520    "In this extraordinary creative writing textbook, novelist
       and poet Linda Lappin presents a unique series of 
       exercises to help writers of all genres - poetry, fiction,
       creative nonfiction, memoir, and literary travel writing -
       discover inspiration in the soul of places they love. By 
       entering into contact with the soul of a place, writers 
       may access an inexhaustible source of creative power. The 
       exercises in this book are drawn from varied fields: 
       architecture, portraiture, cuisine, wine tasting, 
       literature, literary criticism, geography, Jungian 
       psychology, fairy tales, mythology, botany, anthropology, 
       theater, comparative religion, occult philosophy, 
       metaphysics. Originally developed for seminars Lappin 
       teaches for adults, these exercises have also been adapted
       to younger writers in undergraduate writing programs. In 
       simple language, she has adopted concepts from the 
       Romantic poets, French Symbolists, and English modernists 
       to help all writers enrich their understanding of place. 
       This ideal textbook for creative nonfiction courses, and 
       general writing courses, has specific exercises for poets 
       and fiction writers. It is also a sumptuous resource book 
       for writing centers. For writers or writing students about
       to set out on a trip abroad, The Soul of Place is an 
       inspiring traveling companion. "--|cProvided by publisher.
