What is your favorite poem? That is the question students from two fifth-grade classes at a New York grade school asked famous people to whom they had written. Their idea, the students explained, was to put together a book that would benefit the Women's Commission for Refugee Women and Children. The students were also studying poems in class and wanted to know if anybody still, in fact, read and gained insight from poetry. Touched by this appeal to their hearts, minds, and memories, fifty celebrities responded to their inquiries, including Geraldine Ferraro, Allen Ginsberg, Rudi Giuliani, Peter Jennings, Angela Lansbury, Yo-Yo Ma, Isabella Rossellini, Diane Sawyer, Ally Sheedy, Kurt Vonnegut, and Tom Wolfe. The poems they offer range from John Donne to Langston Hughes, but their letters all express hope that the students--and readers of this wonderful gift book--will read and take inspiration from the poetry of past and present."Of all the words that have stuck to the ribs of my soul, poetry has been the most filling," writes Anna Quindlen in her introduction, and this beautiful, inspiring collection of poetry is the perfect expression of how poets can influence and shape our lives.

Walking with My Iguana Hodder Children's Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

A highly entertaining listen as well as an essential classroom and library resource, this audio collection features approximately 40 poems performed by some of the UK's top children's poets. The focus is on poems that come to life in performance and meet the needs of the classroom teacher particularly at KS2 in terms of delivering the Literacy Hour requirements for poetry. Paul Cookson, Michael Rosen, Andrew Fusek Peters, Pie Corbett, Wes Magee, and John Rice are just some of the outstanding poets that are included, and strongly represented are poets and poems from ethnic minorities whose work is more readily appreciated in performance than on the printed page eg John Agard, Valerie Bloom, Debjani Chatterjee and Adisa. Brian Moses, the doyen of performance poets for children especially in schools, has compiled this collection to not only demonstrate the richness and excitement of poetry (many of the poems are accompanied by atmospheric music and sound effects) but to meet a wide variety of curriculum needs. An accompanying book provides all the poems in written form and notes for teachers are provided on www.hodderwayland.co.uk.

Letters from a Living Dead Man BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Do not fear death; but stay on earth as long as you can. Not withstanding the companionship I have here, I sometimes regret my failure in holding on to the world. But regrets have less weight on this side-like our bodies. Everything is well with me. I will tell you things that have never been told. Letter 5: Letters From a Living Dead Man Elsa Barker, American author and poet, was born in 1869 in Leicester Vermont, USA. Throughout her life Barker's poems and short stories were published in various books and magazines. Her debut novel, The Son of Mary Bethel, was published in 1909 and this was followed in 1910 by her first collection of poetry; The Frozen Grail and Other Poems. Barker was a spiritual writer and in 1912 while in Paris, one evening she began automatic writing; the phenomenon where someone other than her own sub conscious was writing using her hand. Much inspired writing over the years claims to have originated from discarnate beings and Barker was no exception. The entity responsible for the writing claimed to be Judge David Patterson Hatch, a lawyer from Los Angeles. The judge explained that he had recently passed over and that he wanted to document his experiences on the other side in the form of letters that he would write through Elsa's hand. Within a few days Barker received verification from a friend that the Judge had indeed died recently in Los Angeles. Over the next three years over 100 letters were 'dictated' and published as a trilogy debuting with Letters from a Living Dean Man, followed by War Letters from the Living Dead Man and Last Letters from the Living Dead Man. Coming shortly after W.T. Stead's bestselling channeled work Letters from Julia, the letters are now considered an essential guide to the afterlife. All are fascinating, informative and inspirational and are required reading for anyone interested in life and death, the afterlife, and why we are here.

Stitching the Dark BLOODAXE BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Carole Satyamurti's poetry explores love, attachment and the fragility of personal survival, charting the tension between connected and separate lives. With an unflinching eye, she takes on complex and often painful subject-matter - cancer for instance or raising a disabled child. Many of her poems hinge on a turning-point or a place where one life touches another, bearing witness to the way we imagine - or fail to imagine - the otherness of others. Stitching the Dark draws on four previous books and includes a whole new collection, her strongest and most formally adventurous. In these new poems, there is a deeper engagement with the universal predicament of how to live in the face of mortality - of what it means to exist, and to cease existing. The title suggests that the act of writing - the search for the right words - is an attempt to repair, illuminate, and give form to what is unknown, fearful, perplexing. But the collection is by no means solemn. There is also wit and celebration, dark humour and a fine sense of the absurd, as well as poems challenging our responses to events that do not affect us directly. 'Graceful yet tough writing, authentic and finely tuned' - elizabeth Bartlett 'Her unobtrusive approach is deceptive - these poems have unexpected stings in their tails' - penelope shuttle. 'Tensions we can all recognise...both gripping to read and positive in spirit...Her particular gift is for catching the poignant detail of inescapable human dilemmas and tensions' - alan brownjohn

