This is a dangerous book. Great poetry calls into question not less than everything. It dares us to break free from the safe strategies of the cautious mind. It opens us to pain and joy and delight. It amazes, startles, pierces, and transforms us. It can lead to communion and grace. Through the voices of ten inspiring poets and his own reflections, the author of Sacred America shows how poetry illuminates the eternal feelings and desires that stir the human heart and soul. These poems explore such universal themes as the awakening of wonder, the longing for love, the wisdom of dreams, and the courage required to live an authentic life. In thoughtful commentary on each work, Housden offers glimpses into his personal spiritual journey and invites readers to contemplate the significance of the poet's message in their own lives. In Ten Poems to Change Your Life, Roger Housden shows how these astonishing poems can inspire you to live what you always knew in your bones but never had the words for.

Imagine a night of a hundred poets reading their work to an audience of intensely engaged, responsive, and lively people. Imagine the reading taking place under a tent pitched on a grassy lawn that overlooks the Caribbean Sea. Imagine the sun setting, imagine the scent of curried goat and fried fish wafting through the air, imagine the heat, imagine the cool tongue of wind off the sea, imagine a stage like an ancient shrine with a podium artfully pieced together with bamboo, strips of still green wood, leaves, twine, and shells. Imagine one hundred poets, some whose names you know and some you have never heard of, stepping onto the stage, opening their mouths and hearts, and singing out poems of such variety, complexity, beauty, and passion. This is what a poetry reading at the Calabash International Literary Festival is like, and this new anthology provides readers a taste of what this festival offers year after year. Edited by Kwame Dawes and Colin Channer, two of the founders of the festival, this is an exciting example of Calabash's commitment to create a festival that is diverse, inspirational, earthy, and daring each May. This anthology is at once a celebration of ten years of a remarkable literary event as it is a gesture of love to seek ways to continue to fund and support this festival for the future. All profits from this publication will go toward the running of the festival, which remains free and open to the public.

A dazzling collection of essays on how the best poems work, from the master poet and popular essayist "Poetry," Jane Hirshfield has said, "is language that foments revolutions of being." In ten eloquent and highly original explorations, she unfolds some of the ways this is done--by the inclusion of hiddenness, paradox, and surprise; by a perennial awareness of the place of uncertainty in our lives; by language's own acts of discovery; by the powers of image, statement, music, and feeling to enlarge in every direction. Closely reading poems by Dickinson, Bashō, Szymborska, Cavafy, Heaney, Bishop, and Komunyakaa, among others, Hirshfield reveals how poetry's world-making takes place: word by charged word. By expanding what is imaginable and sayable, Hirshfield proposes, poems expand what is possible. Ten Windows restores us at every turn to a more precise, sensuous, and deepened experience of our shared humanity and of the seemingly limitless means by which that knowledge is both summoned and forged.

In 1991, Dana Gioia's provocative essay "Can Poetry Matter?" was published in the Atlantic Monthly, and received more public response than any other piece in the magazine's history. In his book, Gioia more fully addressed the question: Is there a place for poetry to be part of modern American mainstream culture? Ten years later, the debate is as lively and heated as ever. Graywolf is pleased to re-issue this highly acclaimed collection in a handsome new edition, which includes a new Introduction by distinguished critic and poet, Dana Gioia. An acclaimed poet, essayist, anthologist, BBC commentator, and critic, Dana Gioia is the author of Interrogations at Noon, a collection of poems that received the American Book Award, and Nosferatu, a libretto. He was recently nominated to be Chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts and lives in Santa Rosa, California, with his family. National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist When it was originally published in the Atlantic Monthly in 1991, Gioia's landmark article "Can Poetry Matter?" received more public response than any other piece in the magazine's history. This provocative essay collection, a contemporary classic now appearing in a special tenth-anniversary edition and featuring a new Introduction by the author, addresses more fully Gioia's key question: Is there a place for poetry in modern American mainstream culture? "This book is destined to be a classic."—Michael J. Bugeja, Columbus Dispatch "Gioia is an engaged, thoroughgoing, enthusiastic reader, one who infuses us with his passion for poetry. If you're an educated general reader, and you read only one book about contemporary poetry, this should be that book."—Ray Olson, Booklist "No one, I think, has written with greater clarity or greater poignancy—or with a greater sense of urgency, either—about the 'subculture' in which the art of poetry is still confined."—Hilton Kramer, The New Criterion "Can Poetry Matter? is an important book, and anyone who professes to care about the state of American poetry will have to take it into account."—World Literature Today "This book is destined to be a classic."—Michael J.

"I'm just no good at describing how wonderful this book is. Smart and sweet, wild and wicked, brilliantly funny--it's everything a book for kids should be." --BJ Novak, actor and bestselling author of The Book With No Pictures Meet Chris Harris, the 21st-century Shel Silverstein! Already lauded by critics as a worthy heir to such greats as Silverstein, Seuss, Nash and Lear, his hilarious debut poetry collection molds wit and wordplay, nonsense and oxymoron, and visual and verbal sleight-of-hand in masterful ways that make you look at the world in a whole new wonderfully upside-down way. With enthusiastic endorsements from bestselling luminaries as Lemony Snicket, Judith Viorst, Andrea Beaty, and many others, this entirely unique collection offers a surprise around every corner: from the ongoing rivalry between the author and illustrator, to the mysteriously misnumbered pages that can only be deciphered by a certain code-cracking poem, to the rhyming fact-checker in the footnotes who points out when "poetic license" gets out of hand. Adding to the fun: Lane Smith, bestselling creator of beloved hits like It's a Book and The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales, has spectacularly illustrated this extraordinary collection with nearly one hundred pieces of appropriately absurd art. It's a mischievous match made in heaven! "Ridiculous, nonsensical, peculiar, outrageous, possibly deranged--and utterly, totally, absolutely delicious. Read it! Immediately!" --Judith Viorst, bestselling author of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Poetry. This collection includes the work of twenty-four Chinese avant-garde poets, representing the new generation of artists who have emerged over the last twenty years, during a period of tumultuous change in China. A dozen American poets(including Lewis Warsh, Lyn Hejininan and Anne Waldman) worked closely with Wang Ping, a Chinese poet living in this country and the editor of the anthology, to produce translations which have preserved the excitement and clarity of these poems. Here is a chorus of rising voices in contemporary Chinese poetry. Some of them are contemptuous; some brave; some humorous; some desperate ...Together they represent the new poetic sensibiities that have completely shed the shadow of the Misty Poetry. These poems are passionate, defiant, and evocative -- a great pleasure to read -- Ha Jin.
