When the Light of the World Was Subdued, Our Songs Came Through: A Norton Anthology of Native Nations Poetry
United States Poet Laureate Joy Harjo gathers the work of more than 160 poets, representing nearly 100 indigenous nations, into one momentous volume. This landmark anthology celebrates the indigenous peoples of North America, the first poets of this country, whose literary traditions stretch back centuries. Opening with a blessing from Pulitzer Prize winner N. Scott Momaday, the book contains powerful introductions from contributing editors who represent the five geographically organized sections. Each section begins with a poem from the massive libraries of oral literatures and closes with emerging poets, ranging from Eleazar, a seventeenth-century Native student at Harvard, to Jake Skeets, a young Dineh poet born in 1991, and including renowned writers such as Natalie Diaz, Tommy Pico, Layli Long Soldier, and Ray Young Bear. In When the Light of the World Was Subdued, Our Songs Came Through, Harjo offers the extraordinary sweep of Native literature.

Underworld Lit
Reddy is an acclaimed poet and scholar whose previous books have been positively reviewed in outlets such as The New Yorker, the Believer, The Los Angeles Review of Books, and NPR. Reddy also has high profile bylines on poetry at publications such as The New York Times and The New Republic. This is the final book in a trilogy (along with Facts for Visitors and Voyager) loosely based on Dante's Inferno; it has a strong narrative arc, fantastic story-telling aspect, and humor that should appeal to wide audiences. The book is also unified by playful formal innovations, such as the use of facsimiles and images, academic quizzes, and variously translated refrains, that give the book a thematic cohesion. The book has a strong appeal across the humanities, as well, with translation, comparative literatures and mythologies, poetics, and academic life all central components. The book also deals lucidly with cancer and mortality and could equally be read as an off-kilter survivor's story. Reddy is a literature professor at the University of Chicago.

Middle Distance: Poems
After a diagnosis of cancer, acclaimed poet Stanley Plumly found himself in the middle distance-looking back at his childhood in Ohio and a rich lifetime of family and friends, while gazing into a future shaped by the press of mortality. In Middle Distance, his final collection, he pushed onward into new territory in extended hybrid forms and revelatory prose pieces. Blending documentary and memoir with his signature Keatsian lyricism, he contemplated at every turn the horizons of his life. From White Rhino How long a life is too long, as I take my time from here to there, the one world dried- out distances, nose, horn, my great head lifted down, the tonnage of my heart almost more than I can carry . . .

Every Day We Get More Illegal
Many poets since the 1960s have dreamed of a new hybrid art, part oral, part written, part English, part something else: an art grounded in ethnic identity, fueled by collective pride, yet irreducibly individual too. Many poets have tried to create such an art: Herrera is one of the first to succeed. -New York Times Herrera has the unusual capacity to write convincing political poems that are as personally felt as poems can be. -NPR In this collection of poems, written during and immediately after two years on the road as United States Poet Laureate, Juan Felipe Herrera reports back on his travels through contemporary America. Poems written in the heat of witness, and later, in quiet moments of reflection, coalesce into an urgent, trenchant, and yet hope-filled portrait. The struggle and pain of those pushed to the edges, the shootings and assaults and injustices of our streets, the lethal border game that separates and divides, and then: a shift of register, a leap for peace and a view onto the possibility of unity. Every Day We Get More Illegal is a jolt to the conscience-filled with the multiple powers of the many voices and many textures of every day in America.

