"Growing Wings to Overcome Gravity, inspired by a passage from Plato's Phaedrus, serves as a coda to my critical trilogy, published over a span of nearly twenty years: The Reverent Discipline (1974), The courage of Judgement (1982), and The Critic as Conservator (1992). My title here provides the encompassing poetic image-and the inspiration behind my critical intent- of ultimately overcoming the crises of modernism in which we agonize, and of attaining the promise of spiritual and moral order.

Going to Ground : Simple Life on a Georgia Pond
By author: Amy Blackmarr
Product Code: P267
ISBN: 9780865549050
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $25.00
Unfulfilled by city life, Amy Blackmarr sold her thriving Kansas business and returned to the pine woods of South Georgia to follow a dream. For five years, she lived in her grandfather’s "old scarecrow of a fishing cabin" beside the pond. Now with warmth, humor, and a strong, clear voice, she brings her rustic world alive in stories about her dogs, life without hot water, visits from an alligator, and the life and death of her grandmother. Blackmarr also writes candidly of the demons she must conquer in her own nature to become the person she longs to be while continually proving there is wonder to be found in every moment. In the tradition of Thoreau’s Walden and Annie Dillard’s Pilgrim at Tinker Creek, Going to Ground is a tribute to the transcendent beauty of nature and the joys, fears, lessons, and serenity of the solitary life. Originally published in 1997, Mercer University Press proudly introduces this new edition.

House of Steps : Finding the Path Home
By author: Amy Blackmarr
Product Code: P275
ISBN: 9780865549128
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: Not currently available. (Backorder policy)
Price: $25.00
When the award of a graduate fellowship brings Amy Blackmarr to Kansas from her grandfather’s old pond-side fishing shack in rural South Georgia—"where the scents of pine straw on damp mornings and peanuts drying in October fields were deep and warm and familiar"—she rents a hippie house in the country that quickly becomes the setting for a tangled string of quirky events. With characteristic humor, irony, and an unfailing sense of wonder, Blackmarr gets lost in the woods, battles wasps but falls in love with a roach, frets over the "corruption" of her mother, calls the sheriff on her neighbors, laments her perfectionism, collects bugs in a bowl, and takes in yet another stray dog. The chaotic, often contemplative, always revealing journey into her own nature is reflected in the vibrant natural settings Blackmarr inhabits; yet her discoveries provide readers warm and lyrical proof that they don’t have to escape into the woods to understand themselves, or their world, more deeply. Originally published in 1999, this edition of House of Steps includes a new unpublished essay.
