Augusta, is an elegant young flutist preparing for her debut at Town Hall. In this splendid comedy, she is joined by a cast of wonderfully absurd characters--her husband, his father, her ex-lover, a nightclub stripper, a peeping Tom, and a canary. Within the scope of these characters, the author reflects on love, marriage, family, art, and captures the way men and women relate--or fail to relate--to one another

God's loud hand : poems by Kelly Cherry( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 224 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

If religious poetry may be thought of as a great river fed, in the English language, by two main streams - the devotional tradition, leading in recent times to Anne Sexton and John Berryman, and the contrastingly philosophical tradition, exemplified by William Blake - it is to the latter that this new book by Kelly Cherry belongs. In the poems of God's Loud Hand, Cherry conducts - often not at all devotionally, often with an honesty that precludes the emphasis on self that tends to be present in devotional poetry ("Lord save me," "Lord forgive me," "Lord help me") - a metaphorical investigation of theological ideas. These are fiercely intellectual poems, which, in the way of T.S. Eliot, are more akin in their stringent analysis to Tillich or Niebuhr, perhaps, than to someone like Simone Weil. At their base is a willingness to ask Abraham's great question, "Shall not the Judge of all the earth judge wisely?"
Sick and full of burning by Kelly Cherry( Book )

6 editions published between 1974 and 1999 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is there any hope for a hypereducated thirty-year-old med student who would like nothing better than to be taken seriously sexually? That's what Mary "Tennessee" Settleworth, the dislocated heroine of this unsettling and wryly comic first novel, is wondering. Tennessee, a native of Knoxville, is an all-around heretic: a Southerner who's happier up North; a Christian who favors Pelagius and free will over Augustine and original sin; a lady of urgent passions who has had no carnal engagements for a year. She has finally gone so far as to write for a men's magazine an article titled "Sexual Inmat

In the wink of an eye : a novel by Kelly Cherry( Book )

6 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in English and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This tale is about a revolution--a small, upstart, none-too-promising revolution--that succeeds too well. A band of inept guerrillas in the Bolivain backcountry has modest ambitions to take over the hungle-ridden province of Santa Cruz, a place no one else wants. Before the story is half over a shady german industrialist, with an obsession for big deals and big women, devises a cheme to expand the revolt into a takeover of all of South America. The President of the United States
Hazard and prospect : new and selected poems by Kelly Cherry( Book )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 184 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lyrical beauty and power, imposing metaphor, and thought both deep and precise are hallmarks of Kelly Cherry's poetry, on view in Hazard and Prospect: New and Selected Poems. With a dazzling mastery and range of tone, technique, form, and ideas, Cherry presents a lifetime of powerful writing that coheres into a single, seamless work. In it she responds to the natural world, to philosophical dilemmas, to spiritual longing, to political, ethical, and aesthetic questions, and, most powerfully, to love and loss. She shows us in sometimes searing poems where the hazards lie, and in transcendent verse a new, bright prospect, a "green place" on a farm in Virginia where time slows and holds and happiness abides

The retreats of thought : poems by Kelly Cherry( Book )

6 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book-length sonnet sequence, Kelly Cherry explores the philosophical domain, addressing classic questions, raising new ones, and sometimes doing philosophy in fourteen lines. A former philosophy student in graduate school, she retains a deep love of philosophical inquiry and maintains that our lives are intimately bound to the philosophical choices we make. Conscious study of our choices, Cherry believes, can lead to greater freedom. Passionate, skeptical, witty, and sometimes wry, these succinct poems concern themselves with very large matters--the nature of time, the definitions of go

The life and death of poetry : poems by Kelly Cherry( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Winner of the 2013 L.E. Phillabaum Poetry AwardIn her ninth collection of poetry, Kelly Cherry explores the domain of language. Clear and accessible, the poems in The Life and Death of Poetry examine the intricacies and limitations of communication and its ability to help us transcend our world and lives. The poet begins with silence and animal sound before taking on literature, public discourse, and the particular art of poetry. The sequence ""Welsh Table Talk"" considers the unsaid, or unsayable, as a man, his daughter, and his daughter's friend sojourn on Bardsey Island in
