  • Page 2: The Writer Who Tried to Save the World
    • Abstract: Some authors have great expectations for their books. But who in their right mind expects their book to be able to save the world'The one hundredth anniversary of one such book is quickly approaching. Its author is well known as are many of his books, some of which have been adapted into movies. But not this one, that is, unless you want to count a Mel Brooks movie with a similar title.While some today might have read this author's most ambitious book, they probably number far fewer than a century ago. And though you might have seen it in on a dusty shelf in a used bookstore, you probably did not know the high expectations under which it was composed and published.The author is H. G. Wells—and the book is Outline ... Read More

  • Introduction to Focus: Genius
    • Abstract: One day, quite some time ago, I happened on a photograph of Napoleon's youngest brother, Jerome, taken in 1852. And I realized then, with an amazement I have not been able to lessen since: "I am looking at eyes that looked at the Emperor." Sometimes I would mention this amazement, but since no one seemed to share it, nor even to understand it (life consists of these little touches of solitude), I forgot about it. My interest in Photography took a more cultural turn. I decided I liked Photography in opposition to the Cinema, from which I nonetheless failed to separate it. This question grew insistent. I was overcome by an "ontological" desire: I wanted to learn at all costs what Photography was "in itself," by what ... Read More

  • The Stakes of Genius
    • Abstract: Paragraph 27 of "The Transcendental Deduction" in Kant's second revised edition of the Critique of Pure Reason (1787) has been a headache to commentators and critics alike of the origin and nature of the transcendental system of categories and their relationship to experience. This is because, uncharacteristically, Kant has recourse to a figurative analogy, as Catherine Malabou explains, from biology. Specifically, it is from the developmental history of embryonic formation, known since Aristotle's day and resurrected by Buffon and others in their time.In order to distinguish how the human mind works to process experience from the view of a pre-established or innate harmony of subject and object worlds, guaranteed ...

  • Why, Oh Why'
    • Abstract: In 1956, to mark the centenary of Freud's birth, Ernest Jones delivered a lecture to the New York Psychoanalytical Society entitled "The Nature of Genius." Surprisingly, Jones pays little attention to Freud's metapsychology, or indeed to any aspect of his theory or method; rather, the essay—which collates various opinions on the subject—offers an essentially Freudian interpretation of a brilliant personality driven by the power of an idea. Jones trots out the Encyclopedia Britannica's definition of genius—"the highest conceivable form of original ability, something altogether extraordinary and beyond even supreme educational prowess"—but, clearly unhappy with this conventionally watertight formulation, proceeds to ...

  • An Anagogical Education
    • Abstract: It sometimes seems that the perennial task of laborers in the vineyard of the liberal arts is to defend that labor, that vineyard, and those arts. That liberal education is under attack on various fronts is as indubitable as it is now tiresome, and in the media covering the state of higher education we see almost daily apologias, jeremiads, and polemics aimed at sounding the increasingly apocalyptic alarm. English majors hear it a lot, of course, as they frequently deal with jokes or jibes, or sometimes earnest warnings, about the uselessness or impracticality of their field of study. Even within universities, we sometimes find ourselves on the defensive from those that the British literary critic Terry Eagleton ... Read More

    • Abstract: White Target, 1957, (encaustic on canvas)That white touchstone named each month, moon pins herself above the hickory; her silver boils. Cherokee call her Cold, Bony, Strawberry, Flower, Planting, Green Corn, Ripe Corn, Drying, Nut, Harvest, Trading, Snow. Since leafless poplar show bones, strawberries fill with juice, red crowns of balm draw bees, acorns rain their hail, she has come closer.Now, May to October, a tarp covers Rognons Glacier. The Swiss try to stop Mont Blanc melting. Some day children will be unable to lie down, arms and legs plow aside the snow, signal their imprints, make legions of snow angels.The Thanatos painter used a white clay slip; Johns' encaustic is thickened, like stirred clay ...

