The Collage Poems of Drafts are two sequenced works for reading and looking that move back and forth across the porous border between language and image. These mixed media constructions join the whole long poem project by DuPlessis with a particular flair for juxtaposition and evocativeness beyond and within language.

Phenomenology and the Late Twentieth-Century American Long Poem reads major figures including Charles Olson, Lyn Hejinian, Nathaniel Mackey, Susan Howe and Rachel Blau DuPlessis within a new approach to the long poem tradition. Through a series of contextualised close readings, it explores the ways in which American poets developed their poetic forms by engaging with a variety of European phenomenologists, including Hannah Arendt, Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Martin Heidegger, Emmanuel Levinas and Jacques Derrida. Consolidating recent materials on the role of Continental Philosophy in American poetics, this book explores the theoretical and historical contexts in which avant-garde poets have developed radically new methods of making poems long. Matthew Carbery offers a timely commentary on a number of major works of American poetry whilst providing ground-breaking research into the wider philosophical context of late twentieth-century poetic experimentation.

Jewish art has always been with us, but so has a broader canvas of Jewish imaginings: in thought, in emotion, in text, and in ritual practice. Imagining the Jewish God was there in the beginning, as it were, engraved and embedded in the ways Jews lived and responded to their God.This book attempts to give voice to these diverse imaginings of the Jewish God, and offers these collected essays and poems as a living text meant to provoke a substantive and nourishing dialogue. A responsive, living covenant lies at the heart of this book—a covenantal reciprocity that actively engages the dynamics of Jewish thinking and acting in dialogue with God. The contributors to this volume are committed to this form of textual reasoning, even as they all move us beyond the “text” as foundational for the imagined “people of the book.” That people, we submit, lives and breathes in and beyond the texts of poetry, narrative, sacred literature, film, and graphic mediums. We imagine the Jewish people, and the covenant they respond to, as provocative intimations of the divine. The essays in this volume seek to draw these vocal intimations out so that we can all hear their resonant call.

The Oxford Handbook of Modern and Contemporary American Poetry gives readers a cutting-edge introduction to the kaleidoscopic world of American poetry over the last century. Offering a comprehensive approach to the debates that have defined the study of American verse, the twenty-five original essays contained herein take up a wide array of topics: the influence of jazz on the Beats and beyond; European and surrealist influences on style; poetics of the disenfranchised; religion and the national epic; antiwar and dissent poetry; the AIDS epidemic; digital innovations; transnationalism; hip hop; and more. Alongside these topics, major interpretive perspectives such as Marxist, psychoanalytic, disability, queer, and ecocritcal are incorporated. Throughout, the names that have shaped American poetry in the period--Ezra Pound, Wallace Stevens, Marianne Moore, Mina Loy, Sterling Brown, Hart Crane, William Carlos Williams, Posey, Langston Hughes, Allen Ginsberg, John Ashbery, Rae Armantrout, Larry Eigner, and others--serve as touchstones along the tour of the poetic landscape.

Edgar Allan Poe, arguing that brevity and intensity were the essence of poetry, declared there was no such thing as a long poem. It can also be said there is no difference between a short and a long poem except duration: a measure of time. Time in Time examines what the difference really is, and investigates the interplay of short and long forms in contemporary poetry. Moving beyond the opposition of lyric and experimental schools, Time in Time constructs a history of recent North American efforts to bring about a more open poetic form. Contributors explore ways in which the work of Louis Zukofsky, William Carlos Williams, Jackson Mac Low, George Oppen, Hannah Weiner, A.R. Ammons, Marjorie Perloff, Erín Moure, Ron Silliman, and Kenneth Goldsmith reconceives, reframes, and sometimes interknits the possibilities of short and long poems. In doing so, the collection offers insight into the affiliative networks and inter-generational lines of avant-gardism on the continent. Attuned to the surprising reversals and unstable categories of the period, Time in Time illuminates the ongoing encounter of literary creativity with the limits and possibilities of form. Contributors include Adam Dickinson (Brock University), Kerry Doyle (York University), Rachel Blau DuPlessis (Temple University), Steve McCaffery (SUNY Buffalo), Erín Moure (Montreal), Michael O'Driscoll (University of Alberta) Jennifer Russo (City University of New York Graduate Center), and J. Mark Smith (Grant MacEwan University).

With the publication of this book, Charles Tomlinson's edition of Williams's Selected Poems, New Directions has introduced a gathering larger and more comprehensive than the original 1963 edition. Opening with Professor Tomlinson's superbly clear and helpful introduction this selection reflects the most up-to-date Williams scholarship. In addition to including many more pieces, Tomlinson has organized the whole in chronological order. "It isn't what he [the poet] says that counts as a work of art," Williams maintained, "it's what he makes, with such intensity of purpose that it lives with an intrinsic movement of its own to verify its authenticity."

