Saint 1001 Paperback by Daphne Gottlieb

For more than 30 years, S corresponds with her first love, J.

There is one story she does not tell: one about three men and an alley. She learns a new story: one in which she is unable to leave the two blocks surrounding her house, and unable to tell J exactly what happened to her. Isolated by trauma and depression, S finds a way back into her skin through the strangers she meets online for sex.

The retellings of her adventures titillate J, who urges her on to more encounters. As in the 1001 Nights, this is a story made of stories: S’s own stories are interrupted and overwritten by similar, culturally reified stories. S’s life becomes scenes from everything from The Graduate and The Story of O to the words of Charles Manson and the Bible.

What emerges in words, invocations and collage is a grasping at presence and absence in the age of the internet: to be read in real time is life, and the blank screen is death.

San Francisco-based Performance Poet Daphne Gottlieb stitches together the ivory tower and the gutter just using her tongue. She is the author and editor of 10 books, most recently the short stories “Pretty Much Dead. She is also the author of five books of poetry, two anthologies, and a graphic novel with artist Diane DiMassa. She is also the co-editor (with Lisa Kester) of Dear Dawn: Aileen Wuornos in her Own Words, letters from the “First Female Serial Killer” from Death Row to her childhood best friend.

She is the winner of the Acker Award, the Audre Lorde Award in Poetry, the Firecracker Alternative Book Award, and a five-time finalist for the Lambda Literary Award.

Gottlieb teaches graduate-level creative writing, and has also performed and taught creative writing workshops at all levels around the country. She received her MFA from Mills College.

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.

This Alaska by Carlie Hoffman (Poetry)

To live in an Alaska of the mind is to map the imagined cartography of winter on all that is physical.

To dwell perpetually in a symbolic cold, and to emerge, with grace, unscathed. This book questions what it means to live and love in such a buried season.

This Alaska interrogates all that emotional and physical intimacy cannot salvage or keep warm. Death and dreams are at the very center of this book. But life — and all it entails and circles and loses and loves — is at its heart.

Carlie Hoffman is a poet and translator from New Jersey. Her honors include a 92Y Discovery Prize and a Poets & Writers Amy Award. She is the founder and editor-in-chief of Small Orange Journal. This Alaska is her first book. She lives in New York City.

Wings in Time. Poetry by Callie Garnett

Callie Garnett’s first full-length collection of poems, Wings in Time, is a book one watches as much as reads.

Whether it be her memories of browsing now-extinct video stores, the tender lessons learned from children’s public television (Garnett’s mother is a long-time writer for Sesame Street), a student job at a CD & record shop, or Zoom meetings during quarantine back in her parents’ home, the four sections of this book nod toward media’s shifting formats and mirror the coming of age of the poet herself.

Garnett’s experiences and evocations have here been transcribed, recorded, rewound, shared and edited over emails, and nearly float context-less, full of the desire to touch the immaterial and the dematerialized.

Callie Garnett is the author of the chapbooks Hallelujah, I’m a Bum (Ugly Duckling Presse, 2015) and On Knowingness (The Song Cave, 2017). Her poems have appeared in the PEN Poetry Series, the Poetry Foundation, No Tokens, The Recluse, and elsewhere. She works as an Editor at Bloomsbury Publishing.

Heinrich Heine: Das Fräulein stand am Meere

 

Das Fräulein stand am Meere

Das Fräulein stand am Meere
Und seufzte lang und bang,
Es rührte sie so sehre
Der Sonnenuntergang.

Mein Fräulein! sein Sie munter,
Das ist ein altes Stück;
Hier vorne geht sie unter
Und kehrt von hinten zurück.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman: She who is to come

 

 She who is to come

A woman–in so far as she beholdeth
Her one Beloved’s face;
A mother–with a great heart that enfoldeth
The children of the Race;
A body, free and strong, with that high beauty
That comes of perfect use, is built thereof;
A mind where Reason ruleth over Duty,
And Justice reigns with Love;
A self-poised, royal soul, brave, wise and tender,
No longer blind and dumb;
A Human Being, of an unknown splendor,
Is she who is to come!

Albert Hagenaars: Het Aardbeienveld (gedicht)

Het Aardbeienveld
L.T.

En in alle vroegte

in het doorscheurende licht,
bleken we alleen en waaiden open,

waren onbegroeid en knielden
op het nog natte stro tussen het loof
en roken alsof we geen ogen hadden.

We drukten de rijpste in elkaars nek
en op de buik en lager, steeds harder
en hijgden zonder te begrijpen

want bleven sindsdien onvindbaar.

