Summary

A magical, whimsical, and heart-soaring collection of angelic poetry from two award-winning literary masters Acclaimed novelist Nancy Willard and World Fantasy Award and Nebula Award–winning author and editor Jane Yolen collaborate on this magnificent anthology of their original poetry. For years the 2 friends and literary colleagues have shared a mutual fascination with God’s winged messengers and exchanged angel poems—some reverent, some witty, some sweet, some biting, and each one a miraculous invention. Now these wondrous flights of angelic fancy are gathered together in a singular collection of breathtaking verse.   Rooted in the Christian and Hebrew traditions, these brief, lyrical masterworks celebrate the heavenly beings that have flown through our collective imagination for centuries: Gabriel and the archangel Michael, the fallen Lucifer and the Angel of Death. In rich and sumptuous poetry, the authors muse on angels’ flight, feathers, faith, writing on pinheads, and the glory and inconvenience of having wings. To luxuriate in Yolen and Willard’s poetic words, ideas, and unforgettable images is to truly fly among angels.

    As a poetical movement Georgian Poetry is easy to classify.  It began naturally enough in 1910 when George V ascended to the throne of England.  Edward Marsh, a civil servant, polymath and arts patron decided that the verse of that time needed to be seen in its own right and from 1912 – 1922 set out to publish anthologies. Marsh agreed a deal with the poet and bookseller Harold Munro, who had recently opened The Poetry Bookshop in London’s Devonshire Street to publish the books in return for a share of the profits.   Five volumes spanning some forty poets ranging from Rupert Brooke to GK Chesterton and DH Lawrence were published over the years and remain today the encyclopaedia of this poetical period. Here, in Volume 1, the years 1911 - 1912 are covered.

    Captive Voices - New and...

    Over nearly fifty years, Eleanor Ross Taylor has established herself as one of the foremost southern poets of her generation. Captive Voices gathers selections from Taylor's five previous books along with a generous helping of new poems. Scintillating, unusual, passionate, and profound, the poems range from contemporary pieces about a bag lady on a bus, to historical pieces about settlers held hostage and a wartime nurse caring for British wounded, to intensely personal poems about her dislike for her grandmother and worries about her son. The title poem -- a real tour de force -- explores the notion of captivity on several levels as it speaks to the suffering we all endure, some of which is of our own making. Decidedly regional yet determinedly universal, the poems in this remarkable volume, along with a foreword by Ellen Bryant Voigt, attest to the singular talent of a woman justly described as "a poet of genius."

    “A pungent play of ideas with a big heart. Yellow Face brings to the national discussion about race a sense of humor a mile wide, an even-handed treatment and a hopeful, healing vision of a world that could be.”—Variety 
    “Charming, touching, and cunningly organized as well as funny, [with] an Ibsenite reach and stature far beyond any issues of Hwang’s self-image.”—The Village Voice 
    “It’s about our country, about public image, about face,” says David Henry Hwang about his latest work, a mock documentary that puts Hwang himself center stage as it explores both Asian identity as well as race in America. The play begins with the 1990s controversy over color-blind casting for Miss Saigon, before it spins into a comic fantasy, in which the character DHH pens a play in protest and then unwittingly casts a white actor as the Asian lead. Yellow Face also explores the real-life investigation of Hwang’s father, the first Asian American to own a federally chartered bank, and the espionage charges against physicist Wen Ho Lee. Adroitly combining the light touch of comedy with weighty political and emotional issues, “Hwang’s lively and provocative cultural self-portrait lets nobody off the hook” (The New York Times). 
    David Henry Hwang is the author of the Tony Award–winning M. Butterfly, a finalist for the 1988 Pulitzer Prize. Other plays include Golden Child, FOB, The Dance and the Railroad, and Family Devotions; his opera libretti include three works for composer Philip Glass. He was appointed by President Clinton to the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities.
