Image For 14ers Poster by CSU Alum Blair Hamill

14ers Poster by CSU Alum Blair Hamill

Item Description

This 14ers Poster by CSU Alum Blair Hamill calls attention to our public lands, their conservation, and the spiritual connection we have with those places. That connection with the out-of-doors is what has compelled our artist, Blair Hamill, to craft our posters. Blair has spent decades criss-crossing the Rocky Mountain West. When researching and designing new posters, he takes to the field and captures vistas that evoke a feeling of awe. When a particular place is located, he records information through observations, painted studies, sketches, photographs, and notes. He then takes those observations back to the studio for completion.

His love for the land began by building trails in the Rockies in his teens, backpacking in the wilderness, exploring national parks, snowshoeing and skiing. The trails he now leads people on are through his posters and paintings. His art continues to spark a sense of place, story, and memory for travelers on their own personal journeys through the Rocky Mountain West.

Our posters are designed with a love for the Rocky Mountain landscape. Caring for our public lands in the Rocky Mountain West requires the work of dedicated individuals and non-profit organizations. Because of this, each year we give back a portion of our proceeds to the Colorado 14ers Initiative (CFI), the non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of our Rocky Mountain Region’s highest peaks.

Image For Brighter Word than Bright by Dan Beachy-Quick

Brighter Word than Bright by Dan Beachy-Quick

Item Description
The Romantic poet John Keats, considered by many as one of the greatest poets in the English language, has long been the subject of attention from scholars who seek to understand him and poets who seek to emulate him. Bridging these impulses, "A Brighter Word Than Bright" is neither historical biography nor scholarly study, but instead a biography of Keats s poetic imagination. Here the noted poet Dan Beachy-Quick enters into Keats s writing both his letters and his poems not to critique or judge, not to claim or argue, but to embrace the passion and quickness of his poetry and engage the aesthetic difficulties with which Keats grappled.Combining a set of biographical portraits that place symbolic pressure on key moments in Keats s life with a chronological examination of the development of Keats-as-poet through his poems and letters, Beachy-Quick explores the growth of the young man s poetic imagination during the years of his writing life, from 1816 to 1820. "A Brighter Word Than Bright" aims to enter the poems and the mind that wrote them, to explore and mine Keats s poetic concerns and ambitions. It is a mimetic tribute to the poet s life and work, a brilliant enactment that is also a thoughtful consideration." --Books in Print

Image For Calenday by Laura Haldeman

Calenday by Laura Haldeman

Item Description
Part of the Creative Writers Reading Series: Presentation and Signing free and open to the public. 7:30 p.m. in the Gregory Allicar Museum of Art Address: 1400 Remington. Date: 01/25/18*****Poetry. Lauren Haldeman's inventive debut, CALENDAY, plays and challenges with equal force: "Up from my heart / I thought of my head, / and my heart came true." These poems travel the sleep- deprived, hallucinogenic landscape of parenting a newborn from the otherworldly process of giving birth to the strangeness of extra-physical connection, they build worlds in miniature and madcap and address the tiers of grief that accompany tragic and bewildering loss. Within iridescently imagined scenes, Haldeman plants her humans: "Near the seventh cavern / where he wrestled once with bubbly air / your brother opened a tin-can, found glow-sticks inside. He broke // the liquid into essence..." These vibrant, dark, and salvaged fragments complicate the magic of the human animal outside of measurable time. "Part elegy, part exaltation, motherhood is a kind of disoriented mourning in this grieving, chilling collection, where to be born is to slip from illimitable immortality into time. And even as Haldeman cherishes the essence of life, 'Your body a banquet of sunshine in this shovel, ' I wonder if this measured poet slinging her spade is a master gardener or a gravedigger. CALENDAY is the logbook of both. A book of the dead, and a book of life, this is a mysterious desk calendar countdown that accounts for eternity by charting now, now, now, and now. 'Everything was glorious and dangerous.'" Robyn Schiff "What is a day when heart and eye shake loose and baffle the hierarchy of time and mind? A new form of measure in which life learns to run fugitive from the hours that count it down. Catalyst to such wilding work: a child, a poem. Both so strangely initiate us who have them, who hold them, who write them and raise them, back into the deep life of form that is no mere limit on possibility, but a reintroduction to the very fact of mortality whose fateful end can only be forgiven for also being the beginning of wonder. Day by day, Lauren Haldeman's CALENDAY takes care to urge us back into our earliest eye, subject to all the play they record, opening again that capacity to awe that reworks all relation by remembering how miraculously confounding our primary one is: mother to child. Listen: 'People here call this // the "neon whisper."' True enough. My eye sees now in iridescent hue. Flowers glow brighter than suns, the white page glows purple, and each created thing keeps making a brighter version of itself: person to child, poetry to poem, windmill to wind: 'Look at it; / look at it breathing.' Dear reader, yes: look at it. This book. It's breathing." Dan Beachy- Quick --Books in Print

Complete Tales and Poems by Edgar Allan Poe

Item Description

One of the most original American writers, Edgar Allan Poe shaped the development of both the detectvie story and the science-fiction story. Some of his poems--"The Raven," "The Bells," "Annabel Lee"--remain among the most popular in American literature. Poe's tales of the macabre still thrill readers of all ages. Here are familiar favorites like "The Purloined Letter," "The Fall of the House of Usher," and "The Murders in the Rue Morgue," together with less-known masterpieces like "The Imp of the Perverse," "The Narrative of A. Gordon Pym," and "Ligeia," which is now recognized as one of the first science-fiction stories, a total of seventy-three tales in all, plus fifty-three poems and a generous sampling of Poe's essays, criticism and journalistic writings.

