London, Cup. Although the book wears its didacticism rather heavily for modern tastes, it was hugely successful in its time.

Hayden Oneworld Publications, , awaiting shelfmark. Sphinx is the first novel by a woman member of Oulipo to be translated into English. The mother, a doctor, is banished for political reasons to rural Latvia and takes her daughter with her. Uprooted and separated from her loving grandparents, in a reversal of roles, the daughter cares for her psychologically damaged and suicidal mother. This novel by one of the most prominent and influential prose writers in Latvia not only explores the mother-daughter relationship under-represented in literature, according to Ikstena but also gives a powerful voice to women living under - and coping with - an oppressive regime.
It is seamlessly translated from Latvian by translator and poet Margita Gailitis. The Spanish Civil War has greatly impoverished her relatives and created a nightmarish household of conflict, domestic abuse and religious bigotry. Practical guidance on points and lines from Ein gute Ordnung.
There are also models of scripts using prayers, Biblical quotations and educational maxims. Most are in German hands, although there are some samples of Roman and italic lettering. There are large and elaborate capitals, and texts in script almost too tiny to read, practical scripts for everyday work and decorative ones for special occasions.

The term Bauhaus evokes functionality, social utopia, maybe even novel pedagogical thinking, but this is often associated with its role as a school of design.
Kandinsky was a key influence on Lothar Schreyer, pioneer of expressionist theatre, who, according to David F. Its publication triggered Walter Gropius to invite Schreyer to the Bauhaus, where he led the stage workshop between and Likewise, Grunow encouraged rhythmic breathing and a response to colours through movement. That stage art privileged performance over print, synesthetic experience over dialogue. Whereas the usual term refers to a piece, the new term draws attention to the mobility of the text through Gang path, walk, derived from the verb gehen , to walk or go.
Schreyer only rarely allowed outsiders into performances and practically no reviews. The text is evocative rather than wholly readable.
It works in connection with the representation of movement, figures as coloured forms , and sound. On one level, Kreuzigung acts as a representation of performance but, on another, it points to the impossibility of that very representation. It is at once readable by all and penetrable only by the initiated.
The system is unpacked on the following page. Three levels are represented on a stave: word sequence, tone sequence and movement sequence. A zigzag line on the tone sequence denotes pitch based on its position and on the yellow high or blue low lines. The bracket symbols refer to volume and the target signs to pauses in both sound and movement. Words are stretched and contracted as appropriate to the bar by way of the woodcut text.
It evokes a post-war apocalypse, around which man wanders wounded in the company of two female characters in the conventional guises of mother and mistress, ultimately seeking escape through spiritual transcendence. Ultimately, while salvation is demanded, it does not arrive, as the figures are left to call for the world to wake, to realize itself beyond the material desperation. Yet, Kreuzigung is not just the representation of some failed transcendence; that would neglect the formal purity of a project less concerned with content.
Spiritual transcendence is a process entered into in the performance and experience of such universal stage art. Flames break at midnight.
