Mapmaker Revisited

Issue: 
Abstract: 
"In Beatriz Badikian's Mapmaker we are witness to the cartographer's presence as much as we are to the maps themselves - maps made of words, images, lines of exile, travel, love and longing, loss and celebration. As we move from poem to poem, reading, there is increasingly apparent the growth and consistency of a voice, a poetic speech that is quite recognizable the author's own. Fluent in two languages, Beatriz Badikian is touching in her quiet accomplishment, her lyrical strength." -- Ralph J. Mills, Jr.

Oblivion

Catalog Number: 
Book, Fujita
Date: 
2018
Edition: 
first
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
Jun Fujita (1888-1863) was a poet and photographer born outside of Hiroshima, Japan. As a teenager, he emigrated to Canada where he worked as a laborer and train porter in British Columbia. By 1909 he had made his way to Chicago, where he found employment briefly as an actor, and the more enduringly as a photographer for the Chicago Evening Post. In the twenties, Fujita's poems began appearing in Poetry, and in 1923 he published his only book, Tanka: Poems in Exile. Although Fujita is remembered for taking some of the most indelible and horrifying images of the early twentieth century, in his poems and private photography his central fascination was with the natural world. Writing about his relationship to wild flowers, Fujita notes: "I feel that moods are beyond the reach of the camera. But I feel words are too crude for the delicate moods of wild flowers. Whether I have succeeded in portraying the moods of these wild flowers I am not sure. I am trying."

Rust Belt Chicago: An Anthology

Catalog Number: 
Book Rust
Date: 
2017
Edition: 
Volume: 
Issue: 
Abstract: 
Chicago is built on a foundation of meat and railroads and steel, but its identity long ago stretched past manufacturing. A city of opportunity from the get-go, it continues to lure new residents from around the world, and from across a region rocked by recession and deindustrialization. But the problems that plague the Belt don’t disappear once you get past Gary. In fact, they’re often amplified. Chicago’s glittering downtown towers stand in sharp contrast to the struggling south and west sides. A city defined by movement that’s the anchor of the Midwest, bound to its neighbors by a shared ecosystem and economy, Chicago’s complicated – both of the Belt and beyond it. Which makes it a perfect subject for a book.
