I like these songs better than all the rest, and someday you will too, Franz Schubert told the friends who were the first to hear his song cycle, Winterreise. These lieder have always found admiring audiences, but the poetry he chose to set them to has been widely regarded as weak and trivial. In Retracing a Winter's Journey, Susan Youens looks not only at Schubert's music but at the poetry, drawn from the works of Wilhelm Müller, who once wrote in his diary, "perhaps there is a kindred spirit somewhere who will hear the tunes behind the words and give them back to me!" Youens maintains that Müller, in depicting the wanderings of the alienated lover, produced poetry that was simple but not simple-minded, poetry that embraced simplicity as part of its meaning. In her view, Müller used the ruder folk forms to give his verse greater immediacy, to convey more powerfully the wanderer's complex inner state. Youens addresses many different aspects of Winterreise: the cultural milieu to which it belonged, the genesis of both the poetry and the music, Schubert's transformation of poetic cycle into music, the philosophical dimension of the work, and its musical structure.
Can you recall the time, or times, you did something for Jesus because you felt convicted by His Spirit to do so? Something or some things that required you to take a leap of faith in God? Something that, when you started your walk of faith, took you a little out of your comfort zone? It took Dad a little bit out of his comfort zone when he felt God calling him to go to college to prepare for the gospel ministry. He didnt have enough money to pay for a college education; however, he believed with Gods help he could find a way to pay his bills. Dad enrolled as a student at William Jewell College in Liberty, Missouri, for the fall semester of 1941.

When Abraham Lincoln appointed William Dean Howells Consul to Venice, the young writer embarked on a journey that would leave an indelible impression on his life and work. Howells lived in Italy for four years, from 1861, during the pivotal and tumultuous period of Italian reunification. Italian Journeys, Howell's engrossing memoir of this time, describes his adventures across the country - from Genoa, a hotbed of nationalistic fervour and the city from which Garibaldi had led the Expedition of the Thousand only a year before; to the cultural and political powerhouse of Naples, which had only just become part of the Kingdom of Italy and from there to Rome, focus for the hopes of a fractured country. Travelling by land and sea, Howells was inspired at every turn - as much by the fevered events of the time as by the cultural and historical wealth of the country - and his beautifully-rendered portrait has become a classic of travel literature, essential for all those who, like him, have loved Italy.

A Bilingual Anthology of Contemporary Bolivian Poetry
Author: Ronald Haladyna
Publisher: Trafford Publishing
Category: Foreign Language Study
Andean Journeys: A Bilingual Anthology of Contemporary Bolivian Poetry is the fourth in a series of books that aspire to address a dearth of information in the English-speaking world about South American poetry of the past thirty years. The fourteen outstanding poets included here represent a diversity of themes, styles, and perspectives in one of South America's more marginalized nations. All of them have published extensively, have been recognized through literary awards and inclusion in national and international anthologies, and continue writing and publishing today. For readers unfamiliar with Bolivia, the introduction provides a brief background of its geography, history, politics, economy, and society. This is followed by an ample selection of representative poems published previously in Spanish, with translations in English on facing pages. The book concludes with a brief biographical sketch of each poet and an extensive bibliography of primary and secondary sources for readers wishing to pursue further reading or research. Contemporary Uruguayan Poetry: A Bilingual Anthology; Exotic Territory: A Bilingual Anthology of Contemporary Paraguayan Poetry; and Volcanic Reflections: A Bilingual Anthology of Contemporary Ecuadorian Poetry are companion volumes that offer similar exposure to poetry that deserves to be better known in the English-speaking world.
Memoir of Three Generations Self Love, Forgiveness, Reconnection
Author: Elizabeth Jacks Scott
Publisher: Xlibris Corporation
Category: Biography & Autobiography
In 1975, author Elizabeth Jacks Scott was a young matron from New York with a husband and two small children and the new owner of an old sail loft building in Tenants Harbor, Maine. It had been in her family for years, and it was filled with memories and history, six generations of them, a jumble of contradictory, conflictual, tragic, and happy memories. JOURNEY TO SAFE HARBOR covers three generations of a family where the personal and emotional sacrifices made in the name of mission, commitment and duty, aiming ‘to do good in the world’, ended with unintended tragic consequences for their children. It is about a professional family, educated, religious and idealistic, but did they understand love? Scott shares a narrative of her collected records, her experiences, and her journey. It narrates the saga of the origins of her family’s trauma in Tenants Harbor, how it played out in India and on the south side of Chicago. She toggles between Tenants Harbor, India and Chicago to show the interweaving of three eras and how they resulted in the family’s fragmentation and great tragedy. The memoir chronicles the journey of healing through the ups and down of life resulting in Scott, family and the community reconnecting. Elizabeth Jacks Scott taught American and World history for five years, practiced psychotherapy and family therapy in New York City for more than two decades, ran grief groups at St. Bartholomew’s Church for seven years, and cofounded Hudson Valley Weddings at The Hill. She is an ordained interfaith minister and a clinical social worker. Scott lives with her husband in New York City, the Hudson Valley, and the coast of Maine. Combined with her husband, they have four children and eight grandchildren.