About the Author

Edgar Allan Poe was born in Boston, Massachusetts on January 19, 1809. In 1827, he enlisted in the United States Army and his first collection of poems, Tamerlane and Other Poems, was published. In 1835, he became the editor of the Southern Literary Messenger. Over the next ten years, Poe would edit a number of literary journals including the Burton's Gentleman's Magazine and Graham's Magazine in Philadelphia and the Broadway Journal in New York City. It was during these years that he established himself as a poet, a short story writer, and an editor. His works include The Fall of the House of Usher, The Tell-Tale Heart, The Murders in the Rue Morgue, The Mystery of Marie Roget, A Descent into the Maelstrom, The Masque of the Red Death, and The Raven. He struggled with depression and alcoholism his entire life and died on October 7, 1849 at the age of 40.

Embroidering within Boundaries by Mary Littrell

Item Description
Fifteen years ago, Rangina Hamidi decided to dedicate her life to helping rebuild her native Kandahar, Afghanistan. The Taliban had been driven out by American forces following 9/11, but Kandahar was a shambles. Tens of thousands of women, widowed by years of conflict, struggled to support themselves and their families. Rangina started an entrepreneurial enterprise, using the exquisite traditional embroidery of Kandahar, to help women work within the cultural boundaries of Pashtunwali to earn their living and to find a degree of self-determination. Thus Kandahar Treasure was born. This book traces the converging paths of traditional khamak embroidery and the 300 brave women who have found in it a way to build their lives. The late, award-winning photojournalist Paula Lerner was dedicated to telling the stories of women in Afghanistan. Her remarkable images throughout the book show Afghan women's profound struggle, strength, and beauty. --Books in Print

Here, Bullet by Brian Turner

Item Description

The Creative Writing Reading Series presents Brian Turner for a reading on October 10, 2019.  

*7:30 p.m.

*Lory Student Center, Cherokee Park Room

Adding his voice to the current debate about the US occupation of Iraq, in poems written in the tradition of such poets as Wilfred Owen, Yusef Komunyakaa (Dien Cai Dau), Bruce Weigl (Song of Napalm) and Alice James' own Doug Anderson (The Moon Reflected Fire), Iraqi war veteran Brian Turner writes power-fully affecting poetry of witness, exceptional for its beauty, honesty, and skill. Based on Turner's yearlong tour in Iraq as an infantry team leader, the poems offer gracefully rendered, unflinching description but, remarkably, leave the reader to draw conclusions or moral lessons. Here, Bulletis a must-read for anyone who cares about the war, regardless of political affiliation.

Incendiary Art by Patricia Smith

Item Description

Winner, NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work in the Poetry category Winner, 2018 Kingsley Tufts Poetry Award Winner, 2018 BCALA Best Poetry Award Winner, 2017 Los Angeles Times Book Prize Winner, Abel Meeropol Award for Social Justice Finalist, Neustadt International Prize for Literature Finalist, 2018 Pulitzer Prize for Poetry One of the most magnetic and esteemed poets in today's literary landscape, Patricia Smith fearlessly confronts the tyranny against the black male body and the tenacious grief of mothers in her compelling new collection, Incendiary Art. She writes an exhaustive lament for mothers of the "dark magicians," and revisits the devastating murder of Emmett Till. These dynamic sequences serve as a backdrop for present-day racial calamities and calls for resistance. Smith embraces elaborate and eloquent language-- "her gorgeous fallen son a horrid hidden / rot. Her tiny hand starts crushing roses--one by one / by one she wrecks the casket's spray. It's how she / mourns--a mother, still, despite the roar of thorns"-- as she sharpens her unerring focus on incidents of national mayhem and mourning. Smith envisions, reenvisions, and ultimately reinvents the role of witness with an incendiary fusion of forms, including prose poems, ghazals, sestinas, and sonnets. With poems impossible to turn away from, one of America's most electrifying writers reveals what is frightening, and what is revelatory, about history.

PATRICIA SMITH is a National Book Award finalist (2008) and the author of six critically acknowledged volumes of poetry. Her awards and honors include the 2014 Rebekah Johnson Bobbitt National Prize from the Library of Congress, the 2013 Lenore Marshall Poetry Prize from the Academy of American Poets, and a 2013 Phillis Wheatley Book Award. A formidable performer, Smith has read her work at venues all over the United States and around the world. She is a Cave Canem faculty member, an associate professor of English at CUNY/College of Staten Island, and a faculty member in the Sierra Nevada College M.F.A. program.--Books in Print

Inquisition by Kazim Ali

Item Description

During the 1982 air strikes on Beirut, Faiz Ahmed Faiz asked his friend Mahmoud Darwish "Why aren't the poets writing this war on the walls of the city?" Darwish responded, "Can't you see the walls falling down?" Queer, Muslim, American, Kazim Ali has always navigated complex intersections and interstices on order to make a life. In this scintillating mixture of lyrics, narrative, fragments, prose poem, and spoken word, he answers longstanding questions about the role of the poet or artist in times of political or social upheaval, although he answers under duress. An inquisition is dangerous, after all, especially to Muslims whose poetry and art and spiritual life has always depended not on the Western ideal of a known God or definitive text but on the concepts of abstraction, geometry, vertigo. "Someone always asks 'where are you from,'" Ali writes, "and I want to say 'a body is a body of matter flung/from the far corners of the universe and I am a patriot/of breath of sin of the endless clamor/out the window.'" Ali engages history, politics, and the dangerous regions of the uncharted heart in this visceral new collection
