Ellen Deckwitz: Dit gaat niet over grasmaaien

Gedichten zijn overal: op straat, op gebouwen, in liedjes en films. En ze raken ons en blijven ons soms een leven lang bij, als een troost tijdens duistere nachten of een woordgrapje dat een glimlach oproept.

Toch deinzen mensen achteruit als ze het woord poëzie horen: te moeilijk, niks voor mij. Maar het is wél iets voor jou. Ellen Deckwitz legt uit waarom, biedt een helpende hand en neemt je mee langs de vele ontroerende, dramatische, ronduit hilarische en verbeeldingsrijke paden die de poëzie rijk is.

Poëzie voor dummy’s. Een heerlijk boek dat niet alleen over lezen, maar ook over het leven gaat.

Ellen Deckwitz (1982) is een van de belangrijkste hedendaagse jonge dichters. Ze was Nederlands Kampioen Poetry Slam in 2009 en won met De steen vreest mijde C. Buddingh’-prijs voor het beste poëziedebuut. Ze is een geziene gast op festivals als Lowlands, de Nacht van de Poëzie en Saint Amour, ze draagt haar werk regelmatig voor op televisie en schrijft gedichten over het nieuws voor de NRC.

Nick J. Swarth publiceert roman: ‘1980 – De plasserparadox’

Na een aantal dichtbundels verscheen onlangs bij Uitgeverij IJzer (Utrecht) de debuutroman, van Nick J. Swarth: ‘1980 – De plasserparadox’.

Het jaar is 1980, het decor een troosteloze provinciestad, waarin werkeloosheid, armoe en woningnood hoogtij vieren. Het failliet van de textielnijverheid komt met industriële ruïnes en kaalslag in het hart van de stad. Dit bleke toneel biedt in zijn grimmigheid een ideale voedingsbodem voor de jeugdige dadendrang van de no-future generatie.

In ‘1980 – De plasserparadox’ schetst de tijdgeest in verbeten, zelden geziene grauwtinten de staat van de stad X-Burg (Tilburg). Emiel de B. dook onder in de nacht. Dr. Pink bedrijft graffiti. Ratel valt op zijn beste vriend. Liefde en politieke daadkracht binden Chloë en Loumi. Yani is een kiene travestiet.

In caleidoscopische scenes toont de roman de strapatsen van een generatie die in het kielzog van de emancipatie pal staat voor haar geaardheid. Het is de tijd van activisme, kraken en nieuwe muziek, waarin het persoonlijke politiek is en de hoop op een betere wereld groot. Maar dat is gerekend buiten de stad.

Over de auteur: Nick J. Swarth is als maker actief in diverse disciplines, maar het uitgangspunt is altijd tekst. ‘Shabby Art That Falls Apart’ is de verzamelnaam voor het beeldend werk, dat bestaat uit tekeningen en assemblages.

Swarth is ook de stem van het noise rock trio Betonfraktion, dat drie platen uitbracht. In 2016 verscheen ‘I Changed My Sex’.

Van 2005-2007 was Swarth stadsdichter van Tilburg. Poëzie in het publieke domein krijgt vorm in het project ‘On-site poetry’ (i.s.m. Sander Neijnens).

Meest recente publicaties: ‘Mijn onsterfelijke lever’ (gedichten); ‘¡Mondo Manga!’ (gedichten); “Horror Vacui | een docudrama in 14 staties’, verslag van een schandaal verwekkend kunstproject (i.s.m. Jeroen de Leijer).

Sontag: Her Life and Work by Benjamin Moser

No writer is as emblematic of the American twentieth century as Susan Sontag. Mythologized and misunderstood, lauded and loathed, a girl from the suburbs who became a proud symbol of cosmopolitanism, Sontag left a legacy of writing on art and politics, feminism and homosexuality, celebrity and style, medicine and drugs, radicalism and Fascism and Freudianism and Communism and Americanism, that forms an indispensable key to modern culture. No writer negotiated as many worlds; no serious writer had as many glamorous lovers.

Sontag tells these stories and examines the work upon which her reputation was based. It explores the agonizing insecurity behind the formidable public face: the broken relationships, the struggles with her sexuality, that animated—and undermined—her writing.

And it shows her attempts to respond to the cruelties and absurdities of a country that had lost its way, and her conviction that fidelity to high culture was an activism of its own.

Utilizing hundreds of interviews conducted from Maui to Stockholm and from London to Sarajevo—and featuring nearly one hundred images—Sontag is the first book based on the writer’s restricted archives, and on access to many people who have never before spoken about Sontag, including Annie Leibovitz.

It is a definitive portrait—a great American novel in the form of a biography.

