Love Dreaming and Other Poems Vagabond Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In "Love dreaming & other poems" Cobby Eckermann bears witness to a deep commitment to her traditional kin, culture and language as she tells the story of her search for her family on the traditional Yankunytjatjara and Kokatha lands in the north west of South Australia. At the same time, she lays bare the ongoing effects of governmental policy and paternalism on Australia's indigenous peoples. Engaging with events around Alice Springs, these poems give firsthand witness to the 2007 Northern Territory Emergency Response by the Federal Government, commonly known as The Intervention, and its ongoing effects on regional and remote Indigenous communities. These poems lay open the complexity of the internal conflict felt among Aboriginal people today, as they constantly need to adjust to contemporary Australia. Cobby Eckermann notes, 'My times in the desert are my happiest, and the soft blanket felt when my traditional language is spoken around me, is a feeling of pure love.' This is a collection by one of Indigenous Australian poetry's most vital new voices, sung with two eyes wide open to the present reality without fear or prejudice, with an overflowing love and care for the future. "These are the offerings of a writer who has journeyed with great determination through apparently irretrievable loss, through chaos, disintegration and desolation, who has harvested the gifts of insight and emotional and spiritual intelligence and compassion, and who now reveals these insights to the eyes and ears of others through lucid images and punchy language." Terry Whitebeach Ali Cobby Eckermann has enjoyed huge success with her first collection of poetry little bit long time (Australian Poetry Centre, 2010) and Kami (Vagabond Press, 2010). Her poetry reflects her journey to reconnect with her Yankunytjatjara / Kokatha family. Her first verse novel His Father's Eyes was published by Oxford University Press in 2011. Her second verse novel Ruby Moonlight won the inaugural kuril dhagun National Manuscript Editing Award and will be published by Magabala Books in 2012. She established an Aboriginal Writers Retreat at her home in Koolunga, and advocates strongly for grassroots Aboriginal voices to be heard through literature. She has lived most of her adult life in Australia's Northern Territory.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Michael Symmons Roberts' sixth and most ambitious collection to date - takes its name from the ancient trade in powders, chemicals, salts and dyes, paints and cures. These poems offer a similarly potent and sensory multiplicity, unified through the formal constraint of 150 poems of 15 lines. Like the medieval psalters echoed in its title, this collection contains both the sacred and profane. Here are hymns of praise and lamentation, songs of wonder and despair, journeying effortlessly through physical and metaphysical landscapes, from financial markets and urban sprawl to deserts and dark nights of the soul. From an encomium to a karaoke booth to a conjuration of an inverse Antarctica, this collection is a compelling, powerful search for meaning, truth and falsehood. But, as ever in Roberts' work - notably the Whitbread Award-winning Corpus - this search is rooted in the tangible world, leavened by wit, contradiction, tenderness and sensuality. This is Roberts' most expansive writing yet: mystical, philosophical, earthy and elegiac. "Drysalter" sings of the world's unceasing ability to surprise, and the shock and dislocation of catching your own life unawares.

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

Korean Spirit The Hermit Kingdom Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

THE KOREAN SPIRIT: POEMS is a collection of poems that captures the hopes and the fears of ethnic Koreans around the world. Korean anxiety heightened by the inclusion of North Korea as an axis of evil power impeding the Korean aspiration for a united Korea has created a search for harmony among Korean individuals and Korean groups. Many of the poems in this collection express the collectively, although often privately, shared sentiment of the Korean people regarding global politics and international relations. Also, there are many poems in the book of poetry that captures the Korean "han" (angst) relating to Korean history and past, such as the Japanese Occupation of Korea (1910-1945). Particularly of note is the way the words of The Lord's Prayer from the Gospel of Matthew is applied through poetry in the Korean historical consciousness and experience.

Chronicles of Humans with Nature Goose River Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Chronicles of Humans with Nature is a follow-up to Still Brooding on a Strong Branch; a pendulum that swings between the memories and experiences of family members and our engagement with the natural world. In this collection there are eighty na-ture and humanistic poems that honor the memory, pay tribute to, and sanctify the lives of loved ones. One of the most central and universal topics for poetry is some aspect of personal sorrow, grief, mourning or another related loss, springing from the central core of the human condition. The poems extend in rivers beyond the loss in terms of their emotional and imaginative range that one hopes will transcend and reverberate in many places. I have tried to create multi-dimensional poems-- broad and deep, models of us humans with nature, as rich as we are in the full world. Poetry writing has taught me to search for all the moments in nature and experiences where life is on the edge, where change is only a heartbeat away. It is the inevitability of change and loss that is the most somber reality of our world.

Building into Air Bloodaxe Books Ltd

The unifying themes of the collection are the human search for home, and the sense of striving which Sail finds in 'the bright attempt to build/the city's simulacrum into high air'. Its opening sequence is primarily a response to three unnamed English cities, but also takes in broader historical and geographical contexts. Also included are love poems and poems about family, friends, and landscapes. Building into Air adds to the achievement of his Out of Land: New & Selected Poems (1992).

Kim Kardashian's Marriage Faber & Faber Poetry

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Sam Riviere's debut, 81 Austerities, began as blog responding to the spending cuts, and went on to win the Forward Prize for Best First Collection. A sequel of sorts, the 72 poems in Kim Kardashian's Marriage mark out equally sharpened lines of public and private engagement. Kim Kardashian's 2011 marriage lasted for 72 days, and was seen by some as illustrative of celebrity life as spectacle. Riviere has used it as a point of ignition, deploying terms from Kardashian's make-up regime to explore surfaces and self-consciousness, presentation and obfuscation. As with 81 Austerities, the process of enquiry involves the composition method itself, this time in poems that have been produced by harvesting and manipulating the results of search engines to create a poetry of part-collage, part-improvisation. The effect is as refractive as it is reflective, and disturbs the slant on biography until we are left with a pixellation of the first person.

