Awater Poetry Prize 2018 [nomination]

Marije Langelaar wint de Awater Poëzieprijs 2018 voor haar prachtige bundel Vonkt en Joost Baars wint de VSB Poëzieprijs 2018 voor zijn ontroerende Binnenplaats. Wat een poëzieweek!

verdere bijzonderheden bleek, tot mijn stomme verbazing, ook kanshebber voor de Awater poëzieprijs 2018 te zijn geweest. Duizend dank aan Edwin Fagel en Joost Baars voor hun aanbeveling en voor het feit dat zij deze late bundel, verschenen op 23 november 2017, zo razendsnel gespot en gelezen hebben.

“Er zijn maar weinig bundels die ik meteen bij verschijnen verslind. Dit is zo’n bundel. Het lijkt één en al deconstructie, maar Rozalie Hirs is een de dichter van de nataliteit, van het meest radicale ‘ja’ dat ik ken. En verdere bijzonderheden is gewoon wéér beter dan haar vorige. Wat een oeuvre wordt dat.”
(Joost Baars, Awater, Winter 2018)

“Ik hou van de speelse, muzikale en tegelijk betekenisvolle poëzie van Hirs. In deze bundel zijn haar gedichten bij alle vormvastheid bijzonder springerig en spannend.”
(Edwin Fagel, Awater, Winter 2018)

Fijn ook om zo gebroederlijk naast Tonnus Oosterhoff en Joost Baars op de pagina te staan. Zie onder voor de volledige lijst kanshebbers (persbericht 11 januari 2018).

Tip of Joost Baars, Algemeen Dagblad

Tot en met 11 februari 2018 is het de Maand van de Spiritualiteit in de boekhandel. Zeven boekverkopers geven hun tips van recent verschenen boeken met een hoog spiritueel gehalte. In het Algemeen Dagblad noteert Nadine Ancher hun bevindingen. Joost Baars vraagt onder meer aandacht voor de dichtbundel verdere bijzonderheden van Rozalie Hirs:

Zij bouwt stilletjes aan een bijzonder oeuvre. In haar werk klinkt altijd de hele kosmos door, waarbij het de vraag is of we te maken hebben met maar één kosmos, of meerdere. Toch is verdere bijzonderheden misschien wel haar meest aardse bundel, haar meest lichamelijke ook, waarin opmerkelijk veel gedichten over geboorte gaan. Elke vezel van Hirs’ dichterschap zegt ‘ja’ tegen de wereld waarin we worden geworpen.

Poetry performance during Geestdrift Festival

At the invitation of Joost Baars, the poets Edwin Fagel, Willem Jan Otten, and Rozalie Hirs perform alongside him during Geestdrift Festival at Geertekerk, Utrecht, The Netherlands, on 28 October 2017.

Geestdrift is a festival around theological themes with lectures, readings, literature, visual arts, and music. This year’s theme concerns the radical hermeneutics and weak theology of John Caputo, who opens the festival at noon with a keynote lecture entitled ‘In search of a god worthy of the name’. The poetry readings by Joost Baars, Edwin Fagel, Willen Jan Otten, and Rozalie Hirs take place from 15:45-16:45 CET. The photograph on the left shows Dette Glashouwer who presents her theatre show ‘Money money money’ later in the afternoon.

The Geertekerk in Utrecht is one of the oldest churches in the city: its construction began in the 17th Century. It was remodeled during the 19th Century and has been one of the spiritual and cultural centers of eastern Holland ever since. Apart from fulfilling the religious needs of its parishioners, the Geertekerk also hosts musical and cultural performances, and exhibitions.

poems from gestamelde werken


a day

[1]

flying eyes with springy wings lights shed
on a map sketched in hands flaming wide-awake
I didn’t say that a breathless featherweight
nectar guide and pollen of living poppies blue
fields of cornflowers like heads popping out a one-eyed
cloudless sky that dreams emerge from
silkworms in thousands of yards
spinning languages on green-grey mulberry leaves covered
with hairs revealing threads come to meet
an amorous sun just like that uninvited or rain
stretching antennae for just a moment a touch
of unfolding wings towards what is (a day)

[2]

where do butterflies come from that invasion of springlike
sensitivity to light unbearable off-white spotted
wings woken from a dream night so early
a handful of morning dew drunk from shining
leaves of grass and a few hours that sounded like deep bells
in a village between non-specified mountains
where people live somewhere on earth harvest leaks and onions
in the crevices apples in an orchard and trees blossom
grapes burst for fermenting in stainless steel barrels
soon tantalize a nose the palate then
slide over the tongue as a foretaste of who tonight
in a few hours prelude to once more (a day)

