It seemed as if the princes and princess would never know of their noble birth as they lived their lives quietly in their beautiful home, far away from the bustle and intrigue of the court. But the fates intervened. An Arabian Nights story of full of magic and mystique, jealousy, bravery and love. Urged by a travelling pilgrim, two brothers set out to find a talking bird, a singing tree and a never-ending fountain. When their sister learns that they have failed and are in danger, she sets out dressed as a man, conquers the mountain of black stone, rescues her brothers and obtains the bird, the tree, and the fountain. Elaborately illustrated with intricate detail, the rich colours bring to life the lyrical language of this intriguing tale with a happy twist to its conclusion.
A Spiritual Bloomsbury is an exploration of how three English writers-Edward Carpenter, E.M. Forster, and Christopher Isherwood-sought to come to terms with their homosexuality by engagement with Hinduism. Copley reveals how these writers came to terms with their inner conflicts and were led in the direction of Hinduism by friendship or the influence of gurus. Tackling the themes of the guru-disciple relationship, their quarrel with Christianity, relationships with their mothers and the problematic feminine, the tensions between sexuality and society, and the attraction of Hindu mysticism; this fascinating work seeks to reveal whether Hinduism offered the answers and fulfillment these writers ultimately sought. Also included is a diary narrating Copley's quest to track down Carpenter's and Isherwood's Vendantism and Forster's Krishna cult on a journey to India.
