Ragas of longing : the poetry of Michael Ondaatje by Sam Solecki( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Ragas of Longing, Sam Solecki offers the first book-length study of Michael Ondaatje's poetry and its place within his overall body of work. Relating the poetry to various poetic traditions from classical Tamil to postmodern, Solecki presents a chronological critical reading of Ondaatje's six volumes of poems. Among the study's concerns are the relationship between the poet's life and work, his poetic debts and development, his theory of poetry, and his central themes. It also includes close readings of Ondaatje's monographs on Leonard Cohen and Edwin Muir, the Scots poet and critic."--Résumé de l'éditeur

The last Canadian poet : an essay on Al Purdy by Sam Solecki( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2008 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Last Canadian Poet Sam Solecki offers the first book-length study of the entire body of work of Al Purdy. This book takes into account not only Purdy's more than forty published books, but also the manuscripts from the Purdy archives at the University of Saskatchewan and Queen's University." "The Last Canadian Poet suggests that Purdy's work articulates a vision of Canada, both of what it is and of what it might be. It is a poetic vision of one man's encounter with his country and the world. Purdy's poems record his sense of being in the world as a Canadian, of being rooted in a particular landscape, way of life, and history. They also show the struggle for a Canadian poetics, a way of writing in what might be called the Canadian grain."--Jacket

A Truffaut notebook by Sam Solecki( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"François Truffaut (1932-1984) ranks among the greatest film directors and has had a worldwide impact on filmmaking as a screenwriter, producer, film critic, and founding member of the French New Wave. His most celebrated films include The 400 Blows, Shoot the Piano Player, Jules and Jim, Day for Night and The Last Metro. A Truffaut Notebook is a lively and eclectic introduction to the life and work of this major cinematic figure. In entries as brief as a page, as well as in full length essays, it examines topics such as Truffaut's mentors, the autobiographical nature of his films, his place in the film tradition, his film criticism, his reputation, his relationships with other directors, and the formal and thematic coherence of his body of work. Sam Solecki also argues for Truffaut's continuing wide appeal and relevance by examining his influence on filmmakers like Woody Allen, Noah Baumbach, Alexander Payne, Patrice Leconte, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet, and on writers such as Julian Barnes, Ann Beattie, and Salman Rushdie. Because the book returns regularly to the author's shifting responses to Truffaut's work over the last fifty years, it also offers an autobiographical meditation on his own lifelong fascination with film. Consisting of over eighty short entries and essays, as well as provocative lists, dreams, and quizzes, A Truffaut Notebook is an original and exciting text and a model of passionate engagement with cinema."--
