Gender, Violence, and the Past in Edda and Saga Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Gender, Violence, and the Past in Edda and Saga is the first book to investigate both the relation between gender and violence in the Old Norse Poetic Edda and key family and contemporary sagas, and the interrelated nature of these genres. Beginning with an analysis of eddaic attitudes to heroic violence and its gendered nature through the figures of Gudrun and Helgi, the study broadens out to the whole poetic compilation and how the past (and particularly the mythological past) inflects the heroic present. This paves the way for a consideration of the comparable relationship between the heroic poems themselves and later reworkings of them or allusions to them in the family and contemporary sagas. The book's thematic concentration on gender/sexuality and violence, and its generic concentration on Poetic Edda and later texts which rework or allude to it, enable a diverse but coherent exploration of both key and neglected Norse texts and the way in which their authors display a dual fascination with and rejection of heroic vengeance.

"The weft of this excellent, imaginatively titled volume sparkles with individualistic variations like the myriad facets of a tapestry by Klimt. And yet these six accomplished poets have strung the warp with a golden fiber of subtle, reflective regional consistency." CHARLOTTE SCHOFIELD poet, writer, and author of The Attention Deficit Memoir From the Land of Enchantment and old Route 66 come six poets who gather semi-monthly to read the work of others more famous, then write and critique their own. In this volume you will read a selection from the best of these poems written over the ten-year period of the existence of this group called Fresh Ink New Mexico. "A collection of poems both thoughtful and beautiful, sure to illuminate, awaken, and delight the discerning reader." SEAN MURPHY author of The Time of New Weather, and The Hope Valley Hubcap King. "In this new collection 'where memories protrude in ancient bones and deep arroyos knife through mesas' the poems traverse landscapes as diverse as those of the fabled highway Route 66. Just off the road 'honey mesquite blooms.' Sandhill cranes forage, coyotes prowl and a 'spotted horse gallops in spirals' while 'yucca and chamisa stand silent witness.' "Closer to home a drunken black widow spider spins a skewered web. A poet laments the senseless death of nine Iraqi boys on a soccer field. Famished men 'set snares for wild chickens they'd heard scratching in the brush.' "Here are poems that strive to understand and commemorate the land, the heart, love, memory, the past, the present and all points in-between." MARILYN STABLEIN winner of the New Mexico Book Award for Splitting Hard Ground.

"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.

Robert Browning Shorter Poems Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Robert Browning Shorter Poems: Selected and Edited With Introduction and Notes Now Robert Browning, you writer of plays, Here's a subject made to your hand! Like Shakespeare, who never introduces an English contemporary except into some trivial comic part, he generally finds these subjects either in the remote picturesque past, or amid modern environments unfamiliar to the mass of his readers. No modern poet has done more to expand the intellectual horizon of the average Englishman. Such poems as Prams and T ne Bz'snop orders lzz's T mné in St Praxed's Clearen, for example, seem to condense into a few lines the essence of massy volumes on Byzantine and Renaissance eras. Whatever of the Dryasdust element may have clung to these ancient volumes has disappeared in the process; the descriptions could not be more fresh, vivid, and real, if they related to things of yesterday. The feelings of the modern Florentine gentleman bemoaning the dulness of the country are nearer to us in time, but no nearer in sympathy and comprehension than those of Cleon, rang ing the gifts of the Greek despot in the days of Nero.

Excerpt from The Poems of Victor Hugo, Vol. 17 La Légende Des Siecles Sultan Murad I A Man was Murad, son of Bajazet, Than all Rome's emperors more glorious yet. Fierce lions his seraglios watched before, Murad with murdered victims spread the floor. White bleaching bones between the flags you meet, Long streams of blood ran 'neath his sandaled feet; Flooding the earth, o'er all the east they past, And to the west their smoke and shadow cast - Such carnage with his scimiter he wrought. His horse a panther by the world was thought. Smyrna and Tunis, which their Beys regret, Like dismal corpses were on gibbets set Sublime! The Caucasus by force and ruse, And Libanus from Kirghis and the Druse He took. Her chiefs, when Ephesus he sacked, He hung; and all the priests of Patras racked. Through Murad's victories that widely reek, The vulture wipes his gore-bedabbled beak About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Glanlua and Other Poems Glanlua. Prologue. With drooping head, in lingering dream, round the shadowy world, Dawn's light steps awake her not, Night lay dimly curl'd! Timidly the Dawn looked back and whispered to the Day, "See who lingers past her hour, hasten thy bright ray, Earth is longing for thy light." Day with sudden eyes Came and looked upon the Night, who seized with swift surprise, Over land and ocean breathed a vapour white, Hidden in the coils whereof safe she made her flight. Sunrise and a summer morning - gleams of glassy sea, Jagged cliffs and crystal waters, mists that rise and flee! Wider grow the opening spaces as the silent tide of light Winds in golden flood triumphant thro' the silver wreck of night. And, behold, emerging slowly from the whiteness one by one, On the ocean many a galley hails the rising sun.