  • Hamilton's Genius
    • Abstract: Lin Manuel Miranda is a contemporary theatre genius. In Hamilton: An American Musical Miranda's genius is almost too obvious as he is able to create a new revolutionary theatre that is, simply stated, cool. He is the undisputed king of Broadway with the ability to revitalize American theatre and bring to it presidents and middle schoolers, both eager to learn the lessons he teaches.In The Birth of Tragedy (1872), Nietzsche asserts and argues for the persistent separation of Dionysian and Apollonian theatre. That is the exact opposite of what Miranda does. He creates a unity of the two forms of theatre, the Dionysian that extols hedonistic, narcissistic, jouisance and a leveling and somewhat level-headed Apollonian ... Read More

  • Writing Genius
    • Abstract: Soon after beginning my M.A. thesis, I discovered myself in a rut and expressed frustration to my advisor. What was the purpose, I asked, of producing another study of an author who already possessed a library's worth of criticism' The question is a familiar one to writers of all varieties. What do I have to contribute' My advisor, borrowing a term from the philosopher Jacques Derrida, told me to cultivate my "scene of writing." He implied that writing is the site where our self or identity comes into existence. Writing, in other words, implicates us in a struggle with the voices that circulate in our mind, the strictures of culture, tradition, and history that define us in advance. Like reading, it is a forum that ... Read More

  • Examining Earth
    • Abstract: Richard Schiffman's first published poetry collection bristles with dazzling metaphors and effervescent language, but the author shows little concern for traditional sound effects, for rhythmic patterns or rhymes. A number of "poems" are written in prose, with no particular poetic element, although often clever and witty. Humor predominates in the middle section of the book, while puns enliven the entire collection. But Schiffman's poems usually contain a serious point; many are clearly philosophical or even theological in intent, and always concrete and precise. A kind of earthy, skeptical, ironic, and limited optimism about divinity, life, and an afterlife prevails. Thus the author expounds an unconventional ... Read More

  • West Bank Story
    • Abstract: In Ronit & Jamil, Pamela Laskin delivers a beguiling young adult novel in verse. As Ronit, an Israeli girl, and Jamil, a Palestinian boy, fall in love and deploy their ingenuity to outwit those who would thwart their romantic relationship, the reader is likely to fall in love with both of these spirited characters. Ronit and Jamil share a passion for one another, as well as a resolve to escape the usual fate of star-crossed lovers.The characters's names intentionally recall those of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet (1597) and Laskin makes the most of this allusion by liberally quoting the bard. While Jamil cites the Muslim poets Rumi and Darwish, Ronit is acutely aware of the similarities between her plight and ... Read More

    • Abstract: What Would Animals Say If We Asked the Right Questions' is a series of twenty-six short essays—from "A for Artists: Stupid like a painter'" to "Z for Zoophilia: Can horses consent'"—in which Vinciane Despret encourages us to "hesitate" before claiming knowledge about other species. In "Y for YouTube: Are animals the new celebrities'," Despret attributes the ever-increasing popularity of animal videos to viewers' fascination with non-humans as "talented beings, remarkable for their heroism, sociality, cognitive and relational intelligence, humor, unpredictability, and inventiveness." Yet even as we marvel at their behaviors and abilities, humans continue to underestimate these beings who cannot plainly tell us what ... Read More

  • Connection & Combustion
    • Abstract: There are virtually no synonyms for the word "air," its omniscient, singular presence ubiquitous and essential. Atmosphere is a close approximation but not comprehensive enough for a work of such complex subtleties as Air. Air carries sounds, scents and sights that stir bodies and emotions. Perceptions, dreams and occurrences morph from individual vantage points, shifting the quality of our own particular air. Poetic repetition of the word acts as a symbolic conductor of our physical and interior worlds. Air is also demeanor, and these archetypal characters traverse cultural and gender boundaries with multiple implications.In this highly imaginative work characters are introduced without cumbersome exposition, the ...

  • Solid Bright
    • Abstract: Michael McClure rides a spirit wind through meat flower breath. For six decades, he has honed a sentient sensibility that conveys ease, peace and wisdom. Shamanistic riffs and Zen zingers ring out among haiku phrasings and Beat chantings in these gemlike verses.As the title Mephistos implies, these are the observations and crystallizations of a silver-haired wizard. At 85, McClure is looking back over his life and looking boldly ahead to life's conclusion. This collection is his first to be published in six years and it is a testament to his enduring artistry. His unique voice seamlessly combines the mortal with the moral—the temporal with the cosmic. These poems are the "blossom of a spiritual occasion / ... Read More

