Reading the difficulties : dialogues with contemporary American innovative poetry by Thomas Fink( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1,000 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The bold essays that make up Reading the Difficulties offer case studies in and strategies for reading innovative poetry. Definitions of what constitutes innovative poetry are innumerable and are offered from every quarter. Some critics and poets argue that innovative poetry concerns free association (John Ashbery), others that experimental poetry is a "re-staging" of language (Bruce Andrews) or a syntactic and cognitive break with the past (Ron Silliman and Lyn Hejinian). The tenets of new poetry abound. But what of the new reading that such poetry demands? Essays in
Blue heron : poems by Elizabeth Robinson( )

6 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poems in Blue Heron delineate a passage through grief and change. Here, personal loss is continuous with threats to other species and landscapes. In response, Robinson has uprooted the terrain of language, "what / bestows itself from / the almost-invisible / and its stain." If these uprootings are casualties of a poetics seeking to redress imbalance and "pollution," then they are also opportunities to rethink what can exist in the field of poetic language as "roots also quicken, bruise their plural pronouns, lose tune, / forsake terrain by moving through and on it." And so Blue Heron lin

Under that silky roof by Elizabeth Robinson( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The poems of this new collection are concerned with the interplay of domestic life -- its companionship, its fecundity, its losses -- and manifestations of the abstract or, as she has put it, with "the brick floor from which the/kingdom of God extends/or could extend."--Publisher's website
The orphan & its relations by Elizabeth Robinson( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of poems by Elizabeth Robinson circles around and around the place of the individual in relation to an other or Other or others. If human experience is nested in relation, "the braid of bodies that engendered this self," it is also disrupted by "an intimacy that can disassemble and recreate itself" until an uneasy form of empathy emerges from the radical isolation of human introspection." "Using prose poems to suggest the narrative logic of the story, The Orphan & Its Relations takes references from domestic life, myth and folktales, and artworks "to bridge," as Robert Creeley said elsewhere of Robinson's work, "between the physically given world and that other we gloss with words, yet apprehend insistently as the defining presence of our lives themselves.""--BOOK JACKET

Apostrophe by Elizabeth Robinson( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quo anima : innovation and spirituality in contemporary women's poetry( )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Quo Anima studies the poetry of contemporary women poets in relation to spirituality and innovative form. In the past two decades, a lively conversation has taken shape as more and more poets have risked engagement with various forms of mysticism. However, much of the critical response to this work has focused on male writers: there is a critical gap where women poets and the subject of spirituality is concerned. Quo Anima addresses that gap by offering a wide array of responses to women writers who are engaging with questions of spirituality. This anthology is distinctive not only for its subject matter but also because it includes essays, interviews, personal statements, and poems. In addition, all of the contributing authors are poets. The collection considers the work of accomplished poets including (but not limited to) Brenda Hillman, Fanny Howe, Susan Howe, Alice Notley, Cole Swensen, and Cecilia Vicuña, as well as a range of less widely known, yet significant, poets"--
