Gladys Cromwell: Folded Power (Poem)

 

Folded Power

Sorrow can wait,
For there is magic in the calm estate
Of grief; lo, where the dust complies
Wisdom lies.

Sorrow can rest,
Indifferent, with her head upon her breast;
Idle and hushed, guarded from fears;
Content with tears.

Sorrow can bide,
With sealèd lids and hands unoccupied.
Sorrow can fold her latent might,
Dwelling with night.

But Sorrow will rise
From her dream of sombre and hushed eternities.
Lifting a Child, she will softly move
With a mother’s love.

She will softly rise.
Her embrace the dying will recognize,
Lifting them gently through strange delight
To a clearer light.

Gladys Cromwell
(1885-1919)
Folded Power

Kerouac on Record. A Literary Soundtrack

Kerouac on Record.

A Literary Soundtrack

 

He was the leading light of the Beat Generation writers and the most dynamic author of his time, but Jack Kerouac also had a lifelong passion for music, particularly the mid-century jazz of New York City, the development of which he witnessed first-hand during the 1940s with Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie and Thelonious Monk to the fore.

 

The novelist, most famous for his 1957 book On the Road, admired the sounds of bebop and attempted to bring something of their original energy to his own writing, a torrent of semi-autobiographical stories he published between 1950 and his early death in 1969. Yet he was also drawn to American popular music of all kinds – from the blues to Broadway ballads – and when he came to record albums under his own name, he married his unique spoken word style with some of the most talented musicians on the scene.

Kerouac’s musical legacy goes well beyond the studio recordings he made himself: his influence infused generations of music makers who followed in his work – from singer-songwriters to rock bands. Some of the greatest transatlantic names – Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead, Van Morrison and David Bowie, Janis Joplin and Tom Waits, Sonic Youth and Death Cab for Cutie, and many more – credited Kerouac’s impact on their output.

In Kerouac on Record, we consider how the writer brought his passion for jazz to his prose and poetry, his own record releases, the ways his legacy has been sustained by numerous more recent talents, those rock tributes that have kept his memory alive and some of the scores that have featured in Hollywood adaptations of the adventures he brought to the printed page.

Simon Warner is a journalist, lecturer and broadcaster who teaches Popular Music Studies at the University of Leeds in the UK. He has, over a number of years, written live reviews and counterculture obituaries for The Guardian and The Independent, and has a particular interest in the relationship between the Beat Generation writers–Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs and others–and rock culture. His previous books include Rockspeak: The Language of Rock and Pop (1996) and Howl for Now: A Celebration of Allen Ginsberg’s epic protest poem (2005).

Jim Sampas is a music and film producer. His musical works often focuses on major cultural figures such Jack Kerouac (who is his Uncle), The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, The Smiths, Bob Dylan, and The Rolling Stones. He has persuaded a galaxy of stars to partake of a unique aesthetic marriage, as vintage works are resurrected in contemporary arrangements in projects covered by such major news outlets as People Magazine, NPR, The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and many others.

Menno Wigman: Verzamelde gedichten

Menno Wigman (1966-2018) was een van de grootste en eigenzinnigste dichters van Nederland.

Zijn stijl werd gekenmerkt door een zwart-romantische toon die, afgewisseld met een weemoedige blik, direct tot de verbeelding sprak. Zijn gedichten waren even toegankelijk als experimenteel, een combinatie van een uitgesproken intensiteit met de beleving van het alledaagse. Wigmans Verzamelde gedichten zijn samengesteld door Neeltje Maria Min en Rob Schouten, zijn goede vrienden en de beste kenners van zijn werk.

Van Menno Wigman (1966-2018) verschenen vijf dichtbundels, een dagboek, een essaybundel en vele vertalingen, bloemlezingen en gelegenheidsuitgaven. Tot de vele prijzen die hij kreeg, behoren de Gedichtendagprijs (2002), de Jan Campert-prijs (2002), de A. Roland Holstprijs (2015) en de Ida Gerhardt Poëzieprijs (2018).

Laatste boek F. Starik: ‘Dichter van dienst’ over De eenzame uitvaart

Laatste boek van F. Starik: ‘Dichter van dienst’ over De eenzame uitvaart. Dichter van dienst is het vaarwel van F. Starik, zijn indrukwekkend en aangrijpend laatste boek over eenzame uitvaarten in Amsterdam die hij zestien jaar lang vormgaf.

‘Ik ben De Eenzame Uitvaart in de loop van tijd als een levensopdracht gaan zien, als een Taak die je tot het einde zult vervullen, niet als een project waarmee je na een tijdje weer ophoudt.

