A lost lady by Willa Cather( Book )

1 edition published in 1923 in English and held by 1,319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written from the perspective of a male narrator, Willa Cather's classic novel is an American version of "Madame Bovary". It is a portrait of a talented woman trapped in the conventions and economic restraints of a marriage. It is the story of a woman who defies expectations, and whose personal changes coincide with the transforming American Frontier. In this work, Willa Cather expressed her profoundly modern feminist views in the life of an ordinary and gifted woman who is stifled by marriage."--Ingram

The necessary angel : essays on reality and the imagination by Wallace Stevens( Book )

1 edition published in 1951 in English and held by 679 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Necessary Angel by Wallace Stevens "In this book, the first collection of his prose works, he accounts in scintillating language for the peculiarly modern and sometimes deliquescent fervor that has prompted his poems. Few poets have written so characteristically about their own craft." 'Perspective'U.S.A. "These are rich essays, simply constructed yet richly and elegantly written." 'Hayden Carruth, The Nation "The most welcome attribute of the book is its humane good sense, equally manifest whether Stevens is discussing a desolate Pennsylvania churchyard. Plato's images or the personalities of those who prefer a drizzle in Venice to a hard rain in Hartford.' 'New Republic "It is a rare pleasure to breathe the atmosphere of confidence and wholeness which distinguishes the world of Wallace Stevens. Here we are refreshed by certainty without fragmentariness, by joyous possibilities without dishonesty. Here we find a moral and philosophical center through which reality may be repossessed and re-created with each new poetic act." 'C. Roland Wagner, The Hudson Revie

No man knows my history : the life of Joseph Smith, the Mormon prophet by Fawn McKay Brodie( Book )

1 edition published in 1945 in English and held by 458 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This highly praised biography, revised and enlarged with new material, takes its title from a half-defiant, half-wistful pronouncement Joseph Smith himself made toward the close of the short, tragic melodrama that was his life. But the reader is made to know him fully--the man, the world from which he came, his extraordinary impact. His biographer, herself steeped in Mormon lore since her Utah childhood, performed feats of painstaking research--through the files of country newspapers, obscure court records, countless thickets of local documents and memories. The result is a concrete narrative of Smith's life from his boyhood and young manhood to his violent end. Mrs. Brodie throws light also on the literary influences that inspired and colored the Book of Mormon and the theological structure of the religion founded on it. Beyond its vivid portrayal of the Mormon Prophet, this is a history of the early days of the Mormon Church.--From publisher description
