It is true that he has been one of the inner circle of the 'Beats' from the first, but many admirers of his poetry feel that it belongs quite as much to other and older traditions in world literature. One of these is the revival of pure poetry whenever an "original"--be it Rimbaud or Whitman--has broken with current verse conventions to give free rein to the magic of language. Another is that ancient pre-occupation of poets--the sense of the immediacy of death. Like Villon or Dylan Thomas, Corso lives close to the mystery of death. It is, perhaps, his central theme, on which variations ranging from the terrible to the comic are sounded. But Corso is seldom macabre. A bursting vitality always carries him back to the sensations of the living, though always it is the reality behind the obvious which has caught his eye. "How I love to probe life," Corso has written, "That's what poetry is to me, a wondrous prober... It's not the metre or measure of a line, a breath; not 'law' music; but the assembly of great eye sounds placed into an inspired measured idea."

The Encyclopedia of American Poetry: The Twentieth Century contains over 400 entries that treat a broad range of individual poets and poems, along with many articles devoted to topics, schools, or periods of American verse in the century. Entries fall into three main categories: poet entries, which provide biographical and cultural contexts for the author's career; entries on individual works, which offer closer explication of the most resonant poems in the 20th-century canon; and topical entries, which offer analyses of a given period of literary production, school, thematically constructed category, or other verse tradition that historically has been in dialogue with the poetry of the United States.

Can you solve the case called "Happy Deathday to You"? Here's the scenario: It is the 50th birthday party of billionaire businessman Ronald Stump and no expense has been spared. His penthouse abode high above New Metro in the Stump Tower is packed to the hilt with both lavish decorations and celebrity guests. Stump's background is checkered to say the least. He seems to have his fingers in everything that is happening in New Metro-and with power and prestige come resentment and revenge. It's no secret that he's been able to make or break the careers of many people. And, he's made many enemies over the years. As the party unfolds, the guests drink toasts and enjoy the view of the large metropolis that spreads out before their eyes. The assembled group of revelers represents a dream team of the rich and famous, all "friends" and acquaintances of Stump who presides like a king over the festivities. Finally, the moment arrives to wheel in the large birthday cake and sing a jubilant chorus of "Happy Birthday to You" to the stoic honored guest. He listens to the musical tribute, inhales a deep breath and blows out the candles on the culinary masterpiece. Suddenly, a loud explosion rocks the room. When the smoke clears, Stump is lying on the floor motionless. Paramedics are called who arrive too late. Stump is dead. Who would dare to turn a birthday bash into a deathday dirge?

Birth, Death & InBetween came to Ms Corwin as a title when friends began to die. Her generation was ‘starting to go’. “A collection comes about at a turning point; one is grieved, one wonders at the disappearance, the invisibility, the untimeliness, what was before, what may come after. No longer a matter of death and dying, but of birth, death and the in between. The speechlessness turns into a need to speak. You don’t put together a collection of poetry overnight. There is no arbitrary subject. There are threads. A collection is a matter of emphasis, accentuation and priority. One’s generation begins to go; the whole of the sidewalk full of people coming at you will be gone in a hundred years, not a person coming at you left. If that is not a source of wonderment, what is?” Birth, Death & InBetween is a collection of 300 some odd poems written over a period of 40 years observing, examining, questioning, accepting the plain facts and the elusive nuances.

In 1977, the Heart Break Killer haunted Brooklyn. Victims were found stabbed in the chest with a cartoon heart carved sickeningly into their skin. The serial killer was Elliot Hurley, and a policeman responding to a disturbance call killed her just as she completed her final murder—although some suspect there was a cover up. Ten years later, young Oliver Hann moves to Brooklyn to attend a prestigious police academy. He writes a paper outlining the story of 1977, and his doubts about the veracity of it, so his professor invites Oliver to join the Theory Club, in which brilliant students spin theories about murder and mayhem. When a young woman is discovered in a bush, killed in the same way as victims in 1977, it appears that the Heart Break Killer has returned from the grave. Oliver and his Theory Club friends take to the streets to find the copycat killer, exposing the cover-up and solving a decade old mystery.

When one whom you love dies, the day of their birth and the day of their death will never be the same. Happy Birthday, Sweetheart! asks the questions that we all want to ask, but seldom voice aloud. How do I celebrate his birthday? What is she doing today? Is this day special in heaven? Who is he with? Is she aware of others in heaven? Does he know what I am thinking and doing to celebrate him today? There are many things we cannot know about heaven until we are there, and it can be comforting to use our imaginations until we know for sure. Questions are healthy, and we need to look for answers. When answers are not to be found, we can dream and consider possibilities while leaving the final details up to God. God has given us vivid imaginations to help us through those times of unanswered questions, and Happy Birthday, Sweetheart! helps us to use this wonderful gift. This book is for anyone whose loved one is in heaven, but especially for those who have lost a child. No matter how long they have been there, no matter the circumstances of their arrival, no matter your age or relationship, the pain and loss are real. Every year, there are two days which leave you in a feeling of nostalgia and a shadow of melancholy. The birthday of the one you love and the day they died are forever changed once your child is no longer living here on earth. I pray that you have a relationship with Jesus and will be reunited with your child someday. Until then, I pray that you will celebrate the day they were born into this life and also celebrate the day they were born into heaven.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • Laurie Notaro has an uncanny ability to attract insanity—and leave readers doubled over with laughter. Need proof? Check out The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death and try not to bust a gut. Join Notaro as she experiences the popular phenomenon of laser hair removal (because at least one of her chins should be stubble-free); bemoans the scourge of the Open Mouth Coughers on America’s airplanes and in similarly congested areas; welcomes the newest ex-con (yay, a sex offender!) to her neighborhood; and watches, against her own better judgment, every Discovery Health Channel special on parasites and tapeworms that has ever aired—resulting in an overwhelming fear that a worm the size of a python will soon come a-knocking on her back door. In Notaro’s world, strangers are stranger than fiction. One must always check the hotel bathroom for hobo hairs and consciously remember not to stare at old men with giant man-boobies. And then there are the lessons she has learned the hard way: Though it may seem like a good idea, it’s best not to hire a tweaked-out homeless guy to clean up your yard. The Plain Dealer says that Laurie Notaro is “a scream, the freak-magnet of a girlfriend you can’t wait to meet for a drink to hear her latest story.” With The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death, Notaro proves she’s not only funny but resigned to the fact that you can’t look bad ass in a Prius. Don’t even try.

The murder of an alderman on the canal towpath of the north country town of Fellaby brings about a crisis in the lives of the men who run the place and those who tell them how to run it. The papers are filled with eulogies of the dead man, of his rags-to-riches rise to power, but Detective-Superintendent Simon Kenworthy of the Yard soon discovers that Alderman Edward Barson was definitely one of Fellaby’s least favourite sons. While the local police explore the more orthodox avenues of investigation, Kenworthy turns to an unlikely source for help – fifteen-year-old Putty, a tough young girl whose local knowledge and influence he is to use to his own decidedly unorthodox ends. A precursor to The Casual Vacancy, Death of an Alderman was John Buxton Hilton’s first novel and introduces that most popular of detectives, Simon Kenworthy.
