    A picture of the Riel Resistance from one of Canada’s preeminent Métis poets
    
    With a title derived from John A. Macdonald’s moniker for the Métis, The Pemmican Eaters explores Marilyn Dumont’s sense of history as the dynamic present. Combining free verse and metered poems, her latest collection aims to recreate a palpable sense of the Riel Resistance period and evoke the geographical, linguistic/cultural, and political situation of Batoche during this time through the eyes of those who experienced the battles, as well as through the eyes of Gabriel and Madeleine Dumont and Louis Riel.
    
    Included in this collection are poems about the bison, seed beadwork, and the Red River Cart, and some poems employ elements of the Michif language, which, along with French and Cree, was spoken by Dumont’s ancestors. In Dumont’s The Pemmican Eaters, a multiplicity of identities is a strengthening rather than a weakening or diluting force in culture.

    A book from the award-winning poet that “bursts with anecdotes and experiences . . . its poems inhabit the psychology and mythology of this Southern town” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch). 
     
    Village Prodigies imagines the town of Cold Springs, Alabama, from 1950 to 2015 and unfurls its narrative reach as six boys—prodigies and swains—grow up and leave the familiarity of home and the rural South. 
     
    Yet all prodigies, all memories, all stories inevitably loop back. Through a multiplicity of points of view and innovative forms, Rodney Jones plays with the contradictions in our experience of time, creating portals through which we travel between moments and characters, from the interior mind to the most exterior speech, from delusions to rational thought. We experience Alzheimer’s and its effect on family, listen to family lore and read family Facebook posts, relive war, and revive half-forgotten folktales and video games. In this deep examination of personal and communal memory, Jones blurs the lines between analog and digital, poetry and prose. 
     
    “A novel in language as dense and lush and beautiful as poetry . . . [or] a book of poetry with the vivid characters and the narrative force of a novel? Whatever you care to call it, it’s a remarkable achievement.” —Richard Russo, Pulitzer Prize–winning author 
     
    “Wonderfully rich and dense; an adventure, a trip, an engrossing read, a Southern golden book of words.” —C.D. Wright, National Book Critics Circle Award-winning poet 
     
    “Any James Dickey connoisseurs or fans of the films of David Lynch or Chris Nolan will feel right at home on these pages . . . This is a gorgeous, thought-provoking, and evocative book of narrative poetry.” —Booklist

    Poetry Hour The - Volume 18

    Poetry is often cited as our greatest use of words.  The English language has well over a million of them and poets down the ages seem, at times, to make use of every single one.  But often they use them in simple ways to describe anything and everything from landscapes to all aspects of the human condition.  Poems can evoke within us an individual response that takes us by surprise; that opens our ears and eyes to very personal feelings. 
     
    Forget the idea of classic poetry being somehow dull and boring and best kept to children’s textbooks. It still has life, vibrancy and relevance to our lives today.  
     
    Where to start? How to do that? Poetry can be difficult. We’ve put together some very eclectic Poetry Hours, with a broad range of poets and themes, to entice you and seduce you with all manner of temptations.   
     
    In this hour we introduce poets of the quality and breadth of Edmund Spenser and Dante Gabriel Rossetti as well as themes on The Female Poet, The Wind & Rain, Evenings and more. 
     
    All of them are from Portable Poetry, a dedicated poetry publisher. We believe that poetry should be a part of our everyday lives, uplifting the soul & reaching the parts that other arts can’t.  Our range of audiobooks and ebooks cover volumes on some of our greatest poets to anthologies of seasons, months, places and a wide range of themes.  Portable Poetry can found at iTunes, Audible, the digital music section on Amazon and most other digital stores.  
     
    This audio book is also duplicated in print as an ebook. Same title. Same words. Perhaps a different experience. But with Amazon’s whispersync you can pick up and put down on any device – start on audio, continue in print and any which way after that.   
     
    Portable poetry – Let us join you for the journey.

    LibriVox volunteers bring you 17 recordings of O Hollow Hollow Hollow by W.S. Gilbert. This was the Weekly Poetry project for January 8, 2012.Here is a poem by the "fleshly" poet, Bunthorne, from the opera Patience, by Gilbert and Sullivan. Who better to introduce it than the poet himself:BUNTHORNE. It is a wild, weird, fleshy thing; yet very tender, veryyearning, very precious. It is called, "Oh, Hollow! Hollow! Hollow!"PATIENCE Is it a hunting song?BUNTHORNE. A hunting song? No, it is not a hunting song. It is thewail of the poet's heart on discovering that everything iscommonplace. To understand it, cling passionately to one anotherand think of faint lilies.Bunthorne was considered to have been modelled on Oscar Wilde, but more recent reseach has suggested that this claim is not correct.
