✏Selected Poems and Translations Book Summary : For critics like John Ruskin and Walter Pater, Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1892) was one of the great creative figures of the day, a painter and a poet of major stature. Yeats and the young Pound regarded him as an exemplary figure of solitary dedication to art and beauty. He called the sonnet 'a moment's monument', and his best short lyrics are instants of oppressed emotion cut free of time. In this, as in the suggestiveness of his imagery, he anticipates the French Symbolists. He can also be regarded as the founder of modern verse translation, not only for the freshness of his versions but also for his choice of poets---Villon, Cavalcanti and the young Dante. In this selection, Clive Wilmer has made a personal choice, emphasizing the 'pure poetry' of the lyrics at the expense of the more conventionally Victorian monologues and narratives. He has also included a generous selection from the translations, and provided a biographical and critical introduction.

✏Exchanging Lives Book Summary : Exchanging Lives brings poet and translator into a transforming dialogue. The act of translating the Argentinean poet Alejandra Pizarnik not only frees 'fixed and frozen signs' to migrate into another language, but brings about changes in Susan Bassnett's own writing. The collection contains four sections. The first is of translations from Pizarnik's Arbol de Diana (1962), that Octavio Paz wrote, 'does not contain a single false detail' and put Pizarnik among the 'finest Latin American writers'. The second juxtaposes translations of Pizarnik with poems by Susan Bassnett. These share common concerns as women, but it is a dialogue of difference as Bassnett, fighting for personal writing space from the clamours of work and the 'mothering/wings [that] hold back my writing hand' enters the world of Pizarnik, who described herself as 'a silent woman/ ... who sometimes flows with language', whose work speaks always of social isolation and not belonging. The third section, 'Asia of my imaginings' is a sequence of poems by Bassnett that could not have been written without the experience of translating Pizarnik's daring, subversive work. The fourth brief section condenses the recognitions of identity and difference. Book jacket.

📒A Paradise Of Poets ✍ Jerome Rothenberg

✏A Paradise of Poets Book Summary : A Paradise of Poets is Jerome Rothenberg's tenth book of poetry to be published by New Directions, beginning with his Poland/1931 (1974). In considering the title of his newest collection, he says: "Writing poetry for me has always included an involvement with the life of poetry -- & through that life an intensification, when it happened, of my involvement with the other life around me. In an earlier poem I spoke of this creating a paradise of poets.... I do not of course believe that such a paradise exists in any supernatural or mystical sense, but I have sometimes felt it come to life among my fellow poets and, even more, in writing -- in the body of the poem". In Rothenberg's hands, the body of the poem is an extraordinarily malleable object. Collage, translation, even visual improvisation serve to open up his newest book to the presence of poets and artists he has known and to others, past and present, who he feels have somehow touched him, among them Nakahara Chuya, Jackson Mac Low, Pablo Picasso, Leonardo da Vinci, Federico Garcia Lorca, Kurt Schwitters, Vitezslav Nezval. Kenneth Rexroth once commented: "Jerome Rothenberg is one of our truly great American poets who has returned U.S. poetry to the mainstream of international modern literature.... No one has dug deeper into the roots of poetry". With A Paradise of Poets, it is clear that this evaluation is as fresh today as it was twenty-five years ago.
