Winner of the 2014 National Book Award for Poetry A luminous, seductive new collection from the "fearless" (The New York Times) Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Louise Glück is one of the finest American poets at work today. Her Poems 1962–2012 was hailed as "a major event in this country's literature" in the pages of The New York Times. Every new collection is at once a deepening and a revelation. Faithful and Virtuous Night is no exception. You enter the world of this spellbinding book through one of its many dreamlike portals, and each time you enter it's the same place but it has been arranged differently. You were a woman. You were a man. This is a story of adventure, an encounter with the unknown, a knight's undaunted journey into the kingdom of death; this is a story of the world you've always known, that first primer where "on page three a dog appeared, on page five a ball" and every familiar facet has been made to shimmer like the contours of a dream, "the dog float[ing] into the sky to join the ball." Faithful and Virtuous Night tells a single story but the parts are mutable, the great sweep of its narrative mysterious and fateful, heartbreaking and charged with wonder.

Die atemberaubende Geschichte vom Jungen, der sein Gesicht verlor – komisch, traurig und böse Alina Bronsky erzählt vom Aufbruch aus der Isolation, von der Hoffnung auf Verständnis, von der Sehnsucht, als der erkannt zu werden, der man wirklich ist – und damit von allem, was das Erwachsenwerden ausmacht. Rasend komisch und herzzerreißend traurig, niemals weinerlich, aber immer wieder herrlich böse.Marek traut seinen Augen nicht, als er den Gruppenraum im Familienbildungszentrum betritt: ein Stuhlkreis mit sechs versehrten Jugendlichen, geleitet von einem unrasierten Guru mit sanfter Stimme und langem Haar. Ausgerechnet eine Selbsthilfegruppe! Marek dachte, er würde eine Lerngruppe fürs externe Abitur besuchen, und will mit der »Krüppeltruppe« nichts zu tun haben – doch schon ist er mittendrin und sein Leben steht Kopf. In Alina Bronskys drittem Roman geht es erneut so rasant zu, dass man nicht weiß, ob man gerade lachen oder weinen soll. Ihr jugendlicher Held hat eine Kampfhund-Attacke auf sein Gesicht hinter sich, will mit dem Leben nichts mehr zu tun haben und das Leben nichts mehr mit ihm. Die Nummer seiner Freundin hat Marek auf immer und ewig gelöscht. Auf die Straße traut er sich nur im Dunkeln, und auch dann nur mit Sonnenbrille.Was als ultimative Demütigung beginnt – von seiner alleinerziehenden Mutter in die falsche Gruppe gelockt worden zu sein –, erweist sich bald als große Chance. Eine zickige Schönheit im Rollstuhl, eine zarte Liebe, eine gemeinsame Gruppenfreizeit und ein plötzlicher Todesfall lassen Marek seinen Weltschmerz für immer vergessen.

A Village Life, Louise Glück's eleventh collection of poems, begins in the topography of a village, a Mediterranean world of no definite moment or place: All the roads in the village unite at the fountain. Avenue of Liberty, Avenue of the Acacia Trees— The fountain rises at the center of the plaza; on sunny days, rainbows in the piss of the cherub. —from "tributaries" Around the fountain are concentric circles of figures, organized by age and in degrees of distance: fields, a river, and, like the fountain's opposite, a mountain. Human time superimposed on geologic time, all taken in at a glance, without any undue sensation of speed. Glück has been known as a lyrical and dramatic poet; since Ararat, she has shaped her austere intensities into book-length sequences. Here, for the first time, she speaks as "the type of describing, supervising intelligence found in novels rather than poetry," as Langdon Hammer has written of her long lines—expansive, fluent, and full—manifesting a calm omniscience. While Glück's manner is novelistic, she focuses not on action but on pauses and intervals, moments of suspension (rather than suspense), in a dreamlike present tense in which poetic speculation and reflection are possible.

