Cécile Coulon: Noir volcan. Poésie

En 2018 s’est produit un phénomène que personne n’avait vu venir et qui restera dans l’histoire de la poésie française : un recueil a rencontré à la fois un succès critique et public.

Cécile Coulon avait alors 27 ans, elle était connue comme romancière depuis déjà plusieurs années, et son premier recueil, Les Ronces, suscita un intérêt et un engouement dépassant de loin le cercle « habituel » des lecteurs de poésie.

Son second recueil, Noir volcan, est tout aussi éruptif, celui d’une poésie affranchie, libératrice, terrienne. Il fait partie d’un étonnant renouveau de la poésie constaté par les libraires dont Alexandre Bord : « Des poétesses comme Cécile Coulon et Rupi Kaur, dont les textes ont pu être lus au préalable sur les réseaux sociaux, attirent en librairie des lecteurs qui n’avaient jamais acheté un recueil de poésie. » Il est évident à la lire, que Cécile Coulon ne peut vivre sans poésie.

Cécile Coulon est née en 1990 à Clermont-Ferrand. En quelques années, elle a fait une ascension fulgurante. Elle a publié sept romans dont Trois saisons d’orage (Viviane Hamy), prix des Libraires, et Une bête au paradis (L’Iconoclaste), prix littéraire du Monde. Son premier recueil de poésie, Les Ronces (Le Castor Astral), a reçu le prestigieux prix Apollinaire.

Amy Woolard: Neck of the Woods

If two girls are two halves of a deep, lifelong friendship, what does one girl wholly become when the other is gone?

Amy Woolard‘s debut collection, Neck Of The Woods, sets this question as a hero-quest deep inside the mythos of the American South, wandering through childhood stories in which a girl alone must work to save herself.

These poems take on what happens when you wake up the morning after something happens, and find yourself in a different world, knowing there isn’t truly a way back home.

Part-elegy, part-survivor’s testimony, Neck Of The Woods maps a path divided into a before and an ever after.

Amy Woolard is a legal aid attorney working on civil rights policy and legislation in Virginia. Her first collection, Neck of the Woods, received the 2018 Alice James Award from Alice James Books. Her poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, Poetry, Boston Review, Ploughshares, and elsewhere, while her essays and reporting have been featured in publications such as Slate, The Guardian, and Virginia Quarterly Review. She has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Vermont Studio Center, and the Breadloaf Writers’ Conference. She lives in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Paul Celan: “Etwas ganz und gar Persönliches” – Briefe 1934-1970

Paul Celan, der meistgedeutete deutschsprachige Dichter nach 1945, ist auch der Autor eines eminenten Briefwerks.

Mit dieser Ausgabe wird es nun erstmals als eigenes Werk sichtbar: in 691 Briefen, davon 330 bisher unpubliziert, an 252 Adressaten. Wer sind die Adressaten? Es sind die Mitglieder der Familie, geliebte Frauen, befreundete Autoren, sehr junge und begeisterte Leser, Übersetzerkollegen, französische Philosophen ebenso wie deutsche Germanisten und die Mitarbeiter vieler Verlage. Aus alledem entsteht in chronologischer Folge über vier Jahrzehnte ein Leben aus Briefen.

In ihnen zeigt sich Celan als herausragender Korrespondenzpartner mit einer enormen stilistischen Bandbreite, ausgeprägt in seiner Fähigkeit, auch auf Unbekannte einzugehen. Die Briefe offenbaren eine Vielzahl bisher verborgener biografischer Fakten, ermöglichen eine Präzisierung seiner Poetologie und zeigen ihn zugleich als Menschen in seinem ganz gewöhnlichen Alltag.

Das Jahr 2020 steht ganz im Zeichen von Paul Celan: Am 20. April jährte sich sein Todestag zum fünfzigsten Mal, und am 23. November 2020 wäre einer der wichtigsten deutschsprachigen Dichter nach 1945 einhundert Jahre alt geworden.

Paul Celan wurde als Paul Antschel am 23. November 1920 als einziger Sohn deutschsprachiger, jüdischer Eltern im damals rumänischen Czernowitz geboren. Nach dem Abitur 1938 begann Celan ein Medizinstudium in Frankreich, kehrte jedoch ein Jahr später nach Rumänien zurück, um dort Romanistik zu studieren. 1942 wurden Paul Celans Eltern deportiert. Im selben Herbst starb sein Vater in einem Lager an Typhus, seine Mutter wurde erschossen. Von 1942 bis 1944 musste Celan in verschiedenen rumänischen Arbeitslagern Zwangsarbeit leisten.
Von 1945 bis 1947 arbeitete er als Lektor und Übersetzer in Bukarest, wo auch erste Gedichte von Celan erschienen. Im Juli 1948 zog er von Wien aus nach Paris, wo der Dichter bis zu seinem Tod lebte. Dort lernte Celan 1951 die Künstlerin Gisèle de Lestrange kennen, die er ein Jahr später heiratete. Ihr gemeinsamer Sohn Eric kam 1955 zur Welt. Im Frühjahr 1970 nahm sich Celan in der Seine das Leben. (Suhrkamp Verlag)

