A TRANSLATION FROM ARMENIAN INTO ENGLISH OF THE POEMS OF ZAHRAD, 1960-2004
 Yaldizciyan, Zareh
2012 0-7734-2557-8 272 pages
A first time translation from Armenian into English of the works by Zahrad, a renowned Armenian poet. The translations have been chosen by translator Sosi Antikacioglu from Zahrad’s eight volume collection which was published between 1960 and 2004. The poems demonstrate Zahrad’s optimistic style and how he takes an ironic look at the absurdity of human existence. The embattled common-man, or the weight of being an Armenian in Istanbul are but a few of his themes that are presented in a lighthearted manner, but which hold hidden meanings. Because his poetry is universal but concise, the translations in this book appeal to the English speaking reader. At the same time they show the unique culture of Armenians living in Istanbul today.

Abishag’s Lament
 Titche, Leon
2000 0-7734-1254-9 104 pages
Deals with the biblical figure of Abishag as a leitmotif, set in both past and present. The bulk of the scenes takes place in the deep South, beginning in the 1960s and concluding in the present. As a secondary motif, the figure of Aeneas is parodied, especially his wanderings, which are configured to the wanderings of the contemporary individual in the South. About the poet: Born in Louisiana, Leon Titche spent his childhood years in Arizona. He later returned to Louisiana and attended Tulane University, from where he received both his undergraduate and graduate degrees.

Blackbird a Book of Poems on the World and Work of Franz Kafka
 George, Emery E.
1993 0-7734-0031-1
In this, his seventh poetry collection, Emery George pays homage to the storyteller who has most urgently addressed our age. Arranged in three parts, the poems celebrate Prague ("Oh City, City!"), Kafka and his circle ("Franti_ek"), and selected stories ("Tales of the Frightened Imagination"). The Prague of Kafka's day was one of Europe's most beautiful cities (it still is). For Kafka it was a place to try to escape from. He felt claustrophobic there, and yearned for the open spaces of travel. He seems to have felt that the ancient and ornate buildings were like people: forbidding, staring, incommunicado.-- from the Preface

Blessed Be the Anawim Poems
 Canatsey, Kenneth
2002 0-7734-3445-3
These poems are, for the most part, meditations on Christ, on the oneness of his human and heavenly natures, and his compassion for those most marginalized by society. Anawim means the poor, the humble, or poor in spirit, in Hebrew. Although utilizing contemporary verse forms, they harken back in theme and sensibility to the Metaphysical Poets, such as Henry Vaughn and Francis Thompson.

Boogaloo
 Murphy, Remington
2003 0-7734-3485-2 62 pages
Cramped by the restrictions of the post-1945 personal lyric, Remington began experimenting with the masque, wondering if that Renaissance relic (exemplified by Jonson, Milton’s Comus, and Spenser’s Shepheardes Calendar) could be rejuvenated with a contemporary format. The masques in Boogaloo are arranged chronologically, and America’s place in history is the overriding thematic concern. Are we as a culture a 24-hour diner with a juke box and salad bar, an idealistic people with vision, a seedy neon-glittering gentleman’s club, a dysfunctional black-ops people, a people with an abusive past, headed for a fascist future?

Candlewood and Codfish Bones
 Maine, Carolyn
2004 0-7734-3574-3 64 pages
Fascinating are the tales of the bravery and heartiness of the women of Old Cape Cod. Many were descendants of the original pilgrims, but much courage was still required of women, usually very young, who dared set out on a sea journey from the old country to the new, whether persons of means or indentured servants; and once there, to live much of the time with their men away at sea, perhaps never to return. These poems try to recreate the daily struggles and hardships of these women, but also their joys and levity, in such a manner as may have been expressed in 18th century New England.

These poems string from a tradition of mystical contemplation, asking such questions as: How can one sustain an interior life in the midst of a material culture? How can a person bring the fruits of that interior awakening back into the world? The book moves freely between the unified polarities of contemplation and action, utilizing both free verse and metrical experimentation.

Compass Card
 George, Emery E.
2003 0-7734-3432-1 156 pages
The diapason of the present volume is joy and hope in our new century and millennium. The one hundred poems explore the formal as well as mimetic possibilities of the villanelle. Among subjects, music and art are prominent. There are cycles of poems in homage to Bach, Mozart, the renaissance German sculptor Tilman Riemenschneider, the late Joseph Brodsky, and one of the startling minds of our century, Arthur Koestler. The poems aim at being an experience in sound, but they also invite us to think. Problems of perception are broached, and social and political comment is by no means absent. Song and comment reach one of their peaks in “Exemplary Tale” (no. 67), a poem on two young people in love, one a Croat, the other a Serb, talented opera singers and both dedicating themselves to working toward a more peaceful future.

