Hemisferios / Eternamente Audiobook

Hemisferios / Eternamente

Author: Pablo Pérez Rueda (blon) Narrator: Pablo Pérez Rueda (blon) Release Date: November 2019

Blon, el «rapero poeta» más querido y admirado del circuito freestyle, recita todos los poemas de sus dos libros editados hasta la fecha: Eternamente y Hemisferios. En Hemisferios, su segundo poemario, encontrarás la belleza que esconde el horror y la parte más cruel de la felicidad. Poemas sobre las dos caras, las múltiples visiones que el ser humano puede tener acerca de un mismo concepto y que, sorprendentemente, viajan desde un extremo al otro, haciendo que una cosa contenga en sí misma significados inversos. En Eternamente encontrarás poemas que hablan de la permanencia y del instante, del tiempo que marca el reloj y de los tiempos que nos marcan el amor, el dolor, el odio o la propia sociedad con sus complejos engranajes. Un viaje a través de la nostalgia de la infancia, de la reivindicación, del amor, del tiempo... que te encantará y te dejará huella. Elaudiolibro incluye cuatro poemas con música compuesta e interpretada por Ale Berraquero.

An American Sunrise: Poems Audiobook

An American Sunrise: Poems

Author: Joy Harjo Narrator: Joy Harjo Release Date: November 2019

A stunning new volume from the first Native American Poet Laureate of the United States, informed by her tribal history and connection to the land. In the early 1800s, the Mvskoke people were forcibly removed from their original lands east of the Mississippi to Indian Territory, which is now part of Oklahoma. Two hundred years later, Joy Harjo returns to her family's lands and opens a dialogue with history. In An American Sunrise, Harjo finds blessings in the abundance of her homeland and confronts the site where her people, and other indigenous families, essentially disappeared. From her memory of her mother's death, to her beginnings in the native rights movement, to the fresh road with her beloved, Harjo's personal life intertwines with tribal histories to create a space for renewed beginnings. Her poems sing of beauty and survival, illuminating a spirituality that connects her to her ancestors and thrums with the quiet anger of living in the ruins of injustice. A descendent of storytellers and "one of our finest?and most complicated?poets" (Los Angeles Review of Books), Joy Harjo continues her legacy with this latest powerful collection.

Felon: Poems Audiobook

Felon: Poems

Author: Reginald Dwayne Betts Narrator: Reginald Dwayne Betts Release Date: October 2019

A searing volume by a poet whose work conveys "the visceral effect that prison has on identity" (New York Times). Felon tells the story of one man in fierce, dazzling poems― canvassing his wide range of emotions and experiences through homelessness, underemployment, love, drug abuse, domestic violence, fatherhood, and grace― and, in doing so, creates a travelogue for an imagined life. Reginald Dwayne Betts confronts the funk of post-incarceration existence and examines prison not as a static space, but as a force that enacts pressure throughout a person's life. Challenging the complexities of language, Betts animates what it means to be a "felon." From "Night" What she tells me: prison killed you my love, killed you so dead that you're not here now, you're never here, you're always.

Selected Poems Audiobook

Selected Poems

Author: Denise Riley Narrator: Denise Riley Release Date: October 2019

Denise Riley has pursued her singular path with a determined disregard for poetic fashion: a poet of immense musical gifts and formal skill, as happy in traditional forms as experimental, her non-alignment with any 'tribe' has led to a rich and various poetry that, while densely allusive and intellectually uncompromising, remains emotionally open towards the reader at the most profound level. Say Something Back, her lyric meditation on bereavement, won Riley universal acclaim - and a wide and long-deserved readership. Her Selected Poems offers a generous overview of a working life which has taken in philosophy, feminism, literary history, song and aphorism - and within which the old certainties are interrogated and shaken at every turn. Hers is a voice through which we come to better understand one another, the meaning of our time here, and the nature of human communication itself. 'Wide-ranging, sometimes anguished, her poems are fascinating and often beautiful, and certainly more than usually thought-provoking.' - Guardian

Author: Emmy Marucci Narrator: Emmy Marucci Release Date: October 2019

With genuine curiosity and tenderness, Marucci asks of herself, her loved ones, and perfect strangers the child's perennial question: 'Will you tell me a story?'  Music by Nick Ceglia.
