At once an extension of and a departure from his previous explorations of family and art, Craig Morgan Teicher's The Trembling Answers delves boldly into the tangled realms of fatherhood, marriage, and poetry. Dealing with the day-to-day of family life--including the alert anxiety and remarkable beauty of caring for a child with severe cerebral palsy--these personal narratives brightly illuminate the relationship that exists between poetry and a life fiercely lived. Video Baby Monitor A watched pot never boils, so perhaps a son on a screen never dies. Like the eyes of a painting this image follows wherever we move. Surveillance is love, love is every moment the last. Barely moving picture, memory of now, sleep, be still, be safe. Night is long, life short. I cover you with my eyes. Craig Morgan Teicher: is the author of four books of poetry and fiction and the editor of Once and For All: The Best of Delmore Schwartz (2016). A prolific critic and reviewer of poetry, he has worked at Publishers Weekly for 10 years, where he is currently Director of Digital Operations. He teaches at New York University and Princeton University.
Social psychiatry is concerned with the effects of the social environment on the mental health of the individual, and with the effects of the person with a mental disorder on his/her social environment. The field encompasses social interventions, prevention and the promotion of mental health. This new edition of "Principles of Social Psychiatry" provides a broad overview of current thinking in this expanding field and will be a source of ideas both in research and for the management of mental disorder. It opens by putting social psychiatry in perspective, within both psychiatry and the social sciences. From the patient's perspective, the outermost influence is the culture in which they live, followed by their neighbourhoods, workmates, and friends and family. The next section considers how we conceptualize the social world, from families through cultural identify and ethnicity to the wider social environment.
The book reviews the social determinants and consequences of the major mental disorders before considering interventions and service delivery at various levels to mitigate these. It closes with a review of the social impact of mental illness around the world and a thoughtful essay by the editors on the current state of social psychiatry and where it is heading.
Psychiatry is in the process of rediscovering its roots. It seemed as if the long history of interest in the impact of society on the rates and course of serious mental illness had been forgotten, overtaken by the advances of neuroscience and genetics. However, as our knowledge of physiological and genetic processes improves it becomes increasingly clear that social conditions and experiences over the life course are crucial to achieving a full understanding. Old controversies are giving way to genuinely integrated models in which social, psychological and biological factors interact over time, culminating in the onset of psychosis. This book reviews these issues from an international perspective, laying the foundations for a new understanding of the psychotic disorders, with profound implications for health policy and clinical practice. It should be read by all members of the mental health team and those responsible for service organization and management.
Winner of the 2007 Colorado Prize for Poetry "As soon as I had read the book, I wanted immediately to read it again, for its pebble that is also a planet, for its one-celled organism that, to regenerate the world, ?sings the world's last song.?" ?Paul Hoover "Teicher is one of our new poets."?Richard Howard Craig Morgan Teicher's poems have appeared in many publications, including the Yale Review, Boston Review, Jubilat, Pleiades, and New England Review.
Timeless yet timely and hopeful with a dark underbelly, these fables revive a tradition running from Aesop to W.S. Merwin. With a poet's mastery, Craig Morgan Teicher creates strange worlds populated by animals fated for disaster and the people who interact with them, or simply act like them, including a very sad boy who wishes he had been raised by wolves. There are also a handful of badly behaving gods, a talking tree, and a shape-shifting room.
Craig Morgan Teicher is poetry editor of "Publishers Weekly" and
a vice president on the board of the National Book Critics Circle.
He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
"I'm a fan of country music. Just like the guy who has nothing to do with this industry ," says Craig Morgan, "Believe that." No convincing is necessary. When Morgan talks about country music, he's a human exclamation point. Whether referring to a track from his new album or praising the talents of a fellow songwriter or artist, melody and lyrics seem to burble up from inside and take him over. He bursts into song, obviously reveling in the vocal hitches and twang of an old-time country tune; lovingly crooning a tender ballad or joyfully ka-chunking out the rhythm of a merry toe-tapper. No wonder he calls his album I Love It.
"The brilliance of these poems is how they renovate not only poetry but language, without pretense, without the declaration of war, without summoning the ghost of Shakespeare in any but the most charming ways. I could live in the mind of these poems and never want to leave." --D.A. Powell
"With these refreshingly human, formal, playful, and heart-wrenching poems, Teicher not only proves that form may be adapted to fit a contemporary idiom, but that he's built his own 'Life Studies' within the confessional tradition, one which pushes against his predecessors' self-aware and often selfish use of confession, successfully re-enervating the sense of a real life behind the voice." --"The Rumpus"
One of "Coldfront"'s Top Ten Poetry Books of 2012, "To Keep Love Blurry," "open s] a world of poems that ask obsessive questions of choice and consequence. These are poems of an interior that reimagines the past, pays tribute to predecessors, and above all, values frankness above artifice...The poems are severe in their honesty, which makes them riveting." --"Coldfront"
"To Keep Love Blurry" is about the charged and troubled spaces
between intimately connected people: husbands and wives, parents
and children, writers and readers. These poems include sonnets,
villanelles, and long poems, as well as two poetic prose pieces,
tracing how a son becomes a husband and then a father. Robert
Lowell is a constant figure throughout the book, which borrows its
four-part structure from that poet's seminal "Life Studies."
Craig Morgan Teicher won the Colorado Prize for Poetry. He is
poetry reviews editor for "Publishers Weekly "magazine and served
as vice president on the board of the National Book Critics
