Jab by Mark Halliday ( )
6 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Human, hunger, happiness, hope, heart, and Halliday all start with h, as does ham. Accident? Maybe! But seldom have the flour of the humanistic and the egg yolk of honesty mixed more swellingly with the yeast of desire and the salt of self-doubtnot to mention the olive paste of ambition. Halliday has whacked Death and Mutabilitie before, but this time ... this time he whacks them again. After this Jab, the world will never be the same. Or at least, a few hundred conversations, here and there, will be somewhat affected. Roll over Death, and tell Mutabilitie the news
Selfwolf by Mark Halliday ( )
7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 1,161 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his third book of poems, Mark Halliday grapples with the endless struggle between self-concern and awareness of the rights of others. Through humor, ironic twists, and refreshing candor, these poems confront a variety of situationsdeath, divorce, artistic egotism and envy, personal relationshipswhere the very idea of self is under siege. "If Selfwolf were a pop music CD, it would be hailed as Mark Halliday's breakthrough album. ... This third collection of poems teems with unsparing confessions of misdirected lust, lost faith, regret and a winningly goofy cheerfulness in the face o

Stevens and the interpersonal by Mark Halliday ( Book )
8 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 552 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With Wallace Stevens emerging as a father figure for American poetry of the late twentieth century, Mark Halliday argues that it is time for this ""poet of ideas"" to undergo an ethical critique. In this bold, accessible reconsideration of Stevens' work, he insists on the importance of interpersonal relations in any account of human life in the modern world. Although Stevens outwardly denies aspects of life that center on such relations as those between friends, lovers, family members, and political constituents, Halliday uncovers in his poetry an anxious awareness of the importance of thes
Tasker Street by Mark Halliday ( Book )
3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Winner of the 1991 Juniper Prize, the annual poetry award sponsored by the University of Massachusetts Press. Written in the tones and rhythms of everyday speech, Mark Halliday's poems focus on gaps between people and the questions that arise when we try to bridge those gaps through language. Some poems explore the fissures created by race, gender, and class. More often, though, the kinds of separation and alienation evoked in Tasker Street emerge from the sheer fact of difference between one consciousness and another. The poems wonder how the pain and frustration of this isolation may at times be relieved or counterbalanced through empathy, love, and art. The possibility that lost selves may be rescued through language haunts the first of the book's four sections. The poems in the second section emphasize the need for a feeling that one's life is significant, not perpetually dissolving. In the third section, Halliday struggles to imagine the inner lives of people against the obliterative force of the multiplicity of selves. Six final poems crystallize yearnings for some sense of consolation and renewed confidence

Thresherphobe by Mark Halliday ( Book )
6 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his sixth collection, Mark Halliday continues to seek ways of using the smart playfulness of such poets as Frank O'Hara and Kenneth Koch to explore life's emotional mysteries-both dire and hilarious-from the perpetual dissolving of our past to the perpetual frustration of our cravings for ego-triumph, for sublime connection with an erotically idealized Other, and for peace of spirit. Animated by belief in the possible truths to be reached in interpersonal speech, Halliday's voice-driven poetry wants to find insight-or at least a stay against confusion-through personality without
Keep this forever : poems by Mark Halliday ( Book )
4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There are many voices within these poems, each distinct and accessible, all of them subversive and disarmingly personal. This nimble poet deftly lures readers to his penetrating observations by not being afraid to open his own emotional veins; he often leads the way with a torch lit by his own pain. Yet his beguiling humor paradoxically occupies the same space as his deepest grief, bringing honest perspective and insight to the most sorrowful circumstance. --Tupelo Press
