Triggering Town: Lectures and Essays on Poetry and Writing
Richard Hugo
0393309339
August 1992
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Richard Hugo's The Triggering Town, originally published in 1979, remains one of the freshest and most refreshing treatises on the writing of poetry. While you won't find formality or nicety here, Hugo has the unusual quality of being highly opinionated and yet not at all convinced that what works for him will work for you. Hugo doesn't believe that he can teach you how to write; he believes he can teach you how he writes, and by doing so, teach you "how to teach yourself how to write." And while most writing instructors claim that one can't be a good writer without being a good reader, Hugo claims "that one learns to write only by writing." Hugo's essays are strong-willed and funny and by turns full of bluster and cloaked in modesty. While "a good teacher can save a young poet years...

Book Description
As knights battle to the death, the fate of England hangs in the balance.

England is in turmoil--torn by fierce and bitter hatreds between Norman and Saxon. Rival claimants to the throne have plunged into bloody civil war. Price John--taking advantage of Richard's absence while fighting in the Crusades--plots to make himself crowned king. Richard returns and vows to take his revenge on John.

But he will need a courageous and able warrior on his side--a warrior like Wilfred of Ivanhoe.

Disinherited by his father, disowned and dishonored, Wilfred allies himself with Richard. In many adventures he will battle knights in deadly tournaments, scale castle walls, be wounded, captured, and rescued by the infamous Robin Hood, and find true love with the fiery Rowena.

In what has become Sir Walter...

Book Description
Published in 1819 and set at the close of the 12th century, this classic historical romance unfolds in a kingdom torn asunder by the hatred between Saxons and Normans. Its dispossessed heroes, Ivanhoe and Richard the Lion-Hearted, face an uphill battle against firmly entrenched adversaries. The success of their fight rests upon the support of an unlikely crew of outsiders, including a Jew accused of sorcery, a swineherd slave, a jester, and the legendary Robin Hood.

The Real West Marginal Way
Ripley Hugo
039330860X
May 1992
Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Hugo's poetry is about the search for roots, our need to adapt to change so that everywhere is home; his poems embrace the whole American landscape. These loosely assembled, autobiographical and critical essays by the poet take us from his neurotic childhood in Seattle, where he was raised by strict grandparents who beat him, through a stint of teaching and hard drinking in Montana, to his treatment in psychotherapy and his happy, productive second marriage. One piece about his World War II experience as a pilot draws sardonic parallels to Catch-22. The title essay on West Marginal Way, a street in his hometown near Puget Sound, reveals that Hugo (who died in 1982) continually returned to rivers and to nature for inspiration. Also included are occasional pieces on his obsessions, baseball and movies, and an...

The New Division of Labor: How Computers Are Creating the Next Job Market
Frank Levy

August 2005
Textbook Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
As computers make inroads on every aspect of business, will people cease to matter? That’s the underlying question of this fascinating examination of the new labor market. In lucid prose, Levy and Murnane—economics professors at MIT and Harvard, respectively, and co-authors of the 1996 bestseller Teaching the New Basic Skills—present their answer, and their expectations regarding how computers will affect future wages and job distributions. They begin by debunking the common perception that computers eliminate jobs; the truth, they say, is that "computers are Janus-faced, helping to create jobs even as they destroy jobs." Supported by trend data—clearly laid out in charts, graphs and extensive footnotes—they argue that every technical advance since the introduction of computers to the...

From School Library Journal
Grade 9 Up--This is an excellent abridgment of the classic by Sir Walter Scott. The story line is very smooth and easy to follow. David Warner's reading is perfect. His British accent is easy to understand and adds to the telling of the story. Music added at the beginning and end of each side provides additional atmosphere. There is enough background information at the beginning of the presentation to allow listeners to follow the plot and the characters. This would be an excellent study tool when reading this work as a school assignment. The addition of a vocabulary list might help listeners with some of the unfamiliar words. The story has enough action and romance to make it a good listening experience for a wide range of ages, making it a valuable purchase for school and public libraries.?Pat Griffith,...

Review
' ... Glauert's illustrative and analytical detail is always subordinate to the energy and clarity of her argument. And that argument itself is truly deductive: it leaps out from an honest, keen-eared study of Wolf's music, rather than imposing a wilful agenda on it.' Hilary Finch, BBC Music Magazine
