Under a burning blue sky, among the pine-trees and junipers, the cypresses and olives of that Odyssean coast, we came one afternoon on a pink house bearing the legend: "Osteria di Tranquillita,"; and, partly because of the name, and partly because we did not expect to find a house at all in those goat-haunted groves above the waves, we tarried for contemplation.

Breathe is a collection that explores the heart of Fidel Castro-era Cuba; an outsider's look that is balanced by a weight of empathy to illuminate truths that lie couched between the island's propaganda and the Western media's portrayal. Characters from Europe and the USA in Swimming, Taxi and Sabbatical seem to want to hold on to the indulgences that their countries offer them, while praising Cubans for the more abstemious lives they lead and seeking to sample what the locals experience; in Siempre Luchando, I Never See Them Cry and The Party, romantic liaisons strengthen or buckle under the strain of the minute exploitations that result from the assumptions one makes about the other; the seedy sexual aggression of Luca's Trip to Havana is undercut by the subtle yet intense lust of Breathe; while Leaving Cuba, with its closing image of Havana's night sky, is as eloquently balanced a tale of the lives of everyday Cubans as you will read in a long while - whichever path one takes, something is lost.

Excerpt from Makers of Madness: A Play in One Act and Three Scenes Night! And a black and barren sky With a wet wind in from the coast. And only the kites to make reply To heaving body and pleading cry - Here where the lost battalions lie, I walked last night with a ghost. His face was gray, his hands were red, And a ghostly mare he rode, That wearily stepped, with drooping head, Over the shadowy lines of dead, And rolled her eyes, and shook with dread Under her foam-white load.

Excerpt from By Land and Sky In the following pages I have made frequent reference to the enterprise and achievements of aeronauts in this country in bygone years, dwelling more particularly on the scientific work accomplished under the partnership of Messrs. Glaisher and Coxwell. Ere I had become fairly launched in the task I had undertaken, Mr. Coxwell was suddenly called away from us at a ripe old age, and I treasure a long hearty letter of his - one of the very last he ever wrote - in which he recalls the work for which his professional services were required a generation ago.

Excerpt from Poems Poems. Divided. An empty sky, a world of heather, Purple of foxglove, yellow of broom; We two among them wading together, Shaking out honey, treading perfume. Crowds of bees are giddy with clover, Crowds of grasshoppers skip at our feet, Crowds of larks at their matins hang over, Thanking the Lord for a life so sweet. Flusheth the rise with her purple favor, Gloweth the cleft with her golden ring, 'Twixt the two brown butterflies waver, Lightly settle, and sleepily swing.

Excerpt from Bishop Jeremy Taylor, His Predecessors Contemporaries and Successors: A Biography The principal figure of the subject must appear in the midst of the picture, under the chief light, to distinguish it from the rest. The remark comes from Fresnoy, and illustrates the biography it opens. My object was to present a picture, historical and domestic, in which the strongest lights should fall on one figure - Bishop Taylor; some of his most illustrious forerunners, contemporaries, and successors being grouped around him - representatives of that majestic company of devout and learned men, "With beaming eye, That lifted, speaks its commerce with the sky," who adorned our Church and literature during two hundred years.

Excerpt from O Pioneers One January day, thirty years ago, the little town of Hanover, anchored on a windy Nebraska tableland, was trying not to be blown away. A mist of fine snowflakes was curling and eddying about the cluster of low drab buildings huddled on the gray prairie, under a gray sky. The dwelling-houses were set about haphazard on the tough prairie sod; some of them looked as if they had been moved in overnight, and others as if they were straying off by themselves, headed straight for the open plain.
