Citizen : an American lyric by Claudia Rankine( Book )

23 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 1,955 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Claudia Rankine's bold new book recounts mounting racial aggressions in ongoing encounters in twenty-first-century daily life and in the media. Some of these encounters are slights, seeming slips of the tongue, and some are intentional offensives in the classroom, at the supermarket, at home, on the tennis court with Serena Williams and the soccer field with Zinedine Zidane, online, on TV -- everywhere, all the time. The accumulative stresses come to bear on a person's ability to speak, perform, and stay alive. Our addressability is tied to the state of our belonging, Rankine argues, as are our assumptions and expectations of citizenship. In essay, image, and poetry, Citizen is a powerful testament to the individual and collective effects of racism in our contemporary, often named 'post-race' society."--Publisher's description
Eleven more American women poets in the 21st century : poetics across North America( )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,602 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eleven More American Women Poets in the 21st Century is an exciting sequel to its predecessors in the American Poets in the 21st Century series. Like the earlier anthologies, this volume includes generous selections of poetry by some of the best poets of our time as well as illuminating poetics statements and incisive essays on their work. This unique organization makes these books invaluable teaching tools. Broadening the lens through which we look at contemporary poetry, this new volume extends its geographical net by including Caribbean and Canadian poets. Representing three generations of women writers, among the insightful pieces included in this volume are essays by Karla Kelsey on Mary Jo Bang's modes of artifice, Christine Hume on Carla Harryman's kinds of listening, Dawn Lundy Martin on M. NourbeSe Phillip (for whom "english / is a foreign anguish"), and Sina Queyras on Lisa Robertson's confoundingly beautiful surfaces. A companion web site will present audio of each poet's work. -- Back cover

Collected poems : 1950-2012 by Adrienne Rich( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 750 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adrienne Rich was the singular voice of her generation and one of our most important American poets. She brought discussions of gender, race, and class to the forefront of poetical discourse, pushing formal boundaries and consistently examining both self and society. This collected volume traces the evolution of her poetry, from her earliest work, which was formally exact and decorous, to her later work, which became increasingly radical in both its free-verse form and feminist and political content. The entire body of her poetry is on display in this vast volume, including the National Book Award-winning 'Diving Into the Wreck' and her prize-winning 'Atlas of the Difficult World.' The 'Collected Poems' of Adrienne Rich gathers and memorializes all of her boldly political, formally ambitious, thoughtful, and lucid work--the whole of which makes her one of the most prolific and influential poets of our time."--Book jacket
American poets in the 21st century : the new poetics by Claudia Rankine( Book )

10 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 591 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Understanding the current moment in poetry can be a difficult task, as the reader must sort among the avant-garde and mainstream, the traditional and the experimental. A welcome introduction to contemporary poetics, this collection represents one of the first attempts to chart the progress of a new generation of poets. Each chapter focuses on one poet, and includes a selection of poems, a brief statement of purpose by the poet, and a critical essay by a notable scholar. Working in forms ranging from the post-confessional lyric to documentary poetics, from the prose poem and the sonnet to sound poetry, these thirteen poets rank among the most notable and distinct of recent years
Don't let me be lonely : an American lyric by Claudia Rankine( Book )

15 editions published between 2004 and 2018 in 3 languages and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Claudia Rankine, well known for her experimental multi-genre writing, fuses the lyric, the essay, and the visual in this politically and morally fierce examination of solitude in the rapacious and media-driven assault on selfhood that is contemporary America. Rankine strives toward clarity - of thought, and imagination - while always arguing that recognition of others is the only salvation for ourselves, our art, and our government." "Don t Let Me Be Lonely is an important new confrontation with our culture, with a voice at its heart bewildered by its inadequacy in the face of race riots, terrorist attacks, medicated depression, and the antagonism of the television that won't leave us alone."--Jacket
The racial imaginary : writers on race in the life of the mind( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To think of creativity in terms of transcendence is itself specific and partial--a lovely dream perhaps, but an inhuman one. "It is not only white writers who make a prize of transcendence, of course. Many writers of all backgrounds see the imagination as a historical, as a generative place where race doesn't and shouldn't enter, a place of bodies that transcend the legislative, the economic--in other words, transcend the stuff that doesn't lend itself much poetry. In this view the imagination is postracial, a posthistorical and postpolitical utopia. . . . To bring up race for these writers is to inch close to the anxious space of affirmative action, the scarring qualifieds. "So everyone is here."--Claudia Rankine and Beth Loffreda, from the introduction In 2011, a poem published in a national magazine by a popular white male poet made use of a black female body. A conversation ensued, and ended. Claudia Rankine subsequently created Open Letter, a web forum for writers to relate the effects and affects of racial difference and to explore art's failure, thus far, to adequately imagine"--Provided by publisher

Plot by Claudia Rankine( Book )

5 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A postmodern dialogue about pregnancy, childbirth, and artistic expression, the electrifying journey is charted through dreams, conversations, and reflections - it crosses genres, existing at times in poetry, at times in dialogue and prose, in order to arrive at a new understanding of humanity."--Jacket
Nick Cave : Until by Nick Cave( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book documents Cave's most extensive work to date, turning his art inside out. Cave takes us inside the belly of one of his iconic sculptures with an immersive environment populated by a dazzling array of found objects, echoing some of Cave's and America's most confounding dilemmas: gun violence, racial inequality, injustice within our cities' police departments, and death. An installation diary and numerous images reveal how an idea becomes reality. Until also incorporates special appearances by dancers, singer/ songwriters, and poets, as well as community forums, and opportunities for public debate and engagement. Transcripts of the first of these events accompany the book's illustrations

Nothing in nature is private by Claudia Rankine( Book )

3 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and held by 115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Nothing in Nature Is Private, her first collection, Claudia Rankine voices the crisis of a late twentieth century immigrant's daily landings into the lights of North America; the seductions and uneasy reflections that insist on a democracy of distraction, defenselessness and indifference: "Speckled particles dance/ in a path of light, so it seems/ it doesn't matter what's in the road."" "Exploring racism as a permanent part of the American landscape, Rankine descends from darkness into the unrelenting-dark-of-whiteness to see and to know for herself." "Whereas Adrienne Rich describes 'diving into the wreck," Rankine "descends" to find a darkness so complete that even the wreck is made invisible by the darkness - the whiteness, which is itself the wreck. The paradoxes of privilege are revealed in the peeled back places of Rankine's poetry. Her simultaneous access to detachment and to intimacy makes these poems both vulnerable and street tough." "Although no escape is offered from an endemic "violence" that "seems kin to our skin," Rankine's intelligence and wry, understated humor keeps the reader both included and uncomfortable."--BOOK JACKET
