Description : From the perceptive mind of poet-author James Wiggins comes this inspiring poetry anthology, After Eden. He pens down these verses because of the crisis he sees in the world now. This collection of poems and quotes are not to be taken out of content, because these are politically, racially, socially, and religiously "neutral". From his many conversations and interactions with people come these poems about the Creator, His name, creations, and the one He created in His image. Also featured in this volume are poems written by guest poets who share their own thoughts on human existence in thought-provoking pieces.

Description : Eden or paradise is not a place, nor has it even been a place, but rather is a metaphor for an inner experience of a paradisaical state of inner unity. It is the home we miss and long for, and yet it is the home we have never left, nor has 'It' ever left us..

Description : Setting the discussion within the context of the modern environmental debate, the author examines the works of British poets Philip Larkin, R.S. Thomas, Charles Tomlinson, Ted Hughes, and Seamus Heaney in an attempt to show their contributions to the tradition of British landscape poetry and illustrate some of the themes which have dominated that tradition. Arguing that environmentalism had its beginnings as an aesthetic movement rather than a scientific one, he discusses the implications of the poets' treatments of the Eden myth and other concepts as illustrative of humanity's concept of itself as standing outside of nature.

Description : Dave Oliphant is widely considered the finest poetry critic ever produced by Texas. This volume brings together some 40 years of essays, articles, and reviews on the topic of Texas poetry -- its history as well as addressing individual poets and their books. Only one other book in the last two decades addressed the topic, and GENERATIONS OF TEXAS POETS is larger, more comprehensive, and of superior literary quality. In 1971, Larry McMurtry famously descried the lack of good Texas poetry; Oliphant has spent a lifetime nurturing it, publishing it, and has become its best critic.

Description : According to scriptural myth the story of the species known as man began with "the man" being expelled from the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:23-24). The journey that "the man" embarked upon was physical life, and every being that has ever been born has continued that journey of self-discovery. This is the simple premise upon which After Eden is structured. Although each poem, verse and entry stands as an individual composition, it is when they are read in sequence that we gradually realize that they are actually relating small parts of a larger multi-faceted picture. Almost reluctantly the attention moves from simplicity and innocence into the sensual frailties and harsh realities encountered with life. The result is a very personal approach to life's experiences as related by one who dares to sometimes question the hollow shibboleths that pass as spiritual insight. Life's diversity is celebrated by this life traveler who is a special blend of pilgrim, vagabond, maverick and seeker of rational belief. He discovers that life's intended destination is found in accepting the universal essences that we each embody.

Description : "After Eden: A Love Story" is a non-fiction novel based on memoirs of a general hospital psychiatrist who detects abnormal presence of fluid on examination of his wife's abdomen. Her fatal illness from ovarian cancer is the subject of a candid narration of love, loss, and recovery. Selected chapters dramatize the narrator's altered role, the family's experience, the complexity of medical interactions in the setting of tragic illness and the hope that follows from a loving marriage and a fulfilling career of patient care. Strong character development, rich dialogue, and candid revelation by the narrator make this a unique work. The writing is richly introspective, authoritative, and uncommonly honest. The dialogue is compelling. The characters are real people who grow with the narrative. This book will appeal to a general adult audience as well as to health care professionals and families of cancer patients.

Description : Much can be learned from a nation's literature. Examining three hundred years of cultural traditions, Katherine L. Morrison, a former American, now a Canadian, takes the reader through the historical, political, and sociological milieu of Canada and the United States to dispel misconceptions that they share near-identical social attitudes and historical experiences.To most Americans and much of the rest of the world, America and Canada differ little except in terms of climate. It is true that they share a common British heritage and immigration patterns, but there are subtle cultural differences between the two countries. These may appear insignificant to Americans, but they are not insignificant to Canadians. Comparing mythologies each of the countries share about the other, the author examines national views of their histories, from the common origin of both nations in the American Revolution, through the two world wars. She also examines the role of nature and images of place and home in Canadian and American literary writing, noting the disparate historical development of the two national literatures. Using specific works by recognized authors of their time, Morrison considers the role of religion and the church, violence and the law, and humor and satire, in the literature of both countries. The book also explores the role of women, race, and class in the literature of both countries. It concludes with a discussion of the tenacity of national myths, and draws some tentative conclusions.Now published in paperback in the United States, Morrison's broad-based approach to a largely unexplored subject will invite future study as well as improve understanding between Canada and the United States. Canadians and Americans will be of interest to cultural historians, American studies specialists, political scientists, and sociologists.

