These poems and prose texts confront the bewilderments and emergencies of ordinary life, for which we never seem to be prepared and which leave us in danger of becoming ghosts of our own exhaustion. A stark, enraged humor gives the work a brutal yet strangely delicate physical presence. “His work is remarkable for its imagery, often startling and violent, but always vividly real.” -Helen Adams

Chris Tysh

These are poems of a rare and exquisite composure. A sonorous, achingly precise cry from the heart, an antidote to “mock the grotesque braggadocio. Chris Tysh has drawn her sword, and it is a weapon of great beauty: razor sharp and shimmering, a thing that cuts to the quick.” -Paul Auster

“The very fact that we call heraldic symbols ‘devices’ makes them vulnerable to another realm – the poetic – where prerogatives can (and, as Chris Tysh believes, should) be rethought and ultimately dispersed. Tysh’s writing doesn’t say we shouldn’t be somewhere, but it acts out a being there in a different (gorgeous and unpunishing) way.” -Lyn Hejinian

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, M.D., is the woman who has transformed the way the world thinks about death and dying. Beginning with the groundbreaking publication of the classic psychological study On Death and Dying, through her many books and her years working with terminally ill children, AIDS patients and the elderly, Kubler-Ross has brought comfort and understanding to millions coping with their own deaths or the deaths of loved ones. From her work in war-ravaged Poland to her pioneering counseling of the terminally ill, to her legendary seminars on death and dying at the University of Chicago, to her eye-opening discussions with those who had been revived after death, each experience provided Kubler-Ross with a piece of the puzzle. In a culture determined to sweep death under a carpet and hide it there, Kubler-Ross consistently defied common wisdom to bring it into the light and hold it there for us to see and not be afraid.

In The Cocoon and the Butterfly, drawing on thousands of accounts of “near death experiences” that she has accumulated over the years from persons of all ages and circumstances, Dr. Ross develops the image of the butterfly’s emergence from a cocoon as a symbol for the new beginning that such experiences portend for us when we die.

Martin Wallen, Ed.

This edition of “Ancient Mariner” makes available for the first time all the versions of the poem published over thirty years in Lyrical Ballads, Sybilline Leaves, and the 1828 Poetical Works, as well as those confined to notebooks and private copies. The juxtaposition of revisions in parallel text avoid granting privilege to any one version, making Coleridge’s changes evident in full detail. Tracing the complex history of the poem’s publication, the accompanying commentary places this edition in the context of Romantic scholarship and raises many critical issues for the understanding of Coleridge’s most widely known and studied poem. As Donald Ault comments in the Introduction, “Whereas Coleridge’s ‘Mariner’ stood out in the early 19th century as a radical impertinence, an incommensurable text that needed to be tamed, Wallen’s Mariner can celebrate its unreadable intrusion (and revision of) a critical tradition that has too easily believed that Coleridge knew what he believed.”

Rose Drachler

“Rose Drachler’s first published poems appeared when she was in her fifties. She is such a remarkable poet that it makes me wonder why all poets don’t wait until they’re fifty. Her work contains the lucid simplicity of a parable—if it’s well told—easily leads you into (and through) familiar realms only to deposit you at the edge of a great mystery. Her rigorously crafted work is layered in what is sacred and transformational. Her poetry welcomes the immediate world with wisdom and tenacity; it is a marvelous decoding of appearances that illuminates the very heart of our awareness.”
– Gregory Kolovakos (in presenting The American Book Award 1981 on behalf of The Before Columbus Foundation)

“So her book — like all poem-books since Whitman brought the message home—is the life, the song of herself created in the work. “My own,” she says, “I do not conceal/ Or deny what I am”: a Jewish woman into her late 60s: who has been (for how long?) like those secret wise men in each generation, one of the 36 poets whose work stays hidden in the world.”
– Jerome Rothenberg

The aim of this unique how-to book is to address the often unmet need of the aged, the ill, and the dying for intimate, nurturing contact. Compassionate touch, as defined by the author, is a gentle, sensitive, and non-intrusive program of massage, touch therapy, and comfort care, supported by such helping skills as active listening, reflective communication, intuitive feedback, guided relaxation, and breathing awareness. It aims to ease both physical and emotional pain, in a way that medication and medical procedures simply cannot. Written with great clarity and sensitivity, this is an ideal book for massage therapists and bodyworkers looking to expand their skills; furthermore, it is an essential reference for all caregivers and family members.

