The Personal Past in the Poetry of Robert Penn Warren Floyd C. Watkins. THEN & NOW The Personal Past in the Poetry of ROBERT PENN WARREN FLOYD C. WATKINS THEN & NOW THEN & NOW The Personal Past in. Front Cover.
Author: Floyd C. Watkins
Publisher: University Press of Kentucky
Category: Literary Criticism
Taking a new approach to the study of Robert Penn Warren's imposing and still growing poetic canon, Floyd C. Watkins has found in the poems what he describes as a "poetic autobiography" unparalleled in American letters. Drawing on interviews with Warren, members of his family, and contemporaries from his hometown, but keeping the poetry itself constantly at the center of his vision, Watkins shows how the poetry has grown from the experience of the boy and man and from his contemplation of his family's and his country's history. He traces through the poems a family chronicle, moving from the frontier to the late twentieth century, and set in a landscape that is clearly derived from the Kentucky of Warren's boyhood. The little town of Guthrie, divided by railroad tracks, with its two burial grounds for whites and blacks, becomes in the poems a town of both memory and imagination, peopled by characters many of whom are recognizable to Warren's contemporaries. The images of a black man fleeing through swampy woods outside the town, of a grayfaced man who led a lynch mob, of a mad druggist making a list of people to poison, all have counterparts in Guthrie's history. Then and Now is a revealing and provocative study of the poetic process in a poet who is thought of as the originator of the biographical fallacy.

I have felt for many years that there have perhaps never been a 75 to 100 years that have seen so much progress and change, both for good and bad. Life has always been mixed with both good times and bad times, and so it will until the Lord returns. But this type of good and bad is not what I am writing about. In the horse and buggy era and early years of the car, there were a lot of hard times: poverty, sickness, and epidemics, but by and large, the moral fiber of most people was much better than now. There are many things to blame, but the sad part of this is that I believe the Christians are the most to blame for not getting involved. The scapegoat idea: it's all in the Lord's hands, we don't have to worry or do anything. In the meantime, much has happened because of the ACLU, our court system, the pressure of the entertainment world and the Democratic party, and too many Republicans voting wrong. It is already illegal for the kids to pray in school or even take their Bible to school. They are trying to get "In God We Trust" off our money and take for God and Country out of the Pledge of Allegiance However, I feel there is a trend now of thinking seriously about God and morals and hard work, and there will have to be if this world is going to last. So I am dedicating this to my nine children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and anyone who reads it that it will help them see what a change has taken place in the 1900's and that it might help them on the road of life, plus hopefully bring some enjoyment.

Author: Robert F. Kirk
Publisher: Author House
Flying in the early 20th Century was dangerous business. Aircraft were made of sticks and cloth and engines failed at alarming rates. Those who flew risked both accidents and death. However, some saw this stumbling attempt to master the skies as an opportunity to bring the human race forward. They had a vision of stylish travel in the skies combining comfort, speed and profit. Such was the vision of Transcontinental Air Transport’s Lindbergh Line that began the first scheduled coast-to-coast airline passenger service in 1929. Relive the adventure of that time and travel with the author as he flies what remains today of the “Lindbergh Line.”

The story of Jamie Renee Coleman’s life and the unfortunate circumstances that she has endured helped to pass a state law that now protects other people and their rights from being permanently sterilized without their knowledge or permission. Roger, my lawyer, said, “Jamie, I am so sorry for you for what your mother and this doctor did to you.” I could see the tears welling up in his eyes. I asked him what I should do now. My lawyer said, “Jamie, I don’t know if you know this or not, but there is a law on the books because of your life story. It took your experience to pass this law that says no one can be sterilized unless they are in a mental institution. I know it was all wrong and that they should have to pay for what they have done to you.” He then told me that he had talked with Dr. Kline and the doctor wasn’t very nice to him, questioning him like he did. Roger threatened the doctor by telling him that he had better tell the truth about all of this or that he would have a big lawsuit on his hands. Roger said it took over an hour to convince him, but that the doctor finally told him the truth about what the surgery had done to my body. I could never have children. Jamie Renee Coleman

According to the American dream, hard work and a good education can lift people from poverty to success in the "land of opportunity." The unskilled immigrants who came to the United States from southern, central, and eastern Europe in the late 19th and early 20th centuries largely realized that vision. Within a few generations, their descendants rose to the middle class and beyond. But can today's unskilled immigrant arrivals—especially Mexicans, the nation's most numerous immigrant group—expect to achieve the same for their descendants? Social scientists disagree on this question, basing their arguments primarily on how well contemporary arrivals are faring. In Italians Then, Mexicans Now, Joel Perlmann uses the latest immigration data as well as 100 years of historical census data to compare the progress of unskilled immigrants and their American-born children both then and now. The crucial difference between the immigrant experience a hundred years ago and today is that relatively well-paid jobs were plentiful for workers with little education a hundred years ago, while today's immigrants arrive in an increasingly unequal America. Perlmann finds that while this change over time is real, its impact has not been as strong as many scholars have argued. In particular, these changes have not been great enough to force today's Mexican second generation into an inner-city "underclass." Perlmann emphasizes that high school dropout rates among second-generation Mexicans are alarmingly high, and are likely to have a strong impact on the group's well-being. Yet despite their high dropout rates, Mexican Americans earn at least as much as African Americans, and they fare better on social measures such as unwed childbearing and incarceration, which often lead to economic hardship. Perlmann concludes that inter-generational progress, though likely to be slower than it was for the European immigrants a century ago, is a reality, and could be enhanced if policy interventions are taken to boost high school graduation rates for Mexican children. Rich with historical data, Italians Then, Mexicans Now persuasively argues that today's Mexican immigrants are making slow but steady socio-economic progress and may one day reach parity with earlier immigrant groups who moved up into the heart of the American middle class.

