Originally published in 1898, From a Faraway Land, here translated into English for the first time by Brian Stableford, is one of the quintessential collections of Symbolist short fiction, by Remy de Gourmont, one of France's greatest writers. With their sophisticated understatement, and hybridization of the narrative techniques and strategies developed by the suppliers of newspaper fiction with those of Baudelairean prose poetry, these stories employ symbolism in its most extreme form, that of allegory, and are unquestionably among the author's most refined accomplishments.

Scrolls of the ancient Sethians, chronicling the deluge, mention a passionate wife of Noah's by the name of Norea, who came from an unknown land far away. Her name means "fire" and she burned off the worthless souls clinging to the rump of the ark as it floated free of the ground. But some say that she existed even before God said "let there be light!" No one dared mention this while Christianity reigned supreme but, Shelley, the poet, knew the land's whereabouts and the name of its ruler.

This book is comprised of poems and reflections that the Lord has given me over the past few years. Finding that so many need to wake up to the fact that the Lord is coming back soon, I have felt an urgency for others to read and hear what, I feel, comes from the heart of God. We don’t know when He will return for His own, but He has called me to do my part in sharing His love and His Word with those who will hear… I began writing poetry as my mother-in-law lay in the hospital in Elkhart, Indiana… just days before going home to meet her Lord Jesus, whom she loved and served for over 60 years of her life. Even though I knew her for only four short years, during that time she inspired a longing in me to know my Lord better and to draw closer to Him. As a result, my Father in heaven began pouring into me words that became poems and songs… Some of the poems may make you laugh, some may make you cry, but they will all make you THINK!

My homeland is India, far, far away from where I live today. I raised my children here and I really wanted to have them hear some of the stories that my mother and grandmother used to tell when I was a little girl. We have tried to give a glimpse into the world of stories from where I was born and brought up - stories of castles, long journeys, brave heroes and heroines, stories from the great epics Ramayana and Mahabharata, tales of great and learned Indians as well as fables and family tales. We felt that there was a need to preserve and share these tales from a faraway country with generations to come and hope that many readers and listeners may get a flavor of India and will be transported into that world through their imagination.

Poetry. Translation. Asian & Asian American Studies. This is a bilingual (Korean-English) collection of poetry by Shin Sok-jong (1907-1974), translated into English by Sung-Il Lee. "Critics have pointed out that Shin Sok-jong's poetic spirit is attuned to Utopian idealism, Taoist transcendentalism, and longing for pastoral leisureliness. And it is quite true that he was a poet who played a major role in building up the tradition of lyricism in modern Korean poetry. But the "lyricism" in his poetry, one must remember, is not an inborn trait of his poetic writings, but a way of attaining poise and calm and eventually, consolation in coping with and coming to terms with the harsh realities. Quite often he sounds like a dreamer; but the "dream" he indulges in is often the world of fantasy and surrealism he conjures up for self-hypnotism."--Sung-Il Lee, From the Introduction "Shin Sok-jong is the kind of poet who manages to weave together into a seamless unity nature, desire, and dreaming. His landscapes are filled with concrete images as well as inscrutable mist and fog. He constantly identifies himself and even metaphorically transforms himself into the commonplace, outdoor objects that he scrutinizes, such as mountains, flowers, fossils, trees, or bamboo. His love poems shiver with a deepening intensity of tenderness rather than passion: 'Within my heart / There's a river that flows, meandering, / With my first love thrown in it like a pebble' or 'In your eyes / Loom the dear faces / That I shall see again on a far-off day.' And yet, an underlying note of melancholy resonates in his writing in lines like 'You and I are white peach blossoms deprived of spring...' or 'My heart is dark as night...' His dreams, however, permeate these poems like fireflies that dazzle a summer night. He is constantly ready to head out into the unknown, restless to escape, to transcend mundane reality, yet his limitations frustrate his departure: 'I can neither fly like a white crane, / Nor waver like a flower in the wind.' Nevertheless, his poetry leaves the senses tingling with heightened expectation."--Bill Wolak "Every poem in this collection is seemingly a stroll through a pastoral garden with birds chirping and lilies blooming. However, this tranquility, surreal and dreamlike, exists in a place even the poet never knew, a never-land so far away, like his motherland he could only dream about, because in reality he only witnessed her endless sufferings and tortures under the feet of the invaders. Shin Sok-jong, a poet born and lived through the annexation of Korea by Japan for 35 years and the Korean civil war for three years and their aftermaths. His poems are filled with the Korean Han, the pain from the overwhelming helplessness in such a turbulence. He could only depict this loveland in his poems, retreat to his dreamland for a little peace, where he could, like a little boy's drawing, choose only what he loved, trees, flowers, birds, sun, wind, etc. All his pastoral themes and its lyrical song style are actually the disguise of the heavy sentiment of Han. Fortunately Sung-il Lee understands the poet's pessimistic idealism in depth. While singing together with the poet about the beauty of nature, he precisely captures and masterfully expresses into English the poet's Han, the pain of Korean people, the suffering of the Korean nation, and the hope for the future."--Hong Ai Bai

A call to agricultural revolution from a locavore and author who is one of “the most prominent and effective advocates of American environmental thought” (Prairie Fire Newspaper). For years, Wes Jackson has made it his mission to raise Americans’ awareness about where their food comes from. Focusing on locally grown and produced food, the locavore movement—joined by food experts and enthusiasts including Alice Waters, Michael Pollan, and Barbara Kingsolver—strives to return agriculture to a more community-based endeavor. This would not only improve the quality of the meals we eat, but protect the land from agricultural processes we’ve grown too dependent on. In this volume, ranging in topic from the history of the earth to the use of modern chemicals and pesticides to the effects of global warming, Jackson outlines a plan that highlights natural ecosystems in the future of farming and food production. An eloquent manifesto for our age, Jackson’s analysis explores the way our agricultural methods have affected everything from the soil to the health of the US population to the danger of monoculture grains. Join the author in a look at how we can change not only the food we eat, but the future of our land.
