Revised second edition, ,edited and annotated by Brett Rutherford. Shot by a German sniper in the Battle of Loos, Charles Sorley died at age 20, leaving behind enough poems for a slender volume published by his father in Marlborough and Other Poems.
Several of Sorley's poems have been featured in countless war anthologies, but the poet's complete work was kept in print only until There was a reprint sometime in the s and then Sorley seems to have been forgotten again. Sorley's nature poems, inspired by English naturalist Richard Jefferies the British Thoreau , depict the haunted landscape of the Wiltshire Downs, from the days of Roman-occupied Britain to Sorley's own time. As a student at Cambridge, young Sorley was steeped in the classics; he then traveled to Germany to study and was in school there when the War broke out.
He was arrested and sent home by the German government, and within days of returning to England, Sorley enlisted. The last set of his poems, written in the battlefield, contain both stark soundings of death, but also a kernel of wisdom and tolerance, as when he addresses a poem to the Germans he cannot bring himself to hate. Perhaps the most poignant poem is one he sent home retelling a key scene from Homer's Odyssey and then assuring his friend that he, too, ten years hence, would be telling his own war stories by the fire.
Three months later, Sorley was dead. His last poem, a blistering war sonnet, was sent home to his father in his kit. Sorley's body was never found. This volume includes passages from letters, selected by Sorley's father as illustrative of the themes of the poems in the book. To make this volume more accessible to today's readers and to students , Brett Rutherford has annotated both the poems and the letters, making clear the numerous classical and Biblical allusion that would have been well-known to Sorley's contemporaries. Some photos of the Wiltshire landscape have also been added, taken from an edition of Jefferies nature writing.
The book was completely re-typeset from the edition, using typefaces from the World War I era. The book also includes an annotated checklist of the critical reception of Sorley's work from through , by Larry Uffelman; a biographical sketch of the poet written by his mother for the Letters of Charles Sorley ; additional letters; and juvenilia.

This fourth and final volume collects all the unpublished manuscripts left by New York poet Emilie Glen. These poems, lyric and narrative, far from being the "bottom drawer" of the poet's work, contain the same urban savor as her longer works. Some of these poems were read by the poet repeatedly at the poetry salon she ran in Greenwich Village, and prior to that, at the salon she ran at her high-rise apartment on the Lower East Side in the s and s.
As always, her most engaging poems are miniature short stories, all set against a noir Manhattan that includes both shocking murders as well as moments of unexpected beauty among fire escapes, trash cans, alley cats, and the migratory birds in Central Park. The book includes several surprisingly experimental works and a true account of a horrifying psychopath who ran a Greenwich Village coffee house.

Don Washburn, born in Easton, Pennsylvania, went on to Yale and Denver University, and a career in college teaching embracing English literature, semantics, speech, and metaphysics. Now in his 80s, Washburn has circled back to the Christian fold, and this book is his culminating synthesis of his spiritual quest. When younger, I sought spiritual knowledge in books. Later, the Sufis taught me it resides in the human heart. But most importantly, throughout my life, I was blessed with intimations that could turn into poems.
A prayer bead is a reminder. A prayer bead has the power to summon an inspiration, but makes no pretense to comprising it. Poems that approach the ineffable can also serve as pointers. In the case of God, the finger must point everywhere. They are all round, like prayer beads, the refrain making a perfect circle. In time when so few people are capable of faith, I like to think I have been commandeered for a necessary service.
The Sufis teach that all religions point to the same divine Truth. So I also enjoyed an absolute religious freedom. And in my eighties I was able to reprise the Christian church of my boyhood. For more than four decades, New York City poet Emilie Glen produced a torrent of poetry, widely published in little magazines all over the world, and in a series of books and chapbooks that went through numerous reprints. Yet when the poet died in , all that remained of her papers were several shopping bags full of manuscripts, chapbooks and tear sheets of already-published works.
