The Road to the Spring PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Road to the Spring free pdf The Road to the Spring is the first book publication of Mary Austin's (1868-1934) poems. Best known for her prose book The Land of Little Rain (1903), Austin was in fact a poet from the beginning of her career to the end, even though she never published a volume dedicated to her own original poetry. Instead, Austin's work came to light in collections of poetry and in prestigious journals such as Poetry, the Nation, the Forum, Harper's, and Saturday Review of Literature, among many others.

The Road to the Spring contains more than 200 poems, most of which can only be found in out-of-print books, magazines, and periodicals, and her unpublished manuscripts archived at the Huntington Library. This singular publication includes her original work, poems she claimed to have written with her grammar school pupils at the end of the nineteenth century, and her translations and "re-expressions" of Native American songs, which often diverge greatly from any other known sources. Warren includes an introduction, laying out Austin's place in American literature and situating her writings in feminist, environmentalist, regionalist, and Native American contexts. He also includes notes for those new to Austin's work, glossing Native terms, geographical names, and the ethnological sources of the Native songs she re-creates.

About James Perrin Warren

Mary Austin was an American writer of short stories, essays, novels, plays, and poetry from the 1890s to 1934. Remembered for her focus on the peoples and environments of Southwestern deserts, she is often thought of solely as a regional author, but she was also a part of early twentieth-century New York's literary scene and the Imagist movement in Modernist poetry.

James Perrin Warren is S. Blount Mason, Jr. Professor of English at Washington and Lee University, USA. He is the author of John Burroughs and the Place of Nature, Culture of Eloquence: Oratory and Reform in Antebellum America, and Walt Whitman's Language Experiment, and has been published in numerous journals and edited collections.
