7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each essay has a different scope and emphasis within the apparently limitless range of possibilities. Nelson's arrangement of the essays is chronological, though only roughly so; many issues and examples could be explored in other contexts. Yet there is a presiding view of literature that is commonly designated as comparative, stressing some degree of universality: poets happily transgress frontiers and barriers; one tradition absorbs others in its own way, as in the poetries of Roman and medieval Latin, the Provensals, Petrarch and Petrarchism, Symbolism, and Modernism. Nelson observes only one restriction. He concentrates on lyric poetry, although much that he examines can be applied to other forms

Rural Cuba by Lowry Nelson( Book )

Rural Cuba was first published in 1950. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions. Impoverished people in a rich landthat is the paradox of Cuba described with thorough documentation by Lowry Nelson, passed professor of sociology at the University of Minnesota. Professor Nelson studied rural Cuba's problems for a year during his appointment as rural sociologist for the U.S. Department of State. With the cooperation of the Cuban government, Professor Nelson directed a series of detailed sociological surveys of representative rural districts. Data were gathered in these surveys on the family habits, agricultural methods, farm tenure, income, educational opportunities, social activities, and level of living of more than 700 rural Cuban families. This material is combined with historical background, census analyses, and on-the-spot observations for a comprehensive study that fills a gap in the available literature on the subject. The volume includes appendixes providing a description of the geography of the survey area and a verbatim sample report of a survey interviewer, together with a glossary of Spanish words, a bibliography, and tables. In this book rural Cuba's problems are thoroughly discussed, present-day progress toward their solution is reported, and suggestions are offered for future agricultural policies that could help enrich the lives of Cuba's people
