Dear Angel of Death by Simone White( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Half poems, half prose, 'Dear Angel of Death' braids intimate and public thinking about forms of togetherness. Is one woman a mother, a person in an artworld, a "black"? What imaginary and real spirits are her guides? The title essay proposes disinvestment in the idea of the Music as the highest form of what blackness "is" and includes many forms: philosophical divergence on the problem of folds for black life, a close reading of Nathaniel Mackey's neverending novel 'From a broken bottle traces of perfume still emanate', and an impassioned defense-cum-dismissal of contemporary hip hop's convergence with capitalism."
It's no good by Kirill Medvedev( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Before retiring from the literary world and relinquishing all copyright to his work in 2003, Kirill Medvedev had published two collections of poetry with a traditional publishing house. His poems are autobiographical free verse, unusual in Russia, and were dismissed by some critics as not really poetry. Medvedev's poetry – casual, often explicitly political, irreverent – fiercely diagnoses the banality and disease of Putin-era Russia. Edited and introduced by n+1 co-founder Keith Gessen, It's No Good includes selected poems from Kirill Medvedev's books of poetry and subsequent online publicati
The happy end/All welcome by Mónica de la Torre( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Happy End/ All Welcome is set in a job fair inspired by the Nature Theater of Oklahoma from Kafka’s unfinished novel Amerika: the largest theater company in the world is recruiting all kinds of employees. De la Torre builds, fastens, cuts, pastes, performs, and extrudes a variety of poems to suit this most serious situation comedy: poems as job interviews, poems as postings, poems as questionnaires, reports, speeches, lyrical rants… At its heart, this playful bricolage explores the norms of the workplace and its notions of competence, while tackling office design, performativity, and skilled vs. deskilled creative labor. -- Publisher

Costume en face : a primer of darkness for young boys and girls by Tatsumi Hijikata( Book )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Tatsumi Hijikata (1928-1986) is a founding father of the radical dance form that he called Butoh, whose choreography required dancers to internalize complex and often grotesque images, experiences and perspectives in order to produce precise movements. Though influenced by Western artists and writers--the expressionist dance of Mary Wigman, the writings of Artaud, de Sade, Bataille, and Genet, and the drawings and paintings of Goya, Picasso, Toyen, Beardsley, and others--he was dedicated to the particular experience of the marginalized, Japanese suffering body after World War II. In the mid-1970s, Hijikata became concerned with developing notation for his Butoh, and some of these Butoh-fu notations remain, largely in the form of notebooks transcribed by his disciples. Costume en Face is the first publication of one of Hijikata's notebook notations in either English or Japanese. In it we can see, for the first time, the profound interconnectedness of language and body in Hijikata's process of composition"--Publisher's website (viewed March 16, 2015)
I remember nightfall by Marosa Di Giorgio( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jeannine Pitas's new translation of Marosa di Giorgio, one of Uruguay's most famous poets, includes four book-length poems from the middle of her career: The History of Violets (1965); Magnolia (1968); The War of the Orchards (1971); and The Native Garden is in Flames (1975). Occupying the same childhood landscapes that may be familiar to English-language readers from the previously published volume The History of Violets (UDP, 2010), these serial prose poems explore memory, familial relationships, erotic desire, and war. Marosa di Giorgio uses the recurring setting of a garden as a stage for the ongoing encounter of nature and the supernatural. This is a bilingual edition, with cover art by Basil King."Publisher's website (viewed 08/15/2017)
