Black Velvet Elvis - neues Buch

ISBN: 9780889842779

ID: 978088984277

The King grins down from the gas station wall, benignant presence over the cash register blessing villagers and passing travellers through cracked, grime-mottled, grease-streaked glass. With this, his title poem, J. D. Black sets the tone, often ironic but never cynical, in this remarkable collection. In a broad range of topics, styles, and forms, all handled with impressive skill, Black explores facets of life ranging from the natural world, to human nature. Using forms, both lyrical and narrative, and approaches both idealistic and brutally realistic, he reflects life in all its manifestations. What is particularly gratifying, because it is so rare in poetry collections, is the clarity, the accessibility of Black''s poems. The subtlety, the brilliance, lies in the astonishing insights and the conviction of truth to reality which inform every poem. The reader''s reaction to each is, `Yes, right, that''s exactly the way it is.'' This conformance with reality is abetted by his very effective use of rhyme and metre, unfortunately rare commodities in modern verse.In the title poem, he blends wry social comment with biography, and myth, all informed by a melancholy sense of failure and loss. A series of `Vignettes of Len'', snapshots of a squalid thug contrast dramatically with a lovely testament to the onset of Spring, and with a haunting elegy to a disappearing god of the forest, the wolf. The dark humour of a hapless factory worker losing an arm to the machine is followed by a description of stew, so vivid that one can taste it. And a Venetian glass-blower anticipating cuckoldry. And a Good Friday poem of Judas. This collection is truly dazzling in its range and uniform excellence. It signals the arrival on the literary scene of a formidable talent. J. D.

Black Velvet Elvis - Erstausgabe

2006, ISBN: 0889842779

Taschenbuch, ID: 2668919944

[EAN: 9780889842779], Libro nuovo, [SC: 10.02], [PU: Erin, Ontario, Canada: Porcupines Quill], THE PORCUPINE'S QUILL, JOHN BLACK, CANADIAN POETRY, Poetry|Canadian, Poetry|General, Original printed wraps. 96 pp. Octavo. In this brilliant and unusual first book of poems, J. D. Black salutes The King not only with the occasional electric guitar but with stranger and more delicate melodies as well, a few strummed out on the dulcimer, others twanged along the nerves. Black reveals himself as a master of difficult forms extending from rondeaux and villanelles to mischievous haiku. But it would be mistaken to see him merely as a skilled traditionalist. Amid the high polish of the poems rough surprises abound. The menacing redneck Len surfaces in several `vignettes', his beery but robust visage scarcely contained by the strict sonnets through which he elbows. In these sly poems, Len, resplendent in his white Cadillac or cursing the `sumbitch stepdaddy' of his squeeze, contrasts sharply with the sad diminished figure of Elvis, moping in a Quebec`Gas-Bar de la Nuit'. Black moves expertly from witty light verse to elegies as graceful as they are moving. In`Last Train Out' the sense of loss of a Holocaust survivor is evoked through an abandoned stamp album. In `Canis Lupis', the wolf hidden inside the dog is unleashed. This is a dazzling collection of superb craft and subtle mischief by a poet whose work has for too long remained a private delight. Printed offset by Tim Inkster on the Heidelberg KORD at the printing office of the Porcupine's Quill in the Village of Erin, Wellington County, Ontario, Canada. Smyth sewn into 16-page signatures, with hand-tipped endleaves, front and back.

&lt;p&gt;The King himself puts in a cameo appearance at a rural Quebec &lt;i&gt;Gas-Bar de la Nuit&lt;/i&gt; where the glowing ends of several dozen cigarettes counterpoint an urgent bass line to the syncopated doo-wap of several tens of thousands of fireflies.
