How to Enter – Griffin Poetry Prize
The Chronicle of the Versemaker. The Cloister on Kazbek. Conversation of a Bookseller With a Poet. A Nightingale and a Rose. Poet and Crowd. Ruslan and Lyudmila. The Tenth Commandment. To the Bust of the Conqueror. Stories, both benign and traumatic, travel as lore and DNA. Using lush, exact imagery, whether about the corner bar or a hilltop in Korea, Lee is a careful observer, tracking and documenting the way that seemingly small moments can lead to larger insights. But these unpretentious vignettes are laced with compassion, as she learns to balance the sting of death with the tender strangeness of life.
Here we meet its survivors and victims, from a pearl-catcher to a mild-mannered father to a drove of mindless pink robots.
Sink asks and answers hard questions about grief, lineage, death and all manner of inheritance. What is one left with when they come from a family that has nothing to its name but loss? Throughout, Dallagiacomo weighs the cost of what it is to be alive and a woman in a landscape that makes being alive and a woman uninviting.
Sink approaches grief and depression not as a tourist, but instead with the power and nuance of someone who has survived and made the most of their survival. Balancing artistic experimentation with earnest expression, achingly real detail with dazzling prismatic abstraction, humor with frustration, light with dark, she offers a book of great human depth that is to be carried around, opened to anywhere, and encountered.

The speaker of these poems is a sorceress, a bride, a warrior, a lover, both object and agent, ricocheting among ways of knowing and being known. Each incarnation squares itself up against ideas of feminine virtue and sin, strength and vulnerability, love and rage, as it closes in on a hard-won freedom.
Who is this nation? Where does freedom truly lie? The Tradition is a cutting and necessary collection, relentless in its quest for survival while revelling in a celebration of contradiction. We are dropped straight into the tangled intersections of technology, violence, erasure, agency, gender, and loneliness. In holding space for multiple intersecting identities, the anthology celebrates and protects those identities. Patricide weighs those complexities and how they impact a lineage of black boys who fight to become men in the image of their fathers. More than just a book about fear or death centered on being black in America, Patricide illuminates the internal struggle to be the best man possible with the shadow of other men at your back.
Ultimately, Patricide opens itself up to reveal a story of many threads, one that finds a way to tie together in unexpected and joyful ways. As Shaughnessy conjures our potential future, she movingly and often with humor envisions an age where cephalopods might rule over humankind, a fate she suggests we may just deserve after destroying their oceans. These heartbreaking, terrified poems are the battle cry of a woman who is fighting for the survival of the world she loves, and a stirring exhibition of who we are as a civilization. Voices rise up, as they might do anywhere, speaking of loving and needing and working and dying and walking the dogs.
But it also belongs to Dead Papa Toothwort, a figure schoolchildren used to draw green and leafy, choked by tendrils growing out of his mouth. He is listening to this twenty-first-century village, to his English symphony. He is listening, intently, for a mischievous, enchanting boy whose parents have recently made the village their home.
Auden, Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson, W. At once a witness to the fraught yet undeniable love between a single mother and her son, it is also a brutally honest exploration of race, class, and masculinity. Ewing explores the story of this event—which lasted eight days and resulted in thirty-eight deaths and almost injuries—through poems recounting the stories of everyday people trying to survive and thrive in the city.
Ewing uses speculative and Afrofuturist lenses to recast history, and illuminates the thin line between the past and the present. It is an epic poem consisting of illuminated plates. Blake dated the title page , but he seems to have worked on the poem for a considerable length of time after that date. As the narrative begins, man is apart from God and split into separate identities. Much of Jerusalem is devoted to the idea of awakening the human senses, so that the reader can perceive the spiritual world that is everywhere present.
Separation from God leads to further separation into countless male and female forms creating endless division and dispute. Blake describes the fallen state of man by describing the present day. Interwoven into the mythology are references to present-day London. As the human body is a limited form of its divine origin, the cities of England are limited representations of the Universal Brotherhood of Man. Caught by the errors of sin and vengeance, Albion gives up hope and dies. In such a framework physical death marks the end of existence. The Tate Gallery in London has one of the best collections of Blake's art.
Another major collection of illuminated works, including the manuscript for An Island in the Moon, is located in the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, England. Prose Home Harriet Blog. Visit Home Events Exhibitions Library. Newsletter Subscribe Give.
Poetry Foundation. Back to Previous. William Blake. He insists on laws for all to follow: One command, one joy, one desire One curse, one weight, one measure, One King, one God, one Law. Although man is in a fallen state, the end of the poem points to the regeneration that is to come: Orc, raging in European darkness, Arose like a pillar of fire above the Alps, Like a serpent of fiery flame! At the end of the poem, Ahania laments the lost pleasures of eternity: Where is my golden palace?
In the preface to the poem, Blake issues a battle cry to his readers to reject what is merely fashionable in art: Rouze up, O Young Men of the New Age! Poems by William Blake. Related Content. More About this Poet.
