Peripheral light - John Kinsella - Poems by book - Australian Poetry Library

www.poetrylibrary.edu.au [cached]

John Kinsella was born in Western Australia in 1963.
In 1996 he received a Young Australian Creative Fellowship, and was awarded a two-year Fellowship from the Literature Fund of the Australia Council. He was made an artist By-Fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge, in 1997 and a Fellow in 1998. He is the founding editor of the literary magazine Salt, was co-editor of Stand (United Kingdom), and is international editor of The Kenyon Review (United States). He is Professor of English at Kenyon College in the United States, and Adjunct Professor of Literature at Edith Cowan University. A country man, Kinsella is most at ease with natural emblems: they mediate mortality for him, as here, in 'The Myth of the Grave': The 'pair of painted quails' are waiting their turn in the 'shoebox flat.' Ashes do not rest easily in Kinsella, for whom the dead are not dead, but alive. There aren't any natural vistas among Kinsella's many landscapes; they are all haunted, part of the undertow, as at 'Skippy Rock, Augusta': 'dusk-spray, undertow/ of night.' A sleepless soul, akin to Wordsworth's Thomas Chatterton in 'Resolution and Independence,' Kinsella is addicted to red chili, rather in the way that D H Lawrence sought out medlars and sorb-apples. The Lawrence of Birds, Beasts, and Flowers is never far from Kinsella: both poets long for Persephone. Only John Kinsella could transcendentalize a chili pepper. This uncanny piece is unlike anything else I know, even by Kinsella, or perhaps I should call it an unique ascension. Kinsella, in his country youth, seems to have shot so many predatory parrots that their souls will haunt his way into Purgatory. Most poems by Kinsella are secular 'prayers of deflection,' since he knows the truth of Emerson's 'Self-Reliance': As men's prayers are a disease of the will, so are their creeds a disease of the intellect. One sees why Kinsella testifies that Frost's 'Birches' have held him since first reading, offering a vision of 'both going and coming back.' Everything in Kinsella's nature is 'Ceremony. Massacre. Survey.' That is a strong burden for pastoral, but without it Kinsella's poetry would not take on its real importance. He is a celebrant of the rueful Sublime, exemplifying both Ruskin's strictures against the Pathetic Fallacy and Ruskin's contradictory realization that a poet is a person 'to whom things speak.' That is the rugged achievement of 'Bluff Knoll Sublimity' and 'Of Writing at Wheatlands,' two of Kinsella's finest. Kinsella, whether he sojourns in Cambridgeshire or in Ohio, always finds himself going home to the wheatlands and pastures of his childhood, returns remarkably free both from nostalgia and from guilt. The shadows of the blue heron return us to hawk-shadow in Kinsella. Yeats played with the same shamanism, yet Kinsella wins his gamble in this verse/prose poem, dangerous as it is to go too near to Yeats. So strong is the poem's conclusion that I am moved to call this the true voice of John Kinsella: Whatever his stoic skepticism, Kinsella knows himself to live willingly on faultlines. A poet of deep subjectivity, like Stevens and Ashbery, Kinsella understands that 'confessional' poetry leaves both poet and reader more opaque than before, whereas total revelation, of self and of other, emerges from difficult art, as here in 'Tenebrae': This is the quintessence of John Kinsella, equally populist and elitist. I used to think of John Kinsella as being one of the poets who unfolded, like Hart Crane, rather than one of those who developed, like Wallace Stevens. In the last five to seven years, Kinsella has developed extraordinarily. Kinsella is in movement towards becoming a very different poet, able to balance personal loss with at least the possibility of a more universal art, founded upon rejection of an earlier imaginative idealism: Poetry is a crematorium. Love doesn't need it. As a final text here, indicating the ongoing Kinsella, I take the very ambitious sixteen-part sequence 'Field Notes from Mount Bakewell,' which is a kind of holy mountain for Kinsella. Upon his high places, Kinsella finds, not apotheosis, but ecological ruin: Against this, there are predatory intimations that are ancient: locusts, who have tracked Kinsella throughout his work. At this midpoint of a remarkable career, Kinsella needs to be read in something of his prodigal profusion, the generous scattering of his gifts.

John Kinsella (1963 - )
John Kinsella, Cambridge UK, 1990s, photo by John Tranter John Kinsella, Cambridge UK, 1990s, photo by John Tranter John Kinsella fl. 1989- John Vincent Kinsella was born in Perth in 1963. His father Ron was a motor mechanic who later became a farm manager near Geraldton, while his mother Wendy taught piano to put herself through university, eventually becoming a secondary school English teacher. Kinsella grew up in suburban Perth, on the family farm, 'Wheatlands,' in the Avon Valley north-east of Perth, and Geraldton, where he completed high school. Because of his early literary interests and high intelligence, he was subjected to bullying while at school, which saw him withdraw further into books, reading and writing. After school, he enrolled in a law degree at the University of Western Australia, switching after a year to study history before dropping out of university altogether. Kinsella then travelled and corresponded with writers around the world, meeting Dorothy Hewett and Robert Adamson in Sydney in 1981. n his 2006 memoir,Fast, Loose Beginnings: A Memoir of Intoxications, Kinsella details his struggles with drug and alcohol abuse in his youth. In 1989, encouraged by his mother, Kinsella published his first collection of poems under his own name,Night Parrots, with the Fremantle Arts Centre Press, beginning a long association with that publisher. Through the 1990s and 2000s, Kinsella established himself both as an extraordinarily prolific poet, publishing more than thirty collections, and as an increasingly important figure in contemporary Australian poetry, both through his own poetic output, and his multifarious roles as an editor, publisher, and critic. From 1990-2004, he edited and published a literary journal,Salt, which in 2007 was revived asSalt Magazine. This journal and other works were produced under Kinsella's publishing imprints Folio and Folio/Salt; in 2000, with Chris Hailton-Emery formerly of Cambridge University Press, he established a specialist independent poetry publishing house, Salt Publishing. Since 1998, Kinsella has been a fellow of Churchill College, Cambridge University. He has also been Professor of English at Kenyon College in Ohio, USA, and Adjunct Professor at Edith Cowan University in Western Australia. Kinsella is known for his facility in both lyrical and experimental poetry traditions.
