Book Short Summary:

To try to explain what happens when I write is difficult - but the facts are - it is an open playing field for me - I can be anyone I want to be, and go anywhere I want to go. So sharing a few of those little jaunts with you - just makes it all much more fun. This book has four short stories and 5 of my most favorite poems. The stories range from pirates to gypsies, from the Civil War to LA - 2005, and each one with a lady in the middle of the adventure....So, hopefully you have a minute to escape with me, and you can find a corner somewhere to just take a little day trip with my Book of Stories and Poems.

Book Short Summary:

John Taylor's brilliant new book examines the work of many of the major poets who have deeply marked modern and contemporary European literature. Venturing far and wide from the France in which he has lived since the late 1970s, the polyglot writer-critic not only delves into the more widely translated literatures of Italy, Greece, Germany, and Austria, but also discovers impressive and overlooked work in Slovenia, Bosnia, Hungary, Finland, Norway, and the Netherlands in this book that ranges over nearly all of Europe, including Russia.While providing this stimulating and far-ranging critical panorama, Taylor brings to light key themes of European writing: the depth of everyday life, the quest of the thing-in-itself, metaphysical aspiration and anxiety, the dialectics of negativity and affirmation, subjectivity and self-effacement, and uprootedness as a category that is as ontological as it is geographical, historical, political, or cultural. The book pays careful attention to the intersection of writing and history (or politics), as several poets featured here have faced the Second World War, the Holocaust, Communism, the fall of Communism, or the war in the former Yugoslavia.Taylor gives the work of renowned, upcoming, and still little-known poets a thorough look, all the while scrutinizing recent translations of their verse. He highlights several poets who are also masters of the prose poem. He includes a few novelists who have fashioned a particularly original kind of poetic prose, that stylistic category that has proved so difficult for critics to define. Into the Heart of European Poetry should be of immediate interest to any reader curious about the aesthetic and philosophical ideas underlying major trends of contemporary European writing. In a day and age when much too little is translated and thus known about foreign literature, and when Europeans themselves are pondering the common denominators of their own culture, this book is a

Book Short Summary:

Caribbean Literature in English places its subject in its precise regional context. The `Caribbean', generally considered as one area, is highly discrete in its topography, race and languages, including mainland Guyana, the Atlantic island of Barbados, the Lesser Antilles, Trinidad, and Jamaica, whose size and history gave it an early sense of separate nationhood. Beginning with Raleigh's Discoverie of...Guiana (1596), this innovative study traces the sometimes surprising evolution of cultures which shared a common experience of slavery, but were intimately related to individual local areas. The approach is interdisciplinary, examining the heritage of the plantation era, and the issues of language and racial identity it created. From this base, Louis James reassesses the phenomenal expansion of writing in the contemporary period. He traces the influence of pan-Caribbean movements and the creation of an expatriate Caribbean identity in Britain and America: `Brit'n' is considered as a West Indian island, created by `colonization in reverse'. Further sections treat the development of a Caribbean aesthetic, and the repossession of cultural roots from Africa and Asia. Balancing an awareness of the regional identity of Caribbean literature with an exploration of its place in world and postcolonial literatures, this study offers a panoramic view that has become one of the most vital of the `new literatures in English'. This accessible overview of Caribbean writing will appeal to the general reader and student alike, and particularly to all who are interested in or studying Caribbean literatures and culture, postcolonial studies, Commonwealth 'new literatures' and contemporary literature and drama.

Book Short Summary:

The Botsotso literary journal started in 1996 as a monthly 4 page insert in the New Nation, an independent anti-apartheid South African weekly and reached over 80,000 people at a time – largely politisized black workers and youth – with a selection of poems, short stories and short essays that reflected the deep changes taking place in the country at that time. Since the closure of the New Nation in 1999, the journal has evolved into a stand-alone compilation featuring the same mix of genres, and with the addition of photo essays and reviews. The Botsotso editorial policy remains committed to creating a mix of voices which highlight the diverse spectrum of South African identities and languages, particularly those that are dedicated to radical expression and examinations of South Africa's complex society.

