Publishers Weekly on The Book of Things

Eight new poetry reviews appear in this week's Publishers Weekly including one for BOA's newest Lannan Translations Series selection: The Book of Things poems by Ales Steger, translated from the Slovenian by Brian Henry. "The prolific poet Henry renders Steger's long lines in an unfailingly fluent American English.Steger's efforts sometimes bring to mind such Western European figures as Francis Ponge and Craig Raine, who also sought to make household things look new and strange. Yet Steger brings a melancholy Central European sense of history--his objects tend to remember, or cause, great pain." Read the complete review here [PW on The Book of Things]
