Introduction in poetry: nature of poetry, tools, history, terms (periods, styles and movements, technical means, tropes, measures of verse, verse forms, national poetry... Poetry (ancient Greek:... More > ποιεω (poieo) = I create) is traditionally a written art form (although there is also an ancient and modern poetry which relies mainly upon oral or pictorial representations) in which human language is used for its aesthetic qualities in addition to, or instead of, its notional and semantic content. The increased emphasis on the aesthetics of language and the deliberate use of features such as repetition, meter and rhyme, are what are commonly used to distinguish poetry from prose, but debates over such distinctions still persist, while the issue is confounded by such forms as prose poetry and poetic prose.< Less

The increased emphasis on the aesthetics of language and the deliberate use of features such as repetition, meter and rhyme, are what are commonly used to distinguish poetry from prose, but debates over such distinctions still persist, while the issue is confounded by such forms as prose poetry and poetic prose. Some modernists (such as the Surrealists) approach this problem of definition by defining poetry not as a literary genre within a set of genres, but as the very manifestation of human imagination, the substance which all creative acts derive from.< Less
Leaves of Grass By Walt Whitman
eBook (ePub): $1.56
Leaves of Grass is Walt Whitman’s best known collection of poetry and encapsulates his whole life’s work. Walt Whitman has been described as the father of free verse, and his approach to... More > poetry as demonstrated in Leaves of Grass has been an inspiration to poets ever since its first publication in 1855. The frank sexuality of Whitman’s poetry in Leaves of Grass was controversial at the time and was condemned as obscene. Whitman does talk about sex in an honest way, but he sees it as part of nature, to be celebrated. Whitman in poems such as “Song of Myself” and “I Sing the Body Electric” exulted nature and the material world, and cast aside the old poetic tropes of symbolism and allegory. Walt Whitman remains one of the most influential poets in the American canon.< Less

More > desolation, abandonment, or optimism - collectively directing attention [and often times obsession] to any context which no longer resemble a previous image of itself.

Decline’s siblings – degradation, disaster, abandonment, and contamination – all make cameos throughout the volume.

This project of "balikbayan" (homecoming) unfolds through poems and graphics--in-progress spanning four decades of exile. It seeks to map one emigre's itinerary through terrains of... More > disruption and dislocation. Written in English and in Filipino (with translations into Chinese, Russian, German, French, Spanish, Italian), these traces of the writer's journey strive to foreground the ordeals of deterritorialization shared by all colonized peoples--a universal experience given a local habitation and name in the trajectory of this flight in search of passages to uncharted shores. Less a Baedeker for remembering or reaching a destination, this palimpsest of tropes/signs hopes to construct zones of departure for discovering new territory built out of a history of collective sacrifices grounding our dreams and desires. Exile is the name for this material process of renewal and liberation--love for whoever is returning, the beloved fulfilling the promise of redemption in the birth pangs of revolutionary struggle.< Less

More > counterforces to the martial law the poem has been written under, in this time of Iraq incursion that touches every aspect of our lives. Smith sends out these poems like bulletins to his heroes, his confreres, his girlfriends, his dead; in the serial form pioneered by Jack Spicer, John Ashbery, Robin Blaser, and Larry Kearney, the tropes rumble like card tricks—Spicer’s forests, diamonds, Giants and knights advance and retreat across a musical chessboard. If there was no one else writing poetry in all of the Bay Area, we would still be “covered”; with Logan Ryan Smith at bat we’ll see angels in the outfield. —Kevin Killian< Less
