For the past two or three years Miss Brooks has been a favorite entertainer in swanky New York night clubs but deserted the bright lights a few months ago to try for a comeback in Hollywood. Miss Brooks' stage career started when she was in her early teens. From the Horace Mann intermediate school, Miss Brooks went to New York where she studied dancing in the Denishawn school. She later went on a tour as the youngest girl in the Denishawn troupe.

Extractions: b. 1954 The earth was full of life and there were dandelions growing out the window, thick as thieves, already seeded, fat as big yellow plungers. She let my hand go. I got up. "I'll go out and dig a few dandelions," I told her. Outside, the sun was hot and heavy as a hand on my back. I felt it flow down my arms, out my fingers, arrowing through the ends of the fork into the earth. With every root I prized up there was a return, as if I was kin to its secret lesson. The touch got stronger as I worked through the grassy afternoon. Uncurling from me like a seed out of the blackness where I was lost, the touch spread. The spiked leaves full of bitter mother's milk. A buried root. A nuisance people dig up and throw in the sun to wither. A globe of frail seeds that's indestructible. Love Medicine Biography - Criticism Selected Bibliography Related Links In a 1985 interview with Laura Coltelli, Karen Louise Erdrich was asked if she considered herself to be a poet or a storyteller. Erdrich replied, "Oh, a storyteller, a writer." Her own life story, as well as her novels and poems, are what make Louise Erdrich so widely known. Erdrich, the oldest of seven children, was born in Little Falls, Minnesota, on June 7, 1954. The daughter of French Ojibwe mother and German American father, Louise Erdrich is a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa. Erdrich's large extended family lived nearby, affecting her writing life from an early age.

William Butler Yeats - 38.05 Article reviewing Yeats' work by his contemporary, American poet louise Bogan. http://www.theatlantic.com/unbound/poetry/yeats/bogan.htm
Extractions: W ILLIAM Butler Yeats, at the age of seventy-three, stands well within the company of the great poets. He is still writing, and the poems which now appear, usually embedded in short plays or set into the commentary and prefaces which have been another preoccupation of his later years, are, in many instances, as vigorous and as subtle as the poems written by him during the years ordinarily considered to be the period of a poet's maturity. Yeats has advanced into age with his art strengthened by a long battle which had as its object a literature written by Irishmen fit to take its place among the noble literatures of the world. The spectacle of a poet's work invigorated by his lifelong struggle against the artistic inertia of his nation is one that would shed strong light into any era. The phenomenon of a poet who enjoys continued development into the beginning of old age is in itself rare. Goethe, Sophocles, and, in a lesser degree, Milton come to mind as men whose last works burned with the gathered fuel of their lives. More often development, in a poet, comes to a full stop; and it is frequently a negation of the ideals of his youth, as well as a declination of his powers, that throws a shadow across his final pages. Yeats in his middle years began to concern himself with the problem of the poet in age. He wrote in 1917, when he was fifty-two:
Extractions: Mostly the past days have been spend trying to put some semblence of order into my wool room. Why, you ask? Well, Miss Carolyn is coming to visit and I don't want her to faint dead away. At least I've cleared a small path through the mountains of wool so she can get to my computer. Despite all my destashing, words can't really describe my stash. I'm sure she'll tell you all about it if she recovers from the shock. Anyway, she arrived safe and sound yesterday, despite the rather dramatic events at Roissy yesterday. I'll be going up to Paris tomorrow to spend some time there with her. And then Thursday is the big day: a knit in with people coming from all over: Chicago, New York, Brussels, Lyon, Montpellier (me), and a lot of Parisians. I think there will be about 12-15 knitters attending. I'm very excited about this. I haven't been able to organise a get-together since before my cancer episode and have sorely missed the contact with other knitters. Pictures and compte rendu to follow. Carolyn will be coming down south with me for the weekend and we'll do the tourist route down here: Carcassonne, la Couvertoirade, St Guilhem le Désert perhaps.
Extractions: Birmingham, Alabama To baby-boomers, Louise Fletcher is best known for her role as Nurse Ratched in the critically acclaimed, One Flew Over The Cuckoos Nest . For Generation Xers however, she is known as the cunning Kai Winn on the hit sci-fi series, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine . But one thing is certain, whatever role she chooses to play, viewers come away with the gift of having experienced a brilliant actress at work. Fletcher's talent is far-reaching in that she has the ability to convincingly play any type of character she so wishes to play; from vulnerable to powerful, scattered to intelligent, but ultimately, she is at her best whenever she crawls into the skin and mind of the adversary; as seen in her skin-chilling portrayal of the deranged grandmother in Flowers In The Attic