Nobody: A Rhapsody to Homer
In Memorial, her unforgettable transformation of the Iliad, Alice Oswald breathed new life into myth. In Nobody, she returns to Homer, this time fixing her gaze on a minor character in the Odyssey-a poet abandoned on a stony island-and the sea that surrounds him. Several voices drift in and out of the poem; though there are no proper names, we recognize familiar characters and the presiding spirit of Proteus, the shape-shifting sea-god. Reading Nobody is like watching the ocean; we slip our earthly moorings and follow the circling shoal of sea voices into a mesh of sound and light and water-fluid, abstract, and moving with the wash of waves. one person has the character of dust another has an arrow for a soul but their stories all end somewhere in the sea

Long Division
Long Division is a book of poetic commentary that plots a steady course of disillusion. Working in explicit dialogue with Dada, the surrealist poets, spiritual writing, and drawing on midrash as a wellspring, Gil McElroy captures in poetry the process of a mind in thought. Written in asides and afterwords, comments and commentaries, and interruptions and insertions, these poems challenge and disrupt meaning and intention. Carefully planned and written with an easy confidence, these poems ruminate on time and chance, astronomy and biology, intertextuality and the interplay of the author's and reader's voice. They interrogate and are, themselves, an internal interrogation through which division wends, splitting words into new units of meaning or reassembling them into new shapes unencumbered by the halos of meaning, reference, and allusion they have accrued. This is contemporary experimental poetry at its finest, at once abstract and distinct, celestial and personal, a drama of the mind as it engages with and responds to the world and time. Long Division takes what is complex and explores its simplicity before taking what is expected to be simple and showing it instead to be musical and strange.

The real in Nduka's work carries the resonance not only of his Nigerian identity and experience of political violence but also the dislocation of the emigre and the frightening power relations of intimacy as mapped onto the lyric. -Joyelle McSweeney, Boston Review Facing You is a collection of love lyrics, as well as an exploration of what goes into making the public and private self, from acclaimed Nigerian American poet Uche Nduka. Passionate and erotic, Facing You nonetheless resists being hermetically sealed within the relationship, and is subject to the intrusions of the dubious world : war, exile, protest, and police violence intrude but cannot defeat Nduka's expressions of desire, where reality and surreality are one. These poems were written openly and freely about my vision and experience, he writes, crossing the wires of sex and prophecy.

Seeing the Body: Poems
Poems and photographs collide in this intimate collection, challenging the invisible, indefinable ways mourning takes up residence in a body, both before and after life-altering loss. In radiant poems-set against the evocative and desperate backdrop of contemporary events, pop culture, and politics-Rachel Eliza Griffiths reckons with her mother's death, aging, authority, art, black womanhood, memory, and the American imagination. The collision of text and imagery offers an associative autobiography, in which narratives of language, absence, and presence are at once saved, revised, and often erased. Seeing the Body dismantles personal and public masks of silence and self-destruction to visualize and celebrate the imperfect freedom of radical self-love. From Color Theory & Praxis (II) tell me, what color does your future have? & what will my unborn children forgive when they are asked to love you?

Imagined Romes: The Ancient City and Its Stories in Middle English Poetry
This volume explores the conflicting representations of ancient Rome-one of the most important European cities in the medieval imagination-in late Middle English poetry. Once the capital of a great pagan empire whose ruined monuments still inspired awe in the Middle Ages, Rome, the seat of the pope, became a site of Christian pilgrimage owing to the fame of its early martyrs, whose relics sanctified the city and whose help was sought by pilgrims to their shrines. C. David Benson analyzes the variety of ways that Rome and its citizens, both pre-Christian and Christian, are presented in a range of Middle English poems, from lesser-known, anonymous works to the poetry of Gower, Chaucer, Langland, and Lydgate. Benson discusses how these poets conceive of ancient Rome and its citizens-especially the women of Rome-as well as why this matters to their works. An insightful and innovative study, Imagined Romes addresses a crucial lacuna in the scholarship of Rome in the medieval imaginary and provides fresh perspectives on the work of four of the most prominent Middle English poets.

The Shadow of Dante in French Renaissance Lyric: Sceve's Delie
This book presents an original interpretation of Maurice Sceve's lyric sequence Delie, object de plus haulte vertu (Lyon, 1544) in light of the Vita nova, Commedia [Divine Comedy], and other works of Dante Alighieri, whose subtle influence on Sceve has not been elucidated in depth by scholars, unlike the more evident references to the Canzoniere of Francesco Petrarca. Scholars generally consider the sequence of dense, epigrammatic dizains that comprise Delie to be an early example of French Renaissance imitation of Petrarch's lyric poetry, in a time when imitatio was an established literary practice, signifying the poet's participation in a tradition. While Petrarch's Canzoniere is an important source for Sceve's Delie, both works are part of a long poetic lineage that includes Occitan troubadours. The book argues that the 'Petrarchan' label is problematic for Sceve's Delie, and that Dante is a relevant predecessor and source.

