Ti-Jean and his Brothers was Derek Walcott's first venture into musical plays and is still his most popular work. A lilting St Lucian folk-tale, it tells the story of a poor family who dwell on the edge of a magical forest haunted by the devil's spirits. The brilliance of Walcott's writing draws us into the realms of fantasy where the actual and the miraculous collide. Dennis Scott's An Echo in the Bone is set during a traditional Nine-Night Ceremony held to honour the spirit of the dead. Shattering sequential time in a series of dreamlike episodes the play takes us back to the time of plantations and slavery - and the savage murder of the white estate owner. Who killed Mr. Charles? The answers lie deep in the racial memory, they 'echo in the bone'. The giddy atmosphere of carnival is the setting for Errol Hill's Man Better Man, a rumbustious, colourful comedy musical about stickfighters. With dance and song the battling troubadours and the calypsonian weave a tale of braver, superstition and fraudulence. When first performed the Times described it as 'a blazing electrifying feast of rhythm and colour'.

Fundamentos Del Leninismo, Los

Category: Political Science
Page: 140

"Los fundamentos del leninismo: el tema es vasto. Para agotarlo, haria falta un libro entero. Mas aun: haria falta toda una serie de libros. Por eso es natural que mis conferencias no puedan ser consideradas como una exposicion completa del leninismo. Seran tan solo, en el mejor de los casos, un resumen sucinto de los fundamentos del leninismo. No obstante, estimo util hacer este resumen, a fin de ofrecer algunos puntos fundamentales de partida, necesarios para estudiar con fruto el leninismo. Exponer los fundamentos del leninismo no es aun exponer los fundamentos de la concepcion del mundo de Lenin. La concepcion del mundo de Lenin y los fundamentos del leninismo no son, por su volumen, una y la misma cosa. Lenin es marxista, y la base de su concepcion del mundo es, naturalmente, el marxismo. Pero de esto no se desprende, en modo alguno, que la exposicion del leninismo deba comenzar por la de los fundamentos del marxismo. Exponer el leninismo es exponer lo que hay de peculiar y de nuevo en las obras de Lenin, lo aportado por Lenin al tesoro general del marxismo y lo que esta asociado a su nombre de modo natural. Solo en este sentido hablare en mis conferencias de los fundamentos del leninismo." --- Josef Stalin
