The Poetry Book Society Summer 2018 Choice. Vahni Capildeo’s Venus as a Bear collects poems on animals, art, language, the sea, thinghood, metaphor, description, and dance. They tend toward, and tend to, the inanimate and non-human, tenderly disclosing their forms of sentience. We have feelings for creatures, objects and places, but where do these affinities come from? How do things, as things, affect us, remain mysterious while making themselves known? For Capildeo answers formed at their own pace, while waiting for lambing at a friend’s farm; exploring the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford; criss-crossing the British Isles with the Out of Bounds poetry project; or hearing of Africa and the Romans in Scotland, of Guyana and Shakespeare, while standing over-the-boots deep in a freezing sea off the coast of Wales. Many of the poems respond to real places, objects and people, as investigations, meditations, or dedications. They dwell on bodies and dwell in the body, inviting ardent, open forms of reading, in the spirit of their composition.

The lack of language to identify emotional abuse and its aftermath among couples is a major barrier to recognition and treatment. From Charm to Harm breaks down this barrier by providing simple words and definitions that name and explain harmful interactions between intimate partners. Many of these interactions, although emotionally toxic, are hard to distinguish from the normal experience of being in a relationship. From Charm to Harm will empower you to recognize and describe the psychological destruction wrought by an intimate partner who claims to love you. It will provide you with ways to protect yourself and your loved ones in current and future relationships. Determine if your mate is emotionally abusive, the effects on you, and how you may be enabling the abuse. Find out how and why charm turns to harm when one partner has a deep-seated need to control the other partner. Discover why people abuse their lovers, why their lovers allow it, how it happens, and its aftermath. Learn how easy it is to get caught up in the oppressive cycle of emotional abuse and how you might be contributing to your own suffering. Learn how to stand up to an abusive partner, get treatment for both partners, and make the choice to leave or stay in the relationship. From Charm to Harm will help you stop the cycle of emotional abuse and claim your right to be loved and respected by your mate.

A loving revision of what Fantasy and Science Fiction named the best children's science fiction book of 1955. With the original and never-before-published art from Richard Floethe. This revision has been authorized by the families of both the author and the illustrator.Johnny Watson was the first pioneer child born in the colony of New Plymouth on the planet, Venus, and for a long time he was the only child there, with no one but his pet bear, Baba, for company. Perhaps that is why Johnny and Baba learned to understand each other's languages and become almost like brothers.Of course, Baba was no ordinary bear. His jeweled claws and teeth were worth a fortune on Earth. That was why Johnny had to be constantly on guard to protect him from outlaws and hunters. And often Baba protected Johnny, too. Life on Venus was not only beautiful, but so dangerous that every man, woman, and child had to wear armor whenever they went outsides their houses. One day they might be attacked by giant rhinosaurs, thirty feet high, and the next, from arrow birds with their deadly bills.But Baba had a mysterious way of pacifying these hostile creatures, so Johnny was safe so long as his bear was with him. And in the end this same mysterious power of Baba's holds the key to enabling men and animals to happily live together on the green planet Venus.
