A Close Reading of the Poetry of John Quinn: Space, Place, Tone, and Narrative
 Vlad, Florian
2022 1-4955-1039-5 172 pages
"John Quinn is an American of the 20th and of the 21st centuries, though, in which what were once frontiers are now landscapes yet to be mapped by poetic imaginations. The poet roams and wanders from Alaska to Oregon, to the Far West and the Southwest, from Northern Iowa all the way to Henderson, Clark County, Nevada and further south. He also sharpens his individual sense of self and his sense of belonging to a collective American identity by definitions in relation to cultural alterity. " -from the Author's "Introduction"

A CRITICAL, DUAL-LANGUAGE EDITION OF QUADRAS AO GÔSTO POPULAR / QUATRAINS IN THE POPULAR STYLE BY PORTUGUESE WRITER FERNANDO PESSOA
 Pessoa, Fernando
2003 0-7734-6586-3 172 pages
Fernando Pessoa is one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century. This dual-language format makes Quadras ao Gîsto Popular/Quatrains in the Popular Style accessible to scholars who do not read Portuguese, and the preface and notes add a voice to the important, fruitful, ongoing debates about the role of the translator and the principles that should guide literary translation. Fernando Pessoa was himself a translator as well as a poet, translating Elizabeth Barrett Browning’s Sonnets from the Portuguese, and Poe’s The Raven and Annabel Lee, among others. Most of the 325 quatrains were written in the last two years of Pessoa’s too-short life. They are not readily available now even in Portuguese, and this is the first English translation to appear, making this edition valuable to all literary scholars.

A Jungian Reading of Selected Poems of Seamus Heaney
 Atfield, Joy Rosemary
2007 0-7734-5391-1 168 pages
This book is a study of the poetry of Seamus Heaney collected in his volume Opened Ground, in which the poems are read in Jungian terms. Heaney had referred to himself as “Jungian in religion” and naturally used terms such as “initiation”, “individuation” and the “unconscious” in interviews and essays. Therefore, key Jungian terms are examined in relation to Heaney’s poetic expression of these and explored through at least one poem from each of the collections represented in Opened Ground. This allows for an exploration of the creative tensions involved in the poet’s presentation of personal, poetic and political concerns, while also allowing for further examination of the powerful physicality and musical qualities of the language in which he luxuriates.

This initial volume of the “New Edition” of George Osborn’s nineteenth-century collection of The Poetry of John and Charles Wesley widens considerably the entrance into access of the original poems of the eighteenth-century Wesleys, as well as their translations and altered versions of others’ poetical works. This “New Edition” provides general readers and researchers alike with necessary background information relative to those poems–details historical, bibliographical, and biographical that Osborn omitted or of which he had no knowledge. This “New Edition” becomes an important research tool, rather than simply a polished reissue of a literary antique under new bindings.

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.

Aesthetics of Ralph Waldo Emerson the Materials and Methods of His Poetry
 Hudnut, Robert K.
1996 0-7734-8817-0 120 pages
Examines Emerson's aesthetic as a metaphysical poem about two things: the human act of creation, and the divine. In the transcendental frame of reference, an aesthetic becomes basically a religion and not a philosophy. This study constructs a deductive framework from Emerson's writings, which works from the ground upward toward the Emersonian ideas on art: the "Materials" of Art must be considered before the "Method" of Art, and from these is created a philosophical-theological mold. It particularly examines Emerson's indebtedness to Coleridge, and also mentions earlier influences on both of them, such as Kant, Fichte, Plotinus, Plato, et al.

This verse translation of the sonnets of Blas de Otero makes an important contribution to scholarship, given the importance of this post-Civil War poet, one of the first to explore the theme of the desperate (but doomed) search for God, and of brotherhood desperately seeking a voice in a world gone awry. The translation exactly follows Otero's form (usually Petrarchan), and the volume is unique in capturing both scholarly and aesthetic values. Includes an introduction to the essential themes.

An Experimental Reading of Wordsworth's Prelude
 Davis, Graeme
1995 0-7734-1245-X 204 pages
This interdisciplinary study examines the formal experiments of Wordsworth's 1805 Prelude in light of late nineteenth- and twentieth-century theories in neuroscience. To historians of science, the study argues that the central paradigms of dual-brain theory were advanced as early as 1805 in Wordsworth's experimental verse on the growth of his own mind. For literary critics, this study suggests ways of applying theories from neuroscience to the reading of literary texts. The study seeks to articulate a shared psychology at the center of the revolutionary poetics of the Romantics, also examining Coleridge, Blake, and other British poets.

