“In a century of mass migration and deportation, political exile and casual tourism, being elsewhere was the common condition. For the moderns, elsewhere was not merely physical location or dislocation, but was intrinsic to the work. Victor Segalen, in China at the beginning of the century, writes of the ‘manifestation of Diversity,’ a ‘spectacle of Difference’: everything that is ‘foreign, strange, unexpected, surprising, mysterious, amorous, superhuman, heroic, and even divine, everything that is Other.’ Picasso put it more bluntly: ‘Strangeness is what we wanted to make people think about because we were quite aware that our world was becoming very strange.’ After Guillaume Apollinaire’s ‘Zone’—perhaps the most influential poem of the century—collage, the juxtaposition of disparate elements, the manifestation of diversity, the making of the strange, became the primary new form of the new poetry.
“From the count examples, here are a few instances of the collage of a poet pasted, physically or mentally, onto a specific unfamiliar landscape.” So begins Eliot Weinberger’s essayistic travels into the nature of “journey” poetry. From Kōtarō Takamura's poem about Paris, to Fernando Pessoa’s “At the wheel of the Chevrolet on the road to Sintra,” to Apollinaire’s “Ocean-Letter,” Weinberger introduces fourteen poems illustrating the contemporary situation of being “elsewhere.”
A widow says she has seen apparitions from heaven. A crowd of residents and tourists gathers around her house on the beach before sunset each day hoping she will say she has had another vision. They believe the sightings are a substantiation of their faith. Meanwhile, a mysterious teenager suddenly and strangely shows up at a local high school and shows students how he can conjure up snakes from hell. For them, it is a time of fun and excitement and rebellion. One of their teachers befriends the widow on the beach and rediscovers his own lost faith as he tries to save his students from the snakes and evil that threaten all of their lives. The setting is northwest Florida for a clash between saints from heaven and serpents from hell.
Silvery tones of a scented garden designed for moonlight can add new dimensions to summer evenings on your patio. And careful choices of herbs can yield shades of burnished bronzes and mauves in the garden throughout the rigors of winter. These are just two samples of the information contained in more than fifty plans for novice and professional gardener alike. Herbs are already well known for their abilities to flavor, scent, dye, and medicate; in addition, when properly integrated with their surroundings they can greatly enhance the landscape. The plans offered here represent a wide range of possibilities--historic and private, large and small, modest and elaborate--that are easily adapted to one's needs. Designs created by landscape architects and members of the Herb Society of America were redrafted especially for this book. Each plan offers dimensions, structural details for paths, walls, hedges, and decorating elements in addition to full commentary and a plant list. A selection of the Garden Book Club and the Architects and Planners Book Club.
There are hundreds of books that will try to help you overcome or put an end to depression. But what if you could use your depression to change your life for the better? Your symptoms may be signals that something in your life needs to change. Learning to understand and interpret these signals is much more important than ignoring or avoiding them-approaches that only make the situation worse.
