Autumn Light Media. Paperback. New. Isabelle Cardinal. Paperback. 208 pages. Dimensions: 8.0in. x 5.0in. x 0.8in.The lyrical prose reads like music set to words and, like the themes of any great symphony, these words evoke a medley of moods. . . a prose poem of near perfection, packed with phrases that glow like precious gems. A delicate embroidery of words, a tapestry of classical metaphors and allusions, a simplistically sophisticated style, and an eye-opening exegesis of musical mysteries. Aubrey Paton, Sunday Times. Two artists fly from two corners of the world to Vienna to unearth the mystery of the father of romantic music Beethovens lost ballet The Creatures of Prometheus. They are like marionettes pulled by the strings of Beethoven, always looking up to the sky to identify the invisible hands surrounding the series of coincidences which draw them together. In the city of music all artists are drawn to the fire of Prometheus, rising toward the sun, turning around the horizon in circles until man lies suspended between the spinning earth and the dizzy sky. In this fantastic exploration into romantic relationships the artists reality tends ever closer to magic realism as their stories merge in a climatic rhyming symphony. In mythology and theology, the male and female once existed as a single essence, before their creator split them apart. They will only rest after rediscovering one another, to become one and whole again. The Flight of the Wooden Dancer explores the essence of romantic relationships, compared to the relation between the creator and his art, through natural and unnatural forms of life.

This is another paragraph From Publishers Weekly: You/ are/ the sister/ The big/ Sister/ As hero, Alice Walker writes near the beginning of her sixth volume of poems: The one who sees/ The one who listens/ The one who guides/ Teaches/ & protects. Some of Walker's fans may feel this way about the author herself, whose decades of literary production and political activism include several bestselling novels, one Pulitzer for The Color Purple, influential essays about social change (most recently, Sent by Earth) and other much-acknowledged work in gender studies and African-American letters. Walker's poems have long been her warmest, least artful utterances, invoking the solidarity and the compassion she invites her readers to feel: this thick book of short-lined poems extends those goals, exploring and praising friendship, romantic love, home cooking, the peace movement, ancestors, ethnic diversity and particularly admirable strong women, among them the primatologist Jane Goodall. Some poems address topics of recent vintage, such as post-9/11 discrimination (If you/ Want to show/ Your love/ For America// Smile/ When you see/ His/ Turban/ Rosepink). Other work continues Walker's longer-term spiritual and ecological interests: the poet (who subtitled her 1990 collection Earthling Poems) now writes Divine Mother/ Keep on praying/ For us/ All Earthlings/ All children/ Of this awesome place/ Not one of us/ Knowing/ Why we're here/ Except to Be. Though critics' interest in Walker will continue to concentrate on her prose, the readers across the country who cherished Walker's earlier poems will find in this new work exactly what they've awaited., Women's Press, Borgo Press. Paperback. New. Paperback. 228 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.1in. x 0.6in.The first of William Morriss great fantastic romances is a translation of the old Norse saga, The House of the Wolfings. Of this tale, The Encyclodedia of Fantasy wrote: The first step toward the characteristic large-scale fantasies which have had such influence on the genre . . . is The House of the Wolfings. Here the setting is quasi-historical: a European Saxon community is resisting the decadent advances of late Imperial Rome. The romantic-supernatural story contains a large admixture of verse. Indeed, Morriss chief contribution to the book is his beautiful prose and poetry, for his version of the story is actually a collaboration with Norse scholar Eirikr Magnusson, who provided a literal translation of the original text, which Morris then reset as prose and poetry. Morriss version of The House of the Wolfings has influenced generations of writers, including J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and countless hundreds more. This item ships from multiple locations.

When checking out the warehouse, David, wife Emily and Louisa discover human bones. Not only does the family find bones, they also find a park behind the warehouse which adds to the intrigue of the building. In addition to the problem of an empty building, David also inherits a group of preservationists who wish to keep the historic atmosphere of Pleasant Creek intact. A second group of money-hungry land developers wants to profit from the sale of the land. A third faction wants control of the building to keep the bones a secret. These groups pester many aspects of Davids life-his office and business operations and his activities with his family at swim meets, picnics and investigating his new acquisition. Before David can dispose of his gift from his father, he must first solve the mystery of the building. Louisa and Emily use their resources to help solve a romantic legend surrounding the bones and the mystery of how those bones became a part of the building. Attention grabbing details, smooth prose, and interesting personal sidelights. -Library Journal (for Social Graces)Halls whimsical second mystery serves up a filling dish. -Publishers Weekly (for Nowhere is Somewhere) This item ships from multiple locations.

As early as 1843 he had made himself known as a lyrical poet of the Romantic School, . . . but he wrote nothing that excels, in depth and tenderness of feeling, the charming story of Immensee; and taking his work all in all, Storm still ranks today as a master of the short story in Ger-man literature, rich though it is in this form of prose-fiction. (C. W. Bell) --- Peter Schlemihl, one of the pleasantest fancies of the days when Germany delighted in romance, was first published in 1814. The story is a poets whim. Later writings of Chamisso (1781-1838) proved him to be one of the best lyric poets of the romance school of his time, entirely German in his tone of thought. (Henry Morley) --- Brigitta is usually regarded as an early example of German realism and written by probably the most accomplished Austrian prose writer of the nineteenth century, Adalbert Stifter (1805 - 68). . . , an illustration of Stifters didactic con-cern with inner beauty in contrast to outward appearances. . . Stifter instructs us in more than inner beauty by demonstrating for us - perhaps unwittingly - that the preferred and positive values of the civilized world are always already informed by their antinomies.
