Irene Willis on A.K. Richards’s Pearls from Tears

Wednesday, December 30th, 2009

To those who read or even glance at our poetry pages, I hope you will take the time to read carefully the essay, “Pearls from Tears” by Arlene Kramer Richards. It is simply magnificent, in its choice of poems, the excerpts from critics and translators, the information about the Yiddish language, her own commentary about the psychoanalytic connection and, most wonderfully, the sharing of her personal experience. We are most grateful for this addition to the ongoing conversation about poetry.

The “Miracle” of Fantasy “on 34th Street”

Miracleon34thStreet

Published in the PANY Bulletin Fall, 2009

For the past few winters, my teaching schedule has me reading Anna Freud’s monograph, The Ego and the Mechanisms of Defense at around the same time that I come  across the Christmas classic, Miracle on 34th Street. One wouldn’t think that they have much in common, but each year I am re-reminded of passages in the book that come to life in the film. (more…)
