Start Publishing Notes´ Summary, Analysis, and Review of Elizabeth Gilbert´s Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear. Includes a summary of the book, review, analysis & key takeaways, and detailed "About the Author" section. Preview: Elizabeth Gilbert´s Big Magic is her ode to creativity and inspiration. Gilbert, who´s garnered acclaim most famously for her book Eat Pray Love, seeks to impart to listeners that the act of artistic creation does not have be a tortured, complicated process: it´s better to just do, and worry about questions of merit or quality only once a work is actually finished. Gilbert opens the audiobook with an anecdote on Jack Gilbert, a poet with no relationship to the author, and only a fraction of her notoriety and success. Rejecting fame and fortune in favor of focusing and honing in on his craft, the author uses the poet´s example to lay out the central premise of Big Magic. Namely, as laid out by one of Jack Gilbert´s quoted passages - "We must risk delight. We must have the stubbornness to accept our gladness in the ruthless furnace of this world." Producing art for art´s sake in an indifferent world constitutes an act of bravery unto itself. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Gilboe.

Account of the 1848 Seneca Falls Convention and the beginning of the US woman´s rights movement. Feminists from 1848 to the present have rightly viewed the Seneca Falls convention as the birth of the women´s rights movement in the United States and beyond. In The Road to Seneca Falls, Judith Wellman offers the first well documented, full-length account of this historic meeting in its contemporary context. The convention succeeded by uniting powerful elements of the antislavery movement, radical Quakers, and the campaign for legal reform under a common cause. But also in the life of women´s rights pioneer Elizabeth Cady Stanton. It is this convergence, she argues, that foments one of the greatest rebellions of modern times. Rather than working heavy-handedly downward from their official Declaration of Sentiments, Wellman works upward from richly detailed documentary evidence to construct a complex tapestry of causes that lay behind the convention, bringing the struggle to life. Reform history with individual and collective biographical elements. The Road to Seneca Falls challenges all of us to reflect on what it means to be an American trying to implement the belief that all men and women are created equal, both then and now. A fascinating story in its own right, it is also a seminal piece of scholarship for anyone interested in history, politics, or gender. The book is published by University of Illinois Press. 1.