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.

Now, Then OxfordPoets

Illusions and delusions, joys and jokes, mysteries of memory and temporal paradox figure in Andrew McNeillie's collection. Here are sequences of bird poems, and tree poems, lines from an autobiography, lines from America, and poems about old age, in elegiac, ironic, and even vitriolic mode. These poems are about being and longing, belonging and not belonging in the world, past or present, now or then. They are about having and not having a home to go to. Haunted by the rapt, rural and wilderness gaze of childhood, youth and young manhood, the poems in "Now, Then" express worlds and times past of immediate sensual being and seeing "then" - "bubble-rapt" - in a "sound-warp ...like a dipper submerged in a rushing pool" - before the world caught up with their author: now counting his blessings, cursing his luck as time flies faster in life's dark wood.

Urban Aboriginals and the relation to their cultural heritage GRIN Verlag

Seminar paper from the year 2008 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, printed single-sided, grade: 2,7, RWTH Aachen University (Institut für Anglistik ), course: Readings in Australian Aboriginal Literature, Proseminar, 7 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: More than 230 years ago, Captain James Cook, a British explorer, discovered the Australian continent and claimed it for Great Britain. From then on, the Indigenous Australian population experienced a drastic cultural and social change. Today around 68% of the Aboriginal population [ ] live in urban environements (Knudsen 2004, S. 73). Despite the progress in assimilation, smoldering sources of social friction between Aboriginal people and the white community, like unemployment, poverty, alcoholism and bad health care, remain. These subjects often occur in literature of indigenous authors, especially poetry, the most popular genre of Aboriginal creative expression inEnglish (Shoemaker 1989, S. 179).Another important theme, which is often worked up in indigenous poetry, is the urban Aboriginal s relation to their cultural heritage, which will be the topic of this termpaper.This theme is of high topicality nowadays, considering the increasing number of Aboriginals living in urban environments. It will be important to figure out to what extent the Indigenous s past does still play a role in their present lives. Also it will be of interest if they still feel connected with their cultural past, if nature still plays a decisive role, even in civilised Aboriginals lives, and how they generally feel about their situation of being part of two significantly differing cultures. Therefore, the poems will be analysed on the basis of the subtopics nature, identity and past.The aim of this paper is to provide a small overview of recent poetic works dealing with this topical theme of the urban Aboriginals relation to their cultural heritage to draw the reader s attention to a new, probably even largely unknown part of Aboriginal s lives.This termpaper will first give a short overview about the Aboriginal poetry in general and the authors lives. Later on, poems in which subjects like past, civilisation or nature occur will be analysed. Poems by Oodgeroo Noonuccal and Jack Davis will act as exemplary works to be analysed and interpreted. Therefore, at the beginning of the termpaper some short biographical facts about these poets will be given to become acquainted with their culturalbackground.

Elisavietta Ritchie is a woman who has really lived and this verbal rumination on her heritage, the people she has loved, the family recipes for borscht or cherry vodka or bread are filled with such exquisite, well-realized detail, a reader is drawn along with the force of a rip tide on a summer afternoon at the beach. It's all simply so interesting. And her conversations with the past and recently dead intrigue us: "It tolls for thee," they remind us, and yes, we all do eventually get out alive according to this wise woman when it comes our time to ponder the great mystery of death. Russia's nostalgia for its glorious past - its literature, art, dance, theatre could not be extinguished in a century of Communist revisionism. This nostalgia seems worked into the very DNA of the Russian soul right down to the present day as the country seeks to take the world stage once again. At the root of this nostalgia is the ghost of a genteel aristocracy which ended in the forest assassination of the Czar's family and the Russian diaspora after the world wars that followed. As one of the world's great cultures, it continues to shape history and art and in this beautiful example, poetry. What we have to learn from the poems of Lisa Ritchie is everything worth preserving and protecting in life: Love, lovers, children, cousins, parents, home, shared meals, the memory of those who shaped us, the courage that won freedom, pride in self and country, an abiding attachment to the beloved dead reaching to us from the other side of life. Here are poems that extol life, sing of its joy, despite the cruelty and entropy that threaten at every turn. Lisa Ritchie is a person you would want to know, whose poetry you have here, life seen through her bright, intelligent, compassionate eyes, what poetry does at its best, give heart. An old proverb has it that "it is in the shelter of each other that we live." These poems give respite in a world too often in need of such shelter.

The selections are grouped under eight thematic headings-"Geography's Landscapes," "Poems from the Monastery," "Poems of the Sacred," "Songs of Contemplation," "History's Voices: Past and Present," "Engaging the World," "On Being Human," "Merton and Other Languages."
