"One of the most promising young poet-critics in America" (Los Angeles Times) examines a revolutionary generation of poets. Robert Lowell, Elizabeth Bishop, Sylvia Plath, John Berryman, Randall Jarrell, and Delmore Schwartz formed one of the great constellations of talent in American literature. In the decades after World War II, they changed American poetry forever by putting themselves at risk in their poems in a new and provocative way. Their daring work helped to inspire the popular style of poetry now known as "confessional." But partly as a result of their openness, they have become better known for their tumultuous lives—afflicted by mental illness, alcoholism, and suicide—than for their work. This book reclaims their achievement by offering critical "biographies of the poetry"—tracing the development of each poet's work, exploring their major themes and techniques, and examining how they transformed life into art. An ideal introduction for readers coming to these major American poets for the first time, it will also help veteran readers to appreciate their work in a new light.

The Confessions of a Girl trio of erotic novellas will immerse you in a sexy and stimulating world that you can't wait to explore. Sassy, seductive and firmly embracing every girl's right to fantasise and experiment with her sexuality, these books reveal what really turns a girl on (and for that reason alone, men will love them too!). Toni has made a decision to get serious. She has reached a point in her life where she must either follow her passions or get left behind, and so she has gathered her courage and moved to London to follow her dream of becoming an actress. She begins taking evening classes to hone her craft and walks headfirst into a situation more intriguing than anything she could ever have imagined. Her acting teacher and mentor, Marcus, sees Toni's unique potential amongst a class of average students. He singles her out for an assignment, in which he provides her with scenarios designed to assist with her acting. She must act out these scenarios outside the class and record them in a diary for her tutor to assess. As the exercise continues, however, Marcus' attraction to Toni becomes more than just professional, and student and teacher become involved in a tense erotic game in which the lines between acting and reality become increasingly blurred.

Confessions of a Split Mind is a compendium of selected drawings, philosophical dialogues, and two myths from Kiritsiss personal journal. Collectively, they capture an internal conflict between differing aspects of the conceptual self, which plays out in every one of us. For the author, this phenomenon takes the form of an ongoing war between science and esoteric spirituality. In the authors idiosyncratic inner world, the former discipline is personified by a male character known as the Unknown Pilot and the latter by a female character, Solim. The integrated conscious self also appears in the guise of a character named Olyn. These three entities bide their time grappling with the big questions in life and arguing over the veracity of existing interpretations: Is it possible to explain genius-level creativity through contemporary scientific models? What exactly are the voices that psychosis sufferers hear? What is precognition, and what does it mean for a linear, materialistic model of the universe? Does free will exist? Have we underestimated the powers of the placebo and the mind? How much do we really know about the brain? Is it really like a computer as computational and connectionist models would have us believe? How therapeutic are creative pursuits? Does anything survive the death of the human body? Each chapter deals with a different topic and is illustrated by thematic drawings. Many of the conundrums and life mysteries expounded in the broader narrative are represented visually in a separate section in the middle of the book, entitled Interlude: A Journey through the Split Mind. The book begins and ends with the narration of personal myths whose purpose is to convey images of an ostensibly paradoxical world as it would appear to our logical operative cognition and the eitheror logic we pride ourselves on, hold aloft, and deem infallible.

In this technologically adventurous book, Lewis Branscomb-- distinguished physicist who once headed the National Bureau of Standards and later was IBM's Chief Scientist--explores the "wise and creative" uses of our nation's science, from the boundless faith in science after the Second World War, into the age of technology, which, says Branscomb, "is an expression of the values of the society that creates and uses it." Branscomb examines emerging information technologies--computer software, electronic libraries, video disks, and the information "superhighway"--always exploring the way people are affected. Here readers can share his vision of how we can use both science and politics to improve the prospects for humankind.

"Luqman's commitment to his dreams and ideals are intense and boldly honest. His focus is on his search and discovery of universal truth. Here, he offers a glimpse into the reality that all answers come from within; and each man (person) must connect to his or her own spirit in honesty and with an open mind in order to hear them. Hollywood is a fantasy that, if we allow it, can distract from the great creative medium that is within all of us to build for ourselves. In the footsteps of Luqman, (moving in his own footsteps, as with each of us) lies even greater hope and truth."

"Different and the same; we are leaves without grass, trying to unite ourselves and others." So opens "Confessions of an American," a set of poetic snapshots and other profound moments in the interconnected lives of three families as they struggle to find the new American Dream. A priest cannot choose between love of humanity and love of God; a doctor tries to triumph over oppression and racism to bring light into the world; a politician questions civic duty, morality, and values; a musician externalizes depression through her art- these are just some of the characters you'll encounter in the novel. "Confessions of an American" presents us with ambivalent people asking for forgiveness, hope, and freedom, which leads us to question what it is to be an American in this constantly changing world.

Confessions of a Recovering Fundamentalist

Can theology be expounded almost entirely in jokes? This is an attempt to do so. But it is also a record of how one person recovered from fundamentalism, and found a different, more positive spirituality within Christian faith. It seeks to speak to those who only know an exclusive and dogmatic version of Christianity, and who feel the need for something more universally compassionate and friendly to informed scientific thought. Ward argues that we need to escape from the image of a vindictive, wrathful, judgmental God, who saves just a few people from endless torture for no obvious reason. He proposes instead a view of the universe as evolving towards a goal, guided by a supreme cosmic consciousness, which manifests its nature in this historical process. Jesus is the human image of this consciousness, an image of universal self-giving love and a foreshadowing of the transformation of human lives by their union with the divine. The jokes are there because Christian faith should be really joyful, hopeful, and positive good news for everyone—that there is a spiritual basis and goal of the universe which wills everyone without exception to share in its unlimited wisdom and love.
