Great maps

I've always loved maps and anyone interested in them will love this colourful history. From 1500 BCE to today, it covers our attempts to represent the world with lots of space for imagination. It has been an inspiration for me for the trilogy I'm working on (small plug there!).You'll find a wealth of information that also becomes an historical commentary.
Interesting that Google Maps are included. Though a great bit of technology Google will never come close to offering the thrill of a book like this. To hold, and smell, and touch, each page turn is a joy. Love live real maps and long live real books!">View 

Confessional poetry

I don't think there's anything I can add to the critical analysis of her work that hgasn't already been said.

However, I can simply say this is confessional poetry of great beauty, hard to read and not be moved and a little disturbed.

Life is a challenge for all. You can hide away from your emotions and fears or try to meet them and understand them. Sylvia Plath certainly confronted hers. Whether she ever came to terms with them, only she would know.

I can learn from her, try and express real feelings and not write formula stuff for predictable markets for the sake of making a few bucks.
