Ted Hughes Bestiary Faber & Faber, London

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Originally the medieval bestiary or book of animals set out to establish safe distinctions - between them and us - but Hughes' poetry works always in a contrary direction: showing what man and beast have in common, the reservoir from which we all draw. Alice Oswald's selection is arranged chronologically, with an eye to different books and styles, but equally to those poems that embody animals, rather than just describe them. Some poems are here because, although not strictly speaking animal, they become so in the process of writing; and in keeping with the bestiary tradition there are plenty of imaginary animals - all concentratedly coming about their business. The resulting selection is subtly responsive to a central aspect of Hughes' achievement, while offering room to some wonderful overlooked poems, and to 'those that have the wildest tunes.'

Walter de la Mare, Short Stories for Children Giles De La Mare Publishers

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The publication of "Short Stories for Children" celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of Walter de la Mare's death. It is also the culmination of a major literary enterprise. For many people, Walter de la Mare (1873-1956) is as great a writer of fiction as of poetry. But, the majority of his short stories, of which there are a hundred, have long been unavailable. "Short Stories" brings them all together in three volumes in the first comprehensive collection to be published. The third and last volume, "Short Stories for Children", starts with "Broomsticks and Other Tales" of 1925, with its twelve stories, and continues with "The Lord Fish" of 1933 with seven stories. It includes three distinctive stories, 'Pigtails, Ltd', 'The Thief' and 'A Nose', that have never been reprinted since they originally appeared in Broomsticks. Quirky, disparate, unpredictable, acutely observed, sometimes frightening, and often preoccupied with states of mind and personal identity, these stories have much in common with the adult stories. Some of them are peopled with giants, witches, kind elves, evil and spiteful fairies, and imprisoned maidens in castles, but most are not. We find ourselves in railway trains, a mansion in the City of London, another Elizabethan one in a mysterious tract of country, a remote farm house near the sea, a waterlogged forest, a drawing-room being watched by a fly; and, among other things, we encounter a wise monkey, a haunted cat, a fish magician, a baron transmogrified into a donkey, a thief desperate to be burgled, a man who believes he has a wax nose, and a godmother celebrating her 350th birthday. As in de la Mare's poems, everyday reality may at any time become undercut by disturbing uncertainty and dark, though not always malign, forces. A full understanding of the poems and stories is impossible without knowledge of both. Vivid and timeless, Bold's original woodcut designs and Rex Whistler's original engravings have been used to illustrate the two parts of the book.

In the 18th century the changing attitude toward man's place in society came to be viewed with an essentially democratic spirit. This mood was expressed in the plays, novels and poems of writers such as Lillo, Richardson, Godwin, and Wordsworth, who presented a tragic vision of the mundane life of the common man, the tragic mode that was later advanced by Ibsen, Hauptmann, Strindberg and Arthur Miller.

Thomas Hardy (1840-1928) remains one of the best loved of the great English poets. Hardy thought of himself as a poet all his life, although his poetic career only flowered after he had retired from novel-writing in his mid-fifties. Over the next thirty years he wrote the poems that have established him as one of the great and most enduringly popular English poets of the twentieth century. His verse touches all the common themes of human existence: birth, childhood, love, marriage, ageing, death. If Hardy's age brings anything to them, it is an old man's ironic and elegiac sense that in life hopes are likely to be defeated and losses sustained, and that the world was not designed for human happiness. This collection is prepared by Samuel Hynes, editor of the Oxford English Texts edition of The Complete Poetical Works of Thomas Hardy, and selected from the Oxford Authors critical edition. The introduction and notes illuminate Hardy's central place in the tradition of English poetry. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.


Juvenal and Persius - 2842368894

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

The bite and wit of two of antiquity's best satirists are captured here in a new Loeb Classical Library edition, a vivid and vigorous translation facing the Latin text. Persius (34-62 CE) and Juvenal (writing maybe 60 years later) were heirs to the style of Latin verse satire developed by Lucilius and Horace, a tradition mined in Susanna Braund's introduction and notes. Her notes also give guidance to the literary and historical allusions that pepper Persius's and Juvenal's satirical poems--which were clearly aimed at a sophisticated urban audience. Both poets adopt the mask of an angry man, and sharp criticism of the society in which they live is combined with flashes of sardonic humor in their satires. Whether targeting common and uncommon vices, the foolishness of prayers, the abuse of power by emperors and the Roman elite, the folly and depravity of Roman wives, or decadence, materialism, and corruption, their tone is generally one of righteous indignation. Juvenal and Persius are seminal as well as stellar figures in the history of satirical writing. Juvenal especially had a lasting influence on English writers of the Renaissance and succeeding centuries.

Likenesses Casemate

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Translation, illustration and interpretation have at least two things in common. They all begin when sense is made in the act of reading: that is where illustrative images and explanatory words begin to form. And they all ask to be understood in relation to the works from which they have arisen: reading them is a matter of reading readings. Likenesses explores this palimpsestic realm, with examples from Dante to the contemporary sculptor Rachel Whiteread. The complexities that emerge are different from Empsonian ambiguity or de Man's unknowable infinity of signification: here, meaning dawns and fades as the hologrammic text is filled out and flattened by successive encounters. Likenesses follows on from the argument of Reynolds's The Poetry of Translation (2011), extending it through other translations and beyond into a wide range of layered texts. Browning emerges as a key figure because his poems laminate languages, places, times and modes of utterance with such compelling energy. There are also substantial, innovative accounts of Dryden, Stubbs, Goya, Turner, Tennyson, Ungaretti and many more. Matthew Reynolds teaches at Oxford where he is a Fellow of St Anne's College and The Times lecturer in the English Faculty. It has been said of him that 'the best critics, like the best poets (in Browning's words) impart the gift of seeing to the rest: Reynolds has this gift of seeing and imparting' (TLS). His earlier books are The Poetry of Translation, The Realms of Verse 1830-1870, the novels The World Was All Before Them and Designs for a Happy Home{/i}, and editions of Dante in English and of Manzoni.

"Survival is not limited to the fittest but survival is limited to those that know the value of defeat and are not willing to take the charge. Instead they maneuver and learn and at the right moment counter any motion that is meant to cancel their progress with an attack of their own. It's almost like war in a sense. Survival is war." Working as a journalist for the Philadelphia Daily was a change of pace for a man who was once a trained Marine Corp assassin and linguistics specialist deployed during war. He made the most of the opportunity after surviving the Guatemalan jungles followed by action in the NATO lead Kosovo conflict. Mason Sessions now had to survive the battlefield of a cold, wintery Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was summoned by his Top, The Boss and former Army Ranger with secrets of his own to chronicle the death of a Marine murdered in Camden County's nearby Pennsauken but the assignment changed when Mason had to use his skill of language and military knowledge to assist local law enforcement with the bizarre murder. A bizarre murder with an encrypted Victorian Era poetic twist. Fortunately for Mason, he was paired with the astute, quick-witted and equally beautiful Orinda Costa to bring a feminine brilliance to assist. In order to find the poetic killer, she needed access to Mason's mind to unlock the past. Because of how he felt for her he allowed it but not without some assistance to ease his anxiety that was given to him for free courtesy of the United States Marine Corp. It wasn't until they deciphered the murderer's message that they learned who was next and time was not their ally. Scars of war aren't always visible through stitched wounds and amputations because the brain holds secrets that body doesn't allow. A Soldier's Heart is always in the right place but war is never one of those. Slivovica Mason will tell a story of struggle, secrets and survival.
