Inhaltsangabe: The sheen of Shot Silk comes from the colors of translation and travel, and Terese Coe seems to have lived and traveled everywhere. I have long admired her translations from Ronsard, Heine and Rilke, and am glad to have her own lucid poems to set beside them. If she has, like Yeats, made her song a coat, she wears it well.
Intelligence and mastery are not enough, some say, but work always stands a better chance with both. Terese Coe?s Shot Silk requires no chances because those admirable qualities are in the service of something far more: a deeply touching grace that can laugh while fully comprehending the disasters of humanity. The range is remarkable and civilised. Terese Coe is a kind of Joseph Haydn of the word?but of our time, our ways of happening.
Here is someone who knows what she?s doing and that?s a relief. Wendy Cope comes to mind because Terese does something which is not parody where she takes the shape of a poem and plays a variation, as it were. Like Wendy, she chooses Christopher Smart?s poem about his cat Jeoffroy. There is a fine cento, that is a poem made up entirely from the lines of other poems, popular in Latin a thousand years ago, where Virgil?s lines were used to make Christian poems. But Terese Coe embraces difficulty. She is the master (the mistress?) of the very short poem. There is a rondeau. There are a lot of sonnets. There are translations which read like her poems (and that?s good).
Über den Autor: Terese Coe?s poems and translations appear extensively in journals (see the Acknowledgements page), libraries, and databases in the US, UK, Ireland, and Canada, including the World Trade Center Archives, the Poetry Library at the South Bank Centre in London, and JSTOR. Her poem ?More? was heli-dropped across London as part of the 2012 London Olympics? Poetry Parnassus, and her work appears in anthologies such as The Cento: A Collection of Collage Poems, Irresistible Sonnets, Grace Notes (a First Things anthology), Anthology One (from the Alsop Review Press), and Phoenix Rising from the Ashes. Coe has been awarded two grants from Giorno Poetry Systems, First Prize in the Schaible Sonnet Contest, and was twice a Finalist in the Barnstone Translation Prize, among other awards and finalist nominations. WordTech Communications awarded her a publication prize for her first collection of poems, The Everyday Uncommon. Having received an M.A. in dramatic literature from the University of Utah, in her youth she worked as a drama critic, columnist, and editor as well as traveling around the world as a writer and teacher. She began submitting poems for publication after 9-11 and currently teaches English writing at the NY Institute of Technology. Her two children, their partners, and her grandchild are sources of joy.
