James Galvin is introduced by Natasha Sajé who is professor of English and director of the Anne Newman Sutton Weeks poetry Series at Westminster College. Galvin teaches at the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop and also works his 650 acre ranch in Wyoming. Sajé praises his book X:Poetry and notes that it is highly praised by other writers. She states, "In James Galvin's poetry, art and human emotions are balanced so well that the poems work through the reader instead of on the reader." She also notes that "his poems are addressed to two entities, a natural and human one, and they both reverberate" which "reveals his affinity with nature." Sajé also praises his two novels, The Meadow and Fencing the Sky. Galvin then reads the following poems, some new and some published: "Reading the Will," "Blue or Green," "Orbit Obit," "Fable," "Freud Spelled Backwards," "Girl Without Her Nightgown," "Trying to Live These Days," "The Music," "The Members of the Board," "World News," "Winter Solstice Full Moon at Perigee," "Splinters of the True Cross," "The Uncertainty Principle," "Two Horses and a Dog," "Meteorology," and "Sociology." Throughout the reading Galvin makes comments about what prompted him to write some of the poems and other insights into his writing

Bright brave phenomena : poems by Amanda Nadelberg( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"What we have here is a lovely collection of Nadelberg inventions. These inventions are for telling it like it is. In order to do this they variously prick your arm, burn down, protest, pretend, and dance, to name just a few. ... These are indeed very Bright Brave Phenomena, that's right."?Rod Smith By turns disarmingly droll and hysterically sad, Amanda Nadelberg's singular use of everyday language transports us into a world where uncanny juxtaposition and unabashed repetition engender entirely new meanings.--amazon.com
