9780262581585: Such Places as Memory: Poems 1953-1996

The poems of John Hejduk are almost nonpoetic: still lives of memory, sites of possessed places. They give a physical existence to the words themselves and an autobiographical dimension to the architect. Architect Peter Eisenman likens them to "secret agents in an enemy camp."Writing about Hejduk's poems in 1980, Eisenman observed, "Walter Benjamin has said that Baudelaire's writings on Paris were often more real than the experience of Paris itself. Both drawing and writing contain a compaction of themes which in their conceptual density deny reduction and exfoliation for a reality of another kind: together they reveal an essence of architecture itself." This is the first comprehensive collection of Hejduks poems to be published outside an architectural setting.

About the Author:

John Hejduk is an architect and Dean of the Irwin S. Chanin School of Architecture of The Cooper Union, New York. Forty of his poems appeared in a 1980 limited edition portfolio, The Silent Witnesses and Other Poems.

Review:

"John Hejduk's volume [is]... best read as a kind of verbal outrigger to his remarkable, darkly lyrical architectural fables and masques (such as the Lancaster/Hanover, Masque and Vladivostock), Hejduk's poems are not so much pure poetry as they are linguistic structures generated from and attached to his architectural practice... The writing is like a muffled drumbeat. `Poetry and architecture,' notes David Shapiro, `are not just contingent analogues for Hejduk. They are both building arts.'" -- Gary Michael Dault, Azure, November/December 1998

"The building would seem to be done, would be done, and beautifully so, by a lesser viewer-poet; but Hejduk, the architect himself, the enduring educator, the draftsman and designer extraordinary, sees beyond to the resurrections not there, to the height Gothic spires also aspire to: and you?/you simply evaporated into the heavens. Directly addressing the sculptor, Hejduk authorizes Michelangelo's ascension. He crowns what he has made us see with the transcended spirit we have previously only known to call great, immortal. For such a single gift of recalled sight and sound building, I would buy and praise any book of poems. I tell you, though, that Such Places as Memory exhibits many such wonders." -- Ronald Christ, New Mexican (Santa Fe, NM), November 15, 1998
