"When John Muir died in 1914, the pre-eminent American naturalist, explorer, and conservationist had not yet written the second volume of his autobiography, in which he had planned to cover his Yosemite years, 1863 to 1875. Working with a variety of sources - Muir's letters, journals, articles, and unpublished manuscripts, as well as selections drawn from biographical pieces written about Muir by people who met him in Yosemite in the early 1870s - editors Engberg and Wesling have assembled what they term a "composite autobiography." They provide brief interpretive and transitional passages throughout the book and a short biographical/critical piece on Muir."--Jacket

Bakhtin and the social moorings of poetry by Donald Wesling( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book rescues Bakhtin from his overstatements concerning poetry, and gives the theoretical and practical basis for reading poems with the help of Bakhtin's categories of utterance, heteroglossia, and dialogue. In addition, through this rescue, the book offers a modest but strong foundation for a reading of poetry, and indeed of all literary texts, where a clash of social positions is fought out on the territory of the utterance. To find a believable poetics of social forms is the order of the day, and Donald Wesling's admiring and yet skeptical revision of Bakhtin will be part of the explanation we need."--Jacket
Joys and sorrows of imaginary persons : (on literary emotions) by Donald Wesling( Book )

7 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joys and Sorrows of Imaginary Persons is a literary approach to consciousness where Donald Wesling denies that emotion is the scandal or handmaid of reason - rather emotion is the co-creator with reason of human life in the world. Discoveries in neuro-science in the 1990s Decade of the Brain have proven that thinking and feeling are wrapped with each other, and regulate and fulfill each other. Accepting this co-creative equality, we reveal a new role for literature, or a traditional role we've repressed: literature as a set of processes in time where we've thought feeling through stories about the lives of imaginary persons. We need these stories in order to practice emotions for when we return to the world from reading. Donald Wesling argues that to be more accurate in our dealings with stories, we require a grammar of this new recognition, where we build up traditional stylistics by a more careful tracking of emotion-states as these are set into writing." "The first half of Joys and Sorrows of Imaginary Persons offers a creative stock-taking of the current state of scholarship on emotion, based on wide reading in several fields. The second half gives three focused studies, rich in examples, of emotion as cognition, as story, and as historical structure of feeling."--Jacket
