This collection of thirty poems by novelist Kyrian Lyndon spans decades throughout the author's personal journey. From the soothingly peaceful to the bizarre, Kyrian runs the gamut of complex emotions that will resonate for many. The poems are poignant-honest, open, and straight from the heart, heartbreaking and with humor, embracing light and dark, hope and despair, triumph over adversity. She writes: Oh, for the beauty of the melody, The harmony sprinkled about. He is but a glowing midge Longing to play an Aeolian harp, While holding you still and entranced With the celestial beauty of a god. Ah, but for the pain! The seraphic master sets about casting shadows So that I cannot see the sun, Leaving but a vista of tomorrow's joys and treasures. The current focus becomes a precursor Along the predestined path, A traverse on the bridge. That's my all-too-rigid honeybee, Leaving me with a concave and sunken universe, A hollow path in my heart and my soul. 'A Dark Rose Blooms' also contains an excerpt from 'Provenance of Bondage, ' the first book of Kyrian's forthcoming 'Deadly Veils' series. We meet the series protagonist, Danielle DeCorso, as she tries to cope with a devastating event she can't fully remember. She struggles in isolation and despair, as her perception of what she does recall differs from that of her cousin and her friend.
The Bloomsbury Companion to M. A. K. Halliday is a comprehensive and accessible reference resource to one of the world's leading and most influential linguists.
Born in 1925, Halliday is the figure most responsible for the development of systemic functional linguistics (SFL). The impact of his work extends beyond linguistics, into the study of stylistics, computation linguistics, visual narrative and multimodal communication. He is considered a founder of the field of social semiotics. Written by leading figures in the field, the volume provides readers with an authoritative overview of his early career, his most important theoretical findings and how his work has influenced linguistics as a discipline. From the publishers of his 'Collected Works' and 'The Essential Halliday', this is another must have book underlining Halliday's era-defining impact on the field of linguistics.
