LOUISE GLÜCK VE BRIGIT PEGEEN KELLY AMERİKAN ŞAİRLERİ AKADEMİSİ MAJOR POETRY ÖDÜLÜNÜ KAZANDI


Louise Glück 2008 Amerikan Şairleri Akedemisi tarafından Wallace Stevens Ödülüne layık görüldü. Yüz bin dolarlık ödül şiir sanatındaki kanıtlanmış başarının bir simgesi. Brigit Peegen Kelly ise her yıl şiirde seçkin ve üstün başarı gösteren şairlere verilen 2008 Academy Fellowship ödülünü kazanarak yirmi beşbin dolarlık ödüle layık görüldü. Wallace Stevens ve Acedemy Fellowship ödülleri Akademi bünyesinde bulunan 14 ünlü şair tarafından belirleniyor.
Louise Glück şiiri hakkında Akademi şansölyelerinden Robert Pinsky şunları söyledi:
“Louise’in kullandığı dil sizinle gelişi güzel konuşan çok sade bir dile benziyor, ama bu dilin güçlü bir seçkinliği var. Şiirinde daima size sarsan şeyler var. Her dönüşte, her cümlede, her dizede bazı şeyler birtakım yerlere küçük farklılıklarla bağlanıyor ya da düşündüğünüzden çok farklı bir şekilde de bağlanabiliyor.”
Louise Glück Kimdir:
1943’te New York City’de doğan şair Long Island’da yetişti. Averno (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2006), The Seven Ages (Ecco, 2001), Vita Nova (1999), Meadowlands (1996), The Wild Iris (1992), Ararat (1990), ve The Triumph of Achilles (1985) gibi pekçok şiir kitabının yazarı. Ayrıca , Proofs and Theories: Essays on Poetry (1994) adında bir denemeler seçkisi de mevcut.
Pulitzer Şiir Ödülü, the National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry, the Bollingen Prize in Poetry, ve the Lannan Literary Award for Poetry gibi seçkin ödüllere sahip. 2003’te Kongre Kütüphanesi tarafından Poet Laureate (büyük şair) seçildi. Son yıllarda Yale Üniversitesi bünyesinde yazıyor ve Cambridge, Massachusetts’te yaşıyor.
Louise Glück şiir yazmak üzerine şunları söylüyor:
“Dünya biz olmadan bir bütün oluyor. Dayanılmaz gerçek bu! Şair isyanla cevap vererek, bir şeyi zıttıyla ispat etmeyi istiyor… Şair gerçeğin kronik çekişmesi içinde yaşamını sürdürüyor ve böylece bir şaşkınlık beliriyor: dayanılmaz olanın parçalı çelişkisi içinde yepyeni bir element gibi başka bir gerçekliğin yaratılması.”

Brigit Pegeen Kelly Kimdir?
1951’de California, Palo Alto’da doğdu. Pulitzer Şiir Ödülü finalisti ve the National Book Circle Critics Şiir Ödülünü kazanan The Orchard (BOA Editions, 2004), Amerikan Şairleri Akademisi Lamont Şiir Seçkisi ödüllü Song (1995), ve James Merril tarafındasn Yale’in en Genç Şairleri Serisine seçilen To The Place of Trumpets (Yale University Press, 1988) adlı şiir kitapları bulunuyor.
Kelly’nin şiiri üzerine Akademi şansölyelerinden Carl Phillips şunları söyledi:
“Üç kitabının rotasında Brigit Kelly, kendi terminolojisi ekseninde ele alınması gereken bir vizyon ve şiiri biçimlendirdi. Her yerinde hatasız bir özgünlük var demek mümkün. Cümleleri bir goblen üretmek için ileri ve geriye giderek titremeden mekik dokuyor ve sanki okuyucusunu büyüleyen bir meditasyonun içine sokuyor! Çoğu zaman sizi rahatsız eden bir rahatlama alemi “güzelin tebliğinin ötesinde” yatıyor ve bu orada zulüm ve tatlılık kolayca belki zorunluluka bir başkası için karmaşık olabiliyor, ama topografyası bir zamanlar mistikleşmiş, ayırt edilebilir ve tamamen Kelly’nin olan bir alem bu.”
Son Ödülleri
Kelly’nin son ödülleri arasında, Poetry Society of America tarafından verilen "Discovery"/The Nation Award, the Cecil Hemley Ödülü, bir Pushcart Ödülü, Poetry Northwest’ten Theodore Roethke Ödülü ve Whiting Writers Ödülü bulunuyor. Uzun yıllar boyunca Illionis Üniversitesinde öğretim görevlisi olan Kelly, Irvine’de California Üniversitesi’nde, Purdue Üniversitesi ve Warren Wilson Koleji’nde öğretim görevlisi olarak görev yaptı. 2002’de Illionis Üniversitesi şaire eğitimde mükemmelik üzerine iki ödül verdi.
Louise Glück ve Brigit Pegeen Kelly 6-8 Kasım tarihleri arasında New York City’de Şairler Forumuna katılacaklar ve Şair Ödülleri Seromonisinde şiirlerini okuyacaklar. Louise Glück ayrıca Amerikan Şairleri Akademisi tarafından organize edilen çağdaş şiir panelindeki tartışmalara katılacak.

