Critical survey of poetry( )

Book News eschews gushing, but this is an incredible reference work at a reasonable price. It is cited in Guide to Reference Books and is suitable for high school and university libraries. The new edition has 20 percent new material, 20 percent revised, and some 740 heavily revised or new essay-bibliographies. It combines published essays in the Critical Survey of Poetry from the Foreign Language Series (1984), the Supplement (1987), and the English Language Series, Revised Edition (1992), and includes 117 poets not previously covered. Poets range from the classic tradition (Ovid and Pindar) to the contemporary era (Li-Young Lee and Martin Espada). Of the 698 poets, there are 301 reflecting a diverse US populace, 195 anglophones from other nations, and the rest from all over the globe. Poet-essays in volumes 1-7 are 2,000 words or longer. Volume 8 contains 700 pages of essays on seven strands of criticism and theory, 45 poetries from around the world (e.g. Croatian, Tibetan, and English by century), research tools (awards, poetical terms, chronology etc.), and indexes (geography, category, and subject).

Don't wave goodbye : the children's flight from Nazi persecution to American freedom( Book )

3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 480 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sent across the ocean by their parents and taken in by foster parents and distant relatives, approximately 1,000 children, ranging in age from fourteen months to sixteen years, landed in the United States and out of Hitler's reach between 1934 and 1945. Seventy years after the first ship brought a handful of these children to American shores, the general public and many of the children themselves remain unaware of these rescues, and the fact that they were accomplished despite powerful forces in and outside the government that did not want them to occur. This is the first published account, told in the words of the children and their rescuers, to detail this unknown part of America's response to the Holocaust. It will challenge the belief that Americans did nothing to directly and actively save Holocaust victims." "Judith Tydor Baumel, Holocaust scholar and sister of two rescued children, provides an introduction explaining why, when, how, and where the rescues were carried out, who the heroes and heroines were, and which individuals and organizations placed almost insurmountable obstacles in their path. This account presents both recollections and experiences recorded at the time of the rescued children, their descendants, and their rescuers."--Jacket
