Description : A new edition of the Russian Nobelist's collection of novellas, short stories, and prose poems Stories and Prose Poems contains twenty-two works of widely varied style and character from the Nobel Prize winner Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. These shorter pieces demonstrate the extraordinary mastery of language that places Solzhenitsyn among the greatest Russian prose writers of the twentieth century. When the two superb stories "Matryona's House" and "An Incident at Krechetovka Station" were first published in Russia in 1963, the Moscow Literary Gazette, the mouthpiece of the Soviet literary establishment, wrote: "His talent is so individual and so striking that from now on nothing that comes from his pen can fail to excite the liveliest interest." For some readers the most exciting discovery will be the astonishing group of sixteen prose poems. In these works of varying lengths, Solzhenitsyn has distilled the joy and bitterness of Russia's fate into language of unrivaled lyrical purity.

Description : Many years ago suffering a series of deep personal losses, Gene wanted to die and planned to. Yet he knew that was wrong. Writing about these feelings eased the pain. Desperate to be able to hold some gentle thoughts, he began writing in earnest, reinterpreting these happenings for himself. Soon he could see other points of view which enabled him to cope. Focusing on setting these experiences to rhythm and rhyme took his attention from the pain. As his interest and capabilities grew so did his collection of writings. Sharing these words seemed to help others too. People had constantly encouraged him to publish. He began giving book signings, readings and public speaking. They would also return bringing others to hear these words. He wondered if he could put into prose, poetry and/or short stories the issues that he found difficult to deal with. If an incident was too sensitive, painful or joyous to think about, could he make it easier to cope with? Through the exercise of putting these experiences into one or more of these three choices of expression he became able to deal with his most extraordinary difficulties. Whether positive or negative, he could cope! Some readers say that their applying these principles gets good results. Now he just wants to put these words into the ears, hands and hearts of those who also seek to be able to . . . . . . hold a gentle thought.
Description : Bringing together four entire collections of the prose poems and short stories of the lesbian Symbolist "RenÉe Vivien" (Pauline Mary Tarn, 1877-1909), the current volume is compromised predominately of works which have never before appeared in English. It is as much by virtue of her idiosyncrasies as because of her considerable artistry that Pauline Tarn/RenÉe Vivien was, and remains, an extremely interesting figure. She had the rare privilege of combining a very considerable technical skill and intellectual brilliance with a vivid and versatile imagination and a literary standpoint that was unique in its day. That standpoint remains unusual even now, although historical circumstances have become much more hospitable to its potential appreciation in the last quarter of a century and her work is certainly more likely to find a sympathetic and understanding audience today than ever before. The four collections in this volume are: Fjord Mists, From Green to Violet, The She-Wolf Lady, and Christ, Aphrodite and Monsieur PÉpin.
