Letter to an imaginary friend by Thomas McGrath( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An epic poem on America by a late poet. "And I am only a device of memory / To call forth into this Present the flowering dead and the living / To enter the labyrinth and blaze the trail for the enduring journey / Toward the rounddance and commune of light ..."
Carolee Schneemann : uncollected texts by Carolee Schneemann( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Uncollected Texts' draws together a number of Carolee Schneemann's earliest writings - many exceedingly rare and several publishered here for the first time - ranging from letters to the editor to dream journals, film criticism, satirical poems, detailed discussions of her art, and pointed feminist critiques. Dating from the mid-1950s to the early 1980s, the writings gathered in this volume shed light on some of Schneemann's most important artistic achievements, including her most famous 'kinetic theater' piece, 'Meat Joy'; anti-Vietnam War works such as 'Snows'; the multimedia performance 'Up to and Including Her Limits'; and the double-screen film 'Kitch's Last Meal'. Frequently referencing one another, the assembled writings create a densely interwoven tapestry of cross-references that provide unique insights into Schneemann's artistic development while also foregrounding the artist's uniquely poetic style."

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 72 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)
Commodore by Jacqueline Waters( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Commodore, Waters' third poetry collection, is a book about care, both the two-way street of it and the hierarchy created by it. Or it's about coming very close to your subject, intent on discerning shades of sentiment, full of nostalgia for things you didn't really enjoy when they happened, concerned care might be an exploitable weakness, even as its cultivation becomes the only way to attract the mercy you will inevitably require... ."--Publisher's website (viewed 10/24/2017)
This window makes me feel by Robert Fitterman( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in the long shadow of 9/11, This Window Makes Me Feel replaces the individual poet's response to catastrophe with a collective, multi-vocal chorus of everyday articulations. Never before published in its entirety, This Window... is one of the earliest examples of a long poem solely composed with repurposed web language."--Page 4 of cover
Levon Helm by Jason Morris( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The champ by Kenward Elmslie( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defense of the idol by Omar Cáceres( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Branded a 'poète maudit' for the cryptic circumstances surrounding his life and death, Omar Cáceres once tried to destroy all copies of his one and only book. The myth around him survived thanks to the inclusion of fifteen poems from Defense of the Idol in the groundbreaking anthology Antología de poesía chilena nueva from 1935. Presented here for the first time in English translation, along with the sole foreword Vicente Huidobro ever wrote for a poet, the poems of Cáceres possess a ghostly, metaphysical energy combined with modern-age imagery: bows pulsate, moons hurtle, rains sing, trees drag their shadows in drunk stupors, winds break the sky open. But the interior life of the poet assumes dominance, interrogated through anguished, turbulent dreamscapes of language."--Publisher's website (viewed 2018 July 25)
Feeling upon arrival by Saretta Morgan( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inspired by the potential of space to order experiences of time and desire, the language in 'Feeling upon arrival' turns between orienting device and sensual index. Characters emerge and disperse as gestures across a queered and somatic geography in pursuit of the bodies present landscapes deny."
Orange by Christine Herzer( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Orange is concerned with space-making. Orange contains declarations ("Poets are containers. Containers deserve respect") and language-situations, including the hire of a professional lover to address money issues. Reading Orange might impact the way you experience words such as 'fridge', 'fear', 'toast', and 'handwash'. If Orange had a texture it would be soft. If you believe that feelings smell, Orange might be for you. Sometimes a color can hold a space that is otherwise shadowed/obscured/unknowable."--Publisher's website (viewed 2018 June 12)
