14 International Younger Poets, edited and with an introduction by Philip Nikolayev

14 International Younger Poets, edited and with an introduction by Philip Nikolayev, features verse by brilliant poets aged under 35 from India and the United States, with two of the participants originally hailing from Eastern Europe.

These remarkable young men and women, who first met each other in a virtual poetry recital, have quickly formed an active poetic community held together by aesthetic affinities, like values, and camaraderie. Their styles and ideas exhibit a crosspollinating diversity, and their spirit is indomitably humanist.

The poets question both themselves and the world, constantly negotiating their human, moral, and literary standing in it. Welcome to fourteen captivating quests for poetic excellence!

Avinab Datta-Areng (India), Raquel Balboni (USA), Justin Burnett (USA), Blake Campbell (USA), Sumit Chaudhary (India), Zainab Ummer Farook (India), Emily Grochowski (Poland & USA), Chandramohan S. (India), Susmit Panda (India), Paul Rowe (USA), Shruti Krishna Sareen (India), Andreea Iulia Scridon (Romania & UK), Kamayani Sharma (India), Sam Wronoski (USA).

Friedrich Nietzsche: Ecce homo

 

 

Ecce homo

Ja! Ich weiß, woher ich stamme!
Ungesättigt gleich der Flamme
Glühe und verzehr′ ich mich.
Licht wird alles, was ich fasse,
Kohle alles, was ich lasse:
Flamme bin ich sicherlich.

50 Things Kate Bush Taught Me About the Multiverse by Karyna McGlynn

This is a book of tragicomic gurlesque word-witchery inspired by the Kate Bush cosmos.

Campily glamorous, darkly funny, obsessively ekphrastic, boozily baroque, psychedelically girly & musically ecstatic, 50 Things Kate Bush Taught Me About the Multiverse dazzles as Karyna McGlynn’s third collection of poems.

Karyna McGlynn is a writer, professor & collagist living in Memphis. She is the author of I Have to Go Back to 1994 and Kill a Girl (Sarabande 2009) and Hothouse (Sarabande 2017), which was a New York Times Editor’s Choice.

Karyna holds an MFA in Poetry from the University of Michigan, and a PhD in Creative Writing & English Literature from the University of Houston. Recent honors include the Diane Middlebrook Poetry Fellowship at the University of Wisconsin, a visiting professorship at Oberlin College, the Rumi Prize for Poetry selected by Cate Marvin, and the Florida Review Editors’ Award in Fiction.

A Ghost in the Throat by Doireann Ní Ghríofa

“When we first met, I was a child, and she had been dead for centuries.”

On discovering her murdered husband’s body, an eighteenth-century Irish noblewoman drinks handfuls of his blood and composes an extraordinary lament. Eibhlín Dubh Ní Chonaill’s poem travels through the centuries, finding its way to a new mother who has narrowly avoided her own fatal tragedy. When she realizes that the literature dedicated to the poem reduces Eibhlín Dubh’s life to flimsy sketches, she wants more: the details of the poet’s girlhood and old age; her unique rages, joys, sorrows, and desires; the shape of her days and site of her final place of rest.

What follows is an adventure in which Doireann Ní Ghríofa sets out to discover Eibhlín Dubh’s erased life—and in doing so, discovers her own.

Moving fluidly between past and present, quest and elegy, poetry and those who make it, A Ghost in the Throat is a shapeshifting book: a record of literary obsession; a narrative about the erasure of a people, of a language, of women; a meditation on motherhood and on translation; and an unforgettable story about finding your voice by freeing another’s.

Doireann Ní Ghríofa is a poet and essayist. ‘A Ghost in the Throat’ was awarded the James Tait Black Prize for Biography and was voted Book of the Year at the Irish Book Awards; it has been described as “powerful” (New York Times), “captivatingly original”​​ (The Guardian) and a “masterpiece” (Sunday Business Post). Doireann is also author of six critically-acclaimed books of poetry, each a deepening exploration of birth, death, desire, and domesticity. Awards for her writing include a Lannan Literary Fellowship (USA), the Ostana Prize (Italy), a Seamus Heaney Fellowship (Queen’s University), and the Rooney Prize for Irish Literature, among others.

Stedelijk Museum Breda – Tentoonstelling Pieter Laurens Mol: Nachtvlucht. Een ode aan de duisternis

Speels, poëtisch en gelaagd. Zo valt het oeuvre te omschrijven van de in Breda geboren kunstenaar Pieter Laurens Mol. De tentoonstelling Nachtvlucht laat een selectie van zijn werk zien vanaf 1965 tot nu.

