(P/B) A SEASON IN HELL AND THE DRUNKEN BOAT
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0010

New Directions is pleased to announce the relaunch of the long-celebrated bilingual edition of Rimbaud's A Season In Hell & The Drunken Boat - a personal poem of damnation as well as a plea to be released from "the examination of his own depths." Rimbaud originally distributed A Season In Hell to friends as a self-published booklet, and soon afterward, at the age of nineteen, quit poetry altogether. New Directions' edition was among the first to be published in the U.S., and quickly became a classic. Rimbaud's famous poem "The Drunken Boat...

(P/B) THE CANTOS OF EZRA POUND
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0032

Now available for the first time in paperback, "The Cantos" is the most important epic poem of the twentieth century. Delmore Schwartz said about "The Cantos": "They are one of the touchstones of modern poetry." William Carlos Williams said: "Pound discloses history by its odor, by the feel of it - in the words; fuses it with the words, present and past, to make his Cantos. Make them". Since the 1969 revised edition, the Italian Cantos LXXII and LXXIII (as well as a 1966 fragment concluding the work) have been added. Pound's recently found...

(P/B) PATERSON
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0053

Paterson is both a place - the New Jersey city in whom the person (the poet's own life) and the public (the history of the region) are combined. Originally four books (published individually between 1946 and 1951), the structure of Paterson (in Dr. Williams' words) "follows the course of the Passaic River" from above the great falls to its entrance into the sea. The unexpected Book Five, published in 1958, affirms the triumphant life of the imagination, in spite of age and death. This revised edition has been meticulously re-edited by Chri...

(P/B) VALE AVE
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0066

Vale Ave - Latin for "Farewell, Hail" - is a hymn to Eros that unfolds as a gorgeous palimpsest of eternal recurrence and reincarnation, charting the course of two lovers who each seek the other across cultures, myths, and centuries. Vale Ave is alchemical - "mystery and portent, yes, but at the same time," as H. D. writes, "there is Resurrection and the hope of Paradise." (From the publisher) "Ave and vale but the parting came before the greeting, it was vale, ave, keep the wine till the last, I hold this cup, I need not taste this sleep...

(P/B) SATANTANGO
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0033

Already famous as the inspiration for the filmmaker Bela Tarr's six-hour masterpiece, Satantango is proof, as the spellbinding, bleak, and hauntingly beautiful book has it, that "the devil has all the good times". The story of Satantango, spread over a couple of days of endless rain, focuses on the dozen remaining inhabitants of an unnamed isolated hamlet: failures stuck in the middle of nowhere. Schemes, crimes, infidelities, hopes of escape, and above all trust and its constant betrayal are Krasznahorkai's meat. "At the center of Satanta...

(P/B) CAT POEMS
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0056

A gorgeous gift edition, dedicated to the mystery, grace, and charm of the cat Across the ages, cats have provided their adopted humans with companionship, affection, mystery, and innumerable metaphors; cats cast a mirror on their beholders; cats endlessly captivate and hypnotize, frustrate and delight. And to poets, in particular, these enigmatic creatures are the most delightful and beguiling of muses (Charles Baudelaire: "the sole source of amusement in one's lodgings") as they go about purring, prowling, hunting, playing, meowing, and...

(H/B) NOX
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0057

Anne Carson’s haunting and beautiful Nox is her first book of poetry in five years - a unique, illustrated, accordion-fold-out book in a box. Nox is an epitaph in the form of a book, a facsimile of a handmade book Anne Carson wrote and created after the death of her brother. The poem describes coming to terms with his loss through the lens of her translation of "Poem 101" by Catallus "for his brother who died in the Troad." Nox is a work of poetry, but arrives as a fascinating and unique physical object. Carson pasted old letters, family ...

(P/B) SPRING AND ALL
FACSIMILE EDITION
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0065

Voted by The New York Times as one of the greatest poems of the twentieth century, Spring and All is a manifesto of the imagination - a hybrid of alternating sections of prose and free verse that crystalizes in dramatic, energetic, and beautifully cryptic statements of how language recreates the world. Spring and All contains some of Williams's best known poetry, including Section I, which opens, "By the road to the contagious hospital" (now commonly known by the title "Spring and All"), and Section XXII, where Williams penned his most fam...

(P/B) A HERMIT'S GUIDE TO HOME ECONOMICS
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0072

A Hermit's Guide to Home Economics combines three long poems Robert Lax composed on the Island of Patmos, where he lived apart from the world. Lax writes humorously about his "hermit" life, as if he were King Solomon doing a stand-up routine. But he also writes like a mystic whose surroundings speak to him, and he uses the whole field of the page to explore the full potential of the word as image and the poet as citizen. (From the publisher)...

