The Swimmer is one of the very first literary sports novels. Although not a competitive swimmer himself, Mackay was a passionate swimmer and well acquainted with the scene of competitive swimming and diving in Berlin around 1900. This historical picture of the sports world at that time will be familiar to today´s readers in many ways, but may surprise us in its details, for example, of competitions no longer widely practiced, such as "diving for plates" and "swimming with obstacles." For this reason it is a valuable historical document. It is also an exciting sports story with "the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat." But The Swimmer is much more: it is a fascinating psychological study of the rise and fall of a champion swimmer in his single-minded pursuit of his sport - and fame. Mackay´s protagonist Franz Felder was "born to swim" and we follow his first, happy dip into the water to his last, fatal plunge. All attention is on young Felder, but other characters are clearly delineated: his wise coach, the equally single-minded sculptor, the seductress from the international demi-monde - last, and alas least, the loyal, devoted fan. The story is told with insight and compassion, as Mackay, the "omniscient narrator," looks into the deepest feelings and motives of his protagonist, whom Mackay´s biographer has described as "an enchanted beast of the fairy tale books, under whose rough exterior is hidden a prince"-a price who "never found the charm that would have brought out his true character." Mackay makes all of this come alive for us, so that we sympathize with Felder even as we perceive the flaws that bring about his downfall. The book can be read on several levels: as a historical document, a thrilling sports story, a human drama. In every case, it is a good read.

A searching new collection from America’s philosopher-poet John Koethe, in his tenth volume of poetry, investigates the capricious nature of everyday life, “the late-night jazz, great sex and all / The human shit defining what we are.” His poems—always dynamic and in process, never static or complete—luxuriate in the questions that punctuate the most humdrum of routines, rendering a robust portrait of an individual: complicated, quotidian, and resounding with truth. The Swimmer argues that this “energizes everything”: life’s trivialities, surprises, and disappointments, and the “terrible feeling of being just about to fall.”

This research monograph describes a large programming project in which an underwater organism, capable of perceiving, learning, deciding, and navigating, is computationally simulated. The developed computational model serves as a contemporary theory of perceptual-motor performance, embodying much of what is known about human vision and some of what is known about other cognitive processes. This artificial intelligence project has substantial contributions to make to the development of autonomous underwater vehicles. It also makes a specific theoretical statement about the organization and nature of organic perceptual motor systems that may be useful to psychologists, neuroscientists, and theoreticians in a number of other fields.

Haunts of the Black Masseur is a dazzling introduction to the great swimming heroes: Byron leaping into the surf at Shelley's beach funeral, Hart Crane, swallow-diving to his death in the Bay of Mexico, Ulysses, Leander, Weismuller and many more. In lively prose bursting with anecdote, Charles Sprawson leads us into a watery world populated by lithe demi-Gods – one that has obsessed humans from the ancient Greeks and Romans, to Yeats, Virginia Woolf, F. Scott Fitzgerald and David Hockney. Original, enticing and dripping with references to literature, film, art and Olympic history, this cult swimming classic pays sparkling tribute to water and the cultural meanings we attach to it.

This thesis presents a new interpretation of "The Swimmer," a short story by John Cheever, by applying formal principles of archetypal literary criticism to analyze the story. This archetypal analysis is supplemented by relevant material from Cheever's journals and manuscript archives. Grounded in Jung's concept of the collective unconscious as a repository of inherited archetypes, archetypal literary criticism, as interpreted by Northrop Frye, is particularly well-suited to Cheever's fiction because it correlates with Cheever's own theories of artistic creation. Chapter One explains the critical approach of archetypal literary criticism, including a discussion of its relevance to Cheever's fiction, and summarizes existing scholarship interpreting "The Swimmer." Chapter Two discusses the story's genesis and includes a discussion of Cheever's theories of short fiction. Chapter Three analyzes "The Swimmer" as an example of Frye's mythos of autumn, or tragedy. Chapter Three analyzes the story's main character, Ned Merrill, as an example of the tragic hero using Frye's theories and also examines the influence of Homer's Odyssey, observing parallels between the characters of Odysseus and Ned Merrill and suggesting the Odyssey as a possible source of the story's title. Chapter Five analyzes the story's archetypal imagery, including color and number symbolism, which expresses the story's tragic mythos of autumn. Chapter Six explores the tragic character of Ned Merrill as an example of Jung's archetype of the puer aeternus, the eternal child. Chapter Seven summarizes these various strands of interpretation and analysis to conclude the thesis.