LOUISE GLÜCK AND BRIGIT PEGEEN KELLY RECEIVE MAJOR POETRY AWARDS
FROM THE ACADEMY OF AMERICAN POETS
New York, September 2—Louise Glück has been selected as the recipient of the 2008 Wallace Stevens Award from the Academy of American Poets. The $100,000 prize recognizes outstanding and proven mastery in the art of poetry. Brigit Pegeen Kelly has been selected as the recipient of the 2008 Academy Fellowship, which is awarded once a year to a poet for distinguished poetic achievement and provides a stipend of $25,000. The Academy’s Board of Chancellors, a body of fourteen eminent poets, selects the Wallace Stevens Award and Academy Fellowship recipients.
Of Louise Glück’s work, Academy Chancellor Robert Pinsky said:
Louise sometimes uses language so plain it can almost seem like someone is speaking to you spontaneously—but it’s always intensely distinguished…There’s always a surprise in Louise’s writing; in every turn, every sentence, every line, something goes somewhere a little different, or very different, from where you thought it would.
Louise Glück was born in New York City in 1943 and grew up on Long Island. She is the author of numerous books of poetry, including Averno (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2006), The Seven Ages (Ecco, 2001), Vita Nova (1999), Meadowlands (1996), The Wild Iris (1992), Ararat (1990), and The Triumph of Achilles (1985). She has also published a collection of essays, Proofs and Theories: Essays on Poetry (1994).
Her many honors include the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry, the National Book Critics Circle Award for Poetry, the Bollingen Prize in Poetry, and the Lannan Literary Award for Poetry. In 2003, she was appointed Poet Laureate of the United States by the Library of Congress. She currently is a writer-in-residence at Yale University, and she lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
About writing poetry, Louise Glück wrote:
The world is complete without us. Intolerable fact. To which the poet responds by rebelling, wanting to prove otherwise... The poet lives in chronic dispute with fact, and an astonishment occurs: another fact is created, like a new element, in partial contradiction of the intolerable.
Brigit Pegeen Kelly was born in Palo Alto, California, in 1951. She is the author of The Orchard (BOA Editions, 2004), a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in Poetry and the National Book Circle Critics Award in Poetry; Song (1995), which was the 1994 Lamont Poetry Selection of the Academy of American Poets; and To The Place of Trumpets (Yale University Press, 1988), which was selected by James Merrill for the Yale Series of Younger Poets.
About Kelly’s work, Academy Chancellor Carl Phillips said:
In the course of her three books, Brigit Kelly has shaped a poetry and vision that demand to be taken on their own terms—which is to say, there's an originality that is everywhere unmistakable. Her sentences shuttle steadily back and forth to produce a tapestry-like meditation that throws into arresting—often disturbing—relief a world that lies “beyond the report of beauty,” where cruelty and sweetness are easily, perhaps necessarily, confusable for one another, a world whose topography is at once mythic, recognizable, and utterly Kelly’s own.
Kelly’s additional honors include a "Discovery"/The Nation Award, the Cecil Hemley Award from the Poetry Society of America, a Pushcart Prize, the Theodore Roethke Prize from Poetry Northwest, and a Whiting Writers Award. Kelly, who has taught for many years primarily at the University of Illinois, has also taught at the University of California at Irvine, Purdue University, and Warren Wilson College. In 2002 the University of Illinois presented her with two awards for excellence in teaching.
Louise Glück and Brigit Pegeen Kelly will be participating in the Poets Forum (November 6-8 in New York City) where they will read from their work at the Poets Awards Ceremony. Louise Glück will also be part of panel discussions on contemporary poetry presented by the Academy of American Poets.
