Resurgit a Collection of Hymns and Songs of the Resurrection (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Resurgit a Collection of Hymns and Songs of the Resurrection The present volume explains, and, it may be hoped, justifies itself. It is the result of a more careful search than has been hitherto made in the rich field of resurrection-poetry. It finds its purpose in a desire to contribute to the observance of a day, the hopes and associations of which are precious to all branches of the Christian Church; and, besides this, to present a collection of verse sufficiently varied and suggestive to be welcome not only at Easter-time, but throughout the year. For the Christian Sabbath is itself a weekly commemoration of the rising of Christ, and we do not wisely if we keep the Easter-feast but once a year. The scope of the volume might have been greatly enlarged by including poems relating to the ascension and exaltation of Christ, or to the general resurrection, and the joys of heaven.

Drysalter - 2826870192

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.

You Made Me Late Again! EBURY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

With over fifty poems, this book from Britain's favourite poet, You Made Me Late Again! is an essential addition to Pam Ayres' incomparable collection of works. Pam's poems are observant, witty and poignant in equal measure. In 'The Swifts' and 'The Pyracantha Anthem' she marvels at nature, while 'A Patient's Prayer' and 'Litter Moron' offer wry views on Modern Britain. 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'.

Indivisible Autonomedia

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This odd, transcendent and triumphant novel published in 2000 completes a quasi-autobiographical, radically philosophical series of fictions Howe began with First Marriage, published in 1972. Like Howe, Henny's life spans the tempestuous multi-racial world of hipsters and activists in working-class Boston during the 60s and its subsequent fall-out.On the verge of religious conversion, Henny, the book's narrator, locks her husband McCool in a closet so that she might talk better to God. Then she proceeds to make peace with the dead by telling their stories. Lewis, Henny's true love, is a wheelchair-bound black activist and political journalist whose working-class mother is jailed when the group's cache of explosives is found in her home. Then there's their wealthy friend Libby, who crosses the globe in search of enlightenment and spiritual peace. Guiding these characters on their journey are figures as divergent as Nietzsche and Bambi, Marx and St. John of the Cross.As Christopher Martin writes in Rain Taxi, Henny's function as a narrator is to hoist the entire structure of the novel onto her brittle, uneven shoulders and deliver all the embarrassing facts directly to us, her reader/God -- only then do we realize the full breadth and beauty of the narrative Howe has surreptitiously constructed all along. Fanny Howe is the author of several works of fiction (most recently, Economics from Flood Editions) and collections of poems, including One Crossed Out and Gone. She is the winner of the 2000 Lenore Marshall Award for her Selected Poems. Her first collection of essays, The Wedding Dress, was published by UC Press in the Fall of 2003. She lives in Massachusetts but remains Professor Emeritus at UCSD in the Department of Literature.

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.

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.

Bright Dead Things Milkweed Editions

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.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

There is a Chinese proverb that says: 'It is more profitable to raise geese than daughters.' But geese, like daughters, know the obligation to return home. In her exquisite first collection, Sarah Howe explores a dual heritage, journeying back to Hong Kong in search of her roots. With extraordinary range and power, the poems build into a meditation on hybridity, intermarriage and love - what meaning we find in the world, in art, and in each other. Crossing the bounds of time, race and language, this is an enthralling exploration of self and place, of migration and inheritance, and introduces an unmistakable new voice in British 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.

Great Room Inkwater Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

First sensations are born out of darkness. They are promises dispersed into the framework of what we hold sacred. The Great Room 2003-2011 is a gathering of these first encounters, and the search to illuminate the psyche of the spirit using a small Montana town as the fixed point. This collection of poems, folktales and parables pass through the lens of the Yellowstone River waters, Crazy Mountain Range as well as the people living among alfalfa and wheat fields. "I want every word of mine to know there is no way back," Christopher reveals, and here marks his journey into the interwoven spirit and earth of a place. Christopher Keller is a poet, poetry group founder, teacher and ultra endurance athlete. His book, Twenty-Four Hours of Darkness, Twenty-Four Hours of Light was nominated for the 2010 Oregon Book of the Year Award. Christopher is the author of three poetry books; The Strongest Hand on the Loosest Rock, Blindfolding the Nearsightedness of the Body and Twenty-Four Hours of Darkness, Twenty-Four Hours of Light. Christopher resides in Portland, Oregon.