""Our meddling intellect misshapes the beauteous forms of things; we murder to dissect,"" Wordsworth cautioned at the dawning of a new age of science and technology. It is a caution that, in addition to applying to the study of art and nature, might also apply to our investigation of the creative process, which has engaged the meddling minds of many. ...the process involved in literary creation, in particular, has fascinated many ordinary people, as well as a great many psychologists and philosophers, from Plato on.... The variety of approach and style in "Writing Fiction and Poetry" extends also to gender and experience. The book contains essays and interviews of 12 internationally-known North Carolina writers.

Book Short Summary:

This book is one man's journey through rebirth, self discovery, love, pain and growth. It is nothing profound, however it is simple poetry written mostly in verse utilizing play on words and conveying messages and lessons learned. My friends that have seen bits and pieces of this book have smiled, laughed and some have been moved. My favorite description that I've heard most often is "cute." This book is written mostly about me, and subjects and people that have touched and tested me. I believe I'm an interesting person and that my life has been also. This book has been compiled over the years and people have always requested copies of individual pieces. I have been prompted by many to publish my work so I thought others may enjoy seeing my poetry through my eyes also. I believe this book is insightful and that "old school" would describe it as "deep." This book will not be a best seller however it most certainly will be an enjoyable experience. Please come meet Brother Rook and I and see for yourself, Poetry through my Eyes. I was born "Edward Carl Colding" to the birth parents Father, Robert L. Colding, originally from Tampa Florida and Mother, Verna (Catanch) Colding originally from Ahoskie North Carolina. I was born and raised in the concrete jungle of West Philadelphia. I was always your average young boy that was exposed to more drama than I could comprehend very similar to the fictional character "Preach" in the movie Cooley High. I worked hard and finally freed myself of my many complexes and I developed an alter ego that I call "Brother Rook." In three years in and out of the classrooms of Overbrook Senior High School I moved from feeling unworthy and being a young boy to making a place for myself, proving I belong and in the process becoming an old man practically overnight. I erased my square dull points by becoming a well rounded 20 year veteran of The United States Air Force. I dealt with many different types of people and traveled half way around the world which sharpened my senses and gave me a passion for life. -- Once in grade school in the auditorium I was assigned to recite the poem "Trees" by Joyce Kilmer. Like many kids I froze even though I knew that poem like the back of my hand. I'll never forget that day or that poem. From that day to this; I have loved to express myself in poetry and I enjoy an audience, because "poems are written, by fools like "me," but only GOD can make a Tree."

Book Short Summary:

A breathtaking achievement, this Concise Companion is a suitable crown to the astonishing production in African American literature and criticism that has swept over American literary studies in the last two decades. It offers an enormous range of writers-from Sojourner Truth to Frederick Douglass, from Zora Neale Hurston to Ralph Ellison, and from Toni Morrison to August Wilson. It contains entries on major works (including synopses of novels), such as Harriet Jacobs's Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl, Richard Wright's Native Son, and Lorraine Hansberry's A Raisin in the Sun. It also incorporates information on literary characters such as Bigger Thomas, Coffin Ed Johnson, Kunta Kinte, Sula Peace, as well as on character types such as Aunt Jemima, Brer Rabbit, John Henry, Stackolee, and the trickster. Icons of black culture are addressed, including vivid details about the lives of Muhammad Ali, John Coltrane, Marcus Garvey, Jackie Robinson, John Brown, and Harriet Tubman. Here, too, are general articles on poetry, fiction, and drama; on autobiography, slave narratives, Sunday School literature, and oratory; as well as on a wide spectrum of related topics. Compact yet thorough, this handy volume gathers works from a vast array of sources--from the black periodical press to women's clubs--making it one of the most substantial guides available on the growing, exciting world of African American literature.

