" We wait for baseball all winter long," Bill Littlefield wrote in Boston Magazine a decade ago, " or rather, we remember it and anticipate it at the same time. We re-create what we have known and we imagine what we are going to do next. Maybe that' s what poets do, too." Poetry and baseball are occasions for well-put passion and expressive pondering, and just as passionate attention transforms the prose of everyday life into poetry, it also transforms this game we write about, play, or watch. Editors Brooke Horvath and Tim Wiles unite their own passion for baseball and poetry in this collection, Line Drives: 100 Contemporary Baseball Poems, providing a forum for ninety-two poets. Line after line, like baseball itself game after game and season after season, these poems manage to make the old and the familiar new and surprising. The poems in these pages invite interrogation, and the reader-- like the true baseball fan-- must be willing to play the game, for these poems are fun, fresh, angry, nostalgic, meditative, and meant to be read aloud. They are keen on taking us deeply into baseball as sport and intent on offering countless metaphors for exploring history, religion, love, family, and self-identity. Each poem delivers images of pure beauty as the poets speak of murder and ghost runners and old ball gloves, of baseball as a tie that binds families-- and indeed the nation-- together, of the game as a stage upon which no-nonsense grit and skill are routinely displayed, and of the delight experienced in being one amid a mindlessly happy crowd. This book is true to the game' s long season and to the lives of those the game engages.

These Little Poems of Death and After Life

“It began, I suppose, with the innocence of a game. That first spondaic line was
never mine— Pink belly. Slap. Slap. Set my flesh aflame— It was their refrain,
their signature tune, their game: Always their words, their percussive rhythm, ...

These startling narratives investigate with stunning insight the impact of death on the lives of ordinary people. In Remembrance an accidental couple copes with the suicide of their brilliant son; in The Visitation, two young brothers confront the mystery of a grandfather who has suddenly left their lives; Rowena, in Doppelganger, faces a ghostly presence who guides her toward the euthanasia of her only child; in Setting It Right an elderly couple wrestles with the specter of revenge after their life savings have been embezzled; in The Rape a man confronts a childhood memory that leads to an act of brutal violence. In this startling collection of poems, Robert Joseph Foley, explores our reactions to life and its inevitable consequences, at turns tragic and horrifying; at turns mordantly humorous, and offers the hope of reconciliation and peace after a fitful journey.

Milo De Angelis, born in 1951, is one of the most important living Italian poets. With this volume, Susan Stewart and Patrizio Ceccagnoli bring to English readers for the first time a facing-page edition of his most recent work: his book-length elegy, Theme of Farewell, and the subsequent poems of That Wandering in the Darkness of Courtyards. These two books form a sequence narrating the illness and premature death, in 2003, of the poet’s wife, the writer Giovanna Sicari, a celebrated poet in her own right; they also trace De Angelis’s turn from grief, through time, back to the world. Immediate, perceptive, and woven from the fabric of everyday life in contemporary Milan, the poems never depart from universal human emotions of despair and awakening. Throughout his long career, De Angelis has renewed lyric poetry with the sheer intensity of his forms and insights, and the volumes offered here have won some of the most important Italian literary awards, including the coveted Premio Viareggio. These inexorable and beautifully crafted translations will be of interest to scholars of contemporary Italian literature, students of contemporary poetry and literary translation, and those who work in comparative literature. Above all, they are bound to speak to any reader in search of a poet writing at the height of his powers of expression.

Ryan Frankovic and his best friend, eight-foot-nine giant Luther Brightwell, live in a small midwestern town in the late fifties, surrounded by basketball enthusiasts. In the otherwise ordinary summer of 1956, Ryan and Luther witness the discordant relationship of Ryan’s neighbors, Sidney and Claire McMillan, but think nothing of it. But several weeks later, Mrs. McMillan goes missing, and her disappearance leads to months of speculation and even suspicion of murder. About to begin their senior year, the boys soon forget about her in order to prepare for the upcoming sports season—while, Luther struggles with his gargantuan height and strength. As the sports season commences, however, the boys start to realize women in other nearby cities have gone missing as well. Despite the distractions of school and college prep, they put together the pieces that soon point to murder—and possibly to the killer. What’s more, they are shocked to realize that these missing women have something to do with their basketball team.

Lust isn't the only driving force behind this book—also factoring in are rage, regret, humiliation, longing, affection, and an appreciation of the folly of existence—but it plays the biggest role. In largely rhyming, rhythmic verse, the author narrates a series of erotic vignettes that, while arousing, are always more than a little literary. And his forays into other subject matter sometimes even get serious. Each poem features an illustrated cover page; much of the artwork is original and is itself worth much more than a passing glance.

This study analyzes contemporary American sports poetry, demonstrating that poems about sports express common attitudes and showing what the respective sports' poems say about American culture of the last fifty years. While placing particular emphasis on the hero in American sports poetry, the study proves that a considerable body of sports poetry exists in American culture and that it is worthy of serious analysis. The study opens with the analysis done so far on sports poetry, articulates methods of approach, and gives a brief history of sports poetry, beginning with victory chants around the tribal campfire. From Thayer's "Casey at the Bat" to Gibb's "Listening to the Ballgame," the body of the work is organized thematically by sport: baseball, football, basketball, women's sports, and minor sports such as golf, racquet sports, and boxing. The study concludes with a chapter on poems about fans and spectators and a summary of the study's arguments. Each section gives detailed readings of many poems.
