Cultural Writing. Poetry. Essays. Women Studies. No one voice can entirely convey the emotional toll a soldier's military service has on loved ones. Here are 38 voices. Step into the experiences of homefront women spanning from World War II to the Iraq War-mothers, wives, daughters, sisters, fiances and friends-who, in their own words, tap into the reservoirs of unconditional love required of everyone who has ever loved a soldier. Share their wide range of feelings from the stress of giving up a loved one to military service, to the anguish when warriors are killed in action; from the anxiety of long separations, to the upheaval that can accompany living with wounded veterans. Glimpse other nuances of the military lifestyle like searching for personal identity and viable concepts of home in the face of deployments and frequent relocations. Each piece tells a unique story, and collectively they illuminate the pathos of this unsung microcosm of American society, and manage to uplift us in a way only raw honesty can.

'Hear and attend and listen...' Rudyard Kipling is a supreme master of the short story in English and a poet of brilliant gifts. His energy and inventiveness poured themselves into every kind of tale, from the bleakest of fables to the richest of comedies, and he illuminated every aspect of human behaviour, of which he was a fascinated (and sometimes appalled) observer. This generous selection of stories and poems, first published in the acclaimed Oxford Authors series, covers the full range of Kipling's career from the youthful volumes that brought him fame as the chronicler of British India, to the bittersweet fruits of age and bereavement in the aftermath of the First World War. It includes stories such as 'The Man who would be King', 'Mrs Bathurst', and 'Mary Postgate', and poems from Barrack-Room Ballads and other collections. In his introduction and notes Daniel Karlin addresses the controversial political engagement of Kipling's art, and the sources of its imaginative power. About the Series: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the broadest spectrum of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, voluminous notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

The bestselling, award-winning author’s “fiercely freewheeling collection of stories and poems about the tragicomedies of ordinary lives” (O, The Oprah Magazine). Winner of the PEN/Faulkner Award for Fiction, War Dances blends short stories, poems, call-and-response, and more into something that only Sherman Alexie could have written. Ordinary men stand at the threshold of profound change, from a story about a famous writer caring for a dying but still willful father, to the tale of a young Indian boy who learns to value his own life by appreciating the deaths of others. Perceptions change, too, as “Another Proclamation” casts a shadow over Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, and “Invisible Dog on a Leash” limns the heartbreak of shattered childhood illusions. And nostalgia for antiquated technology is tenderly rendered in “Ode to Mix Tapes” and “Ode for Pay Phones.” With his versatile voice, Alexie explores love, betrayal, fatherhood, alcoholism, and art in this spirited, soulful, and endlessly entertaining collection, transcending genre boundaries to create something truly unique. This ebook features an illustrated biography including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

An ungrateful nation did not give the Vietnam Veteran the acknowledgment he or she was due. This book is an effort to correct that enormous travesty. This work does not glorify the war in Vietnam, rather it is the intention for this work to serve to illuminate the experiences of the individuals who spent their year (or years) in-country. The entire focus is on how Americans stationed there lived, fought, died, and otherwise did their duty. The reader should be aware that there will be many hundreds of stories that will never be told from that war, due to a lack of generous listening to the Vietnam Veteran. These poems here provide "snapshots," rare glimpses of how it was, then and there. The poems in this work are written from interviews with Vietnam Veterans. The interviews were conducted over a two year period, 1992-1994. All events and experiences are true to the best memory of the interviewed Veteran. Names of specific military technology have been used to enhance the culture of the experience.
