  • The Abandoned Settlementsby James Sheard

    Random House 2017; US$ 14.09

    The poems in James Sheard?s remarkable third book are about love and leaving, of how the rift of departure brings on a kind of haunting ? of the people involved and the places where they lived ? an emotional trace of departed lives and loves. This is what these poems are: the scars of separation, the spoors of desire. Sheard writes powerfully about... more...

  • Ilse Aichingers Lyrikby Hannah Markus

    De Gruyter 2015; US$ 106.10

    Ilse Aichingers Lyrik gehört eher zum postulierten als zum tatsächlichen literarischen Kanon: Knapp hundert der im Deutschen Literaturarchiv Marbach aufbewahrte Gedichte und Gedichtentwürfe sind noch unveröffentlicht, und für das mehrfach ausgezeichnete publizierte Werk fehlte bisher eine methodisch fundierte Überblicksstudie. Der Band... more...

  • Rakeby Matthew Caley

    Throughout Rake, Matthew Caley?s fifth collection, it can appear as if we are leafing through the oblique diary of an immortal time-travelling rake, one who is seeking his ?one true beloved? through an heroic tally of amorous encounters, desperately trying to get beyond appetite; or possibly a number of parallel immortal time-travelling rakes; or maybe... more...

They embody a need to... more...

  • The Poetry of Alfred Lichensteinby Alfred Lichenstein

    Copyright Group 2015; US$ 2.49

    Alfred Lichtenstein was born on 23rd August 1889 in Berlin. He was well educated and graduated with a law degree. However, it appears that law held little appeal but writing short stories and poems did. His early style was to lampoon people and he quickly built a reputation in Berlin as an expressionist writer. He broadened his appeal and became... more...

  • Tempest of Starsby Jean Cocteau; Jeremy Reed; David Austen

    Enitharmon Press 1997; US$ 9.99

    Film-maker, novelist, artist, playwright, entrepreneur, Jean Cocteau (1889-1963) regarded himself above all as a poet. No matter how diverse or prolific his creativity, he saw poetry as central to his vision of all the arts. And it was as a poet that he began his career, publishing Le Cap de Bonne-Espérance in 1919, and it was in this vocation that... more...
