Sharon Lask Munson The Weight of Snow

Sharon Lask Munson’s poems travel through space, tunnel through time, and cross generations. Whether free verse, prose poem, haiku or haibun, they carry, lean on and converse with each other in this exquisite volume of poetry. Personal history, family traditions, food, the natural world, pop culture, all blend into a sumptuous word stew. Reality is often heightened. Snow becomes more than snow. A collection of watches becomes an emblem of time. A dessert pastry becomes more than a dessert, ‘no two… cut from the same dough.’ She shows us that life can be painted with marvelous colors, sensuous images, and at ‘end of day’ be ‘strewn with possibilities.Sharon Lask Munson was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan. She taught school in England, Germany, Okinawa, and Puerto Rico before driving to Anchorage, Alaska and staying for the next twenty years. She is a retired teacher, poet, coffee addict, old movie enthusiast, lover of road trips — with many published poems, two chapbooks, and one full-length book of poetry. She now lives and writes in Eugene, Oregon.She says many things motivate her to write: a mood, a memory, the smell of cooking, burning leaves, a windy day, rain, fog, something observed or overheard — and of course, imagination. She has a pin that says, “I Make Things Up.

Motherhood is not what it used to be, as more moms than ever before are having children later on in life. This is the must-have book for all moms who had a child after the age of 35—a group the medical profession not-so-kindly calls—‘advanced maternal age.’ Sharon O’Donnell writes about the humorous and poignant stories of having a child at 38 and how she discovered that breastfeeding and AARP membership aren’t really all that far apart. Sharon says being a mom of a certain age can be tough and rewarding—and rather alarming when you realize that all the TV programs you watch have commercials for incontinence or the Scooter Store.

All is poetry, and all speaks to us in the muted tones of seduction and plaintive cries. Herein lie the words, the unspoken emotions and expressions of one; the images that would not lend to speaking; and the expressions of an intimate soul.

Ralph Russell A Thousand Yearnings. A Book of Urdu Poetry and Prose

For many people, Urdu is indelibly associated with a bygone era: the cultural renaissance of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in the face of colonial oppression, heady mushairas and romantic poetry. For others, it brings to mind the gritty prose of the Progressive Writers portraying the grim social realities of the mid-twentieth century.In this luminous collection of Urdu poetry and prose, Ralph Russell expands our world of Urdu letters to include folk and oral narratives, besides prose and poetry. By situating each form historically, he gives us a refreshing perspective on the diverse literary cultures and histories of India.Besides canonical short stories by the likes of Manto and Premchand, there is Ismat Chughtai’s a little-known autobiographical essay about her relationship with her brother, the writer Azim Beg Chughtai. There are creation tales from the Quran, popular stories of Akbar and Birbal, along with the legendary exploits of Sikandar (Alexander the Great). Selections from the sublime poetry of Mir, Ghalib and others are supplemented by astute commentary and roman transcriptions of the original Urdu. Farhatullah Beg’s brilliantly imagined account of the ‘last Delhi mushaira’ captures a moment in time never seen again, with the horrors of 1857 just around the corner.An accessible introduction for unfamiliar readers, and a pleasurable companion for those familiar with Urdu literature, this volume is a treasure trove of stories, poetry and history.

Jennifer Burd Body and Echo

Walking Home at Dusk Fireflies trail like sparks from a still-smoldering day. The crescent moon harvests clouds while corn falls quiet under evening mists. Crickets have one thing to say: this, this.The genius of Jennifer Burd's poetry lies not only in the ways her language inhabits each and every one of her internal and external landscapes, but also in the profound yet playful delight of her responses to, and conversations with, even the smallest details so at home in the universe she inhabits: from In Winter I must belong to a land under hard freeze, the mourning dove's silence above the snow calls trees out of the blue so I can see the pure shape of the world, each day born unadorned, stripping me bare, promising everything. - Simone Yehuda, author of Thaw and Lifting Water

