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.

The current Chancellors are Frank Bidart, Victor Hernández Cruz, Rita Dove, Lyn Hejinian, Sharon Olds, Ron Padgett, Carl Phillips, Robert Pinsky, Kay Ryan, Gary Snyder, Gerald Stern, Susan Stewart, Ellen Bryant Voigt, and C.K.

Ammons, Frank Bidart, John Ashbery, Richard Wilbur, Mark Strand, Gerald Stern, Michael Palmer, and Charles Simic.

Kay Ryan, Outsider With Sly Style, Named Poet Laureate


-->





Correction Appended
When Kay Ryan was a student at the University of California, Los Angeles, the poetry club rejected her application; she was perhaps too much of a loner, she recalls. Now Ms. Ryan is being inducted into one of the most elite poetry clubs around. She is to be named the country’s poet laureate on Thursday.


Peter DaSilva for The New York Times
Kay Ryan, 62, will become the country’s 16th poet laureate.



Known for her sly, compact poems that revel in wordplay and internal rhymes, Ms. Ryan has won a carriage full of poetry prizes for her funny and philosophical work, including awards from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and in 2004, the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize, worth $100,000.
Still, she has remained something of an outsider.
“I so didn’t want to be a poet,” Ms. Ryan, 62, said in a phone interview from her home in Fairfax, Calif. “I came from sort of a self-contained people who didn’t believe in public exposure, and public investigation of the heart was rather repugnant to me.”
But in the end “I couldn’t resist,” she said. “It was in a strange way taking over my mind. My mind was on its own finding things and rhyming things. I was getting diseased.”
Dana Gioia, a poet and the chairman of the National Endowment for the Arts, was an early supporter of Ms. Ryan’s work, describing her as the “thoughtful, bemused, affectionate, deeply skeptical outsider.”
“She would certainly be part of the world if she could manage it,” he said. “She has certain reservations. That is what makes her like Dickinson in some ways.”
Poets, editors, critics and academics around the country offered advice to James H. Billington, the librarian of Congress, about whom to choose to succeed Charles Simic as the nation’s 16th poet laureate, who was appointed 2007. Ms. Ryan’s work has “this quality of simplicity; it’s highly accessible poetry,” Dr. Billington said. “She takes you through little images to see a very ordinary thing or ordinary sentiment in a more subtle and deeper way.”
Ms. Ryan likes to take familiar images and clichés and reincarnate them in a wholly original form. “The Other Shoe” reads:
Oh if it were
only the other
shoe hanging
in space before
joining its mate.
Her poems are spare. “An almost empty suitcase, that’s what I want my poems to be, few things,” Ms. Ryan said. “The reader starts taking them out, but they keep multiplying.”
Ms. Ryan grew up in small towns throughout the San Joaquin Valley and Mojave Desert. Her mother taught elementary school. A nervous person, her mother craved quiet, so there was virtually no television or radio playing in the home, Ms. Ryan said. In “Shark’s Teeth” she writes, “Everything contains some silence.” The poem continues:
An hour
of city holds maybe
a minute of these
remnants of a time
when silence reigned,
compact and dangerous
as a shark.
Her father was a dreamer. She once said he could “fail at anything,” having tried selling Christmas trees, drilling oil wells and working in a chromium mine.
It was after his death, when she was 19, that she started writing poems. But Ms. Ryan said she always had mixed feelings about it. “I wanted to do it, but I didn’t want to expose myself,” she said.
After briefly attending Antelope Valley College, she transferred to U.C.L.A., where she earned both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in English.
She moved to Marin County in 1971 and lives there now, with her partner, Carol Adair.
In 1976 she finally realized that she could not escape the poet inside her. She had decided to ride a bicycle from California to Virginia in 80 days. Riding along the Hoosier Pass in the Colorado Rockies, she said, she felt an incredible opening up, “an absence of boundaries, an absence of edges, as if my brain could do anything.”
“Finally I can ask the question: Can I be a writer?” The answer came back as a question, she said. “Do you like it?”
“So it was quite simple for me. I went home and began to work.”
Public recognition came slowly. It took 20 years for her to receive acclaim for her work. “All of us want instant success,” she said. “I’m glad I was on a sort of slow drip.”
Ms. Ryan has carved out a life conducive to poetry writing. She has taught the same remedial English course at the College of Marin in Kentfield, Calif., for more than 30 years. When asked if she thought her new position would make it harder to write, she replied, “No, uh-uh. I think it will make it impossible.”
She has published six books of poetry and her work regularly appears in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, and The New York Review of Books.
One of her first duties as poet laureate is an appearance at the National Book Festival on Sept. 27 on the National Mall in Washington. More formally she will kick off the Library of Congress’s annual literary series on Oct. 16 by reading her own work. The library doesn’t require much of its laureates, although in recent years many have undertaken projects to broaden poetry’s reach to children and adults. Ms. Ryan has no definite plans, but said she might like to “celebrate the Library of Congress,” adding “maybe I’ll issue library cards to everyone.”
For a woman who once shrank from exposing herself, this new position will put her in the public eye more than ever. But at this point Ms. Ryan is philosophical: “I realized that whatever we do or don’t do, we’re utterly exposed.”

This article has been revised to reflect the following correction:
Correction: July 18, 2008
An article on Thursday about Kay Ryan, the country’s new poet laureate, misstated the year she won the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize. It was 2004, not 1994.
