    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 13.05

    So Many Moving Parts, Tiffany Atkinson?s third collection, is an eccentric 21st-century meditation on the awkwardness of body and spirit and their unexpected, often unwanted intrusions into the business of everyday life.

  • I Have Crossed an Oceanby Grace Nichols

    Bloodaxe Books 2014; US$ 14.51

    Grace Nichols? poetry has a gritty lyricism that addresses the transatlantic connections central to the Caribbean-British experience. Her work brings a mythic awareness and a sensuous musicality that is at the same time disquieting. Born and educated in Guyana, Grace Nichols moved to Britain in 1977. I Have Crossed an Ocean is a comprehensive selection... more...

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

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2013; US$ 50.10

    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...

  • Dances on the Plains (Mandele, Achebe, Angelou and other Poems)by Orok Otu Duke

    "Dances on the Plains" seeks to reflect the period between March and July, 2014, during the Nigerian National Conference 2014, when a cross section of Nigerians at home and in diaspora were selected, gathered in Abuja, Nigeria and mandated to discuss, negotiate, ventilate and proffer solutions to all the nagging problems presently troubling and militating... 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • So viel Anfang war seltenby Klaus Hurlebusch

    Wallstein Verlag 2013; US$ 29.29

  • Imaginar el pasadoby Karen Saban

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2013; US$ 40.82

    Hauptbeschreibung Desde fines de la última dictadura militar (1976-83), la sociedad argentina ha intentado lidiar con el pasado traumático. Luego de los inconclusos Juicios a la Junta (1985), los años 90 introdujeron el olvido. En esta época y hasta fines de los años 2000 cobran suma importancia los relatos ficcionales de la historia, que narran... more...
