Dead machine city

Date: 
2005
Abstract: 
Introduction by Wayne Allen Jones- Charlie Newman's poetry comes at you from a ragged left margin, but two lines into any poem and you realize there is nothing ragged about the left of charlie's writing or his vision. His lines, images, ironies, and voice ring with precision and rhythm of tool steel hammers pounding on the hull of the sunken freighter of the body politic looking for survivors...

These offspring, along with her husband of thirty-five years, provide much grist for her poetical mill.”

Marginal State

Catalog Number: 
b.3.26
Date: 
2006
Volume: 
1st ed
Abstract: 
<p>From the introduction: &quot;Poetry as Social Engagement.&quot;</p><p> &quot;Through distilled verse and hard imagery, I expose the effects of our social, cultural, and political practices on the human condition. My poetry explores the twisting of language for both political and personal gain. Growing up in domestic violence taught me about structures of power and dominance, about the use of violence and fear in order to control, and about the role of language in breaking the spirit.&quot;<br /></p>

Decades of Rehearsal

Catalog Number: 
b.3.3
Date: 
2004
Volume: 
1st ed
Abstract: 
Wayne Allen Jones is subject to &ldquo;en-too-ziasms&rdquo; (Southside for not knowing when to stop). This volume is the third in eighteen months. Written in 1999 and 2000, these poems speak with a new voice &ndash; bolder, more forceful, more energetic, more passionate. The risks are manifold &ndash; in subject, point of view, tone, and length &ndash; the history of a steel mill and its workers, the ritual of fathers giving guns to sons, a dramatic monologue from a piece of the cross borne by Jesus, a nine-part study on types of rope, and an even longer poem about a misguided walkabout in the Arizona desert.<br /><br />Shorter poems put breathing room between the longer ones, and many speak to the theme of the first book, Stone Works &ndash; the way people make sense of the world by imposing their own meanings on what they perceive, what happens, and how they respond. <br />
