Running like a woman with her hair on fire : poems by Martina Reisz Newberry( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Martina Newberry's Running Like A Woman With Her Hair on Fire explores the coincident power and vulnerability of the human relationship to its surroundings. Here are poems about nurturing and mourning, lovers, children, friends, relatives--the significant minutiae that forms the ordinary world. Those who people these poems are real; they remember, expect, love, hate, cry, laugh, lose, and sometimes win. Not champion--not outlaws--they relentlessly pursue meaning and reality against the background of a world that often betrays them. These are stories of common experience. There is humor, impertinence, irony, passion and assurance that comes from a well forged identity and the firm belief that what should happen, will happen. Consistent in tone, precise in language, Martina Newberry's voice introduces private and public thoughts and conversations about things that matter. Without whining, without belligerence, this poetry lives with us rather than outside of us, celebrates our willingness to move on and keep moving on regardless of ease, tragedy or victory."--Publisher's website

Glacier lily, poems by Chungmi Kim( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Chungmi Kim explores the themes of longing and displacement in a culture she sees as both askew--like seeing "the mountain upside down"--And engaging, as in her title poem, "Glacier Lily" where identity is born not of the purity of nostalgia but of the coloring of age, vibrant and transforming, as are all of the poems in this collection. --James Ragan

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The scar saloon : poems by Sholeh Wolpé( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proving grounds : poems by Leslie Heywood( Book )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Proving Grounds unfolds a narrative not of strict chronology, but rather the way each poem functions as a moment that gathers the thematic clusters of the struggle for identity in a consumer culture that has no sense of intrinsic value and that struggle's manifestation in the world of athletic performance and the way these general trends interact with individual experience. The poems trace the female body as a primal proving ground where the distance between history and experience form a paradox: the idea that the female body is limited and weak is particularly strange for a narrator who grew up in the generation post-Title IX, when girls were assumed to have the same competencies as men, and who has been called upon to physically shield her mother from her father from the time she was seven. Similarly strange but compelling is the paradox of the deep love for and identification with her father that arises from this first proving ground to shape the rest of her life."--Publisher's website
