(P/B) HOMUNCULUS
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0084

Homunculus is a long poem from award-winning poet and translator James Womack, based around the Elegies of the Roman poet Maximian. The last of the Roman poets, Maximian wrote in the sixth century, after the fall of the Western Roman Empire; critics have called his Elegies 'one of the strangest documents of the human mind', and W.H. Auden singled him out as a 'really remarkable poet'. Womack's versioning of the Elegies shows how this harsh poem of sex and old age can speak to our own contemporary, collapsing world...(From the publisher)...

(P/B) COMPLETE POEMS
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0079

George Seferis is the great Greek poet of the twentieth century, a classic among classics. The formal and thematic versatility of his work, its decisively modern inflections, call Eliot's poems to mind: fastidious and expansive in equal measure. Like Eliot's deep-rooted Modernism, Seferis's never loses touch with the stones and inscriptions of the past. He writes for his and our time, poetically and politically alert: culture can free us or, misapplied, can trammel us. Aptly described as 'the unlocker of ancient stones and sea voyages', Se...

(P/B) RUNAWAY
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0086

A new collection of poetry from one of our most renowned contemporary poets, Pulitzer Prize winner Jorie Graham. In her formidable and clairvoyant new collection, Runaway, Jorie Graham deepens her vision of our futurity. What of us will survive? Identity may be precarious, but perhaps love is not? Keeping pace with the desperate runaway of climate change, social disruption, our new mass migrations, she struggles to reimagine a habitable present - a now - in which we might endure, wary, undaunted, ever-inventive, 'counting silently towards ...

(P/B) COLLECTED POEMS
VOLUME I : 1909-1939
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0081

Described by Thom Gunn as 'an ideal edition', this first volume of William Carlos Williams' Collected Poems is a vivid account of his formation as a poet, his time in Europe, and his interactions with the major players of Modernism (he never quite appreciated that he was one of them). The poems are printed in the order of original publication, starting with The Tempers (1913) and ending with Poems 1936-1939. Williams remains one of the most popular American poets of all time, Whitman's heir but with a voice wholly unlike Whitman's: provinc...

NEW POEMS / NEUE GEDICHTE
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0016

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926), one of the greatest German-language poets, is among the key figures in modern Western literature. The Neue Gedichte (New Poems of 1907-8 are some of the freshest and most accessible of his works. For some months during 1905-6 Rilke had acted as secretary to Auguste Rodin, and the great sculptor's example can be seen in the shape and texture of the Neue Gedichte. 'Rilke,' writes John Bayley in his introduction, 'is one of those rare poets who seem not so much to create as to reveal.' Stephen Cohn's outstandin...

(P/B) ARROW
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0085

Winner of the Seamus Heaney First Collection Poetry Prize 2021. Longlisted for the Michael Murphy Memorial Poetry Prize 2021. Arrow is a debut volume extraordinary in ambition, range and achievement. At its centre is 'Dear, beloved', a more-than-elegy for her younger sister who died suddenly: in the two years she took to write the poem, much else came into play: 'it was my hope to write the mood of elegy rather than an elegy proper,' following the example of the great elegists including Milton, to whose Paradise Lost she listened during th...

(P/B) THE BARBARIANS ARRIVE TODAY
A CAVAFY READER
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0083

Expertly translated from Modern Greek, this edition presents Cavafy's finest poems, short creative prose and autobiographical writings, offering unique insights into his life's work. Born in Alexandria, Egypt, Constantine Petrou Cavafy (1863-1933) was a minor civil servant who self-published and distributed his poems among friends; he is now regarded as one of the most significant poets of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, an influence on writers across generations and languages. The broad, rich world of the Mediterranean ...

(P/B) BRODSKY: COLLECTED POEMS IN ENGLISH
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0004

Five years after the death of Joseph Brodsky, the heir of the generation of Pasternak, Mandelstam, Tsvetaeva and especially Akhmatova, this Collected Poems in English for the first time collects all his translated and original poems in English. It confirms his unique place in our literature. His abiding addiction to the English language, and particularly to the Metaphysical poets, was manifest in the industry with which he read and translated in both directions. Both his own efforts to translate his work, and the poems he wrote directly in...

(H/B) SELECTED POEMS
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0070

Kenneth Koch is grouped with John Ashbery, Frank O'Hara and James Schuyler, a grouping which tends to underplay the real differences between each poet's projects; their collaborations were inventive because of their differences, not their similarities, and what marks all four is the ability to work at tangents without ever quite abandoning the circumference. Koch started writing when he was five, under the influence of Shelley, whom he outgrew in his teens, taking doses of Byron and eventually of Eliot. As a soldier in the Philippines, he ...

(P/B) SELECTED POEMS
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0082

Frank O'Hara (1926-66) is among the most delightful and radical poets of the twentieth century. He is celebrated for his apparently unpremeditated poems, autobiographical and immediate ('any time, any place'). This is not the whole O'Hara: he may have scribbled poems on serviettes, but others he worked on with intense concentration, creating sequences that are inexhaustibly nuanced, full of surprise, heartbreak and laughter. There are analogies between his work and that of the painters he championed, Pollock, Kline and de Kooning among the...

