6 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Collected Poems of Philip Lamantia represents the lifework of the most visionary poet of the American postwar generation. Philip Lamantia (1927-2005) played a major role in shaping the poetics of both the Beat and the Surrealist movements in the United States. First mentored by the San Francisco poet Kenneth Rexroth, the teenage Lamantia also came to the attention of the French Surrealist leader Andre Breton, who, after reading Lamantia's youthful work, hailed him as a "voice that rises once in a hundred years." Later, Lamantia went "on the road" with Jack Kerouac and shared the stage with Allen Ginsberg at the famous Six Gallery reading in San Francisco, where Ginsburg first read "Howl." Throughout his life, Lamantia sought to extend and renew the visionary tradition of Romanticism in a distinctly American vernacular, drawing on mystical lore and drug experience in the process. The Collected Poems gathers not only his published work but also an extensive selection of unpublished or uncollected work; the editors have also provided a biographical introduction."--

Dying with dignity : a plea for personal responsibility by Hans Küng( Book )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This important book arose out of a series of discussions on voluntary euthanasia held at the University of Tubingen at the end of 1994. In it a distinguished theologian and a distinguished literary critic examine the case for voluntary euthanasia in certain well-defined circumstances and come down firmly in favour of it." "First, Hans Kung argues passionately for help in dying to be allowed in certain cases. He looks in depth at questions of life and death and at the arguments for and against euthanasia, in terms of the very nature of life, human responsibility, the theological position over euthanasia, and the hope that Christians have about what men and women die into. Then Walter Jens shows how modern literature in particular, both fiction from Tolstoy to Philip Roth and Carson McCullers, and Sherwin T. Nulands best-selling How We Die have illuminated the process of dying and also help to shed light on the question of euthanasia. Dietrich Niethammer, a medical doctor, and Albin Eser, a doctor of law, both add comments from their perspectives and the book ends with a discussion of the points made." "In an epilogue written specially for the English language edition, Hans Kung relates the position of the book to Evangelium vitae, the most recent papal encyclical on moral issues."--BOOK JACKET