From this legacy, Brett Rutherford has assembled all the presently-available poems of this prolific New York poet. None of these poems exist in manuscript. Because the works are here in the order discovered, the book's randomness invites at-random reading. Open anywhere, and the Emilie we know from the first volume is still here in spades: poet, actress, pianist, bird-watcher, cat-lover, nature rhapsodist, the woman of Manhattan with a piercing eye for character and image.
She is the city, the street, the windows, the bridges and tunnels, the parks and fountains, the desperate dreamers on the doorsteps. Other poems in the book are from tear-sheets from unidentified publications. The editor located eleven poems originally published in ETC: A Review of General Semantics , and they are published here as a group since there is a thematic connection to some of the key ideas in semantics. These poems play on the paradoxes and ironies of how things come to be named, how we are manipuated by names such as "Acme" and "Atlas" and suggestions of royalty, and how journalism molds its own reality of what is "news" and what is not.
This volume also includes the full text of an out-of-print chapbook from titled Laughing Lute and Other Poems. This complements the chapbook-based text from Volume 1 of this series. The rd publication of The Poet's Press. Emilie Glen was best known as a poet, but she started her writing career in fiction, first published in H. In these nineteen short stories, Glen presents a portrait of midth century America, using penetrating character portraits to show a world already nearly-gone, its customs and manners as odd to some of us as those of an Amazonian people.
One story, "Cup of Gold," was edited and completed from a first-draft manuscript. Only two of the nineteen stories existed in manuscript. Emilie Glen was a staggeringly prolific New York City-based poet, wh0se published work spans five decades with thousands of little magazine and newspaper credits worldwide.
Glen's long-time friend and publisher Brett Rutherford has assembled the complete text of all the poet's chapbooks, including hand-bound mimeograph productions from her Greenwich Village coffeehouse days. From the s through the early s, Glen was also famed for hosting the longest-running poetry salon in Manhattan, so some of the eccentrics of the New York poetry scene also make an appearance in the editor's foreword, which includes both a description of the West Village poetry scene of that time, as well as everything we are likely to know about Emilie Glen's early life.
First recognized by H. Mencken and published in his American Mercury, she started as a fiction writer and then gravitated to narrative poetry, writing and publishing thousands of poems in magazines around the world. This includes the full text of all her Poet's Press chapbooks and books as well as early self-published leaflets and productions from several other presses. The poems gathered here are a narrative saga of New York high and low, as well as a poignant saga of family sorrows.

The best of them are intimate character portraits, short stories compressed into a dramatic, reader-friendly style, poetry the untrained reader need not fear. A keen observer of nature as well as of humanity, Glen delights with her informed short poems on cats, birds, and the occasional mermaid; she is just as much a naturalist in describing life among the tormented actors and actresses in an off-off-Broadway nude theater company.
A strong musical thread runs through this collection as well: Glen was a child prodigy pianist and came to New York City to study at The Juilliard School before the poetry Muse asserted her primacy, so Glen's Manhattan is an island of pianos, guitars, harps and orchestras. This important series belongs in every collection of 20th century American poetry.
With cover art by American wood engraver John DePol. Second printing, , including cover art for many of the chapbooks. Paperback ISBN This book is a retracing of landscape, heritage and culture, spanning continents and time. Interspersed with quotations from Columbus's journal, de Weever recounts and visits her native British Guiana as seen by its conquerors and ravishers, and by its survivors.
Rich with the flora and fauna of island and Amazon, the book poses native against the encounter with the native. The eyes of the caiman look out from the waters, while the visiting European artist paints delicate watercolors of butterflies and lush tropical plants. Some of the poems inhabit the oppressed within our northern borders, such as Tituba, accused witch of Salem, or the lynched Native American Jacqueline Peters. In retracing her own heritage and origins, de Weever invites us to confront the beauty, and violence, of the hemisphere we share. Pennsylvania poet Jack Veasey has here selected from four decades of his writing, an intense and affecting summation of his poetry so far.
Complementing his collection of more formal poems, this wide-ranging volume thrusts the reader into the inherent sense that every poet has, from childhood, of "not being like the others. Yet there are many small triumphs in the gorgeous language and the poems' arrived-at wisdom. Veasey never stands apart to poeticize, but is walways right there in the thick of things, vulnerable, compassionate, and strong.
