Bartlett's Poems for Occasions by Geoffrey O'Brien
Book DescriptionJust as BARTLETT'S FAMILIAR QUOTATIONS is the volume everyone reaches for when seeking an elusive citation, BARTLETT'S POEMS FOR OCCASIONS is the ultimate resource for finding the poem that will hit just the right note for that special family milestone, public address, or private moment of contemplation. What poems do you read when a country has gone to war? To mark the beginning of a new career or the end of an old one? To celebrate a new love or console a grieving and bereft family? Organised in three parts - the Cycles of Nature, the Phases of Human Life and the Enduring Themes - the book is the perfect vehicle to translate the wisdom and expression of the greatest works of poetry into our everyday experience. Among the many poets included here are Charles Baudelaire, William Blake, Catullus, Emily Dickinson, Goethe, Ogden Nash, Li Po, Sappho, Shakespeare, Dylan Thomas, Edith Wharton and others.

Ten years in the making, the eighteenth edition of the longest-lived and bestselling collection of quotations in history introduces hundreds of new quotations from writers all over the world.
Browser's Ecstasy, Paperback (March 2003)
A prose poem about reading, this is a playful, epigrammatic nocturne upon the dream-state one falls into when "lost in a book," and the uncanny, trance-like pleasure of making silent marks on paper utter sounds inside one's head.
Dream Time, Paperback (May 2002)» View all books by Geoffrey O'Brien
A mix of memoir, novel and cultural history, this work looks at sex and drugs and rock 'n' roll in the American 1960s. It conveys the impact of the late 60s counterculture and the ways in which the psychedelic and countercultural currents of the era played themselves out in younger lives.
