“Tracking the feminine principle in divination over three thousand years, this book ranges from the Oracle at Delphi to Japanese film of the 20th century. At the center of the study is an exploration of the psychic vantage point shared by various sisters of fate and the source from which their visions and prophecies are brought to the world of mortals. “The narrative weaves a timeline of time itself, summarizing cultural and scientific changes in the Western concept of time as a stage on which free will, memory, and action play out in foreseen and unforeseeable ways.” – Roger Dendinger, PhD, author of the Modern World Nations books, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Honduras and Scotland
'The Oversight is most dangerous when most reduced. There are many dead and gone who did not remember that.'

“On Beckett: Essays and Criticism” is the first collection of writings about the Nobel Prize–winning author that covers the entire spectrum of his work, and also affords a rare glimpse of the private Beckett. More has been written about Samuel Beckett than about any other writer of this century – countless books and articles dealing with him are in print, and the progression continues geometrically. “On Beckett” brings together some of the most perceptive writings from the vast amount of scrutiny that has been lavished on the man; in addition to widely read essays there are contributions from more obscure sources, viewpoints not frequently seen. Together they allow the reader to enter the world of a writer whose work has left an impact on the consciousness of our time perhaps unmatched by that of any other recent creative imagination.
