Small Mechanics MCCLELLAND & STEWART

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A radiant collection of new poems from one of Canada's most renowned and well-read poets. The poems in Lorna Crozier's rich and wide-ranging new collection, a modern bestiary and a book of mourning, are both shadowed and illuminated by the passing of time, the small mechanics of the body as it ages, the fine-tuning of what a life becomes when parents and old friends are gone. Brilliantly poised between the mythic and the everyday, the anecdotal and the delicately lyrical, these poems contain the wit, irreverence, and startling imagery for which Crozier is justly celebrated. You'll find Bach and Dostoevsky, a poem that turns into a dog, a religion founded by cats, and wood rats that dance on shingles. These poems turn over the stones of words and find what lies beneath, reminding us why Lorna Crozier is one of Canada's most well-read and commanding voices.

Window for a Small Blue Child Carcanet Press Ltd

"Window for a Small Blue Child" is the story of the poet's experience of in vitro fertilisation, a sequence of poems underscored by the seasons and by the biological clock of a woman in her forties as she navigates the risks and choices, the drugs and rituals of fertility treatment. In a voice which moves between narrative and image, between lyrical experience and medical text she explores what it is to be engaged with a technique so much of which is enacted in a woman's body yet which takes its name from forty-eight hours of events in a lab. In the contemporary fairy tale of IVF science and nature interact, bodies become maps, but who is telling the story? In these poems, windows may open into gardens or bodies or dreams, and folk tales jostle with the images of science: its scans and procedures, the labs and Petri dishes which might or might not cradle a future child.

"Hoa Nguyen's poems probe dailiness to divorce us from our base assumptions about how language might present the world to us. Her poems comprise some of the most inviting lyrics I've found in a living poet."--Bookslut "Phrase by phrase Nguyen's work can be conversational, playful, funny, angry, acutely self-aware, and loaded with sensory information."--Anselm Berrigan, from the introduction Red Juice represents a decade of poems written roughly between 1998 and 2008, previously only available in small-run handmade chapbooks, journals, and out-of-print books. This collection of early poems by Vietnamese American poet Hoa Nguyen showcases her feminist ecopoetics and unique style, all lyrical in the post-modern tradition. [BUDDHA'S EARS ARE DROOPY TOUCH HIS SHOULDERS] Buddha's ears are droopy touch his shoulders as scarves fly out of windows and I shriek at the lotus of enlightenment Travel to Free Street past Waco to the hole in the Earth wearing water I'm aiming my mouth for apple pie Born in the Mekong Delta and raised in the Washington, DC, area, Hoa Nguyen studied Poetics at New College of California in San Francisco. With the poet Dale Smith, Nguyen founded Skanky Possum, a poetry journal and book imprint. She is the author of eight poetry books and chapbooks and lives in Toronto, Ontario, where she teaches poetics at Ryerson University and curates a reading series.

Life and Poems of Anne Hunter - 2834152146

Life and Poems of Anne Hunter Liverpool University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Anne Home Hunter (1741-1821) was one of the most successful song writers of the second half of the eighteenth century, most famously as the poet who wrote the lyrics of many of Haydn's songs. However her work, which included many more serious, lyrical and romantic poems has been largely forgotten. This book contains over 200 poems, some published in her life-time under her married name 'Mrs John Hunter', some attributed only to a 'Lady', and most importantly many transcribed from her manuscripts, housed in various archives and in a private collection, which are now collected for the first time. Hitherto Anne Hunter has been known almost entirely through her "Poems" published in 1802, in her introduction Isobel Armstrong argues that she saw this book as a definitive representation of her poetry. Besides her consummately skillful lyrics and songs it contains serious political odes and reflective poems. The unpublished material amplifies and extends the work of 1802. The introduction is followed by a long biographical essay by Caroline Grigson. The daughter of Robert Home, an impoverished Scottish Army surgeon, Anne Hunter spent her adult life in London where she married the famous anatomist John Hunter, with whom she lived in great style, latterly as a bluestocking hostess, until his death in 1793. The book includes many new details of her long life, her friendship with Angelica Kaufman (who painted her portrait - see cover) and the bluestocking, Elizabeth Carter. The account of Anne's life as a widow describes her relationships with her family, her niece the playwright Joanna Baillie, and her friends, especially those of the famous Minto family, as well as the Scottish impresario George Thomson. Of especial interest is the discovery of a previously unrecorded visit that Haydn made to her during his second London visit when she was living in Blackheath. Expertly researched which Grigson's book sets Anne Hunter's oeuvre in the political and social context of the time and will be required reading to scholars of literature and music alike.

