The necropastoral : poetry, media, occults by Joyelle McSweeney( )

8 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 543 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Necropastoral: Poetry, Media, Occults, poet Joyelle McSweeney presents an ecopoetics and a theory of Art that reflect such biological principles as degradation, proliferation, contamination, and decay. In these ambitious, bustling essays, McSweeney resituates poetry as a medium amid media; hosts "strange meetings" of authors, texts, and artworks across the boundaries of genre, period, and nation; and examines such epiphenomena as translation, anachronism, and violence. Through readings of artists as diverse as Wilfred Owen, Andy Warhol, Harryette Mullen, Roberto Bolano, Aime Cesaire, and Georges Bataille, The Necropastoral shows by what strategies art persists amid lethal conditions as a spectacular, uncanny force"--

Flet : a novel by Joyelle McSweeney( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flet goes down in a spaced-out, delimited future in which all cities have been evacuated after an oft-invoked "Emergency." As the decentralized citizenry brings on the endless, aimless filetape transmissions draining into their homes, our eponymous heroin, a quiescent-but-full-of-agency Administration flunky, is poignantly alone in her suspicion that the Emergency is a tool of sociopolitical manipulation, if not oppression. A face-off between this tentative muckraker and her icy superior is inevitable at the mandatory, nationwide Reenactment, in advance of which Flet finds herself dreaming and driving endlessly off the map. Will she find the missing cities, or will she lose herself in the flood-tide of images that wash over the Nation? -- Book cover

Poems
Toxicon and Arachne by Joyelle McSweeney( Book )

6 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Toxicon & Arachne, McSweeney allows the lyric to course through her like a toxin, producing a quiver of lyrics like poisoned arrows. Toxicon was written in anticipation of the birth of McSweeney?s daughter, Arachne. But when Arachne was born sick, lived briefly, and then died, McSweeney unexpectedly endured a second inundation of lyricism, which would become the poems in Arachne, this time spun with grief. Toxicon & Arachne is the culmination of eight years of engagement with lyric under a regime of global and personal catastrophes

In extremis : on poetry, subversion & violence( Visual )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this dynamic conversation (interspersed with readings), three poets, critics and editors ask: What does contemporary poetry gain--and what does it lose--by seeking its own extremes, or trying to violate its own bounds? What are the connections--or contradictions--between the way we imagine innovation, and the way we imagine violence? When do we want new poets to sound or look or be revolutionary, or subversive, or aggressive, and when do we want something else? Why do these questions seem salient now, and for whom? And what do they have to do with the creative decisions made by critics, by translators, and by editors, both in the United States and internationally?

Winesburg, Indiana : a fork river anthology by Valerie Sayers( )

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

In the mythical town of Winesburg, Indiana, there lives a cleaning lady who can conjure up the ghost of Billy Sunday, a lascivious holy man with an unusual fetish and a burgeoning flock, a park custodian who collects the scat left by aliens, and a night janitor learning to live with life's mysteries, including the zombies in the cafeteria. Winesburg, Indiana, is a town full of stories of plans made and destroyed, of births and unexpected deaths, of remembered pasts and unexplored presents told to the reader by as interesting a cast of characters as one is likely to find in small town America. Brought to life by a lively group of Indiana writers, Winesburg, Indiana, is a place to discover something of what it means to be alive in our hyperactive century from stories that are deeply human, sometimes melancholy, and often damned funny
