We have other books submitted that are not cleared for public reading just yet. But we find within our list of books... There is a most interesting book listed. It's, The Village Carpenter: The Classic Memoir of the Life of a Victorian Craftsman by Walter Rose. There also listed is a review called, "One of my very favorite books, August 2, 2012 By Kari A. Hultman, Lemoyne, PA United States. This review is from: The Village Carpenter: The Classic Memoir of the Life of a Victorian Craftsman. The Village Carpenter is a book that I wished would never end. The author writes about carpentry and working in his grandfather's shop in Victorian England, at a time when the carpenter was vital to the life of the village and whose duties encompassed a much broader range of skills and projects than what we think of as carpentry today. The village carpenter in the late 19th c. was responsible for building everything from windows & doors to coffins to fences & gates to furniture to buckets & washboards and more. He was a thread that tied the community together, often having to work on sight, gaining an intimate understanding of the villagers in whose homes he would work for weeks on end. Walter Rose eloquently recounts stories about the men who worked in the shop, their tools, their projects, and their interaction with the villagers. Here is an excerpt from his book: {As publisher of this book... Here are 2 examples we want you to Read... Re-Read... And Read it again} '"It is in the workshop and at the bench that an insight into the soul of wood craftsmanship can be truly gained. There are tools, there is the wood--rude planks, ungarnished, their surface scored with the saw. Between them, and without which each is useless, must come the soul and spirit of the designer and craftsman; the deft hands prompted by an alert mind; the knowledge attained only through years of study and service; the creative instinct and ability that will, by the correct use of the tools, transform the mere plank into a thing of usefulness and beauty--possibly a joy for ever."' {See how the words were crafted together... Just like a carpenter building a window or a washboard. Walter Rose started out just like YOU. The review continues...} The entire book is filled with memorable passages and woodworking wisdom that has since been forgotten but is still relevant. He reflects on the personality of wood and the connection between the carpenter and his tools--a connection so absolute, that the same tool in another woodworker's hands would not respond the same. It's a must-read for anyone who is passionate about woodworking or who would like to gain insight into the soul of a woodworker." We are honored to have '"The Village Carpenter: The Classic Memoir of the Life of a Victorian Craftsman by Walter Rose" listed with our over 119 books on Amazon. There is another author we want point out. John Steinbeck writes, "Alicia, I wish I could tell you about these pilots. They make me sick with envy. They ride their vehicles the way a man controls a fine, well-trained quarter horse. They weave along streambeds, rise like swallows to clear trees, they turn and twist and dip like swifts in the evening." {See too... How John Steinbeck writes the words and crafts them together... Just like a musician; as he puts it, playing their controls like music. John Steinbeck started out just like YOU.} I also started out just like you... Just like Walter Rose... Just like John Steinbeck... YOU can do it!

A Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Man

RRP $17.99

A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man is the first novel of Irish writer James Joyce. A Kunstlerroman in a modernist style, it traces the intellectual and religio-philosophical awakening of young Stephen Dedalus, a fictional alter ego of Joyce and an allusion to Daedalus, the consummate craftsman of Greek mythology. Stephen questions and rebels against the Catholic and Irish conventions under which he has grown, and culminates with his self-exile from Ireland in Europe. The work uses techniques that Joyce developed more fully in Ulysses (1922) and Finnegans Wake (1939). A Portrait began life in 1903 as Stephen Hero-a projected 63-chapter autobiograhical novel in a realistic style. After 25 chapters, Joyce abandoned Stephen Hero in 1907 and set to reworking its themes and protagonist into a condensed five-chapter novel, dispensing with strict realism and making extensive use of free indirect speech that allowed the reader to peer into Stephen's developing consciousness. American modernist poet Ezra Pound had the novel serialized in the English literary magazine The Egoist in 1914 and 1915, and published as a book in 1916 by B. W. Huebsch of New York. The publication of A Portrait and the short story collection Dubliners (1914) earned Joyce a place at the forefront of literary modernism."