Amenophra, and Other Poems (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Amenophra, and Other Poems I drank of Avon, too, - a dangerous draught, That roused within the feverish thirst of song. Walter Savage Landor. I Have suffered these few lyrical efforts to be collected and republished, partly at the instance of my friend, Mr. Hill, and partly because I deem it a fitting acknowledgment to the critics, for the uniform courtesy, - I may even say, clemency - received at their hands. Many of my earlier and lighter poems have been very properly omitted from this volume, and my altered conception of the poetic function as well as of the poetic principle, causes me to hope that they will meet with that Euthanasia which Oblivion generally accords to the immature effusions of youth's third lustrum. Whether the residue herein preserved merits a similar fate, is a question, as Sir Thomas Browne would say, 'not beyond all conjecture!'

Universally known for his groundbreaking prose - especially the monumental novel Ulysses - and its depictions of Dublin at the turn of the twentieth century, James Joyce started off as a writer of lyrical poetry, a genre which he never abandoned in hislifetime and which informs and enriches the rest of his literary production. This volume, which includes Joyce's first published book, Chamber Music, as well as his later collection Pomes Penyeach and several other uncollected poems, revealsa lesser-known facet of the great modernist's artistic career and a glimpse into his poetical sensibility.

By any measure, Gary Snyder is one of the greatest poets in America in the last century. From his first book of poems to his latest collection of essays, his work and his example, standing between Tu Fu and Thoreau, have been influential all over the world. "Riprap," his first book of poems, was published in Japan in 1959 by Origin Press, and it is the fiftieth anniversary of that groundbreaking book we celebrate with this edition. A small press reprint of that book included Snyder's translations of Han Shan's "Cold Mountain Poems," perhaps the finest translations of that remarkable poet ever made into English. Reintroducing one of the twentieth century's foremost collections of poetry, this edition will please those already familiar with this work and excite a new generation of readers with its profound simplicity and spare elegance.

Excerpt from The: Comfort of the Hills, and Other Poems In the year 1882 I printed the first of six small volumes of verse. The editions of each were limited to two or three hundred copies, with an average sale of about fifty copies. Having generously given away the rest, I am amused to find that these volumes are now sought for by the collector of first editions and are occasionally bringing absurd prices. This present collection is the only one I have not paid for outright and is a venture of my publishers which speaks well for their courage. The three poems at the beginning of this volume lay for many years in my portfolios. "The Comfort of the Hills" is now publicly printed for the first time.

Excerpt from Poems It is not without a deep feeling of apprehension that I venture now, at the last moment, to commit the following trifling effusions to the press. It is, I believe, customary for young authors to state in the preface not always, I should imagine, with the strictest truth that the ardent entreaties of their friends and relatives alone induced them to enter the arcana of publication; but sincerity forbids my shielding myself under this pretence, and so far from having been urged to this folly, there is but one person who is aware of my committing it. I must consequently seek elsewhere, some more valid excuse for intruding my verses upon the notice even of the small circle who will have either the inclination, or the opportunity of perusing them; but, previous to embarking on this difficult and hazardous enterprise, I may as well apologize for the loose unconnected manner in which they are put together, rather consisting of the "disjecta membra poetic" than finished poems.

This text comprises two collections of Ivor Gurney's poetry. "Best Poems" consists of fair copies of 64 poems. "The Book of Five Makings" is more of a working draft, with recastings of the same poems, revealing the process by which he brought his work to completion. This text contains 52 poems and eight revised versions. Of the 116 poems in these volumes, only 25 are previously collected. Gurney's career began with two small volumes of verse, "Severn and Somme" and "War's Ember's". Then in 1922 he entered an asylum from which only an occasional poem in a magazine emerged, but he did not stop writing. Gurney put volumes of his work together, as John Clare did a century earlier, without hope of publication. The various titles he had in mind, such as "Rewards of Wonder" state his poetic position and represent his own viewpoint.
