  Gale - Free Resources - Poet's Corner - Biographies - Paula Gunn Allen   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Allen says that her focus on women is intended to affect the consciousness of Euro-American women rather than men because, until the last ten years or so, the women in her culture were never considered weak, and she wants others to know that women were not held down in all cultures.
Allen was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship for Writing in 1978, and she received a post-doctoral fellowship grant from the Ford Foundation-National Research Council in 1984.
Allen uses the theme of shadows — the not dark and not light — to bridge her experience of mixed heritage as she attempts to respond to the world in its variety.

  Harry Allen
Harry Allen (1911-1992) was one of Great Britain's last executioners, officiating between 1941 and 1964 when he was the chief executioner at 29 executions and assisted at 40 others.
Following the resignation of Albert Pierrepoint in 1956, Allen and Steve Wade[?] jointly became Chief Executioners, but the Homicide Act of 1957 reduced the number of condemned criminals by some 75%, from an average of 15 a year in the early 1950s to 4 a year in the late 1950s.
Allen's most controversial case was that of James Hanratty[?], hanged on 4 April 1962 at Bedford Prison for the "A6" murder case, although efforts to clear Hanratty's name continue to this day.

 The unauthorized Anthony Powell by Brooke Allen
Unauthorized biographies, on the other hand, are often either scurrilous (authorization being withheld on that very account), or, if sympathetic, badly weakened by the author’s lack of access to sources.
As a young novelist, Anthony Powell had a stroke of bad luck: he happened to be just two years younger than Evelyn Waugh, so that his own Afternoon Men came into a world already conditioned by Decline and Fall and Vile Bodies.
It is evident even on our first glimpse of him, as a precocious Oxford poet in A Question of Upbringing, that Members is embarked on building a reputation rather than a body of work: he emphasizes his boyishness with a floppy fringe and arranges himself in picturesque attitudes.
