A Child of Nature presents a collection of poems that are reflective not only of poet Ilda Poshis personal experiences, but also of the troubled experiences of her social environment. A journey into longing and love, warmth and loneliness, sincerity and sarcasm, and profound contemplation, her poetry offers a shared world of spiritual depths and simple joys. The emotions cover the spectrum from the love expressed in Retrospection to the loss and abandonment of In Absentia. Poshis images are elegantly crafted, highlighting even the smallest of details. The description and imagery illuminate the theme of each poem. Something is always leaving or departingunfinished, much like life. Pretty may this child be good and right may this southern wind blow and veer may this mother watch the light may this flowerbed stridently cheer may this poetry never writhe or end may this peaceful romance increase its flows may your beauty life befriend may these bells stop their heart-rending echoes may this cuddle gently sway may this love affair be gritty may the people refrain from fray may your image remain pretty may this love affair be gritty may your image remain pretty

Mark Twain and the American West

The trend is one of the most enduring in Twain criticism and features Huck as the quasi-romantic hero of the realist novel, a child of nature who found independence on the river and in the woods.1 Although reading Huckleberry Finn as a ...

In Mark Twain and the American West, Joseph Coulombe explores how Mark Twain deliberately manipulated contemporary conceptions of the American West to create and then modify a public image that eventually won worldwide fame. He establishes the central role of the western region in the development of a persona that not only helped redefine American manhood and literary celebrity in the late nineteenth century, but also produced some of the most complex and challenging writings in the American canon.Coulombe sheds new light on previously underappreciated components of Twain's distinctly western persona. Gathering evidence from contemporary newspapers, letters, literature, and advice manuals, Coulombe shows how Twain's persona in the early 1860s as a hard-drinking, low-living straight-talker was an implicit response to western conventions of manhood. He then traces the author's movement toward a more sophisticated public image, arguing that Twain characterized language and authorship in the same manner that he described western men: direct, bold, physical, even violent. In this way, Twain capitalized upon common images of the West to create himself as a new sort of western outlaw--one who wrote.Coulombe outlines Twain's struggle to find the proper balance between changing cultural attitudes toward male respectability and rebellion and his own shifting perceptions of the East and the West. Focusing on the tension between these goals, Coulombe explores Twain's emergence as the moneyed and masculine man-of-letters, his treatment of American Indians in its relation to his depiction of Jim in Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, the enigmatic connection of Huck Finn to the natural world, and Twain's profound influence on Willa Cather's western novels.Mark Twain and the American West is sure to generate new interest and discussion about Mark Twain and his influence. By understanding how conventions of the region, conceptions of money and class, and constructions of manhood intersect with the creation of Twain's persona, Coulombe helps us better appreciate the writer's lasting effect on American thought and literature through the twentieth century and into the twenty-first.
