In Search of the Hidden Treasure By George Rapanos

In Search of the Hidden Treasure, “The Pearl of Great Worth” is a book dealing with religious transformation. It is an aggregate of various sources as diverse as Buddha, Meister Eckhart,... More > Edna St. Vincent Millay, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Walt Whitman, and the Bible. This book is both a spiritual autobiographical affirmation of my faith and encouragement to those who wish to follow a path that may lead them to spiritual fulfillment. It evolved from a religious revelation which I had in 1984, and is an anguished, forthright attempt to come to grips with the religious issues which I found hostile and unfriendly and contained in daily life. It is not my intent to reveal a set of truths about God, as much as it is an attempt to convey through prose, poetry, quotations, parables, wisdom tales and my own mythological story and poetic works, the intuition of reality that touches the heart, and burns and stirs the soul. I have written what I feel is crucial and important in describing the reality of truth.< Less

Earl LeClaire’s poems are written in everyday language. It is as if while reading them he is sitting in the room talking to you. However, that said, his poems are also, structured. Christmas... More > Story, for example, is a “prose poem” but put down in a well-arranged form.

The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym By Edgar Allan Poe
Hardcover: List Price: $37.95 $30.36 | You Save: 20%
Prints in 3-5 business days
Edgar Allan Poe's only novel, The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket is a pivotal work in which Poe calls attention to the act of writing and to the problem of representing the truth. It is... More > an archetypal American story of escape from domesticity tracing a young man's rite of passage through a series of terrible brushes with death during a fateful sea voyage. This rousing sea adventure follows a New England boy, Pym, who stows away on a whaling ship with its captain's son, Augustus. The two boys, who find themselves repeatedly on the brink of discovery or death, witness many hair-raising events, including mutiny, savagery, cannibalism, and frantic pursuits. An unusually restrained Edgar Allan Poe strips away his more poetic tendencies as well as his luscious prose in this story, his only novel. The result is an adventure that is grim, Grim, GRIM... and so ends up feeling much like Poe after all, despite the shift in style.< Less
