Speak, Memory is an autobiographical memoir by writer Vladimir Nabokov. The book includes individual essays published between and to create the first edition in Nabokov’s revised and extended edition appeared in The book is dedicated to his wife, Vera , and covers his life from until his emigration to America in The first twelve chapters describe Nabokov’s remembrance of his youth in an aristocratic family living in pre- revolutionary Saint Petersburg and at their country estate Vyra, near Siverskaya.

Through memory Nabokov is able to possess the past. The cradle rocks above an abyss, and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness. Nabokov published ” Mademoiselle O “, which became Chapter Five of the book, in French in , and in English in The Atlantic Monthly in , without indicating that it was non-fiction. Subsequent pieces of the autobiography were published as individual or collected stories, with each chapter able to stand on its own.

It recounts, for example, how his first butterfly escapes at Vyra, in Russia, and is “overtaken and captured” forty years later on a butterfly hunt in Colorado. The book’s opening line, “The cradle rocks above an abyss, and common sense tells us that our existence is but a brief crack of light between two eternities of darkness,” is arguably a paraphrase of Thomas Carlyle ‘s “One Life; a little gleam of Time between two Eternities,” found in Carlyle’s lecture “The Hero as Man of Letters,” published in On Heroes, Hero-Worship, and The Heroic in History in There is also a similar concept expressed in On the nature of things by the Roman Poet Lucretius.

Wedged as we are between two eternities of idleness, there is no excuse for being idle now. Nabokov writes in the text that he was dissuaded from titling the book Speak, Mnemosyne by his publisher, who feared that readers would not buy a “book whose title they could not pronounce”.

The Russian version was published in and called Drugie berega Other Shores. An extended edition including several photographs was published in as Speak, Memory: An Autobiography Revisited. In Alfred A. Knopf issued a new edition with the addition of a previously unpublished section titled “Chapter 16”.

There are variations between the individually published chapters, the two English versions, and the Russian version. Nabokov, having lost his belongings in , wrote from memory, and explains that certain reported details needed corrections; thus the individual chapters as published in magazines and the book versions differ. Also, the memoirs were adjusted to either the English- or Russian-speaking audience. It has been proposed that the ever-shifting text of his autobiography suggests that “reality” cannot be “possessed” by the reader, the “esteemed visitor”, but only by Nabokov himself.

Nabokov had planned a sequel under the title Speak on, Memory or Speak, America. He wrote, however, a fictional autobiographic memoir of a double persona, Look at the Harlequins! The chapters were individually published as follows—in the New Yorker , unless otherwise indicated:. The book was instantly called a masterpiece by the literary world.

He later regains his personality during a time-travel adventure and sharing a romance with Alicia Masters. Silver Surfer temporarily bonds with and is controlled by the Carnage symbiote , which is seeking revenge for the destruction of its homeworld. Later, the Surfer works with the alien Annunaki race to gather and protect some of Earth’s most extraordinarily gifted children.

During his travels, the Surfer is captured by a portal of the Sakaar Empire. Left weakened and vulnerable by his trip through the portal, the Surfer is subdued and implanted with an obedience disk to ensure he remains loyal to them. Fighting as a gladiator and believed to be the fabled ‘Sakaarson’ due to his appearance , the Surfer is finally forced to face the Hulk along with his Warbound. Through teamwork and distraction, the Hulk is eventually able to destroy the Surfer’s obedience disk.

The Hulk and several other slaves and gladiators are freed when the Surfer uses the Power Cosmic to remove their own obedience disks and give them a way out of the arena, although the Hulk declines the Surfer’s offer to take him back to Earth. During the Annihilation war, the Silver Surfer again becomes Galactus’s herald to help save the universe from the despot Annihilus.

Drax the Destroyer frees the Surfer, who in turn frees Galactus. An enraged Galactus destroys more than half the Annihilation Wave, and Annihilus is defeated. The Silver Surfer leads the world devourer to the populated planet Orbucen, which brings him into conflict with Richard Rider.

He delays the planetary destruction to give the inhabitants more time to evacuate. The Silver Surfer returns to Sakaar in a plan to feed Galactus with the unique “Old Power” which he claims would sate his master’s hunger for thousands of years, sparing many other inhabited worlds. He is opposed by the Hulk’s son, Skaar , and is enslaved by an obedience disc. The conflict is ended when Skaar’s mother Caiera sacrifices her soul and Old Power as sustenance for Galactus.

