In the beginning - Poetry Reading - Lucille Clifton - Brief Article
Christian Century Jan 30, 2002 by Peggy Rosenthal THE FIRST THING that strikes us about Lucille Clifton's poetry is what is missing: capitalization, punctuation, long and plentiful lines. We see a poetry so pared down that its spaces take on substance, become a shaping presence as much as the words themselves. "adam and eve": without capital letters, our human ancestors look humbled, on the same plane as everything else in the poem's world. It's the world at the start of Genesis, the title indicates. And specifically, we can tell from the opening stanza, we humans are in the second creation account, where God gives Adam the power to name all the animals and birds.

  • Lucille Clifton 1936–
    American poet, autobiographer, and author of children's books.
    A prolific author whose works frequently concern the well-being of black families and youths, Clifton is highly praised for her strong affirmation of African-American culture. She is one of the most accessible poets to emerge from the generation of writers influenced in the late 1960s and early 1970s by the Black Arts Movement's belief that artistic expression would assist Black Americans both in personal and social achievements. Her reputation has increased steadily since her first book of poems appeared. Her poems explore the African American experience, particularly the role and influence of matriarchy, providing strong, diverse social role models. Characteristically, and at her best, Clifton creates technically accomplished poems that use neither punctuation nor capitalization. Her strong and purposeful voice is expressed through common language, thus making her poetry available to a wide audience.

    Some of us are very, very fortunate: we are priviliged to at least once in our lifetime meet a woman who is so powerful, so full of love and giving, that she changes the course of our lives, and always for the better. I have been many times blessed in having met a number of such women. The first was Lucille Clifton. She was my Senior Thesis Advisor during the short time she was at the University of California - Santa Cruz and she gave me the gift of trusting my woman's voice as a writer. She taught me that writer's are "Ordinary Women" indeed, which meant I could join that elite if I so chose, and that as "Ordinary Women" we have powerful things to say about the world we live in. She taught me writers are not Goddesses that look down upon mere mortals such as myself, yet rather are warm, loving, caring women willing and eager to share their knowledge of the craft of writing. At least Lucille Clifton is. There is nothing, really, that I can say about Lucille Clifton that her poetry cannot say better. I am including on the following pages the poems from good woman: poems and a memoir 1969-1980 which affected me most profoundly, with brief comments regarding my response to them. Understand, please, these are only my interpretations of her poems; it may not be at all what she intended or what you perceive of them, but then, that is one of the magic wonders of poetry: we see each poem in our individual, unique way. I simply hope you are struck with the beauty and power of Lucille Clifton's poems as I have been.

    56. The Poem In Lucille Clifton - P.A.W. Print - Philadelphia Arts Writers
    I felt in awe of lucille clifton s perfect balance of ordinariness and magnificence. In her core, she was human, an emotional being with flaws.
    On Seeing the Poem in Lucille Clifton
    by Audrey Wilz
    Lucille Clifton. photo Courtesy of AWP At the time, I listened intently on every word she said. Her bits of wit and wisdom rained down on my eager mind. Now, months later, I don't remember a word she said. I felt in awe of Lucille Clifton's perfect balance of ordinariness and magnificence. In her core, she was human, an emotional being with flaws. But, as she read aloud her poetry, she transcended, and she rose above herself. Reading her poetry aloud, Ms. Clifton took her already brilliant work and elevated it to exquisite artistry. I can't quite remember how she looked. But, I can immediately remember her shoes. She wore old lady shoes. I suppose she did that because, she was, indeed, an old lady. But, it seemed funny that a world-renowned poet should be wearing black leather slip on shoes with socks. It seemed too simple, too practical, and too common-day for the feet that held up a woman of such distinction. Yet, she wore them with pride, and somehow, that pride made the shoes striking. I remember my heart throbbing while she spoke candidly about deaths of family members whom she mourned. I remember her tone as she spoke about the illnesses that attacked her own body. I don't remember who died, and what they had, or even what illnesses she had, but, the tone of her voice revealed every detail about the conditions of human suffering.

    An acclaimed poet will this week receive the Ruth Lilly Poetry Prize for her work, which includes an award-wining series about a boy who lives in a housing project
    By Janice Harayda When Lucille Clifton was growing up, her father told her stories about her African great-great-grandmother who was forced into slavery. A sharp awareness of her heritage stayed with her and inspired a memoir, Generations (Random House, 1976). But Clifton may be best known as the author of an award-winning picture-book series that uses rhymed iambic pentameter to tell the story of a sensitive boy named Everett Anderson, who lives in a housing project with his mother. “I wanted to write about a little boy who was poor and someone who, although he had no things, was not poor in spirit,” she said in an interview with Mickey Pearlman in Listen to Their Voices (Houghton Mifflin, 1993). “He’s full of love, and he and his mother live well together.”

    Lucille Clifton *Lucille Clifton was born on this date in 1936. She is an African-American poet and author.
    Born and raised in Depew New York (a suburb of Buffalo), Lucille Sayles Clifton attended Howard University for three years and graduated from the State University of New York College at Fredonia (near Buffalo) in 1955. In 1958 she married Fred James Clifton. She worked as a claims clerk in the New York State Division of Employment, Buffalo for two years and as literature assistant in the Office of Education in Washington, D.C. (1960-1971). In 1969, Cifton's first book, a collection of poetry entitled “Good Times,” was published and The New York Times reported it as one of the year's 10 best books.
    From 1971 to 1974 she was poet-in-residence at Coppin State College, and in 1979 she was named Poet Laureate of the state of Maryland. During this time she produced two further books of poetry, “Good News About the Earth” (1972) and “An Ordinary Woman” (1974). From 1982 to 1983 she was visiting writer at Columbia University School of the Arts and at George Washington University. Afterwards she taught literature and creative writing at the University of California at Santa Cruz (1985) and then at St.Mary's College of Maryland. Clifton's later poetry collections include “Next: New Poems” (1987), “Quilting: Poems 1987-1990” (1991), and “The Terrible Stories” (1996). “Generations: A Memoir” (1976) is a prose piece celebrating her origins, and “Good Woman: Poems and a Memoir: 1969-1980” (1987) collects some of her previously published verse.
