  • A Prosody of Free Verseby Richard Andrews

    Taylor and Francis 2016; US$ 54.95

    There is to date no comprehensive account of the rhythms of free verse. The main purpose of A Prosody of Free Verse: explorations in rhythm is to fill that gap and begin to provide a systematic approach to describing and analyzing free verse rhythms. Most studies have declared the attempt to write such a prosody as impossible: they prefer to see... more...

  • Poésie (Les Grands Articles)by Encyclopaedia Universalis

    Primento Digital Publishing 2016; US$ 4.99

    La poésie est d'autant plus difficile à définir qu'elle recouvre une pratique très diversifiée, plus qu'un genre particulier. Mais, tout autant que sa diversité, frappe son universalité, qui invite à chercher, par-delà ses multiples variantes linguistiques et historiques, les critères constants qui la distinguent d'autres pratiques littéraires. more...

  • Lyrisme (Les Grands Articles)by Encyclopaedia Universalis

    Primento Digital Publishing 2016; US$ 4.99

    Primento Digital Publishing 2016; US$ 2.99

    Pour nombre de ses premiers lecteurs, Dans la chaleur vacante , livre clair et même spectaculairement aéré, a paru constituer une manière d'énigme. Ces ruptures, ces suspens dont la langue d'André du Bouchet (1924-2001) emprunte au paysage, à l'espace ou au corps sensible une modalité fondatrice, donnaient à lire des sols et des lointains, une meule... more...

  • Corrupted into Songby Alvin Feinman; Deborah Dorfman; Harold Bloom; James Geary

    Princeton University Press 2016; US$ 19.95 US$ 15.96

    According to Harold Bloom, "The best of Alvin Feinman's poetry is as good as anything by a twentieth-century American. His work achieves the greatness of the American sublime." Yet, in part because he published so sparsely, Feinman remained little-read and largely unknown when he died in 2008. This definitive edition of Feinman's complete work, which... more...