About Benjamin Moser: Benjamin Moser was born in Houston. He is the author of Why This World: A Biography of Clarice Lispector, a finalist for the National Book Critics’ Circle Award and a New York Times Notable Book of 2009. For his work bringing Clarice Lispector to international prominence, he received Brazil’s first State Prize for Cultural Diplomacy. He has published translations from French, Spanish, Portuguese, and Dutch. He is a former books columnist for Harper’s Magazine and The New York Times Book Review and has written for The New Yorker, Conde Nast Traveler, and The New York Review of Books.

Forever Words. The Unknown Poems by Johnny Cash

These never-before-published poems by Johnny Cash make the perfect gifts for music lovers and fans alike.

Edited and introduced by Pulitzer Prize-winning poet Paul Muldoon with a foreword by John Carter Cash, this poetry collection is illustrated with facsimile reproductions of Cash’s own handwritten pages. Now an album with music by Rosanne Cash, Brad Paisley, Willie Nelson, Kacey Musgraves, Elvis Costello, and more.

Since his first recordings in 1955, Johnny Cash has been an icon in the music world. In this collection of poems and song lyrics that have never been published before, we see the world through his eyes and view his reflection on his own interior reality, his frailties and his strengths alike.

In his hallmark voice, he pens verses about love, pain, freedom, and mortality, and expresses insights on culture, his family, his fame, even Christmas. Forever Words confirms Johnny Cash as a brilliant and singular American literary figure. His music is a part of our collective history, and here the depth of his artistry and talent become even more evident.

Noor Unnahar: yesterday i was the moon (poetry)

Noor Unnahar is a young female voice with power and depth. The Pakistani poet’s moving, personal work collects and makes sense of the phases of collapsing and rebuilding one’s self on the treacherous modern path from teenager to adult.

Tinged with the heartbreak of a broken home and the complexity of a rich cultural background, yesterday i was the moon stands out from the Insta-poetry crowd as a collection worth keeping.

Noor Unnahar is a modern-day artist and poet whose work combines hand-written text, tactile collage, and photography to illuminate themes of hope, home, self-love, culture, acceptance, and survival.

yesterday i was the moon centers around themes of love and emotional loss, the catharsis of creating art, and the struggle to find one’s voice. Noor’s poetry ranges from succinct universal truths to flowery prose exploring her heritage, what it means to find a physical and emotional home, and the intimate and painful dance of self-discovery. Her poetry and art has already inspired thousands of fans on Instagram to engage with her words through visual journal entries and posts of their own, and her fan base only continues to grow.

Op 5 november verschijnt: Mijn lieve gunsteling, de nieuwe roman van Marieke Lucas Rijneveld

Mijn lieve gunsteling, de nieuwe roman van Marieke Lucas Rijneveld, verschijnt op 5 november.

Het is het verhaal van de veearts en zijn ‘uitverkorene’, de dochter van een boer. Tijdens een hete zomer zoeken ze toenadering tot elkaar omdat ze willen ontsnappen aan de grilligheid en de leemten van het plattelandsleven en omdat ze willen ontkomen aan wat er in hen gezaaid is. Gedurende die zomer ontwikkelen ze een obsessieve fascinatie voor elkaar.

De beklemmende bekentenis Mijn lieve gunsteling is een hartverscheurend en tegelijk angstaanjagend verhaal over verlies, verboden liefde, eenzaamheid en identiteit. Het is daarmee een meer dan waardige opvolger van de debuutroman De avond is ongemak waarmee Marieke Lucas Rijneveld als eerste Nederlandse schrijver de International Booker Prize won.

Guillotine. Poems by Eduardo C. Corral

Guillotine traverses desert landscapes cut through by migrants, the grief of loss, betrayal’s lingering scars, the border itself—great distances in which violence and yearning find roots.

Through the voices of undocumented immigrants, border patrol agents, and scorned lovers, award-winning poet Eduardo C. Corral writes dramatic portraits of contradiction, survival, and a deeply human, relentless interiority. With extraordinary lyric imagination, these poems wonder about being unwanted or renounced. What do we do with unrequited love? Is it with or without it that we would waste away?

In the sequence “Testaments Scratched into a Water Station Barrel,” with Corral’s seamless integration of Spanish and English, poems curve around the surfaces upon which they are written, overlapping like graffiti left by those who may or may not have survived crossing the border. A harrowing second collection, Guillotine solidifies Corral’s place in the expanding ecosystem of American poetry.

The astonishing second collection by the author of Slow Lightning, winner of the Yale Younger Poets Prize

Eduardo C. Corral is the author of Slow Lightning, winner of the Yale Younger Poets Prize. He was a founding fellow of the CantoMundo Writers Conference, and recipient of a Whiting Award. He teaches at North Carolina State University.
