presentazione di tre libri di Marco Giovenale

new from il verri editions: “eco / echo”, poems of charles bernstein translated into italian

see :

ECO / ECHO: Poems of Charles Bernstein translated and edited by Carla  Buranello, with additional translations by Luigi Ballerini, Marco Giovenale, Gherardo Bortolotti, and Milli Graffi. Published by Il Verri Editions. Avaialbe now HERE (, at bookstores and online. 296 pages.

Eco / Echo collects the poems chosen by the translators  starting from Senses of Responsibility in 1979 up to the latest book released in the United States in Topsy-Turvy. But this is not a bilingual facing-pages collection. It is a two-faced book: on way the poems in Italian, flip the book around (topsy-turvy), you get the poems in English.  The book also includes an essay by Bernstein on the relationship between contemporary American poetry and Italian poetry and an introduction by the editor. For Bernstein, echopoetics is to think of writing as a form of listening towards a non-linear resonance of one motif bouncing off another. Even more, it is the feeling of allusion in the absence of allusion. In other words, the echo I’m looking for,  Bernstein  tells us —is an empty space: the shadow of an absent source.

flicker / nik sheehan. 2009

The flicker effect was identified by the famously independent-minded scientist W. Grey Walter in his best- selling 1953 book The Living Brain.
Grey Walter – who was soon to become the father of Artificial Intelligence – discovered that by using high-powered stroboscopes and experimenting with trigger feedback techniques where the flash was set to fire in synchronization with the brain’s rhythms, the brain is, “transformed temporarily to a different sort of brain.” Walter found that time itself could become lost or disturbed. As he observed of one subject:

“[He had] the sense of having been pushed sideways in time by flicker. Yesterday was no longer behind, and tomorrow was no longer ahead..”

Stroboscopic light, or light flashing on the eye between 8 and 13 flashes per second, induces alpha wave activity in the brain – a state normally associated with dreaming and creativity. Subjects often report seeing shapes and colours, some have full-blown hallucinations, others mystical experiences. Approximately one in 4,000 people will have an epileptic seizure.

In 1997, ten million Japanese schoolchildren, and some adults, tuned into the animé cartoon Pokemon to see a “flashing explosion with high frequency red and blue flicker stimulation” hit the screen and persist. What happened next sparked international headlines. Some viewers went into a trance-like state, as if hypnotized. Others experienced altered vision and shortness of breath. Some passed out, others had seizures. Hospitals all over Japan received admissions, though nobody was permanently damaged.

história da poesia visual brasileira _ 2019

Thanks to Yuri Bruscky

Here’s the PDF file of the catalog of the exhibition História da Poesia Visual Brasileira (History of Brazilian Visual Poetry), held in Sesc Bom Retiro (São Paulo/SP, Brazil), in 2019. Curators: Yuri Bruscky, Paulo Bruscky, Adolfo Montejo Navas. The expo also included a sound poetry section.

This publication was linked to a second (and summarized) version of the exhibition, which was originally held in 2016 at the Museu de Arte Moderna ALoísio Magalhães/Mamam (Recife/PE, Brazil) — and resulted in a more extensive book in terms of compiled works and republished historical/anthological texts (to be digitally available soon).
