  • Attack of the Difficult Poemsby Charles Bernstein

    University of Chicago Press 2011; US$ 26.00

    Charles Bernstein is our postmodern jester of American poesy, equal part surveyor of democratic vistas and scholar of avant-garde sensibilities. In a career spanning thirty-five years and forty books, he has challenged and provoked us with writing that is decidedly unafraid of the tensions between ordinary and poetic language, and between everyday... more...

  • Close Listeningby Charles Bernstein

    Oxford University Press, USA 1998; US$ 38.99

    Close Listening brings together seventeen strikingly original essays, especially written for this volume, on the poetry reading, the sound of poetry, and the visual performance of poetry.

  • Das europäische Sonettby Friedhelm Kemp

    Wallstein Verlag 2013; US$ 99.98

    Hauptbeschreibung"In diesen fünf- bis sechshundert hier versammelten Sonetten geht es in erster Linie um das, was jedes sagt, was sie miteinander verbindet, wie sie miteinander sich unterreden, sich gegenseitig beleuchten und auslegen. Und wie sie nicht selten, nachbarschaftlich oder über die Nationen und Jahrhunderte hinweg, zu thematisch Verwandtem... more...

  • De glanzende kiemcelby S. Vestdijk

    Amsterdam University Press 2007; US$ 51.75

    De herfst bouwt veel kerktorens bij,' zo begint het sonnet dat Simon Vestdijk in de wintermaanden van 1942 schreef, aan het slot van een reeks van acht lezingen die hij vervolgens in het kamp Sint Michelsgestel voor zijn medegijzelaars zou houden.

  • Die Erneuerung der poetischen Spracheby Judit Arokay

    Iudicium Verlag 2011; US$ 20.87

    Die poetologische Tradition in Japan eröffnet Perspektiven auf kulturhistorisch zentrale Themen, die weit über die dichterische Praxis einzelner Epochen hinausreichen. Zwar sind die Poetiken immer auch Anleitungen zum Dichten, es zeigt sich aber, dass dort zugleich sehr grundsätzliche Fragen verhandelt werden: Was zeichnet dichterische Sprache aus,... more...

  • Ethics and Lyric Poetryby Astrid Lohöfer

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2014; US$ 59.89

    This book examines the relationship between ethics and modernist poetry, arguing that the ethical implications of these texts are inseparable from their creative use of language.
