American poetry since 1950 : innovators and outsiders : an anthology by Eliot Weinberger( Book )

14 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and Spanish and held by 808 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since Whitman and Dickinson, most of the major poetry in the United States has been written against the literary establishments and prevailing canons of taste, and often far from the cultural centers. This is the first anthology in many years to gather the work from this continuing tradition of innovators and outsiders, presenting poets and poems that are still excluded from the academic collections. Opening with the last poems of the Modernist masters Ezra Pound, William Carlos Williams, and H.D., the book follows through four generations of writers who have been the primary figures of the new poetries and poetics since 1950. With a historical afterword, complete bibliographies, and generous selections from each of the thirty-five poets, this anthology is the only available introduction to the poets connected with such groups and movements as the Objectivists, the Beats, Black Mountain, the New York School, the San Francisco Renaissance, and ethnopoetics. American Poetry Since 1950 is a new map of the territory, an array of known and unknown contemporary classics. It is full of strange texts and startling procedures, histories and natural histories, high lyricism and extended meditations - extraordinary works that challenge our notions of what a poem ought to be

What happened here : Bush chronicles by Eliot Weinberger( Book )

7 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What Happened Here takes us through the first term of the "Bush junta": the deep history of the neo-conservative "sleeper cell," the invention of the War on Terror, the real wars in Afghanistan and Iraq (in the astonishing "What I Heard About Iraq"), and bizarre Republican beliefs and practices. Written for publication in magazines abroad, translated into sixteen languages, and collected here for the first time, Eliot Weinberger's chronicles of the Bush era range from first-person journalism to political analysis to a kind of documentary prose poetry. The book begins with the inauguration of George W. Bush in January 2001 - and an eerie prediction of the invasion of Iraq - and picks up on September 12, with an account of downtown Manhattan, where Weinberger lives, on the "day after.""--Back cover

Figures & figurations by Octavio Paz( Book )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 405 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Figures & Figurations, one of the last books completed by the late Mexican poet and Nobel Prize laureate Octavio Paz before his death in 1998, is a collaborative effort with his wife of thirty years, the artist Marie Jose Paz. In response to ten of her collage-constructions, he wrote ten new short poems; she in turn created two new artworks in response to two of his earlier poems. First published in Spain in 1991, this book of twelve poems and twelve pieces of art in full color now appears in English for the first time, in a bilingual edition translated by Eliot Weinberger. In addition to the poems and collage-constructions, Figures & Figurations includes an essay by Octavio Paz on Marie Jose Paz's work, "The Whitecaps of Time," in which he relates how her friendship with Joseph Cornell became a stimulus for her assemblages and how she was further spurred on by other friends, such as Roman Jakobson and Elizabeth Bishop."--BOOK JACKET

My Emily Dickinson by Susan Howe( Book )

7 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and French and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For Wallace Stevens, "Poetry is the scholar's art." Susan Howe--taking poet-scholar-critics Charles Olson, H.D., and William Carlos Williams (among others) as her guides--embodies that art in her 1985 My Emily Dickinson (winner of the Before Columbus Foundation Book Award). Howe shows ways in which earlier scholarship had shortened Dickinson's intellectual reach by ignoring the use to which she put her wide reading. Giving close attention to the well-known poem, "My Life had stood--a Loaded Gun," Howe tracks Dickens, Browning, Emily Brontë, Shakespeare, and Spenser, as well as local Connecticut River Valley histories, Puritan sermons, captivity narratives, and the popular culture of the day. "Dickinson's life was language and a lexicon her landscape ... Forcing, abbreviating, pushing, padding, subtracting, riddling, interrogating, re-writing, she pulled text from text ..."

Unlock poems by Bei dao by Beidao( Book )

4 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 227 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unlock presents forty-nine recent poems written in the United States, and may well be Bei Dao's most powerful work to date. Complex, full of startling and sometimes surreal imagery, sudden transitions, and oblique political references, and often embedding bits of bureaucratic speech and unexpected slang, his poetry has been compared to that of Paul Celand and Cesar Vallejo - poets who invented a new poetry and a new language in the attempt to speak of the enormity of their times."--BOOK JACKET
