Crossing unmarked snow : further views on the writer's vocation by William Stafford( Book )
6 editions published between 1997 and 2001 in English and held by 501 libraries worldwide
A plainspoken but eminently effective poet, the late William Stafford (1914-93) managed to influence the mainstream of American poetry by distancing himself from its trends and politics. Crossing Unmarked Snow continues - in the tradition of Stafford's well-loved collections Writing the Australian Crawl and You Must Revise Your Life - collecting prose and poetry on the writer's profession. The book includes reviews and reflections on poets from Theodore Roethke and Carolyn Forche to Philip Levine; conversations on the making of poems; and a selection of Stafford's own poetry. The book also includes a section on the art of teaching, featuring interviews, writing exercises, and essays on the writer's vocation
The literature of the Lewis and Clark expedition : a bibliography and essays by Stephen Dow Beckham( Book )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 284 libraries worldwide
"Meriwether Lewis (1774-1809) and William Clark (1770-1838) helped determine a nation's destiny. Between 1803 and 1806 they led the Corps of Discovery, commissioned by President Thomas Jefferson, across the uncharted American West. Operating under a letter of instruction from Jefferson, they carried the concerns of the American Enlightenment to the sprawling interior of the continent." "Lewis and Clark recorded Indian vocabularies and culture, opened diplomatic relations with more than 50 tribes, collected botanical and zoological specimens, mapped the land, secured samples of minerals, and recorded temperature and weather data. They established U.S. military posts on the plains of North Dakota and at the mouth of the Columbia River, sites of their winter encampments of 1804-1805 and 1805-1806." "Lewis and Clark exhibited unerring leadership and fortitude in carrying out their complex mission. The success of their labors unleashed a flood of consequential events altering the course of a nation and undoing thousands of years of traditional lifeways of Native Americans. An eager world sought to share in their adventures. Their reports and other narratives about the expedition quickened interest in the American West, feeding the nation's fascination with exotic lands and cultures and fueling dreams of westward expansion."--Jacket
Sound of the ax : aphorisms and poems by William Stafford( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 125 libraries worldwide
Sound of the Ax brings together for the first time over four hundred aphorisms and twenty-six aphoristic poems by one of America's most essential poets of the twentieth century. Many readers are familiar with the trenchant nature of William Stafford's poems, with lines such as "Justice will take us millions of intricate moves" and "Your job is to find what the world is trying to be," but have never had the opportunity to read a sustained selection from the thousands of wise, witty, and penetrating statements he created in over forty years of daily writing in his journal. In keeping with Stafford's varied interests, the aphorisms in Sound of the Ax explore many topics--war and peace, involvement, aging, appearances, fear, egotism, writing, nature, animals, suffering, faith, living an ethical life, and so on--with his incisive view. The poems are either made up entirely or primarily aphorisms, and range from the well-known "Things I Learned Last Week" to some never before collected. Readers will find much to enjoy and to think about here, and will return over and over to Sound of the Ax for inspiration, pleasure, and wisdom from an author noted for his integrity and mindful living
