Immanent visitor : selected poems of Jaime Saenz by Jaime Sáenz( )

16 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,993 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Immanent Visitor is the first English-language translation of the work of Bolivia's greatest and most visionary twentieth-century poet. A poete maudit, Jaime Saenz rejected the conventions of polite society and became a monk in service of his own imagination
The night by Jaime Sáenz( )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2018 in English and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this poem, Jaime Saenz explores the singular themes that possessed him: alcoholism, death, nightmares, identity, otherness, and his love for La Paz. The poem's four movements culminate in some of the most profoundly mystical, beautiful, and disturbing passages of modern Latin American poetry. They are presented here in this faithful and inspired English translation of the Spanish original." "Complete with an introduction by the translators that paints a picture of the poet's life, and an afterword by Luis H. Antezana, a Bolivian literary critic and close friend of Saenz, this bilingual edition is the essential introduction to one of the most visionary and enigmatic poets of the Hispanic world."--Jacket

A question mark above the sun : documents on the mystery surrounding a famous poem "by" Frank O'Hara by Kent Johnson( )

7 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this self-described "thought experiment"'part fiction, part literary detective work, and always daring'Kent Johnson proposes a stunning rewrite of literary history. Satirical and earnest at turns, this is a hybrid book of shifting identities, surmises, impostures, and counterarguments, centered around a provocative speculation
Changing general education curriculum by James L Ratcliff( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This issue is about changing the general education curriculum--in big ways through significant reforms and, more frequently, incremental ways--to accomplish purposes better, connect with students better, and provide a more engaging and intellectually and emotionally compelling common collegiate experience. The chapter authors present the results of a recent national survey on changes in general education: four case studies of institutions that have undertaken change--how they did it, what the constraints were, and most important, what the results were: and discussions on achieving curricular coherence and the nature of change and how to bring it about -- from publisher
Hotel Lautréamont : contemporary poetry from Uruguay( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Homage to the last avant-garde by Kent Johnson( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Homage contains a wide variety of poems and prose, representing all strands of Johnson's work: versions from the Greek, traduced to an extraordinary degree; anti-war poems, overflowing with rage; stink-bombs tossed in the direction of some famous poets, mostly meant in an ironic, joshing way. But not all. And then there are memoir poems of persons met and places visited, that may well be documentary in nature, or may also be artfully disguised. Memory is, after all, an awkward thing, and not to be trusted, just as politicians and their henchmen are not and there is no irony in their treatment in this book. No, sir, none at all."--BOOK JACKET
Materia prima by Amanda Berenguer( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Resist much, obey little : inaugural poems to the resistance( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offers an anthology of resistance poetry that symbolically and actually enacts the oppositional imperatives embedded in its title. This anthology is not intended as an offering of unique, sophisticated *creative writing*, but is first and foremost, a collective, insurgent call that is part and parcel of a sovereign people's challenge to President Trump and his administration. Its pages are bound in direct, literal ways, to the historic worldwide marches of January 22nd--and they stand as evidence that the vast majority of American poets (and artists and writers of all kind) revile the new reactionary dispensation. --Adapted from title's introduction
Joyous young pines : haiku by Kent Johnson( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Araki Yasusada is a kind of literary hoax, also associated with Tosa Motokiyu, who may himself be a fictional figure. It is also unclear whether there is any Japanese that was translated or whether this is original poetry. Cf. Denver quarterly, v. 31, no. 4, pp. 106-126. The person responsible for the interview with Kent Johnson, Groany McGee, "is not real."
