Description :


African-American expressive arts draw upon multiple traditions of formal experimentation in the service of social change. Within these traditions, Jennifer D. Ryan demonstrates that black women have created literature, music, and political statements signifying some of the most incisive and complex elements of modern American culture. Post-Jazz Poetics: A Social History examines the jazz-influenced work of five twentieth-century African-American women poets: Sherley Anne Williams, Sonia Sanchez, Jayne Cortez, Wanda Coleman, and Harryette Mullen. These writers engagements with jazz-based compositional devices represent a new strand of radical black poetics, while their renditions of local-to-global social critique sketch the outlines of a transnational feminism.

Description :


Public Poetics is a collection of essays and poems that address some of the most pressing issues of the discipline in the twenty-first century. The collection brings together fifteen original essays addressing “publics,” “poetry,” and “poetics” from the situated space of Canada while simultaneously troubling the notion of the nation as a stable term. It asks hard questions about who and what count as “publics” in Canada. Critical essays stand alongside poetry as visual and editorial reminders of the cross-pollination required in thinking through both poetry and poetics. Public Poetics is divided into three thematic sections. The first contains essays surveying poetics in the present moment through the lens of the public/private divide, systematic racism in Canada, the counterpublic, feminist poetics, and Canadian innovations on postmodern poetics. The second section contains author-specific studies of public poets. The final section contains essays that use innovative renderings of “poetics” as a means of articulating alternative communities and practices. Each section is paired with a collection of original poetry by ten contemporary Canadian poets. This collection attends to the changing landscape of critical discourse around poetry and poetics in Canada, and will be of use to teachers and students of poetry and poetics.

Description :


'Chiyo-ni - Woman Haiku Master' is a book in English on a woman haiku poet. Chiyo-ni (1703-1775), also known as Kaga no Chiyo, is perhaps Japan's most celebrated female haiku poet. A student of two of Basho's disciples, she worked in an age when haiku was largely a male domain. As a poet, painter, and Buddhist nun, she lived a vibrant life while creating poems of crystalline clarity and delicate sensuality. This volume presents more than one hundred translation of her finest seasonal haiku, renku (linked verse), and haibun (travel poems). Illustrated with artwork by Chiyo-ni and others, 'Chiyo-ni' also includes illuminating essays on her life and art, informative notes, and a glossary of haiku-related terms.

Description :


Looking at illness from the inside out, Ms. Heiss reveals distinctions which are profoundly important to those who are ill. Finding the Way Home explores the difference between disease (a biological condition) and illness (the individual human experience of it); between curing (the alleviation of symptoms) and healing (the healthy integration of all life experience, including illness); and between pain (physical distress) and suffering (the loss of meaning, connection, and hope in the face of pain). Grief is the natural and necessary response to loss, and the resilience of the human spirit in transcending grief is part of the healing process. Rather than offer formulaic solutions, Ms. Heiss affirms the need - and the right - of each individual to forge his or her own path. Ms. Heiss recognizes that being ill and witnessing illness both create distress. Her caring analysis of relationships with loved ones, friends, caregivers, and health care providers conveys not only what happens to people but between them. Accounts of support group discussions give the reader the rare opportunity to hear ill people talk honestly and openly with one another.
