The Book Of Colors And Painters by Korkut Onaran The Book Of Colors And Painters by Korkut Onaran
Červená Barva Press, 2009

The Book of Colors and Painters contains a 15 page poem (titled The Book of Colors) and 6 shorter poems that complete each other. The Book of Colors attempts to create a community of colors, each having its own personality, along with the richness of relationships one can find in a community. By means of parentheses, footnotes, and parentheses in the footnotes, the poem tries to create multiple-voices and depth. The poem is organized like a one-act play with its opening, introduction, development, and closure. The sections - 15 in number - create a rhythm through which new themes are introduced and overlapped on the previous ones.

Korkut Onaran, originally from Turkey, lives in Boulder, Colorado. He practices architecture and urban design and teaches in University of Colorado as an assistant professor adjunct. He has received the second prize in 2006 Baltimore Review Poetry Competition. His poetry has been published in journals such as Penumbra, Rhino, Peralta, Colere, Writer's Journal, Water - Stone Review, Bayou, and White Pelican Review.

Dzvinia Orlowsky

Except for One Obscene Brushstroke by Dzvinia Orlowsky Except for One Obscene Brushstroke
by Dzvinia Orlowsky
Carnegie Mellon University Press, 2003

A Pushcart Prize recipient, Dzvinia Orlowsky is founding editor of Four Way Books, a contributing editor to Agni, The Marlboro Review, and Shade and currently teaches at the Solstice Low-Residency MFA in Creative Writing Program of Pine Manor College. Her translation of Alexander Dovzhenko’s novella, The Enchanted Desna was published by House Between Water Collections in 2006. She lives in Marshfield, Massachusetts with her husband Jay and their son and daughter, Max and Raisa.

"A candid and uncompromising voice- Dzvinia Orlowsky's poems unearth powerful secrets with lucid obsevation and biting tenderness."
—Maria Flook

"Weeks after I'd first read Dzvinia Orlowsky's Except for One Obscene Brushstroke, images from several of the poems would stop me in parking lots, give me pause in the supermarket. That's the bittersweet power of Ms. Orlowsky's fearsome gift of clarity- the words sink deep and then haunt."
—Dennis Lehane

A Handful of Bees by Dzvinia Orlowsky A Handful of Bees by Dzvinia Orlowsky
Carnegie Mellon University Press, 2008

A Pushcart Prize recipient, Dzvinia Orlowsky is founding editor of Four Way Books, a contributing editor to Agni, The Marlboro Review, and Shade and currently teaches at the Solstice Low-Residency MFA in Creative Writing Program of Pine Manor College. Her translation of Alexander Dovzhenko’s novella, The Enchanted Desna was published by House Between Water Collections in 2006. She lives in Marshfield, Massachusetts with her husband Jay and their son and daughter, Max and Raisa.

"Originally published in 1994 by Carnegie Mellon University Press, A Handful of Bees has been republished as a Classic Contemporary by Carnegie Mellon. The collection embarks with poems reflecting on the passing of Mrs. Orlowsky's father (to whom the book is dedicated). Orlowsky raises the tragedy of losing a parent to a universal plane that's both earnest and cathartic, where even simple belongings of the deceased are imbued with power and testimony. There is a thread of sadness that plaits its way through this volume. Even through the poems on life with immigrant parents, there is a stark, visible yearning. The world of home and the world outside and the conflict of the two to coexist. A situation that many Americans of any given ethnicity can immediately grasp. Imagery in A Handful of Bees is never random, but lucid, in the moment like hot glass forged into a sharp gem. A Handful of Bees is immediately personal, international, and, filtered through the prism of the heart, these poems come forth universally. Dzvinia Orlowsky films a screenplay for the intuition. In just this one volume of sixty-one pages, she undefeatedly answers as many life questions as she has conjured. With stealth, imparting the reader a sense of "being there" in the human condition."
—Mike Amado, Ibbetson Update, 2008

Convertible Night, Flurry of Stones by Dzvinia Orlowsky Convertible Night, Flurry of Stones
by Dzvinia Orlowsky
Carnegie Mellon University Press, 2008

A Pushcart Prize recipient, Dzvinia Orlowsky is founding editor of Four Way Books, a contributing editor to Agni, The Marlboro Review, and Shade and currently teaches at the Solstice Low-Residency MFA in Creative Writing Program of Pine Manor College. Her translation of Alexander Dovzhenko’s novella, The Enchanted Desna was published by House Between Water Collections in 2006. She lives in Marshfield, Massachusetts with her husband Jay and their son and daughter, Max and Raisa.

"Dzvinia Orlowsky's new book is full of the gift of life--its preciousness, its frailty, and the duende too, the passion to look unflinchingly at death. She's unwilling to sentimentalize, to patch over the difficult; she steadfastly resists the tawdry willful cheeriness that passes for transcendence. In 'Sexual Water,' Pablo Neruda says, 'Like an eye held hideously open,' and I think yes, this is the purpose of poetry: to look, to attend, to inhabit fully. In the white spaces between stanzas, in her attentive eye for original and un-invented images, in her dark, ironic wit, Orlowsky has drawn her poems close to the heart: teeming, damaged, defended and broken--which is to say, fully human."
—Ira Sadoff

The Enchanted Desna by Alexander Dovzhenko Translated by Dzvinia Orlowsky The Enchanted Desna by Alexander Dovzhenko
Translated by Dzvinia Orlowsky
House between Water, 2006

"Widely acknowledged as one of the greatest film directors of all time, Dovzhenko was also an important literary stylist whose lyrical prose has remained largely unknown to readers outside Ukraine. Dzvinia Orlowsky's subtle and nuanced translation leaves the reader feeling his story was born speaking english."
—Askold Melnyczuk

"These stories are at once lusty, earthy, vivid-and infused with shape-shifting volatility and mysticism. Dzvinia Orlowsky has captured a voice that is both plainspoken and full of awe."
—Melanie Drane
