    Bloodaxe Books 2016; US$ 13.05

    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...

  • This changes thingsby Claire Askew

    Bloodaxe Books 2016; US$ 13.05

    This changes things is Claire Askew?s first full collection, coming after years of work in Scotland?s flourishing poetry and spoken word scene.

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...

  • Berlin-Hamletby SzilÁRd JÓZsef BorbÉLy; Ottilie Mulzet

    New York Review Books 2016; US$ 12.95

    Berlin-Hamlet evokes a stroll through one of the phantasmagoric shopping arcades described in Walter Benjamin?s Passagen-Werk ?but instead of the delirious image fragments of nineteenth-century European culture, we pass by disembodied scraps of written text, remnants as ghostly as their authors: primarily Franz Kafka but also Benjamin himself... more...

  • Der Lauf der Nacht am helllichten Tagby Roland Merk

    edition 8 2016; US$ 15.99

    "Beim Anblick / der Sterne das Gefühl / in hell erleuchtete Löcher / zu starren." Der Vierzeiler aus diesem zweiten Gedichtband von Roland Merk gibt den Grundton für eine lyrische Odyssee durch dunkle Zeit: Wie ist es heute, als Mensch in einem atemlosen Dasein ohne Boden zu leben? In präzisen Beobachtungen ist hier von Alltäglichem die Rede, von Kindheitserinnerungen,... more...

  • Christine de Pizan and the Categories of Differenceby Marilynn Desmond

    University of Minnesota Press 1998; Not Available

    Christine de Pizan, an Italian-born writer in French in the early fifteenth century, composed lyric poetry, debate poetry, political biography, and allegory. At times complicit, at times subversive, at times revisionary, her texts constantly negotiate the hierarchical and repressive discourses of late medieval court culture. How they do so is the... more...