Critical Edition of the Complete Poems of Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey.
 McGaw, William
2012 0-7734-2917-4 652 pages
This is an entirely new and comprehensive edition of the Complete Poems of Henry Howard, Earl of Surrey, edited by William McGaw. The work fills in a gap that scholars and critics have lamented for the past two decades and complements a full-scale biography published by William A. Sessions in 1999. Surrey was a preeminent courtier under King Henry VIII, and was regarded by his contemporaries as one of the two major Tudor poets (along with Sir Thomas Wyatt). He transformed the Petrarchan sonnet into its English form, created English blank verse, and he wrote the first personal elegy in English upon Wyatt’s death. No manuscript or early printed edition contains all of his work. This edition has been enhanced by more recent research and by access to more sources. As a result, there are fifty-nine poems, forty-four songs and sonnets, eleven Biblical paraphrases with two prologues, and two books of the Aeneid.

The poem is unique in its autobiographical/narrative/didactic/epic character. The poem survives in three distinct and much modified versions. The study also examines some of Falconer’s other minor poetry.

It is written in the Haiku form most appropriate to the subject, and respectful of the traditions of those who made the poet so welcome.

Wadsworth’s published sermons and his “rhetoric of sensation” reflect the characteristics of the changing orthodoxy that arose from the conflict between the liberal Unitarians and the conservative Congregationalists. The tension of knowing and not knowing that existed between these two divergent and convergent faiths created the perfect literary situation in which Dickinson could thrive as a poetic figure. Therefore, this context will shed new light on the study of Dickinson and her work.

Emily Dickinson's Use of Anglo- American Legal Concepts and Vocabulary in Her Poetry Muse at the Bar
 Lambert, Robert Graham Jr.
1997 0-7734-8639-9 140 pages
Emily Dickinson's life was bounded and circumscribed by lawyers. Her grandfather, father, brother, and the men who were the first and last loves of her life were all lawyers. The biographical introductions consider these men and their relationship with Dickinson, drawing on letters and published writings. Other chapters discuss "legal" words and terms, Dickinson's knowledge of Anglo-American 19th-century law, her use of legal terms in her poetry, legal definitions and terminology. A secondary appendix includes photocopies of the Harvard Law School catalogue at the time her brother Austin Dickinson attended, 1853-1854.

English Translation of Leon-Paul Fargue’s Poemes
 Fargue, Léon-Paul
2003 0-7734-6685-1 132 pages
The introduction (by the translator) to this volume breaks new ground, and underlines Fargue’s importance both as a major poet and as a modernist. The preface by the important poet and editor, Peter Gizzi, will prove useful even to those who are very au courant with modern poetry. Fargue has never been translated into English, apart from a few poems in a Penguin anthology. St. John Perse, Joyce, and Rilke all considered Fargue one of the major poets of his age. And his best work, most agree, is the body of prose poems. These have the appeal of the flâneur genre, the kind of lively prose vignettes of Paris that Baudelaire made popular. This translation capitalizes on the visual appeal of Paris scenes, while also highlighting Fargue’s unique sense of the poetic, which was an important contribution to developing Modernism. Fargue blends Surrealism with a delicate musical stillness which evolves from French Symbolism. At the same time, Fargue’s often strange and unsettling images unfold a more personal sense of the poetic: his conviction that the poetic image is a return to, a re-writing of, childhood, an unlocking of the most intimate passages in time. Poëmes is Fargue’s first major work, a turning point in his writing, and an exemplary suite of prose poems. Facing page translations.

Geography of the Soul
 Record, Kirby
1999 0-7734-3101-2
These poems represent the experience of living in Asia and the struggle to find inner continuity between the external circumstances of living in vastly disparate social cultural environments (such as a Malay village and Tokyo, Japan), and the internal unity that derives from one’s own cultural identity and personal history. The poems reflect the integrity of soul in the context of geographical variation, and in doing so engage some universal themes.

Kphth: Fertile and Full of Grace Poems on Crete
 Kahn, Lisa
1992 0-7734-9437-5
In KPHTH (the Greek spelling of Crete), Kahn describes the beauty of the island, its palaces, the treasures of Minoan art, but also the local customs and traditions of the inhabitants. Interwoven with her observations are personal memories, emotions of joy and pain, love and sadness. Thus the poems are not just descriptive of Crete, but moving and interesting for the readers, who can project themselves into the lyrics.

Our Air/nuestro Aire Volume 1: Canticle/cántico
 Cobb, Carl W.
1997 0-7734-8420-5 272 pages
This is a representative collection of the verse of Jorge Guillén by noted translator Carl Cobb. Guillén used a wide variety of poetic forms, including traditional forms with rhyme and assonance, blank and unrhymed verse, and free verse. In a time of poets generally lost in the hell-hole of consciousness, Guillén set out to create a positive world of normal living, using a positive and courageous voice. In choosing the poems for this massive two-volume work, Dr. Cobb first respected the poet's own mature choices by translating all the poems he chose for his own Mis Mejores poesiás, a limited selection of the 'best' of his poetry. He has also translated all of his poems which have become anthology pieces, as well as choosing representative selections from Canticle, Clamor and Homage. Finally, he has translated a generous number of his décimas (a form he made his), a number of sections of his "Clovers" (a form he invented), and many sonnets. The result is a definitive representation of one of Spain's great poets of the 2oth century.

