Truth & lies : an anthology of poems( Book )

2 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 950 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Experienced anthologist and teacher Patrice Vecchione has created a unique thematic anthology which teenagers will pore over as they seek to be true, and have to face telling lies. Drawing on poets from Margaret Atwood to Langston Hughes, from Walt Whitman to Yevgeny Yevtushenko, she shows how truth is necessary, but how it can hurt; how lies may kill, and yet can soothe. The poems touch on a range of motivations and emotions including fear, guilt, forgiveness, trust, pride and anger. Some express surprising truths while others reveal painful lies. A sensitive gift, a great classroom resource, a companion in the hardest struggles of adolescence, Truth and Lies will be a perfect bridge from a teenager's diary to the world's greatest poetry.--
Revenge and forgiveness : an anthology of poems( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 662 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A collection of nearly sixty poems dealing with revenge and forgiveness, plus suggested readings about each contributing poet. Revenge and forgiveness are two of the most prominent elements in the history of human interaction. With each generation, one or the other may seem to increase or diminish in importance, but across continents and centuries, the fierceness with which people long for both remains undiminished. Acclaimed anthologist and teacher Patrice Vecchione has put together an immensely powerful group of poems, gathered from different eras and cultures, all of which address the timeless and uniquely human desires for revenge and for forgiveness. "When you seek revenge, dig two graves."--Anonymous. A poetry anthology for teens on a perennially important topic. Acclaimed anthologist and teacher Patrice Vecchione has put together an immensely powerful group of poems, all of which address the timeless and uniquely human desires for revenge and for forgiveness. "The events of September 11th inspired this book. I wanted to create a tangible forum, a book to hold in our hands, to help frame and think not just about terrorism but about who we are as individuals and who we are as a country. It's been gestating in me for all this time. Finding these poems was like turning little lights on to illumine the dark. How can beauty be made out of ugliness and fear? Can it rise from ash?"-Patrice Vecchione

Step into nature : nurturing imagination and spirit in everyday life by Patrice Vecchione( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 74 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The natural world has inspired artists, seekers, and thinkers for millennia, but in recent times, as the pace of life has sped up, its demands have moved us in doors. Yet nature's capacity to lead us to important truths, to invigorate and restore our imagination and equilibrium, is infinite. Step Into Nature is a guide to make nature personal again, to stimulate awareness and increase our understanding of the environment while inspiring readers to develop and strengthen their imaginations. But being in nature doesn't mean flying off to remote, faraway places. Nature is as close as opening your front door--the sky above, the miniature gardens that insist their way up between the sidewalk cracks, the river just down the road. Patrice Vecchione shows readers how nature can support and enhance their own creative output, invigorate their curiosity, and restore their sense of connection to the earth. Plus, included in each chapter is "The Cabinet of Curiosities," exercises and suggestions for practical and unexpected ways that readers can stimulate their imaginations, deepen their relationships with nature, and experience the harmony between creativity and the natural world"--
