Echoes of Desire variously invokes and interrogates a number of historicist and feminist premises about Tudor and Stuart literature by examining the connections between the anti-Petrarchan tradition and mainstream Petrarchan poetry. It also addresses some of the broader implications of contemporary critical methodologies. Heather Dubrow offers an alternative to the two predominant models used in previous treatments of Petrarchism: the all-powerful poet and silenced mistress on the one hand and the poet as subservient patron on the ...

For most of my life I have felt the pull of two influences. On one side there is the learning, performing, accomplishing influence that urges me to turn everything into a project and complete as much work as I possibly can. On the other side there is a call to inner peace and stillness, communing with nature, building relationships, creating experiences and embracing the moment. I think there is a time and a place for both.
As I've aged, the need for rest has increased. Not rest from a physical perspective, although there is some of ...

There's a thin black road
I have traveled many times.
It leads to peace
In so many ways.
It's kind of hard to describe
For the road's oft unclear.
It unfolds to me
Like a lovely gift
One word at a time.
Then, music fills in the gaps,
Making worries fade away,
As unexplainable peace pours in.
There's a thin black road
It leads me to peace.
When good or ill tidings come
To threaten my equilibrium,
I will travel that road
And return to peaceful calm.

These poems were written between 1997 and 2003. They evoke a strong sense of Scottish history, on the land and at sea, in places ranging from Aberdeen to Cromarty (the main setting, especially for local myths such as Captain Reid's mermaid and the Sutors) and further north into the Highlands. Although there is a heavy sense of decay, in buildings, machines and people, this is due to the passing of time. Only the landscape remains pure and undefiled.
