West of the American dream an encounter with Texas by Paul Christensen ( Book )
2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"West of the American Dream is a multifaceted account of the search. Christensen shares his feelings of culture shock in east-central Texas as he meets the cowboy version of the blue-collar Texan and his Mexican American neighbours. He introduces readers to the convoluted history of poetry in Texas, a tradition, started by women, that shifted from a focus on the land to the quotidian habits of urban living. Using a unique dissection of the public ritual of a poetry reading, Christensen assesses the origins of modern poetry, the value of imagination in modernist and postmodernist verse, and what Texas poets achieved and how their work evolved after World War II."--BOOK JACKET
Strangers in paradise a memoir of Provence by Paul Christensen ( )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Weaving a fascinating dialogue between the Old World as represented by Provence and the New World of the postmodern American university, this memoir describes in finely wrought detail a poet and critic of literary postmodernism moving his family to France and experiencing village life. Stories of amazing adjustments to a wildly different world are etched in beautiful prose, reading like a quest novel, a precise travelogue, an intense discourse on the visionary arts, and a rediscovery - if not reinvention - of the self as this contemporary American intellectual finds enlightenment in exile
