Su questo libro:

Riassunto: A collection of latter-day sonnets depicting the author's life as a lover and a newspaperman. The style is sometimes wry, sometimes lyrical; the tone ranges from comic to romantic to melancholy. The poems contain lovely echoes of John Berryman, Catullus, and Sappho, as well as the 17th Century Metaphysical poets. They are sometimes written in the voice of a persona.

About the Author: Kenton Wing Robinson takes his middle name from his grandmother's maiden name, as it was she who raised him, taught him to read and, when he was still a boy, introduced him to Thomas Carew, her favorite metaphysical poet. He has written poetry since he was nine years old, and he achieved his first recognition as a writer in the eighth grade, when his English teacher intercepted a poem alleging she had sex with hippopotami. He has written reams of poetry since, most of which have been stuffed into drawers to gather dust. Always a bridesmaid, Robinson has seen three of his collections Common Bird Songs, The Execution Club and What It s Made Of be finalists or honorable mentions in various contests. His poems have been published in AGNI, The Worcester Review, The Litchfield Review and a number of other magazines. An award-winning reporter and columnist at The Day in New London, Connecticut, Robinson has been a newsman for most of his life.

Descrizione libro Antrim House, Tariffville, Connecticut, 2008. Pictorial Softcover. Condizione libro: Fine. First Edition. "Like a modern Thales of Miletus, Kenton Wing Robinson buoys his poems with a primal conceit: water as the basis of all things. 'We are, after all, but bodies of water,' he writes, 'constant only in our inconsistancy.' Robinson revives the traditional sonnet form, removes its prissy constrictions and, in the process, evokes the spirits of Homer, Sappho, Catullus and many others in creating a world of deeply felt love, small-town journalisk {'We are whores who deal in words'}, the mundane {covering a parade in Plainville} and the morbidly tragic {reporting on a young girl's suicide. THE WATER SONNETS also offer a view of natural Connecticut you've never seen before. It is, in a word, a delight." {John Surowiecki}. This book has 76 pages. The book is a SIGNED PRESENTATION copy from the author, Kenton Wing Robinson. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Signed by Author. Codice libro della libreria 065133
