Making Your Own Days: The Pleasures of Reading and Writing Poetry

Editura: Touchstone Books

Anul aparitiei: 1999

From one of the most esteemed American poets of the twenty-first century comes a celebration of poetry and an invitation for anyone to experience its beauty and wonder. Full of fresh and exciting insights, Making Your Own Days illuminates the somewhat mysterious subject of poetry for those who read it and for those who write it--as well as for those who would like to read and write it better. By treating poetry not as a special use of language but as a distinct language--unlike the one used in prose and conversation--Koch clarifies the nature of poetic inspiration, how poems are written and revised, and what happens to the heart and mind while reading a poem. Koch also provides a rich anthology of more than ninety works from poets past and present. Lyric poems, excerpts from long poems and poetic plays, poems in English, and poems in translation from Homer and Sappho to Lorca, Snyder, and Ashbery; each selection is accompanied by an explanatory note designed to complement and clarify the text and to put pleasure back into the experience of poetry.

New Addresses

Editura: ALFRED A KNOPF

Anul aparitiei: 2001

Kenneth Koch, who has already considerably "stretched our ideas of what it is possible to do in poetry" (David Lehman), here takes on the classic poetic device of apostrophe, or direct address. His use of it gives him yet another chance to say things never said before in prose or in verse and, as well, to bring new life to a form in which Donne talked to Death, Shelley to the West Wind, Whitman to the Earth, Pound to his Songs, O'Hara to the Sun at Fire Island. Koch, in this new book, talks to things important in his life -- to Breath, to World War Two, to Orgasms, to the French Language, to Jewishness, to Psychoanalysis, to Sleep, to his Heart, to Friendship, to High Spirits, to his Twenties, to the Unknown. He makes of all these "new addresses" an exhilarating autobiography of a most surprising and unforeseeable kind. From the Hardcover edition.

Anul aparitiei: 2004

Mr. Koch's poems have a natural voice, they are quick, alert, instinctive . . . He has vivacity and go, originality of perception and intoxication with life. Most important of all, he is not dull." --Frank O'Hara, "Poetry," 1955 Gathered together for the first time, the exciting, startling early work of one of our finest poets. Writing as a young man in the 1950s, Koch, a member of the now famed New York School along with John Ashbery, Larry Rivers, Frank O'Hara, and others, experimented with the delicate balance between sound and sense to offer a series of poems resembling music or abstract painting. For example, he opens the title poem with: "Bananas, piers, limericks / I am postures / Over there, I, are / The lakes of delectation / Sea, sea you "Also included are a selection of short plays in verse and Koch's innovative masterpiece, "When the Sun Tries to Go On," a poem that "produces a radical reworking of the life-poem myth predominant in American poetics since 'Song of Myself'" (William Watkins, In the Process of Poetry). About "When the Sun Tries to Go On," David Lehman wrote, "Koch takes a great deal of delight in the sounds of words and his consciousness of them; he ...

A Possible World

Editura: ALFRED A KNOPF

Anul aparitiei: 2004

-For the last thirty years or more, Kenneth Koch has been writing the most exuberant poems in America. In an arena where such good spirits are rare, he has become a national treasure. In his book of personal addresses to what has mattered most in his seventy-plus years on the planet, there is a dimension of pathos and joy rare in the poetry of any era.- --National Book Award (2000) finalist citation for New Addresses The three long poems -- -Bel Canto, - -Possible World, - and -A Memoir- -- in this brilliant successor to New Addresses are ambitious attempts at rendering the complete story of a life. Taken together they present a dazzling picture of the pleasures and confusions of existence, as well as the pleasures and difficulties of expressing them. Other poems bring Koch's questioning, lyrical attention to more particular aspects of experience, real and imagined--a shipboard meeting, the Moor not taken, or the unknowable realm of mountaintops. As in all of Koch's work, one hears the music of unconquerable exuberance in stormy conflict with whatever resists it--death, the injustice of power, the vagaries of life in Thailand, China, or Rome. Thomas Disch has written in the Boston ...

"It's lucky for us all that you're holding Koch's collected fiction in your hands right now. Koch's seasons on our earth were blessed ones and these traces, some of them among his last, are gifts."--Jonathan LethemHilarious and profoundly moving, this volume restores to print all the fiction of the writer John Ashbery called "simply the best we have." Koch, who once characterized New York School writing as about "the fullness and richness of possibility and excitement and happiness," imbues his prose with humor, wit, and a beautifully tender exuberance. The Collected Fiction of Kenneth Koch is a must-read for anyone interested in discovering what American literature might still hope to be.Published simultaneously with The Collected Poems of Kenneth Koch (Knopf), Collected Fiction includes Koch's innocent and rambunctious novel The Red Robins, as well as Hotel Lambosa, his book of semi-autobiographical short pieces inspired equally by Hemingway's Nick Adams stories and Yasunari Kawabata's Palm-of-the-Hand Stories.

The Art of the Possible!: Comics Mainly Without Pictures

Editura: PRENTICE HALL

Anul aparitiei: 2004

The Art of the Possible: Comics Mostly without Pictures is infused with the same energetic wordplay, humor, and tenderness as the best of Koch's poems, and illustrated and lettered in his own hand, studded with visual puns and jokes, peopled with recognizable characters from the worlds of arts and letters. Recurring themes and serial comics include: the Brer Comics, starring Brer Fox and his love interest Ella; the Virgil Thompson comics, set in the Chelsea Hotel and featuring Aaron Copland, John Cage, Lillian Hellman, Twiggy, Miles Davis, and other fab figures of the milieu; the Autobiography Comics, which tell of the birth of Koch's daughter Angela; the Artist in his Studio Comics; and the Dead White Man Comics. In the final comic in collection, "Global Charming," Koch writes: "A phenomenon is isolated called 'Global Charming.' Here's what it means: Life on earth becomes more and more delightful," and The Art of the Possible is our best evidence of that assertion. Part journal, part sketchbook, and wholly original, here is a window into the life and art of one of America's most treasured poets and teachers.
