From the first book we ever published, POETRY AFTER 9/11: AN ANTHOLOGY OF NEW YORK POETS.

THE SKEPTIC
Colette Inez

I am the free-thinker who reads Voltaire.
A photograph of Karl Marx adorns my piano.
I quote from Robert Ingersoll's "Why I Am an Agnostic."
"I doubt therefore I am" never said by Pascal,
yet I am and I doubt any interpretation
of god that doesn't also describe him as a symbolic
tribal father hurling biblical rancor at the nations.
I doubt his alleged only son as anything more than a
dissident perched in fictive heaven
among angels who sometimes fly down to earth to keep drunks
and debtors from jumping into rivers.
I doubt celestial virgins will visit the men who ate pizza
in Florida, shopping smart at discount stores.
Consigned to the zero of null, they are specks of ash alongside those they killed in the name of their divinity.
I want to put an extra "O" between G O and D, I'll pray to that: love, friends, music, books, reason and beauty.

In addition to donating, supporting refugees, and protesting, there is something else we can do from afar, in the midst of devastating violence towards Ukraine. We can read.

Discover our reading list of powerful, transcendent works to help us further understand the people experiencing violence in Ukraine, and the regime behind it.

Some of the greatest works we know today are as a result of samizdat, the “self-publishing” or underground publishing of dissenting literature, poetry, and writings during the Soviet era. Sharing ideas continues to be one of the most powerful forms of protest we have for the long-term.

'At the Bay' is currently published on its own as a novella by Melville House Publishing, as well as in reprints of 'The Garden Party & Other Stories' and other collected editions of Mansfield work.

It's also available in full online: http://digital.library.upenn.edu/women/mansfield/garden/bay.html
To celebrate 𝘛𝘩𝘦 𝘎𝘢𝘳𝘥𝘦𝘯 𝘗𝘢𝘳𝘵𝘺 & 𝘖𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳 𝘚𝘵𝘰𝘳𝘪𝘦𝘴 turning 100, we’re shining a spotlight on each of the stories in what some consider to be Katherine Mansfield’s finest collection. First up: ‘At the Bay’!

‘At the Bay’ is one of Mansfield’s longest stories - it was first published as a twelve-part serial in the London Mercury in January 1922 and is currently published by Melville House Publishing on its own as a novella (as well as in other collections of Mansfield's work of course). It charts the course of a summer’s day in a sleepy seaside village, focusing on the Burnell family and people associated with them. The setting is recognisable as Days Bay/Eastbourne, on the opposite side of the harbour to Wellington. The Burnell family, who first appeared in ‘Prelude’ published by Virginia and Leonard Woolf’s Hogarth Press in 1918, is based on Mansfield’s own family and the character of Kezia is thought to be based on Katherine herself as a child.

After finishing the story in September 1921, Mansfield wrote to her friend Dorothy Brett “It's about 60 pages. I've been at it all last night. My precious children have sat in here, playing cards. I've wandered about all sorts of places—in and out—I hope it is good. It is as good as I can do, and all my heart and soul is in it … every single bit. Oh God, I hope it gives pleasure to someone… It is so strange to bring the dead to life again. There's my Grandmother, back in her chair with her pink knitting, there stalks my uncle over the grass; I feel as I write, “You are not dead, my darlings. All is remembered. I bow down to you. I efface myself so that you may live again through me in your richness and beauty.” And one feels possessed. And then the place where it all happens. I have tried to make it as familiar to ‘you’ as it is to me. You know the marigolds? You know those pools in the rocks, you know the mouse trap on the wash-house window-sill? And too, one tries to go deep—to speak to the secret self we all have—to acknowledge that. I mustn't say any more about it.”

A few weeks ago the BBC broadcast a feature about literary works set on a single day, including ‘At the Bay.’ James Marriott, writer and host of the programme, describes ‘At the Bay’ as a personal favourite. The whole feature is great, but if you’d like to hear the section on ‘At the Bay’, it begins at 27:39 of the recording: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0014222
