The last adult novels are published by Albin Michel: Art brings us to the edge of the incomprehensible. The poems, in their alchemy and geology, are fragments of dreams, enigmas, shafts of light, part myth, and part fable.
Mysticism constitutes the experience of what transcends us while inhabiting us. Poetry, as creation, borders on it. The ultimate aim is reverence for the universe. The ultimate aim is love for life. The ultimate aim is harmony within oneself. What defines my writing is the sacred dimension of the poetic experience. And it is founded in very concrete reality, a reconciliation of the spiritual and the carnal. It speaks of transformation and seeks the unison of all that lives.
Clearly, your poetry is enjoyed by a wide range of different readers; but I was wondering if you have a kind of ideal reader? That is, who is the reader you imagine when you are writing? Thank you for saying that. As a translator, Cardona has worked at embassies and as an actress, had roles in successful films such as Chocolat , Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Jurassic World She has published in several journals and magazines, among them World Literature Today and Asymptote. She ultimately learns to let go, to trust in the ripeness of the moment. But the struggles along the way only toughen the frame and strengthen the spirit: An expectation for the unexpected remains alive like an unextinguishable flame: Death is hardly an event because she has just happily dissolved into the earth and the sky from which her individuality had emerged in the first place.
She has merely changed state from solid to liquid to ether. And this is a sequence that will be played again and again. Cummings and Carl Sagan. The words of the poet: The poems throughout the book explore various poetic and artistic legacies, from Welsh medieval legend to Klimt, Cocteau and Spielberg, that comprise something like an ages-old enterprise in the pursuit of rapture or a hyper-mode of being. My mother blows directions in my ear from the other side. The spokes of the wheel loosen amidst thoughts like wind storms containing all humanity.
The speaker exists somewhere between the mythical and the all-too-human. Thrust into the world, the poet as growing child encounters a widening terrain, from France to Italy, Germany, Geneva, Spain, Wales, and America: My mother cries at the Paris airport. She breaks my heart but the pull is stronger. A subsequent poem, in fourteen lines of free verse, echoes this non-position. Simulating existence suspended in a pulse of being and nothingness, the book alternates free and formal poetry, with pantoums, sonnets and sonnet-like forms interspersed among the predominantly free verse.
Her work presents a tender, pensile world that merits repeated line by line explorations. Hallman Generally speaking, poems are monolingual. That is, what a poem has to say is generally held to be specific enough to be fixed to a singular language event. Technically speaking, a note at the front tells us the English came first, but Cardona was born in Paris, so perhaps even their original composition was a sort of translation. What can you really say about a poet who holds three passports, speaks god knows how many languages, and appears to have mastered a number of arts? In addition to the two books of poetry, Cardona produced a thesis on Henry James, published translated works by Gabriel Arnou-Laujeac and Dorianne Laux, and, most prominently, has an extensive acting career that includes speaking roles in Chocolat and Jurassic World.
And to be honest, when I hear about these people, part of me wants to say come on, man, enough is enough. Too much limelight burns as surely does a summer sun. Even Dylan thought his Nobel was weird. But Cardona is different, I think, and that dissertation on James is the clue. In both letters and fiction, James asserted that all the arts are one, and what he meant was that a novel can aspire to do what the gigantic Tintorettos in the Louvre do. In short, we should no sooner segregate media than people. En route, there are these poetic hesitations, the vibrancy of life trapped in amber.
As well, Cardona surprises with jarring aphorisms. These simple blooms will stay with you for a time. But then they will fade, because ultimately a poet is not a voice or an image or a phrase. A poet is a mood. Highly unusual in a house on the southern coast of England close on miles from Edinburgh. As I threw open the windows with a clear view of Cap Gris Nez on the French coast 20 miles away the music grew louder. The air was suffused with the year old air lamenting the Scottish fallen at the Battle of Flodden, the crash of the waves and the wind in the trees on the cliffside.
As she writes in the poem, In Search for Benevolent Immortality: Cardona wrote each poem first in English and then in French, linguistically reflecting the fact that she was born in France and now lives in the USA. But a life in suspension for Cardona is a life suspended between many different languages and lands, cherished memories and experiences in a variety of different tongues, and the ancestral voices she hears are as multi-lingual as she is: As an acclaimed and accomplished poet, actor her credits include: Chocolat, Mumford,The Foot Journey, Heroes Reborn , and literary translator, language and literature are her lifeblood and passion and she is as beautifully deft with the words of others as she with her own.
The reflections you give me, conjure, surrender from within, I throw into the fire, the cauldron of resolutions. They burn into embers and flickers that evolve into butterflies. They flutter away, heal and free you of all chains So they can revisit and reinvent who you are. Let the dance begin. As a teenager Cardona spent time in Wales, and later in Ireland, and the collection and, for me, particularly the poems in the third part take inspiration from Celtic legend, from Ceridwen, a mother, an enchantress, and the Celtic goddess of rebirth, transformation, of whom Medieval Welsh poetry speaks of having possessed the cauldron of poetic inspiration.
The poems are a combination of worldly sophistication and fairytale. Cardona is an actor, and singer as well as writer, and her musical background speaks to how she lays her lines with subsets of rhythm. She chooses words that leave a lingering presence, line to line with a light hand, impressionistic, and yet exact. Cardona distills minutes and crystallizes images.
Time Remembered Do you remember when you were wolf and I fawn when you were a fly caught in my web when you were snake and I bear remember how we enchanted each other through centuries devoured one other became the other? That everything happens at the right time. While the casual poetry reader will enjoy the array of spectacular diction, imagery, and overall musical cadence of the piece, the hardcore enthusiast will find himself wading in a gold mine of rich thoughts and observations. To that end, audiences will find that each time they read the same poem, they will uncover a gem that went unseen in the first go-around.
The defining characteristic of Life in Suspension is its authenticity, both in presentation and style. Equipped with a dual English and French translation, it matters little whether the reader is versed in French. Each of the French versions, when read aloud, are evocative and compelling, and just downright pleasing to the ears.
The Memory Collector recalls a multitude of memories, increasing in age and intensity. Life in Suspension is melodious in reading, but dives into uncharted metaphysical and spiritual depths as well. A Lyrical Search This is a poignant book, much of it based on the author's own experience. The first two parts are filled with images of her childhood from across Europe as well as with portraits of lost family members for whom she has become a "gardener of memories. The French and English versions are distinct, with interesting differences: The poet is also a translator, editor of an anthology of Poetry and Aesthetics, and an essayist.
The poetry in this collection was originally written in English and then translated by the poet into French. Her collection is separated thematically into four sections which seem to bear a correlation with life cycles. Many of Cardona's works revolve around her family, most particularly her mother whose essence seems omnipresent for her daughter as expressed in her opening poem, To Kitty, Who Loved the Sea and Somerset Maugham: But in that family is also the world embraced in miniature: Helene Cardona's bilingual collection of poetry, Life in Suspension: La Vie Suspendue , reels with energy and images that pour out into the reader's consciousness.
