Description:

329 pages. Softcover. New book. LITERATURE. Published in June 2012. Emilie Glen (1906-1995) was a staggeringly prolific New York City-based poet, wh0se published work spans five decades with thousands of little magazine and newspaper credits worldwide. The long-awaited "big book" of prolific poet Emilie Glen's work has exploded into a four-volume series, thanks to the recovery of a large bundle of Glen's papers. Glen, also famed as the hostess of Manhattan's longest-running poetry salon, enjoyed almost a half-century of continuous writing and publication. First recognized by H.L. Mencken and published in his American Mercury, she started as a fiction writer and then gravitated to narrative poetry, writing and publishing thousands of poems in magazines around the world. In this first volume, we have gathered the texts of all the chapbooks Glen published from her coffeehouse days in Greenwich Village through her last years: 77 Barrow Street, Mad Hatter, Coffee House Poems, Paint and Turpentine, Dark of Earth, Late to the Kitchen, Up to Us Chickens, Twat Shot, Glenda's Ark, Roast Swan, Hope of Amethyst, Rails Away, and Glenda and Her Guitar, Emilie and Her Piano. This includes the full text of all her Poet's Press chapbooks and books as well as early self-published leaflets and productions from several other presses. The poems gathered here are a narrative saga of New York high and low, as well as a poignant saga of family sorrows. The best of them are intimate character portraits, short stories compressed into a dramatic, reader-friendly style, poetry the untrained reader need not fear. This important series belongs in every collection of 20th century American poetry. With cover art by American wood engraver John DePol. (Key Words: Literature, Poetry, Emilie Gle).

About this title:

Synopsis: EMILIE GLEN (1906-1995) was a staggeringly prolific New York City-based poet, whose published work spans five decades with thousands of little magazine and newspaper credits worldwide. Glen’s long-time friend and publisher Brett Rutherford has assembled the complete text of all the poet’s chapbooks, including hand-bound mimeograph productions from her Greenwich Village coffeehouse days. From the 1960s through the early 1990s, Glen was also famed for hosting the longest-running poetry salon in Manhattan, so some of the eccentrics from the New York poetry scene also make an appearance. The poems gathered here are a narrative saga of New York high and low, as well as a poignant saga of family sorrows. The best of them are intimate character portraits, short stories compressed into a dramatic, reader-friendly style, poetry the untrained reader need not fear. A keen observer of nature as well as humanity, Glen delights with her informed short poems on cats, birds, and the occasional mermaid; she is just as much a naturalist in describing life among the tormented actors and actresses in an off-off-Broadway nude theater company. A strong musical thread runs through this collection as well: Glen was a child prodigy pianist and came to New York City to study at Juilliard before the poetry Muse asserted her primacy, so Glen’s New York is an island of pianos, guitars, harps and orchestras. This 330-page collection includes all the poems from 77 Barrow Street, Mad Hatter, Coffee House Poems, Paint and Turpentine, Dark of Earth, Late to the Kitchen, Up to Us Chickens, Twat Shot, Glenda’s Ark, Roast Swan, Hope of Amethyst, Rails Away, and Glenda And Her Guitar, Emilie and Her Piano. The revealing biographical sketch contains many surprising details about the poet’s life and early career. This second edition presents the original 2009 text in a more compact format and at a more affordable price.
