The Glass Constellation: New and Collected Poems by Arthur Sze
Spanning five decades and ten poetry collections, The Glass Constellation collects some of Arthur Sze’s best work. From his early work to his most recent, see how this American poet’s work has changed over the years, evolving and changing as the world has changed around him. What’s more, this collection includes twenty-six brand new poems from Sze.
Known for fusing together elements of Chinese, Japanese, Native American, and Western traditions, Sze has a unique and distinct feeling to his poetry. His early work was lyrical and heavily influenced by classical Chinese poetry, while his later work became more sharply focused and structurally complex. His poetry shares concern for the planet, endangered species, and the future of the human race. It’s through his startling juxtapositions that readers can see the beauty and truth in the world around them.
Wild Imperfections: A Womanist Anthology of Poems by Natalie Molebatsi
This anthology collects poems from more than 40 Black women, womyn, and womxn. It seeks to create a space for the wild, the unruly, the loose and dirty, the witches and bitches who no longer seek permission for their emotions. Instead, they will heal, be joyful, and rage on. This anthology is for all the women who are building a better future and refuse to let the past be cleaned up and swept away.
This collection opens with poems dedicated and reflecting on notable women of the past, such as Sarah Baartman and Rosa Parks, who are reflections of their time and role models for Black girls. Others throughout the collection discuss issues such as rape, war, exile, and forced migration. Many others paint images of joy and desire. These poems question and disrupt the patriarchy and give those born Black and poor in a post-slavery world a voice.
