Beat Poets by Carmela Ciuraru
Book DescriptionThis rousing anthology features the work of more than twenty-five writers from the great twentieth-century countercultural literary movement. Writing with an audacious swagger and an iconoclastic zeal, and declaiming their verse with dramatic flourish in smoke-filled cafes, the Beats gave birth to a literature of previously unimaginable expressive range. The defining work of Allen Ginsberg and Jack Kerouac provides the foundation for this collection, which also features the improvisational verse of such Beat legends as Gregory Corso, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Gary Snyder, and Michael McClure and the work of such women writers as Diane DiPrima and Denise Levertov. LeRoi Jones's plaintive "Preface to a Twenty Volume Suicide Note" and Bob Kaufman's stirring "Abomunist Manifesto" appear here alongside statements on poetics and the alternately incendiary and earnest correspondence of Beat Generation writers. Visceral and powerful, infused with an unmediated spiritual and social awareness, this is a rich and varied tribute and, in the populist spirit of the Beats, a vital addition to the libraries of readers everywhere.

Poems About Horses, Hardback (April 2009)
Features many kinds of equine characters from war horses to cowboys' trusty steeds, from broken-down nags to playful colts, from wild horses to dream horses. This book also features the famous Trojan horse in Virgil's "Aeneid", only to see it from a quite different perspective in Matthea Harvey's whimsical "Inside the Good Idea".
Fatherhood, Hardback (June 2007)
A celebration of fathers and fatherhood, this anthology features the varied voices of sons and daughters, and of fathers and grandfathers themselves. It presents a collection of poets and poems ranging across cultures and centuries; and deals with various facets of the father-child relationship from birth to death and beyond.
Solitude, Hardback (October 2005)View all books by Carmela Ciuraru
Poets can be said to be the custodians of the interior life. This is a collection of poems, which capture the experience of solitude. It features reveries, expressions of loneliness and despair, reflections on mind and soul, and meditations, recorded in the stillness of the night.
