Where Night and Day Become One
43,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Celebrated avant-jazz poet Steve Dalachinsky assembles more than thirty years of writing journals from his trips to Paris in Where Night and Day Become One. His contemplative experimental verse reflects the City of Light in boulevard rain puddles rippling with the sounds of gallery improvisation, is haunted by his ancient graveyard wanderings. In his subconscious musings, he repeats words and phrases, pulling at and twisting them as he considers the legacy of hundreds of years of expatriate art and his own unresolved past left behind in New York. With praise from Clark Coolidge, this is a career embracing retrospective that decisively stakes a claim for Dalachinsky's greatness.

Cachoeira Tales and Other Poems
16,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

Soaring images, rhythmic language, and wry humor come together in these three narrative poems that explore travel from an African American historical and social perspective. A cab ride turns into an amazing encounter with the driver, an amateur physicist whose ideas about space and time travel spark the poet's musings on chutzpah and artistic ambition. A trip to Triolet, a Creole village in the Indian Ocean island nation of Mauritius, leads the poet to ponder the past and present as she reflects on the ironic complexities of the slave trade and its legacy shared by so many peoples. And in 'The Cachoeira Tales,' longing to take her family on a journey to 'some place sanctified by the Negro soul,' the poet finds herself in Brazil's Bahia, along with a theater director, a jazz musician, a retired commercial pilot, an activist, a university student, and two mysterious African American women whom they meet along the way. In rhymed couplets, each pilgrim tells a story, and the result is a rollicking, sensual exploration of spirit and community, with a nod to Chaucer and to traditional Trickster tales. Using her remarkable ability to educate and inspire, Marilyn Nelson demonstrates the power of travel to transform our imaginations. We have long known that travel broadens; in these poems, it also deepens and makes wiser. Joined skin to skin, we moved like molecules in the great, impossible miracle of atmosphere, swaying to the music, all eyes on the stage, all hearts attuning themselves in beautiful polyrhythmy, one shaking booty. On one side of me a young man danced; I felt his muscled warmth flow into mine, his pure, sexual strength. On my other sides young women danced, whose curves bumped me softly, dancing without reserve, hands waving in the air, releasing scent fragrant as nard. We danced in reverent, silent assent to the praise-song of drums. -- from 'Olodum' of 'The Cachoeira Tales'
