Recensione

Welcome to the Kallieverse, which shares the everyday pleasures and perils of our world, but seems to obey slightly different laws of physics and tilts its language in new intriguing ways. It's the twin of our cosmos, separated from ours at the Big Bang-and happily, Ms. Falandays has reunited them. -Albert Goldbarth, on Kallie Falandays' Tiny Openings Everywhere There is a stillness and attentiveness in Aaron Jorgensen-Briggs's Score for a Burning Bridge, an abiding quiet, as if the poems are trying not to scare something wild nearby. In this stillness you can hear "the purr of locusts" and "dusk, quiet / as a coat on a hook." But as you travel deeper into this stunning collection to where "the map is lost / inside the act of folding"-you see, of course, that the poems are wild themselves. -Maggie Smith, on Aaron Jorgensen-Briggs's Score for a Burning Bridge This is a great American poem. Jordan tells the truth of a life as split open by the world-by life on this earth with other kinds of beings, human and other, with dreams and ghosts, machinery, between the visible and invisible. The language is thick, allusive, rich, dense. She turns scalding materials into gorgeous art. -Adrienne Rich, on Judy Jordan's Hunger

Sinossi

This is the second volume in the Floodgate Poetry Series, an annual series of books collecting three chapbooks by three poets in a single volume, edited by Andrew McFadyen-Ketchum. Chapbooks—short books under 40 pages—arose when printed books became affordable in the 16th century. The series is in the tradition of 18th and 19th century British and American literary annuals, and the Penguin Modern Poets Series of the 1960s and ’70s. Floodgate Poetry Series Vol. 2 contains poetry by Kallie Falandays, Aaron Jorgensen-Briggs, and Judy Jordan.

5.0 su 5 stelle Perhaps this book will unleash a floodgate of your own :) 10 dicembre 2015

A man doubted his resolve - a woman looked deep into his soul, finding strength he didn't know was there. He marveled at her perceptiveness. They joined forces and nothing would hinder them.

4.0 su 5 stelle I loved this book and enjoyed each of the poets 24 novembre 2015

I loved this book and enjoyed each of the poets. Kallie's poems spoke to my psyche, Aaron's to my imagination, and Judy's to my heart. I felt connected to each, but in very different ways.

With the very first poem, by Kallie, I felt like she was sharing life lessons. Even after reading her whole collection, I kept going back to the end of the first poem, "After we discover our littleness we become many different kinds of hurt". This simple truth felt like an epiphany to me.

Aaron's poems felt more foreign to me, like I was looking in on someone else's life. They led me on an adventure and threw in so many quotable phrases. My favourite, by far, was "... lost inside of map of Sunday." I don't know if I could tell you exactly what Aaron meant, but I know that it's one of those lines that feels like it could mean everything and anything. It had me lost in thought and possibilities.

Judy's poems left the biggest impression on me. They "spoke" to me. One of her poems, which touched on the poverty inducing reality of US health care, made me very sad. As a Canadian, I can't imagine the stress and frustration of not being able to pay for something that you need to function on a day-to-day basis. But, she filled the tragedy of it all with such beauty. I could smell the earth and flowers she spoke of as my heart ached for her. Another was about what is lost when natural areas are developed and it broke my nature loving heart. I loved her poems, her language (I highlighted so many lines in her poems), and her focus.

Whether you're looking for a quick read or your next poetry collection, I recommend this (or, volume one, which was also very good).
