Greta Bellamacina: Tomorrow’s Woman

In Tomorrow’s Woman, Greta Bellamacina‘s bold, exploratory voice combines the vivid imagery of French surrealism and British romantic poetry with a modern, first-person examination of love, gender identity, motherhood, and social issues.

Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine writes that “Bellamacina is garnering critical acclaim for her way with words and her ability to translate the classic poetic form into the contemporary creative landscape.”

Greta Bellamacina is an actress, filmmaker, and poet. She was born in London and made her acting debut in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire at the age of thirteen. She trained at RADA, where she performed a variety of lead theatre roles, before going on get a B.A. in English at King’s College London. Her feature film Hurt by Paradise is currently in post-production.

As a poet, Greta Bellamacina was shortlisted as Young Poet Laureate in 2014 for her debut collection, Kaleidoscope. In 2015, she edited On Love, a survey of contemporary British love poetry from Ted Hughes to the present. The same year, she published Perishing Tame, her first collection with New River Press, “a dazzling meditation on motherhood, female identity, ennui and love,” which she launched at The Shakespeare & Company in Paris.

In 2016, she published a collection of collaborative poetry with Robert Montgomery: Points for Time in the Sky, a pyschogeographical journey through modern Britain, and a rare example of collaborative poetry in British literature. The same year, she edited Smear, an anthology of contemporary feminist poetry. Dazed said the collection “unapologetically confronts self-image, body autonomy and our relationships with each other, celebrating the imperfect, frank woman.” In 2018, she was commissioned by the National Poetry Library to write a group of poems for their Odyssey series—modern mediations on Homer’s Odyssey.

Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine says Greta “is garnering critical acclaim for her way with words and her ability to translate the classic poetic form into the contemporary creative landscape.”

This is her first volume of her poetry to be released in the United States.

LUSTWARANDE MOET BLIJVEN!

  

  LUSTWARANDE MOET BLIJVEN

 ∇ GEEN SUBSIDIE MEER VAN PROVINCIE EN GEMEENTE ∇

LUSTWARANDE wil de komende jaren heel graag exposities blijven maken in De Oude Warande. Maar provincie Noord-Brabant en gemeente Tilburg hebben besloten om LUSTWARANDE geen subsidie meer toe te kennen.  Zonder hun steun houdt LUSTWARANDE na 20 jaar op te bestaan. We doen een beroep op jou om LUSTWARANDE te steunen met woord of beeld om dit besluit terug draaien. Gelukkig kende het Mondriaan Fonds LUSTWARANDE onlangs wel subsidie toe voor de komende jaren. Dat provincie en gemeente mogen volgen. Want LUSTWARANDE moet blijven!

 ∇ STEUNBETUIGINGEN ∇

In de afgelopen weken kwamen al heel veel hartverwarmende steunbetuigingen binnen van gerenommeerde Nederlandse en internationale kunstenaars, galeriehouders, museumdirecteuren, kunstcritici en fans. Denk daarbij aan kunstenaars als Anish Kapoor, Monica Bonvicini, Antony Gormley, Lee Bul, Ugo Rondinone, Maria Roosen en Rebecca Warren, Martijn van Nieuwenhuyzen (directeur De Pont), Godfrey Worsdale (directeur Henry Moore Foundation), Lisette Pelsers (directeur Kröller-Müller Museum), Charles de Mooij (directeur Noordbrabants Museum), Errol van de Werdt (directeur TextielMuseum), Jan van Adrichem (voormalig hoofd collecties Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam), Johan Pas (hoofd Koninklijke Academie voor Schone Kunsten Antwerpen) en Martijn Sanders (voorzitter Holland Festival).

Yahya Hassan: Gedichten 2

In 59 gedichten vertelt Yahya Hassan in Gedichten 2 zijn hoogstpersoonlijke verhaal.

Hij dicht over het leven vanaf zijn achttiende, zijn debuut als auteur, zijn leven als ‘trofee-paki’ die niet meer zonder politiebegeleiding over straat kan, over achtervolgingen en vechtpartijen.

Totdat hij opgesloten wordt en vervolgens opgenomen en gediagnosticeerd als ‘psycho-paki’.

Het zijn gedichten over twijfel, woede, eenzaamheid en geweld, over de gekte in de wereld en de gekte in jezelf, over de zoektocht naar liefde en vriendschap en de onmogelijkheid die vast te houden. Het is een bundel die alleen door Yahya Hassan geschreven had kunnen worden.