Voor het eerst in 30 jaar is zo’n groot aantal werken van deze internationaal gerenommeerd kunstenaar tegelijkertijd in één tentoonstelling te zien. Het thema van de tentoonstelling Nachtvlucht is de kleur zwart en de uiteenlopende betekenissen van de duisternis.

Een zonsondergang geschilderd met explosieve ingrediënten als salpeter en zwavel. In het werk The Black Sun Sets komt de agressieve kant van het duister naar voren. Maar bij beeldend kunstenaar Pieter Laurens Mol (1946, Breda) staan de kleur zwart en het duister voor veel meer dan alleen vernietiging en dood.

Al sinds zijn jeugd is hij gefascineerd door de symbolische en de wetenschappelijke betekenissen van duisternis, zoals deze bijvoorbeeld terugkomen in de melancholie of astronomie. Zwarte gaten koppelt hij aan de zwaarmoedige lading van de Spaanse woorden confusión en pesimismo. De ‘o’s’ op de teksttekening Studie Voor Zwarte Gaten zijn uitgesneden. De zwaartekracht van de begrippen is zó groot dat de ‘o’s in een zwart gat weggezogen worden. Het werk toont de uitgesproken poëtische en lyrische kant van Mols kunst.

Nachtvlucht is ingedeeld in zes thematische ensembles met namen als Nachtbraker, Hellevaart en Stille Smart. In de tentoonstelling word je meegenomen in zowel de destructie als de schoonheid van het duister. Het laatste ensemble, getiteld Geboorte van de Kleur, gaat over de hergeboorte die op het donker volgt.

Voor het werk The Total Amount vult Mol tientallen bakjes met pure pigmenten: ‘Om je ogen te planten in dit zuivere poeder uit de natuur voelt als een omarming, een prachtig intieme en intense ervaring.’ Hoog boven de kleurenbakjes hangt een fotonegatief van de kunstenaar zelf aan de muur. Hulpeloos bungelend aan een kraanwerker kan de eenzame schilder zo in één blik al het prachtige materiaal overzien dat tot zijn beschikking staat. Het idee dat hij schoonheid geboren kan laten worden zodra hij er mee aan de slag gaat vormt een hoopvolle gedachte.

Voor Mol zelf is het een tekenend werk uit de tentoonstelling. Hij onderzoekt op welke wijze de mens onderdeel is van een groter geheel en hoe hij zich daartoe kan verhouden.

Naast astronomie laat Mol zich inspireren door alchemie, natuurwetenschappen, mythologie, vaderlandse geschiedenis en oude kunst. Hierover zegt hij: ‘Een oud Egyptisch beeld kan dezelfde emotie oproepen als een stuk dat enkele minuten geleden is gemaakt. De enige echte tijd is het nu en ik breng er dingen uit het verleden en de toekomst naartoe.’

Net zo veelzijdig als zijn bronnen zijn de vormen waarin hij zich uitdrukt. Dat kunnen installaties, sculpturen of objecten zijn. Maar ook fotowerken, schilderijen, tekeningen en grafiek behoren tot de soms nooit eerder tentoongestelde werken.

Mol start zijn carrière in zijn geboorteplaats Breda. Van daaruit groeit hij uit tot een van de meest vooraanstaande kunstenaars van zijn generatie. Als een van de weinigen van zijn leeftijdsgenoten maakt hij de stap naar het buitenland.

De afgelopen vijftig jaar is zijn werk tentoongesteld bij toonaangevende instellingen wereldwijd, zoals het Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven, de Kunsthalle Basel, Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève, Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlijn, Contemporary Arts Museum Houston, Museum of Modern Art in New York en Heide Museum of Modern Art in Melbourne. Daarnaast is Mols werk opgenomen in diverse publieke- en privécollecties.

Voor Mol zijn de geschiedenis van Noord-Brabant en kunstenaars afkomstig uit deze regio een bron van inspiratie. De stad is, zeker in de beginperiode van zijn kunstenaarschap, een inspiratiebron.

