As I Crossed a Bridge of Dreams Penguin Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"As I Crossed a Bridge of Dreams" is a unique autobiography in which the anonymous writer known as Lady Sarashina intersperses personal reflections, anecdotes and lyrical poems with accounts of her travels and evocative descriptions of the Japanese countryside. Born in AD 1008, Lady Sarashina felt an acute sense of melancholy that led her to withdraw into the more congenial realm of the imagination - this deeply introspective work presents her vision of the world. While barely alluding to certain aspects of her life such as marriage, she illuminates her pilgrimages to temples and mystical dreams in exquisite prose, describing a profound emotional journey that can be read as a metaphor for life itself.

Stephane Mallarme Reaktion Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

At the age of fifty Stephane Mallarme (1842-98) spoke of his published work as very precise reference points on my mind's journey. In "Stephane Mallarme", Roger Pearson charts that journey for the first time, blending a biographical account of the poet's life with a detailed analysis of his evolving poetic theory and practice. A poet on this earth must be uniquely a poet', he declared at the age of twenty-two, and he duly lived a poet's life. But what is a poet's life? What is a poet's function? In his poems, in complex prose statements, and by the example of his life, Mallarme provided answers to these questions. To Mallarme, being a poet meant many things: a continuous, lifelong investigation of language and its expressive potential; and bringing people together, as much in life as in poetry. His Tuesday salons were famous with visitors including Yeats, Rilke and Verlaine, as well as the artists Manet, Renoir, Whistler and Gauguin; his poetry inspired music by Debussy, Ravel and Boulez; and his poem "A Throw of the Dice will Never Abolish Chance" spread over 20 pages and combining verse with varied typography inspires poets and visual artists to this day.Poetry was a way of bringing all human beings together in heightened awareness and an understanding of the magnificent act of living. "Stephane Mallarme" chronicles a fascinating and utterly unique voice in French poetry. It will not only prove an essential resource for students of English and French literature, but an engaging book for anyone interested in nineteenth-century France.

"Ruysbroeck is Evelyn Underhillżs biography of 14th-century Flemish mystic John of Ruysbroeck. An ordained priest, Ruysbroeck was active for many years in Brussels before retiring to the Sonian Forest, where many of his surviving works were written. He is perhaps best remembered for conceiving of the żspiritual ladder of Christian attainmentż and its three stages of progress: the active life, the inward life, and the contemplative life. Unlike many mystics, he believed that the soul in its journey was capable of finding God but would never unify with God, maintaining always its own identity. And yet, though remembered for his mysticism, Ruysbroeck at times could be a traditionalist, forcefully writing in favor of historic Church customs. A highly readable and thorough examination of both his life and works, Rusybroeck is a classic profile of the man considered by some to be the greatest of all medieval Catholic mystics.British writer of prose and poetry EVELYN UNDERHILL (1875ż1941) was a fellow of Kingżs College for Women and Kingżs College, and was the first woman to lecture to the clergy in the Church of England. Through her radio appearances and her stint as editor of the political magazine The Spectator, she was a familiar voice in British public life between the wars. She authored more than 30 books (some under the pseudonym John Cordelier), including Concerning the Inner Life and Radiance: A Spiritual Memoir."

Divine Mimesis Contra Mundum Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Written between 1963 and 1967, The Divine Mimesis, Pasolini's imitation of the early cantos of the Inferno, offers a searing critique of Italian society and the intelligentsia of the 1960s. It is also a self-critique by the author of The Ashes of Gramsci (1957) who saw the civic world evoked by that book fading absolutely from view. By the mid-1960s, Pasolini theorized, the Italian language had sacrificed its connotative expressiveness for the sake of a denuded technological language of pure communication. In this context, he projects a 'rewrite' of Dante's Commedia in which two historical embodiments of Pasolini himself occupy the roles of the pilgrim and guide in their underworld journey. Densely layered with poetic and philological allusions, and illuminated by a parallel text of photographs that juxtapose the world of the Italian literati to the simple reality of rural Italian life, this narrative was curtailed by Pasolini several years before he sent it to his publisher, a few months prior to his murder in 1975. Yet, many of Pasolini's projects took the provisional form of "Notes toward..." an eventual work, such as Sopralluoghi in Palestina (Location Scouting in Palestine), Appunti per una Oresteiade africana (Notes for an African Oresteia), and Appunti per un film sull'India (Notes for a Film on India). The Divine Mimesis has a kinship to these filmic works as Pasolini himself ruled it 'complete' though still in a partial form. Written at a turning point in his life when he was wrestling with his poetic 'demons,' the true center of gravity of Pasolini's Dantean project is the potential of poetry to teach and probe, ethically and aesthetically, in reality. "I wanted to make something seething and magmatic," Pasolini declared, "even if in prose." In this first English translation of Pasolini's La divina mimesis, Italianist Thomas E. Peterson offers historical, linguistic, and cultural analyses that aim to expand the discourse about an enigmatic author considered by many to be the greatest Italian poet after Montale. Published by Contra Mundum Press one year in advance of the 40th anniversary of Pasolini's death. * In the history of twentieth-century poetry, there is no other poet besides Pasolini who has more tenaciously interrogated his own 'I,' more persistently contemplated it, admired it, examined it, analyzed it and dissected it in order then to show its suffering entrails to the world, as they beg for understanding, affection, and pity. - Giorgio Bŕrberi Squarotti *

To celebrate the 250th anniversary of Goethe's birth, Everyman's Library is publishing in a single volume his four principal masterpieces, together with a small selection of his poems and letters.Goethe established an international literary reputation overnight with The Sorrows of Young Werther (1774), a story of disappointed love and pathological sensibility which mounted a powerful challenge to the rationalism of the Enlightenment. His later novel Elective Affinities (1809) develops these themes further in a brilliant study of the tensions between social convention and the need for emotional fulfillment. Goethe's exploration of marriage, adultery, and the relations between the sexes is as relevant today as it ever was. The epic two-part drama of Faust (1805 and 1832) occupied Goethe throughout his life. It explores the nature of good and evil through a rewriting of the medieval German legend. This is a cosmic drama unlike any other, a reflection on the world, heaven, and hell in the tradition of Dante. The prose translation by Barker Fairley is exceptionally readable. Italian Journey (1816-29), written in the author's old age, recalls the years he spent in Italy as a young man educating himself. It is a vivid account of the enormous impact the Italian Renaissance and Mediterranean culture makes on a young Northerner -- a theme familiar from works by many later German writers including Nietzsche and Mann.All as readable as the day they were written, these four very different books demonstrate the variety and fertility of Goethe's creative powers, while underlining the consistency of his life-long preoccupations with man's destiny as a creature of spirit, reason, and feeling in astrange universe.The Everyman volume will also include a small selection of Goethe's lyric poetry and his letters. Goethe is considered the finest lyric poet of the German language and one of the finest letter writers of his or any age.