(P/B) WHY I'M NOT A PAINTER
AND OTHER POEMS
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0069

"... a remarkable new poetry - both modest and monumental, with something basically usable about it - not only for poets in search of a voice of their own but for the reader who turns to poetry as a last resort in trying to juggle the contradictory components of modern life into something like a liveable space." -John Ashbery Frank O'Hara composed poems 'any time, any place', collaborating with - or directly inspired by - a vibrant circle of artists, dancers, musicians and poets. For O'Hara, the city was a place of endless possibility, an...

(P/B) COLERIDGE: SELECTED POEMS

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0023

"...that hour I would wish'd to die. If thro'the shuddering midnight I had sent From the dark dungeon of the Tower time-rent That fearful voice, a famish'd Father's cry - Lest in some aftre moment aught more mean Might stamp me mortal! A triumphant shout Black Horror scream'd, and all her goblin rout Diminish'd shrunk from the withering scene!" -- from "To the Author of The Robbers" In this unusual selection, one of the great poet-critics of the twentieth century encounters and re-appraises the greatest poet-critic of the nineteenth.

(P/B) SELECTED POEMS
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0022

The great Russian poet Alexander Blok (1880-1921) lived through his country's savage wars and radical traumas, trying to welcome the new order. But there was no space in it for his kind of imagination. His poem 'The Twelve' has claims to being the first great poem of the Russian Revolution. It remains enigmatic, the language elevated, the tone celebratory, even mystical in some respects. No wonder that Mayakovsky, bringing Revolution into the very language and form of his poetry, wrote against Blok and the old forms, answering 'The twelve'...

(P/B) SEASONAL DISTURBANCES
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0074

Following her groundbreaking 2014 debut "An Aviary of Small Birds", Karen McCarthy Woolf returns with "Seasonal Disturbances". Set against a backdrop of ecological and emotional turbulence, these poems are charged yet meditative explorations of nature, the city, and the self. A sinister CEO presides over a dystopian hinterland where private detectives investigate crimes against hollyhocks; Halcyon is discovered as a dead kingfisher, washed up on an Italian beach. Lyrical and inventive, McCarthy Woolf's poems test classic and contemporary f...

(P/B) SONNETS TO ORPHEUS AND LETTERS TO A YOUNG POET
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0018

'They are perhaps most mysterious, even to me,' wrote Rainer Maria Rilke of the Sonnets to Orpheus, 'in the manner in which they arrived and imposed themselves on me - the most puzzling dictation I have ever received and taken down.' Rilke, born in Prague in 1875, died at Valmont near Montreux in the last days of 1926. His Sonnets to Orpheus may appear comparatively simple, even casual, at first reading, but they are crammed with content which resonates far beyond the familiar legend of Orpheus and Eurydice. The Sonnets have an astonishing...

(P/B) ELEMENTARY MORALITY
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0059

Elementary Morality, Raymond Queneau's last book, is in many ways his most momentous. Here he distils the work of a lifetime: as Surrealist, flaneur, mathematician, poet, student of Eastern philosophy, experimental novelist and co-founder of OuLiPo, the 'workshop for potential literature'. Its 131 texts in the form of quennets - an invented form - and prose poems generated by the hexagrams of the I Ching, are a remarkable meditation on landscape, death, war, Surrealism, and memory, at once playful, mysterious and illuminating.

(P/B) THE COLLECTED POEMS 1957-1987
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0010

"The year's doors open like those of language, toward the unknown. Last night you told me tomorrow we shall have to think up signs, sketch a landscape, fabricate a plan on the double page of day and paper" -- from "January First", translated by Elizabeth Bishop When Octavio Paz (1914-1998) died, Mexico lost a tribe of writers. He was many poets, from the surrealist disciple of Andre Breton to the admiring imitator of Alexander Pope; now a radical experimentalist, now an autobiographer and confess...

(P/B) DUINO ELEGIES
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0017

With all his contradictions, Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926) is one of the fathers of modern literature and the Duino Elegies one of its great monuments. Begun in 1912 but not completed until 1922, they are 'modern' in almost every sense the word has acquired; yet Rilke was by temperament anti-modern, a snob and a romantic. He was devoted to the three A's: Architecture, Agriculture, Aristocracy. The Duino Elegies aroused real excitement among English readers when the now-dated Leishman/Spender versions first appeared in the 1930s. Stephen C...

(P/B) CARTOGRAPHER TRIES TO MAP A WAY TO ZION
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0080

In his new collection, acclaimed Jamaican poet Kei Miller dramatises what happens when one system of knowledge, one method of understanding place and territory, comes up against another. We watch as the cartographer, used to the scientific methods of assuming control over a place by mapping it ('I never get involved / with the muddy affairs of land'), is gradually compelled to recognise - even to envy - a wholly different understanding of place, as he tries to map his way to the rastaman's eternal city of Zion. As the book unfolds the cart...

(P/B) WAITRESS IN FALL
SELECTED POEMS
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0078

For over three decades, the work of Kristin Omarsdottir has thrived in the vanguard of Icelandic literature. Waitress in Fall offers anglophone readers the first substantial selection of her poems in translation. Spanning thirty years and seven collections - from her first to her latest - this wide-reaching introduction celebrates a vital voice in contemporary European poetry. Kristin Omarsdottir's work resists the sweet, the neat or the certain. Her poems delight in the lush mess of actual life, in its hands and fingers, lemons and clocks...
