The Beheaded Poetess is a book about the life of the T'ang Dynasty Nun and Poetess, Yu Xuanji. Two books in one: history and poetry. The work of Genevieve Wimsatt in her 1937 book: Selling Wilted Peonies is revised into Concrete Poetry throughout the book, with acknowledgements below each section and poem. Intermingled with the original translations of Yu Xuanji, with a modern day Poet Laureate Editing it, and including her own versions, homages to, and inspired by poems. She has combined her love of history with poetry to come up with a First Edition, winning combination. This book began as only an Homage to book, and somehow evolved into an accurate historical write, with many interesting facts worked in throughout the book. Included are a few illustrations. Truly a work of love by Jean Elizabeth Ward.

JOHN BROWN (1800-1859) John Brown was an American abolitionist, born in Connecticut and raised in Ohio. He felt passionately and violently that he must personally fight to end slavery. In 1856, in retaliation for the sack of Lawrence, he led the murder of five proslavery men on the banks of the Pottawatomie River. He stated that he was an instrument in the hand of God. Brown did not end there. On Oct. 16, 1859, Brown and 21 followers captured the U.S. arsenal at Harpers Ferry. Brown planned the takeover as the first step in his liberation of the slaves, but it was taken the next morning by Robert E. Lee. Brown was hanged on Dec. 2, 1859. He became a martyr for many because of the dignity and sincerity that he displayed during his popular trial. Benet wrote "John Brown's Body," an epic about the Civil War. He framed his poem around the life and death of John Brown.
