Romantic Criminals By Karlanna Lewis
eBook (ePub): $7.99
With Romantic Criminals, Karlanna Lewis’ surrealistic poetry glides between the American West and East and Western and Eastern Europe—all the while keeping a consistent dancing beat.... More > Merging even more borders than her previous collection, Cante de Gitanas de Luz / Songs of the Gypsies with Names of Light, Lewis’ poetry is mysterious yet personal. The poetic images are familiar, but twisted. A common theme is the human body, but taken to new possibilities, as with the “tongues so long we/ wrapped them around our heads for hair” in the poem “Tea Dippers.” Just as fantastical are the pen and ink drawings accompanying every poem, focusing on strange relations. We connect to both the poems and illustrations, and at the same time, our imaginations are stirred by their small hints of absurdity.< Less
Cante de Gitanas con Nombres de Luz / Songs of the Gypsies with Names of Light By Karlanna Lewis
eBook (PDF): $9.19
Cante de Gitanas con Nombres de Luz / Songs of the Gypsies with Names of Light is a collection of Karlanna Lewis' poems inspired by flamenco cante of Andalucía. Each is accompanied by her... More > original surrealist ink drawings. In the style of flamenco singers, Lewis treats traditional themes with an individualistic edge. In "Fable in the Castilian Dialect" she writes "tell me the fable of a good/time, of the fan of a dotted skirt and what/we wore after, of the dancer’s hips and how/they determined the rest of our lives" (l. 2-5). Lewis' bizarre & unique poetry embodies sadness & love. With titles ranging from "Jeraldo with the Dinosaur Wings" to "Spanish Dancer at Rest" to "Questions for a Merman" Lewis' poetry is never predictable. She has an odd obsession with bicycles & miniature people, & a special attention to detail in the art. Light & beauty & grief & longing are interwoven in Lewis' poems, their rhythm drawing the reader near as the crowd at an intimate flamenco tableau.< Less