[3]

is a country of kingfishers revealed in the window
then frost flowers crackle on warm breath towards lips
move like memories, loosened hair past clouds
paths not visited by spotted butterflies or the wind
a house the brushwood rainwater frozen in a roadside verge
earth vanishes under a white glittering expanse
wrapped in rays of light the same clouds sketch
again some mist past the chilly morning
flakes spring into the light an arching
of horizons lets shadows finger by finger
glide past trees wakeup repeat oneself
word for word a breathing into (a day)

(translation: Donald Gardner)

 
 


*

an angel crosses street meets a man
vanishes round the corner
when the angel and the man
have seen each other at least

appears on the scene the shining of eyes
a frenzied quest for downcast eyelids or
scraping up words off the floor shards of
an unfinished conversation until further enquiry
in imperfect tense as long as you live
and give way and give way
vanish at a blink of an eye

or a word from a maze of surrender
to what is promising or –
at any rate – available

fully conscious body
adrift

(translation: Donald Gardner)

 
 


who put on my shoes

[1 ]
 
there look at those wild-strawberry leaves purring a little
cat between thorns where a tree shakes its swaying antlers
by skeletal islands dry-as-dust wind
 
swift cuts a tail into two points punt drifts
riverbanks to my right-as-rain roses on hairpin legs
toes with thoughts and tongue in cheek clacking
 
the buds burst out of their husks happy to be alive I am
daybreak lilac when its bursting spray allows
and birch bark curls dance in wind

[2]

grass verges the edge of a field in marram grass peeled
gooseberries clover there leafage theft leaves its trees autumnal
a leggy horse runs in circles like a daft thing dances
 
through parched fields pulls out plough and root
drowns where boat strikes land with sail mast
along the path spotted woodpeckers wave for fourteen years
 
I wept come now come then stubbled morning
as we arrive at snowdrops lady’s mantle meadows
water green lilies whitish pearling earth

[3]

crazy about figs and lilies birds dipping
in a lake where sunlight blazes and screeching wind consumes earth
with rapidly scooped paper lightning-quick swept-up clouds
 
airy meadows white cut I came over light hills
and met with death who put on my shoes
in spring frost I walked off on bare feet
 
among evergreen pine groves through mudflats
waded through the tide to the sea bellying to my calves
remnants from ice aged wrinkled branch crackling
 
flower its buds letters bursting open seize the day
the night and endless waterways gleaming ribbons
through fields with nettles at my feet

[4]

that morning hoar frost so buds and buds the milky white sun
on roof tiles dancing rain along free ranging field path
caressed head and cheekbone olive branches
 
cradle ash tree branches then I leap with eiderdown out of bed
drink magnified water squamous dream bits
lost on air float down a path where coltsfoot hops
 
with trotting hoof prints I plant midnight feet
in the pale grey field covered with powdery snow
beside little duckweed boats adrift on the mire

[5]

with pomegranate leaves their scarlet hairs
I see loosestrife rooting through fields
weeds cuttings of horsetails a land full of may
 
moisten earth to sow spring ask mountains the time
not to be spun fine pale yellow plumed thistles not to come too close
pods float in ditches reflect white elderberry sprays
 
a smell wrapped in jasmine hats lost on air
speckled mossy green climb with daisy stalks
ladders along hair pupating into peacock butterflies

[6]

as if I could hear light falling through walls in a village
of trees reveal themselves an entire road close by
blossoming I entrusted water lilies and lotus
 
blindly to water in blazing sunlight first tines
follow limbs driven by wind directions ships
of bark murmuring pebbles in the beck roll slowly
 
towards dune rumbling past hovels grief charmed early floored
marsh flowers of hand-shaped parted leaves
I weave starry wreaths calyxes to drink from

[7]

in knuckles little daggers of burning larch needles
always stab red staggered tortoiseshells springing where
hogweed grows beside pale birch bark bees zoom
 
the moon its antics see flagellates springing nightingale
then I eat belladonna slimy frogs legs hop
in curling beck between the script of tiny scots pines
 
bellowing sea joy billowing honey streams of cotton grass
bones of verge grass batter against a hill beacons
in the distance ships understand mirroring each other to shards

(translation: Donald Gardner)

 
 

reviews


Piet Gerbrandy: A skinrock of water
De Groene Amsterdammer, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 31 October 2012

in knuckles little daggers of burning larch needles
always stab red staggered tortoiseshells springing where
hogweed grows beside pale birch bark bees zoom
 
the moon its antics see flagellates springing nightingale
then I eat belladonna slimy frogs legs hop
in curling beck between the script of tiny scots pines
 
bellowing sea joy billowing honey streams of cotton grass
bones of verge grass batter against a hill beacons
in the distance ships understand mirroring each other to shards

When looking at an impressionistic painting from a certain distance, one undergoes an explosion of color which still can be interpreted as a representation of reality. The painter employs a kind of fragmentation in order to create the impression of a larger whole. When you observe the canvas up close, you only see little dots, loose elements of which you scarcely can imagine that they may belong to a coherent unity. It is strangely paradoxical that so much technique is required in order to approach nature.

