A Dictionary of Literary SymbolsCambridge University Press. 2017
This is an expansion of the first dictionary of symbols to be based on literature, rather than on 'universal' psychological archetypes or myths. It explains and illustrates the literary symbols that we frequently encounter (such as swan, rose, moon, gold) and gives thousands of cross-references and quotations. The dictionary concentrates on English literature, but its entries range widely from the Bible and classical authors to the twentieth century, taking in American and European literatures. For this third edition, Michael Ferber has included some twenty completely new entries (such as birch, childbirth, grove, mill and railroad) and has added to many of the existing entries. Its rich references make this book an essential tool not only for literary and classical scholars but also for all students of literature.
To Have and to HoldAegitas. 2016
To Have and to Hold (1899) is a novel by American author Mary Johnston. It was the bestselling novel in the United States in the following year (1900). To Have and to Hold is the story of an English soldier, Ralph Percy, turned Virginian explorer iIPn colonial Jamestown. Ralph buys a wife for himself - a girl named Jocelyn Leigh - little knowing that she is the escaping ward of King James I, fleeing a forced marriage to Lord Carnal. Jocelyn hardly loves Ralph - indeed, she seems to abhor him. Carnal, Jocelyn's husband-to-be, eventually comes to Jamestown, unaware that Ralph Percy and Jocelyn Leigh are man and wife. Lord Carnal attempts to kidnap Jocelyn several times and eventually follows Ralph, Jocelyn, and their two companions - Jeremy Sparrow, the Separatist minister, and Diccon, Ralph's servant - as they escape from the King's orders to arrest Ralph and carry Jocelyn back to England. The boat they are in, however, crashes on a desert island, but they are accosted by pirates, who, after a short struggle, agree to take Ralph as their captain, after he pretends to be the pirate "Kirby". The pirates gleefully play on with Ralph's masquerade, until he refuses to allow them to rape and pillage those aboard Spanish ships. The play is up when the pirates see an English ship off the coast of Florida. Ralph refuses to fire upon it, knowing it carries the new Virginian governor, Sir Francis Wyatt, but the pirates open fire, and Jeremy Sparrow, before the English ship can be destroyed, purposefully crashes the ship into a reef. The pirates are all killed, but the Englishmen (and woman) are rescued by the Governor's ship.
The Secret Lives of MenScribe Publications. 2018
In these thirteen short stories, Georgia Blain examines human nature in all its richness: out motivations, out desires and our shortcomings. The men in these tales frequently linger at the edges - their longings and failures exerting a subterranean pull on the women in their lives. In 'The Secret Lives of Men', a woman revisits her hometown and learns a long-held secret about her first boyfriend. In 'The Bad dog Park', a man's devotion to his dog ultimately forces him to confront his true hopes and fears. And in 'The Other Side of the River', we watch as a woman makes a snap decision about her life's future direction, with devastating consequences for her family. Written in Blain's trademark unadorned yet powerful prose, these stories resonate long after they are finished.'A haunting, unsentimental exploration of the vexations and joys of modern life, family, love and desire.' Kirsten TranterThe Secret Live of Men is an exceptional collection by one of Australia's leading writers.
With Walt Whitman in CamdenSIU Press. 1992
This is the seventh volume of the daily record, over the last four years of Walt Whitman’s life, of his conversations with his young friend and literary executor Horace Traubel. Traubel managed Whitman’s literary and personal affairs and assisted him in the preparation for publication of the final (Deathbed) edition of Leaves of Grass. Each evening he wrote down a brief description of how Whitman appeared to him that day and then recorded all the snatches of conversation that he remembered. The sheer consistency of Traubel’s effort is perhaps without precedent in all of literature. His narrative is not only a record of Whitman’s anecdotes and conversation on a wide variety of topics but also the opportunity to witness, as Traubel witnessed, a personal life. These entries offer a picture of Walt Whitman—with all his keen insights, day-to-day labors, and physical troubles—that is more complete and revealing than any of the numerous studies written on the man.
