How did the human mind evolve and how does it emerge, again and again, in individual lives? In The Poet’s Voice in the Making of Mind, Russell Meares presents a fascinating inquiry into the origin of mind. He proposes that the way in which mind, or self, evolved, may resemble the way it emerges in childhood play and that a poetic, analogical style of thought is a biological necessity, essential to bringing to fruition the achievement of the human mind. Taking a fresh look at the language used in psychotherapy, he shows how language, and conversation in particular, is central to the development and maintenance of self. His theory incorporates the ideas from William James, Hughlings, Jackson, Janet, Hobson, Gerald Edelman, Wolf Singer, Vygotsky and others. It is illuminated by extracts from literary artists such as Wallace Stevens, W.S. Merwin, Virginia Woolf, Joseph Conrad and Shakespeare. Encompassing psychotherapy; psychoanalysis; evolution; child development; literary criticism; philosophy; studies of mind and consciousness, The Poet’s Voice in the Making of Mind is an engaging, ground-breaking and thought-provoking work that will appeal to psychotherapists and psychoanalysts, as well as anyone interested in the emergence of mind and self.

By Bob Crew ISBN: 9781847471178 Published: 2007 Pages: 170 Key Themes: poetry Description This book of poetry provides us with a wide-ranging picture of mental health in the UK and the contribution that poetry can make to a better understanding of our mental condition and the reasons for it. The eighteen poems in this collection are written in remembrance of the late Roy Crew, who suffered from schizophrenia in Britain from the 1940s until the 1960s. They are written by his brother, Bob Crew, who is a published poet who visited Roy regularly and observed him carefully throughout his long illness. They tell the story of Roy's illness and ultimate survival and they are the kind of poems that Roy could not have written for himself because his condition was too severe and he had no apparent talent for poetry. About the Author Bob Crew is a published author and poet whose others books - Sea Poems, Gurkhas at War and The Beheading & other True Stories - are currently in the bookstalls and on Amazon.

Melody ist eine unerschütterlich positive Person, die sich von keiner Härte des Schicksals kleinkriegen lässt. Sie ist elf Jahre alt, hat ein fotografisches Gedächtnis und ist die cleverste Schülerin auf der ganzen Schule. Doch niemand weiß es. Die meisten Menschen glauben, dass sie unfähig ist zu lernen. Melody ist durch eine zerebrale Kinderlähmung schwerstbehindert und kann weder sprechen noch laufen noch schreiben. Es ist zum Wahnsinnigwerden, dass sie sich nicht verständigen kann - bis sie eines Tages doch einen Weg findet, sich auszudrücken. Leider ist nicht jeder dazu bereit, sie anzuhören.

The title poem from this collection is set on an island that has been a site of pilgrimage in Ireland for over a thousand years. A narrative sequence, it is an autobiographical quest concerned with 'the growth of a poet's mind'. The long poem is preceded by a section of shorter lyrics and leads into a third group of poems in which the poet's voice is at one with the voice of the legendary mad King Sweeney. 'Surpasses even what one might reasonably expect from this magnificently gifted poet.' John Carey, Sunday Times

Ein höllisch schönes Geschenk! Hämischer, sarkastischer und politisch unkorrekter als Ambrose Bierce hat wohl kaum jemand die Welt beschrieben. In gewitzten Stichworten von A wie «Abendland» bis Z wie «Zyniker» erklärt er den Lauf der Dinge, gesehen durch die Brille eines abgebrühten Pessimisten. In dieser Schmuckausgabe mit schwarzem Samtbezug und roter Folienprägung lauern viele Stunden teuflisch guter Unterhaltung! Bei der Zusammenstellung seiner Misanthropismen ließ «Bitter Bierce» die reine Willkür walten. So folgt auch in der Übersetzung auf die «Braut» das «Brechmittel», auf «Betragen» das Wort «betrügen» und auf den «Erzbischof» der «Esel». Bierce’ Spott gilt sozialen, politischen und charakterlichen Missständen, seine Geißel trifft Machthaber und Autoritäten jeden erdenklichen Kalibers. Mit weit über 1000 Stichworten präsentiert die vorliegende Ausgabe diesen Klassiker der satirischen Literatur so umfangreich wie nie zuvor in deutscher Sprache.

The Yucca Mountain Project deep in the Nevada desert is the first planned long-term nuclear storage facility. The project is designed to contain nuclear waste for ten-thousand years, the amount of time it will take for the waste to no longer be radioactive. It is an ambitious project, especially in light of the fact that in this century alone we lacked the foresight to anticipate Y2K. Given this daunting responsibility, the project employs an artist, a botanist and an architect to contribute visual warnings to the site, in a manner decipherable to future generations. Conrad imagines an influential poetry professor who insists that the project also include a poem, a great poem, an epic poem. It is this poem that brings us to the center of an extended circle of minor poets who are continually upstaging, back-stabbing and falling in and out of love with one another. Set against the vibrant backdrop of Chicago, this is a story of science and poetry, manipulation and intrigue, and the lengths to which people will go for their passions.
