This book offers a phenomenologically-inspired approach to sharing stories via poetic inquiry, a research approach that is rapidly gaining popularity within psychology and the wider social sciences. Owton begins by framing how poetry can appeal to all of the senses, how it can offer readers a shared experience of the world and why poetry should be used as a research approach. Chapters explore various aspects of poetic inquiry including poetry as data, turning data into poetry, poetry as literature review and poetry as reflective writing. The final chapters consider how one might draw on characterising traits to judge poetic inquiry, and how poetry might resonate with audiences to effect wider dissemination of research. This interdisciplinary exploration will be of interest to scholars in psychology, sociology, social work, and literature, as well as to medical and sports practitioners. Helen Owton is a chartered psychologist and Lecturer in Sport and Fitness and Associate Lecturer in Social Psychology at The Open University. She has published numerous papers employing creative methodologies, specifically poetry and art, and won the Citation for Excellence award from the Qualitative Methods of Psychology section of the British Psychological Society.
Helicon Drive is the first installment of the Poetic Score series, a new form of audiobook entertainment created by Adam and Eric Sullivan of Quiet Place. This unique series is characterized by having a full musical composition underneath each narrated chapter, enhancing emotion and capturing the true essence of a story. Helicon Drive is a glimpse into the lives of Daniel, a medical resident, and Beenie, a waitress in her mid-20s - complete strangers who were destined to meet. This is a short story about the birth of hope and love in the midst of tragedy and confusion. Helicon Drive sheds light on love´s eternal grasp, not bound by this body, space, or time. The notion that love and a sense of purpose from this life can be carried to the next. After the death of a patient, Daniel becomes rattled with confusion, denial, and a fading sense of self. In the wake of this tragedy, he finds Beenie. Despite their undeniable attraction to one another, each remains focused on the search for the answer - an answer to the problem that burdens them both. After days of sharing intense glances and enticing body language, Beenie would give anything to speak to this man who now haunts her dreams. Daniel can´t deny Beenie´s beauty and becomes consumed by it. Someone he initially thought to be a distraction from his search has now become his object of desire. By the time the lovers realize that what they were searching for was each other, life tries to rip them apart. Now, caught in the vice grip of life, is Daniel and Beenie´s love strong enough to last? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Valdini, Jessica Booth, Andrew Connors, Katie Nettle.

Meaning, feeling and expression - the experience of inwardness - matter most in human existence. The perspective of biopoetics shows that this experience is shared by all organisms. Being alive means to exist through relations that have existential concern, and to express these dimensions through the body and its gestures. All life takes place within one poetic space which is shared between all beings and which is accessible through subjective sensual experience. We take part in this through our empirical subjectivity, which arises from the experiences and needs of living beings, and which makes them open to access and sharing in a poetic objectivity. Biopoetics breaks free from the causal-mechanic paradigm which made biology unable to account for mind and meaning. Biology becomes a science of expression, connection and subjectivity which can understand all organisms including humans as feeling agents in a shared ecology of meaningful relations, embedded in a symbolical and material metabolism of the biosphere.

The 98-stanza meter-and-rhyme translation of ´´Legenda Luceafarului´´ - an entrancing masterpiece by Mihai Eminescu (1850-1889), the Romanian national poet - captures the essence of the original work´s musicality and poetic nuance. It is the story of a young princess´ longing and impossible love for the immortal star who, sharing her love, takes human form and tries to become mortal. The Eve Star´s flight back through time and space to Father Demiurge in search of it, as part of this enticing romantic tale, combines poetic substance and existential insights that will delight any listener. Mr. Sahlean is justly considered the premiere translator of Eminescu into English. This rendition has no sense of limitation or restriction found in some translations and is truly rewarding when heard aloud. ´´The Legend of the Evening Star´´ was twice staged as a theatrical-musical-choreographic production off-Broadway in 2005 and 2008. 1.

This innovative picture book aims to reintroduce children to their innate relationship with the world around them by sharing many of the surprising ways that we are all connected to the natural world.Grounded in current science, this extraordinary picture book provides opportunities for children to use their imaginations and wonder about some big ideas.