AndrÉ De Resende's Poemata Latina/latin Poems
 Martyn, John R. C.
1998 0-7734-8331-4 568 pages
Resende was a true humanist, religious but free of bigotry, devoted to the Classics, a creative writer and a fine scholar on a very wide range of topics, interested in every aspect of Renaissance life and culture. Besides over 12,000 verses of Latin poetry, in almost every Classical meter, Resende composed biographies of Prince Edward and Friar Pedro in mellifluous Portuguese, of St. Gil in perfect Latin, a definitive history of Évora, an account of the battle of Diu, and various archaeological works. Many letters have survived, and he also published his Latin and Portuguese public orations and theological works. This collection includes a short biography of Resende and a large collection of his Latin poems, from about 1515 until his death in 1573, with both the Latin and the English translation. “John R. C. Martyn offers us an impressive work in this volume, ambitious both in scope and magnitude. . . . the poems are first edited in Latin (with an appended apparatus criticus); the English version follows with endnote apparatus which covers philological commentaries, explanations, etc. Each section of chapter 3 (autobiographical themes, Portuguese themes, Sebastian and Turkish themes, classical themes, nativity themes, religious themes, moralizing themes, and eclogues) is prefaced by an introductory essay which covers a metrical commentary on the poems, an analysis of the theme in relation to Resende’s poetry and to classical and Renaissance Latin poetry, and numerous bibliographical references. . . . Martyn’s work as an editor is of enormous merit, both in editing and commenting on Resende’s poems. . . Martyn’s paramount work is an incentive for future scholarly activity which will contribute to a better definition of the richness and variety of sixteenth-century Latin letters on the Iberian Peninsula.” – Neo-Latin News

Dramatic Speculation and the Quest for Faith in Lord Byron's Cain
 Brunner, Larry
1996 0-7734-4202-2 200 pages
Byron's "Cain" offers a documentation of his conflicting responses to religious questions. This text argues that, far from attacking personal faith, the play obliquely defends it by satirizing the narrow orthodoxy which seeks to suppress an authentic personal quest for religious truth. The play therefore embodies Byron's own sincere quest, offering both catharsis and affirmation. "Cain" illuminates not only the mind of the poet, but also sometimes hidden assumptions of his readership, both then and now.

Edgar Allan Poe's Biographies of Byron
 Bachinger, Katrina
1995 0-7734-1272-7 204 pages
This is the first systematic analysis of the seventeen tales of Poe's The Tales of the Folio Club. Before he wrote them, Poe had already established a reputation as a poet, and Lord Byron had influenced him more than any other writer. This close reading demonstrates how the Tales appear to be biographies of Byron in disguises, or even in a sense Byronic autobiographies, because their narrators and heroes often exhibit Byron's idiosyncratic mannerisms. The Tales prove to be seamless continuations of Poe's poetry, and major intertexts of Byron's life and works.

Emergence and Decline of American Literary Personalism. From Whitman to Bowne
 Schmidt, Bernard
2004 0-7734-6370-4 148 pages
Personalism was a philosophic movement centered in Boston and led by Borden Parker Bowne. His disciples, Albert C. Knudson, Ralph Tyler Flewelling, and Egdar Sheffield Brightman, gave it energetic if not long life; the therapist-philosopher Carl Rogers is its only well-known, modern proponent. The Personalist Forum is the journal for the small, hardy group of scholars who publish in this field. Dr. Bernard Schmidt argues with telling effect that there were literary precursors to the Boston Personalists whom scholars need to study if the movement is to be thoroughly understood. Walt Whitman published his article “Personalism” in The Galaxy in 1868. Along with his Personalistic declarations in Democratic Vistas (1871), it provokes the idea that Whitman was a Personalist who used his philosophy to undergird “Song of Myself.”

The book stresses emergence rather than decline. Whitman and Alcott were important voices in American Personalistic literature, the former speaking through “Song of Myself,” the latter through a clear and well-reasoned dispute with Emerson. Of course, both had other Personalistic pronouncements. So this study emphasizes the impact of Personalism on American literature; this has not been done before. It shows that Alcott had more to say in his letters, journals, and books than Emerson and more modern critics have allowed. Whitman’s reputation has been made, but his Galaxy article “Personalism” reveals an added dimension of his thought. With its cosmic optimism, it shares the direction of Arthur O. Lovejoy’s Great Chain of Being. Let not obscurity diminish the value of American literary Personalism, which comes to us in seminal form from Whitman and the lesser light Alcott.

