[EAN: 9780822958949], Gebraucht, wie neu, [PU: University of Pittsburgh Press], NIGHT MOWING CHARD DENIORD POETRY / AMERICAN GENERALPOETRYPOETRY TEXTS & ANTHOLOGIESBELLETRISTIK LYRIK DRAMATIK ESSAYSPOETRY BY INDIVIDUAL POETSPOETRY ANTHOLOGIESAMERICAN - GENERALAMERICANGENERAL, Poetry|American, Expédier sous 48 heures The poems in Night Mowing find their influence in the natural and the erotic; the biblical and the classical; the aesthetic and the spiritual. The landscape exists as both an ecstatic source of inspiration and as an endangered garden, and the narrator of these poems moves through that landscape in admiration and anguish: trying to preserve his joyful innocence while fully aware of the transience of all that he sees. Each poem in its specifics, whether focusing on a lover, a mountain, a dog, or a critic, wrestles with the universal and sacred, revealing the instinct of the poems to move toward purity and deep feeling even in dark times. Back Cover copy "Here is a poet with a truly extraordinary verbal imagination. His poems begin in the commonplace and rise-or soar, leap, swell-to the climactic surreal in a few lines. This is aptitude beyond technique, unassailable by the workshopping greenhorns. It is indeed a kind of ecstasy for every and any reader. I recommend Chard deNiord's new book as enthusiastically as I can." --Hayden Carruth "In Night Mowing, deNiord seeks to live totally in the moment but with an abiding sense of the eternal, like the bird in his beautiful lyric 'To Hear and Hear,' which sings 'the same sweet song / again and again in the understory.' The result is terrific poetry." --Andrew Hudgins "At times narrative, at times pure song, these lyrics take the bucolic for their territory and trace the regular rhythms of season, day, the human pulse, and life span. Spiritual and primal worlds meet in a space best described by William Empson's late definition of the pastoral, wherein the complex finds expression in the simple and rustic. 'Earth is the right place for love.' Yes, and these poems are beautiful, essential reminders of that truth; boldly they speak to our broken times." --Julia Kasdorf "In narrative drive and metrical control, you'll hear an echo of Frost in Chard deNiord's new collection, which is as it should be for a New Englander who works the land and for whom memory is a source of conflict and comfort. There's real tonal range here: from humor to high seriousness: but for originality and charge of metaphor, take a look at the beekeeper poems, just the right antidote for Plath's bee poems." --Ira Sadoff "DeNiord bears witness to a natural world too readily overlooked in our time. Graceful, evocative, and true, [he] writes poems like one overturning stones and still capable of communicating wonder and delight in each discovery. His world, in which 'sweetness emanates as a bonus of beauty,' is memorable and compelling." --Robert McDowell Aazbook est spécialiste du livre neuf et occasion au meilleur prix.
