Restless Souls: The Making of American Spirituality from Emerson to Oprah
Leigh Eric Schmidt
0060545666
August 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Starred Review. Princeton religious historian Schmidt provides a sweeping and detailed look at the forefathers, and foremothers, of today's spirituality movement. From Emerson and the American Transcendentalists through early yoga exponents and up to media empress Oprah Winfrey, Schmidt labels, links and differentiates the strains of spiritual ferment and longing woven into American religious and cultural history. He claims the spiritual-but-not-religious crowd has always been here, often linked to progressive social and political activists via a social gospel. Having established the appreciable history of American spirituality, Schmidt's last chapter argues against the common critique of it as narcissistic and vapid. It is rather the changing expression of a broad American spiritual left that can counter today's...

Whitman and the Romance of Medicine
Robert Leigh Davis
0520207602
August 1997
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
In this compelling, accessible examination of one of America's greatest cultural and literary figures, Robert Leigh Davis details the literary and social significance of Walt Whitman's career as a nurse during the American Civil War. Davis shows how the concept of "convalescence" in nineteenth-century medicine and philosophy--along with Whitman's personal war experiences--provide a crucial point of convergence for Whitman's work as a gay and democratic writer.
In his analysis of Whitman's writings during this period--Drum-Taps, Democratic Vistas, Memoranda During the War, along with journalistic works and correspondence--Davis argues against the standard interpretation that Whitman's earliest work was his best. He finds instead that Whitman's hospital writings are his most persuasive account of the...

Brooklyn Reader
Andrea Wyatt
0517883791
April 1995
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
"Dere's no guy livin' dat knows Brooklyn t'roo and t'roo," wrote North Carolinian Thomas Wolfe, "because it'd take a guy a lifetime just to find his way aroun'." These are among the final words in this alphabetical anthology of work from the indigenous literati and sojourning scribes who graced Brooklyn until roughly the middle of this century. Some of the best pieces are authored not by dead poets but rather by the likes of Spike Lee, whose recollection of filming Do the Right Thing in Bedford-Stuyvesant follows an ambivalent evocation of Irish American adolescence by native journalist Pete Hamill. While these essays are strongly about place and people, some of the short stories appear only weakly connected to Brooklyn. Although this book makes a decent introduction to American, not just Brooklyn, literature, only...
