Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An engaging and authoritative introduction to an increasingly important and popular literary genre Prose Poetry is the first book of its kind—an engaging and authoritative introduction to the history, development, and features of English-language prose poetry, an increasingly important and popular literary form that is still too little understood and appreciated. Poets and scholars Paul Hetherington and Cassandra Atherton introduce prose poetry’s key characteristics, chart its evolution from the nineteenth century to the present, and discuss many historical and contemporary prose poems that both demonstrate their great diversity around the Anglophone world and show why they represent some of today’s most inventive writing. A prose poem looks like prose but reads like poetry: it lacks the line breaks of other poetic forms but employs poetic techniques, such as internal rhyme, repetition, and compression. Prose Poetry explains how this form opens new spaces for writers to create riveting works that reshape the resources of prose while redefining the poetic. Discussing prose poetry’ s precursors, including William Wordsworth and Walt Whitman, and prose poets such as Charles Simic, Russell Edson, Lydia Davis, and Claudia Rankine, the book pays equal attention to male and female prose poets, documenting women’s essential but frequently unacknowledged contributions to the genre. Revealing how prose poetry tests boundaries and challenges conventions to open up new imaginative vistas, this is an essential book for all readers, students, teachers, and writers of prose poetry.

Book excerpt: Lesen Sie Spam- und Junkmails? Wenn ja - lassen sich diese Texte zu poetischen Destillaten verarbeiten? Die Autorin Joanna Lisiak hat den Versuch gewagt. Gelesen, ausgelegt, montiert, verdichtet. Bis die Spam Poetry stand. Entlarvend, ehrlich und absurd. Poesie so direkt und ungefiltert, dass sie selbst diejenigen erreichen kann, die sonst keine Lyrik lesen. Die deutsch- und englischsprachigen Texte stehen sich ungezwungen gegenüber. Mit der Zeit treten sie subtil miteinander in einen Dialog, überbieten sich mit Angeboten, trumpfen mit erstaunlichen Geschichten auf. Einzelne Verzweifelte erbitten Hilfe, staatliche Gebilde erwidern bürokratisch, geben abstruse Statements oder profitable Versprechen ab. Die vermeintliche Korrespondenz gibt sich - wie auch im wirklichen World Wide Web - selbstbewusst international. Die Texte fliegen hin und her und fassen den ganzen Globus: von Asien in die USA, von der Elfenbeinküste zurück nach Europa und schaffen es sogar bis zu einer Eisscholle auf dem Nordpol, wo ein Gestrandeter sich zu einem Wal mit lateinischem Akzent erklärt, welcher der Arbeit endgültig abgeschworen hat. Auf Deutsch und Englisch.

Book A Sociological Approach to Poetry Translation

Download or read book A Sociological Approach to Poetry Translation written by Jacob S. D. Blakesley and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2018-10-31 with total page 258 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume provides an in-depth comparative study of translation practices and the role of the poet-translator across different countries and in so doing, demonstrates the need for poetry translation to be extended beyond close reading and situated in context. Drawing on a corpus composed of data from national library catalogues and Worldcat, the book examines translation practices of English-language, French-language, and Italian-language poet-translators through the lens of a broad sociological approach. Chapters 2 through 5 look at national poetic movements, literary markets, and the historical and socio-political contexts of translations, with Chapter 6 offering case studies of prominent and representative poet-translators from each tradition. A comprehensive set of appendices offers readers an opportunity to explore this data in greater detail. Taken together, the volume advocates for the need to study translation data against broader aesthetic, historical, and political trends and will be of particular interest to students and scholars in translation studies and comparative literature.

  • Author : Bob Blaisdell
  • Publisher : Courier Corporation
  • Release : 2005-01-17
  • ISBN : 0486437949
  • Pages : 210 pages

Download or read book Elizabethan Poetry written by Bob Blaisdell and published by Courier Corporation. This book was released on 2005-01-17 with total page 210 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The relative peace and prosperity of the Elizabethan age (1558–1603) fostered the growth of one of the most fruitful eras in literary history. Lyric poetry, prose, and drama flourished in sixteenth-century England in works that blended medieval traditions with Renaissance optimism. This anthology celebrates the wit and imaginative creativity of the Elizabethan poets with a generous selection of their graceful and sophisticated verse. Highlights include sonnets from Astrophel and Stella, written by Sir Philip Sidney — a scholar, poet, critic, courtier, diplomat, soldier, and ideal English Renaissance man; poems by Edmund Spenser, whose works combined romance with allegory, adventure, and morality; and sonnets by William Shakespeare, whose towering poetic genius transcends the ages. Other celebrated contributors include John Donne ("Go, and catch a fallen star"), Ben Jonson ("Drink to me only with thine eyes"), and Christopher Marlowe ("The Passionate Shepherd to His Love"). The poetry of lesser-known figures such as Michael Drayton, Samuel Daniel, and Fulke Greville appears here, along with verses by individuals better known in other fields — Francis Bacon, Queen Elizabeth I, and Walter Raleigh — whose poems offer valuable insights into the spirit of the age.

Book Poetry  A Very Short Introduction

Download or read book Poetry A Very Short Introduction written by Bernard O'Donoghue and published by Oxford University Press. This book was released on 2019-09-26 with total page 143 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Poetry, arguably, has a greater range of conceptual meaning than perhaps any other term in English. At the most basic level everyone can recognise it—it is a kind of literature that uses special linguistic devices of organization and expression for aesthetic effect. However, far grander claims have been made for poetry than this—such as Shelley's that the poets 'are the unacknowledged legislators of the world', and that poetry is 'a higher truth'. In this Very Short Introduction, Bernard O'Donoghue provides a fascinating look at the many different forms of writing which have been called 'poetry'—from the Greeks to the present day. As well as questioning what poetry is, he asks what poetry is for, and considers contemporary debates on its value. Is there a universality to poetry? And does it have a duty of public utility and responsibility? ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

Book Poetry   Barthes

Download or read book Poetry Barthes written by Calum Gardner and published by Poetry and Lup. This book was released on 2018 with total page 232 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What kinds of pleasure do we take from writing and reading? What authority has the writer over a text? What are the limits of language's ability to communicate ideas and emotions? Moreover, what are the political limitations of these questions? The work of the French cultural critic and theorist Roland Barthes (1915-80) poses these questions, and has become influential in doing so, but the precise nature of that influence is often taken for granted. This is nowhere more true than in poetry, where Barthes' concerns about pleasure and origin are assumed to be relevant, but this has seldom been closely examined. This innovative study traces the engagement with Barthes by poets writing in English, beginning in the early 1970s with one of Barthes' earliest Anglophone poet readers, Scottish poet-theorist Veronica Forrest-Thomson (194775). It goes on to examine the American poets who published in L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E and other small but influential journals of the period, and other writers who engaged with Barthes later, considering his writings' relevance to love and grief and their treatment in poetry. Finally, it surveys those writers who rejected Barthes' theory, and explores why this was. The first study to bring Barthes and poetry into such close contact, this important book illuminates both subjects with a deep contemplation of Barthes' work and a range of experimental poetries.
