K. Schippers: Nu je het zegt

‘De taal is m’n zuurstof, als ik iets beschrijf, ben ik er.’

Dat denkt K. Schippers terwijl hij in Londen een adres zoekt. Hij vergist zich, loopt in een verkeerd deel van de stad, waar een straat toevallig dezelfde naam heeft. Een ondertitelaarster, een schilder uit Vietnam en andere voorbijgangers proberen hem te helpen zoeken. Komt hij samen met hen in het leven van de taal terecht?

In een wereld vol motto’s en letterspelen leiden ze hem naar iets heel anders dan de gezochte straat. Vlak bij zee, aan de Nederlandse kust, ontdekt hij de bronnen van de taal. Het is alsof ‘de woorden die ons op de laatste paar bladzijden ter wille zijn geweest, niet anders konden dan ons hierheen brengen’. Bij K. Schippers raakt de taal zelf betoverd – met talrijke foto’s en tekeningen als bewijs.

K. Schippers (Amsterdam, 1936) is schrijver, dichter, essayist en kunstcriticus. Hij heeft een omvangrijk oeuvre op zijn naam staan, dat bestaat uit romans, poëzie, essays, verhalen & beschouwingen, en een enkel kinderboek. Al vroeg werd hij bekend door het literaire tijdschrift Barbarber, dat hij in 1958 samen met J. Bernlef en G. Brands oprichtte. Hij introduceerde de readymade als poëzievorm. Van het cultureel tijdschrift Hollands Diep, dat van 1975 tot 1977 bestond, was hij een van de oprichters en eerste redacteuren. Zijn werk is veel gelauwerd. Voor zijn poëzie ontving hij in 1996 de P.C. Hooftprijs. Een jaar later kreeg hij de Pierre Bayle-Prijs voor zijn kunstkritieken. Zijn roman Poeder en wind (1996) werd genomineerd voor de Generale Bank Literatuurprijs; de roman Waar was je nou (2005) werd bekroond met de Libris Literatuur Prijs en groeide uit tot een bestseller. Hij is de schrijver van Buiten beeld, het Poëziegeschenk van de Poëzieweek 2014.

Nieuwe dichtbundel Pauk Bezembinder: Parkzicht

In Parkzicht brengt Paul Bezembinder een tragische liefdesgeschiedenis.

Met zijn inmiddels gevestigde combinatie van klassieke poëzie, pastiche en smartlap laveert hij moeiteloos langs de Scylla van de zoetsappigheid en de Charybdis van de chaos. Het resulteert in beelden die beklijven, die klemmen op de borst, gloeien in het hart en branden in de ziel.

Waarheid of verbeelding? Ongemakkelijk blijft het. U zult na het lezen van deze bundel nooit meer dezelfde zijn.

Gedichten, uitg. Pittige Pixels, Amsterdam (2018).
Kwatrijnen, uitg. Art Brut Digital Editions, Tilburg (2018).

Red Comet. The Short Life and Blazing Art of Sylvia Plath by Heather Clark

The highly anticipated new biography of Sylvia Plath that focuses on her remarkable literary and intellectual achievements, while restoring the woman behind the long-held myths about her life and art.

With a wealth of never-before-accessed materials–including unpublished letters and manuscripts; court, police, and psychiatric records; and new interviews–Heather Clark brings to life the brilliant daughter of Wellesley, Massachusetts.

Sylvia Plath had poetic ambition from a very young age and was an accomplished, published writer of poems and stories even before she became a star English student at Smith College in the early 1950s. Determined not to read Plath’s work as if her every act, from childhood on, was a harbinger of her tragic fate, Clark here evokes a culture in transition, in the shadow of the atom bomb and the Holocaust, as she explores Plath’s world: her early relationships and determination not to become a conventional woman and wife; her conflicted ties to her well-meaning, widowed mother; her troubles at the hands of an unenlightened mental-health industry; her Cambridge years and thunderclap meeting with Ted Hughes, a marriage of true minds that would change the course of poetry in English; and much more.

Clark’s clear-eyed sympathy for Hughes, his lover Assia Wevill, and the other demonized players in the arena of Plath’s suicide promotes a deeper understanding of her final days, with their outpouring of first-rate poems. Along with illuminating readings of the poems themselves, Clark’s meticulous, compassionate research brings us closer than ever to the spirited woman and visionary artist who blazed a trail that still lights the way for women poets the world over.

Heather Clark earned her bachelor’s degree in English Literature from Harvard University and her doctorate in English from Oxford University. Her awards include a National Endowment for the Humanities Public Scholar Fellowship; a Leon Levy Biography Fellowship at the City University of New York; and a Visiting U.S. Fellowship at the Eccles Centre for American Studies, British Library. A former Visiting Scholar at the Oxford Centre for Life-Writing, she is the author of The Grief of Influence: Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes and The Ulster Renaissance: Poetry in Belfast 1962-1972. Her work has appeared in publications including Harvard Review and The Times Literary Supplement, and she recently served as a consultant for the BBC documentary Sylvia Plath: Life Inside the Bell Jar. She divides her time between Chappaqua, New York, and Yorkshire, England, where she is Professor of Contemporary Poetry at the University of Huddersfield.
