Poetry

  • Translation as Museby Elizabeth Marie Young

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 40.00

    Poetry is often said to resist translation, its integration of form and meaning rendering even the best translations problematic.

Catullus... more...

  • A Transnational Poeticsby Jahan Ramazani

    University of Chicago Press 2015; US$ 30.00

    Poetry is often viewed as culturally homogeneous??stubbornly national,? in T. S. Eliot?s phrase, or ?the most provincial of the arts,? according to W. H. Auden. But in  A Transnational Poetics,  Jahan Ramazani uncovers the ocean-straddling energies of the poetic imagination?in modernism and the Harlem Renaissance; in post?World War II... more...

    Faber & Faber 2015; US$ 17.99

    This new collection from Don Paterson, his first since the Forward prize-winning Rain in 2009, is a series of forty sonnets.

  • The Road Not Takenby David Orr

    Penguin Publishing Group 2015; US$ 25.95

    A cultural ?biography? of Robert Frost?s beloved poem, arguably the most popular piece of literature written by an American ?Two roads diverged in a yellow wood . . .?

  • Reading Chaucer's Poemsby Bernard O'Donoghue; O'; Bernard Donoghue; Geoffrey Chaucer

    Faber & Faber 2015; US$ 17.99

    Geoffrey Chaucer is rightly regarded as the Father of English Literature. His observant wit, his narrative skill and characterization, his linguistic invention, have been a well from which the language's greatest writers have drawn: Shakespeare, Pope, Austen, Dickens among them. A courtier, a trade emissary and diplomat, he fought in the Hundred Years... more...

  • Poetic Machinationsby Michael Golston

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 59.99

    The shape, lineation, and prosody of postmodern poems are extravagantly inventive, imbuing their form with as much meaning as their content. Through a survey of American poetry and poetics from the end of World War II to the present, Michael Golston traces the proliferation of these experiments to a growing fascination with allegory in philosophy,... more...

  • Rethinking Gaspara Stampa in the Canon of Renaissance Poetryby Dr Unn Falkeid; Professor Aileen A Feng; Professor Allyson M Poska; Professor Abby Zanger

    Ashgate Publishing Ltd 2015; US$ 104.95

    Despite the fact that Gaspara Stampa (1523?-1554) has been recognized as one of the greatest and most creative poets and musicians of the Italian Renaissance, scholarship on her work has been surprisingly scarce and uncoordinated. In recent years, critical attention towards her work has increased, but until now there have been no anthologies dedicated... more...
