(P/B) THE CANTOS OF EZRA POUND
Εκδότης: NEW DIRECTIONS BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0032
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

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...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0053
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

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...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0061
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

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 -...

Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Gathered here are the gems of William Carlos Williams's astonishing achievements in poetry. Dramatic, energetic, beautiful, and true, this slim selection will delight any reader - The Red Wheelbarrow & Other Poems is a book to be treasured. (From the publisher) "Possibly no modern American poem is more widely known than Williams's 'The Red Wheelbarrow,' that tiny epiphany. Williams himself, not given to making high claims for his own work, considered this poem 'quite perfect.' If you look at the lingua franca of American poetry today - a ...

(P/B) LOVE POEMS

Δεν είναι διαθέσιμο αυτή τη στιγμή. Υπό την προϋπόθεση ύπαρξης αποθέματος στον εκδότη εξωτερικού, αποστέλλεται σε 3-5 εβδομάδες.

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...

Δεν είναι διαθέσιμο αυτή τη στιγμή. Υπό την προϋπόθεση ύπαρξης αποθέματος στον εκδότη εξωτερικού, αποστέλλεται σε 3-5 εβδομάδες.

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...

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...

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...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0069
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Poetry by Kazuko Shiraishi translated from the Japanese by Yumiko Tsumura. Sea, Land, Shadow, Kazuko Shiraishi's fourth collection with New Directions, contains work written from 1951 to 2015. Shiraishi, described by Donald Keene as "the outstanding poetic voice of her generation of disengagement in Japan," sees the world in a grain of rice and finds poetry in a mountain-road traffic jam. In the haunting title poem, she visits Iwanuma not long after the disastrous tsunami in 2011 and finds "no houses but a place where houses had been." Th...

Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

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. Kenneth Patchen's last words to New Directions' founder James Laughlin were, "When you find out which came first, the chicken or the egg, you write and tell me." Patchen answered the riddle by painting "picture-poems." The Walking-Away World contains three of his picture-poem collections: Wonderings, Hallelujah Anyway, and But ...

Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

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...

Δεν είναι διαθέσιμο αυτή τη στιγμή. Υπό την προϋπόθεση ύπαρξης αποθέματος στον εκδότη εξωτερικού, αποστέλλεται σε 3-5 εβδομάδες.

Describing the title of his latest Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of poetry and occasional prose pieces, Gary Snyder writes in his introductory note that Turtle Island is "the old new name for the continent, based on many creation myths of the people who have been here for millennia, and reapplied by some of them to 'North America' in recent years." The nearly five dozen poems in the book range from the lucid, lyrical, almost mystical to the mytho-biotic, while a few are frankly political. All, however, share a common vision: a rediscov...

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...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0054
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

Robert Walser wrote many of his manuscripts in a highly enigmatic, shrunken-down form. These narrow strips of paper (many of them written during his hospitalization in the Waldau sanatorium) covered with tiny ant-like markings only a millimeter or two high, came to light only after the author's death in 1956. At first considered a secret code, the microscripts were eventually discovered to be a radically miniaturized form of a Germanic script: a whole story could fit on the back of a business card. Selected from the six-volume German trans...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0019
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

In A Simple Heart, the poignant story that inspired Julian Barnes' Flaubert's Parrot, Felicite, a French housemaid, approaches a lifetime of servitude with human-scaled but angelic aplomb. No other author has imparted so much beauty and integrity to so modest an existence. Flaubert's "great saint" endures loss after loss by embracing the rich, true rhythms of life: the comfort of domesticity, the solace of the Church, and the depth of memory. This novella showcases Flaubert's perfectly honed realism: a delicate counterpoint of daily events...

Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

"A surreal semi-autobiographical blackbook record of a semi-mad period of my life, in that mindless, timeless state most romantics pass through, confusing flesh madonnas with spiritual ones." This is how the author describes this extraordinary expatriate novel. "To all those who have for several years sought to discredit the new American literature, Lawrence Ferlinghetti has just dealt a most powerful blow," wrote French critic Pierre Lepape in 1961 when Her was published in France as La Quatrieme Personne du Singulier. Calling it "a maste...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0075
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

From the appearance in 1936 of Kenneth Patchen's first book, the voice of this great poet has been protesting war and social injustice, satirizing the demeaning and barbarous inanities of our culture - entrancing us with an inexhaustible flow of humor and fantasy. With directness and simplicity, he has restored the exultation of romantic love to its ancient bardic place beside an awareness of God's living presence among all men. Kenneth Patchen assembled this collection in his fifty-fourth year. Since space was the only restricting factor ...

Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

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...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2928-0003
Περιορισμένη διαθεσιμότητα. Αποστέλλεται κατά κανόνα σε 2-6 εργάσιμες μέρες.

The title of this book is taken from Henry Miller's Into the Night Life and expresses the way Lawrence Ferlinghetti felt about these poems when he wrote them during a short period in the 1950s - as if they were, taken together, a kind of Coney Island of the mind, a kind of circus of the soul. A Coney Island of the Mind is not about the geographical Coney Island. The author intended it as a sustained metaphor or allegory of modern life. (From the publisher)...
