The white blackbird : a life of the painter Margarett Sargent by her granddaughter by Honor Moore( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and held by 663 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At the heart of Margarett Sargent's life lies a mystery, lost in silence. Why does a woman who has devoted herself to making art, stop? A marvelously gifted painter, Sargent spent much of her life smashing convention. She was born into stultifying privilege in the age of Edith Wharton, but sought another life - and as the American art world shuddered under the impact of Modernism, Margarett was hurling bright colors onto canvas, forging her own unique style. For a time, she seemed capable of everything: raising the ideal children, perfecting her art, hosting the most daring parties, conducting the most outrageous affairs, drinking more than anyone else. Whispered rumors and tales of her audacious wit trailed her from Brahmin Boston to New York to Paris. But drink was becoming her best companion; it smothered the awkward clashes between society wife and creative artist, and no one saw that the exuberant appetites of a charismatic woman concealed a creeping paralysis of will. When, after twenty years of successful exhibitions, it seemed she was finally to be accepted on her own terms as a painter, she chose to lay down her brushes

"A ... play about a family coming to terms with long held secrets.

The Stray Dog cabaret : a book of Russian poems( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the years before the 1917 Russian Revolution, the Stray Dog cabaret in St. Petersburg was the haunt of poets, artists, and musicians, a place to meet, drink, read, brawl, celebrate, and stage performances of all kinds. It has since become a symbol of the extraordinary literary ferment of that time. It was then that Alexander Blok composed his apocalyptic sequence "Twelve"; that the futurists Velimir Khlebnikov and Vladimir Mayakovsky exploded language into bold new forms; that the lapidary lyrics of Osip Mandelstam and plangent love poems of Anna Akhmatova saw the light; that the electrifying Marina Tsvetaeva stunned and dazzled everyone. Boris Pasternak was also of this company, putting together his great youthful hymn to nature, My Sister, Life." "It was a transforming moment - not just for Russian but for world poetry - and a short-lived one. Within little more than a decade, revolution and terror were to disperse, silence, and destroy almost all the poets of the Stray Dog cabaret."--Jacket
Women's liberation! : Feminist writings that inspired a revolution & still can( Book )

5 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Betty Friedan published The Feminine Mystique in 1963, the book exploded into women's consciousness. Before the decade was out, what had begun as a campaign for women's civil rights transformed into a diverse and revolutionary movement for freedom and social justice that challenged many aspects of everyday life long accepted as fixed: work, birth control and abortion, childcare and housework, gender, class, and race, art and literature, sexuality and identity, rape and domestic violence, sexual harassment, pornography, and more. This was the women's liberation movement, and writing--powerful, personal, and prophetic--was its beating heart. Fifty years on, in the age of #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, this visionary and radical writing is as relevant and urgently needed as ever, ready to inspire a new generation of feminists. Activists and writers Alix Kates Shulman and Honor Moore have gathered an unprecedented collection of works--many long out-of-print and hard to find--that catalyzed and propelled the women's liberation movement. Ranging from Friedan's Feminine Mystique to Backlash, Susan Faludi's Reagan-era requiem, and framed by Shulman and Moore with an introduction and headnotes that provide historical and personal context, the anthology reveals the crucial role of Black feminists and other women of color in a decades long mass movement that not only brought about fundamental changes in American life--changes too often taken for granted today--but envisioned a thoroughgoing revolution in society and consciousness still to be achieved."
Red shoes : poems by Honor Moore( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 269 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Red Shoes opens with an arrangement of sexy, almost surreal lyrics and continues in a sequence of extended dream-meditations - near poem, near lyric essay - that explores the terrain between sleep and waking, life and death. The final section of elegies moves between memory and grief, body and imagination, often in the rapid flash of a moment, sometimes in notation or narrative, or with photographic stillness. The poems are linked by images, and the sense of a story unfolding - a red bowl in one poem reappears in another with more of its attributes: the color red is carried through the collection."--Jacket

12 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When she becomes pregnant, Jhumur is shocked to discover that Haroon doesn't believe the baby is his. Overwhelmed by his mistrust, Jhumur plots her revenge in the arms of a handsome neighbor. Readers will be stunned by this tale of love, lust, and blood ties."--Publisher's website

Darling by Honor Moore( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 179 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The second collection from the poet Honor Moore, Darling is the kind of poetry that refuses to stay quiet, full of moments so gorgeous and brave you can't resist their power. From the very first pages, there is an inescapable intensity. Hard and melodic, chilly with loss and burning with sensual heat, Moore's words have a profound veracity as she takes on subjects such as longing, death, and sexual desire with a deeply passionate consciousness.<p/>Every poem in Darling is radiant with glassy precision. A woman's hair is the color of raw wood, a dead friend is remembered by how he placed objects in a room, two lovers "fall together like answers". Hers are effortless metaphors that pull at your breath, and her ease in conjuring them is simply stunning
Memoir : poems by Honor Moore( Book )

5 editions published between 1988 and 2019 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This first collection of poems by Honor Moore brings together such much-acclaimed poems as 'First Time 1950,' 'My Mother's Moustache' and 'Spuyten Duyvil.' Several of Memoir's twenty-five poems explore in richly personal terms such public issues as the nuclear threat, AIDS, the struggle for accommodation between the sexes, sexual abuse. All of the poems, in a style described by Marilyn Hacker as 'consummately textured, most elegant when most desperate, ' explore the turbulent course of love, including erotic, sensuous love as well as the many-layered attachments to family. June Jordan praises Honor Moore for being a poet 'who can boast, 'I am not afraid to begin to love or to keep loving'.'"

Blue in Chicago and other stories by Bette Howland( Book )

2 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Blue in Chicago collects together the sharp, bittersweet stories of Bette Howland and restores to our bookshelves an extraordinarily gifted writer, who was recognized as a major talent before all but disappearing from public view completely, until nearly the end of her life. Bette Howland was an outsider: an intellectual from a working-class neighborhood in Chicago; a divorcee and single mother, to the disapproval of her family; an artist chipped away at by poverty and perfection. Each of these sides of her life plays a shaping role in her work. Mining her most precarious struggles for her art in each of these stories, she chronicles the fears and hopes of her generation. Blue in Chicago, and other stories introduces UK readers to a wry, brilliant observer and a writer of great empathy and sly, joyous humor."--Provided by publisher
A story larger than my own : women writers look back on their lives and careers by Janet Burroway( )

1 edition published in 2021 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1955, Maxine Kumin submitted a poem to the Saturday Evening Post. "Lines on a Half-Painted House" made it into the magazine--but not before Kumin was asked to produce, via her husband's employer, verification that the poem was her original work. Kumin, who went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for poetry, was part of a groundbreaking generation of women writers who came of age during the midcentury feminist movement. By challenging the status quo and ultimately finding success for themselves, they paved the way for future generations of writers. In A Story Larger than My Own, Janet Burroway brings together Kumin, Julia Alvarez, Jane Smiley, Erica Jong, and fifteen other accomplished women of this generation to reflect on their writing lives. The essays and poems featured in this collection illustrate that even writers who achieve critical and commercial success experience a familiar pattern of highs and lows over the course of their careers. Along with success comes the pressure to sustain it, as well as a constant search for subject matter, all too frequent crises of confidence, the challenges of a changing publishing scene, and the difficulty of combining writing with the ordinary stuff of life--family, marriage, jobs. The contributors, all now over the age of sixty, also confront the effects of aging, with its paradoxical duality of new limitations and newfound freedom. Taken together, these stories offer advice from experience to writers at all stages of their careers and serve as a collective memoir of a truly remarkable generation of women