Influence of Indian Thought on Ralph Waldo Emerson
 Acharya, Shanta
2001 0-7734-7629-6 268 pages
Between 1820, when Emerson started keeping his journal, and 1870, when Society and Solitude appeared, Indian thought played a number of complex roles in the articulation of the Emersonian self. Studies of Emerson’s Orientalism, caught up on the archaeological excavation of sources, failed to view his Indian interest from the broader perspective of the history of ideas. In tracing Emerson’s single great idea about the act of experiencing the world, this book establishes the relevance of Indian thought to the enactment of this process and the influence it had on his mode of expression.

Mountain Climbing as American Transcendental Pilgrimage
 Tobin, Dennis
2003 0-7734-6755-6 256 pages
Since 1920, climbers known as 14ers peakbaggers have climbed all fifty-four 14ers. Their personal narratives and literature indicate ties to American Transcendentalism, a religion promoted by Ralph Waldo Emerson. Personification of Colorado 14ers is achieved through archival, diachronic, and narrative approaches within a qualitative methodology. Two unique models developed by the author, the Transect Model and the Transcendental Ziggurat Model, assist in data retrieval and analysis. It identifies spatial, demographic, and narrative data of peakbaggers. A diachronic approach primarily focuses on Colorado mountaineering during 1912 to 1998 and the life span of Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803-1882. The Colorado 14ers peakbaggers, by exhibiting Transcendental belief and pilgrimage activity, create a cultural geography supporting American Transcendental pilgrimage.

Brings a fresh perspective to the puzzle of Joyce's styles, linking character and discourse in a humanistic appreciation of the author's artistry.

New Approach to the Poetry of Ezra Pound Through the Medieval Provençal Aspect
 Dennis, Helen
1996 0-7734-9010-8 516 pages
This study investigates both the medieval Provençal troubadours particularly studied by Pound (after Dante), with reference both to their canzon and to the medieval biographies; and the nineteenth and earlier twentieth century use of these, in romantic popularizing works, in the works of serious essayists and scholars, and by poets, especially Browning.These investigations elucidate Pound's own use of Provençal materials in developing his concept of poetry as the lost art of combining words with music, the technical études of Arnaut Daniel, etc. culminating in "Langue d'Oc", and the development of his persona method. This latter development is traced from early poetic sequences, through the major Provençal personae, to "Near Perigord", "Provincia Deserta", and "Three Cantos" (1917), which discuss the problem of writing a "poem including history". Pound's transition to the ideogrammic method of The Cantos is demonstrated by a detailed reading of the first seven cantos. Finally, a discussion of The Pisan Cantos shows how Pound's early studies of Provençal techniques, and of its cult of emotions which linked it to pagan rites of renaissance, led to his recreation of the troubadour ethos of Amor as Poesis.

Nicolas Filleul's Le Discours
 Hartley, David
2005 0-7734-6185-X 148 pages
The 117 sonnets of Nicolas Filleul's Discours are published here for the first time since their appearance in print in Rouen in 1560. The author was a minor provincial poet, who later had a successful career as a court poet and dramatist, frequently working in the service of the Queen Mother, Catherine dé Medici. The sonnets treat a diversity of themes. Filleul addresses poems to his two mistresses, aims satirical attacks at what he perceives as current abuses, and deals with a range of moral issues, speculating on the nature of honour and reputation, and the advantages of simple pleasures away from the life of the court. Among ancient authors, his principal model is Horace. He is also much indebted to Ronsard's love poetry and to Du Bellay's Regrets, published two years earlier and, like the Discours, combining the elegiac, the satirical and the moral. The purpose of the current edition is to make available to those interested in the field of sixteenth-century French poetry a collection of verse which only survives in the great collections of Paris libraries, and to facilitate the reading and appreciation of Filleul's first publication. While the sonnets may be uneven in quality, they are testimony to the variety and richness of the poetry of the time, and to the enthusiasm with which French poets embraced the revolution brought about by Ronsard and his colleagues.

This work offers the first translation of the neglected nineteenth-century French poet, Leconte de Lisle, revealing him to be one of the first and most talented of the multi-culturalists. A creole sage born on the Isle of Reunion in the Indian Ocean, de Lisle spent much of his life in Paris working as the national librarian. His work was respected by the major poets of his day, but his Buddhist sense of detachment caused him to be underappreciated. These poems are his most heartfelt evocations of the Orient and the island of his birth.

