William Stafford Books, William Stafford poetry book Mozart's Death Authors: William Stafford
Publisher: Springer
Published Date: 1991-10-23
Categories: Music
There is a macabre fascination in the spectacle of one so brilliant, dying so young, in such tragic circumstances. Was Mozart poisoned? Was he irresponsible and childish, dying from debauchery and dissipation? Did his wife contribute to his downfall? Was he driven to destruction by being ostracised as a rebel? Did his genius render him incapable of normal human contact and worldly prudence? Did he die because he had accomplished his mission as an artist and burnt himself out? Was he the victim of a run of bad luck? From 1791 to the present such stories have flourished; this book examines their development and the evidence for them.

William Stafford Books, William Stafford poetry book The Way It Is Authors: William Stafford
Publisher: Graywolf Press
Published Date: 1998-02-01
Categories: Poetry
So, the world happens twice-- once what we see it as; second it legends itself deep, the way it is. William Stafford filled his life and ours with poetry of challenge and consolation. The Way It Is gathers unpublished poems from his last year, including the poem he wrote the day he died, as well as an essential selection of works from throughout his career. An editorial team including his son Kim Stafford, Naomi Shihab Nye, and Robert Bly collaborated on shaping this book of Stafford's life in poetry. The poems in The Way It Is encompass Stafford's rugged domesticity, the political edge of his irony, and his brave starings off into emptiness. What emerges here is Stafford's faith in language and the soul, those things that form the base for his artistic gyroscope. This collection reveals the depth and breadth of a poet for whom the art was to make a life richly lived.

Upon a famous Aprile morn,
