5-0 out of 5 stars When the gods want to punish us...
Edith Wharton was sort of an American Jane Austen, in that she wrote almost exclusively about the society of her time. However, I have found Wharton to be better than Austen, if for no other reason than Wharton's characters have more depth--Wharton's characters are immediately recognizable as people. Ethan Frome was one of her most famous novels, and it is actually a departure for her, since it occurs in a rural Massachussetts town rather than turn of the century New York, but the stifling society presence is still here, and the story is very much a tragedy, just like her other works. However, I found this book to be even more devastating than The House of Mirth.
4-0 out of 5 stars Jerry Springer - early 20th century version
"Ethan Frome" is basically the classic literature version of a chick-flick on Lifetime.While normally I wouldn't watch the movie, the book is wonderfully written and engrossing.There's love, tragedy, a surprise ending, and a heavy dosage of emotion evoking scenery - a great story.
4-0 out of 5 stars Starkfield Setting Not Such a Bleak Read Afterall
I enjoyed reading Edith Wharton's classic, Ethan Frome. The book has gained many responses, varying by each reader, whether it be an impressive or dreary read; however, I had the ability to see past the monotonous, uneventful, and bleak storyline. Wharton paints a vivid landscape of the New England weather and emotionless quality of each character. Though these characters appear impassive, Wharton subtly indicates the self-conflict within each character. Despite the repetitiveness of the characters' tone and mood, Wharton leads the storyline to its peak, and just when you assume something unexpected is bound to occur, the story falls back into its predictable state. The book itself moves along slowly, though Wharton's writing style engages you and allows you to continue on. I especially enjoyed reading the last chapter or so of the novel. The unanticipated ending made the read all worthwhile. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Gang forum
The idea of this book -- a collection of short stories that explore the rich phenomenon of why people ride motorcycles -- is terrific; but the execution is disgusting. Anyone genuinely clueless and curious about why people ride would get a perverse enlightenment from SHE'S A BAD MOTORCYCLE. Just one story from a Hell's Angel perspective would have been plenty. Instead, most of the selections are from motorcycle gang members who are too busy bragging about raping, terrorizing, torturing, and pillaging to bother with good writing. Few ever get around to the subject of what motorcycle riding means to them.
2-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing and very uneven
My favorites chapters in this anthology were Ted Simon's from Jupiter's Travels, Robert Fulton's from One Man Caravan, and of course, Robert Pirsig's from Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance (which is a great read as well as a great ride).Eric Burdon's piece on Steve McQueen wasn't half bad either.3-0 out of 5 stars When it's good, it's REALLY good. The rest is marginal.
I make a point of bringing a motorcycle book to read when my husband and I go on our annual bike tour. This year, I brought Bad Motorcycle. It's an interesting and eclectic collection of stories, essays and a poem (yes, it sucked. More on that later).Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Vey Informative Research about H.D.
I read this book as part of a graduate project on H.D. It was very informative about the nature of H.D.'s poetry, especially as it concerns encoded language. The comparisons drawn between Sappho's writing and H.D.'s poems show a linear connection between the poets in their subjects, speech and rhythms. H.D.'s images can be understood as a continuation of an ongoing conversation with the ancient Greek poet. H.D.'s interest in palimpsests is another interesting connection and influence in her writing. H.D. was lyrically attuned to Sappho's intent, and many of her poems are enriched by this layer of understanding. Collecot focuses on several poems in depth to capture the sense of what H.D. was trying to do with her work. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Stories
The first reviewer obviously can not read or lacks the ability to comprehend deep stories. This book is full of wonderfully sad stories about suffering. They are a reflection of the evil we can inflict on our fellow people. The stories provide lessons of hope and strength inspired by some of the worst attrocities of history. Do not let the poor review sway you. I too had to read many of the stories for classes, but I read the ones not assigned on my own. The book is wonderful and diverse.

1-0 out of 5 stars Just Awful.
It is rare to fine an anthology as bad as this. These stories are just terribble. I had to read this for school. If you have to do the same, under any circumstances, DO NOT. Get a friend to tell you what its about. Pay your sibling. Just don't read it!!

