Item Description: Createspace, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Traci Siler, Keri Colestock (illustrator). 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.In the last couple of years, I ve got to know Traci Siler, Edwin Patterson and others bitten by mosquitoes carrying the West Nile Virus (WNV). Their stories are interesting and significant. WNV is a mimic -- it acts like other illnesses, such as MS and Lupus, making it difficult to treat. Health care professionals often treat symptoms rather than WNV, putting patients at risk and delaying treatment of WNV. Though there really is no treatment of WNV; doctors have to use drugs or physical therapy to tackle symptoms -- drugs, physical therapy, diet and exercise, et al. A delay in treatment might mean, for example, the drugs -- morphine -- needed to treat aches need to be stronger. By the way, there is no vaccine; there is for horses with WNV, but not humans. The book centers around WNV and Traci Siler. who is very prolific and outspoken about the virus. She was one of those misdiagnosed. However, other infections and people are included. There are poems about Ebola, flu, smallpox and others. One of the infections is an adverse reaction to a common generic drug. The book is essentially three parts: WNV poems, other infections, tanka and haiga, and poetic bios. At the end of the book is a brief explanation of the pandemics. Part of the inspiration for doing a book is Traci s Beneath a Morphine Moon, edited by Ed Bremson. A selection from the book, modified to haiga is included along with some additional work by Traci. In addition, poets writing at Tanka Poets on Site are represented with a selection based upon the painting, Morphine Moon. Bookseller Inventory # APC9781507872222

Item Description: MBT,, Guilford, Connecticut, 2005. Original Wraps. Book Condition: As New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 60 p. 50 ill. from photographs (3 color) of fences, gates and gateposts, mostly from the Colonial and Federalist period (with some later examples) in the town of Guilford, Connecticut, a distinctive Connecticut village with one of the largest numbers of seventeenth and eighteenth century houses in New England, including the oldest surviving stone house. The photographs, reminiscent of the work of Wright Morris, are handsomely composed and printed. Accompanying the photographs is a selection of experimental poems by the photographer in a variety of styles (haiku, tanka, quatrain, acrostic, cinquain, diamante, epitaph, naani, shaped poem, Lanturne, Tyburn, etc.) with a discussion of the basic characteristics of each type and an introductory statement on photography, poetry and the architectural character of Guilford. The poems and photographs interact, with each poem representing a literary equivalent of its visual photographic twin. Includes biographical note on the photographer-poet. A stunning first book and a remarkable achievement for an author just turned seventeen at the time of publication. Bookseller Inventory # 014201

Item Description: Columbia University Press, United States, 2016. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 178 x 140 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. For Nirvana features exceptional examples of the poet Cho Oh-Hyun s award-winning work. Cho Oh-Hyun was born in Miryang, South Gyeongsang Province, Korea, and has lived in retreat in the mountains since becoming a novice monk at the age of seven. Writing under the Buddhist name Musan, he has composed hundreds of poems in seclusion, many in the sijo style, a relatively fixed syllabic poetic form similar to Japanese haiku and tanka. For Nirvana contains 108 Zen sijo poems (108 representing the number of klesas, or defilements, that one must overcome to attain enlightenment). These transfixing works play with traditional religious and metaphysical themes and include a number of story sijo, a longer, more personal style that is one of Cho Oh-Hyun s major innovations. Kwon Youngmin, a leading scholar of sijo, provides a contextualizing introduction, and in his afterword, Heinz Insu Fenkl reflects on the unique challenges of translating the collection.

Item Description: Taylor Francis Inc, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 221 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Throughout history, Japanese women have excelled in poetry - from the folk songs of the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Matters) compiled in 712 and the court poetry of the 9th to the 14th centuries, on through the age of haikai and kanshi to the 19th century, into the contemporary period when books of women s poems have created a sensation.This anthology presents examples of the work of more than 100 Japanese women poets, arranged chronologically, and of all the major verse forms: choka, tanka, haikai (haiku), kanshi (verse written in Chinese), and free verse. The poems describe not just seasonal changes and the vagaries of love - which form the thematic core of traditional Japanese poetry - but also the devastations of war, childbirth, conflicts between child-rearing and work, experiences as refugees, experiences as non-Japanese residents in Japan, and more.Sections of poetry open with headnotes, and the editor has provided explanations of terms and references for those unfamiliar with the Japanese language. Other useful tools include a glossary of poetic terms, a chronology, and a bibliography that points the reader toward other works by and about these poets. There is no comparable collection available in English.Students and anyone who appreciates poetry and Japanese culture will treasure this magnificent anthology.

Item Description: M.E.Sharpe. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 547 pages. Dimensions: 9.1in. x 6.2in. x 1.5in.Throughout history, Japanese women have excelled in poetry - from the folk songs of the Kojiki (Record of Ancient Matters) compiled in 712 and the court poetry of the 9th to the 14th centuries, on through the age of haikai and kanshi to the 19th century, into the contemporary period when books of womens poems have created a sensation. This anthology presents examples of the work of more than 100 Japanese women poets, arranged chronologically, and of all the major verse forms: choka, tanka, haikai (haiku), kanshi (verse written in Chinese), and free verse. The poems describe not just seasonal changes and the vagaries of love - which form the thematic core of traditional Japanese poetry - but also the devastations of war, childbirth, conflicts between child-rearing and work, experiences as refugees, experiences as non-Japanese residents in Japan, and more. Sections of poetry open with headnotes, and the editor has provided explanations of terms and references for those unfamiliar with the Japanese language. Other useful tools include a glossary of poetic terms, a chronology, and a bibliography that points the reader toward other works by and about these poets. There is no comparable collection available in English. Students and anyone who appreciates poetry and Japanese culture will treasure this magnificent anthology. Editor and translator Hiroaki Sato is a past winner of the PEN America translator prize and the Japan-United States Friendship Commissions 1999 literary translation award.
