Book Description: James Mitchell presents a series of biographical sketches and interviews of more than thirty Maine women who have all carved out meaningful careers for themselves. The women shared their stories and dreams with Mitchell to celebrate their and other women's accomplishments. Although their stories and fields of endeavor — ranging from commercial fishing (Linda Greenlaw), to writing (Kate Barnes), to government service (Chellie Pingree) — are different, the women all celebrate the remarkable resilience of the human spirit. What they have in common is intelligence, passion, enthusiasm, and a firm belief in their abilities. Black and white photographs accompany each profile.

Book Description: 'Finding our own voice' was the title of the three Macmillan Brown lectures delivered at the University of Canterbury in 2005 by Elizabeth Gordon. She discusses the development and evolution of the New Zealand accent from the earlist days, when the children of the early settlers spoke with the dialects of their parents, through the remarkably short period of time to when people began to accuse children and others of speaking with an odious 'colonial twang'. Various English dialects and Māori also contributed to the mix to produce a unique New Zealand voice.

Book Description: "John Berryman was one of the most celebrated and accomplished poets of his time. In the two decades since his death, critical and biographical interest has continued at an impressive rate, but until now, no collection of original essays has appeared. Editors Richard J. Kelly and Alan K. Lathrop have brought together essays that provide a fresh assessment of Berryman as teacher, friend, colleague, poet, and critic." "The volume opens with a moving personal reflection by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Philip Levine, who was one of Berryman's students, and includes contributions from Berryman scholars Lewis Hyde, Paul Mariani, Peter Stitt, and Charles Thornbury. The book concludes with Berryman's one-act play, Cleopatra: A Meditation, written in 1937 and never before published." "The essays advance our understanding of Berryman's life and work, providing insights on his excellence as a teacher, his influential relationship with Robert Lowell, and the creative and destructive effects of alcohol on his work, among other topics."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
