Kate Tempest: Running Upon The Wires (new poetry)

Running Upon The Wires is Kate Tempest’s first book of free-standing poetry since the acclaimed Hold Your Own.

In a beautifully varied series of formal poems, spoken songs, fragments, vignettes and ballads, Tempest charts the heartbreak at the end of one relationship and the joy at the beginning of a new love; but also tells us what happens in between, when the heart is pulled both ways at once.

Running Upon The Wires is, in a sense, a departure from her previous work, and unashamedly personal and intimate in its address – but will also confirm Tempest’s role as one of our most important poetic truth–tellers: it will be no surprise to readers to discover that she’s no less a direct and unflinching observer of matters of the heart than she is of social and political change. Running Upon The Wires is a heartbreaking, moving and joyous book about love, in its endings and in its beginnings.

Kate Tempest was born in London in 1985. She works across the shrinking gaps of a steadily converging media industry. Equally at home within the genres of theatre, performance, poetry and music, her name now appears on album covers, poetry books, and billboard hoardings. It is fitting then, that her individual works blend elements of oral, sonic, visual and written culture.

Her 2016 work, Let Them Eat Chaos, was published by Picador, composed for live performance and released as an album of the same name.

Kate Tempest was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize for her debut album, Everybody Down, and received the Ted Hughes Award and a Herald Angel Award for Brand New Ancients. Kate was also named a Next Generation poet in 2014.

Gertrude Stein: Susie Asado

 

Susie Asado

Sweet sweet sweet sweet sweet tea.
Susie Asado.
Sweet sweet sweet sweet sweet tea.
Susie Asado.
Susie Asado which is a told tray sure.
A lean on the shoe this means slips slips hers.
When the ancient light grey is clean it is yellow, it is a silver seller.
This is a please this is a please there are the saids to jelly. These are the wets these say the sets to leave a crown to Incy.
Incy is short for incubus.
A pot. A pot is a beginning of a rare bit of trees. Trees tremble, the old vats are in bobbles, bobbles which shade and shove and render clean, render clean must.
Drink pups.
Drink pups drink pups lease a sash hold, see it shine and a bobolink has pins. It shows a nail.
What is a nail. A nail is unison.
Sweet sweet sweet sweet sweet tea.

Soho: an intimate and vital poetry debut by Richard Scott

In this intimate and vital debut, Richard Scott creates an uncompromising portrait of love and gay shame.

Examining how trauma becomes a part of the language we use, Scott takes us back to our roots: childhood incidents, the violence our scars betray, forgotten forebears and histories. The hungers of sexual encounters are underscored by the risks that threaten when we give ourselves to or accept another. But the poems celebrate joy and tenderness, too, as in a sequence re-imagining the love poetry of Verlaine.

The collection crescendos to Scott’s tour de force, ‘Oh My Soho!’, where a night stroll under the street lamps of Soho Square becomes a search for true lineage, a reclamation of stolen ancestors, hope for healing, and, above all, the finding of our truest selves.

Richard Scott grew up in London and studied at the Royal College of Music and at Goldsmiths College. He has been a winner of the Wasafiri New Writing Prize, a Jerwood/Arvon Poetry mentee, a member of the Aldeburgh 8 and an Open Spaces artist resident at Snape Maltings in Suffolk. His pamphlet Wound (Rialto) won the Michael Marks Poetry Award 2016 and his poem ‘crocodile’ won the 2017 Poetry London Competition.

Scott was born in London in 1981. His poems have appeared widely in magazines and anthologies including Poetry Review, Poetry London, Swimmers, The Poetry of Sex (Penguin) and Butt Magazine. He has been a winner of the Wasafiri New Writing Prize, a Jerwood/Arvon Poetry Mentee and a member of the Aldeburgh 8. His pamphlet Wound, published by Rialto, won the Michael Marks Poetry Award 2016. His debut collection is forthcoming from Faber & Faber in 2018.

Ulrike Almut Sandig: Thick of It

The poems of Ulrike Almut Sandig are at once simple and fantastic.

This new collection finds her on her way to imaginary territories. Thick of It charts a journey through two hemispheres to “the center of the world” and navigates a “thicket” that is at once the world, the psyche, and language itself.

