Thou Art That is a compilation of previously uncollected essays and lectures by Joseph Campbell that focus on the Judeo-Christian tradition. Campbell explores common religious symbols, reexamining and reinterpreting them in the context of his remarkable knowledge of world mythology. Campbell believed that society often confuses the literal and metaphorical interpretations of religious stories and symbols. In this collection, he eloquently reestablishes these symbols as a means to enhance spiritual understanding and mystical revelation. With characteristic verve, he ranges from rich storytelling to insightful comparative scholarship. Included is editor Eugene Kennedy's classic interview with Campbell in the New York Times Magazine, which originally brought the scholar to the attention of the public.

This book is about Laurel Keyes own experiences growing up on a high plains ranch, and stories of those family members, friends and neighbors from whom she learned decency, kindness, strength and character.Those pioneers could not have been plunged into a vast, rugged land of beauty and hardship without courage and drama having been a part of their lives, and often they held secrets which were revealed only through death.Laurel writes of rich and passionate stories of courage and hope in a most difficult and wonderful period of our history. She gives credit not only to the valiant spirit of the majority of the people, especially the women, who came West and lived here, but to help you recapture the feeling of the world they knewtheir sufferings and endurance, their humor and faith, the every-day living which brought people from oxen-drawn covered wagons to men on the moon in less than one century. The most incredible century in all history, the most discoveries, innovations, fantastic developments which we accept today as a springboard into an even greater futureâbegan with people such as these.
Running the gamut from traditional to radical forms, Timothy Liu’s sixth collection of poems, For Dust Thou Art, continues the trajectory of his previous books but extends his lyrical range. The centerpiece of the volume’s tripartite structure is a meditation on the events surrounding 9/11 and its aftermath. In his poems, Liu explores what a twenty-first century American “poetry of witness” might look like and protests the charge that the poetic generation to which Liu belongs is stymied by a kind of jaded amorality. Whether taking on public spectacle or contemplating the fallout of a private life, these meditations move forward and backward through time, seeking spiritual consolation within a material world.