Rozalie Hirs (1965), also a prolific composer with a background in chemical engineering, is a poet who likes to reveal how her work comes about. Instead of merging splinters into a natural whole, she breaks unities down to sparkling shards. What remains is often a stuttering, yet not that of a desperate poet who is not able to word the unsayable. Hirs rather tries joyfully to factorize the sayable. Her poetry is contructed through and through, while her starting point often is an experience of the senses, reminding of the early Dutch poet Herman Gorter. She writes sensitive verses that ideosyncatically strive for a balance between romanticism and mathematics.

An important motif in gestamelde werken is the dawn of a new day, waking up to open your eyes for the light. In the first poem, the eyes set off into the morning like butterflies:

flying eyes with springy wings lights shed
on a map sketched in hands flaming wide-awake

In subsequent lines, poppies and cornflowers bloom and dreams are compared with silkworms that go to meet a sun in love. What they spin, however, is not silk but language. As soon as you try to see what it says on the level of words and word groups, you get lost, but if you read the poem out loud a few times, a convincing whole emerges, ‘for just a moment a touch/ of unfolding wings towards what is.’

The second series involves an intriguing process of dismantling and repeated assembly. The material is given by the opening poem.

it wants and will you against that tree there
look away from your stem blossoming pearls
wettest bath of seeds drink pastures
seven streams along the tabletop at once
meadowing our hands into a daredevil stairwell

Hirs makes groups of words and sentences flow into one another in such a way that a polysemous stream of language arises. Some lines further on, the human figure is strikingly described as a ‘skin rock of water’. We are at once solid and fluid. The same holds for the poems, thorough constructions that are as ungraspable as water.

NRC Boekenbijlage, The Netherlands, 4 January 2013

[…]

Hirs likes to go all the way, and thereby reaches for the highest points. She is a composer as well. Her best poems ‘sing’ and have a forceful melody. Ever since her debut collection from 1998, her development can be traced clearly.

If the poems in Locus (1998) and Logos (2002) seemed traditional when taken by themselves, already the second collection was conceptually organized. Logos is a through-composed opus about the human body. In reading poem by poem, you can escape the concept, but on the middle pages it is clear as daylight what the poet’s intentions are. There, a skinned body points to two- or three-letter codes referring to the alphabetically ordered poems in the collection. Here, I think, Hirs made use of the constructive achievements of her education in chemical technology and composition. It was the first impulse for three subsequent volumes of poetry of ideas. In [Speling] (2005) the concept was still very modest. On the first 39 pages, the poems grow, more or less regularly, one line at a time. Then the system falters, and finally the lines fall apart all across ten pages. In Geluksbrenger (2008) Rozalie Hirs made further strides towards disintegration, especially syntactically. Her poetry did no longer obey linguistic laws. Her lines escape the rules of language and started even to swarm about guided by the typesetter’s hand.

Gestamelde werken, too, finds Hirs toying with the rules of communicative language. Rather than in proclamation her message is in sound and the atmosphere that is evoked thereby. […] A happy example of that is offered by one of the shortest poems in the collection. […] In her longer poems, Hirs constructs such atmospheres in no less sonorous ways. […] Hirs’s poetry intrigues me. Her stammering may be constructed, most of all she seems to be out on an investigation. And her investigations are a poetic adventure. For readers who are also curious.

RozalieHirs: gestamelde werken (ontwerp & foto: Michaël Snitker)

 

digital poetry – sightbook of work in stuttering

The Belgian duo, Cox & Grusenmeyer, designers and visual artists, created six online personas for six poems or cycles from the collection gestamelde werken (Amsterdam: Querido, 2012), by Rozalie Hirs. They let these six characters – or alter egos, as they call them – come alive on six different social networks. In choosing the poems, Cox & Grusenmeyer took their own reading experience as a starting point, their encounter with the poem in question. What does the poem speak of? How does it appear? How does it show itself? Does it speak slowly, quickly, loudly, in a singsong, awkwardly? Is it neutral in tone, aggressive, longing, lyrical or seductive? They chose very diverse poems or cycles and characterized their encounter with the poetry in catchwords. That way, they developed six very different characters for the poems, characters they made come alive on the social network that seemed to fit the character most closely. By way of the links below you can visit the characters and become part of Cox & Grusenmeyer’s reading experience.

The words shown in the images, photos, video and graphics are quotes from the poems by Rozalie Hirs. These concern the following six poems or cycles, all of which appear integrally: ‘lieve lente lacht’ (p.33), ‘vier de stameling’ (pp.52-53), ‘who put on my shoes’ 1-7 (‘die deed mijn schoenen aan’ 1-7; pp.54-61; English translation: Donald Gardner), ‘a no’ (‘een nee’; p.31; English translation: Donald Gardner), ‘long at present longing’ 0-6 (pp.16-23), ‘duizend en één pixel’ (p.36). The project received financial support from the Netherlands Foundation for Literature.