It is the astonishment of Louise Glück's poetry that it resists collection. With each successive book her drive to leave behind what came before has grown more fierce, the force of her gaze fixed on what has yet to be imagined. She invented a form to accommodate this need, the book-length sequence of poems, like a landscape seen from above, a novel with lacunae opening onto the unspeakable. The reiterated yet endlessly transfigured elements in this landscape—Persephone, a copper beech, a mother and father and sister, a garden, a husband and son, a horse, a dog, a field on fire, a mountain—persistently emerge and reappear with the dark energy of the inevitable, shot through with the bright aspect of things new-made. From the outset ("Come here / Come here, little one"), Gluck's voice has addressed us with deceptive simplicity, the poems in lines so clear we "do not see the intervening fathoms." From within the earth's bitter disgrace, coldness and barrenness my friend the moon rises: she is beautiful tonight, but when is she not beautiful? To read these books together is to understand the governing paradox of a life lived in the body and of the work wrested from it, the one fated to die and the other to endure.

Averno is a small crater lake in southern , regarded by the ancient Romans as the entrance to the underworld. That place gives its name to Louise Glück's eleventh collection: in a landscape turned irretrievably to winter, it is the only source of heat and light, a gate or passageway that invites traffic between worlds while at the same time opposing their reconciliation. Averno is an extended lamentation, its long, restless poems no less spellbinding for being without plot or hope, no less ravishing for being savage, grief-stricken. What Averno provides is not a map to a point of arrival or departure, but a diagram of where we are, the harrowing, enduring presence. Averno is a 2006 National Book Award Finalist for Poetry.

»Sie waren auf dem Land, am Ende der Welt, und es gab kein Zurück.« – Nach dem Tod ihrer Eltern kehren sie für einen Sommer zurück in das alte englische Landhaus: Die vier Geschwister Harriet, Roland, Alice und Fran. Jetzt, in ihren Vierzigern und Fünfzigern, müssen sie entscheiden, ob sie das Haus ihrer Jugend, Erbe ihrer Vergangenheit, bewahren oder verkaufen sollen. Alice, gescheiterte Schauspielerin und unbelehrbare Romantikerin, bringt Kasim, den gerade erwachsenen Sohn ihres Ex-Partners mit, und Roland seine junge Tochter Molly, hübsch und unkonventionell. Sie alle zieht das alte Anwesen in seinen Bann, längst überwunden geglaubte Spannungen lodern wieder auf, und neue erotische Verwicklungen bahnen sich an. Doch auch dieser Sommer geht zu Ende, und über das Haus muss eine Entscheidung getroffen werden.

Nicht zuletzt erzählen sie auch von Freundschaft und Initiation und führen uns auf souveräne Weise vor, wer wir sind und wie wir leben..

Plants In Contemporary Poetry

Positioned within current ecocritical scholarship, this volume is the first book-length study of the representations of plants in contemporary American, English, and Australian poetry. Through readings of botanically-minded writers including Les Murray, Louise Glück, and Alice Oswald, it addresses the relationship between language and the subjectivity, agency, sentience, consciousness, and intelligence of vegetal life. Scientific, philosophical, and literary frameworks enable the author to develop an interdisciplinary approach to examining the role of plants in poetry. Drawing from recent plant science and contributing to the exciting new field of critical plant studies, the author develops a methodology he calls "botanical criticism" that aims to redress the lack of emphasis on plant life in studies of poetry. As a subset of ecocriticism, botanical criticism investigates how poets engage with plants literally and figuratively, materially and symbolically, in their works. Key themes covered in this volume include plants as invasives and weeds in human settings; as sources of physical and spiritual nourishment; as signifiers of region, home, and identity; as objects of aesthetics and objectivism; and, crucially, as beings with their own perspectives, voices, and modes of dialogue. Ryan demonstrates that poetic imagination is as essential as scientific rationality to elucidating and appreciating the mysteries of plant-being. This book will appeal to a multidisciplinary readership in the fields of ecocriticism, ecopoetry, environmental humanities, and ecocultural studies, and will be of interest to researchers in the emerging area of critical plant studies.
