Oklahoma Tough: My Father, King of the Tulsa Bootleggers

Editura: UNIV OF OKLAHOMA PR

Anul aparitiei: 2005

Wayne Padgett was a colorful, charming, and generous man. He was also one of Oklahoma's most elusive bootleggers and career criminals. From the 1960s into the 1980s, he operated out of Tulsa as a high-ranking member of the outfit known as the Dixie Mafia. In Oklahoma Tough, poet Ron Padgett tells the inside story of his notorious father and of how he earned his reputation as a Robin Hood "King of the Bootleggers." Oklahoma Tough is also a history of the distinctive mid-twentieth-century Oklahoma milieu that made Wayne Padgett's life story possible. Ron Padgett brings this vanished world to life with candid and sometimes comic descriptions of criminal life. Particularly insightful and entertaining are interviews in which former bootleggers, family members, friends, and enemies speak openly about their lives.

Editura: KESSINGER PUB LLC

Anul aparitiei: 2004

"When someone we love dies, most of us do something to keep them from completely vanishing. We summon up memories of them, we talk about them, we visit their graves, we treasure photographs of them, we dream about them, and we cry, and for those brief moments they are in some way with us. But when my friend Joe Brainard died, I knew I was going to have to do something beyond all these."So begins Ron Padgett's warm, conversational memoir--the unlikely and true story of two childhood friends, one straight and one gay, who grew up in 1950s Oklahoma, surprised their families by moving to New York City in search of art and poetry, and became a part of the dynamic community of artists and writers whose work continues to shape American culture.Much of this intimate memoir is told in Joe's own direct and unforgettable voice. Dozens of letters, journal entries, poems, photographs, and artworks create a stirring portrait of the times--one that illuminates not only Joe Brainard's life and art, but the influence that his kindness and insight had on the lives of his contemporaries, including Alex Katz, Andy Warhol, Frank O' Hara, Joe LeSueur, Anne Waldman, John Ashbery, Kenward Elmslie, and ...

How to Be Perfect

Editura: KESSINGER PUB LLC

Anul aparitiei: 2007

"Ron Padgett makes the most quiet and sensible of feelings a provocatively persistent wonder."--Robert CreeleyRon Padgett has reenergized modern poetry with exuberant and tender love poems, with exceptionally lucid and touching elegies, and with imaginative and action-packed homages to American culture and visual art. He has paid tribute to Woody Woodpecker and the West, to friends and collaborators, to language and cowslips, to beautiful women and chocolate milk, to paintings and small-time criminals. His poems have always imparted a contagious sense of joy.In these new poems, Padgett hasn't forsaken his beloved Woody Woodpecker, but he has decided to heed the canary and sound the alarm. Here, he asks, "What makes us so mean?" And he really wants to know. Even as these poems cajole and question, as they call attention to what has been lost and what we still stand to lose, they continue to champion what makes sense and what has always been worth saving. "Humanity," Padgett generously (and gently) reminds us, still "has to take it one step at a time." Ron Padgett is a celebrated translator, memoirist, teacher, and, as Peter Gizzi says, "a thoroughly American poet, coming sideways ...

How Long

Editura: KESSINGER PUB LLC

Anul aparitiei: 2011

Ron Padgett's title poem asks: "How long do you want to go on being the person you think you are? / How Long, a city in China." With the arrival of his first grandchild, Padgett becomes even more inspired to confront the eternal mysteries in poems with a wry, rueful honesty that comes only with experience, in his case sixty-eight years of it.I never thought, forty years ago, taping my poems into a notebook, that one day the tapewould turn yellow, grow brittle, and fall offand that I'd find myself on hands and kneesgroaning as I picked the pieces upoff the floorone by oneRon Padgett is a celebrated translator, memoirist, and "a thoroughly American poet, coming sideways out of Whitman, Williams, and New York Pop with a Tulsa twist" (Peter Gizzi). His poetry has been translated into more than a dozen languages and has appeared in The Best American Poetry, The Norton Anthology of Postmodern American Poetry, The Oxford Book of American Poetry, and on Garrison Keillor's Writer's Almanac. He was also a guest on Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion in 2009.

Gathering the work of more than fifty years, Ron Padgett's Collected Poems is the record of one of the most dynamic careers in twentieth-century American poetry. Padgett's poems reverberate with his reading and friendships, from Andrew Marvell to Woody Guthrie and Kenneth Koch. Wry, insightful, and direct, they offer readers the rewards of his endless curiosity and generous spirit.From "Glow": When I wake up earlier than you and youare turned to face me, faceon the pillow and hair spread around, I take a chance and stare at you, amazed in love and afraidthat you might open your eyes and havethe daylights scared out of you.

The Collected Writings of Joe Brainard

Editura: CAMBRIDGE UNIV PR

Anul aparitiei: 2012

An artist associated with the New York School of poets, Joe Brainard (1942-1994) was a wonderful writer whose one-of-a-kind autobiographical work I Remember ("a completely original book" -Edmund White) has had a wide and growing influence. It is joined in this major new retrospective with many other pieces that for the first time present the full range of Brainard's writing in all its deadpan wit, madcap inventiveness, self-revealing frankness, and generosity of spirit. The Collected Writings of Joe Brainard gathers intimate journals, jottings, stories, one-liners, comic strips, mini-essays, and short plays, many of them available until now only as expensive rarities, if at all. "Brainard disarms us with the seemingly tossed- off, spontaneous nature of his writing and his stubborn refusal to accede to the pieties of self-importance," writes Paul Auster in the introduction to this collection. "These little works . . . are not really about anything so much as what it means to be young, that hopeful, anarchic time when all horizons are open to us and the future appears to be without limits." Assembled by the author's longtime friend and biographer Ron Padgett and including fourteen ...

The Big Something

Editura: FOR DUMMIES

Anul aparitiei: 1990

Poetry. Ron Padgett's poems are remarkably clear, almost invisibly so, like a refreshing glass of cold water poems in which he goes nit-picking with the OED, uses Tulsa plain-speak in the diction of Blaise Cendrars, turns and looks back at the food he has set out and sees it is a painting by Fairfield Porter, builds his wooden dream house, and all a little askew, as the world is. His GREAT BALLS OF FIRE have become indeed THE BIG SOMETHING."

Albanian Diary

Editura: JOSSEY BASS

Anul aparitiei: 1999

Travel Writing. Cultural Studies. For one hot week in June of 1995, poet Ron Padgett toured little-known, isolated Albania, in the company of five fellow American and several Albanian writers and editors. With his lively interest in languages, keen eye for detail, and growing sympathy for the difficulties of the long, repressive period from which Albania was just emerging, Padgett documents the country's sights and sounds, its people and places, and its many surprises. His deft prose shines a clear light on this enigmatic country and its fiercely proud people, so hospitable to strangers, so potentially explosive among themselves. Ron Padgett serves as Publications Director of Teachers & Writers Collaborative and teaches Imaginative Writing at Columbia University.

"Make eye contact with a tree." "Do not practice cannibalism." "Wear comfortable shoes." "Sing, every once in a while." "In later life, become a mystic."

His work has been translated into eighteen languages. Jason Novak is a cartoonist whose work has appeared in the New Yorker the Paris Review and the Believer among other places.