The poems explore an urgently urban reality, but that reality is interwoven with references to nightmares, the Bible, fairy tales, and nursery rhymes—all overlaid with a finely tuned longing for a disappearing world. The old names are forgotten, identities fall away; things disappear from the kitchen; everything is sliding away.

Powerful themes emerge, but always mapped onto the local, the fractured individual in “the thick of it” all. This is language at its most crafted and transformative, blisteringly contemporary, but with a kind of austerity, too.

By turns comic, ironic, skeptical, nostalgic, these poems are also profoundly musical, exploiting multiple meanings and stretching syntax, so that the audience is constantly kept guessing, surprised by the next turn in the line.

Patti Smith is a singer and poet. As the ‘Godmother of Punk’, she protested against social conventions, mindless factory labour and the commercialised world with her powerful and controversial music. She grew up with the music of Bob Dylan, lived together with photographer Robert Mapplethorpe and became a familiar face in the turbulent art scene of New York City. In 1974 Smith started performing with guitarist Lenny Kaye, forming the core of The Patti Smith Group. Her debut album Horses (1975) is considered to be one of the most influential albums in the history of rock music. With Bruce Springsteen she wrote Because the Night, her biggest hit. In addition to many albums, Smith also published poetry and books, including Just Kids (2010), her award-winning autobiography on life in New York in the seventies and her relation with Mapplethorpe.

Sibylla Schwarz: Alß sie ein Poëtischer Geist tribe

Sibylla Schwarz
Alß sie ein Poëtischer Geist tribe

Ich, der ich sonsten pflag von schlechten Dingen schreiben,
bin gänzlich umgekehrt, nun muß mein Lob wohl bleiben,
und grünen wie ein Zweig, iezt wil ich meinen Sinn,
von dem, das niedrig ist, biß in die Wolcken ziehn.
Die Göttin Fama wil mir selber Flügel geben,
die immer für und für am helle n Himmel kleben,
und wo der Venus Sohn hinfüro schiessen wil
nach mir, so raht ich, daß er in die Wolcken Ziel.
Da soll mein Ball=Plaz seyn, da soll das Glüder fliegen,
wie Spreu das brennen muß, und allzeit unten ligen.
Die Clio bindet mir schon selbst die Lohrbeer=Kron,
die Ewig grünen wird / nun soll die Kunst den Lohn
erlangen, recht; So muß ein freyer Sinn bekleiben;
nuhn, ich will immer auch bey meinen Worten bleiben,
und steigen mit dem Sinn des Himmels Leiter an,
ein jeder sey bereit, daß er mir folgen kan.

Willem van Toorn: De jongenskamer. Een gedicht

W is de hoofdpersoon in de gedichten van De jongenskamer die samen één verhalend gedicht vormen.

Het begint in de jaren voor de Tweede Wereldoorlog en eindigt in de onherkenbaar veranderde wereld van nu – maar wel met een liefdesgedicht.

De kamer achter de werkplaats van W’s vader, een kleermaker, is de plek waar onder invloed van de tijd en de geschiedenis de eerste ideeën van W en zijn broers ontstaan over liefde, vriendschap, kunst en sport – én over de politieke en sociale werkelijkheid en de rol die het individu daarin kan spelen.

Al de liefdeservaringen, de vriendschappen, de boeken, de reizen die het leven van W bepalen, lijken toch altijd met onzichtbare draden verbonden met de eerste waarnemingen uit de jongenskamer.

Willem van Toorn (Amsterdam, 1935) is dichter, schrijver en vertaler. Hij publiceerde een groot aantal romans en verhalen- en gedichtenbundels, en was redacteur van het literair tijdschrift Raster.

Patti Smith: The New Jerusalem (Nexus Bibliotheek – Tweetalige uitgave)

Het besluit van president Trump de Amerikaanse ambassade in Israël naar Jeruzalem te verhuizen inspireerde Patti Smith tot het schrijven van een gedicht, The New Jerusalem.

Dit nieuwe, nog ongepubliceerde werk van de beroemde punkpoëet verschijnt exclusief bij Nexus als tweetalige uitgave in de Nexus Bibliotheek. Naast The New Jerusalem zal deze uitgave ook een drietal eerdere gedichten bevatten. De vertaling van de gedichten wordt verzorgd door Onno Kosters. The New Jerusalem wordt gepresenteerd bij het Nexus-symposium ‘An Education in Counterculture’, 26 mei in Amsterdam.

