This is the unexpected and unusual premise of Jane Brox’s Silence She recreates the history of prisons in England and America and puts the reader in the place of a prisoner to feel the punishment – endless years of it Then she crosses over to Christian monasteries showing why they exist at all how they spread and the extra severe burden placed on women in their own monasteries US prisons were designed to be hellish Prisoners were hooded on their way in so they could not know where they were or the layout of the building They stayed in their tiny cells with little or no light and nothing to read but the bible Rehabilitation was a 20th century notion all but abandoned today as private sector prisons use inmates as slave labor and have deals with their states to maintain them at least 90% full So it is in the interest of both state and

    PDF gamegeek denter.de å Silence MOBI À silence epub, Silence ePUBThis is a peculiar bookIt's well written and carefully researched Brox presents her readers with a nuanced exploration of the role of silence in both culture and the formation of the self Her writing plays out against the reality of the loss of silence in our chattering roaring distracted culture I picked it up because it seemed a natural follow on to my recent reading of Barbara Brown Taylor's wonderful writings about darknessThough I liked much of it the book also frustrates just a little because it seems not to go anywhere We look at monastic life and then we look at solitary confinement in prisons and then back to monastic life and then back to prisons and on and on Silence is isolating
