  • Abundance from the Desert: Classical Arabic Poetry

    • Published: March 2011
    Abundance from the Desert provides a comprehensive introduction to classical Arabic poetry, one of the richest of poetic traditions. Covering roughly the years 500-1250 CE, Farrin provides original translations and illuminating discussions of a number of major Arabic poems from a variety of genres. The poems are presented chronologically, each situated within a specific historical and literary context. Together, the selected poems suggest the range and depth of expression; read in sequence, they suggest the gradual evolution of a tradition.Moving beyond a mere chronicle, Farrin outlines a new approach to appreciating classical Arabic poetry based on an awareness of concentric symmetry, in which the poem's unity is viewed not as a linear progression but as an elaborate symmetrical plot. In doing so, the author presents these works in a broader, comparative light, revealing connections with other literatures. The reader is invited to examine these works not as isolated phenomenaùnotwithstanding their uniqueness and their association with a discrete traditionùbut rather as part of a great multicultural heritage.This pioneering book marks an important step forward in the study of Arabic poetry. At the same time, it opens the door to this rich tradition for the general reader.
  • Active Aesthetics: Contemporary Australian Poetry

    • Published: April 2016
    Poetry. A collection of work by innovative Australian poets whose work shares an interest in "a primary art of transformation in language" (from the introduction). All contributors traveled to the San Francisco Bay Area in April 2016 to participate in a four-day meeting with similarly-committed U.S.-based poets. The title of the event is also that of the anthology, which its editors intend as an extension and prolongation of the April gathering. ACTIVE AESTHETICS brings news across the Pacific and across the equator of Australia's current radical poetry and poetics. As is true of new poetry in the US, much of the work here reflects the complexity and urgency of political thinking within the aesthetic sphere. Contributors: Pam Brown, a.j. carruthers, Bonny Cassidy, Stuart Cooke, Ali Cobby, Chris Edwards, Kate Fagan, Michael Farrell, Toby Fitch, elena gomez, Matthew Hall, Natalie Harkin, Marty Hiatt, Fiona Hile, Jill Jones, Nick Keys, Sam Langer, Kate Lilley, Astrid Lorange, Kent MacCarter, Philip Mead, Peter Minter, Ella O'Keefe, Luke Patterson, Gig Ryan, Amanda Stewart, John Tranter, Ann Vickery, Corey Wakeling, Jessica Wilkinson, R D Wood, and Ouyang Yu.
