“A revelation.” — Angela Duckworth “Enlightening.” — Steven Pinker “Fascinating.” — Daniel H. Pink “Insightful and engaging.” — Daniel Gilbert “Stopped me in my tracks.” — Adam Grant “An intriguing new way to think about a complicated emotion.” — New York Why did Paul Gauguin abandon middle-class life to follow the path of a starving artist? What explains the massive success of Steve Jobs, a man with great ideas but weak programming skills and a questionable managerial style? How did Dean Karnazes—the famed “Ultramarathon Man”—transform himself from a directionless desk jockey into an extreme athlete who once ran fifty marathons in fifty days? As the renowned emotion researcher Jessica Tracy reveals, each of these superachievers has been motivated by an often maligned emotion: pride. Its dark, hubristic side is well known, but Tracy shows that pride is also essential for helping us become our best, brightest selves. It makes us strive for excellence. In the right doses and the right contexts, it has been proven to boost creativity, motivate altruism, and confer power and prestige on those who display it. In Pride, Tracy explains how we can make this double-edged emotion serve us—rather than the other way around. “A must-read for anyone pursuing noteworthy goals.” — Publishers Weekly Previously published in hardcover as TAKE PRIDE.

Language in Late Capitalism

Pride and Profit

Author: Alexandre Duchêne,Monica Heller

Publisher: Routledge

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

This book examines the ways in which our ideas about language and identity which used to be framed in national and political terms as a matter of rights and citizenship are increasingly recast in economic terms as a matter of added value. It argues that this discursive shift is connected to specific characteristics of the globalized new economy in what can be thought of as "late capitalism". Through ten ethnographic case studies, it demonstrates the complex ways in which older nationalist ideologies which invest language with value as a source of pride get bound up with newer neoliberal ideologies which invest language with value as a source of profit. The complex interaction between these modes of mobilizing linguistic resources challenges some of our ideas about globalization, hinting that we are in a period of intensification of modernity, in which the limits of the nation-State are stretched, but not (yet) undone. At the same time, this book argues, this intensification also calls into question modernist ways of looking at language and identity, requiring a more serious engagement with capitalism and how it constitutes symbolic (including linguistic) as well as material markets.

Elizabeth Bennet is Austen’s most liberated and unambiguously appealing heroine, and Pride and Prejudice has remained over most of the past two centuries Austen’s most popular novel. The story turns on the marriage prospects of the five daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet: Elizabeth forms a prejudice against the proud and distant Mr. Darcy; Darcy’s charming friend Charles Bingley falls in love with her sister Jane; and the handsome officer George Wickham forms attachments successively to Elizabeth and to her sister Lydia. Irvine’s extensive introduction sets the novel in the context of the literary and intellectual history of the period, and deals with such crucial background issues as early-nineteenth century class relations in Britain, and female exclusion from property and power. The appendices present an unrivaled selection of background contextual documents.

Jams Austen (1775-1817)Jane Austen Has Been Regarded By Critics As The Moot Perfect Artist In English Fiction. George Saintsbury Compared Her To Shakespeare Whose Detachment And Elusiveness She Certainly Shares. She Was A Truly Great Novelist Of Manners Among The Country Gentry. Born In The Family Of A Rector Of Steventon In Hampshire, Jane Austen Had Her Early Education In Oxford And Reading. She Started Writing Early In Life. Between 1792 And 1798 She Completed Her First Four Novels, Lady Susan, First Impressions (Later Entitled Pride And Prejudice), Elinor And Marianne (Later Called Sense And Sensibility) And Northanger Abbey. Later She Produced Three More Novels: Mansfield Park, Emma And Persuasion. She Contracted Tuberculosis And Died Tragically Early At The Age Of 41. Although Not Recognized In Her Time, Her Popularity Has Increased, Rather Than Faded, With The Passing Of Years, Which Will Be Evident From The Remark Of F.R. Leavis: Jane Austen Inaugurated The Great Tradition Of Fiction. Pride And Prejudice Was Jane Austen S First Novel. She Started Writing It In 1797 Under The Title First Impressions. Later She Revised It And It Was Published In 1813 Under The Title Pride And Prejudice. It Is A Novel Mainly Concerned With The Problems Of Marriage. Four Pairs, Elizabeth And Darcy, Jane And Bingley, Charlotte And Collins, Lydia And Wickham Are Married On Different Considerations. The Main 3Tory Concerns The First Pair Who Are First Separated Because Of Their Pride And Prejudice And Later Reconciled And United As Their Misunderstandings Are Removed. This Novel Has Been Accepted As The Masterpiece Of The Novelist Having A Superbly Balanced Plot-Construction And A Well-Defined Character Development. Jane Austen Here Succeeded In Wedding Realism To A Lively Dialogue And Evolved A Witty Narrative Style To Express In The Most Vital Manner The Story Of A Young Girl And Her Love.
