From the former U.S. Poet Laureate, Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winner, an illuminating dissection of poetic form for students, enthusiasts, and newcomers alike A Little Book on Form brilliantly synthesizes Hass’s formidable gifts as both a poet and essayist. In it he takes up the central tension between poetry as genre and the poetics of the imagination. A wealth of vocabulary exists with which to talk about poetry in traditional formal terms. But the more intuitive, creative parts of a poet’s work and processes are more elusive: if the most interesting aspect of form is the shaping power of the essential, expressive gestures inside it, how do we come to a language in which to speak about form as the search for the radiant shapes— the wholeness or brokenness—we experience inside powerful works of art? In suggestive, informal “notes,” Haas thinks through the idea of a poem from its barest building blocks—the one line haiku, the brief epigram or prayer—to the complex villanelle and sonnet, and beyond them, to the grand forms of elegy and ode through which poets across human cultures have investigated the shapes of grieving and desiring. His approach singularly employs postmodern perspectives on shape, thought, feeling, content, and movement, calling on Catullus and Allen Ginsberg, Kobayashi Issa and Czesław Miłosz. Begunb as a project for students of poetry, A Little Book on Form is anything but—Hass investigates the ancient roots of the poetic impulse, taking a wide-ranging look at the most intense experience of human thought and feeling in language.

The Little Book of Puns

In today's busy world, where text-speak seems to be the prevalent form of written English, and the average teenager can barely form a proper sentence without using the numbers '4' or '8' as substitutes for letters, is the pun becoming an endangered species? As a society we have come to regard wordplay as old-fashioned, obvious humour, because it hinges simply on one word having multiple definitions, spellings or sound-a-likes. It may not be controversial, edgy or even topical, but it actually takes a great deal of skill, wit and general knowledge to come up with a decent pun not everyone can do it. THE LITTLE BOOK OF PUNS explores the dying art of paronomasia and gives us a taste of the very best wordplay history has to offer. It harks back to the heady days when intelligence was measured at dinner parties rather than behind a school desk, when people still wrote letters instead of emails and actually read newspapers instead of checking out a website. This book may as well exist in anti gravity, because you ll find it almost impossible to put down!

'It is easier to complicate than to simplify' - this book takes up that challenge and aims to refine and clarify the theories in the original Results to produce a more succinct route to clarity and better results for the reader - because we all want to see results at home, at work and in life! Using transformational coaching techniques, examples, exercises and metaphors, Jamie talks the reader through the three key changes they need to achieve the results they are after and inspire others to do the same. Based on the principles of The Clarity Coaching Model, the reader will learn how to de-congest their mind to think more clearly, make better decisions and improve performance – achieving the ‘flow’ state attributed to the results of top-flight individuals. Clearer thinking removes the stress and anxiety from decision making and allows you to focus on your goals. Rather than a step-by-step process, the reader is encouraged to form a deep understanding of themselves to awaken their inner potential and improve their innate abilities including better listening, deeper connections, more motivation and greater innovation and creativity.

If you’re looking for a book which is fun and at the same time informative about Lancashire then this is the one for you. If you want to sit down and read it from cover to cover you will be fascinated by the things you did not know about this amazing part of England. On the other hand, if you just want something to dip into on the train or bus or to read for five minutes in bed before you fall asleep, this book will also do the job. Did you know for instance that in Wigan, Eccles cakes used to be called ‘slow walking cakes’ because they were offered to mourners at funerals? Or that that St Walburge’s Church in Preston was named after the Patron Saint of people suffering from rabies? Thought not.

Social media has reshaped our cultural landscape in more ways than we know, least of which is in the language we use to communicate with each other in both verbal and written form. Popular user-generated content sites like Urban Dictionary have sprung up to help catalog the ever-growing collection of terms of phrases that seem to spin off of each other and go in entirely new directions, and unite us around exactly what these words really mean and why and when they are to be used. As the parent of 14 and 11 year old daughters, Gen Z'ers who spend more than their fair share of time using their favorite social media apps, Scott Weiss decided it was time to call out some of the more popular terms and phrases he often hears his daughters using in book format, something parents like him could reference at a moment's notice, and thus, this pocketbook took form."WTF? The Little Handbook of Social Media Terminology" is the perfect gift for the person in your life that just doesn't get it: the mother or father that still thinks Facebook is cool, the grandparent who can't figure out how to turn their phone on and off, or the friend who needs to be "shook" a little bit.
