The Yeats brothers and modernism's love of motion by Calvin Bedient( Book )

6 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Yeats Brothers and Modernism's Love of Motion, Calvin Bedient delivers a brilliant exploration of Modernism through the mutual illumination provided by Ireland's greatest poet and greatest painter. By examining the poems of the one and the paintings of the other, he recovers an often overlooked quality both artists embraced in their work - that core feature of Modernism, a thoroughgoing preoccupation with motion and fluidity, that terrifying encounter with the universe conceptualized as force. Bedient's is the first book to treat W.B. Yeats and Jack Yeats as twin geniuses in the detection and representation of chaos. William Butler Yeats's love and fear of motion pervade every aspect of his poetry, helping to determine his themes, riddle his images, and shape the cadences of his verse. Jack Yeats's focus on change and motion caused him to engage with the crosscurrents of his time, not - as sometimes thought - to remain locked in the past. Bedient reveals the two artists to have been complicit with Modernism - against homogeneity, alert to divisions, polyphony, and restlessness in things and in ourselves. Adept in close discussion of poetic and painterly style, and magisterial in his grasp of theorists from Adorno through Zizek, Bedient provides us with genuinely new interpretations of the Yeats brothers' work, and with a more sophisticated understanding of Modernism. -- Publisher description

The multiple by Calvin Bedient( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An unspeakably excessive reality is met with unremitting intensity in this collection of poetry<U+2014>the imbroglio of entwinements and failed copulas within and around humankind compose the “multiple” in question, the reality underlying and giving lie to society<U+2019>s stereotypes. Witty, multitonal, musical, propositional, and painterly, the poems interweave personal narrative with political crises and make no effort to take the edge off the razor-sharp examination of the contemporary sociopolitical situation that takes shape throughout the collection. What emerges in the lines is as surprising and unforgiving as it is disarmingly delightful, creating an engaging lyricism that appeals to philosophy as well as literature." --Amazon

The totality for kids by Joshua Clover( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Totality for Kids is the second collection of poems by Joshua Clover, whose debut, Madonna anno domini, won the Walt Whitman award from the Academy of American Poets. This volume takes as its subject the troubled sleep of late modernity, from the grandeur and failure of megacities to the retreats and displacements of the suburbs. The power of crowds and architecture commingles with the alienation and idleness of the observer, caught between "the brutal red dream/Of the collective" and "the parade/Of the ideal citizen." The book's action takes place in these gaps, "dead spaces beside the endlessly grieving stream." The frozen tableau of the spectacle meets its double in the sense that something is always about to happen. Political furies and erotic imaginings coalesce and escape within a welter of unmoored allusions, encounters, citations, and histories, the dreams possible within the modern's excess of signification--as if to return revolutionary possibility to the regime of information by singing it its own song
