It is remarkable to think that if Ibsen had died after Loves Comedy, his eighth play, he would have died without leaving the world a masterpiece, and most countries would not have heard of him.However, while Loves Comedy is not yet the breakthrough masterpiece, it is Ibsens best work to date, and one that can be considered on its own merits, rather than simply as an interesting reflection of better plays to come. Certainly there are some motifs that anticipate later plays and a feckless romantic hero who prepares the way for Peer Gynt. However, the play stands alone in its points of interest.The play centres on Falk, a romantic poet who rejects the compromises of love represented by marriage. This involves him mocking lovers at various stages along the way to a dreary marital respectability. There is his friend, a new lover who is already finding his romantic dreams compromised by interfering relatives. Another guest is engaged and used to write romantic verse to his fiancé, but this has become lost amidst the cares of earning a living. There is a married couple who began life romantically as an elopement, but now they are settled into matrimony with many children and cannot even remember how they met.Against all these, Falk tries for a romantic relationship on a higher level with Svanhild, free from all restraint and cautious timid considerations for the future.Set against Falk is his rival for Svanhild, Guldstad. Guldstad is a foil - and ultimately a match - for Falk. He has not a poetic or romantic bone in his body and stands for respectable and safe married life. However, he is not a frustrated romantic trapped in a mundane world, like the other lovers. He is every bit as confident and assured as Falk. Where Falk lives for today and is reckless about the future, Guldstad offers common sense and security.Ultimately, Svanhild reluctantly chooses Guldstad and security, knowing that her romantic love for Falk will one day be tarnished. In this way, the play ends where many Ibsen plays begin - with a heroine who has chosen the safe, respectable partner over the wild and exciting one, and an egotistical hero who has been willing to sacrifice his lover, rather than compromise.The ending is superficially happy in that Falk retains his freedom, Svanhild finds a more kindly and sensible lover and the other couples breathe a sigh of relief as Falks failure appears to undermine his attacks on their own relationship failings. However, it is a wistful, sad ending and not a truly happy one.The language is frequently poetic, as in many of Ibsens early plays. Ibsen wrote poetry, though this hasnt endured as well as his plays. He preserves a poetic sensibility throughout his plays, and appeared to be returning to that in his final works.It is possible that the quality of the verse is not any better than that in earlier, more banal plays. However, it feels fresher and livelier, perhaps because we engage more with the lovers. Falk is more than just a conventional romantic. He is also egotistical and witty, and we enjoy his attacks on the other lovers who are doomed to a dreary existence. Similarly, Svanhild is not just an insipid shadow, although she is there to inspire our hero, a fault that often marks the heroines of early Ibsen plays. She is also a failed romantic, straining to escape the constraints of her respectable upbringing. This lends a certain mournful cynicism to her personality, and an extra bite to her exchanges with Falk.Overall, the play is a strong one and shows the mark of an increasingly confident dramatist.
A great Cajun read about a road trip to Croak Orleans and the swamp animals along the way.Not long ago, I was reading a piece about Kristin Davis, an actress from the show Sex and the City who mentioned the books she reads to her children. One of the books I was not familiar with. In an amazon search, I found many books by this author, Rhonda Patton. The title Dylan and the Croak Orleans Gang caught my attention right away. I grew up in Louisiana and made many trips to New Orleans. To my pleasant surprise, this book is about a road trip to Croak Orleans. Cajun books for kids are not easy to find, and I quickly downloaded for my four-year old niece. This book is as beautifully written as it is illustrated. The characters are animals that are common to the Louisiana area. The colors used throughout will be very familiar to anyone native to this state. The story line is about a band that slowly comes together as a result of the other animals Dylan the frog meets on his trip. One of my favorite parts is all of the animals being frightened when an alligator wants to befriend them, but they are quickly swayed by his musical abilities and invite him into the band. I do not usually carry on like this about books, but it has been a long time since I came across a childrens book this original, enriching, and fun. I will be one clicking more from this author!

January Machine is a book-length poem comprised of sonnets and sonnet sequences interrupted by static. Rooted in the modern American moment, this poem seeks to understand the intersection of Whitmans plurality and Oppens shipwreck of the singular. In the midst of geographic dislocation, the lyric I becomes a place; I am the I undone, immersed / in perspective, Schlegel writes. I am an American sigh, a limit / of language, a limit of privilege, / in this excess, a thousand exits.
Born in Portland, Oregon, in 1909, Margot Austin was an author and illustrator of childrens books, and was educated at the National Academy of Design, and the Art Students League in New York City. She is chiefly remembered for her series of picture-books featuring a group of small animals - Peter Churchmouse, Gabriel Churchkitten, Trumpet (the puppy) - who lived in the church of Parson Pease-Porridge. In addition to her books, Austin also contributed stories and artwork to Jack and Jill Magazine. She died in 1990, at the age of 81.
Perhaps you have prepared for WTSHTF or TEOTWAWKI with respect to food, water, self-defense and shelter. But what about communication? Whenever there is a disaster (hurricane, earthquake, economic collapse, nuclear war, EMF, solar eruption, etc.), the normal means of communication that were all reliant upon (cell phone, land line phone, the Internet, etc.) will probably be, at best, sporadic and at worst, non-existent. As this author sees it, short of smoke signals and mirrors, there are three options for communication in trying times (1) GMRS or FRS radios; (2) CB radios; and (3) ham or amateur radio. In this book he considers each of these options to come up with the most acceptable one. Included in this volume are the names and addresses of the approximately 7,800 FCC licensed amateur operators in the Hill Country region of Texas, organized by city, then sorted by street, then sorted by house number ... just in case.
