  • Poetry For Dummiesby The Poetry Center; John Timpane

    Wiley 2011; US$ 19.99

    Sometimes it seems like there are as many definitions of poetry as there are poems. Coleridge defined poetry as “the best words in the best order.” St. Augustine called it “the Devil’s wine.” For Shelley, poetry was “the record of the best and happiest moments of the happiest and best minds.” But no matter... more...

  • Attack of the Difficult Poemsby Charles Bernstein

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 26.00

    Charles Bernstein is our postmodern jester of American poesy, equal part surveyor of democratic vistas and scholar of avant-garde sensibilities. In a career spanning thirty-five years and forty books, he has challenged and provoked us with writing that is decidedly unafraid of the tensions between ordinary and poetic language, and between everyday... more...

  • Close Listeningby Charles Bernstein

    Oxford University Press, USA 1998; US$ 38.99

    Close Listening brings together seventeen strikingly original essays, especially written for this volume, on the poetry reading, the sound of poetry, and the visual performance of poetry. While the performance of poetry is as old as poetry itself, critical attention to modern and postmodern poetry performance has been surprisingly slight. This volume,... more...

  • The Poet's Freedomby Susan Stewart

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 22.50

    Why do we need new art? How free is the artist in making? And why is the artist, and particularly the poet, a figure of freedom in Western culture? The MacArthur Award–winning poet and critic Susan Stewart ponders these questions in The Poet’s Freedom . Through a series of evocative essays, she not only argues that freedom is necessary... more...

  • Industrial Poeticsby Joe Amato

    University of Iowa Press 2006; US$ 35.00

    Through a dizzying array of references to subjects ranging from engineering to poetry, on-the-job experiences in academia and industry, conflicts between working-class and intellectual labor, the privatization of universities, and the contradictions of the modern environment, Joe Amato?s Industrial Poetics mounts a boisterous call for poetry communities... more...

  • The Boy Who Slept Under the Starsby Roseann Lloyd

    Holy Cow! Press 2012; US$ 8.99

    The poet's brother disappears mysteriously in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. These deeply felt poems explore loss, grief, acceptance. more...

  • Uncreative Writingby Kenneth Goldsmith

    Columbia University Press 2011; US$ 22.99

    Can techniques traditionally thought to be outside the scope of literature, including word processing, databasing, identity ciphering, and intensive programming, inspire the reinvention of writing? The Internet and the digital environment present writers with new challenges and opportunities to reconceive creativity, authorship, and their relationship... more...

  • The Lost Second Book of Aristotle's Poeticsby Walter Watson

    University of Chicago Press 2012; US$ 36.00

    Of all the writings on theory and aesthetics—ancient, medieval, or modern—the most important is indisputably Aristotle’s Poetics , the first philosophical treatise to propound a theory of literature. In the Poetics , Aristotle writes that he will speak of comedy—but there is no further mention of comedy. Aristotle writes... more...
