Ad Astra Project - 9 - Kenneth Irby

Ken Irby
Ken Irby (1936 - ) Ken Irby is a Kansas poet who practices projective verse, a form based on physical acts of speechmaking rather than British poetics. Irby was not a student at Black Mountain, but he has had contacts with Black Mountain poets throughout his career. This direction in American writing connects to experimental forms now loosely called Language poetry. Ed Dorn, a former visiting professor at the University of Kansas, was a student of Olson and close friend of Irby. In this elegy, written at Dorns death, Irby displaces his emotional grief with an image of farm animals in a bare pasture. The titles season is near solstice, the darkest, most mysterious time of year, and also a time when losses are most sharply seen. This poem begins with the animals viewed at a distance, as though they are almost beyond sight. The narrator sees them skewed by the distanceand also perhaps by griefso that they appear to be performing on hind legs, a real dog and pony show. Irby sets this familiar term amongst the more bizarre appearances of the domestic animals. Just when it seems he might explain himself and the soundless musicians at the window, he changes direction. He shifts from visual images to soundsthe rhyme between cray and they. The second section also shifts from animals to plants: hedge apples (or osage oranges) at pasture boundary and night winter cray bushes. Rather than resolve the poem with a resounding click, he opens it up to new questions. Education: Kenneth Irby, born in Bowie, Texas, was raised in Ft. Scott, Kansas. He received an A.M. from Harvard University and M.L.S. from the University of California-Berkeley. Career: Irby is an English professor at the University of Kansas. He has been a Visiting Professor at the University of Copenhagen. He has awards from the Fund for Poetry and the Gertrude Stein Awards in Innovative American Poetry. His books include: Studies (First Intensity Press 2001), Ridge to Ridge (Other Wind Press 2001), Call Steps (Station Hill Press 1992), A Set (Tansy 1983), Orexis (Station Hill Press 1981), Catalpa (Tansy 1972), To Max Douglas (Tansy 1971). ------------------------------------- 2007 Denise Low, AAPP1 Studies: Cuts, Shots Takes, Kenneth Irby, 2001.