Sadik Assaieg, Soheil Najm Wounds of the Old Trees. Iraqi Poems

Since The Song of the Rhinoceros (1973) till his recent collections of poems entitled Wounds of the Old Trees (2011), the Iraqi poet Sadiq Assaieg proves to be a poet of vision, passion and sensation. For him, poetry is no more an act of inspiration, but it is a complex craft to be mastered and thought of. His poetry, since the sixties of the last century represents a sharp departure from classical and romantic traditions in Arabic poetry and shows a real affinity to modernity. His poetic language is rich with imagery, masks and mythology. He always shocks his reader and contradicts their horizon of expectation and urges them to share the poetic experience actively to negotiate the innate meaning of his poetic vision. His poetry is motivated by the pulse of time and inner insight of life. Experimentation, suspicions, rebellion and rejecting poetic and social conventions are but some of the targets and motifs of his poetry. — Fadhil Thamir, Iraqi critic The most prominent characteristic of the poetic text, written by the poet Sadiq Assaieg is the Collage, as plastic art, optical image, the internal rhythm and drama play a role in building the overall structure of the poem. Hence comes his dissimilarity with the most prominent symbols of the sixtieth generation. He declares without hesitation that he entered the field of poetry through the (white screen), but he remained alone, introverted on his poetry and happy in his solitude, engrossed in the search for his lost paradise an...

Benjamin Campbell Poem

'Poem' is the ninth book of poetry in Benjamin Campbell's 13books series. Charting a range of topics throughout the year, these books aim to capture a slice of modern life. In this collection, the poetry turns introspective: these poems are about their own creation, the effects they have on their creators and consumers, and the very idea of writing. Interspersed with this is a conversation on the power of poetry and the many useful - and useless - things it can do, from an expression of love to a force of destruction. No matter the purpose, though, one thing is always clear: poetry and its power are some of the most curious and indefinable aspects of our lives.You can read more of Benjamin's work at his blog,

James Henry The Wings of the Dove James Henry The Wings of the Dove Новинка

James Henry The Wings of the Dove

The Wings of the Dove is a tale of desire and possession, of love and death. It is in essence a simple story, but one that opens up the great subject of art: life itself. To tackle this, James moves between fairytale storylines and the startlingly modern techniques of his testing late style. An unspeakable subtext lies beneath the silence. Distinct points of view and different centres of consciousness betray the dislocation of the social facade from the desolation beneath. For all the familiar signs, there is a gulf between glamour and the underlying threat of loss. The eternal triangle of romance is played out here like a game on an international stage for the very highest stakes. It centres on 'the dying girl who wants to live - to live and love.' But those closest to her are in competition for what she can leave behind. Milly Theale, 'the heiress of all the ages', is imaged as a dove, a princess, a Renaissance beauty, but these symbols come at a dreadful cost. By the end of the novel we know, 'We shall never be again as we were!'

Bob Sterry The Bob Sterry Book of Burglary. Essays, Poetry and Short Stories

There is never a good time to publish another collection of poetry and essays. But then again, there is never a bad time to publish another collection of poems and essays. And so I feel entirely justified and motivated to add my own work to the mountain of words already bending the shelves of bookstores and libraries around the world.In the spring of 2012 I put together a very short collection or chapbook of poetry titled Wing Nut. So called because instead of any traditional binding the pages were secured by a brass wing nut and bolt in the top left corner. Not elegant, hard to stack, but certainly unique, affordable, and curious enough to cause comment at poetry readings. This new collection of poems, essays and short stories contains a few of the pieces from Wing Nut and a selection of my work since then.I am not capable of explaining exactly why poetry is important. It does not attract a lot of attention in our schools, and announcing that you are choosing to major in Poetry produces anxiety very high on the parental Richter scale. But it seems that poetry has not disappeared and the bookstores and libraries must make room for them.Not quite so eschewed is the art of essay writing. But how many of us have been introduced to someone who calmly lets you know they are an essayist? Not even the famous journalists who write for the New Yorke, Harpers and the Atlantic will easily admit this. The essay. It was indeed one of the horrors of my own education; the fear of being inst...

A sprawling novel focuses on the burgeoning revolution in 19th-century Texas. …a substantial piece of thoughtful historical fiction. —Kirkus Reviews________________________In the Texas Revolution of 1836, fighters and those fleeing after the Alamo and Goliad brace for a last clash. Born in Mexico’s San Antonio, Captain Juan Seguin risks all in championing the break-away republic. Private James Trezevant, one of few Georgia Battalion survivors, makes his way toward the attack at San Jacinto. The Harper women scramble for the safety of the American border. Yarico and anyone else identified as a slave stay wary during calls for “liberty or death.”________________________ Judith Austin Mills has given us an impressive third volume in her moving saga of the birth of Texas. This novel of survival, struggle and redemption is character driven and emotionally charged from beginning to end. We see the battlefield intimately, not just heroically, and the hard won happiness of the "winners" has its cost.
