“A comprehensive, insightful, and articulate guide for everyone who has ever attempted to make art.” —San Francisco Chronicle An Absorbing Errand uses stories of artist’s lives, personal anecdotes, and insights from the author’s work as a psychotherapist to examine the psychological obstacles that prevent people from staying with, and relishing, the process of art-making. Each chapter is devoted to a problem intrinsic to the creative process and illustrates how these very obstacles, once understood, can become prime sources of the energy that actually fuels the mastery of art-making. Ultimately, An Absorbing Errand provides a philosophical, historical, and analytical look at the creative impulse and how certain artists from a wide field mastered their craft. From Julia Child to Charlie Chaplin to Lady Gaga, famous painters to established writers, Smith shows us how each overcame the obstacles they faced in the pursuit of their creative visions.

This book presents the life and work of the American author Thomas Bulfinch (1796-1867). He is famous for his book <I>The Age of Fable; or, Stories of Gods and Heroes (Boston, 1855), also known as <I>Bulfinch's Mythology. With it, he democratized for Americans the Greek and Roman myths which they needed to know in order to understand the literature which more and more of them, including women, were reading. The book was a landmark on the road to equality in education and is an all-time best seller. Bulfinch sympathized with the people - those without Latin - who did not know the myths because he spent most of his time with such men and women. Although he was well born and highly educated, he lived and worked modestly in order to help his struggling birth family. By examining letters of Thomas Bulfinch and his family and exploring life in the early American republic, including the role of the ancient classics, this book sheds light on the period and on Bulfinch's life and achievement.

Ancient names come to rich and fascinating life in this lavishly illustrated book for mythology fans and word lovers.Did you know that “museums” were initially temples built to worship the nine muses, the goddesses of the arts? That “Janus” was the god of the doorways and hallways, and we have named our janitors after him? Where did these words — and other words, such as chaos, genius, nemesis, panic, echo, and narcissus — come from? From the ancient stories of the Greeks — stories that rang so true and wise that the names of the characters have survived for centuries as words we use every day. The brief stories here not only impart the subtle wisdom of these ancient tales, but make us understand the words, and our own world, more deeply.
