9 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 625 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this amazingly diverse new anthology, the eternal cat is captured in the prose and poetry of the world's finest writers from Aesop to Zola. Here are stories by European masters of the form - Balzac, Chekhov, Wodehouse, Saki, and Colette - along with such American masters as Edgar Allan Poe, Mark Twain, Damon Runyon, and Ernest Hemingway. The best in contemporary writing is well represented, too, by Joyce Carol Oates, James Herriot, Alice Adams, Angela Carter, and Ursula K. Le Guin, to name just a few. And the poets - from Keats and Emily Dickinson to Marianne Moore, Wallace Stevens, Elizabeth Bishop and, of course, Old Possum himself, T.S. Eliot. Finally, a wonderful group of pieces called "The Truth About Cats" collects the wisdom of the ages ranging from Herodotus to Benjamin Franklin to William Faulkner, with many a delightful digression along the way

Too far from home : the selected writings of Paul Bowles by Paul Bowles( Book )

13 editions published between 1992 and 2006 in English and held by 580 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paul Bowles is one of this century's most enigmatic and intriguing writers. Best known for his novel The Sheltering Sky, he has for over forty-five years worked in a variety of genres, writing novels, stories, travel accounts, essays, poetry, journals, and autobiography, each distinctively shaped by his arresting vision and style. Since 1947 he has lived as an American expatriate in Tangier, Morocco, and his groundbreaking work has formed an important departure point for an international array of writers - most notably the Beats, whose literature and lifestyle he influenced greatly. Long heralded as a writer's writer and once considered primarily a literary cult figure, Bowles has in recent years been recognized as an original - an enduring visionary whose stark, often violent tales and dispassionate objectivity prefigured and shaped much of our current literary landscape. This striking and comprehensive collection documents the range of his influence and highlights his remarkable virtuosity, what Joyce Carol Oates calls "the rich and unexpectedly variegated achievement of a major American writer." First published in 1949 and included here in its entirety, The Sheltering Sky established Bowles as one of the most singular and promising of an extraordinary post-war generation of writers. His first collection of stories, The Delicate Prey, published in 1950, solidified that reputation. Too Far from Home: The Selected Writing of Paul Bowles is a testament to how forcefully and brilliantly he delivered on that early promise. Taking its title from a new novella published here for the first time, this volume also brings together a dozen of Bowles's best stories; excerpts from his three other novels, Let It Come Down, The Spider's House, and Up Above the World; excerpts from Points in Time, Their Heads Are Green and Their Hands Are Blue, Days, and Without Stopping; as well as a group of poems, a selection of previously unpublished letters, and an interview conducted by Daniel Halpern. The result is the definitive Paul Bowles reader - a summing-up of the brilliant and diverse literary career that has spanned six decades

Reading the fights( Book )

4 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and held by 403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Who's writing this? : notations on the authorial I, with self portraits( Book )

5 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book includes over 50 essays, and the astounding variety and excellence of the group make for a remarkably complete statement on the difficulty, self-loathing, humor, courage, and inspiration involved with the creative process." "Such writers as John Fowles, John Updike, Margaret Atwood, James A. Michener, Susan Sontag, Darryl Pinckney, Alice Hoffman, Roy Blount Jr., Joyce Carol Oates and Arthur Miller cheerfully and skillfully reveal themselves, along with many others, using Borges' playful construct with surprisingly distinctive results." "In addition, the authors have accompanied their pieces with self-portraits, which range from cartoonist Ed Koren's zany figures to Helen Vendler's carefully traced hand, and include a variety of possibilities in between. It is rare that readers are given such privileged information (however tongue-in-cheek) about the identities of their favorite authors - still rarer to meet their personas in the same place."--Jacket

Something shining : new poems by Daniel Halpern( Book )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These poems explore relations between lovers, between friends, between fathers and children. Written by the light of a young daughter's presence these poems ponder the fading of the body and the struggle that consciousness wages to keep the self afloat. And into this intimate world also enter a surprising array of characters: ancient Chinese poets and modern Cuban musicians, Charlie Parker, Chekhov, and the dervish mystic Rumi. But it is the poet's awareness of his own frailty ("the days run out - no longer oneself," he writes in "Fugue"), that, together with the extraordinary beauty he discovers in environments familiar and exotic, unifies this collection."--Jacket

Holy fire : nine visionary poets and the quest for enlightenment( Book )

6 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since the beginning of time, poets have been absorbed by the quest for signs that our lives have greater spiritual significance than the simple sum of our labors on earth. The deceptive simplicity of the Sufi poet Rumi's musings, Romantic poet William Blake's riveting map of heaven and hell, the self-destructive Arthur Rimbaud's thirst for the extremes of human experience, and the sometimes ecstatic, often heartrending Celtic vision of William Butler Yeats, among others, attest to this enduring poetic search." "In Holy Fire, editor Daniel Halpern has collected the work of nine poets whose writing has shaped our modern view of the sacred. William Blake, Hart Crane, William Butler Yeats, Rainer Maria Rilke, Arthur Rimbaud, and Allen Ginsberg are included here, as well as lesser-known but equally important writers, such as Jelaluddin Rumi, the fourteenth-century Kashmiri poet Lalla, and the sixteenth-century Hindu mystic Mirabai."--Jacket
