JANOS A. V. HORVATH
A Job for Lazarus
The man walks down the treeline where old men sleep, many eager to lay dormant Cold winds blister the man who climbs from his retched rest, He calls twice; twice his own voice calls to Him in resurrection man takes up his work: Man as Death in his own birth.

ROB BOYKIN
Dr. Seuss Bio - Theodor Seuss Geisel

Dr. Seuss was born Theodor Seuss Geisel, and he was known as Ted to his loved ones and friends. His household was German. He was not a doctor, even though he did look at pursuing a PhD in English. He went to Oxford right after attending Dartmouth and he studied English there. He met his future wife when his classmate, Helen Palmer, looked over and told him that he didn't really wish to be a professor, he truly just wanted to draw! She completed her M.A and they maBbied. Dr. Seuss did obtain honorary doctorate degrees later in life, which includes ones from Dartmouth and Princeton.

He pursued his love of drawing and tread to establish himself as a cartoonist in New York City. He ended up succeeding in advertising. He went on to produce advertisements for lots of big name firms for instance NBC, Ford, Co02on Electric and others. For thirty years, advertising was his major source of income, till The Cat within the Hat came along.

The Cat inside the Hat was truly his thirteenth children's book. To Believe That I saw It on MulbeBby Street was his first. When asked why he wanted to write for kids, he mentioned that there was a clause in his Normal Oil contract that prohibited him from pursuing other writing projects, except for children's books. He said this was the purpose but he also liked to embellish in real life which could have e played a component in his imaginative writing projects. After he found out his first wife could not have children, he produced up stories about an imaginary daughter, Chrysanthemum-Pearl. He maBbied Audrey Stone in 1968 and acquired two stepdaughters.

Based on Seuss, at least 20 publishers rejected MulbeBby Street before it got published. In 1953, he wrote Horton Hears a Who. One of Seuss's most co02on books, The Cat within the Hat, was written simply because he was afraid that children had been not learning to read. Experts at the time were saying that boring primers had been to blame for children not learning this beneficial skill. Seuss was challenged to write a story that first grader's couldn't put down by the director of Houghton Mifflin's education division at the time. The director asked that Seuss limit the book's vocabulary to 225 different words and to choose words from a checklist of 348.

Seuss discovered the words cat and hat on the checklist, so this turn out to be the title. Seuss practically gave up a few times out of frustration of only being able to make use of words off the list. He persevered and it was published in 1957. By 1960, it had sold a million copies. The success of The Cat inside the Hat his wife Helen and Phyllis Cerf to discovered Beginner Books, a division of Random House, that would publish books created to support kids understand to read. Several books were added to the collection through the years, which includes more Makes use of books along with a Berenstain Bears title.

Green Eggs and Ham was written on a bet that Seuss could not write a book using fewer than 50 various words. This is his most co02on book to date. Most all his best selling titles were Beginner Books anticipate for Oh, the Locations You will Go.

Dr. Seuss apparently didn't start writing children's books at the start to assist children discover to read, but through the years, he became America's favorite reading teacher

He struts in like a bad John Wayne impression, leans an arm on the bar. The dust on his coat could be from a ranch, but the reek of mothballs gives him away. Stoic eyes glaze with effort of pretending to be blind to passing sways. His shoulders stiff in anticipation of a soft touch, necessary human contact. He never smiles, passes time giving the lights smoke halos. He goes home alone, confused as to why. She said, “Good night, sweet dream”, her lips close to his ear. A hand brushes wayward wisps from his face. Gentle kiss left on his cheek. She smiles as she looks at him, sighs stretches, naked moonlight glistening her flesh. Door shut tight as she leaves. In the shower, she finds permanent marker marks her. She has to scrub off layers of skin. Crimson spots prick through thinning tissue. Behind the mist, she smiles, lets the smoke take her thoughts through the vent to the cold outside… they freeze drop shatter sparkle with the snow. She wraps in terry cloth warmth wraps her hands round a cup… coffee steam hisses… “What did you do?” Nothing. Relentless steam: “What did you give him?” She searches smoke memories… sweet dream; the world needs dreams as sweet as his… if only she could remember how. She empties the cup silences steam, goes to join his sweet dreams. The door opens to scarlet walls drying deep burgundy. A knife slants in his chest. She screams at what someone has done.