Description : "This is a poetry of deep spiritual longing and inquiry, quietly urgent-a lyricism that's intuitively right, a vision that's the steady but bemused gaze of intelligence. Diane Vreuls' saints might be Malcolm, adult (but other-oriented) who's directed by his mother's voice from the transistor radio in the basket of his giant trike, or Perpetua, who admits, like Vreuls, 'that only God can know / what is a cry of pain, / and what a song.' This is a poetry that might take years to make, or no-time-so natural is its expression, so rare the sensibility. It's elliptical, often a poetry of glimpses, cumulatively resonant-a poetry that's a pilgrimage, and a whole life."-DENNIS SCHMITZ, author of Animism "From 'the first word will be You' to 'the Yes I am trying to learn, ' another first word, these deeply gentle poems seem to read us as much as we read them. The poems both fiercely claim themselves, and claim nothing.-Thank you for such work, God, pages which lived a life and became a human."-JEAN VALENTINE, author of Shirt in Heaven "Beginning with her wonderful stripped-down version of the birth of Christ, and with a childhood in which 'with every breath the Holy Spirit calls us into being, ' Diane Vreuls has constructed a poetic record of a spiritual journey that unfolds in a lush panorama. The powerful love for God that runs through these poems is as real as any sentiment I've read in any book of poems. It seems impossible to contain such a sweep of history and time in one collection, but these poems are driven by a mature poetic vision rarely seen. When you read poems that act on your soul, then you know you are in the presence of genius. I can't wait for you to read these poems out loud to someone you love, and to relish in the power of their spiritual energy, where the rush of spring buds announce the resurrection, and you are freed from the burdens of the ordinary."-BRUCE WEIGL, author of The Abundance of Nothing

Description : For sublimity and philosophical grandeur Milton stands almost alone in world literature. His peers are Homer, Virgil, Dante, Wordsworth, and Goethe. Gordon Teskey shows how Milton’s aesthetic joins beauty to truth and value to ethics and how he rediscovers the art of poetry as a way of thinking in the world as it is, and for the world as it can be.

Description : This is a unique new reference book to English-language writers and writing throughout the present century, in all major genres and from all around the world - from Joseph Conrad to Will Self, Virginia Woolf to David Mamet, Ezra Pound to Peter Carey, James Joyce to Amy Tan. The survivors of the Victorian age who feature in The Oxford Companion to Twentieth-Century Literature in English - writers such as Thomas Hardy, Olive Schreiner, Rabindranath Tagore, Henry James - could hardly have imagined how richly diverse `Literature in English' would become by the end of the century. Fiction, plays, poetry, and a whole range of non-fictional writing are celebrated in this informative, readable, and catholic reference book, which includes entries on literary movements, periodicals, and over 400 individual works, as well as articles on some 2,400 authors. All the great literary figures are included, whether American or Australian, British, Irish, or Indian, African or Canadian or Caribbean - among them Samuel Beckett, Edith Wharton, Patrick White, T. S. Eliot, Derek Walcott, D. H. Lawrence, Tennessee Williams, Vladimir Nabokov, Wole Soyinka, Sylvia Plath - as well as a wealth of less obviously canonical writers, from Anaïs Nin to L. M. Montgomery, Bob Dylan to Terry Pratchett. The book comes right up to date with contemporary figures such as Toni Morrison, Ben Okri, Salman Rushdie, Carol Shields, Tim Winton, Nadine Gordimer, Vikram Seth, Don Delillo, and many others. Title entries range from Aaron's Rod to The Zoo Story; topics from Angry Young Men, Bestsellers, and Concrete Poetry to Soap Opera, Vietnam Writing, and Westerns. A lively introduction by John Sutherland highlights the various and sometimes contradictory canons that have emerged over the century, and the increasingly international sources of writing in English which the Companion records. Catering for all literary tastes, this is the most comprehensive single-volume guide to modern (and postmodern) literature.

Description : Constituent and Pattern in Poetry is a collection of essays on literature and language. It is built on the assumption that works of literature have existence in the real world and that they may be analyzed in a fashion that is not totally subjective. Using models derived from structural linguistics, Archibald A. Hill presents a number of theoretical contributions to the study of poetry, as well as new ways of looking at specific poems. The book as a whole provides an overview of the tools and ideas Hill has developed for analyzing works of literature, and it is the first time the essays have been gathered together in one volume. The book is divided into three sections: Definition of Literature and Study of Its Patterns, Types of Meaning and Imagery, and Principles for Interpreting Meaning. Each section opens with a theoretical essay, followed by three essays that work analytically with specific poets and poems using the methods defined in the first. In his examination of such poets as Hopkins, Browning, Milton, Blake, Keats, and Dickinson, Hill uses such proposals as the law of least lexical contribution and maximal contextual contribution; the hypothesis that, when possible meanings occur together in a cluster, they support each other; and the idea that it is sometimes possible to recover underlying language sequences from which the author has departed for identifiable reasons. By applying these suppositions to the study of particular poems, Hill shows how the reader may arrive at statements about the relative artistic merit of works of literature.