Yahya Hassan (Aarhus, 1995-2020) was de zoon van Palestijnse ouders die in de jaren tachtig vanuit een vluchtelingenkamp naar Denemarken emigreerden. Hassan groeide op in een achterstandswijk en kwam op dertienjarige leeftijd in een internaat voor probleemjongeren terecht. Daar ontwikkelde hij een grote belangstelling voor literatuur en hij begon gedichten te schrijven. Zijn debuutbundel werd lovend en als literair vernieuwend ontvangen door de Deense pers en maakte veel discussie los over de immigratieproblematiek. Er werden in Denemarken meer dan 100.000 exemplaren van verkocht en het werd met diverse literaire prijzen bekroond, waaronder de prestigieuze Deense debutantenprijs. Hassan overleed op 29 april 2020 op 24-jarige leeftijd.

William Blake: The Little Vagabond

 

The Little Vagabond

Dear mother, dear mother, the Church is cold;
But the Alehouse is healthy, and pleasant, and warm.
Besides, I can tell where I am used well;
The poor parsons with wind like a blown bladder swell.

But, if at the Church they would give us some ale,
And a pleasant fire our souls to regale,
We’d sing and we’d pray all the livelong day,
Nor ever once wish from the Church to stray.

Then the Parson might preach, and drink, and sing,
And we’d be as happy as birds in the spring;
And modest Dame Lurch, who is always at church,
Would not have bandy children, nor fasting, nor birch.

And God, like a father, rejoicing to see
His children as pleasant and happy as he,
Would have no more quarrel with the Devil or the barrel,
But kiss him, and give him both drink and apparel.

William Blake
(1757 – 1827)

Jihyun Yun: Some Are Always Hungry

Winner of the Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Poetry, Some Are Always Hungry chronicles a family’s wartime survival, immigration, and heirloom trauma through the lens of food, or the lack thereof.

Through the vehicle of recipe, butchery, and dinner table poems, the collection negotiates the myriad ways diasporic communities comfort and name themselves in other nations, as well as the ways cuisine is inextricably linked to occupation, transmission, and survival.

Dwelling on the personal as much as the historical, Some Are Always Hungry traces the lineage of the speaker’s place in history and diaspora through mythmaking and cooking, which is to say, conjuring.

Jihyun Yun is a Korean American poet from California who now lives in Ann Arbor, Michigan. A Fulbright research grant recipient, she has received degrees from the University of California–Davis and New York University. Her work has appeared in Narrative Magazine, Poetry Northwest, Adroit Journal, and other publications.

Richard Le Gallienne: “Face in the Tomb that Lies so Still”

 

“Face in the Tomb

 that Lies so Still”

Face in the tomb, that lies so still,
May I draw near,
And watch your sleep and love you,
Without word or tear.

You smile, your eyelids flicker;
Shall I tell
How the world goes that lost you?
Shall I tell?

Ah! love, lift not your eyelids;
‘Tis the same
Old story that we laughed at,–
Still the same.

We knew it, you and I,
We knew it all:
Still is the small the great,
The great the small;

Still the cold lie quenches
The flaming truth,
And still embattled age
Wars against youth.

Yet I believe still in the ever-living God
That fills your grave with perfume,
Writing your name in violets across the sod,
Shielding your holy face from hail and snow;
And, though the withered stay, the lovely go,
No transitory wrong or wrath of things
Shatters the faith–that each slow minute brings

That meadow nearer to us where your feet
Shall flicker near me like white butterflies–
That meadow where immortal lovers meet,
Gazing for ever in immortal eyes.

Richard Le Gallienne
(1866 – 1947)

Guillotine. Poems by Eduardo C. Corral

Guillotine traverses desert landscapes cut through by migrants, the grief of loss, betrayal’s lingering scars, the border itself—great distances in which violence and yearning find roots.

Through the voices of undocumented immigrants, border patrol agents, and scorned lovers, award-winning poet Eduardo C. Corral writes dramatic portraits of contradiction, survival, and a deeply human, relentless interiority. With extraordinary lyric imagination, these poems wonder about being unwanted or renounced. What do we do with unrequited love? Is it with or without it that we would waste away?

In the sequence “Testaments Scratched into a Water Station Barrel,” with Corral’s seamless integration of Spanish and English, poems curve around the surfaces upon which they are written, overlapping like graffiti left by those who may or may not have survived crossing the border. A harrowing second collection, Guillotine solidifies Corral’s place in the expanding ecosystem of American poetry.

