Return to the House of Usher

From Publishers Weekly
Robert Poe's slight purported sequel to Edgar Allan Poe's classic short story "The Fall of the House of Usher" neither illuminates the original tale nor engages the reader in a new vision. This contemporary update finds bourbon-swilling, 30-year-old John Charles Poe a struggling roving town reporter in Crowley Creek, Va. It's late November when college chum Dr. Roderick Usher contacts Poe to help investigate strange happenings at the Usher Sanatorium, which he and his psychiatrist sister, Madeleine, run on the grounds of the first House of Usher. Poe and his newly hired research assistant, a recent divorcee, set forth to battle the forces of good and evil, which apparently haunt the modern counterparts of the original characters. What this Poe adds is a subplot involving a series of bland secondary characters in...

Book Review
It takes guts to write a novel that combines an ancient secret brotherhood, the Swiss Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire, a papal conclave, mysterious ambigrams, a plot against the Vatican, a mad scientist in a wheelchair, particles of antimatter, jets that can travel 15,000 miles per hour, crafty assassins, a beautiful Italian physicist, and a Harvard professor of religious iconology. It takes talent to make that novel anything but ridiculous. Kudos to Dan Brown (Digital Fortress) for achieving the nearly impossible. Angels & Demons is a no-holds-barred, pull-out-all-the-stops, breathless tangle of a thriller--think Katherine Neville's The Eight (but cleverer) or Umberto Eco's Foucault's Pendulum (but more accessible).

Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is shocked to find proof that the legendary...

Going by Contraries: Robert Frost's Conflict with Science

Hardcover
·
 
Jay Parini, Middlebury College, author of Robert Frost: A Life
"Hass has written an intellectual history of Frost’s poetry, and this has long been needed."

Book Description
One of the most vexing problems facing American modernist poets was how to find a place for poetry and religion in a culture that considered science its most reliable source of truth. By the time Robert Frost began writing, the Emersonian concept of nature as an analogue for a benevolent deity had been replaced among the scientifically educated by the view that nature’s mechanisms were based solely upon accident, competition, and survival. Immersed in his mother’s peculiar blend of Emersonian and Swedenborgian mysticism, and already inclined by age sixteen toward a career in poetry, Frost not only saw his...
