Dark Things

By: Novica Tadic

$16.00


Dark Things is a collection of poems by the leading living Serbian poet of our time - Novica Tadić. Novica Tadić's poems are dark, brilliant, spare, and ever-mindful of the enormous acts of evil that human beings commit against each other. His brief words radiate far beyond themselves, as do their silences. Tadić’s vision is cold-eyed, drawn from a life lived where war and totalitarianism have been the status quo for decades.

Diadem: Selected Poems

By: Marosa di Giorgio

$16.00


Translated with an Introduction by Adam Giannelli



Marosa di Giorgio has one of the most distinct and recognizable voices in Latin American poetry. Her surreal and fable-like prose poems invite comparison to Kafka, Cortázar, and even contemporary American poets Russell Edson and Charles Simic; but di Giorgio’s voice, imagery, and themes—childhood, the Uruguayan countryside, a perception of the sacred—are her own. Previously written off as “the mad woman of Uruguayan letters,” di Giorgio’s reputation has blossomed in recent years.

Flowers of Evil and Paris Spleen

By: William Crosby

$23.95


"I am moved by these translations, by mastery of both languages, plus the total absorption of the spirit of Baudelaire. Dr. Crosby. . . preserves the passion and verbal power of Baudelaire, the voice and rhythm of the verse. I recognize Baudelaire's voice in these translations." —Anna Balakian, Professor of Comparitive Literature, NYU, and author of The Symbolist Movement

Light and Heavy Things

By: Zeeshan Sahil

$16.00


Translated from the Urdu by Faisal Siddiqui, Christopher Kennedy, and Mi Ditmar



“[In Zeeshan Sahil’s poetry] There are simple images of the natural world, often in conflict with the world human beings have made, either literal walls (“Wall and Bird”) or barriers of the mind (“East”), as well as images of war, where a swarm of bicycles can stop a tank (“A Child’s Bicycle”). There is an innocence in these poems combined with a worldliness that makes them disarming. They attend to the harsh realities of post-Cold War Pakistan, while offering an obstinate hopefulness, regardless of the outcome of the effort.”



—Christopher Kennedy, from the Introduction

Mihyar of Damascus: His Songs

By: Adnan Haydar, Michael Beard

$21.00


"The poems in this collection, Miyhar of Damascus, His Songs (Aghânî Mihyâr al-dimashqî,) established a new direction in Arabic poetry, comparable to that series of breaks with traditional styles we find elsewhere at early moments in the history of modernisms: Mallarmé or Apollinaire in France, Ezra Pound in the Anglophone world, Ungaretti in Italy, Sikelianos or Seferis in Greece. Adonis's early poems in traditional metrics demonstrate his mastery of the recurring rhythms and monorhyme: but Mihyar shattered that. The authoritative aesthetic break carried out in this book is a break from within."-- Adnan Haydar and Michael Beard
