Overview
Winner:
12th New Hampshire Literary Award, Poetry
In this series of poems responding to Johann Sebastian Bach s spectacular Goldberg Variations, New Hampshire State Poet Laureate Alice B. Fogel has paid homage to a 274-year-old masterpiece and, with the theme of spirit and embodiment that music and life itself evoke, has rendered from it a luminous new interpretation. Bach created the Goldbergs 32 sections using nearly all the styles of western European music at the time; Fogel responds in kind with a range of contemporary poetic styles, including narrative, lyric, and experimental, all confined within the 32-line structure she has borrowed from the composer s 32-bar format.Intervalmimics the baroque effects of overlapping melodies and harmonies by layering sound, syntax, and sense in multiple voices exploring self, identity, and being. In capturing the essence of this iconic masterpiece, through these poems Fogel has created her own music."