5-0 out of 5 stars America and I -- A Treasure of Stories and Experiences
This beautiful anthology of short stories includes authors born in Europe and born in America.Some authors were familiar, such as Tillie Olsen, Joanne Greenberg, Cynthia Ozick, and Grace Paley.Some became wonderfulnew introductions, such as Mary Antin, Edna Ferber, and Rebecca Goldstein. Some stories tell of life in Europe; some speak of adjusting to life inAmerica, some speak of being a child of immigrants, and some speak ofowning one's identity. One particularly moving story, "Malinka'sAtonement," took place in a shetl in Europe and told of a poor girl'sdesire to be educated, her misrepresentation that a chicken was kosher, forwhich she believed she must "atone," and, ultimately, therespected rabbi's apology for seeing only the chicken and not the hungrychild and his offer to take her as a student.Another story, "TheGirl Who Went Right," tells of a young immigrant woman's efforts toget a job in a new, big city department store by "Americanizing"her Jewish name and how she soon reclaims both her name and her identity. Yet another story, a personal favorite, "I Stand Here Ironing,"tells of a woman who contemplates her efforts to provide for her family andthe impact it had on her oldest daughter, who she struggles to understand-- as she anticipates yet another conference with the school principal. And one, provocative and powerful story, "The Legacy of RaizelKaidish: A Story," tells of a daugher's moral confrontation with hermother and her own name.The book honors the experiences of women inAmerica and Europe. Joyce Antler has capably organized the stories intofour parts, from Europe, through the immigrant experience, and into the1980's.Since first reading America and I in the early 1990's, I havegiven the book to my friends, their daughters, my neices, and cousins asbirthday, Bat Mitzvah, and Chanukah gifts.I have used some of the storiesfor discussion groups, and I recall some in anecdotes I tell my children orin insights I quietly contemplate.The book is a treasure. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars What was left unsaid...
While the definitive overall Brontes biography is Juliet Barker's 'The Brontes', and the various Bronte-related works of Edward Chitham are invaluable in their own right, this still stands as an important contribution to understanding the Brontes, and Charlotte above all.
3-0 out of 5 stars The Life of Charlotte Bronte? What life?
Have tried to read Elizabeth Gaskell's biography of Jane Eyre several times but found it so depressing that I couldn't get through the first chapters.I thought it would be easier on tape which, to some extent it is. However, the content is no less depressing and tragic. The family live at Howarth Parsonage, an isolated place in the north of England. There are six children, two of whom die from tuberculosis and consumption in their school years; the mother dies young;the brother dies of alcoholism and Emily and Ann both die in their 20s. The tragedy is that of extraordinary talent snuffed out so early in life.
5-0 out of 5 stars At the intersection of time and eternity
Mrs. Gaskell understood a man's or woman's life to be lived within a social and natural context -- and her deployment of anecdotes and impressions of the North of England in the early pages of this book is captivating.But she also understood us to be souls, present to but distinct from God.Hence, even though in a few instances Gaskell's facts may been correctible (which the editor has done for us in this Penguin Classics edition), she is concerned with truth, and this gives readers the opportunity (rarely offered by modern entertainments) to escape from the trivial. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The Light Emerging from the Smoky Darkness
I have had the pleasure of having Ms. Edvige Giunta as a professor and a mentor in my life.It was an experience that I hold and will always hold close to my heart.She had always been so supportive of my work and others' work that it filled me with immense joy when I heard that she published her own book.She is a brilliant writer and is quite eloquent and evocative when it comes to knitting two different cultures together, through the magic of her words and the gift of her heart.Read her book- I recommend it, a hundred times for eternal life and I guarantee that her vision will change your life...

5-0 out of 5 stars Breaking silences and giving voice to women's experiences
Edvige Giunta writes eloquently of the nuances of ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality as it pertains to Italian American women writers. She has excavated the rich mother lode of an important cultural literary tradition that has too long been overlooked and undervalued. The literary "accent" that Giunta so keenly identifies lies in being "other", outside the mainstream, accepted elite, white male literary point-of-view. The candance of Italian American women's writing is deep and resonant and as diverse as the women who put pen to paper. It echoes our relationships to time, place, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation--and gives voice to our multi-varied identities. Giunta's book sheds light on an important literary lineage, identifying both established and emerging Italian American women writers. Her contribution to the Italian American literary criticism is invaulable and long overdue. Giunta's prose is as compelling as her thesis. This book speaks to scholars, writers, and readers of all backgrounds. Read it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Women, Cyborgs, and Cyberculture
Whether you are merely intrigued by how women are represented in cyberculture, or doing serious research on how women are being affected by technology, this book is a great place to start. Not only does it provide a wide-ranging anthology of the best writing on the subject, including an amazing bibliography (I love bibliographies), but it also includes a number of excerpts from science fiction books portraying women and technology. Not only is this book giving me a lot to think about, it has provided a reading list it will take me quite a while to plough through. Well worth the price and a must for anyone writing seriously about cyberculture or cyberfeminism. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An inspiring collection of essays
I had never read any of these 11 previously published pieces before, so I really felt like I hit the motherlode when I chanced upon this collection in the local library.Scholarly, yet entertaining and compulsively readable; not a combination one often encounters. From Anais Nin thru Margaret Mitchell, Ayn Rand, Hannah Arendt and 8 more women, this book sketches an unforgettable miniature of each and even dishes the dirt with elan.

