"One: I am a Welshman; two: I am a drunkard; three: I am a lover of the human race, especially of women." This penetrating study uses photographs of Dylan Thomas, his family, friends, and environment, to explore the poet's Welsh identity and its influence on his work. Welsh Dylan surveys Thomas's background, upbringing and life in Wales, and discusses the distinctively Welsh flavour of the Swansea stories, his Laugharne-indluenced later poetry, and the warm, gossiping village life that informs perhaps his most famous work, "Under Milk Wood." From Cwmdonkin Park and Fern Hill to Ann Jones and Caitlin Thomas; from the Boat House and New Quay to Vernon Watkins and Florence Thomas, Ackerman's verdict is that Welshness is absolutely central to one of the century's great writers. John Ackerman's introduction considers his recent research into Thomas' politics-a further result of his Welsh background-while Dylan Thomas's daughter Aeron recalls her childhood in Laugharne in a fascinating foreword. - Publisher

The public work of rhetoric : citizen-scholars and civic engagement by John Ackerman( Book )

10 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Public Work of Rhetoric presents the art of rhetorical techné as a contemporary praxis for civic engagement and social change, which is necessarily inclusive of people inside and outside the academy. In this provocative call to action, editors John M. Ackerman and David J. Coogan, along with seventeen other accomplished contributors, offer case studies and criticism on the rhetorical practices of citizen-scholars pursuing democratic ideals in diverse civic communities—with partnerships across a range of media, institutions, exigencies, and discourses. Challenging conventional research methodologies and the traditional insularity of higher education, these essays argue that civic engagement as a rhetorical act requires critical attention to our notoriously veiled identity in public life, to our uneasy affiliation with democracy as a public virtue, and to the transcendent powers of discourse and ideology. This can be accomplished, the contributors argue, by building on the compatible traditions of materialist rhetoric and community literacy, two vestiges of rhetoric's dual citizenship in the fields of communication and English. This approach expresses a collective desire in rhetoric for more politically responsive scholarship, more visible impact in public life, and more access to the critical spaces between universities and their communities

This book examines the process of reading (when one's purpose is to create a text of one's own) and writing (which includes a response to the work of others). This is a central process in most college work and at the heart of critical literacy. The study observed students in the transition from high school to college, and in the process of trying to enter the community of academic discourse. The study draws on the methods of textual analysis, teacher evaluation, and interviews to examine students' writing and revising
