Early Hour

Early Hour
McGriff, Michael, 1976-

""It's [McGriff's] language that keeps you reading along, transfixed."--New York Times Book Review "A lyricist at heart, McGriff is a masterful maker of metaphor." --Third Coast "McGriff's vivid grit remains hard to gainsay."--Publishers Weekly A book-length sequence inspired by the Nazi-persecuted German Expressionist painter Karl Hofer's work, McGriff's third collection meditates on eros, cosmology, independence, provenance, "occupied territories," and deviance. Detailed yet indeterminately American landscapes flood with surrealist dream imagery and subtle violence, while the voice of these poems intertwines between the intimately personal and the honestly imagined--all while remaining plainspoken, angular, direct. From Cosmology The river moves beneath the sheet ice. The wind is a grand hall of records. In the recipe box above the refrigerator, the deathbed photos of four generations-- somewhere, their hands have turned to prime numbers

The Letters of Sylvia Plath: Volume I, 1940-1956

The Letters of Sylvia Plath: Volume I, 1940-1956
Plath, Sylvia

In The Letters of Sylvia Plath Volume 1, 1940-1956, we discover the art of Plath's correspondence. Most of these materials have never before been published, and are presented here unabridged and without revision--so that she can speak directly in her own words. Refreshingly candid and offering intimate details of her personal life, Plath's letters entertain a wide ranges of addressees, including family, friends, and professional contacts, with inimitable wit and verve. This selection of early correspondence marks the key moments of Plath's adolescence, including her childhood hobbies and high school boyfriends; her successful but turbulent undergraduate years at Smith College; her move to England and Cambridge University; and her meeting and marrying Ted Hughes, including previously unseen post-honeymoon letters that reveal the beginnings of their extraordinary creative partnership. The letters document Plath's literary development and show the genesis of many poems, short and long fiction, and works of journalism. While her endeavors to publish in a variety of genres received mixed reception, she was never dissuaded. Well-read and curious, Plath simultaneously offers a fascinating commentary on contemporary culture as well as a rare look at her writing ambitions through her correspondence. Peter K. Steinberg, leading Plath scholar, and Karen V. Kukil, editor of The Journals of Sylvia Plath, 1950-1962, provide comprehensive footnotes and an extensive index informed by their meticulous research that masterfully contextualize what these pages disclose. The letters are adorned by a selection of never-before-published photographs and Plath's own elegant line drawings. This remarkable collection, a work of immense scholarship and care, presents an exclusive look at the interior life of one of the most talented and fascinating poets of the modern age. -- Inside jacket flap.

My Ugly & Other Love Snarls

My Ugly & Other Love Snarls
McCutchen, Wryly T.

"Sex. Bicycles. Love. A city that used to sleep and now never will again. A body's intimate war fraught with splinters of gender. Invoking Lenore Kandel and Rainer Maria Rilke, Wryly T. McCutchen takes mundane rhythms and spins the world through the spokes of a bicycle, a card of second adolescence clipped to the fender and creating a joyful noise. At once tender and raucous, My Ugly delves deep into the heart of poetic in medias res surrounding the reader with a life lesson in power and granting guidance to weather storms we come to love."--Amazon.com
