Another Ghost in the Doorway: Collected Poems

By Pease, Deborah

Kingston, Rhode Island, U.S.A.: Moyer Bell Ltd, 1999. Brand new book, still sealed in publisher's shrink wrap. Note from author in sealed envelope taped on outside. From Library Journal Pease has been writing and publishing poetry for close to 30 years. Her distinctive talent has perhaps manifested itself in a style too quiet for controversy or wide acclaim, yet her short lyrics and haiku are valuable and thought-provoking. Her taut, brief lines isolate and highlight words, as in "Thus": "Thus/ Life passes/ As in a dream of fitful sleep.../ Notice/ I say dream, not nightmare./ Nightmare is the right/ Word/ But it should be used/ Sparingly." Over the years represented by this collection of her verse, she has gained in clarity and simplicity: she combines certain aspects of the great Stevie Smith with the willed na?vet? of Edward Field, never doubting the possibilities of poetry: "It may not be true/ But now it seems/ That as long/ As I can sound/ My life like a dove/ I can live anywhere."

Like Father Like Son

By Allan Douglass Coleman

Villa Florentine Press, 2007. Gift inscribed by the author on half title page. Lyric poetry and prose poetry by two widely published poets. This compilation, Earl Coleman's third published collection of poems, celebrates his 91st birthday as well as the 63rd birthday of his son Allan, who has issued one previous book of poems and several artist's books. Both writers have published widely in literary magazines. Earl Coleman has been twice nominated for the Pushcart Prize for fiction, and once for Best American Short Stories. Allan Coleman received a 2001 Performing Arts Award from the Council for the Arts & Humanities for Staten Island and, most recently, a 2007 "New Work" grant from the same organization. Like Father Like Son comprises two separate chapbooks joined in a distinctive two-cover design. Each half presents a selection of new and previously published poems, accompanied by an extensive interview addressing its subject's writing background and approach to practice. Earl Coleman's interview first appeared in the journal River King in 2003. Allan Coleman's counterpart thereto, a recent self-interview, appears in print for the first time. The concerns of their lyric poems and prose poems range from the scrabble for survival in Depression-era New York through the successes and failures of love and marriage to the perils of old age, and from the public arena of political life to the interior spaces of the creative process. Like Father Like Son takes on added resonance by contrasting and combining the perspectives of two generations of writers from the same family.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Soft Cover. Fine.

Collected Poems 1947-1980

By Ginsberg, Allen; Morgan, Bill

New York: Harper & Row, 1984. Gathered here for the first time is the verse of three decades of one of America's greatest poets. Collected Poems 1947-1980 includes all writings in the groundbreaking paperback volumes published by City Lights Books, the contents of many rare pamphlets issued by small presses, and, finally, some notable texts hitherto unpublished—one, "Many Loves," withheld "for reasons of prudence and modesty," is an erotic rhapsody dating from the historic "San Francisco Renaissance" era. Allen Ginsberg is, of course, a chief figure in the group of writers (among them Kerouac, Corso, Ferlinghetti, Creeley, Duncan, snyder, and O'Hara) who, in the Bay Area and in New York in the 1950s, began to change the course of American poetry, liberating it from closed academic forms by the creation of open, vocal, spontaneous, and energetic postmodern verse in the tradition of Whitman, Apollinaire, Hart, Crance, Pound, and William Carlos Williams. Within a decade, Ginsberg's classics "Howl," "Kaddish," and "The Change" would become central in leading American (and international) poetry toward uncensored vernacular, raw candor, the ecstatic, the rhapsodic, and the sincere—al leavened, in Ginsberg's work, by an attractive and pervasive streak of common sense. These raw tones and attitudes of spiritual liberation helped catalyze a psychological revolution that has become a permanent part of our cultural heritage, profoundly influencing not only poetry and popular song and speech but also a generation's view of the world. Even the literary establishment, hostile at first toward the revolutionary new spirit, has recognized Allen Ginsberg's achievement by honoring him with a National Book Award and membership in the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters. The uninterrupted energy of Ginsberg's remarkable career—embodying political activism as well as Buddhist spiritual practice—is clearly revealed in this volume. Seen in the order of composition, the poems reflect on one another; they are not only works but also a work. Here are the familiar anthology staples "Sunflower Sutra" and "To Aunt Rose"; the great antiwar poem "Wichita Vortex Sutra"; "Wales Visitation" (an extraordinary nature ode inspired by psychedelic experiments); the much-translated elegy "September on Jessore Road" and the meditative fantasy "Mind Breaths," followed by the haunting "Father Death Blues" and a later heroic, full-voiced "Plutonian Ode," addressed to "you, Congress and American people." Among the recent poems are the delicate familiar anecdotes in "Don't Grow Old"; "Birdbrain!," a savage political burlesque; and the new-wave lyric "Capitol Air." Adding to the splendid richness of this book are illustrations by Ginsberg's artist friends; unusual and illuminating notes to the poems, inimitably prepared by the author; extensive indexes; and prefaces and other materials that accompanied the original publications. One minor edge tear on back of jacket, otherwise in very nice condition. Heavy book, overseas shipping will require extra postage.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Very Good +.
