  • Montale, Debussy, and Modernismby Gian-Paolo Biasin

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    Integrating the study of both music and art into an exploration of the early poetry of Eugenio Montale (1896-1982), this book situates Italy's premier poet of the twentieth century within the Modernist movement. Gian-Paolo Biasin finds in Montale's poetry broad resonances, reverberations, and comparisons that involve it in the European culture of... more...

  • Grace Periodby Gary Miranda

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    From a review of Listeners at the Breathing Place : [Miranda's] "best is breathtaking. Beyond the words, whatever is is light. A poet who can make us know, with this intensity, what we may do when words reach into silence, even the silences between the stars, has begun to tell us of the place for love. Certainly we can want no better."-- Michael... more...

  • A Drink at the Mirageby Michael J. Rosen

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 29.95

    "Between the discovery that there is a design which only his poetry enables him to find as he confronts the world and the discovery that such a design is a snare, merely a means of keeping him from further discernment, Michael Rosen is wedged, is productively pinioned, [ should say, for it is just this pressure--of meaning discerned on one hand and... more...

  • Paul Valery's "Album des Vers Anciens"by Suzanne Nash

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 42.50

    Questioning the view that the work is not representative of the poet's mature accomplishment, Suzanne Nash argues that the revisionary process involved in its creation led Valery to reflect on problems fundamental to poetic production and thus provided inspiration for all his later poetry. Originally published in 1983. The Princeton Legacy Library... more...
