ΑΥΤΟΠΡΟΣΩΠΟΓΡΑΦΙΑ ΣΕ ΚΥΡΤΟ ΚΑΤΟΠΤΡΟ (ΔΙΓΛΩΣΣΗ ΕΚΔΟΣΗ)
Εκδότης: ΝΕΦΕΛΗ
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 2990-0377

Η Αυτοπροσωπογραφία σε Κυρτό Κάτοπτρο -"η Έρημη Χώρα της μεταμοντέρνας αμερικανικής ποίησης", όπως χαρακτηριστικά την αποκαλεί ο κριτικός Harold Bloom- είναι η πιο ολοκληρωμένη και σημαντική, αν και αμφιλεγόμενη, ποιητική σύνθεση του John Ashbery. Όταν εκδόθηκε το 1975 απέσπασε ταυτόχρονα το Βραβείο Pulitzer, το πολύ σημαντικό National Book Award και το έγκυρο National Book Critics' Circle Award. Αν η ποίηση, όπως τη συνέλαβε ο Αυγουστίνος, είναι το "κάτοπτρο - το speculum του κόσμου", ο Άσμπερυ διαλέγει ένα κυρτό κάτοπτρο για να μιλήσει ...

Κανείς δεν αμφιβάλλει σήμερα ότι ο John Ashbery είναι από τους σημαντικότερους ποιητές της αγγλικής γλώσσας. Για αρκετά χρόνια όμως ήταν ο ποιητής που συγκέντρωνε τις πιο αντιφατικές κρίσεις, σε σημείο μάλιστα υπερβολικό. Πρωτοφανής και σαφώς μεγάλης και κρίσιμης δύναμης για τους θαυμαστές του, κοινός φενακιστής για τους πρώτους επικριτές του. Υπήρξαν αυτοί που τον αναγνώρισαν ως τον πιο άξιο συνεχιστή της παράδοσης του Eliot, του Pound, του Stevens, και αυτοί που τον απέρριψαν ως δανδή που δεν έχει να προσφέρει παρά μια ανούσια ή στην καλ...

(P/B) YOUR NAME HERE
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0001

Everyone wants to subscribe to a deed of heroism, especially if the risks are largely imaginary. The headline announcing a daring deed; in the tourist shop a poster promising a spectacular, sun-drenched corrida, and there is a space between the legendary bullfighters for one more sequined matador: '(Your Name Here)'. That is how the individual, whom Hardy declared must at heart remain 'unread eternally,' manages to read out of the isolated 'I' into other selves. It does not appropriate, it does not exercise negative capability, but rather ...

(P/B) HOTEL LAUTREAMONT
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0052

The Count of Lautreamont - a nineteenth-century poet about whom little is known, except that he spent his brief adult life in various hotels in Paris, checking out of his transient existence at the age of 24 - is one of the forgotten presences alive in John Ashbery's collection. Hotel Lautreamont includes the poems and sequences he wrote during composition of his enormous poem Flow Chart, published in 1991 to great critical puzzlement and acclaim. The title poem 'experiments' in pantoum form; and there are other demanding formal challenges...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0002

John Ashbery is the author of more than twenty books of poetry. He is the recipient of many honours, including the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and a MacArthur 'genius' award.

(P/B) A WORLDLY COUNTRY
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0050

John Ashbery's new collection speaks from the haunted, ambiguous cities of the twenty-first century. These are the landscapes of the worldly country we have created, both ominous and absurd. Perspectives dissolve into dazzle. The clock is ticking: we are on the wrong set and the cameras are rolling. Ashbery's supple, vigorous idiom conjures an unpredictable world, astonished by moments of piercing directness: the pause to share a winter pear, the sudden apprehension that the places we left fallow 'will be cultivated by another'. A Worldly ...

(P/B) CAN YOU HEAR, BIRD
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0055

After John Ashbery's 216-page poem Flow Chart (1991) and the munificence of Hotel Lautramont (1992) and And the Stars were Shining (1994), Can You Hear, Bird provides an A to Y of poems, moments in which voices, images and tones come in for Ashbery's wily attentions. The poems are generally short. But when we get to T, 'Tuesday Evening' occurs. Tuesday evenings are long in Ashbery's America. This Tuesday begins in tight rhymed quatrains; as theevening extends, the verse relaxes to elicit and swallow up more and more, until only rhyme pins ...

(P/B) PLANISPHERE
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0060

Even after half a century of amazing readers, John Ashbery continues to delight and challenge with his inventiveness. Planisphere takes the reader on a dizzying journey in the company of a virtuoso and sorcerer who makes the commonplace magical, disorientates and teases, and conjures glimpses of ‘horizons... bright and anxious’: ‘a space like a dream’. Planisphere restores to us a sense of joy and unease at the untried possibilities of language and of the world we take for granted. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) WAKEFULNESS
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0053

"Everything was spotless in the little house of our desire, the clock ticked on and on, happy about being apprenticed to eternity." 'Little by little the idea of the true way returned to me,' John Ashbery writes early in his new collection. Each sense is wakened up. So are all the spirits. Many whispers, voices chantant dans la coupole: passions, leaves, loves, flutes, insects, paintings, apologies, partings. We are in history, and in the present, too - in buildings, churches, homes, cars and trains, making our way to Baltimore and Buchar...

GIRLS ON THE RUN
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0000

'Did you read that book I was telling you about? Ach, it concerns puberty.' Girls on the Run, a poem in twenty-one chapters, is written 'after Henry Darger' (1892-1972), the 'outsider' American artist who toiled for decades, tracing images from comic strips, colouring books and other ephemeral sources, creating an enormous illustrated novel about the adventures of a plucky band of little girls. Ashbery provides a species of verse translation of Darger's haunted, faux-innocent images of tumbling, frolicking, fleeing children. 'An illustrati...

(P/B) QUICK QUESTION
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0068

In Quick Question John Ashbery extends an invitation to readers to accompany him into the extraordinary worlds of the everyday, experienced through the box of tricks that is language. He revels in twist and transformation, the constant mutability of words and things: 'Whatever stops playing is the enemy of the incomplete'. He can stop us in our tracks with the accuracy of his perception: 'Somewhere in America someone is trying to figure out / how to pay for this'. Aware of the paradoxes of his own writing, he teases us with questions: 'Is ...

(P/B) COLLECTED POEMS, 1991-2000
Εκδότης: CARCANET
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3987-0077

After his spectacular early career, in which he became one of the best-loved and most controversial poets of his time, and his radical and productive middle years, John Ashbery continued effortlessly finding new directions in the 1990s and into the twenty-first century, writing playfully, inventively. His language is exquisitely attuned to mundane reality, transforming it. Here in a single, substantial, authoritative, and helpfully annotated volume are seven complete books from this crucial period, starting with Flow Chart (1991), a tour d...
