The News free pdf "The News" is more than a venture into art by someone prominent in another field. In these poems, an unconventional subject for poetry is dealt with from within, by a real poet. Robert PinskyAs a nationally recognized correspondent and anchor for the PBS "NewsHour, " Jeffrey Brown has reported on important events around the world. In his debut poetry collection, "The News, " he re-imagines and re-tells his experiences through poems that explore stories he s covered, places he s gone, people he s met, the thrills and doubts of his profession, as well as the profound intimacy of family. In these pages we hear the narratives of artists, inmates, cadets, and survivors of the world s tragedies, as Brown conveys both suffering and triumph with a music that pays tribute to the multitude of human voices, opening his own life and expression for public viewing. Full of self-examination, brave honesty, and wry humor, "The News" captures not what s on one side of the lens but all that surrounds it.In his introduction to the book, former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky writes, "Jeffrey Brown in this book apprehends some specific realities: the news as a medium and the news that is the medium s object. Brown s poetry examines that material in a new way, giving it a fresh, urgent form.By honoring the human voice, Jeffrey Brown has brought a remarkable, fresh kind of attention to these questions of identity and presence, delusion and awarenessin the specific realm of television news and in life itself. "Brown s experiences before the relentless eye of the camera and within the churn and pressure of theperpetual news cycle as an Emmy Awardwinning journalist and chief arts and culture correspondent for PBS "NewsHour" shapes his strikingly forthright poems. Brown s directness is professional in origin, but he is keenly aware of and haunted by what s missing from the news, which is why he seeks 'another angle' in poetry.""Booklist"Haiti: KaciteWe, who lie, who cannot sayfor there is no good way to put thiswe are here to show the horror of your life.In Kacite they passed out purification tabletsdisplayed with pride their new latrine.A woman sweeping her dusty stepsasked to act naturally for the camerato act as though we're not heremore honest and aware than us, replied: How can I pretend that you are not here?Was that not you who spoke just now?Jeffrey Brown is the chief correspondent for arts, culture, and society at PBS "NewsHour."
