The Passive Vampire

Initially released in 1945 via Les Éditions de l'Oubli in Bucharest, The Passive Vampire stuck the eye of the French Surrealists while an excerpt seemed in 1947 within the journal los angeles half du sable. Luca, whose paintings was once well known through Gilles Deleuze, makes an attempt right here to transmit the "shudder" evoked by way of a few Surrealist texts, equivalent to André Breton's Nadja and Mad Love, probing with acerbic humor the delicate boundary among "objective chance" and delirium.


Stig Dagerman debuterade tjugotvå år gammal med romanen Ormen. Året var 1945 och den möttes av en förbluffad kritikerkår. "Så våldsamt övertygande har ingen svensk författare i detta sekel debuterat", skrev Olof Lagercrantz i DN.

Med sina egna ord, som blivit klassiska, beskrev Dagerman sitt förstlingsverk så här: "Författaren utför en undersökning över hur skräcken får en samling människor i sitt våld och hur de reagerar less than trycket, var och en efter sina egna förutsättningar. Den tes han vill fastslå är att det främst gäller att erkänna den primitiva urångesten; den får icke förnekas. Ett samliv med ångesten är den enda livsform som kan skänka människan åtminstone någon liten möjlighet att uppleva sig själv. "

Nu utges Ormen med ett nyskrivet förord av Siri Hustvedt.


«Estaba convencido de que morirse en primavera period un despropósito: el mundo ofrecía épocas más adecuadas para abandonarlo y sólo a un bohemio o a un anarquista se les podía ocurrir fallecer cuando todo en los angeles tierra empezaba a renacer; de tan asociales sujetos cabía esperar cualquier cosa, incluso que arrastrados por su perversidad fallecieran en señalados días de fiesta, el colmo, pues los días de fiesta estaban en los calendarios para celebrarlos con los angeles misa mayor, el concierto de l. a. banda municipal, el arroz con pollo comido en familia y l. a. corrida de toros, de haberla, y no para enlutarlos con un cadáver.

6, bcd is the radial shear zone with cd being an arc of a log spiral, and bde is a mixed shear zone in which the shear varies between the limits of radial and plane shears depending on the depth and roughness of the foundation. The plane be is called an equivalent free surface. The normal and shear stresses on plane be are po and so, respectively. 1) is taken at b. 7 d β Soil γ c ϕ Slip line fields for a rough continuous foundation. 8a). 8 Determination of Nq and Nc: (a) forces in the linear zone bde; (b) Mohr’s circle for stress conditions on zone bde.

J. N.  M. Dewaikar. 2014. Intl. J. Geotech. , 8(4): 372. 10 To that effect Vesic4 raised the issue that this type of assumption might help explain the differences between the theoretical and experimental results for long rectangular foundations; however, it does not help to interpret results of tests with square or circular foundations. Ko and Davidson25 also concluded that, when plane strain angles of internal friction are used in commonly accepted bearing capacity formulas, the bearing capacity for rough footings could be seriously overestimated for dense sands.

45 – φ/2 Modified failure surface in soil supporting a shallow foundation at ultimate Since Terzaghi’s founding work, numerous experimental studies to estimate the ultimate bearing capacity of shallow foundations have been conducted. Based on these studies, it appears that Terzaghi’s assumption of the failure surface in soil at ultimate load is essentially correct. 1) make with the horizontal is closer to 45 + ϕ/2 and not ϕ, as assumed by Terzaghi. 6. The method of superposition was used to obtain the bearing capacity factors Nc, Nq, and Nγ.