The battle ended when the Silver Surfer chose to leave his post as herald and guard an Asgardian artifact. Galactus “tethers” him to Asgard’s location in Oklahoma , resulting in his powers waning the further he travels from Asgard, and grants him the ability to return to human form. Silver Surfer and Dawn meet Glorian the Maker of Miracles, who plans to rebuild our universe for the heroes to return to after they finish in Battleworld. Glorian has also enlisted the help of the Shaper of Worlds.

Dawn agreed to use her memories to restore Earth while Silver Surfer left to restore the rest of the universe, but Silver Surfer unmade Galactus while Dawn unknowingly created another version of Norrin. The Shaper of Worlds is not happy with the changes.

When Silver Surfer was displaced in time, he had an encounter with Knull. Gathering the energy from the cosmos, Silver Surfer managed to defeat Knull. During the ” King in Black ” storyline, Silver Surfer passes by the planets that were ravaged by Knull. Knull reels in pain and Eddie Brock is chosen to be the new Captain Universe. Through the God of Light, Silver Surfer assumes a chrome form and turns his surfboard into a sword while Knull transforms his armor into one that would enable him to combat Silver Surfer.

Just then, Venom appears having been transformed into Captain Universe stating that he will handle Knull for them. With their weapons separated from the battle axe form following Knull’s death, Thor and Silver Surfer noted that things will not be back to normal soon.

The Silver Surfer wields the Power Cosmic , granting him superhuman strength, endurance, and senses and the ability to absorb and manipulate the universe’s ambient energy. The Surfer can navigate through interstellar space [78] and hyperspace, which he can enter after exceeding the speed of light allowing traversing interstellar and intergalactic distances to other galaxies millions and even billions of light years away.

The Surfer sustains himself by converting matter into energy; he does not require food, water, air, or sleep, but occasionally enters a sleep-like meditation to dream. He can survive in nearly any known natural environment, including deep space, hyperspace, black holes [81] and stars. His senses enable him to detect objects and concentrations of energy light years away and to perceive matter and energy in subatomic detail, including life energies of living beings.

The Surfer’s board is composed of a nearly impervious, cosmically powered silvery material similar to his own skin. The board is mentally linked to the Surfer and moves in response to his mental commands even when he is not in physical contact with it. When Galactus exiled the Surfer to Earth, his means of imprisonment was linked to the board. When the Surfer and the Fantastic Four realized this, the Surfer put it to the test by leaving the board planet-side and entering space in the Four’s spacecraft.

Once he was free of Earth, the Surfer remotely converted the board to energy, recalled it to him, and reformed it in space. The Surfer has displayed the ability to shed his silver skin and revert to his original appearance as Norrin Radd, masking the Power Cosmic and allowing him to be more inconspicuous when needed.

In this state, he can properly eat, drink and sleep. Warren Ellis ‘s Ultimate Galactus Trilogy originally suggested that the Ultimates ‘ ally the Vision was the herald of Galactus, a robotic probe that travels through space warning civilizations of the impending arrival of Gah Lak Tus.

In the final miniseries of the trilogy, Ultimate Extinction , silvery humanoids began to appear, sent to trigger mass suicides in order to reduce the population’s resistance.

Suicide cults founded by the creatures began to appear all across the globe as Gah Lak Tus drew near. These silvery beings had the ability to grow wings; morph into an ovoid ; form spikes; or take an intermediary form, gliding on an oval surface. They also demonstrated the ability to manipulate large quantities of energy. He is teleported to Earth after Reed mistakes him for a star that he is trying to harness.

His appearance triggers planet-wide chaos and natural calamities. In 43, Reed comments that Gah Lak Tus seems to have modeled its drones on this surfer, and he gives his name as Norin Radd.

The Searcher states that he will summon his “master”, who will make the population of the Earth happier than they have ever been.

It is revealed that the Surfer has been exiled from Zenn-La for destroying the control that Psycho-Man had over Zenn-La, but because of finding Earth for his master to “save” he may return. After Psycho-Man gains domain over Earth, the Silver Surfer, temporarily imprisoned in his own ‘memorial’ statue, rescues Mr. Fantastic, tells him his story, and asks him to save Earth. With the Surfers beaten and the insane Psycho-Man reprogrammed to experience the unthinking happiness he had imposed on others, Silver Surfer wanders the space ways.

He informs Phoenix that the Watchers disapprove of the problems her flight across the universe is causing and briefly battles her before asking what she is looking for. On Earth , Norrin Radd had been a great military scientist who accidentally destroyed his own world with his greatest invention.

Determined to bring it back to existence, he approached Galactus , Restorer of Worlds, and became his herald in the hope that Galactus would resurrect his world in exchange for his service. However, Galactus had taken an oath to only revive those worlds destroyed by the Blight. An enraged Silver Surfer then turned against his master, destroying those who worshiped him and attempting to kill Galactus himself in order to steal the knowledge of world restoration.