Het recept is eenvoudig en inmiddels bekend: dichters schrijven een gedicht – en dragen dat op de uitvaart voor – voor die mensen, die anders waren overgeschoten, voor wie niemand zou komen, over wie niemand had gesproken, was de dichter er niet geweest om afscheid te nemen, vaarwel te zeggen.’

Het boek: ‘Dichter van dienst’ is het vaarwel van F. Starik (1958-2018), zijn indrukwekkend en aangrijpend laatste boek over eenzame uitvaarten in Amsterdam die hij zestien jaar lang vormgaf.

Met gedichten van o.a. Maria Barnas, Wim Brands, Anneke Brassinga, Eva Gerlach, Erik Jan Harmens, Judith Herzberg, Neeltje Maria Min, Marieke Lucas Rijneveld en Menno Wigman.

Ngugi wa Thiong’o: Minutes of Glory and Other Stories

Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o, although renowned for his novels, memoirs, and plays, honed his craft as a short story writer. From “The Fig Tree” (“Mugumo” in this collection), written in 1960, his first year as an undergraduate at Makerere University College in Uganda, to the playful “The Ghost of Michael Jackson,” written as a professor at the University of California, Irvine, these collected stories reveal a master of the short form.

Covering the period of British colonial rule and resistance in Kenya to the bittersweet experience of independence—and including two stories that have never before been published in the United States— Ngũgĩ’s collection features women fighting for their space in a patriarchal society; big men in their Bentleys who have inherited power from the British; and rebels who still embody the fighting spirit of the downtrodden.

One of Ngũgĩ’s most beloved stories, “Minutes of Glory,” tells of Beatrice, a sad but ambitious waitress who fantasizes about being feted and lauded over by the middle-class clientele in the city’s beer halls. Her dream leads her on a witty and heartbreaking adventure.

Published for the first time in America, Minutes of Glory and Other Stories is a major literary event that celebrates the storytelling might of one of Africa’s best-loved writers.

Georg Trakl: An meine Schwester (Gedicht)

An meine Schwester

Wo du gehst wird Herbst und Abend,
Blaues Wild, das unter Bäumen tönt,
Einsamer Weiher am Abend.

Leise der Flug der Vögel tönt,
Die Schwermut über deinen Augenbogen.
Dein schmales Lächeln tönt.

Gott hat deine Lider verbogen.
Sterne suchen nachts Karfreitagskind
Deinen Stirnenbogen.

Georg Trakl

Theresa Lola: In Search of Equilibrium

Theresa Lola’s debut poetry collection In Search of Equilibrium is an extraordinary, and exacting study of death and grieving. Where the algorithms of the body and the memory fail, Lola finds the words that will piece together the binary code of family and restart the recovery program. In doing so, these unflinching poems work towards the hard-wired truths of life itself – finding hope in survival, lines of rescue in faith, a stubborn equilibrium in the equations of loss and renewal.

“You can call me arrogant, call me black Marilyn,
come celebrate with me,
I am so beautiful death can’t take its eyes off me.”

Theresa Lola’s debut poetry collection In Search of Equilibrium is an extraordinary and exacting study of death and grieving.

Where the algorithms of the body and the memory fail, Lola finds the words that will piece together the binary code of family and restart the recovery program.

In doing so, these unflinching poems work towards the hard-wired truths of life itself – finding hope in survival, lines of rescue in faith, a stubborn equilibrium in the equations of loss and renewal.

Theresa Lola is a British Nigerian Poet, born 1994. She was joint-winner of the 2018 Brunel International African Poetry Prize and was shortlisted for the 2017 Bridport Poetry Prize. In 2018 she was invited by the Mayor of London’s Office to read at Parliament Square alongside Sadiq Khan and actress Helen McCory at the unveiling of Millicent Fawcett’s statue. She has appeared on BBC Radio 4 Woman’s Hour, and ASOS Magazine with Octavia Collective among others. She is an alumni of the Barbican Young Poets Programme.

Scott Walker and the Song of the One-All-Alone by Scott Wilson

Scott Walker and the Song of the One-All-Alone offers, in detailed interpretative commentaries of his best songs, a sustained assessment of the work and career of Scott Walker, one of the most significant and perplexing artists of the late 20th and 21st century.

For Brian Eno, Walker was not only a great composer and a superlative lyricist but also a significant contemporary poet. Marc Almond goes further, ‘an absolute musical genius, existential and intellectual and a star right from the days of The Walker Brothers’. As Almond suggests, Walker’s work is marked by a continual engagement with existentialist philosophy informing his approach to art, politics and life. In particular, the device of the solitary figure or ‘one-all-alone’ evoked in his songs provides the basis for his lyrical exploration of the singularity of existence – in all its darkness as well as light.

