On the Spectrum of Possible Deaths

Honored as one of the "100 Notable Books of 2012" by The New York Times Book Review" The poems in On the Spectrum of Possible Deaths are taut, lucid, lyric, filled with complex emotional reflection while avoiding the usual difficulties of highbrow poetry." — New York Times Book Review

"Perillo has long lived with, and written about, her struggle with debilitating multiple sclerosis. Her bracing sixth book of poems, published concurrently with her debut story collection, takes an unflinching, though not unsmiling, look at mortality. Perillo has a penchant for dark humor, for jokes that stick." — Publishers Weekly, starred review

"Perillo's poetic persona is funny, tough, bold, smart, and righteous. A spellbinding storyteller and a poet who makes the demands of the form seem as natural as a handshake, she pulls readers into the beat and whirl of her slyly devastating descriptions." — Booklist

"Whoever told you poetry isn't for everyone hasn't read Lucia Perillo. She writes accessible, often funny poems that border on the profane." — Time Out New York

"Lucia Perillo's much lauded writing has been consistently fine — with its deep, fearless intelligence; its dark and delicious wit; its skillful lyricism; and its refreshingly cool but no less embracing humanity." — Open Books: A Poem Emporium

The poetry of Lucia Perillo is fierce, tragicomic, and contrarian, with subjects ranging from coyotes and Scotch broom to local elections and family history. Formally braided, Perillo gathers strands of the mythic and mundane, of media and daily life, as she faces the treachery of illness and draws readers into poems rich in image and story.When you spend many hours alone in a room

you have more than the usual chances to disgust yourself—

this is the problem of the body, not that it is mortal

but that it is mortifying. When we were young they taught us

do not touch it, but who can keep from touching it,

from scratching off the juicy scab? Today I bit

a thick hangnail and thought of Schneebaum,

who walked four days into the jungle

and stayed for the kindness of the tribe—

who would have thought that cannibals would be so tender?

Lucia Perillo's Inseminating the Elephant (Copper Canyon Press, 2009) was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and received the Bobbitt award from the Library of Congress. She lives in Seattle, Washington.

On The Wings of Hope. Prose

Collection of stories

Wisdom of future, present and past

Now we are releasing at the long last.

Let's celebrate now, sing and dance

Of those, awakening at once.

Piercing fast other's anger and fear,

Book will be born in required year.

Let then each one dive in himself -

Him Book will aid in finding true self.

Whether is matter where it came from ?

Let it be called as the "Book of the Freedom".

Having become free, you will see fetters of others. Trying to remove these fetters, you will create hatred. Fetters can be broken only by those realized them.

Truly free is reasonable, yet not clever.

Truly free is innocent, yet not a child.

Truly free is capable to trust, but himself.

Truly free has no dreams.

Truly free is free to aid sleeping ones awake.

Such is the truly free one.

It's possible to read the book and not understand it - but it's impossible to understand book, without having read it. Let everyone find their own understanding.

Once and for All: The Best of Delmore Schwartz

With his New Directions debut in 1938, the twenty-five-year-old Delmore Schwartz was hailed as a genius and among the most promising writers of his generation. Yet he died in relative obscurity in 1966, wracked by mental illness and substance abuse. Sadly, his literary legacy has been overshadowed by the story of his tragic life.

Among poets, Schwartz was a prototype for the confessional movement made famous by his slightly younger friends Robert Lowell and John Berryman. While his stories and novellas about Jewish American experience laid the groundwork for novels by Saul Bellow (whose Humboldt’s Gift is based on Schwartz’s life) and Philip Roth.

Much of Schwartz’s writing has been out of print for decades. This volume aims to restore Schwartz to his proper place in the canon of American literature and give new readers access to the breadth of his achievement. Included are selections from the in-print stories and poems, as well as excerpts from his long unavailable epic poem Genesis, a never-completed book-length work on T. S. Eliot, and unpublished poems from his archives.

  •  Песни Первой французской революции
     Поэзия, Драматургия, Поэзия

    (Из вступительной статьи А. Ольшевского) Подводя итоги, мы имеем право сказать, что певцы революции по мере своих сил выполнили социальный заказ, который выдвинула перед ними эта бурная и красочная эпоха. Они оставили в наследство грядущим поколениям богатейший материал — документы эпохи, — материал, полностью не использованный и до настоящего времени. По песням революции мы теперь можем почти день за днем нащупать биение революционного пульса эпохи, выявить наиболее яркие моменты революционной борьбы, узнать радости и горести, надежды и упования не только отдельных лиц, но и партий и классов. Мы, переживающие величайшую в мире революцию, можем правильнее кого бы то ни было оценить и понять всех этих «санкюлотов на жизнь и смерть», которые изливали свои чувства восторга перед «святой свободой», грозили «кровавым тиранам», шли с песнями в бой против «приспешников королей» или водили хороводы вокруг «древа свободы». Мы не станем смеяться над их красными колпаками, над их чрезмерной любовью к именам римских и греческих героев, над их часто наивным энтузиазмом. Мы понимаем их чувства, мы умеем разобраться в том, какие побуждения заставляли голодных, оборванных и босых санкюлотов сражаться с войсками чуть ли не всей монархической Европы и обращать их в бегство под звуки Марсельезы. То было героическое время, и песни этой эпохи как нельзя лучше характеризуют ее пафос, ее непреклонную веру в победу, ее жертвенный энтузиазм и ее классовые противоречия.
