These generous poems tell stories of personal history: childhood joys, childhood lessons, and childhood traumas; divorce and grief, family and escape from family; love in many senses; the process and reward of being a poet; the ongoing quest for improvement and serenity; survival and forgiveness; the passage of time and the process of changing; aging and the only way out. they deal with the dying of the present and the presence of the past. They traffic in the many senses of perception (smells of food, sounds of music, colors of light). They celebrate the parts of the body: hands, the skin, and mostly the heart, which is muscle, which is spirit, which is the poet's synecdoche.

The epic made simple. The miracle in the mundane. One day, while browsing an antique store in Helena, Montana, photographer Tyler Knott Gregson stumbled upon a vintage Remington typewriter for sale. Standing up and using a page from a broken book he was buying for $2, he typed a poem without thinking, without planning, and without the ability to revise anything. He fell in love. Three years and almost one thousand poems later, Tyler is now known as the creator of the Typewriter Series: a striking collection of poems typed onto found scraps of paper or created via blackout method. Chasers of the Light features some of his most insightful and beautifully worded pieces of work—poems that illuminate grand gestures and small glimpses, poems that celebrate the beauty of a life spent chasing the light.

A courageous and enthralling collection of poems by Fear of Flying author Erica Jong celebrating life, art, sex, and womanhood seven lives,then webecome light . . . Erica Jong’s novels are fearless and passionate. So, too, is her poetry. Though renowned—and sometimes vilified—for her unabashedly sensual fiction, the author considers herself a poet first and foremost. “It was my poetry,” Jong writes, “that kept me sane, that kept me whole, that kept me alive.” Becoming Light contains poems personally selected by Jong from her complete oeuvre of acclaimed published works—poems of love, sex, witches, gods, and demons; word-songs brimming with wit, heart, bitterness, sorrow, and truth. From the earliest poetic musings of a brilliant young artist first trying out her wings to later works born of experience and maturity, unpublished before appearing in this collection, Jong’s pure artistry shines like a beacon as she writes, fearlessly and passionately, about being a woman, about being alive. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erica Jong including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.
