Book Summary:

In this seasonal treasure, Newbery Medalist Susan Cooper's beloved poem heralds the winter solstice, illuminated by Caldecott Honoree Carson Ellis's strikingly resonant illustrations. So the shortest day came, and the year died . . . As the sun set on the shortest day of the year, early people would gather to prepare for the long night ahead. They built fires and lit candles. They played music, bringing their own light to the darkness, while wondering if the sun would ever rise again. Written for a theatrical production that has become a ritual in itself, Susan Cooper's poem "The Shortest Day" captures the magic behind the returning of the light, the yearning for traditions that connect us with generations that have gone before -- and the hope for peace that we carry into the future. Richly illustrated by Carson Ellis with a universality that spans the centuries, this beautiful book evokes the joy and community found in the ongoing mystery of life when we celebrate light, thankfulness, and festivity at a time of rebirth. Welcome Yule!

Book Summary:

Torn from her home in the Dales as a child, Nadelma has made a place for herself as the head cook in the Witch Queen of Azrimar’s castle. She stays in the background of the busy court and uses her gentle magic gifts sparingly to help others. More or less content, she’s made peace with the hard facts of her life. Romance, marriage, a family – all beyond her dreams any longer. Then Halvor, an ambitious Dales lord rides into the city, bringing his mercenaries to serve the king, with the promise of a rich reward, including a title and an estate. The only catch? He has to marry a highborn Azrimaran noblewoman to seal the treaty. Fate conspires to throw Nadelma and Halvor into each other’s company and the attraction is instant and deep but both resist the attraction. She knows she can never have him for herself. He must fulfill the treaty to secure a safe place for his people to live, since their holding in the Dales was destroyed by the black magic of the Shadow. Marriage to a noble damsel of the king’s choice is his fate. Until he met Nadelma he thought his heart was frozen by the loss of all he cared for, back in the Dales. Now he knows better but his people must come first. The situation is hopeless…or is it? For the king declares the city will celebrate Winter Solstice and hold a ball, where wishes and dreams just might come true. WINTER SOLSTICE DREAM is a novella in the Magic of Claddare world, which began with THE CAPTIVE SHIFTER. This book is a standalone story, featuring Nadelma, who readers met briefly in the first book.

The Celtic seasonal wheel is based on eight festivals – Winter Solstice, Imbolc, Spring Equinox, Beltane, Summer Solstice, Lughnasadh, Autumn Equinox and Samhain. Together, these lead us through the cycle of the year, aligning our awareness with the seasonal pattern of the earth beneath our feet. In this, the third in a series of e-books on the solstices and equinoxes within this sacred cycle, Danu Forest reveals the secrets of the Winter Solstice, when the sun appears to stand still and the days are at their shortest. This is a festival of renewal and rebirth; a time for rest, reflecting on the past year and preparing for the new one. Throughout the text, Danu skilfully revives ancient traditions and encourages us to reconnect with nature, and ourselves, with a host of practical rituals. Decorate your home with handcrafted orange pomanders and holly wreaths. Meditate on the changing heavens with Celtic star lore. Cast a mistletoe spell for creativity, make mulled wine charm sachets or imbue a brew and enjoy next to a roaring Solstice fire. Experience the magic of rebirth with a magical guided visualization. Based on sound extensive research, as well as many years of practical experience through both personal practice and teaching, the book will act as a guide for weaving a new, more soulful way of living into readers’ everyday existence.

Book Summary:

"Desperately and delightfully unfashionable" was how reviewer Richmond Lattimore characterized Timothy Steele's Uncertainties and Rest when it first appeared in 1979. Sapphics against Anger and Other Poems appeared in 1986 and solidified and extended Steele's reputation as, in the words of Publishers Weekly, "one of the finest contemporary poets to write in meter and traditional forms." Sapphics and Uncertainties: Poems 1970-1986 draws together these two books into a single volume. This collection offers the most substantial gathering yet from a body of work widely praised for its tonal and thematic range and for its wit and warmth of feeling.

Book Summary:

This volume is the first comprehensive and in-depth discussion written in English of the Confucian tradition in the context of the intellectual history of Korea. It deals with the historical, social, political, philosophical and spiritual dimensions of Korean Confucianism, arguably the most influential intellectual tradition, ethical and religious practice, and political-ideological system in Korea. This volume analyzes the unique aspects of the Korean development of the Confucian tradition by examining the role of Confucianism as the ruling ideology of the Choson Dynasty (1302-1910). It investigates Confucianism’s social and cultural construction, and intellectual foundation in highlighting the Korean achievement of the Neo-Confucian discussion on "human nature and its principle" in light of the Chinese Neo-Confucian development. The volume also surveys the most influential Korean Confucian scholars discussing their philosophical significance in relation to one of the most fundamental Neo-Confucian discourses, namely the li (principle) and qi (material force) debates, to elucidate how metaphysical theories shaped the socio-political factions of the Choson Dynasty. Furthermore, issues concerning the relationship between Confucianism and Buddhism and other native traditional belief systems are also included in this volume. The volume explores the Confucian confrontation with modernity, encounter with the "Western Learning" including Western science and Catholicism, and the Confucian struggle with modernity in dealing with issues such as democracy, human rights, and gender in modern Korea. Individual contributors of this volume are either well established senior scholars or promising young scholars in the field.

Book Summary:

The poems in Joyce Wilson's Take and Receive combine a remarkable clarity of insight with a honed sense of the possibilities inherent in formal verse. In "The Entry of the God," a poem about married life, the perfect iambic line "We bought a house that no one else would want" offers a sudden, sure look at the couple in question, united in choosing what has been overlooked, in finding their own way. With geographies as close as the poet's own garden and as far away as Egypt, Wilson immerses the reader in the things she has seen and lived. This collection is - to borrow a phrase from her title poem - a "tonic against grief," bracing and brave. - Jennifer Barber, author of Works on Paper A variation on the phrase "give and take," Joyce Wilson's Take and Receive, at first, appears to be about gender dynamics, but it is ultimately about the nature of power and perception. In addition to being a master formal poet, a scholar, and an editor, Joyce Wilson is a gardener. She knows the overarching plot there. Wilson is someone who gives and receives, but also takes. There is a paradoxical reason we like the predatory stories, as in her award-winning poem "The Speckled Hawk," which suggests "That might explain divisions in her ways -- / The softest down, the sharpest knife, / The fierceness in the cry that she betrays." In daily life, most of our challenges are more subtle, and that's why we need Joyce Wilson, with her sense of pattern and skill: and her memorable, wise voice. - Kim Bridgford, author of A Crown for Ted and Sylvia Praise for The Springhouse: Like the springhouse that gives her collection its title, Joyce Wilson's work offers both bracing freshness and mystery. In her poems about animals and insects, she honors the beauty of the natural world; and in her moving poems about her sister, she acknowledges its pain. Wilson richly rewards her readers' attention by her own patient fidelity to her subjects. - Timothy Steele, author of Toward the Winter Solstice
