A monster's notes by Laurie Sheck( Book )
7 editions published between 2009 and 2013 in English and held by 758 libraries worldwide
This bold, genre-defying book offers Mary Shelley's monster's story in his own words. Sheck's thrilling work is a luminous meditation on creativity and technology, alienation and otherness, and on the need to be understood
Black series : poems by Laurie Sheck( Book )
10 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 442 libraries worldwide
Reading this book is a near psychedelic experience. But Sheck's universe is not just a virtual one; throughout these poems, the ordinary is the jumping off point as well as the final destination of her eye and ear. "What does the orange hawkweed do inside this dark -- its radiance/ secretive but not extinguished?" she asks, suggesting that what exists in darkness can be lit from within, as her verse is

The willow grove : poems by Laurie Sheck( Book )
7 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 177 libraries worldwide
Laurie Sheck interweaves the contemporary with the mythic, creating a realm in which such things as radios, skyscrapers, expressways, and mannequins are at once familiar and strange; immediate, yet tinged with the light of distance and myth. It is a realm where faces on a television newscast disappear "into the undertow / of hunger for the next thing and the next," and mannequins "stand in their angelic armor."

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 153 libraries worldwide
Poem a day ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 76 libraries worldwide
Like its predecessor, Poem a Day, Volume 2 offers a verse for each day of the year along with brief, often amusing, always interesting anecdotes about the poets and their poems. Laurie Sheck, a prize-winning poet in her own right, carries on the Poem a Day tradition by selecting a wide range of great poems that are short enough to memorize, substantive enough to be read again and again, and accessible enough to be enjoyed and appreciated by a wide readership. On the whole, Poem a Day, Volume 2 is a bit more modern than the original collection, a bit more international. Included are Elizabeth Bishop, Langston Hughes, Czeslaw Misloz, Emily Dickinson, William Carlos Williams, William Shakespeare, Emily Bronte, Rumi, Bertolt Brecht, Henry David Thoreau, Lewis Carroll, Yusef Komunyaaka, Octavio Paz, Adrienne Rich, Faiz Ahmed Faiz, Walt Whitman, Rudyard Kipling, Sharon Olds, Seamus Heaney, Gary Snyder, Sylvia Plath, Tru Vu ... the varied list goes on and on. Every day is different, a surprise, and an adventure led by a knowledgeable guide whose love of all good verse shines through on every page. --Steerforth Press

A poem a day ( Book )
in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In times past, Americans with a love of poetry routinely learned by heart dozens of poems - Shakespeare's sonnets, stirring patriotic verse, odes to churchyards and elegies for the departed, the wit of Dorothy Parker and the music of Swinburne or Poe or Yeats. A Poem Day includes 366 poems old and new, one for each day of the year, worth learning by heart. All share two things in common - they are short enough to learn in a day, and good enough to stand with the great poetry of the language, from Chaucer to Sylvia Plath. On most pages readers will also find brief, often amusing, always interesting trivia about the poets and their poems
