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.

Ceramic Gulf and Other Poems New Generation Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

If you have visited the coves and inlets of south-western Turkey you will relish these poems. They constantly transport the reader to the wilder beauty of a Mediterranean landscape rarely to be found further west. Here are the pine-clad slopes of the Ceramic Gulf, the sheltering bays, the olive groves edging the salty shore, the hidden clefts and mysterious springs and pools. It is a place that resonates an ancient pagan past. Alan Mountford's reflective poems, with their sharp images of colour, movement and changing weather, remind us that it is still largely an untamed landscape. Only the poet's eye, he says, tries to subdue it: 'One cannot help but see the landscape emblematically - gendered, familial, rich in secrets, myth, alien, but not unfriendly...' Emperors and barbarians swept through classical Caria. Yet there were settled communities that have left behind tantalising and evocative remains. Today's golden hordes, or those on their 'blue' cruises, search out an 'unspoilt' vision of this ancient world to renew their inner fire and sense of self. But the poet shrewdly observes that nothing remains static in the narrative of landscape, or in our own lives. Change is a constant factor. The landscape itself is victim of weather and human endeavour. What we are left with is 'a sense of place hard won from earth and air and light'. The successful poetic record of this 'sense of being and belonging' is ours for the finding in this finely wrought collection.

Ring of Bone City Lights Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

**A San Francisco Chronicle Best Book of 2012** Lew Welch was a brilliant and troubled poet, legendary among his Beat peers. Ring of Bone collects poems, songs, and even a few drawings, documenting the full sweep of his creative output, from his early years until just before his death. This new edition includes a biographic timeline and a statement of poetics gleaned from Welch's own writing. Welch entered Reed College in 1948, and the following year moved into a house with Gary Snyder; they were soon joined by Philip Whalen. With the emergence of the Beat movement, Welch's friends began receiving national attention and his desire to devote himself completely to his poetry was galvanized. He soon became a part of the San Francisco poetry scene. Legendary editor Donald Allen included Welch's poetry in The New American Poetry -- the seminal anthology published in 1960. That same year Welch's first book, Wobbly Rock, was released. He continued to write extensively, and in 1965 published three books. Despite his burgeoning success, Welch suffered from bouts with depression, and on May 23, 1971, Gary Snyder went up to Welch's campsite in the Sierra Nevada mountains and found a suicide note. Despite an extensive search, Welch's body was never recovered. "Lew Welch writes lyrical poems of clarity, humor, and dark probings ...jazz musical phrasings of American speech is one of Welch's clearest contributions." --Gary Snyder "...Music permeates his poems, which range from scored lyrics to epistolary correspondence to formal villanelles...It's fascinating to trace the evolution of this artist, from his early, lax, exultant style to his later, less jubilant work, characterized by benedictions, invocations, and requests. This is a necessary read for anyone interested in the greater Beat movement and its progenitors."--Booklist "His luminous poems feel as vibrant today as when they first burst from the wellsprings of creativity in his own head...A postmodern Walt Whitman..."--San Francisco Chronicle "In the poet's own words, [Ring of Bone] is a spiritual autobiography better description of him exists than that which came in his own vision, deep in the wilds of the Klamath Mountains, the poem after which the collection is titled. ..These 40 years later, Lew, you are missed."--The Rumpus "Ring of Bone: Collected Poems is Welch's major work. Exuberant, funny, dark, hypnotic, Welch's poems are as infused with nature as [Gary] Snyder's and as spiritually alive as [Philip] Whalen's. They're technically brilliant, grounded in form and wildly experimental..."--The Oregonion

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.

Michael Tolkien - Refuge Legend Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Michael Tolkien was born in Birmingham in 1943, and brought up in rural south Oxfordshire and North Yorkshire. He studied Classics and English at St. Andrews and Oxford, and worked as a secondary school teacher in Rutland. 'He has an adroit eye and ear for descriptions of place. The collection's title poem illustrates his range when he recalls a visit to Castle Howard...Much for me to ponder, enjoy and remember' (Martin Bax: Ambit 199). '...His best something both original and informed by the tradition he loves: they are visually and aurally satisfying...there are unmissable poems in each of his collections...But for the moment, here is 'No Time for Roses', a book that uniquely celebrates absences, a book for which good reads - hundreds of them - should make time' (Helena Nelson: Poetry Salzburg Review. 17, Spring 2010). His 'Leaning Not to Touch' was runner-up in Redbeck's 1996 collection competition. In 1998 he was a New Voice in the East Midlands Arts reading tour. 'Reaching for a Stranger' was published by Shoestring Press in 1999. In 2000 Redbeck published his first full collection, 'Outstripping Gravity', following by 'Exposures' (2003) and 'Taking Cover' (2005). In 2000 Poetry Salzburg published 'No Time for Roses'. 'Refuge' (2012) suggests there are many kinds of search for sanctuary. In Part 1 characters or objects reveal this in their unique identity. Part 2 ('Cloister and Promenade') is more comic, even satirical about how dubious kinds of stability or identity are achieved. Part 3 looks at specific refuges. Part 4 explores attempts to find security by identifying with surroundings and those who are close to us.

