind must eventually cross sometimes may encroach onto the mortal shores that humans inhabit and adjust events that weak mortals have misused. Tales told by sailors seems to indicate that strange eerie powers cross this reef in reverse and make adjustments that are beyond the power of mortal humans to change. The legends told by seafaring men are filled with such mysterious tales such as the legend of the Flying Dutchman and others. The battle of the North Atlantic was a generator of such events and is the stage for this tale about restless ghosts.

A Storm In The Blood

Published to coincide with the centenary of the Houndsditch Murders in December 2010, A Storm in the Blood tells the story of the Latvian revolutionaries who killed three officers of the Metropolitan Police. The parallel between the suicide ideologues of the time and contemporary terrorists, willing to die for their ideals, is all too clear. One of the most sensational crimes of the era, the murders were followed by the `Siege of Sidney Street', a gunfight that saw then-Home Secretary Winston Churchill sending troops into the streets of London. A siege and shoot-out in Sherlock Holmes' London after an anarchist robbery gone wrong foreshadows Jerusalem 1947, Manhattan 2001, and Baghdad today. A Storm in the Blood slams home the revolutionary realities of lust, violence, anger and appetite. 'Jon Stephen Fink is the Tarantino of Terrorism.' --John Baxter, Author of the biographies "Kubrick", "George Lucas" and many others
