Small Press Verse & Poeticonjectures

Author: Alessio Zanelli

Publisher: Xlibris Corporation

ISBN: 1462843441

Category: Poetry

Page: 156

‘Mr. Zanelli’s native tongue is Italian. Within just a few years after learning English he began to compose poetry in this foreign language. I can only imagine how hard it must be to gather the thoughts and sensations that are required to write and translate them into external and removed groups of sounds ... English words. Because of this I read each poem with a sense of wonder.’ —Lisa Kaufman (Poetic Voices) ‘ ... the dense, allusive, vivid pleasures I have championed in Alessio’s more recent work ... ’ —Chris J. Heyworth (Breathe Poetry Magazine) ‘Alessio Zanelli is an Italian poet with a masterful command of the English language.’ —Lynne Jones (Gentle Reader Poetry) Small Press Verse & Poeticonjectures is Alessio Zanelli’s second book of poetry, containing all the poems that appeared in paper or web magazines and anthologies during the triennium 2000-2002, plus a solid batch of selected previously unpublished works. Compared with the ones in his first collection Loose Sheets, some of which are also included in the present volume, these latest poems evidence the author’s much improved skill in manipulating the English language in both its classical and modern, idiomatic usage. In parallel, and suggestively again, Zanelli’s lyrical verse aspires to reinforce the background image of his feeling a citizen of the world, though firmly attached to his roots. Not less captivating sounds the author’s original voice, in which he is able to treat the great and little themes of life, to depict his inner fancied world, as well as to confront and subdue man’s latent, ancestral, metaphysical fear of existence, regarded as being a miniscule dot within something immeasurably and unaccountably vaster. What is then softly and gradually brought to light is a cosmic scene behind the fate of men that renders all of human endeavors and dreams ineluctably worthwhile, whatever birthplace, period, culture and faith may be.

Literary Nonfiction. "You run a WHAT?" A small press. Yes, this is the dream of those who don't give a damn about mainstream literature, major presses and millionfold print runs. It is the nirvana to everyone interested in a mindful and loving acquaintance with books. This is not a basic guide, it is a fun and inspiring glance at the inner depth of a small press. With enthusiasm and distinctness the publisher gives advice on everything from networking to handling the scripts to creating and selling a book. Kristian Carlsson founded Smockadoll Förlag [Smockadoll Press] and decided to publish contemporary poetry. In 2012 Smockadoll was featured by the news agency TT/Spektra as one of a handful of today's unsurpassed Swedish small presses for translated literature. During the years Kristian Carlsson most certainly has had time to break each and every one of the small press guidelines issued in this volume.

Die Welt voran

Author: László Krasznahorkai

Publisher: S. Fischer Verlag

Category: Fiction

Page: 416

»Die Universalität von Krasznahorkais Blick zerstreut alle Zweifel an der zeitgenössischen Literatur.« W. G. Sebald Dem Zauber des Beginns ist immer schon der Schrecken des Endes eingeschrieben. Von den europäischen Schriftstellern seiner Generation hat keiner dies so deutlich erfahren wie der ungarische Autor und europäische Weltbürger László Krasznahorkai. In seinem Werk, das im Moment eine aufsehenerregende Rezeption im angelsächsischen Raum erfährt, wird eine so betörend luzide wie düstere Karte unserer Gegenwart gezeichnet. Das leuchtende Dunkel Becketts, in dem er sich mit Kafkas Kompass bewegt, steht auch hinter den Erzählungen seines neuen Buches ›Die Welt voran‹, das durch die Musikalität seiner Sprache und die Eindringlichkeit seiner Bilder zur Widerspiegelung einer beinah geretteten Welt wird.

Avant-Folk: Small Press Poetry Networks from 1950 to the Present

Author: Ross Hair

Publisher: Oxford University Press

ISBN: 1781383731

Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 288

View: 3525

Avant-Folk is the first comprehensive study of a loose collective of important British and American poets, publishers, and artists (including Lorine Niedecker, Ian Hamilton Finlay, and Jonathan Williams) and the intersection of folk and modernist, concrete and lyric poetics within the small press poetry networks that developed around these figures from the 1950s up to the present day. Avant-Folk argues that the merging of the demotic with the avant-garde is but one of the many consequences of a particularly vibrant period of creative exchange when this network of poets, publishers, and artists expanded considerably the possibilities of small press publishing. Avant-Folk explores how, from this still largely unexplored body of work, emerge new critical relations to place, space, and locale. Paying close attention to the transmission of demotic cultural expressions, this study of small press poetry networks also revises current assessments regarding the relationship between the cosmopolitan and the regional and between avant-garde and vernacular, folk aesthetics. Readers of Avant-Folk will gain an understanding of how small press publishing practices have revised these familiar terms and how they reconceive the broader field of twentieth-century British and American poetry.

Confessions of a Small Press Racketeer

Author: Stuart Ross

Publisher: N.A


Category: Literary Criticism

Page: 127

View: 2236

'Confessions of a Small Press Racketeer' is equal parts literary memoir, advice for the emerging writer, and reckless tirade. Ross has been active in the Canadian literary underground for a quarter of a century: he's sold thousands of his books in the streets, published and edited magazines, trained insurgents in his Poetry Boot Camps, and started Canada's first Small Press Book Fair. Where the media focusses only on the glamorous literary lives of its few superstars, Ross gives us a glimpse into How Writers Really Live. In 'Confessions', he declares himself the King of Poetry, explores his floundering Jewish identity, wanders into the best bookstore in Canada, offers a crash course in avoiding writing, pisses off his publishers, runs a renegade Canada booth at the International Book Fair in Managua, and begs egomaniacal young writers to stop bugging the hell out of him. Many of these essays are culled from Ross's bimonthly "Hunkamooga" column in 'Word: Toronto's Literary Calendar'. Others are written specifically for this collection." 'Confessions of a Small Press Racketeer' is a wonderful book - funny, outrageous, and acute. I'll even say it's the best short-essay collection aout writing life that I've read in ages." - Canadian Literature
