With Our Baggage, Alan Berecka
1 Alan Berecka With Our Baggage
Lamar University Literary Press 2013 0985255293 / 9780985255299 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Lamar University Literary Press, Paperback, 2013, Book Condition: New. The poems in 'With Our Baggage' remind us of the baggage we all carry and show us how to do it with grace. The range of subjects is vast, from baseball heroes to the failures of fathers, from being a poet to being Polish in South Texas, from God's radio to American machismo. But the real subject here is the human animal in its many glorious strivings and bumbling failures. The result is a vision of the world as a strange, funny, beautiful place. Though Berecka's poems are sometimes hilarious, tongue-in-cheek, and satiric, they are also painful, poignant, and bittersweet. These varied poems offer the reader a touching human response to incursions of the holy into everyday life.

An Affair of the Stilled Heart, Bobby Aldridge
2 Bobby Aldridge An Affair of the Stilled Heart
Lamar University Literary Press 2016 1942956185 / 9781942956181 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Lamar University Literary Press, Paperback, 2016, Book Condition: New. Never has there been anything so intimate yet so unknown as death. It is the dedicated spouse to life itself, unavoidable and inseparable. Often spoken of together as though they were one; Todd and Mary, Frank and Linda, Life and Death. They are a tempestuously passionate couple. With a civil and proper public face and darker private struggles, they are always discreetly at odds until their passion spills into the public eye and we see the power and intrusiveness of their relationship. We are their children, witness to their fights and their affections, all of us everywhere, regardless of culture and place. Yet each person, each tradition, handles the repercussions of troubled mortality differently. It is an affair of the stilled heart, loving, kind, brutal, or loveless, that unifies us. In the broadness of war and genocide and the closeness of still birth, as a species we are prevented from life everlasting only by the one singular certainty. With reverence, passion, and introspection 'An Affair of the Stilled Heart' explores death and dying and our relationship to death through formal and free verse across many cultural and religious traditions.

Early Men, Britt Haraway
3 Britt Haraway Early Men
Lamar University Literary Press 2016 1942956258 / 9781942956259 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Lamar University Literary Press, Paperback, 2016, Book Condition: New. Most of the short stories in this collection are set in the south, places like Memphis, East Tennessee, North Mississippi,and Texas. A blurb from Josh Weil:
"These moving stories of characters struggling with their own flaws, fighting to right their tilted lives or survive a loved one's loss, are richly imagined, admirably complex, and shine with the subtlety and sensitivity of truly fine writing. But Early Men is more than that. By bravely grappling with the political as well as the personal, Britt Haraway tackles one of literature's most difficult, yet vital, roles and, with this debut, offers us important insights not only about ourselves, but about the wider world in which we live." --Josh Weil, author of The Great Glass Sea

Underground Musicians, Carol Coffee Reposa
4 Carol Coffee Reposa Underground Musicians
Lamar University Literary Press 2013 0985083808 / 9780985083809 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Lamar University Literary Press, Paperback, 2013, Book Condition: New. In Underground Musicans Carol Coffee Reposa presents a delicious double metaphor of geography and color. In her itinerary she leads us first to Mexico and Ecuador, then to Western Europe, to Russia, then back home. In this collection, so much depends upon images-the pulse of guitars and trumpets in Veracruz, the Nazca lines spiraling across the horizon, the picture of Lucifer's face turned away as God hurls him from the heavens and scores of other images that, in Carol's talented hands, carry literal and metaphoric meanings. With this book Carol Coffee Reposa establishes herself as one of the most insightful of Texas poets.

Water, Earth, Air, Fire, and Picket Fences, Carol Smallwood
5 Carol Smallwood Water, Earth, Air, Fire, and Picket Fences
Lamar University Literary Press 2014 0991107489 / 9780991107483 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Lamar University Literary Press, Paperback, 2014, Book Condition: New. That time brings metamorphosis to all things should be evident living on a planet with molten lava at its core. Shakespeare wrote about sea-change transforming our bones “into something rich and strange”. Most change is so subtle that we do not see it even though it has been going on since the Big Bang—and we may speculate if it was happening even earlier. The classical four elements: Water, Earth, Air, and Fire regarded for centuries as the states-of-matter or simplest main parts of which anything consists were used to divide the formal and free verse poems. The last section, Picket Fences, is the added fifth element.

Rottens, Chatterboxes & Mayors: Three Short Plays from the Spanish Golden Age, Catalina Castillon, AndyC
6 Catalina Castillon, AndyC Rottens, Chatterboxes & Mayors: Three Short Plays from the Spanish Golden Age
Lamar University Literary Press 2016 1942956347 / 9781942956341 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Lamar University Literary Press, Paperback, 2016, Book Condition: New. The three short plays in this volume deal with timeless important issues, have the potential for a diverse cast, and most important, they are funny. Written during the Spanish Golden Age, they still resonate with a modern audience as they deal with the basic foibles of the human condition. Historians know that Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (1547-1616), author of the first great novel, Don Quixote, wrote one of these plays: The Election of the Mayors of Daganzo, and internal evidence in the other two plays suggest Cervantes also wrote The Hospital of the Rotten and The Chatterboxes.

Elder Tree, Chris Ellery
9 Chris Ellery Elder Tree
Lamar University Literary Press 2016 1942956320 / 9781942956327 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Lamar University Literary Press, Paperback, 2016, Book Condition: New. Elder Tree embodies a lifetime of experience and observation, dream and fantasy, quest and discovery in the shape of the mystical elder. As the thirteenth and last tree of the Celtic tree calendar, the elder is associated with pain, dissolution, and death. It provided both the wood of the cross and the limb from which Judas hanged himself. But it is also a medicinal tree, source of many folk remedies. And as the tree of the Triple Goddess, its energies are feminine and committed to the blessings and beauties of incarnate life. So it is also a tree of healing, rebirth, resurrection. The paradox of the elder is the crux of this collection, and readers who are paying attention just might experience renewal on the limbs of its many epiphanies. "The lesson of the elder is a difficult one," says Jane Gifford in The Wisdom of Trees. Perhaps so. Yet it is a lesson that everyone must learn.

14 David Bowles Flower, Song, Dance: Aztec and Mayan Poetry
Lamar University Literary Press 2013 0985255285 / 9780985255282 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Lamar University Literary Press, Paperback, 2013, Book Condition: New. Winner of the 2014 Soeurette Diehl Fraser Award for Best Translation from the Texas Institute of Letters. In pre-Colombian Mexico, song and dance were vital components of daily life. However, all that is left of this vast tradition of lyrical verse are fewer than 200 poems, most contained in three codices written just after the Spanish conquest. In this new translation, David Bowles employs the tools of English verse to craft accessible, powerful versions of selected songs from the Aztec and Mayan civilizations, striking a balance between the features of the original performance and the expectations of modern readers of poetry. With full-color illustrations, a thorough glossary and insightful introduction, 'Flower, Song, Dance' brings a neglected literary tradition to life for the 21st-century.

15 David Breeden, Wally Swis Daodejing
Lamar University Literary Press 2015 0991532171 / 9780991532179 TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Lamar University Literary Press, Paperback, 2015, Book Condition: New. This is a multi-step collaborative translation that began with the Chinese put into English, then the three scholar-poets worked on the language of their first step in translation to make better available to modern readers the experience of a poem through an integration of form and meaning. Without such an integration, the aesthetic experience of reading a poem is at best only partial, at worst not a meaningful experience at all. This new Daodejing is both the old one with all its majesty and a new one offered in twenty-first century American English as wielded by true experts: poets who will not and cannot divorce meaning from form.
