'The Natural Sciences and Beliefs; Opening speech to mark the 25th anniversary of the Verein für Natur- und Heimatkunde in Koln and the Rhein. ' Inscribed to Rabbi Jakobovitz by the author. Bruno Zecharias Kisch (1890-1966) “was a medical doctor, biochemist, and Jewish scholar. He was one of the founders of the Juedisches Lehrhaus in Cologne and taught experimental medicine, physiology, and biochemistry at the University of Cologne until 1936, when he was forced to leave Nazi Germany. He taught at Yale and Yeshiva Universities in the United States subsequent to his emigration. He was a founder and president of the American College of Cardiology and made many medical contributions. ” - Guide to the Bruno Kisch Papers, Yeshiva Univ. Subjects: Science - Philosophy. Materialism. OCLC lists 22 copies. Light soiling to wraps, light chipping to backstrip; edges bumped. Fresh and clean. Good condition. (GER-43-59) ., Leipzig, J. A. Barth, 1931, NY: Alfred A. Knopf, Inc., 1999. First Edition. xii, 88pp. SIGNED BY AUTHOR to half-title page. " John Hollander (born October 29, 1929 in New York City) is an American poet and literary critic. As of 2005 he is Sterling Professor emeritus of English at Yale University. Previously he taught at Connecticut College, Hunter College, and the Graduate Center, CUNY. His first book of poems, A Crackling of Thorns, was chosen by W. H. Auden for the Yale Series of Young Poets in 1958. He was joint recipient of the 1983 Bollingen Prize for Powers of Thirteen. He held a MacArthur Fellowship from 1990. He is known also for his translations from Yiddish." - wikipedia. " In a major review in The New Republic of John Hollander's two earlier books, 'Tesserae' and 'Selected Poetry' (both 1993), Vernon Shetley said, "John Hollander's poetry has shown a visionary power just often enough to secure him a place as one of the major figures of our moment." 'Figurehead', a lively, varied, and technically dazzling book, confirms the statement made by Henry Taylor in the Washington Times: "John Hollander revels in technical challenges of unusual severity and complexity, yet most of his poems also have the emotional heft of something worth pausing over and remembering." One of the most gifted of W. H. Auden's choices for the Yale Series of Younger Poets, Hollander has pursued the wide range and metrical brilliance of Auden's own poetry, so that this new book exhibits both a large compass of subject matter (from philosophical matters to personal narrative) and, as usual, some astonishing meditations on paintings--here, by Charles Sheeler, Rene Magritte, and Edward Hopper. By turns witty, touching, profound, mocking, ingenious, and always clever, Hollander's poems are a joy for the reader. He is a modern master." - dust jacket flap. "Witty and highly interactive, these new poems in Hollander's 17th book of poetry recall the sumptuously inventive and playful work in two of his earlier books, Types of Shape (1969; Yale Univ., 1991. reprint) and Reflections on Espionage (LJ 4/15/76). All kinds of punning, visual and verbal, abound here, underscoring Hollander's theme of "double-dealings/ With ourselves." There is a long poem about hyper-realist Charles Sheeler's "The Artist Looks at Nature" (1943)?a poem about a painting that is itself about painting. Hollander even treats us to a retelling of Browning's "My Last Duchess." He delights in all kinds of rhymes and slant rhymes in the manner of Lewis Carroll or Gerard Manley Hopkins, like this sequence in "Getting from Here to There": "dawn, darn, dark, dirk, disk, dusk." Every poem is a "modeled fable/ of something occurring in the mind." " - Daniel L. Guillory, Library Journal.
