Shakespeare's sisters - how women wrote the Renaissance

"A remarkable work about women writers in the Renaissance explodes our notion of the Shakespearean period and brings us in close to four women who were committed to their craft before there was any possibility of "a room of one's own." In a sparkling andengaging narrative of everyday life in Shakespearean England, Ramie Targoff carries us from the sumptuous coronation of Queen Elizabeth in the mid 16th century into the private lives of four women writers working without acknowledgment at a time

Watch your language - visual and literary reflections on a century of American poetry

"This collection of graphic reviews, illustrated prose, and visualized poetics addressing the last century of American poetry establishes the roots of Terrance Hayes's poetic influences and reconstructs modes of poetic engagement, demonstrating what makesa poem both move and be moving and illustrating how drawing itself can be a kind of critical, poetic discourse"--

 
Watch your language - visual and literary reflections on a century of American poetry

Canonized, overlooked, and forgotten African American poets star in Terrance Hayes's brillian contemplations of personal and allegorical literary development....Illustrated micro-essays, graphic book reviews, biographical prose poems, and nonfiction sketches make reading an imaginative and critical act of watching your language. Hayes has made a kind of poetic guidebook with more questions than answers. "If you don't see suffering's potential as art, will it remain suffering?" he asks in one o

Blue atlas - poems

"Blue Atlas is a lyrical abortion narrative unlike any other. This one-of-a-kind collection follows a Jewish woman and her ghosts as they travel from West Africa to Europe and, finally, to the High Atlas Mountains of Morocco. The speaker searches repeatedly for a new outcome, seeking answers in a myriad of mediums such as an online questionnaire, a freshman composition essay, and a curriculum vitae. The raw, often far from idyllic experience of a global love affair that results in an unplanned p

Vexations

"Viewed from a distance, interdisciplinary artist and poet Annelyse Gelman's Vexations could be described as a long poem-a book-length narrative work in the tradition of epic or romance. Vexations is fragmentary and dreamlike, however, chipping away overtime at the very foundation on which such a narrative tradition typically rests. The central drama of Vexations is centered around the journey of a mother and her daughter through a speculative world that seems utterly contemporary and, at the sa

Thick with trouble

"In Thick with Trouble, award-winning poet Amber McBride interrogates if being "trouble"-difficult, unruly, powerful, defiant-is ultimately a weakness or an incomparable source of strength. Steeped in the hoodoo spiritual tradition and organized via reimagined tarot cards, this collection becomes a chorus of unapologetic women who laugh, cry, mesmerize, and bring outsiders to their knees. Summoning the supernatural to examine death, rebirth, and life outside the male gaze, Amber McBride has craf
