  • Indiosby Linda Hogan; Lois Beardslee

    Wings Press 2012; US$ 8.99

    Filled with powerful imagery, this poem relates the tragic story of Indios, a native woman falsely accused of the death of her children. As it echoes the plight of other women like Indios?including Malinche, Pocahontas, La Llorona, and Medea?this narrative conveys the truth of a history twisted to suit the needs of a conquering power. Weaving Native... more...

  • Feeding On Dreamsby Ariel Dorfman

    Melbourne University Press 2012; Not Available

    Dorfman portrays, through visceral scenes and powerful intellect, the personal and political maelstroms underlying his migrations from Buenos Aires, on the run from Pinochet’s death squads, to safe houses in Paris and Amsterdam, and eventually to America, his childhood home. The toll on Dorfman's wife and two sons, the ‘earthquake of language’ that... more...

  • Imaginative Theatralitätby Manfred Kern; Felicitas Biller; Claudia Höckner; Anja-Mareike Klingbeil; Manuel Schwembacher

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2013; US$ 43.56

    Obwohl das Mittelalter die Institution des Theaters nicht kennt, entwickeln mittelalterliche Poesie, Historiographie und Kunst äußerst differenzierte Verfahren der szenischen Darstellung und Perspektivierung. Von besonderem Interesse ist dabei das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen einer "theatralen" Ebene, die im literarischen oder bildnerischen Kunstwerk... more...

  • The Mining Roadby Leanne O'Sullivan

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 11.59

    The Mining Road, Leanne O'Sullivan?s third poetry collection, finds inspiration in the disused copper mines that haunt the rugged terrain around Allihies, near her home at Beara, in West Cork. Like remnants of a lost world, the mines? ruined towers, shafts, man-engines and dressing floors, evoke an elemental landscape in which men and women laboured... more...

  • Bad Machineby George Szirtes

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    The body is the 'bad machine' of George Szirtes' latest book of poems. The sudden death of his elderly father and of his younger friend, the poet Michael Murphy, remind him how machines – sources of energy and delight in their prime – go so easily wrong; and that change in the body is a signal for moving on. But language too is a body. Here, politics,... more...

  • The Church of Omnivorous Lightby Robert Wrigley

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.51

    Robert Wrigley is a poet of America?s northern Rocky Mountains. Over three decades his poetry?s pervading concerns have been rural Western landscapes and humankind?s place within the natural world. His most recent poems have presented a portrait of a nation, one that is a singular part of a singular planet, with an exuberant and frequently exasperating... more...

  • Grun-tu-molaniby Vidyan Ravinthiran

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    Vidyan Ravinthiran?s much-anticipated first collection contains many poems about Sri Lanka which fuse politics, personal history and myth. Yet his voice pitches itself not so much halfway between East and West as between emotional forthrightness and linguistic exuberance. Traditional forms contend with brusquer impulses in an era of technological... more...

  • Omnesia (alternative text)by W.N. Herbert

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    Omnesia' is Bill Herbert's melding of omniscience and amnesia, the modern condition of thinking we can know everything about our world but, in actuality, retaining dangerously little. This doubly impressive new collection – published in twin editions, the alternative text and the remix – approaches and evades such flawed totality. For the past seven... more...

  • The Pleasure Groundby Richard Murphy

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.51

    Richard Murphy, now in his eighties, is one of Ireland?s most distinguished poets, known particularly for poems drawing on the people and history of the west of Ireland with classical rigour and 'unvarnished' clarity. He emerged in the 1950s with John Montague and Thomas Kinsella as one of the three major poets in the new Irish poetic renaissance.... more...
