This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Theresa Ast, daughter of a Polish immigrant who arrived in America in 1951, and whose professional career has been spent teaching European History in Southern colleges and universities, has just published her first book of poetry. Like most people she wrote poetry while in college, but soon the demands of career and family put an end to that. After a 35 year hiatus she began writing poetry again in 2012 shortly after her father's death. Dressing the Bones contains poems about life, family, sorrow, myth, and joy. They are lyrical, never far from narrative and often contemplative. The author says, "It is as if all the busy years of family and university teaching were not creatively barren times as they sometimes seemed, but silent and hidden preparation for the poetry that would emerge late in life. The author grew up in a family of artists, was always surrounded by paintings, photography, and sculpture, so it seemed natural and even necessary, to include the visual in Dressing the Bones. Theresa Ast is currently editing her Polish grandmother's poetry and hopes to release a book of poetry, paintings and sculpture in the near future. Buchnummer des Verkäufers

Inhaltsangabe: Theresa Ast, daughter of a Polish immigrant who arrived in America in 1951, and whose professional career has been spent teaching European History in Southern colleges and universities, has just published her first book of poetry.

About the Author: Theresa Ast is a first-generation American whose Polish family emigrated to America in 1951. After her youngest son entered first grade, she completed her education, eventually earning a Ph.D. (2000) in Modern European History from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. She teaches courses in History and Interdisciplinary Studies at Reinhardt University. As did many people in their late teens and early twenties, Theresa dabbled briefly in poetry. Then the business of raising a family (three sons), historical research and writing, and teaching kept her quite busy for thirty-five years. A little over two years ago, with encouragement from a dear friend, published author – Kathleen Cochran, she began writing essays and then, poetry in her spare time. No one was more surprised than she, at the poems which bubbled up from her subconscious and became the basis for “Dressing the Bones.” For earlier versions of these poems and for a variety of general interest essays on culture, art, history, and politics, please search for phdast7 at HubPages.com As is true of most websites, HubPages contains a great deal of very average and commercially oriented material. However, HubPages is also host to a large number of very fine writers. The monograph “Confronting the Holocaust: American Soldiers Enter Concentration Camps” by Theresa Ast is available through Amazon. Dr. Ast is currently editing her Polish grandmother’s poems and hopes to publish them in the not too distant future. You may contact her at the following address: TLA@reinhardt.edu
