The Truth the Dead Know by Anne Sexton
For my Mother, born March 1902, died March 1959 and my Father, born February 1900, died June 1959 Gone, I say and walk from church, refusing the stiff procession to the grave, letting the dead ride alone in the hearse. It is June. I am tired of being brave. We drive to the Cape. I cultivate myself where the sun gutters from the sky, where the sea swings in like an iron gate and we touch. In...
Sylvia's Death by Anne Sexton
For Sylvia Plath O Sylvia, Sylvia, with a dead box of stones and spoons, with two children, two meteors wandering loose in a tiny playroom, with your mouth into the sheet, into the roofbeam, into the dumb prayer, (Sylvia, Sylvia where did you go after you wrote me from Devonshire about rasing potatoes and keeping bees?) what did you stand by, just how did you lie down into? Thief — how did...

Two Deathdays For the Price of One!
deadwriters: Today we would like to tip our hats to both Charlotte Brontë and John Donne! Though these two writers come from different time periods and approached their craft quite differently, they share perhaps the most intimate thing two people can share - their deathday! Donne died on this day in 1631 of stomach cancer and remains one of the...

thisismydancecard: A hybrid novel, according to Alberto Hernández, can be seen as a hybrid image-text novel, not a children’s book, graphic novel/comic or gift book, but a book where written text and graphic devices such as illustration, photography, information graphics or typographic treatments may interject in order to hold a readers’ interest.

Lewis Carroll CHAPTER I Down the Rabbit-Hole Alice was beginning to get very tired of sitting by her sister on the bank, and of having nothing to do: once or twice she had peeped into the book her sister was reading, but it had no pictures or conversations in it, `and what is the use of a…

Barefoot by Anne Sexton
Loving me with my shows off means loving my long brown legs, sweet dears, as good as spoons; and my feet, those two children let out to play naked. Intricate nubs, my toes. No longer bound. And what’s more, see toenails and all ten stages, root by root. All spirited and wild, this little piggy went to market and this little piggy stayed. Long brown legs and long brown toes. Further up, my...

Lorelei by Sylvia Plath
It is no night to drown in: A full moon, river lapsing Black beneath bland mirror-sheen, The blue water-mists dropping Scrim after scrim like fishnets Though fishermen are sleeping, The massive castle turrets Doubling themselves in a glass All stillness. Yet these shapes float Up toward me, troubling the face Of quiet. From the nadir They rise, their limbs ponderous With richness, hair heavier...

I cannot believe this website exists. It is about the things that people find in used books. I’ve always been fascinated by this subject and have collected the different little trinkets that I’ve discovered in my secondhand books. You wouldn’t believe what some people press between the pages of a book; maybe it’s their attempt at not being forgotten.
webleed-stardust asked: I have a question about the D.H. Lawrence novel you posted earlier, what war is taking place in the setting of the novel?
