Murmurs of the Heart—The vampires were closing in. No, this isn't the retelling of a B movie but a portrait of my state of mind. Every night I’d fall into an abyss and in the morning I’d wake up with the shakes and a tubercular cough (the result of chain smoking cigarettes and pot). The Vita Nuova (the Autobiography of Dante’s youth till about his twenty-seventh year) is already well known to many in the original, or by means of essays and of English versions partial or entire. It is therefore, and on all accounts, unnecessary to say much more of the work here than it says for itself. Wedded to its exquisite and intimate beauties are personal peculiarities which excite wonder and conjecture, best replied to in the words which Beatrice herself is made to utter in the Commedia:

'I am inclined to think that we want new forms . . . as well as thoughts', confessed Elizabeth Barrett to Robert Browning in 1845. The Oxford Handbook of Victorian Poetry provides a closely-read appreciation of the vibrancy and variety of Victorian poetic forms, and attends to poems as both shaped and shaping forces. The volume is divided into four main sections. The first section on 'Form' looks at a few central innovations and engagements—'Rhythm', 'Beat', 'Address', 'Rhyme', 'Diction', 'Syntax', and 'Story'. The second section, 'Literary Landscapes', examines the traditions and writers (from classical times to the present day) that influence and take their bearings from Victorian poets. The third section provides 'Readings' of twenty-three poets by concentrating on particular poems or collections of poems, offering focused, nuanced engagements with the pleasures and challenges offered by particular styles of thinking and writing. The final section, 'The Place of Poetry', conceives and explores 'place' in a range of ways in order to situate Victorian poetry within broader contexts and discussions: the places in which poems were encountered; the poetic representation and embodiment of various sites and spaces; the location of the 'Victorian' alongside other territories and nationalities; and debates about the place - and displacement - of poetry in Victorian society. This Handbook is designed to be not only an essential resource for those interested in Victorian poetry and poetics, but also a landmark publication—provocative, seminal volume that will offer a lasting contribution to future studies in the area.

Are you a God-Buff? Or does the topic of religion give you the "HeBGB's?" Either way, you'll find inspiration in Heart Murmurs by Joan Butman.A series of essays that began as testimonies given by Joan at her Bible Study group, Heart Murmurs celebrates everyday spirituality by exploring topics such as forgiveness, worry, plastic surgery, and putting up the Christmas lights. Avoiding the "in your face" approach to Christianity, Joan uses humor and a hefty dose of humility in her reflections on Scripture:" I'd like to sign up for liposuction of the heart to suck out all of the pride, anger, resentment, jealousies, and grievances I keep harbored there then follow it up with a Botox injection to infuse me with the fruits of the spirit: 'love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control' (Galations 5:22-23). Now that's my idea of reconstructive surgery."Whether you're a God-Buff, a Bible Babe, or anyone whose heart could use a lift, Heart Murmurs will bring a smile to your face and warmth to your soul. Children are precious and so should be childhood. For too many children in impoverished countries, those delicate years are plagued by hunger, homelessness and exploitation. All the proceeds from the sale of Heart Murmurs go directly to PURA VIDA for Children, a non-profit organization whose mission is to care for homeless children in Costa Rica, starting with one child, then another, and another