(H/B) ENVELOPE POEMS
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0059

Although a very prolific poet, Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) published fewer than a dozen poems. Instead, she created small handmade books. In her later years, she stopped producing these, but she continued to write a great deal, and at her death she left behind many poems, drafts, and letters. It is among the makeshift and fragile manuscripts of Dickinson's later writings that we find the envelope poems gathered here. These manuscripts on envelopes (recycled by the poet with marked New England thrift) were written with the full powers of he...

(P/B) LOVE POEMS
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0027

A beautiful new gift book of Pablo Neruda's greatest love poems for all occasions. Charged with sensuality and passion, Pablo Neruda's love poems caused a scandal when published anonymously in 1952. In later editions, these verses became the most celebrated of the Noble Prize winner's oeuvre, captivating readers with earthbound images that reveal in gentle lingering lines an erotic re-imagining of the world through the prism of a lover's body: "today our bodies came vast, they grew to the edge of the world / and rolled melting / into a sin...

(H/B) WOOLGATHERING
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0035

In this small, luminous memoir, the National Book Award winner Patti Smith revisits the most sacred experiences of her early years, with truths so vivid they border on the surreal. The author entwines her childhood self and its "clear, unspeakable joy" with memories both real and envisioned from her twenties on New York's MacDougal Street, the street of cafe's. Woolgathering was completed, in Michigan, on Patti Smith's 45th birthday and originally published in a slim volume from Raymond Foye's Hanuman Books. Twenty years later, New Directi...

(P/B) POEMS OF OSIP MANDELSTAM
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0043

Peter France writes in his foreword: "I have always been conscious that Mandelstam was an outstanding figure, arguably the outstanding Russian poet of the twentieth century. This is a personal selection from the poetry - poems that for one reason or another I wanted to translate. I have tried to make it reasonably representative of different strands and periods in his work, with a certain stress on the brilliant and fragmentary Voronezh poems." "The transparent one still sings to no avail, still swallow, Antigone, beloved girl..." (From th...

(P/B) WE MEET
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0074

The singular work of Kenneth Patchen has influenced poets, artists and political activists for decades. New Directions is proud to launch a Patchen revival beginning with omnibus editions of his unique compositions. We Meet highlights Patchen's more outlandish side and includes, like fabrics stitched into a crazy quilt, Because It Is, A Letter to God, Poemscapes, Hurrah For Anything, and Aflame & Afun of Walking Faces. "Because to understand one must begin somewhere," opens Patchen's fabulous book of poems Because It Is: perhaps the most i...

(P/B) THE HOTEL YEARS
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0046

The Hotel Years gathers sixty-four feuilletons: on hotels; pains and pleasures; personalities; and the deteriorating international situation of the 1930s. Never before translated into English, these pieces begin in Vienna just at the end of the First War, and end in Paris near the outbreak of the Second World War. Roth, the great journalist of his day, needed journalism to survive: in his six-volume collected works in German, there are three of fiction and three of journalism. Beginning in 1921, Roth wrote mostly for the liberal Frankfurt...

(P/B) MEMOIRS
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0012

For the "old crocodile," as Williams called himself late in life, the past was always present, and so it is with his continual shifting and intermingling of times, places, and memories as he weaves this story. When Memoirs was first published in 1975, it created quite a bit of turbulence in the media--though long self-identified as a gay man, Williams' candor about his love life, sexual encounters, and drug use was found shocking in and of itself, and such revelations by America's greatest living playwright were called "a raw display of pr...

(P/B) BLASTS CRIES LAUGHTER
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0061

Fearless new poems by America's everyman bard. Lawrence Ferlinghetti's Blasts contains blasts, blessings, and curses in the vortex of today, taking its cues from the original little magazine, Blast (published by Wyndham Lewis with Ezra Pound in 1914-15), which helped create the modernist movement in literature and the visual arts. Ferlinghetti speaks for the poor, the forgotten, the beaten, and the bombed. (From the publisher) And speak to us in the poet's voice the voice of the people mixed with a wild soft laughter -...

IN THE AMERICAN GRAIN
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0024

Although admired by D. H. Lawrence, this modern classic went generally unnoticed during the years after its publication in 1925. Yet it is "a fundamental book, essential if one proposes to come to terms with American literature" (London Times Literary Supplement). William Carlos Williams was not a historian, but he was fascinated by the texture of American history. Beginning with Columbus's discovery of the Indies and moving on through Sir Walter Raleigh, Cotton Mather, Daniel Boone, George Washington, Ben Franklin, Aaron Burr, Edgar Allan...

(P/B) THE JOURNAL OF ALBION MOONLIGHT
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0064

Inspired by one of the finest lyrics in the English language, the anonymous, pre-Shakespearean Tom O'Bedlam: ("By a knight of ghosts and shadows / I am summoned am to tourney / Ten leagues beyond The wide world's end / Methinks it is no journey..."), Kenneth Patchen sets off on an allegorical journey to the furthest limits of love and murder, madness and sex. While on this disordered pilgrimage to H. Roivas (Heavenly Savior), various characters offer deranged responses, conveying an otherworldly, imaginative madness. A chronicle of violent...
