The made-up self : impersonation in the personal essay by Carl H Klaus( )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1,925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Finally, adding yet another layer to the made-up self, Klaus succumbs to his addiction to the personal essay by placing some of the different selves that various essayists have called forth in him within the essays that he has crafted so carefully for this book. Making his way from one essay to the next with a persona variously learned, whimsical, and poignant, he enacts the palimpsest of ways in which the made-up self comes to life in the work of a single essayist. Thus over the course of this highly original, beautifully structured study, the personal essay is revealed to be more complex than many readers have supposed. With its lively analyses and illuminating examples, The Made-Up Self will speak to anyone who wishes to understand - or to write - personal essays."--Pub. desc

Taking retirement : a beginner's diary by Carl H Klaus( Book )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the months approaching his retirement, writing instructor Carl Klaus felt increasing anxiety about what lay ahead. "Given such an unsettling state of mind, I decided to start keeping a diary, a diary that might help me work my way through the anguish and anxiety, through the bitter-sweet feelings, so that I could genuinely take retirement rather than feel as if it were taking me unawares."" "The result is this original and intimate account of a subject rarely explored in literary writing. With quiet courage, Klaus embarks upon the emotional work of retiring from a lifetime of teaching - a difficult task for someone whose sense of self is so strongly tied to his role as a mentor. Taking Retirement offers many charms: the lively give-and-take between Klaus and his witty wife, Kate; stories of how colleagues, neighbors, and relatives are handling retirement; and his chronicle of a revelatory trip to the Canadian and American Rockies."--Jacket
