The Song Poet: A Memoir of My Father , Hörbuch,...

ggf. zzgl. Versand

In the Hmong tradition, the song poet recounts the story of his people, their history and tragedies, joys and losses; extemporizing or drawing on folk tales, he keeps the past alive, invokes the spirits and the homeland, and records courtships, births, weddings, and wishes. Following her award-winning book The Latehomecomer, Kao Kalia Yang now retells the life of her father, Bee Yang, the song poet, a Hmong refugee in Minnesota driven from the mountains of Laos by America's Secret War. Bee lost his father as a young boy and keenly felt his orphanhood. He would wander from one neighbor to the next, collecting the things they said to each other, whispering the words to himself at night until one day a song was born. Bee sings the life of his people through the war-torn jungle and a Thai refugee camp. But the songs fall away in the cold, bitter world of a Minneapolis housing project and on the factory floor until, with the death of Bee's mother, the songs leave him for good. But before they do, Bee, with his poetry, has polished a life of poverty for his children, burnished their grim reality so that they might shine. Written with the exquisite beauty for which Kao Kalia Yang is renowned, The Song Poet is a love story - of a daughter for her father, a father for his children, and a people for their land, their traditions, and all that they have lost. 1.

“I was born,” he began, “by a dumpster at noon, In a broken down doghouse with only one room, With only one window we used as a door, With rats in the rafters and mud on the floor.”Raised by a single parent, the outlaw collie Sam and his seven siblings run wild and free, feasting on castaway food in garbage cans and chasing after humans to scare them, all for the fun of it. Then one day disaster strikes. Sam and his brothers and sisters mistakenly frighten the wrong human. The Catchers arrive at the dilapidated doghouse in the middle of the night, guns in hand. Sam is wounded. But he manages to escape.The next day, Sam is found by a keeper, a kind human who takes the dog home and sets about training him.“He healed my wound and he purchased a tag. I trained to the collar and re-learned to wag. It wasn’t all easy. Oh no, to be sure. I yearned for the smell of the pack and the poor. I longed for my snout in the wind and the fun, For the thrill of the free in the rush of the run. But slowly I learned that I had to obey. The Keeper was mine if I wanted to stay.”The Trial of the Outlaw Collie Sam is so far outside the box that it’s difficult to label as anything but absolutely unique. Part poem, part fantasy, part courtroom drama, and part - a very large part - the true story of the real outlaw collie Sam, a Heinz-57 variety mongrel dog whose life and adventures were the inspiration for the story.The Trial of the Outlaw Collie Sam and its companion story about the real Sam are both captivating tales. The story of the trial itself is beautifully told. It bounces along in an almost musical fashion - especially when the narrative poem describing it is read aloud. It provides an intimate glimpse into how “guilt” or “innocence” is established for our animal friends.And the story about the real outlaw collie Sam? Well, that is worth listening to too, if for no other reason than to avoid making the same mistakes that the 1. Language: English. Narrator: Devon Michael Scott.

The Use of the Arabesque in  Edgar Allen Poe's ...

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject American Studies - Literature, grade: 2,3, University of Göttingen, 16 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: 'And the raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting On the pallid bust of Pallas just above my chamber door; And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon that is dreaming, And the lamp-light o'er him streaming throws his shadow on the floor; And my soul from out that shadow that lies floating on the floor Shall be lifted -- nevermore!' (Poe 28) These famous lines are from an often quoted poem by Edgar Allen Poe, one of the most famous American Authors of all time. He was a writer of all kinds of literary genre but well know for his mystery or detective stories. Who does not know 'The Tell-Tale Heart' or was shocked by the horror in 'The Fall of the House of Usher'? Poe was a magnificent writer of Gothic Novels and is still today a well-known and well referred author when it comes to horror or even science fiction. His stories and plays are often adopted for the theatre and also Hollywood is incapable of not portraying his well-known horror stories. Next to his famous works Poe, like many authors of the 19th century, wrote arabesque stories. Although there is his known Collection of Arabesque and Grotesque Stories from 1840, it is unknown to many that he followed truly an oriental writing tradition and set footprints into this new genre like Johnson, Moore, Byron and others and developed the arabesque term to a new limit. But the question is if these stories are really written in the oriental tradition. Many critics are unsure up to this day if Poe really wanted to write in the arabesque or grotesque tradition and if he was aware of the fact that these two terms are of different background and do not, like many people think, just refer to the same definition. This term paper will focus on Poe's use of the arabesque tradition in his stories 'The Visionary' from 1834 and 'Ligeia' from 1838. It is the aim to find out parallels between both stories regarding the oriental tradition. Therefore I will first explain the term Arabesque because there are many versions of what an arabesque could be: a style of writing, the writing itself, a wall paper etc. Also I will focus on the term 'grotesque' because this term is often, especially when used with reference to Poe's literature, mixed up with the term `arabesque`. And at last I will have a closer look on the use of the term arabesque in Poe's stories because, as I said before, he wrote more tales of the grotesque and the arabesque than the two I am going to refer to.

In this next installment of the magical series: 'Jinn began to chant her spell… 'Magical universe hear my call, Transport us through the vortex wall, Get us safely from here to there, To rescue the Princess from Brother Grimm's lair' As she finished speaking, she raised her right hand and sent up a bright red ray of light out of her fingers. It formed a red cloud and when Jinn clicked her fingers it started to rain. Hundreds of drops of golden liquid began to fall on them. Kaia watched as the drops hit her arm and the places where it touched her, began to disappear. It was almost as if someone was using a giant eraser to rub her out. She looked around and saw that everyone else seemed to also be disappearing. The next minute, a huge flash of golden lightning shot out of the clouds. It hit the floor just in front of where they were standing. This opened up a huge swirling hole in the ground. It was like when you pulled the plug out the bath and all the water swirled around as it ran down the drain. Only this was more like a volcano because the colors were red and gold like hot lava. 'Get ready. When I say so, jump into the vortex,' Jinn told them. 'Jump!' shouted Jinn a few moments later…. The last thing Kaia saw as they all jumped into the vortex was Stefan's huge grin. 'Never a dull moment when Jinn's around,' she thought. Scroll up to get your copy of 'Dragons at Dessert Time' to find out what happens next! Fans of Merriweather Hope have said the Fairy Tales & Magical Adventures series is perfect for lovers of the Magic Tree House books.
