A shocking exposé of the desperate subculture surrounding heroin addiction, William S. Burroughs' Junky is edited with an introduction by Oliver Harris in Penguin Modern Classics.Burroughs' first novel, a largely autobiographical account of the constant cycle of drug dependency, cures and relapses, remains the most unflinching, unsentimental account of addiction ever written. Through junk neighbourhoods in New York, New Orleans and Mexico City, through time spent kicking, time spent dealing and time rolling drunks for money, through junk sickness and a sanatorium, Junky is a field report (by a writer trained in anthropology at Harvard) from the American post-war drug underground. Nurtured into being by fellow Beat Generation guru Allen Ginsberg, Junky is a cult classic that has influenced generations of writers with its raw, sparse and unapologetic tone. This definitive edition painstakingly recreates the author's original text word for word.In work and in life, William S. Burroughs (1914-1997) expressed a constant subversion of the morality, politics and economics of modern America. To escape those conditions, and in particular his treatment as a homosexual and a drug-user, Burroughs left his homeland in 1950, and soon after began writing. By the time of his death he was widely recognised as one of the most politically trenchant, culturally influential, and innovative artists of the twentieth century. His numerous books include Naked Lunch, Junky, Queer, Nova Express, Interzone, The Wild Boys, The Ticket That Exploded and The Soft Machine.If you enjoyed Junky, you might like Burroughs' Exterminator!, also available in Penguin Modern Classics.'Reads today as fresh and unvarnished as it ever has'Will Self

Phonetic Elements in Japanese Characters
28,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Reading original Japanese texts and the use of Japanese dictionaries can be quite time-consuming, especially because Japanese characters generally have one or more Chinese (on) readings (derived from the original Chinese characters and its reading) and native Japanese (kun) readings. Many Japanese characters contain a sound-indicating part ( a 'phonetic element') which is helpful in determining the Chinese (on) reading. A good knowledge of a selection of phonetic elements in Japanese characters will enable the student of Japanese as a second language to easier memorise and recognise the Chinese (on) reading of a character and to more quickly use (electronic) dictionaries. This will make the 'jump' from reading textbooks to reading original Japanese texts easier. This book provides the user with a selection of 349 phonetic elements with example characters to illustrate the phonetic element. In addition, the book provides for each phonetic element, if available, a reference to such phonetic element in the Japanese-English Nelson dictionary, the Chinese-English Mathews dictionary and the list of Chinese phonetic elements in Chinese characters compiled by W E Soothill in 1914. These references will make the book useful for students and scholars who have an interest in Japanese phonology and the process by which the readings of Chinese characters were adapted to the Japanese phonetic system.