Through following his own path, Walker arrived at a unique sound according to his own method that produced a genuinely new form of song. Looking closely at these songs, this book also considers the wider political implications of his approach in its rejection of external authorities and common or consensual ideals.

Scott Wilson is Professor of Media and Psychoanalysis at Kingston University, London, UK. He is the author of Stop Making Sense: Music from the Perspective of the Real (Karnac, 2015) and the editor of Melancology: Black Metal Theory and Ecology (Zone Books, 2014).

Susanna Inglada wint De Scheffer Prijs 2019

De Scheffer 2019 is gewonnen door kunstenaar Susanna Inglada (Spanje, 1983). De Scheffer is een tweejaarlijkse aanmoedigingsprijs van de Vereniging Dordrechts Museum (VDM) voor jonge beeldend kunstenaars. De prijs bestaat uit de aankoop van een werk en een expositie in het Dordrechts Museum.

Susanna Inglada wist de jury te overtuigen met haar zeggingskracht, vernieuwingsdrang en de sociale en politieke relevantie van haar werk. Haar werk is vanaf 16 november te bewonderen in het Dordrechts Museum.

De Schefferprijs wordt mogelijk gemaakt door het Schefferfonds dat dankzij legaten van de kunstenaar Ary Scheffer (Dordrecht 1795 – Argenteuil 1858) en zijn familie kon worden opgericht. De Vereniging Dordrechts Museum geeft in­vulling aan hun wens om jonge talentvol­le kunstenaars te ondersteunen. De prijs werd eerder toegekend aan Frank Ammerlaan (2013), Joost Krijnen (2015) en in 2017 aan Raquel van Haver.

Susanna Inglada maakt expressieve tekeningen van mensen die in een intense, soms zelfs gewelddadige interactie met elkaar verwikkeld zijn. Geïnspireerd door aspecten van de Spaanse geschiedenis, creëert Inglada theatrale ‘scenes’ waarin bovendien verschillende verwijzingen naar de schilderkunst te vinden zijn.

Inglada volgde een theateropleiding in Barcelona voor ze zich toelegde op de beeldende kunst en studies volgde aan de universiteit van Barcelona, het Frank Mohr Instituut in Groningen en het HISK in Gent.

‘Inglada’s werk getuigt van een onderzoekende geest en is gebaseerd op een dramatische verteltraditie. Haar werk refereert aan een verleden dat nog altijd actueel is en waarin machtsverhoudingen centraal staan’ aldus het juryrapport. De jury bestond deze editie uit Margriet Schavemaker, artistiek directeur Amsterdam Museum, Judith Spijksma conservator moderne en hedendaagse kunst Dordrechts Museum, Ton Kraayeveld, beeldend kunstenaar en Bea de Visser, beeldend kunstenaar.

Solotentoonstelling Susanna Inglada: Onder de titel De Scheffer 2019 is van 16 november tot 8 maart 2020 een solotentoonstelling van Susanna Inglada te zien. Deze expositie toont werk wat niet eerder in Nederland te zien was. Daarnaast is er nieuw werk te bezichtigen waarin de kunstenaar ingaat op de rol van de vrouw in de schilderkunst.

Oliver Sacks: Everything in Its Place. First Loves and Last Tales

From the best-selling author of Gratitude and On the Move, a final volume of essays that showcase Sacks’s broad range of interests–from his passion for ferns, swimming, and horsetails, to his final case histories exploring schizophrenia, dementia, and Alzheimer’s.

Oliver Sacks, scientist and storyteller, is beloved by readers for his neurological case histories and his fascination and familiarity with human behavior at its most unexpected and unfamiliar. Everything in Its Place is a celebration of Sacks’s myriad interests, told with his characteristic compassion and erudition, and in his luminous prose.

Dr. Oliver Sacks (1933 – 2015) spent more than fifty years working as a neurologist and writing books about the neurological predicaments and conditions of his patients, including The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat, Musicophilia, and Hallucinations. The New York Times referred to him as “the poet laureate of medicine,” and over the years he received many awards, including honors from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Science Foundation, the American Academy of Arts and Letters, the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, and the Royal College of Physicians. His memoir On the Move was published shortly before his death in August 2015.

Karel van de Woestijne: O Blik vol Dood en Sterren (Gedicht)

 

O Blik vol Dood en Sterren

o Blik vol dood en sterren,
o hart vol licht en leed.
De dag is spijtig verre;
de nacht is hel en wreed.

Mijn mond vol wondre smaken
die géne vrucht verzaadt.
Niemand, o hunkrend waken,
die langs mijn venster gaat…

Wij zullen nimmer wezen
dan Godes angst’ge wezen.
– God, laat ons waan en schijn
dat we Uwe wezen zijn.
