Captivity narrative by Mary Ann Samyn( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mary Ann Samyn bases the structure of her first full-length collection on early American captivity narratives, accounts written by women such as Mary Rowlandson and Mary Jemison, who were removed from their families and held as prisoners in the wilderness before being returned to "civilization." Samyn explores the themes of captivity, removal and return, and enchantment. She invites us into a world of wonder, giving voice to characters from carnivals and fairy tales: the Disappearing Girl, the Mesmerist, and Gretel. A series of Alice in Wonderland variations captures perfectly the mix of the mundane and the marvelous we would expect to hear from Alice."--Jacket

Purr by Mary Ann Samyn( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The texture and shape of the world, described so vividly as to bring eyesight to the blind. And the Eliotesque mutterings, the stage whispers, the blips of the overheard and the internal musings of the mind. Here is a poetry built of sensory data so sharply honed as to make even the mundane microfibre of the quotidian stone path a journey, a finding, a deep understanding of the world. And who couldn't love a book where Doris Day and Nancy Sinatra are as essential and as mysterious as saints? --D.A. Powell
