A vibrant collection of poems perfect to be performed by two or more voices! In this collection, Julia Donaldson has chosen poems with performance by children in mind, and in the notes section at the end of the book are her notes and ideas on performing them. Julia's passionate belief that performance can help children enjoy reading and grow in confidence is informed by her own experience both as a child and now, working with groups of children to bring stories, poems and songs to life. The poems range from classics by Edward Lear, W H Auden and Eleanor Farjeon to contemporary work by Michael Rosen, John Agard and Clare Bevan. Illustrated throughout with exquisite, expressive lino-cuts, this is a book for teachers, parents, children: anyone who loves great poetry. This beautiful collection would also make a wonderful gift.

Englisch und deutsch. Übersetzt von Johanna Wange. »Sie ist mehr als modern; sie ist praktisch Science-Fiction«, schreibt der Guardian über Kate Tempest. Zu ihren Einflüssen zählen James Joyce und Wu-Tang Clan, Public Enemy und Virginia Woolf. Sie beherrscht den innigen Volksliedton ebenso wie Londons Straßenslang, wandelt virtuos zwischen lyrischer Tradition und Hip-Hop. Ihre Gedichte bemächtigen sich auf radikal heutige, politische Weise des Mythos von Teiresias, einer zweigeschlechtlichen Figur, von den Göttern geblendet und prophetisch begabt. In vier Teilen folgt der Zyklus dem Kind, dem Jüngling, der Frau und dem Mann, vermittelt eindrucksvoll, wie es ist, alt zu werden und »sehend«, dazu verurteilt, unserer neoliberalen Gesellschaft die Wahrheit zu sagen – und keiner hört zu. Lyrik-Empfehlung 2016 der Deutschen Akademie für Sprache und Dichtung, der Stiftung Lyrik Kabinett und der Literaturwerkstatt Berlin.

Dialect poems by one of the nineteenth century's most talented African American lyricists Paul Laurence Dunbar was “the most promising young colored man” in nineteenth-century America, according to Frederick Douglass, and subsequently one of the most controversial. His plantation lyrics, written while he was an elevator boy in Ohio, established Dunbar as the premier writer of dialect poetry and garnered him international recognition. More than a vernacular lyricist, Dunbar was also a master of classical poetic forms, who helped demonstrate to post–Civil War America that literary genius did not reside solely in artists of European descent. William Dean Howells called Dunbar’s dialect poems “evidence of the essential unity of the human race, which does not think or feel black in one and white in another, but humanly in all.” For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.

Irgendwo in London, es ist 4.18 Uhr. Sieben Menschen liegen wach, gequält von Sorgen, Ängsten und Erinnerungen. Nacheinander lernen wir sie kennen, blicken auf ihre Leben: beschädigt, entfremdet, scheinbar ohne jede Hoffnung. Doch dann bricht ein Sturm über die Stadt herein, treibt die Einsamen und Verletzten auf die Straße und lässt sie erkennen, wie tief sie miteinander verbunden sind. Kate Tempests Langgedicht Let Them Eat Chaos ist nicht nur ein mitreißendes Sprachkunstwerk, sondern auch ein wütender Aufruf zum Handeln, gegen soziale Ungerechtigkeit, gegen Verrohung und politische Gewalt, für mehr Empathie, Gemeinsamkeit und Hoffnung im Chaos.

Die Zwillingsschwester aus dem Spiegel ist eine Prinzessin: Ellen hat eine Doppelgängerin, die eines Tages mit eben denselben Windpocken-Pickeln aus dem Spiegel steigt. Spiegelschön heisst sie und ist offenbar eine Prinzessin. Und sie tut auch so. Sie hat ihre ganz speziellen Vorstellungen und Wünsche und kümmert sich wenig um Regeln und Regelmässigkeiten unseres normalen Lebens. Im Theater von Schneewittchen übernimmt Spiegelschön ziemlich eigenwillig eine Rolle und bringt damit die Vorstellung durcheinander. Und auch in der Schule passt sie sich den Vorgaben der Lehrerin nur knapp an. Na ja, sie ist eben eine Prinzessin, die alles darf und alles kann. Aber zum Schluss des Buches verschwindet sie leider so unerwartet, wie sie anfangs erschienen war. Ab 9 Jahren, gut, Ruedi W. Schweizer.

Is this poetry? Math? A brainteaser? Yes! It’s all that and more. The poet J. Patrick Lewis has reimagined classic poems—such as Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven” and Langston Hughes’s “April Rain Song”—and added a dash of math. Between the silly parodies and the wonderfully wacky art, kids will have so much fun figuring out the puzzles, they won’t guess they’re learning! Answers appear unobtrusively on each page, and engaging information about the original poets is included. Math games and concepts, poetry and poet biographies—it’s all so cleverly put together. This funny book is a treat for fans of words and numbers alike.