¿Think like a man of action, act like a man of thought,¿ says H. Louis Bergson. This small book collects some ideas, hints and methods in various aspects of art and literature. You will find novel ideas for experimental literature, new genre of poems and countless other things about nothing. If for nothing else, the (random) sentences listed here at least can stimulate further thoughts and ideas ¿ for instance, young writers and artists may find plenty of interesting ideas for their next literary work (or best-selling novels) in `Experimental Literature¿ section. In a sense, this book itself is an experimental one. Needless to say, the readers may find that some of these ideas are quite absurd or seemingly outlandish, just like the idea of `improper¿ courses in Umberto¿s Foucault Pendulum, where the personages discuss possibility to teach absurd courses such as `City planning for Gypsies¿ etc.I started to write down such ideas since I was a high school student and continue even today - I always bear with me a small pen and small notebook where I write in the plane, or driving my car, or even in class room. But I hope that despite three decades of postponement, this small book will keep on inspiring the reader, as good ideas will always be worth to ponder.

Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. Following the 26-year poetic odyssey of her long poem Drafts, Rachel Blau DuPlessis invites readers, with DAYS AND WORKS, to embark with her on not just one but a plurality of voyages. In 2014, drawing on a 1914 translation of Hesiod's Works and Days appearing at the beginning of World War I, DuPlessis began to write, bent on dealing--as did Hesiod--with the insoluble oddity of being in the world and in our time. Both works are built of evocative awe and practical "life" advice, in which conflicting sensations of the textures of historical time, personal time, cosmological time all fold together, in all their contradictions and vectors of stimuli--desired and painful. DuPlessis's work, with rips of feeling, newspaper clippings, and senses of historical fate, represents the oddity of all these registers involving us in different emotional twists. How can so many opposite things and washes of multiple emotions occupy the same daily space? Are these movements through the highly saturated consciousness of modern life "a lexicon? A listing, a relocation?" DuPlessis answers in both form and language--with a sense of the generative and constant "between" in this work expanding the everyday into a mini-encyclopedic poem on an intimate scale. The text offers an evocative political poetics including feminist, eco- poetical and anti-war thinking. It is an intense and generous book.

Young Knowledge presents for the first time a full chronological record of the poems of Robin Hyde, a New Zealand writer active in the 1930s whose full achievement is only now being recognised. Drawing on the 500 poems extant Michele Leggott has chosen 300 divided into five sections. Her aim is to arrive at a better understanding of the 15 years of massive production which shaped the poet and which may be her major literary work. Young Knowledge shows Robin Hyde's growth as a poet, her response to the painful events of her life and to the political and social world around her. The poems are remarkable both for their acute observation of the physical and emotional world and for their powerful prophetic and visionary elements. The introduction and notes to Young Knowledge (available here: www.nzepc.auckland.ac.nz/authors/hyde) make this an authoritative and comprehensive text and a brilliant presentation of a great poet. An extra pleasure is the inclusion of five stunning photographs of Robin Hyde, used on the cover and to head each section, which have not previously been known.

From her work's first appearance under the Imagist label to its later development in innovative long poems and prose, H.D.'s excellence was recognized by her peers as well as her successors. H.D. and Poets After is the first book to explore her influence on contemporary American poetry. Twenty essays -- half by eminent American poets writing about their literary engagement with H.D. and half by critics writing about H.D. in relation to these same poets -- provide a fruitful exchange of perceptions and interpretations. The dialogue between these two perspectives -- the first autobiographical testimony and the second critical analysis by scholars attuned to both modern and contemporary poetries and poetics -- calls into question both traditional notions of literary criticism and earlier theories of literary influence. The volume includes a range of contemporary responses to H.D.'s work -- from Alicia Ostriker's radical eroticism to Brenda Hillman's epistemological restlessness to Carolyn Forchs response to moral disasters of the century. H.D. and Poets After demonstrates key aspects of the poet's continuing importance as a "poet's poet" in the best sense.

