Über diesen Titel


Written as a notebook, My Secret Boat is a collage of stories, poems, dreams, and sketches. Among Burkard's subjects are childhood, the sea, family, alcoholism, love.

We follow the narrator on a journey as he explores the images, characters, and incidents from his past. Identities merge and even become contrary.

From Publishers Weekly:

Burkard's ( Fictions from the Self ) work is an acquired taste. For those who wish a direct encounter with an elusive medium, his seventh book--particularly its prose poems--may well offer a transcendent experience. The author approaches and invokes language as a sensory thing before it is a source of knowledge; best appreciated in a state of primal, sentient innocence, his words refresh and transform the possibilities of pure perception, while avoiding language's usual obligation to inform. Burkard's carefully reduced stock of images is powerful: the sea, a lantern, snow, rain and ghosts figure in a fragmentary dream that recurs over the course of the volume as the narrator plies a pen ("my secret boat") to move through states of being, address sundry characters and espystet elements of plot. Claiming to learn most when seeking least, "standing / in an idea" or losing himself in what lies beyond himself, the speaker lends a voluminous consciousness to us that sympathetic readers will not soon forget.