“Dieses aus- und eindrucksvolle Mosaik ist die große Leistung der Herausgeberin Barbara Wiedemann, die schon so viele Publikationen zu Paul Celan verantwortet hat.” – Martin Oehlen, Frankfurter Rundschau

Zaina Alsous, winner of the Norma Farber First Book Award

Announcing the 2020 Norma Farber Award winner, Zaina Alsous with A Theory of Birds (Poems)

Aina Alsous is the 2020 recipient of the Poetry Society of America’s Norma Farber Book Award for her book A Theory of Birds (University of Arkansas Press). The Norma Farber Book Award honors a first book of original poetry written by a living author.

The Judge was Matthew Shenoda. Matthew Shenoda’s Citation: In Zaina Alsous’ A Theory of Birds we are ushered into a re-calibration of the world, one intent on the eradication of that which has been oppressive and divisive. In these poems history unravels us in fragments, causing us to fold ourselves into a new definition of “self” and an unabashed rejection of our positions as “subjects.” The poems found here are an honest and open exploration of how we come into a sense of our own understanding in a postcolonial world. Alsous’ poems are driven by the asking, often posing sentient questions like “who translated kings and not birds?”; questions that cause us to think of redefinition. And while her poems are searing in their critiques of political, racial, and gendered domination, like all good artists she is poignant in her ability to implicate herself at every turn and help us break through the binaries we often use to define ourselves. Hers is an aesthetic of fragmentation as a collective piecing together. A Theory of Birds teaches us that the interior narratives, the often quiet things that make each of us whole, are the most essential.

Zaina Alsous is a prison abolitionist, a daughter of the Palestinian diaspora, and a movement worker in South Florida. Her poetry, reviews, and essays have been published in POETRY Magazine, The Kenyon Review, the New Inquiry, Adroit, and elsewhere. She edits for Scalawag Magazine, a publication dedicated to unsettling dominant narratives of the U.S. South. Her chapbook Lemon Effigies won the Rick Campbell Chapbook Prize and was published by Anhinga Press. Her first full-length collection A Theory of Birds won the Etel Adnan Poetry Prize, and was published by the University of Arkansas Press in the fall of 2019.

Every year the University of Arkansas Press, together with the Radius of Arab American Writers, awards the Etel Adnan Poetry Prize for a first or second book of poetry in English by a writer of Arab heritage. The series is edited by Hayan Charara and Fady Joudah and supported by the King Fahd Center for Middle East Studies at the University of Arkansas.

Margot Dijkgraaf: Zij namen het woord. Rebelse schrijfsters in de Franse letteren

In ‘Zij namen het woord’ schetst Margot Dijkgraaf de portretten van uitzonderlijke, schrijvende Franse vrouwen uit de 17e tot de 21e eeuw.

Ze schrijven, ze spreken, ze gaan de barricaden op, ze doorbreken taboes, ze verleggen grenzen. En ze bieden inspiratie – door hun boeken, hun denkbeelden, hun daden of hun karakter.

De vrouwen in dit boek heten Colette of Françoise Sagan, George Sand of Simone de Beauvoir, Madame de Staël of Maryse Condé.

De een is grondlegger van de Europese literatuur, de volgende vecht voor de positie van de vrouw als schrijfster, weer een ander richt haar pijlen op onrechtvaardigheid en ongelijkheid of eist voor de niet-westerse stem een plek op in de literatuur.

Allemaal zijn ze Franstalig, rebels, tegendraads. Schrijven is gevaarlijk.

85ste Boekenweek van zaterdag 7 t/m zondag 15 maart 2020

 

 Rebellen en dwarsdenkers

De 85ste Boekenweek staat in het teken van hen die ons voorstellingsvermogen vergroten: de rebellen en dwarsdenkers. Het lezen van boeken zet namelijk aan tot nadenken, zodat lezers begrip ontwikkelen voor anderen en minder vasthouden aan vooroordelen (bron: KVB Boekwerk, De impact van het boek). Van de dromerige dwarsdenker die veilig thuis afreist naar een andere wereld tot de rebel die zijn messcherpe pen als wapen gebruikt tegen de status quo. In de literatuur is er ruimte voor al die geluiden. Het lef van schrijvers om taboes te doorbreken en een steen in de vijver te gooien is van levensbelang voor onze samenleving. Daarom koesteren we de vrijheid die door schrijvers genomen wordt om tegen de stroom in te werken, om dwars en vervelend te zijn, onaangepast en onafhankelijk.

