Between Wings: poems By James Long
Paperback: $15.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
The author has been privileged to encounter and study with poets James Wright, John Logan, W.S. Merwin, John Unterecker, Galway Kinnell and others. The deeply personal lyrics in Between Wings,... More > written over a period of 30 years, reflect those influences, as well as the author’s reading of poets like Rilke, Plath, and the Deep Image poets. The shadow of a woman presides over the poems -- usually in the form of elegy or lament. Taken together, the poems enact the archetypal myth of separation and return in terms of the speaker's own history. They speak throughout from a perspective at the border between self and other, solitude and union, the darkness and the light -- seeking a state of transcendence-in-union glimpsed and longed for but always remaining just beyond realization -- "where the jewel of absolute darkness shines and shines / and all the masters of the light go blind."< Less

Amy Lawrence Lowell (February 9, 1874 – May 12, 1925) was an American poet of the Imagist school from Brookline, Massachusetts, who posthumously won the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry in 1926.... More > Though she sometimes wrote sonnets, Lowell was an early adherent to the "free verse" method of poetry and one of the major champions of this method. She defined it in her preface to "Sword Blades and Poppy Seed" as "The definition of Vers libre is: a verse-formal based upon cadence. To understand vers libre, one must abandon all desire to find in it the even rhythm of metrical feet. One must allow the lines to flow as they will when read aloud by an intelligent reader. Or, to put it another way, unrhymed cadence is "built upon 'organic rhythm,' or the rhythm of the speaking voice with its necessity for breathing, rather than upon a strict metrical system. Free verse within its own law of cadence has no absolute rules; it would not be 'free' if it had."< Less

“shards and dust,” a collection of new & selected cherita by Larry Kimmel, demonstrates this talented east/west fusionist’s flair for a unified literature. The Cherita is a... More > six-line poetic form deriving from the haiku and its related linked forms. Using only 35 of these brief, six-line poems, the poet has created a persona moving through a sort of nano-odyssey of the inner-mind, showing a wide range of emotion and experience -- from homestead memoirs to foreign and domestic travel -- arriving at a spiritual/artistic conclusion. Not necessarily in a strict time-oriented sequence, like memory itself, this fragmented stream of consciousness is one man’s meditation on the human condition, done in a concise imagistic and heightened poetic voice.< Less