This carefully-researched study approaches Byron's Turkish Tales from within the field of Oriental perspective, contributing largely to the existing body of knowledge on the tradition of Orientalism in English literature. Byron's intimate grasp of the life of the Orient and his remarkable cross-cultural empathy and insights are pointed out for the first time in this in-depth study of his Oriental sources, diction, similes and characters. Moreover, the comparison of Byron's Orientalism with that of his contemporaries, such as Robert Southey and Thomas Moore, illustrates further why Byron stands out in his treatment of the Orient. The five appendices provide a valuable repository of data and more general information on the subject.

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 poesiås, 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.

Philosophy of Emerson and Thoreau
 Goto, Shoji
2007 0-7734-5351-2 208 pages
This book attempts to reveal the Eastern roots of the transcendentalist thought of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau. Not only modern England, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, but also ancient Egypt, Persia, India, and China were favorite hunting grounds of knowledge for Emerson. Thoreau recommended the Bhagavad Gita enthusiastically, asserting that the book deserves to be read with reverence even by Yankees. There was probably no one in the West who so ardently loved and recommended Hindu literature as Thoreau. Be this as it may, the Eastern side of both of these men’s thought is widely neglected in studies. This work seeks to mend this blind-spot in the scholarly approaches to Emerson and Thoreau.

Poems of JosÉ BergamÍn, 1895-1983 Echoes of a Distant Sea
 Garrison, David
1991 0-7734-9778-1 114 pages
A selective translation of 112 poems taken from BergamĂ­n's poetry, which has only recently received its deserved recognition and acclaim. BergamĂ­n, a contemporary of Lorca and Aleixandre, has been known primarily for his essays and literary criticism. Late in his life, however, his poetry was rediscovered, leading to two major prizes, republication of nearly all of his nine volumes of poetry, and widespread recognition of his prominent place among the group of poets known as the "Generation of 1927."

Poet John Hewitt, 1907-1987 and Criticism of Northern Irish Protestant Writing
 Ferris, Sarah
2002 0-7734-7274-6 244 pages
This study questions the validity of John Hewitt’s prominence in Northern Irish Protestant writing and asserts the need for a more accurate history of this genre. Confronting the received wisdoms of a highly politicized discourse, it undermines Hewitt’s status within it as a matchless, acceptable Protestant for a critically re-visioned Ireland. Challenging the substance of Hewitt’s self-representations as icon of cultural liberalism, radical secular dissenter, and verse-apologist for the ‘Planter condition’, this book shows that his elevation over the majority of northern Protestants is tenable only within an incomprehensive history of Northern Irish Protestant writing that diminishes other important figures. The study provides a framework for a more equitable study of Protestant voices.

Poetics of Loss in the Cantos of Ezra Pound: From Modernism to Fascism
 Selby, Nick
2005 0-7734-6055-1 288 pages
This book examines how the modernist poetics exemplified in Ezra Pound’s epic poem The Cantos are unavoidably bound-in with the ideological forces underpinning his advocacy of fascism. By highlighting Pound’s reliance upon a poetics of loss, the book’s close-readings of The Cantos trace his poetic development from modernism to fascism. It starts with Pound’s assertion – from the end of The Cantos – ‘That I lost my center / fighting the world.’ To counter such a modernist sense of lost culture and ruined history, however, The Cantos relies, paradoxically, on modernist strategies of poetic fragmentation and dissociation. Because Pound’s poem thus confirms the very loss it seeks to eradicate, the book argues that his developing poetic language throughout the poem tends increasingly towards fascism. In following this development, the book provides extended analyses of sections of the poem often overlooked by critics – The China Cantos and The Adams Cantos – as well as new and challenging readings of sections of the poem, such as the The Malatesta Cantos and The Pisan Cantos – that are more familiar to readers of Pound. Overall, it argues that Pound’s reactionary urge to redefine a lost culture, coupled with his sense of the textual annihilation of a validating poetic center, is the cultural ground upon which his ideal of the fascist republic rests.

Poetry of Roger Mcgough

Examines and evaluates the accessibility of McGough’s message to a wide, general readership, as well as appraising it by the most rigorous literary standards, and to challenge and answer the notion that his popularity and commercial success indicate lack of intellectual integrity. Rather than addressing his association with musical groups, or his appearances on stage, or television and radio performances, attention will be focused on publication and readings of his serious poetry, even in some of the children’s collections, but primarily in the more penetrating social satires such as Summer with Monika, Holiday on Death Row and more recently in Blazing Fruit, The Way Things Are, and Everyday Eclipses.

