  • Spiegelungen Orteby Manfred Peter Hein

    Wallstein Verlag 2015; US$ 14.54

    Raumgreifende Gedichte aus Finnland voll Sprachmagie, Erinnerungskraft und Geschichte. Manfred Peter Heins Gedichte ziehen Bilanz, sie sind Selbstvergewisserungen über den Platz des Autors in der Welt, Expeditionen »ins Nachtlabyrinth«. Ruhe spricht aus ihnen, jedoch alles andere als Beschaulichkeit. Hein ist ein Autor der Anteilnahme, am Schicksal... more...

  • Poemsby Charles Baudelaire

    Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group 2015; US$ 13.50

    Modern poetry begins with Charles Baudelaire (1821-67), who employed his unequalled technical mastery to create the shadowy, desperately dramatic urban landscape -- populated by the addicted and the damned -- which so compellingly mirrors our modern condition. Deeply though darkly spiritual, titanic in the changes he wrought, Baudelaire looms over... more...

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2014; US$ 40.99

    Paul Celan, one of the greatest German-language poets of the twentieth century, created an oeuvre that stands as testimony to the horrors of his times and as an attempt to chart a topography for a new, uncontaminated language and world.

    De Gruyter 2014; US$ 112.00

  • Carminaby Gaius Valerius Catullus; Len Krisak

    Carcanet Press Ltd. 2014; US$ 19.99

    The works of poet Catullus have long been a companion for both lovers and those whom love has disappointed. He is also a satirical and epigrammatic writer who savagely consoles with laughter. Carmina captures his mordant, scathing wit and also the concise tenderness, the famous love for reluctant Lesbia who is made present in these new versions.... more...

  • Iphigenia in Taurisby Johann Wolfgang von Goethe; Roy Pascal; Martin University College London Swales

    Angel Classics 2014; US$ 11.59

    ‘Few works can have such purchase on our contemporary concerns as Goethe?s Iphigenia . The endless bloodletting of the play?s prehistory, the desperate cycle of outrage followed by acts of retribution that fuel the flames; the play?s understanding of the notion of sacrifice that conjoins the sacred and the violent into a poisonous brew – all... more...
