Dylan Thomas, John Goodby, “The Collected Poems of Dylan Thomas: The Centenary Edition”

2014 | pages: 513 | ISBN: 0297865692 | EPUB | 0,7 mb
Like Shakespeare and Joyce before him, Dylan Thomas expanded our sense of what the English language can do.
Rhythmically forceful yet subtly musical and full of memorable lines, his poems are anthology favourites; his ‘play for voices’ Under Milk Wood a modern classic. Much loved by The Beatles and Bob Dylan, he is a cultural icon and continues to inspire artists today.
This new edition, released to commemorate the centenary of Thomas’s birth, collects more of his poems together in a single volume than ever before. With recently discovered material and accessible critique from Dylan Thomas expert John Goodby, it looks at Thomas’s body of work in a fresh light, taking us to the beating heart of his poetry.

Zong! (Wesleyan Poetry Series) by M. NourbeSe Philip

English | Aug. 15, 2011 | ISBN: 0819571695 | 225 Pages | PDF | 4 MB
In November, 1781, the captain of the slave ship Zong ordered that some 150 Africans be murdered by drowning so that the ship’s owners could collect insurance monies. Relying entirely on the words of the legal decision Gregson v. Gilbert—the only extant public document related to the massacre of these African slaves—Zong! tells the story that cannot be told yet must be told. Equal parts song, moan, shout, oath, ululation, curse, and chant, Zong! excavates the legal text. Memory, history, and law collide and metamorphose into the poetics of the fragment. Through the innovative use of fugal and counterpointed repetition, Zong! becomes an anti-narrative lament that stretches the boundaries of the poetic form, haunting the spaces of forgetting and mourning the forgotten.

John Donne and Contemporary Poetry: Essays and Poems by Judith Scherer Herz

English | 22 Oct. 2017 | ISBN: 3319552996 | 221 Pages | PDF | 1.86 MB
This collection of poems and essays by both poets and scholars explores how John Donne’s writing has entered into the language, the imagination, and the navigation of erotic and spiritual desires and experiences of twentieth- and twenty-first-century writers. The chapters chart a winding path from a description of the Donne and Contemporary Poetry Project at Fordham University to an encounter with the Holy Sonnets to a set of modern holy sonnets and then through the work of a poet who used Donne’s Devotions on Emergent Occasions to chart his own dying. There are further poems on sickness and recovery, an essay on Donne and disease that brings in the work of an Australian poet, and several chapters of poems with various Donnean echoes. Of the final four chapters, one places Donne in relation to another poet and one to the Psalms, followed by two chapters on Donne’s speech figures and his poetics.

Mahmoud Darwish, Mohammad Shaheen, “Why Did You Leave the Horse Alone?”

2014 | pages: 144 | ISBN: 1843915197 | EPUB | 0,9 mb
A stunning new translation of Mahmoud Darwish’s intertwining poetic narrative, presenting a profound portrait of the Palestinian people, the human condition, and Darwish’s own hopes and dreams
Since Mahmoud Darwish’s death, his poetic writings continue to be read by an audience in awe. This is a collection of autobiographical poetry designed to give an insight into the wider human condition. Darwish explores the meaning of life, identity, and the impact of exile. Hailed as the most important Arab poet of the modern day, Darwish’s voice has come to represent a generation and the Palestinian people in the midst of the tense political situation in the Middle East. While Darwish explored themes of lost Eden, exile, and life after death, he resisted classification as a spokesperson for the Palestinian cause, and refused to use his art for purely political ends. Darwish’s was a nomadic existence, much of it spent in international exile, and these experiences lent his writing a cosmopolitan edge—they partake of a worldwide mythology.

Three Hundred Verses: Musings on Life, Love and Renunciation by Bhartrihari, translated by A. N. D. Haksar

English | September 20, 2017 | ISBN: 0670090069 | EPUB | 336 pages | 2 MB
Young, doe-eyed maidens beguile lovelorn men. Timeless wisdom is dispensed through brief, colourful vignettes. The bounty of the earth is celebrated even as the seasons bear witness to the amorous play of lovers. In Three Hundred Verses, Bhartrihari, one of the greatest Sanskrit poets of all time, brilliantly expounds on our most enduring concerns and dilemmas: living, loving and leaving. Although composed centuries ago, the full force of his genius is abundantly evident in these poems, bursting with lush imagery and brimming with deep philosophical musings.
Covering a wide range of themes-from the first stirrings of young love to the challenges of accepting life s transience-these verses are sure to resonate with contemporary readers. By turns playful and wise, A.N.D. Haksar s gorgeous and accessible translation captures the verve, acuity and erotic charge of Bhartrihari s most significant work.
