2017 book releases I’m most looking forward to

anonymous asked:

poetry book recs, kind sir?

ooooooh YES!! 

ok so I’m going to leave out stuff that’s Too Obvious, which means a lot of this is niche (to me) or contemporary, and… I recently had a canary on twitter about how much ~*~modern~*~ poetry GETS MY GOAT. I’m reading a lot of New poets/collections this year purely because I… didn’t really read that much contemporary stuff before, and I thought I should branch out. (so far I’m dubious.) so, yes – obviously Plath, Blake, Hughes, Sappho, Eliot, Keats, Shelley, etc. etc. ad nauseum, The Greats, yadda yadda, here’s some others.

so far this year I’ve read (and ENJOYED - I’m not reccing the ones I wasn’t into/thought were pants, soz): 

  • Letters From Medea by Salma Deera
  • Grief Is the Thing with Feathers by Max Porter
  • Hold Your Own by Kate Tempest (I actually LOVED this) 
  • Mouthful of Forevers by Clementine von Radics
  • War of the Foxes by Richard Siken (of YOU’RE SITTING IN A CAR WITH A BEAUTIFUL BOY, AND HE WON’T TELL YOU THAT HE LOVES YOU, BUT HE LOVES YOU fame) 

I’ve also read and loved:

  • Teaching My Mother How to Give Birth by Warsan Shire
  • The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy by Tim Burton
  • The Curse of the Vampire’s Socks and Other Doggerel by Terry Jones
  • Love Poems by Carol Ann Duffy
  • Let Us Compare Mythologies by Leonard Cohen

my personal 10/10 all-time go-tos are:

  • Crush by Richard Siken (despite appearing on every single tumblr graphic between 2011 and 2013, it still gets me in the heart guts)
  • The World’s Wife by Carol Ann Duffy (which I have loved wholeheartedly since I was 17 years old)
  • pretty much any collection of Great War poetry: Up the Line to Death, Men Who March Away, Lads: Love Poetry of the Trenches (the Great War poets are my favourite. like, of all poetry, ever)

my favourite individual poems, as we’re on the subj, are: 

finally, a heads up: youtube literally anything by Brave New Voices, sit back, prepare to be Shook. ‘Transcript of Civil Rights’ by Shanita Jackson and Dakota Oder still DESTROYS ME five years later.

THERE YA GO. not much, but not nothing! enjoy!! maybe?!?

R: Yes, I’m aware that it’s on. I just had to finish something up real quick.

R: I…realize that it’s been a while, and I’m sorry about that. But I’ve been a little busy.

R: If you direct your attention below my eyeballs, you’ll notice a lack of bags. I’ve been getting back on top of my sleep.

R:

R: Well. Joly made me go talk to a doctor. That isn’t him or Combeferre, thankfully. 

R: Guess who’s an insomniac? It’s me! So I got some pills…that require I cut back on my drinking. Which blows. But, on the bright side of things, Enjolras noticed and gave me a hug.

R: He doesn’t really do physicality with me, so…I’m not gonna lie, it kind of made the whole thing worth it. The whole…trying not to be awful thing.

R: Éponine reminds me to take my meds. I have a good support group…it’s nice, actually.

R: Anyway, there’s big plans for today. The rally is here. Finally.

R: It’s about and all that, so I have to change shirts once I’m done painting, but then we’re gonna head over to the park and try to… I dunno, change the world, I guess. 

R: And after that…I’m going to ask Enj to come onto the blog.

R: I am scared shitless.

R: And I don’t necessarily want to tell him how I feel about him, but…I want to talk to him. I’m ready to talk to him. I need to talk to him.

R: So um…yeah. Let’s do it, I guess.

R: Don’t worry. We’ll do it together. If you guys haven’t lost interest in me yet.
