Pressestimmen

Instead of starting with a blank page, poet Austin Kleon grabs the New York Times and a permanent marker and eliminates the words he doesn’t need. (NPR's Morning Edition)

One can imagine taking up blackout poetry on their daily bus commute in place of sudoku or the crossword puzzle. (Toronto's National Post)

Sort of like Michelangelo carving away the marble that imprisoned what he saw within. (Cleveland Plain Dealer)

“…a kind of Rorschach approach to reading newspapers…” (Wall Street Journal)

“[A] sense of play infuses the poems—short pieces that touch on first sex and outer space, in a voice that slips from funny to elegiac…” (Austin Chronicle)

“…hidden bits of Zen lite that occasionally bump up against brilliance….Kleon manages to turn the paper of record into visually stark nuggets of poetry and wit. All the Muse That’s Fit to Print, you might say.” (Texas Monthly)

“Highbrow/brilliant…It’s better than it sounds.” (New York magazine)

“Part ‘writing with constrictions,’ part happy accident, part found art, part design challenge...the collection...gives a well rounded and consistent view into a guy most of us would want to buy a beer.” (Radio Exile)

“[The poems] resurrect the newspaper when everyone else is declaring it dead…like a cross between magnetic refrigerator poetry and enigmatic ransom notes, funny and zen-like, collages of found art…” (The New Yorker)

“Some of the results are hilarious, some are profound and even unsettling, but they are never bland or boring.” (The Ephemerist)

Kurzbeschreibung

5.0 von 5 Sternen Approachable poetry--a lot of fun! 30. April 2010
Von Scott Bowen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is more than a book of poetry. Austin gives some of the history behind this style of "found art" and shares what he's learned since he started. He doesn't present himself as a master of the art and a hugely profound philosopher/poet. In fact, he gives a "How-to" and encourages the reader to pick up a newspaper and marker and explore it for him/herself, and at the end he shares a few Blackout Poems from other people.

Some of the poems are funny, some are profound, but they all will make you look at any block of text in a different way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Newspapers are Still Good for Something 19. Mai 2010
Von Stephanie Snyder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
It sounds easy enough. Take a newspaper article and block off a section two columns wide by 5 or 6 inches long. Look for words or phrases that speak to you and draw a box around them. Flesh out your poem using other words from the article and then "blackout" the remainder. Austin Kleon did not invent this method but he did take it and run with it. At first read the poems seem simple. But after you get out your own marker and try your hand at it, you realize how talented this guy really is. Some are funny, some are sentimental, all are thought provoking. Buy the book. Also buy a newspaper and a sharpie. Go ahead, blackout a poem. You know you want to.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very creative 4. Mai 2010
Von Kyle Steed - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I got the chance to meet Austin Kleon while in Austin, TX for SXSW 2010. He's a really down to earth guy and incredibly talented. I actually was able to purchase the book in advance there as well. I've enjoyed just thumbing through the book and reading different poems at random. Some are very linear and easy to read, and some you almost have to guess where the next line leads. But I think that's part of the fun and creativity about it. I recommend this book to anyone interested in not only poetry, but art as well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Best addition to my library in a LONG time 6. Mai 2010
Von Dominic N. Hackley - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Some inspirational, some motivational, some uppers, some downers and some out-right hilarious - Kleon's Newspaper Blackout poems runs the gamut of human emotion in an aesthetically pleasing, softcover compilation of page-turning, proverb-like poems. A must buy for anyone who can read the English language! NOTE: Make sure to purchase a few because you will be giving and gifting them away to friends, enemies and stragners alike.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Very creative idea, visually appealing, poor poetry 19. Oktober 2013
Von Lior Boogtus - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
To be expected, for sure, the random associations and blackouts make for subpar poetry. This is somewhat compensated for the originality, novelty, and the nice visuals, but these wear off partway into the book and all you're left with is rather weak poems that are mostly abstruse
