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.

Friedrich Nietzsche
(1844 – 1900)
Ecce homo

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. With Erika Jo Brown, she’s co-editing the anthology Clever Girl: Witty Poetry by Women.

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!…

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.

Eva van Manen: Hoe zijn we hier gekomen?

De debuutbundel van artiest, songwriter en producer Eva van Manen.

Geveld door Covid-19 brengt een jonge vrouw twee maanden door in bed. Beperkt in haar bewegingsvrijheid, springt ze heen en weer tussen situaties waarin machtsverhoudingen een rol spelen. Ziek- tegenover gezond zijn, mannen tegenover vrouwen en het geheel tegenover het individu.

Als jonge vrouw die een zwaar ziekbed heeft beleefd, kan ze zich niet ontrekken aan de pure willekeur. Het is toeval wie ziek wordt, wie binnen bepaalde grenzen geboren wordt en wie als vrouw.

In Hoe zijn we hier gekomen? spit ze in haar herinneringen op zoek naar de wortels van de vraag hoe we hier gekomen zijn. In dit land, dit lichaam en dit politieke klimaat. De bundel is een aaneenrijging van schurende situaties en gedachten, in verre oorden en dichtbij huis.

Eva van Manen (1989) is artiest, dichter, songwriter en producer. Haar debuutalbum Politiek & Liefde overbrugt stijlen als rap, elektronica en gitaarpop met een persoonlijke invalshoek. Ze onderzoekt waar politiek en liefde elkaar treffen. Het lied Omdat we verdergaan afkomstig van Politiek & Liefde werd genomineerd voor de Annie M.G. Schmidtprijs 2021.

ANTOINE TIMMERMANS: TUTTI FRUTTI – “portretten waar de verf vanaf spat”

De lente lonkt, het virus blaast de aftocht, tijd voor een lustige expositie in het ‘Metropolitan Museum Tilburg’, de raamtentoonstellingen aan de Stedekestraat. Het museum presenteert u ‘TUTTI FRUTTI’ van de veelzijdige Tilburgse kunstenaar Antoine Timmermans.

De meester pakt uitbundig uit met een reeks sprankelende portretten, spontane, bijkans impulsieve, schilderijen waar de kleurenrijkdom vanaf spat. Doeken met fleurige geliefden en gestorvenen, echte en gedroomde, ze kijken u allen doordringend aan.

Het werk van Timmermans is doortrokken van het ‘echte’ leven, iets waar, volgens hem, kunst over zou moeten gaan: “we hebben betere verhalen nodig voor onze toekomst!” Nu met canvas, penselen en olieverf. En zoals altijd met humor. De kunstenaar is daarnaast bekend als decorbouwer, ontwerper van flamboyante kleding, theatermaker, maar vooral als de dragqueen ‘Cybersissy’. U kent haar vast van Roze Maandag of uit de vele clubs in binnen- en buitenland.

De schilder volgde zijn kunstopleidingen in Breda, Arendonk, Den Haag en Den Bosch. In weerwil wat destijds in zwang was legde hij zich toe op de figuratieve kunst. In prikkelende beelden, extravagante kostuums, bonte pruiken en mutsen, en natuurlijk in zijn schilderijen. Deze laatsten kunt u zien in het ‘Metropolitan Museum’ van vrijdag 18 maart t/m zondag 8 mei 2022, Stedekestraat 15, 5041DM Tilburg. Dagelijks, dag en nacht open, toegang vrij.

‘Useful Junk’ by: Erika Meitner

A master of documentary poetry, Erika Meitner takes up the question of desire and intimacy in her latest collection of poems.

In her previous five collections of poetry, Erika Meitner has established herself as one of America’s most incisive observers, cherished for her remarkable ability to temper catastrophe with tenderness. In her newest collection Useful Junk, Meitner considers what it means to be a sexual being in a world that sees women as invisible—as mothers, customers, passengers, worshippers, wives.

These poems render our changing bodies as real and alive, shaped by the sense memories of long-lost lovers and the still thrilling touch of a spouse after years of parenthood, affirming that we are made of every intimate moment we have ever had.

Letter poems to a younger poet interspersed throughout the collection question desire itself and how new technologies—Uber, sexting, Instagram—are reframing self-image and shifting the ratios of risk and reward in erotic encounters.

With dauntless vulnerability, Meitner travels a world of strip malls, supermarkets, and subway platforms, remaining porous and open to the world, always returning to the intimacies rooted deep within the self as a shout against the dying earth.

Boldly affirming that pleasure is a vital form of knowledge, Useful Junk reminds us that our bodies are made real and beautiful by our embodied experiences and that our desire is what keeps us alive.

Erika Meitner is the author of five books of poems, including Ideal Cities (Harper Perennial, 2010), which was a 2009 National Poetry Series winner, Copia (BOA Editions, 2014), and Holy Moly Carry Me (BOA Editions, 2018). Her poems have appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Tin House, The New Republic, Virginia Quarterly Review, Oxford American, Best American Poetry, Ploughshares, and elsewhere. In 2015, she was the US-UK Fulbright Distinguished Scholar in Creative Writing at the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry at Queen’s University Belfast, and she has also received fellowships from The MacDowell Colony, the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, the Blue Mountain Center, and the Wisconsin Institute for Creative Writing. She is currently an associate professor of English at Virginia Tech, where she directs the MFA and undergraduate programs in Creative Writing.