5-0 out of 5 stars Literary criticism that's scholarly, crisp and relishable.
Exhaustively researched and knowledgeably sifted, Passionate Minds: Women Rewriting the World is an incisively engaging work that exhilarates the mind while also extending beyound the mere bland categorization of 'biography' and 'women's studies,' for it stretches quite easily into other academic dimensions: sociology, psychology, history and economics; it is a work that is more than what it is promoted to be. Pierpont's succinct yet smooth academic prose is honed and streamlined; excess language and descriptive clutter is cast aside, and only the germane pith, the be-all and end-all, is critically dissected. Writing is a soul-searching craft-that more often than not-offers an intellectual and spiritual cartharsis. It is a powerful talent (one of many) by which many positive changes can be enacted, for when asked why they do what they do, writers, broadly speaking, would never hesitate to say, "The pen is mightier than the sword." The twelve writers, authors in Passionate Minds would have used the above-in varying degrees-as a life philosophy. From Hannah Arendt and Ayn Rand to Olive Schreiner and Marina Tsvetaeva, the lives profiled were not of simple women who 'slothfully' mused over global issues and then did nothing about them. The concerns, though mostlyrelegated to a specific gender, nonetheless, addressed all of humanity. Economic equality and intellectual stimulation, rather than artistic expression, would be at the top of the pyramid in this case. The broader essence of the book is how a person or persons broaches a subject that is of pressing concern to him or herself. What tools could and can be used to rectify specific areas that have long ago been ignored or deemed too weighty in intensity to even approach? In Ayn Rand's case, could it be done through collectivism or individualism? For Hannah Arendt and Mary McCarthy especially, collectivism would tower, the two probably being the modernized propellant of the literati activist, now being emulated. But the one thing that linked all these women was the printed word, printed utterances that came in the form of essays, novels, plays, journalism, poetry. These were the weapons of transformation (see Mae West, Doris Lessing, Anais Nin), racial exploration (see Zora Neale Hurston, Margaret Mitchell) and onward. What is remarkable about these lives is that they either rose from abject poverty and anguish or dived headlong into it in order to write, to do something that had a greater and profound good that was not yet visible to the masses: "I write for thee/I suffer privately/ And glory comes when I am gone..."These writers had battle scars from sacrifice. And the improvement is so little.

Thank God for collections----I missed some of these pieces upon their first appearence in The New Yorker, and they're all fascinating and well written.Pierpont combines the skills of essayist, biographer/profiler, and critic with assurance and wit.It's hard to praise this book too highly.Here's hoping she comes out with another collection in this vein before too long. ...

I bought this book believing that I would in some way know Catherine more intimately after reading most of her novels.I came away with an understanding of what her life was like and I greatly appreciated that aspect of the book.I was dissapointed in that a lot of it went back and forth between her life and the characters she wrote about. I felt as if I were traveling down a long bumpy road and then backing up at times. It could have been written much better in my opinion.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Girl from Leam Lane and other tales out of school
I found this book very interesting and well written. Catherine Cookson's candidness gave this reader an insight into a background that allowed the author to create multi-faceted characters who persevere despite any obstacles that may arise.

5-0 out of 5 stars Feminisms: An Anthology of Literary Theory and Criticism.
This anthology is a must for anyone studying feminist criticism. It covers a broad range of topics and as well is relatively new (1997). Read it and learn about this new and exciting field, or read it simply to enrich yourcurrent knowledge of criticism. Either way, this one is a keeper!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must For Any Feminist Scholar
This is one of those books which i purchased for a class yet intend to keep well after the class is over.It's full of articles on a broad range of topics by a diverse group of writers and I often find myself flippingthrough it and reading articles which haven't been assigned for class - asure sign that the book is a "keeper". ...
