The bowmen of Shu by Guy Davenport( Book )

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The story is a collection of images and anecdotes having to do with Gaudier-Brzeska’s life before, as well as during, World War I. The twenty-three-year-old French sculptor, in whose work and intelligence the poet Ezra Pound discerned the signs of a twentieth century renaissance, has left his London studio for the trenches. Readers see him sleeping on mud and ice, fighting lustily, meditating on art, war, and nature, asking London correspondents about the art culture he is cut off from, and discussing labyrinths with the scholar and fellow soldier Robert de Launay. “The Bowmen of Shu” is named for a poem of the same title by Ezra Pound that Gaudier-Brzeska quotes in letters to friends in London. The poem presents the feelings of ancient Chinese warriors fighting a lingering war with a stubborn enemy. Their fight, like that of the soldiers of World War I, is a stalemate, with many battles fought but no victory. Gaudier-Brzeska savors the closeness of the centuries-old Chinese emotions to his own. The bowman who says, “Our sorrow is bitter, but we would not return to our country,” Gaudier-Brzeska echoes in a letter describing the surprising stoicism he feels about his most miserable circumstances: “Whatever the suffering may be it is soon forgotten and we want the victory.”--eNotes study guide

The cat inside by William S Burroughs( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There is an unexpected side to William Burroughs - the author of weird and disturbing fictions had a great fondness for cats. This is his earnest appreciation of the cats he knew, a record of his dreams of cats, and a meditation on the long, mysterious relationship between cats and their human hosts. In The Cat Inside, Burroughs is touching when writing of the many strays he took in over the years, disdainful of dogs ('self-righteous as a lynch mob'), always erudite and surprisingly caring - it is a genuine revelation, for Burroughs fans and cat lovers alike."--Book cover
