  • Ereignisgeschichtenby Christoph Deupmann

    Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht 2012; US$ 67.70

    Ereignisse sind Erzählanlässe par excellence. Zugleich sind Ereignisse der politischen Zeitgeschichte seit mehr als einem halben Jahrhundert zu Gegenständen einer umfassenden Medialisierung und Visualisierung geworden: »Geschichte zerfällt in Bilder, nicht in Geschichten« (W. Benjamin). Die vorliegende Arbeit untersucht die auf den ersten Blick unwahrscheinliche... more...

  • God Loves Youby Kathryn Maris

    Seren 2013; US$ 17.99

    Borrowing rhythms, vocabulary, and themes from the Bible, this collection of poems is more than artful parody?it is an approach that accommodates large themes, unraveling them in new ways. The first section is a kaleidoscopic view of the sins and sinners of the modern city and opens, appropriately enough, with a vision of a flood to rival Noah?s. The... more...

  • At the White Coastby Janet Charman

    Auckland University Press 2012; US$ 15.99

    Making landfall among the inhabitants of a gritty metropolis, these poems transport the reader from the white coast of New Zealand, the Land of the Long White Cloud, to the shores of another country and another time. Set on the cusp of the 1970s and 1980s, Janet Charman?s compelling poetry collection centers on the disorienting experiences of a young... more...

  • The Blue Coatby Elizabeth Smither

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 15.99

    Whimsical and tender, this poetry collection examines the commonplace and the quirky for resonance, contemplation, and verve. From an out-of-season daffodil and a chipped Limoges plate to a lipstick stain on a poem and a bee being released, it illuminates the poetry in the everyday by focusing on a single image and expanding to the cusp of something... more...

  • Imaginative Theatralitätby Manfred Kern; Felicitas Biller; Claudia Höckner; Anja-Mareike Klingbeil; Manuel Schwembacher

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2013; US$ 53.64

    Obwohl das Mittelalter die Institution des Theaters nicht kennt, entwickeln mittelalterliche Poesie, Historiographie und Kunst äußerst differenzierte Verfahren der szenischen Darstellung und Perspektivierung. Von besonderem Interesse ist dabei das Spannungsverhältnis zwischen einer "theatralen" Ebene, die im literarischen oder bildnerischen Kunstwerk... more...

  • Someone Else's Wedding Vowsby Bianca Stone

    Tin House Books 2014; US$ 15.95

    Someone Else?s Wedding Vows reflects on the different forms of love, which can be both tremendously joyous and devastatingly destructive. The title poem confronts a human ritual of marriage from the standpoint of a wedding photographer. Within the tedium and alienation of the ceremony, the speaker grapples with a strange human hopefulness. In this... more...

  • Verzückte Distanzenby Monika Rinck; Heinz Kattner

    zu Klampen 2013; US$ 6.69

    »Wenn die Dichterin Monika Rinck den Bewusstseinsraum des Poetischen öffnet, dann geht es meist um eine Neugruppierung unterschiedlichster Reflexions- und Assoziationskräfte, um die Integration disparatester Gedanken und Bilder in eine mobile Form ? In ihrer literarischen Arbeit verwickelt sie sich bewußt in ein Spannungsverhältnis von medientechnischen,... more...

  • Millennial Teethby Dan Albergotti

    Southern Illinois University Press 2014; US$ 15.95

    Both bleak and bewildering, Millennial Teeth , the visceral new collection by poet Dan Albergotti, maps a contradictory journey filled with longing and dread, cynicism and hope. A heady mix of traditional forms and more experimental verse, Albergotti’s volume lures readers inexorably into the poet’s obsessions with mystery, doubt, ephemerality,... more...

  • Quito Ecuador & Its Surroundingsby Peter Krahenbuhl

    Hunter Publishing 2009; US$ 7.99

    Welcome to Quito, the city of eternal spring, bridge to Ecuador's past, and your gateway city. Even if you are not much of a city person, this World Heritage Site has a certain charm to it. Nestled within the Avenue of the Volcanoes, the breathtaking backdrop blends with colonial architecture to create a truly unique surrounding. At 9,319 feet,... more...

  • Historia de una cucarachaby Carmen Gil; Sonja Wimmer

    Cuento de Luz SL 2012; US$ 8.99