In this charming and delightful collection of poetry and prose, we are taken through the imaginative journey of a child in rural Wisconsin, a young nurse's experiences in Alaska, and contented married life in northern California. Along the way, we experience the smooth feel of wooden buttons, the smell of prairie grass, the Alaskan northern lights, the frothy waves of the Pacific Coast, and the thick fur of a shaggy dog, all seen through the kind, observant eyes of this gentle poet. This is a book to be savored and treasured like an old friendship. ~~~~ Michelle Demers, Author of Epicenter ~~~~ These are generous poems, rich with unusual associations drawn from daily life and vividly observed memories. More than any poet I have read, Judy Liese is able to reconstruct the ways of being and seeing in childhood. We read of a child who studies a rendered cow, looking deep into the interior for that place where her life once resided...and later learn that a young woman's yes realigns the cosmos. There is confidence, complexity, humor and a deep, almost uncanny connection with all of nature, but especially with animals in Judy Liese's frank, well-grounded way of being in a world where something stirs, ancient, patient, older than earth. She is not afraid to remember where she (or we) came from or wonder where she (or we) might be going. ~~~~ Mary Kay Rummel, Poet Laureate of Ventura County, California Author of What's Left Is The Singing ~~~~ ~~~~ Judy Liese's poetry brims with tenderness and compassion. In this autobiographical collection, she illuminates with clarity and precision the spaces that punctuate the various stages of her life. Her vision sometimes seems to come from outside herself, as in her poem, "My Mother's Wooden Buttons," where she writes, "I see my little yellow dress standing by itself as if made of cardboard." Love, grief, humor, and sensuous images abound. Family, friends, horses, and even earthworms are among her muses. Of her beloved dog Fargo she writes, "He teaches us the benefits of an open heart." And in poem after poem, her writing does the same. ~~~~ Paul Fisher, Author of Rumors of Shore ~~~~ Judy Liese grew up in Wisconsin and began writing poems as soon as she learned to print in block letters in her Big Chief writing pad. As a child, she wrote poems to entertain her friends and family. After graduating from Appleton Senior High School, she studied to be an R.N. at Columbia Hospital School of Nursing in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. After earning her R.N. degree, she accepted a job as a psychiatric nurse in Anchorage, Alaska, where she survived the 1964 earthquake and got married. For many years she worked as a nurse and wrote poetry, taking writing classes when she could. In her fifties, she earned a B.A. in Literature and a Master's Degree in English and Creative Writing from Maharishi International University in Fairfield, Iowa. Retired now, Judy and Gary, her husband of fifty years, live in Northern California to be close to their son. She has poems published in Lyrical Iowa, as well as in several anthologies. This is her first full-length book of poems.