Adept, accessible, utterly authentic, these poems have heart, soul, moral authority, and the quiet assurance of a major poet at the height of his powers. He was the author of eleven previous published collections of poetry, most recently Shapely: Selected Formal Poems His poems have also appeared in a number of anthologies. Veasey left a final manuscript of poems with The Poet's Press, which will be published in Spring And this exact name, the one we may never pronounce, is what Spina alludes to in these poems: the long name of things, the name that is born with us at our birth and grows as we grow and dies with us when we die.
This is the name that defines us or indentifies us at our essence — if there is an essence. The last part of the book deals with other sources and their meanings. For instance, the tarantella is not the folksy stereotypical dance with which an Italian American wedding ends. Its rhythm is hypnotic. Its purpose is to put the dancers into a trance in which rituals of life and death are reenacted: moments of love, of passion, of honor.
Its name refers to a tarantula — really a large spider — because within the trance the dancers thrash around their arms and legs like those of a frenzied spider. Heidegger writes that for the Greeks, truth was revelation. Thus I wished in these poems to unveil certain truths about my people and about myself. Vincent Spina was born in Brooklyn, New York. He received his Ph. His poems have appeared in various magazines over the years, and his first book of poetry, Outer Borough , was published in His articles on Latin American writers have appeared in various magazines and anthologies.
This book is Brett Rutherford's farewell to his adopted city, Providence, where he lived most of the years between and , with intervals away at Boston, New York, and Northern New Jersey. It is also his farewell to H. Lovecraft fandom, with two biting poems, "The Special Ward at Butler Hospital" and "On the Island of Pohnpei," the latter about a sinister hookah bar in the South Pacific that becomes the center of Lovecraft tourism. This small but lethal book also contains two powerful narrative poems about women at two ends of the power spectrum: a schoolgirl in colonial New England falls prey to a vicious schoolmaster in "Hoxie House," while "Young Girl's Prayer to Eos, At Corinth" is a whole new twist on the power some women have for magic and revenge, if they choose to use it.
Translations and adaptations in this slender volume include four poems adapted from the Chinese poet Li Yu, doomed last Emperor of Southern Tang, and an adaptation of Pushkin's supernatural poem, "The Demons. These new poems and revisions are from Second edition, revised and expanded. I had come across references to Hitler's fixation on wolves in his biographies, but the authors offered no context for this fixation and tended to treat it as yet another idiosyncratic symptom of mental illness.
Sax, an independent scholar and consultant to various human rights organizations, has written the first book to explore thoroughly the Nazi cult of animals. In a way, this book reads like a mystery novel, as it uncovers some of the chief paradoxes of Nazi ideology. The Nazis promoted vegetarianism and passed the most progressive anticruelty laws the world has ever known. Yet they also developed a mystical technocracy that reduced morality to the crudest version of a biological struggle for survival. They used images of animals to vilify their enemies especially, of course, the Jews and add to their own mystique the SS were portrayed as predator animals.
Sax is especially insightful about the subtle ways that the Nazis parodied and plundered Christian theology. This book is a must for all collections in German history and in animal rights. It is a deep and profound reflection on the complex and perplexing ways that animals can shape human culture and politics. Webb, Wabash College, in Choice. There is a great deal of material on the symbolism of blood, and some intriguing discussion of ritual animal sacrifice. Nazi regulations of how animals should and should not be slaughtered also come into focus Proctor, Pennsylvania State University, in Anthrozoos.
Rutherford here presents a disturbing sequel to an already-disturbing childhood recovered memory. Color digital art reveals Dr. Jones' vintage car, his medical kits, and images of the present-day ruins of the state hospital, where ordinary mental patients were mixed with the criminally insane. First published in the year in a hand-bound edition, The Plague Psalms presents a neo-Romantic vision worthy of Baudelaire and Poe: a world haunted by Moorish Spain, the Inquisition, the Black Death, Erik the Phantom of the Opera , the music of the Oud, and other subjects penitential and pestilential.
