    John Hunt Publishing 2014; US$ 9.99

    In this haunting debut collection, Alex Niven explores a poetic hinterland that is also a psychological and cultural wilderness.

  • You Must Remember Thisby Michael Bazzett

    Milkweed Editions 2014; US$ 16.00

    A woozy logic dominates these poems: a heart can become a buzzing hive of bees, a rooster can trigger a series of bombs, a young man can embrace a city bus as his spirit animal. Yet Bazzett slices through his poems with a dangerous sense of humor. “Your humor is deft and cutting / my fingers off one by one,? as one poem puts it. Once dismembered,... more...

  • Carminaby Gaius Valerius Catullus; Len Krisak

    Carcanet 2014; US$ 18.89

    Catullus is a companion of lovers and of those whom love has disappointed. He is also a satirical and epigrammatic writer who savagely consoles with laughter. Carmina captures in English both the mordant, scathing wit and also the concise tenderness, the famous love for reluctant Lesbia who is made present in these new versions. A range of English... more...

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 10.14

    Third Wish Wasted is a book concerned with our wishes and desires.

    Three Rooms Press 2014; US$ 16.95

    In the forceful, staggering poetry of César Vallejo, poet and photographer Gerard Malanga discovered a kindred spirit.

Malanga... more...

    Auckland University Press 2014; US$ 18.94

    Young Country is a book of poetry by twenty-first-century writer Kerry Hines alongside images by nineteenth-century photographer William Williams.

  • The Routledge Companion to Commedia dell'Arteby Judith Chaffee; Oliver Crick

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 225.00

    From Commedia dell?Arte came archetypal characters that are still with us today, such as Harlequin and Pantalone, and the rediscovered craft of writing comic dramas and masked theatre. From it came the forces that helped create and influence Opera, Ballet, Pantomime, Shakespeare, Moliere, Lopes de Vega, Goldoni, Meyerhold, and even the glove puppet,... more...
