Be firm, rail over the river, to support those who lean idly, yet haste with the hasting current

The Brooklyn Bridge, one of the most iconic structures in America, opened on May 24, 1883. It’s been immortalized in poetry, songs, and paintings. Today, it turns 127 years old!

Celebrate the Brooklyn Bridge with two Fordham Press titles:

Brooklyn Is: Southeast of the Island, Travel Notes is the first time James Agee’s prose poem to Brooklyn has been published in book form. The book also features a foreword by Brooklyn writer Jonathan Lethem.

Hart Crane’s ‘The Bridge’ is publishing in February 2011 and will be featured at Fordham’s booth at Book Expo America this week! Hart Crane’s long poem, “The Bridge,” debuted in 1930 and was immediately deemed an ambitious failure, a reputation that has proven difficult to repudiate.  However, many today regard the poem as one of the most influential masterpieces of the 20th century. Though its merits are now more widely appreciated, the poem is still difficult to digest. Finally, Hart Crane’s ‘The Bridge’, edited by Lawrence Kramer, offers valuable insights and resources for how to fully understand and appreciate the iconic work. The book offers all the modern student needs to elevate Crane’s poem to its intended heights.

Manhattan: Letters from Prehistory is the story of Hélène Cixous, a young French student who traveled to the US in 1965 to study the manuscripts of several beloved authors. The narrative shifts from the original journey, forward in time, and then back in memory, tracing the importance of writing and reading literature in our lives. It’s “an investigation of the power of Literature, of the ways in which fiction keeps secret what it seems to expose, lies and tells the truth at the same time. Hélène Cixous infuses this haunting story of deception with her unique poetic style, incisive wit, and philosophical acumen.”—Brigitte Weltman-Aron, University of Florida

William Carlos Williams once said, “A poem can be made of anything.” On the Anarchy of Poetry and Philosophy: A Guide for the Unruly explores the meaning of art–in our modern culture, where are the boundaries? What is the difference between art and product? Gerald Bruns ruminates on the ways in which art becomes philosophy. In this provocative study, Bruns answers that the culture of modernism is a kind of anarchist community, where the work of art is apt to be as much an event or experience—or, indeed, an alternative form of life—as a formal object. In modern writing, philosophy and poetry fold into one another. In this book, Bruns helps us to see how.

NOW: $13 (was $25)
