Riassunto: Soldatesque / Soldiering: Soldiering Poetry by Anne Waldman Art by Noah Saterstrom With and Introduction by Bill Berkson “The visual idiom unleashed in Noah Saterstrom's online Work-a-Day drawings - improvisational, fragmentary, fluid - is perhaps related to the telling of dreams, and has found marvelous fulfillment in the frieze panels of Soldatesque. One image flows seamlessly into another as the oblique narrative unfolds within a shifting but oddly convincing space. Painted with great intimacy, these images seem perfectly at one with Anne Waldman's simultaneously explicit and enigmatic text.” —Timothy Hyman “‘Be a soldier to thy purpose.’ (Shakespeare) With warrior-like stamina and unrelenting bravura, Waldman offers a template for ‘a different approach’ leading to an aphoristic, ecstatic truth. Here, this truth manifests visually in Saterstrom’s tender, faded images of war. We have seen them and not seen them, we have averted our eyes from them, we have forgotten them...yet how they lurk in our memories and haunt us." —Mónica de la Torre “Here on the home front Anne and Noah’s word-and-image frieze blossoms like an immensely considerate device improvised for those Gentle Reader hands remaining.” —Bill Berkson From Soldatesque / Soldiering: Soldiering is not that simple, take it from “she,” a “she” who left once and was out in the middle of it. Walking toward a small hamlet. —Anne Waldman
About the Author: Anne Waldman Internationally recognized and acclaimed poet Anne Waldman has been an active member of the “Outrider” experimental poetry community, a culture she has helped create and nurture for over four decades, as writer, editor, teacher, performer, magpie scholar, infrastructure curator and cultural/political activist. Her poetry is recognized in the lineage of Whitman and Ginsberg, and in the Beat, New York School and Black Mountain trajectories of the New American Poetry. Yet she remains a highly original “open field investigator” of consciousness, committed to the possibilities of radical shifts of language and states of mind to create new modal structures and montages of attention. Her work is energetic, passionate, panoramic, fierce at times. She is the author of more than 40 books, including the mini-classic Fast Speaking Woman, a collection of essays entitled Vow to Poetry and several selected poems editions including Helping the Dreamer, Kill or Cure and In the Room of Never Grieve. She has concentrated on the long poem as a cultural intervention with such projects as Marriage: A Sentence, Structure of The World Compared to a Bubble, Manatee/Humanity which is a book-length rhizomic meditation on evolution and endangered species, and the monumental anti-war feminist epic The Iovis Trilogy: Colors in the Mechanism of Concealment from Coffe House Press.

His paintings, drawings, installations, video work and text/image collaborations have been shown nationally and internationally, most recently at Yardmeter Editions (Brooklyn, NY), Carol Robinson Gallery (New Orleans, LA), and the Central School Project (Bisbee, AZ). Noah’s print series Memory [Memory] was funded by Arts & Business (Edinburgh, Scotland) and installed at the Lodging House Mission homeless shelter in Glasgow, Scotland (2006).
