Selected Poems
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0103

'The ancients taught me how to sound modern,' A.E. Stallings said in an interview. 'They showed me that technique was not the enemy of urgency, but the instrument.' For her, 'technique' is rooted in traditions of strict forms and metres, an interest that sets her apart as modern - and American - in challenging ways, for being on the face of it old-fashioned, yet ambitiously experimental among the forms she uses. Raised in Atlanta, Georgia, she lives in Athens, Greece. Her poems come out of life's dailiness - as a wife, mother, teacher, an ...

(P/B) A MARGINAL SEA
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0094

A Marginal Sea is written from the vantage point of Ynys M?n/Anglesey, which is both on the edge of Wales and in a marginal sea of the Atlantic Ocean - the island is imagined here as a site of archipelagic connection with other places and histories, where the spaces of dream and digital technology are interwoven with the everyday. Skoulding's poems take their readers into new worlds: we come to terms with the oystercatcher's 'muscle of belonging'; we chart the cross-cultural coordinates of 'Newborough Warren with Map of Havana' ('and it's ...

(H/B) MARIGOLD AND ROSE
A FICTION
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0095

"Marigold was absorbed in her book; she had gotten as far as the V." So begins Marigold and Rose, Louise Gl?ck's astonishing chronicle of the first year in the life of twin girls. Imagine a fairy tale that is also a multigenerational saga; a piece for two hands that is also a symphony; a poem that is also, in the spirit of Kafka's The Metamorphosis, an incandescent act of autobiography. Here are the elements you'd expect to find in a story of infant twins: Father and Mother, Grandmother and Other Grandmother, bath time and naptime-but more...

(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) Baby Schema
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0100

In Isabel Galleymore's second collection, the adorable other is not just an imagined future child, but also a tree frog, a weather-worn statue and often the speaker herself, who dreams of quitting adulthood and an endangered world. 'Mother Earth' is less an entity to be revered than a command to care-giving. Lyrics and syllabically-constrained fables examine the play and power involved in creating new life, whether biologically or via cartoonists' animation. Galleymore hones in on cuteness and its relationships to hyper-capitalism and envi...

(P/B) The Miraculous Season
Selected Poems
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0101

A Poetry Book Society Spring Special Commendation 2024 In the archives of the Houghton Library at Harvard blazes the incandescent work of V.R. 'Bunny' Lang (1924-56), the American poet and playwright whose name has been all but erased from literary history. The fiery nerve centre of the literary scene around mid-century Harvard, and best friend of the iconic New York School poet Frank O'Hara - who referred to her as 'one of our finest poets' - Lang herself has languished in the shadows of American poetry for too long. This book brings into...

(P/B) The Silence
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0102

A Poetry Book Society Spring Recommendation 2024 'The days have no names. The day they count the dead, the day they closed the doors, turned off the lights. We're still here in the silence, hearing tree-talk, the wind's secrets, the company of birds.' ('The Year of the Dead') The poems in Gillian Clarke's The Silence begin during lockdown, to whose silences Clarke listens so attentively that other voices emerge. As the book progresses, that silence deepens, in the poems about her mother and childhood, about the Great War and its aftermaths...

(P/B) Eleanor Among the Saints
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0099

A Poetry Book Society Spring Recommendation 2024 In her second collection, Mann wrestles with the questions and possibilities raised when trans identity, faith and the limits of myth and language intersect and are tested. Eleanor Among the Saints is a study in the queer joy found in counter-factuals and fantasy, shaped through the prism of the disputed story of Eleanor Rykener, a medieval trans woman, seamstress and sex worker.

The Poetry Book Society Spring Choice 2024 'It is hard to hurt and then explain the hurt away / so as not to hurt anyone. But have you seen / my life?' ('Child of Lir') The lives depicted by Victoria Kennefick alter, shatter and recombine in stunning monologues, innovative hybrid forms and piercing lyrics: her second book Egg/Shell is a diptych, a double album, which explores early motherhood and miscarriage, and the impact of a spouse's gender transition and the dissolution of a marriage. Acclaimed as one of the boldest poetic voices to e...

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) 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) TO 2040
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0096

Winner of the Laurel Prize 2023 A Publishers Weekly Book of the Year 2023 To 2040 begins with question masquerading as fact: 'Are we / extinct yet. Who owns / the map.' These visionary new poems reveal Graham as historian, cartographer, prophet, plotting an apocalyptic world where rain must be translated, silence sings louder than speech, and wired birds parrot recordings of their extinct ancestors. In one poem, the speaker is warned by a clairvoyant, 'the American experiment will end in 2030'. Graham exposes a potentially inevitable futur...

Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0097

Shortlisted for the T.S. Eliot Prize 2023. Shortlisted for the Forward Prize for Best Collection 2023. In his disquieting third collection The Ink Cloud Reader, Kit Fan takes enormous risks linguistically, formally and visually to process the news of a sudden illness and the threat of mortality, set against the larger chaos of his beloved city Hong Kong and our broken planet. These shape-shifting poems are sensitive to anxiety and to beauty, questioning the turbulent climate of our time while celebrating the power of ink - of reading and w...

(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...

(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...

SELECTED AND NEW POEMS
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0076

In Odd Blocks Kay Ryan, the acclaimed American poet, presents her work to European readers for the first time. The book includes twenty-one new poems, seven of them first published here. Ryan's flamboyant imagination sparks in spare and elegant verse. 'Edges,' she has said, 'are the most powerful parts of the poem. The more edges you have the more power you have.' These poems take by surprise, and increase in resonance. (From the publisher)...

(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) IN THE QUAKER HOTEL
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0089

In the title poem, the speaker sits at the window of a small hotel room. The room is a holding zone, a temporary stopping-place between memory and possibility. In the Quaker Hotel is full of questions about the world. Rooted in nature, the poems are fearful for it. They move out through identifiable landscapes (Merseyside, north Wales, Nova Scotia, southern France) to off-kilter, tilted places beyond our immediate reality. We are temporary guests in these places and in our own lives. Who will come after us, how will they see things: 'who w...
