Elizabeth Smart : a fugue essay on women and creativity by Kim Echlin( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elizabeth Smart, author of the classic By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept, has long been seen as a woman determined by "Romantic" love. In this new look at her life, Kim Echlin shows that another - powerful - source of her creativity was rooted in her fearless exploration of the female body and psyche - as daughter, lover of men and women, an single mother raising four children fathered by a British poet." "Women's creativity and relationships are the preoccupation of Elizabeth Smart's Writing. Echlin shows how Elizabeth Smart's determined embrace of her own unconventional experience in her art belongs to a literary tradition of writers who create female characters with a will toward individuality. To the last pages of Elizabeth Smart's life-long diaries, she never stopped challenging herself to stop doubting, to live and speak her truth, even though it put her on the margins throughout her life." "Echlin brings new material to bear on this reflection, including over one hundred interviews and a collection of never before published letters in which Smart reflects on birth, childrearing, and female creativity."--Jacket

Under the visible life by Kim Echlin( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fatherless Katherine carries the stigma of her mixed-race background through an era that is hostile to her and all she represents. It is only through music that she finds the freedom to temporarily escape and dream of a better life for herself, nurturing this hard-won refuge throughout the vagaries of unexpected motherhood and an absent husband, and relying on her talent to build a future for her family. Orphaned Mahsa also grows up in the shadow of loss, sent to relatives in Pakistan after the death of her parents. Struggling to break free, she escapes to Montreal, leaving behind her first love, Kamal. But the threads of her past are not so easily severed, and she finds herself forced into an arranged marriage. For Mahsa, too, music becomes her solace and allows her to escape from her oppressive circumstances. When Katherine and Mahsa meet, they find in each other a kindred spirit as well as a musical equal, and their lives are changed irrevocably. Together, they inspire and support one another, fusing together their cultures, their joys, and their losses, just as they collaborate musically in the language of free-form, improvisational jazz."--