Tijdens de tentoonstellingsperiode van Nachtvlucht wordt deze verbinding met de stad benadrukt. Zo wordt in de Grote Kerk Breda werk van hem getoond waarin de kerk een prominente rol heeft. Gelijktijdig met Nachtvlucht is er een tentoonstelling in de stad te bezoeken die in samenwerking met Stichting KOP ontwikkeld is en waarvoor vier jonge kunstenaars zijn uitgenodigd nieuw werk te maken voor de publieke ruimte dat geïnspireerd is op het oeuvre van Mol en de thematiek van Nachtvlucht.

Friedrich Nietzsche: An Goethe

 

An Goethe

Das Unvergängliche
Ist nur dein Gleichnis!
Gott der Verfängliche
Ist Dichter-Erschleichnis…

Welt-Rad, das rollende,
Streift Ziel auf Ziel:
Not – nennt′ s der Grollende,
Der Narr nennt′ s – Spiel…

Welt-Spiel, das herrische,
Mischt Sein und Schein: –
Das Ewig-Närrische
Mischt uns – hinein!…

Nanni Balestrini & Primo Moroni: The Golden Horde. Revolutionary Italy, 1960–1977

The Golden Horde is a definitive work on the Italian revolutionary movements of the 1960s and ’70s.

An anthology of texts and fragments woven together with an original commentary, the volume widens our understanding of the full complexity and richness of this period of radical thought and practice.

The book covers the generational turbulence of Italy’s postwar period, the transformations of Italian capitalism, the new analyses by worker-focused intellectuals, the student movement of 1968, the Hot Autumn of 1969, the extra-parliamentary groups of the early 1970s, the Red Brigades, the formation of a radical women’s movement, the development of Autonomia, and the build-up to the watershed moment of the spontaneous political movement of 1977.

Far from being merely a handbook of political history, The Golden Horde also sheds light on two decades of Italian culture, including the newspapers, songs, journals, festivals, comics, and philosophy that these movements produced.

The book features writings by Sergio Bologna, Umberto Eco, Elvio Fachinelli, Lea Melandri, Danilo Montaldi, Toni Negri, Raniero Panzieri, Franco Piperno, Rossana Rossanda, Paolo Virno, and others, as well as an in-depth introduction by translator Richard Braude outlining the work’s composition and development.

Nanni Balestrini (1935–2019) was an Italian poet, experimental writer, visual artist and founding member of both the avant-garde Gruppo ’63 and the revolutionary organization Potere Operio.

Primo Moroni (1936–1998) was an Italian writer, activist and archivist. Founder of the Calusca bookshop in Milan, for decades he was a point of reference for radical movements and subcultures across Italy.

Richard Braude lives in Palermo, Italy. His translations include works by Nanni Balestrini, Mariarosa Dalla Costa, Antonio Negri and Rossana Rossanda.

Herta Müller: Father’s on the Phone with the Flies. A Selection

To create the poems in this collection, Nobel Prize–winner Herta Müller cut up countless newspapers and magazines in search of striking phrases, words, or even fragments of words, which she then arranged in a the form of a collage.

Father’s on the Phone with the Flies presents 73 of Müller’s collage poems for the first time in English translation, alongside full-colour reproductions of the originals.

Müller takes full advantage of the collage form, generating poems rich in wordplay, ambiguity and startling, surreal metaphors—the disruption and dislocation at their core rendered visible through stark contrasts in colour, font and type size.

Liberating words from conformity and coercion, Müller renders them fresh and invests them forcefully with personal experience.

Herta Müller was born in a German-speaking community in western Romania in 1953. She published her first collection of short stories in 1982. In 1987, she left Romania for West Berlin, where she continued to write and publish. She has been awarded numerous prizes, including the 2009 Nobel Prize for Literature.

Friedrich Nietzsche: Dem unbekannten Gott

 

 

Dem unbekannten Gott

Noch einmal, eh ich weiterziehe
Und meine Blicke vorwärts sende,
Heb’ ich vereinsamt meine Hände
Zu dir empor, zu dem ich fliehe,
Dem ich in tiefster Herzenstiefe
Altäre feierlich geweiht,
Daß allezeit
Mich deine Stimme wieder riefe.

Darauf erglüht tiefeingeschrieben
Das Wort: dem unbekannten Gotte.
Sein bin ich, ob ich in der Frevler Rotte
Auch bis zur Stunde bin geblieben:
Sein bin ich – und ich fühl’ die Schlingen,
Die mich im Kampf darniederziehn
Und, mag ich fliehn,
Mich doch zu seinem Dienste zwingen.

Ich will dich kennen, Unbekannter,
Du tief in meine Seele Greifender,
Mein Leben wie ein Sturm Durchschweifender,
Du Unfaßbarer, mir Verwandter!
Ich will dich kennen, selbst dir dienen.

