  • IF NOT, WINTER

    Anne Carson

    From the critically acclaimed poet and classicist Anne Carson: a brilliant new translation of the work of Sappho, together with the original Greek. During her life on the island of Lesbos, Sappho is said to have composed nine books of lyrics. Only one poem has survived complete. In IF NOT, WINTER, Carson presents all the extant fragments of Sappho's verse, employing brackets and white space to denote missing text - allowing the reader to imagine the poems as they were written. Carson says of her method of translation: 'I like to think that, the more I stand out of the way, the more Sappho shows through.' And certainly her translation illuminates Sappho's reflections on love and desire, her companions and rivals, the goddess Aphrodite, her own daughter, Kleis. IF NOT, WINTER gives us an extraordinary ancient poet brought alive by a brilliantly empathetic contemporary poet. Complete with Carson's introduction and notes, it will become the standard translation of Sappho for our time.

  • DEARLY - POEMS

    Margaret Atwood

    The collection of a lifetime from the bestselling novelist and poet By turns moving, playful and wise, the poems gathered in Dearly are about absences and endings, ageing and retrospection, but also about gifts and renewals. They explore bodies and minds in transition, as well as the everyday objects and rituals that embed us in the present. Werewolves, sirens and dreams make their appearance, as do various forms of animal life and fragments of our damaged environment.

    Before she became one of the world's most important and loved novelists, Atwood was a poet. Dearly is her first collection in over a decade. It brings together many of her most recognisable and celebrated themes, but distilled - from minutely perfect descriptions of the natural world to startlingly witty encounters with aliens, from pressing political issues to myth and legend. It is a pure Atwood delight, and long-term readers and new fans alike will treasure its insight, empathy and humour.

  • Espagnol Poesía Completa

    Jorge Luis Borges

    Además de extraordinario narrador y ensayista, Borges fue un excelente poeta. De hecho, puede decirse que la poesía es el alma de su obra. Indisociables de sus cuentos y ensayos, estos poemas son parte indispensable del universo borgiano y constituyen una indagación paralela a los temas que siempre le apasionaron: los libros, la memoria, los laberintos, los espejos, Inglaterra, el amor o la eternidad. Dueño de un fino oído y una deslumbrante capacidad para crear imágenes memorables, Borges revive en sus grandes poemas la intensidad que recorre la gran tradición occidental desde Homero hasta Eliot. Antes que el sueño (o el terror) tejiera mitologías y cosmogonías, antes que el tiempo se acuñara en días, el mar, el siempre mar, ya estaba y era. ¿Quién es el mar? ¿Quién es aquel violento y antiguo ser que roe los pilares de la tierra y es uno y muchos mares y abismo y resplandor y azar y viento? Quien lo mira lo ve por vez primera, siempre. Con el asombro que las cosas elementales dejan, las hermosas tardes, la luna, el fuego de una hoguera. ¿Quién es el mar, quién soy? Lo sabré el día ulterior que sucede a la agonía.

  • Ce recueil rassemble Journal japonais, composés de haïkus insolites et virtuoses, et Il pleut en amour, une anthologie des plus beaux poèmes d'amour de Richard Brautigan. Il fut un poète vagabond qui récoltait tous les indices qui prouveraient combien notre monde était absurde, drôle et beau à la fois. Poète du bric-à-brac et de l'enchantement, il parle comme nul autre de l'amour, du Japon, de la pluie et de ces « petits bouts de réel qui sont aussi minuscules que la pincée de sel qu'on ajoute à un plat si compliqué qu'il faut deux jours, parfois même plus, pour le faire cuire ».

  • Homme inclassable, Pier Paolo Pasolini a choisi la poésie comme voix première. Réunissant des poèmes inédits en français, cette anthologie se veut le reflet vibrant de son inspiration de jeunesse, toujours ample et touchée par la grâce. Sensualité des paysages frioulans et engagement politique s'entrelacent, chant de l'intime et poésie de l'engagement s'enchevêtrent. Habité par la révolte et par le sens du sacré, il lutte contre l'hypocrisie et donne à ses visions toute leur dimension mystique.

  • Il y a dans la poésie de Laura Kasischke la même mystérieuse beauté, le même génie des images et la même acuité que dans ses nouvelles ou ses romans. C'est ce charme singulier et hypnotique que l'on retrouve ici avec bonheur.

    Dans ce recueil, Laura Kasischke travaille - comme on ferait plier une matière rétive - le côté résolument organique de nos vies, leur violence, et leur inquiétante étrangeté. Elle explore la relation que nous entretenons avec les fantômes et les êtres follement aimés. Chacun de ses poèmes est un trésor que nous devons à sa délicatesse de ballerine et sa précision de médecin légiste.
