  • Metamorphosesby Ovid; Stanley Lombardo; W. R. Johnson

    Hackett Publishing Company, Inc. 2010; US$ 11.95

    Ovid's Metamorphoses gains its ideal twenty-first-century herald in Stanley Lombardo's bracing translation of a wellspring of Western art and literature that is too often treated, even by poets, as a mere vehicle for the scores of myths it recasts and transmits rather than as a unified work of art with epic-scale ambitions of its own. Such misconceptions... more...

    Sometimes it seems like there are as many definitions of poetry as there are poems. Coleridge defined poetry as “the best words in the best order.” St. Augustine called it “the Devil’s wine.” For Shelley, poetry was “the record of the best and happiest moments of the happiest and best minds.” But no matter... more...

  • In The Open Windby Aristides De Almeida Filho

    Bitingduck Press 1999; US$ 2.99

    What do we know? Read at will. Out of many winds, each poem has some clues and hints to a story. And if your questions narrow down to one: from where does In The Open Wind come? I tell you it is unlikely that this question will ever be fully resolved. What do we know? Robert Graves once pointed out ?the paradox of poetry?s obstinate continuance? in... more...
