Deadlift: Poems --- Sharon McCartney | Numéro Cinq

Deadlift: Poems --- Sharon McCartney | Numéro Cinq | The New Brunswick Literary Times | Scoop.it

New poems based on her CrossFit training by Canadian poet Sharon McCartney...

 These are beautiful touching poems replete with incisive perceptions about the relationship of love and pain, about the struggle of life. The Greeks called it agon. The Greeks saw no distinction between athleticism, art, philosophy, politics and love. They didn’t compartmentalize the way we do. Sharon tries here to reconnect art, emotion and the body.

Idaho by Emily Ruskovich - a great debut novel

Idaho by Emily Ruskovich - a great debut novel | The New Brunswick Literary Times | Scoop.it
There’s a rare, rich plangent quality to her sentences, as present in the spaces between the words, in what’s not said, as much as in what is articulated. As when Jenny, after weekly poetry classes in prison, suddenly realises that a new language is available to her, “the language between words”. Meaning – and if not forgiveness itself, something akin to it – we learn, can also be found in absences, in silences, and in not knowing.

‘Idaho’ by Emily Ruskovich is published by Chatto & Windus, £14.99
