Pretending to be asleep; poems by Peter Davison( Book )
5 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 290 libraries worldwide
Mr. Davison's third collection--brief cerebral poems mainly dealing with the ""outrage and the dread"" of death in life. Davison's man of straw, the ""Plausible Man, "" taking shape from circumstances and social confluence, casts no shadow, and it is this non-existence of contemporary man that the poet attempts to exorcise as ""life stiffens and keeps its distance."" Davison's verse itself--with a kind of Midtown urbanity--also keeps a careful distance from the gutsy, rampaging line and experimentation of most new poetry.

Mary Magdalene the hidden apostle ( visu )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 98 libraries worldwide
The first person to whom Jesus appeared after his resurrection has been the victim of misrepresentation. Mary Magdalene was not a prostitute. Rather, she, was a woman of wealth whose financial support was crucial to the early survival of Christianity. The special relationship she had with Christ led to resentment among the other disciples, and her reputation was tarnished as a result. Drawing on ancient texts, rare art and research, this far-reaching portrait compares the evidence we have with the stories we have heard. She was a disciple who believed in the word of the Lord long before many others
