I, Engine: Collected and New Works
-by Imogene Engine

i-engine-cover-image

Imogene Engine’s haunting, imagistic work has appeared (among other places) in nearly every collective publication of the Post-NeoAbsurdist movement since its founding 15 years ago, but until now has remained scattered through dozens of journals and anthologies. This collection, which includes both typeset and collaged poems, allows the intricate intertextuality of her oeuvre to emerge in all its fullness, revealing an intense and mysterious textual world teeming with depthless shadows and uncanny verbal collisions.

Pif Paf Patapan! A Sampler of Phonetic Poetry From the 19th Century
by Paul Verlaine, Théophile Gautier, Charles Nodier, & Francis Vielé-Griffin; ed. Olchar E. Lindsann
Pif Paf Patapan
Though Phonetic Poetry as a designated, focused practice was developed in the early years of the 20th Century, experiments with phonetics and non-semantic sound have been explored in the avant-garde since at least 1830. These are the poets who were read by the Futurists, Dadas, and Zoumists, and whose experiments (and others’?) they consolidated into a new form.

THE IN-

The Garrick Remedy
by Joseph Bouchardy; trans. Talia Felix.

bouchardy-garrick remedy cover

Though virtually forgotten today, Joseph Bouchardy (1810-1870) was a co-founder of the Bouzingo group, the first self-declared “avant-garde” collective, blending political radicalism, gothic-horror subculture, experimental literature and art, and the transformation of everyday life.

Trained as an engraver, he soon turned to playwriting, and produced many popular melodramas full of deception, disguise, double-crossing, violence, and convoluted, labyrinthine plots often taking place in labyrinthine settings.

This drole tale, written in 1835 on the cusp of Bouchardy’s switch from engraving to drama, is his first work ever translated into English. In  it, Lady Anna has fallen in love at a performance of Romeo and Juliet—but does she love the famous Romantic actor Garrick, or the character of Romeo, or the play itself? In any case, her father has offered £20,000 to anyone who can cure her infatuation.

Bouchardy swings the reader deviously back and forth between wistful sentiment and disillusioned irony. He also sheds some light on Romanticist attitudes toward theatre, history, truth, fiction, and the blending of life and art.

New Hamlet: A Comedy in Two Acts
—by Gleb Kolomiets and Inna Kirillova
new hamlet web photo
—–Trans. & annotated Gleb Kolomiets & Olchar Lindsann.
In this bleak, understated and drily comic play, Kirillova and Kolomiets explore family life and inter-generational dysfunction in contemporary Russia. Amply annotated to contextualise cultural and historical references.
Irina Robertovna:   Oh, Glebushka, eat a little! Mommy did her best!
[Gleb takes the sandwich. Irina Robertovna returns to her meal. Gleb puts the sandwich down. Evgeniy Alexandrovich squeezes his fist. Gleb takes the sandwich, bites off, holds in his mouth without chewing. ]
Irina Robertovna:   Would you like some borsch?
[Gleb starts chewing. Irina Robertovna returns to her plate. Gleb puts the sandwich down.]
Irina Robertovna: Gleb, you must be sick since you have no appetite. We’ll go to the hospital at once.
[Gleb bites off the sandwich. Irina Robertovna returns to her meal. Gleb puts the sandwich down.]
Evgeniy Alexandrovich (filling his plate): So, when will you defend your thesis?
[Gleb takes the sandwich, bites off, chews in order to feign that he can’t speak. Irina Robertovna kicks Evgeniy Alexandrovich under the table.]
Irina Robertovna: Zhenya, let the child have a meal! Glebushka, take this salad too, I did my best! Eat everything; don’t leave your strength on the plate.
[Gleb mechanically puts the salad on the plate. Irina Robertovna returns to her meal. Gleb puts the sandwich down. Evgeniy Alexandrovich cracks a bone with his teeth, sucks the marrow with great appetite and washes it down with yogurt.]
Irina Robertovna: Would you still like some borsch? Or compote?

#3: Two Poems by Alphonse Brot, translated & dedicated by Olchar Lindsann.

revenant forgotten tlp 3 brot minstrel onlineBrot, today one of the most obscure co-founders of the Bouzingo group, is the first person on record to call himself an adherent to the “avant-garde” in the modern sense, in an 1829 Preface. The term had been coined a few years earlier buy the socialist theorist Olinde Rodrigues, who called for the creation of such a hypothetical community. This is Brot’s first ever publication in English, and reproduces two newly-translated short poems from that 1829 collection Poems of Love & Diverse Poems, along with a short biography, a performance score dedicated to Brot by Olchar Lindsann, his only known portrait, and a selected bibliography in French.