The book design incorporates wood engravings by Albrecht Durer. This new third edition recreates all the color content of the original. Jack Veasey was a provocative voice in modern American poetry since his teens. He started giving readings and publishing his poems in Philadelphia, New York, and Boston in the early s. Since then he has published ten collections of poems.
The poem, a plain-spoken free verse monologue about the moment one quits a demeaning job, remained his signature poem and established his reputation as chronicler of urban working class life. Veasey speaks with the clarity and directness of an Everyman. This eleventh collection spotlights a lesser-known aspect of his work.
In the early s Veasey began to write sonnets and other poems in fixed forms. Some are hilarious, some dark and disturbing, some poignant and touching: all have a clarity and striking musicality not found much in contemporary poetry.
Jack Veasey died suddenly in July, , leaving this as his next-to-last poetry collection. His final book will be published by The Poet's Press in Spring The 94 new poems and revisions in this collection range from a dark-shadowed childhood in the coal and coke region of Western Pennsylvania, to New York City and Providence, Rhode Island. The small boy of these poems is already a self-styled outsider, defining his difference from the crushing environment around him.
Two historic verse plays give voice to the mad Carlota, Empress of Mexico, and two Austrian policemen with an unexpected prisoner on their hands. Thomas can be seen as an extension into the 20th century of the general movement called Romanticism, particularly in its emphasis on imagination, emotion, intuition, spontaneity, and organic form. Considered to be one of the greatest Welsh poets of all time, Thomas is largely known for his imaginative use of language and vivid imagery in his poems.
Thomas began writing poetry as a child, and was publishing by his teens. Published in December , it received little notice at first, but by the following spring some influential newspapers and journals had reviewed it favorably. Watkins became a frequent source of money for the continually destitute Thomas.
That which he celebrates is creation, and more particularly the human condition. The range of interpretations was summarized by R. Kershner Jr. After spending some time with each of their reluctant families, they moved to a borrowed house in Laugharne, Wales. The borrowing of houses and money became recurring events in their married life together. It comprised a strange union of 16 poems and seven stories, the stories having been previously published in periodicals. The volume was a commercial failure, perhaps because of the war. Thomas avoided service in World War II because of medical problems; he had also considered filing for conscientious objector status.
He was able to secure employment during the war years writing documentary scripts for the British Broadcasting Corporation BBC. While he considered it hack work, it provided the first regular income since his newspaper days and also allowed him to spend a good deal of time in London pubs. This pragmatic writing was the beginning of a career that Thomas pursued until his death; it did not, however, replace what he considered his more important work, the writing of poems.
In addition to the documentaries, he wrote radio scripts and eventually screenplays for feature films. Though his income from these activities was moderate, it did not allow him relief from debt or borrowing. It is essentially the time-honored story of a country boy in the big city. Ferris noted that sold in the first month after its publication and that the publisher, Dent, ordered a reprint of the same number.
Thomas was always a highly individual stylist. Sound was as important as sense in his poems—some would even say more important. He made ample use of alliteration, assonance, internal rhyme, and approximate rhyme. Thomas may, in fact, have depended upon an iambic expectancy, as he varied his rhythms beyond any customary iambic formulation and then—by completely unprecedented innovations—created his own rhythm, which is very close to iambic.
Through his very popular readings and recordings of his own work, this writer of sometimes obscure poetry gained mass appeal. For many, he came to represent the figure of the bard, the singer of songs to his people. For the last four years of his life he moved between this dwelling and the United States, where he went on four separate tours to read his poetry and receive the adulation of the American public. Neither of these was produced, but they gave Thomas the opportunity to develop his dramatic skills.
Yet it moves, at its best, into a genuine involvement, an actual sharing of experience, which is not the least of its dramatic virtues. The following November, Dylan Thomas died in New York of ailments complicated by alcohol and drug abuse. A selection of Thomas's celebratory, finely-tuned poems, first published in Poetry magazine.
