              A prize-winning historian presents a deeply learned and radically revisionist biography, arguing that the dictator's main strategic enemy, from the start of his political career in the 1920s, was not communism or the Soviet Union, but capitalism and the U.S.

              That Wondrous Pattern: Essays on Poetry and Poets

              That Wondrous Pattern: Essays on Poetry and Poets (Hardback)

              By Raine, Kathleen; Introduction by Keeble, Brian; Preface by Berry, Wendell

              Kathleen Raine was one of the greatest British poets of the last century. Raised in a deeply literary and spiritual household, she went on to study at Cambridge where she met Jacob Bronowski, William Empson, and Malcolm Lowry. A dedicated Neoplatonist, she studied and presented t...he works of Thomas Taylor, and wrote seminal books on William Blake, including the monumental Blake and Tradition, and several highly praised books about W. B. Yeats. She was a co-founder of The Temenos Academy of Integral Studies, and its journal, Temenos, dedicated to the sacred springs of life, which are the imagination and the heart. For our new selection, That Wondrous Pattern: Essays on Poetry and Poets, Raine s colleague and friend Brian Keeble offers sixteen essays that range from The Inner Journey of the Poet and What is Man? to essays on Blake, Wordsworth, Hopkins, Yeats, Eliot, and several others. The centerpiece, What is the Use of Poetry? is a rigorous defense of the great art. Keeble himself contributes a fascinating introduction to Raine s work, and Wendell Berry, himself a colleague and friend of Kathleen Raine, offers a preface. All who spend time in the presence of this wonderful writer will leave newly entranced with the art and use of the beautiful, and convinced that it is only in moments when we transcend ourselves that we can know anything of value.

              In The Unruly City, historian Mike Rapport offers a vivid history of three intertwined cities toward the end of the eighteenth centuryParis, London, and New Yorkall in the midst of political chaos and revolution. From the British occupation of New York during the Revolutionary Wa...r, to agitation for democracy in London and popular uprisings, and ultimately regicide in Paris, Rapport explores the relationship between city and revolution, asking why some cities engender upheaval and some suppress it. Why did Paris experience a devastating revolution while London avoided one? And how did American independence ignite activism in cities across the Atlantic? Rapport takes readers from the politically charged taverns and coffeehouses on Fleet Street, through a sea battle between the British and French in the New York Harbor, to the scaffold during the Terror in Paris. The Unruly City shows how the cities themselves became protagonists in the great drama of revolution.

              From the Monastery to the World: The Letters of Thomas Merton and Ernesto Cardenal
               

              From the Monastery to the World: The Letters of Thomas Merton and Ernesto Cardenal (Hardback)

              Thomas Merton and Ernesto Cardenal were both poets and priests, wholly committed to a life of spiritual contemplation which was never far from the gritty work that lead them to risk life and reputation in order to raise worldwide consciousness concerning issues of social justice ...and the abuse of human rights. From the Monastery to the World collects the complete correspondence between these spiritual men and dedicated activists, translated into English for the first time. The letters in this book, written between Merton and Cardenal from 1959-1968, give us fascinating insights into the early spiritual and political awakenings of eventual Sandinista and exponent of liberation theology Ernesto Cardenal, who was then a novice leaving the Trappist Monastery in Kentucky where he first met Merton. While making the long trip home to Nicaragua to build a utopian artist s commune on the Island of Solentiname, Cardenal rubs elbows with some of Latin America s greatest writers and artists of that time. In From the Monastery to the World, Cardenal is still a hungry pupil, years away from becoming the internationally renowned poet-statesman and Nicaraguan Minister of Culture. Here we see the poet and monk Thomas Merton as a wise, patient, and sometimes even humbled mentor, during the years when he was still shaping and collecting the raw materials for such writings as: The Way of Chuang Tzu , Raids on the Unspeakable , and Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander . Merton and Cardenal s correspondence grants readers an audience to conversations between two men deeply connected by their vigorous endeavors toward spiritual freedom, voracious intellectual appetites, and artistic exploration despite the cultural differences, language barriers, and geographic distances which divide them.
