The Essence of a Young Poet is about a teenager (Juan Manuel) that started facing a lot of problems and heartaches as soon as he entered high school and encountered reality face to face. Throughout the book he goes through a lot of shifts of emotions as he encounters those problems. On his freshmen year he fell in love with a junior that played with his feelings and then broke his heart; as a result of that, he fell into a deep depression and started heading toward a dark path. Without the presence of his father, he had nobody to turn to that he could trust and express himself to, to help him with his struggles, so he turned his attention toward suicide. Unable to commit suicide, he decided to go to church after he received an invitation from a friend. From that point, his life started to change in a positive way; he was no longer depressed or struggling with his life because he learned to trust God. Shortly after that, he met a gorgeous and nice girl (Keyshla) in which he felt in love with after she helped him pick up the broken pieces of his heart. They were the perfect couple without a doubt but for some reason the perfect relationship came to an end. He was sad once again because he really thought that she was the one and he didn’t want that relationship to end. Unable to fix the problem, he moved on and started dating someone else who turned out to be a bigger problem than what he expected. Unable to fill what was missing in his heart, the relationship eventually came to an end. He remained single after that and just focused on his future and God, leaving the past behind.

Survival of the Young Poet is a fascinating work that combines narrative of a novel with poetry. It tells the story of a poet, focusing more on verse than it does on plot and characterization. Written in prose, it is frequently interspersed with verse. The protagonist is the title character, and other characters speak and write to each other in beautiful, flowing poetry. From the legend of human hours to the dim time of struggle lies the strive of aging pain of poets. When the day dies to live no more, that's when the story begins: the fighting pen of poets and the humiliation of struggle. Survival of the Young Poet portrays untold stories of poets struggling to survive in an unveiling society.

For more than a quarter of a century, Pat Schneider has helped writers find and liberate their true voices. She has taught all kinds--the award winning, the struggling, and those who have been silenced by poverty and hardship. Her innovative methods have worked in classrooms from elementary to graduate level, in jail cells and public housing projects, in convents and seminaries, in youth at-risk programs, and with groups of the terminally ill. Now, in Writing Alone and with Others, Schneider's acclaimed methods are available in a single, well-organized, and highly readable volume. The first part of the book guides the reader through the perils of the solitary writing life: fear, writer's block, and the bad habits of the internal critic. In the second section, Schneider describes the Amherst Writers and Artists workshop method, widely used across the U.S. and abroad. Chapters on fiction and poetry address matters of technique and point to further resources, while more than a hundred writing exercises offer specific ways to jumpstart the blocked and stretch the rut-stuck. Schneider's innovative teaching method will refresh the experienced writer and encourage the beginner. Her book is the essential owner's manual for the writer's voice.

A chronology and further reading lists make this volume indispensable for any student of Spenser.

Frances Sheridan (1724-66) won acclaim in her day as both a playwright and novelist. Her most famous work, the sentimental novel Memoirs of Miss Sidney Bidulph (1761), found favour with Samuel Johnson, while her comedy The Discovery (1763) was staged by David Garrick at Drury Lane. Her fame was later eclipsed by that of her son, the playwright and politician Richard Brinsley Sheridan (1751-1816). Written by Alicia Lefanu (1791-c.1844), her granddaughter, this 1824 publication reaffirms the significance of Frances Sheridan's own work as a writer. Recounting her successes and incorporating her own recollections, the book reveals a woman admired both for her literary output and for her character. This work also includes reflections on the life of her son, whose early writing was influenced by that of his mother. Thomas Moore's two-volume biography of Richard Brinsley Sheridan has also been reissued in this series.

This important collection of poems, which spans a career of nearly fifty years, demonstrates Robert Mezey's development as a notable stylist, thinker, and poet. Moving from adaptations of Latin and Spanish poems to prayers and lamentations, from elegies and plaints of lost love to flights of comic and ribald fancy, his poetry reaches to the extremes of human experience. The death of friends and family, one's self-betrayals and self-infatuations, the comical confusion of a worried mother, the art of a doomed Jewish child in a Nazi concentration camp—all these human dramas play out bravely against the backdrop of the beautiful, indifferent path. Mezey can portray aging and death or sing of love and nature with an accuracy of perception and an intensity of feeling heightened by formal clarity and restraint. With his razor-sharp eye for the singular detail, he describes missed opportunities and moments of human weakness and loss in gestures so real the reader will ache. In capturing the pain of religious doubt, the pangs of tenderness and elation, and the vagaries of fate so honestly, Mezey has wrought a high finish to each poem so that, in the words of Donald Justice, they become "absolute classics of calm and beauty."

A wise and witty revival of the Roman poet who taught us how to carpe diem What is the value of the durable at a time when the new is paramount? How do we fill the void created by the excesses of a superficial society? What resources can we muster when confronted by the inevitability of death? For the poet and critic Harry Eyres, we can begin to answer these questions by turning to an unexpected source: the Roman poet Horace, discredited at the beginning of the twentieth century as the "smug representative of imperialism," now best remembered—if remembered—for the pithy directive "Carpe diem." In Horace and Me: Life Lessons from an Ancient Poet, Eyres reexamines Horace's life, legacy, and verse. With a light, lyrical touch (deployed in new, fresh versions of some of Horace's most famous odes) and a keen critical eye, Eyres reveals a lively, relevant Horace, whose society—Rome at the dawn of the empire—is much more similar to our own than we might want to believe. Eyres's study is not only intriguing—he retranslates Horace's most famous phrase as "taste the day"—but enlivening. Through Horace, Eyres meditates on how to live well, mounts a convincing case for the importance of poetry, and relates a moving tale of personal discovery. By the end of this remarkable journey, the reader too will believe in the power of Horace's "lovely words that go on shining with their modest glow, like a warm and inextinguishable candle in the darkness."
