Days And Nights Of San Miguel, Marianne Rogoff Dec 2009

Days And Nights Of San Miguel, Marianne Rogoff

Marianne Rogoff

"Continuity
Roosters crow and the plaza comes to life every morning with newsboys, tourists, pigeons and grackles, prayers of the pilgrims, the balloon man, the cigarette lady, the horse with his blinders. Men stride through dressed for business in fresh-shined shoes. Cement façades are yellow gold, burnt red/orange, and keep still as clouds drift across the sun and shadows hover, persist. Rays of light fall from the sky, which is deep blue where it is not white with giant cumulus puffs. Black rain clouds move in, threatening, wind blows balloon streamers, smoke rises from tortilla barbecues, heads turn upward ...

To See The Earth, Philip Metres Dec 2007

To See The Earth, Philip Metres

Philip Metres

To See the Earth navigates the increasingly turbulent waters of a globalized world—from Moscow to Chicago, from Philadelphia to Ramallah. Metres renders in vivid language what Fredric Jameson called “cognitive mapping” —a kind of “situational representation on the part of the individual subject to the vaster and properly unrepresentable totality.”To See the Earth travels to Russia, memorializes immigrant Arab American family life in a Brooklyn brownstone, witnesses to the violence visited upon people both at home and abroad, and carves out of such losses images of hope —the birthing not of a terrible beauty, but of the “dreaming ...


The Place Where You Lie: A Reading Of James Wright's To The Muse, Chard Deniord Dec 2007

The Place Where You Lie: A Reading Of James Wright's To The Muse, Chard Deniord

Chard deNiord

Despite James Wright's sustained popularity and the critical attention he has received since his death in 1980, his 1968 poem “To the Muse” has been the subject of little detailed analysis. The speaker of the poem gives voice to a host of extreme emotions and thoughts that range from human unknowing and agony to unrestrained protest illuminating madness. Few other contemporary love poems explore the grieving lover's state with commensurate economy and intensity. The full text of the poem and a close textual analysis are included.

French Connections, Christine Gelineau (Ed.), Chard Deniord May 2007

French Connections, Christine Gelineau (Ed.), Chard Deniord

Chard deNiord

This anthology began with an innuendo: the unnamed advisor to President George W. Bush who was quoted in the New York Times in 2004 as saying of Massachusetts’ senator John Kerry . . . that Kerry “looks French.” This was not intended as a compliment.

. . . what does it mean to look – or to sound – French . . . or more specifically, Franco-American? Even just thinking casually about this question highlighted the issue . . . for the majority of Americans, if the term itself brought any image to mind, it was likely a red-and-white can of bland spaghetti. . . why is Franco-American so occult an identity in America?

The vision ...


Behind The Lines: War Resistance Poetry On The American Homefront Since 1941, Philip Metres Dec 2006

Behind The Lines: War Resistance Poetry On The American Homefront Since 1941, Philip Metres

Philip Metres

Behind the Lines investigates American war resistance poetry from the Second World War through the Iraq wars. Rather than simply chronicling the genre, Philip Metres argues that this poetry gets to the heart of who is authorized to speak about war and how it can be represented. As such, he explores a largely neglected area of scholarship: the poet’s relationship to dissenting political movements and the nation. In his elegant study, Metres examines the ways in which war resistance is registered not only in terms of its content but also at the level of the lyric. He proposes that ...