  • The Poetry Business
    • Abstract: In Memoir and an Essay (2010), a memoir of his early days on the New York poetry scene, Michael Gottlieb revealed how an avant-garde movement comes into its own; the young poets attend as many readings as possible, coordinate readings and edit or submit to journals, and do all the menial work associated with these tasks, including putting labels on folded flyers and preparing them for bulk mail. The poetry business can be very time consuming, and that is without even considering the time it takes to write the work in the first place. One wonders how poets manage to pay the rent, since all of these activities offer no financial reward to speak of. The essay "Jobs of the Poets," which is included in his new book ... Read More

  • The Rhetoric of Grief
    • Abstract: In his gut-wrenching and ambitious second novel, Patricide, D. Foy gives the reader two books, and an incisive, linguistic needle to thread them together.The first 258 pages offers a complete, albeit disturbing, story of a young Patrick Rice who endures unthinkable psychological and physical abuse from his mother, who rapes him, and from his father, who beats him. However, as a teenager, Pat manages to escape this hell while exacting a small-but-satisfying revenge on his parents: he defies them by pawning their "fuck-you" of a Christmas gift, a Minolta camera, for what he had really wanted, a guitar; he stands up to his mother and overpowers his father, and then leaves the house, seemingly for good. Not only does ... Read More

  • A Life's Archive
    • Abstract: This long and beautifully written memoir by poet and artist Sabra Moore is an essential archival record of most of the feminist art and political movements in New York City in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s of the last century. Such an amazing array of acronyms—AHC: the Ad Hoc Women Artists' Committee, WIA: Women in the Arts, WAR: Women Artists in Revolution, AWC: Art Workers' Coalition, Fifth Avenue Peace Parade, CRV: Committee of Returned Volunteers, WAC: Women's Action Coalition, Guerilla Girls, HERESIES (a collectively produced and written feminist magazine), Black Emergency Cultural Coalition, WCA: Women's Caucus for Art.Woven into Sabra Moore's descriptions of her work with these many collaborative projects and ...

  • Paying Homage
    • Abstract: Reading Daniel Shapiro's Woman at the Cusp of Twilight is similar to leafing through someone's family photo album. Most of the subjects are no longer living, and the chronology is mixed up, but the faces (and stories behind them) are inviting and real. This gives pleasure.Shapiro introduces his poetic tribute to his maternal relations with a family tree, which for me, was both positive and negative. I began by scrupulously referring back to it as I read each poem, bookmark at the ready, wanting to orient myself to all the relationships and events in their lives. However, at about one-third of the way through, I decided this method was keeping me from appreciating each poem on its own merits. And there are many ... Read More

  • The Wild Beckons
    • Abstract: In her newest collection of short stories Wild Things, Jaimee Wriston Colbert features courageous survivors of a world teetering on the edge of extinction. "We haven't hit invisible yet," says Birdie in "Gravity," who goes on to describe how her town and the rest of Upstate New York is in peril after robotics and outsourcing close down blue collar manufacturing and factory jobs and environmental regulations run lax. These are characters trapped amid the blight and decay of a rural locale, where jobs are as endangered as the species that inhabit the area surrounding the Susquehanna River and despair permeates the atmosphere like pollution. And yet they cling on, desperately, like the Ohia tree in "Things Blow Up," ... Read More

  • Watch the Show
    • Abstract: In "Neither Here Nor There," the speaker, like poet Valerie Bandura herself, left the Soviet Union or "there" in the poem and landed "here," the label used for living in America. Some of the first "Freaks" we meet come from here.Bandura gives us a world in between that permeates this hard-hitting collection. Though these poems are not wholly autobiographical, they push forth a truth that like the freak at the freak show is hard to look at and yet hard to look away from. Jewish immigrants pack up their lives into one or two suitcases and run to save themselves. They sneak the Torah away hidden in strollers, and they dress young boys in old women's clothing to hide them in plain sight against those who want to ... Read More

  • Speaking Out
    • Abstract: The cover of Pearl Stitch does not pull any punches. Immediately we are presented with an image that is simultaneously beautiful and troubling: the bottom half of a woman's face with her mouth open, tongue sticking out and wrapped in intricate lace, dripping with spit. Over the course of the nine chapters of Pearl Stitch, we are presented with a strange mythology, one that shadows the forgotten and abandoned, striving to give them back the things they have lost. Kuppers's stanzagraphs are incantations which bring to life the speaker's journey in search of self, as well as countless other voices that have been robbed of their strength, their space, their identity.Pearl Stitch begins with a Hagiography, presenting us ...

