Steve’s third book is forthcoming from Wolfson Press. It’s called Indiana Noble Sad Man of the Year.
These poems, a series of snapshots in the life of Steve Henn’s poetry alter ego, “Steve Henn,” collectively capture not just a moment, but a whole history of teaching, parenting, walking around town, getting a canned ham as a Christmas bonus, shooing away door to door solicitors, crushing on a first grade classmate, and wrestling with the world of social media. The book, dedicated to Henn’s four children, includes artwork by each of his kids. By the end of the collection you too may understand why Steve Henn is Indiana Noble Sad Man of the Year.
Jeanette Winterson ON ART:
Art can make a difference because it pulls people up short. It says, don’t accept things for their face value; you don’t have to go along with any of this; you can think for yourself. It gives you a kind of self-reliance. We all feel powerless and we can’t really manage to do anything because there’s just so much. I want to try and cut through those feelings of apathy and powerlessness and be a kind of rallying point, offer a rallying cry, to people who would otherwise feel dispossessed.
Jeanette Winterson ON LANGUAGE:
For me, language is a freedom. As soon as you have found the words with which to express something, you are no longer incoherent, you are no longer trapped by your own emotions, by your own experiences; you can describe them, you can tell them, you can bring them out of yourself and give them to somebody else. That is an enormously liberating experience, and it worries me that more and more people are learning not to use language; they’re giving in to the banalities of the television media and shrinking their vocabulary, shrinking their own way of using this fabulous tool that human beings have refined over so many centuries into this extremely sensitive instrument. I don’t want to make it crude, I don’t want to make it into shopping-list language, I don’t want to make it into simply an exchange of information: I want to make it into the subtle, emotional, intellectual, freeing thing that it is and that it can be.