You Made Me Late Again! EBURY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

With over fifty new poems from Britain's favourite poet, You Made Me Late Again! is an essential addition to Pam Ayres' incomparable collection of works.

From the dog being afraid of the toaster to your son leaving home for university; and from the search for that perfect swimsuit to becoming a gran for the first time - Pam's poems are beautifully crafted, and her subjects the everyday and the universal. Delightfully illustrated, most of the poems in You Made Me Late Again! are brand new, yet it also features several firm favourites from her stage shows, published for the first time, such as 'The Make-up Lady' and 'Tippy Tappy Feet'.

Introducing George the Poet Virgin Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"The title is Search Party - the idea being that we're all out here looking for something, and my poems are my way of finding myself". (Spoken word performer/writer/recording artist/voice of a generation, George). The Poet blends poetry and rap, an inner-city upbringing with a Cambridge education, and social and political commentary with youth culture. In this, his first collection of poems, George draws on his own experience, the conflict and the contradictions in his story, mixed with a love of hip-hop, grime and the desire to make a change. In poems like 'Estate of Mind', 'My City' and 'YOLO' it's a social consciousness, a satirical wit and an infectious rhythm that makes George a unique and exciting new voice, transforming the spoken word and poetry scene. "Mpanga's work is accessible and skilful, fuelled by an interest in rhetoric". (Guardian).

Happiness Faber & Faber Poetry

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Happiness is the long-anticipated debut collection from the award-winning Jack Underwood. With the sort of smart, persuasive voice associated with Simon Armitage and Michael Donaghy, these poems worry at the world in search of consolation, or else meet life's absurdity and strangeness half-way; whether sitting proudly atop an unexploded bomb, or injecting blood under the skin of a banana, playfulness and imagination are vehicles for confronting 'the fearful and forgotten things I've lied to myself about'. Here are poems which address anxiety about fatherhood, remorse for lost lovers and friends, or mourn for a miscarried sibling. Happiness is a collection preoccupied with the ephemerality of happiness itself, at the ever-present possibility of its departure, and the ways we try to grasp and keep hold of it. 'Every single thought I'm having is about LOVE', here meaning both the pleasure and panic of love, its peculiarity; love as a feeling of risk, love for one's own body, familiar yet estranged, of 'cack-handed LOVE at his console', love like 'pausing to move a snail somewhere safer in the rain'.

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.

Contemporary American Ethnic Poets Greenwood Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Until recently, many of America's ethnic poets remained underrepresented in classrooms and literary anthologies. This volume, celebrating the lives and works of 75 significant poets, testifies to the power of poetry to change perspectives. These poets produce works that display the range of human experiences and expression, with an added element of intensity from being both American and ethnic. This book presents the lives and literary contributions of famous and unfamiliar poets alike. Offering concise personal and professional information, including awards, coverage includes such poets as Maya Angelou, N. Scott Momaday, Leslie Marmon Silko, Rita Dove, Gary Soto, Pat Mora, Derek Walcott, and more. Readers are also introduced to the major works and thematic concerns of such lesser-known poets as Luci Tapahonso, Li-Young Lee, and Jimmy Santiago Baca. A dozen different ethnic backgrounds are represented, including Asian American, African American, Jewish American, American Indian, Latino/a, and Palestinian American. Full bibliographic information following each entry will help users locate the collections and anthologies where the cited poems can easily be found. Instead of having to turn to a number of different sources for information on diverse poets, users will find here a wealth of information to satisfy their individual needs and interests. Introduced with an inspiring essay on multi-cultural poetry, this multi-use guide follows standard A-to-Z reference format for direct access to all biographical and bibliographic content. Set up to aid librarians and educators, additional components allow users to search for information in a number of different ways. Readers interested in poets of a particular ethnicity will find two helpful guides: an appendix listing poets by ethnic background and a supplementary list of additional poets, not covered in the text, also organized by ethnicity. For student assignments, a thematic guide identifies which poets have written about important topics such as ancestry, nature, family, lesbianism, immigration, and internment. Whether used a collection development tool or a research guide, this valuable reference will earn its place on the reference shelf.