Friederike Mayröcker: Requiem for Ernst Jandl

Austrian poet and playwright Ernst Jandl died in 2000, leaving behind his partner, poet Friederike Mayröcker—and bringing to an end a half century of shared life, and shared literary work. Mayröcker immediately began attempting to come to terms with his death in the way that poets struggling with loss have done for millennia: by writing.

Requiem for Ernst Jandl is the powerfully moving outcome.

In this quiet but passionate lament that grows into a song of enthralling intensity, Mayröcker recalls memories and shared experiences, and—with the sudden, piercing perception of regrets that often accompany grief—reads Jandl’s works in a new light.

Alarmed by a sudden, existential emptiness, she reflects on the future, and the possibility of going on with her life and work in the absence of the person who, as we see in this elegy, was a constant conversational and creative partner.

Friederike Mayröcker (1924–2021) was one of the most important Austrian poets of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. She published over eighty works, including poetry, prose, radio plays and children’s books. Her work has been honoured with many prizes, including the Georg Büchner Prize and the Peter Huchel Prize. She lived in Vienna.

Red, novel by Felicity McLean

From award-winning writer and journalist Felicity McLean comes Red, a spirited and striking contemporary retelling of the Ned Kelly story

It’s the early 1990s and Ruby ‘Red’ McCoy dreams about one day leaving her weatherboard house on the Central Coast of New South Wales, where her best friend, Stevie, is loose with the truth, and her dad, Sid, is always on the wrong side of the law.

But wild, whip-smart Red can’t stay out of trouble to save her life, and Sid’s latest hustle is more harebrained than usual.

Meanwhile, Sergeant Trevor Healy seems to have a vendetta against every generation of the McCoys.

Told in Ruby’s vivid, inimitable voice, Red is part True Grit, part Blue Murder. It’s a story of police persecution. Of dodgy deals and even dodgier cars.

And of a family history that refuses to stay in the past. A sharp, provocative and savagely funny novel.

Felicity McLean’s debut novel, The Van Apfel Girls are Gone, has been published in more than half a dozen countries. It was a Barnes & Noble ‘Discover Great New Writers’ pick in the US, and was shortlisted for the Indie Book Awards, and longlisted for the UK’s Dagger Awards, and the Davitt. Her book, Body Lengths, co-written with Olympian Leisel Jones, was Apple Books ‘Best Biography of 2015’ and won the 2016 Australian Book Industry Awards ‘Reader’s Choice’ for Small Publisher Adult Book of the Year.

The Jealousy Man and Other Stories by Jo Nesbo

A veritable crime lover’s delight from a true master of mystery and suspense. Experience the #1 New York Times best-selling author as never before in this dark and thrilling short story collection that takes us on a journey of twisted minds and vengeful hearts.

Jo Nesbø is known the world over as a consummate mystery/thriller writer. Famed for his deft characterization, hair-raising suspense and shocking twists, Nesbø’s dexterity with the dark corners of the human heart is on full display in these inventive and enthralling stories.

A detective with a nose for jealousy is on the trail of a man suspected of murdering his twin; a bereaved father must decide whether vengeance has a place in the new world order after a pandemic brings about the collapse of society; a garbage man fresh off a bender tries to piece together what happened the night before; a hired assassin matches wits against his greatest adversary in a dangerous game for survival; and an instantly electric connection between passengers on a flight to London may spell romance, or something more sinister.

With Nesbø’s characteristic gift for outstanding atmosphere and gut-wrenching revelations, The Jealousy Man confirms that he is at the peak of his abilities.

Jo Nesbo is one of the world’s bestselling crime writers, with The Leopard, Phantom, Police, The Son and his latest Harry Hole novel, The Thirst, all topping the Sunday Times bestseller charts. He’s an international number one bestseller and his books are published in 50 languages, selling over 33 million copies around the world. Before becoming a crime writer, Nesbo played football for Norway’s premier league team Molde, but his dream of playing professionally for Spurs was dashed when he tore ligaments in his knee at the age of eighteen. After three years military service he attended business school and formed the band Di derre (‘Them There’). They topped the charts in Norway, but Nesbo continued working as a financial analyst, crunching numbers during the day and gigging at night. When commissioned by a publisher to write a memoir about life on the road with his band, he instead came up with the plot for his first Harry Hole crime novel, The Bat.
