Susanne Schmid, Byron - Shelley - Keats. Ein biographisches Lesebuch.
ISBN 3-423-12627-2, 19,90 DM Reviewed by Thomas Rommel
Download as pdf Published 10.5.2000 This reader introduces a German-speaking audience to three English romantic poets, Byron, Shelley, and Keats. All three of them have been and still are immensely popular on the continent, and their biographies, rather than their poetry, epitomize English romanticism to a non-academic readership: they were rebellious outsiders, they spurned society, travelled the continent, and all three died, tragically, very young. Their poetry has been anthologized rather frequently, and German translations abound in miscellanies of sentimental and romantic verse. This is where Susanne Schmid takes up her introduction to the three poets. Her book takes the biographies of Byron, Shelley, and Keats as a starting point and subtly introduces a range of influences that shaped their concepts of man and society, which eventually found their expression in their poetry. If a non-academic audience most readily associates the poets with aristocratic genius overwhelmed by sentimental feelings of love or , this introduction contextualizes the role of concepts ranging from aristocracy and elitism to homophobia and free love and the constraints of a highly commercialized literary market. The book is advertised as an introduction that allows the reader to re-explore these canonized poets who have been stylized to mythical status, and the main emphasis of this book is on "introduction".

Below is a snapshot of a few great web sites for educational purposes (specifically English Language Arts). Each site has my own personal annotation, and may be either more or less helpful to you as it is to me. When deciding which web sites to include, I considered the many needs of the teacher and the student. Poetry, grammar, literature, drama, classroom management, and internet safety are among the topics I chose to include. The third site listed began to be taken down after I posted this page. But depending on how quickly the destruction process, you may be able to find some helpful information. I have used the site for years now and have certainly benefited from the wealth of information included. All the other sites are working, as of April 2003. I hope you benefit form the different sites and please email me if you come across another great educational internet site that I should include.

55. Jane Kenyon-A Literary Life Review
5) The task of the poet is to extend beyond the Here we see the specific poetic principles themost intriguing features of this critical biography is Timmerman
Jane Kenyon: A Literary Life John H. Timmerman
Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Company
2002, 257 pages Reviewed by Pamela Johnson Critical biographies are sometimes more about the literary theories of the author of the biography than they are about the subject of the biography. Not so here. John Timmerman’s writing is both invocation (a formula for conjuring) and evocation (imaginative re-creation) and I found myself drawn deeply into the life, craft, and presence of Jane Kenyon through his work in Jane Kenyon: A Literary Life . It is Jane Kenyon that I see more clearly. It is the fierce work of poetry that I see more clearly. It is the truth and shadow of my own life that I see more clearly as a result of Timmerman’s careful and care-filled exploration. Timmerman is interested in Jane Kenyon’s spiritual journey and he uses her own words to trace that path through “Woman, Why Are You Weeping?” where belief is honed on the edge of doubt and anguish to the quiet assurance of “Let Evening Come.” He shares a story about a spiritual awakening in Jane’s early adulthood that she says changed her whole way of being in the world. She “relaxed into existence,” she once told Bill Moyers, after a particularly strong vision in which she took her place in a buoyant, shimmering, undulating stream of light. She relaxed into existence and the intertwined, simultaneous nature of beauty and suffering became powerful themes made visible by the intense, sparse, precise, luminous particularity of her poetry. “Jane’s spirituality,” says Timmerman,” was never a means for escaping existence. Rather, it enabled her to embrace reality with all its gritty beauty and intrusive suffering.”

Aha Poetry!

Jane Reichhold and Werner Reichhold
Got a tiger in your tanka? Know about symbiotic poetry? Aha Poetry! is the place to learn about the new developments of verse. Aha Poetry began back in 1985 with Tundra Wind (Jum Wilson) who began Lynx as an APA renga. Renga is a Japanese form of collaborative poetry that originated when Bashi and Sorci occupied themselves by writing in dialogue during a long journey. The form is rather complicated and develops through the participants' ability to link the separate stanzas together using a specific form. The form transferred across the Pacific in the 80's and was adapted for English language. Lynx first appeared in the PNW as a small folio from Tundra, but its appearance caused a reaction from other groups exploring oriental forms. Two other groups joined Tundra and Jean Reichhold transformed the paper version onto electronic medium which then was new technology. This expanded the entire concept of symbiotic poetry because people could be in different parts of the world but simultaneously communicate and write together. The enlarged group was associated with Exquisite Corpse. What started small grew big. Different forms were added to the original folio so that Lynx included tanka, ghazal, renga, haiku, cinquain and sijo. The site contains essays on the historic origins of the forms as well as critical analysis of how they are written. There are links to other sites involved with oriental verse forms, poet profiles and book reviews to which you can contribute. The site is interactive, so if you're interested in these forms or their history, then jump in and swim!