. . .these things we saw written on the immense screen once known as sky. And these things we heard as prophecy’s lullaby. The mountain is the mountain. The Lord is the Lord. The holy city belongs to none. The mountains of Judah belong to none. The yielding seed belongs to none. And we are the new Jerusalem.

Patti Smith, USA 1946, is zangeres en dichteres. Als ‘Godmother of Punk’ protesteerde zij met krachtige, controversiële muziek tegen de gevestigde orde en wezenloze fabrieksarbeid in de vercommercialiseerde wereld. Ze groeide op met de muziek van Bob Dylan, leefde samen met fotograaf Robert Mapplethorpe en werd een bekend gezicht in de turbulente New Yorkse kunstscene.

In 1974 begon Smith op te treden met gitarist Lenny Kaye, met wie ze nog steeds de kern van de band The Patti Smith Group vormt. Haar debuutalbum Horses (1975) wordt gezien als een van de invloedrijkste albums in de geschiedenis van de rockmuziek. Samen met Bruce Springsteen schreef ze Because the Night, haar grootste hit. Naast vele albums schreef Smith ook dichtbundels en boeken, waaronder Just Kids (2010), haar bekroonde autobiografie over het leven in New York in de jaren zeventig en haar relatie met Mapplethorpe.

Sara Teasdale: The Voice

fdm_sarateasdale

The Voice

Atoms as old as stars,
Mutation on mutation,
Millions and millions of cells
Dividing yet still the same,
From air and changing earth,
From ancient Eastern rivers,
From turquoise tropic seas,
Unto myself I came.
My spirit like my flesh
Sprang from a thousand sources,
From cave-man, hunter and shepherd,
From Karnak, Cyprus, Rome;
The living thoughts in me
Spring from dead men and women,
Forgotten time out of mind
And many as bubbles of foam.
Here for a moment’s space
Into the light out of darkness,
I come and they come with me
Finding words with my breath;
From the wisdom of many life-times
I hear them cry: ‘Forever
Seek for Beauty, she only
Fights with man against Death!’

 

Sara Teasdale
(1884 – 1933)

Toon Tellegen: De seringenboom. Herinneringen aan mijn broer

Toon Tellegen: ‘Iedereen bewonderde mijn broer, maar ik het meest van iedereen.’

Als kleine jongen keek Toon Tellegen op tegen zijn zes jaar oudere broer, die onverzettelijk was, alle regels aan zijn laars lapte en zijn eigen weg ging. Toen die broer in 2016 overleed, begon hij zijn herinneringen op te schrijven aan de tijd dat ze allebei nog thuis woonden. Zijn grote broer kon alles, hij durfde alles en vaak liep dat uit de hand.

Maar al berusten Tellegens kleurrijke herinneringen voor een groot deel op waarheid, zijn fantasie geeft de stoere heldendaden een nog absurdistischere wending. Moeten we al die heldendaden geloven? Ja, want als het niet echt gebeurd is, had het wel zo kúnnen gebeuren!

Net als in Een vorig leven roept Tellegen in De seringenboom de wereld van zijn jeugd op, en wekt hij die voorbije tijd tot leven in mooie, ontroerende en grappige verhalen.

Toon Tellegen (Brielle, 1941) is dichter, kinderboekenschrijver en schrijver van proza en toneel voor volwassenen.

Bayard Taylor: Bedouin Song

 

Bedouin Song

From the Desert I come to thee
On a stallion shod with fire;
And the winds are left behind
In the speed of my desire.
Under thy window I stand,
And the midnight hears my cry:
I love thee, I love but thee,
With a love that shall not die
Till the sun grows cold,
And the stars are old,
And the leaves of the Judgement
Book unfold!

Look from thy window and see
My passion and my pain;
I lie on the sands below,
And I faint in thy disdain.
Let the night-winds touch thy brow
With the heat of my burning sigh,
And melt thee to hear the vow
Of a love that shall not die
Till the sun grows cold,
And the stars are old,
And the leaves of the Judgement
Book unfold!

My steps are nightly driven,
By the fever in my breast,
To hear from thy lattice breathed
The word that shall give me rest.
Open the door of thy heart,
And open thy chamber door,
And my kisses shall teach thy lips
The love that shall fade no more
Till the sun grows cold,
And the stars are old,
And the leaves of the Judgement
Book unfold!

Bayard Taylor
(1825-1878)