This led to the destruction of Earth, the coming of the Exiles , the deaths of the Shi’ar Imperial Elite Guard, and inevitably the Surfer’s own destruction at the claws of a cosmically empowered Sabretooth. Instead of coming to Earth and meeting the Fantastic Four, he is attacked by a horde of zombies. His corpse grants the zombies a portion each of his cosmic powers, which they use to kill all of the other zombie heroes and villains whom they consider “competition” for what’s left of the living.

Afterwards, Pym creates a machine that concentrates the Cosmic powers they all share to create a massive blast that kills Galactus , at which point they eat him.

Now imbued with the power of Galactus himself and realizing they can now fly and survive in space , they adopt his role, traveling the universe and picking worlds clean of life. During the finale of Last Planet Standing , the Silver Surfer foils Galactus’s plan to create a new Big Bang, merging with Galactus himself in the process to become a new being. Gaining control of Galactus’s powers, the new entity undoes the damage done by the old Galactus. In the alternate timeline of Earth, notably the Guardians of the Galaxy issues 24 and 25 story arc , Norrin Radd was featured as The Keeper.

This new version of the Silver Surfer, sans his surfboard, had Quantum Bands , which augmented his “Power Cosmic” and designated him as the Protector of the Universe, as with other bearers of the Bands before him. He works with the Guardians in an attempt to kill Galactus once and for all, his first attempt with Firelord and Dargo-Thor having failed. Eventually, the Keeper realizes that, with his augmented power, he can supply Galactus with the energy he needs and end the Planet-Eater’s consumption of worlds.

Eon, cosmic being and creator of the Quantum Bands, reveals that this was the ultimate purpose of the Keeper becoming the Protector of the Universe, and he enters into a symbiotic partnership with Galactus, who accepts the Keeper as an equal; he is last seen leaving with Galactus, riding a silver surfboard once more.

The Silver Surfer accompanies him along with his love Shalla-Bal, who had now been turned into a silver herald of Galactus as well. Parallax beats the Cyborg, but the Silver Surfer lets him go and tries to sympathize with Parallax. The two return to Earth to find Kyle Rayner with Thanos, leading them to believe they formed an alliance when in reality Thanos tricked Kyle.

Kyle convinces the Surfer to help him stop Parallax and Thanos from destroying the universe and that he was duped into giving Thanos Oa’s power. The Surfer similarly gave most of his power to Parallax to reform the destroyed planet, forcing Kyle to use his ring to drain both villains of their enhanced powers before they can destroy everything.

Unable to contain the power himself, Kyle channels the power from the two villains into the Silver Surfer, who opens a portal and sucks the two inside. Silver Surfer was featured in different issues of What If? When the Kree Liberation Force set forth to invade Earth, they found the floating mutilated corpse of the Surfer near Earth’s moon. Mar-Vell says that he and his comrades concluded that the Surfer had been driven mad because of his lack of need for oxygen and clawed open his chest in order to expose his lungs to the atmosphere, but died of shock.

In addition to his history of publication in comic books, the Silver Surfer has appeared or starred in several prose fiction books:.

One stamp shows the Silver Surfer on his board, and another features the cover of the first issue of the series. Satriani was actually unfamiliar with the character at the time; the album’s production manager suggested the character’s usage. The Silver Surfer has appeared in several Marvel-based action figure and toy lines, including one celebrating the 30th anniversary of the character’s first appearance, and three based on the animated series.

The Silver Surfer starred in his own “all-prism” trading card series in , released by Comics Images. He has also appeared in many of Marvel’s other trading card sets, notably each of the Marvel Universe Cards , Marvel Masterpieces , and Marvel Flair Cards trading card series as well as the Marvel OverPower trading card game.

The Silver Surfer was ranked as the 47th-greatest comic book character of all time by Wizard magazine. The series was given a negative review by Newsarama ‘s Pierce Lydon, who cites Laura Allred’s coloring as the issue’s biggest flaw. The character’s various series have been collected into the following trade paperbacks :.

The book and magazine collector index free two decades have seen an exponential change in the field of collecting, archiving and the book trade. It’s a well-repeated phrase, but the internet has created a level playing field for both collectors and those looking for information. Prices for once scarce books have fallen dramatically. Values for first editions have risen but this aspect of collecting has lost impetus recently among all but public institutions and the extremely well-heeled.

That in itself can’t be a bad thing. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again.

Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on адрес heart also helps it regain normal rhythm.