Vijftig jaar later schrap ik talg en eelt,
neem ik alsnog wat jij had durven geven,
bevend op een jongen,

verloren starend in het getande blad.

Albert Hagenaars: De Overgang (gedicht)

 

De Overgang
M.S.

Jij nooit ver, je vader vol soldatenzeer
van verre als versteende wortel in het hoofd.

Nu ook niet meer dichtbij, zo dicht
bij waar je ons tot verliezens toe dronk,
voor het eerst schonk wat je zelf steeds eiste.

Klokkend was de stilte na de lessen in dit bos
aan het spoor, op varens en zachte naalden.

Hier was het ook dat jij tussen de rails
nog net je armen spreidde, het kruis werd

dat je veertig jaar, met en zonder medicijnen,
in licht en schaduw van andere mannen,
van huis naar huis naar tehuis mee moest slepen.

Geluk wellicht nog in die allerlaatste flits,
in het geraas door je ooit zo lenige botten,
door je zo hevig verlangende vlees,

door de geest van je enig kind,

door je enige liefde

die bleef.

Jim Harrison: Complete Poems

Jim Harrison: Complete Poems is the definitive collection from one of America’s iconic writers.
Introduced by activist and naturalist writer Terry Tempest Williams, this tour de force contains every poem Harrison published over his fifty-year career and displays his wide range of poetic styles and forms. Here are the nature-based lyrics of his early work, the high-velocity ghazals, a harrowing prose-poem “correspondence” with a Russian suicide, the riverine suites, fearless meditations inspired by the Zen monk Crazy Cloud, and a joyous conversation in haiku-like gems with friend and fellow poet Ted Kooser.

Weaving throughout these 1000 pages are Harrison’s legendary passions and appetites, his love songs and lamentations, and a clarion call to pay attention to the life you are actually living. The Complete Poems confirms that Jim Harrison is a talented storyteller with a penetrating eye for details, or as Publishers Weekly called him, “an untrammeled renegade genius… a poet talking to you instead of around himself, while doing absolutely brilliant and outrageous things with language.”

Jim Harrison (1937–2016) was the author of over three dozen books, including Legends of the Fall and Dalva, and served as the food columnist for the magazines Brick and Esquire.
He published fourteen volumes of poetry, the final being Dead Man’s Float (2016). His work has been translated into two dozen languages and produced as four feature-length films. As a young poet he co-edited Sumac magazine with fellow poet Dan Gerber, and earned fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the Guggenheim Foundation.

In 2007, he was elected into the Academy of American Arts and Letters. Regarding his most beloved art form, he wrote: “Poetry, at its best, is the language your soul would speak if you could teach your soul to speak.” Jim Harrison certainly spoke the language.

Albert Hagenaars: Verboden Terrein (gedicht)

Verboden Terrein
T.M.

Spannender dan boeken, een tuin,
was de verwilderde bongerd.

Nog onwetend dwalen in dat domein
van netels en varens, gonzende
dan weer doodstille poelen, van geritsel

in geplet gras, in overvolle loofkuilen,
onder de rok van dennen.

Dan, plots, spitste spel zich toe
op verandering van lijf en leden,
een hem en een haar, knoestend

op de dikste tak van de appelboom.
Glanzend gleed hij nader over de bast.

Jij ervoer eerste verraad, werd één
met de stam. Ik

viel.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman: Girls of to-day

Girls of to-day

Girls of today! Give ear!
Never since time began
Has come to the race of man
A year, a day, an hour,
So full of promise and power
As the time that now is here!

Never in all the lands
Was there a power so great,
To move the wheels of state,
To lift up body and mind,
To waken the deaf and blind,
As the power that is in your hands!

Here at the gates of gold
You stand in the pride of youth,
Strong in courage and truth,
Stirred by a force kept back
Through centuries long and black,
Armed with a power threefold!

First: You are makers of men!
Then Be the things you preach!
Let your own greatness teach!
When Mothers like this you see
Men will be strong and free–
Then, and not till then!

Second: Since Adam fell,
Have you not heard it said
That men by women are led?
True is the saying–true!
See to it what you do!
See that you lead them well.

Third: You have work of your own!
Maid and mother and wife,
Look in the face of life!
There are duties you owe the race!
Outside your dwelling-place
There is work for you alone!

Maid and mother and wife,
See your own work be done!
Be worthy a noble son!
Help man in the upward way!
Truly, a girl today
Is the strongest thing in life!

(1860-1935)
