A Kansas Notable Book of the Year, 2018Andrew Carnegie funded 59 public libraries in Kansas in the early 20th century, but it was frontier women who organized waffle suppers, minstrel shows, and women's baseball games to buy books to fill them. Now, a century later, Angelina returns to her father's hometown of New Hope to complete her dissertation on the Carnegie libraries just as Traci and Gayle arrive in town.Traci is an artist-in-residence at the renovated Carnegie Arts Center and Gayle is a refugee whose neighboring town, Prairie Hill, has just been destroyed by a tornado. The discovery of an old journal inspires the women to create a library and arts center as the first act of rebuilding Prairie Hill after the tornado. As they work together to raise money for the center, Traci reveals her enormous heart, Angelina discovers that problem-solving is more valuable than her PhD, and Gayle demonstrates that courage is not about waiting out a storm but building a future. Full of Kansas history - from pioneer homesteaders to Carrie Nation to orphan trains - To the Stars Through Difficulties is a contemporary story of women changing their world and finding their own voices, powers, and self-esteem in the process. 1.

On Slavery and Abolitionism

A collection of historic writings from the slave-owner-turned-abolitionist sisters portrayed in Sue Monk Kidd's novel The Invention of Wings Sarah and Angelina Grimké's portrayal in Sue Monk Kidd's latest novel, The Invention of Wings, has brought much-deserved new attention to these inspiring Americans. The first female agents for the American Anti-Slavery Society, the sisters originally rose to prominence after Angelina wrote a rousing letter of support to renowned abolitionist William Garrison in the wake of Philadelphia's pro-slavery riots in 1935. Born into Southern aristocracy, the Grimkés grew up in a slave-holding family. Hetty, a young house servant, whom Sarah secretly taught to read, deeply influenced Sarah Grimké's life, sparking her commitment to anti-slavery activism. As adults, the sisters embraced Quakerism and dedicated their lives to the abolitionist and women's rights movements. Their appeals and epistles were some of the most eloquent and emotional arguments against slavery made by any abolitionists. Their words, greeted with trepidation and threats in their own time, speak to us now as enduring examples of triumph and hope. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Towards A Queer Black Feminist Theatre Aesthetic:

"Black women playwrights in particular have ensured its [Black culture's] survival through creating performance pieces that reflexively evaluate their life experiences" (Sunni-Ali). This book is an analysis of three, queer, black female playwrights and their plays - Mary Powell Burrill, "They That Sit in Darkness", Angelina Weld Grimké, "Rachel" and Alice Dunbar Nelson, "Mine Eyes Have Seen" - from the early twentieth century who did just that. I am interested in the reflexive analysis of black life in America that their plays offered their audiences. I am interested in how these plays reached black audiences - their manner of disbursement and performance - in magazine publications such as the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People's "The Crisis" and Margaret Sanger's "The Birth Control Review". I am interested in how the form they created can be a model for creating and identifying a contemporary queer black feminist theater aesthetic.

SHMIOT FUGUE: NEOMYSTICISM IN THE VOICES OF THREE JEWISH-MEXICAN WOMEN WRITERS integrates extensive research, teaching and publication in the fields of both religious studies and literary theory to produce an interdisciplinary monograph which considers a selection of Jewish-Mexican narrative fiction. The range of thought and experience creatively expressed through these novels and short stories has drawn, in significant ways, on medieval legends and texts to develop themes of contemporary-thus neo-mysticism. Close readings of works by Angelina Muñiz-Huberman, Esther Seligson, and Sabina Berman provide rich material, inviting us to listen closely to the variations that deepen our understanding of the subject of neomysticism.

A Mind of Winter: Poems for a Snowy Season
9,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

There is no better time to curl up in a comfortable chair and read than in wintertime. And winter has been a powerful muse for many of America's best loved poets. The elegant patterns of frost on a windowpane, a child on a sled, a lone fox foraging for food on a desolate landscape, the comic smile of a snowman, the sobering sight of an unkempt man huddled against the cold, or a pair of red slippers glimpsed in a shop window in a gray, windy sleet have all provided inspiration for poems that sustain and renew us. A Mind of Winter collects thirty-two of the most moving poems on the experience of winter. Illustrated throughout with elegant period woodcuts by Thomas Nason, the poems range from the great classics-James Russell Lowell's 'The First Snow Fall' and John Greenleaf Whittier's 'Snow-Bound'-to the more contemporary, free form, and diverse-Rafael Campo's 'Begging for Change in Winter' and Gertrude Schnackenberg's 'The Paperweight.' While all the poets focus on the experience of winter as their theme, each provides us with an illuminating glimpse of winter's subtle forms. Marge Piercy is grateful on New Year's Day for all she has been given; Mary Oliver observes the cruel Darwinian reality of nature; Peter Davison muses on the irony of a 'snowless New England'; and Robert Frost is surprised by joy while out for a walk on a winter's day. Each reminds us, in the words of Wallace Stevens, that 'one must have a mind of winter/to regard the frost and the boughs/of the pine-trees crusted with snow . . .' Contributors include:Rosanna Warren, Emily Dickinson, Richard Wilbur, Angelina Weld Grimké, Amy Lowell, Charles Simic, Peter Davison, Mary Oliver, Sylvia Plath, Marge Piercy, James Merrill, and Maxine Kumin.