Instruments of Art Carcanet Press Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The Instruments of Art uses poetry to explore the lives and works of Edvard Munch, Vincent Van Gogh and others, the personal sacrifice involved, the singular vision and inspiration that set them in motion. God's creation, some argue, is a work of art, and Christ's life and death an expression of it. Deane follows this thread in a series of sonnets based on the Stations of the Cross. Another series of poems takes John the Evangelist, 'the one whom Christ loved', as the voice of a poet expressing the hard love and personal commitment demanded by Christ; Deane conducts this exploration experimentally, contrasting and complimenting it with his personal experience of faith through suffering and love. The Old Testament story of Jacob's search for meaning is retold through the poet's own memories of family and becomes an emblem of the universal search for truth and peace. This is a collection written by the light of faith yet shadowed by doubt; it develops an instinctive approach to art that offers an understanding in terms of the highest reaches of suffering humanity.

Redgrove's Wife BLOODAXE BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Penelope Shuttle's latest collection, "Redgrove's Wife", is a book of lament and celebration. Its focus is the life and death of her husband, the poet Peter Redgrove, coupled with the loss of her father. Here, grief, depression and ageing are confronted with painful directness, but transformed into life-affirming and redemptive poetry. Other poems written over the same five-year period are inspired by a wide variety of subjects, from Cornish history and landscape to time, weather, spiders and postal regulations. Some draw on myth and dream to reinvent reality, while others take surprising liberties with language itself. Redgrove's Wife offers an extraordinary range of different kinds of poetry: both sensuous and ceremonial, elegiac and erotic, visionary and playful. Penelope Shuttle writes: 'Despite Peter's worsening health, many of the poems take as their task the search for a renewal of life during difficult circumstances. How to go on loving the world, which is what a poet is for, when it deals you severe blows, forcing you to give up much of what gives life its energy and delight. My years as a carer for Peter and the sadness of witnessing his decline into frailty due to a combination of Parkinson's, arthritis and diabetes, were a time when I fought off depression and anger, not always successfully, but turned to poetry as channel for and transformer of such emotions. After Peter died, it was poetry that provided me with "the proper consolations of human loneliness".'

John Fuller - Ghosts CHATTO & WINDUS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Like the possible phantoms that stalk the dark passageways of its title poem, John Fuller's beautifully lucid collection explores the grey area between life and death. Full of self-deprecating wit and subtle insight, the poems contemplate the inevitability that, when one reaches a certain age, the moment of one's own passing will start to haunt one. In 'Flea Market' there is the pathos of once-loved objects laid out, meaningless, 'on the cobbles for scavengers'. In 'Positions in the Bed', the restless search for a comfortable way to sleep leads to thoughts of the morning when 'we find/ Ourselves absconded from the body's/ Weary roll-call'. And yet, out of this sense of mortality, grows a determination to take delight in the moment, to appreciate fully 'the business of living'. These poems are not only intimate, domestic and often funny, they are uncompromising in the way they confront the huge and unanswerable questions of life. The movement of thought is rendered beautifully concrete in the intricate music of their langauge, and melancholy co-exists with a lightness of touch that builds a moving and humane barricade against 'life's brevity/ And it's insignificance'. Shortlisted for the Whitbread Award for Poetry.

Twenty-Four Hours of Darkness, Twenty-Four Hours of Light Inkwater Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Twenty-Four Hours of Darkness, Twenty-Four Hours of Light moves in and out of contact with the wanderings of a man who is loved by a woman he does not love back. His love for her only surfaces when she leaves him. He is an intellectual saturated with reason, but unable to apply his intellect to life, wherein the process he loses his grasp on sanity. She is more than a woman haunting us because of our regret of pushing her away, she is a lesson that we can never learn from. Inspired by Julio Cortazar's 1963 antinovel Hopscotch, this collection of poems threads unrealized love with the dichotomies of darkness and light, the male and female, creativity and the intellect, fragmentation and the chronological, passive and active reader, as well as reason and intuition, agitates the theme of a futile search. Twenty-Four Hours of Darkness, Twenty-Four Hours of Light is a testament to this poet's reach for spirit in a wide range of subject matters.

Rogue Lawyer Hodder & Stoughton Ltd

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Bright Dead Things examines the chaos that is life, the dangerous thrill of living in a world you know you have to leave one day, and the search to find something that is ultimately "disorderly, and marvelous, and ours." A book of bravado and introspection, of 21st century feminist swagger and harrowing terror and loss, this fourth collection considers how we build our identities out of place and human contact--tracing in intimate detail the various ways the speaker's sense of self both shifts and perseveres as she moves from New York City to rural Kentucky, loses a dear parent, ages past the capriciousness of youth, and falls in love. Limon has often been a poet who wears her heart on her sleeve, but in these extraordinary poems that heart becomes a "huge beating genius machine" striving to embrace and understand the fullness of the present moment. "I am beautiful. I am full of love. I am dying," the poet writes. Building on the legacies of forebears such as Frank O'Hara, Sharon Olds, and Mark Doty, Limon's work is consistently generous and accessible--though every observed moment feels complexly thought, felt, and lived.
