    “The voice [in Anele Rubin’s poems] is so new, and but the circulate is so crafty, sophisticated, and modest—there are by no means any theatrics in those poems.

The emotional diversity of her poems, like theirs, is big, as is the variety of locales, a lot of which i do know good, and but in attempting to converse, they seem with a readability that had eluded me.” —Phillip Levine, pass judgement on “Anele Rubin’s poems light up an extraordinary variety of emotional event. visible, tactile, easy and intricate, her phrases trap you from poem to poem—sometimes beautiful, occasionally austere, consistently original.” —Ruth Stone “This is a strong and wonderfully lyrical publication of serious knowledge, whose topic is emotional resurrection.” —Toi Derricotte

  • New PDF release: Sprung ins Blaue / Sobresalto al vacío (German Edition)

    By María Elena Blanco,Marie-Thérèse Kerschbaumer,Wolfgang Ratz

    ISBN-10: 3990292048

    ISBN-13: 9783990292044

    Nicht viele Dichter verfügen über die visionäre Bravour und Tiefgründigkeit, den Farb- und Formenreichtum, wie sie die kubanische Lyrikerin María Elena Blanco in Sobresalto al vacío entfaltet. Abseits der vielfältigen Tendenzen und Schulen von Lezamas Barock bis zu Nicanor Parras Antipoesie, die während der letzten Jahrzehnte die spanischsprachige Dichtung geprägt haben – Richtungen und Schulen, die María Elena Blanco ironisch als "Jenseitskanon" bezeichnet –, erfi ndet sie diese gleichzeitig neu in Textanordnungen, wo die Echos, inneren Resonanzen, Kontrapunkte eine Virtuosität erreichen, die ans Meisterliche grenzt, ohne je in die Falle der Abstraktion zu tappen. Im Gegenteil, es handelt sich um eine Poesie, die randvoll ist mit den Fakten der Wirklichkeit, dem Blut der Dinge und Geschehnisse. Die Lyrik María Elena Blancos bewegt sich auf verschiedenen physischen und geistigen Schauplätzen, wo sich die Sehnsucht, die Geschichte, die Kultur, die Sprachen verfl echten und ihre Grenzen verwischen. Das in sieben Teile gegliederte Werk ist eine bewegende Elegie an verlorene Orte und Menschen, Begegnungen mit Personen und Regionen, die der Geschichte oder dem Vergessen anheimfielen: Städte, Grabstätten, Havanna, Österreich, die erotischen Tempel von Khajuraho in Indien, die Brände Valparaísos. Sie alle erscheinen kraft der Sprache, als würden sie von Neuem geboren, strahlend und den Worten verbunden, die sie beschwören … Sobresalto al vacío ist das essenzielle Buch einer essenziellen Autorin, eine Lektion in Dichtung und Menschlichkeit. - Raúl Zurita