The astonishing second collection by the author of Slow Lightning, winner of the Yale Younger Poets Prize

Eduardo C. Corral is the author of Slow Lightning, winner of the Yale Younger Poets Prize. He was a founding fellow of the CantoMundo Writers Conference, and recipient of a Whiting Award. He teaches at North Carolina State University.

The Tradition, poems by Jericho Brown

Beauty abounds in Jericho Brown’s Pulitzer Prize-winning poetry collection, despite and inside of the evil that pollutes the everyday.

A National Book Award finalist, The Tradition questions why and how we’ve become accustomed to terror: in the bedroom, the classroom, the workplace, and the movie theater. From mass shootings to rape to the murder of unarmed people by police, Brown interrupts complacency by locating each emergency in the garden of the body, where living things grow and wither—or survive.

In the urgency born of real danger, Brown’s work is at its most innovative. His invention of the duplex—a combination of the sonnet, the ghazal, and the blues—is an all-out exhibition of formal skill, and his lyrics move through elegy and memory with a breathless cadence. Jericho Brown is a poet of eros: here he wields this power as never before, touching the very heart of our cultural crisis.

Jericho Brown is a Pulitzer Prize-winning poet and the recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard, and the National Endowment for the Arts, and he is the winner of a Whiting Award. Brown’s first book, Please (New Issues, 2008), won the American Book Award. His second book, The New Testament (Copper Canyon, 2014), won the Anisfield-Wolf Book Award. His third collection is The Tradition (Copper Canyon, 2019)—winner of the 2020 Pulitzer Prize in Poetry and a finalist for the 2019 National Book Award. His poems have appeared in Bennington Review, BuzzFeed, Fence, jubilat, The New Republic, The New York Times, The New Yorker, The Paris Review, TIME, and several volumes of The Best American Poetry. He is an associate professor and the director of the Creative Writing Program at Emory University.

Charles Baudelaire: Les Yeux de Berthe

 

Les Yeux de Berthe

Vous pouvez mépriser les yeux les plus célèbres,
Beaux yeux de mon enfant, par où filtre et s’enfuit
Je ne sais quoi de bon, de doux comme la Nuit!
Beaux yeux, versez sur moi vos charmantes ténèbres!

Grands yeux de mon enfant, arcanes adorés,
Vous ressemblez beaucoup à ces grottes magiques
Où, derrière l’amas des ombres léthargiques,
Scintillent vaguement des trésors ignorés!

Mon enfant a des yeux obscurs, profonds et vastes,
Comme toi, Nuit immense, éclairés comme toi!
Leurs feux sont ces pensers d’Amour, mêlés de Foi,
Qui pétillent au fond, voluptueux ou chastes.

Charles Baudelaire
(1821-1867)

Ulrike Draesner: Schwitters in the Lakes

How do you begin a future that has essentially already ended, separated from your home, your language and yourself by a stretch of water? Kurt Schwitters is forty-nine years old when the Nazis force him to flee Germany. His success, work, possessions, parents, and wife Helma stay behind – and art gives way to the art of survival.

Schwitters’s second life in a foreign language begins in Norway, then takes him to London and finally to the Lake District. Wantee, the new woman at his side, keeps him on course and his head above water, even when the word artist falls silent. With his Merzbau installation, Schwitters has discovered a new way to capture sky and serenity, shimmering meadows and transparent air. He is ludicrously disciplined, to the point of exhaustion. As we watch him at work, we learn that art doesn’t interpret the world: It translates it into forms that move us.

In Schwitters in the Lakes, Ulrike Draesner follows the writer and artist Kurt Schwitters into exile, giving voice to Kurt, his wife, his son and his lover. Through a virtuoso blend of fact and fiction, she has created a panorama of a time when the struggle for freedom and art was renewed in the face of a world on fire.

A profound yet witty novel about the power of art in dark times.

Ulrike Draesner, born in 1962, is a lyricist, novelist and essayist. She studied English, German and philosophy and has worked as an academic, translator and editor. She has published poetry collections, short stories, and novels, and held posts at several renowned universities such as the Swiss Literature Institute in Biel. She was a Visiting Fellow at New College, Oxford and at the Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities and is professor for German Literature and Creative Writing at the Deutsche Literaturinstitut Leipzig. Ulrike Draesner has received numerous awards.
