Edgar Allan Poe and the Juke-box: Uncollected Poems, Drafts, and Fragments

by Elizabeth Bishop

From the mid-1930s to 1978 Elizabeth Bishop published some eighty poems and thirty translations. Yet her notebooks reveal that she embarked upon many more compositions, some existing in only fragmentary form and some embodied in extensive drafts. Edgar Allen Poe & The Juke-Box presents, alongside facsimiles of many notebook pages from which they are drawn, poems Bishop began soon after college, reflecting her passion for Elizabethan verse and surrealist technique; love poems and dream fragments from the 1940s; poems about her Canadian childhood; and many other works that heretofore have been quoted almost exclusively in biographical and critical studies. This revelatory and moving selection brings us into the poet's laboratory, showing us the initial provocative images that moved her to begin a poem, illustrating terrain unexplored in the work published during her lifetime. Editor Alice Quinn has also mined the Bishop archives for rich tangential material that illuminates the poet's sources and intentions.

The Edge Becomes the Center: An Oral History of Gentrification in the 21st Century

by Dw Gibson

The groundbreaking oral history that tells the stories of New Yorkers effecting and affected by gentrification If you live in a city--and every year, more and more Americans do--you've seen firsthand how gentrification has transformed our surroundings, altering the way cities look, feel, cost, and even smell. Over the last few years, journalists, policymakers, critics, and historians have all tried to explain just what it is that happens when new money and new residents flow into established neighborhoods, yet we've had very little access to the human side of the gentrification phenomenon. The Edge Becomes the Center captures the stories of the many kinds of people--brokers, buyers, sellers, renters, landlords, artists, contractors, politicians, and everyone in between--who are shaping and being shaped by the new New York City. In this extraordinary oral history, DW Gibson takes gentrification out of the op-ed columns and textbooks and brings it to life, showing us what urban change looks and feels like by exposing us to the voices of the people living through it. Drawing on the plainspoken, casually authoritative tradition of Jane Jacobs and Studs Terkel, The Edge Becomes the Center is an inviting and essential portrait of the way we live now.