Poetry. "One of our greatest and most consummate poets, Rachel Blau DuPlessis, offers 80 poems in this collection, closely observing her Self and the planet she inhabits. She asks urgent existential questions 'what life actually is, with anything called / oneself in it,' and she openly expresses her outrage and fury at the current state of the planet. To a 'quotidian apocalypse,' she responds with, I didn't count / on having to deploy this phrase / so soon.' There is an irresistible amalgamation of humor and alarm on these finely designed pages. Remarkably well-intentioned, DuPlessis is always spot on."--Anne Tardos "Around each day, she flies her rounds--tempestuous. DuPlessis revels in travel and records what unravels in one's habits of attention when all the elsewheres return us to a home we are about to lose. 'What is the true story of any time? / any itinerary? / and of its travelling sorrows?' The poems resemble conversations that rise and set, on long journeys, in turns light or rueful, bright or bruised: monologues that trail the trails. The reader listens in, chimes up, takes a draught, like a fellow traveller hurtling and hurting on a tour through the end times. Disarmingly candid, these verses and prose forays document the dread and slow-inching surprise of a terrible lesson--at this catastrophe, we are the sudden turn; at this catastrophe, the earth is overturned every single day. And yet, DuPlessis also remembers to collect the ribbons of sunlight and the laughter she trips upon, through these journeys. I encounter so many moments of startling honesty--each poem is a face as pert as day and as wild as night, looking up, from a labyrinth of drafts."--Divya Victor "Of the worlds we pass through in a day, 80 shine forth here, in the pages of a pilgrim, a meta-Basho with a meta-notebook, who is by turns hilarious, somber, meditative, grieving, charming, and almost effortlessly profound. The 80 worlds are in fact one world, in that an end is coming to them all. (Every day a fresh apocalypse!) Not in a hurry but mindful of time, DuPlessis shares what she sees (earthquakes, fascist rallies, Mt. Fuji) and what she so acutely hears, in heart, in mind, in emails from friends. While taking us through the 80 or 80,000 sights and sounds of a life, she guides us as well through her own deep disquiet, a disquiet that turns out to be both an anxious and an exhilarating place to be. Page after page we travel with her, in the warmth of her company, amid colliding moments and 'marvelous concurrences.'"--Joseph Donahue

Long recognized as a masterpiece of modern American poetry, William Carlos Williams' Paterson is one man's testament and vision, "a humanist manifesto enacted in five books, a grammar to help us live" (Denis Donoghue). Paterson is both a place—the New Jersey city in whom the person (the poet's own life) and the public (the history of the region) are combined. Originally four books (published individually between 1946 and 1951), the structure of Paterson (in Dr. Williams' words) "follows the course of teh Passaic River" from above the great falls to its entrance into the sea. The unexpected Book Five, published in 1958, affirms the triumphant life of the imagination, in spite of age and death. This revised edition has been meticulously re-edited by Christopher MacGowan, who has supplied a wealth of notes and explanatory material.

"Onward: Contemporary Poetry and Poetics" is an anthology of statements on poetics by twenty contemporary North American poets, along with selections from their poetry. The poets collected here represent the forefront of engaged, experimental poetic practice and their statements vary from the extended essay form to collage assemblages of various prose and poetically charged forms. These explorations of poetics lead to intersections of thought and practice, both among themselves, and with other recently published poetry anthologies.

Collage of Myself

drafts of lines, he was also searching for threads of order in what he had written,
structures that would come to shape the poems of the first edition of Leaves of
Grass.

Collage of Myself presents a groundbreaking account of the creative story behind America's most celebrated collection of poems. In the first book length study of Walt Whitman's journals and manuscripts, Matt Miller demonstrates that until approximately 1854 (only a single year before the first publication of Leaves of Grass), Whitman---who once speculated that Leaves would be a novel or a play---was unaware that his ambitions would assume the form of poetry at all. Collage of Myself details Whitman's discovery of a remarkable new creative process that allowed him to transform a diverse array of texts into poems such as "Song of Myself" and "The Sleepers." Whitman embraced an art of fragments that encouraged him to "cut and paste" his lines into ever evolving forms based on what he called "spinal ideas." This approach to language, Miller argues, represents the first major use in the Western arts of the technique later know as collage, an observation with significant ramifications for our reception of subsequent artists and writers. Long before the modernists, Whitman integrated found text and ready made language into a revolutionary formulation of artistic production that anticipates much of what is exciting about modern and postmodern art. Using the Walt Whitman Archive's collection of digital images to study what were previously scattered and inaccessible manuscript pages, Miller provides a breakthrough in our understanding of the great American literary icon.

This book features Eileen Tabios (editor of The Asian Pacific American Journal) discussing the development of a particular poem(s) (featuring early drafts leading to the final draft of a poem) with some of the countkry's leading poets: Meena Alexander, Indran Amirthanayagam, Mei-mei Berssenbrugge, Luis Cabalquinto, Marilyn Chin, Sesshu Foster, Jessica Hagedorn, Kimiko Hahn, Garrett Hongo, Li-Young Lee, Timothy Liu, David Mura, Arthur Sze (who also provides an introductory essay), and John Yau. Black Lightning is the first ever publication of poetry-in-progress articles showcasing Asian American poets. Though the focus of the book is on Asian American poets, Black Lightning is also believed to be the first collection ever of poetry-in-progress articles that actually feature the drafting stages of the subject poems. Thus, is an invaluable addition to creative writing and poetry literature in general.
