When not researching for her next book, Kat can be found running her three sons to hockey and lacrosse. Her careers moves at lightning speed from a role as a secretary at a brokerage firm to CEO of HP. His books primarily focus on art-related subjects, including art forgeries, Grant Wood, Andrew Wyeth, Tutankhamen, and the 12th-century walrus ivory crucifix known as the Bury St. She also was one of the three people who spun off Lucent from AT&T, creating the logo, company identity and mission statement. Fiorini was the CEO of HP, and this is her autobiography, focused on her climb through the business world (from AT&T to Lucent to HP). While She Lived In A Saloon, Her Mother Never Thought A Wit About Her As She Let Drunken Cowboys Grope Her. Aesthetically it is a work of great and simply beauty, therefore providing evidence that language in a poetic simplicity can provide some of the greatest and most beautiful ideas and images.

It actually made me want to do my job better.However, the second half of this book felt like "Carly's Defense".

After all, in the Bible, the splendour of light was released with 'Let there be light.'The poem appears simple on the outside, with a nice flowing rhythm, reinforced by the repetitious aaaabcccb structure and the use of the word Shalott to close almost each stanza. I'm glad I finally picked this up, for Hoving tells it all in stylish and engaging language. There are hints of various critiques and subversions of traditional love narratives buried in Tennyson's work and as such becomes another fantasy tale that reflects on reality.The narrative, essentially describing how one Lady of Shalott, trapped in a tower, is forced to view the world of Camelot through a mirror, lest she succumb to a curse. Working on a design team that was almost all male, it was exhilerating to have a female CEO. I love books about people running from their pasts because, as we all know, you can run but your past will always catch you. Eventually she does turn from the mirror to look down at the glittering, gem covered Lancelot, the poem's ultimate symbol of masculinity (and virility). I thought I'd read it when it first was published but was pleasantly surprised to find out I hadn't. As a result, she leaves her tower in a boat and floats down to Camelot, only to arrive dead and drained of blood. Where only Lancelot is considerate enough to look upon her and comment that:Many critics have suggested that The Lady of the poem is the perfect symbol for how Victorian women were expected to behave, therefore making of this poem a feminist critique.
This is a short book, but within a very short time of beginning it, I knew this was my kind of book! The sense pervades the poem that when the Lady looks down at her possible lover, the beautified Lancelot, it is because she is a woman and therefore supposedly given into the irrational. One of the best leadership and business books I have read and will likely re-read or at the very least borrow wisdom from. This is one amazing story, written by Hoving who worked for the Met Museum, which originally sponsored Tutankhamen's excavation.
The very idea that this woman has to be kept hidden in a tower, concealed away from society (and perhaps from exploring her sexuality) is in itself a unique critique.
Therefore, it is possible that Tennyson intended the poem to criticise the idea that women were meant to be seen and not heard; objects of beauty but not of necessarily logical capacity. The fact that Tennyson was Poet Laureate for the Queen leads one to consider the strong indications that this poem was intended to be political in nature.Another angle to observe this poem from is the perspective of the poem as a subversion of the classic fairytale knight quest. Considering the way in which Tennyson uses Arthurian myth and legend in the poem this again seems like another way in which Tennyson perhaps criticises romantic love in relation to male and female dynamics.
There is the sense that Tennyson condemns the romantic idea of the gallant chivalrous knight rescuing the damsel in distress, for in his narrative the knights do not come to rescue the damsel and instead the damsel must leave her tower for the knight, resulting in her death. This could be seen as an indication that Tennyson believes that there are no happy ever afters and that chivalry is a naive idea of the past (particular when one connects the poem to the reality of the industrialised age Tennyson lived in).
Or, one could read it as a condemnation of women being forced to become independent and rely upon their own strength, that essentially without a knight to rescue them a woman will die from a curse.

I thoroughly enjoyed it, especially the contributions she made in the field in which I thrived for my entire early career – telecommunications.
Mirrors and shadows in particular feature heavily in the poem, from the mirror the Lady is forced to observe the world through. A mirror which could be seen as a symbol for the social constraints obscuring that which can be truly seen. Then again, how the Lady weaves what she sees in the mirror into a web of tapestry could be viewed as a criticism of how the artist performs their work. A particularly poignant idea when connected to the nature of Tennyson being Poet Laureate.Whatever way you choose to read this poem it is a fascinating work (as is most of Tennyson's work). And in some senses it is a danger to read too much into the poem for fear of ignoring the sheer aesthetic beauty of it.
Indeed Tennyson is a poet who understands how to capture musicality with words and as such his work should be read by anyone interested in literature. Lynne King May 12, 2014This suits my current frame of mind beautifully.An absolutely splendid work. The world is separated from her by the height of the tower and the river moat that surrounds it, it constantly reminds her that sheThis poem is one of the first I ever read, and is a true pleasure to read aloud. The world is separated from her by the height of the tower and the river moat that surrounds it, it constantly reminds her that she is completely and utterly alone in this world.
This is emphasised by the fact that the reader isn’t privy to her thoughts and emotions; she is a distant figure within the poem, which makes her remoteness felt by the reader in the poem’s lovely lyrical tones.
It is no wonder then, that when the glorious Sir Lancelot starts prancing about in a majestic manner, that she is taken by him.
The Lady has been completely seduced by the teasing reflections in her mirror, and she can no longer resist the temptation to go to him.
She abandons her mirror and seclusion.But, she was cursed, and ultimately caused her own death.
To my mind, this is a reflection of the women of the Victorian age; they were restricted and confined like the Lady. An attempt to break those restrictions would lead in destruction because society, for women, was oppressive and controlling.
Positive in that it’s a metaphor for women’s place in society (intent of showing injustice), and negative in that it shows what happens to women who disobey so to be shown as a warning.