Book Short Summary:

The Broadview Anthology of Victorian Poetry and Poetic Theory is the most comprehensive collection of poetry from the period ever published. Included are generous selections from the work of all major poets, and a representation of the work of virtually every poet of significance, from Thomas Ashe at the beginning of the era to Charlotte Mew at its end. The work of Victorian women poets features very prominently, with extensive selections not only from canonical poets such as Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti, but also from poets such as Augusta Webster for which high claims have recently been made by critics. The anthology reflects (and will contribute to) the ongoing reassessment of the canon that is central to English Studies today; in all, sixty-six poets are represented. The editors have included complete works wherever feasible—including the complete texts of Tennyson’s In Memoriam and of a number of other long poems. A headnote by the editors introduces the work of each poet, and each selection has been newly annotated. The inclusion of twenty-five selections of the poetic theory from the period is an important feature rounding out the anthology. This anthology is also available in a concise edition.

Book Short Summary:

In this volume of The Practice and Other Stories, a collection of short stories and selected poems, I tried to write with some satiric wit and Jewish humor about working-class New York characters that I had observed during my growing- up years in Brooklyn from the 1950’s to 1970’s. I have been greatly influenced by the movies and I try to turn a satiric camera eye on the details of every day life. This collection of five short stories and 4 poems represents my continued appreciation for the short story format. Blind Man is the result of my child hood recollections of being forced to visit with various family members in the exotic (to me) borough of the Bronx. It is a story of starry eyed youth on the threshold of lost innocence and the discovery, for better or worse, of a much wider world. The Visit is a story about enduring family bonds despite conflicting world views and value systems. The Practice, which was first published in the Jewish Digest January, 1971, is a story about the confluence of mysticism, superstition and science in the life of a Brighton Beach family doctor whose old world clients see him as more of a shaman than a physician. The Fundraiser is a story about an older working man caught between his need to earn a living in a profession he has come to detest and the realization that he needs to find a better way of life. Coney Island Limey is a story based loosely on the real life antics of an eccentric chap from Liverpool who sneaks into America under rather dubious circumstances and who then tries to ingratiate himself into the good graces of a rather naïve Brooklyn family of misfits in hopes of wedding their beautiful if somewhat clueless daughter. The four poems are included in this collection because they are four of my personal favorites. In addition to several years working in sales for Rizzoli Editore, Prudential, and John Hancock, I also worked at various times a public relations consultant for various business and non-profit clients as well as a public relations consultant and writer for several governmental entities such Brooklyn Borough President Sebastian Leone and the New York State Consumer Protection Board during the administration of Gov. Hugh Carey. My resume also includes several stints in New York and New Jersey as a fundraiser for the Council of Jewish Federations and the United Jewish Appeal. After earning my MSW from Temple University, I went to work in the field of child welfare for both the New York City and City of Philadelphia Departments of Human Services. During my undergraduate years at Hamilton College, I studied creative writing with Wallace Markfield (To An Early Grave, Teitlebaum’s Window) and with Alex Haley (Roots, The Autobiography of Malcolm X).Today, I make my home in Philadelphia where I continue to work and write. As a callow youth of twenty, I dreamed of taking the literary world by storm. I was greatly influenced by the works of Mark Twain, O’Henry, Sholem Aleichem, Edgar Allen Poe, Bernard Malamud, Jack Kerouac, Mario Puzo, William Faulkner, Eugene O’Neil, William Saroyan, Philip Roth, William Shakespeare, Isaac Bashevis Singer and Wallace Markfield. I was equally moved by the poetry of such great poets as Lord Byron, John Keats, Percy Shelly, Dylan Thomas, Paul Verlaine, Arthur Rimbaud, Charles Baudelaire and Allen Ginsberg. Equally important to my development as a writer are the works of Albert Camus, Jean Paul Sartre, Andre Gide, Andre Malraux, and Eugene Ianesco. Cinematic influences include: David Lean; the French New Wave auteurs such as Jean Luc Goddard and Francois Truffaut; the comedic geniuses of Charles Chaplin, Buster Keaton, Jerry Lewis, and Jacques Tati; the American masters such as Francis Ford Copolla, Martin Scorcese, George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg. With this collection of short stories and selected poems I may not have ta
