Muži mi to vysvetlia


Vo svojej komickej, ostrej eseji s názvom Muži mi to vysvetlia pomenúva Rebecca Solnit častý problém rozhovorov medzi mužmi a ženami. Píše o mužoch, ktorí mylne predpokladajú, že niečo vedia a ženy to nevedia; píše o tom, kde táto domnienka pramení a ako funguje v praxi.V knihe je okrem tejto, dnes už známej, eseje šesť ďalších vrátane zamyslenia nad spôsobom, akým spisovateľka Virginia Woolf prijala tajomstvo, nevedomosť, pochybnosť a dvojznačnosť; originálne skúmanie rovnosti v manželstve a desivé zhrnutie rozsahu násilia páchaného na ženách.Rebecca Solnit svojím čitateľsky prístupným štýlom dokazuje, že je jednou z najvplyvnejších mysliteliek feministického hnutia. Muži mi to stále vysvetľujú. A žiaden z nich sa mi nikdy neospravedlnil za to, že mi nesprávne vysvetľoval niečo, čo poznám, ale on nie.Rebecca Solnit je novinárka a historička. Je autorkou takmer dvadsiatich kníh venovaných feminizmu, dejinám západných a pôvodných kultúr, spoločenskej zmene, horskej turistike a chodeniu, nádeji a katastrofe. Pravidelne prispieva do časopisu Harpers, London Review of Books a Los Angeles Times. Žije v San Franciscu.

Sprievodca strácaním sa


Čítanie o potulkách strácaní sa a rôznych využitiach neznáma od autorky knihy Muži mi to vysvetlia.Zbierka autobiografických esejí Sprievodca strácaním sa vychádza z príznačných momentov a vzťahov v autorkinom živote, na základe ktorých skúma témy neistoty, dôvery, straty, pamäti, túžby a miesta. Rebecca Solnit sa zaujíma o príbehy, pomocou ktorých sa orientujeme vo svete, a miesta od divočiny po mestá, ktorými prechádzame, keď sami seba nachádzame alebo strácame. Jej rozprávanie je hlboko osobné, no prepojené so všeobecnejšími príbehmi od zajateckej prózy amerických novousadlíkov po využívanie modrej na renesančných obrazoch, nehovoriac o stretnutiach s korytnačkami, mníchmi, punkerkami, horami, púšťami a filmom Vertigo. Výsledkom je osobitá, inšpirujúca cesta objavov.

Wanderlust : A History of Walking


What does it mean to be out walking in the world, whether in a landscape or a metropolis, on a pilgrimage or a protest march? In this first general history of walking, Rebecca Solnit draws together many histories to create a range of possibilities for this most basic act. Arguing that walking as history means walking for pleasure and for political, aesthetic, and social meaning, Solnit homes in on the walkers whose everyday and extreme acts have shaped our culture, from the peripatetic philosophers of ancient Greece to the poets of the Romantic Age, from the perambulations of the Surrealists to the ascents of mountaineers. With profiles of some of the most significant walkers in history and fiction - from Wordsworth to Gary Snyder, from Rousseau to Argentina's Mother of the Plaza de Mayo, from Jane Austen's Elizabeth Bennet to Andre Breton's Nadja - Wanderlust offers a provocative and profound examination of the interplay between the body, the imagination, and the world around the walker.

Nonstop Metropolis


"The maps themselves are things of beauty...a document of its time, of our time." -Sadie Stein, New York Times "One is invited to fathom the many New Yorks hidden from history's eye...thoroughly terrific." -Maria Popova, Brain Pickings Nonstop Metropolis, the culminating volume in a trilogy of atlases, conveys innumerable unbound experiences of New York City through twenty-six imaginative maps and informative essays. Bringing together the insights of dozens of experts-from linguists to music historians, ethnographers, urbanists, and environmental journalists-amplified by cartographers, artists, and photographers, it explores all five boroughs of New York City and parts of nearby New Jersey. We are invited to travel through Manhattan's playgrounds, from polyglot Queens to many-faceted Brooklyn, and from the resilient Bronx to the mystical kung fu hip-hop mecca of Staten Island. The contributors to this exquisitely designed and gorgeously illustrated volume celebrate New York City's unique vitality, its incubation of the avant-garde, and its literary history, but they also critique its racial and economic inequality, environmental impact, and erasure of its past. Nonstop Metropolis allows us to excavate New York's buried layers, to scrutinize its political heft, and to discover the unexpected in one of the most iconic cities in the world. It is both a challenge and homage to how New Yorkers think of their city, and how the world sees this capital of capitalism, culture, immigration, and more.