Drifting Between Empty Tramlines AESOP Publications

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Drifting Between Empty Tramlines focuses on the lives of a group of twenty-something women in the fictional town of Bridchester near Hull in the East Riding of Yorkshire in the 1970s. It was written in 1972 by Susan Noble, who died in 1974 at the age of 31. During the late 1960s and early 1970s, Susan worked in London, first at the Royal National Institute for the Blind and later at the National Central Library. Like the Bridchester Records Office in the novel, the NCL - based in Store Street, not far from the British Museum Library - was not open to the public. The atmosphere of the fictional records office, with all its gossip and backbiting, was almost certainly based on that of Susan's daily working life; the office forms the backdrop to the social, cultural, intellectual and emotional concerns of the central characters who grapple with a range of issues from mental illness to marriage and motherhood, their relationships, affairs and break-ups, their preoccupations over work and creativity, conflicts between feminism and traditional family roles, and between academia and 'lived experience'. And above all, throughout the novel, the question of what they should be doing with their lives. While it isn't hard to see traces of Jane Austen in its moral and social satire, Drifting Between Empty Tramlines also has elements of Bildungsroman and novels of ideas. The main protagonists - Anna, Margot, Paula, Alison, Dana and June - embody some of the defining concerns and issues for women during the tumultuous period of transition between the 1950s and 1970s, but in a much more autobiographical sense, each of these characters strikingly reflects different aspects of Susan's own personality. There are also intense moments of the kinds of spiritual perception and longing that may be found in her poems. Ultimately, though, the lives of these characters are all, in different ways, subverted by a sense of motivational uncertainty, which the novel's title so vividly expresses. Susan's output of fiction and poetry in the final ten years of her life was prolific and to mark the fortieth anniversary of her death, Drifting Between Empty Tramlines is being published in hardback, paperback and Kindle for the first time, along with four volumes of her poetry, The Dream of Stairs: A Poem Cycle; Inside the Stretch of My Heart; Before and After the Darkness; and Collected Poems, as well as a selection of her short stories and novellas, A Flock of Blackbirds. Profits from the sales of all six volumes are being donated to three charities: Mind, the Samaritans and Sane. Facsimiles of the original typescripts and manuscripts are available online at: www.aesopbooks.com/susannoble About the author Brought up in South London, Susan was the second of three children. Her childhood was enriched by being part of our large and closely-knit Jewish family. Unfortunately stricken by polio (then known as infantile paralysis) in her early years, Susan went through life with a degree of physical handicap which she was to overcome with courage and determination. Educated at Croydon High School, Susan studied English at Somerville College, Oxford. After graduating, Susan worked in London, first at the Royal National Institute for the Blind, dictating books for transcription into Braille, and later at the National Central Library in London, where she qualified as a Chartered Librarian. Susan's exceptional sensitivity was reflected not only in the intense outpouring of poems to be found in The Dream of Stairs, Inside the Stretch of My Heart, and Before and After the Darkness, but also in the novel Drifting Between Empty Tramlines and the short story collection A Flock of Blackbirds. In both her poetry and her fiction, she chronicles her personal response to the world around her, while vividly portraying the inner landscape o

Susan's output of fiction and poetry in the final ten years of her life was prolific and to mark the fortieth anniversary of her death, the stories in this volume are being published in hardback, paperback and Kindle for the first time, along with two volumes of her poetry, The Dream of Stairs and Inside the Stretch of My Heart, and her novel, Between Empty Tramlines. Susan's exceptional sensitivity was reflected not only in the prolific outpouring of poems that make up The Dream of Stairs and Inside the Stretch of My Heart, but in the short stories that make up this collection. In these intense, haunting stories, she chronicles her personal response to the world around her, while vividly portraying the inner landscape of her mental and emotional struggle. Many of the stories are triggered by the quotidian experience of living and working in central London in the late 1960s and early 1970s, yet beneath the fragile surface of acute observations of city life, intensely spiritual insights are played out, sometimes delicately, sometimes shockingly. but always movingly.

Sarah Arvio - Sono Bloodaxe Books Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Sarah Arvio is a highly original American poet. This book includes the whole of her second collection "Sono" and selections from her first book "Visits from the Seventh", with an audio CD of her reading all of "Sono". Composed during a long stay in Rome, the cantos of "Sono" look outward in order to look inward, transforming sights and stories into expressionistic explorations of the state of the heart. Playful, probing, philosophical, colorful, often funny, they describe a struggle to come to terms with loss and grief and to find a basis for renewal. Riffing expertly, Sarah Arvio brings wit and exquisite formal discipline to her gorgeous meditations on the life lived. These are high-burning songs of the self - colloquial, sexy, unflinching and unforgettable. In "Visits from the Seventh", her wry, uncanny poems take the form of conversations between a woman and a throng of invisible presences, or 'visitors', who counsel, challenge, cajole and comfort her. Together they murmur about destiny, the moon, a walk on Park Avenue, sex, ambition, dreams.

Janet Frame Northcote House Publishers

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

An accessible close re-reading of Frame's novels and short stories from an autobiographical perspective. This study examines the whole of Janet Frame's output starting with the fiction (novels, short-stories and poems) before focusing on the two autobiographical novels, Owls do Cry and Faces in the Water, to end with the autobiographical trilogy, a sort of restorative prism inviting us to (re) read all her preceding works. It is the autobiography and its film version, An Angel at My Table (1990, directed by Jane Campion), that won her international fame. Frame's life is extraordinary, not only because she was spared a lobotomy by winning a prize for her collection of short stories, but also because writing from the 'rim of the farthest circle, ' she provides food for thought for anyone interested in postcolonial and gender studies.
