A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. The quarterly review MELUS said of John Yau, [his] poetic and critical writings.present an intriguing site of investigation into questions of racial authenticity, while Publishers Weekly has described Yau s poetry as [l]anding somewhere between the surreal-noir aesthetics of David Lynch s Mulholland Drive; a kinder, gentler version of J.K. Huysman s Paris decadence; and the aggregated syllables of Jackson Mac Low s overheard New York. In The Passionate Spectator , Yau turns his attention to some of our most renowned poets and artists, such as John Ashbery, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Robert Creeley, and Frank O Hara. The eleven essays herein include: Passionate Spectator: On Frank O Hara s Art Criticism ; At the Movies with Weldon Kees and Frank O Hara ; The Poet as Art Critic (On John Ashbery and Frank O Hara) ; Feelings Are Not Quiet (On Robert Creeley) ; Robert Creeley and George Baselitz s Signs ; Philip Lamantia ; Archie Rand s The Letter Paintings ; Street Song: The Art of Jean-Michel Basquiat and the Poetry of Kevin Young ; The Poetry of Jessica Stockholder s Titles ; The Poet Painters: Francesco Clemente and Nicola De Maria ; and Open Books: (On Emblems for Robert Duncan by Jess).

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

The Passionate Spectator collects essays, reviews, and art criticism by John Yau, an internationally lauded poet, critic, and curator. In this wide-ranging collection, Yau explores the intersection of art and poetry, dissolving boundaries between the artistic traditions and reimagining what it means to see and to write. Whether he is interpreting the poetic use of titles in Jessica Stockholder’s paintings, reviewing the collaborative book project between American poet Robert Creeley and German artist Georg Baselitz, or considering the significance of Frank O’Hara’s decision to have his portrait drawn wearing nothing but army boots, Yau is consistently daring, original, and contemporary.
 
Yau’s diverse critical sensibilities permeate The Passionate Spectator as he moves seamlessly between the visual and literary arts. Highlights of this collection include an essay on the poet as art critic, a study of the relationship between Kevin Young’s poetry and the paintings of Jean-Michel Basquiat, and an imaginative piece in which Yau speculates about what Jorge Luis Borges would have created had he been a visual artist. In the title essay, Yau lays out the duty of the spectator a duty shared by viewer, reader, critic, and artist: it is up to us to experience art, to engage and believe in its power.”.

About the Author:

John Yau is the author of many books of poetry, fiction, and criticism, including Borrowed Love Poems and The United States of Jasper Johns. His collaborations with artists have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Pompidou Center in Paris among many other venues. In 2002, France named him a Chevalier in the Order of Arts and Letters. He is on the faculty of Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University.
