The flower of youth : Pier Paolo Pasolini poems by Mary Di Michele( )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poems in The Flower of Youth depict the coming of age and into sexual difference of the great writer and film director, Pier Paolo Pasolini. The time of this story is World War II; the place is German-occupied northern Italy. Unlike his younger brother, Guido, who took up arms to fight in the resistance, Pasolini chose to help his mother set up a school for the boys, mostly sons of farmers, too young to fight or be conscripted. The situation ignited an internal war that nearly eclipsed the historical moment for the young Pasolini, a battle within between his desire for boys and his Catholic faith and culture. The book is a kind of novel in verse including a prologue and epilogue that details di Michele's search for Pasolini, her pilgrimage to the place and research into the time that shaped him as a man and as an artist

Bicycle thieves by Mary Di Michele( )

9 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Referencing the post-war neorealist film by Vittorio De Sica, Mary di Michele's Bicycle Thieves commemorates her Italian past and her life in Canada through elegy and acts of translation of text and of self. The collection opens with a kind of hymn to life on the planet, sung from the peak of that urban island, Montreal - an attempt to see beyond death. The book moves into a sequence of poems described by Sharon Thesen as the poet "envisioning the passage of time under the 'full and waning' moon of Mount Royal's beacon cross, recalling her Italian immigrant parents in Toronto and her current life in Montreal [. . .] a sort of Decameron." Thesen's description is apt for the collection as a whole, which moves into the poet's autobiography - in search of catharsis through literature - and pays tributes to poets who have been part of the literary landscape di Michele now inhabits. Bicycle Thieves is poetry as time machine, transcending the borders between life and death, language and culture."--

This is a first novel for Mary di Michele, internationally recognized for her five books of lyric and narrative poetry.

This is a book that will disturb and move the reader; its intellectual and poetic content will delight those who enjoy a thought-provoking read. It is also a true psychological thriller: once you become involved in these lives, you won't want to stop until the very last page

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Launched in 2009 on St. Jean Baptiste Day, Poetry Quebec was an online magazine dedicated to showcasing the English-language poets and poetry of "la belle province." Its founding editors and publishers--poets themselves--came from very different backgrounds but shared the desire to make sure the English-language poetry of Quebec got the attention it deserved. In this book, some of the best and most innovative English-language poets of Canada--rising stars and award-winning authors--reflect on these and other questions of politics and poetics. Culled from the website and expanded for this publication, those interviewed include Erín Moure and Stephanie Bolster (winners, Governor General's Award); GG nominee David McGimpsey; Trillium Prize nominee Mary di Michele; Susan Gillis and Gabe Foreman (winners, A.M. Klein Poetry Prize), Carolyn Marie Souaid and Endre Farkas (winners, Zebra International Poetry Film Festival, Berlin); performance poets Catherine Kidd, Moe Clark and kaie kellough; and Rhodes scholar Mark Abley--all contemplating the work they do against the backdrop of this interesting place and time."--Publisher website

Outside university walls : Alexandra David-Neel's influence in developing the field of Buddhist studies by Mary Di Michele( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The thesis of this dissertation is that David-Neel should be recognized as an educator who occupied a position as an independent writer outside university walls at the beginning of the field of Buddhist studies. She was a bridge between academic and popular education through her lectures, articles, and books about comparative religion in Asian cultures. She stimulated the interest and curiosity of the Western public in spiritual ways of knowing, in Buddhism as a viable way of life, in Tibet as a country, and in Tibetans as a unique ethnic group. The Fourteenth Dalai Lama credited David-Neel with "preserving" the Tibetan culture as it existed before the Chinese invasion through photographs and descriptions of the Tibetan people based upon her own experiences