Poetry of W.H. Ireland (1801-1815) Including the Poet's Imitations, Satires, Romantic Verses, and Commentaries on Coleridge, Wordsworth, Southey, and Others
 Kahan, Jeffrey
2004 0-7734-6269-4 428 pages
William-Henry Ireland's footnote in history is secure: he is the boy who forged the "lost" Shakespeare play Vortigern. Ireland wrote a vast amount of poetry after his exposure, some of which was widely popular, yet to date, William-Henry Ireland's verse has received almost no attention and has, until now, never been collected, professionally edited, or even sampled for anthology. This volume samples Ireland's post- Shakespearean poetry, beginning with Ballads in Imitation of the Antient (1801) and concluding with his satirical Scribbleomania (1815).

Prayer and Piety in the Poems of Gerard Manley Hopkins the Landscape of a Soul
 Delli Carpini, John
1998 0-7734-8380-2 172 pages
This study focuses on poems that are either addressed totally and directly to God or the Blessed Virgin Mary; poems that are prayers in part; and poems that are meditations on a religious theme. It categorizes the poems by the topics most influential in shaping Hopkins' spiritual and poetic life: the Virgin Mary, the Eucharist, the dark night of the soul, spiritual wrecking, nature, attainment of spiritual perfection, and the resurrection of the body. It chronicles the progress of Hopkins' spiritual life and his efforts to minimize himself as a poet and render praise and honor to God as a priest, seeking connections among poems, prayers, and spiritual meditations, examining them organically by asking how they reflect Hopkins' erratic relationship to God. It also examines the poems in light of his sermons, letters, and spiritual writings which clarify his religious sentiments and complete the portrait of Hopkins the poet and the priest.

Romantic and Transcendental Quests of Ralph Waldo Emerson and Victor-Marie Hugo
 Young, Regina M.
2003 0-7734-6668-1 494 pages
This study demonstrates that there is a substantial philosophical congeniality between Ralph Waldo Emerson and Victor Hugo which has so far gone unnoticed. It shows many striking affinities, offering a fresh perspective on both authors. It examines how both Emerson’s and Hugo’s ideas and perceptions grew out of 19th-century Western ideology, as well as their personal psycho-physiological experiences of the world. In arguing for an understanding of Hugo as a Gallic Transcendentalist, this comparative study corrects one popular image of the French writer, that of a moody, eccentric megalomaniac and superficial trifler. Beginning with a lively cultural-studies analysis of both writers’ personal as well as socio-historical backgrounds, it examines specific, authentic 19th-century articles from French and American journals in order to shed light on what critics had to say about the foreign poet. There is also a collection and analysis of Emerson’s never-written ‘French Traits,’ Emerson’s perceptions of the French as a nation as expressed in his journal entries. The study then gives a detailed analysis of Emerson’s and Hugo’s main affinity: their Transcendentalist cosmogony.

SINGING WITH WHITMAN'S THRUSH Itineraries of the Aesthetic
 Will, Frederic
1993 0-7734-3046-6 212 pages
This is a collection of personal essays (on multinational sensibility; the godmaking impulse), letters (a mini-Bildungsroman in personal correspondence), scholarship (a study of several Marxist social critics; extended queries into Whitman's thrush-theme), and a tale (of revolutionary intensity in the contemporary city). The lead essay `Rearranging my shelves', is a prolonged meditation on book-classification , and all it involves in implicit assumptions about the organization of the intelligible world. The book probes the interrelations of loss and redemption, in art and the religious, and argues complexly for the notion of the artist as a priest. Finally, it brings to the surface fresh understandings of the tension between beauty and goodness, a perennial polarity for critical understanding.

Details one of the longest and most complex single poetic narratives in the English language along several lines: systematic use of multiple narrators and audiences which deepen the poem's sense of shared experience and impose a coherent structure on its temporal and other discontinuities; the alterations of confession, description, and retrospection in the frame and inner tales that enabled Morris to complete one of the fullest Victorian meditations on the creation of identity through frustrated love and sorrow; the flexibility and subtlety of the poem's various allegorical resonances and narrative levels; and the "stoic," aesthetic, and political implications of Morris' evolving ideal of friendship.
