Book Description: From the gold mines of California to the coalmines of Pennsylvania. Through the Civil War, and to the beginning of the twentieth-century, the Parnell family makes its mark. Samuel Parnell, an Irish immigrant, and patriarch of the Parnell family, amasses a respectable fortune by selling mercantile goods in the gold mining town of Hellbent. Then after killing a starving prospector caught stealing food from his store, he and his family are exiled from the hostile community. They then move eastward, where Samuel's quest for financial and political power conflicts with his family's quest for their own personal identities: a quixotic daughter fights for female equality; a hapless son leads excavations in search of dinosaur remains; and a frequently befuddled wife searches for a sense of purpose. Ambitions are crushed. Lives and fortunes are lost. Unique personalities, combined with bizarre circumstances, serve to make the Parnell family one of the most memorable, if not amusing dynasties the world has ever seen. Author Bio: Joseph Strout was born in New Jersey and educated at Rutgers University. The Parnell Influence represents his fascination with history, as well as his fondness for the town where he was raised.

The Influence Of Oscar Wilde On W B Yeats

This book asserts that Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900) was a major precursor of W.B. Yeats (1865 – 1939), and shows how Wilde’s image and intellect set in train a powerful influence within Yeats’s creative imagination that remained active throughout the poet’s life. The intellectual concepts, metaphysical speculations and artistic symbols and images which Yeats appropriated from Wilde changed the poet’s perspective and informed the imaginative system of beliefs that Yeats formulated as the basis of his dramatic and poetic work. Section One, 'Influence and Identity' (1888 – 1895), explores the personal relationship of these two writers, their nationality and historical context as factors in influence. Section Two, 'Mask and Image' (1888 – 1917), traces the creative process leading to Yeats’s construction of the antithetical mask, and his ideas on image, in relation to the role of Wilde as his precursor. Finally, 'Salomé: Symbolism, Dance and Theories of Being' (1891 – 1939) concentrates on the immense influence that Wilde’s symbolist play, Salomé, wrought on Yeats’s imaginative work and creative sensibility.
