Changing Light: The Eternal Cycle of Night and Day

Sold and Delivered by - RUTHGENDLER

Product Description

Changing Light is a radiant collection of soul writings on the cycle of night and day. It gathers together sunset prayers, lullabies, creation stories, sun stories, and poems about evening, sleep, awakening, and day from many cultures across time. Among the writers represented are James Agee, Annie Dillard, Emily Dickinson, Neruda, Mary Oliver, Rilke, Rumi, Sappho, Whitman, and Yeats. Changing Light is a book both for people who love poetry and those who have been scared way from it. In the introduction Gendler writes, "In our quest for easy answers, in a culture of marketing where light is lite, and luminescence is a shampoo, most people don't listen to poetry. In our time we commonly view poetry as a rarified form that doesn't have much to do with our lives. Many of us stay away, afraid it will either be too abstract and inaccessible or sentimental and precious. "Yet, poetry may be the most precise language we have for talking about the world. Poets who give language to states where the soul meets the world; the inner and outer intersect are charged and changed by the energy at the edge." Gendler's art works, including collages, batiks, and mixed media pieces, accompany the text and add another layer of meaning and experience to these carefully chosen reflections on time and light. 100 pp. ©1991 Harper Collins New York, NY ISBN-13 978-0-06092-447-8 ISBN-10 0-06-092447-0
