Stevens and the interpersonal by Mark Halliday( Book )

12 editions published between 1991 and 2016 in English and held by 538 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 these relations. Here we see the difficulties Stevens made for himself in wanting to offer a thoroughly satisfying version of secular spiritual health in the modern world without facing up to the moral and psychological implications of his own interpersonal needs, problems, and responsibilities. The final chapter reveals, however, an unusually encouraging "avuncular" attitude toward the reader of the poetry, which may be felt to redeem Stevens from the alienation observed earlier. Halliday develops his views by way of comparisons between Stevens and other poets, especially Thomas Hardy, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, and John Ashbery.Originally published in 1991.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.

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

Selfwolf by Mark Halliday( Book )

11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jab by Mark Halliday( Book )

9 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 195 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

Keep this forever : poems by Mark Halliday( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 137 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
Thresherphobe by Mark Halliday( Book )

5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 111 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
