  • Cyrano de Bergeracby Edmond Rostand; Gladys Thomas; Mary F. Guillemard

    The Floating Press 2010; US$ 3.99

    Very loosely based on the life of a French duelist and playwright, Cyrano de Bergerac is a play in verse that tells the tale of soldier who is gifted with every imaginable positive attribute -- except that of a handsome appearance. Because of his perceived ugliness (including a disproportionately large nose), Cyrano feels unworthy of the woman he loves... more...

  • Polyeucteby Pierre Corneille; Thomas Constable

    The Floating Press 2011; US$ 3.99

    This seventeenth-century drama in five acts was inspired by the tale of Saint Polyeuctus (rendered as 'Polyeucte' in French), a Roman convert to the faith who was martyred in 259 A.D. However, although an imaginatively retold version of the story of St. Polyeuctus comprises some of the plot of the play, Polyeucte also relates metaphorically... more...

  • Love and Death in Medieval French and Occitan Courtly Literatureby Simon Gaunt

    Oxford University Press 2006; US$ 124.99

    Some of medieval culture's most arresting images and stories inextricably associate love and death. Thus the troubadour Jaufre Rudel dies in the arms of the countess of Tripoli, having loved her from afar without ever having seen her. Or in Marie de France's Chevrefoil, Tristan and Iseult's fatal love is hauntingly symbolized by the fatally... more...

  • Claude Simonby Celia Britton

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 53.95

    This is a major study of the Nobel prize-winning French novelist Claude Simon. Simon is a complex figure: for all that he writes in a distinctively modern fictional tradition (exemplified by Proust, Joyce, Beckett and Robbe-Grillet), his novels contain strong elements of visual representation alongside a very different king of free-floating, anti-realist... more...

  • Puna Wai Koreroby Reina Whaitiri; Robert Sullivan

    Auckland University Press 2014; US$ 21.88

    From revered established writers as well as exciting new voices, the poems in Puna Wai Korero offer a broad picture of Maori poetry in English. The voices are many and diverse: confident, angry, traditional, respectful, experimental, despairing and full of hope, expressing a range of poetic techniques and the full scope of what it is to be Maori. more...

  • The Flowers of Evilby Charles Baudelaire; Cyril Scott

    The Floating Press 2014; US$ 3.99

    One of the most influential volumes of poetry of the nineteenth century, Charles Baudelaire's The Flowers of Evil caused a sensation when it was originally published, even earning Baudelaire a fine when he was charged with "insulting public decency." With strong themes of debauchery, decadence, hedonism and sensuality, these intoxicating... more...

    C.H. Sisson was born in Bristol in 1914. To celebrate his centenary, this Reader includes a generous selection of his poems, translations and essays. The poems are drawn from all periods of Sisson?s writing life, from the darkly satirical work of the 1950s and 1960s to the Virgilian Somerset poems to the reflective late poems in which Sisson, looking... more...

  • Complex Knowingby Chris Katsaropoulos

    Luminis Books, Inc. 2014; US$ 7.99

    These poems send the reader on a journey into the hidden realm of the subconscious, where the sixth sense of knowing overwhelms the other five. Chris Katsaropoulos has written a collection of poems that turn words and phrases inside out, bringing forth the intricate truths that can be found within a frozen landscape, a lost tribe of warriors, a funeral... more...
