"In twenty-nine separate but ingenious ways, these stories seek permanent residence within a reader. They strive to become an emotional or intellectual cargo that might accompany us wherever, or however, we go. . . . If we are made by what we read, if language truly builds people into what they are, how they think, the depth with which they feel, then these stories are, to me, premium material for that construction project. You could build a civilization with them." --Ben Marcus, from the Introduction Award-winning author of Notable American Women""Ben Marcus brings us this engaging and co... View more info

Publisher: Oxford University Press: October 2001

Seller ID: 120624

ISBN: 0192801929

Condition: Used - Good


Selected by Thomas Kinsella, a renowned poet and translator, this anthology presents the Irish tradition as unity: verse in Irish and English, usually regarded separately, are shown as elements in a shared and often painful history. As the most wide-ranging anthology available--spanning from the pre-Christian era to the present day, the poems are grouped in three sections. Kinsella's first selections are from the earliest pre-Christian times and move forward to the first poetry in English from the 14th century. Next comes Irish bardic poetry and English poetry in the era of Swift and Golds... View more info

Condition: Used - Good


So there are no excuses here, and not a lot of explanations. I offer you here, my poems, my words, or at least some of them, inadequate as they might be. In any event it makes me smile to think that perhaps some good will come of this path. So it does come down to arrogance after all..the idea that I will make a difference, leave a mark, be well thought of by others..all marks of a man who has not yet resolved the paradox of being.

Traveling at High Speeds (New Issues Poetry & Prose)

By: John Rybicki

Price: $7.00

Publisher: New Issues Poetry & Prose: January 2003

Edition: 2

Seller ID: 46878

ISBN: 1930974353

Condition: Used - Good


Poetry. The kinetic energy of John Rybicki's poems is his unmistakable signature.His poem "Traveling at High Speeds" opens with the lines, "Some night my body takes the shape of this city." That urban shape is the shape of John Rybicki's poetry as well. The city in question is, of course, Detroit, but whether Detroit itself is the subject, as it is in many of his poems, or not, the cadence of its streets informs the slashing attack of Rybicki's vivid language.
