The poetry reflects her sense of the rhythm and flow of the topic. The form of the poem also is a reflection of its meaning. Each poem is unique on its own merit. Some poems rhyme; some use a recurring line or lines. Most are free verse and have their own musical flow. “The Time Was November” uses rhyme and this recurring line.

Anthony C. Yu’s translation of The Journey to the West,initially published in 1983, introduced English-speaking audiences to the classic Chinese novel in its entirety for the first time. Written in the sixteenth century, The Journey to the West tells the story of the fourteen-year pilgrimage of the monk Xuanzang, one of China’s most famous religious heroes, and his three supernatural disciples, in search of Buddhist scriptures. Throughout his journey, Xuanzang fights demons who wish to eat him, communes with spirits, and traverses a land riddled with a multitude of obstacles, both real and fantastical. An adventure rich with danger and excitement, this seminal work of the Chinese literary canonis by turns allegory, satire, and fantasy. With over a hundred chapters written in both prose and poetry, The Journey to the West has always been a complicated and difficult text to render in English while preserving the lyricism of its language and the content of its plot. But Yu has successfully taken on the task, and in this new edition he has made his translations even more accurate and accessible. The explanatory notes are updated and augmented, and Yu has added new material to his introduction, based on his original research as well as on the newest literary criticism and scholarship on Chinese religious traditions. He has also modernized the transliterations included in each volume, using the now-standard Hanyu Pinyin romanization system. Perhaps most important, Yu has made changes to the translation itself in order to make it as precise as possible. One of the great works of Chinese literature, The Journey to the West is not only invaluable to scholars of Eastern religion and literature, but, in Yu’s elegant rendering, also a delight for any reader.

The essays in this book, groundbreaking for its focus on teaching Latin American poetry, reflect the region's geographic and cultural heterogeneity. They address works from Mexico, Chile, Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, Cuba, Brazil, Argentina, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and Uruguay, as well as from indigenous communities found within these national distinctions, including the Kaqchikel Maya and Zapotec. The volume's essays help instructors teach poetry written from the second half of the twentieth century on, meaningfully connecting this contemporary corpus with older poetic traditions. Contributors address teaching various topics, from the silva and the long poem to Afro-descendant poetry, in ways that bring performance, digital approaches, queer theory, and translation into action. The insights offered here will demonstrate how Latin American poetry can become a part of classes in African diasporic studies, indigenous studies, history, and anthropology.

Global Warming. Rising Oceans. Population Explosion. Hunger. Rise in Crime. Strange Diseases. Where is this planet headed? What is in store for us, for our children, or for future generations? When standing at the check-out counter of any grocery or convenience stores, one cannot help but wonder as you read the headlines of the magazines for sale. Titles like, World Will End Soon, Giant Asteroid on Collision Course with Earth, Are There Intelligent Beings in Other Galaxies? People purchase these magazines or stand and read them while waiting to go through the check-out. They are interested in what the future holds. Along with the interest in the unknown, people are also concerned with the terms that psychics and prophets use in their predictions, like 666, The Millennium, Christ's Return, Life on the Other Side of Death, The End of the World, 144,000, and the Mark of the Beast. What do they all mean? As you relax with this book on the subway, the airplane, or by the fireplace, you will find answers to these and many other questions you may have, as you Journey Into Time!

What motivated/inspired you to write this book? Reflecting on the diverse experiences of life: a grand marriage; foreign travel – we’ve lived in Paris, Florence, and southern Spain; teaching, painting, raising children, gardening, and practicing classical music; writing books on history, a novel, etc.; it struck me that my life has not only contained much art and striving for knowledge, but it has given me much to remember, to engage with, both with myself and my loved ones about our past, our present, and future. Even streams store much along their banks, create sheltered coves and marshes, and, in a figurative sense, after resting, continue to make progress. This collection of 115 poems draws on many themes, including: hope, famous literature (novelists, poets), ageing, romantic love, philosophers, ethics, protest, marriage, natural beauty, childhood, education, ekphrastic poetry, and poetics. This book is largely autobiographical. I seem to be piecing out my life like a colorful “quilt,” a pattern not found in quilting books, but recognizable by others. Sharing one’s life is another form of teaching, and I always thought that a noble profession. I have found no real obstacles, since I regard life’s lessons very similar to those we teachers teach our students, using history or literature for material. I accumulated this material through conscious living, long years of studying literature, history and several foreign languages, reflecting on the diverse experiences of life. I usually write at night. I think of an object or experience, reach for my pen and paper, and the poem emerges: sometimes in as little as five minutes. “Streaming consciousness,” a term recognized since the mid-l9th century, was defined as an interior monologue or unedited continuous chronological flow of the mind’s conscious experience. The author regards these pieces as edited interior dialogues, for a monologue would not produce such varying perspectives. But stream these poems do, as do thoughts, actions, memories. The reader will note that many describe the “lives” of rivulets, streams, and rivers, and how they affect the poet before they eventually empty into the sea, which may be viewed as the vast ocean of human experience, i.e., life. The ocean represents life, since life began there. The poet views hope, as in her poem “Aspiration,” as a chance to win the best things in life (idealism), just as early man hoped to learn how to clothe himself by making boots for cold weather in “Footwear: A History.” “In Dubious Battle,” farm workers hope for justice in terms of respect and fair wages. “Pen and I” conveys hope by artistic creation. Other themes include intimacy, education, childhood, sensitivity, frustration, governmental and social injustice, nature, family relationships, social protest. Not all her poems treat only what their titles suggest; each poem contains some surprise content.