Alfred A. Tomatis

This autobiography was originally published in French (1977). The Tomatis Method, which helps develop listening and communication skills, is used in 15 different countries. Tomatis addresses his experience with some of the most difficult therapeutic and educational problems (e.g., stuttering, autism, dyslexia, balance, motor control, and integration) and shows how they are affected and controlled by the ear. His account will be welcomed by speech therapists, performing artists, educators, and psychotherapists.

“What Tomatis has done with sound and hearing is virtually a Copernican revolution.” -Jean Houston, Ph.D., author of The Possible Human

“Tomatis’ work is the long awaited foundation for what may well be the most important research in sound, learning and health.” -Don Campbell, author of Introduction to the Musical Brain and Rhythms of Learning

“In the tradition of Buckminster Fuller, Emanuel Swedenborg and Nicola Tesla, Tomatis is an irrepressible pioneer.” -Marilyn Ferguson, author of The Aquarian Conspiracy

Paul Celan

Translated by Susan H. Gillespie

Paul Celan, arguably among the 20th century’s most important European writers, is commonly pigeonholed as a poet of the Holocaust—a term, however, he never used. Susan Gillespsie’s Corona seeks to unwind such facile assumptions about Celan, charting a more idiosyncratic and embracing path through his large oeuvre. As Gillespie writes in her Translator’s Introduction, “The poems, taken as a whole, are invisibly interwoven in what Celan might have termed ‘constellations’ of meaning, which extend beyond individual text to create a harmonic architecture of echoes and references. We are present at the creation of a world, perhaps even a universe of meaning.” Such a totality necessarily includes not only the poet’s well-known works of memory and memorialization, as well as poems on contemporary politics, but are juxtaposed in this collection with love poems, reflections on stays in mental hospitals and the sometimes ribald comedy of life. For even as Celan’s writing is hermetic, it is also resonant with personal grief and longing, to which in varying degree Celan alludes in every poem he writes. Derived from years of study, Gillespie’s translations embody this personal dimension, facilitated by their ease of diction and attention to the “somatic” and rhetorical aspects of Celan’s verse—their sound, gait, tone, and gravity—as well as to their internal and external echoes—or what Roman Jakobson called their “poetic etymology.” Noticing this in Celan’s writing—but applicable to her translations—she writes: “Here, poetry is not what gets lost in translation, it is, itself, an act of translation—of experience and thought—into new language.”

Louise Landes Levi

Louise Landis Levi’s Crazy Louise (or la Conversazione Sacra) is a close view of sexual trauma, a reading and rewriting of the body, political and personal, in a series of poems. A deliberate departure―both from the formal construction of her previous works and from her focus on early (medieval) forms of feminine process and liberation (Sweet on My Lips, the Love Poems of Mira Bai), Levi here works close to home in a personal, often fragmented process. She details and deconstructs conventions relating to maternal instinct, hierarchical lineage and the suffering of female perceptual process within patriarchal constructs unable to recognize it. Levi writes as an “initiate,” redeeming oriental schools of “crazy” (unconventional) wisdom, or open mind, from the debilitating, socially invasive use of this same term in the occidental world. This series of untitled poems comprises writings ca.1992-2002 and serves as an introduction to the poet’s work―indeed unveiling, as the cover portrait of the author by legendary photographer Ira Cohen suggests. As Levi writes, “Ira knew how to look―he could prophesy through the lens. He knew I would one day unveil myself. Dear Reader, you certainly cannot tell a book by its cover―if you could these pages would be written in gold.”

Omar Perez
With an Afterword by the translator, Kristin Dykstra

In 2002, while temporarily living in Europe (mostly Amsterdam), the poet Omar Pérez began writing in a notebook. His journey began as a short professional visit that shifted into something less defined after he fell in love. Eventually the notebook became Cubanology, a book of days reflecting on three years of life at a remove from the island: “A memory of a flight, a journey, jour.” Along with registering common and uncommon vicissitudes of everyday life, the result presents a fusion of languages. Simultaneously national and polycultural, Cubanology streams poetic thought and experience, excerpts from other writings in progress, and the coalescence of a new islandic consciousness – scenes reminiscent of many-minded Odysseus, if home were heart. Visual material appearing throughout Cubanology blends Pérez’s sketches with photographs from that period, as well as art he made after returning to his family home on Havana’s iconic Malécon.

Fall 2018

ADVANCE PRAISE

“Welcoming as the guenmai soup whose making recurs throughout this journal, Cubanology carries the flavors of zen intensives, languages, and housecleaning; Greek retsina and Dutch beer; murmured conversations with books, friends, strangers, cultures, countries, and conditions. Omar Pérez is equally home-leaver and home-maker wherever he travels. Language is his pillow; zazen his backpack; music and imagination’s freedoms his left and right shoes.”