 

 Een greep uit rebelse boeken en dwarse schrijvers

De rebellen van de literatuur hebben altijd ons denken beïnvloed: stoere, onorthodoxe, eigengereide auteurs als Multatuli, Annie M.G. Schmidt, Willem Frederik Hermans, Astrid Roemer, Dimitri Verhulst en Charlotte Mutsaers hebben werelden geopend. Rebelse personages en dwarse karakters zoals Don Quichot, Madame Bovary, Tommy Wieringa’s Joe Speedboot, Esther Gerritsens Roxy en Hava uit Aafke Romeijns Concept M houden een spiegel voor en laten ons nadenken over wie wij zijn. Schrijvers als Jan Cremer, Connie Palmen, Anna Blaman en Jan Wolkers zoeken grenzen van de literatuur op en verleggen ze. Boeken kunnen weerstand oproepen, kunnen verboden worden en verbrand, maar de kracht van de woorden laat zich niet temmen. Nabokovs Lolita, Houellebecqs Onderworpen of Erasmus’ Lof der zotheid hebben onder vuur gelegen, maar zijn inmiddels onmiskenbare oriëntatiepunten in het literaire landschap. Om de steeds veranderende wereld om ons heen te begrijpen, hebben we dwarsdenkers en ordescheppers nodig. Renate Rubinstein en Anton de Kom hebben ons bewust gemaakt van onze oogkleppen. Ook door non-fictie prikkelen, stimuleren en scherpen we onze geest. Het maatschappelijk debat op de meest uiteenlopende onderwerpen wordt bepaald door dappere en dwarse denkers: Dick Swaab en Rosanne Hertzberger, Rutger Bregman en Joris Luyendijk, Anousha Nzume en Paul Scheffer.

B. Zwaal: zeesnede – gedichten 1984 – 2019

Zwaal is een dichter die met een grandioos taalvermogen de wereld toont in al haar facetten, niet alleen als natuurverschijnsel maar ook als erotische verschijning, als de zee, het water, de vrouw, de kleuren en geuren van alles wat tastbaar is.

Zijn werk, dat hij sinds 1984 in een rustige regelmaat heeft gepubliceerd, is nu verzameld in zeesnede, waarin ook is opgenomen de nog niet eerder gepubliceerde bundel averij grosse. Gedichten van enkele woorden, gedichten van niet meer dan twee regels, gedichten met lange regels die van overvloed van de pagina lijken te vallen. Gedichten waarin de hele wereld als nieuw wordt getoond.

B. Zwaal (Vlaardingen, 1944) was theatermaker en regisseur. In 1984 debuteerde hij met de dichtbundel fiere miniature. Daarna verschenen nog tien bundels, waarvan een drifter werd genomineerd voor de Ida Gerhardt Poëzieprijs en zouttong voor de VSB poëzieprijs.

Brandon Shimoda: The Grave on the Wall

The Grave on the Wall is a memoir and a book of mourning, a grandson’s attempt to reconcile his own uncontested citizenship with his grandfather’s lifelong struggle.

Award-winning poet Brandon Shimoda has crafted a lyrical portrait of his paternal grandfather, Midori Shimoda, whose life—child migrant, talented photographer, suspected enemy alien and spy, desert wanderer, American citizen—mirrors the arc of Japanese America in the twentieth century.

In a series of pilgrimages, Shimoda records the search to find his grandfather, and unfolds, in the process, a moving elegy on memory and forgetting.

“Shimoda brings his poetic lyricism to this moving and elegant memoir, the structure of which reflects the fragmentation of memories. . . . It is at once wistful and devastating to see Midori’s life come full circle . . . In between is a life with tragedy, love, and the horrors unleashed by the atomic bomb.”––Booklist

Sontag. Her Life and Work by Benjamin Moser

Susan Sontag

The definitive portrait

The definitive portrait of one of the American Century’s most towering intellectuals: her writing and her radical thought, her public activism and her hidden private face

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.

She was there when the Cuban Revolution began, and when the Berlin Wall came down; in Vietnam under American bombardment, in wartime Israel, in besieged Sarajevo. She was in New York when artists tried to resist the tug of money—and when many gave in. 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.

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. 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. A former books columnist for Harper’s Magazine and The New York Times Book Review, he has also written for The New Yorker, Conde Nast Traveler, and The New York Review of Books.

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.
