Barring a few like Athens, Rome, Instanbul, Jeusalem and Damascus, not many big cities of modern world can boast of a 2500 year old history behind them. This book is a saga of the 2500 year long journey of Patna, its rise , decline and how she rose once again from a small port hamlet Pattan during Buddha to a fortress city at the time of great Magadhan king Ajatshatru which was later passed on to Chandragupta Maurya who converted this city into a marvelous magic in wood and brick with elegant palaces gates and watchtowers. Then came Ashoka who created the magnificent sixty-four pillared Mauryan Hall and a palace. This book takes you on the journey of this city from Ajastshatru to the Guptas to Shershahand Mirquassim to the Dutch and The British crown who all contributed and created something to make this city become a great city of artisanship culture, knowledge and art. This book is also about the people of Patna, its hotels, restaurants, movie halls and so on. But the sad part is Patna lost most of its iconic sprawling bungalows that were adorned by front lawns or gardens to earthquakes or building booms and in the present time the pace of this loss has gained speed. This book is also a story of the pain of this city…what Patna has lost in this great journey. Sometimes I see Patna as an ageing grandmother, who one by one bids adeu to her children and grandchildren leaving her; standing alone in her front porch .

An essential part of the folklore of Canadian academia in the 1950s and 60s, George Johnston's poems were recited with glee by readers largely unaware of their publication abroad in the New Yorker, Partisan Review, Poetry (Chicago) and The Spectator. This book shows the making of those poems, and several hitherto unpublished ones, forged in the hard craft of Icelandic saga, American Imagism, and in the voices of family and community Johnston took as his material. William Blissett enjoys a unique presence in academic folklore today, having seeded it with his perceptions and sayings for over sixty years as an authority on Wagner and the shape of literary modernism, Renaissance epic and drama; the work of his friend, the modernist poet David Jones, and his friend, George Johnston, whose poems he frequently critiqued in draft. Sean Kane, once a student of both Johnston and Blissett, engagingly presents a friendship told in fifty years of letters between the two men, set in the affectionate, gossipy, aspiring world of English Studies in Canada when it was ruled by A.S.P. Woodhouse and Northrop Frye.
