The Bond of Time : An Epic Love Poem

First published in a limited edition in 1985, John Pule's epic love poem "The Bond of Time" is now available in a new edition from Canterbury University Press.
'A net of words across the Pacific ... The Bond of Time is a vast, surreal cornucopia of images stretching over 88 ages, a non-lineal narrative, bursting at its seams into every successive five-lined unrhymed stanza, each self-contained but caught in the net of Pule's ravishing imagination. [...] It seems obvious that while a human relationship is signaled from the very beginning and pursued through dark and light along the poem's entire trajectory, no one person could be the sole object of the poet's attention and passion - this is a love letter to a sea of islands, to Niue and the entire Pacific.' - From the Introduction by Jeffrey Paparoa Holman

Leonard Cohen, one of the most admired performers of the last half century, has had a stranger-than-fiction, roller-coaster ride of a life. Now, for the first time, he tells his story in his own words, via more than 50 interviews conducted worldwide between 1966 and 2012. In Leonard Cohen on Leonard Cohen—which includes a foreword by singer Suzanne Vega and eight pages of rarely seen photos—the artist talks about “Bird on the Wire,” “Hallelujah,” and his other classic songs. He candidly discusses his famous romances, his years in a Zen monastery, his ill-fated collaboration with producer Phil Spector, his long battle with depression, and much more. You’ll find interviews that first appeared in the New York Times and Rolling Stone, but also material that has not previously been printed in English. A few have not been available until now in any format, including many illuminating reminiscences that contributors supplied specifically for this definitive anthology.

A Brazilian proverb states, “Those who leave will take longing on their journeys.” However, translating saudade with “longing” doesn’t do the term justice. Olaf Heine’s photographs convey impressions that are hard to put into words. Since 2010, the renowned portrait and fashion photographer has captured the soul of Brazil. Presenting the land of Carnival and Copacabana in black-and-white is not as paradoxical as it might first seem. Heine’s photographs are as deeply melancholic as they are sensual. With a keen sense for shapes and textures, he also exemplifies Oscar Niemeyer’s words: “The whole universe is made of curves.” These curves appear in architecture and human bodies, and also permeate the Brazilian lifestyle. From the intensity of its passions to the lightness of its shapes, Olaf Heine portrays a fascinating country in all its diversity and beauty.

Robert Lebeck excels at capturing complex stories in deceptively simple compositions. Internationally recognized for his photojournalism and portraits of figures in the arts and culture, he is a master of interacting with his subjects in a playful manner that encourages them to open up—revealing both the public figure and the hidden private emotions. While being candid, he never sought to shock or make his subjects uncomfortable—in doing so, he earned their lasting trust. They in turn granted him images that are iconic and highly personal like his portraits of personalities such as Willy Brandt, Alfred Hitchcock, or Maria Callas. It might be said that it is hard to define Lebeck’s style. He’s not known for stylistic shortcuts or repetitive gimmicks. Perhaps his greatest accomplishment is the unique and careful approach he brings to all of his work.