Jane Hirshfield

​”I’m quite taken by Cubanology, a book of the quotidian that rises to the universal. In morning we have zazen, in the afternoon we have language(s) and poetry, then later there is guenmai for 70 people (recipe included: carrots, onions, turnips, celery) but usually just for three or four or one. Are we in Amsterdam, or Athens, Munich? Yes. It is Cubanology, after all, and “He proposied realviciousization,/seated at the deskritorio” is the way poems are written when you are Omar Pérez. Part Pound, part Bolaño, add a Brechtian play, mix in some Hart Crane, spiced with Marianne Moore, Larry Eigner and Paul Hoover (Paul Hoover!), this is a global 24 hours that stretches time to eternity, consolidates place, and with a polyglot sensibility that seems bent on unifying all languages. Reading Cubanology is more like meditating than reading. Which is to say the ritual of the day. Which stays with you, and is tomorrow, the eternal day.”

Bob Holman

“Omar Pérez’s Cubanology is a Book of Days for the new century, a clear-eyed account of his travels in Europe, in the form of journal entries, essays, poems, translations, and meditations dating from 2002-2005. “To one seeking the truth,” he writes, “I offer only this: don’t waste any time.” Hence he schools his readers in the art of making and measuring time according to the precepts of his Buddhist faith, the practice of which provides the scaffolding for this fascinating journey, which suggests that even if, as he writes, “travel intoxicates,” it also reveals the heart and soul of one of the most important artists of our time.”

Namkhai Norbu

The Cycle Of Day And Night by Namkhai Norbu is a practical guide to a fundamental practice of the Dzogchen system of Tibetan Buddhism, presented in a clear and direct manner, written by an acknowledged contemporary master of this ancient tradition. Central to Dzogchen, the “Great Perfection”, is contemplation–the immediate experience of the primordial state of the individual, the unconditioned nature of the mind. This nature of the mind transcends the specific contents of mind, the incessant flow of thoughts reflecting our social, cultural, and psychological conditioning. Based on the teaching by Garab Dorje, the first human master of the Dzogchen lineage, The Cycle Of Day And Night gives a translation of the author’s Tibetan Text, together with a commentary drawn from the author’s extensive oral explanations. Actual methods are given for entering into contemplation and integrating it with our activities during the 24 hour cycle of day and night.

Always an imaginative writer, as The Return of the Goddess (1992) and The Wild Mother (1993) attest, in Daughter of the Shining Isles, Cunningham now mixes Celtic mythology with the emergent feminist tradition of the Magdalen to create a powerful, spiritually charged visionary novel. Daughter of the Shining Isles gives us a Mary Magdalen for our times: Maeve, a feisty Celt, raised by warrior witches to a life of heroism. When she arrives on a magical Druid island, she meets her cosmic twin (J)Esus of Nazareth. Together they become embroiled in an adventure of passion, betrayal, and human sacrifice. Sure to stir controversy, it brings fresh insight into the lost years of the young man called Esus, and the vital young woman who was his equal. Profoundly moving and often outrageously funny, Cunningham’s new novel is storytelling of the highest caliber. Maeve is sure to claim her place among the great literary heroines of our age.

What is of particular note is that here you read the story of no man soaring from height to golden height but an honest recounting and recollecting, blemishes and all, of a life of the spirit via serious hard traveling.

The author, son of an Iraqi father and a Palestinian mother, lived in Lebanon for 17 years; this extraordinary fictionalized memoir derives much of its intensity from Toufic’s exposure to three of the world’s most devastated peoples. Viewing life through the eyes of Nietzsche and Kafka, he deftly turns sitting in a cafe into an autobiographical narrative blended with philosophy and observations on cinema gleaned from his own experience as a filmmaker. The text turns on a metaphoric excavation of an always underway process or state of ‘distraction’– A state which for Toufic is not so much an attitude or level of concentration as it is an ontological modality. Insightful, funny, erotic, at times bizarre,Distracted offers an indelible vision of daily life by a man born on the twin currents of art and history.

Years later, Guliano Dego recovers Markoff’s papers and is at once captured by the drama of Gerson’s life. He travels to Mexico, to Gerson’s clinic in exile, where he observes the method first-hand and uncovers new and shocking facts in the plot to suppress Gerson’s work. In the novel’s gripping denouement, the author finally discovers both the fate of Andrej Markoff and the forces behind international medical collusion.
