Itzhak Perlman's Broken String

release date: Apr 01, 2017
Itzhak Perlman's Broken String
2016 winner of the Helen Kay Chapbook Prize In the apocryphal story told about Yitzhak Perlman during his concert at Lincoln Center in 1995 when one of the four violin strings suddenly tore, and he proceeded to reconceive and play the entire work with three remaining strings, he said that “sometimes it is the artist’s task to find out how much music you can make with what you have left.” If ever there were a work that explores the aftermath of loss, it is this powerful and highly original collection by Jacqueline Jules. “Every life is lived on a high wire,/ strung over the treetops…//Don’t expect to feel safe.” The poet reminds us not to waste time grieving over “stolen credit cards” and a “broken car on the day of a big interview.” Reminds us how “Joy sits on a seesaw with Grief.” If it’s divinity we seek, best we gather the “stone tablets” and carry them through the wilderness of time. Consolation can be “sunlight/streaming through/serrated shapes…like fingers” that “wipe” away “tears.” —Myra Sklarew, Author of Lithuania: New & Selected Poems What plucks at the heart strings of Jacqueline Jules’ intense poems of Itzhak Perlman’s Broken String is a dialectic between faith and loss where science mediates. “Both Science and Faith insist/ nothing is random.” Grief is a squatter—an unwanted presence after friends and family leave the bereaved. The poet dares to challenge Jean-Paul Sartre on despair and suggests to the physical therapist “better to tease a tiger/ than poke a pain.” Everything connects: Emily Dickinson, vending machines, a gypsy girl with rocks in her pockets who steps into a river. This is a smart and smarting journey through the human condition. —Karren L. Alenier, author of The Anima of Paul Bowles This lovely and moving collection explores what happens when grief is chronic. After the shock of initial loss, when grief becomes a daily companion, we must learn, as Jacqueline Jules wisely writes, to find music in our crippled instruments. Like Jean-Paul Sartre, we “cross that cruel river”; like Isaac Newton, our personal math proves “we are vulnerable to falling objects.” —Kim Roberts, founding editor of Beltway Poetry Quarterly

Manna in the Morning

release date: Feb 18, 2021
Manna in the Morning
Manna in the Morning is, quite simply, a lovely book. As she revisits holy texts, Jacqueline Jules gracefully connects ancient stories with modern times, gaining insights into her own quandaries and gently suggesting paths through which all of us may traverse our conflicts and crises. Go ahead and feast on the spiritual sustenance that Manna in the Morning provides. You won''t regret it. -Erika Dreifus, author of Birthright: Poems and Quiet Americans: Stories In Manna in the Morning, poet Jacqueline Jules "stand[s] on a narrow bridge, /the width of a whisper, /connecting [yesterday to] today to tomorrow." Exploring choice and struggle in the lives of Abraham, Naomi, Noah, Jonah, Sarah, Eve, and other Biblical persons, the poet brings us back to ourselves. Jealousy and grief give way to prayer; humility and perseverance to hope. "Swirling in the fragile space/between faith and fear[, ]" she encourages us to "read beyond the transgression, /consider the whole saga." Only then do we find again the "lost . . . ability to speak to each other[, ]" the miracle of manna. -Marjorie Maddox, author of Inside Out: Poems on Writing and Reading Poems with Insider Exercises The first poem in Manna in the Morning lists the crimes of Jacob, Moses, and David: "The Bible elevates lives / marked by more than merit" writes Jacqueline Jules. She continues: "Yet unlike Twitter, the Bible / doesn''t cancel characters. We are told / to read beyond the transgression, / consider the whole saga." Jules explores contemporary faith with nuance and sensitivity, braiding together the ancient world and twenty-first century. She''s particularly interested in the roles women play in the Biblical texts and brings a lively feminist sensibility to her poems: "I''m Miriam / holding a tambourine, / dancing in the desert, grateful / for the smallest excuse / to sing." -Katherine E. Young, author of Day of the Border Guards, Poet Laureate Emerita, Arlington, Virginia