The African American Sonnet: A Literary History
Some of the best known African American poems are sonnets: Claude McKay's If We Must Die, Countee Cullen's Yet Do I Marvel, Gwendolyn Brooks's First fight. Then fiddle. Yet few readers realize that these poems are part of a rich tradition that formed after the Civil War and comprises more than a thousand sonnets by African American poets. Paul Laurence Dunbar, Jean Toomer, Langston Hughes, Margaret Walker, and Rita Dove all wrote sonnets.Based on extensive archival research, The African American Sonnet: A Literary History traces this forgotten tradition from the nineteenth century to the present. Timo Muller uses sonnets to open up fresh perspectives on African American literary history. He examines the struggle over the legacy of the Civil War, the trajectories of Harlem Renaissance protest, the tensions between folk art and transnational perspectives in the thirties, the vernacular modernism of the postwar period, the cultural nationalism of the Black Arts movement, and disruptive strategies of recent experimental poetry. In this book, Muller examines the inventive strategies African American poets devised to occupy and reshape a form overwhelmingly associated with Europe. In the tightly circumscribed space of sonnets, these poets mounted evocative challenges to the discursive and material boundaries they confronted.

Love Minus Love
Wayne Holloway-Smith's second collection Love Minus Love is an internal universe, fragmented and glued back together with uncanny logic. A strange layering of time, in which multiple things happen at once, in a looping track of intrusive thoughts - shot through with dead cows, pop songs, dead dads, the white noise of televisions - rotten teeth are raining everywhere. Somewhere at the core of all this, the seemingly fixed boundaries of masculinity, family, trauma and mental health are blurred towards a new type of vinegary identity, in a pitch of emotional intensity that punches you right in the gut. Wayne Holloway-Smith's debut collection Alarum was shortlisted for the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry Prize and the Roehampton Poetry Prize as well as being a Poetry Book Society Wild Card Choice. His poem 'the posh mums are dancing in the square' - included in Love Minus Love - won first prize in the Poetry Society's 2018 National Poetry Competition.

So Forth: Poems
With irony, in mourning tinged with eros, So Forth blends the personal and the political to meditate on damage, aging, and injustice. The poems surge back in memory, pondering guilt and forgiveness. Consciousness flows from singular to plural; identity in these poems does a round dance with other personae, with formidable women artists of the past, with pre-Socratic philosophers, with lovers, children, and strangers-the strangest of whom is the face in the mirror. In response to griefs both historical and contemporary, So Forth contemplates the quest for the holy and the traditions of the sacred. From For Chiara . . . Do we stop seeing when we walk away? The brook prattles on. Home's far off. Dusk settles, slowly, among leaves. That's not mercy, scattering from its hands.

Tongues of Fire
A remarkable first collection by an important new poet In this collection, Sean Hewitt gives us poems of a rare musicality and grace. By turns searing and meditative, these are lyrics concerned with the matter of the world, its physicality, but also attuned to the proximity of each moment, each thing, to the spiritual. Here, there is sex, grief, and loss, but also a committed dedication to life, hope and renewal. Drawing on the religious, the sacred and the profane, this is a collection in which men meet in the woods, where matter is corrupted and remade. There are prayers, hymns, vespers, incantations, and longer poems which attempt to propel themselves towards the transcendent. In this book, there is always the sense of fragility allied with strength, a violence harnessed and unleashed. The collection ends with a series of elegies for the poet's father: in the face of despair, we are met with a fierce brightness, and a reclamation of the spiritual. 'This is when / we make God, and speak in his voice.' Paying close attention to altered states and the consolations and strangeness of the natural world, this is the first book from a major poet.