The Collected Works of Jim Morrison: Poetry, Journals, Transcripts, and Lyrics

The definitive anthology of Jim Morrison‘s writings with rare photographs and numerous handwritten excerpts of unpublished and published poetry and lyrics from his 28 privately held notebooks.

You can also hear Jim Morrison’s final poetry recording, now available for the first time, on the CD or digital audio edition of this book, at the Village Recorder in West Los Angeles on his twenty-seventh birthday, December 8, 1970.

The audio book also includes performances by Patti Smith, Oliver Ray, Liz Phair, Tom Robbins, and others reading Morrison’s work.

Created in collaboration with Jim Morrison’s estate and inspired by a posthumously discovered list entitled “Plan for Book,”

The Collected Works of Jim Morrison is an almost 600-page anthology of the writings of the late poet and iconic Doors’ front man. This landmark publication is the definitive opus of Morrison’s creative output—and the book he intended to publish. Throughout, a compelling mix of 160 visual components accompanies the text, which includes numerous excerpts from his 28 privately held notebooks—all written in his own hand and published here for the first time—as well as an array of personal images and commentary on the work by Morrison himself.

This oversized, beautifully produced collectible volume contains a wealth of new material—poetry, writings, lyrics, and audio transcripts of Morrison reading his work.

Not only the most comprehensive book of Morrison’s work ever published, it is immersive, giving readers insight to the creative process of and offering access to the musings and observations of an artist whom the poet Michael McClure called “one of the finest, clearest spirits of our times.”

This remarkable collector’s item includes:
• Foreword by Tom Robbins; introduction and notes by editor Frank Lisciandro that provide insight to the work; prologue by Anne Morrison Chewning
• Published and unpublished work and a vast selection of notebook writings
• The transcript, the only photographs in existence, and production notes of Morrison’s last poetry recording on his twenty-seventh birthday
• The Paris notebook, possibly Morrison’s final journal, reproduced at full reading size
• Excerpts from notebooks kept during his 1970 Miami trial
• The shooting script and gorgeous color stills from the never-released film HWY
• Complete published a I Look Back”: a compelling autobiography in poem form
• Family photographs as well as images of Morrison during his years as a performer

 

James Douglas Morrison

(1943-1971) was a poet, filmmaker, screenwriter, and the lead singer of as well as the lyricist and a composer for The Doors. Prior to his death, Morrison self-published three limited-edition volumes of his poetry: The Lords/Notes on Vision (1969), The New Creatures (1969), and An American Prayer (1970). Simon & Schuster published the combined The Lords and the New Creatures in 1970. Posthumous editions of Morrison’s writings include Wilderness: The Lost Writings of Jim Morrison, Volume I (1988) and The American Night: The Lost Writings of Jim Morrison, Volume II (1990).

Alice Nahon: O Kind’ren van mijn Droomen (Gedicht)

 

O KIND’REN
VAN MIJN DROOMEN

O kind’ren van mijn droomen,
O bloemkens van mijn tuin,
Wat buigt ge droef en loome
Uw teng’re kopkens schuin…

Ge waart zo frisch te voren
Als klokskens van de Mei,
O lievekens, geboren
Uit droom en mijmerij…

En ‘k heb u, stil-bewogen,
Gevoed, bij nacht en dag,
Met regen van mijn oogen,
Met zonne van mijn lach.

Ik wil u niet zien welken;
Ge moet herleven nog.
O liefde…, warm die kelken,
O zonne…, zoen ze toch,

En koester, lieve, goede
Mijn zielekind’ren weêr;
Ik kan ze niet meer voeden:
‘k Heb geen illuzies meer.

Alice Nahon: Weemoed (Gedicht)

 

WEEMOED

Uit de bloemen en de bomen
Stijgt een onbepaalde klacht
‘s Avonds, als ik zit te dromen
En gedwee m’n weemoed wacht.
En uit alle de gewesten
Rijst een zang van droefenis
Omdat ginds in ‘t rode Westen
‘t Zonnelicht aan ‘t sterven is…

‘k Zit naar ‘t sparrenbos te staren,
Waar die stralen stervend zijn;
‘k Wou zo geern’ wat glans vergaren
Voor mijn droevig zielekijn.
Maar ze daalt reeds in de bomen
En haar stralen houdt ze bij,
Z’heeft mijn blijheid meegenomen
En wat weemoed liet ze mij.

Stil, o stille… ‘k Voel ze komen
Milde weemoedsmelodij,
Zachte, wondre weeldestromen
Brengen mij gedichtjes bij.
Stil, o stille, ‘k hoor d’akkoorden
Klagen door de schemering.
‘k Voel geen tranen, ‘k weet geen woorden,
‘k Vind alleen herinnering.

Dank, o zon, dat gij mijn zangen,
Als g’in ‘t leven slapen gaat,
Voor dees grauwe gasthuisgangen
Mild en goed behouden laat.
Dank, o weemoed, dat gij dromen
Zendt door mijne droefenis,
Wijl dees donkere dagen komen
Wijl mijn zon gestorven is…
