Get this from a library. Ventrakl. [Christian Hawkey] -- "Envisioned in the form of a scrapbook, Ventrakl folds poetry, prose, biography, translation practices, and photographic imagery into an innovative collaboration with the 19th/early 20th century.

Christian Hawkey is the author of VENTRAKL (Ugly Duckling Presse, ), CITIZEN OF (Wave Books, ), Hour, Hour, a chapbook which includes drawings by the artist Ryan Mrowzowski (Delirium Press, ), and THE BOOK OF FUNNELS (Verse Press, ), winner of the Kate Tufts Discovery Award.

Christian Hawkey’s hard-to-classify Ventrakl puts prose, poetry, and photographs to fascinating work as he attempts to draw closer to the early-twentieth-century German writer Georg Trakl. Trakl was more than slightly enigmatic in his own day—Great War medic, pharmacist, drug addict, blisteringly gifted Expressionist poet, and suicide at twenty-seven—and Hawkey (whose previous work Author: Laird Hunt.

This scene came back to me abruptly when reading Christian Hawkey’s Ventrakl, a brilliant book that is part prose, part poetry, part biography, and part photographic essay. Loosely speaking, Ventrakl is a conversation between two real-life writers, one living and one dead.

Living is the poet, Hawkey, and dead is Georg Trakl, an Austrian poet. Ventrakl, Christian Hawkey’s latest book (out October 1st from UDP), centers around the late 19th /early 20th century German Experssionist poet Georg Trakl, and self-identifies, via subtitle, as a collaboration between the twoChristian Hawkey works to authentically communicate with Georg Trakl.

To read him, to hear him, to channel him, to understand him. Like many poems in the book, “Reasons Why Orphans” elaborates on a theme from Trakl, rather than presenting one translation for one poem that he wrote. The last poem in Ventrakl, "Grodek," is the only occasion where the English translation appears side by side with the German original.

It literally stops the book: Die ungebornen Enkel. VENTRAKL is a book that folds poetry, prose, biography and visual media into an experimental translation of 19th-century German Expressionist poet George Trakl.

After drafting associative “translations” of several Trakl poems—with only the source language’s sound and graphic representation as a guide—Christian Hawkey uses this material to generate poems and interview-poems (conducted.

A young poet's book, like Eugene Onegin or Sons and Lovers or the Notebooks of Maltte Laurids Brigge; a book of failure – which theme supports and is supported (I think) by the Ventrakl that contains my version.

To say that this larger book fails at being, for example, a translation of Georg Trakl's poetry, is to remain correctly, smugly. GKL Books - Av. Aviacion # San Borja, L Lima, Peru - Rated based on 16 Reviews "Hace unas semanas compré un par de títulos para mi hermano y /5(16).

Two individuals–two dots–separated by a literal line of division. There are many such figurative lines in Ventrakl: English/German, present/past, prose/poetry, reader/writer. The book stakes its success on the extent to which the identification of these lines reveals more than merely the.

His poetry collections include The Book of Funnels () and Citizen Of (), which won the Kate Tufts Discovery Award. His cross-genre, multimedia book Ventrakl () explores the work and life of poet Georg Trakl, an Austrian Expressionist, through layers of image, text, imagined Q&A, and conceptual translation.

Ventrakl by Christian Hawkey (Ugly Duckling Presse, Brooklyn, ) George Trakl is a late 19th/early 20th century German Expressionist poet. Christian Hawkey is a contemporary American poet.

Hawkey’s recent book Ventrakl, subtitled “[a collaboration],” is an imaginative literary experiment bringing their two disparate voices together. Throughout Ventrakl, Hawkey summons Trakl, “interviews” him, and works “with” him while engaging with Trakl’s poems, photographs, and biography.

Despite its fashionable references (Walter Benjamin, George Oppen, Jack Spicer) and multigenretude, Ventrakl ultimately emerges as a deeply sad, deeply felt book: Hawkey’s attempt at friend.

In his new book Ventrakl, Hawkey makes the problems of translation the central concern, rather than something to avoid (you can see it in the pun of the title--ventricle, of Trakl, English and German moving in and out of the book, forcing one's mouth to mispronounce the title, turning the reader's mouth, body into medium).

What saves Ventrakl from being a mere tour de force — an endlessly clever parodic version of specific Trakl source texts — is the book’s increasing sense of bewilderment: as the sequence.

New from Ugly Duckling Presse, Christian Hawkey’s Ventrakl is a “work of collaboration” between the author and Georg Trakl, who died in55 years before Hawkey was born. The book, then, is collaborative in the sense that Hawkey uses Trakl’s language, presence through language, image, presence through image, legacy, and other ghostly traces to interact with his corpus and his poems.

We've got a soft side, but aren't (yet!) weeping over this review of Christian Hawkey's Ventrakl (UDP ). Kelli Anne Noftle found the book in a bag given to her by the woman her ex ended up with (we would have burned it. a bigger woman, etc.). With so many good books being published every month, some literary titles worth exploring can get lost in the stacks.

Christian Hawkey, Ventrakl, Ugly Duckling Presse, $17 (paper) Christian Hawkey’s latest and arguably best book, Ventrakl, is a ghost story—not in the flashlight-under-the-face, seated-around-the-campfire sense, but rather in the hauntological, Derridean one.“Books—of the living or the dead—” Hawkey writes, “are the truest ghosts among us, the immaterial made material.”.

Ventrakl. I really loved this book. It is such a strikingly good way to conduct a poetic case study into a poet you find important to your own poetic journey. I liked the conversation pieces especially, where Christian Hawkey did fake interviews with Trakl and attempted to accurately represent the author while trying to understand why he would.
