Poetry

  • Ten Windowsby Jane Hirshfield

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2015; US$ 24.95

    Preface   Good art is a truing of vision, in the way a saw is trued in the saw shop, to cut more cleanly. It is also a changing of vision. Entering a good poem, a person feels, tastes, hears, thinks, and sees in altered ways. Why ask art into a life at all, if not to be transformed and enlarged by its presence and mysterious means? Some hunger for... more...

    University of Alabama Press 2015; US$ 39.95

    Literary history generally locates the primary movement toward poetic innovation in twentieth-century modernism, an impulse carried out against a supposedly enervated ?late-Romantic? poetry of the nineteenth century. The original essays in Active Romanticism challenge this interpretation by tracing the fundamental continuities between Romanticism?s... more...

  • Strange Meetingsby Harry Ricketts

    Random House 2015; US$ 31.98

    Strange Meetings provides a highly original account of the War Poets of 1914-1918, written through a series of actual encounters, or near-encounters, from Siegfried Sassoon's first, blushing meeting with Rupert Brooke over kidneys and bacon at Eddie Marsh's breakfasts before the war, through famous moments like Sassoon's encouragement of Owen when... more...

  • A Sense of Regardby Laura McCullough

    University of Georgia Press 2015; US$ 24.95

    A Sense of Regard , says Laura McCullough, “is an effort to collect the voices of living poets and scholars in thoughtful and considered exfoliation of the current confluence of poetry and race, the difficulties, the nuances, the unexamined, the feared, the questions, and the quarrels across aesthetic camps and biases.”. The contributors... more...

  • Genesis B and the Comedic Imperativeby John F. Vickrey

    Lehigh University Press 2015; US$ 84.99

    Genesis B and the Comedic Imperative argues that the Old English (from Old Saxon) poem Genesis B does not present, as some scholars assert, an unorthodox view of the Fall of Adam and Eve but that the poem reflects the comedic "happy ending" that characterizes much medieval Christian literature: the eventual attainment of Heaven. more...

  • Selected Poemsby Louis MacNeice; Edna Longley; Michael Longley

    Faber & Faber 2015; US$ 18.94

    'I would have a poet able bodied, fond of talking, a reader of the newspapers, capable of pity and laughter, informed in economics, appreciative of women, involved in personal relationships, actively interested in politics, susceptible to physical impressions.' Louis MacNeice's prescription is designed to look ordinary, rather than esoteric, but... more...
