The second half discusses more specifically recent manifestations of the imaginative mind in the music of Europe and the Americas.

"This memoir covers the most memorable ten years in the writer's life- from 1929, when Isherwood left England to spend a week in Berlin and decided to stay there indefinitely, to 1939 when he arrived in America. The author describes his life in gay Berlin of the 1930s and his struggles to save his companiion, a German man named Heinz, from the Nazis. An engrossing and dramatic story and a fascinating glimpse into a little-known world, this book remains one of Isherwood's greatest achievements."

At the end, the couple are left quiet and strong in their new house." -- Summarized by Edwin Denby (Copland's librettist for the 1937 high school opera The Second Hurricane) and as reported of the New York premiere in the Herald Tribune May 15, 1945

Houseboat days : poems by John Ashbery( Book )

1 edition published in 1977 in English and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is poetry the act of putting something together, or the art of taking something apart? Houseboat Days, one of John Ashbery's most celebrated collections, offers its own answer. Houseboat Days begins with the moving, unforgettable poem "Street Musicians", an allegory of artistic and personal loss that came ten years after the death of Ashbery's friend and fellow New York poet Frank O'Hara. But while many of the poems in Houseboat Days are strikingly personal, especially when compared to Ashbery's work from the 1950s and 1960s, the collection is less about the poet than about the act of writing poetry
