Bennett, Jane. Influx and Efflux: Writing Up with Walt Whitman. Durham, NC: Duke University Press, 2020.
I received a promotional email for this book and ordered it because I love Whitman and the book sounded fascinating. The publisher labels it as “Political Theory” on the back cover, but the Library of Congress subject headings all relate to literature, so it promises to be an interesting hybrid.
Dueck, Cameron. Menno Moto: A Journey Across the Americas in Search of My Mennonite Identity. Windsor, ON: Biblioasis, 2020.
I like road trip narratives and Mennonite narratives, so I pre-ordered this book when I heard about it a few months ago, and it came this week.
Kaplan, Stuart R., et al. Pamela Colman Smith: The Untold Story. Stamford, CT: U.S. Games Systems, 2018.
As I’ve continued my explorations of the tarot over the past year, I’ve become more and more interested by the art of different decks. I’ve been reading some about the traditional Rider-Waite deck recently and decided to learn more about its artist, Pamela Colman Smith, and thus bought this book.
Rosenstock, Gabriel. Haiku Enlightenment. Expanded ed. N.p.: Poetry Chaikhana, 2019.
I recently read a review of this book in Frogpond and decided to order it because I am interested in the spiritual aspects of haiku alongside its literary aspects.
