The way to the salt marsh : a John Hay reader by John Hay( )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the faraway nearby : Georgia O'Keeffe as icon( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has always been difficult to separate Georgia O'Keeffe's art and life from the powerful myths that grew around her. Many recognize her paintings of flowers or desert bones, or know some detail of her interesting life. From the Faraway Nearby attempts to separate O'Keeffe's art and her carefully-marketed public image from her closely-guarded private life. It is a composite biography of critical essays, memoirs, poetry, and photographs from twenty-two artists, writers (including Alan Cheuse and Terry Tempest Williams), and scholars who examine O'Keeffe's life from many different points of view. The first part of the book, "The Work," contains critical essays on various aspects of O'Keeffe's art and career. The second part, "The Woman," looks at the personal life of Georgia O'Keeffe through memoirs and reflections by people who knew her and whose lives were touched by her. The book is highlighted by stunning black-and-white portraits of O'Keeffe. Even though Georgia O'Keeffe died in 1986, the story of her fascinating life continues to unfold. From the Faraway Nearby captures the current position that the artist and her work hold in American culture

Song of myself : with a complete commentary by Walt Whitman( )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 309 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers the most comprehensive and detailed reading to date of Song of Myself. One of the most distinguished critics in Whitman Studies, Ed Folsom, and one of the nation's most prominent writers and literary figures, Christopher Merrill, carry on a dialog with Whitman, and with each other, section by section, as they invite readers to enter into the conversation about how the poem develops, moves, improvises, and surprises. Instead of picking and choosing particular passages to support a reading of the poem, Folsom and Merrill take Whitman at his word and interact with "every atom" of his work. The book presents Whitman's final version of the poem, arranged in fifty-two sections; each section is followed by Folsom's detailed critical examination of the passage, and then Merrill offers a poet's perspective, suggesting broader contexts for thinking about both the passage in question and the entire poem"--
