Or to begin again by Ann Lauterbach( Book )

4 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 342 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ann Lauterbach's ninth work of poetry, Or to Begin Again, takes its name from a sixteen poem elegy that resists its own end, as it meditates on the nearness of specific attachment and loss against the mute background of historical forces in times of war. In the center of the book is a twelve part narrative, "Alice in the Wasteland," inspired by Lewis Carroll's great character and T.S. Eliot's 1922 modernist poem. Alice is accosted by an invisible Voice as she wanders and wonders about the nature of language in relation to perception. In this volume, Lauterbach again shows the range of her formal inventiveness, demonstrating the visual dynamics of the page in tandem with the powerful musical cadences and imagery of a contemporary master."--Back cover

If in time : selected poems, 1975-2000 by Ann Lauterbach( Book )

6 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ann Lauterbach's poetry is quantum-packed inside its own reality, releasing beams of light and time that bend across the world of human beauty without having ever left the radiant point where the poems begin. This simultaneity is her gift, and the mystery and longing in her work, the wit and heart, are the things we feel on our skin. --Don DeLillo
Hum by Ann Lauterbach( Book )

6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Hum, her seventh collection of poetry, Ann Lauterback configures her lyricism against calamity, ideas of order against chance dispersal, retrieval against loss. These poems bring the reader to the crux where public events impinge on personal reception, and the act of listening is understood as our hope for engagement and response."--Jacket
And for example by Ann Lauterbach( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In And For Example, her fifth volume of poetry, Ann Lauterbach considers the ways in which language constitutes a shifting landscape of examples by which we come to know ourselves and the world. What we choose to name is as significant as what we choose to ignore or forget, and these choices, whether in the personal articulations of love and grief, or in the public domain of politics and commerce, inform our actions on the temporal stage. One choice determines the next, as notes in music or strokes in abstract painting, and the poem is built from a series of such gestures, each of which is complete in itself. "Our Lady of Provocation ... whose meanings we can piece together/ from her journals that were torn into bandages/ to wrap the wounds of the dying." In Part One, "The Untelling," Lauterbach explores the instability of facts. In the long central poem, "For Example," she elaborates the links between the perceived and the real in our determination of what is true. In this poem's final two sections, she invokes a fire (inspired by her witnessing the Oakland fires of 1992) as an image of the transformational force from which new ways of seeing and making might occur
Clamor by Ann Lauterbach( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ann Lauterbach's landscapes and people come to us as strangely as they do in real life. Prom night, Mozart and salad bars coexist easily if dangerously in her 'city ready to explore/all the oblique ruins of the unsaid'. This is a rich and remarkable collection."--John Ashbery
On a stair by Ann Lauterbach( Book )

5 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ann Lauterbach's fifth collection takes its title from Emerson's great essay, Experience: "Where do we find ourselves'" he asks. Lauterbach's stair sits precariously between a quest for spiritual vitality and a sense of the overwhelming materiality of our world. Identifying with the clown, the nomad and the thief figures whose ghostly marginality haunt this book, Lauterbach brings us, with a dazzling range of formal and imagistic resources, to a new understanding of how language inscribes the relationship between self-knowledge and cultural meaning
Under the Sign by Ann Lauterbach( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new collection from the author of Or To Begin Again, a finalist for the 2009 National Book Award in Poetry Ann Lauterbach is one of America's most innovative and provocative poets, acclaimed for her fierce, sensuous and intellectually charged poems. In this, her ninth book of poems, Lauterbach pursues longstanding inquiries into how language forms and informs our understanding of the relation between empirical observation and subjective response; worldly attachment and inwardness; the given and the chosen. The poems set out not so much to find cogent resolutions to these fluid dyads as to open them to the fact of unknowing that is at the core of all human curiosity and desire. A central prose section tracks along a meditative edge, engaging the risky task of opening the mind to the limits of apprehension; the final section evokes, in the figure of the instructor, the essential contemporary question of how information becomes knowledge

Here comes kitty : a comic opera by Richard Kraft( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this wildly irreverent collage narrative, Los Angeles artist Richard Kraft reassembles a pre-perestroika era comic about a Polish spy infiltrating the Nazis, orchestrating a multiplicity of voices into joyous cacophony. Like an Indian miniature painting, each comic book page is densely layered, collapsing foreground and background, breaking the frame and merging time. An enormous cast of characters emerges as Kraft appropriates images and texts from an extraordinary variety of sources (the Amar Chitra Katha comics of Hindu mythology, Jimmy Swaggart's Old and New Testament stories, the 1960s English football annual Scorcher, underground porn comics like Cherry, images from art history, outdated encyclopedias and more). Kraft constructs a world constantly in flux, rich with dark humor and revelatory nonsense. Writer Danielle Dutton's set of 16 interpolations punctuate the book using similar strategies of appropriation and juxtaposition to create texts that sing in the same arresting register as Kraft's collages. 'Here comes Kitty' also includes a conversation between poet Ann Lauterbach and artist Richard Kraft

"Ann Lauterbach considers the animated, elastic relation between what is given and what is chosen through the lens of art critical thinking and her own experience as a poet. More meditation than argument, the essay brings to focus compelling ideas and questions surrounding the significance of art for the contemporary world"--Back cover
