A collection of verses compiled by Oryx, the Taken King, and including verses from the Worm Gods and Oryx's sisters, as well as from other civilizations. 1. The Books of Sorrow detail the history and philosophy of the Hive and their relationship with the Worm Gods and the Deep.   On "First Love and Other Sorrows" by Harold Brodkey ***** I first read this collection some twenty years ago.

Other Sorrows, Other Joys is the fictional biography of Catherine Boucher, an intelligent but untutored young woman of the late 18th Century overwhelmed by her environment and the genius of her husband, the English poet, artist, and prophet William Blake. In London, she fights for her identity, intimidated by his genius and the intellectual. In First Love and Other Sorrows, the young Brodkey chronicles the world of the educated and affluent middle class of the s, at leisure and in love. He establishes the themes that would appear throughout his career--the painful uncertainties of childhood, the halting intimacies of social life--with rare terness, humor, and haunting insight.
