  • Mapby Wislawa Szymborska; Clare Cavanagh; Stanislaw Baranczak

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2015; US$ 32.00

    The Questions You Ask Yourself   What do a smile and handshake hold? Do your greetings never keep you as far apart as other people sometimes are when passing judgment at first glance? Do you open each human fate like a book, seeking feelings not in fonts or formats? Are you sure you decipher people completely?... more...

  • Osip Mandelstam and the Modernist Creation of Traditionby Clare Cavanagh

    Princeton University Press 1994; US$ 47.00

    If modernism marked, as some critics claim, an "apocalypse of cultural community," then Osip Mandelstam (1891-1938) must rank among its most representative figures. Born to Central European Jews in Warsaw on the cusp of the modern age, he could claim neither Russian nor European traditions as his birthright. Describing the poetic movement he helped... more...

  • A Defense of Ardorby Adam Zagajewski; Clare Cavanagh

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 15.99

    Ardor, inspiration, the soul, the sublime: Such terms have long since fallen from favor among critics and artists alike. In his new collection of essays, Adam Zagajewski continues his efforts to reclaim for art not just the terms but the scanted spiritual dimension of modern human existence that they stake out. Bringing gravity and grace to his... more...

  • Unseen Handby Adam Zagajewski; Clare Cavanagh

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 15.99

    One of the most gifted poets of our time, Adam Zagajewski is a contemporary classic. Few writers in poetry or prose have attained the lucid intelligence and limpid economy of style that are the trademarks of his work. His wry humor, gentle skepticism, and perpetual sense of history's dark possibilities have earned him a devoted international following.... more...

  • Nonrequired Readingby Wislawa Szymborska; Clare Cavanagh

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2015; US$ 30.00

    Absent-Minded Professors Anecdotes about great people make for bracing reading. All right, the reader thinks, so I didn't discover chloroform, but I wasn't the worst student in my class, as Liebig was. Of course I wasn't the first to find salvarsan, but at least I'm not as scatterbrained as Ehrlich, who wrote letters to himself. Mendeleev may be... more...

  • Eternal Enemiesby Adam Zagajewski; Clare Cavanagh

  • Hereby Wislawa Szymborska; Clare Cavanagh; Stanislaw Baranczak

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2013; US$ 14.95

    Here I can't speak for elsewhere, but here on Earth we've got a fair supply of everything. Here we manufacture chairs and sorrows, scissors, tenderness, transistors, violins, teacups, dams, and quips. There may be more of everything elsewhere, but for reasons left unspecified they lack paintings, picture tubes, pierogies, handkerchiefs for tears.... more...

  • Monologue of a Dogby Wislawa Szymborska; Clare Cavanagh; Stanislaw Baranczak; Billy Collins

    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2015; US$ 22.00

    Monologue of a Dog Ensnared in History There are dogs and dogs. I was among the chosen. I had good papers and wolf's blood in my veins. I lived upon the heights inhaling the odors of views: meadows in sunlight, spruces after rain, and clumps of earth beneath the snow. I had a decent home and people on call, I was fed, washed, groomed, and taken... more...

  • The Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poeticsby Roland Greene; Stephen Cushman; Clare Cavanagh; Jahan Ramazani; Paul Rouzer

    Princeton University Press 2012; US$ 49.50