Poetry of Laetitia Pilkington (1712-1750) and Constantia Grierson (1706-1733)
 Tucker, Bernard
1996 0-7734-8866-9 200 pages
This volume brings together all the poems by the two women which are available in several eighteenth-century anthologies. This edition prints the poems in their original format as transcribed from the editions in the Bodleian Library. Notes have been added to explain references contemporary and classical, and a brief introduction sets the poets in their background. Because Laetitia Pilkington published her poems randomly interspersed in her Memoirs, this edition reproduces where available for each poem her comments from the Memoirs which often set the poem in context. A companion volume to The Poetry of Mary Barber (Mellen, 1992), this means that virtually all of the poems attributed to these three women are now accessible to scholars and students.

Poetry of Mary Barber (?1690-1757)
 Tucker, Bernard
1992 0-7734-9465-0 252 pages
The poems of Mary Barber have been transcribed from the 1734 edition of Poems on Several Occasions in the Bodleian Library. This is the quarto edition published by Samuel Richardson who was also a subscriber. The original spelling, punctuation and capitalization have been retained and, as far as possible, the emphases of the original. These poems enlarge for the 20th-century reader not only the body of 18th-century poetry, but also help balance the often frivolous and cynical view presented by the male poets of the period. In addition, for those interested in the complex personality of Jonathon Swift, Mary Barber and her poems throw new light on the Dean's supposed misogyny.

The major contribution of Spiritual Sonnets resides in the aesthetic quality of the poetic translations. The Sonetos espirituales is one of Jiménez's important books of poetry, which develops the specific and limited theme of the poet's soul in loving contact with nature, itself, and an idealized beloved. These translations follow Jiménez's original Petrarchan form faithfully.

The First Post-Modernist Poets-- Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson. A New Way of Reading Classic Texts
 Spedaliere, Jody
2017 1-4955-0527-8 124 pages
This work demonstrates how Edgar Allan Poe and Emily Dickinson utilized postmodern literary devices in constructing their poetry and why, therefore, they should be considered the first postmodern poets. It demonstrates how Poe and Dickinson are not merely influences on postmodern poets, but they should be considered postmoderns based on their use and implementation of postmodern literary devices.

Translation of the Sonnets of Vicente Gaos
 Cobb, Carl W.
1997 0-7734-8418-3 272 pages
The major contribution of this volume resides in the aesthetic quality of the poetic translations. The originals are by a poet who cultivated the sonnet through his career, including during a period (toward the 1950s) when the sonnet was generally discarded in favor of social poetry, generally in simple prosaic forms. Gaos retained the traditional Spanish (or Petrarchan) form, and cultivated a high ideal which was subtly expressed in his poetry.This book is a loving contribution to an area of poetry often slighted in this century, but Vicente Gaos and his sonnets deserve to be remembered as a worthy addition to Spanish poetry.

Variety of Poetica Genres: Ars Poetica
 Christopher, Joe R.
2012 0-7734-3056-3 124 pages
A collection of poems that displays a myriad of poetic genres complete with references. It provides ample opportunity for students to learn about all the different kinds of prose poems, even the lesser known tropes. The first section of Dr. Christopher's book is titled "Theory", which has a number of poems about poetic genres: "Prose Poetry", "What's a Sonnet for?," "A Genre is a Norm," "Comment on Naturalism," "The Novel Has Replaced the the Long Poem," and others. He also comments on style, on literary movements, on religous verse, on writing conferences, and criticism. The second section is titled "Practioners," and it contains poems commenting on the works of other poets (beginning in the classical period) or parodying their works or (in a few cases) translating their poems. In short Christopher's work is not focused on one aspect of poetry as John Holland's Rhyme's Reason was about verse forms, but it belongs in the same class of poetry about poems. The book aims to toy with the idea of what it is to write poetry, even while evoking styles used by famous poets from the past.

Wordsworth Notebook. Moods of My Own Mind and Other Poems From Romanticism
 Robinson, Jeffrey C.
2002 0-7734-3431-3 80 pages
Continues the project begun in Romantic Presences (1995), Spliced Romanticism (Mellen, 1997) and The Life of Things (2001) - of recasting the language, imagery and events from British Romantic Poetry (principally that of Wordsworth, Shelley, and Keats) into original poems in a contemporary idiom and post-modern poetics. The title-sequence imagines an "inner world" of William and Dorothy Wordsworth during a summer (1802) of intense writing of poems and journal entries. Another sequence joins and reworks the language of Romantic poems with that of select twentieth-century poets.