  • Dream and Material
    • Abstract: William Blake's work (here, the opening of his long poem Europe [1794]) is a dream with startling clarity. Europe: A Prophecy begins with an illuminated print of God dividing the heavens (division not being much of a plus in Blake's sense of all things being joined in ultimate freedom and relationship). Blake (the speaker of the poem) listens to a fairy song and captures the fairy, who tells him "My Master, I am yours! command me, for I must obey!" The fairy is the spark of the imagination, which should be used well. The key question he asks the fairy is "Then tell me, what is the Material World, and is it dead'"The answer is a resounding no, i.e. that the world is full of leaves, flowers, music, and each flower is ...

  • Jesus Novel
    • Abstract: Fans of Cooper's earlier novels (Hume's Fork [2007]; Purple Jesus [2010]) may be disappointed to learn that his latest work is not the third offering from the world of Legare Hume, Purvis Driggers, et al. What it is, however, is a far from disappointing, and deceptively facile, "Jesus novel" that, if it suffers from anything, will perhaps suffer from an inability to find the wide readership that it arguably merits.The title is sufficiently indicative: The Gospel of the Twin is a gospel narrative, purportedly written, in the first person, five decades after the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth, by one Judas Didymos Thomas—Jesus's twin brother. Unfolding in a "prologue" and thirty-four "chapters," consisting of ... Read More

  • Familiarly Strange
    • Abstract: For her first collection of short stories, Jen George disregards all of the rules of basic storytelling to give us these five explorations of the modern Western woman's psyche. The result is surreal, uncanny, uncomfortable, indulgent, comic, and compelling. These stories tackle almost all the problems women begin to face as teens and continue to face in various forms throughout life—and they don't pretend there are simple solutions to any of those problems. They also don't sound like a whiny, woe-is-me diary or television drama, nor do they pretend the protagonist must overcome her issues in order to fulfill a higher purpose and become the nowclichéd heroine who is "not like most women."Instead, they demonstrate ...

  • Reefer Sanity
    • Abstract: In Brave New Weed, Joe Dolce envisions what the world of marijuana consumption will look like once other states and countries follow the lead of California, Oregon, Colorado, the Netherlands and Israel—yes, Israel!—and marijuana becomes available ubiquitously for smoking, vaping, chewing and tasting in myriad medicinal and recreational varieties. In this new age, consumers will be able to select from dozens upon dozens of varieties, knowing exactly what kind of high each will produce and/or what medical and health benefits each will provide.Dolce, a former editor-in-chief of Details and Star magazines who has also written for the New York Times, Gourmet and other periodicals, takes readers on an exhilarating, if ...

  • From Our Own
    • Abstract: Joseph Haske's North Dixie Highway is a novel about unfinished business, of the ties that bind, and the suffocating notion of "duty." Haske has crafted a revenge tale that spans two decades, two continents, and at least four generations. Michigan's sparsely-populated Upper Peninsula presses its thickly-forested mass against every page; with Haske's pen as spade, it reluctantly coughs up its skeletal remains, the gorgeously-rendered landscape a pristine yet haunting veneer, at once spacious and claustrophobic. Buck Metzger, progeny of war and a generations-spanning blood feud, narrates, his childhood in the mid-1980s defined by economic hardship and booze-soaked lessons in familial loyalty (think Hatfields and ...

  • Scenes: Two Lines Press
    • Abstract: Could you briefly describe your press's history'We started Two Lines Press in 2013, although the press grew out of the journal Two Lines: World Writing in Translation, which has been publishing continually since 1994. Both the press and the journal are programs of the Center for the Art of Translation, and our main focus is to publish the best international literature in the best translations.The founder of the journal, Olivia Sears, wanted to use the journal to highlight the artistry of translation, something that, at the time, was even more invisible than it is today. In the nineties very few books even listed the translator's name on the copyright page, let alone the cover. It continues to be a challenge that ... Read More