Horst H. Geerken lived in Indonesia from 1963 to 1981. As well as working for a major German industrial firm, he travelled widely in the enormous Indonesian archipelago. After 1981 he visited the country every year - after 1993 also accompanied by his partner Annette Bräker. Annette Bräker got to know South East Asia from a very early age: her father was an orientalist, and she accompanied him, and sometimes both parents, on a number of research trips, where she came to have a special affection for Indonesia. Her university courses on Malay Studies, Comparative Religion and Oriental Art History brought her into particularly close contact with South East Asia. Horst H. Geerken has published several non-fiction books dealing with Indonesian history and culture, such as Der Ruf des Geckos (A Gecko for Luck or The Magic Gecko). His most recent publication (Hitlers Griff nach Asien Hitler's Asian Adventure) is a study of the influence of the Third Reich on the independence movement in the Netherlands East Indies down to the final achievement of independence under President Soekarno. These books have confirmed Horst H. Geerken's reputation as an expert on the region, not only in Germany and Indonesia, but also elsewhere. They have all appeared in German, English and Bahasa Indonesia. The current volume is a captivating account of travels in the giant Indonesian archipelago from 1964 to the present. It can be highly recommended for its humour and human interest. (G. H. H.)

Praise for My Songs of Now and Then “This is a smart, moving and unpretentious memoir of a long life lived with vigor and strength. The biographical narrative touches on important 20th century events in Europe but the real story is the author’s humanity, her womanhood, and her connection to others as she made a life in America. At a number of points, I stopped reading to shed a tear. When I was done, I wished, most of all, to have the same kind of equanimity and grace in old age.” Joan Jacobs Brumberg, Prof. emerita, Cornell University Author of the award winning books: Fasting Girls: The Emergence of Anorexia Nervosa as a Modern Disease, and The Body Project: An Intimate History of American Girls. The essays in this book are fragments of my truth, to share with loved ones, perhaps to make you laugh, or cry, to let you glimpse into my life, my family, my memories, my dreams and my accomplishments. I write of how it all got started, of belonging and not belonging; the journeys of my life, journeys in space and in personal development, growing up and growing old and older yet. I explore my Jewish identity as it evolves through the seasons of life, beginning with family wanderings in pre-war Western Europe, becoming an American Jewish mother and grandmother, embracing a mid-life career in psychotherapy, and examining the joys and challenges of late life, all leading to my Ethical Will. Family recollections and photographs are interspersed with brief poems.

Then…Now…Whenever… is composed of twelve short stories that span centuries and continents from Victorian England, to contemporary America, to the realm of vivid imagination. THEN is composed of four stories prior to the mid 1930’s, three of which are set in Victorian England with an inquiry agent at the time of Sherlock Holmes. The last of the four is the story of a miner looking for work in the coal mining fields of Kentucky during the Great Depression of the 1930’s. NOW is also composed of five contemporary stories. Two, regarding an ex cop from Cleveland who drinks and smokes too much and finds himself neck deep and personally involved in two murders while living in New Mexico. Two more involve ordinary people thrown together by circumstance and hard luck with unpredictable results, while the final story of this group is one of far-off Pakistan and good intentions gone astray. WHENEVER makes up the last three: macabre, nightmares of horror that visit in dreams on the darkest of nights when we are alone with our own demons. Dreams that one hopes will never be repeated…

Jesus: Then, Now, Ever. This book fails. How could it not? The author is human; the subject beyond human ken. Still, the challenge compels. Tell the tales, teller, the many tales that still for all can teach. Jesus as a child; his mother guiding his early inquisitive steps then, as a dutiful son, miracles reluctantly began. Jesus, years, miles, and lives removed, hitchhiking rides from farmers, visiting querulous college students unclear yet whom to trust, commiserating with a mother-who-wasn't-but-still-believes-she-is, Jesus being challenged and mocked on worldwide TV by Satan himself. Satan telling how he trained a deer to fire a rifle that when he came upon the Christian Hunters in the woods one day""he knew how to shoot them before they got him. Jesus thrown out of a church for not dressing right, bringing together a wounded GI and the enemy soldier who had just tried to kill him, attending a world-changing church conference without recognition, working and proselytizing in an American car wash, joining rescuers in the throes of great natural disaster near where he had preached and saved souls centuries before. Jesus visiting John on the isle of Patmos to discuss the heresies of TV in centuries to be, rehabbing an artist who through all his agonies never ceased believing in God, noting one sentence that spoken by man or woman is never true, teaching us all how not to pray, offering a college religion class the right to ask him any one question and he would honestly answer. And they did and he did and we learn it all. So many lessons to teach and lives to mold. The mission of God's Son never seeming to end. Certainly not to be captured in a human-wrought book.
