Summary

Within the pages of 'Canzoni  Ripostes', readers are treated to a meticulous curation of poetry that propels the avant-garde ethos of the early 20th century to the forefront of literary consciousness. This anthology juxtaposes the Imagist precision of Ezra Pound with the pithy, philosophical brevity of T. E. Hulme, showcasing a spectrum of literary styles that challenge and redefine conventional poetics. The collections overarching themes of modernity, the critique of Romanticism, and the exploration of linguistic economy are explored through varied lenses, making it a seminal compilation for understanding the confluence of ideas that shaped early modernist literature. The contributing authors, Ezra Pound and T. E. Hulme, stand as icons of early modernist movements, with their works collectively signaling a departure from the verbose styles of the 19th century towards more condensed, image-driven expressions. Pounds role as a proponent of Imagism and Hulmes foundational influence on the movement provide a rich historical and cultural backdrop to the anthology. Their contributions, underscored by a shared commitment to innovation, mirror the broader shifts towards modernism and reflect the dynamic interplay between literary forms and the tumult of the early 20th century. 'Canzoni  Ripostes' offers readers an unparalleled opportunity to engage with the foundational texts of modernist literature, presented by two of its most influential figures. This anthology not only serves as a critical educational resource but also as a testament to the power of literary evolution and the ongoing dialogue between tradition and innovation. Admirers of poetry and scholars alike are encouraged to delve into this collection to appreciate the breadth of insight and the multiplicity of perspectives that have shaped the landscape of modern literature.

    The Visionary

    LibriVox volunteers bring you 18 recordings of "The Visionary" by Ellis Bell (Emily Brontë). This was the weekly poem for January 1, 2012. 
     
    The first 12 lines originally appeared in one of a large group of Gondal poems, the word coming from the name of a fictitious island kingdom in a fantasy created by Emily and her sister Anne. When Emily finally consented to have some of her poems published in 1846, along with those of sisters Charlotte and Anne, she selected parts of the Gondal poems and removed all reference to the fantasy land. However, this poem first appeared in a new, expanded edition of the sisters' poetry (in 1850, after both Emily and Anne had died) and was apparently derived as follows: 
     
    "The Visionary (October 9, 1845)This poem is part of the same Gondal poem from which Emily carved "The Prisoner. A Fragment." Charlotte Brontë took lines 1-12 of Emily's original poem, "Julian M. and A.G Rochelle," and added 8 lines of her own. Thus, the positive ending in which the watcher has a spiritual experience is Charlotte's and the watcher may be seen as Emily rather than a Gondal character. In Charlotte's version, it is hard to explain the guiding light in the window of stanze 2."(Source) 
     
    This account is fully supported by other sources. So the poem, as it was published in 1850, is a combination of work by Emily and Charlotte. Charlotte is accused by critics of using a heavy hand in editing some of Emily's formerly unpublished poems for the 1850 volume. (Introduction by Leonard Wilson)

    From the author of the award-winning Tap Out – “a gritty, insightful debut” (Washington Post) – Edgar Kunz’s second poetry collection propels the reader across the shifting terrain of late-capitalist America.  
     Temp jobs, conspiracy theories, squatters, talk therapy, urban gardening, the robot revolution: this collection fixes its eye on the strangeness of labor, through poems that are searching, keen, and wry. The virtuosic central sequence explores the untimely death of the poet’s estranged father, a handyman and addict, and the brothers left to sort through the detritus of a life long lost to them. Through lyrical, darkly humorous vignettes, Kunz asks what it costs to build a home and a love that not only lasts but sustains.
